    S06.E20: Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow

    I'm kind of amazed Ollie didn't do the "a country you think about so little, you didn't realise that's not Turkmenistan, it's a silhouette of a smashed garden gnome" joke. I miss it.

    In America. Pretty much everywhere else they wouldn't raise many eyebrows. (Actually, US TV censorship would be an AMAZING subject for an episode, now that I think about it.)

    Australian Survivor

    Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. The first two episodes just aired on Wednesday and Thursday to make room for the last couple of episodes of Masterchef. (Why they didn't just delay the premiere four days and started on the Sunday, I have no fucking clue.)

    Luke's a boring twit. The fact that he's giddy and cheeky all the time doesn't make him any less irritating and one note than, say, Special Agent (Question Mark) Phillip Sheppard.

    Season 40 Speculation and Spoilers

    The logo, from the IG poster mentioned in that article. Despite the title, it appears to be shipwreck themed. Again.

    S07.E06: I'm a Little Muskrat on a Mission

    The lacrosse task would have been more forgivable if they hadn't already done it (at this exact point of the race, as well) in Quebec City in season one and thus already knew it was a dud.

    Apparently Sam tried forming an alliance against her early on but the Contenders winning all the time meant they never had to go to Tribal Council. Which would have been nice if they'd bothered to show it.

    Survivor in Other Countries

    Yeah it got cancelled pretty much immediately after the season aired last year, and the host is now doing a completely different reality show having to complete challenges while starving on a tropical island. (My guess is the rights to the Survivor name were too expensive for the NZ broadcaster.)

    Survivor in Other Countries

    Australia's current season is shaping up to be an even bigger dud than last year. Thank fuck for Survivor South Africa. I'm loving how even though the Island of Secrets is literally just Ghost Island With A Twist Every Week, they've handled it so competently that it feels new and exciting. Between this and the Outpost on the dearly departed Survivor NZ last year, and Australia working more closely with the Survivor US crew these last two years, it's almost like this show does still have a lot of life in it when Probst et Al aren't involved.

    S21.E16: Power of Veto #5

    Right? The only other one I can think of in BBUS history is the "find the house's pet pug among a herd of 50 pugs" filler challenge from BB1. I know there was quite a few on BBUK and BB Australia before they both got cancelled, but it's especially jarring coming from this franchise that usually dresses up the same boring challenges with new set decoration every damn year.

    John Dirt. Another season of sexist editing it is, then. How is it that even in an episode that focuses on the Contenders, we still didn't get anything meaningful from most of their women?

    Pretty sure Fenella had more airtime in that episode than half the cast.

    Masterchef (AU)

    My thing with Curtis Stone is... like, why is he a thing? Why do people keep insisting he's popular? Because there's basically no evidence of it. He's hosted so many shows he's basically this generation's Larry Emdur, and the only ones that weren't total flops were Top Chef Masters (which had existing brand recognition and was already in its third season when he took over), My Restaurant Rules (where he was so bad he got fired and replaced with noted TV chef Dicko after one season), and Surfing the Menu (and Ben O'Donoghue is far better, if we're going to raid it for new judges). Everything else? Disaster.

    Masterchef (AU)

    And George was never heard from again.

    Masterchef (AU)

    As long as it's not (1) three white men, (2) Poh, Billie, and Matt, or (3) any combination featuring either Curtis Stone or Maggie Beer, I'm good. (Seriously though, as one Twitter commenter put it, imagine how long it would take Maggie to say something racist in that backhanded patronising "oh you have such int-e-resting flavours!" Boomer way. Ten minutes, tops.)
