Utopia Friday, October 31st, 2014 **Note: Because Utopia was preempted last Friday, some of this recap information is not new to you, but it IS the first time we get to talk about the mass exodus of pioneers. Enjoy!** This Time And then there were 12. We get to see three Utopians walk through the gate never to return. A very "G" rated Halloween party was really XXX. Aaron says his "mission in Utopia is done" don't believe everything you see on TV. Amanda's sisters visit and Bella fights about what else? Food. Two weeks without a food fight, I know you missed it, don't lie. The Government Loves Me, It Loves Me Not Bri's turn at governing what not really a Government, a lot of them lately have been platforms to yak about how they feel, not set up rules or a foundation to live by. One of Cal's and Rob's biggest beefs lately has been that Utopia needs a mission statement, essentially goals to (not) live up to. Bri did a mental acrobatic flip-flop as she went from a totalitarian dictatorship (because remember she said Hitler may have gotten it right) to something called Love, Unity and Community. It almost ties your brain in a knot doesn't it? In any case, the general gist was to hug your neighbor I think, everyone does their best impression of a sloth and gets the hugging done. Mission Accomplished! The Ghosts of Utopia The live feeders have taken up residence in Utopia but, instead of an unseen, unfelt presence, we have finally graduated to Poltergeist status. WE now choose which three Utopians will be put up for replacement (see the new rules), we also choose which pioneer is the most productive and conducive to Utopia's success and reward that person with gifts. The pioneers still get to choose who to ultimately send packing, but giving us a chance to be involved and squash the cliquish behavior like an unwanted bug has been incredibly good fun. The fact that we get to do this EVER TWO WEEKS is even more satisfying. So if you are still not a "passport holder", that's a fancy way of saying you signed up on Utopia's website, you should do it now and get to bug squashin' and head patting, its free and comes with two camera views. (Also, they don't spam you, thank God) The Everlasting Gobstopper Food Fight Maybe you can help me out here, I know you come here for the latest information, but Bella's organic food situation has me at a loss. Bella has brought in, to date, about $5,000. That is 20% to her personally and 80% to the group fund. If Bella wants $125 a week in organic food purchases, why can't she just pay for it herself? She seems to be asking the group for $125 out of the group money for her food and taking the 20% from her painting business on top of that. I am not sure why this turns into a fight every week when she tries to put in a food order. They each have individual debt cards now, if she can afford it great, if she can't ::shrug:: she eats leaves and dandelions all the time anyway, not sure why this fight keeps happening. This scene was typical of all the another food fight melt downs only this one had chocolate on top! Mike wigged-out on Bella saying he "only gets $52 a month" for extras, and she wants over $400!! He then takes the dark chocolate bar Bella bought for a snack (anti-oxidants and all that you know), smashes it on the table, ate pieces off the floor, went around giving out pieces to everyone that wanted some and was generally being a big baby. He and Aaron specifically went after Bella (not seen on TV) telling her "ten days Bella, just ten days and you are gone" it was pretty ugly, and made for hysterical viewing online. The Cool Kids Club has been terrorizing Bella publicly and Nikki privately on and off since the beginning, telling Bella that her days are numbered. They have stolen her art, pushed her buttons (and she has alot of them) and have just been generally smug about them being in control. Problem is VIEWTOPIANS took over!!! It's not Bella that's likely to be put on the chopping block this week. The Very Adult Halloween Party ("Not" As Seen on TV) I'm not sure how to tell you all this, but people had sex. Many people had many kinds of different sex. Instead of gory details, let's just say at least half of our Utopians had a happy ending. Josh had a threesome in the bushes, Mike got lucky with Melissa (the fan girl) in the love shack. Chris was more discreet, but admitted to some action. Taylor and Hex hooked up, and Dedeker and Jake (the BeeKeeper) also sweated it up in a teepee/fort looking thing Cal built for women on their periods. Don't ask me, I was ick-ed out with just that little bit of info about the place. We saw an online friend of Utopia @bunnylovins show up with her husband dressed as "mootopians", very cute onsie cow costumes. They kindly left them for Nikki and Amanda to wear, keeping them warm and adorable for the whole winter we hope! They also hired a band that turned out to be impossibly cool and kept the party alive with cover tunes, but it turned out their own music was even better. Check them out Mursic. I'm not into giving shout outs, so don't ask, but the mootopians and the band just couldn't be ignored! Utopia Experiences Colony Collapse After Josh reads the letter delivered by production telling the Utopians the online viewers were now in control, the reactions were priceless. The Cool Kids