I like it, do you know when it's on again? I thought there was like this new one where their left all alone? Or did they already show that one? I wanna see it
Oh, too bad you missed that one. It was really, really good. It was shown last wednesday. It comes on at 8pm midwestern standard time or 7pm EST on ABC.
They were left totally alone for 3 days. Frank, (he's 16) with the anger issues did the best. He likes
being alone so he loved the experience.
Shawn, the kid with the hair in his eyes who's pre delinquent, did the best as far as how the experience changed his thinking processes. He's already stated that he intends to dump his bad friends & hang out with another type crowd as soon as he gets home.
I felt really sorry for Derek (the one who's 13 yrs. & is ADHD). They showed him the first night rolling around in his sleeping bag & crying out, "mommy, mommy, mommy" Can you imagine the embarassment & hazing he's going to get from his firends & classmates this fall? Poor kid is between a rock & a hard place because he refuses to take his meds for his condition because they affect his growth progress & he's already
small for his age.
I also like the girl with the braces (Lauren?). She seems to be embracing the whole experience as something for her ultimate betterment.
The one I don't like & who I don't think will have any lasting results is Jada, the pathological liar. All she does is whine & cry and write letters to her parents telling them she is dying & that they're torturing her. Then they procede to film her talking to the camera & laughing and smiling all the while, saying how easy
it was to manipulate her parents. No, I don't think you can "cure" a pathological liar. They have too much "fun" getting people to believe them. It's a sickness.
