Re: Who is Karl?

I've watched every episode. It's very entertaining and she's pretty cool to be doing what she is doing.

That said, I don't believe for a second that there isn't some degree of professional reality show manipulation going on. She has some heavy duty sponsors and is a marketing professional herself.

It makes no sense that her sponsors would blindly fund a venture into that aluminum boat, which to believe the ******, she had no idea was in that bad condition.

Re: Who is Karl?

I have been following Nike for just about a year on YouTube. You cannot help but cheer for this lady seeing what she has overcome with "Karl". Things that would have crushed many, she battles through. I know I am not the only one who looks forward to every new Ep.
And if it's been reality show "manipulated" as some might suggest, so what, it has still been an entertaining journey for the viewer.

Re: Who is Karl?

Watched #43 a couple of days ago. She is one STRONG girl!

Seeing her tackle the problems of upgrading and maintaining that boat is amazing. Not sure I would have tackled a couple of the tasks she did!

I see her and Jeanne Socrates (Home) who we met a few times in Mexico as one heck of an example for us ALL!!!
