Too Hot To Handle | Ep 5 & 6 Recap | Haley Strong, Mike & Angela Bloom

"Hello everyone and welcome back to the too hot to handle wrap up. I'm your host person Kes- and I have a very very fun panel for you guys today so first of all I'm going to bring in. She's the better version of me. Funnier smarter incredible. Haley Strong Haley. How're you doing first of all? How dare you none of? That's true second of all. I just may leave this podcast halfway through with very little explanation just because I'm not showing any growth whatsoever. I mean same. Honestly next up we have the beautiful wonderful Angelo Bloom. Angela how are you doing? Hey doing well yes I also may leave but not because I choose to but because I am rude okay perfect and I figured that we would have to round out the coverage of this show with someone who used to be a manhor. So what is the podcast? Mike Bloom I thought you were GonNa Bring me on for my my masculinity as honed in diva the heart warrior Guru. I rust soared through a poster and everything and anticipation station for this podcast. I'm GonNa need the footage of that. Mike Mooney the receipt and Angela. I can't believe you wasted your time in that way. How dare you? It's foreign team. We've been wasting our time doing much worse than not wasted our time. We have no time. What is time I don't know does o'clock start with a twelve zero one? We can't tell it's hard to say it's practically impossible okay. So before we jump into these two episodes thought it would be fun to get everybody's thoughts on the season so far the people they like and don't like Haley. Do you have any burning thoughts in the first four episodes? I'm having a great time watching the show. I didn't think I would. I don't know why I love trash television. Perfect it basically takes everything I love about love island in just like condenses it so I don't have to watch forty five episodes who are like. I think I might Mary Kells I love him. He's from the girl side are we haven't seen a lot from her. And maybe that's why I like her but I really love Nicole and I'm a movie so she's your favorite because she's been so absent works and I love I really love chloe so the Brits do it for me the Brits and the Irish do it for me. Sorry Irish Danny Ireland's not in the UK. Oh my goodness Mike can't believe you exposed yourself like that they are Anglo. I would say angles but that's or stops pretty well lump them in my goodness while. I talked about who I hate yet. Oh who do you hate? What really hated Matt? When I came in then came in and I hate it anymore. I I almost forgot about how much I hated that so hated by so much. Yeah Yeah and he was so glad that I couldn't bring myself to hate her because she just didn't you were interesting. Is there a little bit of like acrimony there because she has not only the same name as you but the exact same I love? I love seeing my name. Spelled correctly represented because it happened so so infrequently even in my own birthday cards for my family members that I mean. That's fair Mike. Is there anyone who like released it out to you so far or any specific plot point that you're dying to address the Anglos as Haley said? They've got it going on now. I live close. Well clear reminds me a lot of Ashley from the challenge. Just a British version of like someone who is very quickly but also acknowledges the fact that they're completely trashy I mean we're going to get into these two episodes like she's just throwing money out of the pot by kissing guys to be like. I want to test things out. I want to see doesn't realize what churches on I also. I personally like Matthew because of the the young coach Wade Vibes. I mean he was bleeding coach. Wade all the way until he ended up leaving the house. Which is very much like the Margaret pro. Tried the honor and integrity of it. All I'm trying to think about I mean. Bryce was just ridiculous cartoon. Yeah prices like a total cartoon. I didn't really hate him but no you didn't hate him either. I don't think you're the thing about this show is that it's sort of like the way that I've taken a lot of. Mtv shows which is like if you divest any rooting interest in these people. That's probably the best way to enjoy it because everyone's going to do at least one thing to. Piss you off and it's GonNa make you feel bad about supporting them in the first place. I'm really excited about the show. Because I feel like it is like almost a a referendum on all this stuff love about this type of reality TV of listen we know we love watching everybody hookup and have all this flagrant wild unprotected sex but now we're going to charge you money to do so and I mean we found out the price for sex which is pretty darn steep. So I don't know exactly what they were expecting of these people how much they were expected to earn coming out of this season but I do love it as sort of like a meadow way to look at all these shows that have existed basically since the beginning of time and now they're sort of being turned on Italian for the purpose of quote unquote like self growth You know I think for me. I just don't I if people are boring than that. Those are the ones I don't like mostly have Irish accent right unless save an Irish accent. And I'm like rooting for her more than more than like her. Yeah Nicole has just like such a beautiful accent and also like the most gorgeous curly hair Omega Chen and she straightens it all the time I thought there were two different out the same thing. I'm like okay there. Are there to random women here because one has straight hair and one has curly hair and they all sort of sound the same. I was like no. They're the same also say I've been I've been met on Kells as of late. Maybe it's because the French drama has died down but like I think as I'm sorry I have to interview. You mean the Accountant. Yes counting kills. Let me define him by his made up job description. I think just like he's a little like Hoity toity from me a little bit judgmental of some of the stuff that these people are doing it. I judged each other. Does he deserved? Yes yes he does he. I mean I don't know there's this one moment in the in the first episode five and he's like all right Harry like I'm fine with you now because you had the first leg and you lost and I had the second leg in one when like even the announcer made clear like no. She broke up with you. That's not winning the leg. Also just like. Let's not refer to them as legs. Solomon Splitter. Don't know the other thing too is so after three or four. I was feeling Super Pro Kells and then I had a conversation with the Great Brian Scali and he was like. Yeah that Alpha stuff at the start just really like turn me out. And then I remember that Kells referred to himself as an Alpha and I was like Oh gross so I'm a little bit soured on him compared to two time by that's fine. I don't think any of these people deserve to judge each other. One thing one thing to talk about right off the top so a lot a lot of people ask like Oh my God. What was that sixteen thousand dollars? What is this and right? I think I figured out how they charge you on this show. Oh I was GONNA say if you're GONNA play mad libs and try to fill in the not what I was talking about. I if I had been like a smarter person or loved myself even less than I already do. I would have done that but I love myself too much for that today. So here's here's what I'm thinking I think so. You just get charged for like the worst thing that you do or the thing. That's the most money that makes sense is value is and they're not going to multiple charges because like if they charge for every kiss they would be out of money by now like during that night in the suite or whatever they call it unless they're just like no kiss in having sex like hookers. I don't think that's happening again. I don't think that's the case. Because obviously we see in the second episode when Harry and Francesca Go. There like making out immediately and so. I'm pretty sure that that's just what they do. So I think that so. What is sixteen thousand dollars is my question? Assuming Orel Yeah that may be in a for charging like by. I don't know the bases. You know like if home base was twenty k. I could see sixteen K being third base. Yeah around it to sixteen fifteen. Lana maybe like ten K. Would be like the heavy petting said in the first episode. Exactly and so. I think that that's kind of how they do it. Because I saw a lot of people were really confused about what could possibly have added up to sixteen thousand out of that. I think that after the math people really wanted like okay. We have the itemized receipts. We need to like figure out what each item was worth. And I I don't want to do that and so I just. I'm pretty sure that they don't really WanNa do that either. So I think they just charged for like the most that someone does so now. I'm like Sharana. Rhonda should have just had tax. What did you make of that? 'cause like they they have this moment we have the Hashtag Sharana which bryce please stop trying to make hashtags happen. It's very clearly only came with Sharona. So he could suggest Louis which might cost sixty thousand dollars by just mentioning the word blowy a Come out of and they're like Oh we didn't have sex and then they find out like they basically did everything but have sex over so proud of you guys. Rhonda was telling them if they didn't have. That's really great. I'm so proud of you. That's amazing that you held out and she'll say well not really. Yeah and they also show like Rhonda Sharon before they actually leave what. I'm calling the highway because of my Love Island bias and Sean is like wow screw money. We owe lawn money and Rhonda's like you know what I'm not even thinking about the money like I just wanted to feels right with you and this moment and Sharon does. I have to point out the things that he does better traumatizing. Because when I noticed them any under some he calls his genitalia. Look her my downtown. He's somebody that like. I definitely if you ask me who I like. Least liked in the in the cast. I would pick him like he comes across to me is like the super laying the game. You know his whole now. I'm going to get in touch with my feelings and get to know Rhonda like when she liked it was. It's such a childish behavior and then they get the bracelets and that's when he decides to open up like okay. I'm sure Ron I'm just confused. Was like what size is he trying to put into our minds here. Because I feel like if you're comparing a woodpecker to an air freshener can they different? There's a different size there and I also don't feel like you WanNa to compare it to a living creature let alone a cartoon one so my suspicion is he just like maybe has named his his penis woody. Woodpecker it's like the action not the like like the fact that it's like and I'm upset and he yeah. I'm also looking at the optimal bird that you want to name it after. Let's move on so Haley. How how did you feel about sure on? Rhonda's get away. I Oh God I get it but like I would be pissed if I were to ever thought they lost so much money honestly like I don't know I I could easily last that long without any touching of any sort for my part of one hundred K. So it'd be Matt somebody else could Ono. I mean Haley. You know. This is a special crab of people when not one but two guys have the exact same thought in separate places that they're going to have sex with the wall if they don't see it's hard for me to wrap my head around something like that. Gosh I honestly you know what my thing is. Also one hundred K's split between what is now like twelve people is at this point. It's might as well just go. What's the point? You guys aren't leaving with much money anyway. You had a great free trip to Mexico. All I think that's close attitude for sure. She's like I think at this. I'd rather just like meats and have a better chance of leaving with the guy than leaving money. I don't even think she wants to leave the Guy. I think she wants to like. Get with some with the Giza Giza. We also got a lot of questions from people wanting us to explain the difference with regards to the term Geezer in the UK versus here. Haley do you want to give us some some British slang knowledge? I wish I could but I'm not sure about the Geezer one. Yeah I think for you know like how the word gangster here is considered in some circles to mean like. Oh Yeah. He's a straight up Gangsta. That's who I WANNA get with like. It's a it's a slang term geezer meant to be like. Yeah like you know. It's like a like a sneaky guy like he's like he's cool. He's like Tomcat. You know Canary defined it. Someone someone affable but morally dubious a wide boy. Which is I mean. That's that's Sharon to a T. Voi- yeah I don't know about that part but I do think it's like always a Geezer and it's like he's like cool and a bit of a player live full awful boy as you would say yes a bit of a bit of a Giza straight up. Yeah So just to clarify for non-british listeners. Cloyd does not want an old man. You're looking for the most like decrepit geriatric guide to hobble into the villa and then the the term banter comes up a lot. I think yes also comes up a lot. You know having having good bands and his chest quick witted conversation between two people not necessarily quick. What if you're Korean and Chloe by in theory like clever I would say like a quick way to? It's more so like the new get along with APPS. Speed of like a fifth grade field day of like little kids running. Where thank you say? It's okay yeah and I think it really comes to who you're talking to at that point as well he's Persia some people just might not have it with. Everyone is a a big aspect there? I will say though that conversation. I think the women's dressing room where chloe was talking about the different like she was just like I wanna a Geezer and me and so into have good bands and she just kept saying like Vance over and over again. I got confused. So the question's valid so then. The question is how much more confused for the people in the room at the time of day was. Francesca for example. Like is that why? Hey left did you just want to be rude and was like okay? I'll just pretend I know what she's saying. Yeah Haley didn't even actually you know leave because of a lack of growth she just. She couldn't grow shoes so confused all the time by all the different types of Flang she so so dumb I know and I do have to say up top that I stopped standing Haley. Yeah Yeah when I was listening I was like you're not going to be standing here in a minute I was. I was obsessed. I found her so entertaining. And then when she's like a I don't even care. I don't even care about anyone like all these people sock while I was like. Wow someone is sour that they just didn't connect with anyone and I was. I was over it and saw that I do have to publicly announce. I'm not Haley any longer. Yeah disavow well. That's the thing is that like I feel like snarky nece and reality TV. It's a super thin line. Where like it's fun to you. Know be a little shady toward your competitors. But you also as a contestant like we want to see you if not enjoying yourself at least like invested in And I think I think Haley had one side but not the other shed like the Courtney. Yates like Gosh. You've come to like make it entertaining when she's always eats clever land where the way. Haley was doing it. It was just like Oh. You're just a fun person to be around and I think that was clearer the next day after she left when all the guys were like oh you could just feel so here so like light and airy hit. Hawes it is. We'll endless bummer. I just feel like in the first few episodes. She just came across as like so dumb that it was actually kind of funny and discussion with. Francesca was kind of interesting. And then when she like kissing someone to let the people that you're mad at lose three grand that I can get behind but then just like I don't care about anybody I can't get behind knives just annoying so thankfully she's on. I forget if you talk with us in your last pot as do. We think that we're going to see anymore interrogation via Lana from here on out or do you think the fact that you could just easily ask her. What actually happened is a disincentivize people from actually lying about stuff. Well so the situation is like in both of the reveals in this episode. Told exactly who did it and gave like an itemized receipt. So I think that since I figured out they could just ask lawn is just going to tell them who you know right broke the rules and I'm wondering if they thought like Oh. Lana giving this itemized. Receipt will like make them not WanNa do these things like may give them a reason not to do these things or at least come up with better strategy on how to hide. I don't know but like it didn't work clearly. Harry and Francesca just like did not care. The cared about half of the episodes tended to care until they got into the actual room and then they were like. Oh wait is alone okay. But but I do feel like. In retrospect from like a per- a producing perspective. Maybe it was a bit like a produced a fun thing in the moment when you had inspector clue so Matthew. Yeah like asking. Lana what happened but I do. Think in retrospect having Lana be super specific kind of remove. Some of the drama. Like if Lana just has that part of the daily announcements like the rules have been broken like a pair has kissed there for three thousand dollars. We'll be removed from the pot. That's a lot more fun in terms of bringing breeding paranoia drama and conflict. Then these specific people did it because otherwise that's just like either public shame or to Angela's point they just don't care at that point exactly So moving past the the launch of over a second. We do have the moment where chloe realizes that she wants to break up with bryce though she's not going to do it for another full episode and then a lot of talk from everyone about how they're having weird dreams and waking up excited. Is This for David Toxin Asleep? No it's the next night. That was amazing. That was that was incredible. And I I WANNA see more sleep talking on my reality. Tv for what? Get Ethan to start recording when I sleep talking. Just send it to you. I said the same thing when I get really really tired. Or I'm like in a group. Like sleepover setting or whatever. I would talk like. I would definitely have very vivid conversations with the wall not other things with the wall Z. Definitely own my goodness. I should hope not. I don't really know how that would work. So I am kind of the same thing where I at least used to talk in my sleep at it. Used to always be a really big fight with my ex. Because I'd wake up and he'd be like Oh you were talking last night and I'd be like Oh what did I say? Oh my God he'd be like Oh I don't know and like why are you telling me it happened? If you don't know what's wrong with you and I promise I remember talking like I must be like partially away. You become like super paranoid. Act where you're like. Is that a camera in the corner. Back cameras in the wall or like bugs are falling from the ceiling. It's all very scary but I do it as well and there was one time. Oh yeah that was so funny. One time that I yelled. Just in the screamed. Reggie yelled the name. Reggie Reggie screened at the top of my fell off a cliff or something. I started talking to Wolverine. He said okay. We'll bring like it'll be like he would have like very funny. Conversations in asleep out is hilarious. The only one I know about that I said is when I was talking about all the different flavors of ice cream one night. Not The only thing that my acts ever remember just so. We're GONNA find in college who not to go too far off the tangent different in college. We all stayed up studying one night and he fell asleep and he started reciting. The preamble to the constitution was amazing. My God while this this psychological study because it's less this case about like what you dream about and more so what is so at the forefront of your mind that you like need to speak parenting bugs and cameras and cameras for me. It's meeting next man and for me ice cream so adds up trait that the dodgers was gonna make that they didn't make until about three years later Wait till you predict addicted. I was talking my sleep. Yeah Drop Peterson. Getting traded from the dodgers. Ethan was like is this actually real and then it ended up knocking real but he did eventually get traded. So yes. You've predicted it so your psychic in your sleep. That's incredible. Can you tell us what happens next? Yeah Matter Okay just kidding very easy. Br Bride from the ones having the FREAKY DREAMS. I yeah he brings up and then that's when he says the blowy thing and he l. I think this is why no this isn't what at some point. He calls his penis big guy and I wrote you wish next to it. I guess so. My Dad calls me like like that's like a father son thing. I think your apology that he used to okay. Well thank God now he calls me Woody Woodpecker so now it's grab all circle. Wow so one thing that I thought was really cute is when they leave the hideaway. Rhonda's wearing Sharana Shirt. And it's looks way better on her to be honest. Oh my God complete. Because it's also I it's leopard-print which I think is just a more of a naturally like Feminine Pattern and justice. Does she put the belt on it? Well look seamless baggy. Yeah she I'll Ted with her bathing suit underneath. It looks super Q. Leopard-print is of course neutral. In the year of twenty twenty. Everyone should know that. Obviously and then so this is where they do the like summer nights like where the telling the women. That's an easy comparison and do it both times and then shroud is telling the boys and this is where braces. Come Down Big Guy. Because he's saying he's getting a rouse trump Sharon describing. What happened in pretty sure that happening Greece to write? That was just sort of grinding on the Lakers. Probably show has a lot of problems. Yeah he probably had sex with the bleacher. Look the background. I love that I love that comparison of Sharon like Sharada nights like summer nights exactly and this is where I really like like everyone all like. Oh you are a good example to us even though they just did everything except for sex then we get the Lana ceremony where we get the itemized list which which was kissing inappropriate. Touching of bleep constant use of bleep bleep not to mention the BLEEP total loss of sixteen thousand and everyone is pretty livid laughing and all of a sudden she says it and they all just like fall like their face like can we talk about the bleeping choice though because they've said the F. Word before. Was this just a comic choice or do you think there was some sort of like standards and practices in volt from Netflix. So that they couldn't say actual genitalia terms. And then why would they like have Lana? They're like prove recorded voice. Say it you know so I feel like it was a comedy thing. Yeah I think it was. It was for jokes because a Lotta has really good bands. I mean listen. Matthew might have gone home. Lana at the end of the stick a her situation where like he wants to find the woman who voiced Lana and realize that that's his one true love that's traumatizing so Haley. How did you about your man kells being so upset about this bill? It's hilarious. I really do. I'm sorry I don't think it's funny funny about it and I mean it makes me laugh is face just as like so like he has like such a good pouty phase here. He reminds me of like a Sitcom Dad. Get up to so much trouble. Be Like God. These kids another seventeen thousand dollar bill. My goodness that's true. So at this point there were seventy eight thousand dollars blood between eleven people and Harry's like that's a lot of money I jog hairs like. That's his they just had to bring Harry back into the episode because Ham and for Chaska are about to kind of take over for the most part. Yeah employee complete turnaround with some kills involved for a little bit of like much. She's most showdown using lion analogies. Yeah there's like a private conversation of Harry venting to Sharon about Kells and then kells venting to bryce about Harry and basically I'm Kinda jungle and Harry's like I'm going to confront him and so they do have that confrontation and Kells is like. I'm not trying to sound condescending but we're not in the same lead I mean it is true. I would agree with that. They're definitely separately whether or not what is higher than the others. Can you know? They're banking like little league. Like one of these are like terror. Terrifically appealing men is just sorta like any port in his storm. At this point though this should be avoiding ports altogether apparently can mess and this is where Harry also calls him a cellphone Alpha which is really at least. Definitely not saying yeah. He's he's certainly not but he gets. He's very like Ed grow in these two episodes and so I think that's what he thinks. It means to be a leader and then we get. Francesca asking Rhonda for advice because now that Rhonda Insurance Unhappiness. She knows everything about love. You lied to us about also showed me how to bribe is far and away the smartest person in the house so idea is true except maybe David even then but I think it's a good call for has got to talk to Ronald because they think Rhonda actually did give her some pretty great advice and didn't train eater rush with anything so I appreciate it. Rhonda's sentiments here. Yeah it was really good that she told Francesca to not share her feelings. I that she can figure it out on her own. I really like how Fran was concerned that Harry would think she's a floozy. 'cause I definitely a term. We still use. Well it's like one hundred years since the twentieth. I can bring certain terms back. We can use floozy more time. Also aren't they all flutie's? Isn't this just a cat these? Can this be called floozy island? It doesn't really roll off the tongue. Quite so much by it. Hot to handle is a little. I don't know maybe it's because it's coming out and it came out a couple of months for love is blind but I cannot think of any person who has not confused. The names of these two shows at least once keeps calling. Listen to your heart. Love is blind. I couldn't remember the title of this show for a while I was like can you put on the. What is it? See if it was called floozy island it'd be ob. Taiwan also use island like if there's some copyright claims there that's true that is what about like no penance. GotTa go you're fired get out. Yeah Anyway we'll be continuing this podcast without Michael Ladies only that's girls night now. He won't leave. I'm sorry guys. No it's it's fine. I'm so this is one we get. Bryce and chloe have their conversation and ultimately their kiss. Where BRACES NERVOUS? Because chloe is too beautiful for him which is true and then chloe is like. You're not what I'm used to because you're proper classy honestly because he's affiliated with a boat. That's the only thing that emanates classing this in my opinion on maybe the fact that he drinks Moscow mules. I mean but I think they're all just drinking out of a copper. I think so at this point so I don't know if there are if every time we see them with a cop. It's actually a Moscow mule like. I'm pretty jealous. Yeah I would be impressed to that. They had that sort of patients to make a drink. It's a mixed drink. It's not just you know one thing quality podcasting over here yeah. I'm sorry guys I I don't know this is too hot to handle a week for me. Okay you're doing great. It's now it's fine. Thank you for the reassurance. So then they kiss and close like I don't know for. We have a spark which is the second time she said this but still is not going to act on it for a while we can make fun. Elway Monto about Bryce the DOOFUS. But I do feel Kinda bad that like. She told us before. She told him that we found out I and he probably has this like he's still shipping. Blowy at this point he just got a kiss and he does not realize that she does not return the favor yeah. He's very focused on how he hasn't exploded in so long. And she says her son. Do we have sparked. This is where we then get. Lawn is workshop which Mike Keyed up at the start of this with the warrior. Haley do you know what a heart warrior is a no nor do I want to the whole like? Is this really put the mud on themselves? I mean guys. I think this is at least seventy five percent guarantee. They found some guy at through central casting. They come up with a few weird activities. We're going to send you a bunch of guys and just keep them busy for like a few hours and have them do like semi like homoerotic activities and then have them do arts and crafts for a little while. I do not think a hardware. You're you're it's understandable. Haley hasn't heard of one so I don't think it's a thing. It can't be a thing unless it's like a Chris from big brother candidate like I made up this career. So it's the first thing. I think when you search for me. I'm googling heart warrior right now literally say I need not me if you you have to put in the guru because our warrior just comes up with like I think that's more like Guru Warrior on spotify. I think we've found him. No but I think if you put in Heart Warrior. It's like it's like people who've had like heart disease and asthma disease their survivors. Who's to say? That guy is not them. You know he's trying to do some cardiovascular activity to get the heart going. Yeah no it's not a yeah I know it is. It's certainly not a thing. So that's it is very much Chris from from be week.'. With from brain transformation they honestly should have got him for this to all of them would stop wanting sex so much. So yeah basically what I got from this cover themselves in mud and they all yell and then they write down things that are holding them back and then they destroy it. May I miss anything I mean? I love the fact that David starts off by being role we all have something in common for all from the plane of earth and from there like all right I think I I'm so in for where this is going because when you start to finding things by the plane in which we all exist just thinking forth the mentally the plane of Earth Yeah there. That's like they're all you know. Children of God or whatever and also I I loved everyone sort of interpretation of things. This was a big highlight of the circle. Right was doing arts and crafts and nobody was on the level of Joey with cake but I do like things like for example. Bryce being afraid of the future so he drew a clock. That may be missed numbers. I mean I think that if anyone should be afraid of the future it is certainly Bryce yes agreed. Because I don't think it's going to be kind to him. Yeah and so when they destroy the papers they do it with a spear and I just don't understand why they didn't rip it up the spirit. So here's the thing I via Google search. Just now I think that diva the heart warrior guru is meant to be diva who has like the heart of a warrior because Oh because there is a retreat on Dot Guru Camp Detox heart of a warrior retreat so they just missed a few words in between because like the spears to me. It's very tribal. Was Editing O intriguing wing. Which doesn't from a cultural perspective. Because they're like on an island rather in Mexico. Yeah but you know what this I mean. This is all trash. Turn on the farthest from the Bachelor in Paradise Commun- probably not now today borrowed wells. Are they into loom? Oh that would explain all the Moscow. Mules walls is just bored. Hilarious BS. So I think my favorite part of the of the Weird Lansing that they do all medieval times that I think diva yells like this objectified non truth like he does. This weird speech is using these weird dusk right out a doesn't mean anything. It's not braveheart. While they tried to make us believe that it was over all them and go to wash them at off in the ocean while the women homoerotic very very much so and this is when the women are all like super attracted to them. And I think it's it's like in the BBC pride and prejudice when Darcy like Moore's the water on himself. I think there's just like something that a woman can't resist about a man covered water. Do you think do you think there's anything to that? I think it's like have you ever seen the movie? This is very very deep hole but George of the jungle you I have. Vhs Of that in my apartment right now yes you know. When he's like running with the horses. I think it's like that you know it's like a man in nature. It just shows that he's like he's like. I don't know like drying mole. Yeah connected to the plane of Earth. He's sensitive he's a prime all. I'm GONNA use that forever connected to the plane of Earth. I think if you want to really drive anyone if you want to end the conversation quick. Just bring up the phrase plane of the Earth. And we'll have this conversation here on the plane of the Earth. It's a really important okay. So then we basically have the episode ending with the Francesca Harry conversation which they end it right in the middle which is very rude and even the voice overs abrupt can. Can we talk about this? Because it's tough between you talked about this in your first podcast person that you actually watch episode three. This series is should be I guess meant to be watched it like as a four hour movie or something right like eight episodes straight because there is no cut off point for any episode of the oldest bleed into each other. Where you're like okay. I guess I'm I'm suddenly halfway through episode four and we just got the lawn his announcement. I guess we just sorta made a cutoff point in the episode five. Yeah I think that's something really strange about. The show is just the wait time works in it. I don't know if they have braces clock or something but it just this is apparently four weeks worth of footage. But we just have these eight episodes. The pacing is weird. The way the episode end is weird and I do think it's just made so that people will just keep hitting that next episode button and then when athletes ask. Are you still there? You're like I'll tell you when I'm done and it's one of the season is done at so strange though because like I guess so. You assume they're they're they've been there for more than two weeks but it seems like I'm sweating. The Kenneth Been there for longer than a week if that right. Apparently they're more than halfway through their time. Yeah and that's what it feels like. But apparently they're like three weeks and at this point based on the timeframe we've been given by the previous few episodes so it's just really confusing weird by. That's the beauty of edited. Television is that we don't need to know really how how long everything takes whereas with a show like Love Island. You get five episodes a weekend. It's airing live and so you really get like the day to day of like people actually falling for each other in a way that you just can't in this accelerated timeline. But it's something that as Haley said is a lot easier to digest. Yeah there's less content to sort of wrap your head around. I also wonder how much less on the cutting room floor in that like. These people provide less entertaining television than initially expected with this premise. And a lot of it was just sort of like walking around sexually frustrated. And they're like we can cut around this. Maybe it was scheduled for like ten episodes and they said we can. We can work out. Eight quality episodes one. I respect that. Rather than making more. That would just be be worse. So basically with Harry. Francesca Francesca wants them to have a second chance and be back together but Harry is very in his feelings about all of the stuff that happened. With cals which. I think he should be. Because I don't think she would have broken up with cals of Kelsen slept with her in the shower. Actually a great point because I feel like maybe she would have anyway. She would have been like down with him and moved on. And that's why in the beginning of episode six like you see Harry. Really come to her with his own itemized bill. You know these are the things you need to do. Because she was coming to him for a second chance and it's because she's not she's coming with their tail between her legs of like just another guy and it. It didn't necessarily work and so she doesn't want to come across like she's settling for Harry but it kind of is on paper. Yeah and and that's when are we find out the Harry didn't WanNa look weak and he's having trouble forgiving her as a as a result and they end the episode and come back to Harry Sang. She needs to be committed to him. She's communicate with him and they're not going to break the rules. Which is very different from the Harry. Of Yeah he he does a complete change. That's why you were saying. I think maybe the first episode no the second episode. You did you. You hated Harry here saying you were like out on him done and I was just like but the hairy and episode six is not the Harry from the beginning. He's like all of a sudden like this sweet nice guy. I like twenty minutes. Yeah but you know what I mean like. It's like a completely different. Like her said is wild yes. I'm still not crazy about him like I feel can't Iran. I didn't like how he expressed it and he kind of come in like this is the way it's been a B and I'm making the rules and we're going to follow them and I just thought that was kind of annoying Haley. How do you feel about Harry? And Francesca. I'm happy that they can show some growth in that. They're both admitting that they're wrong. Where they kind of messed up. I didn't like that Harry was trying to be like well. You're the one messed up words. It's Harry she probably wouldn't have hooked up with. Cals if you didn't lie about like her losing curbing the one to kiss you so they lost the money or whatever. I don't know what they just probably shouldn't be together but I'm sure they're going to be. Yeah I'm looking very forward to finishing the series so that I can look up on social media and see what the relationship status are alike. 'cause I guess they're starting to post all of that. Yeah they have like a bunch of articles about the finale today that I had quickly X. Out of my browser so I don't get spoiled. Well Guess Yeah because you would think ordinarily like Oh. It's fine but now that we know that apparently people can leave the stop and go undone. See Yeah they say you know what I've grown enough. I'm leaving and I've made that decision. Lana did not make it for me and as soon as someone mentions Bro. You hear Bryce in the quarter Moby Guy. Stop it and that's when you also get David talking in his sleep about personal growth. But it's weird though because I think we've talked. We've all had our experiences with sleep talking but do any of us like gesticulate in our sleep. It looked like David was legitimately carrying on his half of the conversation including body language. Moving his arms and stuff. I imagine we do. Yeah I I've been told that like I've had situation lately when like when I was a kid. I used to sleep walking. Sleep talk a lot and like come downstairs. I would have a full conversation with my mom about like the plans for the next day and what was going to happen and then my mom would be waking me up the next morning. Like Kirsten like we gotta go like. We're supposed to be doing this and I'm like what are you talking about like we? We had a whole conversation last night. I was asleep who I was truly terrifying like at one point when we moved to a new house. My mom woke up to me just like looking down at her. History is to do that so we had to share a room and I was on the top bunk and one day I just one night. It just woke up and she was like hearing over at me. She was just like humming. It was so scary. I slept in my parents room for three nights. Yeah I would too was going to kill him. I'll is the time I slept eighth. She woke up to find completely asleep. And like I don't WanNa go obviously like it was not my fault but she was like. Okay Great. She saw me in the bath and she's like what are you doing and I was like. Oh well you told me to get in the back. Then she was like she was very worried for awhile after that. Also what is your mind telling you at that point like what's it trying to say like you. I don't care if you're a sleep wild. I mean Haley. Almost remaining demon tried to kill her. Totally are is so I candidate? Here's here's a question though. Can they do stuff and then afterwards say I was interesting? I think that's a little devious as a little Rabia. I do think that if they were going to try and pull that off they would have had a conversation about it which would then expose their plan and they wouldn't be able to get away with it. Yeah that's true. Yeah these people are not capable of subterfuge lead air freshener. That is Lana is listening. I still think that you know rob was right. When he said the best thing to do would be to. Just put a blanket over launa. She can't see them. They can't see her and then they can just do what they want right. But what about the other cameras while none of these people are about smart? Obviously that's true. That is true. Then we get a really funny scene of bryce talking to the other others. About how chloe wishes? He had banter that he doesn't you know this is the Banter Geezer conversation. And it's just like he doesn't really seem to know what it is. Yeah and it just. I was laughing so hard at this because I haven't said enough on this podcast braces. The worst yes correct. I realized surprise reminds me of someone and I realize it today. He reminds me of uncle. Joey from Full House. Shall we gladstone? That's an apt comparison. Wait so he got a puppet named Mr Woodchuck Chiron's thing is called Woody Woodpecker. I feel like you need to put away the red thread and your gas. That's your way to assess what he went. Pack her definitely. This is also the moment that really got me here. Everybody Matthew is wearing one of my least favorite pieces of clothing in the world. Which is that tank top. That's like super ripped down the sides. You cut the sleeves off a t shirt. I hate those because it doesn't actually cover any of your body whatsoever. That has no purpose has no purpose and also the collar looks like it's Cup t-shirt it just. It doesn't make any sense as a garment whatsoever. Okay so my counterpoint is that they're very comfortable for working out in and sometimes like as a woman in a gym. You're not allowed to just wear your sports bra. Because of the Patriarchy agreed there. Okay for women not for men. Yeah I like we don't really know so it's like it's okay that it has that giant gap like I have a star wars Yeah exactly I think for guys. It's more so just like an opportunity to just like be to basically have like a little tunic on you that doesn't cover up anything very very strange pet peeves when it comes to like fashion like he has a very adverse reaction to people with like heavy bangs like he was fashioned of hair. It's like another thing. It's aren't dial. Yeah he he gets very upset and he's upset right now well. I'm really glad that Mike. No me when I had a very heavy bang for all head has several rural years like it was like my outing for a long time. Well thank God. I'm not doing any time is there are there are few people in the world can pull it off. Megan Z. is someone who can absolutely pull it off. I think for the most part. It's your forehead. Should be out there for a reason. You know your eyebrows were you. Were blessed to have them. Let me see them so funny. You know the eyes are the windows of the soul and your eyebrows are the curtain so I can. I can when he tangents I. I'm really GONNA APOLOGIZE. Right now to anyone listening to this. I don't know if this is entertaining or not but we're trying really hard. Listen we're all we're all sleep talking right now. That's why this podcast is so nonsense. Yes exactly southern. This is when we find out. Haley has gone your ten minutes. Yeah they also as they had to rewind genius style and show us what actually the fully admit like we were so busy concentrating on Harry and Francesca. We didn't show you the person who cut booted from the show and the way that Haley Haley had mentioned she wanted to leave which is fine. Alana lights up and it's like Haley. You haven't grown like you're not. You're having a positive impact on. The group failed growing as a person failed. You've got an under the total mean girls or like so rude and Haley leaves with the the last one last iconic moment have Franchesca. You're all lame by videos. And then she walked straight to Coachella. Yeah Exactly Hey. It could have been stagecoach sounded. When did this film do you know they found about a year ago? Oh Wow okay is what I have. Grown leaned so maybe I mean she would have missed out on the tail end of spring break. But I'm sure in Florida. It's one big spring break beat smell. I mean. I'm sure she probably already has gone to the beach and as much as I'm not standing Haley anymore. I'm pretty worried about her. Well being in Florida right now. With how dumb. Chieh so yeah. Just pray for her safety. I guess but this is. This is still crazy. Like if you're comparing this to other love based reality shows the loveland like imagine on violent if somebody wasn't able to find their match and the show is just like well get out. You're doing a good enough job at this rally. The show on like on Love Island. They would at least wait until like recapping lane. And then it'd be like okay. Well you nobody likes you so you have to go away or they would like wait till somebody off on another show. You know so attractive. Lana just like straight upset by. John Agree thing. We knew that last episode that like she wouldn't mind going. I wonder maybe it was like a discussion with the producers of like I want to quit and they're like don't quit like we'll just sort of talk it up like it's an elimination and then of course matthew oriented all quitting later on the episode anyway. Yeah I don't know like. Do you think more people are going to get eliminated in the next two episodes or is it just GonNa be? I mean maybe nobody else is. Maybe after that that was kind of like a scare tactic. Like you guys try but in some effort or you're going to be like. Haley like a warning. Yeah that's yeah. That's that's the thing as well as its weirdly authoritarian unloaded US part. Like you need to follow these rules if you don't you're gonNA miss out at your chance at rent money. Well Yeah. And they can't live rent-free the resort anymore. So then we get the new arrivals coming in and these ones have already been told the rules so thankfully we don't have to see them learn because seeing the light go out of people's is like funny when it's Bryce but maybe not so much when it's like three new people that you know so it's an incredible entrance though like they're on the boat that's getting slowly closer. Just yeah they're embracing to be yeah. They might be on prices but they came in. It actually really reminded me Love Island. Us last year did twist with the love liner with three new people coming in and it reminded me of when the love liner arrived. I remember being very excited for that and so I was equally excited for these new lines so we got Libya and Corey. Who are both from the same town they buy together? I don't know but they're both. Is it like a same general region. I didn't look at. I look it up and then I didn't because I said it's 'cause like Essex is an area. Yeah it's a city. Yeah Yeah I didn't even hear it. They were in Portland smashed. Oh Yeah it's considered home of the Royal Navy and it's the most densely populated city. Oh maybe that's where they got the vote from know they got that from. Bryce obviously knew imagine voting the firm the UK to Mexico. That truly can't imagine anything more reality show where you can have curses from the UK to Mexico. I mean maybe I feel like a cruise is very different bio very long distance. This very long. So what percentage of our UK friends here on the show have actually applied for Love Island? I'm going with one hundred percent us you're not from the UK. And then. I was thinking about the listeners. I'm like I don't know if they're really type either one hundred percent of the UK contestants on this show applied to love island or the very least applied to too hot to handle thinking it was because of the description for sure. But Yeah so. Lydia comes then. She's like excited because she loves sags. Corey comes in and chloe immediately is like. Oh my God. Nobody tells the new guy that I'm not very I love her. She's pretty good at you. Call Him a sex God. I mean she's just like completely forgets about braces just like well this is not a sex cotton immediately embraces right there and she hasn't put together. I guess because she still hasn't broken up with him then we get Madison. Who is from California? And she says I'm here for one thing and one thing only the men so I think that these three are basically a production plant to make things more difficult for the main past accents. They have no one to follow the rules. I had a question and put this on my notes at this point angel and I had a bit of discussion but I would love some input from the two of you. So Francesca in particular. Looks like she has a Tan from. Like if you put on like scuba goggles like the top half of her face is much much lighter than the rest of his face was just so confused like is that a use of highlighter is it like she is it was it the way she and. I'm very thick conceal her. And it's a lot lighter than wrong. Turn it's used for like highlighting. Yes but it is not a highlight. Her it's normally people will conceal their under eye area using a slightly lighter color than the rest of their foundation. Because it does also have a highlighting affect and you. Francesco is definitely putting on her makeup by making a giant triangle under her eyes and blend do is using a shape tape one hundred percent yep hundred percent and then there's also like I'm sure that she has developed a bit of a hand being in Mexico this long and has a little bit too light compared to that plus sunglasses and that is why you bring your summer sealer on vacation with you gotta think I just truly. I'm so white that even F. I say you could definitely be part of the bloom family like I am so light that like I never use. I never have to use anything else. I HAVE ONE. I have like one thing. That is my dealer and make because it's all the same got my own shades. I've got my foundation. Nc Twenty a mike and Sealer and N W twenty. They blend together to make a neutral. And I never have to use anything darker even if I am Tan. 