This week, we watched one of the most passionate, emotional, entertaining, vocal (and dare I say, controversial) contestants The Big Break has ever seen ‘calmly’ exit the series. Okay, maybe not all that calmly – maybe the Happy Gilmore swack at the ball on the green was a tiny bit over the top, but that was pretty tame for Blake, don’t you think? LOL! (I hope you went back and fixed that mark on the green, Blake! ;))
All kidding aside, I am sorry to see Blake leave the show. I know a lot of you out there aren’t big fans of his temper, but you’ve got to admit, this man wears his heart on his sleeve. And from what the other Big Breakers tell me, he has a pretty big heart.
It was sadly ironic that Blake was eliminated from Big Break Disney after his best performance yet on this series. But in golf, as in life, things aren’t always what they “should be”. Tonight, we saw Blake play some really good golf, but the fickle flatstick laughed in his face and said, “Not this time!” We’ve all been there. But talk about bad timing!
I was fortunate to talk to Blake right after the show tonight to find out how he felt about his last day on Big Break Disney and Tony’s “call out” of Andrew…
Thanks Blake for agreeing to continue our weekly interviews. It will be fun to hear what you think about the last 4 shows from the sidelines and, of course, the continuing drama between Andrew and the Finau brothers. 😉
Mike also was back this week to talk about the visit from his brother, Pat, to last week’s show, and his head-to-head match with Kevin this week. There was much much more to that than we saw. Listen and learn…
Kevin has been flying around to hockey games and golf championships for the past week so we missed last week’s interview. I was anxious to hear about his latest successes on the golf course and also what it was like to ride in that race car. I couldn’t understand why Stephanie drove and Kevin didn’t. Again, these post episode interviews always give a little inside info on what really happened behind the scenes that day…
Vincent joined me for the first time since his elimination. Not only did he provide some interesting analysis of the head-to-head challenges, he shared some of the cool activities he was doing with JR and the other eliminated contestants. Sounds like they had a lot more fun than the guys left on the show!
I guess what they say is true – there are no losers on The Big Break.
