Haha... If Chelsea says "y'all get one and then we'll get one," isn't that the same as Matt saying "we'll split them"?
Quite honestly my interpretation of Chelsea's statement was "y'all" (meaning the men) CATCH one and then "we'll" (meaning the women) CATCH one. That didn't happen. Watching that scene did bring back childhood memories. When my Great-Uncle Paul was alive he lived on a farm in Kentucky. Our family went there a couple times when I was a boy. My sisters and I always had a ball in the chicken coop trying to catch the chickens. What Uncle Pauly told us was the "trick" to catching a chicken was to go for their feet. It was still a tough task but if you tried to grab it by its body, one second to have a fist full of feathers and the next second it's gone. Watch the scene again...THAT more than anything else is how Chelsea was successful.
She had the opportunity to earn favor by being gracious. Instead, she chose to tick the men off.
No question about it. Chelsea would have DEFINITELY earned the men's favor. But don't you think that would have ticked off the women??? No question in my mind she would have. The fire did not come until AFTER Chelsea caught both chickens.
if you think about it, the wisest thing to do was probably to swallow their pride and take Sabrina's original offer of the chicken.
100% in agreement. You can eat a chicken but you can't eat palm leaves. And what's it to weaving a bunch of leaves together. Sure it takes time, but all they have is time...until they're called for a challenge.
