8:00 PM Viva La Revolucion!
The pioneers learn they can replace the town-council members if they choose to do so, and the current four leaders try to get reelected.

(I'll rewatch the episode Thursday when it comes on-line.)

I felt bad for Mike too. He tries. He makes mistakes, but he tries.
I really didn't care for Olivia this episode. What's her problem? Anjay isn't that bad and she's just always on his back. Then she runs against him, but doesn't really have anything to go on. She was so smug. I am glad she lost. Then when Anjay tried to give her some credit, she just trashes him. She made a comment to him during the food fight about maturity, but she needs to look in the mirror.

Who notes that the Town Council may have inadvertently done Zach a disservice by not giving him a Gold Star this week, since now as a Council Member, he will not be eligible to be awarded a Gold Star unless and until there is a new election...

I agree. I was watching thinking what a hypocrite she was. She came off really bad during the election, and that probably cost her votes. The comment she made afterwards was just sour grapes.
Taylor lost because of the way she leads, not because of the campaign.

She is 12, not perfect, and part of a storyline that has not yet played itself out. All editing is 100% manipulation that has agenda whether it be fictional TV or reality TV. In the case of Kid Nation the target audience is families with pre-teens (Not hardcore reality TV fans); it is about learning important life lessons that children can understand. In this case of Oliva and Anjay: Sometimes two people from different backgrounds don't get along, but over time they find common ground and learn to appreciate each other. Their personal conflict would not be shown on national TV otherwise. You got to look that the bigger picture.

I'm glad Greg finally got the star. He deserved it. Zach will have a chance if and when he leaves the council and he seems like the type of kid who will continue working hard even if he's voted out so I'm not worried about him. Taylor and Mike were both gracious under the circumstances. I felt a bit sorry for Mike, I think red just decided they wanted a new face in charge. While I am glad that Taylor was voted off, I also hope that she took notice of the fact that none of the kids clapped when her vote was read and there was loud cheering when Zach's were. I know some people think some of us, myself included, are too hard on the kids on this show, but we are nothing compared to other kids. The expression, "Kids can be cruel" is a fact. Maybe that will be a little wake up for her.
I know I'm hard on her. I don't hate her, but I don't like her either. Not as she is now. I hope that as she grows she will learn more respect for others and a better work ethic. There is hope for her.

Love him or hate him, Greg did deserve that gold star. Maybe not for anything specific this week, but for consistent effort, surely.

I was really shocked when I saw a reward was toothbrushes and such. I never would have thought they couldn't bring toothbrushes! I get is for shows like Survivor, but I thought since there are kids in this show, they wouldn't compromise their health in that way.
I was also annoyed with Olivia, but I'm quite sure that is what the producers wanted. I'm not really all that enamored of Anjay either. I think Laurel was right -- most of the natural leaders are on the green team. It sure seems like there is a different level of maturity in that group.
I thought Mike and even Taylor handled their defeats graciously. It will be interesting to see how Taylor does sitting on those low benches.

Really surprise that Mike only got one vote (wonder who that was)...Haven't seen much of what's his name, but I hope he does a good job...
Michael could have won, if he decided to run...I think Laurel got lucky with that, but she hasn't really done a bad job herself....
Glad Taylor is out of the council...let's hope Zach can motivate the Yellow Team to actually follow his advice and work to benefit the town...
**Michael needs a Gold Star**
**Can someone in the council get a Gold Star?...if not, I think Zach might have cost himself that by winning the election**

Who expects that's why he took the results so hard - his entire district, those he thought were his friends, turned against him...