'cause I can just use the little bronze or hum because I this away foreigner. Yeah anyway so. I've been truly delighted by this Congress. Now you guys now a little bit more about how people do make up. While David has fallen for Lydia's is and I can imagine because she uses good conceal her. The Lydia actually does have really striking now is portrayed as being kind of like full of it but I looked at the TV and was like. Oh Yeah just nice. And I'm just so used to have ron commenting on is that I was like oh again. Lydia actually has striking is where she has. Yes pretty I think. Khloe has like fire in her eyes. Khloe has the nicest eyelash extensions 'cause they're like long and dramatic but not like too much like some people get them in. It's too much. I don't know anyways again more things that the listeners don't care about but I'm having fun. Yeah Yep same I what I really liked here is for in Chaska says and I quote. Hi Nice to meet you by the way. Don't try because I'll fucking kill you. That's a direct quote. I do stand that kind of behavior on these shows like wild attachment like shooter territorial. She's the Canadian on like asked crazy. 'cause you think like she'd be like she'd be like the. Nicole like the most like very down to Earth most polite person and it turns out. No no no. She faced e- exactly. So we find out. Lydia's type is tall with good teeth. So David chucks her boxes. Corey just wants to have fun. And he's self describes as the Giza and Madison doesn't even have a type. She wants to connect spiritually intellectually and Matt. Jesus is immediately fast and I love how they put on this like weird Klezmer music as like focuses on them like most spiritual. That's Matthews thing. Yeah it seemed like it was really GonNa work out until they have a conversation. Yeah and she cannot stand him and he immediately is unbearable. She's like yeah. Like you know if I like someone I wanna like. It's about fight or flight or like holding onto a branch. I don't even know actually put out because it sounds like literally said like I always like to say a five onto like well now. I understand what you're not that great with people day. Matthew if you're trying to start off conversations with that little idiom would not let her car and she would start and he'd be like in bub-bubba and she was like they need also be like what I really like about this is everyone listens to what I say. They really come to me to give advice. That's what I really like these people. Yeah he's unbearable but remember he's super deep. He thinks about everything all the time. So He's a lot to say. Jeez the like Jesus. Khloe is talking about how her and Corey have a lot in common including that neither of them are smart which she's a software icon. I love and what did you think of like the net flicks internal monologue machine Phil Perry like blind date to me like a little schlocky like gag. They put in there sort of live in the scene. I I just love everything about them. Haley how do you feel about? Clo- inquiry as a couple. I've I feel like they are a good match for each other. They seem to be on the same level of a lot of aspects of themselves. You're so diplomatic alien. Yeah that's true. You see both sides Alan. She's she gets it so then I got him. It is zoned out a little bit for a second and then frontier scan Harry. We're getting a private suites. I can't imagine anything important happened. Between those moments there was sort of like a weird thing. Where like like they. They did this thing a couple of times where like they kissed had with embrace to Lana. Didn't mention it so I guess like it's just commonplace now that we know what the penalty is being sort of skipped through. Lana reporting crimes to everybody else. In the same thing happened with Harry. And Francesca before they go to the sweet and make things much much worse. Yeah yeah this is another horrifying moment where Harry calls his own penis big dog. I didn't catch that one big dog. I wish I had. It is by my burden to bear that I will always notice what these people say about their genitalia. I think as a rule of thumb and maybe this is my own personal proclivities. Don't name it off of like a living creature. Don't name it. I think he would name it. And if you do name it don't tell anyone that you have named it. I remember when I was an RA WANNA make coworkers. I wasn't oh I really love that for US homemade one of my coworkers in like told us when we had like a truth or dare as a team he had named his. Genitalia the truth. Oh my God it's so funny because you can say like you can't handle the truth. The truth hurts. I'm upset. It's been something that's horrified me for the last. Oh that's rough. I never have been a year so now who can all be haunted like that too and hopefully none of my Indian away from you. Hopefully none of my co workers from that time are listening to know that I've exposed secret. Do you think he would like so? You WanNa play truth or dare but like always like waggling eyebrows. Every time the thing is is that was very surprising. Because it wasn't the type of guy that you would expect this from link really the place to make that kind of statement. We'll know it was like on your fellow. Ra what was all of the Ra's from our team so there is twelve note. Ten of US. We went on like a retreat to the mountains. And so we were all just like getting drunk in a cabin okay when this came out or or it may become out when he when we were driving home. The next day backed. Ra Retreats are where. I used to talk in my sleep. The most so you were exposing the truth now anyways. I regret telling everyone about this but no this has made my night is that and it was absolutely incredible. Mike I will send you a picture later of the guy so you can see. Just how like? How does the truth? Don't worry I wouldn't have access to that even if I wanted it which I do not Anyway so they decide they're not going to break. The rules are going to go into the private room when they're going to get to know each other and it's GonNa be fine sure at. Did you believe this Haley? Did you believe that they would be chased for the night? Oh my God not even for like half of a millisecond. I liked the minute they left. Nicole is getting ready for bed and she's like Yep they're definitely you GONNA do it. Yeah I know she was. She knew and they'd like the second third room. They're like on each other. Yeah like the like. He's still saying like nope. We're GONNA hold off here and then she's literally sitting on top of him is like no no no Doodoo. Nobody wasted tonight and then he says at one point fuck. Money grabs her ass and they go from there was to do. He's been waiting the whole time for this. It's what he wanted literally from day one so your day one the best part and then briefly for not during today and then briefly once he came to his senses who still wanted it. He was just being more aggressive about trying to. We're all as a person. Okay I like we get a scene. Where tells the accountants is reacting to them going into the room and he's so mad and it's because they're definitely going to blow money but also he's clearly very jealous and I kind of feel bad for him a little bit but he's going to be fine in this life he he'll have other women. Well I do wonder woman gets the Matthew stuff like he and Matthew seemed to be the most like similar minded when it came to handling the money stuff. Do you think there's a non zero chance that walks as well at some point being like okay? I'M NOT GONNA make any money from this because of stuff that I like says here like I'm paying for room that I didn't even used. There's certain point where he just packed up and decides to go so I think that the only way he would reach that point. Is that the bank zero dollars. Yeah that seems fair. I agree with that. Do you think they'd start? Like one. Axle Area Robin discussed that. And we thought like yeah. They're definitely GONNA end up owing money at the end of or do you think they get to zero dollars. Mister show just kicks them out with a lot of comes on and just like we can't afford you like you can't afford to stay here any more. Please leave immediately. Go Fly back home. Well I mean that could happen. I also maybe that's why they condensed all the time line so much because they're about turn out of money and then the show just ends. That'd be very funny hats. Yeah it's definitely possible. I do like the next morning when Francesca's like were poor now for sure because I think they also don't know how the money gets taken out so they spent all fifty thousand dollars but these people are so ridiculous because Harry and Frisco like yeah we definitely have sex and everyone's like cute they were like this is the same thing that what happened with Sharana before because they were all like. Oh Yeah. They're so cute together and then law says you lost sixteen thousand dollars in there like we hate them. They're the worst. How do they even think about doing that very mixed message? Yeah they have the moments where they're really excited about their friends having good relationships but then when they find the financial repercussions are like. Oh no I'm not a fan. You should have done that. Yeah it's like they`re. They put their hands on the stove and forget every time that the stove is hot. Despite being told repeatedly stop your burn your hand. Please stop doing that. And there's going to be charred remains of a finger by the end of the series. They're you okay. So then they do the they do this summer nights they show. Yeah okay. I don't know what else I suppose to save. You Win my factory. You best response to my beard burned finger metaphor I just. I don't even know like I feel like we're going to have to pay for therapy for the listeners. Now we can't afford that. So yeah that's what we need you like the summer nights thing again and David Asks Harry how long he lasted. Which is I like. Mike is Amazing. Men Do know so just traumatized. I didn't think that maybe a thing that young men do like teens. You know like why. I wonder if this was more so like an interest like I'm sure none of these people have gone more than I'll be conservative. Thirty six hours without sex at any point in time so they could probably be like. Oh I wonder what that experience is like. I'm genuinely interested Harry. You haven't had sex for about four days. How apparently three weeks? How long did you last four? Yeah I I mean I guess and that does it. Sure that's not a put these people then we've finally finally get KHLOE breaking up with with Rice and a few things too key here. He calls her baby girl which yeah he does do that. That was that was a rough one like my mom called me baby girl and I was like mom no and this is a man thing it to a a romantic interest. So I just don't don't say that guys and then she breaks up with him in the nicest way I wrote down exactly what she said so she says I just wanted to say. You're such gentlemen. I know you're a really nice guy but the thing is I don't normally go for skies. So maybe what I want and what I need are two different things and then she brings up that she is clicked with cory. She doesn't know if it's romantic or just physical. But she wants to explore it and bracing. This moment is like pretty cool but then immediately. Cut The confessional. Or He's like oh well she'll see. I was the better option because she really is. He really is the are slash. Nice guy like queued up earlier this week and so thankfully that's it didn't happen in a hammock again so I guess she's learning. I mean again braces just like in one ear and out the other with this guy. I've like okay. Yeah yes stop talking so I can. I can think about something else right now. This thing is not coming to an end anytime soon. I I haven't seen the last two episodes but I feel like Bryce is going to like. He's going to leave on clothes arm and he's going to bankrupt the group or die try like logistically. If you're clearly wouldn't you want to go for the guy who a isn't quite as weird and be lives in the country? You live in one hundred percent. Yeah it makes total sense or her and it seems like they have just much better chemistry like in the scenes with chloe and Corey. It really seems very electric between them. Live on vote or call her baby girl so she's she's made the right choice here. I think then another thing to just to say now. These episodes like the flow of how things happened was just so insane. I meant like before this started. I meant to divide my notes up just by storyline to just do it like that but I'm lazy and I didn't do that so it just kind of gives you the idea how hectic it is to to watch this show because it's wild because then we immediately go into the launch ceremony. Where she exposes a hair has had sex and not a cost. Twenty thousand dollars. Oh my God so in theory with that like charge cumulatively they would have only been able to have sex five times in the season if they want to get any money. We'll know if they had sex five times on the season they would have zero dollars. Left right I mean I guess I meant that like they have to have if they had sex five times. That's it and that's like how many times some of these people have sex in like a night so I can imagine that this is big big stakes. I know you in Robert. Talking about like was three kids too much I think we are definitively saying yes after that because this is just such a steep price this is very much guaranteed screen these people. Yeah I think looks never intended to pay them anything for sure I mean. One hundred thousand dollars is not that much to begin with for Netflix. So yeah I make sense to me. That's that's how I feel. The Harry says side. That's a steal compared to how much actually happened last night on also cute also sweet. What kind and tender man? He is the best. You're worth. Twenty thousand dollars honey. Oh my God and so this is when matthew gets up and says he's going to go home because he's grown a lot but also because he doesn't have any emotional connections so he left because nobody liked him and he calls himself a whole new matthew. He's not going to have sex without a connection and he's GonNa make you love him. Yeah I also love his resume of being the best way for a teacher to teach something. It's remove himself from the equation. Like stop putting yourself above these people. You're not their teacher. Also that's not good advice for a teacher. Humanity left the classrooms at Hugh. You guys figure it out. I've grown enough. Listen you can come find me at like brand new Mr Matthews in the cafeteria but for now the best way for me to remove myself from the classroom and have you tell you really GonNa Learn. I. I hate this Guy. So much yeah. He's rough for me. I can't really handle him. I wonder if got like some sort of like that. So Raven Flash that he felt the race someone else for him out there. Because I'd like to believe maybe this will still happen in the here and now he and Nora are perfect for each other norris who Yang how. Oh Yeah He's what twenty? Us thirty right that he's dean. H Norris said that's like a snack for her like a little snack. Hope she enjoys it then. I think she's GonNa pursue him but may fair. I don't think she shed thinks she deserves. She was entranced with him. Where's he from anyway? Like the desert assuming he lives in. Oh He's from Colorado. I don't I don't think that's where he lives. But I remember because I wrote in my notes on the first episode like Colorado Hippy. Or something when he walked in he came in looking so growth so then we end the episode with the first of all. You get Khloe talking to Nicole about how she wants to break the rules of the Corey. An Ecole encourages her. Like a good friend would and then we get the scene of Khloe Ankori are having a little banter and then they make out and the episode ends and we don't know how far they go and we won't. Until the last batch of episodes I mean they were out in public soy hope for everyone else. There's three K. Worth I mean with these people I who knows what they're gonNa do what they have. I mean if they if they can sort with multiple partners do they get paid like her person or is it one lump sum. I think it depends on this. If it's one session okay. So they could break this in a way right like could they be like okay like rural? Super Horny right if we just have one big. Were in the middle of the living room like we can only get charged twenty km max. It's GonNa be tough to wish that we need to explore this any further so that brings us to the end of our two episodes of episodes Ivan Sex Haley. Do you have any final thoughts on these? Two EPA. Really unders excited to see what happens next to Angela. What about you yeah no? I'm I'm also I'm intrigued.

I am doing well since Ali couldn't be here for yet at other week. We got the low Redford of alley. Yes. It's the all underscore podcasts. So. It was really funny. Cheb Scott put that in the episode side for this week. Great. I like big fan. Yes. Oh, great to have you on. I think we've done this a couple times of the past. It's always fun to get you out of the the Basler world and into the challenge world, which I think is a step down. I think it's definitely a step down in quality. Right. Let it might be a step like sideways at this since we're getting bachelor people on the challenge now. Anyway. Yeah. Yeah. Did you know? Okay. So my friend unleash sure had to remind me that chase for the bachelor was on this current season that we're podcasting vote right now you of which I forgot about. Yeah. I thought you know, when you mentioned someone was on season. I thought you were referring to a champs for bro. So I guess that kind of constant and I realize chase. Chase was a part of the season Manati had like a flying. And that was that was something that happened. What a world we live in right now chases in the challenge world, and we add a full episode that was basically a final without a consequences employees dying. So episode fourteen big one. So a lot happened this episode, but also nothing at all I knew you were concerned about what we were gonna even talk about like are. We just going to talk about the same challenge over and over and over again. No, not not really because I haven't been on it a very long time on this podcast. I'm going to share my thoughts and feelings about the challenges whole year, so two seasons. Let's do it. That's a lot of content. Will you remind me what last season? Okay. I was I was never ending. That was called that wasn't very thirty. Wasn't there? The last season. They all I blend together. Whatever the the end of the trilogy. That was the end of the Trojans vendettas right now. Yeah. No. It was in the middle thirty thirty K. And there was a vendetta as. Oh my God. I let me Google. This is this is this is how we do. What's going on here? Okay. Final reckoning Ronald rocketing. Okay. So what happened to that? Yeah. I thought that was a fun season. Except for the fact that it went on for five and a half years. You guys literally podcast from the fourth of July until your thanksgiving which is much later than mighty and hundred one that season, which he has now in the bragging about states because we got a glimpse at the end that he's now taking that as a win for him. Even though he walked away with nothing. So I won't give him that win because he did win. But he got the money. So because we we give Sarah the win in rivals. Whatever that was I would give Sarah that win. Saudi one, but Johnny took the money. I guess so would Sarah count those. I like that's like, I don't know if she would say like, oh, yeah. I one that I feel like she would. I don't know. I don't know how Sarah would phrase that season. If she says a winner, just like a horrible. Heartbreak, sarah. I know you're listening. Can you just let us know if you count that as curious, I guess, there's stats accounts. But in her mind, which is really what matters. I don't know if that's like a win a happy. Yes. But how many times do you people say like, I'm not in this for the money. Like, I just want the title and later Bill Tatum was Russell hands. I guess, and I honestly I kind of forgot one hundred one until he was like one last season. And now, I just need the money to go along with it. Like, how do I have to say hunter is probably one of my least favorite challenge contestants of all time. And I've watched a lot of these seasons pretty recently because of. The catalog available on MTV dot CA is pretty extensive. So I really hate on her. And I think that was a big point of conversation last time, I was on that opinion hasn't changed. I feel like my opinion on challenge contested really fluctuate from like. Season to season episode episode minute to minute even. I my feelings on hunter. I've never changed. They've always been hate. I would say, and I know hate the strong word, but I'm Haley strong, so good fit. I mean when someone has to pretend to be nice to be a psychopath, then. On the season. Yeah. That's not gonna warm people up Dilip. So that that kind of makes sense that the hate would stick through this season. Yeah. And so when I found out he was back on this season. I was not super happy about it. But it's been okay because he's gotten so little screen time that I've almost been able to forget, he's even here. Yeah. I would say of the of the guys he definitely of the people who've now made the final between west herb. Oh, and THEO it does feel like CONNER has the least developed story after because right after Ashley went home all that kind of drama seemingly kind of faded away. And then he had a little briefing when he was going to quit but other than that he has kind of faded into the background this season. And I've been fighting with that I've been really enjoying the season the challenge for me is something that because I don't often analyze it. It's something that I can really easily enjoy and I find that to be the case with a lot of MTV shows. It's just it's just something. I really enjoy watching. And that has been absolutely the case of season. And it's been extra. Great. Because it hasn't hasn't been drawn out as much as the last two seasons. It really feels. Fairly paste. And yes, the last couple of episodes. We've had some wonky finishing the zone where you know, we got a to be continued which is to be expected in the challenge. I feel like we haven't gotten as many of those as we've had recently. And also haven't gotten as many of those as we have on the bachelor, which is great. It's funny. You say that about your enjoyment of MTV because that's kind of where I'm at with the bachelor, and it's funny. The different dynamic where I could feel some of your resentment there embassador seasons where I'm like on me. It will just like sit back and enjoy it. Enjoy like the nonsense of it. But for someone who has like digging and analyze Seattle be frustrating worth the opposite with the challenge. So it is. That's an interesting dynamic within Tillis both shows that are meant that just kind of sit back and watch and enjoy when you have to dig in and analyze it does or shoot a look at the show differently. It's almost as if these shows weren't create created to have like a very critical eye, right? Right. Like that. Weird. I. Yet here we are still talking about our and congratulations. You guys are coming up on your five year anniversary pretty darn San off. I read while. I don't remember. Day. But I know it was June of twenty fourteen that was I was crazy five years with twelve season. Someone that probably was already the lawn and this. Yeah, it's been it's been a journey with Alli. How many episodes do you think you've recorded? It's a great question. I'm sure there's a way that someone could figure it out. I would love that. I would. So twelve seasons. Let's say to number about fifteen episodes. So quick math on that. I can try to do whatever that is. That's probably the rough estimate. She probably do this with. Hundred ninety so maybe I'm closing in on two hundred episodes. Wow, that's pretty crazy too. Yeah. I don't know you want to be. I mean, you're probably with paradise and. Because we're all your, rob. You got all those Bill baked in I got zero those. So I got none of those. This out as part is. He's not gonna listen to this day. Theriault? I think I think rob would enjoy the challenge more than anything. So he would if he just like had the time to watch it. Yeah. He feel like you. You could just to sit back and watch it. It's a very purely enjoyable show for the most part fi would like turn off your brain. And not think too deeply about it. It's not really like about it just all like junk in fights and like cool graphic of its and like cool challenges to it's like survivor. You get some of the cool challenges and the strategy and stuff, but no one's hooking up. Right. Not really a while. You do a long action movie like who doesn't like one of those mission impossible's thing and just run out with like, some strategy and stuff. I who how do you not enjoy yourself watching that? Yeah. The challenges are more intense bachelor pad. Exactly, exactly. So I guess we could touch on some of this stuff. So there's two things that happen. I would say this entire so the I was picking up from last week the elimination between von D And as being as Wilson mountain. I discuss who kinda were teeing up at D was a heavy favourite going in which would most likely mean that von would win. And sure enough that is what happened with Avon pulling off the win and tug of war over d. Yeah. I I kind of had a feeling Dave was going to win. I don't know why they stretched out. I don't think that was totally necessary. I get why they did it with the Noni episode because she's such a titan, and that challenge was such a bust. So you kind of want Noni on a little bit longer like I like her and I would enjoy seeing her back, but I don't think anyone was clamoring. Like, we need another episode with D And just one more please for the love of God. I love the way that Dave honest able to think her way through these challenges and my boyfriend Ethan was watching this episode with me, and you know, he watched Holly fails spectacularly, and then seeing how big Polly is and seeing west he goes next, even like, how is this guy even going to do it? And they said, well, you know, that's the joy of west is he's able to think all these challenges in a way that this new crop of guys. Just just don't have the ability to do whether because they're complete morons. And also, they don't have fifteen years of this under their belts. I think Dave van also has the ability to think about challenges before she's getting into them. And instead of just trying to muscle her way through this tug of war, which is kind of what he was doing. She thought about it. She thought about her personal strengths and say like, I know this is a long haul. I'm going to reserve my energy and do it. I can and then right at the end hopeful pool, and that was an effective strategy. You know, she she knew exactly she didn't try to do too much which a lot of people try to do in these types of situations where I think help is that this wasn't her first limitation. I think if this was her first of the season, she might have seen a little more like scatter brained like trying to do everything. At once with the fact that this is I think her third or fourth now for this season, then she's one with partners and with yourself. I think it gave her the competence do what she knows. She does. Well and focus on that rather than going out of her means, what's which may have caused her. Downfall is Dave the smartest. Player to come on in the last couple of seasons. Yeah. I it's a good question. I would think so at least she would she'd knows herself better than I would say most people as alter like strategic thinking and physical thing I think she knows what she can do and knows what she can't do. It doesn't try to force anything which is a great great to have. And maybe it's because he's a little bit older than some of these contestants. She is she's thirty one this weekend, actually. And so and because she's a mother I feel like she's had more time to grow up and mature and get to know ourselves. In a way about some of these people probably haven't had the chance to do. And I feel like I was in the camp of like, why are they bringing Dave on on the challenge to begin with like she never showed any real athleticism on her season of big, brother? Her strategy was to be debated. She was a confessional Queen. I she has remained to be that. But I've been super impressed with Dave ons performance in the last couple of seasons of the challenge. I thought she would be great, you know, maybe with confessionals, and like one liners and causing some mixing up with the drama, which is what she was more into an her first it, but now now that she's getting comfortable, and as we see like planes or a string. She's not become a physical force. But she's definitely not an easy out. And I don't think she'll ever be thought of as like a layup again coming into a season. So she she's right in the middle of the pack of depending upon a certain challenge in a certain situation that she could beat basically anyone depending on the situation. Yes, I'm I'm excited about her. And I'm excited about where he's going to go in her challenge. Career roy? Can we talk about poly? Sure. So going this the challenges sometimes over the top with their setup. And this was one of the clear instances where paulie and cars. Poland cars lot talking about how this is just been like the ultimate fess. He isn't for them. And it will be so story broke if they both go to the final against each other in a final, and maybe even finish the first and second go happily ever after win all the money and Bubba and you just with car already being clinched in the final. There's just had to be something that was going to happen. The Polly that makes sense. I didn't really pick that up to be honest with you. I think I was too busy thinking about how awful this was Matt sale. Kara gosh, she has the most roller coaster trajectory for me liking her for the seasons. Gosh, the last couple I've just him so out onto after being in on hurt for what's your favorite version of Kara? When her and laurel were friends, I think like rivals to I was rivals to Earl together. And then there is a bit. And then she won. And I thought that was cool. But like the whole Kyle thing is just been so messy and just not great for her. Or any of us. There's been no there's been no winners in the car. Paulie, Kyle love triangle that is. There is no one is at all. And I wonder if I would feel differently. If if Kyle wasn't in the picture like if I'd be fine with Pauline Kara being in this weird little relationship like everybody deserves somebody. And I think they seem perfect together. Just bite all the Danielle m stuff. But you know, we all have our ups and downs to some are a little more even and downy than others. I do wonder how the public would treat car. I'm Paula together. If there wasn't the Kyle thing that happened before it and looming over with all the time because yeah, I don't take a lot of my. I think she's something to be over the top with her like lovey dovey. And they rooting firm and challenges that, but whatever if that's how you are whatever. But I think without the cost. I don't think there would be as much of a backlash with Kara and paulie as a couple. Yes. And I agree with that. But it's hard for me to put any of that out of my memory when it comes to this season. At least we'll see next. See what happens there? Gosh, this was just a tough out for Polly. So for those who didn't watch the episode. The challenge was to run off a crate climb up a net onto another crate. And then swing onto a third crate grab a hoop jump off that crate climb up that second create again coulda thing on thing, which sounds easy in theory. But it looked very tough right off the bat. We find out it is super tough as paulie usually the order a lot of these things don't matter if they seem like the matter, but usually they don't, but I guess it really did matter because even though it was ran limited sermon. Paulie going I and he just could not finish the swinging part to get to the container. He failed twice. He finally got it on the third. And by that point is body was just been destroyed by falling in the water hard a couple of times. It's freezing cold, really hard. He said, his forums or shy. I think he said he fell on neck each time, which I can't imagine. That I fall when he was really close to this top of the net, and he just like h shit. Basically like it was like, ooh, how is how is he allowed to continue trying to climb after this. I was waiting for him. I don't think he would ever quit. But I was waiting for someone to just stop it. I thought after the second fall, I would go and check on the T wouldn't be okay. Because I mean the way he was talking like he can't feel his arms. I thought he would be pulled from the challenge. I didn't think you would ever clip. And I thought they would be pulled. I really also thought he was going to be bold. He didn't he didn't make it. He he had the toughest outing. Definitely it made me sad. And like as much as I'm not like the biggest Polly fan girl. I don't hate, paulie. And I was actually like shouting like go, paulie, come on. You can do this just like grab it. You can do this. How much she hates to like be defeated because you could see how much it means them to do. Well, and it's a way and a lot of people that go on the show for a variety of reasons, but you can tell for him. He actually does really care about winning. And I think also the money, but also like you said earlier about some people just want to win. I think actually truly just wants the win. And to see it come crushing down right at the edge of the the final is could Accu was clearly he's balling and his confessional. And I believe that this is just crushing for him. And he he was so close to the top. And with that ring. And it just God. I don't even know what happened. I don't like I don't know it just makes no sense. And it was tough. And I really thought that you know, after that performance with Polly that everyone was going to be having a really really tough time with it. Yeah. I think what I think west made a good point that it kind of allowed all the other guys to kind of relax knowing. That there was no time element to it. That all they really had to do was finish. And they be fine. I'd be super curious as everyone else would have done if the gone, I or Paula just completed it normally because it really takes so much of the pressure off. You don't have to rush and feel forced to do all this subject. He's going to take your time. Do what you need to do and finish it. And no, that's all you need to do just finished challenge. Do you think it would be beneficial for them ever to run like a blind challenge? And I don't mean like a challenge with blindfolds. I mean, you don't watch the other people go. Yeah. I think that would be super interesting, especially I think this was a challenge where they could have easily done it like there's not that many people, you know, there's only e people competing. So all you need to do is keep a few people off to the side. And I'll looking so I think that would have been super interesting, and I definitely think that is something they could easily do at some point. So who is next? So Wes west goes next, and he seemingly has no problem. I think they didn't say who won. But it seemed like he either him or honor probably had the best time that they both crossed each of their is the leads of the the challenge. So he he does super well. And e punches his stick into the final without a problem. So great job my Wes. And then we got ninja having to live up to ninja status is a lot of the pressure was on her from the other earn her ninja stripes, and she almost did it. She fell off the road. Yeah. She fell off the rope. This was like a different fall. Then like Pauly or some of the other ones that Clinton completed. She just almost like angled it wrong because she like got there with like plenty of distance and species angle, then and just like shot too low and hit the wall, Billy. I don't fully blame her for that. I think she just kind of like mixed up like the angles of it. But she was like she couldn't do. She just like messed up a little bit different. She was too amped up this challenge. I think she wasn't able to stop and think about what was going on and how she should jump on the rope, and etc. Etc. Etc. So I'm not going to remove the ninja status from her. Like, the does I think she's fighting keeping that that status. She's not not. So Matty going was maybe one of the highlights of the night because not anything that she did. But in one of the most random moments, maybe in history of the challenge as she's going back to try to do the swing one more time a seal just pops up out of the water and causes chaos. Amazing because first of all she just. Hits the shipping container with such vigor that I'm surprised we didn't get like a picture and picture of TJ like laughing because I know he loves you know, injuries. But then she's trying to climb up at a seal comes up and Edward Morris ass. What would you do if you saw a seal mid challenge, I figure I'd be like her. I think I would freak out because first of all what if I happened. I thought it was like a dolphin or something because I thought it was a fin popping up. I realized it was the seals head. So I would have started freaking out if like an animal just pop his head right out of the water and trying to do challenge. Now would freak me out. I get freaked out when a bird comes flying. Who's a seat didn't say that there's sharks in the like, I know he didn't say at this time. But for one of the other challenges, he definitely sat. This is the first time this is ever happened. I mean, I know they don't go super deep in the water where like some of these real live but fairly deep so they could fall from a decent height and not really hurt themselves. So they're all these years is kind of surprising it, no other like animals ever reared at that. At this point. I think I would have gotten completely distracted from the challenge in try to get the seal to come over at it. Got it showed a feed it. Maybe had the seal compete the challenge for you. That'd be kind of a fun twist tap out. Yeah. Mattie doesn't complete the challenge. She falls. I I don't think he got a chance to do the second one after the seals. So she doesn't complete it. And then Georgia steps up and crushes it which I think it was the most surprising performance than that to see her do as well. She did I was full lab Burke asked at just kill it. I I had no faith whatsoever. That Georgia would have been able to complete it. And I'm very impressed with her. I'm impressed Talafar. She's made it while she's done in challenges. I think you would do you think time would have been the best on the women's? I I mean, I think so because the only other girl that computer was an engine. She didn't complete the first swing. I think Georgia got all she now on the first wing. So I'm going to have to imagine that she was going so much slower. I think she must have one for the girls. Yeah. That's awesome. So what is great job by Georgia real shot, the wind depending upon what the goes down the final is. I think she's got. She got a pretty good diverse set of skills that they all talk about how well her endurances which had play key factor. And she does this Super Bowl. So Georgia could win that'll be fun. It would be something. We'd be something feel steps up. Paulie watching on hoping someone fails. But the THEO completes it seemingly without a problem uses height advantage. When he's on the third is whole body like from the ones shipping container to third one. Like that's the length of his near the swing. He just took a step and he reached the container one of my favorite shots from this entire season. And I think it was in maybe last episode or the episode before I can't remember when they have all the guys standing on a platform, and THEO is standing beside the platform like in line with the other guys and he's still taller than everyone. I can't tell us delegates all, but this also emphasizes how much shorter a lot of people are on reality shows, it just shows in general than you think you are like feels probably what six it was six thirty six four which is very tall e said he was six five on this. Let's give them six five, which is definitely tall. But it's not. Like giant height? But the problem is most of these other people you think are like six feet, they're probably like five seven or five eight so next next to someone who six five that's like a big brother little brother situation. Yeah. So the oh, he's a punches his ticket. Turbo watches on as paulie dreams slowly slowly fade away. Absolutely. Turbo looked. So unbelievably hot in his black T shirt and sunglasses just cheering everyone from the sidelines. He will he looked very very hot. You did. And TJ last episode and his pilot wanted to mention the highlights teen out of ten. Oh my God. He's never looked better. It was fit him. Very well the pilot look if he didn't look out of place. No he did. I it was just my job was on the floor. So after paulie fail for the big brother duo, they've gone doesn't do much better. She fails also and as west notes while they von was doing the challenge that her time was slower getting to the swing and Matty's. So that sets up the drama of they've on meaning to complete his swing or she would be the one limited not Matty. Yes. What's the point? It was hard to it. Which kind of sucked because then I kind of just new on was going after she didn't finish chromosomes the drama out of the the big reveal about who will be eliminated once Once West already revealed who would be a little bit. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah. So they've aunt, unfortunately, she can't do it. She fails to get to the container. Do you actually pretty hard? I think were the hardest. It's that any of them has hit square right on her back. Not look. I don't know how any any of these people even completed this. So fortunately, they've on fails. And then the last chance for paulie is if hunter. Pulls a hunter and fails or something. So he does not cool a third like first person camera view of him swinging onto the casino economy. Joy little twist after and the same block over and over and over again, so little foam camerawork by having the first person hunter angle as he came swinging in. I thought this was a pretty fun challenge to watch. And if it had to be a challenge that took up the entire episode. I think this was a pretty good one. Does that make fair? Because I mean, that's true. I mean, it was it was an interesting challenge. And there's only eight people doing it. So it's not that much. But the problem is each person, they really showed like there was no yada, yada. And they pretty much showed decent amount of everyone doing it. So that's why. Yeah. Like police last ten like TJ telling poly, you only have ten minutes left. Like, I feel like we saw all of those ten minutes. We saw every fail at them from paulie every single one in painful fashion. And even some slowness. Alba the images of him I climbing up and then his just hand just like stopping working as he's like Kumble's back into the water. Just like so sad pauper. Paulie? Yeah. It was it was not fun to what we get the news. Paulie, and Yvonne are the two eliminated leaving west turbo. Theo hunter ninja Kara Batty and Georgia thinking they're in the final, but TJ doesn't make it that easy for them. He makes them Stu a little bit longer. It just says that we'll see them later. Yeah. And they have a nice little party after saying that there's five rookies and three vets in this the vets obviously have a huge advantage. Not only that they've played the game before. But all of them have been in finals and won finals. Even if one of those finals wins has an asterik like. I mean, it's like Georgia points Aaliyah this five five rookies three vets which in theory would be like a big number. You would think but when half the cast was rookies and like most of the season they were paired together. It's not like that. Crazy. I'm gonna guess it's bless few weeks. It could have gone either way. But the fact that it's five three rookies is not super abnormal given away at the season. Now. And I was kinda thinking like, oh, it's pretty cool that. Who who are like hunter and Georgia are t a full team at Maida, and THEO and car team that made it, but then then I was like once we got to the end like we just kind of picked off there is like eight teams there, and we just kind of picked off a little bit from here. It'd be cool to see two teams make at this full then to to individuals for each side make it on their own on their own merits. Oh, yeah. That's cool. It'll be interesting to see if there's any type of teaming up or anything like that. As we go into the final of that comes back in the play at all the fact that those like Georgia hunter THEO and in car had of history together competing together. I don't know if it's all going to be an individual final his we any parts that are going to be paired so interesting of that crops crops back up again on the final. Yeah. I'm excited to watch the final over the next two and a half mile. They were discussing if they actually. They actually did make the foul. Did you think there was any doubt that these made the final or do you think as hundred noted with pulling out from the history books going back to invasion that there'd be a three way killing Florida knockout one more one more girl before the finals, you think that was going to be I was gonna go down or it was clear that the we're in the final. No, I don't think they're going to do three way killing floor, nor did I was I like set in stone that this was these were the finalists. You know, I like west philosophy of like just expect the worst in the challenge. And then you can't be disappointed, and then you can be really excited when this is the finalists. I could have seen them doing something completely different. Yeah. No know, I went initially ended. I was one hundred percent thinking that this the final it will be too crazy for them to do anything else. Like, it'd be so much in an advantage for Kara and turbo to skip two rounds of an elimination to make how that's way too much of an advantage in. And what hunter starts pulling like pass information. I was like, well, I don't know. That's kind of interesting. Why would they note that if it wouldn't be the case, and I guess there's just one last kind of red herring soft. But yeah, I was I would have been Florida if they did one more limitation before the final. So I'm sure they'll do eliminations throughout the final. So I think it's kind of just, you know, however, you call it. I think there in the finally get knocked out early in the final it is what it is. But yeah, I thought this was the clear ending up game. So there we go. So we have our we have already finalists three people finish or three people will place. I'll be curious to see how a final shakes out. Do you have any predictions for? How you see this season shaking out? Gosh, it's tough. I could see Kara and Wes being one and two. And it's like a dog fight for three. No you rooting for them since you leave reading for. Gosh, I've enjoyed west this season. I really have. I could go for Mattie. I've really liked her story throughout and that's been pretty consistent of doing this for my mom. I'm doing, you know, and she's been a fun competitor. I can't remember who pointed it out, but Matt he's been a really perfect mix of partying hooking up and challenging. Yeah. Issues to be great from the peanut gallery of my fiance's been texted me up because you could hear me like podcast. And so she won't she wants everyone else. She's rooting for Kara to win. So but that on the record. Is she a big fan of Kara because car is not a fan of you. I'll ask her that. I will get back to you. Let's see are you a fan. Great live taxing. Yeah. I love me for me. I'm I would love to see. Turbo. When I think it'd be great. Oh my God. I forgot about that. It'd be great says ham Wayne him or Mattie, I become a real big fan of Mattie. I thought one one quick scene in touch. I was her opening of about how she was in a pretty dark place after the filming of first show and she had. You know, kind of right then some goals for yourself and kind of get out start believing in her inner self again, I can actually see that. When you come off a reality show like that to kind of get back into the normal world how that could be a transition. So I would love to see Mattie win big fan of hers. Yeah. Even fair it I think that would be a really great finish for her. And I think she would be ecstatic about about a third place when she sent the tongues sticking out smile emoji, and they'll cry laugh emoji. So I'll take that as a yes. That was why she's earning for Kara. I'm really good. I read. Let's see questions from the people. First before we get to the questions. Allie sent me a task. And that is to talk about your wedding cake. That was done on Saturday. I I learned her face to be fair to me it popped up in my face that your mother playing bass you. Posted about it. And she did a great job of posting pictures and she posted one of the various cakes elections and their seven here so by site alone. It looks like there's a double chocolate so chocolate cake chocolate filling there's a red velvet with a classically cream cheese too. Interesting layer cakes which is one layer of chocolate one layer vanilla what has chocolate icing inside and the other has a little darker than a classic vanilla. So I'm interested to hear what that is. And there's a white cake with cookies and cream filling. And then there's two more that looked pretty like normal ish. So fill me and one or the other. The one this is. Again, if you want to this little riveting stuff, but we we've asked with this episode one of the top love is actually the one where going with it. Well, we're going with to because we're getting fancy with our cake. So. Now, the one one of them as I pull up in the end of the other one one of the ones going with is the middle the bottom middle. It's like vanilla chocolate cake. It was like one of the best things I've ever had the I think that's a great to pretty solid Tomba. The other one is the top left. One is. Varian cream icing, and we're doing a little twist on it instead of the vanilla cake thing making a fun fatty. Oh my God. Excellent idea fun. Fatty is my favorite kind of cake. It tastes so much better than everything else. And what was the filling in the second to the left on top. I don't I don't remember that one. Oh that was like a coffee flavor like a coffee flavor. Okay. That's what my guess would have been. Cookies and cream looks pretty cool. But I feel like not ever one. It was good. It felt the little it's not like if not fancy enough for a wedding. And they cookies and cream is a good if feels like more like a like a plus Liga, really fantastic. They party feels like. Like a wedding cake. So we steered away from that. We're both out red velvet people. So as much as it might have been great red velvet, we're not red velvet fan. So we didn't go with that one. I'm sorry. Logan, put air who said that red velvet was his favorite. I think red velvets completely over. I agree. I think it's very very specific taste, and that's not something we were going with. So in fact, we didn't like it. It was an easy rule out. Alley. I hope you're proud of me. I hope we got you the answers you needed. Some other people told me their favorite kind of cake because I asked that a lot of people went with chocolate was just going struck. It's the garage. That's very. It's a so. But fun