Hera says Victoria “gives as much as she gets,” and what we “don’t see that.”
Jonathan Baker has a defender: fellow The Amazing Race 6 teammate Hera McLeod, who was eliminated this week along with her father, Gus. While Hera tells the AP that she “was shocked to see how they [Victoria and Jonathan] interacted with each other on television,” she says that “That’s not the Jonathan and Victoria I saw most of the time. She gives as much as she gets. You just don’t see that, which is a shame.” So has that which we’ve seen been unreal? Have the editors been manipulating us? Or is someone doing damage control because Jonathan and Victoria actually win, thus forcing all of us Race fans to bury our faces in our hands and rock back and forth like babies and say “no no no no” and wish that that shrieking twit Flo would win eight thousand more times instead of subjecting us to this utterly disappointing and crushing travesty?

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
