Another Weekly Review of Licking The Glass House

Another weekly review of The Glass House is here.  Oh joy.  Oh joy. 

Again this week, I shall switch between Lizard Lick Towing and The Glass House.  Personally, I think The Glass House should be moved to Lizard Lick, North Carolina.  Ron is looking to take his crew to the beach the next day.  However, today is a work day with a nighttime repo that is still on schedule. 

The Glass House is 5 minutes late again this week.  Why does The Bachelorette run 5 minutes over?  Last week, Robin and Erica went to limbo.  Robin was team captain of the losing team last week.  The Glass House has divided.  We learn that Andrea is against gay marriage which upsets Jeffery.  Joy has no respect for Kevin, and name calling is taking place much lick what happens on Lizard Lick Towing when it comes to repossessing a vehicle from those delinquent on their payments.

There’s a fire burning at The Lick much like what’s going on in The Glass House.  The difference being that the fire in The Glass House is metaphoric.  Somebody from whom Ron and Bobby are trying to repossess a truck gets angry and starts shooting and setting fires.  Also, it turns out Johnny didn’t sell the candy that was to help raise funds for the Church camp, yet he had brought money from what was thought to be from the sale of the candy.  Where did Johnny get the money from?  Can’t trust that guy.  Some angry people show up at Lizard Lick Towing.  It gets so bad the cops show up for this fiasco.  After the cops get those angry assholes away the Lizard Lick crew head for the beach, but not before Juicy feels the need to shop for the proper beach attire. 

Commercials are now on both channels.  Which show is more interesting?  It’s up for debate.

Anyway, we are back to The Glass House.  I cannot remember many of the players’ names.  Joy and the older guy argue about how she is playing the game, specifically her supposedly playing Gene.  Ah, the older guy’s name is Mike.  The argument results in him and Joy agreeing to disagree.  Now comes the Viewers’ choice of who gets to share beds.  Will a bromance come out of this?  Who will come back from limbo and who will leave the game for good?  The house is divided, and one group wants Robin back. 

At the beach the Lizard Lick crew, well Bobby, finds a dune buggy that’s been on their repo list.  Even with a day at the beach they still do work.  They plan to repossess the dune buggy.  They do this by having Bobby test drive it while Juicy becomes the distraction. 

At The Glass House, Robin is leaving forever, and Erica returns to the games.  Erica gets her welcome, but it doesn’t last long as the drama continues.

The Lizard Lick crew got the dune buggy while enjoying a day at the beach.  Crazy Dave lost his swim trunks and the beach patrol shows up.  This ends this episode of Lizard Lick Towing, and another episodes starts.

At The Glass House, it’s time to find out who will be the team captains for the next challenge.  It’s…Holly and Ashley; one of whom will go to limbo.

I asked which show is more interesting.  Personally, I like watching a show dealing with repossessions.  There’s more action going on in addition to the drama.  Bobby gets lost going through the woods trying to scout the vehicle to be repossessed and gets caught.  This repo is from some moonshiners.  I guess it’s coming from when making this distilled whiskey was and is still illegal, but these moonshiners act like anti-government sovereign citizens who may want to make their own nation separate from the of the United States so they can make their moonshine according to their own laws.

So how about some moonshine in The Glass House?  Two people from the same side of the house are the team captains.  The strategy here is that one captain will pick all players from the other side to guarantee someone from the other side goes to limbo.  Stephanie is made the sacrificial lamb.  Team Ashley is up first.  The challenge is balancing a ball on a disk and bring it to the other side and make the ball drop in a cylinder.  The challenge is complete when 3 balls are in the cylinder, so the object is to get this done as quickly as possible. 

At The Lick, Ron and Bobby are going to repo a livestock trailer.  A fight breaks out.  No surprise there. 

Team Holly is now up.  They get off to a rough start but soon get the hang of it as they get their 3 balls in. 

Ron and Bobby got the trailer with Mortimer the bull inside.  Bobby likes taking care of the bull until the licked cowboys come to pick up the bull.

At The Glass House, Ashley’s team lost so she will go to limbo.  Will Kevin be sent to limbo with her?  The votes are cast.  Stephanie and Kevin get 4 votes each before we go to commercial.

To show Bobby appreciation, a barbeque is prepared.  Bobby’s ex-fiancĂ©e Mickey shows up, which creates a somber mood at The Lick.  Amy does not like Mickey in case you didn’t know because of what Mickey did to Bobby, yet Bobby is still in love with her.  Ron finds Mickey on Amy’s computer and tells her to leave.  How will this drama unfold?

At The Glass House, it appears Kevin is the one sent to limbo with Ashley. 

So there you have another episode of The Lizard Lick Glass House.  Stay tuned next week for more drama and intense action.

The Glass House Episode 3 Review: The Lizard Lick Glass House in the Big Easy

I missed last week’s episode of The Glass House due to being on vacay and having too much fun to take time to watch.  I was also switching between last night’s episode and Lizard Lick Towing.  Of course, The Bachelorette ran over.   

