    Apparently Kim and Colleen weren’t allowed to speak German? That’s absolute fucking bullshit. This show is getting harder and harder to justify watching.

    Episode Six Stuff:
    Thoughts:
    Spoiler: show
    I didn't recognize on Ridiculousness' panel. I don't know why that surprises me, I'm 47 years old.
    I forgot Aneesa was Jewish.
    Laurel catches feelings a lot on these shows.
    They are still showing the last teams digging that are way behind, maybe we see a big comeback.
    Nurys with a really weird confessional look.
    Nany still seems to have a lot of insecurities which I was hoping she outgrew.
    Oh, we haven't had a "Who is Faysal cuddling with?" update in a couple of weeks.
    Faysal really hasn't played any real role in the season other than Chief Manwhore.
    8x8x16 CMU weigh 32 pounds each, generally, although the webs are varying in thickness I see.
    Good strategy by Jordan here.
    Laurel doesn't seem to have the best arm. Not terrible, but it's not going to beat Jordan's form.
    I feel like hitting the last target will be tough as the goalie does not have to move.
    Didn't notice cleavage this week.

    Challenge 38: Ride or Dies

    Felt like Laurel was blatantly playing everything up for the cameras tbh lol. Fuck it. I like what Jay and Michele are doing. Maximum chaos, I hope they win again.

    Been off the grid since GoW released + being away from home a few days after I finished that but oh boy those last two weeks of this show. Jay and Michele, like... you can explain most of the picks they made individually, but as a group of 4, what a mess. I've kind of questioned if the plan was to play for future seasons, thus staying away from certain teams, but the past two episodes at least threw that away.

    As competitors, they're great, but every time they're there, I usually reach some point fairly early on when I'm like "I've had enough of Laurel and Jordan". Yeah, others need to *also* go, but I think I've reached a point where I don't count "pettiness" as a personality trait, at least not when it's 1 of 1 or 1 of 2. Too many people have just become 1-note here and maybe that's just because their permaspot on casts is established. I don't know. As obnoxious as he 98% of the time, at least Bananas doesn't forget that this is an actual tv show, ya know?

    But now we get to this week and Nelson, lmao. Dude was doing fine and then throws it away, and for what? I don't even get it. These consecutive weeks, you may as well just underline and circle them, and they're why (I'm speculating) that all these people are going to crash and burn around mid-season. Look at the picks that Bananas made back in week 2(?). There was a deliberate plan, not just some nebulous "reasons" for each team. That sort of seemed to be the case early in this episode and then... nope! "We want to get a strong team out." Proceeds to directly throw in a team that has done nothing so far, with them ending up against a team that has done even less.

    And Devin, ugh. Nobody likes a micromanager, dude. Maybe he was just on a good one that night or something, but when you're grilling your alliance-mate who had the power to throw you in two weeks in a row, just chill out.

    So in summary, the vets suck, but the new castmates are too stupid to get rid of them. I'm already over the pity pow-wows that they have each week when the nominees go up. It's the same thing every time.

    Oh, and I don't understand that main challenge at all this week. Were they told they'd be DQd if they got it wrong? Because why else would those teams run back to check for 2 pieces? I'm thinking of that one challenge from All Stars(?) where Kailah just spammed "Check" every 5 seconds on some math thing. Even if that's the case, feels like a miss on Devin's part not saying "We're not going to beat them in a footrace, may as well try a 50-50 guess".

    Good episode, lots of drama, but not lots of scoring.

    Thoughts:
    Spoiler: show
    AmBer with her monthly "I'm still on this show" appearance.
    Chauncey, too.
    Oh shit, they're going home, aren't they?
    Oh they're going to win the Challenge, maybe. We'll see.
    Devin with the low key dig at Nelson's vocabulary - "Needy-Greedy"
    Eric Church? That's an unusual music choice for MTV.
    Nurys with the cleavage lead.
    This could take a lot of trips back and forth if they only get three seconds each time.
    Is Nelson going to win two dailies in one season?
    "The best thing that ever happened to me this season" - Nelson, philosopher
    Devin does seem to be running this game pretty well, more than Johnny, even.
    I predict AmBer and Chauncey win. Veronica is not the best at anything physical these days.
    No helmets this time. How do they decide when helmets are needed and when they are not?
    "Veronica is so small compared to AmBer…" Well, she's so short compared to Amber. Her big ass is not an asset here.
    Surprised D&V caught up.
    Then again, if this went on for hours, I guess Stephen Hawking and Lou Gehrig could have caught up.
    I would have thought Veronica would have figured it out by now, she's got at puzzles.

    Well, this was the first episode that I found myself just straight up fast-forwarding through, not just the commercials. 60 minute episodes please.

    I liked the part when Devin asked Aneesa "So what's the deal with you guys?" because like everyone else, he doesn't see a connection between that pair of teammates. Then tack on a Jay confessional out of nowhere about Jordan winning and throwing them in directly. I wonder what'll happen?

    "There's a big divide in the house and the other side keeps winning." Guess it's time for a challenge that Jordan will be great at and you can do nothing, Aneesa. lmao @ O/H and M/J being the first two while the Clarks, Bananas, and Jordan all went late. Convenient! One half of that challenge was actually good, but it's a terrible challenge overall. That part when they were acting like Devin had a shot when he was just trundling across the cars? Come on.

    Amber and that hugging stuff is super annoying, so is her getting butthurt about someone not wanting it in that moment.

    Obviously they brought this on themselves to some degree by not pushing the advantage when they or their allies had power for a month, but losing those two is going to suck. And I don't just mean it for my team. I have little hope for the back half of the season. Weekly reminder that Kenny Clark is a person in this cast.