fatty Swiss I love on fatty. So we want to. We had one question. Here we go. Bob Diddley, we kind of touched on this. But how many people do you think you're going to finish the final? So do you think they'll either be quits or eliminations throughout the final? I think there's going to be eliminations. And I think there's going to be a metaphor medevac get a little challenging medical crew on maybe like the rescue crew. Yes. I this is there a desert like that's a tough place to do a fine. I'm not one cut off seemingly zone passing out a little bit scary. But yeah, I almost passed out looking at this. Do you see sweaty everyone wants looks? It looks tough. And I feel like they don't get any water breaks during the final no-one. Sometimes I think they're sometimes like their backpacks. It's not like the the water helmet. The backpack. Like that where they can drink along the way. But I guess if you run out of that, I don't know what you do. I don't know we can restock if you're in the desert kind of screwed. Let's see. So I don't even want to pick a winner. But do you think you have you vet or rookie? What do you think would win between veterans? I think you were leaning that based on your I think I am leaning that they just have such an advantage in having done it before I think, I think I regret I think it's just because of who the vets I think between Kara and west I think going with one of them is a is a pretty likely that for a win. So I think they're big I've at the two favorites going in. Not much else. We can touch on a drinking game. Let's see. I got Kyle cards sent it over to me. Great job by him on it out. Right after the episode. So we had four rookies a lot of that coming around at the end. So rookies in the final four subtitles for flags at half. Mass ones mentioned this came back one mentioning of actually stealing the money at the see that coming back in. Two and two mentions of devante S. So I missed those I forgot conflict. I was added by Jonathan. So that's funny. I did that very piece. Incredible. I mentioned I meant to do this. I didn't do it clearly by him. He did it doesn't viral. Also, does very well is the great Meghan. Elizabeth who sent me this week's Twitter things. It was really weird. We were going to say, oh, we're to me. Go for it at at a final one. I I'm going to force my way into being a part of this. My drinking game rule is. Site of volume it during the final that's not related to eating food appear. Exhaustion like running Pugh. Yeah. Like eating like Kampuchean the challenge or in the elimination a couple of weeks ago. Of like, it's not from a gross food eating challenge or having to eat a lot of something like it's pure physical clarification. I think that's good over number in the preview they showed food eating. I kinda hope we don't see that. I can use a final without that. Yes. I'm over. We don't have. Well, I've ever really is very weak stomach. So I can't even watch slo Mo's and stuff like that zoom in now I can do without that. I literally have to not look at the screen when those things are happening because I start to gay Neva when you guys talk about sometimes I have to like if my men are. I'm not great stuff. Not fun to watch talk about. Listen to anything like that. So yeah, good addition. We'll see how the final game shakes out. I think we kind of you know, I'm a drink. Here's another one drink every time someone's eliminated or quits the final so play along with that anytime soon zone during the final. Now, we got Megan Elizabeth with the Twitter not much. There's not much going on in the episode not much going on Twitter. Hardly because they're all starting at least for a lot of it. They've von so we can start with her Yvonne said it was on this nineteen j live and let me in the face and told me, you're a bad motherfucker laugh crime Oji laughed Ramsey left prime. Oh my God. All right. I'll starts I love how much teaching on. He's us. He you can earn Thisiis back through season. I think the respect for pretty von per from TJ grew exponentially throughout the season with with every performance. She had. Next up. They've onnell Sarah so heights water climbing ship, and it's a damn purge with a gif. I'm tired. And she was too tired to climb up the robot. One more from the on saying watching the fight Impala during this challenge. It was unbelievable. There is no quit in him. I am. So proud little big brother love. A little divine. Love from ninja saying devante fricking, carry your weight, and then some flexing emoji nocco on the second guess you ever elimination Queen crown emoji. The challenge tweeted back saying real recognize real so little love there. And also ninja giving love to Paul saying, you never quit in all caps. Never showed any sign of weakness. When things didn't go your way, I respect everything. You've coached me with can't wait to watch your redemption devil emoji. A little tease for season thirty four. Aw. That that's all the Twitter. But we got that's pretty crazy. Not much on. So one thing you asked me was what else are we talk about. And I would like to dedicate just a few minutes to. All of the terrible shows. I've watched that are feeder systems for this. Now only used to be real world. And I am not a purist. So I was pretty okay with the one coming in. And I was skeptical about big brother people coming in. Now. I don't care like let's everyone in I'm fine with it. I love that. I can go back and see their origin stories. Bringing more. Are you the one people I love are you the one I even went back in like watched ex on the beach UK, which is a great show ex on the beach, which is. A worse back from each. Gosh. What else you're really into pop rules right now. A problem on my deep in the van their pump rules world. Yeah. Rourke told me like a while ago. I should try that. I have this really great. I this really great streaming service. It's called. Hey, you this is not sponsored obviously. But if they want to sponsor me, please call me because I love them so much. That's why I watched like every season of top. Chef they have a couple of seasons of love island UK. So I've been watching that too. Even though that's too many episodes. I'm sorry, forty four episodes in season two. That's a lot do many. I haven't enjoying it though. Gosh. So I will watch fan of roles. I promise three story. I never really got into all these shows is there's someone that you're scouting that could be a good pickup to drop into this world is there from any shows or other low violent people. What do you think would make the best fit to make another jump over? Honestly feels like any of these people could easily come on the challenge because it's worked for other people. So like why not? What they have not gone to yet. Because it's a very new show that I think they should is a double thought at love with Vinny alternative. It's on the TV family that that's coming. There are some women on that show that I think would be good on the challenge. I'm looking at you. And I'm not joking. When I say this. View to be allies favorite person. She's pretty great. And I think she'd be good on the challenge. I found on the beach a little disappointing this season. So is there anyone I really want from there? I don't really care that much was this season that we do podcast reineck events and watch out the previous season. Yes. Fill the gap and a year ago. So long ago and that also was on for five and a half years and they're already filming the third season. Yeah. So check Bev MO for casting spoilers on that or one of my favorite Instagram accounts. A y t o underscore t two or something like that. It's something like that. I love it. I love that. And challenge t nine one one emotional coming back. I love very important in our world is the bachelor I should say actually, thank you for reminding me. Yeah. So the bachelor at special was this past Monday where they brought back twelve out of the fourteen previous bachelorettes to heloc. Nice little reunion. Do you know why the other two couldn't because I did watch? It actually pretty fun persona. Wasn't watched a lot of the earlier seasons kinda cool. See some of those close. But do you know why the to the too early ones didn't? Come back. He yes. So Genshaft said that she was on vacation and couldn't make it and timing just wasn't right or whatever. And they probably weren't gonna try and work around. Jen chef schedule to make it right? So that she come the other one is Meredith Phillips in. I've heard that an invitation wasn't even extended to Hearn. There is some got I don't wanna say drama because that makes it sound petty. And it's definitely not. There was some accusations of sexual assault against Meredith one. She was the lead. I'm not going to go into that you can go if you really wanna find it out. But I would guess that's probably hard of it. And I. Don't call me on this. I think they might have had a settlement out of court. And so like, they're probably not going to go to the Meredith. Well, and she had a really tough time after the bachelor she had some struggles with alcohol abuse. And so she probably wouldn't be like, oh my God. The bachelorette was just one of the best experiences of my life. And like I had all these opportunities because of because back then they didn't have the opportunities that leads have now lay. That's just the case. So I would guess that's probably a couple reasons. Why marriage? Store those checkout. And then so I was shocked to learn that the bachelorette starts next Monday was not prepared for that. I didn't see any buzz about like a cast released. I saw stuff today. Finally. But I feel like the bachelor, or at least the girls are announced at least a couple of weeks before the premiere that like the buzz on the profiles and the all that stuff. I just saw kind of drop today a little bit. Well, they did something really weird, and it might have gone under the raider. If you're not like have your eye on the factor stuff all the time. Because if my line of work, I do. I'd say the day after or two days after the after the final row special. They did release the cast. Oh, they did they release the cast on ABC's Facebook, and my theory is they did this. So that. The internet could vet these guys before they act started, filming the smart. And it worked because there is one guy. And I can't remember his name, nor will I learn it because I do not care. Came out that he would harass people on Twitter and Instagram and their knowledge alone. And you know, this was like classic stories. You hear about guys just being like, hey, hey, hey, you're beautiful. Hey, as my, hey, hey, what are you doing answering me? Hey, you know, just like something like that. You're not supposed to do that stuff. That's wrong. That's wrong. I know you didn't do that to Emily Andrzej slave. Okay. I would never. I would never. Yeah. So that guy was not involved in the cast after that point. That's very smart privacy to do that at the last couple of seasons of really bad stuff coming out about some people. That's that's the way to learn from your mistakes and stuff. I hope they do that with the girls next season. Also with the bachelor. That's very smart. Yeah. Yeah. So and then I guess the cast was re released yesterday or the day before. Anyway, we're recording are trapped tomorrow with Mary quick goski, and we're really excited about that. So it should be this weekend. In time for you to do your drafts at work where where do you subscribe to the the bachelor bachelorette paradise? If you you're subscribed to the challenge podcast on the reality TV, we're happy. The bachelor podcasts will already pop up near feet. What you should do is also subscribed to the bachelor only feed. So then you can double download the podcast, which I do for my podcast. And also the challenge you get a little bit of. Downloads. Yeah. So yeah, you can subscribe there or rod has website dot com slash bachelor batch cast or any combination of those things or just Google my name, and it'll come up. I don't know something like that. Originally. It was I did this is going to be maybe a bad thing could be a good thing. But Hannah as the bachelorette is going to be something. So. Could be something very different from the past couple of bachelorettes because. Unsurprisingly women are held to higher standard than men on the show on these shows. And the last couple bachelorettes have been like, lawyers, and very smart, and blah, blah, blah, not saying that like Hannah, isn't smart, but she just doesn't have a grasp on the English language that some of the other people. If I can put that in the nicest possible way, and she's also very young she's twenty three compared to like the last couple of been like twenty six to thirty. So it will be very different in in a way that. It won't feel as produce as I feel like maybe a couple pass seasons happened because the leader where where Hannah doesn't really have that ability to be super aware. So it should be should be interesting. That's for sure. Yes. Interesting one way or the other and otherwise it'll be should be good. So that'll be coming on Monday. And I know you guys use your record either Tuesday or Wednesday also so beyond look out for that you want just don't just I would say scrub to this. But also subscribe to the basher, and as you mentioned get the double downloads. So get the double download for this one at Rob's upside dot com slash challenge teams. Allie will we back? For the time five star reviews. I'm both podcasts, especially I know. It's very important for you guys. If with the UC's coming leave the five stars lead the comments get pumping up the rankings for people to find if in these season, so very important to do that very excited alley back. I'm sure curious if she'll have any thoughts, I'm sure she will on the past three episodes. So we have lots of catch up on next week. Unrelenting your final year law school exams. That's a really amazing accomplishment. Or so proud of you, and do you work so hard, and you deserve it and your great. We miss you. Which is also my vows are going to be. Please. Like you're saying there is a joke. But I could also see you being like one day before being like, oh, yeah. I didn't write my vows. You know, what I'll just say did a let's pretty she's making me go first. So I don't have that option. So God, I love Emily so much. So. Yeah. So yeah, we'll be back next week. Where can they follow you on Twitter to get all the good stuff there? You can find me on Twitter Instagram at eight strong underscore hash. Hashtag team underscore, and you can read my blog strong takes dot CA. Great. You can follow me. I comb burn underscore alley. And I'll be back next week for the final into. Then have it. Go on.

Bachelor Presents Listen To Your Heart Finale: Naming a Winner in Nashville

"Hey everybody and welcome to the bachelor presents. Listen to your heart or HAP- up or the finale. I'm amy here as always ability. Haley strong healy. How're you doing tonight? You know amy. I really really like you but I just don't know if we're at the same place that might bloom in Rochester. Nina are at right now. So it's I don't know if we could perform it's fine like come on. Healey we just don't fake it. I just single say we don't have to be like them real. I know I know but like I just I look at them and we're just not them and I just I don't like I think you're so great I just I just can't I just can't do. I just can't do this. This is the finale. This is the finale of the show. I know one episode to cover. I don't know either of the songs that well so it's like do I really want to bother learning them? I mean they were more played to my strengths. I guess Rotisserie Whitney Houston Very thing this was such a letdown. I am so so so incredibly disappointed and like I honestly haven't had this strong reaction watching watching anything from the bachelor and a very long time. I was genuinely upset and away. I never thought I could be a bill. Listen to your heart rate. I know I was right there with you. I was just like settling into watch. I had it on my dvr. And I was really excited for their performance and then this up seen it was dragging on so then I got my hopes up that like Oh. They won't be showing US this much. If that's all they're going to happen they're gonNA come back at the end or something. No we got a finale with just two couples. I'm devastated and we'll get into it. We do have some news to cover her. Yeah I never sleeps and law. Some people should be sleeping looking at you. Hannah Brown who on an instagram live? When she was seeing a song saying an incredibly derogatory word that no one should say who looks like us. White people do not need to use that word. I don't care a way what you're weird little stipulation is that you think you can you cannot. I don't care if it's in a song you're listening to you. Skip over that. No it's not it's daughter word inch sure you can say like oh well no one should be using it. You don't have the right to tell them not to tell black people not to use it and it's gross. Oh we keep having having to have this conversation that you cannot use that word. I don't know where people have been for the last like hundreds of years Disappointing to see that. Come out about Hannah. And then she had kind of like a not really like an apology or denying it at on the live so and then came out with a more formal apology. Later on and several members of veterans have spoken up Rachel Lindsay. Of course show so wonderful so elegant eloquent so just like a magical woman talked about. Why why it's not okay as it is to be like the spokesperson like sheet positions of black people to tell us why we why why people should not be using that word and I had heard that she had offered Hannah to come on her platform and him like turned down and pick it up. Pick up on that so yeah hugely hugely disappointing. I like what else is there for us to say about that in lighter. News Jane Tanner. Baby number three is already on the way free. Sounds like that sounds great. Babies on three sounds amazing. Kim Spradlin did it. I don't know how she recommended it. Now congrats That sounds like something that they wanted us so. I'm very happy with them. Hopefully she doesn't need to give in the closet again. Yeah hopefully are they at least have outfitted it well this time. Yeah like Gurney or something. It's gotTA ready to go. Although maybe you know quarantines still going on monitoring for probably six months from now they living well -fornia it's been extended to August true true so and then. Caitlyn one of the judges on the finale released a single. I remember hearing her talk about this way back when so I think she's been hanging onto it was super nervous. Probably felt timing makes sense now. Why NOT She is on the episode. So I wouldn't I exactly and I think it jumped to number one in Canada and the US. I have yet to listen to it. I will get around to it. Music has never been my strong suit but yeah good for her like I remember. Yeah crystals her hometown date for that season. She took to recording studio. Oh I don't remember that. Maybe that'll be one of our episodes that we get to can't wait and see. Do you think the crystals skip to Kaitlin season? No that's a good question. Well let's on it notes is that we're GonNa talk about what seasons we think we're going to see in that. What seasons seasons in coverage and then if they're show season will they show Brit or religious like brush pass did that? They can't not show. Her is the premier that was like the thing leaning up to the season differentiated for sure but then it makes sense to show crystal season so you root person is having a baby pretty soon. I think there's a lot of babies come in variou-various soon Jenny Cooper is on thirty. Nine I was learning my fence. Sta which I haven't done it in a while. It's basically my instagram account To follow like the Bachelor people and MTV people that I don't WanNa fall on my main account hadn't been on it and like five over. And I was looking through today and there was honestly probably about five people who are like week thirty. Nine like can't wait to me. I it a Beca a picture of her stay. I was like Oh yeah I forgot about this. Yeah who do you think is next I would say Ari Lauren? We'll be like another one. I'll have another I'm into. Did you see Arias new hair another story K love the grade? Don't love Blonde. I feel like people are really in with the blonde. Yeah I think is what I like about. I really do like that haircut. Have you had to give your boyfriend corn here? I just the front not do a good job. Relying on products out like this is not like things are not like a thing that you should be. Yeah I I have cut Ethan's okay. Luckily he's an. He's in a thing right now where he wants to leave the top long so it didn't do anything cut but did have to do like the best feed basically. It turned out much better than I could have ever expected. Good I saw charlene had like a tutorial and so I kind of watch that and I was like. Maybe I'll go back and really do this but I didn't really WANNA commit. No you just want to kind of go in like light first and then decide if you want to take the next steps exactly. Luckily my hair. I don't need to do anything to it just like I'll look forward to chopping off at some point but yeah at the beginning. Quarantine completely faded the fun hair dye. That's your Nari have uncommon. Yeah we do all right. So let's get back to the episode if we must candle easy great about this episode. Yeah what is it? Every time I saw the preview I thought it was learned. Bushnell was rejoining Nashville. I was shocked tonight to find out that was jewel is true. So funny was like Lauren. Finally like we were kind of mad that she got brush over before. It's like oh off looking good looks great. Yeah this yeah so they are in Nashville. I guess she must be now. She kind of switch to more country from folk and it's funny yesterday out of nowhere. It was singing one of my favorite jewell songs which is sad depressing one. What's IT called She gets up at six. Am Yeah so far from our youth. Fan Jeans lasts for so long even after. No you see. Your member made me work done that song. That would have been good. I want them to have somebody like seeing a son. From one of the judges that'd be fun was was taped exactly original version of rent. I think so all my God okay. Okay here me out here. Wow MISSED OPPORTUNITY. Bring back the whole cast seasons of love. That'd been so perfect for season the winner of the first season. I'll listen to your heart committed. Show Glenn because the winner of the first season listen to your heart. Listen to your heart. I was like big dreams. Air Become big dreams. He talks about that. One couple is going to get their dream so we see them arriving to Nashville and we kind of get a little check in with each couple. Mostly the guys narrating Trivia Trevor Talks about. The plan is to move to Nashville that there. And then Chris talking about being with bree. I don't know if Matt talking about I think he was. We saw a little bit of him before then. But then we get Chris Harrison coming into the sweet saying that it's all about love commitment music they have to be. They have to check off all those spots. Make sure you can check off all those boxes. They said the gift to be in love forever. Kind of what he does on that Bachelor. That dreaded Bachelor in Paradise Day where half the couples leave and this may not very nervous. Show yeah okay. I don't know how long the flight from L. Las Vegas to Nashville is cross country ish. But not the most cross country four hours right. Why waste your time and come to Nashville. Here's my thing I think. After last week's performance matt and Rudy were on a high amount was like the solidifies everything in my conspiracy theory. I have tinfoil hat. So the producers pulled me aside and said do you love Rudy? If you do you should tell her like. Are you falling in love with runing? You need to tell her you need to tell Rudy that you love her. Because I think like you need that moment. They wanted sweet eight or whatever. They wanted ready to win. They couldn't give them the win if they set. I love you or I'm falling in love with you or whatever. Okay that freaked out and he had to leave and I'm guessing that they probably still didn't want them to leave. That probably messed up. You know it seems weird to gather all these people for a big finale show. We're song yeah for four songs. Only two couples like Oh they just had to flip a coin. Who's GonNa win like there's really no like? There's no suspense there I had another thought that maybe he didn't want to get like. I think definitely like hearing Chris Harrison kind of put it in perspective freaked out about like what the contract would be like if yes to perform with Rudy. And if he's not there and it's like oh I don't WanNA play as if we're madly in love for a whole year as we go on tour or something and became more realistic that they might win. Thought it was weird until like leave right when you hit the crowd in Nashville. Why not like go on the date studying the conversation of the songs feeling with you but I really really like you. And I don't want to end this and take you to win if seems in love. So we're just saying we. We robbed of hearing releasing Whitney Houston which is incredibly rude. Yeah I guess. She did a little excerpt of that song on her instagram. To that she did. It was magical. Yeah so I did get a little choked up when I saw him in the car saying like. That's the part. He was most upset about that. He took that away from her. Obviously very difficult decision but so upsetting has to be this way. I wished I was genuinely so mad. And I like I did not believe. They weren't in the finale show until he was in the SUV. And even then I was like well. Maybe he'll say stop stops comeback. Yeah I truly do not believe it. The bachelor is not brought something like in me in a very long time and I did not expect it to come from into your her show. We didn't even sing. We're going to watch well. Then the preview showed really really upset with them like. Oh it's not be that bad and they really just was the. It's too late for someone to leave at this point. Would Raymond. Natasha have done. This Day would have gotten married onstage. Binded together to win the show and I one hundred percent believe that they would have done anything. Terrible terrible also Matt like you couldn't put on a better shirt to break up with rudy like that. The kids in high school used to go smoke weed lunch. It those like half like plaid halves sweatshirt jackets. Ten minutes pacing. The hallway is like having a breakdown like I feel the core. I hope he had like a great chat with the onset therapist after because like he. I'm not saying that. Unlike a mean way like a really hope he found like closure that he needed because this was obviously like very weird stressful scenario for him because he just clearly had no idea what he was getting into becoming becoming a member of the bachelor franchise and then I was thinking like okay. Is he one of those guys that had something kind of going on back home? And it's like okay. I don't want to drag this out anymore. Because he was like breaking up with two. It wasn't like we're not there yet. I hope you know how much I care about you. We'll be bonded for the rest of our lives. But it wasn't like I want to see where this goes but just not beyond this finale. You know like it just felt like it was done but apparently he like they're kind of seen each other long distance okay. I haven't seen update on. I read it somewhere and then I guess Natasha Reiner are also just taking it day by days alone just a kick is seeing people aren't in Jamie have broken up already. Can you believe that don't know the Spanish shock but I didn't see that so? I like the latest updates yet but I could kinda tell. Based on their instagram's he did not move to Nashville. Yeah Jamie and Trevor Yeah this episode. He just it was it was. It was weird with them. I was really just hoping they weren't GonNa win. Honestly just don't see how they could not performances like either arrangement like it wasn't totally their fault on the first song but Swiss Jamie would stop touching his face all she's singing. Yeah in this entire because we saw in this episode. Drudge Rita Wilson Who I'd say about a month after this was filmed Announced she had corona virus. Got into the timing together but yeah all all the face. Touching is just like we were living in timeline in which we're just not touching each other's faces that much. Yeah I was just fine. Yeah so it doesn't doesn't read so well even more weird. Yeah but they the remaining two couples. Well how do you think about how they reacted to and Rudy Leasing? Okay okay Bree you lovely little snake. I love you so much. All my God she knew okay. I believe three was genuine. But she knew that Rudy Rudy or her competition. And when I need to leave. She's like whatever makes you. Happy is what makes me happy making me. Happy is winning and without you guys all do that. Thank you right right like I'm so happy for you guys that you broke up on our leaving the competition. What yeah. Genie was clearly very upset. She loves James also very clearly twenty one years old. No like this. That is when I was in university for steer and we found out that one of our roommates was there one of our you know monk whatever it was called residents made his late dropping out halfway through the year moving home. You're just like go. I love you like don't ever leave. And then you're like I'll talk to you again. So Rudy tells Jamie to win it for her. So they're obviously very close didn't pan out but she did get the fantasy suite and it looks like the date was already in the fantasy and they just have to go upstairs like why did they need a key and also jumping just ahead. Breed did not take the fantasy suite date so assume that they went back to the sweet that they were all sharing with each other. But no one else was there. Was it just finished six. And was this like the night before. 'cause then. I think they're smart for turning down just to be like no. We gotTA relax before the Fire. Perform downstairs in. I don't know if lady in the tramping donut is great for your vocal cords but I am not a professionally. Trained singer right. Maybe not the best thing to have the day before or morning. After Kris and breezed eight ended right after they decided not to. It was just like okay. Yeah just finished their dinner okay. Why didn't lose at least take it to hang on talk? I think has this. Is Me making a huge assumption? Bree FROM UTAH. Utah has a very large Mormon end religious population. I would think that she doesn't want like I think she understands will. Yeah we're wife system. Yeah what is fantasy suite implies and I don't think she wanted that on her right right. That makes sense in. Chris took a super well and he was happy and then they tried like like the show tried to make make it seem like issue between them when it just seemed. Chris was just kind of like in himself. Yeah we'd never saw Chris in an item saying anything about any problems it was just pre saying like some things change like I can feel it or whatever. What if she was just talking about their musical chemistry or because they had a battery her so didn't really seem like I don't know it didn't seem like it became anything Yelich. Show me the rest of the rehearsals with everyone. And you can't tell me. They were one hundred percent of the time. Oh on the fantasy suite with trevor and Jamie Trevor. Says I feel like I've already won was just setting up like we're probably yeah. I don't believe anything trevor says. Yeah then see we get to the show. I don't remember what what venue it was. It was fairly large venue. It's ninety opry. I feel like I would have remembered if it was. It wasn't pat more modern when they first show the audience billion all twenty. Something was surprised you get any guys audience. But eventually they did People were pretty hype secrets Harrison showing up in a Tux. What what. I would love to say. That wouldn't be me but I went to this bachelor concert and Chris Harrison came out. I would be whipping along. Yeah I hate to say it probably would to a lot of that those clips that they cut to people cheering for the performances. Probably the Chris Harrison footed there in the most enthusiastic or the judges the bachelor royalty Caitlyn and Jason Jason qualify as royalty already or is it just. You know you're welcome. Jason for being with Caitlin thought is the only reason got invited to this. I like seeing them. I'd like Jason Caitlyn and they're cute together. I hope they have a long life of happiness and wonderfulness together and I loved Jason Soup. Yeah he kinda rocked back when he was on the show too. I think navy. Yeah maybe it's the same even pointed out that almost every woman at the finale was wearing some sort of black sequins. Rita Wilson looked like twins like their hairless sequins even the performance right Yup. What is the Wardrobe Department doing? Because they were responsible for all of this and they couldn't have fit Jamie for a better bra. See what I was wondering if like Bush going old school like the Wonderbra like she's like she's cinching things. She is beautiful and gorgeous and talented and has a rock bod. I just feel like she could have had support. Yup So let's see who else we. We had tate eggs and as we mentioned before. How did you feel about this panel a little more super size of Hannele? Yeah I was excited about jewel. I like jaw exist. Like he's great. Jamie know who takes exists. Does Jamie Joel this. I think she might know. Joel is have you ever heard of Rita Wilson Song? No but then. I heard that she wrote the song helped. Write the songs for that. Then you do and I have watched that movie. So have those songs. Is that the one she had four albums is that the one about a one hit wonder something. Yeah I have not watched it yet. Maybe I'll get their takes if these these. Tom Hangs see yeah. I was excited. I guess like the One thing. Caitlyn could done is if she had a single ready to go then. Chris could have announced it. She also is a recording artist. Better yeah given her the most credited as a judge so as far as the song. Assignments have Jimmy Trevor Got unchained melody of the righteous brothers and speechless speechless by Dan and Shea which I don't really know them but I've heard that song it is okay. It is one of the most boring things I have ever heard my entire life and when I heard there. He got unchained melody on his leg. No please don't do that. The song please. Yeah Yeah I think it was a rough choice and they did that to that song. Exactly that was my least favorite performance of the night for sure did not arrangement and I just didn't really have anything to say about it. But the judges did. They seem to they have to. Yeah you have to make it look like there's a fight but it was just. Yeah no contest Chris got make you feel my love. So they had said Bob Dylan within the paper said Adele certain cover of it and then give me love by a cheering and now that that song like that performance gave me chills and I love I love the choir and I love like the big string instruments like I thought that was a really wonderful performance and I'm happy that's like what we ended the season on. Yeah for sure. And we're Rudy and Matt's son so they are going to have saving all my love for you by Whitney Houston and it's your love by Faith Hill. I don't know if I know that one. Yeah I don't. I don't think I know that one either but I think at some like a legit duet between the two so would probably. We haven't really seen them do like a slower ballads. That would've been nice to see. I think more subdued song Yeah this is the second part of the performances. I was still like reeling from replacement. But did you have any doubt that in Chris? Room take this yeah I did have. I was worried that it just like because I feel like we. We really didn't see that much of Christian bree Philly trevor and Jamie were so much the story that I was like. Oh my God. What if they win and then? I would have called collision because their performance was significantly worse than Chris and breeze right significant noticeable. Yeah and even the praise that they got at the end like saying I would pay money to hear you singing and Jason versus just. Oh my God is like velvet to the ears and a thing. Breeze voice plays off it really nicely aware. I don't whenever Julius starts off the song I like where she's going and then as soon as trevor comes in it like throws her off to recover right. Yeah so and then Jason something like the world needs to hear more of you so I was just kind of like okay. They're giving away even in their comments whereas the comments to Genius Trevor Morley. Because they're so cute like did you go to fantasy so like all you together. Maybe I'll comfy. But I'm a prude. I seen in the middle of the song. I don't WanNa hear Caitlyn's like oh like fantasy sweet dates. Have you been there yet? Sounds seems like you're gonNA go there soon. Yeah you're about their sexcapades. Guess that's why they have to have a Bachelor Nation Cup all on every just because otherwise why would come up so they are announced as the winner they get to go on their little tour at the end and then it just closes out with that. It was kind of like kind of low fanfare than we gave us. A little update singing in studio session super cute. I enjoyed seeing that. Yeah so they got started right away which is good Apparently the album's already. Oh I think it's ten songs. I five originals and covers the ones that they did on the show and yet said are still deeply loved and look forward to their debut album. So yes sorry there. Yeah I think these crazy kids can make it. I hope so yeah. It didn't seem like there are any issues. Aside from that unexplained little glitzy going on the night or the morning of that rehearsal. Yeah let's get to our audience questions we has. I feel like those will. If there's anything we missed they always bring it up. So we'll get a cover and Gary Hogan this question is also on my mind Haley. Will we see season to someday? This is tough. I don't think they got good numbers. And that's when there's literally nothing else to watch that's pretty damning say but they weren't GonNa Bring Back Winter Games Summer Games. Yeah at one point so I don't think that was huge success. No I I would ask a second season. I do think there needs to be some changes More people around. I mean look what happened. Now that the head they put so much pressure on them that we only had four people in the finale. Like I'm sure they would have rather had contestants and I would have liked to see more people around. Maybe switch up the couples. Yeah I wrote. I brought a blog post today. I'm going to post it tomorrow. So when it goes UP CASCO'S OUT IT'll probably be up so one of my ideas to make a show better was just instead of having an uneven number of people at the beginning and bringing a couple of people in have everyone there from the beginning and start performances that week everyone has up. Yeah and I think some pairs could get voted out by judges or the other people. Whatever and more agency to switch up couples. If you're fighting an imbalance is more girls and guys would you have like a couple where they do two different pairings and try it out many but would say don't even have an imbalance just make them match? Yeah triangles and performance every week. Because I think I think you may agree with me. Is that the first two episodes of the season where the worst ones and there was no performance to it so you know there was how many people that we didn't even get to sing. Yeah so many. That didn't hear speak I would love to. I would love loved if everyone had a chance to reform and if the first two weeks are three hundred states yeah oh states. Whatever sing on yeah so I was just like to see a little bit more from everyone and have less pressure in that. Like if you're not currently in a solid couple you must go to see that drama kind of caused by like okay. A solid couple but the judges can't some that isn't a solid couple but they perform awesome together. Buy into it right. Natasha like that causes drama to. If you probably don't even really like each other serious but they stay in longer than someone else. That was a real couple. But they don't sound good together so I would like to see that. Like why do we have to like give it away to the judges and say oh? Yeah we're so in love. We told each other. We love you like it should be like just watch the performance and decide on their chemistry. Yeah exactly and you don't know if like performing together could lead to more chemistry because it because the show feels more like a game. I think that they really should die. Wrexham sells more towards a bachelor pad form rather than a Bachelor in paradise format. Yes have a couple of go home at the end of every episode have two couples go home. I don't care let's see everyone. Let's like in Bachelor Pad. They could switch up their couples. They didn't have to stay in the same couple of the entire time. One of my favorite moments in the season was when half of a couple was forced to go on a date with somebody they really WanNa be with and it didn't totally work for most couples but there was a little spark of drama with Jillian Brandon. And I would've I would've loved if halfway through the season everyone had to perform or somebody different heavy so good even if they're like so solid nope you gotta performance. This other person takes them away from that person to it's like could cause drama by like. Oh they're nine spending time with me in the house because we've gotta rehearse you know so. I think those are two two or a couple of things would really help and next season if there is one I mean. Trevor Even said something like it was really corny but it was like oh. I felt like I could be her because she heard me sing. So she's already seen my soul like if that's how they're feeling then it's like yeah. Sing together right away. If that's what connects them. Then they're gonNA open up more early on Justin Feinberg if you're part of our nation like Jamie is quoting Chris. Harrison is this Chris. Harrison's way of subtler alerting the audience at Jamie's only person entire CAST. Who has seen an episode of the show before it felt like it? I I felt like Rudy knew was going on but yeah probably not to the same extent or didn't want to admit it smartly and is the show trying to tell us that Brienne. Chris nearly lost because they practiced and rehearsed in the morning. Jamie and Trevor and nearly one because they spent the morning leading and a tramping the and then let's see I think it cut off the second sorry follow up. Haley decided podcast about the bachelor of the greatest seasons ever well. She spent more time taking notes on this season. She hasn't seen before or lady in the tramping donut with Ethan while the episode Areas Things Justin. I haven't taken a note for this podcast since twenty twenty fourteen second fall. Do you think share a donut with anyone can point. I also think they're going to focus a lot of the seasons. You actually have seen going to deepen the only way I shared. Dona is if we go get like a three pack of donuts and we cut them all in half totally all of the kind. Yeah I have one. I am not sharing my one doughnut. Maybe share like. What are those called? The Long Johns like the doughnuts and one. Yeah Yeah like whip cream so I get to eat those or a beaver tail as you love me a beaver tail and then let's see. We have a comment on that question. Michelle Dworkin says. That was gross and I have a very low bar. I watched the show after. And then just and find very. Are you more likely to listen to Chris? Breeze debut album titled Chris Bree Released New Single hit away or James singled. Go to your head or well Michael. Todd's hot touch remained the most successful piece of music produced by this cast forgot. God Can you imagine if we had him for more performance with Him we are? We have been robbed. Should have to be in front of celebrity judges right away that you can handle it. Yeah they'll get more motivated to like. Ooh This is legit. We could win something like give them the stakes right away. Although now if there is a season two they know what the winning couple gets. There is a winning couple some. Maybe they would get more people that WANNA fake it. We'll see and then just eric since streaming trevor are broken up now. We'LL JAMIE APPEAR ON. Five consecutive seasons then retired from the bachelor franchise at the age of twenty seven making us off hold on the process and determine. I really find himself fall in love with Jamie or two. Did he find himself? Falling in love with the idea of getting the fantasy suite with a twenty one year old. Yes sorry my bad. I just was being lazy Tonight and copied and pasted the entire facebook thread without opening no anymore. Yeah I hope you guys like Jamie because we will be saying here for an. I'm being this year's to calm. Yeah yeah and I think they like she would have been even to unfor- Colt and season. I feel like when that was so depending who the bachelor is going to be next like she could have been on. Peter Season would have fit in there. But yeah this might have been somebody that was applying for the batch. Already somebody they WANNA have in their casting lists at times so yeah paradise whenever it comes back another bachelor season who knows and then what was really up with Matt and Rudy quitting this from Michelle to work and also could it really have been because there was not true love after a few weeks to me that's crazy. Trevor should have scored Matt on how to fake or taking classes from Natasha Ryan. Right like just focus on performance side of things like getting. They don't even know who the judges we're going to be like. Who knows what you're missing out on? What kind dates? They might have gotten in Nashville. They got that cool city date that we like to see. You can bow out like some other time. Maybe didn't WanNa jerk like after the fantasy suite date or something but I really think not let rudy perform and not just honest their like she said we don't fake it they can say we haven't said. I love you. Get the judges aren't GonNa pick you. You know so then you don't worry about it. Also joy not really questioned but I cannot stand the way they meet seemed like Kim Christopher fighting or not gonNA make it. They must've spliced together. Random audio clips. Yeah I don't know what the scoop was because they seem. Just fine right yeah. I'm still a little confused by that. And they're fine now. Apparently so I guess the right couple did win. It's good for them. Yeah I just wish we had a little more drama. Real drama finale. I did have one question from emily. Sure she texted it to me but now I can't seem to find it. So yeah if you want to text your questions to me you can. I will not give you my number unless you're you know who you are. If you have that privilege. God hears us who. Who would you have wanted John Bachelor in paradise? Okay I like Matin Rudy La but I would have been found out to see them like not be together but maybe they would go to bathroom paradise and get back together or if they just Matt Seen Oh totally not carry isn't his seen I think. Ryan Natasha Leah. Because you would cause Vanna Vanna. Yup Jamie I think is a lock. Yeah See Ryan there. It also doesn't seem like it would suit him really but I would because I think he'd be a big draw seem at somber. I'd like to see like at wears like he'd be like do you share it went. He would forget to bring a bathing suit. You think he'd just drive down. There and Sheila was that her name was gene in the van. Seem wearing like those fluey pan really like totally Boho It'd be fun to see him down there again just someone. That's not really like the typical intestine and I feel like he'd be the one that women would like the ones who weren't finding anybody or youth anybody they'd like sharing it like they'd all pounce on him to be like that lasted they all keep me around and he'd like feel really guilty like who keep and I've seen them being in like who was vendrell. John's are all end up being like the player paradise an hero. It's funny that beef when we talking about the bachelor finale and who AIDS and how we're like we're probably going to see listen to your heart people as small. We'd rather see most that cast than probably anyone from Peterson. Over Peterson. Much of them. I liked I liked. This cast. Yeah trying to think. If there's anyone I would pair up with from Peter Season like Ryan would try and make out with Ryan immediately. Yeah definitely you'd be over his head for sure that'd be fun. I feel like they'd ask Brandon speaking but I wouldn't WanNa see him there and he's way too old for all of Peter's cast third-party forgetting like who like guys would be coming. I think we're ready for the blast from the past. That's coming up in June. So so let's talk about so we are not gonNA take a break. We're just GONNA says content. We're going. Yeah so we're going to talk about Labor of love this couple of weeks. Well let's Eric Harley. Lena was tangentially related. Besides being like a love competition the lead was on past season. Bachelor way back when that's yeah. She was it. Radwan wolfback season. Maybe after her. Oh something donning yes. So we're GONNA talk about that for the next couple of weeks and then we are going to talk about the bachelor presents seasons. You've already seen. Yeah we'll see what like memories in mind where. Yeah yes. We're looking forward to that. Yeah we're talking about it. A whole season Anna in a three hour movie version the patch. She's excited about whom I most excited about. I think maybe some of the seasons. I haven't seen like I'd love to see like Bob. Guiney season get covered. I don't think it will happen but I would like to see that. I'm worried that they're not gonna go back too far. Because it just doesn't like suit this Sediq now or like some have as much drama that can create three hours worth. I hope they do though that history we need. I agree I want. I don't remember those as well. I we're going to get Jason Mesdaq for sure. We're getting Joe for sure. Sure all the previews yes. We're going to get sean low for sure Do you think do you think we'll get it? Ben Higgins I think so I. He's popular but his season was pretty They'll show clips like have a video call with anybody or have them fill like it. The air like where. Where is Ben? Now I think that. Yeah Sean and Catherine author. Abc's definitely from the Bachelorette see. I think we're going to go pretty recent. We're we're going to get Trista. But then we're gonNA maybe get like Jillian and Allie Caitlyn. Joe jo-jo Rachel. Yeah Jillian would be good. I don't think we'll get a successful one so I know it's so funny I feel like we're getting get Juan Pablo so that we can up for Claire. Yeah I'm looking forward to it. I think the pandemic has completely eaten away at my brain and now it's left me everything. I wouldn't have cared about three hours of the show in one night. We sound cleaning although it is going to cut into my early bedtime rely on the dvr route.

