The Academy Awards aka "Oscars"
After three episodes of Steampunk'd, the award winning new show from Jennifer Duncan and Game Show Network/GSN, I feel it is time to talk about what I love about the show while giving re-COG-nition to the fine Makers who are getting a stiff kick in the brass each week for our amusement.
Oh there's been drama, yelling, screaming and threats. I'm just not sure they are happening ON the show. Everyone has been quick to say what they don't like about the show, what doesn't pass the steampunk "smell test" and who should and should NOT, be voted off.
There has been too much of this:
How about we switch gears (not the first of many bad steampunk puns in this Blog Post) and talk about what we love about the show?
I don't need no stinkin pattern~ Award
Goes to: Tayliss Forge
For her exquisite Kimono and Geta shoes without any pattern what-so-ever
(Episode 1.3). This lady can and does, sew thread into TV gold.
Honor before Blame-Award
His honorable and very dignified acceptance of responsibility (Episode 1.3), made us all love him even more (Like we needed more reasons to love this talented steam-hunk). He's a fan favorite and my personal friend. James exited the show like a man's man.
Thinking on their Feet~Award
Pretty much every episode, we see our own Steampunk Xena Warrior treading new ground. Karianne, have you made knives before? "Nope. But I can do it!" (Episode 1.3) This seems to be Karianne's life mantra. She will always figure it out, no matter what you throw at her (Unless it's throwing knives and then she might throw them back at you).
Double Award Winner-Ave Rose
Honoring a Fallen Maker-Award
Giving the little dancing man the name Prince Tobias was a sweet and moving memorial to another Fan Favorite that we had to say goodbye to, too soon. Well done Team Ave (Episode 1.2)!
They've got more talent in their little pinky than most people have in their whole body-Award
Again, Ave Rose is a human firecracker of talent and passion. I am sure she already has a lifetime of creative ideas just waiting to be born. Ave is our own Queen of FrankenSteam.
I am just really happy to be here-Award
Charles Edward Mason II
This man oozes joy and goodwill like no other Contestant. I swear they could ask him to steam a toilet (tryouts anyone?) and he would set about the task while singing and smiling (Episodes 1.1,1.2,1.3 + infinity). We can't help but adore Charles!
Owns the Room-Award
With her commanding presence and mega-watt smile, Jeannie Mai knows how to get both the Contestants and the Judges attention. GSN could not have cast a stronger Host for the show.

So those are my awards to-date. I really do love the Maker Skills of each and every Contestant on Steampunk'd. The world they are bringing to households all over the U.S. is one of beauty, skill and ingenuity. We love seeing the back-story and details of how they made what and materials used. *hint-hint*
Please feel free to post the things you love about the show or positive affirmations for the Makers to this Blog Post. A little love goes a long way!
Now for that secret. The one I teased you all with. The one I told you that no one wants you to know. It is revealed in the two photos below. The first shows Judges Matt King, Kato, Thomas Willeford and Host Jeannie Mai. Matt King looks to be the shortest of the four in this photo,
but look now at the reveal photo...
AHA!!! Matt King is actually the tallest member of the group.
And now you know......
