I used to think the emotions were a bit much. But, in 2015 I had a scheduled surgery that had me in the hospital for (only) 4 days. There were huge snowstorms in Boston (I was actually in the hospital during the Pats Superbowl win over the Seahawks--the nurses turned off the game because it kept screwing with my blood pressure ) so it was very hard for my family to get into the city regularly. Plus I was eating badly (abdomen surgery), sleeping badly and being woken up at all hours (teaching hospital), and my roommates went from fine to terrible (noisy, TV on all the time, etc.) I thought I was handling it fine but when they told me I could go home I was surprisingly emotional when I called my wife to let her know she should come get me. And, that was just 4 days and no one was scheming behind my back (well, maybe that last roommate...)
So, I think I get it, a bit. I don't think it's fake. Or maybe I'm just a wuss .
Still, though, I do fast forward through the loved ones parts. I'm just not that into it.
I always enjoy the biannual judgement of how people are weak because of how they display emotion.
Is there any way that we got "Fairplayed" and that isn't Christian's girlfriend? Heck...was that even Mike's boyfriend? Christian's interaction was like it was the first time he had met her.
Christian being socially awkward? You're right, that's so out of character.
Seemed more to me like she didn't want to be on TV, but she came anyways for him. And Christian knew it so he was trying to make her most comfortable by perhaps trying to not be overly affectionate on air.
I'm fine with the loved ones visits and can understand the players getting emotional, but this really seemed so dragged out with Jeff having extended social analysis on all of them. Some of them took multiple 30 sec skips to get to the next person.
It can be interesting to see who the loved one is that comes and the initial reaction, but after that for me it is ZZZZZzzzz.
Who would forget Rupert's bear hug, leg wrap, sucky face with his wife on his first time around. Any thing they said after that I could not remember.
I am very excited to see what the jury is going to do. So far, I don't think we have a bitter jury, everyone has walked out with the attitude, "Well, I got got, great job guys! " But, I am sad to see Gabby go, she was one of my favorites, along with Christian. But, she was starting to realize that she (probably) could not win against Christian. But, I think she made her move a little too early.
I wondered if that was more due to CBS' editing, knowing that this show airs early in the evening and lots of people watch with their families, and maybe they didn't want to highlight affection and kissing between gay partners.
"Worth playin' for?"
I was very surprised at Alison's mom. I expected her to be tall and thin like Alison, but instead she was just the opposite. Makes you wonder if Alison was adopted or if her dad is extremely tall.
The remaining players would be stupid to let Christian get to the end, but based on the editing of the season so far, I will be surprised if he's not in the finals.
CBS doesn't edit the show..Castaway Television Productions does.
Her husband was in a war zone for months while she was pregnant and alone several thousand miles away. I think that is far more stressful than any game.
OK, but the point still remains. The final edit has to be approved by CBS and they may have a standing instruction not to show stuff like that during the first hour of prime time.
Only 26 months total but not actually any while pregnant. But it still sucked.
