Utopia

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014.

 

Well, Kristen and her pitch that she is "here to make them money" led to the first unanimous decision the pioneers have ever made.  Money wins!!  The pioneers meet with a REAL farmer, Hex has trouble living without sex and the Utopians first money making operation is flop.  But first, news about our injured Pastor Jon.

 

The End of Pastor Jon?

The doctor arrives to show Pastor Jon that he has broken his thumb and needs surgery.  He will have two pin in his thumb (through the skin!!) and will need a clean environment for the next 6 to 8 weeks or risk losing mobility in the digit.  It's an easy decision for the Pastor, but hard for everyone including him to swallow.  Everyone gathers around the fire pit and the Pastor tells them he has seen arguments and fighting in the group and he has the answer.  The kingdom of God is the answer, and all they have to do is put God first and he will take care of them.  Lots of weeping from the gathered pioneers and Rob takes a moment to speak to the Pastor.  He says in the Marine Corps., they have a saying, "People wake up every day and wonder if they will touch someone's life, Marines don't have that problem and neither do you."  He is very choked up and the Pastor is as well.  Red and the Pastor speak with each other at the Pastor's little corner of the barn, he gives Red his personal supplies, and his spot in the barn once he is gone.  The Pastor is reunited with his wife Wendy at the gate, and Red notes, "well, we are down to 13".  Everyone Red has been close to is now gone.  He will have to find a way to get along with the group or he may be making a walk to gate soon himself.  Red comes back to the barn to see that Bella has taken over the sleeping spot for herself and he quickly throws her items out of the corner and tells her this is HIS spot.  Bella says "I refuse to argue with you today" and walks off.

 

Lefty the Farmer

Bri contacts a real farmer in the area named Lefty.  Bri haggles to buy a rooster from him for $15 with the unlikely name of Enrique.  Lefty gives them some general advice about chickens and confirms that Bella's style of gardening will work fine but it is not near large enough.  He tells them by winter they will have no food to eat and will starve.  Kristen and Hex are up early the next morning milking the cow, the see Bella come outside and release the chickens from their coup, including their new rooster.  Bella tells them they are "free", and walks down to the garden.  Hex is very upset that the chickens are eating the cow manure in the barn, she say that Bella can eat all the manure eggs, she can have them all.  Some quick research tells me the chickens are fine eating the manure from cows (I had no idea) they pick the seeds and bits of edible food from the manure and leave the rest.  After Bella has been yelled at by Hex, and had her things tossed all over the barn by Red for invading his territory, she decides to take the next day in the garden 100% Eve style.  As in completely naked and with no fig leaf.  The other pioneers make disparaging comments and liken her to the show 'Naked and Afraid' only she is naked and they are afraid.

 

 

Money, Money, Money

Amanda calls a business meeting and the group discuss ways to make money yet again.  Camping, Hillbilly survival classes, jewelry, and yoga classes are some of the ideas they come up with.  Bella suggests the rocks she has put in the garden can be sold for "pet" memorials.  Josh and Aaron smirk at this and Kristen quickly steps in the remind them that the Utopia "Brand" is important and should not be diluted by too many things at once.  Mike, the lawyer is reaffirmed as the treasurer, and reminds them they are down to $3,133.03.  To "fix" the stove for a gas line and Bella's water filter to get rid of the nasty fluoride will set them back another $600. 

 

 

Party Time

Mike and Josh decide to lighten the mood and put on a "Drag-style, burlesque" show for the other pioneers.  Josh (Meeshell Bobcat) ends up looking like something from the movie 'South Pacific' with strings tied to his arms and an orange bra that passes fairly well for two coconuts tied together.  Mike (Blanca Chocolate Late) is wearing a black leather corset and Rob provides the music.  A good time seems to be had by all, even Red who says he is now blind but had a few laughs as well.

