Yeah, that older guy is younger than us. They needed a semi-villain and that was him. Once you knew his backstory, you understood him better. Blown Away tends to fall into that reality show format. Bad guy with a tragic background. A couple of hot women (yes the Japanese woman is pretty. Then again, I now have an appreciation for Asian women. I was surprised the person who won it, did win. I though the young lady who is loosing her eyesight, partially because of glass blowing, would win it.Was it just me or did you find yourself despising that a-hole guy who was clearly the favorite going in (the older guy who was teacher to some of the judges and students)?
