    S06.E02: Tainted

    Do we know that Donny had the "widowmaker" heart attack (which is caused by a build-up of cholesterol) as opposed to let's say a blood clot to the heart? I have a good friend that had the latter kind of heart attack several years ago at the age of 41 and he's been cleared by his doctor for pretty much any kind of intense physical activity as long as he takes his meds. I would like to assume that production would have made sure Donny was completely cleared by doctors and independent medical exams before allowing him to go on the show. I would hope they would at least do that. Although you never know with these reality shows as they often seem to show a lack of good judgment in casting. I know, I was wincing when I saw how recklessly she was using that knife. I cook a lot so I'm very tuned into handling knives correctly and that was just unbelievable. Sure, I've cut myself a few times, but really not that much considering how much I use knives on a regular basis. And I would NEVER under any circumstances do anything close to what she was doing there. I don't get how these people that are supposed to be "experts" do such stupid things. It just boggles my mind. OK, I already see Nikki as a kook so that's part of the problem with her, but geez Louise, how stupid could you possibly BE? I know we've seen it before on this show but it still boggles me that so-called "experts" can make such outrageous fatal rookie mistakes, especially with knives for some reason, and usually within the first few days. I know that on cooking competitions people are rushing and that makes them more prone to cutting themselves but why out in peaceful nature where there's no time clock to heap on additional pressure? It almost makes me wonder if there isn't some sort of phenomenon involved in this. Like maybe the intense stress and hunger in the first week makes them make huge errors in judgment.

    That would be great, but given how the show keeps violating it's own internal logic, I don't expect that to be very realistic either.

    S.09 E.01: Nice To Marry You

    I don't know why but she reminds me of a very young 80s Whitney Houston, down to the way she puts her hair up. She is strikingly attractive. I hope the virginity thing doesn't become another "never had an orgasm' thing like they made a huge deal about with Sheila in season 5.
  4. Yeah No

    S.09 E.01: Nice To Marry You

    If my father ever said the word "penis" to me in ANY context, let alone THAT one, I think I'd pass out. If he even said the word in the same ROOM with me, I'd pass out. Yikes, boundary issues galore here. Pepper called her a "princess", but I think it's even worse than THAT....just YUCK. Yeah, she's going to be quite infatuated with him because of the basketball thing, but I wonder how she'll feel when that wears off in time. I don't know why but the personality vibes each of them send out don't add up to a match to me. Other than the outward stuff they might find appealing about each other I sense other things that they might clash on coming in the future. And I'm not even talking about the height difference, although I'm 5'2" and I would NOT want a husband that much taller than me, thankyouverymuch. The fact that he is estranged from his family and she said before she met him that she hoped he had a nice accepting family doesn't bode well either. We'll see how far her infatuation can stretch!
  5. Yeah No

    S.09 E.01: Nice To Marry You

    When I squint hard enough the two of them remind me of Kathy Griffin and a balding Jerry Seinfeld. And wouldn't THAT be a match made in hell, lol?

    S06.E01: Big Day

    Yeah, it seemed like too much of a TV contrivance designed to make it look like Charles is oh-so-smitten that he'd go way out on a limb with grand romantic gestures. Well, if the show has to try that hard to make him look swept away with her then blech. I was always a Charles shipper but not in love with the way the show went with this. Him giving everything up for her does not bode well for their future together let alone his alone. It's too much. He just looks pathetic and that's not the look this character should have. And him putting Kelsey in charge over Diana is stupid and just not believable either. Then the dumb way they glossed over making Diana come around by singing 9-5 almost insults the audience's intelligence. Not that I don't love the song, but come on, who is writing these scripts? Are they stoned when they do it anymore?
  7. Yeah No

    30 Minute Meals

    LOL if you think that's bad you should see what she wears on her talk show. It's so bad I can barely tolerate looking at her. No one could force me to wear the stuff she wears, not even to the local store to buy a loaf of bread much less on national TV. For a while she was wearing another abomination sweater with horizontal stripes and a long frumpy black skirt with ginormous athletic shoes that make her feet look unnaturally huge. BTW, she's actually 5'3".

