    S21.E10: Power of Veto #3

    That's how I was left feeling as well. I was pissed at the mob mentality gleefulness of the hateful 8 trashing their latest victim, sickened at the smug entitlement and intimidation pouring out of Jack in the SR and just plain sad at the treatment of Nicole. These people have sucked the joy out of BB for me, and that stinks.

    That Whacktivity power was so lame compared to the last one. Sometimes, I'm not bothered as much by producer manipulation.

    I don't think xKHANx was referring to an unconscious bias against people, more a favorable bias. I think it (the term unconscious bias) was referring to the fact that we all tend to gravitate toward people we have the most in common with, the people who we think we're going to get along with best. I've seen it on BB every season from people of all backgrounds.

    Yes, it was. They changed it to Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday for the first couple of weeks. I think it goes back to normal next week.

    I agree he was just clueless, I just don't get how you can be that unaware. The change under the bed comment was a crack up, though.

    It's two very different situations though. His father, who he was close to, died. He very much wished his dad could have been there, and that's the way they chose to honor him. His mother, though, he is estranged from. For whatever reason, they aren't speaking. A wedding is for the bride and groom to enjoy, and if they didn't want someone there that would cause them distress, then she shouldn't be there. I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

    What kind of a guy has no idea that following a girl wearing only a towel into an empty room isn't exactly a comfortable situation? Ovi just followed Christie in and plopped down on a bed, while she's awkwardly picking up her clothes to change into, like they're just settling in for a convo. She actually had to say something about needing to figure out a system for getting dressed before he got a clue.

    S31:E11/12 This One is For One Million Dollars

    I am one of those who had the opinion that the three TAR teams were excluding Victor and Nicole because they weren't a TAR team. For myself, I based my opinion on what was shown on this episode of the show. I didn't base it on podcasts, Twitter, interviews, or anything else. I then posted my opinion in this thread, the thread for this episode of the show. If there is information out there that goes against what was shown in the episode, then it's nice for people to pass on that information. Maybe that would change some opinions on what happened. But to insult people by inviting them to have a bunch of seats, because information gathered from beyond the show's episode casts a different light on things seems a bit rude.

    I get teams helping each other for mutual benefit, because you're best buds with another team, etc.. The problem I had with the final 3 TAR teams helping each other at final 4, was that it seemed like the main purpose was making sure that team "not one of us" didn't make it to the final 3 as opposed to making sure your pal did. I was disappointed in that. As for the coding roadblock, as BarneySays noted above, the person performing the roadblock is to be chosen before the clue is read and the details of the challenge are known. Roadblocks are purposely done that way. Colin giving that info to Tyler and Korey went against how the game is meant to be played. That bothered me. Aside from all that, it's final 4. Helping should be over. You should be doing everything you can to make sure you're as far ahead of other teams as you can get, not putting time and energy into trying to keep another team out of the final 3.

    S04.E04: Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen

    Maybe it's just too casual for a high dollar yacht.

    S04.E03: Cannes You Cook?

    It probably has less to do with outworking someone, and more to do with noncompliance with labor laws. Companies have found themselves in a lot of trouble and have been made to pay back wages to employees who chose to not take their breaks. I think that's why some companies are really rigid with their break policies. On topic, Mila has the right to her beliefs, and everyone else has the right to choose not to associate with her if they find her beliefs offensive. From what I saw, Hannah was dealing with her professionally in the course of their jobs, but didn't want anything to do with her otherwise. Nothing wrong with that.

    S02.E20: If Not Now, When?

    This episode reminded me of a story I read a couple of years ago. The mother in that case was a neonatal nurse who gave birth in the hospital she worked in. It seems like maybe too many complaints are brushed off as "normal". The story is below. It goes without saying that it's a sad story. https://www.rd.com/health/healthcare/american-women-die-childbirth/

    Typical POS rationalization. Of course it's her fault, nothing at all to do with his scumbag behavior. Nope, nothing at all.
