  1. I think the Nicholas Cage story was funny - I think the joke was that some dude said he looked like Nicholas Cage, and he doesn't at all, so they made a big thing of it with the t-shirt and everything. Aside from Captain Sandy and Malia, rest of the crew seems promising, in a "I won't hate them before the season is over" kind of way. Of course, I often feel that way at the start of a new season...
  2. I honestly have no idea what Lindsay was so upset about. Was it because he didn’t propose? And he made a nice dinner and ...that wasn’t a big enough gesture?
  3. Coming from a small family (4 of us) and now living with just one other person, I have no idea what I would do with a second dishwasher. A second oven on the other hand... I surprisingly didn't mind Alison, but we'll see as the show goes on. She and Mike will be an interesting pair. I've seen a lot of his shows and got the impression that he was just barely keeping his huge ego from coming out. The clash of the two egos will hopefully make for good tv.
  4. The whole lead-up to the launch of Discovery+, I kept wondering who would want to subscribe to it at all. Then my mom got it (to watch Naked and Afraid) and I love it. I'm watching this show, and am working my way through the original series. I'm right at the end of season 4. I like the new show, but it seems like they won't ever design people's actual homes due to COVID which I'll miss. Also, will we never get a kitchen challenge where a team fails horribly?
  5. I'm not a Jen apologist, but her show broke when she was on the bar. You can see it in the slow motion replay - her strap on her shoe breaks and she goes forward. Not to discount that she might have also been drunk, and that made the fall worse.
  6. Best part of the Devin/Josh forgot to me was “Josh, what’s 8 times 9”. I laughed so hard at that. Some of these “strong” competitors don’t have a good long term strategy. Like Fessy, he had two chances to go in and didn’t choose to, the others would be idiots to put him in the crater, so unless he wins again it doesn’t look like he will even get the chance to earn a skull. I mean, these people aren’t Mensa members, so maybe none of this think that way. But who wants to go against Fessy in an elimination? I don’t see why you wouldn’t go in early if you trust your alliance to vote in who you
  7. Funny that I didn't remember that at all, but now that you say it, I remember that part of it. I did think she came across as rather unlikeable, but I think she made for entertaining tv. She also considers herself a strategic mastermind, too...so that will be interesting.
  8. I didn't realize this wasn't the actual series premiere until at least halfway in. I kept wondering why they weren't explaining the game or starting a challenge. Oh well, it was nice to have a bit more introduction, especially with the newbies. I think Lolo probably will make for good tv. I remember when she was on starts vs. pros (or whatever it was called) and she was playing hardcore cutthroat for her charity, when everyone else was treating it as a bit of a lark. I thought all of that was fairly entertaining. At least there's no Bananas. My enjoyment of this season is alrea
  9. I think one was meant to be male because the team mentioned their names were "Skip" and something else. Not that it matters if it's two females or not, but if they intended one to be male, I think they failed in that respect.
  10. I have to say, I’m not a country fan so I haven’t paid much attention to the country singers, but Bailey Rae has really impressed me the last few weeks. I thought it was a bit odd for the guy to dedicate Angel to his fiancé when I always thought the song was about suicide (google says it’s about drug addiction) either way, not a romantic song. I hated everything about Carter and Rainbow Connection. It’s a simple song and he made it into something it just isn’t. I’m not a carter fan to start with, so that may also color my opinion... I’m team Desz or Tamara
  11. I feel compelled to point out that there are no penguins in the arctic. If this indeed were supposed to be a north pole wedding, there should not have been penguins. The northern lights wedding, with the two people, they both looked female to me. Also, their faces were creepy. What is the point of keeping all the teams until the end if you're not going to factor in prior work? Otherwise they just should have eliminated a team each week.
  12. Jen clearly thinks she's the main star of the show and the queen bee. Problem is, there is nothing interesting about her. There's no "there" there. She has horrible plastic surgery, a "glam squad" that she takes everywhere...and tries to be risque? That's really all I've got. The rest at least have something going on, beyond just being on a tv show. I also thought it was ridiculous that Jen thought it was ok that Whitney went to Mary's church, but Meredith can't, and you can only be friends with one or the other if you're Meredith but not Whitney? I'm sorry, being friends with two p
  13. When they said Carter was singing "Hero" I just thought "of course he is." He has a good voice but man is he bland. Madeleine (? Country singer on Kelly's team) has now twice in a row sang a "I can't live without you " type song. I'm not a country fan, but those two songs were almost indistinguishable to me. I think there are also some bad song choices. I can't comment on country, since I know none of those songs, but a lot of the other people I have no idea what they're singing and it doesn't compel me to vote for them (although, I don't vote at all, so I suppose it doesn't matt
  14. One thing I just now started to notice - any time Tarek/Christina makes seem to cost them more. For example, in the walk through of the Spanish house, the talked about enlarging the master bathroom by taking space from the hallway bathroom. Then, when everything is torn down, the discuss doing the same thing and it costs $8000 (or whatever number it was) and the show adds the entire amount as "overage." If it was already planned, why is it not in the original budget? Or, they'll pick a tile for the bathroom, and Christina says the cost and it is all added to the overage, but shouldn't tile
  15. I only got election results too. Sad that it appears they won't be airing the one about the Sheik.
