I Want to Work for Diddy: Jesus, Martin, Poprah

Rob is eliminated, and we saw that coming a mile away. He spent four years in the Army but is awful at ground navigation, which was a huge part of last night's challenge. His team was lost in the woods for hours, and when they finally reached one of the points on their path to the finish line, they were detoured when Rob incorrectly answered the multiple choice question. It would have been a miracle for him not to be eliminated.

Of course, it didn't help him that Poprah was the person he went head-to-head with in the elimination. That put him at a grave disadvantage, since she's on the same level as Jesus and Martin Luther King, Jr.


I know. It's ridiculous, but she did actually compare herself to Jesus and MLK. What's the similarity? All three are "great leaders" in her mind. Also, she felt her team had betrayed her. I disagree. To betray someone there needs to be some loyalty established in the first place. Poprah knows her teammates can't stand her. She shouldn't have been surprised they nominated her for elimination. I'm sure it's not the last time.

Did you watch? What do you think? Should Poprah have been eliminated? What was wrong with Rob? Should he have kept his military background a secret and let someone else take the lead? Will the Uptown Team continue their losing streak?
