One thing to remember, though - this is television. If all the kids just do exactly as they're supposed to and get along perfectly from day to day, then there's no show. Someone has to be an agitator. Every reality show casts the participants to create conflict. One move that I sense the producers made that didn't work this year was Greg vs. Blaine - the farm boy vs. the surfer. Too bad for the producers, they got along.Originally Posted by Leftcoaster;2701611;
I do think the council should have the option to give the gold star to no one. There are some weeks where apparently there is no one really deserving. I was worried they were going to give it to Taylor this week just because at long last and after the council carried through on their threat of withholding something from her that she really wanted she finally decided to pull her weight.
