    Sucks Jordan lost in that type of elimination. He’s prob my fav guy in(was) the house.. love his no back down mentality in this game.

    Nelson May be dumb as hell but he’s strong.. don’t blame Wes or bananas for not going down there..

    They missed their chance to send Cory in against Nelson. Bear is pretty harmless in the overall scheme of the game and it would have basically ended the game for which ever one of Cory/Nelson cam back to the house. Though it was funny to hear Wes acknowledge how terrible Cory is at eliminations

    I was thinking the same. Based on who is left, I would’ve tried to save Bear to go up against if I were Wes/Bananas

    So who are the favorites now that Jordan is gone? Does one of Bananas/Wes have enough in the tank to get it done? Every other guy seems to have obvious flaws, but who knows. I don’t have a good feel at all about who the favorite should be moving forward.

    I think Bananas has as good a shot as anyone, but think Wes would need a perfect setup of challenges/tribunal/eliminations etc.

    Bananas has to be the favorite at this point, he has the most rounded skills of anyone left so will be less likely to have one of those clearly disadvantaged elimination rounds like just happened with Jordan. I don't think Wes has the gas left to win a final, he didn't look great in the last won he ran. At some point they're going to double cross each other before the final so don't think they both make it.

    Also think it's going to be a random final. We've seen 3 top competitors go out trying to get a skull. Eventually there's going to be a late random match up of mediocre players like Josh/Kyle or Nany/Melissa that basically puts one of them into the final.

    If fessy is even decent at puzzles and has the stamina to not blow up on a final, he's going to be a problem for any guy on the show.

    Yea been impressed with him. Seems to lay low and not have a big presence, which is challenge rookie 101. Only knock on him is he seems to have grouped up with Cory/Nelson, who arent the brightest; but yesterday's episode was a huge boost for them.

    I don’t see Fessy going into an elimination again, nobody will want to risk a physical elimination vs him. It will be interesting to see when the game ends and who all is left without a skull.

    Fighting over who gets to face Josh for a Red Skull is probably how the Bananas/Wes alliance falls apart.

    Did I miss something in a previous episode? Kailah is saying she’s in a relationship with Bear but what about the guy at home??? Did she break up with him? Is he back in LV unaware that she’s in another relationship?

    I think she just acknowledged Bear as her official challenge boyfriend and gave up any pretense of caring about the guy back home.

    Yeah ain't a lot of people in this game beating Nelson in some mano y mano type stuff like that. Nelson still a massive corny clown. I don't get his need to run his mouth, self destruct and be an ass all unnecessarily.

    Maybe Fessy and Brogan would have the mass to play the game but that about it.

    My thoughts: All the things that make Jordan insufferable in literally any other setting made him pretty close to likeable at the end of the game. I admire that kind of competitiveness and refusal to quit. Lotta respect for him. I feel like I was robbed of enjoying him losing see him get beat in something that wasn't so stacked against him.

    I don't know what to make of Bear. On other challenges and other episodes he's seems fairly competent and surprisingly competitive. This one though he seems like he just gave up and let Nelson passively maul him. Maybe he worked so hard to put his head so deep inside of Kailah ass that he forgot he playing a game. Not a good showing for him but he'll be missed.

    Personally am a big fan of Jordan, was tough watching him have to go against Fessy in that challenge. Guy gives it his all and has no fear. He had no problem going up against Fessy when every other guy would have shit their pants.

    they're focusing too much on Wes dismissing Josh. It's almost inevitable that he beats Wes in an elimination at this point. Wes probably throws himself in as well.

    Jordan is great on this show. I dislike him, but he's entertaining. Great heel.

    Wes/Bananas having power in a double elimination was great. Played out perfected. What was Johnny doing to cheat? Was he standing in the right spot and could see the colors around the foam room?

    Josh is a fucking moron. I'd love to see him vs Wes in Hall Brawl and Josh get destroyed, maybe dislocate a shoulder and go home in tears. Lamo at him crying about "no one told me anything"....bitch ain't no one likes you.

