    S31E01: You're In Our Race Now

    I also remember that episode and can honestly say that if my racing partner lost his passport for the 2nd time (It was revealed in interviews after that Floyd had already done it one time that wasn’t shown on camera.), I would be pissed too. If I remember correctly, all she did was kind of snap at him in a bitchy tone and that was it. It’s not like she berated him for hours and never forgave him. I would have been way bitchier about it, to be honest.

    S31E01: You're In Our Race Now

    You’re spot on. The first season of TAR was the only season that was filmed before 9/11 and it was filled with people running through airports, scrambling to get on a faster flight, or booking different connections through different countries. That all changed for obvious reasons and they usually ended up spoonfeeding the teams a selection of flights. It wasn’t as fun as before but at least there was some benefit to hustling. Now I think they’ve just gotten lazy and realized it’s easier from a production standpoint to have them all on the same flight whenever possible.

    Finally got a chance to watch. I’m so glad TAR is back! Normally I loathe when shows recycle contestants but, I have to admit, I didn’t mind it this time. It was kind of nice to just enjoy the race and not have to try to learn a bunch of new names. Not that I’d want this every season or anything but it was kind of nice to give my brain a break this season. It also helps that I like almost all of the contestants. I’m fine with Art and JJ going out first because they’re the only ones I don’t remember at all. But they prevented us from getting rid of Rupert so I now hate them. I remember back in the old days, I was one of a handful of people who absolutely loved Colin & Christie and, it turns out, I still love them! It’ll be funny to see a mellow Colin.

    S38:E09 Y'all Making Me Crazy

    Ok, this bull with the 5 million secret conversations at Tribal needs to stop. It’s getting ridiculous. The whole point of Tribal is to discuss everything they were discussing in little groups anyway. I know Probst loves that crap but it’s so frustrating for the viewers because the vote ends up making no sense. Like how did they suddenly end up voting out Julia? Sure would have been nice to actually hear those conversations.

    S38:E08 I'm the Puppet Master

    I really think it's a non-issue at this point. Everyone here clearly knows Wardog's name is Dan, as evidenced by the many many many posts discussing it. So there really shouldn't be anymore confusion.

    Plus, Eric wasn’t even close to being as smug and annoying as Edgardo and his buddy (I wanna say Alex?). To be honest, I didn’t even really know who Eric was until this episode. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great blindside but it didn’t bring the same sense of satisfaction as when Edgardo’s face fell. Now I want to go find a clip of that Tribal! (Also an example of an actual iconic moment, Jeff.)

    I'm guessing the editors have made that her primary edit because they wanted a big lead up to her passing out.

    I don't think I ever said I thought she was badass because she got up after fainting. I also don't think I ever said that she was a badass player in general. I said that I thought she was kind of badass in this specific situation because the only thing she was upset about was not winning the challenge. And she didn't whine about it or try to milk it for attention, which I appreciate. I heard quite a few of her tribemates call her Big Wendy.

    Yes, I acknowledged that her and Kiki hated each other. I was referring to the other messages, she eye rolled her way through pretty much all of them. Will not miss her at all.

    I know, right? And why do Kyra and Keira hate each other so much? And did I miss where they told us that Keira injured her foot? I had no clue why Anthony was carrying her up the stairs and was surprised when a random crew member carried her out. Not using the blood Veto was sooooo anti-climactic but I’m kind of glad she didn’t use it because I didn’t like Keira. I could have done without her eye rolls during the goodbye messages when people were genuinely being nice to her.

    I’ve been wondering if they made any effort to catch the chickens or if they decided it took too much energy. I seem to recall some chicken-chasing shenanigans in past seasons. I hope that didn’t happen this season and the editors deprived us of that footage, I love rooting for the chickens!

    They were clearly joking about that.

    S38:E08 I'm the Puppet Master

    I don't think anybody there heard Lauren, she was saying it very quietly, almost to herself. It didn't look like anybody noticed anything was wrong until she actually passed out. I mean, Probst loves drama, he would have been all up in her face with his idiot questions and comments: "Tell me what's going on Lauren." "Lauren feeling like she's going to die but is digging deep. That's how ya DO it!"

    I don't have any sympathy for anybody who gets screwed over by the blood veto since they all just sat there and let Kyra have it. Dummies. I really want to root for Sam but then she does things that frustrate the hell out of me. That's now twice that she's overheard Adam & Dane clearly plotting with each other, she absolutely has to know that Adam has an alliance with the guys yet she's just choosing to ignore it. As a viewer and as a woman, it makes me want to smack her upside the head. Like, girl, you can always find another boy toy....when else are you going to get a chance to win a shitload of money and prizes? Damien's "You get a veto! You get a veto!" followed by "You get backdoored! You get backdoored!" cracked me up. I wish we'd get to see more of him and Cory. I always forget they're even there. Also, how is Arisa "particularly loud"? She doesn't yell or scream or anything. Is it because, unlike the Chenbot, she actually displays emotions? Because I love that about her.

    I'm pretty sure the poster who wrote "Leslie" was just mistaken about Lauren's name. I don't think they intentionally used the wrong name just to confuse people. It was an honest mistake. As for Wardog, he's on the official CBS cast page as Dan "The Wardog" DaSilva so I have no issue with people calling him Dan. That's his name. In terms of why I thought Lauren was kind of a bad ass last episode, the majority of the cast quickly dropped out of that challenge but, despite feeling dizzy and weak, she refused to quit until she literally passed out. Then, when she woke up, her first thought was how pissed she was that she was out of the challenge. To me, that's bad ass.
