I think Kate goes later in the show because she is bringing in the ratings which they, sadly, are probably judging from vote totals.
I first started really paying attention to this show when Emmitt Smith was on and he almost always went last or next to last and ended up with the votes to win. Of course, Emmitt has a tremendous work ethic and worked very hard to improve each week unlike that hideous soulless breeder.
Did Carrie Ann just say Kate had "grace". What a joke!
Bruno called her catatonic! Way to go, Bruno!!!
