I'd never seen this show before seeing a bit this episode with Mychael's departure.
Didn't care for the name, couldn't focus on the show.
She seemed to want to have it both ways at the end, reminding her group about how strong she was, and then when parting saying something like "when you're in a group, they're going to get rid of the strong ones."
Either one of her statement passages was fib based and designed for public consumption, not reflecting her true thoughts; or it would appear to a 5 minute viewer (like me) who stumbled in that she had a bit of the clueless flu and perhaps her pals made the right call sending her packing. Otherwise, wouldn't she have accentuated something else than strength if that is what she believes the herd trys to rid itself of?
That's exactly why I thought she should have left the cooking up to the others. :nod
Word, RtvFan, Word. For me, it's not a case of Sour Grapes, in regards to continue watching the show. It's more a case of "What reason do I now have to watch the show?"

Bottom Line: Mychael threatened EVERY SINGLE MEMBER on her team, and as they said so themselves, "it's a game and a strategy and she had to leave for them to win."
Honestly, would ANYONE at FoRT or elsewhere watch a show with Timid Tim, the shy finisher that builds bridges in the middle of nowhere? Or, what about Aimless Amy, the whiner who thought that "if I only had a voice", she'd benefit from Mychael's leaving? I don't need to watch a show where the host is afraid of their own shadow. Here's what CBS has to say about Mychael's leaving: "Although her menu choices and skilled food preparation were consistently strong, her team members unanimously ousted her to protect their own futures in the game."
Yes, it's true: The meek SHALL inherit the Book Deal!
I'm going to watch this show for one more week, 'cause I want to see the smugness wiped off of Mitch's face and the other wannabe's when their SpaghettiO's get panned by the judges and ALL their arses get kicked of out of Connecticut!
lambikins..wow sweety.. lil angry? :whistle
YES!!! Now I'll never be able to finish that needlepoint pillow with Mychael's name on it and send it to her....pout-pout...

I was looking forward to her long stay as the group numbers diminished so that we could see how "Martha" she really was. I don't blame the judges for putting her individual project in the bottom two. As cute and convenient it was, it really didn't follow the rules of creativity. I blame, however, the group for eliminating her of the two. They made their dam now swim in it. :phhht
Mychael was my favorite contestant on this series. Her long lists of recipes for the series is very impressive. I'm sure Mychael will receive other business opportunities from appearing on this series.
I thought she took her vote off like a gracious diplomat. Personally, I think she was given an all around raw deal. I thought her team should have won this week and were far superior. I was not impressed by the outdoor toilet or sleeping quarters of the winning team. I can make better burgers in a few minutes.
I also liked Mychael's individual project. I liked the material used for her outdoor survival kit.
Mychael's elimination has leveled the playing field for the other team and given them a second reprieve after they were given a new team member.
I just took the time to re-watch the show and I'm madder than ever! :soapbox When they showed CB making their individual projects, they first showed Mychael. In a voice over, she told of how she wanted to "do something really creative, so I sewed this survival kit..." Operative word there....sewed!!!

I just wish that when the judges told the players which of the projects were the lower two, that they would also say WHY!! That way, Mychael could have let them know that she did NOT buy the Survival Bag, but sewed it from scratch.
Sometimes a person can do too good of a job. :hiya I'll miss you, Mychael.
I too think Mychael rocked. Too bad that the rest of her team is so insecure and voted out the only person who showed real skill and talent. I would much rather have an outdoor survivor kit than an acorn bag!
Mychael's closing comment to her group should have been, "Put THIS http://images.google.com/images?q=tb...ages/n0568.jpg in your ACORN bag and stuff it!"
