    S04.E02: Recipe for Disaster

    Wow! I was actually impressed with how she tried to Giada De Laurentiis herself up for this clip! Makeup and a professional hair stylist does wonders for this popeyed girl! Her presentation seemed like Giada would do--i.e. smile at odd moments and camera flirt her way through the thing. I've seen many tv chefs not clean their hands going from something raw to other ingredients and decided after the show is filmed everything's probably just thrown away. Time restrictions probably keep them from taking precious seconds lathering up with soap then rinsing and drying when in reality they would do that.

    I love how this cast seems so capable-- especially the stews. I don't watch this show to see someone trying to be 3rd stew who has never been on one of these charters before. Joao has changed dramatically in his attitude and that's a nice surprise. Please don't bring Brooke back, even on a phone call. I don't like her little whiny voice and saw enough last season. (she was so needy it does seem odd that she would cheat on him... wonder what the whole story there was) Anyway, maybe it's just because they've all banded against the chef but as for now this cast seems the best of the Med shows to me.
  3. At Kyles home with the loveable dogs, I seriously would not have been surprised if Kyle had tossed a tennis ball over her back and seen Lisa Rinna come loping up on all fours with it in her mouth. TOO MUCH RINNA! She was featured in most of the first half of tonights show. I can tell you when this show started to nosedive and that's when they brought Eileen and Rinna on. Rinna is like mold in a shower-- she just takes over. She needs all the attention and won't shut up. I fast forwarded most of my once favorite program :(
  4. Yuck--- I agree. He is not sexy at all to me because he always sounds like his nose is FULL. Gross. Head to an allergist or stop talking.

    S17.E18: Top 5 (2019.05.12)

    The quality of the talent hasn't been up to par this season and I don't understand why. Out of all the people trying out this 5 is the best they could come up with? In my opinion, none of them even closely compare to the final 5 from any previous season. And the judges! Nothing but tongue baths from them and over acting. I've watched every single season of AI but if next year looks to be going along the same lines as this season then sadly I won't be tuning in. ABC can ruin any reality show with ear blasting music, hysterically loud screaming and mostly fake enthusiasm. When a host like Tom Bergeron or Ryan Seacrest has to scream to be heard over the audience until the actual performers begin then I'm out. PS-- This isn't an idle threat. DWTS was my favorite reality show and I stopped watching it for these reasons 2 seasons ago and haven't missed it. I don't want to lose American Idol,too!
  6. I thought I read on this site that Erika's husband had a younger woman and Erika was having to move to an apartment? Did I imagine that? I thought people were discussing how she'd be paying for the glam squad and all that....

    S17.E16 : Top 8

    I think Adam was being kind by not singing more while mentoring this crew. The comparison would be ludicrous!

    …..scratching my head...… I had no idea he was half Asian, that part of the equation really doesn't matter to me. I love Bruno Mars and isn't he part Asian? But then I think Bruno Mars puts on a great show and can sing. In Laines case I think he puts on an o.k. show and has a mediocre voice. No offense meant by my original comment : ) No matter what Laine's ethnic makeup is, I don't think he's 'Idol' material.

    I'll join you on that island! I see nothing new or exciting in Laine. I think his whole aw shucks I'm a hunka hunka burnin love schtick is all he's got going on for him. Will probably win out of this group of forgettables but will be forgotten himself in no time.

    S17.E14: Disney Night - 2019.04.21

    I totally agree with above post. Thank you for saying what I was too lazy to type out :) One other thing: I HATE that ABC thinks their reality shows have to have super loud and have loud annoying audiences. Poor Ryan was pretty much screaming over the screamers/arm wavers to announce who was up next! Do they pay these people to act like that? Maybe beat them before hand and threaten they won't make camera time (horrors!) if they don't act like they loooove everything and everyone on the show? These kids can't be that hyped to hear these contestants without some kind of motivation. The super loud music so that I'm actually straining to hear if the singer is any good... the screaming of the audience, it feels like just too much hysteria. It's one of the reasons I finally quit watching Dancing With The Stars. Along with the show going in the dump, I got tired of hearing Tom Bergeron screaming himself hoarse to be heard over the continuous clapping and screaming of the near hysterical audience! It's like ABC feels like they need to TELL us what is good tv. I hate the thought of it... but I may be through with Idol,too. Two of my very favorite shows just ruined by producer manipulation.

    S09.E10: A Supreme Snub

    Wow, this has quickly become the Lisa Rinna show. I have to hand it to her for getting her whole family on camera. And is there a topic or conversation she doesn't butt into and in her louder than loud voice bring the attention back to HER? Her mom Lois seems sweet-- but she's in her 90's. I couldn't help but picture her as a Lisa type 40 yrs ago and it ruined my enjoyment of her. And those two prune faced daughters.... get them off my screen. I've never stopped watching a Housewives show before- and I've watched them all from the beginning-but I WILL stop watching this one if Rinna is back on next season. She's been after LVP from the start and now that LVP is taking herself off the show (practically) Lisa Rinna is eagerly jumping in front of the camera. And dragging her whole mess of a family with her. As Lisa Rinna happily chortles,"I'll do ANYTHING to get attention!!" it appears she will, but I don't have to watch.

    S17.E13: Top 10 Reveal (2019.04.15)

    I was so thrilled Uche and Demetrius were saved! Normally they wouldn't appeal to me that much but with this season's generic group they entertain me. You never know what they both may do and so here's to the judges for saving them :) Other than that.... eh. The group left behind were forgettable. And I won't remember about 4 of the top 10 by this time next year. I'm sad that with all the talent out there it's turned out to be that kind of season. Someone upthread complained about Katie and her attention seeking ways. I'll admit she entertains me at times, but mostly it's too obviously a 'Look at me!! Look at me!!' ploy that's too long and irritating. My hubby thinks she's attractive-- errr... I mean hilarious, though, which makes me give him the side eye...

    I agree--- pffffft! LOL!! I thought the same thing! That leg kick.... sooo Sally O'Malley!

    S17.E12: Top 14

    I'm old enough to be his grandmother, too, probably! lol But he's my favorite for the same reason as you said-- he's a real entertainer. The rest of the group bored me to tears tonight. Eddie Island and Evelyn were way out of their leagues and should never have been picked to be on this show. The last guy singing Climb Every Mountain was soooo high school spring musical 1968. I love the guy but he's no American Idol. Lane was just an Elvis wanna be. The judges gave everyone a tongue bath, I guess trying to convince us they were star material and we should be blown away. We're not dumb, judges. I need Simon on the show to jerk the contestants all back to reality! ENTERTAIN US! Convince us that you can be AND ARE star material!
