The Whip Snapped

Who Wants To Be A Superhero… Week 5!

Well, I called it… NOT. I picked the Defuser last week and it was Whip-Snap that went home. She just got too emotional one two many times. I should have recognized that, but due to the fact that she hadn’t been called up for possible elimination before I didn’t think it would be her. I like Whip-Snap. Her real life story seemed so powerful and inspirational, a gay African American woman who overcame poverty and all that, I would have liked to have known more. But this is contest, as Stan said, and superhero is supposed to be as positive as possible and all the blubbering just wasn’t cutting it.
But I still think the Defuser came very close to leaving. Whip-Snap did have the fastest time on the rat, snake, and spider hole crawl, but Stan has to take the heroes performance in total and the past performances have been lacking especially due to her breakdowns.

Her interaction with the kids at the restaurant was great though, that big smile showed that she could be positive. If only we saw more of that.

Additionally. Ok, Yes everybody, this season of Who Wants To Be A Superhero is not as good as it could be. There I said it. Are you happy? Maybe the 1st season moved faster, maybe the people were more interesting, or possibly the newness factor of the show really helped sell it the first time around. I would encourage folks who are kinda iffy on the premise to check out the first season, especially for Captain Victory’s antics.

Doctor Dark Still rules though, he’s making the show fun.

Because he committed the big booboo of giving part of his costume away, I’ll pick the Defuser again to be eliminated next week.

I’m seriously starting to think that Hyperstrike is going all the way, although my personal favorite is Hygena for some bizarre reason.

I saw the end of it last night. Just like America's Top Model (which I usually trundled off to the computer rather than watched) they milked the moment of suspense to the point where I fear the cash cow's udder is going to fall off.

I haven't seen the meat of the show, so I can't judge it overall, but those extended endings are the main reason reality TV is not my thing.

That might be why the 1st season was better, while they did milk it there were two characters booted per episode so things move faster.

Great idea for a super hero - "Uber Udder", the ultimate cash cow.

Sorry. Just being a smart ass since I can't see this show.

I watched it too, and I wanted the Diffuser to go home too!

Hygenia's pretty funny, and I did like Whip Snap. I hope she keeps doing "what she do".

Let's hope the next episode isn't so cheesy, and more fun!
