    Ughhh, this show is so annoying! While Renée is by far not my favorite, I think she did have a legitimate "beef" (groan) about being taken off the steak in favor of the guys. I have been in a similar position more times than I can count and nothing gets under my skin more than that. But they won and their steaks were generally done correctly, so at least we know the guys can cook. Her hit or miss performance is probably why she wasn't chosen more than her gender. I think she has more reason to be unhappy with the absence of the accent over her name on her apron than this. Was it me or did some of those steaks they glowed about look overdone for medium rare? Some of them looked more like medium for me and not just the one that one of the judges pointed out was more like medium. I just got the impression they were being harder on Wuta because of the fact that he messed up as team leader in the previous challenge. His steak didn't look any more well done than some of those they said were fine. I will agree that his plate did not look good, and the mistake of choosing hanger steak was unforgivable so I get it.

    A lot of the women on this show are kooky, but Michelle goes way over the line into creepy territory. My stomach was already turning from her, but that rabbit puppet really disgusted me. Brady is another one of those guys that has everything down perfectly but is such an extrovert that he can't take being alone for any length of time. Proof that a critical skill of surviving alone in the wilderness is being able to tolerate isolation. It cancels out all the other survival skills a person has. What a complete waste. I too hate quitters, but I just don't understand putting in all that investment of time and effort and wasting it for no good reason. It feels like something an emotionally weak, pampered, self indulgent person would do. I'm sure their families would understand if they were gone a few more weeks. If they can't handle it, what kind of emotional wussie are they? When I was a kid my Dad went to Army reserve summer camp for 2 months every year. As a kid that felt like an eternity, but in the big picture it didn't hurt me or change one thing for the worse in my life. In fact, I more remember my Dad for his bravery and commitment to his country and THAT by far cancels out missing him for a couple of months every year. But these wah-wah contestants are such babies they can't even see that big picture. If my Dad had quit the army because he missed his family I would think it was sweet but misplaced. And that would be far more negative in the big picture than him sticking it out. Strength of character.

    Female on male rape is a thing and is not that difficult to achieve under conducive circumstances. It usually occurs in a "date rape" kind of situation under the influence of alcohol or some other substance. It's usually where a woman "takes advantage" of a man who is either semi-conscious or unconscious at the time and has not given consent, as this article explains. As we all know, an erection is a physiological response and happens whether or not the man's brain is giving consent to sex. It can also be a case of coercion, usually with an older female exerting pressure on a younger male where there is an imbalance of power in the relationship and the young man feels forced into it. So of course because of that it is quite a bit rarer than male on female rape, but it still exists.

    Yes, and also when Kermit and Medusa stopped appearing so much and then of course disappeared altogether. Bobby and Giada looked like they were sick of the show by the last few seasons and just doing it out of contractual obligation, which didn't exactly help the show either.

    Perhaps, but I've been on boards for a long, long time and know there are a lot of people that don't read those things and don't want to know how much of these shows are faked. Years ago when House Hunters had its own discussion board people were always shocked and acted like the show was spoiled for them when they found out, so it became kind of an unwritten rule to issue a spoiler alert if one wanted to talk about it. That is EXACTLY what I thought on my own so therefore it must be true, lol. It at least might be a reason he went nuts with them because I think he may have had a couple already. I also thought that he looked like he had gotten into drugs because his appearance changed rapidly for the worse in a very characteristic way like other famous drug addicted people I've known about. Then I read in this article that "it is said" that one of the reasons for his breakup was because of his drinking and drug habit. David's drinking and drug habit, not his boyfriend's. Hmmmm.....Gossip, but interesting.

    I thought this article from "Food Network Gossip" was interesting: Has Food Network Star Been Canceled? Someone in the comments said she saw Flay say somewhere that they were going back to the drawing board to revamp the show, so who knows, like everything else it seems, it may come back.

    My Lottery Dream Home

    I've been a fan of David's for 13 years, ever since he was on "Design Star". I even met him in person when he was filming that in NYC. So don't get me wrong, I love David but what is going on with him and the tattoos? I think he's gotten a little addicted to them. It seems like a couple of seasons ago he didn't have any. I saw an episode from 2 years ago and the change in his appearance is kind of shocking and it's not just the tattoos. Also, I agree with what someone else said up thread that I don't watch this show to see people buy a "dream home" that's even more modest than my own modest home. The way they push this show sets you up to see million dollar mansions. I know they have another show for that but why set us up for disappointment? And it's even more disappointing when David includes a really grand place in the choices only to have them choose the most lackluster option in the end. I understand that people don't want to blow all their winnings on a house but it would be nice to see an episode where they won a lot and want to spend a lot. I can tell that David himself is underwhelmed with the houses the people have chosen. He often encourages them to spend more. I've gotten to the point with this show where I can predict (like on House Hunters) which house the people are going to choose. I'm putting it in a spoiler box in case someone doesn't know and doesn't want to know how the sausage is made, lol.

    S09.E05: Paradise Lost?

