Oh, they are together all right. He moved here (Toronto) to be with her, and was sitting with her yesterday at the taping.
Yes, the audience was pro-Maki. We were sitting 2 rows behind Kyra's family, and her niece (around 9ish I'm guessing?) was crying her eyes out while the votes were being read. Maki said in the live feeds that he was recruited in a bar, so no surprise he had no game. Still found him amusing though. The aftermath of Dane's F bombs were really funny though, he was so pissed!! It was the best part of the show, which you guys didn't see.
Kevin fan here too. And I agree with the 1st season to watch again (Lol Topaz), but I can only take Gary in small doses. When they were still doing the Side Show after the eviction taping with Peter and Gary, it was all I could do to keep watching. Peter Brown is so knowledgeable about the game, and Gary barely knew who the houseguests were and the season was nearly over.
