The reveal with the wife was beautiful.

I was dissapointed they never had the friend turn on him during the entire show.

Was good to see Wanda back!

It was a little underwhelming the way they told him but I agree having his wife dress up as Lady Justice was a fun touch It really seemed like Chase didn't really know what to think. I couldn't tell if he was upset or happy when he kept covering his face.

I was a little underwhelmed about the reveal.

The reveal was very similar to how they did it in season 1. The real difference was in the reaction of the Schmo. MKG was very demonstrative and Chase was trying to hold in his emotions a bit more. I re watched the season 1 reveal right after watching this season's last night and was really surprised at how similar the script actually was.

I would have had the best friend be the deciding vote and have him vote for Lorenzo!

This episode should have been longer. It felt like they were cramming two episodes into one hour. (The first episode being the The Full Bounty, and the second being the aftermath.)

Also, right before the reveal, they really should have taken the level of absurdity to a whole new level, since there's little to lose at that point.

I felt so bad for him when he started to cry but happy he held it together. $100K will calm your nerves just a bit.

I can't imagine the roller coaster of emotions Chase went through in about a five-minute period. First, he thinks he's going to win the show. Then he thinks Jake is going to eliminate him. Then he loses to a player that was barely in the game at all and the $100k is lost. Then he finds out everyone is an actor and he feels like he's the butt of some huge joke. Then Jake explains that they did it all for Chase's benefit, and gives Chase $100k. Then Chase finds out his wife is there. What a ride that must have been.

I loved the Reveal and was so happy for Chase. He was a good Shmoe.

My recording cut off at the end, but just by a minute or two (I assume). On the whole, I enjoyed the season a lot. I wish we had seen more of the ventriloquist dummy - that was the funniest part. I kind of feel like they never pushed it as far over the top as they could have. They should have done the reveal by arranging something so outlandish he'd have no choice but to correctly conclude what was really happening and then just be ready with bells and confetti once he correctly announces his suspicion, or something like that.

I'd be curious to read his journal.

I wish they'd done more of an after show, and an interview with Chase a few days later once everything had settled down.

The producer is going to be on the next episode of RFF Radio's Reality TV podcast, and he'll likely have some cast members on the line as well. I know Rob and Trevor really want to get Chase in an interview, so if Chase is granting interviews, he may make an appearance there sometime soon.

I liked the reveal the first time, when it was MKG.



I still like Chase and still think it was a good season. But it was tough to watch Chase near tears until he realizes he actually wins the $100K...

The show is entertaining, but I'll probably skip talk of a lot of the shows. Even at 2x, there's quite a bit of rambling!

Exactly what I was thinking. Taking all of that into account, it was a great reveal. Chase almost had me tearing up at the end there.

I did like them bringing his wife there. That was very, very touching.

Semi-tangent, on the podcast it's hilarious how they are talking about how this must be getting really high ratings, etc.. (and IIRC, we know it's not since they took away the reruns of the episodes that were happening before.)

Also, they're acting like it's way better than the previous seasons. I think it's still very entertaining, but not as good. CLOSE, but not as good.

One of the biggest problems is with reality tv today it is not really possible to spoof it. There is so much ridiculous stuff on now that trying to make stuff up to be outrageous is nearly impossible. Look how absurd a mainstream show like The Bachelor is.
