I was just gratified that she let crusty old dudes cruise around with her. Gives the rest of us hope.

She made no secret that there were male companions with her at various points. The nature of those relationships is irrelevant to the plot line, and also NOYFB.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

I've watched all of the episodes, and I'm not really bothered at all by the new "revelation" that she was back in Europe when some of the installments were posted. It would have been nice to know, but I don't feel duped. It's not like she was never in the San Blas actually living large.

But like any "reality" show, some of the shots were undoubtedly staged for better effect. Given the ubiquity of this kind of entertainment these days (and I use the word "entertainment" ironically here), I doubt anyone really felt they were watching anything other than an edited, managed view of Nike's world.

Short of a massive fraud like Nike really had a team of workers and crew there to help her (is that what you're thinking Minne?), I don't see the big deal here.

Seems to me that she jumped into a cruising fantasy and provided us with a video diary. I really don't much care how true to life it is; I was entertained.

Man, I hope that's not the case. One of the things I've admired about Nike the most is her ingenuity and ability to do a great job on anything she tackles. It would suck if that's faked.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

I looked at the comments. It's ridiculous that she got called out on something like that.

At the same time, she shouldn't have responded with a video like that. It was excruciating to watch. Sometime you just have to let haters hate. Trust me, I know.

I follow her videos and look forward to them. Yea there must have been some petty bitching about that. For what reason I have no idea. Love her videos and glad she does them for land locked wannabes like me to watch and enjoy.