    Wow, see I didn't see Jon that way at all. I didn't see him as desperate for Molly in the least bit. He was annoyed with her a lot and of course was miffed that she put him off because I am sure he's not used to that reaction from women, plus he put a lot on the line to go on the show, such as quitting his job. Molly was so toxic with him it would have been hard for anyone not to argue with her. And Dave from Texas was a total automaton with anti-BDE energy in my opinion. And toxic, crazy, threatening to the point of restraining order Ryan from season 2? BDE? No way no how. I guess YMMV. One of the famous men making the BDE list online was Tony Bourdain, the traveling TV chef that committed suicide last year. Tony was not as confident in reality as he appeared. He gave off a vibe but inside was not exactly the person that people saw him as. He often said that he was actually shy. But I get why people gave him the BDE label. He was most certainly an alpha male that never seemed to have to work hard to find women. And I'm sure he was confident in his ability in the bedroom.

    I believe that but I wonder how Kate would have hid the smell of smoke from Dr. Pepper when she visited her at home. Unless she never smokes at home (and I've known people like that). I kind of wonder whether that would really be a deal breaker for him if he was really crazy about a woman. Probably not. I don't necessarily think they lie about stuff like this to get on the show. Some of them just don't want to close off any options in case they might miss out on "the one" over a point that wouldn't matter if they really clicked with the person. Matt said something to the effect that she publicly humiliated him, I presume by making him look like a charity case who is unable to take care of himself or whatever. I don't know if I believe that, but even that would be a boneheaded reaction. I would bet my bank account that he brought that up at the very least to put the brakes on and send a signal to her that she's moving in too fast for him. At the worst it was a lame attempt at slipping in an exit strategy because he's not sure about the relationship. I think it was more of a signal to let her know that he doesn't even know what he wants to do career-wise yet let alone with her. Which of course is not what he told the experts or her in the beginning. Back pedaling like that to me can only mean he's at the very least looking for an escape hatch just in case things don't work out.
  12. Yeah No

    S09.E05: Paradise Lost?

    Actually now that you mention Jon, I agree with you that he far more than Jamie has BDE. Jon is kind of like the definition of BDE. I remember thinking that he was too much man for Molly. She would always be in competition with him for who has the most BDE because she thought she was the shit. Next to Jon, Jamie looks like a weak limp noodle, LOL.
  13. Yeah No

    S09.E05: Paradise Lost?

    Did I miss that? I don't remember them asking Matt specifically about the height difference. All I remember is in the segment where the experts were deciding which couples to pick for the show that Dr. Pepper said that Matt had mentioned to her previously that he had dated a woman that was 5'2" in the past so she thought he would be OK with it. I remember thinking that was a big assumption to make and wondered why she didn't ask him if he would be OK being matched with one now. I also remember thinking that this was the choice for most ridiculous couple because the other option in question was the woman that was a professional organizer matched with a messy guy. Either one would have been a risky match, but of course I think that was by design.
  14. Wow, that's some tough news about Nick. I never liked him but would never wish ill upon him either. I'm wondering if the reason he's being sketchy about what kind of job it was and took so long to go public with his injury is because he is receiving workers' comp. and has a settlement pending. I went through that a few years ago and the lawyers tell you not to talk to anyone about it from your old job or on your social media, etc. Depending on the situation he may also have a personal injury case going on as well so that's another reason.
  15. Yeah No

    S06.E05: The Kill

    Yep, and the irony is definitely not lost on me, who started last week off with a deer accident, that "Alone" would pick this week of all weeks to start in with the bigger game killings. I was driving along a pretty busy road in the middle of the day just a half a mile before Home Depot, Target and Wally World when an obviously spooked deer came out of nowhere at 90 mph. headlong into my driver's side front corner. I had no time to react, it was that fast, plus I was doing the speed limit, which at that point was 50. When it hit my SUV it went "pow" then bounced off onto the side of a box truck going in the opposite direction. The poor thing lost a hoof in the process, probably caught in the wheel well or run over. I was in shock standing on the side of the road with the good Samaritans and the box truck driver watching the deer die until the police came. I was a MESS. I really didn't know how an up close experience like that would feel, but I now know that I don't have it in me to be a hunter. I'm still getting over it, but I am better now. That said, it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would to watch this episode. The fact that it was on TV and not in real life helped. I've seen Tony Bourdain's shows in which he witnessed livestock being killed and butchered. Plus when I was a kid my Italian grandma used to get freshly killed rabbits from the live market and butcher them herself so I've seen them in pretty much every state. I'm a decent home cook and have done enough cutting up of carcasses to be able to compartmentalize that. And I suppose I don't have as much of a problem with animals dying when it's not in real life and when I'm not the cause. The deer accident was truly a tragedy. I think killing to survive is another thing altogether. Plus I am for more hunting to control our out-of-control deer population right now. I only wish that would happen because these accidents are on the rise in my area. Anyway, I actually do think it was a great episode in spite of all that, LOL.
