    Loved the episode. Big fan of some drunken drama with Nany. Got some psycho Zach. Jenna shocking the world. Great content all around.

    Jenna has always performed relatively well in eliminations, Tori probably should have gone after a weaker girl. With that said, if she is a top competitor that is a challenge she has to win as there were no gimmicks involved.

    Our Michigan posters are not in here having a tantrum after Jordan tried to help Tori.

    Don't get the Dee hate

    Dee’s attitude sucks for what she’s actually done. She outswam Kaleigh last season (wow). She got then did nothing in a final other than solve one puzzle that got her past Tori.

    If she and Rogan aren’t on another season, the show would be better off.

    Haha for real? Getting the answers to put 5 shows in chronological order when you have no idea is EXACTLY the same as shouting instruction and strategy on a physically grinding challenge that has way less impact on victory.

    People shout strategy all the time. People don’t shout direct puzzle answers. It amazes me that people can’t see the difference, or just choose not to.

    Is there some weird connection between Michigan and Tori/Jordan?

    Dee is awful. They need to block puzzles from the other contestants.

    Wes literally said she's become to over confident and that he created a monster.

    Nice mental gymnastics in equating yelling strategy to giving trivia answers. The bigger issue with that elimination was the pure luck involved with getting the pieces. Ashley had to smash what looked like double the pots Dee did to even get to the puzzle.

    Def was pure luck. Kind of a shitty elimination, I didn't like it. Eliminations should be equal skill/strength head to head. Not who can find 5 pieces in 25 random pots first

    Zack is still an ass.
    Cant believe I haven't noticed this before but Nany was really giving off Freddie Mercury vibes when she was crying.
    Nelson really is the worst, like ever.

    Finally caught up

    Sucks for jay but he was right, they kept throwing him in when eventually if anybody wants to run a final they need to go in and stop hiding. Tbh I was very surprised bananas was so against going in early when the vote was between him and jay, the longer he waits the harder the competition will be

    agreed with everything already said ITT about Josh. You could tell he wanted to cry after wes owned him. And idk why he would have done it but I didn’t buy his over the top freak out over dropping the puzzle piece, I think he did it so tori wouldn’t win

    Nelson, while fucked up the rant he went on afterwards, was right about tori just thinking she’d get checked out Jenna and it was an easy red skull. Glad it backfired on her

    I’m still baffled by the choicee to put fessy, one of the fastest guys, in the car reading the math equations and instead have fat ass aneesa doing the math and then run portion of that one challenge.

    You would have thought this red skull stuff would have completely changed everybodies strategy but it seems like only a couple have in Jenny, CT and tori

    and CT losing in an upset certainly isn’t going to help people like josh, Kyle, nany, aneesa etc to grow a pair and go into an elimination

    yeah he’s playing the smart game as a rookie and has just hung back but unlike jay he’s performed well in challenges but has kept vets away from targeting him for an elimination

    Swaggy C is a dark horse

    How quick he is with numbers in his mind and puzzles has to put fear in everybodies mind

    And he said he’s 6’4 so if he has just average athletic ability he should be tough to beat in a final

    Lol I know this dude. Well not him but his wife is from my hometown. We went to the same temple. Weird.

    Heard Wes on a podcast a few weeks ago saying a bunch of people were staying at one of his rentals. He got Neyamiah a job at one of his start ups, and the others were kind of just stuck in KC and they’re all living there

    yes the one up until that nobody could figure out because they kept fucking up

    as we’ve seen in turbos final basic math equations could cost you in a final(Theo)

    Didn't half the teams complete the bomb squad? That was on the one with the relay?

    I fell like his GF is going to cost him. She won one challenge, but can't tell if her game matches her bark.

    I think 2-3 did but nobody finished faster than his team because he basically had the math problem done within seconds

    and even had slow ass Josh running in his group

    Not a big fan of swaggy c.. maybe it’s bc of his gf and the way she is. I’d like to see what he can do in an elimination..

    I’m looking forward to a Kyle/Nelson rumble. Kyle has been to quiet since his first season

    but on the flip side that could be what is protecting both right now because they are 2 votes that could swing things

    I'm looking forward to the time when TJ is just like, "well that's that, to all those who have a red skull, you may now enter the final. The rest of you can get out." I feel like people are assuming that they are going to continue to whittle down the numbers as in previous seasons, but it isn't necessary now with the red skull aspect. It'll serve the pussies right for not trying to compete for a skull.

    I think Swaggy C does not add a lot except the talk about his basketball career and height.

    Bayleigh I think can be legit (she looks decently athletic), but thats bc there is a lack of superior girl competitors when the Aneesa of the worlds keep getting invited.

    Johnny and Wes in tribunal for a double guys elimination is too perfect.

    I really want to know what Nelson would get on the Wonderlic test, no way it’s higher than single digits.

    And Big T looks like the new Casey where she’s a terrible competitor, but is able to stick around because she’s fun and everyone likes her.

    Wow, kind of puts into perspective how good Jordan is. Dude has won 3 of 6 finals with 1 hand. That’s insane. Terrible match up tonight for him but I came out of that thinking how good he really has been with such a disadvantage over other guys throughout the years.

    Bad matchup for Jordan for sure, but I’m 99% sure Fessy beats everybody in the house in that game any way, and even a 2 handed Jordan. Just a perfect game for him

    Fun episode even tho both eliminations were anticlimactic. Absolute perfect way for Bananas/Wes to throw Jordan into.

    Melissa looked great at the bar. I enjoyed her calling Nelson a pussy multiple times too.

    And holy shit at Jordan still going after an obvious AC joint separation. You could see the step-off deformity (classic sign of that injury) as he was running off after they were done. That takes some fuckin stones to go grab the bar again against a guy that you know is going to rip it out of your hands and has you by at least 75 lbs. I don’t think many guys on the show would go back.

    I was a *bit* surprised neither Bananas or Wes decided to go after Nelson, but I'm sure they figure with the amount of dumb left in the house, there's plenty of easier chances in puzzle/strategy/endurance challenges

    But we're going to end up with a Wes vs Bananas elimination instead. It's absolutely coming.