    Lossing bear sucks. He's a great character and perfect for reality tv, but he's now 0-2 in eliminations and a weak showing in both of them. There plenty of constant dead weight on the woman's side, hopefully he can be entertaining on the guys side.

    Kyle is terrible
    Fessy is a beast. No idea why they wanted to vote him in unless just b/c he's a rookie.
    Nelson is tough, just a moron.

    Cory, Kyle, Josh....maybe Swaggy seem like the obvious weak competitors left that guys will need to target to get a skull.

    Also, it'll be interesting to see ppl who have Skulls, start throwing in other ppl with Skulls into eliminations. At some point ppl will start blocking new people from getting a skull. There's not point in growing those numbers if they can avoid it

    Yep...after the first time he came out of the foam room, he noticed he could see the lights on the side of it without going in. Pretty amazing that Wes still won.

    really wish they would have given that more coverage.

    This was a dumb challenge. 1st, how do they have it set up where you can see it around the room. really stupid. Second, the players should have been isolated so they couldn't team up.

    I think it was Corey who had the best strategy, but he fucked it up. Memorize the last 1/3 of colors then let everyone else get the first 10 for you. Not sure how he messed it up, but that was the best solo strategy...outside Bananas cheating.

    Pretty remarkable that Wes and Maggie had the fastest times and they didn't work together

    If I'm ranking the guys left....

    1. Bananas
    2. Fessy/Wes
    3. Rogan

    Gap

    4. Swaggy/Nelson
    5. Kyle/Cory

    Gap

    2343. Josh

    I think that's all of them. Feels like Bananas should capitalize on this as there is no Jordan, CT, Zack, etc. He's probably better than Wes, and the rest of the guys left aren't on his level. He should find a way to win this, because he's not getting that many more chances, especially as newer, younger guys come in.

    I know I've posted a lot about being a fan of Jordan, but it's so refreshing to see someone not give a shit, go into eliminations, and win challenges. If you take a drink every time someone says "so and so plays a scared game" you can't make it through the first half hour of a show without passing out. He doesn't mess with any of that bullshit. He made a final his first season, got eliminated on his 2nd season, then won 3 straight games. He beat Zack in a sledge hammer elimination (I know Zack sucked at that one) and Josh in a tug of war challenge with 1 fucking hand. Haha, both those guys outweigh him by 50+ lbs. Add in that he's probably no more than 175 lbs, has a tremendous physical disadvantage in every daily challenge/elimination/final and is still probably the favorite to win every show each season is insane. Big props to him.

    That's right. I thought Bear nominated Wes and the house voted him in, but last season the loser could pick their opponent or something.

    Bear picked Wes then beat him.

    I think that was the origination of Josh thinking he was Wes’ rival. Early last season he, Laurel, and someone else made the tribunal and that was the whole thing of Laurel being asleep and hearing Wes scheme then saying they should vote him in

    Remember when Josh should have never even got on the show but only was brought back because the guy got hurt?

    Between lucking into a Big Brother win and the dude getting hurt allowing him to be on 3 seasons instead of leaving as soon as he arrived, he may be the luckiest and most useless reality show contestant ever.

    He also won a couple eliminations his first season with Davonne. I remember them beating LeeRoy’s team and I think Jenna/Gus.

    Bear is a good competitor but you could tell from the get go that his head wasn’t in it. He looked completely disinterested and was defeated before it even started. Not sure why he was that way but it was obvious

    Kailah has been pretty bad to her b/f, but you shouldn't call her a slut. That wasn't cool, but life goes on.

    And although I do not agree with his sentiment, I liked how he phrased it, calling her "the foulest woman here."

    Awesome episode.

    Big fan of Jordan. He will go down as one of the best and the dude basically has one hand. Incredible. I don’t think he’s ever lost a final.

    Bananas and Wes should’ve thrown in Cory, it made the most sense. Bear was harmless.

    Fessy is really good, no way he gets thrown in again unless the house comes together to use him to get rid of Bananas/Wes. If he’s decent at a puzzle and doesn’t cramp like Zach did he will be hard to be in a final.