were angry and distraught, (hmmm, I wonder why) everyone else seemed to find the new rules good, great or really interesting. Hex thinks because she is not a "girly-girl" she will be nominated, but Bella thinks "it will take away from tearing people down and turn it into supporting each other more". She also said "people on the outside, namely us, "see what they don't". Yes, yes we do. Josh thinks it's not about the most work, it's about contributing in a positive way. Cal readily agrees. Rob says "up to today we were going to bounce Bella's big butt right out the gate", now he thinks he is going up for replacement. Dedeker and Kristen think it's about being seen getting up early and going to work. Ernesto and Josh have it figured out, if you're a jerk, American is going to call you out on it. Aaron thinks "it won't be about who works the hardest, it will be 'I don't like you' because they saw me and Rob attacking Bella". Right on Aaron! (btw Aaron thinks it will be Bella and Josh up for replacement, delusional much?) Live viewers are a little drunk with so much power, makes you wonder if we are going to turn into power hungry monsters every two weeks and start demanding a cut of the group fund! After Amanda (yes, we noticed Rob is no longer the spokesman of Utopia, hmmm) announces that Aaron, Bri and Rob are nominated for replacement the group goes their separate ways. Bri sits down with Rob under a tree and wonders why America has chosen her twice now. Bri says "If you can't even have love, what is the point of this?" "**Sigh**... Whatever... I'm going home." AND SHE DOES!! She got right up, walked straight to the gate and was gone, POOF! That was no TV editing trick, that is exactly how it went down. Chris packed up her things and wrote her a letter. We hope it started out with "I know I was a complete jerk and treated you like crap...". Next we have Mike. While the kids Halloween party (for Charity) was going on the day after the x-rated adult party, Mike got some information from production. They told him his father had called, something was wrong with his mother and he had to get home immediately, production had a ticket waiting for him. While we find out later it was not life threatening, we wish Mike and his family all the best of luck during this time. Mike will NOT be returning to Utopia. Conspiracy theorists WARP 10! Time to Play: Beg For Your Life I have to admit, I hate this part of the process, bringing people in to beg to stay in any reality show is usually pretty uncomfortable. That being said, here is how it went down. Aaron said "I have not been the nicest guy and I have been pretty unapproachable", but his mission is not done. This is exactly the opposite of what he really said. He said he thinks he IS done in Utopia, and that Rob is the better person to stay. I am not quite sure why Fox choose to edit his speech that way, because the Utopians used Aaron's speech for discussion on who to vote out many, many time. (See the full vote here). Rob says he has been in a funk since Jess left but he thinks Utopia can really be something and he wants to be a part of it. Here are the results. For Aaron to Leave Nikki - She was going to vote for Rob, but Aaron says he is done Cal - Ditto to what Nikki said, Aaron says he is done and Rob wants to stay Josh - Rob has something to add to the community Taylor - Aaron says he is done Amanda - Rob wants to find a purpose, Aaron says he is done Hex - Rob is my BFF For Rob to Leave Kristen - She still has things to learn from Aaron Ernesto - Mumble, mumble Rob should leave Bella - She has hope for Aaron who wants to change Chris - Rob threatened to walk out on us Dedeker - The right choice is not the one I want That made it six for Aaron to leave and five for Rob. At the last minute when the hands were raised and discussion was closed, Josh changed his vote and Rob was sent home to Jess. Taylor and Hex completely broke down, Taylor hitting things and Hex just sobbing uncontrollably. Rob said "don't be sad, I'm going to see Jess" Side Show Freaks & House Keeping Amanda has a twin sister! Her name is Amy. Amy and Amanda's older sister Alex came to visit and half the people online and in Utopia wanted them to stay forever. Hex, Taylor and Cal all got letters from home. Well, Cal got a letter from his commune in Oregon. He invited Bri to the commune before she walked out and Chris who doesn't care what Bri does at all, was so jealous he wanted to kick Call's ass. We saw Jake and Mike get in to it this episode, here is the full ridiculousness of it we covered in last week's recap. Mike vs Jake the Beekeeper Part1, and Part2. Aaron's emergency room visit for the attack of the ear plug turned out to be nothing. He claimed he may have ruptured his ear drum taking his ear plug out too fast. But Fox didn't even see fit to cover it. Maybe Aaron just needed a mid-day outing in an ambulance. Josh is exempt from replacement this voting cycle, but we can talk about that later. Next Time We already have two new Utopians (whom I secretly love so far), James and Jeremy. Jeremy brought tractor parts with him and his mission is to get the damn thing running. James I think brought hair dye and is re-making Bella. I can't wait! The voting is now open to kill off yet another three pioneers, you can only vote once, so make it count! That's it fans and hate-watchers. Let us know if you have any questions, and leave us any comments you are dying to make.
