Kendra says her “breeding” comment was “taken out of context” by the editors.
Reality TV show editors must really hate all the blame that gets flung at them by idiot reality TV show contestants. The latest example: Amazing Race 6 winner Kendra Bentley. For example, in Senegal, which she called “ghetto Africa,” she said, “This country is wretched and disgusting. And they just keep breeding and breeding in this poverty. I just can’t take it.” And upon arriving in Ethiopia, Kendra complained, “It’s Ethiopia. It’s going to be depressing, and Third World. We just went to a Third World country.” Of course, these sentences were, she tells TV Guide,
“taken out of context. I was actually talking about the government and how they put people in these situations. They don’t give them opportunities for education or birth control. I think everyone should have the same opportunities that we do in America, but there are a lot of corrupt governments in the world and it’s heartbreaking to see the [effects of that]. I was actually voicing my passion and anger toward the government, and it made it sound like I was being insensitive toward the people, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
We stand corrected; the secretary general of the UN will certainly be calling her soon to serve as a special envoy to help fight those oppressive governments.
+ also: Freddy and Kendra plan to give some of their $1 million to charity. Seriously.