How are you doing tonight. I'm doing well ish. I don't know I feel like we just watched four hours of nonsense. I saw this was going to be the finale. Sam No it's not it's just the mass exodus of some people keep all and then going to the rest of them yet. I feel like the whole second assode could have been condensed into thirty five minutes. Probably I kept watching it because I was watching. This engagement may happen. There's not much time left. Oh I guess we're not getting any engagements yeah and not only is the finale not right now happening done. We're not covering the end of it until like Tuesday because dancing with the stars is back. Is that what it in house yeah. At least it's only one night next thing I guess so I guess I have to count my my blessings things yes because they have to have everyone tune in to see Hannah be with her acting in neither of us either of US busy well. Let's see there was the first episode we believe it or not. We still didn't have a resolution to Ceylan Dean yet. That's where we started off. Kaelin Calin have to you know talk with Connor and way things out with him act like she was considering staying with him juice. You sat down together man made them over a debate not like a physical fight like we're not doing a Jordan whatever ever his name was coal like. Give me a good debate. Yeah I mean you had some good debate points. I think in the name of love it's not going to sway Kaylynn to your side so no 'cause. I think he'll ins looking for whoever's. GonNa give us instagram. Followers says she's like thinking. Ah Dean already has more instagram followers but I'm more likely to stay with Connor long-term. I could have more instagram followers from that bats should've been his argument not like Uh Dean like how do you know it means actions speak louder than words so yeah she she picks teen. Those quick you know not for the long term gaines one for the games like the way he was talking. He's just like I don't know if he can't pull off serious. There's just what he you were saying. It's not what she feel bad for him at all seem to do oh connor honor connor. I felt bad for him. I know that like Dean now Connor. I did feel bad for her because she it's like she did lead them on she tried to. I know it seem family. She was super into Connor and then dean comes back. It's just she could drop him like that. I would feel good if I was connor and he kind of mentioned that that how like yeah at the wedding I had a conversation with insert name here and that could have been great but then Caitlyn called me over and when let me talk to her anymore and and like now yeah and in he brought up a good point so like she had just been saying like how she was so glad that he wasn't there and you know he shows up teen shows up and then it's like Oh. I guess that's why I wanna be with so I think the thing that made me feel. The most Afrikaner was just how there was this whole crew of other cast members sitting there analyzing the whole situation in front of him. Just not this not okay. That's not cool. That's cool you just you didn't break up with you did not break up with this guy right. You didn't break. She didn't break up with them. No totally makes the guy who left her at her birthday. Eh the whole cast being okay rooting rooting Dina's Ceylan on more so than connor was up setting in many ways. Yes we did get another her car the Swiss four Chris and Katie. They have some things to work through so it's good for them to get a date they crashed someone's wedding so. I don't know how you would feel about you know you're in the planning stages but you invite some random bachelor comparable to like have their date during your wedding. No I like all the attention to be on me. Yeah makes sense what kind of fun though they had like giant skeletons statues they had sparklers really like to see another couple of just randomly making out in the middle of my reception hoping that's a good thing you know especially when the TV cameras on them and not me what kind of kick back to these Mexican in Families Skit for inviting Paradise members to their celebrations. You think anything I would hope that'd be nice yeah so we have them. We have back back at the resort. Connors crying Brian Blake is the one to comfort him so like knows where you know where he's been and then we also see the creed chase that creates like pineapple woman or so so full disclosure. I was kind of watching these episodes with one eye on it when I not on it because I was also working. I just look over at a certain point may see someone making it with a pineapple and I was like what why have I hitched my wagon to this show pineapple girl twenty-seven God. I mean like didn't they try and get mad. Don't make it to teach them how to how to make oh because apparently only still still dealing with that from Vermont Stein Support Connor. He's really sad because he sees Matt Donald Getting all the girls and offer him and then he's waiting for someone to come down the stairs and we have rev Ian Review on Ravina Ravine Ravin apparently so hard to say just revlon. I think it's just that nobody eighty. Ainhoa zerbi cares so they don't bother to do so probably so and she pulls Matt Donald Right away. What is the big appeal with Matt. Donald is just that you know. He's attached just assume he's unattached but or did they. Where was he at the wedding and everyone was talking to him. Zoonotic he was at the wedding was he had heard that it was like all the people who are you're trying to get on the beach. We're also invited to that wedding. That's why Chris and Crystals said so brooks was there doesn't look like Brooks is going to be showing up so I was soon that if Matt Donald hadn't been paradise got that he would would've been there. Maybe that's why maybe they know like knew him from that otherwise. I'm not getting I'm not getting the math donald thing but he does like kind of turn her down and say that you know he's kind of sorry juggling two women. He doesn't Oncho go three gone. Give Him who else she took but she eventually eh lambs on connor who is more than willing to get out of there and go on a date. I remember nothing a not. Even a single second of this date. Just why would care did not see the creepy balloon animals clown nope okay good all the better for that because he was very clear on scooters segues or something like that on each I none of got registered whatsoever and they made up a little bit. I think you turning my attitude around that. They get back to the beach and he's like actually seen on good. Thank you you're GONNA but she don't loan yeah yeah ceremony spoiler alert but I just again sorry yeah so. They have their date not a lot of chemistry but it was more like hey you're available double and I need distraction so that was that I was just. Kinda surprised to see her there in general because it's Kinda late to have people that we really don't. I remember it all but that's paradise for you. Just eat in general so late ranchos in at the end right. No no one cares and everyone's like Oh. I don't care if this person finds love because I don't care about them because I don't know who they are this season where we're just like. Why are people still coming because at the same time it's like. There's this whole like shift in paradise all of a sudden where it's like well. You better leave now. If you're not madly in love because that's what paradise is about so. Why would someone show up one day before they're supposed to get engaged. It doesn't make sense either in just text me. It's random. He's really allowed right now. Remember the fond memories we have the first season of Bachelor in paradise be he covered and we get to this point. Where like wait. Is there more to this or are we missing something and it turns out when asked us what it is yeah. I was thinking about. How are you the one like. It's just so neat because everyone like we've talked about how he wished. I'd like these couples. That like are are coupled off. I can't and Dylan like why not just leave and go to the honeymoon resort or whatever go off campus and then it'd be cool to have everybody stick around and then see like okay who is really the perfect matter who like mix it up a little bit more and see more couplings and people going on dates with different people or some kind of challenge or some kind of other thing to make it more interesting parts the end because it's just like okay. These people aren't strong enough. They just mutually decide to drop off. These people are madly in love for the time being they might get engaged. It's just so odd but you know we've been saying this for literally five years at this point and that's still can't seem to wrap my head around it. We've been saying for five here is that it gets super clunky at the end and I don't even know how to fix it and then it's like okay my ardy left but what if like someone that was coming later was like his soulmate but they never got to meander just so weird that like just kind of pick who gets picked it could be either starting cast or not and yeah so speaking of those type of couples we have chased an Angela Tesla and we have Christina Blake talking bought like Oh they're moving really fast and because you know they started on day twenty really because they know each other amount of yeah. I Guess Yeah They Matt Already and then Christina Doc are trying to figure things out and lake is really convinced that she's the one and this is perfect but yeah we find out maybe maybe not let's see his mother things have which has flipped the last three and a half minutes that now blake wants Christina as the mother of his children. He can totally see it now. It's now in Canada has no other option sense. Help me figure out what Christina's motivation I can't. I can't figure out any of this. The issues that we're to rational to understand why any of this is happening at all yeah because he plans a mini date for her. You do and then right away. She's kind of like Yeah I. I don't think I'm going to leave. I'm going to have the state with you if not took on my day when I got here that was just a friendship day and yeah so he she leaves then he's finally not willing to stick around even though you know he could have waited and maybe somebody somebody else would have shot up. Finally he decides to leave and yeah they just both take their separate transport out of the resource and Lake says he's learned a lot but at what cost at what cost what is like what did he learn. I don't know not to go to stagecoach but then he like just have an instagram posts. It said he's still going to stage coach next this year so burgers instagram silence. Yes for that yeah. It was like a hash tag or something like have still going to stagecoach like Dr have regrets or something so I don't know if what he'd learned. I makes one of us. I regret let me see ended up. We're here to save. Paradise for me is an understatement. I have no one to blame but myself for that. It's not easy putting yourself. Now your mistakes out there for the world to see no matter the differences differences all of us had on each always have respect for each and every one of you being brave enough to be yourselves and chase the love. We all feel deserve. Never forget that we are all human not characters characters on television. I WanNa thank those of you that have sent me kind words and encouraging messages. Those have helped more than you'll ever know. I hope that this is not the end of my story and I can look back at the summer and be grateful for the lessons learned and the friends made Hashtag be kind hashtag. I'm still not gonNA stop dancing stake. I'm still going to stagecoach and hinge Jason Partick Chimes and love the message love you but don't love the Hashtag maybe call in sick the stagecoach next year try what's the other one earning man or Coachella or Lollapalooza or South by southwest or that one that Boston always has in the street or our show guy or whatever it's Montreal or just like literally anything else whether it's a good good one called bottle rock music slash wine and food festival in Napa should he should I try something. New Late doesn't like country music dabuma imagine being states coach and seeing blake like he's just going for like the the Selfie to honestly just kidding me his brand now and I'm just kidding. It's going to be forty five years old that stage code like he'll just be there every year. It'll be on the bill pretty soon so yeah. That's where he's at Let's see we have tation J. PJ. They have a prom you know that he asked her apparently tation ever went to her wpro so they have that and then Demi and Christian also have we are we have now arrived to the only interesting heart of this entire episode slash week was that you know and I would like to if it's okay with you cover Monday and Tuesday evenings episode condemning Demi is going through eighth journey here and I you know I didn't mean to use the word journey but I think it's just the the most fitting thing here coming to terms with their sexuality and coming to terms with the person she is in a committed relationship and how that style may not fit with Christian style and it doesn't really in Christians very touchy and Lovey Dovey and Demi is just not that because she grew up you know I'm not seeing that and so it's not something she's used to so. She's struggling with that and some of that struggle is also well. She doesn't want people to think she's you know judge. Yeah you know she doesn't want to be judged in you know it just it was really interesting addressing to look into the mind of Demi and I think she did a really great job at articulating her feelings. Why is she was feeling that way so we could really yet into the story with her yeah because it started out like Oh. I don't like seeing Christian be flirty with other girls here and you know she's just like putting her arm around them complimenting them and then they showed a few little clips of that that was bothering Demi but then she would like go go into it more and it's like well like I don't like. TDA but you know it's more worried what everyone watching. This is going to think this out to you know. This is the first time in public with it so at that point we you know we didn't know that about. Demi about her sexuality and so it's like she's using in this show as a platform as well to become public about it so that to think about all that going through ahead plus just her friends they're worrying about like if it's making them uncomfortable for any reason and just all these and cheese analyzing it in real time and saying like this isn't certainly fair to Christian. I don't want it to be like this but then being able to articulate it not only to the camera but also to Christian leader onto on their date she picked up that was not quite herself so I was really interesting to watch and really see the difference in their relationship chip and how connected they are and because it features one normal person who isn't in this franchise and that's a huge huge thing Um yeah I also thought it was fun to see like how Christian like has gradually become like more comfortable in paradise like even though she is not part of it like just like she seems like she's finally like having fun there and I kind of like to see that kind of that fly on the wall seem language yeah and everyone loves her and I like her almost not like cuddling teaming touchy with the other people because it just means she's like forming even just like friendship relationships with them to see her fitting in so yes they have their with the sacred cleansing ceremony and we always get something like that Carleen something like that seem very meaningful to them and help them connect more and yeah that was where we ended up there fair and then let's see we had that little segment at the end where we find out that that Donald Cells Yikes for information about that. Thank you very much crispy. Kelsey had the new tagline at the bottom. I think it said literally every season of her and then he had one that said hoping this is one one. Does he notice an episode two. Gb Jay had a new intro. Yes yes I did. I did notice a new one no clue no. Let's just remember what the other one was the other it was different. I think the first one he was like just flipping his hair back like venues head down past an his hair back and this was like hitting his face with a flip flop all right so oh shit. Why don't they just go without a long. I was listening to some podcast. I I don't know it's one might have been and and maybe they're talking about like cover. Intros aren't as good as they used to be and that's the fun maybe kind of machine and that could it be because of the Ilan Gail effective not being running the show anymore so that could be Kinda. See there's not as much wacky business and what you used to have just missing like kind of a bit of a charm to it. I guess yeah I mean they do like little like the problem was kind of fun and like we have some kind of funny flashbacks at times their star those amusing moments but it's not quite like talking coons that was funny on episode two was like Hanane Hanane Dylan just walking up and the cast's informing them. Oh Yeah Blake left casino left like hits. The never like come away from the boom boom room ever because that's just where they just never around anyone else at any point. I know there's another thing where somebody was like. Wait this person left when and I was like three days ago in their own world all right so who who left next. Should we talk about honoring. I don't know where this okay. What are your thoughts on this because that is a weird hotel room nicer than my house so yeah. I guess I just I get why he was so anxiously like all right five minutes four minutes three minutes. I'M GONNA go. I'm GONNA go guys. I get why he wants to leave but why have this time stamp on it like with. Nina's knock down the stairs and five minutes. I'm I'm GonNa go home like was he threatening the producer's like hey like. Let's get it moving. I'M GONNA head out or I don't know. It was just seemed weird because or did they tell them like yes probably not. GonNa come so as well go. I don't know what happened but it was weird anyway. He left and then one second later at least in editing time. Whitney did come down. Do you remember any aw only because she started Minnesota from the driver even know he's like. She's from seasons John's few seasons. We didn't know next season or anything assistant. I don't know I don't want to happen but she laughed laugh too. She was like Oh congressman here and everyone's like yeah you like wanted to meet. You and she's like okay well. I'm just GonNa like beaver and then go make out with him in his hotel room so weird so do come back to the show or are. They done like seeing anything else from. I think if you officially leave your you're gone. That's what I accept. Remember when Julia with a tax free me back. I don't remember that issue followed someone home or something then they came. No she left because nobody was there for her. Then she came back back and then she dated Mikey so we are yeah. I mean when this whole thing that was going on. I thought like I was Kinda. Just rooting green or hoping that it was like well connors going to watch this on TV and see that Whitney still on the beach and I thought they were just like purposely like Kinda and it's just like our economy or leave because you know like letting them go so that he could see. Here's an idiot and then. I didn't think that they let me leave you now. I thought it would just be kind of like a joke jokes on connor and I thought that would have been more comedic instead of like Oh. She's going to chase after him. Civil like romantic ah I would've thought that was funny. Just let her like okay. I guess I'm GonNa go on a date with Matt. Donald Guess they don't have anyone here. You know she got to go back and yeah the Nicest Hotel Room I've seen. It was like an apartment gorgeous stove kitchen. I off full kitchen crazy so yeah if I guess if people are stuck there before going on the beach. It's not that bad that's where they're holed up up oh and then Dylan Hannah when to a birthday party for their. This is a new one Haley a a kid. I know I don't even WanNa talk about that. I'm not talking about this. I refuse what did he do. They know they're happy together green. Have you ever meet at a child's birthday party. No advice needed children's birthday party. Thank you for respecting me and then he's like shouting like I love Hannah but I he's like Han. She's like Dylan which is my name is Hannah. My name is Glenn Great my great great well. We got a little bit of a clue into what's going on in the boom boom room because she said she is literally head over heels for Dylan so amy the most scandalous ever sorry everyone how I really. I just took me surprise. They also said they'd love you at this birthday party. Gray love is it's just that was the date chosen for them. I guess they already got their romantic eight the first time and this is what they had leftover no mm-hmm yeah so who else do we have oh so everyone's kind of at this point just having their little conversations and and we had a little another mini date jp Jay and tissue even ever get a real date only been back at the resort. I can't think of anything because he went on those two other dates bleak so I don't know if they ever got their own day. I can't recall but they've had a lot of mini dates. It's on the beach and so this was like teasha deciding to paint J. J. Titanic Style and he's a denim speedo is the Canadian Seato Tuxedo Batter Buffalo plod. Oh yeah that'd be one so he's like in love with her. Yes but then value what happens amy because I'm still a little confused if I'm being honest with everyone so what happens later yeah yeah so they have their. Everybody's just kind of having their little like talk doc to decide. Are we gonNA stay. Are we going to go that. Hosts rose ceremony is they do have a rose ceremony so right okay. Let's look through the Roseanne rainy right okay so they do have a real ceremony. Chris gives the speech of at this point. You have to be ready to be committed. It'd otherwise there's no point in staying here. I'm thinking okay. There's probably some of these guys that should just like not even do the rose ceremony but they are into this even Lucas. Tom Decides to go for at this point which we've never seen them speak shot. I guess that's what he tried to do. Oh Ooh so now we find out what happens if someone turns down arose. Chris Harrison just makes fun of you basically INS like well. That's that's hosted before. Is there anyone else who wants to accept his rose and then everyone just ignores them and then he Chris just goes well. I guess you're going home. League was matter how this was portrayed on on the show I guess what don't care and then I chase actually had like a good comment shockingly for chase. I know your saved you but with some of their editing choices because if I remember correctly from I'm being there it was all law or overly what is going on with this cast because then I saw Mike Johnson hosting some like a screen shot of how chase is trying to like an influencer and get free a free apartment in Ice Ruutel aw and he's like L. O. L. Chases doing so yeah. No I mean it's maybe that's because he moved on with Angelo and Mike had been dating Angela. There's no love lost their you and I are. I'd say extremely low level influencers would did you ever post where you live in order to. You know make money. It's weird like I I wouldn't but now I'm thinking back. I think Peter from Rachel season was posting about some luxury apartments. He was living in Oh. Come join the community and why aches so I am God I don't. I barely want people knowing what town Lewin yeah like. I guess you get a free like in house apartment or something you know yeah. I guess I guess it's different like Oh. I'm just here like one weekend a month. Anthony Yeah no not for me captain for me then so breathe turns down. Lou Tease turned. I'm thinking okay. Mattie like her like heard. We're going to be like nothing that strongly about either one. He's gotta go for his supermodel. Bree over Sydney. She accepts at this point. She accepts throws yeah. Then we have the obvious ones Dylan Dylan Cana- Chase Angela Clean Coal Demi Christian and the big Kinda cliffhanger part of the rose ceremony was is Chris going to well no. Maybe I feel real. Sorry this later on by Chris and Katie so we say goodbye to Sydney Rav and Haley. Oh Haley left to Gosh I didn't notice lower. Yeah has not into these. No one judge me yeah so very quickly. After this breed just tells donald like yeah. I think you made the wrong decision decision. Why even like accepted at that point like I don't know it was just weird like both of them why why added these people that are going to break up the next day except the rose the night before this is what I don't understand. I don't know I don't know I don't know. I don't know this is very weird. Structure The show so there I like super-quick break up right after this rose ceremony let me see like cuts the next couple chase and Angela and he's like Oh. Something intangible can't put my finger on it. Let's let's She's like smiles. Nods Okay Yep by than who do we have next clay. Nicole will and Nicole is just really trying to get him to like admit something like give her something to go off of and I think she had said like Oh. I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA ask him how he's feeling right away. So are you starting to fall a little bit. Are you starting like just so desperate to find out something from him and I don't think he gave her the best answer on oil like I I can see myself maybe in the future looking into falling into amorous ties ation with you. ooh maybe perhaps taxes together. I mean I like seeing a house together. All we can look at other. People's kids not together but we can do that. Yeah very fringe level women there. You can see a picture of my mom saw so Nicole's like thought it was enough but yeah it didn't seem that way to me then we get jp Jane Teasha so here's where JP J. See. If you can break Estan he tells her. He's in love with her and she's like Oh. That's a lot some big hug. Their relationship is so weird to me like he's been going pretty hard to see from European. So you WANNA be with yeah. He did actually hold a lot there though because he was like I can see his dancing at our wedding. I hope to you dancing with you at my wedding or something like that so maybe it was just like all too much like she wasn't because I guess we don't see any of the fantasy suites going on yet. Let alone cancer forever happens. I'm so angry at the reunion right. After is this going to be three hours two hours on all. I'm not okay yeah. She's just she's is not there yet. Then he okay well all right walks off and then she j P J and she runs after him and so then I thought they were getting back together and he sweeps off her feet like lifts her up and then I'm like wait she regretting it but now they just Kinda hug again. she says I'm sorry cry and it shows the flashbacks of them like having all the fun that they had but yeah they leave separately they break up and then we have Kadian Chris Cisco painful to watch. I'm not feeling too strong about them. Just does not seem great all right. He's just not very enthused sues at any point when he's talking to her. He looks like he's pained. He doesn't want really want to be there and I feel like she really wants to force it to happen mm-hmm and it's like they just don't seem like they're having that much fun together. It seems like a lot of just like pay where we add. Are we good well. The one thing she said that really worried me was that she said something like. How great would it be if you know fifth times like he chooses me after all these other times that didn't work that would mean. I'm the exception to the rule and I was like oh. She's she's quoting. He's just not that into you. She's like living in like com- land so ever think you're the exception to the rule. I know what happened that movie movie once by like look at patterns. Listen to what he's saying. Yeah that's yeah we'll throw you in the wrong direction so many times better to just be like no probably this red flag is for a reason so far they're still together right now and heading to the fantasy suite date so so okay let's to sum up. which couples do we have left now? We have hand and Dylan. Where do you think they're headed. Come to Geezer land south and also engagement town yeah so to you dummy Christian. I love them together. I don't know if they're ready for fiance. Tim Yeah then we have clan Nicole heartache. I think they're going to break up. Oh really you just it doesn't seem that into it. I know that like they already call your boyfriend girlfriend up at the like in Mexico or Reunion. Take the day is going to be like no. I think he'll be ah he'd be more no and she wouldn't like she's known for like crying crying and I just see that he's breaks her heart. You know maybe she'll get more halo tab yeah and then Kristen Katie Yeah and then okay. You're me out. We're we're looking at the previews and we see you at least one hand. That's not Hanadi colored. Let's say it would probably be no. It's the hand is the skin tone of Teixeira at an Katie do you you think it's more likely to be Katie and Chris or do you think it's Patia. Jj are going to have a comeback or or it's just like with Colton. season are they show yeah random ringing and it's not really yeah maybe tation 'cause they also show the preview of shape J. getting down on one knee at the union and tastes jp Jay or John and then we saw that with Dean like and he just gave a key or something so. I guess it'd be as in so I don't. I don't know maybe Chris I wanna be done with this. I want to end on a good. He's already gotten engaged after paradise. Right like that on paradise but so we know he's willing plane ticket engaged and maybe break it off and be yeah. Maybe maybe ever get fantasy sweeping beat then everything turns round so then we have the little ending segment with a reteaching Matt Donald how the modeling technique but I never knew about of saying the word Prune and sneezing. We know from top model. How did you assess her skills. She is the most bland individual I've ever encountered. She's very beautiful. Yeah golly she boring and Matt Donald just kept calling her supermodel which she clearly was acquitted by yeah and he she immediately broke up with him like yeah. You know what this isn't working. I don't think she's loving being called. I think she said like seemed like that's what you're interested in like. You're calling me a supermodel. I want something gene more than that. We don't see enough of her. Did seem very bland. supermodels like very specific level of fame. I don't think breeze is that right now. She's like a mild bottle. Yes so all right. That's where we're at for these two episodes. It's kind of like you just left wanting more because we thought we'd be seeing a lot more the resolution. We just saw breakup so we don't really know until next week. I just wish we could fast forward to all the breakup and all of the fantasy sweets. I know I know yeah. I don't think we will see much of the fantasy sweets. I think believe me along John. We'll see what happens when they meet on the we're so you can tell we're both at the point where we've been doing this for five straight street and we're just so tired yeah where it's like okay then we find out who the officially announce enough with the Bachelor Oh. I wonder who it could be. Let's just move on UH yeah. Oh God what questions did our audience have healy well. I was again onto lazy to send them to you this week so I got the honor of rating them. Let's look Mike Notifications on twitter. Hereon Duke Dude Sued Doodoo Robert Studio said if there's ever an episode I needed and GP recap strong underscore recap. It's this one interrupted three times for storm you to truly do the Lord's work. Jesus will judge me at the gates of Heaven and see if that's the case okay here. We Go Matt Schmeltzer Sir Question for the pot. If preceded never truly wanted a relationship with Blake. Why does she sabotage relationships. He tried to get it because she was jealous. She she she just wanted to these tension. Because at the point that lake finally wanted to hear it was like no more guys were coming down so so connor made his choice I mean. She could've tried to get with connor after if she was really interested in him. I think she probably just got sick of being like nobody's first choice and she definitely you know didn't want Blake to stay with Caitlyn. She wanted to stick around but this point. There was no incentive for her to get that friendship grows from him anymore so aw yeah it'd be interesting to see what happens on their union between the two of them and just how would it play candles. Being under union has now he's. You seem like everybody talking about him. In session tells me it's going to be not well not eric and now let's go to my email. If you WANNA email us for next week's finale episode you can email at Bachelor hap- at gmail.com and if you due during the off season one email as nice things like your cat your dog your red. You're lizard your small. Roadway C- BECCA and Garett new even hotter because I'm going to cry from Minot. I love it so much a your snacks. Mir positive affirmations took our trip. Anything I'd say except random shows a watching that offseason interesting folks you've read. I recently joined good reads so so find me on there anyway. Bachelor HAP- Edgy Elizabeth emailed us. Oh Gosh sorry she signed off death breath but her her emails sorry about this Elizabeth with an ass. Not it's sad what fun for the love of all things Holy Holy. Why is there yet another episode of Pee that last night's episode would be the same and was looking forward to getting too too. She's later email me back at four hours more hours by weep back but no they have to join a union more. Maybe it's just me but the last couple of episodes have been so boring actually slept through half of last night's episode and found. I couldn't can care less what happens anymore. Nobody's making you watch. I got that now. I am invested so much time in the show. I have to see how it ends. The most Compelling Cup last night was a toss up between TESA J. J and Chris and Katie -tations heartbreak over breaking Jay. BJ's hard was so real a believable as far as Chris Katie. I agree with Chris over treatment of Kenyan teniente indecisiveness. She's gorgeous kind of him. What else does he want. Do you think that any of the four main couples will make it outside of the I p. I personally do not op but looking forward to hearing your thoughts. I'm especially looking forward to hearing Wilson Doug. Stay so this week's episode. At least we have their union show to look forward to looks like we'll get some good job of their sincerely back all right. Do I think any of these couples are GonNa get got. I would love it Hannah and Dylan outside but I'm wondering if she's just riding the wave like Dylan's famous for her or that's kind of what I'm thinking but I think maybe she's smart enough to know that being in a relationship from the bachelor is linked the best way to go for these things look at Jaden tanner yeah MHM that those are the ones that I would think most likely. I hope I can make it. Oh Yeah Yeah. It's it's like keep forgetting about them because it's like they seem so different from the rest of the cast not because same sex couple but just like they were a real life couple before and like Christians normal part of the world like yeah. I think they will make it for sure so clinical. It's funny because I felt really strong with them at the beginning now. I just don't have now arriving. Yeah seems a little bit yeah that is likely and then it looks like J. J. My get back together something like they seemed very like from that preview anyway so maybe proposing get back together or something like that on maybe but so weird to be like seeing how he was about. Derek A and it was just odd to me that she was into at all after that left for us to decide. I you know I guess opposites attract all right. Let's let's go to facebook will Halston the aforementioned which is more embarrassing having four girls who would rather go home then accept arose commute or getting dumped on national TV chase of all people so it's interesting because Luqueno I so I I think at this point Sydney thinks oh that's probably me the rose is where like more serious than with free so I don't know if you it's like if you want us to ground but there's really no incentive to stick around at that point so yeah chase gosh one hard path which other total losers from the distant past of this franchise. Would you like to see return to be Ip and have a Democrat Tehran crispy Goski. I'm pretty mad we see. I mean like I'm so mad. Though we like saw brooks was is going to be there and we're like. Oh Wow like some old school like and he like was but was it weird. Maybe we saw who was there and it was like you know what I'm going to take pass this year. See you next year. Maybe who else from way back when Justin Feinberg is thinking along the same lines as you who decided to get idea to invite bachelor paradise dozen shoes kid's birthday party excellent Jennifer Jones powering hands on most likely to least likely to get engaged by if I said number one me let's frank. Let's rank them. Okay let me I don't know who's left any Martin K. so going a number one Hannah Dylan number two I guess yeah it was claiming that was planned beforehand so Chris and then give me Chris and Katie just on based on the previews for Nicole Coal and whatever his name is five. Jj and Tanisha could come back and then who else went near apple okay. Maybe they'll get engaged in the lobby of the hotel. It's so magical sorrows yawning WANNA yawn into into the microphone anyway. What else is going on here. pretty much. That's it. I'm done takes yeah. I got much excited. We're recording this. Yes all right everyone. We're cutting lane. We had stuff going on so we can do it. I work the Law Samy. What were you doing last night ooh doing. I just had a family conflict family in town so your family wasn't fighting like it wasn't a family conflict. It was like a cry a conflict of recording. Yes yeah so we were busy. Sometimes gets in the way you know like. This episode was not that exciting so we were like oh my gosh. We need to talk about the story now yeah. How many times have I watched live less than three so doug. Who Says Hey can you please have a wedding pray? It's like the one on the show and then really spicing up dancing around vodka bottle I did. I don't see why can't do the second part. I feel like the only helpful advice blake could have given connor would be good escapees to stagecoach. I think that's a great point honor. Take over the in fact. I am better looking than Lucas back to. I'm more well-spoken than Matt Donald Fact Free. I'm not a placenta salesman. Do you think would have a chance with Free Doug. I think that the only only reason any of those guys had a chance with free is that they could have left led her okay there we go lead her to more screen time until you get a TV show maybe not let me know which it is most negatively represents males males klay thinking it was romantic tell. Nicole that she was his best friend on the beach the entire population of tastes high school not asking her to the problem or the Kitty face that JP Jay made spoiler. It's a kitty face. There are no. There's so many things to you. There's so many so so many things you just wish you could see. I was quite inspired by Katie speech Chris which further proof that she was asked ask though Christina would also earn high marks the fact that she seemed to go on the show for the sole purpose of creating as much shit as possible which I love how would it have been if the Spanish senior that only Nicole that understand with just about the fact that she should clearly pre-cup Clay yes interestingly translated the lyrics and the captions and they're kind of like. I hope you have patients with me or curiously in their situation. It's upsetting who is more over Paradise Chris Harrison when he told everybody to pack up or the producers when they made Whitney and connor how their day at the Stadium Hotel also bonus points to amy she doesn't impression of Connor saying the name. We've you over and over again and somehow also works in the word loser. Doug was is a big fan of your impression last week and he said he was like nearly crying office listening to know we're GONNA have one no matter what does like what with Klay do this what would connor and then He. He sent me something later that says sorry the the J. PG thing was the secrecy. Faso not kidding face sorry my Ra. I was like your impression wait okay. What are the terms again Whitney loser. Is there any and listening Whitney over and over again and work in these air okay if it doesn't come down the stairs. I feel like a loser. I need to see Whitney. We talked at the wetting and like we I. She looked at me. I looked at her. Ceylan interrupted men Whitney and even five seconds if she's not coming down all these beautiful that was great that was great. I don't think we can add anything that that's it so I guess redoing another week of this see next week thought we were going to be on vacation told Matt Liguori that I could probably talk to him on a podcast about something sometime because my wheat may schedule. It'd be a little more free. It's not matt made it this far will your organs from talk about these doing a challenge pod on Donning Colin Network because I was on their draft. He wants to talk to me about it and all of the bad choices I mean in that draft on Oh when I do challenged draft I go for pure are chaotic mess. That's what I'm aiming for on that one. I think that makes sense yeah. People are people are people. They're always mad at me that I don't take it as seriously as them. But who could you know okay text. Eh whoever number to me do so about whatever you want again. Please no Dave Dix appreciate it greatly all right well. We'll get all our answers next week who is engaged who the bachelor so and instead of watching next week's episode what you guys should do still listen to our podcast obviously downloaded it on all of your friends and families phones and computers etc wash great British baking show and said let's back great.

