Amish Stars Choose: City or Country?
Jonas, 18: Undecided
"I know people who've been gone for ten years and come back," he says. Jonas now works construction in Florida. Change? "I know a little more about fashion," he says, "but I'm still me."
Ruth, 20: The City
"I'm dreading it," Ruth says of telling her parents her decision. She hopes to pursue a nursing degree and is living with her boyfriend in Ohio, working at a factory and painting apartments.
Randy, 24: The City
"I like cars better than buggies," says Randy, who is currently doing construction work in Florida with Jonas, and now owns a Honda Accord. "I'm staying in the city. In like 50 years I'm gonna go back."
Miriam, 22: The City
After taping ended Miriam returned to her family, then decided to go back out on her own. She's now a waitress in Ohio and is studying for the SATs. Her biggest step: "I wear heels!"
Mose, 25: Undecided
Mose has been working construction in Missouri, but says he's leaning towards going back to the Amish. A telling sign that he's dropped his city sense: "The mullet is back," he laughs.
