  1. Last year with Caroline was a really bad look for Kate. I think this year, her treatment of Simone was largely due to differing expectations. Kate wasn’t interested in teaching “the basics” of service and Simone expected it. I expect that is production’s fault. Brian, you’ll want to stop talking now. You aren’t making yourself look better. Lordy, the women beautifully excoriated him and I still don’t think he understands how bad he looks. Courtney, you are a gem. Strong, smart, independent, and wise. You were too good for Brian. Tanner is too stupid to see how stupid he is. And I fear it’s a hereditary condition. Rhylee, you know she’s probably a challenge to work with because of her assertiveness but I want her on my squad. She has backed every woman on the boat against these yahoos, even when she’s had disagreements with them (Kate). Kevin’s sisters got to him and he’s embarrassed...to a point. He was doing well, but even as a baker, he can’t stand the taste of humble pie being served to him by Captain Lee. Ashton owes Rhylee and Captain Lee for his life. I wonder if that feeling of being beholden to a woman is part of the issue. One can only hope people around him (if not himself) have expressed their concern with how he got “smashed” and are getting him into rehab. Congrats Abbi. Best wishes!
  2. I don’t think Kate anticipated her revenge to be Kevin presenting the cake to a table without the bachelorette, it just presented itself as an opportunity when Jamelle went to bed. I assume the cake wasn’t made while dinner was being served, therefore Kevin would have had to make it regardless. It wasn’t Kate’s fault he “wasted time”...it was already made before Jamelle decided to go to bed. I used to work with someone like him...everything was a personal attack. There was no such thing as an accident, it was all a coordinated effort to make her fail. Kevin is just like that. Simone, you have no idea how young you look. Adopting the social strategy of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” leaves you looking gullible and vulnerable to unsavory people (Kevin). Lindsey, I hope Brian did fall asleep. You were upholding the standard of intelligent womanhood. Don’t let me down girl! But her exit walk and the dog...I’ll forgive her pretty much anything. Tanner, you are gross. I am sure your mother still loves you, but do you think she’s going to be proud to tell her friends about your appearance on this show? Because, bru, no. She’s not bragging about her horney, mean, drunk son’s 15 minutes of fame.
  3. Brian has a daughter. Dude, would you want any man to treat her the way you are treating Rhylee??? One day she will see this and have hard questions for you. I hope you have more backbone then and can admit you were a weak follower who bullies someone he saw as different. It is telling that Brian hasn’t tweeted since the new year. Simone, it isn’t rocket science. You banged Tanner because he was “your type”. At first I thought you meant his looks, but it is now clear your type is “emotionally unavailable user.” Maybe next time pick against type. Kevin has to be a plant. No one is that clueless about how he comes off on camera, right? Ashton...you have no moral high ground to talk about Rhylee. And the look you had on your face when Captain showed up was exactly the look my 7 year old wears when he is caught eating cookies for breakfast. You are a child, not a manager. And Jamele Hill didn’t “leave” ESPN, she was fired.
  4. Yes, Under The Gunn. I don’t remember her name, but I can’t even listen to Tim Gunn on Sophia the First wi hour getting upset. He lost ALL credibility with that BS.
  5. There was that one season of Project Runway: Something Or Other (it was two teams with mentors) and Tim was a bully to one of the odd female designers on that show. He joined the other designers in ganging up on her and ever since then, I felt Tim could take a flying leap off my screen because I don't like mentors who play favorites. And maybe it's because I am not in fashion, and maybe it is because of editing, but I rarely understood half of what Tim was trying to accomplish with his advice. It all seemed to boil down to "think about what you're doing" (as if the designer wasn't thinking before?) or "do better!". He never seemed to give actionable advice. Christian is able to provide constructive advice and it seems to me to be clear and actionable. I am eternally grateful that my husband loves me more than he dislikes my sibling and my sibling in law. I find it odd (and disingenuous) to think that so many people think that they should abandon the person they love because their loved one's family may not be all that they want. Tyler was in a state. He thought he had a good design and I think the judge's opinions came out of nowhere. Some people think they are much cleverer than they actually are, and I think Tyler's comments were his attempt to laugh off the criticism and it turned out to be in extremely bad taste to essentially tell a judge what could easily be understood as, "I know you're here because of who you're married to, not your own talent." I am not surprised he was cut. Historically, we've been told that each week the contestants start with a blank slate and each outfit is judged on its own merits, I have never bought that a history of poor design isn't taken into consideration when the designer is on the bottom again and again. He had two criticisms of "too costumey" and then over-corrected to "too safe" and added a dash of "outside of the parameters" to top it off. I find myself often saying "It's my pleasure" or just "my pleasure". I used to be upset that someone would assure me that it was "no problem" for them to help me because...of course it isn't. That's what you're paid do to. But as I've gotten older (Gen Xer), I've come to realize that what I really want is for someone to be polite and acknowledge my thanks. It's kind of like the Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays "issue". I try not to get upset when someone wishes me wellm even using words I wouldn't choose myself.