Utopia Friday, October 3rd, 2014 This Time "Every society needs new blood" so says our very strange host Dan Piraro, but our Utopian's are more focused on kicking out "old blood" on this episode. Kristen takes a stab at converting the government of Utopia into a Corporation and ends up selling Josh as her first official act. Capital(ism) Sales Meeting Let me first say, this would have happened much sooner if it wasn't for Bella. Bella through a huge fit many weeks ago about "being in charge" and Kristen was convinced (by production) to give up her 3rd place in line for choosing a government in order to placate Bella. There was a much, much longer discussion of this new government than was shown on tonight's episode, I will endeavor to fill in a few gaps. You should know going into this "capitalism as government" that it is Kristen and AARON'S baby, although he leaves her hanging at the meeting. So, let's see, Kristen's motto in life is MONEY. She wants to divide up Utopia into private and group businesses. No government really, after all a capitalist society will be self-correcting right? The split will be 60/40, you keep 60% of your private business money and 40% will go to the group "fund". If you don't have any skills or ideas for a private business, or don't have the money to buy supplies, you can work for her or Aaron and they will give you a very small percentage of the money they make off your labor. As you might imagine many of our Utopians were distinctly unhappy. Josh's said "that is not capitalism, it's greed, and if making money is your priority, that's not what this is all about. For anyone working in the garden, the barn or on construction there is no incentive to keep doing it, they only make $37 a week. Why should they do any group work at all? Shouldn't they just work on their private business and make real money? Rob says they will just vote out the person that is making the most money and take over their private business(lol). Amanda asks what's to keep them from competing against each other and under cutting the price to steal customers? Josh says he'll just sabotage your businesses and run off all paying customers (and Mr. Shorty, Shorts Sunday can do it too). Is it getting hot in here? Hex points out that Ernesto, Taylor, Josh and Rob will all be forced into selling their labor and it will deteriorate into an owner vs. labor class system. Dedeker says she doesn't even want to run a business, what is going to happen to her? As Rob correctly points out, Dedeker would be on "welfare" from the group fund. Aaron finally blows his top and asks them "where do you see yourself going??!! Are you happy with just $37??!! While Kristen is in the kitchen Amanda says "your idea of Utopia is Capitalism right?" Kristen says "yea, capitalism, but individual growth that helps the group succeed". I think she has that line written on her hand. Amanda, "you don't have kids right? Who do you have to support?" Kristen, "myself and my dog" Amanda "well here you have 14 other people to support". That is the last straw for Kristen, very few people are on board with her ideas. She meets Aaron out by the pasture were she is usually talking smack about her fellow Utopians, only this time it's her crying over Amanda's grilling of her. She wants to go home but Aaron reassures her that she is needed here, and that Amanda is just "afraid", because according to Kristen all the Utopians except her and Aaron are "afraid of success because they are afraid of failure". By the way, Kristen's private business is "Marketing", that puts her finger in everybody else's "private business" pie. The Utopians go on and on about this subject and I am sure it will rear its ugly head many times in the future. The Vote after the Vote With Bella, Bri and Red up for replacement it's time to get on the campaign trail. Well, everyone but Red that is, he says "the vote don't matter" to him, and oh ya, "you can't fix stupid". Bri goes around telling everyone her Utopia is about unity, love and peace for as long as she can hold you down. Most of the pioneers don't know anything about her because she was "Bris" for the first four weeks, now that's over, she needs you to know Utopia is about LOVE. Bella explains that she is a "worker", her problem, she says, is she works too much. Now she is going to relax and make money painting. I'm not sure Bella understands how to campaign. Rob is leading the charge to boot out Red, and he used the meetings to be sure everyone knows it too as he is always the host. Josh is recruiting votes left and right to get Bri out, he is convinced America saw her doing some nefarious thing on the live feeds and that's why we voted for her. He cannot tolerate someone doing something behind his back that he doesn't know about and so Bri has to go. Before the meeting we find out that Red has been at the ER for the past two days. How are they going to pay for that I wonder? Do the Utopians qualify for Obamacare? Anyway, he is pretty emotional about his finger, he got an infection you see and it went to the joint, he was malnourished (not sure how that happened since he buys all his own food) and his immune system had completely quit, he