Since the episode of Lizard Lick seemed interesting, I had to switch between the two shows.  Which one is more interesting?

So The Glass House finally comes on 5 minutes after 9 Central Time.  Like I said, I didn’t get to watch last week’s episode due to being on vacay, but we do know that the viewers voted out Alex last week, and Jacob quit after being sent to Limbo.  I do find it ironic that the viewers voted out Alex after they wanted him to be so obnoxious and cause drama in the house.  Could the viewers have wanted him to act that way so they could vote him out?  Kind of like being set up to fail.  Anyway, at the start of this episode, Apollo and Holly are in Limbo.

This is when I decided to go to Lizard Lick.  On Lizard Lick Towing, Bobby and Ron are trying to repo a vehicle from a group of Civil War Re-enactors.  I felt I needed to watch this episode to see what would happen after Johnny (Ron’s cousin) tried to put the moves on Amy (Ron’s wife in case you didn’t already know).  What happened was Ron wanted Amy to take Johnny to lunch because of some supposed good deed of selling candy for a kid’s church group.  I had to see what would go down so I went back and forth between The Glass House and Lizard Lick.

Now back to The Glass House.  Now it’s the Robin Show.  Robin and Erica had a confrontation about Robin stealing someone’s thunder when Stephanie was talking about her marriage.  It is not easy to keep up with a show such as The Glass House.  The other contestants were wondering if they stood a chance against Stephanie.  Due to her sob story, the others seem to think they would not stand a chance against her.  With that, who will return to the Glass House? Apollo or Holly?  We find out after commercial.

Back from commercial.  Apollo is out and Holly is back in thanks to the viewer’s votes.  Also thanks to the viewer’s votes, Gene and Mike get to share the Friend’s Room.  It appears the flirt Joy likes to flirt with both guys and girls.  Next, it’s down to picking the captains for the next challenge.  The two captains are Ashley and Robin.  Again the losing team’s captain and another player on the losing team get sent to Limbo.  The contestants with the least amount of votes become the team captains.

So now I go back to Lizard Lick.  Amy is very angry at Johnny, and who could blame her?  Someone whose vehicle got repossessed threw Ron’s phone into the lake.  It turns out Johnny the ever-so con man thought he could take advantage of Ron and put the moves on Amy.  So of course Johnny and Ron got into it and told Johnny to leave.  Amy and Bobby never trusted Johnny in the first place.  You just can’t trust someone who’s been in prison.  Sure he claimed to have changed for the better, but anyone can claim that.  Of course Ron felt obligated to trust a family member, and that’s why he did, but he soon did see the writing on the wall.

So ends this half hour episode of Lizard Lick Towing.

Now another episode of Lizard Lick.  Ron and Bobby were given a too good to be true job in the Big Easy.  Of course Amy was very skeptical about this, so she decides to go down to New Orleans.

Now back to The Glass House.  As team captain, Robin wanted to pick a team that would win.  Of course I’d like to win the challenge so I as team captain don’t go to Limbo.  The challenge was to bob for gross stuff.   The object of this challenge was to guess the task the viewers wanted the contestants to perform and the contestant had to perform the task.  If they guessed the wrong task they would get a penalty.  Ashley’s team won so Robin and one of her teammates will be going to Limbo.

Now in New Orleans, the Lizard Lick team had to repossess a truck and had to unattach a float.  Amy then made it down to New Orleans.  She does not like how Dwight, the guy who gave them the job and paid half upfront, runs his business.  Ron and Bobby then had to repossess a hearse with a coffin in it.  It seems the Big Easy is not so easy for the Repo Business.

Guests from The Bachelor visit The Glass House to reveal the viewer’s answers to the contestant’s questions.   One of the answers state that the viewers do not want Holly to stay.

Lizard Lick.  Bobby is running from the people from whom the hearse was repossessed.  The Lizard Lick team allowed them to take the casket out of the hearse which turned out to be a huge mistake.

It turns out there is something shady about Dwight.  The Lizard Lick team goes to collect their fee from him, but Dwight told them they had to have the casket.  Because the casket was not with the hearse this job was considered incomplete.  Therefore an argument ensues and both sides are angry.  A fight breaks out and Dwight throws them out of his office, and so back they go to Lizard Lick.  It’s possible that Dwight was in cahoots with the people who had the hearse repossessed from them.  They were the ones who convinced the Lizard Lick Team that the casket could be kept by the ones who got licked.  I think Dwight got them to do that so he would not have to pay the Lizard Lick team for the job.  Dwight is a con artist.

So now I go back to The Glass House, but it is too late so I didn’t get to see who went to Limbo with Robin as the local news was on by the time I switched back to ABC.  Then again, a show like Lizard Lick Towing is more exciting than a show like The Glass House.

The only connection with the Lizard Lick Glass House in the Big Easy is that Ashley is from the city where the Lizard Lick team got licked.