    Valerie's Home Cooking

    I was wondering where he was on this episode as he usually appears when family is around. He just appeared on the last episode when friends came over. I did think it was weird that he didn't appear when Wolfie came over.
  9. Still happening for me too. I notice if I click on a thread from the list on my forum home page it goes to first unread post but if I do it from my "topics I follow" activity stream it goes to the very beginning of the thread.
  10. Yeah No

    S06.E01: Icebreaker

    Yeah, that and arrogant too. Oh he's too good to need a ferro rod, doncha know? That said I do think some of these people are a cut above some contestants from other seasons in terms of ability. After 5 seasons we barely saw anyone kill a mouse much less hit a squirrel straight through the head with an arrow on freaking week ONE! When I saw that I was like whoa! Already we're getting teased and who knows if we'll ever see the actual footage of that woman where it looks like she's petting a lynx. I was like, "Wait...what?" I'm still not sure I really saw that. Why do they so often make the older guy the asshole on competition shows? I hate that. As soon as I saw Tim walking in that rough area I knew he was the one to break something. Given some of the teasers I'm not sure he's the only one to tap out after only a few days because of an injury. Nikki's not ready for snow. So why did she go to the freaking ARCTIC? LOL I thought I read on the screen that it's not all that uncommon for there to be snow in September there. Didn't any of them research the area online for weather? Although kook or not, Nikki's knowledge and experience is kind of impressive already. Agreed with the above that they're stacking the deck for a shorter season and/or more gut wrenching drama toward the end as people push themselves to ever greater lengths to tolerate bad weather. I too want to know exactly where they are on a larger map to get a bearing on their exact location. I feel like they're being deliberately vague about that for some reason.
  11. Yeah No

    Masterchef (US)

    Is that airing on Canadian TV right now? That's probably a later season than I'm talking about. Usually here in the US the Cooking Channel would show the most recent season several months after it had already aired in Canada. But that didn't happen last year for some reason. I know there was a season that happened in 2018 that I never saw because I was seeing posts for it on this board when it aired in Canada. I remember some of the names of the contestants that were mentioned in the thread but tuned out after a while because I didn't want to know who won. My DVR is set for it so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have missed it if it aired on the Cooking Channel later.

    Worst Cooks In America

    Well, to be fair I think there's a big difference between using a cookbook and having your hand held every step of the way. A cookbook won't tell you to watch your frying pan because your meat is going to burn or that your knife cuts are not uniform. I don't know if I'm remembering wrong but it does seem like the chefs do more hand holding now than in earlier seasons, which makes me feel that the result isn't as much "theirs and theirs alone" as it should be.
  13. Yeah No

    America's Test Kitchen

    That's something I might have done, but a friend of mine once asked me whether he should use one on his car and I told him I didn't know and to Google it, which turned up this page: https://www.familyhandyman.com/cleaning/things-you-should-never-do-with-a-magic-eraser/ I can get lost in that site for hours.
  14. Yeah No

    America's Test Kitchen

    I haven't seen the episode yet but I wonder why they didn't explain why they decided that baking powder works better. Usually they do stuff like that. I use Magic Eraser to clean coffee stains from cups and it works like a charm. It also works on flatware.
  15. Yeah No

    Worst Cooks In America

    It seems that way, doesn't it? When was the last time Tyler's (or anyone else's) recruit won? Seems like only a handful if that, and they were probably only for appearance's sake. Seriously, Anne is that clueless about how some of the audience might feel about Tonya? Clearly she's old enough to remember what happened. Or maybe she just doesn't give a crap. It seems to be all about her winning and who cares how anyone else might feel about anything or anyone. It insults the audience's intelligence, though.
