Kate, much like Rockwell, always feels like somebody’s watching her. She dreams of being a model. She wants to put on makeup and dress up, further confirming my suspicions that she will be the resident slutbag. She tells us that due to the fact that the Amish do not believe in photographs of them, she has no idea what she looked like as a baby. They have to wear their dresses at a specific length which is upheld by the church. Not her dress, but the code. Get your minds out of the gutter. Basically, every little thing about aesthetics is regulated heavily so that everyone looks exactly the same.
Kate’s father found out that she was being filmed, so he kicked her out of the house. She’s packing up her stuff and bailing out. She left to go to Florida to be with her Amish friends who moved to a community down there. Maybe that community will be like the Jersey Shore gang when they were in Miami. One can only hope.
We are now introduced to Jeremiah who lives in Ohio, is adopted, and dreams of driving a car.
I’m seeing hotrods in his future. Jeremiah wasn’t born Amish, because he was adopted. He feels like he got the shit end of the stick by being adopted by an Amish person instead of an English person. For those of you who don’t know, the Amish refer to us regular people as “English”.
The bishop watches every move made by Jeremiah and he’s sick of it. SICK OF IT! He realizes that if he leaves, he’s going to be shunned, but I have a feeling this particular guy doesn’t give a damn.
Next, we meet Sabrina the Teenage Crybaby.
Sabrina is a Mennonite who thinks chickens are like people with beaks. Being a Mennonite, she’s allowed to drive cars. Mennonites aren’t as strict as the Amish. Like Jeremiah, Sabrina was adopted into the Mennonite community and hates it. Her dream is to be a singer, but singing is frowned upon in the Mennonite community. She’s crying a lot already, so she’s going to be the drama queen of this show. She’s been receiving death threats since revealing her desire to leave the Mennonites. That sounds like a nice crop of people.
Sabrina reads some of her hate mail, but it’s not as scary as she makes it out to be. She’s crying about being told she’s going to hell and being shunned as the Mennonites shun. When the Amish shun, they aren’t talked to, but can rejoin the community. The Mennonites turn their backs on you.
For whatever reason, Sabrina doesn’t find it fulfilling to polish eggs.
