Well they are better sailors than I will ever hope to be if they can still keep their minds on maximizing publicity angles and market timing whilst beating into the wind in the Atlantic... and I do that sh*t for a living...
Don't denigrate yourself!
a) sailing isn't that difficult
b) one learns much more, much faster as the owner/skipper. Has Nikki been a skipper, or and owner? Or both? Riley has sailed half the world as both owner and skipper.
c) You're in the industry, then you've seen star-lust surmount all.
d) Ive had 30 years in that industry too.
e) I know Riley and Elayna and I thought Elayna is employable in any/every TV station I know. This rough diamond, down home, rough as guts girl could be the Steve Irwin of any modern network. Everyone is waiting for the next Steve Irwin. She is it. But she has a steely edge to her. She wants and can achieve.
Don't tell me that these 3 factions on this boat don't have the savvy to manipulate the/their media they way they want: 1 has spoken in front of the UN, the other has the highest grossing sailing video in the world. You're dealing with two of the best manipulators in their own fields... put together in a Big Brother floating household for 3 stormy weeks... the 3rd is the Wild Card, a young woman who appears to have experience, but never as an owner or skipper.
Any anyone wonders why we are talking incessantly about it?????????????????????