Top Chef: All-Stars L.A. | Season 17, Episode 5 Recap: Bring Your Loved Ones to Work

"Hello and welcome everybody to shoot no start that again tyre forgot our thing that in we started from there. Yeah I go to one to one unpack your and say. Guess please stay. Please don't leave me. I'm desperate. We all know that. My Name's Hayley strong and I am here again. Not alone thankfully. I'm joined by some test. Wonderful I'd say almost family members at this point. I feel like we're calling each other over metro. Ck and s link. Josh introduce you first all the time. Because you're always the one to just kind of be like I am here. I am Josh. I'm here like to make sure that people know forgotten. I want you to know Josh. I'm here I welcome to emily's sour dough that's in the corner shutout so that sour dough starter powered. Oh are you calling Kurth that the day that I may we have more people here to Antonio Sorry? I talked before I was introduced. A bad idea. I'm sorry I apologize. I take it back. I won't talk again. This entire podcast. You guys don't have any impression. Tonio. It'll be me. I would like to hear that. Actually that's not working just yet but you wanted to talk as your needs to drink some more of my smoothie and then Mike Bloom. Hello WHO's this? I can't remember the voice. Tell my Metro Wireless Crystal Clear. Reception is not picking up the melodious towns of your voice. You know this this thing. That's sponsor is a giant green blob metro. Pcs You would think that they would like edited. The parts of who is exactly or they just really want to throw people under the bus. I don't know I I always wonder I mean this is the concept of the mass singer right and its entirety. Can you recognize somebody by your voice so I mean whatever is good for Kim Jong Bid for top chef? I suppose and guy's voice I can always recognize. Clark I Hilo officially lost it. Mrs doubtfire got thrown down the stairs. I do oh goodness. A run by routing would be a good quickfire challenge. Actually do Elsie K late. We had Tom Cooking the food this time next time. He's just throw fruit attempt and use that to cook. Whatever comes out if they have after they go to an orchard in California and make some fruit based cocktails to match their dishes after the skip right to Elsie Cave. But was anybody else super attracted to Tom. Cooking steak or is that just me? Did you watch what you were hungry? Oh I'm always hungry when you're living in a bit here. Haley wasn't tom particularly scrumptious when he basted that. Rabei right out of the woodfire oven. I'd let him based me all inside. So yeah so we're here. Everyone's doing reasonably. Well I believe and we're here to talk about another a wonderful episode of chest. I thought this episode is a lot of fun. I love a good family visit. I cried way less during this then the survivor family. All much fewer toddlers and babies and the Upjohn. Well I think it would be pretty great you know. I don't know how Asher would describe a dish to me. Probably turn out about as well as Brian Bowl. Taj Effort did but I think it would have been a fun little wrench to throw into the works. Do you think he knows the difference between fish and chicken at this point Brian Votes. Oh I think we have been feeding Asher. He has had a both and he had a particular liking for Salmon. They distinguished between salmon and chicken. But I have not done the baby taste test yet. Maybe I can do that. While glow grow evermore insane during our time in Quarantine. Piggly is ask her. What so fancy. He's he's a little boost them up a little bit. We've been trying to. We've been taking part in some of these services that have like these gourmet baby foods that are the weirdest mixtures it'll be like we have plumber and rice and lettuce like they just take one from every part of the antiquated food pyramid and mix it together and some sort of puree but you seem to be enjoying it and at least produces fun colors not necessarily on one end and the way going but for my call here you're supposed to eat the rainbow anyway so like a colorful plate. I is supposed to be a healthy place. Yeah and I think he's he's been enjoying in and we've been able to you know. I personally grew up a very picky eater. It wasn't until I got to college that I really was like. Oh Yeah I can try foods besides butter noodles and skinless chicken breast so. I think we're trying to really start them off early to make sure he does not fall following his father's footsteps in a myriad of ways. That's just one of many I agree. I thought this was episode though. This was a step up from the previous episode. And I think it's always good to introduce family members because it also brings out a different side of the chefs but it wasn't in a way of like like I think. One of the first podcast. We did as a group. Here was the top chef Boston episode when the family members came to cook and I remember all of us being a little nervous of like. Ooh somebody going home because their family member bits of cooking so that seemed to be a little bit more of a step back. We're like yes maybe the quickfire. You're only as good as the way. Your family member describes the dish to you. But it wasn't as indicative to your elimination overall as to you know how your partner the person who ended up signing the NDA to come over to L. Cook with you ended up performing. You had kind some variation in terms of the knowledge and capability of the family member. Also I think I do think there was potentially some the dish that you got was going to potentially. I'm sure some of the dishes are a little bit easier to recreate than others. Yeah I know what that's like. That's not that difficult to yeah that was basically AF. Yeah and the fact that I was happy that it was a quickfire just gave somebody a chance of immunity versus the elimination challenge. Where I I was confused. A little bit about how people would like you to make an entire products in in a was okay. You're really gonNA kind of lean into you. Know sauces or condiments yeah. It was a cool challenge. I liked I quickly understood the way to approach based on just like with a started preparing something so okay. This is neat. You know. It's a good concept when like so like the goal is to get the most tickets and you as a consumer. You only have one ticket to give to a chef and like putting myself in positions like these really good with that one ticket and even Tom like when when Tom is complimentary towards everyone on the whole you know that it. It was apparently a really good of him being like this is hard stuff and a lot of them rose to the challenge and I like I like even compared to like. We had something similar to season thirteen when we had the whole. Taco dude situation of like create your own restaurant idea an answer by dish but I like this better because it's a little more granular in the case of Jensen. Love Sausages. Quite literally granular. But it's like greatness. Product highlight that product in a dish rather than highlighting concepts now. This was the family episode to because I felt like a lot of these people could work with their loved. One to be like what recipe really stands out for us in our household and then kind of make something based on that which was a lot of fine like we saw that with any for sure. it was just a fun little showcase. I guess I wanted to just quickly weigh. In on this with my Antonia Massaro impression just to give a little bit of an indication of how I felt about all the shenanigans from this challenge. I was surprised that rival Taj. Oh didn't get to call Michael Foale Taj. Oh that was odd to me. No I love I love the third voltage spot on by the way Josh. That was really good. It's like a little bit like you know. Not Quite as deep as Antonius Voice. I got a little bit of that. That Ohio Kentucky Border. Feel the strange thing. Josh grew a beard and then as soon as it was finished shrunk back into his face. Why we're saying Fifty Thousand Dollar Patriots. Show up video chat split but I think it was that good on like third Taja because it's sort of like I don't know if my goal Tahoe Super Punk Rock and tense and Brian. Volta Joe is the definition of paste. Is the third like the baby. Bear is the third one in the middle here of being just right. I mean it's all the siblings sisters. The goldilocks sure. I kinda scandalized. By referring Taj. Yeah I mean. He's the glue we always love. Glue on top chef. So I think that's my full. Tasha respect for him but but really. I thought you made a good point about the families because we saw Gregory of course win the challenge and he said like I grew up eating this food from aunts and grandmothers and mothers and this is something that I am very familiar with. I Cook dinner like this with my mother at the James Beard. House like this is something that I've done and then I'm familiar with and so that seemed to go really well and the same thing with many obviously like there was a familiarity. There that was talked about so. I think that that goes well. Obviously not every one of these people cook with their significant other. Although some people were ringers right like some people worked in the food industry and some people were not it was. I didn't understand like I guess people just got to bring like whoever would sign the waiver. It was out. I don't know who who said that. Josh occurred or maybe Mike is that Hella works. I guess they were just like whoever you WANNA bring like. Whoever would show up if you wanted to? Knowing like how it works on survivor like survivor. You lay out a list of like three options for your family. Visit and all those people are going to sign. Nda's so they're not going to bring anybody out. Who hasn't been preapproved to something right? And I don't think top chef was like who would be good for Eric. Let's reach out to his wife and see think it's more so like because even in previous challenge even if it's participating challenge pretty much every season has had some sort of like family member visit as you can imagine they solve this coming. Maybe just not in the past that ended up being no it makes. It makes it really funny to think about like so they must have. They must have known that their family members their loved ones. We're going to potentially be tacked at some point this season of top chef and they must know once they're getting the phone. This is like some kind of sponsored content of control so as soon as I made this like almost like deliberately just like screwing with the sponsor at that point. They definitely should have known what was going on. I think I've made. Maybe that was put on per ounce same budget the way. It was introduced if you felt this. The pacing was strange for me in that they called the relatives Pat mccaw. Okay everybody hang up. I have to explain the chancellor understand. Maybe it's because they want to like break into the time or the challenge. I've been like Oh my God. My sister is on the line but the little room for okay. Everybody stop talking to your loved ones. Let me refer a couple of minutes and then you can them back. My favorite instance of that is when Hadra cannon explain a challenge and left like shows does and then she came back with the weirdest pair of glasses ever thank you back and they just disappeared like what happened. Did they have to like Rauscher into the room and she didn't have time take classes. I think those were the shades that she was wearing outdoors later on. So maybe they like caught on the outside. They were clear frames. It was just so weird. She looked like Mitch Hedberg when she was outside. Rip Talking about how Michael Tasha was like. There's no one on my line let me. Why is this? Just the facts beeping noise. Oh wait it's my loved one. Coin my mom. The board Queens. She's coming from each both challenges. This week I thought they were clever is there. Is there out of the three dishes that the loved ones had to sample like the pork chop with pursuit? Upraised beans the yellowtail collar slash chicken and the hanger steak. Was there one that any of us preferred either describing are just eating. I would I would one beat the pork chop and those wonderful fennel fronds not for you not for you by Lake Prosciutto. Braised beans awesome chart ridiculous. I'm always down for so I would. I would really enjoy that. I would have gone for the anger struggling because we know how I feel about Famil- and under reported I'm not a huge fish as a dish. Fan like he's in the band. Yeah it has to be prepared in some like really really really interesting way like stuffed with baby. Shrimp or something. I don't know stuffed with baby. I had a tuna steak stuffed shrimp. You Baby Shrimp Exist these shrimp Dick van. Maybe Penny. Yeah can you get them through the rest of the store and literally but after the stake if you my dad license make this recipe where you take those baby shrimp? I think he cream cheese or may or something. Spur Fred auspey coated with you. Get like a pie plate. Your regular plate a Pie. Tin Coated with cream cheese. You put cocktail sauce. Sprinkle literally a couple of cans of the baby shrimp on top and you use it as a cracker spread. Heard what babies do you like to eat? I do like my view on this metro. Pcs Line save on the other line. That's fine rate and we don't do be. I do. Baby Ice Cubes Aka Water. Just imagine curbing on the other line being like I don't know what this is. There's no baby involved here. I don't know some sort of adult animal was involved in this. I want to follow the Kurt. Scott such a great complexion. He's eating children all day. Kurt so you think. Ice Cubes are mature water. Ice Cube melts. Then what? What's that process of the liquid water because it's like it's been hardened by life it's gone down some things it's cold benefit melts. It's like now it's like it's regressing back to. Its youth needs to know more so think isis water that went through. Ptsd of like Shit. It's become more hardened and frozen to the times. Then maybe you melt it down but it takes a very high temperature. A very extreme situation. Where does the steam if it into all this go were of the water team is it goes to Stewart? Now I'm scared. I'm scared of team later later. It condenses hanging in your in your pipes in your home. Have you ever had that? Oh yeah that's annoying water goes I could imagine now. Like new or ruth racial come onto the show and be like. I really got an essence of a water ghost over the steamed dumplings. Why are you GonNa hit on the Mike? I I mean like. I just think that you don't need to get to flowery with your language when it comes to top chef and I think she's done a much better job on. What would tom be more natural? But like when you come on you're like this reminds me of a bucket full of memories from a well of my past like yours. We all went to Liberal Arts College. Okay like we understand what you're trying to do here. This winter him one time last year got really drunk. And then I know but like in this in the seventies when I'm drunk thing is to like a comment on people's instagram's and like all of their photos and like comment like loving things and so I- commented on loosened per photos just like any deals you other show you put so great. Lake things are stop and buys commenting fakes. Ailing guys. That would be a fun challenge. What if you the family members were all drunk and they had describe the dish back as opposed to just a couple of them being drunk which mom housing the wine and just being like. This is A. There's a natural opening here Mike. I know you talked about what Tom Do. Is Back this week and Tom Actually did? The quickfire challenge different version of it. Can you just quickly describe what what happened this week on? What would Tom too? Yeah I'm trying to remember because he had put out two episodes but there were two this week. Yes if he did he did. Both the elimination and quickfire challenge. Missed the elimination. Well I did not finish the quickfire shelly. So amazingly sort of each other's blanks fire so basically. It was Neil Calling Tom. She had had it delivered. She had had the dish delivered. And so she was describing. It was it was not the it was not the same dish that everybody got. It was a little bit of a different preparation. There were some lentils involved. There was a lot of discussion about the lentils. Tom Was sussing out the color of the lentils. And he you face the size of the lintels on knowing which one to use so I think earlier when we were talking about family members being limited by whatever family members were able to describe if you watch. What would Tom do? I think what you see. A through line of how that communication can occur more proactively and also reactively right because he's listening to what she's telling him and he's using his brain to compete in the way that like. This is not a disk because it worked really well but in the way that because there was a time clock Leeann. Maybe didn't do when her mom said it's it's It's definitely soy and in. Her brain was like There's a lot of other Italian ingredients. Here what would the Italian equivalent of something like this be? She probably could have thread that needle and made the connection to Basaltic or you see with Tom is he's sort of sussing. That's stuff out real time saying okay. You're telling me there's lentils but they're brown okay so there's two kinds of lentils brown lentils and green lentils but these are brown but what size are they. Oh they're small well. Those are the green letters lentils that must mean that the green lentils cooked something to make them Brown and so you can see his process and clearly the chefs definitely at this right like the dishes were too close to the approximation to not have had that level of communication going on. But we didn't really see that in the quickfire we see it much more in the. What would tom do episode of how that would really work? My question is so. I'm surprised that more people did not do what meany did which was to essentially look over at your neighbor like. I found it very interesting that nearly everybody except for Brian Multi Gio yellowtail collar must have happened though right lake. I think yeah exactly. People must have been like peeking over and then some off camera consensus forms of life. This is exactly I feel like I'm obviously. I'm not a chef either but I haven't even heard of yellowtail collar select. That wouldn't be my first go to of a fish. I'd be like Oh. Fish is really good but to get like brand Zino out of that is. That's a surprise and Tasha sister works in the industry is that right. She's a chaff. I guess you're probably not working with a lot of the Ash. He's really been hands like there. Were there were like ten yellowtail colors in the fridge. Could they have used some context? I wonder why we need this much. Yellowtail color wonder. That's involved somehow. I was wondering about that actually. Like what's the spread like in the fridge in terms of shrimp spread like protein? Wise there salmon sitting in there where they're like how many other fish and then. What do you do with the access fish that have nothing to do with this challenge? Josh Wear Colours your tail collar my tail Kaur is. It's a blue collar. I'm no tail collar personally. I'm hard work. I work really hard from tale cower. Every day I mean you just pounded the pavement getting a blue collar on our prehensile tail color. I'm a no tail. Colin Powell Yourself. Up By your blue straps tail collar. Just a belt. These are good question good question. Do you pop the collar on anybody. Everyone does pretty well in this challenge except for Brian. We'll Taja though I do. I love brewed. Good is just zied with really funny how Nancy kept going and being like they missed the Balsamic in this like well you know we have some people here who don't have the most refined palate? I didn't think it was like this is a tough challenge. Where you're doing like the telephone challenge. And then you're being judged person who's who's like chef the original dishes and you only have thirty minutes like it's not as she's actually. This is not what we do at the restaurants. Yeah I will also say other highlight was definitely not going to be a great episode for Jen but Jen Sister Jessica believing that it was a chicken wings. Spatchcock chicken on the plane. Start this amazing work. Just amazing work. I mean what would that be? If those were the wings lay chicken using. Yeah Chicken Nuggets. Obviously it was very stupid. Mind dream is to dress like Nancy Silverton. When I'm older like hairclips in every team butterflied clips just said while we were watching it. How long do you think it takes for her to put each clip in her hair? I here's my theory that she doesn't take it out just sleeps in ever or like weekly. Do you think she one time. Put It in nineteen ninety five and she never could get them out and they know they're there someone. Tell Nancy I'm thinking maybe 'cause they're ponytails always back so taste. She's kind of lost feeling in her scalp. She has a Bun Bun Bun but like a backwards motion of hair. She's asked though she's her restaurants are off. We've been we've been we've been monitoring the one that's right next. Which got I'm forgetting the name. Is that the difference. Yeah okay more of like a full-scale restaurant and the other one's pizza. Food is unbelievable when this is all dunkirk. You'RE GONNA have to check out. Nancy fancy her new GELATO company. Is that a things. She talks about it on the show. That's right that's right. There are pictures of many pictures of Nancy. Sands hairclips on Google image search and I gotta say pretty awesome without the hairclips. Yeah I want to know that that food is really really great and so I I can imagine what everybody would. All the love runs or eating where we're delicious delicious dishes. And it's cool to see that like even like sight unseen even if they didn't get them perfectly as you guys are saying like basically everybody except for. Tiso did a pretty good job and even vol- Taj. You did a good job disqualifying nice to see everybody like performing really well under the context of a strange challenge. It was it was just felt like a really all-stars e quickfire like everybody just doing a pretty good job. And if that was really smart of Kevin ensure other people did this to his. I liked it. We got to see at least this profile of just how smart the chefs are in terms of before. You even eat anything. Describe to me what you see on the plate because I think I would have been tempted to be okay so he did to jump in and taste a person like say. What are the flavor literally described to me? The look is it wasn't just about creating the the the ingredient replicating the dish but it was also about replicating the plate to some extent as well. We saw a lot of the chefs captured. I think especially in the state. I was surprised it was just one way to steak and scenario. I mean good good work now sort of walk into any episode of top chef all stars. La and if you said like Kevin and Gregory when the challenge make sense. This is a typical episode of season. Seventeen but I mean for good measure. Yeah Yeah I mean this is also his third out of. I think. Five quickfire wins as well. So he's he's burning up right now but I think it also helps that he describes I think having a lawyer as a loved one. She is someone who is all about being detail oriented as possible. Now let me tell you. I can tell you how accurate that is very accurate a bit of Scandinavian in there. Yeah I who knows interiors true roots. Yeah I went to law school with the Swedish Chef Weird ordering his tail collar though something to behold I do think that that Kevin and his wife seem to have some really good communication but he said you know they go out to eat all the time and as much as he wants to credit her and fairly for her detail oriented nature. What he's doing of course you have to imagine based on what he does all the time. He's probably talking about the food that they're eating constantly. Like did you taste those rosemary? I can just picture Kevin that being the dinner conversation and his wife really picking up nearly down all those details and committing them so that their interaction there is really good. It's it was just still really interesting to me. How people pick through. They picked a because early on in the episode we had John Carroll Right the beginning right after we watched Melissa this wicked trick pull shot which I can't even still believe John had her her confessional about how her business partner was her fiance and I'm just surprised that like that wasn't the person that showed up even though obviously she has great relationships with their sisters. It seems like she talks about that on the show. I just don't know how they picked who who's available. And who wants to come at they sabotage John Carroll sabotage? I think my hottest take which I'll say later in the episode is I think that Jon Carroll sabotage not like there was a self quit but like I think she and Angelo as well by virtue of actually maturing and becoming more calmest people probably lacks the intensity needed to crush top chef that they had 'cause you could say the same thing about Lisa's well like all three of them markedly came in and they're like. I'm not going to be the same person I was last time. Is it coincidental at all three of them out early here? I don't think it's coincidental. I think you. I think you one of the things Jen says. When she goes like back in the day I used to say it was my way or the highway or like I had to have it my way and that drove me to become great. Now I'm just like if it doesn't go right. Sorry life's not over little. We'll we'll do something else later. So it's like that mentality that Angelo and Jen used to have that intensity the marked difference now. Don't think it's a coincidence that they're not performing as well as the first time around. Sure the cast is is tougher. There's no doubt about that but I don't think either of US coming coming into this competition. Thought they would be two of the first few boots. I think we expected more out of. I think that that's a really good tape. I think like there's there's sort of this idea of like if you've been gone for a long time like what is what is done to you in the years since you were on top chef in like what was your personality type when you're on top chef the first time and what were the lessons you learned when you are on after. I think that that was something we were talking about with. Angelo in our preview show like Angela's first season arc even was like well this guy sort of like roguish a whole. Who's like you know like massively talented despite like kind of a rough exterior and then in the second season that he's on right? Afterwards he kind of gets very lighthearted he has like the great bromance that era and like he's sort of like a like a softer version of that same character. And we're like well. What's the third iteration of like? He kind of had like the one point zero version of the John Teas are where that was his arc. Yeah the dramatic arc to animals have every kind. That's right that's right so like where does Angelo go from here and the answer is like you know the ark was over and I think maybe something similar with Jen as well. I think that's a really good or myself because I actually said those thinks great impression all right well in the spirit of top chef. We can't do anything around here without being corporate shields for something so take a break and listen to this ad and we'll be right back hopefully brooke isn't it at least well. It didn't sound like Brooke but we're back anyway. Hopefully we'll be able to give breath on one of these one time. Would you guys have called for your loved ones? Who would have been on the Emily Fox? Clearly like we all call emily. So who do you call Josh? Because I don't think we'd work well together I see. Yeah and you'd be like I don't know how I'm cutting this cutting this right and I'd be like we don't have time yet our perfectly well together in the kitchen. Yeah that would very much be the the the respect between myself. Angela as she knows what she's doing I'm going to be the sous-chef but if the positions were swapped like I have no idea how to lead that boat. Yeah we work really well together. In many circumstances but in the cookery is not really one of them. I think that I would be very a huge nervous wreck all right. So I'm out of the remaining judges. Would you pick me? Yeah Yeah Yeah. Thanks Guy Cool story about Josh. I wasn't available. I'll pick uncle tonio. Yeah we're GONNA make some Bolognese. Birds GonNa make some sort of Italian something because Antonio's got what it's got some good sources over there. That's good we can do that. We can do that. This is a question Josh. Would your would. Your product wouldn't be a smoothie. I maybe I don't know what do you do with it? What do you play you? Can we talk about the product for a second? I was like they all pretty much settled on this idea of like a sauce or relish. Was it this idea of like okay. We a product should be something. That's like easily bottled and used on everything and did it matter whether or not it was perishable like there was a lot of questions about refrigerated or do you keep it on a shelf. Like new idea what. The rubric was for the product and how marketable it is or MOLUCCA double in marketable and seem like they're also kind of hanging. There had a little bit on convenience in terms of this product and it wasn't just the. I think the chili sauce that the comment was applied to. I think the fact was this is supposed to be a product that can easily add variety to a number of dishes and then also showcase it in something Nothing think that's why Gregory ended up. Winning was not only. Was it a great product but you showed a very easy way to use. It and away really highlighted the product while so. I think it was kind of that was the the the rubric that I saw was was a great product. Make A and have it be easy to use? Have people kind of walkway understanding what it could be used for but the highlighted in an amazing way? I think that's right. And certainly that seems to help with the diners for sure and like that and I think the perfect example of this is Melissa. New makes a product. Surely everyone they're really not everyone. But a large numbers of people at the event want to take home. But it isn't a judges favorite is because the product itself. Yeah it's good. Maybe the dish with the product didn't eat as well as some of the other dishes. And that's exactly what the feedback the judges give Melissa when she's not in the top three. They're like you know the diners love dish and we liked it too. We just there's a better version of the very thing that you made here that better version by the way also not even in the top three so I think there were two different masters to serve here and the thing about the the thing about the immunity part of this. So which of course is definitely interesting. Top Chef wrinkle. Is that as you're saying Kurt like there's a different thought process. Maybe that goes into this for how you're displaying the product because you're talking about making a product that people will want to take home. It did seem though like there was some negative feedback from the judges like the people that were in the bottom three. Maybe at least especially in Stephanie's case the feedback was that this product does not stand out like wasn't that the dish was bad. They thought the dish was fine. And maybe the same thing with Malarkey. Although there are some specific issues with the product but it seemed like in Stephanie's case they were like this is just a pretty sustained orban tomatoes. Yeah it's easy to the Passover questions. Why is this sauce? Dip of many other sauce and I will say Melissa's product. I think something to be said for the fact that a normal person could understand how that would be used in recipes made at home or you feel like some of the other products you look at it and be like. I'd love to try this and I love how you're preparing it but I don't totally know how I would apply it to my own right. Yeah that's the thing is. I mean my personal favorite would have been vol- Taj Ozone telemarketing as because I like. I love anything. I love anything seafood. So like his description of the dishes well sounded awesome. I don't know how marketable it is like. I'm really looking into making seafood. Bullying Yays let me find this particular brand as opposed to something like a wing sauce as you're mentioning Hayley. There's some things. I Haley Strong would probably never make at home. Calamari is one of them. Like I go to like. I just never gonNA make that in my house. But Melissa's hot sauce. I could use that in Shaw many different ways even Stephanie's Chili Sauce like I could use that in so many different ways. I guess I could probably Kevin Salt. That felt a little like I felt like we could have tried a little harder with that one. I probably this is another like Kevin Safe. So he's making a swing here. I that's probably the product that I would most likely by like we are a hot honey sponsored. Podcast here but all of its spells for it and I think hot salt is another way to like. Bring that to worry about breaking Saracho out of the Fridge. Throwing it into something. I think the problem was that he didn't make additional displayed it in the best way because it felt like there was a lot going on with the chicken and waffles peanuts and stuff whereas hot salt specifically as a piece of that going to break through. At least that's what it looked like. Obviously if you don't have a taste that we work if you put the hot salt on some crew today the ends Art Tofu idea though. I think that's something that no one makes home unless like they're really sort of. I mean obviously everything that goes on with liens. Mom is like very upsetting and like really has you just like praying to God that everything's GonNa be okay. Hated watching the quickfire because we knew that moment was going to happen. And we're seeing it out. Yeah like they'd have moment when they loved ones. Come in like oh. I can't wait and you're like style have just crushing this episode. And I was like I'm so nervous for all the time this week I was like standing. It was like yes Lianne. Look back us why I loved what happened to the ends mom to level this time. I love eating babies and this is why an old woman passing delighted writing for. Vox now parks. He'll turn is the cliche currently silver lining to it was. I really loves seeing on the heels of that all of the other chefs leap over like Stephanie's husband's like Stephanie. Got Like seventy has this. I'm GONNA come over and help you roll up these lawns. You saw you know even even like in the midst of everything. Brian was over there. Supporting ULIASSI's Momma. She was like people were like. We're we're over. There helping. Melissa was draining some vegetables. I mean it was all hands on deck help wasn't Leeann did step it up and that was commendable but I also love the fact that everybody also helped itchy in as well and it kind of shows how tight this one I one hundred percent thought Brian Ville Taj was an emt because cops have coats the coats have these like patterns on them to see he looks like every every TV show ever. He's h from Star Trek at Holland Holland brand medical officer. I posit that one point. We were kind of like an overhead shot of a bunch of people who don't WanNa see crowding around because I didn't get the sense that it was like relish that moment. Kurt would just your your love. Leeann mom out shot in Freud relish. Because I was looking are any of those people. Medical professionals are are all of those contested. Because for the same reason that you just described to the everybody's in the way and you know jackets or coats and I was like no. I think I think those are all fellow contestants. I didn't see any like like production crew which also had me a little bit worried hours medical all right Brian Scott. He has three Mt. I clap. I think that it's a good point though Kern. I think it's always like we don't love those moments where they're in such dire straits that everyone has to come together but it reminds me of like there was an episode in season five. Wear like someone left the Fridge Open. And as a result like half the people's dishes spoiled and so everyone came together and decides like help each other and to prepare this big Christmas feast and as a result. Nobody was eliminated and I think that's another reason. I talked about a couple of last week. Like I'm not a huge fan of confrontation on top. Chef is because you can see from these moments like everyone genuinely likes each other and wants to help each other out talking with some of these contestants. A lot of people have told me like I really phase out the people around me because at the end of the day. You're not really cooking against them. You're cooking against yourself so it always. It always feels nice to have people embrace each other because they all have that mentality and it was like seven seconds into the episode. We See Brian. Acting AS PEACEKEEPER POST LEASES DEPARTURE. And you see you see Malarkey and Leeann hugging it out like okay. We're good we've moved on. We've got us and it was really kind of a nice turn like last week. We saw when Leandro getting her plates out for everybody. Everybody was pitching in to help her. But it Kinda got heated. This is kind of like the the flip side of that is like this is another situation. Where pitching in to help Leeann like Brian? Malarkey came over to help and land please. Not You could put some salt on your a plea Brian Malarkey. Go Tie that scarf around your head again. I just get back into the kitchen smelling salts from my mom and she never wakes up smelling alt- so I'd like to know from everybody and I'll start by doing my Josh Wigley impression. I'd like to know what what you would have. Used your ticket on one choice and so I'll start by doing my jesuit impression. I would've gone with leaney's roasted knock mom glaze. Wow Weird impression of Josh doing jt from survivors. Oh God the picture no drawl of Brooklyn that impression of mean so far as that's what I would have picked. I figure I would've picked Dini's roasted knock mom glaze which is very similar to the pox chicken wings. I know that you and I and emily both three of us. So as both all three of US try loved it. Yeah we tried before to really good one time restaurants on. It's an Portland. I don't know what they're doing as it moved out of Brooklyn Cookbook a cookbook Andy. Ricker pop pock anything. Andy Recur if you're interested in making a really really tasty but there is spicy Thai food. He has he has. He has great cookbooks and the the the sausage he uses it for his chicken wings is a Vietnamese sauce Vietnamese style. He calls them Vietnamese fish sauce wings believes because and it seems like what Ni made is like using the same ideas of what's being applied to pack wings accepted. The sauce itself is roasted and that sounds awesome especially applied to ribs. And I'm not normally. Maybe I don't know I don't typically love like a super saucy rib eye lake my ribs A. B. Like mostly like rain and like and like spice rubbed and then like I can control the amount of sauce. I agree because otherwise. You're just tasting the sauce I wanna be able to and I might want to use a bunch of different barbecue sauce thing too. I think it could be a texture thing like I want there to be like that. Like kind of crusty burnt spice quality to him. And then I want to be able to defend like vinegar barbecue sauce or like there's like a super spicy. WanNa WanNa try that too and for Ernie's ribs to have been received so well Piques my curiosity and I and I know that flavor well enough and I love Vietnamese flavors that I think that would be something that you really fun to have. You can fly that a lot of things. Here's my heartache. I think Nina a dark horse in this competition. That would be a dream. Come true for me. I love her so much. She's been doing particularly well. She was in the top twice. I think this is like she's starting to gain momentum and I think maybe unlike someone like Jamie for instance. She's someone who you might contest. She really all star but I think she's actually proving why. She was robbed last restaurant wars and proving that you know she. She knows how to cook and she cooks well. Like I know that we've sort of I think we've winnow things down a bad. We talked about that over the past couple of weeks. I don't know if we're doing a Brian Malarkey and power ranking everything but I do feel like Nina Circling Melissa. Wasn't her first season like a very quietly competent chef who is getting accolades for what she's doing. Yeah and that actually tracks well with like you know I sort of comments in the first episode to where she's like everyone's like a James Beard Award winner like your I am like hooking amongst all of these people really intimidating so track that throughout the entire season. I think it's pretty fun. What about you. What would you put your ticket in? I also I would have gone for The the fennel relish Thank you malarkey. No I also awarded in quarantine. Kurt has gained new appreciation for fennel. Never never looking through the list. I probably would have also not to follow Antonio Suppression of Josh too closely. But I also would have gone for for Nina's glaze just the know. How much of that is based on? How is presented in Pork Rib? But that's something I would I would put on any. I would put that on any meat. It's tough right because like how much would it be based on the food that's put in front of you? And how much would it be your genuine interest in the product? 