We finally got to see Kate and the kids go on their Australian adventure and it was quite the scene watching Kate catch dinner and swim with sharks!
Kate Gosselin and her tired eight little Gosselins finally made it Down Under! The highly anticipated Kate Plus 8 episode aired on April 4 and we couldn’t wait to see what they’d get into. We must admit, it was quite the feat watching Kate make her way through the airport in an itty bitty jean skirt and stilettos!
Kate and the Gosselettes got to go to the beach and they were screaming as their little feet touched the ice-cold water. Kate talked to a guy in a Speedo and said the kids talk to her ex-husband Jon Gosselin but that she doesn’t. Kate showed off her tanned and toned figure – she looks amazing for having eight kids!
After watching the New Year’s Eve fireworks and having an almost-medical emergency when one of the sextuplets got her knee stuck in a bench, the night ended with crying and more tired little Gosselettes.
Kate decides she’s had enough of the yelling — she leaves the kids behind and goes to swim with the sharks by herself! But when did the show turn into a show about Kate? Isn’t the entire point of the hour long special supposed to center around Kate AND the kids? After eight hours on the boat, Kate sees no sharks but decides to catch dinner for the kids instead. She catches eight fish!
Later the kids go camping and learn the ways of Australia from some true aborigines. The little ones danced around in the sand and fell in love with a didgeridoo! The aborigines gave the kids one their own wind instruments. Kate said she liked it because of the spots on it that reminded her of polka dots.
The children camped out in a massive tent, and despite some bug bites they had a great time.
The episode left us with scenes from the next episode where the clan heads to the Australian Zoo – it looks like a blast!
We can’t wait to see what happens on the next Kate Plus 8. But we just hope Kate finds some more comfortable shoes!
