I thought it was handled well. Only like one kid did not like it that much.

The show was rocking this week.

Greg go off and uses a bunch of sentence enhancers.

A storm comes in and knocks over the out houses.

The girl on the council for the yellow team is going to completely lose it. She should step down and let someone else from her team be on the town council.

Nice to see everyone complete the challenge this week.

BUTTTTTTTT

A microwave vrs a whole bunch of pizzas???? And a TV as an earlier choice.

I think the show needs to stick to 1880's-1910 type items to win as prizes imo.

I watched the show after seeing this thread and now it will be a regular part of my DVR schedule. What a great reality show! I have to say Taylor (the snippy girl on the council) is going to grow up to be one of those girls in high school that will drown when it rains because her nose is so high up in the air. *LOL*

I agree completely about the prizes. The fact that they put wood all around the micro doesnt change the fact that it's a microwave!

I agree, but with the choices they were given, I'm glad they chose the microwave over the pizza. I think a lot of the kids were mad, but in the long run they will see that it was the better choice.

Maybe I'm mean but I couldn't even feel sorry for Taylor when she started boo-hooing. She has been so rude and mean, and like the other kids said, I'm getting a little tired of, "Deal with it." She can sure dish it out, but she can't take it. Even at 10 she is old enough to know better than to keep saying that she doesn't need to work or to behave like a decent person because, "I'm a beauty queen."

I am really behind the kids who are looking out for the others and not just themselves. I am really proud of the job some of them are doing.

Yep, but it was the better of the two prizes.

The show is interesting, but it's pretty clear to me that the children are coached and manipulated by the producers. The whole thing seems even more contrived than other reality shows. Before you start feeling 'proud' of how the children are behaving or the bright ideas they come up with, you need to remember that they ARE influenced to do the things they do by adults who have a stake in the quality of the production.

Reality TV is only partially real.

We all know that it isn't completely real, but just let us enjoy it please! I do think most of the kids are taking this seriously, and I really enjoy the show.

Well This weeks show was much nicer.

Religion certainly is a touchy subject and it was really nice of the whole group to decide on the bibles instead of the mini golf course.

Nice of some of the kids at the town meeting to tell Taylor off.

Another deserving person for the 20 grand.
