    Manny, great job! You caught it all and told it well! The only thing I'm amazed about is that our gambler left-I thought for sure she'd be able to pull it off. That, I gues, is what you get for listening to a smack-talker talk the talk!

    Excellent recap, Manny!

    I cracked up over the guitar line as well.

    Great recap

    Its better than I could have written Manny, and I was there !

    And the jenga game was better than I could have played to. I was sweating just watching. I thought no way they last more than 10 minutes. The game went on more than 45 minutes.....another minute and I would have been on the news with the dude that threw the chair in the bullpen...

    great job manny, and thanks to everyone for the comments and for watching the show.

    Looking forward to comments after Mondays' show.. And if you missed it, they are airing it AGAIN tonight (Thursday)! so tell your friends to check it out

    It's too bad this is an ABC show, they couldn't edit their way out of a wet paper bag. I could tell that the game was very tense (I don't think I've ever seen a Jengo(tm) game go that far) but ABC should did a good job hiding it...

    I probably would have thrown a chair at William too...

    “National Watermelon Queen.” I’m still trying to figure out what that might involve.

    I have some news for you, Laurel . . . you don’t need a million dollars to start a punk band. You don’t even really need a fully-stringed guitar.

    She says that other contestants will think she’s the cute, sweet, little one, but she’s also quite “conniving.” Mothers, hide your children!

    She also says she’s humble. But not really. I just made that one up.

    If you check Mario’s notes, I’m sure you’ll find it in there.

    That’s right, she’s doing it for the children! And I set the Reichstag fire, signed the Declaration of Independence, and won 28 gold medals in the Tokyo Olympics.

    William, on the other hand, considered turning the show down because he feels he can make his own million. Whoopee for you. Whatever.

    I’d give you the play-by-play, but . . . um . . . it’s Jenga.

    If you would like to contact the author of this recap, you can send comments or a million dollars to: mantenna@fansofrealitytv.com
    Bravissimo! What a way to kick off the season.

    If I had a million to send you, Manny, I most definitely would. You have earned every penny with this witty and perfectly-executed recap.

    Looking forward to next week's!