  6. You choose your spouse, not your in-laws. Maybe Karli was smart enough to know that alienating a section of the audience by insinuating politics was unwise. Just think if you were judged based on your in-laws (or in this case in-law in-laws). We don't know the entire Kushner family, we know two people who are public figures. Maybe, all these people who are "politically correct" (Sergio's chiron description that practically has to be two lines long to describe his wokeness) could focus on, you know....fashion design?
  7. Kevin is the King of Excuses. The baby of the family is never at fault. Shut up Kevin. You suck. I really wish Rylee had struck it out of the park just to tell the boys to stuff it. I don’t think she failed, I think fishing is as much luck as skill (as the wife of an often frustrated fisherman). I HATE that captain doesn’t seem to care that the only description of the event comes from a guy who admits he doesn’t remember what happened. Maybe ask Kate what happened? She is a better person than I am as I would have excoriated Ashton and he would have been begging for his *insert family member I am not allowed to mention here*. Guest Molly is a former America’s Next Top Model contestant.
  8. When Marcus came in and said, "You're busy!" I was pretty surprised. If that is what busy looks like, the company is in trouble.
  9. I mean, they aren't robots. Actors are real people, too.
  10. The LG InstaView with Craft Ice "I'm a baller" commercial. Don't palm my ice cube and drop it in my drink (hey, look at all the surface area that this ice cube has to hold on to your sweat, dirt and germs!). That is gross. If you aren't using a dispenser, use a tool.
  11. Now that this episode has aired and has brought attention to the patent issue, how long before Coco Doofus gets served with cease and desist papers from the actual patent holder upon whom he is infringing?
  12. You'd be surprised at how few health plans actually had "insurance company" involvement. Over half of the employees working in the US are covered by self-funded plans...employers who fund the claims themselves. They only use administrators to adjudicate claims (determine if they fit the definitions the employer chooses). Edited to add: I am still surprised why anyone who comes into the Tank with an "alternative" healthcare product is gunning to partner with Mark (which is what seems to me was the situation with the doctor here--he seemed to be shocked when Mark withdrew and kept looking back at him like he was trying to resurrect the deal). Just once, I'd like for someone to come in, immediately acknowledge that this isn't a product Mark is going to be behind and talk to the other 4 Sharks. The shovel would be very helpful if I hadn't outsourced the vegetable garden to the neighbors. They get to grow a garden on our land--the only plot of southern exposure on the lake, and I get free veggies on my door step. For you all you black thumbs out there, I highly recommend the arrangement.
  13. She doesn’t appear to be looking for that substance on the boat, so while it is possible she hasn’t seen the show before, it is equally possible she has and knows what not to expect.
  14. The scariest thing for me when watching Brandy was the loss of motor function. She was limp. Man, I get she was drunk, but I’ve never seen someone in that state of drunkenness before. If I were on the boat, I’d be Courtney. She isn’t joyless, she is just so over the childishness of the behavior—drunkenness, flirtation, mindless fawning. She wants something of substance and none of these yahoos is likely to give it to her.
  15. Kevin is an idiot. Everything is someone else’s fault. He thinks he is untouchable. He likes to put people down to maintain his own self-importance. Dude, you just served canned crab and frozen mussels to paying clients on a super yacht due to YOUR OWN FAILURE. You have lost the right to act like your poop doesn’t stink. And your great grand daddy chef named Kevin didn’t go down with the Titanic. No such person existed. But I mean, if you don’t look at the crew rolls, you can cite ignorance. Ashton continues to surprise me with his maturity and leadership. I like this guy a lot.
