    What-all could Tom do? For all we know, his talents could be as bad as Heathers. He got eliminated during the very first episode, and frankly what he offered up then didn't impress me. He didn't even bother with food presentation

    I agree with not wasting their time with a shopping spree of 1hr. Sure only let them pick from a limited source like Sears and see what they come up with, but let them really pick and use their talents. I would much rather see what they could come up with.

    I find the blatant "subliminal" advertising for Sears hysterical, especially when you see them blur the labels on olive oil bottles!

    What's next, cutting the labels out of their clothes, in case we catch sight of them?!
    Still crazy, after all these shears

    I thought it was odd to pit three women against a team of four which consisted of a man who was more skilled at building which gave the team a big advantage.
    Well, that's a load of stereotypical b.s.
    Mitch's 'specialty' is floral arrangement, Kimberly's 'specialty' is carpentry. Where's the big advantage??

    I agree with Duxxy; anyone can hang wallpaper, but it takes ingenuity to come up with a different wall treatment. Even Mitch did better than slapping a coat of paint on (he went the extra mile to add some stripes) or hang some cabbage rose wallpaper up.

    Redneck Valentine

    Mitch, if you are reading this, I still want your cinnamon roll recipe!!!

    In honor of Mitch's "Ozark" persona, I thought y'all might enjoy the following poem. Happy Valentine's Day!
    (I had this forwarded to me in an email, so unfortunately I can't credit the author)

    Subject: FW: Some Guys Are More Romantic than Others

    A Redneck Valentine

    Kudzu is green,
    My dog's name is Blue,
    And I'm so lucky
    To have a sweet thang like you.

    Yore hair is like cornsilk
    A-flappin' in the breeze.
    Softer than Blue's
    And without all them fleas.

    You move like the bass,
    Which excite me in May.
    You ain't got no scales
    But I luv you anyway.

    You're as graceful as okry
    Jist a-dancin' in the pan.
    Yo're as fragrant as SunDrop
    Right out of the can.

    You have all yore teeth,
    For which I am proud;
    I hold my head high
    When we're in a crowd.

    On special occasions,
    When you shave yore armpits,
    Well, I'm in hawg heaven,
    I'm plumb outta my wits.

    Still them fellers at work
    They all want to know,
    What I did to deserve
    Such a purty, young doe.

    Like a good roll of duct tape
    Yo're there fer yore man,
    To patch up life's troubles
    And stick 'em in the can.

    Yo're as strong as a four-wheeler
    Racin' through the mud,
    Yet fragile as that sanger
    Named Naomi Judd.

    Yo're as cute as a junebug
    A-buzzin' overhead.
    You ain't mean like no fire ant
    Upon which I oft' tread.

    Cut from the best pattern
    Like a flannel shirt of plaid,
    You sparked up my life
    Like a Rattletrap shad.

    When you hold me real tight
    Like a padded gunrack,
    My life is complete;
    Ain't nuttin' I lack.

    Yore complexion, it's perfection,
    Like the best vinyl sidin'.
    Despite all the years,
    Yore age, it keeps hidin'.

    And when you get old
    Like a '57 Chevy,
    Won't put you on blocks
    And let grass grow up heavy.

    Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie
    With a RC cold drank,
    We go together
    Like a skunk goes with stank.

    Some men, they buy chocolate
    For Valentine's Day;
    They git it at Wal-Mart,
    It's romantic that way.

    Some men git roses
    On that special day
    From the cooler at Kroger.
    'That's impressive,' I say.

    Some men buy fine diamonds
    From a flea market booth.
    'Diamonds are forever,'
    They explain, suave and couth.

    But for this man, honey,
    These will not do.
    For you are too special,
    You sweet thang you.

    I got you a gift,
    Without taste nor odor,
    Better than diamonds
    it's a new trollin' motor.

    I would never do my walls in tissue paper and Elmer's glue. I have seen various beautiful textured wallpaper designs which look like fabric that is stunning in new homes. I was more concerned with the beauty of the end product and I did not find Darlene's creation in the least attractive or an enhancement to the work done by the other team members.

    Considering that Kimberly lost the challenge her carpentry skills did not shine as a real talent. The fact that Mitch's skill is listed as floral design made his other design creations like furniture even more impressive considering how quickly he completed products while Kimberly was still stripping doors.

    What would possess someone to try and strip doors while in a time crunch?
    I still cannot get over it. And she knew it would take a huge amount of time...she actually says, with a grin on her face "well I know what I'm gonna be doing for the next 12 hours!"
    To add to my wonderment, the baseboards and window sills were already painted as well, so why bother? The time could've been spent...hmmm...
    putting together exercise equipment, for example!
    Kimberly just bugs me, I used to like her but ever since her power trip started, I cannot stand her arrogance!
