    My husband and I TiVoed the scene and it seems that what happened was gravity, pure and simple.

    What really got me about cry-baby Freddy was that Hera actually caught the brunt of the blow and you didn't hear her whining or certainly not exploding. She simply commented on it in a matter-of-fact way.

    Did Freddy really expect the first one through to hold the gate for the others and become the last one through?!?

    I totally agree with everything you said, bamabrain!

    I have to say, Bolo was amusing when he was making fun of "supermodel" Freddy and how he wouldn't be able to model with that mark on his head.

    I replayed the tape in slow mo. It bounced back down. No one pulled on it.

    The great thing about this whole incident is that Freddy totally reminded me of one of my really good friends who gets all "tough guy" when he thinks someone wronged him intentionally. We laughed at Freddy's tantrum....the "I'll break you in half" comment got replayed over and over.

    What a wussyboy. Lashing out as if he's really gonna beat someone up. Here is what he looks like while yelling---->
    Poor Hera was the hurt one.


    I'm sorry anyone got hurt, but I sure am glad we saw it...it added a lot of drama, which I like to watch! Oh, and I agree with the 'bouncing up too hard and coming down on it's own".

    My husband said what would have been really great if Bolo had stepped up in front of Freddy and said, "Yeah, I did it, pretty boy."

    After watching the scene again, I can echo what has already been said.

    Hera didn't moan and complain and threaten to beat anybody up. She probably had enough sense to know that no one did it intentionally, so there is no use in making your look like an idiot.

    Also, I'm sorry, but who could be scared of Freddy? Especially when he was decked out in those big black frame glasses. If I were there, I would have had to tried very hard not to laugh.

    Maybe karma came back to bite him when he and Kendra finished just ahead of elimination and (according to his own account) had to eat his own puke.

    That would have been great.

    Bolo seems like a bit of a teddy bear, though. Lori's the scary one.
