I stumbled upon this random message board, where I guess Olivia/Mallory's mom is a member of and she gives a lot of information on the behind the scenes part of the show.

It's here. Her username is 'tina_in_indy'
Pretty interesting to read. I thought her comments about Greg were pretty surprising.

Son of a rat's ass....now I wanna know what he did that we couldn't even see. Maybe he beat someone up. Hence all the scabs. Hmmm....

Thanks for this, that was a really good read.

So glad to hear that Anjay and Olivia are friends!

And wish we knew some of the things Greg did...

Yeah, I'd love to know the dirty details on Greg, too, but I'm not really surprised by her comments about him. His bipolar moments were so abundant.

I guess Alex really did want to keep that star as long as possible.

Yes, he had that whole mini-speech about how the price of gold is appreciating, so I interpreted that as he would keep the gold whereas the other kids would take the cash.

Even if the value of gold is increasing, where exactly do you sell stuff like that? Do you take it to a jeweler or something?

Hell if I know.

I am guessing Greg doesn't have the best boundaries and had to be redirected around how to act around younger kids. I thought it was a little creepy to see him carrying around some of the girls who were, um, 10 or 11? Not quite appropriate, though the intent seemed to be sweet. And yeah, he had some anger issues and was pretty impulsive.

I'm left feeling pretty ambivalent about him. It's not clear to me whether he really GOT what kids (and probably adults, off camera) were saying to him, and grew as a person, or whether he just learned the rules better, but doesn't really empathize with how others felt, which would make him a little sociopathic.

They got Wii Systems for Christmas from CBS? Seriously? Damn.

Thanks for the link. I love stuff like that.

There's one site that I went to every week for Kid Nation recaps and at the end of every recap, you can leave a comment. Several of the kids' parents made appearances... Laurel's Mom, Michael's Dad, and Jared's Dad. They gave updates on the kids, which were really nice to read. Jared's was the best by far, though.

Here's the link. Laurel's Mom is "Justamom", Michael's Dad is "wthot", and Jared's Dad is "zebradingo".
