SPOILER ALERT!!!! DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.
It's down to two: Feedback and Fat Momma.
The first thing they did tonight was put them on a trampoline. Feedback was doing back flips and just having a great time. Fat Momma bounced up and down and managed to (on purpose) bounce from her rear back to her feet again. But I loved her response when she got off the thing: "I did it without losing one donut."
Feedback was just too cute--so enthusiastic about getting to do all these cool stunts, and when they told him they'd get to do it in front of a green screen... I thought he was gonna pee his pants.
Fat Momma: "I need a donut for this one." Funny!! She got on the thing to be able to jump off and "fly" across the green screen, but when she got to thinking about her kids, she knew she couldn't afford to get hurt and she got down. I liked Feedback's response. He said something to the effect that Fat Momma constantly amazed him in the ways she was heroic every day. Awww.
After all the filming with the green screen, Stan had some one-on-one time with Feedback and Fat Momma. He wanted to learn more about them as people, not their characters.
Feedback (aka Matthew) was so sincere in his desire to be looked up to and have people trust him. Feedback considers Stan Lee to be his hero--after his father committed suicide, Matthew found solace and even a sense of direction from Spiderman and, therefore, from Stan.
Fat Momma (aka ??) said her most significant moment was when Stan told her he was proud of her. It meant a lot to her that he noticed. When he asked who her hero is, she said it was her father. He's a strong man, a good man, and she started to cry, saying that he's getting older and won't be around much longer. It made me start thinking about my own dad, who will be 80 in December. Stan told her she was his hero.
Then... it was time to make the announcement. They did it from the University City Walk at Universal Studios. More cheesy special effects and a crowd of people breathlessly awaiting Stan Lee (who never once made a personal appearance--he was always on a TV screen).
And the winner is...
Wait for it...
And he looked so shocked when the announcement was made, especially since it was made this way:
"The last superhero who has to turn in their costume is... Fat Momma."
Then, when Stan introduced him as the next great superhero, it hit him. He laughed and yelled, especially when his wife came up to him. Then his family and friends and all the others who'd been in the show came up. And fireworks galore.
Then - finally - Stan came up and greeted Feedback in person.
This was a fun--and really cheesy--show. The first reality show I've watched from start to finish. Of course, it was only 6 weeks long, so that probably helped. LOL
I was happy to see Feedback won. Of all of them, he really seemed to be the one most emotionally invested in it. Good for him!
