That's why the knife incident bothered me so much. He didn't actually threaten her (I don't think she was even in the room), but what he said was so unexpected that the kids were kind of at a loss for words for a moment. They understood that his comment, along with flashing the knife, was not appropriate.

Hey Barbara, you think its because we've worked with kids for so long that this guy gets our radar humming?

Probably! We have more than just our own kids to gauge the world by. I watch the newspapers around here hoping to see certain of my former students in them (great athletes, singers, etc.) and praying not to see others.

AMEN! I've actually seen one of the kids I worked with in the paper. She'd been killed. Nasty. I hope thats the only time I see that.

I think they all figured her attitude was because she was the leader and that once she was voted out her behavior would change, then when it didn't they didn't know what to do.
Yep, major frustration with that girl.

Another week, another solid show.

Greg was great as always.

A whole lot less Taylor, YESSS!!!!

The Town Council did the right thing with all the nickels they found.

Another Challenge won and another perfect choice. I would have gone with the clothing as well with the old school washers and skipped over the coin operated ones.

The Blue Team almost won the gifts choices by themselves.

Loved the idea of using a whole bunch of messy food items with 50 cents at the bottom of it.

I loved the one kid that made all those necklaces for 10 cents. A great way to remember your time on the show after it is over.

Another deserving kid gets a gold star.

I didn't like Greg at first, but I was really proud of what he said at the end of the show last night. And he didn't say it in hopes of getting any reward, which makes it even better.

I was disgusted with Divad's campaigning for the gold star.

Yeah, Taylor was totally a non-issue this time. I don't know if she spoke two words on last night's episode.

Was it Mike who made the necklaces? I liked that idea too.

I was glad they bought some practical items with the money from the treasure, to keep the kids busy. Divided among that many kids, the money wouldn't have bought much for each.

The clothes they got were nice, and the free washers were definitely the better choice. I think they were having a lot of fun washing with them. A lot better than the washboards!

Jared made the necklaces and said he was the bill gates of Bonanza City.

I knew it was either Jared or Mike, but I couldn't remember Jared's name!

Now that was a fun episode of Kid Nation.

I loved the idea of a Talent show. Greg and Blaine in girls outfits was best moment of the show so far!!!!! They have many talented kids on the show.

Nice to see Savannah decided to stay.

The worst challenge to date!!! YUCK!!!

Would have been nice to see them win the paint. It would have given them something to do.
