The Golf Channel's Big Break IV has me bawling like a baby
So who?s been watching this season?s Big Break? Big Break IV, or Survivor: Carnoustie, as I like to call it, aired its third episode Tuesday. It features a team of Americans going head to head Ryder-Cup style against a group of Europeans. And I?m not going to lie, it?s hard to watch.
Not because it?s bad. On the contrary, it?s arresting and well produced, with highly addictive properties. It?s hard to watch because it?s so darn sad.
Last week?s episode featured the ousting of Bart. You may remember Bart from Big Break II, the ?people?s choice? winner who was invited back for another go-around. His big second chance lasted exactly one competition, at the end of which he was sent packing.
?This was my last chance to follow my dream,? he said in a particularly heart-rending final interview. (Cue the violins.) ?I have to be realistic now, I have a wife and a child to think about.? Good God, are those actual tears? Yes, he?s crying! Now I have to cry too, darnit! It?s like going to a wedding, I?m fine until the person next to me starts to sniffle.
This week Frenchman Richard got sent back to gay Paree. Well, okay, maybe that wasn?t so tragic. The competition came down to him and Edoardo from Italy, possibly the greasiest man I?ve ever seen on television. Edoardo keeps popping up when you least expect it–for example, as Angel Cabrera?s caddy during last weekend?s President?s Cup.
So if you like your televised golf with a helping of extra cheese, check out the Big Break IV, Tuesdays at 9. But you might want to bring a hanky.
Buh bye, Bart.
