The "large majority" of Americans ruin it? Do you even have a clue? I'm surprised to such an ignorant and idiotic thing said on this board to be honest.
I'm an American, and I haven't seen the episode yet, but I would be horified if people judge the majority of Americans based on "people" they meet in the podunk South. If you want to meet a REAL average American, go to the West Coast, Mid West, or North East. I'm sure most every country has their small pockets of freaks. Sounds like TG went out of their way to find ours...congratulations.
Can't wait to see the episode though...
