His stint on the council meant he lost a few oppotunities to get the star.
He's a great kid though. Smart, articulate, hard-working, everything that the council is apparently looking for in a gold star recipient.
It looks like they have a few stars to give out next week.
I hope if they go the route of "everyone gets something" they won't all get $20,000. That wouldn't be fair to the people who actually earned their stars.
IMO, Taylor, for example cannot do enough dishes in the final few days to elevate her to gold star level if it means she gets the same cash award as someone like Zach.
