Also, did anyone notice that when they showed the tape of the actual fight to the other cast members, they left out all the taunting by Donnell? Maybe that part was edited out of the show, but I thought the other cast members deserved to see Donnell making all the gay refernces...
And why didn't Dave speak up for Abe? He kept saying to the cameras that he didn't think Abe should leave, but he never spoke up for him with others...
In general dont make any assumptions of what did or did not happen; as you know producers edit the show the way they want to create characters, for time, and to create a story. None of this is real and the only true way youd know is if you were a contestant or worked on one of these shows. As a former TV publicist, I got to see things from all directions as I dealt with people in front of and behind the cameras - producers and talent/guests etc.
I felt that Donnell should have been sent home too. After all, they were both in the fight and it seems to me that he was the instigator of the whole thing. Abe just finally had all he could take of his big mouth. He tried to walk away several times but Donnell just wouldn't stop. Abe did apologize but instead of accepting his apology Donnell just had to keep smarting off to him. He deserved getting punched a few times.

That makes sense and is sound advise for any reality show.
For me, Donnell always seemed to be an instigator. After Abe approached him earlier and wanted to get along, behind Abe's back, Donnell expressed how he picked on Abe and would continue to do so. I believe if Abe had acted like a punk to Donnell all along, Donnell would have brought that up before and after the fight. But he didn't. For some reason he had it in for him from the start.
I agree with that. I've just started watching Road Rules and news of Donnell's legal problems don't surprise me. He'll go far in life with that attitude.

From the nasty man in the mirror!

Donnell is just better at manipulating than Abe was a de-escalating. Seemed like Abe felt out of place the whole time, because a number of the other cast members made fun of him. Through in the constant pressure from Donnelll...I completely understand him throwing blows. Does it solve anything? Well...it got him off the show, relieved the pressure...didn't help Donell any, because he's still a simple manipulator.
I so loved how Donnell got tough after they all watched the video, classic. I also like the tough stance he takes before challenges that he knows he can't do. Pacing with that "hardcore" look on his face, before the balloon climbing thing, or the stair climbing. And his pouting when he fails. The guy is a wreck, plain and simple...I wouldn't want to be on a trip with him. He'd be too heavy to strap to the top of the RV...
