Nail’d It Episode 3: Recap

Nail'd It Episode 3: Recap

Nail’d It Episode 3 is zooming onto Oxygen tonight. I have been waiting for this episode ever since I saw my first Nail’d It tease.

Pitbull Performs & Judges Tonight on “Dancing With The Stars”

Dancing With The Stars Pitbull

Tethered episode 3

In our recap of Discovery’s survival series Tethered episode 3, titled “Bayou Breakdown,” we go to Louisiana’s alligator filled bayou where we meet Rob Greenfield and Kevin Dutoit. We learn Rob biked 2,000 miles to Louisiana— barefoot — before even starting the journey. We figure Kevin probably flew first class. Rob’s first to arrive at the destination. Rob took one look at Kevin in his preppy-boy attire (yes, he had a sweater neatly tied around his neck) and knew he was in trouble. Kevin took one look at Rob and felt relief. Kevin, however, reassures Rob that he’s not a … Continue reading
