PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

23. "RE: Episode 15, April 14, 2009"
Guess I'll go in order...

The challenge: I'm torn - I sort of wanted Felipe to win, just once, but I can't say why. But I'm impressed that Tara fell like she did and still managed to come back and win. And kudos to Mike for completing it despite his fear of heights.

The makeovers: They actually weren't as dramatic as what I'd expected. Sure, they looked differently than normal, but since we normally see them working out or in a t-shirt and sweats, that wasn't too surprising. I actually liked Laura's hair, and Kristen's too. Helen's looked a little better, but she could have played with it a lot more. Felipe and Mike looked better with haircuts. I was surprised at how much younger Ron looks without a beard.

The reveal: I didn't notice any awkwardness between Kristen and her husband, but if it was there it was probably more due to the cameras than some sort of underlying problem in their relationship. While the contestants are probably used to the cameras, the relatives are not. And I took Helen's comment to be about the relationship, too, and not the money. Frankly, since she is still far from winning it would be presumptuous of her to start talking about the money. And I agree Max's mom's comment seemed out of the blue, but it seemed like there might have been a cut in the tape, or Max said something the mikes didn't pick up. Or maybe they had had conversations earlier about that. Otherwise it was a completely random thing to say.

Finally, the vote: jbug, I hadn't thought about Laura wanting to stay to help Tara by eliminating Kristen. That actually makes the most sense of why she wanted to stay, unless there's stuff going on at home that she didn't want to return to. But what I don't understand is how some of you are mad at Ron for sending Laura home. In fact, I thought that his desire to send Laura home to help her was very sincere, because purely in terms of the game that was a terrible decision. Kristen is a much bigger threat to Mike than Laura is. Maybe with Kristen staying they'll have another vote at the next weigh-in, but that's iffy at best, since the rest of the contestants aren't necessarily aligned against them. But with so few contestants left alliances are quickly falling apart and it's too easy to fall under the yellow line to trust that an alliance will save you.
