I know Roo and to be honest if he were not on this series I probably would not watch it. Well I watched it while Roo was in Indiana and it was nail biting. I have the greatest admiration for Roo and support 100% his love and respect for the animals on this earth.

I competed in Indianapolis, which was the third episode this season. They have the full episodes on NBC.com and Hulu so you can go back and watch that one if you'd like. The Indy Finals are scheduled to air July 25th. Thanks for tuning in!

The rolling log looked treacherous, glad you made it. It is fun to watch when you have a local to root for. Can't wait for 7/25 and the city finals.