    They laid on that Nelson stuff this week thicker than "Faysal means decision maker" episode. While I do feel that he would *try* to do right by Nelson here, I just feel like there's a limit and I'd be worried about him being pulled by the other vets. Besides that stuff that connects through Kaycee, there's some girl that apparently is Faysal's teammate who supposedly is close with Bananas. That's putting a lot of faith in that guy, and if there were one situation where he might be forgiving about not being picked, this was the one.

    lol @ that elimination and the screaming. Whatever, man.

    Spoiler: show

    Amber and Michele talking Nelson will get what is getting to him transposed over him lying in
    bed with a shit-eating grin is some A+ foreshadowing if that is what it is.
    Nurys practicing swimming while combined with previous statement makes me think very much foreshadowing.
    Bananas' 40th birthday being celebrated in the Challenge is the most Bananas thing ever.
    Cool looking challenge.
    Aneesa with early cleavage lead.
    Nurys also with great cleavage.
    Moriah now with cleavage lead.
    Aren't Aneesa and Jordan 100% guaranteed to put Jay & Michele in there? Why are they dragging this out?
    Didn't Fessy fuck you over two seasons ago? And this girl is your girl? That doesn't make sense.
    I wonder if the only reason they have to wear helmets some times is befcause of the cameras on the helmets.
    I really don't like how much the audience can affect these challenges.

    Yeah, if there's not a lot of drama or other shenanigans, 90 minutes is a lot, particularly as the cast dwindles. It turns into huge chunks of the episode being devoted to a challenge that is the same heat repeated over and over. If there's not head-to-head drama on that kind of thing, it's really hard to keep my interest. I didn't fast forward, but I certainly tuned out for a while.

    Haven’t seen this weeks episode but we just watched last weeks and I’m falling into the camp that this shit is rigged.

    Every fucking time someone has a position of power to start really going after vets or previous champs they fuck it up.

    One of the most calculating people (Devin) throws his plan away to go after bananas and Nany to go after Amber??? I don’t buy it. It’s a work.

    Her first season, they'd at least shoehorn her in by giving her the confessional explaining the rules right after TJ explained them. She's just doing nothing this time, so no need to even try to fit her in really. Josh is probably sitting at home thinking he should have been her partner. At least then she'd have constant fires to put out.

    As for Headspace's point, did Jordan beat Jay in that challenge? Sure, he may have, but we don't know. They put all those effects on there to obfuscate things and they can just pick whoever they want to win in some of these time trials. The bottom line is that the series has generally stacked the deck in some ways with casting, and between that and bizarre changes of direction I've got to wonder how much confessional manipulation may be in play here.

    I feel like she is doing more than Kenny is, but on par with Chauncey, who is apparently still on the show. I don't dislike Kaycee at all, she's one of the Challengers I think we be most fun to hang out with personally, but I have no idea why she is continually cast on the show. She's not interesting enough for TV.

    3/3 on crying on my team, some shouting and a killed it? Almost not feeling bad about losing 2 ppl last week!

    Don't like this twist and I'm dreading the incoming "I can't believe I have to compete against my girlfriend!" spam to get that Kaycee/Nany screentime. Speaking of them, I don't know what made me laugh more, Nany asking "am I antisocial?" or Kaycee's "I literally forget that my brother is here." That 2nd one is a ridiculous intentionally unintentional burn. The other one? What is Nany even doing this season? Or Kaycee? Do they even hang around each other? Do they talk at all? How is there actually no content of any sort?

    Faysal actually crying over not winning a final the episode that they give a mini-final. Come on, editors. Was that scene even from this episode's time frame? Nelson's confessional about loving power and responsibility? That was probably filmed 3 weeks before that challenge, unless he'd already forgotten (possible) about that ordeal at the knife pull.

    If there were any doubts that Faysal just brought a potential ringer that he kinda knows, her line about not knowing if he's the person she thought he was confirmed it. Kind of makes me appreciate pairs like Kim/Colleen more. I don't know how thin their relationship is, but they at least seemed like a fun team with semblance of cohesion/chemistry.

    I'm not going to look up early RW/RR or Vet/Rookie teams from the Gauntlet era, but this team split sure feels like it'd fit in with them.

    Spoiler: show
    Olivia good cleavage lead.
    Faysal crying is … unexpected.
    Moriah also with nice cleavage. Lots of early strong cleavage today. Hmmmm.
    Olivia with a second dress with some interesting side and three quarter panel boob thing going on. She's back in the lead.
    Kaycee, I *also* forget that your brother is here. Sometimes, you too, actually.
    Kenny speaks on camera for the first time since the Obama administration, it fees like.
    Chauncey and Kenny with lines on the same episode. Which one of them is going home?
    "There should be no reason why we don't win" - Nurys. Girl, you just tempted some gods somewhere.
    Bananas, I think this was a terrible strategy.
    Have any of the kids born on Teen Mom gone on to be a teen mom on their own?
    Like Teen Mom: The Next Generation? Or maybe Twenty-Something Grandma?
    This sled thing is a rich get richer game, the teams in lead can slow down the teams at the end. Don't like it.
    Moriah impressing me here.
    This really is a mini-final, no joke there.
    Devin's inability to believe Faysal can do puzzles is funny, and Yes, he has a problem
    This is an interesting deliberation here, splitting up the teams. Hopefully Moriah doesn't fold.
    So no elimination this week, huh? Guess this is a reasonable substitute instead of some dumb cliffhanger.
    Teams seem pretty uneven, but I suppose we'll see.
    Mid-season trailer looks dope.
