Who can tell? Bear seems to be all over the place in whether you can ask for help, give help, withhold it, etc. If I were on the show I would be totally confused about what was allowed or desired.
I really thought the shelter team should have gotten the boot. They FAILED at their job. The team eliminated was guilty of .... what? Less compassion than Bear thought they should have? HE asked what they thought, and then eliminated them because of what they thought. I consider this a weak reason. If there were nothing else to judge on, then okay, because someone has to go home. But with the FAIL at building the shelters, send 'em home.
And I kind of don't like Austin much. He and his dad (Jim) are very competent, and Jim seems nice, but Austin has a smug and swollen-ego attitude. I don't think it makes them deserve elimination, but I would like to be able to smack Austin a few times. Please?