 

 

Let's All Welcome... Ben

The day of the Yoga classes has arrived.  All our pioneers are nervous.  They have reminded each other to put on deorderant and remember to smile.  Everyone speculates on how many, or how few people might arrive.  The price has dropped to $40 per person from $50, and now includes a tour of Utopia itself.  When the large brass ship bell at the front gate finally rings... Ben greets them.  Just Ben.  Alone.  He and his roommates became obsessed with the feeds and he decided to come and meet them and do a little Yoga.  The pioneers welcome him and begin the yoga class, Nikki leads, Hex, Amanda, Josh, Bella and Ben.  Rob is yelling in the barn that "this is not a joke, they need food and money", the yoga group can hear every word.  Hex excuses herself from continuing because her butt hurts too much.  Josh waits for a meditation portion and crawls away while the remaining group have their eyes closed.  Ben is escorted out and the pioneers while sarcastic about the turn out are grateful for the money as Amanda puts it "today was a fabulous day, because we didn't lose money".

 

 

Barn Baby

Nikki the holistic doctor talks to Amanda about her pregnancy, Amanda says it has been great so far.  Josh joins them and talks about the lake of sex in Utopia.  Nikki and Amanda ask if he wants to have sex with Nikki, he says "yea, she is the only one left he can turn to", they have a good laugh and Nikki tells him whe will "have to let him know".  Hex and Kristen together in the hammock pray for the new pioneer arriving today to be a "boy".  Kristen prays hard for Hex because she is in a real drought here.  Hex says she is in the desert. 

 

 

Taylor, Nuf Said...

Taylor arrives, and he looks like the front cover of Harlequin romance novel.  Hex immediately jumps up to help him carry in his crate.  All the girls are pretty impressed and very giggle-y about Taylor.  He tells them he has worked in high end landscaping lately, building water features, fire pits, and outdoor kitchens.  Learn more about Taylor here.  Josh calls out Hex for putting on make-up and brushing her hair, she doesn't disagree.  Taylor has brought a HUGE slab of Omaha, NE beef with him and has now won over the guys as much as the girls.  Looks like he will fit in just fine.  The group gets together to play a game of "stick baseball" to welcome Taylor to Utopia. 

 

 

Next Time

Looks like Taylor is off to a good start.  Will Hex and Bella become puppy dogs chasing after Taylor and Josh respectively?  Amanda mentioned she did not want to have her baby in barn, so will she be leaving Utopia to have the baby?  Will Enrique the rooster rise to the occasion and do his job?  Tune in Friday September 19th for some of these answers.  Feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think of Utopia.  Have you checked in on the live free feeds yet?

First off let me say I LOVE the new format. It's going to make it easier for me to comment on the episode. KUDOS

 

The End of Pastor Jon?

So I wonder if he will come back? I mean he wasn't banished or thrown out of Utopia, he just needed surgery so I wonder if when he is better if they will let him come back in. I hope so. For me he was interesting and very like-able.

 

Lefty the Farmer

I liked how he gave them (well Bella) feedback. He was nice and very helpful.

 

Money, Money, Money

About time. I was wondering when they was going to figure out money as nothing is free and in order to get what they want, they have to do something to make money.

 

Barn Baby

Did she answer where she wanted to have the baby? I don't remember if she did or not but I would assume in the main area where they have the meeting. I doubt she'll leave to have it (unless it's an emergency).

 

Party Time

Can we say, interesting?! LOL! I mean I wasn't expecting that one bit BUT I have to say i'm glad they did it. It made it interesting and fun. You know?! 

 

Let's All Welcome... Ben

It was cool seeing someone from the outside come in. It looked like he had fun and enjoyed himself. I mean $40 is $40 and they should be happy with that. I have to say that Josh got cool points from me by the way he stood up and spoke his positive mind. I mean it's just a start, why be negative and not give it a shot. Plus they all agree'ed Yoga to be begin with so why not be happy that they actually got someone then NOT. 

 

Taylor, Nuf Said...

All I'm going to say is, he's a great addition to the group.