almost died. But thanks to his "hero" Dr. Nikki who simply told him to get it looked at, and some heroic saline solution he will LIVE!!! (Just not in Utopia). At the vote meeting, each of the three nominated Utopians gets to plead for their lives. Bella says she is sorry for being a "Garden Nazi" (which made me think of a garden gnome dressed up as Hitler) and "she really wants to be here", she even wore makeup and brushed her hair and she looked so sane I almost didn't recognize her. Red says there is communal living here, but if you give him individual freedom "we can git 'er done". Bri cries her way through her speech, she apologizes for screwing up the barn, and "she really wants to be here". Here are the results of the vote: Bella Chris - she is not a good person for Utopia Bri Ernesto - based on her performance Josh - the barn is a disaster and 100,000 people that voted for her online can't be wrong. Red Rob - can't forget how many times he walked out on the group Aaron - because he likes Red the least Kristen - says Red is irrational Amanda - not a good fit Hex - Red is useful only when he wants to be Taylor - thinks Red is an infection in the group Dedeker - the group changes to much to suit Red Mike - Red is a squeaky wheels and demands the grease. Nikki - Red is not in the same experiment as everyone else So with nine votes, Rob lets Red know that everyone loves him, but it's his time to go. Red says "this is not my project and I have a wonderful life outside". He gathers his stuff and walks out gate. Side Show Freaks & House Keeping We learned more about Josh's date night. Kristen sold him for $200 and Josh got somewhere between 5%-10%. Seems fair right? Josh developed a bucket delivery system from the house to the old fire pit, why you ask? No reason, just because. Mike met Melissa the "fan girl" on Sunday and made out with her. Everyone found out including Dedeker who said "that's awesome!" Next Time Two new rats possible Utopians arrive. Mike-topia is unleashed upon everyone and somehow Judge Judy is involved. Nikki becomes ill and Aaron becomes rude and disrespectful. See all of you next Friday!
Utopia Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 This Time Who voted for whom? Bri who obviously entered the Utopia environment at way to steep an angle is burning up. Bella finds new skills, and Hex is worried Utopia is not unique. Bri, Ouch, Ouch! OUCH! When your boyfriend is telling his buddies that he is not attracted to you anymore, I'm guessing it's over. When the other pioneers find out you are cutting the cow's food down just to save money, I'm guessing (again) it's over. Our Bri tries to make amends with Chris by writing down her innermost feelings in a letter and giving it to him. She waits for him to lie down in his corner of the barn, gently gets down on her knees and gives him the note, he tosses it on the box next to him and tells her he will read it later (ouch). She says "it's ok if you want "this" to be over, I just don't want it to be weird". We heard this same line the day before Chris's birthday, but they both succumbed to "birthday sex", although Chris did make her move out of his corner of the barn and live on her own. Chris says "you made it weird" Bri asks what he needs to feel better, and he says "space and time". Oh, ya, and he wants his sweatshirt back, and that black shirt too (Ouch!). With the vote looming, Momma Bear Amanda sits down with Bri to discuss who really is the "least productive member". Amanda has been speaking with other pioneers and Bri's name has come up several times. As Amanda a Bri milk one of the cows, Bri says coyly "who did you say you were voting for?" Amanda, "well Bri, I was actually thinking you." (OUCH!) If I was Bri I would have tapped out right then. Bri bravely goes on talking about "her" Utopia being about Love (because we know it's not about the starving barn animals). The Barn Apparently the Vets watch the live feeds! who knew? Not Bri, the vets watched her reduce the amount of feed to the pregnant cow, and the milk producing cow until they decided they needed to intervene due to a "marked difference" in body appearance. Red has been taking on the care and feeding of the animals for a long time now. The vets are impressed with his knowledge and attention to the animals. The vets gently explain why Bri should let Red take care of the animals from now on. Red gets on to Bri later and says you can call yourself a vet assistant all you want but the group comes to me to make sure you have ordered the food for the animals because they know you forget and they don't trust you. Red tells the group that he doesn't want Bri to get voted out because she is the only one that can help birth the calf who's birth IS imminent, in fact so imminent, it is born in the next paragraph. Congratulations, it's a girl!! CASH is born!! They name the new calf Cash (as in Cash Cow), we don't get to see how this happens, only Hex screaming that the calf has been born and a shot of Bri with a towel helping to clean the new born up. They want to sell the new calf so it has to be removed from its mother right away and be bottle fed. This is extremely upsetting to Bella (I have to admit a mild upset myself), who wants the calf to be able to drink from its mother milk. The mother is none too happy about the