'cause like I might put a ticketing Kevin's because I love chicken and waffles. But like am I really investing in hot salt as product? Probably it was probably approach like I. I got turned onto a black bean garlic paste through a couple Korean dishes that I got through a meal subscription service and then I actually because of that sauce. I made that several times but as low but then once it kind of became familiar with how to use it in the dish already knew then I branched out into other problem thinking. That's how I would probably approach it is I would probably I? Oh this is the dish may be really like it and then after it kind of mastered that I would branch out and just experimental. I probably would've gone. I guess comparing both minos Baltimore I probably would have gone for. Eric's yea done a good episode for Eric. Because like I I've I probably have tried doubles. Maybe like once a strategic error or something but I I it looked really good. I like the adding crispy pinch added to it. But like I I would say bill peppers peppers in general might be like might be my favorite vegetable if I'm if I'm doing my own. Little power rankings. Just because there's it's so versatile so like just like a pepper sauce seems like a product that I would be genuinely invested in. I think it has a lot of versatility. I think you can put it on a lot of stuff and super delicious. I also just loved watching Eric and his wife Chanel. She's so he was just like totally into her. And like the best to watch. If I remember correctly from last season she may be a model like. I think. I remember him saying that. Okay yeah he's Eric. Right now is is is doing some stuff. There's some things happening with Eric. I got a press release in the last couple of days. Just to shout out Eric. And what he's got going on is working with he's leading. Seal approved meals. Earth Day eats launchings. Today's Earth Day launching April fifteenth through April. Twenty four th. He's he's sharing cooking tutorials and mouth-watering ocean friendly recipes on April eighteenth which we've passed that right L. Let's today April Eighteen Nathalie. Eric and four fellow celebrity top chefs are going to host of facebook live event to discuss sustainable farming fishing and cooking. And how each shift make positive difference on the planet so you probably listening to this at a point where. It's too late to watch that line you go back and watch it that. Say Seal approved. Yes militia Maroon. All your shouldn't have Josh. Also baby-seal is no god you before you eat it Kurt It's the most excellent sandwiches. Right God the Marine Mammal Center seal approved meals and the logo is indeed seal and we ask. Looks like smoking a Cigarette. Does it has like a tongue. Chill sharpness did it did it. Who the other alumni that are. Cooking alongside longside Eric. Not In this press. Release No okay. So yes yes. Yes yes got it got it got it? Michelle Minori Edmond. Konrad Eddie. Any any money Brian. Malarkey and Adrian Adrian Muscle like all top chef Kentucky people plus Malarkey. Yeah so that's a good crew. That's good there you go. Oh and Robin Roberts is narrating it. Okay narrating it. David attenborough like observe the chefs ads. David Attenborough as Robin. I think they sold out a Mascara after that impression Haley. What would you from the things that everyone was marketing? I'm pretty basic so I think I would have gone for Melissa's on Josh because I can see myself using that. I'm Nina saw sounds delicious but I think what is kind of like keeping me from picking. That is our dish was prepared. I don't love ribs like that's not something I tend to go for so I could see how it work on ribs but then I would maybe not see how I could use it on others. Irl Melissa Sauce. I could see me using that on a billion different things so I think I'd have to go for that or would you fox. I just said my calypso pepper you often. I also feel like it's something you can't find everywhere like pick. That is really unique in terms of Brandon won't type of food in the spirit of that even though I wouldn't pick it I really loved the idea for the MAPO sauce because a lot of work and I'm not a big MAPO guy not really aren't actually discouraged us from ordering because like it really just like it completely. Rearranges your taste. Buds and everything tastes so different. So you really gotta be in the mood for somebody ticket trading spaces to your tongue and just rearrange everything evergreens. You'll be comes into your mouth like stuff. The better it gives you like it gives you like the tongue coming feel in my everything tastes a little different part about the first time you had it with where like reaction path so like. I don't I don't particularly but I very much appreciate it and I and I've had some really good Titians or even I've had like Oh my God But I think like people who love that kind of thing. I'm to be able to just like outright by that. And then like one of the the harder pieces of crafting a meal around that is taking care of and you could start getting into some interesting stuff you can cook down your eggplant and have it with the MAPO sauce or or like a soft tofu with applesauce all that really relaxed or firm. Tofu can be you know. I'm not gonNA disparage. Tofu is at wouldn't whenever you like. I'm speaking of I guess. More exotic pundits talk about the winning dish right the even though we did not pig. Jiji's party pick these bids not a huge fan of pickled vegetables or pickles. So it wouldn't be exactly what I was going for but apparently like the judges were just over the moon with limit. I was a little surprised that he won. Considering how much praise was heaped onto Eric Anini as well. And but it's it's Gregory. You'd assume that he'd win a challenge that he was pretty much on the top. Yeah I like I like myself. Good pickle so. I'm probably not GONNA be mad at these pickles but I. I think I was surprised that this was the this was the top spot that being said. I can imagine it. Having incredible utility across a wide variety of dishes Hickel's go is not everything but pickles. Go with a lot of things you could imagine putting this on a burger and that probably just getting kicked up like seventeen different notches out of like ten notches. So it's really passed the bar versus thirteen so like there's just a lot of different ways that I think that you could. You could throw that in and it would probably be really good and it's Gregory and if he's throwing out pickles and pit bulls are winning. Those better be spent. His mom was adorable. Yes yeah I think this is probably the one I would have picked. Actually Eric are the two that I had a hard time deciding between. If I had one ticket what I would what I would do. The thing is like I I think. Gregory's dish really spoke to the fact that Gregory can strip this down and make this kind of dish. I don't know that is speaking of over under reported. I don't know how much he has in the past focused on his heritage Where he's from and the kind of food that he's cooked with his family. I know that Gregory's and a lot of Asian flavors a ton of Asian cooking. I think at his restaurant. I don't know the menu. I believe it's stuff like that and I think we've seen more of that from him on the show and more creative light bold flavor choices. This is more rustic. This is more something that I was surprised that it was so dialed back and so specific and I think that he really deserved to win the challenge. For that reason it showed to me Something about him as chef that I don't think he usually shows on the show. The faculties cooked at the James Beard House with his mother and Cook this kind of food I would I would. I'm more interested in seeing this kind of food. From Gregory repeatedly. I am the Pan Asian seafood dishes that he typically puts out. This is something that really blew me away. And as far as the pickling goes. I think Tom Points out like a lot of cultures. Have versions of this. I'm most familiar with the Italian version of it which has like the cauliflower and the carrots and the peppers as there's yarded area and this this one was slightly different by. Because I'm familiar with it. I do know that that can that kind of stuff can go with a lot of different things like you were saying. Josh so I think it's fascinating shelf stable. That's really cool. I really really really would like to try this as dappling. Believe exactly like punch up anything all in all end. So that was the one I would have picked. I think really Eric was when they were standing there getting their judging saying it was so good it was so good. It's all like everybody was really all in on this dish and moments of the episode to about like kind of like it's about family it's about loved ones. It's all about that like to see like Eric gets into the top. Three Gregory's there too and the judges start like complementary complementing Gregory's dishes and Eric himself can't even stop himself from like weighing in alongside the Janice Grier. You killed it. That's just like spoke to one of the things that we've talked about a lot across the years of doing different versions of this podcast of like one of the things that's great about top chef camaraderie and like when people are coming together and really supporting each other and boosting each other up and this was a great moment of that this season there were a couple of obviously. It's like when everyone was rising together to help out. Leeann but this was like a subtle version of that where it's like Gregory. You killed it like I know that like. They haven't even started talking about my thing yet. I'm still in the running but like dude. That was great. I'm wonder I wonder if that's because it's an all star season but I was just going to say this is the first all stars didn't feel like and I think part of it. Is We housing such a shift in reality television that when the first all stars was on we were still looking for like hardcore drama in our shows and I think the season's leading up and slightly following that all star seasons had had that mold to in the last few seasons? We've really seen the chefs coming together and really respecting each other's work and loving what each other's doing and being supportive and that's really showing this all stars too so a lot. My point is that the world is different. And people want niceness now fighting I think it kind of lends itself to more of like a great British. Bake off feeling really. Yeah and also if you have watched all the great British bake off and you want something else like that. Try and find great Canadian baking show because it is equally delighted. Stop I I have not heard of this and if you like Shits Creek. The first two seasons are hosted by Dan Lovey. Well onboard theme. Like feeling as off where like it just feels like warm and comfortable so if you love. Gpo check out the Canadian version again. There go the extra B. is for BBB. Eli OBE a British bake off. Actually this is Fun Story. Because we didn't we don't have it on Canadian. That was on Mike Blooms couch in New York City. Stay with US during one note. Also that actually. That's we're we passed the anniversary. That was three years ago because I was the infamous. A Malcolm Tribal Council that therefore so. We had a great time of sitting on the couch. Not Talking to each other and then we watched. Delaware's product within your all too tired too fast day we went to Tetsuji Restaurant Limits. Mexi Kosher and we got the fright ZIP because we're dumb and we forgot. We tried to order cheese on it. Yeah I was. I was the one outfit to go in an order the tacos and so when I said she is I was given the look like I had five heads of like do you. Did you read the signs and then I sort of had again. This is also like very few few hours of sleep but to your point. I also wonder if there's also the crop of intestines like I would say that across the board. Oh yes this. All sorts pass would support each other. But I'll be honest. I'm flashing back to Joe. Sasso throwing show much shade onto Kerry for the toast a couple of seasons ago. But I'm not sure if he would do something in the realm that Eric's doing so I think it also just happens that they have a relatively nice group of people as well and it speaks to what you were talking about before. Antonio I think even the most crusty people coming into this sort of warmed over a bit as well definitely and we the drama between Leeann Brian. I think it's a kind of a groner because we especially now right like this very moment the interpersonal drama on top chef is really not something that. I want out of my top chef and in the past it's been sizzling and it's been something that I've enjoyed even though sometimes it goes overlying. Obviously this stuff with Marcel is no fine. But there's been good drama before but this is. I don't want this. I mean that's not the kind of drama. I I don't WanNa harm. Oh my talk show didn't happen. That's what that's what we're going to go for. But anyway I I do feel like in this is. This is not want to spoil anything. I'm just GonNa say it looks like next week. The chefs will be paired up and that that could lead to some more of this drama. So hopefully we get a little less stress on that. You can't if you if you're interested in parsing the trailer and I won't say it you can see what the payers are. Those nobis some interesting match. Our there'll be particular that. I'm very very concerned about Tom any lou. How exactly do their communication skills? Well what would you talk about the dishes that were in the bottom? What's what's going on with Stephanie. Smartest Season Haley. Yeah these just. She's so in her own head and it's so funny watching this and watching her because like I just I I feel her so much and even Ethan watches it with me. He's like like her interacting with her husband and he was like. This isn't GonNa go while I tell him he's like can you just stop him? He's like this is you. You know that I do. And he's like seed like there's nothing to worry about. I'm like Oh. She's a Nevada to worry. Though I think Stephanie is just she just needs to get in her groove and. I don't know if there's enough time for her to do that. It makes me sad stephanie. Just needs to follow her heart. I think she she suffering a little bit from imposter syndrome. Which is something I suffer with. I come on this podcast. I genuinely like I feel like I am like the lowest tier of all of you and I think Stephanie might also feel like that when she's coming into this competition took me doing my Haley about myself but she hasn't worked in the kitchen for a long time and all these people have and they're winning awards and they're doing all these things and I think Ninian staff near both looking around like like I'm different than these people but needs like rising to the occasion and Stephanie's leading that difference consume her instead of trying to do what she does best and instead of just some like a watered down version of it each subsequent like time that this is happening. This is happening a decent amount. It's just like what what is like bad. Momentum is that also momentum. No it's like it's the sad momentum of things are just not going so well. Stephanie. I can't remember. I think she might have ended up in a good partner ships. So I'm hoping that will give her the boost. She needs to kind of change her her momentum and she can go in the positive direction. She's been on the bottom more often than not. Oh how dare you bring that up to me? No it's just three now. I know she's either in the top and the bottom and so I think she'd be happy to be a little bit of a middle ground right now. Yeah I think to disappear a little bit but as as the competition goes like there's fewer spots to hide so no but I just like and here's the thing like I don't think she really should have been the bottom for her. Art Plate is just the way that show that she was in the bottom and US looking objectively. You could say we don't think Stephanie actually belongs in the bottom here but Stephanie saying like I'm in the bottom it doesn't matter I'm in the bottom through. Yeah I agree. Do we think where we surprised that Jan went over her. I personally was it. Like the top chef at it is a weird. Primera to sort of look past but I just felt like we have not seen anything of jenn Carol and it's very very rare that we have like outright purple people making it far into the game. So I'm like I could see this. Honestly be like just a bad episode for her. She's super chill and billing out right now. I was surprised that it was jen. I I I went into went into it thinking it was going to be Bryan Bryan like I wanted him to go home. I'm tired of a home. The oily commonly that was like the glue equivalent of the pizza from the first the flat bread. Sorry from the first episode like oily isn't a word you WANNA use and Greenie at least potentially okay but oily. There's just nothing properly positive about that. And then but then when they were starting to get through the the reason this person's going home as above. Oh It's Stephanie. They're describing Stephanie and so John was out of left field so I was surprised. Yeah I on paper. Obviously we have not tried to thing but like a lemon. Ginger sauce sounds lovely. Love Sauce Josh in. It's a love sauce with LEMON GINGER FLAVOR. Those are those are two flavors that go great together. I think if it had a better name would have done better. No I don't know I honestly if she just passes that Ginger through. Seve I don't know if she's in the body goes on but I like the chunk. Coleco has a beef with the entire city of Philadelphia because not only did we eliminate one of their favourite daughters but he talked shit about gritty the whole time and that is not one staring into what the next boat would. Tom Brady Live. Tweets top chef like he live tweets the bachelor presents. Listen to your heart. That's happening Haley. You think I would make that up. How clever that could've happened put. It's no that's it absolutely real saying that you hot casting about here on the reality. Wrap up network for what it's worth. I thought both the podcast and the show itself is actually a lot of fun. So if you need to fill time during quaranteed The interesting thing is well is that it seemed like it seemed like brought my way. You could agree that Malarkey may be the worst criticisms for like his product. I think he got off like I think. He ended up being the third worst because they saw they said that the food actually wasn't that bad like. I think when like what happened with Stephanie. To Stephanie's we day all like the Chili they liked. What they said fish was really good on Malarkey. And I think that just as a dish didn't like Jen's that much and so they feel like kind of split on the product will be the dealbreakers. That's what gets Jannati. I thought this was really like personality. Wise fantastic episode for John especially thinking about the way she went out in the first stars she just had this beautiful sense of peace about everything and the way she shook concierge and walked out with a smile on her face instead of cursing. Everyone out I was. I thought we got a satisfying arc to Jen's story on top chef. Best her best day ever she says like on the day. She got eliminated compared to survivor. It's almost like intellect. Tyson getting voted out after the loved. Ones visit right of like had this big moment of emotional and personal fulfillment and it just so happens that they leave right after that. But it's it's coming not the full circle experience but almost a one eighty. I also wonder if it softens the blow of it by being like. What are you going to last chance kitchen? So you know. This is not the last time you'll be in this season. And even like you know spoiler spoiler alert last chance kitchen. Even her elimination there was peaceful like it was. It was positive then he saw. Yeah and it was it was. It was nice to see like she seemed at at peace with an okay with everything that happened in how it happened and she was also accepting of whereas like the. I'd say the elimination challenge dish. She may have thought internally that it was came down to personal preference like this is how I like this sauce. I like it kind of a little bit more chunky. Unfortunately that's not what the judge is like but even for in last chance kitchen. She was like I made some miscalculations here. She recognized that the best dish one was it a personal preference. 'cause I'm pulling Jamie of like well. I was the last one to be tasted so therefore the sauce become gingery. Yeah so I I felt like jenn coming onto the season it was like what more can we really be seeing from John? I'm glad we thought this little aspect from her and rest in Peace Jen's chances on top chef because spoiler alert. She lost last chances. It's happening. Lashings kitchen having a great time watching last chance kitchen this season. I thought that I think the challenges are a lot of fun. We're getting a lot of great personality from the people who are on. The show would recommend honestly. I think it helps that. Tom Knows these people and so he's been a bit more playful to the point where this challenge was genuine home for a sauce. So you two are going to be cooking sauces for a protein that I'm cooking so there was no time on the clock. They were basically given the length of that. It took Tom to cook a rabbi for them to find an accompanying sauce. And whoever has the better sauce ends up prevailing here and gets one step closer to apparently next week when one person comes back from the last challenge before returning the time it takes a cookery by can't be that much time. No well Jason things kind of calculated at about twenty minutes whereas Lisa calculated at about ten and a hat. We'LL BE RIGHT IN. Jen kind of realized that hers whereas Lisa's sauce was a bit again. Was kind of the goldilocks. Lisa's sauce is a little bit thicker and more of a condiment whereas Jan had kind of nuts given had allowed enough time for her sauce It was more running liberty. I think that's what came down through. And that's what JEN ended up dodging. She admits estimate the time she had dried tried to do too much. Dinkic the sauce consistency. That should have been and she recognized that the better sauce one but it was. It was initially kept. Jen was threatening Jitterbug. Tom would walk away from the from the cooking station and she like she just turned the heat like she's still like making your book into when people turned up the heat exactly and then only on her sauce a couple of weeks ago it would have been people like to see you messing with Tom. Ability but the cost would come over the United States. Okay this is about where it's at. Oh He's putting it in the wood fire oven and so it was and they were they were doing the proper. Your kitchen thing was like Yo. How much time chef? In like the point where he'd say it looks like it is. I've been just six minutes away when it was at that point but I thought it was really interesting challenge. I was nervous for lease at a certain point because I thought on paper. I agree that like I cheesed spouses. This fact that like she doesn't like more liquidity runny sauces on stake. Because when you already have natural juice coming out of the stake it's just all mixed together and then it dilutes and it's really tough to sort of separate the flavors so she's going for more like a chimney cherry more of like A. Tom Calls a more of a condiment sauce really but then because she underestimated the cooking time she kept adding stuff in. And that's what made me a little nervous of like okay. Is she over thinking things throwing too much in there but ended up working out? Okay now she is too l. CK. It's also interesting. How making use of the attendee slash peanut gallery a lot more than they have in the past like. There's been a couple of times now where they said I don't. I haven't seen Brussel sprouts or are there. Dates and Brussel bristled fresh air. And and the peanut gallery would turn around and look at their second shelf like they were actually kind of chiming in and helping. They weren't leaving. Their seats. Could say no. There's definitely this ingredient is in the fridge or that spices on the shelf. That's the middle south second from the right and so it's interesting that they're actually making use of the former having lost contestants that are sitting there in the audience. Where's the ladle Kurt ladles so it was fun? It was a Brussels sprouts. There were no shallots like I feel like they're just slowly removing things from the L. C. K. Kitchen like sort of like a game of musical chairs just to see what people are left with my grocery store out this this this is been closed down. Sorry that's it looks like next week will be a double elimination troll chain restaurants kitchen and then return will come back in. I would say returnees no idea could be no idea. Gano or what? I'll say three three three contestants. One person's eliminated one person goes onto phase. Two of last chance kitchen. One person back into the game so that they don't have to skip a week of last season and one stays in last chance kitchen on those home brave. I would say handicapping it. I think without even knowing who gets eliminated I'd say I'M GONNA put my Brian Malarkey hot here and say Lisa is least likely to re enter the game. Even though she's done okay what you guys are. Just talking about really highlighted. That last chance kitchen is a struggle for a lot of people and it's hard to gauge in. These challenges are not leaving a lot of room for error in that regard but they are in some ways because multiple people are making errors so I just handicapping it that way. I would say at least likely. Why don't you guys think about Brian's segment when he laid out the competition my friend? Emily texted me. Emily Shire's shut up to her. She listen to us. Every week actually shared a great question last week to remind me. Remind me to ask you guys it. She mentioned this to me. And I I missed us. So can you. Can you can do it. Malarkey just power rankings pulls an UPROXX here and he essentially wrote down in his notebook how he ranks all. The remaining contestants obviously put himself on top because quote. I'm here to win. And he basically put some like typical people up there you know he put Melissa Kevin and montage in the top and then at the bottom. He put Stephanie Unle- and because they were in the bottom so it wasn't exactly a huge thing. It's just an interesting moment from Brian. Malarkey and I would say we talked about this since the very beginning of this podcast how you know the evolution of top chef as it were how some people make strategic decisions but otherwise it usually comes out in the wash it was surprisingly game heavy segment in top chef. And he basically said gotTa make it to restaurant wars and then do well there and then the you know. The season opens up for me at that point so he was very clearly a little book he was he was the library was open. He was reading. These protests sunglasses to put on his well with that he would absolutely so I thought it was interesting and I thought maybe not an inaccurate way to read this season saying Brian Kevin and Melissa the front runners Leeann staffing Eric. I saw putting Eric. There was was interesting. I think that's a bad reap by Brian. Maybe he just didn't want to own name. But that's probably who I would've put I instead of Eric so I don't know. Dvd on whether Brian Power rankings. Stay true or not. Caring gets mentioned. I thought that was interesting as well. I'm just looking at my notes. I thought it was hilarious. Haley you mentioned in a in a just an open way. The idea that Steph might have imposter syndrome. I thought hilariously when she was talking to Brian. Ville Taizhou about what he made and he goes over. Every single ingredient took the norrie shifted. I Made Pasta. That quit the old sea travel and then we love each claiming it up. This turns away. It's just like fuck. My Life and love is love her so much. Stephanie is relatable af like in his all of us in this competition she has a great personality that like she just completely take everything just a very dry expression. I would also point out. We talked about Gender Jessica and we talked about this off the podcast but I want to knowledgeable. We're on Mike here. Just the Great Editing Moment Aware Jessica starts describing the table settings as well as some sort of cutlery competition to the editors also put it in the lower third to describe the quote unquote dish. One four yeah so good. I know we don't need to know about what you're drinking. Don't tell us. Could you imagine they spend all the time? I'm like the wine pairing and then I don't know Nancy just sort of pushes it aside guy. Don't care about that. Well it was wondering I was just wondering that actually if talking about what wine is in front of you would help you know what the dishes True Yeah so good back to Stephanie. Really quick I don't know if you guys follow her on Instagram. But she's been doing this series called my shitty little kitchen. You should definitely check it out. Drunkenly comment under it. I'd probably like send her like this long message. I love you. You're the best probably should should not. Although my alcohol title tolerance the last few weeks a lot higher last night I woke up feeling great and I was like I don't know if that's a good thing crusher bottle stay and felt nothing seventies right now and she tags her husband ask sweet sweet. David was the star of last night. Show the love of my life heart Emoji. We were on the bottom but to distract you from that mess. Here's a pick of Tom Colegio. And it's pick of Tom with hair. Yeah and it just to die for. Yeah it's really good. Her and her in southern instagram fetus. Underscore my little kitchen. Yeah if you want them around. Yeah my shitty little kitchen. It's excellent. I love them so much. I love everybody. It's interesting as well in terms of again for going back to like picking loved ones. Stephanie's husband is also a chef I think something that benefited from bringing in like what your mom makes is. If you're working with your mom your mom could very easily help you. I think Gregory was very much assisted by making his mom's pick lease so again. I I do think that whether coincidental or not debasing. A product based on who? You're cooking with. I think was accused Boon and a lot of these newspaper. I thought needs needs Mommy. Think Astro like Oh. How'd you learn to make this? You know having us from you look under reported. I think in this podcast is Kurt. Clerks affection for Nina's mom. Well she's the best means. Mom has got it going on with with. They wrapped up the quick fire. And say who wants a glass of wine? She's like front of the line. I'll have smell over here. I'll take some some on smooth sauce on my own assured him I look okay. Yeah needs mom was the best? Okay so I'll ask you emily's question now. Normally they take a break from filming the regular season to fill in the finale in the new location have they filmed the finale yet. And if not how do they think they'll deal? I think they do now. They filmed it in Italy. Right they did. I don't take as long as break between as they used to It used to be like I think Brooke said with her first season it was like maybe a month or so and then you know. Colorado was like right through because they were staying in Colorado. I think it's maybe only a couple of weeks this time. But if there's a couple times where people come back with completely different hairstyles or beard. Blessing was mccower. Yea interim it was. It was Was definitely somewhere in Asia. I remember there was in Korea. I think maybe that was Angelo's first season and then one of them was in the Philippines in China recently. It's not last season because I remember hype enough that that Pork Chop. Yeah you talking about that a lot. I really WANNA try. It still. Haven't look your flight now. Easy cheap cheap in good cancellation policies. So much is that true. Well you well as long as an airline that you're planning I'm probably flying anyway. I've AFLAID EARLY. May that I need to cancel. And I'm not going to stress refund versus versus credit because it's GONNA fly United Anyway later in the year so interesting interesting maybe if our over let's leave again like I've just put like a complete hold on wedding planning because we've had. We've had a few friends who've had to postpone their wedding. They had weddings coming up in Japan. Say Ours is an October so it's far enough away. Yeah we don't have to make a call right now but like there's almost no point in like thinking about it right now. I mean I think if you're especially if you're looking to make choices and reaching out to people with their business like considering the state of their businesses at the moment it's it's not the most reliable time new as as somebody who works in events like I gotta like fine. Well speaking speaking of states of business some some updates on that front one. We said last week by an offer to to get some gift cards for people who wanted to support. Lisa's restaurant here in Brooklyn. We have some takers so shadow to Scott Michael. Lena and Hudson GonNa throw some gift cards your way soon. I feel like I may have had one other person reach out to me on instagram and I cannot track you down. So if that's you and you're listening and you know that we talked. I'll see our conversation history so I'll know if you're lying but hit the just bumped the conversation. I'll make sure that you get a gift card there but also we had the people who we'd put out there like if you've got any restaurants that are local to you that you want to be hyping up and if we can if we can pump that up here on the podcast we certainly would And I got a I got a message from the Okay Mama on instagram. Who is said? Just finished the top chef podcasts. Where this can happen throughout my favorite local place for your shoutouts Monis in Oklahoma City. It's incredible Italian.

Station DOT CA. Speaking of top chef Canada. It is came back this week. The first episode of Top Chef Canada's season eight question mark premiered this week. Sorts of what we've been cooking. We go along with the restaurant thing. If you guys ordered I would love to know what you did order out this week and we'll from what restaurant cooked. I Cook because I felt new blend I cooked. I blend every morning at blend every morning smoothie operator smoothie operator but I cooked dinner for us this week because I felt like if I came back onto the top chef podcasts that having cooking dinner then I was GonNa feel really bad about myself and instead I just feel really bad about myself because I totally butchered a good piece of Meat Cook. The steaks made a steaks with potatoes and ASPARAGUS. That I thought I was. I was split and I was very self conscious about the whole time. Which is why we have like proof in the pudding. That would be a very bad team for some of these schanche emily. No you're stressing. We got into a fight and I removed myself from the kitchen we made. It wasn't exactly photogenic. It was it was totally you on. You embarrassed about the whole. Hey good well. Let's taste what you're doing. That's what I made. I made. I made that we we ordered. We had burgers last night from the Red Hook Tavern here in Brooklyn in red hook named like one of the best or cursive restaurant. It's a really recent restaurant and They have been very difficult to get into the bar. The the the the reservations have been very very hard to secure and the trick that emily and I had done two times we had gone into pass to show up right at open on a weekday night. 'cause Red Hook is a little bit challenging to get to at open on a weekday night. If you're working in Manhattan basically impossible Luckily I work from home and Emily. You had shifts that like we could schedule this around so we'd gone a few times. Burger is ridiculous. It is like it is like a big thick burger. It's very thick burger it is. It's like draped in Cheddar cheese or American cheese American cheese and it stacked on like a pile of lightly grilled onions and just around if onion. That's quickly grilled really really awesome one of the best burgers in town. Obviously based it. Didn't like all bugger shifted to delivery. They also the people who own home hometown barbecue in in Red Hook as well which is really really good. Argue spot in New York that we had ordered from a couple of weeks ago but we ordered Red Hook Tavern last night and it was awesome. It was really really really great so we're trying to. We're trying to do that like once a or so. I'm rhyming I'm trying to do it like three times a weekend. And we keep going to the grocery store and I know only fair totally fast food to eat totally fair fair. This is always been the struggle really has a but we we order last night and it was. It was really really awesome. It's very satisfying than we played scrabble. So I end bordering so I guess I'm tying like the I also had a burger distorted from like a bear Burger which is more of a chain but it's always. It's always good to get stuff from there. I'll tell you what I'm cooking into a food question because we recently come into the possession of a lot of ferro and we've been trying to Parse it out like we had a very simple dish before of like ferro butternut squash and sausage. That was just like a nice sort of grain bowl esque thing but I guess my question Directed towards emily as like as a grain is feral like substitute for other staples. Like would we would. We like put it in for like if we had a rice dish. Substituted for Pharaoh. Would it be like? I'm very similar type of texture. It's going to have to do it no matter what you do go out of it. So that's one way to kind of toast it up and make it tastes a little bit more exciting. Yeah that's pretty much. It made me feel better about like like unless you know liven up our carbohydrates a little bit but I'm all I'm Phero doubt at this point but but in a good place for it's we're trying to find ways is GonNa get you make up with it. Keep I know. Throw it into some. We have not ventured into that just yet but we just might to see how versatile maybe that should be the product. It's just bottle some farrow and you could sell them with anything. Antonio please tell me everything about your bullies. You made this week this week last week yet. I finally got my order of some double-o flour and it took like three weeks. Which is fine. This is not a complaint so I made some popper Dell kind of pasta strips with a hearty sauce. Some bonus sauce. That was last weekend and I don't know I don't know what this weekend will bring. I'm you guys really made me WanNa Burger. Don't know what that Burger is GonNa look like. I don't know it's tough to torn between going to the store and getting three weeks worth of groceries or four weeks worth of groceries and never you know acting down from that but also supporting local restaurants. So it's really difficult to try to strike that balance and try to figure out the best way to do that. But Berger sound really good right now so I mean if you do breakfast lunch and dinner seven days a week. That's what twenty one meals like. Just try to share it out. You know if you do like one one third or one quarter or elevensies now. The second breakfast either. What do you what what was on your plate this week? I did my traditional Friday Night Koji Barbecue truck. I'm kind of working through the early good Kimchi case. D. is yesterday and as well as their Pacman Burger which was three proteins to cheeses a couple sauces. Both although I think when they packed up my case there was a be in there. Because I'm meeting the case of and I looked down on my finger and there's a be on my finger. I thought I was maybe like a piece of the case and it stunned me and my finger and act like twenty years. I know that I didn't used to be allergic and so I'm like googling. How fast does a beast eating causing allergic reaction just in case my mom's allergic but long story? Short Debbie in for Easter. I treated myself to cheesecake factory. 'cause there's one near me and I walked in there and there's like tons of bags like so. Many people are living the cheesecake factory and Woodland Hills so good on supporting allow people to death for Easter in terms of cooking in a similar line to my very obviously mid West inspired a baby shrimp on criminal cream cheese crackers spread. I did traditional Clark family dish of beans and ground beef which consists of beans and ground. Beef what type of beans so actually I. I think that from my mom actually made this for me over the winter holidays. I hadn't had it and probably ten years. I forgot just how satisfying it is and I made a change Sauteed up some jalapenos onions in a in my cast iron skillet that I bought a couple of months. And then you had a pound a gun beef and you brown it and he had some chili powder to that. That's all brown you throw in some baked beans This was I think Bourbon Maple Bourbon. Maple baked beans alleged that simmer. You tossed a little bit of brown sugar and a little bit sentiment. And it's just rib-sticking good. It's like a chilly without the tomato. And Somehow and for the light actually for the leftover. Because there's a lot of it I actually said. Can I a sloppy Joe this up and I put it on a hamburger bun and through some cheddar cheese on top of it and actually the The first batch of us some Greek yogurt sour cream substitute. Yeah so that was my experiment in traditional family dish this week. I think that sounds easy and very till pay you can just like change like I was just like I was telling my mom. How is making Angie's through? Its oregano going through the spices. I never uses like display tastes good. That's just try it so it was a fun experimental dish. It was very easy. Kurt's lab at that'd be talked about twin like the Bachelor Breakfast Burrito. Yeah Yeah I haven't made the Bachelor Fried Rice yet but that would very much my wheelhouse actually listen to your heart fried rice. Yeah no I'm not listening to my heart this week last weekend. My mother cooked all Turkey dinner for everybody and then my dad dropped it off at everyone's houses So that was really wonderful. Lovely my mother to do so. We had a nice wonderful Turkey dinner Sunday night for Easter. And then we had some the leftovers for dinner one night as hot Turkey Sandwich and that is something. I never really crave but I was really craving this week. Not Favorite Food. And then we've talked about it in which we talked about the text where you want to give the listeners and update to your cranberry sauce situation last week. My mother made sure to pack cranberry sauce for me. It was the cranberry sauce. I like. What a joy what joy what else did I make. I can't remember honestly but we did make very large thick burgers this week that we're really delicious. Super easy to just the half-pounder ground beef. Oh three quarters cup. A little more breadcrumbs and eggs. Some more sure sauce and spoonful a garlic and had a great time awesome. I have a question if I'm making Bergerson. I've got the beef. Yeah am I missing out? If I don't throw like breadcrumbs Nagin. Can I just do like an all beef burger with? Maybe some onions thrown in present. Like a bad idea. You can. I like to add. I like to add both to like. Just keep it together a little bit easier Burger recipes. I find actually don't have a binder in it most of UNITA binder if you're not putting any breaded now if you if you make yourself like a really thick patty and you just sat eighty salt pepper the shit out of it like do I a restive amount of salt and pepper and any sear. That like it's going to be pretty hard for that tastes great definitely go into the experimental spice range with with this with this. Burger tonight. If that's the route I go. Okay go ahead go ahead and have you tried to like invest the spice mixes and just make us a dad. Yeah I have one. That's actually a subscription like that that mantra box josh. I had some some spices come in through that one is it's contains Chili and onion garlic ends. Haiyin and I'm looking at right now and So I I do. Have some spice blends like you'd like just the regular Turkey sandwiches I have. I have a sandwich spice Glenda Bro. I do have some spice blends. I can use whole coverage full of spices that I just really us kind of using quarantine time to really dig into those and for this week. I'm sure we don't have a whole lot of listeners. Who Live in Niagara and even more specifically South Niagara by if you do happen to live in the same area that ideal I tako ever.

