I'm compelled to agree. Too much, too quick ... too early.

The only question is whether someone on the production and or NBC was in on it or did Spencer and Heidi do this on their own.

I keep thinking back to when Spencer was on teh phone with the NBC exec in the first or second episode. Toward the apparent end of the call he said "thank you for the opportunity". I have to wonder if that was right after the guy laid into him and told him to suck it up and they just edited that out, as that is what I expect an exec to say if any talent called him directly from any set to whine about the conditions after they agreed to a contract, much less some complete wannabe.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Good question, but it seemed to me that it was Spencer and Heidi doing their own thing.

They didn't want to be there, so they faked it.
If it weren't for the breach of contract, they never would have come back.

I could be wrong though:)

Aren't there any mental or intellectual challenges that are equal for both sexes?

I'm just hoping they are now gone for good. And good riddence to them. Patti has impressed me so far, and I was definitely NOT expecting to even like her!

Do any of you that are still watching this show have any updates for us that don’t watch anymore?
Are they all covered in bug bites?
Has any one died of starvation?

No updates, besides.....

Janice is the most annoying person in the world and they all hate her.

Yes, some are covered in bug bites, but they have been given a lotion for the bites:lol:

Yes, it will, Precious, won't it? It will get the hose!
Now it places the lotion in the basket.

Highlights of the night?

Girls win first food challenge
Girls win first immunity
Everyone hates Janice
Janice keeps saying "poor, poor pitiful me .. I won't eat now"
Janice steals granola bar (on camera) and then lies about it
If the cast could .. Janice would be tossed in river and abandoned
Holly Montag joins the cast and seems to be a much better person than Heidi
Also seems that Holly doesn't really like Spencer which doesn't really come as a shock.

Interestingly, these folks are bonding in much the same way folks from Survivor do despite the additional amenities they do have.

She peed in the middle of their camp while everyone was sleeping, and then asked who peed in the camp. :lol:

There were two things I could have predicted about the "hanging" immunity chalenge: (1) a male would win it (true), and (2) Torrie would be the last of the women to drop (also true). Men have the upper-body strength to deal with hanging by your arms that women don't, and Torri, because of her wrestling background, is/was better developed in her arms - slam dunk, no brainer. Up to that point, all challenges have favored the men, both physically and psychologically.

The women (finally) won the tree surgery challenge and enjoyed hot dogs with chips and stuff. A challenge equal for all!! What a concept!

Next came the luxury challenge where the men (John/Stephen) and the women (Holly/Janice) competed to saw a log, uncover a math problem, solve the problem and unlock a combination lock with the answer. Both sides struggled with the answer, but eventually the women won. They won some athletic devices (?) and granola bars. The men did not take the loss very graciously.

Janice urinated next to her bunk while all (but the camera) were asleep and feigned ignorance; she then proceeded to steal and consume one of the four energy bars intended for the women's group and again feigned innocence. The camera did not lie in either event ... guilty as charged! Also caught by the camera, Janice spitting on a plate she was detailed to wash.

We were compelled to watch another political break courtesy of Patti RE: hubby. NBC is really getting brazen.

Holly is behaving a whole lot better than her sibling ever did.

All but Janice participated in a fireside chat about life-changing experiences. There were enough tears to drown out where Janice pee'd.

For his leadership roles, Lou was awarded a chance to speak to a loved one and told to select two others to do the same ... he chose Daniel (wife is expecting soon) and Patti (yep, sob story took).

Off they all went into the jungle ... fade ... queue promo.

Unrelated 1: Still no shelters visible for anyone. The camp appears to be protected by some kind of canopy that remains unseen by the viewing public. All camera shots avoid it, but it's the only way to explain them not getting drenched unless they've been outside of the main camp area.

Unrelated 2: Daniel took another puff on screen.

Do you happen to recall the movie, "The Truman Show"?? This whole thing could be taking place on a sound stage at the Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach.

Yes, I remember ... and I'm trying not to think of that. :sure:

Actually, someone here - although not with specificity - mentioned a scenario reminiscent of that thought.

But still, NBC wouldn't josh us in such a way ... would they? :confused::rolleyes::confused:
