    Really just a meh episode. Kyle/Aneesa making the easy/dumb move is just so predictable for them.

    Darrell should have changed partners, that was the worst move he made.

    I'm pretty disappointed everyone is getting a shot at a skull.

    I guess the new challenge season could be interesting from a drama standpoint I just have a hard time seeing all these 40-50yo people being entertaining.

    Aneesa preventing chaos from happening is very on brand.

    Also, I fucking hate that everyone gave Cory his wish to go into elimination after his shitty competition performance.

    I understand having fears, and I'm not trying to attack having them, but the idea of asking everyone to throw you in because you feel it's your time, after laying an egg, is whack.

    After these past two skull seasons where the cast is giving everyone a chance, the producers need to come up with another cutthroat themed season.

    Them all knowing each other so well and being friends outside of the show really stops them from being ruthless which really sucks.

    Also they developed a show culture where they all take everything so personally within the show, instead of just chalking up being cut throat as part of the game. I wish It was a little more like Survivor where most of contestants just tip their cap to being blindsided and don’t get too upset.

    Being close outside the show use to provide good drama outside of the actual challenges. But now they’re all older, have kids. More aware of how they come off on camera ect. Plus they significantly cut back on drinking and drug use, so there’s not even that much fun drama. Just Josh being a baby.

    God I’m such a dork over analyzing this show lol

    that’s why the show needs bananas and wes

    also, what is the point of making this big deal over “we have a limited number of skulls you better come down and get one” when everyone is going to get a chance no matter how long you wait. stupid

    I liked Johnny’s idea of having a bunch of different teams of friends going against each other. Could do it similar to the battle of the seasons with a bunch of teams of 5-6 friends that end up having to vote each other in. Then could add wrinkles like in War of the Worlds 2 where people can choose to leave a team if they win an elimination.

    Exactly. It’s for a million dollars! Haha no one should have to explain themselves about making a move to get them closer to that prize. People talk about “playing the game” 350 times on the show (looking at you, Kam), and then immediately get butthurt when people make moves that get the individual closer to the ultimate pay day.

    Could also use some fresh meat that aren’t from other Bunim/Murray shows. Just a new generation of kids that has 5-8 people that become regulars.

    Yeah they need more people like Bear.

    They also need to incentivize the daily challenges more. Winners receive an actual reward ($, food, whatever), losers automatically go in the challenge.

    The skull idea is good they just haven't executed it right.

    Yep. I want a lot more endurance in these. I liked an eating challenge. Little breadcrumbs that simulate what a Final would present.

    Skulls were supposed to stop people from skating to the final but has pretty much just had everyone going in against the biggest layups. It's really robbed us of those big matchups that occur as the season progresses. Agree with everyone saying make coming last in the daily automatically put you in.

    I agree with last place goes in. A cool twist might be that the house still does a vote for the other people/person going into elimination and the first place winner of the daily challenge can either go with the house vote or put their own choosing in.

    Need to make it where you are penalized for throwing a challenge as well

    Everyone but 2 teams punting on that eating challenge was a joke

    You will always have alliances but this just coasting because you were on big brother and are protected by numbers sucks

    Dropping by to say Fessy sucks. I’m not sure what was more offensive, him disrespecting CT or his “80s” outfit.

    Fessy sucks. Did he start watching 1 season ago? He apparently thinks he’s the only athlete that’s ever been on the Challenge?

    Fessy still thinks he almost made it to the NFL

    this season has been so close so many times to getting really spicy. But has fallen short thus far. Need something big to shake things up.

    I feel a little bad for her, but I mean it’s a physical challenge. There’s at least a base level of fitness you should have and she’s in worse shape every season. It looked like it took her 10 mins to run a half mile with multiple stops. If the elimination was “do 1 pull-up and 1 situp”, she wouldn’t finish it.

    I would have had more sympathy for Aneesa if she said we really wanted to "take part in" or "experience" a Final

    but she is flat out lying saying she wanted to "Run" TJ's Final. No chance in hell of her running anything.

    Have to laugh at Fessy telling CT the Challenge was easier back then when pretty much everyone left this year are perennial losers. This was one of the weakest casts in years and arguably the worst female one they've had since the RW/RR days.

    I was cracking up when he said that. Fessy wouldn’t have survived with the original cast and when they would let them fight and be more physical.

    Fessy is so soft. He would not have lasted in the steroid era of the Challenge. I want him to lose almost as badly as I want Leroy to win.

    Yeah even the ct/fessy argument seemed pretty forced. They need to increase the alcohol consumption 10x. Still hoping we get some major shakeup

    "I came here so a woman of color would win and that's all that's left, so I accomplished my goal".

    Aneesa...they were all women of color when you were there too....guessing the goal was to win it all at that point.

    Big Brother people have made the show boring. I'm not sure I like any of them. Need more messy folks and a little bit more partying/drama in the house. I feel like they are leaning a bit more into a "true game" vs letting the personalities shine away from the game.

    Been watching some old seasons recently and they are so much better then the current product. Go back to letting them drink every night. It leads to more drama and more comedy.

    A lot of it is them treating this like a serious competition + everyone being very aware of the cameras and not wanting a bad edit. They're too experienced and savvy

    IDK how you fix that. Even new people know to be aware of that shit

    Let them drink more and then they make bad decisions. I do agree the $1mm is the bigger prize than being paid to get on the show, so ppl are super serious now.

    Having people like Aneesa and Big T that can’t run a half mile but want to run the final is inexcusable. They literally should make that a qualifying part of even being casted considering the amount of people they can pick from these days.
