I voted "No". But let me say, I don't like Jonathan, I think he is beyond annoying and I think he and Victoria have a very unhealthy relationship. I would LOVE to see him eliminated, but not by getting kicked off. I think a lot of what we see is due to editing. Yes, he's said and done all of the stupid, obnoxious things we've seen, there's no way editing could add that stuff. But I'm sure there's a lot more that we're NOT seeing. I read an interview with Gus and Hera where Hera was saying she was surprised at the way Jon and Victoria were being shown on televison. She said Victoria was giving as good as she was getting. So editing is showing us Jonathan being an idiot towards her and that she just kind of takes it, when it sounds like that might not be entirely the case. Again, NOT a healthly relationship.

ITA with you! I also voted no.

I don't like Jonathan, but I don't like Victoria either. I've searched around the net and found many articles that state (from other racers) that she's just as bad as he is and we're just not seeing that.

Their relationship is extremely unhealthy, but I don't feel they should be thrown off the show. I was in an abusive relationship when I was younger and when I saw the footage of them, I was scared and sad for Victoria. However, those feelings have changed after reading everything I've read. They're both surly and downright nasty to one another. It's sad, but it's how THEY choose to live their lives.

I hope they get eliminated soon - and I hope it's without EVER being first! LOLOL!

Maybe instead of trying to get Jonathan kicked off, we shoud write letters to have them show more of what victoria is dishing out as well. if they are as twisted as the other contestants say, we should see it goes both ways.

I know that i had a ex dh who was verbally not physically abusive, and more often than not after watchign this show & listening to him berate her like that ususally sends me to have bad dreams & ive been divorced for 9 years now.

they either need to show more nice stuff or more balanced.

Technically, the question should be "Do you think Jonathan should *have been* kicked off?". This show is filmed in advance.

I voted no. As far as I could tell he has violated no race rules. What he has done is irritating and rude. But so far it has not crossed the line into something that would be illegal.