How they have lasagna soup which is truly one of the best seats. I've ever tasted my entire life unbelievable and I can't stop myself from getting it every week. One of the first things that you'll ever made for me was her family's lasagna soup. Like I've never even heard of this. It's unbelievable it's like lasagna.

It's a little bit about like reuniting with Brian Wilson and Kevin Little season six reunion since I was a bit of a unique experience. So she's talking about stuff otherwise put out some stuff you mentioned Shits Creek before Haley. It did a bit of a deep dive on that emporia. Recaps did a two and a half hour star. Trek brand steel people that are interested in that final frontier and also on lost the hatch. Josh found out one of my greatest fears and trolled me for about two hours about it. So if you want to check out that piece of therapy. Check OUT OUR PODCAST. Michael doesn't wake babies no right now when I talk babies. Don't ruin the PODCAST. You don't have it as a fear. I have it as a hate generator. Make sweet defeat he talk. Sorry guys my large adult son is talking pretty good impression of me baby and also doing impressive. Antonio being mad at me for doing Ed. Thanks I hate it thanks. I hate it. I just have to clarify babies or adults talking like adult dressing and speaking navies is what you're telling us. Nancy is not an adjective that even keep in the same sentence as babies. I saw podcast. Someone's on board with me here. I am a footnote to that. We'll take off the podcast. Mike per day Mike Bloom type. For All the weirdness that's going on right now Kerr Clark. I got nothing going on other than to season my name Emily. What's going on on Instagram? Your daily your daily updates. Yeah Monday through Friday my daily outfits and the persona that. I'm you know playing into with each each new garment. Where Very Emily outfit to again? Play loving right now the amount every week I love themselves heads fifty k. For a little while I twenty k. I lied I do have some projects going on. That are all based on facebook. I've I've in the middle of round two of my daily coffee battle where people vote on which to Currie cups advance in the Current Cup a tournament. Yesterday's battling believes between Maple Swirling Tuffy crunch and toffee crunch blue apron out the water I am also been live streaming on facebook by adventures with my Amazon. Assistant can't say her name because she will turn on where I will play such games pointless and price it right price right in his amazing game on in the Amazon Assistant Store. Where you play through seven rounds. They read a product description Amazon. And you have to guess the price. It's not as chilly literally. Doesn't like it does sound like she'll project for Amazon so much as I discovered that you can buy fifteen hundred ladybugs on Amazon for the price of eight dollars. I guess hundred nine. So that's been a live live casting through facebook that my friends have strangely enjoyed so I do have a project going on boom. Yes I do like so is the pointless on your device like the pointless the TV show. I really like great except every so often Thursday. Today's sports day and I know nothing about British rowing teams. But then sometimes it'll be fun game. I love watching the TV show. Pointless can find it on Youtube and like an American category comes up and like nobody gets it but you get it and you feel really special. Yeah I just want to tell everyone to watch as much British television humanly possible. It's convinced after years and years and years. I finally convinced Antonio Watch taskmaster. Kurt was an easier sell. He's blown through the seasons now. I'm going to get the rest of you yet. Watch taskmasters on Youtube. It is my favorite show of all time into episode one my favorite episode of that. Show IT IS I. I've seen that episode. Probably like nine getting ten to fifteen times and it makes me laugh so hard. Every single beautiful Josh hates British television. My right yeah. He told me accent. I get the concept of accents that makes sense to me but he has a really high item fat era where I really require your sub guide me through it can't housing. I can't think of a British show. I watch Netflix. Don't use subtitles. It is trickier on Youtube. Doesn't always have subtitles often anyway. I as a baseline angry. Game of Thrones Josh Is. That's why you just have resentment towards British people. After this. I've worked through that. I've worked through that. I'm not angry like there is a long time ago where. I don't know there was some like monty python related like marathon on. I was like Oh Man. I used to watch this with my dad. It's so funny and Josh was like can't do do. It's not really it's not really for me. It's just never really landed. We had we had A. I had a neuro science class in college which seemed like really fricking intense. And it was but you could bring like all of your notes to the tests and stuff so it made it like it was great and like one Out of every four. Lectures you would come. You had to attend if you order. If you attended you got like a bonus point towards the test and it was just to come and watch an episode of the Vicar of Italy parent. Love that Shane. I did it but I did not enjoy it and I'm sure it's very funny and I just. I'm just not really here or so. So the next podcast will all just be doing British accents? No that's fine. I do pretty excellent British accent. I'M NOT GONNA lie all right. Well what do I shop? It'll be. That's patron exclusive? So I don't Wanna I don't WanNa give away for free you know. I don't know if you want to hear more for me. For some reason you can check me out on the worst show. Twenty Twenty No. It's not the worst because I'm sure too hot to handle. Probably the worst the bachelor listen to your heart started this week and we said that we win podcast about it unless Hell froze over here. We are Ameican join me this week so I am joined by my roommate in Quarantine Buddy Ethan fiance. I never once called him. My fiance tough word employees employers cal. Titanic I I just I feel like even if we get married I'll probably still end up calling them like my my my good friend or something conversation with my brother. One time he can't. He has a hard time calling his girlfriend. His girlfriend to and they've been together for four years. I think we're just like not really like an affectionate families labels person. Yeah I'm just like this is my. This is my buddy ethan like you know whatever Michael Paladin. Yeah so we podcast about that so if you WANNA watch the show and listen to it you can if you just want to listen to it without watching the show. It recommend that honestly do they. Do they put up the songs from the show on Youtube or something that would be the most palatable to me? That's like the most the reason why I'm more attractive than any other bratcher French like. Oh these are actually good singer singing original songs So I think it's fun to check out not original songs all covers so far well except for one of these guys are like randomly singing by. We're ver not consider. Okay gasser original song. But they're bad they're all actually talented singers. Which is maybe not what I expected. But it's a it's a joy. Does anybody else that anything else. We're doing the better call saw we are in. It's about wrap up. We're really approaching the season finale. Next week we'll have a couple of podcasts to go still on better call Saul but really really picking up and very nerve wracking So I'm looking forward to. I guess the way that will wrap up it is. It's up to full on breaking bad show so if you're better call Saul right breaking bad. Maybe now is the time. What else are you going to start out? You'RE GONNA do Haley podcast about the challenge. Recently didn't you. Is that episode Hilarious. So Yeah I was on the Colin Network with allegory and Brian. Skelly talking about the latest episode to the challenge. I love those guys. I had a great time doing it if you watched survivor. And don't follow Brian. Scale and twitter. You are making a huge mistake. He is the funniest survivor twitter at their so. Follow Him I do that. Growing pusher recap subscribe to the feed. Got The loss podcast. Mike mentioned assault podcast Antonio mentioned. I guess like I've defeated my reputation as far as British television. But we're podcasting about killing eve. Jessica Leeson I and I guess I'm I'm loving it because I have subtitles so I watched completely British was British made Eric Out. Jodi calmer is putting on a Russian accent. And it's just such a Russian but you can't understand British and I. I'm a sleeper operatives. So always during. I'm watching Finn wrapping up the first season of succession and it was because of your podcast like literally. I mean the the wedding episodes and it was your podcast that connected the new Russian character in killing a mother of three of the kids in succession. Wow so it's perfect timing. Yeah Yeah so we're doing that. We've got the the marvel. Cinematic Universe rewatch with Kevin Mateo. And I which is really really fine. We're up to Ironman to Russian accents. Watch that got it boy. Willie's bird zoar magic. And all of that and sporadic. Final fantasy seven remake coverage as well with Ken Hong Survivor. Bon and myself. We recorded our our first impressions of game. Podcast should be up sometime pretty soon. A little bit of an edge on that wants to take an taking a minute to get that up but Tons of the Post. Show all that.

You can find me at amulet like an Omelet with an e. on both but are an instagram. And keep sending me your food questions. I'm loving them talking about a tomato paste incident.

Bachelor Greatest Seasons Ever Episode 2 + Labor of Love Episode 4

"Hey everybody. Welcome to the bachelor greatest seasons of ever up plus a little bit labor of love thrown in there. This is amy here as always with the lovely. Haley strong healy. How you doing tonight? I'm doing well. A New dawn has broke. We have come out on the other side of of something big amy. What's that? Matt James. Joke Yeah. I was like Oh. You finished watching. One of the season's we already. Know, this is huge news. This news we talked about in our last episode the Bachelor Diversity Campaign. How important in great it would be if they named a black bachelor and guess what they did, they did it. What, do you? What do you think let me know? What do you think? Well. I think you know it was an entre early morning. and I think everyone really excited. Seem to be like initial reaction. But then it was also like why right now like it seemed a little bit reactionary and. So on the one hand. I'm like this is great. This is. Huge progress something we've been wanting. But, it doesn't mean that they haven't done. All the things with the Bachelor St Campaign. Calls for it shows they're. Listening and That it was something that they wanted to respond to, so that I'm excited about. I think it's great casting. No matter which way you look at it so like. If he was going to be unclear season and end up as the bachelor. Or not. I don't know why we needed the announcer right now. I mean I know they wanted to do right now. But? I saw actions firm. Rachel Charlene and echoed. How I was feeling, put more eloquently than me. It was like mixed feelings. I am excited. I'm very excited that this is happening that this is finally happening. It does feel like a little like. Look. We did what you wanted us to do. that. That's all you need to do. This is a first step in a long line of things they need to do. To rectify the past, and to change the future, and so some of the things that Bashar diversey campaign. Outlined was including more people of color in their cast, including more people of Color in in their production team which. Is something I didn't even. Really. Think about, but it is so obvious and so necessary that that those people absolutely need to be in production was really disappointing to me. I heard Rachel Lindsay talking about the podcast. They brought them in for my season, and that's the only seasonally worked on like that's terrible. I heard that, too. So people need, people need to be brought in. On the production side as well. As in front of the camera and we need to see all sides of that. And the bachelor needs to take responsibility. For. For the show that they have created and Chris, Harrison put a statement up on his instagram. It says we're excited to move forward with both matching, says the new bachelor in Clare Crawley's the next Bachelorette. We acknowledged responsibility for the lack of representation of people of Color on our franchise and pledged to make significant changes to address this issue moving forward. We're taking positive steps to expand diversity in our cast in our staff, and most importantly in the relationships that we show on television. We can't and will you better to reflect the world around us? Show all of its beautiful love stories, the executive producers. So, that came out after they announced. Matt, James So. I think that helped show that. It wasn't just like. We think we can just take this off the checklist and that's all we're going to appease. Shows they're taking it on, and it's really a cross reality TV. We've heard survivor can have some say like me need. Representation behind the camera as well not just in the cast to get these stories told they're not whole. We've heard talk about things. He talked about on the island. That just air and You don't have the representation behind the camera, and you're not gonna see it reflected, and so I hope that it's not just like okay. The bachelor's doing this, but every show is taking this into account as well. Yeah, and not just even production but like. Editing in the you know the story lines and everything like that. It's just. Important Yeah So. I think I can speak for both of us that we're really excited about this first step. And that's what it is a first step. Right like it. Kinda reminds how excited we were for Rachel season like, but we're thinking like she was. There'd be some momentum behind it like Oh. This is a big change now. It feels more like okay. Hopefully, this is like it's not going to be like with. Rachel seasons where they were, they did that cast her, and we're like okay. We're done we. Yeah yeah, it was good to see that statement. A It is also unique to have. Somebody cast as the lead who was not? On, the show before like he's related congenitally related to tyler someone who is on the show he's. Really good friends with Taylor Cameron. And he was cast on the show and the. OF CLEAR SEASON! There was there were some comments like one of the like he was on radar before, and we know sometimes like Uber are cast. With Bachelor bachelorette potential not really for the lead or like. It'd be great if it doesn't work out with the lead. Potential and They're kind of trying to clean it like. Oh, you're going to do this before. Because you don't know how he's going to play out or anything. But I miss those days when you didn't. You weren't that familiar I've heard other people saying well. We're not familiar with him. I don't know if I'M GONNA. Be As excited to watch from that side of things, but I kind of like that that it's like. A fresh pick what he I I agree with you. I am a little thrown off by it Because I, haven't watched season in which we didn't know the person beforehand. I didn't watch a lot of the old school bachelor seasons I did watch the old school bachelor seasons like I remember vividly watching Trista season but I knew she was on the before. They were always on the previous season. Yeah! But I'm. Really excited to? To meet somebody. Along with women and get to know him in a different way than we've known the guys before. Do you think he was cast on the show. To be the next bachelor. I think. I don't think he was cast for Clare. I'll put it that way I don't think. So much younger than her. He has that tight to tyler. It's not like she. Hangs out with tyler or that group that crew she wasn't like. In season in any way, just you know. Her cast was really and to begin with, and I think it was, they're casting people for. Not. People, from Peter Season that could have been the Bachelorette and then kind of shifted gears. Based played out so I think it was. Somebody wanted in the franchise whether it's Bachelor in paradise and. Or the, Bachelor And then. There's wrinkle where he was doing. Cam and Clare called the him out with by name, even though he was doing it for charity, so it Kinda solves that side of things where they like well. I don't know if Clare once on the cast. Was He going to be on this season anyway after that so? because we had discussed that one that came up like. Is. He going to show up and they're gonNA. Talk it through. How's this? GonNa Work So. It's interesting, and then some people are wondering if. We're GONNA. Skip Clare Season. They've clarified no, like. Clare Season this happening I, she hasn't been recast or not just jumping to bachelor, so it's weird. Have this announcement so early when it's not gonNA film for until who knows when, but after Clare Season the film simultaneously either so I heard they. Really I, I don't remember where and I don't know if that's true, but I heard that they like I guess my. Film, both kind of at the same time and Eric layers in the fall and air mass in January. Be Smart from the sense of like. If they're going to get a ramp somewhere or resort somewhere and we see how little Chris has to do when it gets a little further down the road with the. So he's just like okay well. I'm going to watch. The left side of the campus now collaborates either the. Maybe they could. Have a full staff that they normally have yeah, and they kinda just like us. Like I, think it'd be tough for sure, but. Do you think. The season's would benefit from having smaller casts. Maybe are just film Bachelor in paradise or then to like. Hey, you guys move into another wing. To Intermingle. Definitely GonNa be interesting I haven't heard any developments on I haven't been looking into. The filming updates or what the new theories of what they're gonNA, do but. You know. California's opened up a little bit more, but yeah. I don't know the specifics on that. So. Interesting to see yeah overall like. I'm excited about it fresh like. It. excited. then. We're also very excited I think to revisit Caitlyn. Season It really jumped around a lot of things they didn't show. So I guess my first question to you is. What surprised you the most like. Maybe I'll just go back and forth. Some things that stood out to you. From watching it like did bring it. All back was like Oh, I totally forgot about this. Were you surprised? They left some things out. It brought some things back. I will say. Watching last night slash today at lunch. I was like. Oh. This is so great. What great season this was! Really thought back to when we'RE PODCASTING IN And we were hard on this season. We weren't hard on Caitlin. We loved her as the Bachelorette. season, the structure was so weird and we couldn't figure out why and. Watch me. In that time, it came off like they were punishing Caitlin for the choices she made. E Yeah and They just really messed with a lot of different classic structures of the show in I. Don't mind when they do that, but it didn't feel like it was done in a positive way and I don't think we saw last night really reflected. We saw it seemed like revisionist history like now. They're like totally celebrating. Yeah, they didn't even show I. Think they're very kind to her in the sense that like. They didn't show her proposal with Sean at all like if they were really truly going to be like. Hey, we're revisiting. The season's showing you. The highlights you. The proposal and the. Polls would be like you have to include that every time like what they do. The shot and they showed. Lindsey then they showed Catherine, and they're happily ever after but like. Are they with every unsuccessful one, or are they not going to show the proposal? Because that's like every other season? They'RE GONNA show. Like like for Ben Season next week. Are we not gonNA see him break up with Joe Joe. Are we going to see him? Proposed to Lauren just because then has an ounce and because Lawrence, married like I just. Especially if I feel like the bachelor so interesting, because where a lot of TV shows have lost viewers, the bachelor just keeps gaining viewers and gaining momentum. In so I'd say a lot of people who are maybe checking this out. Haven't seen these old seasons. They haven't seen kate race and I was watching. Ethan well. Yeah, it was so surprised. INCERTUS appointed that he didn't see. Sean proposed CAITLYN. He liked shot and Ali three hour clip we. He was even got really wrapped up really quickly in the nick versus Sean Storyline, and so to see. In the breakup with Nick. When Nick Limo I. Cheered, he literally was yes. and. No awareness. In Style. And so two. Then followed up with like. Nothing, we. Chris like and as you know Sean, then proposed. She accepted, and they broke up three years later. I. Think Sneers a successful relationship. Right right I don't know. I was really disappointed to not see the proposal because it did feel like. It wasn't telling the whole story and get you know through throughout the show. Yeah, let's. We'll talk to Ben earlier so then. We're not like talking about his fantasy Sweden. Because it's not like the most relevant. Whatever, but not to not see. The proposal between with who she picks. That was really surprising to me and I. Don't think it was the right choice. No, I think they could at least shown a little bit of that like. I think it's clear Sean was not going to be on the show like. People can turn. I think so. I noticed on his instagram. He was of like yeah. People are asking him I. Love Life a lot lately, not sure why like he's just kind of brushing it away, and he got a new puppy and kind of tease like there's someone special in my life now I'll let you later this. By. Trying to divert. I think doesn't want to get involved, but you know they have footage like it's the resolution of what happened and even. Nickelodeon, I'm sure both Keelan Nick were assuming that it would be shown because they both kind of alluded to nick saying like you know. It was clear like she had stronger feelings for him. CAITLIN is still a successful relationship and they spoke about it. So why not show some of it and show that like? Hey, this was. Romantic proposal, or whatever 'cause I don't remember it, but I would have liked to see a little bit of it, yeah. I was really really disappointed about that other than that. I thought it was I thought it was good. I agree with you did feel like revisionist history cutting out a lot of this stuff. Especially closer to the end where? We didn't. have. I don't know we didn't really see what it was like for them to have been in Ireland for so long. I did not remember at all that she got proposed to the Bachelor mansion like they brought up. so that's a mansion like that is not romantic at all. Why would you want that like when Sean had Thailand writing off in the sunset with an elephant, and we've seen these most picturesque settings and like that. I think that jinxed it to begin with. We're not gonNA, last like that's with us, so they treated her, like I think they flew maybe her parents out to Ireland to meet the guys and they. Ties. There had the hometowns in Utah. Do you remember they? She only met nick and Shawn's family. Oh, my gosh, I don't remember that. Yeah. Yeah this is. What what other reason do they have there like a volcano going on or something trying to think if there was something like? Is they think what they to do was go go to Patagonia in. There was a volcano, so they couldn't end up going. I guess it's hard to like. Find a new location so quick, but it doesn't make sense as to why. She didn't get to go to all their hometowns that. Doesn't make sense to me right or why? They went to Utah I I don't know I'm going to. Show, the clip her like saying goodbye to cupcake on like a cliff and. A little more scenery like they didn't show him at all. So some of the things that I remember about it. It's like if I'm still remembering it like. I'm surprised that didn't make clip show. Yeah I think that was a big one. I think. We didn't get to see the goodbye with. Jared I would've loved to see the conversation where Jarod. Told Caitlin that he voted for, but he's so happy. It's her. That was a really memorable conversation to me. Forgot I really did forget that. We started off with two BACHELORETTE's this season. I forgot Hook like I. Knew we like hated the idea? CAITLYN's and we didn't like Brit. Brought me back. I remember being like Oh wow. We did not like Brit, but we'd love Kaylin. I remember being so nervous like we knew that would not make an interesting season like yeah. And I was very clearly. Producers are not going to leave it up to chance they cast for. They're gonNA. Ask the guys like who are you? Who are you most excited to see and so? I think they wanted Caitlin. But we're just doing this almost more like a stunt or something. I don't know. I was surprised we didn't see you. Remember that guy that ran after bread and dated for a little bit eighty. I thought. When we saw him that we're getting get. Get that moment I would have liked that and I thought we'd get to talk to bread I. Mean Wasn't clamoring for it, but it just seems to make sense like okay. She can say hey. It all worked out like I'm happy now. But and then how cruel it was like. When he was like telling her I was just like well. We asked all the guys and needed this big like fake. Oh kind of thing, but then when he told Caitlin, he just let her off the hook right away, so I don't know. Why did you call out there was this not cool. About Bachelor. Yeah, yeah? It was tough. You know there are some things. I forgot like that really horrific conversation with E. N.. I had forgotten that to I. Love how Caitlin handle it though like. I would not have been that. Cool in that situation is what cried like she was like yeah, processing it giving back to him and like. Yeah. That was. Interesting to see and then I didn't realize when I. saw in I knew that was coming up, but I didn't realize because of that, she let nick back in. That caused so much drama. The guys were so upset that she just was like. Hey, I want like make sure about my feelings for the person that I was talking to you before. Any of you guys seems very reasonable. They are cast just like anybody else, but they seem more like they didn't want anyone else to be on their season. Like Hey, you had your season and it was so disrespectful for. You brought back, but. And I forgot how late and it came in yeah yeah. And then to make it like final two. They had a right to be upset, but at the same time like she was right to choose them Amac because that's where her strong feelings. Those John Worse. And? Then they were teasing this whole email saying these love letters. What this was so We're gonNA read them right. See like physical footage of it or something like printed out. was, didn't somebody. Maybe maybe it was on the Andy season. That like nick left her. A letter or something So it was just basically that What was it that Nick? He had been talking to Kaitlin before and decided that. Okay, you're going to go on the season. They were talking like well. If you don't make it and Brits chosen just like coming out with me in Chicago and it was sorta like or if this doesn't work out. And then. So. He was just like writing to her. While her phone was taken away, so these went into the ether and. Anything. And then she never saw them, and then he found them later on. But we didn't hear what it said. It was just like Chris said he read them I. Don't know why you would provide them to Christopher, read and what this does, but yeah, never before the letters well and then there's that whole weird saying with the. Like. Oh, like a bombshell! There's a bombshell and it was out. Caitlin gave nuclear as a signal on Jimmy, Kimmel or something, it was so weird. Yeah, and I even heard nick talking about interview before so. Yeah, it was like their flirting basically. Face timing. texting before the show, so it's like she's probably like yeah. I'll give you. I'll give you a little wink or whatever I'll. Make the sign. On Kimmel, but Yeah, it's interesting to go into the season. With like hair, having him in the back of her mind. Yeah and ultimately Sean. One out but. She did say like she needed towel. That last moment, so he showed up at the podium Manson to propose. And I didn't remember like how. Brutal. And we're knick fans even before it was cool. It just brought me back amy. It really dead. came up to the mansion with his here I was like. Yeah, this is. This is it yeah? He was so hot to me. Who I know he didn't realize. Up happened like during the season like I knew that like Whoa, nick look so different from Andy season. But when he showed up at the beginning of CAITLIN season, he looked the same. But he yeah, the facial hair really like meet a huge difference. Yeah. I agree so. That was the evolution of Nick. And it's kind of weird to me to that. He wasn't even a consideration for the bachelor at that time. I just don't think he was particularly liked. Liked among you and I. Liked amongst. Bachelor, nation I think even when he was named Bachelor. We were happy, but I don't think many people were. It was funny when we were watching the episode Ethan said to me He's like. Oh, so like does nick ever come back like? Does he do actor in paradise or anything? I was like just wait and see. Chris Harrison mentioned like all like you came back to be the bachelor like he was the bachelor. So I really hope we get to see his season at some point. I didn't think they were, but then I think. Feel Chris said something or Nick said something that it will actually be. And I guess there's. They're not join Rachel's. They're not showing emily mainers, and there was some like licensing issue I. Don't understand why you wouldn't have licensing for your own seasons, but. That is a factor for why certain seasons aren't airing, or that's an excuse that's being given because that's what nick had said that like his season airing, but Not Rachel's and not emily's for that reason. Because Emily's was pretty dramatic season as well and has ARI and. So I does one, but I thought, and that makes sense. Why wouldn't? That would be one that would be on my radar actually to be shown so. It'd be interesting to see which ones keep coming up and. They also always seem to throw a random like check in Chris Bachelor in quarantine so last week we saw Peter and our and Kelly and this time we got. Hannah. Mattie together. Screen we wasted time with this interview instead of seeing the proposal. That would have been easy cut like. Why do we need to see that like I guess it was teased for a while, and it seemed like Oh. Maybe there'll be something interesting, but no. If I ever hear from Maddie or hand, and again I will be happy like I. don't care about either of those people at this point. Right me either. Yeah we could have seen a little of the proposal we did see. Remember Clinton Jj. Oh, my Gosh! This was a throwback I did not remember this. YEAH SO CLINT AND JJ Villains Ville like they were all my God. What I totally forgot about that I tackled. He said that I didn't remember that they were. Talking about like Oh yeah. I love turtles like they had such a random conversation shown. But then thinking back like they definitely like sorta revised salary, presenting this, because on the show, or at least in the advertising, they were trying to play it off like they were. They were in love, and that's why Clint was trying to stay on the show. That he was being villain to just like get Caitlin to liked him so that he could stay longer on the show, and then why JJ seem to stick around? I don't remember, but he seemed to be there for a while and they didn't really. Show much of JJ, but. He also ended up on Paradise After. It was it was weird. I forgot about that. Thing that stood out to me was the. Check in with jared and Ashley and Ashely being totally cool with jared, talking about it and looking totally not cool every time. Chris asked anything about his feelings for CAITLIN. Save it's fine, it's fine, and then her face was frozen like. Yeah, and like the way he. Sorry. It's been in the past right. Hey like they weren't thinking. Ever have to see this again. It's just funny until I come out there in Bachelor in paradise. This is the world, but they came out of and she posted something today about like. She. Sang she screen shot at something from the Paparazzi like which must have been reality, Steve but like a picture of jared sending it. Put Him in paradise if CAITLIN doesn't pick him so. I think it'd be a little more light hearted about it, but I'm not in her shoes it. Seems like so long ago, like maybe she. Is Okay with it, but like her expression just didn't seem like. It was kind of cute in a way, but. were. You surprised we didn't see tanner. Jade. Because, when else would they show them? They're not going to do Chris oil season. I can't imagine. I think because Tana's such a non entity. It's like. They kind of alluded to like looted alluded to him like Oh, the cast some of your favorites, but really didn't show him at all like maybe a little bit in the background. They showed. With that guy who got drunk the first night making a comment so tanner Really like? I don't know we didn't really like even think. Jeff I'm on the show. Really. He was kind of funny as a narrator, but. Rarely was seen with CAITLIN. Yeah, yeah, but that would have been more interesting. Check in than with Ben Higgins has been higgins is gonna be on next week. Yeah, what do we care? They barely showed him with Caitlin either. So, didn't really add much to the conversation, so we could have checked in with. Tanner Jade A little better. On they had the Anna and Claire. You think of seeing them, so I'm glad that they're showing this. Clare, just any lake. Clear is next Bachelorette like no matter what happens. Like this is happening for her, which I appreciate because they feel like it has been kind of up in the air whether or not they. Just kind of skip over and billing. Sorry Air. For seeing her, and they're really being like. Hey, this is happening. Deanna. I didn't watch her season so I didn't really feel like any particular affinity or an excitement to see her. I get the sense that they're trying to brings bachelorette's in that it's like hey, we're not gonNA. Show your season. Does rate the Deanna sorry, but like right? Let's give you a nod kind of thing. Let's give you a call to be nice or something so. Yeah. I really liked her season brought us Graham. Does season brought US brooks pretty had some dramatic moments I liked it, but can't show everybody and who knows me. There's laceless shoes with these. I feel like quarantines GonNa last forever. Like why can't we just watch? The season's just to? How many forty weeks of this. Yeah. It's fun like settling in like it's. Like you I broke it up like over two days to watch it, but I was excited like. Yeah, let's get the popcorn and see what they're gonNA show. These memories back of a simpler time when we were starting to leave the house. Can leave. was that our second season of coverage because we did A and e season right, so our second Bachelorette, season yeah. Yeah that's what I meant. I think we're really in love with he at the time two. Oh, my Gosh! Were we ever bachelor paradise took the Luster Way. Absolutely. You're in love with him. For years time. It was like Oh. Who's going to be the next bachelor? Obviously. And this show. This episode made him look really good again to talking what his mom and like I didn't I'm having such a romantic date before? Even some airtime. Is the Best Group of guys we've seen. I think so. We had some really dud. Castings Like where we can't even do our draft, because he's photos are just terrible. Pick anyone yeah, terrible. Yeah I think history proves it based on. These people have been on Bachelor in paradise, and I think timing wise to that. It was just when. Bachelor in paradise was starting and. It just makes sense. They've been in the franchise little longer and more likely to get called back. Because it was Ben's even link. Was it two seasons ago or last season. To. God I have no idea who. CanNot keep track accused of a surprising choice. Yeah, and then we saw Amy Schumer. Film clips. That was Kinda. Fun To remember is. That I was so excited, I was like my real. Amy Schumer Heyday so excited to see her. Actually in in quarantine I watched her. Cooking show, which was super, cute and a lot of fun. Nice another good wreck Yeah I. Wish like I just think they did a better job with covering. Sean season seeing mark glimpses rather seem like a fun date like that like see the whole thing with Amy Schumer something. least they gave a not to it. And then tonight the end like that got me even though I got spoiled on it on social media before his I I, did get election because we have talked about how unfair that was to Kaitlin. How'd you feel seeing that? She was getting the opportunity dancing with the stars I'm really I'm really excited for her? When they were like Oh the biggest proposal. And like I knew I obviously wasn't going to be Jason Proposing Kaitlin, so I don't really know what it was going to crash came in unspoiled side no. By the time I saw okay. I didn't know what it was going to be when we saw the previews. What is this going to be? But I was really excited for her. This is obviously this is something that she's wanted for a long time and. I'm just glad that they're doing. It finally feels like a real like reckoning. Feels like they didn't let her be on, and they didn't let her. She got the offer she was allowed to do it. Because they were disappointed in her, like the season was not what they want and. They they said that they wanted like they don't. They want people to just be focused on finding love. They don't have to track even though Sean Lowe had done it. And Crystals I've done it like just before that like Oh we're shifting away and then it got to do it. You know like multiple. An glad she's finally getting this. It does feel like they're. Trying to trying to make peace with Caitlin and what? What they did to her basically like. They didn't I think it was on mental. where the finale in which they made her read. Like all the things where people were calling her a slut, which is horrific. And now they're like groundbreaking like trailblazer. You know, so. I mean she was. That's how they treated her. and. Without Caitlyn like we wouldn't have now have Hannah Brown season or have been accepted. For you know revealing lets you had sex fantasies. So. Yeah. It was nice. CK Land I wish they would've shown the proposal and then. You could still end on that exciting note seeing her happy with Jason. but yeah those a little a little weird that they didn't do that. Should we get into questions that we have on this show? So before we dig into. Later love our other shows. Yes. Let us know if you're the Labor of love like diehards that are coming just for that. I'm joined. An email from. Aiming Haley I. Just WanNa say a person who's favorite. Season is Kaitlyn Bristowe. Does is a black chick and lives in Raleigh North Carolina the same hometown is Matt James Bachelor Nation feels like it was made for me without said my question is what was your favorite moment that may or may not have gotten highlighted in the compressed version of the season when Caitlin messed up Joshua's haircut when Amy Schumer roasted Jj lean when JJ slapped himself after his confrontation with Clint Sean accidentally in Long Johns on the golf, course or something else. This Kaya sent me this email. I think maybe Sunday even Saturday. So it's funny that so many of the moments she mentioned or actually highlighted. That's crazy. They would have shown a haircut thing. That's a good thing. Yeah! It's like it's like they hacked my email or. Maybe coyotes. No! Jay Lane like the roasting was wavy. Talking can remember that at all. That was so funny and he was totally went over his head like. Yeah don't worry about that. You're not. You're not the smartest person here, nor you particularly funny. That was amazing. I think that was my favorite moment I can't really think of any moments that we're my favorite that we didn't see. A I think it was a mistake not to show. The edge of the cliff break-up where they kind of made. It seem like Chris was just like that. Jump off a cliff. And I think we should have seen the proposal I. Keep going back to that, but like we should ensure obviously. Assuming that would be shown as well. Another one of my favorite things was. The morning after Ben. After his fantasy sweet, just that kind of swagger and. Loving God. I would have liked to have seen a little bit more like show Ben and Jerry give us a little more meat on that to show how they went. Three and four I. Was Four. Yeah, and I remember here like a cute like. They're more like friend vives with they cute like natural chemistry like going like I think. They went on a road trip in Ireland. The stone, maybe yeah, and they feel like it was them who got the only acceptable. One on one concert in bachelor history we the cranberries, yes. You could have shown that. Maybe it couldn't have shown that. Maybe it was like not. Seeing. That's the licensing, but. That would have been. And I had forgotten, but I heard it mentioned another podcast Tony. The healer was on the season so. Characters like they show that hot tub guy amateur sex coach. More Quirky like because Caitlin had fun with those characters. You know yeah. Actually entertain them in conversation. And then like she eliminated like I got so drunk like, wasn't he? Like me naked and jumping in the pool so? Showing her like can handle herself, and like make fun of these guys I think would have been good. But yeah. They showed a lot I forgot about the sean like stripping. streaky me. Laugh. I was like a fun hugh moment for them. I forgot about much chemistry Sean Lee, pulling her aside to be like. Look, Hey why did you sleep with Nick? And she's like honestly I made a mistake telling you. You're the one and to trust me. Just like our face draft when she's like called his name and he was like. Hey, can I talk for sex. She thought he was leaving and you could tell. Not Want to happen. So yeah, they did you know some of those moments I had forgotten? Like predict that some of these things I totally forgot about. Joshua completely. I would never two million years thought of that. He was one of those guys that. Wasn't joe on this season to like. Yeah. He had a bad exit from this do. Not Meet Exit Right. Ruined, good. All, right? They need a sequel. The, here's another. This is an email to from Dan. Are As facebook. Starring concise one, so it could go either way now summer time has passed. Do you have any better understanding of what the Hell happened? During Peters out of the final rose with Peter Madison, and Barb, and then Kelly being in the audience Dan. Dan I would say. It makes me. Mad. because. It's so clear that. To me at least the Peter. Kelly had been talking or chatting or something. In that, the relationship with Madison was so like. Faked and dumb like what's the point like dusing? Peter got talked into doing this because he's so. Like naive or manipulable. It seemed like they either wanted to like. At the time I was like just like playing into the trolls troll audience, are there? With assured. Did you like that but I guess it must've Madison. It's like what's the point of going through that just just be like. Yeah, we didn't work out and that's fine. Yeah like they just wanted to make it look like kind of like an RA, Jason. Leave some mystery. They're. Like, Hey, maybe they'll be happy together, guys! Very Weird? I don't really know. This is her face, a Kyle Picard. They didn't show giving Sean. The final rose slash Shawn's proposal. Do you think the avoid showing the final rose for all? The season's couple isn't still together. Are you really hope not? I hope this is the only season in which we don't see the proposal, because it just makes no sense for like the storyline or even the purpose of this exercise that is showing old seasons. You know what's the point of not showing the