First of all I truly love all the feedback from the viewers this season! So thank y'all so much for that!! I'm often asked if its weird to see myself on TV and I always say it's comparable to watching a home video. In fact, the only difference is that sometimes people will come up to me in the grocery store perplexed as to why they know me. Hee hee ... makes me giggle! Episode three ... oy ... where to begin?
There seems to be more focus on Jackie and myself than in the past episodes. There were weeks of bonding that really sealed our relationship in between filming -- so when camera time resumed, we were super comfortable with each other and I think that translates. Watching the dog washing scene makes me shvitz a little. Those dogs hate my guts! And Jackie gets sick pleasure out of watching these viscous spawns from the devil bite me, which (I've counted) is 26 times! You'd think I'd learn my lesson ... but I'm determined to make peace. I've tried to Dog Whisper them on several occasions ... but alas I am no Cesar Millan. So I continue to bleed and cry on a regular basis!
With regards to Jackie and my relationship -- I'm often asked if there was a moment where I thought "what am I getting myself into?" and if the foray into heteroflexibility suddenly seemed scarier than it should be. The answer is no. I never felt fear at any point -- I felt confused as to what these new feelings were and I did a great deal of questioning within myself. But never once did I concern myself with any outside opinions because you never know anyone's agenda. I think it's dangerous to place what is right for you into the hands of others. The parties involved, specifically the other trainers, have every right to their point of view... but I NEVER gave them one second of thought.
