This time I was actually OK with who Bear sent home. Someone had to go and it's getting to the point where most contestants are on a similar level now.
I've never seen that type of fire material before, but when they were trying to light the fire, I kept asking my husband, "aren't they supposed to take that out of the package?! Why aren't they unwrapping it?" That combined with Madeline's uselessness made them the right choice this week.
I'm not sure the structure of this show is very well thought out. Eating random disgusting items every week doesn't add anything to the show. It's not fear factor. Having teams assigned to different tasks doesn't make much sense either. The obstacle team is a dumb idea. Different teams are in charge of leading the trek based on what they are looking for is just random (ie., now the shelter team is in charge of getting people to the campsite or now the food team is in charge of leading the hike to the food). Are they not supposed to help other teams if they have skills in the other teams area? Bear does not approve if people don't do their assigned item alone and also does not approve of people not working as a team. Too many mixed messages.
I don't think the teams should be assigned to different tasks. Everyone should help with everything and let the chips fall where they may based on contributions. And they need a different way to send people home rather than just Bear's opinion.
I don't mind Lucky & Louie. I thought they were sweet on last night's show.
