Confused -- Why didn't the name property be 'Rainbow Dash'.
the instructor only used Print function once. Shouldn't the name all be 'Rainbow Dash'. Can anyone explain me the principle behind? Thank you very much.

Hi there! It did become "Rainbow Dash". Inside the print function he changes the name and age of the person and those are then added to the DOM. Take a look around 4:21. He changes the name and then appends a new paragraph to the page with the new name.
Hope this helps!
edited for additional information
We have a line that adds a paragraph to the DOM with the original name. Then we change the name. Then we add a new paragraph with the new name.
