Up to now on Buckwild, weâ€™ve been ready to write off most of the characters as boring, possibly inbred simpletons with lives we care very minimally about. But on last nightâ€™s episode, we witnessed some unexpected stuff that further rounds out the flat characters weâ€™ve been watching for like, 4 weeks. So this time around with our recap, weâ€™ve gone in a different direction, and opted for a listicle! Here are the 5 unexpected wins from last nightâ€™s Buckwild, brought to you by someone who was too lazy to change the channel.
Â 1.Â Shain buries his money in the ground: Shain proves further to us that he is indeed, the countriest of country boys by burying his money in the ground. No seriously, he puts his â€śsavingsâ€ť in a mason jar, digs a hole, and piles the Earth back on. In his defense, this seems sort of backwardly effective. Thereâ€™s no way Iâ€™d ever have a chance to spend that money, because Iâ€™d never have the energy to dig it up. So touchĂ©, Shain. Way to blow our minds.
Â 2.Â Cara makes macaroni and cheese omelets: CaraÂ prepares the gang a sumptuous feast of macaroni and cheese omelets! Kind of gross sounding, but also something Iâ€™d definitely try once. I also may have seen these at a local diner, and it reminded me of everything Iâ€™m missing out there in the big wide world while Iâ€™m home watching TV.
Â 3.Â Katie acknowledges Tylerâ€™s stupidity: Up to now, Katie has just filled the role of basic bitch who likes to make every sentence sound like a question. But we saw some unexpected insight from her last night. She dishes to Anna about Tyler â€śLike heâ€™s perfect. Heâ€™s sweet and fun and looks great with his shirt off, but heâ€™s reallllly stupidâ€¦â€ť Good for you, sweetheart! Weâ€™re impressed that you even realized that. Gold star!
Â 4.Â Anna knows how to throw a good party: While at the general store–because they still have those un-ironically in West Virginia– the girls rack their brains for what they should get for a special party theyâ€™re throwing.Â Caraâ€™s like â€śWe have nothing for the party, you guys!â€ť And Annaâ€™s like â€śAll we need are liquor and chips.â€ť Â Pretty good answer.
Â 5.Â Shain actually makes candy: Up to now, I thought his tagline was just a lame pun with absolutely zero connection to anythingâ€”â€śThey call me Gandee Candy because itâ€™s trick or treat all year roundâ€ť(violent pelvic thrust). Uhmm, actually Shain, they really call you Gandee Candy because your family has a candy company called â€śGandee Candy.â€ť You sell coconut truffles at the local artisan market with your parents. And this is where I begin to believe that Shain is a performance artist (a laâ€™ Flavor of Love 2â€™s â€śBuckwildâ€ť characterâ€ť) who has settled in Wolfpen to sell his chocolates in a less competive marketplace. And to test out his character improv. We think youâ€™re up to something Shain, and we like it. You win the show.
Next week is the finale, kids! Pour out some Natty light for our boys and girls. The beauty of back-to-back episodes: the season’s over in 4 weeks.
