lasu April 15, 2020 Share April 15, 2020 I enjoyed the heck out of both of those seasons. I didn't remember Cutthroat to the point I'm almost convinced I've never seen it before. Not quite convinced, but I'm not 100% sure I had truly seen that whole season. I had a few thoughts: I don't think I ever knew/remembered that Camila came in off of some rando season. I actually felt badly for her her rookie season and was impressed again at what a good competitor she was. Too bad she was such a trash human being - she really could have gone far with the franchise. Theresa - not only did I forget how much I disliked her, I forgot she existed! Does anyone know why Laurel was so hellbent against Mandi coming into Cutthroat? I know they would end up on different points of a CT triangle later on, but when Mandi went off with Chet (also forgot about his dumb ass! Mandi as well!), Laurel was going hard about what a whore Mandi was. I've always had a thing for CT, and I'm glad he was able to redeem himself, but honestly, he never should have been allowed back, and they NEVER should have had his redemption arc depend on Adam. It was great storytelling, and it all worked out in the end, but as much as I love CT, he was Adam's abuser, and MTV had no right to put him in that situation. That said, it was pretty rich to hear Kenny and Evan talk about what a scumbag CT was. Like, HELLO, until he rapes someone with a toothbrush, you can shut it. Speaking of, it was really weird seeing them one last time knowing what they had done. And I know how this is going to sound, but I'm gonna go there anyway. I think Kenny was the lesser of two enormous evils. I think Kenny is a misogynistic douchebag who doesn't see women has having inherent value, especially if they aren't sexually appealing to him. So I think he saw no regard for Tanya and what he did to her. It was just another dumb prank in his book, perhaps turned up because Tanya "deserves" a worse "prank." Now Evan? There's something about him that just says to me that he ENJOYED it, like I think he got off on it and was secretly very excited to have a "sanctioned" opportunity to do something like this. That said, this is based on absolutely nothing. And don't think I view things they way I described how I think Kenny views them. I don't see this as just an overblown prank - I think it was a sexual assault, period, hard stop. Getting to see Banana Backpack in all it's glory again was awesome. And I will have to say, Johnny actually took a humiliating defeat with surprising grace and good humor. And wow, the years have been kind to him. He is a far better looking man today than he was ten years ago. I enjoyed Exes I too. I never liked Diem, which I feel bad about saying, but I think it would be disingenuous to pretend otherwise. I didn't like her, but I certainly was sad she died. I never thought she was a bad person, but I think she was overly invested in her Good Girl image, and I do think she let CT down when his brother died and yet still played the victim with him. But it did make me sad to see her, and know she ended up dying so young. I know this is true of anyone, but it just made me wonder if she had know she would die so early, would she have made the same choices? Again, I know you can live to 97 and look back and wish you made different choices, but it just made me super sad to see her and CT together. Sad, sad, sad. Still stuck on like episode four of Battle of the Seasons II. 3 Link to comment