boys running off to the barn with her new born daughter either. Cash has a new hay bailed fenced area all its own, Red seems completely smitten and so do several of the other Utopians who stop by to play with her. A chicken stole the umbilical cord from the birth and ate it. I didn't have to tell you that, but I saw it, so you have to read it. The Vote before the Vote Many of you know who America voted for, Bri, and most of you know that Bella and Red where put up by the group for replacement. Let's have a quick rundown of who voted for who and why. It was Bella with 5 votes, a tie with 4 votes each for Bri and Red, and 2 votes for Aaron. Once the three nominees are decided, they will have a second vote with just the pioneers that are NOT nominated and decide who should be recycled. Votes for Bella Taylor - I think she has just given up Chris - She just never completes anything she starts Bri - Because Utopia is about unity, love and peace and Bella is none of those things. Kristen - No info Aaron - His best day was when Dave left and he thinks Bella forces her beliefs onto other people. Votes for Bri Josh - Because she has done the least Bella - Because she is lazy Ernesto- Strictly for business reasons Amanda - No info Votes for Red Rob - He gets too angry and it hurts the group Hex - He doesn't want to be part of the group Dedeker - He doesn't want to be part of the group Mike - Too rebellious Votes for Aaron Nikki - He doesn't make healthy food Red - We need a cook, not a chef, a cook would be up before the others for breakfast and keep the kitchen open during the day When it turns out to be a tie between him and Bri, Red nominates himself because he says "I know she doesn't want to go home." The group allows this and their two nominees are Bella and Red. Rob opens the envelope with Americas vote and several of them are very shocked to find that we have nominated Bri anyway. Side Show Freaks & House Keeping They did manage to sell a date with one of the Utopians, Josh went on a double date with two men who they affectionately called "plaid" and "stripes". Bella blamed some of the plants dying on the fact that Rob didn't help out with the watering. He tells her they bought her a hose for that and a sprinkler and the plants still died. Bella's new skill you say?? Oh yea, she is a now a painter. My guess is landscapes. Josh's government was ... "whatever, I don't care... but I am building a workshop which I am calling the love shack and I bought us some thick black plastic for a water slide". Hex is still worried that Utopia is no different than the outside world and it should just be called little America. The Bee Keeper, Jake, that Nikki liked is polyamorus and has much more in common with Dedeker, what will Mike think? Next Time We will find out who is going out the door and meet the two new replacements which the Utopia's will then vote who to keep. Will Bri and Bella change their attitude now that they know they can be "recycled" at the end of the month? The show looks to be scaling down to just one night a week on Fridays, would you like to see some spoilers here about what's going happening on the live feeds? Leave us a comment and let us know!!
Utopia Friday, September 26th, 2014 This Time Our Utopia is officially a game ladies and gents! We are called upon to vote for the least productive member to be put up against two more the pioneers will vote for. I know who I am voting for, do you? We have a 15th member of Utopia (again), Ernesto, but how long will that last? How will the vibe change in Utopia when three people are up for renewal? replacement? replenishment?? ... whatever. Ernesto Our newest addition to Utopia was not voted on, but sent in to replace Pastor Jon. He is a 39 year old licensed contractor. Bella has designs on him right away. Aaron clues in Ernie on the type-A personalities in the group and who is trouble, he conveniently leaves out his double dealing ways, but could probably get him anything he wants on the black market grocery list. Bella takes some time to get to know Ernesto, she finds out he was married for 17 years and his wife unexpectedly passed away 4 years ago. Bella is gracious and not overtly needy as she welcomes him to the group. Nikki spends some time with Ernesto in the pasture (where Kristen is usually stirring the pot), and, unless I miss my guess here, Ernesto is making eyes at Nikki, not sure if she feels the same. What Fresh Hell Government Is This? Apparently, nothing interesting happened during the men's turn at governing. No hard decisions were made, and the money remained intact. So we are on to the next. This is Amanda's turn, she originally said she wanted a democracy with elected representatives, mirroring our current form of government. She has tweaked that just a bit, she has chosen herself, Rob and Dedeker as a representative sample of the group and if you have any problems you will take them to one of these three people. There will also be Titles and Responsibilities in this new regime. Amanda asks for everyone interested in a job to have a speech ready and make it in front of the group, there will be a vote and the title bestowed upon you. Red isn't running for any office in case you hadn't guessed. First we have the Barn. Bri is currently head of barn operations, she didn't wake up (again) like