They are endearing, especially Booper. I hope they team up from the cousins from Mississippi.

I like them too.

Mark reminded me of my nephew who always gets carsick. My nephew actually barfed all over my new car yrs ago. All I could do was smile and say it was okay...he was only 6 or 7. LOL memories.

I thought it was Booper who threw up? He made sure to stick half his body out of the window so as to not get the side of the car.

Am I getting their names confused?

I thought Bopper was the Patrick Swayze look-alike, but maybe I'm confused. (Certainly wouldn't be the first time! Razz)

Yeah, Bopper is the white guy. lol I felt really bad for Mark watching that because I get pretty bad motion sickness (when I was a kid the doctors told my parents I'd grow out of it but it's gotten way worse).

I do love this team though. Hopefully if they don't win they at last get some prizes or something and Bopper can bring attention to his daughter's situation.

Oh I thought Booper was the black guy. My mistake. I thought the first name listed on these pages belonged to the person on the left.

What is Booper's daughter's situation? Yeah, I hope if they don't win the $1,000,000, they win some cash or good prizes.

The only reason I remember that is because I read this article and I know he's the one with the sick daughter. Basically, she is dealing with a lot of serious health problems because of the coal production near their home (which isn't uncommon in the Appalachians these days)

He talks about it here:

I'd guess that the plant was probably built after the houses? They obviously don't have a lot of money from what was shown in the premiere and it happens a lot in low incomes areas (esp. in the Appalachians).

Probably the owners of the coal plant. They would build crappy houses for the peons to work in, long before there were regulations and health requirements.
Lots of poor folks don't have an option to move.

After Episode 2 and seeing how well Mark & Booper work together, I'm rooting for them for the long haul. I'll be sad if they don't at least make it to final 3.

I liked them more in episode 2 than I did in eppy 1. I guess I had to get used to their personalities and style of speech.

I hope to heck that cute video isn't a sweet good-bye video made just for Sunday night.
I would LOVE to see Mark and Bopper in the final three with Rachel and Brendan and Nary and Jamie!...but most of these reality shows never end the way I want them to. DAMN!

Well, I had last year...Rachel winning BB and Boston Rob winning Survivor...so I can't whine too much!! lol!

I'm hoping it isn't a good-bye video too Maureen! Sad

These two are the highlight of every episode for me. I've never seen two people enjoy competing in a show as much as Mark and Bopper. They've enjoyed every moment and appreciated the experience like nobody else I've ever seen. It's so refreshing! They're like two little children seeing the world for the first time. I love their friendship. I look forward to watching them each week and don't want them gone!

When I described it as a "best of.." that was me describing it...not CBS. BUT, it possibly being a goodbye video did cross my mind, so I hope it isn't. I would be so disappointed if it was. I just thought it was a weird video to release.

catty, the timing of the video isn't a coincidence imo, unfortunately. In fact, I don't believe in coincidences. This was released for a reason and only CBS knows what that reason is. I just hope it's not what we think it is.

Rachel crashed the interview and dropped a line of "if Mark and Bopper were on another show she would watch" Maybe it's a hint that they will be on another show...maybe. Wishful thinking on my part probably LOL

I love M/B just as much as you all. If they get a new show I'll support it. They are typical Kentucky good ole boys. Lots of people there juist like them. I lived most of my life in Indiana and I know all about kentuckians. Good people, most of them. Still Tar is a game and whoever wins deserves the money. I wish M/B nothing but the best and beleive me they both know that...Its a matter of presenting. They got most of people's hearts but that doesn't mean they deserve the money any more than anyone else...The winner of the last leg deserves the money imo no matter who that might be...but jmo

If this show leads them to something where they are able to talk about Bopper's daughter, then good for them.

I wasn't aware of the affects of coal dust until I read Bopper's story.
