After all, both women had a lot of gumption to make it as the first all-female team ever to be in the Final Three on the show. And, I didn't see too much going really easy for them. Despite any qualms about their outspoken and blunt ways, they ran a good race and went much farther than I ever thought they would go.
One of the aspects which drove the team is that both women are single mothers, making it on their own.
Now the fame of being on the show may have made things a bit tougher for Lyn and her family. According to their local CBS affiliate in Alabama, Lyn's house was burglarized and it looks like the thieves took everything they could get.
An excerpt from the WIAT TV article I read:
Sigh, how horrible is that just before the holidays? She didn't win a heck of a lot of money on the show coming in third. Yet, the bit of fame cost her so much.
Last week, just days before traveling to New York for the finale weekend, she came home to find her house in shambles.
"The house was wide open. Someone had forced their way through the front door, everything was in the floor, nothing was untouched, even food out of the cabinets, and taken the plumbing from under the house," said Turk.
The burglars had busted through two sets of doors to enter the home, and pillaged nearly everything inside.
"They literally pulled out everything. I mean its stuff out the closet, stuff out the drawers, it was stuff in this cabinet and you can see where they dusted for prints over there," said Turk.
Numerous items were stolen, including her son's play-station, and valuable copper pipes under the home.