she promised to in the last episode, but no one else stands up for it(including Bri) even though Nikki prompts Red to throw his hat in the ring. Bri is confirmed the Director of Barn Operations. Hex says she never wants to hear another word about it, ever, ever, ever. Second is Construction. Josh is the current head of construction for the group, having set up their plumbing, electrical, and indoor kitchen. He says "I am currently heading up that department and would like to remain the head", Hex seconds his motion, no one else asks for the position and Josh is confirmed as Director of Construction. Third we have the Garden. We all know that is Bella's domain and her pride and joy in life. She has prayed over her garden naked, set up chickens to till the soil, and worked out intricate keyhole patterns. Hex however has had enough of Bella's management style. She says in her speech "she would not tell everyone what to do," she would "find out which plants aren't sprouting, and which are". Just as she says the last Bella excuses herself from the group and says she is done with this meeting and good luck to everyone. So we have our new Directors: Bri, Josh and Hex. We have our new representatives: Amanda, Dedeker, and Rob. Seems like an awful lot of work for about 4 days of governing. The Rice and Beans Revolution Somebody in Utopia is unhappy. Someone wants to succeed. I'll give you three guesses who, and the first two don't count. Red, of course, is at it again. This time he approaches everyone in Utopia, including Ernesto, to join him in open rebellion. I am not sure what government Red doesn't like since it changes every two minutes, but... he doesn't like it. Red, Amanda, Rob, and Mike have a private meeting about his terms for secession. He will get his 1/15th of the money once again, buy his own food (which seems to be his major complaint) and decide what he does with his time. They also come to decision in case his current secession attempt is a failure like his first one. He will not be allowed back in the group. Period. There will be no vote, no one can help him if he is in need. He says "that's fine, I got suckered back in the last time", Rob says "no one can sucker you Red, c'mon!". So I guess we won't see Red around the dinner table anytime soon, I am not sure where he will sleeping since the barn uses electricity, and water/sewage and the Utopians ARE required to pay for all utilities they use. Better hire an accountant. The Vote The Utopians are given very little time for this upcoming vote. They have to chose two of their own for "recycling" (lol). We the people will come up with the third. We only have until noon tomorrow, that's about 14 hours and you only get one vote so make it count. I was trying to keep up with who wanted who out and Aarons name came up quite a bit. It must be strange to just the TV viewing public why that is, he gets almost no camera time and seems to quietly go about his duties, but... there is a very scheming, double dealing, conniving dark side to our chef. I notice his job was not up for grabs during the Directors vote. Kristen doesn't have clean hands either and the Utopians as well as the visitors know all about it. Other than that, it seems to be either Bella or Red, or both that will get the first nominations. Rob suggested Red was like a chicken that caused problems with all the other chickens and asked Dedeker what they would do with a chicken like that? She said "so you are suggesting we eat Red?" Taylor had a spat with Bella and called her the rudest person there. We will have a result on Tuesday, I suspect the online feeds will have it way before we watch the televised episode if you want to take a sneak peak. Side Show Freaks & House Keeping The Utopians opened up over the weekend for the same type of services and entertainment as last weekend and brought in about the same amount of money, $1,400. Kristen and Hex are trying to work out a "date" with the Utopian males and sell it online. None of these business models seem to deviate from the side show variety and once the newness wears off I worry our pioneers will nothing left to fall back on. One positive money making opportunity arrived in the form of a very cute bee keeper. Nikki is VERY interested, (in the bee keeper, not the bees) and deal was struck immediately for him to split the honey and wax 50/50 if they allowed him to use some of the land. Mike tells Dedeker he has never been this happy in his whole life. I'm not sure Dedeker bought that, and neither do I. Bella decides to sleep next to the chicken coup, but Hex finally convinces her that coyotes will eat her so she comes back to the barn. Hex and Taylor finally consummate their relationship near a wood pile. It didn't sound very passionate, more getting down to business I would say. Next Time Someone will be leaving on Tuesday, and someone else will be coming in to replace them, can Utopia stand all the comings and goings in their new society? I didn't see anything online about Bella leaving voluntarily, but she seemed to packing her bags at the end of this episode, do you think she is just walking out? Who do you want to see go home and who do you just want up for nomination so they can eat a nice steaming slice of humble pie? Tune in on Tue, September 30th for some of these answers.