happy ending, even if it. Didn't necessarily end up happy in the end. Yeah, I can't imagine. I could see like a little worried about balancing like that might show the Joe. Joe Thing, 'cause just happy now. She's in me. Featured on her. Own One seems like an. Maybe they'll really minimize with Lauren. Or. Maybe it depends on the relationship with the the. The lead like if. If CAITLIN had contact. Them say like I'm really upset about this and like I. Don't want it to bring like hurt my current relationship or something. Would be upset about something. Jason seems like Pretty Chill I. Don't think he would. I think they'll show Knicks for sure like he seems like fine with like talking about it in that it was successful, but it just like they weren't meant in the long run, but I'd like. She was the one throughout his whole season. So. I! Don't see how they can with all the different seasons after show. And if they go back like. I season second season like I think they'll have to show it because it's more just historic at this point. But Yeah I think definitely miss. It doesn't quite make sense so. Benz I think we'll set the tone like we'll see what they do next week. If a picket, how many times did Chris Harrison say the word intimate? And how much do you think that made his son regret ever helping him? I think I. Think Son just regretted helping him from like the very beginning, he just didn't have a way out. Probably. We need to see him like every time in the corner there. is so weird again all the time we wasted looking at Josh I feel like we could seen these some of the proposal. And if he's controlling it like it doesn't seem like he wants to be in that shot. Yeah! justify Enberg, which of these two guys felt more embarrassment and regret while re watching the night one footage from five years ago Sean, e, the dude who's Chiron read amateur sex, coach or Ryan? The Dude announced to room full of people that he's horned up. Do, you think either of those guys were member. They were on the Bachelorette. Any of them like. tweeting it out right now. Instagram unit like really excited. That's airing again. I'd say. Might excited I don't think Brian is right. Yeah I, mean they. Could have shown a lot more probably so. It didn't make them look bad. At least Shawnee had a really cool entrance. La. Then Justin farmer. Do you think clint still as in bed and cries thinking about the time five years ago, and his best friend betrayed him on national television. Probably Yeah, where's plan? Where Clinton? Jt like did they make amends? Like? Why was Clinton ever now? There's no way I got seems like someone they would call back, but. There's no way they man's. Think so. Justin Feinberg with all the talk forgotten about that drawing that he did though of Chris Harrison Mom triceratops. Just and with all the talk about sex and sex education. So how do you think Chris Harrison's initial conversation with his son Josh about the birds and the Food Chris talk about Nick and Caitlyn season when explaining things to then he neural Josh. I think maybe he just showed the showed him like the sex day. Right about that date. Oh, I hated the yeah, and I didn't remember that it was a prank like even remember that it was after. Can you believe then was like took sex ed like as a teachable in college? No I did not know that did not. That surprised me. I guess it was like the Best Ben clipped they had. What I remember like. kind of like surprised that he was even chosen as the bachelor like I just felt like he was kind of bland on her season like. It didn't seem like. It seemed like he's a good looking guy, but. Chemistry with. Other obviously. We didn't get to see a lot of like content from him from remember, and they didn't show much. Yeah, they could've set josh sitting in the audience. He could've been one other. Card by sitting there actor. Just go sterling. Please talk about how uncomfortable Chris asking. Ashley entered sex life made you. Her parents I hate it. And Hong made them to. Just like we're not chill for that like they were not prepared, I don't think I like that. Jim Call! was layered. Jessica Sterling also wants to know does have the best overall casselman same question you asked in recent history, so yeah, we could answer. I really do think so. Yeah because I feel like recent past like. There's always like even someone who gets to Lake Final Six. Really. We've never seen this person. They've never gotten a date. You just think about Joe, Joe's cast and how much we hated every. Child that like. People are upset about. Has Want Robbie off. About Luke Some Feinberg time. Do you think nick vials fans? How much time do you think nick file spends self reflecting and wondering how during his two stints on the Bachelorette? He lost out to overly possessive. Watch Os. Yeah, that's tough, I am. I also. Told Ethan. Then he was on the season before, and he dumped a final two, and he was like no, no, like all know poor guy I was like. This interesting like I. I guess I always Liked Sean. More, but he did really behave terribly in. That season towards just like couldn't even call nick by name. But I think just because I liked them together. Whereas with Josh like we got to see that like. His true is at other times as well. So it's interesting because I think to in both those seasons. Nick was a huge factor in their breakups. Even, Sean couldn't really get past it, and that's definitely like Josh could not get past that I guess Andy. Maybe didn't reveal that like what happened and was really upset that Nick. On after the final rose so. They came on the show, but weren't really cool with the concept of the show the former. So. Yeah. I think nick like he's loving. TV right now us. Anytime, he can get on television for anything. Yeah, he's just like and here's. Why because I've heard him on chatty bras and he's just like he's like reliving his greatest hits like I like I love like how that breakup look like that was my best moment on on all these shows like he's just like living for it right now, so I'm for. Let's see that. Was it for questions? Let me, just make sure. Yes, so. Carefully Shimon Excited Caitlin on the. which yeah like I am going to have to watch at least her clips. And I can already see it. There's going to be one of her dances is in be to her single. Find a way to like. Do version of it and. All her bucket list. Things are coming to so at school for her. I still have and listened to I. Should I've only heard clips, but yeah I think I'm sure that or some other song like she'll get to debut assault like she's. She's smart, she like. has like created so many businesses for yourself and. Show us a star, full advantage as well. As she should so? That's really cool and she could win. She's has a dancing background. Yeah, HAMSTER! Behind her. So. Yeah three, four. And went dancing with stars. We'll get to film. That's very close contact like. Are they gonNA quarantine somewhere as well so. Whenever that foams. That's exciting. All Right Labor of love the other show that we're watching it airs on Thursday nights on Fox with the lead Christie looking for future father of her children. So. This episode let me see I. Actually took notes on this because Ed. Remember. Yeah, we see through the bachelor I thought. This was another nice episode. Anything. That's this whole show is just kind of Nice. It feels like relaxing doesn't feel super intense. Dramatic doesn't. The drama doesn't feel like super intense I just. Think Christie has a very calming presence which I. Take. I'm liking the show I think it's kind of fun. So. We have a couple dates in this episode. The first one goes to Alan. But not until after he brings her some food that he made for her. which kind of? Got In on. Oh, my God I can't. Listen Keith's. Idea to bring her some Fried Chicken I. Think I would have preferred the fried chicken. This was the question I was going to have for you. As you know your co host on the top chef for above and. snapchat shadows, so I was going to say like. Would you rather gotten Allen's Stu ore? The chicken and The Fried Chicken. Greens or something? I Bet I would've loved Alan Stu. But. It's hard to say no to homemade fried chicken I. think if I'm like filming all day living in a house like STU would be like. I wouldn't be as excited even I'm sure it was very good. Allen just kind of overstepped. A stewardess faster to me or You just like went over there I, and that made through a wine glass on the ground and he ended up like. Finding a way to like. One of Alan I didn't think it was going to wear it because I thought it would be like. Okay well. He's going to put it on the doorstep when Alan's coming back nightcap, but Allen's going gonNA. Come in for a nightcap, so that's GonNa win, but. Alan Act he wanted to come back and then. Didn't go in with Christy. Like what was what was that about? Like? I still don't understand I. think maybe he wasn't that into her. Me because it was like. They have. One. Smashing things dates like we've seen on the BACHELORETTE before. Spray pain. You know your fears or her. What's been holding you back on? To handle things like that and then destroy it some way so. They seem to have chemistry on that date. She obviously like found him attractive. She was saying but This lost a lot of points where he. was more concerned about the guys back at the house, and not wanting to like go in and knowing that he said something like. They have interesting feelings for you as well or something like that and. Maybe he just felt like. They actually really like her and I'm just kind of like I'm not sure so. Do I want to overstep? I'm not a serious about it. Yeah, I thought it was. I thought it was pretty pretty strange honestly. One of our favorite things to say about the bachelor and it applies here is like. Don't spend your time talking about the other people in the house. That's true even when you're just. Yeah, it's interesting. We don't usually see this. Yeah, it's kind of. Like We're broken down and it's like so much fun back at the house like that's not. Will we start Keelan season? They showed that clip of. Clint tax. Jj like he was talking about like. Yeah, we're having a lot of fun like and so I think she was like well. It's not about Jj right now. Between you, so I'm not a good, not a good look. But I guess he sticks around until the end, and he's one of the people that she. Wants to talk to. And another thing we don't usually see on the Bachelor Bachelorette is. She actually lets him like she's looking like. Somebody like in my twenties that I probably would have. Kept around. Yeah, she looked like analyze. No, this is like he did not prioritized me. So I love that that was something. Love Interest Section here. you know I love how much her? Christina's and how she'd looks at relationships, so it's it's. It's fun to see this in I'm hoping this is what we get from. Clare Season because she is a little bit older. We really do get that like I'm here to waste time. If you want to spend time talking about the other guys in the house great, you're gonNA. Leave because. This is about me and our relationship, and whether or not I can find partner. Totally rooting. I want cleared like get rid of the hottest guy like three weeks and he'll be shocked like. Don't give them a chance at. Like all the guys. Another interesting point now is like all the guys know like. They're not going to be the bachelor on her season so. They will two years now. Who knows but like they have to be there for Clare or social media followings. It's not gonNA be for other not getting back after this so. Interesting. And so then there's a second date with Gary who feel haven't seen a whole lot from and I feel it didn't even rarely. From him, and where like it was good in that it show that he was a really great with kids, but Heating I don't think they kissed her anything. Because as soon as the kids laugh, he had to host a birthday party for the neighborhood, mom. Apparently. She's like Oh yeah Kristin. Davis said you could host later. Here's all the kids like not set up at all, but. They finally got their longtime in the Bouncy House, and then was at Stewart, a couple of the guys came over and was like. Oh, we gotta pull Christie away now. Sorry. We're I. It was interesting that Keith was like I'd be so pissed if this for me. This is so stupid like I don't want kids on my day. There's church kids, but I don't want them on my date, and it's Kinda like well. Why are you there? Those this is for you bud. Yeah, these are like they called all these things like tests up until this point and they're like well. There's no like tests this week, but there's dates, but that is responding to it like that. That's probably not like if she finds out about it. Probably not good and they do a game with whiteboards. And I wanted it to be like okay you right? You actually answer the question right one word. But they all seem to write essays on these whiteboards leaning. You WanNA boy or girl I and they would write like an essay. I need. My last name to be continued on. On that I guess everyone else was. Like. I mean I guess. Maybe that was the test that she didn't want them to just like say. Their first instinct or whatever? But then Matt like really. He was kind of like doing. knows. This episode handle the Whiteboard game. He's just like I'm not into this and so asked you on a voyage gophers. He wrote Doc. Aches. And then like the childcare answer didn't sit well with Cristea. Because he didn't seem to take any involvement in that, and wanted her to take care of the kids mixed with his family, so she was. About didn't match up with her answer. so yeah, then he kind of. I, Love Jerry's answer. I think it was the one to be like me. Myself up a good career, so that I could do this. School. And then. We saw a couple of mini dates where? Caraway for this blindfold date to have like. Chocolate covered strawberries, and she was loving that I would never in my life want to do this the blinds. Please don't blindfold me. Snacks are good though. Do have a snack. Yeah, but I want to be able to enjoy the snack and see the snack and not be worried if I'm being kidnapped right a half to think, Kyle. It's one on one next week because she keeps talking about Kyle and they haven't had that time, so. Then we saw Trent as well. We haven't seen them one on one, but he went over to her her side of the house, the other house across the way and Potter the to step. Marcus starts worrying that he's falling a little bit behind. Because he had like the first states that Leszek Syndrome we see on bachelor about. Wou? I thought it was interesting. I will say I like how honest. Christie's being to the Karen to the guys. Like that? She said to Trent like you're so different, but I like that. You're you're giving me some fun like that I wouldn't expect you. Know I like I like that. She's telling him that she's telling us that I love him any day I think it's important to be able to get time and they think Christie really appreciates the guys who put an extra Africa. Get to know her. Like you said we see her. Call a couple of guys over to talk to at the end. So! Does she talked to you? She talks to Matt Allen Heath and Trent. Alan and Matt are the two guys. She sends home. She just thinks that they don't have any connection Allen was because she wasn't focused on her. Matt, he just kind of like. It didn't have the same expectations for relationship and for a family of Chrissy. Dude I think those are completely reasons. In Keith entrenched RT people she wanted to commend. And it's interesting, too, because she hasn't had that. extended time with them, so we don't usually see on these dating shows like us you. There's people that they never get the one on one and they get sent home because it's just like it never went there, so I like that she's like okay. I gave these other guys a chance, but then I'm finding out things about them. Maybe they were initially at the top of her list, but. They don't actually match her criteria in the end, and so it's like. Let me get to know these other guys and get rid of the ones that even though the audience doesn't know them that well like. She's trying to get to know them. I don't think anyone the guys in the house. There's some conflict with Keith like they're like. Oh, here's a temper. She doesn't know about it, but nobody's brought that to her attention yet so I don't know if that's going to be a storyline coming up or not. But then Marcus decides to walk her home. which is just like? Ten feet. But I love it really love. This movie will be like Hey. I'm going to walk you home I'm going to make sure I'm on the top of your mind. They had a really like. Like passionate kiss. Don't often like in the kiss on the show, but I was like appreciative of this one and I think and I love. What did she tell him like? You for next year knows you said you're the one who made this a real for me. All I love that I loved I loved it. I think mark is the front runner here and I think both of us would be pretty pleased if he was gone. He can stop finding shows to be on. Speed happy. Sound like he's like reduced like. Reduced ours on his job to like make room for a family, so it just seemed like perfect for him in. With his job, yeah, that'd be really cool. Yeah. Yeah that'd be like the seem like full circle. There's tie you know. I would have thought Allen. And Marcus the top Stewart's up there too, so now the hell out of it. It's like I'm really reading Marcus. down. Too. Yeah. So that's it for that. Anything else you're excited about how you recommend an Emmy Schumer's cooking show I was wearing teen anything else coming up you to plug or help you? I can't remember if it was a guy.

We are back again, Robin. Akiva, Nita podcast episode number thirty four when we are going to be doing some more bantering. That's right. It's I can't believe it's just banter episode number two, the bantering, and here is a man who bantered about so many different subjects like Seinfeld that time that he did a whole rewatch of the TV show Seinfeld in a podcast form or when he banters about the NFL and other subjects like geography with Alexander Chester on the Thursday fans podcast here. He is the banters banter are great, Akiva Winokur as going rob wouldn't intro. Thank you so much intro, and you and I are back together about like seventy two hours after RIC. Bording our last podcast. Yes, I feel like we just spoke. We have a weird relationship in which we always speak, but it's very. It's very very structured. It's you know, it'll be like every Wednesday for ten weeks. Then we'll move it to like Sunday. And it'll be like every Sunday for ten weeks. But not really during the week other than a couple scheduling emails. Do we normally speak during the week? Right. We usually speak one time per week. Well, historically, we recorded the Seinfeld podcast on Wednesdays. But yeah. So usually, we still talk once every seven days, and that's it. Yeah. All the when we didn't do the the after Seinfeld in November of seventeen when it end. Yes. Or I guess after curb because curb I think ended after Seinfeld. So maybe early December seventeen until this started which was the summer, we really did not speak. May we sent a couple emails and eight months, but I really didn't speak to you in that eight months fan. We didn't do any podcasts together. I don't think. Yes. But I think it was all of that time apart that was needed to sort of like erupt into the supernova, which is Robin. Akiva, Nita podcast. Yeah. No. I think having a break is good for Latian ship did pitch that. And my wife said, no. I'm teasing. I'm teasing. Can. I tell you. What just happened to me tonight? Sure, I had really like one of the happiest moments my life happen. So we were supposed to record. We we sort of had an open at the time. I said whenever I'm home will start and for whatever reason that it's too boring to get into my wife needed the car. She was in the center of town. And I was about a half hour away from home. So I figured okay. I'll take take the bus because she she needs the car to take the kids home. And so I get to the bus and the bus has this new fangled thing. We're tells you how many minutes until the bus comes like an electronic board. Okay. And it's it's great if it's too, but a lot of times it's frustrating because if you're just sitting there, like listening to music or playing on your phone, you don't really know if it's like six minutes or twelve minutes, but if you see like twenty two minutes, so the next bus. Then it's a nightmare. Right lee. Come back leave where I had nowhere to go. Like there was nothing. It's like it was nighttime. There's nothing to do. So I said, you know, what I live thirty minutes away. Never get any exercise a walk home. And then I'll be ready even early to speak to rob. So I started walking I E mail you. I'm like, hey, I'm going to be home. I'm going to be back early. Great. Let's go early. And then I realized like because the way you drive is different than the way you walk in my neighborhood. I had never been on some of the streets that you walk down. I'd never walked home from from this part of town before and a certain point rose. I have no idea where I am. And I ask a guy like getting out of his car. Like, hey, do you know where when I say the name of my street, and he's like, oh my God. That's like your you walk the whole wrong way. So then I realize I don't even know where I am. I phone is dying. It's not like my wife can come get me. 'cause she's with the kids. My daughter's doing some show. Oh. And so I'm walking for like, forty minutes, and like my legs, and I do know extra. So my my legs are giving out Atra. No, I like all right fine. I'm just going to call a cab within a real cash a lot of kids don't take credit cards. I I don't have Uber on my phone, and I can't download it. Because my phone's one percent, it's not gonna work. This is such a poorly thought plan, and I'm like, so I think I'm further away than when I started and then of the quarter my eye. I'm like the only person on a quiet street, and I see a bus come down the street. And I realized that somehow on the the bus that I didn't take a half hour ago has as picked me up come right there. And like I wanted to kiss the bus driver on the math like I was I've never been so happy. If he if he was like, it's one hundred dollars to take the bus one mile. I would have one hundred percent on it. And I got home, and I was able to eat and here, we are really it saved my night from being just a total trainwreck. Here. We are. And for those of you listening. Saying, okay. I get it banter cast. Okay. That's bonus banter because this is going to be structured banter day. We have topics that we're going to be bantering about you just got some free banter. Yeah. All right. So everything going forward. I guess we should do listener submitted banter ideas. Yes. So I without her permission. I said send your bathroom ideas to Jessica sterling without asking her, and she will compile them and send them to me. And I know she's a great sport. And she did it no questions asked did a great job. So she just sent me to me. And I have not seen the ideas sixty eight ideas from the listeners. Yes. Almost a very nice number. I think that eight or nine of them eleven of them say the best ideas. So just put them in categories. We'll start with the best ideas human star with just recapping wind shut up. Tim's money. Yeah. Well, let me just break down the numbers. And then we'll so it's eleven great eight good and forty nine others. She didn't say bad, but the Ford so we will at least for one second each touch on all sixty eight of these ideas. But yeah, let's talk about last week before we start these sixty eight ideas. Okay. I thought that shut up. Tim's money was very well received. I thought yes. A big hit. I didn't know what people would think with the game with the game show aspect. We did it. We went back to the well, sometimes when you go back to the well after a hit people are like I like the first one better, not just in podcast movies and all sorts of things. But no, I think this was equally well received this jeopardy, and it was different also. Yeah, it was it was different. We didn't do jeopardy too. We didn't go right back there. I think that's. That's why it works. So when we do something like. The draft. I mount Rushmore. It's like all right. At least if you're gonna do them both. There's a slight twist on it. Yeah. People liked it. Shut up Tim. I don't want to say like he's a lock to come back. But he would be allowed back in theory. If you nailed himself or another did a good job and. On you ended up being the subject of a lot of controversy people weighing in on whether or not Akiva is cool weighing in on whether a kiva has a problem with Canadians. Whether Haley strong is cool. I'm sorry for getting my friend. Hailey strong involved. I feel like I do one of the fun parts about nap as we call out people without just like all right? We're going to talk about people. We know. But I'm happy that. There was no very intimate mind. Kef. It is very intimate podcast. We try and get as many people from your community involved as possible. But I think a lot nobody questioned Haley Strong's coolness, I will say a lot of people questioned my the amount of people whose like what are you talking about? Of course, keep is cool. It wasn't zero. But also was not a minion. It was not Ted. That's a core. Minion not the yellow minions got. Yes. So not a lot of kief backers out there. If you listen to the Easter egg at the end of last accepts owed, you hear my wife, also not on team cool team Keita's is cool. No. I mean, what does it say about her? The cooler than her. So there's no way she school. Also. All right. Yeah. That was the first question showed up Tim said can you guys talk about Canada? So I guess I just want to apologize to Canadians and say I'm sorry for saying you're not cool special apology today. Learn through my grandfather was born in Toronto and. He was cool. He was an artist. You know? I can I tell you what I was thinking this kind of depressing to start off with. But I'm sure it. So my grandfather was was very good artist. He died in one thousand nine hundred five relatively young seventy one years old. And when I when I thought about this I googled him. And so little comes up, even though like he built a lot of structures, especially in synagogues that still exist. He stated a lot of stained glass walls. If you're familiar with glass walls. And it's kinda like when you will nothing comes up, and like he had a successful life. And it made me think like especially people who were born before the internet era like almost everything about them as lost once they're gone. You know, you might have pictures, but like there's no record of of like anything they did unless they like have Wicca pedia page unless they were famous. You know, it's kind of. But I think the next generation won't be like that. Like if my ancestors for some reason care about my opinions on. Serials like, good luck. They're in luck. Yeah. Unless all these podcasts like get the lead in the internet stops existing like are or like, you know, the world stops existing. I don't know you can't even get the podcast that we're on grant land. I don't know how much thinking I don't think like, and who knows maybe there's just maybe they'll be so high tech the same way like VHS is. I'm sure nineteen Ninety-two. You think like well, of course, VHS will always work and now it's like a huge ordeal. If you wanted to get something off VHS, so it's possible. Like, you won't be able to hear this fifty years in the future. And then my kids will migrate my kids are already here. But my grandkids would was this the first banter topic? Well, yeah, it was just it was about Canada, Google, my grandfather. And and, you know, maybe Tim western says talk about mixing condiments and selling them as one such as mayo chop. Yeah. We touch on this on news. Af they have Kranj. They have a bunch of stuff. You know? I don't know how convenient that really is to just take. To condiments and put them in one bottle. I don't know if anybody that really likes. Oh, it's peanut butter and jelly in the same bottle that part of the fun of that is mixing it together yourself. Yeah. Can I can I pitch a condom into you? Nikki. I'm you're a trader Joe's a great comment that's becoming more popular in America. Really love to talk about food. But go ahead. Okay. It's condiment. So I'm not even sure it's food. Food. That's that could be a whole another podcast. So it's called Ombu. Trader Joe's just started carrying it. Ombu AM. It's it's a Kapiti calls it a Tango, mango, Tangy, mango, pickle condiment. It's it's basically mango, but it's not it doesn't taste. I'm not a big mango fan. It doesn't take some angry. There's there's a lot of salt vinegar and mustard in there. You could get it for a couple of bucks. Trader Joe's people listening tried out. You think it's started with the wreckage is in the nineteenth century and Middle East and India. So you could put it on. I mean, a theory put on your chicken like if you wanted the chicken the less boring. You could just put it on chicken. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. But you could really put it on on. Really any sort of. I don't know how often like it's mostly put on philophical in Schwartz in the Middle East. Okay. I don't know. How often you're eating Schwab? Not often. You're guy you told the. Schwa- story on the Seinfeld podcast that I think you got scared off from Schwab from place sitting out. I'm not into it. But I'm I'm by you, call that a MBA everyone at home should try Ombu. Okay. I mean, I try it. I'm not mad at it. But it doesn't seem like anything. I would like run out and purchase. Todd says talk about the Kentucky Derby controversy, misl- UCS. There is a controversy. But I really could not be less interested in horse racing. Yes. So I usually will watch the triple crown, but I happened to have had to leave the room. And I missed the Kentucky Derby, so I didn't really follow controversy as much as I would have had been watching the race. But basically a little used rule is that you can't impede. You can't sort of like box out another horse during the race. And the winner did it, but the, but when the winner won nobody realized like, oh, this is going to be up for review like it's a Bank plate the plate. So people probably Cassar tickets, they bad, and they turn the change the channel and didn't realize and the twenty minutes later after review they changed the winner, and obviously millions of dollars changes hands because if you were the winning her horse, you got to be sold stud and make a lot of horse babies and make millions of dollars. So it was a big deal. But. You know? I don't have a lot of Kentucky Derby takes. Yeah. I wouldn't have overturned the call. I think it's like one of those like pass interference things where I think you can go back and then call it on the review if it didn't get called on the field eh Joe says, which he NFC championship game problem. Yeah. Yeah. With saints fans had field day with with the horse racing stuff. Yeah. Are you a rogue guy? Joe wants to know a rogue like do I wear a robe? Do you own a rope? First of all, I don't own a robe. I don't wear row. Robe for your for Father's Day this year, the only scenario where I would wear a robe was if I was on the big brother H O H would where it around the house. Now, I want to use for a. Yeah. I'm also not a robe guy. The one thing that I'm like sort of how they say a lot of women become their moms. I don't know if that's true or not, but this, but but I've sort of started like checking for traces, my wife, becoming her mom not that it's necessarily bad thing or a nice lady. But her modeling good thing. I mean who knows that her mom is when we have these like form of Friday night dinners where people normally like where suits. They get dressed up. Her mom has like a fancy road. Fancy robe, but it's still not fancy like to her. It's like, oh, this is like my nice robes. I wear to the meal when everyone else is in there Friday night best. And so I did tell my wife like five years ago like please never become the robe laid. Right. Like, I do not want. And so she ever gets a robe. I might have to hide it. That's my big fear in life is my wife becomes the robe lady. Yeah. Yeah. Don't you? Don't wanna be. The spouse of the the robe lady, I feel like we should tread lightly here. All the robe guy is generally like the robe, lady fine. I it's not to be the road guy is usually a creep. Right. Wear robes. It's not great. I mean, Tony soprano was famous aerob- guy. Yeah. Get the paper. But I guess now that people don't have a paper on their front lawn. They don't need to wear the robe outside. Yeah. No, no, not a robe guy. That's not me Tim west and says can you guys resolve the chicken meat issue? Yeah. It's me. I mean. Yeah. I think I was wrong. I realized I realize we're still in the good. The these are the great ones lists. Listen. This is what this is what interests jets assume that great. No, we're in the great one. The good one is coming up soon. Okay. Said these were great or these were self proclaimed everybody. These are the ones these are. She wrote best ideas. Okay. Waiting rooms reality Curtis wants us to talk about waiting rooms. I mean, what's to say about a waiting room? I once was in the hospital with someone like five years ago. Yeah. And we're in the emergency room. It was like a big emergency room. And I realized like I'm going to get much sicker in this emergency room people, spinal tap sneck. So it was like there's so much germs that are that are around the hospital like this is more dangerous than just not going to the hospital. So I don't know. I don't know if that cancel waiting room. You're just in the emergency room waiting. Yeah. But that was that was my worst waiting room experience waiting rooms are really I think what's keeping the magazine publishing industry alive because I agree. I agree other than that. I mean, I like to pay for them. Rob like if you're a dentist. Do you have to pay for like architectural digest question that stuff? I don't think. So they send the two for free. Yeah. We'd have to ask us discount. Do we have any dentists? Listeners 'cause waiting rooms are like, you know, some doctors don't have their own waiting room, but every dentist a waiting room gal dentist correspondent, I don't think we have one we have a dental correspondent dente listener, though, they just need to right in and let us know because they have magazines ipads in the waiting room, and you wouldn't even want to pick up the ipad. That's been sitting in the waiting room forever. That the magazine doesn't seem like it has. Yes germs. That is weird. It should be grocer could have been red flagged into the bathroom. Also for all, you know. Yeah. You know about that? So that's a really good question about the publishing industry. Are they sort of like somehow in the waiting room lobby? They wanna keep those wait times longer. See read their magazines. Yeah. Big waiting room is is a force in the publishing industry because got an interesting question that we discussed that is a newsstand near me. I don't know how they stay open who's buying magazines. Maybe you know, what maybe the magazines or the loss leaders and he's just selling. The waters and sodas are keeping them open. Maybe. Harry says rob can you cast the RA any P movie cast, the movie who quibble a lot of different versions of this who would play rob. Oh, okay. So who who would play me? I mean, I don't really get a lot of like I feel like when I was younger person. Yeah. I used to get who I look like now now now I get that. I looked like survivors loved ones. That's the scent of what I get nobody. Nobody gives Nevins. Yeah. Yes. So when I was younger, I used to get a lot of you look like Ross from friends you look like Adam Sandler, you look like the guy from American pie. Those were all common. I don't hear a lot of looked like basically anybody that's in a plaid shirt. I looked like them. Who'd play me. I also don't get a lot of sadly, I don't look like a lot of celebrities. Who would you want to have play, Hugh? No, this is very boring movie. Yeah. I don't know what the movie's about it could be harmed movie people could be killing off the RA p Kasa characters. Yeah. Like, I seen Chester gets get slit, and that would be, you know. Are you to the harm? Would you watch? It would you like harm? Oh, I guess I would watch it who would who would be the murder, though, Missy I think it's missing alley last year. They're like a duo alley. Slab alley. That's pretty good. Haley, strong all of the women that you've wrong. I don't think strong as mad at me right now. I thought I thought she would be maybe I listen to school. I think in all the Canadians are cool. Mhm Kyle wants the will RAM EP as currently constructed last where we're going to run out of ideas. Yeah. I mean, I I right now like we're we're in a good run. I think the wheel is loaded with good ideas. Is it gonna last ten years? Probably not. But I don't I don't think there's an immediate ending coming. Right. Yeah. I don't think that we are running out of gas. Just yet. I mean, I think we also have the option to have our season finale, go on a break real. We were on a break. Yeah. So I I think we're okay right now. Yes, a Kyle. That was Kyle Michael j Clarke says who had the better career Damon Affleck. I would say that critically acclaimed. I think that Matt Damon has been the better success story. I think he's in more Oscar movies right Naff like is in blockbuster movies. Yeah. Well, I don't know. I think that the born movies all did really. Well, so I think that'd be interesting to look at sort of like the total box office and the Aflac Batman movies where not necessarily lighting the world on fire. Yeah. I think I think those are sort of the merit almost four him. But Aflac didn't affect direct some serious movies where I don't think Damon is directed yet. Or maybe just I think that Ben Affleck if you were going to put them side by side, I do think that may be the direct to'real credits for athletic might go in his favor. But I think in terms of like the body of work. I think it goes to Matt Damon. But I think. Still like each other. There hasn't been a falling out to the best of my knowledge. But yeah, it's hard. These Hollywood relationships are hard to maintain friendships or or dating if we're looking at sort of like the overall career, I don't know if they're if they're friends, and I thought that Aflac has more missteps along the way momentum he was with talking to Bill Simmons and was like seemed like he was on some sort of substance. Well, he definitely has had issues. Yeah. He's had all dad, and then everything with Jalen person life has been much cleaner than well. Although he's gotten into. In hot water with a lot of his like statements about like, he's been a defender of the Harvey Weinstein defender, but they definitely have not distanced themselves enough from this about. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's harsh. They have disavowed. But they when they have conversations like the one told me with Bill Simmons Harvey Weinstein is like a pivotal character in their career. And they talk about him as if he's a normal guy and not like a history's greatest monster. Yeah. Like, he's just Harvey. I'm sure they they hate him. Let's give them some benefit of that. But it's still weird that they're like willingly bring them up in interviews the movie where he was shrunk. That was downsize. Oh, yeah. Damon yet. They've definitely had clunkers recently. It's possible. They're both of their fastballs are gone. They might play us in Renate movie at this point and this projector that would really be who you want you. I mean between Damon and Affleck Affleck, first of all is a foot taller than me affects us. Jr. I guess they wouldn't do it then. Yeah. I would get I would be lucky to get like one of these guys get like, maybe Charlie day. Okay. And you could get MAC when he's jacked Magna. Jax do beach body on demand wherever you live magazine says where do you think missing library book is I need to return it who's this Megan's e? Yeah, let's see. Well, where could she have taken it? I don't know. Maybe is it under the seat in the car, sometimes those library books have like that plastic coating on them, it can be very slippery. Are you good at finding things when they're lost in the house? Eventually, but say, I'm very funny things like when there's a missing earring which happens frequently. Yeah, I'm not even asked the help. They know I'm bad at finding things old man is an not. I'm not good at it. Yeah. Well, I had a great find recently when I was in Philadelphia that Chrissy Hof BAC came to the survivor live know it alls. She's a former survivor player for the we don't like to talk about survivor on this podcast, but she didn't end like her. She had a diamond ring fell off, and it was dark, and she was just she she'd given up. She was like she was like, oh, I guess, you know, it's it must be gone. And I was. Able to track down her diamond ring. In the darker sooner. Yeah. When one for you. So that was good. And the last of the best ideas lap says how about them Mets Metzer in a bit of a spiral. I mean, hopefully, this will be maybe a couple of days before we post as podcast, hopefully, the a couple of games against the the Marlins might be just what the tonight it's an issue because I don't think they really pitcher to go tonight. Yeah. So it's not great. It's not great right now. And hopefully, the Mets can come out of this death spiral is Mickey Callaway gonna make it to June. I I was thinking that I think this series has to go. Well for that for sure be. Yes, I there is definitely he's going to be the scapegoat. That's the manager. We'll get out of baseball within ten seconds here. But. Yeah. He's great. It'd be fun to have a great manager. But I also think there's not a lot of upside and firing the manager in the middle of the year, unless you know, he's just not j I think that was when they brought in Riggleman that they're going to go to him. But I have no feel for rhythm Willie got fire. The middle of the year right Willie Randolph got fired on like a June road trip. Didn't he? Yes. Famously in. It was in Anaheim Anaheim, I think news Jerry manual became the manager for juryman manual, what a character character. He was a character fund inter that we're up to the good ideas and character for a manager. I don't know Calloway's is such a paper pusher. Yeah. He's boring. Johny? Denny then dollar says what's the minimum number of tickets? You think an RA live show would sell what the small city all the show and still had a December. Then these fifty so the second question, they answer is definitely at best only one, right? I can't imagine it would travel well outside of New York City. I would not think so I would think so, but so how many how many cities like hypothetically, go back to your going to Minnesota idea? So if we if we had a live Renee in Minnesota, how many how many people would be there. Well, I think that's a different crowd because we're going to baseball games. Also, you know what I mean like people wouldn't necessarily becoming just for the live show. Maybe they'd make a trip out of go to the mall of America. But it still wouldn't be more than fifty. I can't imagine especially since it'll be relatively short notice since we haven't said anything yet. So if we went to Minnesota. A week later. And there was no baseball game. How many people how many people could go there? However, many listeners we have in Minnesota divided by two whoever's busy like I I don't have a good gauge what do we have about seventy something. There would be a little bit more interest. Because I think it would be kind of like a Robin kiva fantasy camp where it would be a lot of like intimate access as opposed to like a know it alls, where there's, you know, three hundred fifty people there, right? And also right like when we did one time when we did Seinfeld. The night before like, it was fun. But also it was like it was just the appetizer for your six million seat venue than the next night, which I'm sure you were a little more nervous about than than the Seinfeld show. The Seinfeld show itself, by the way, I think is h well people say they listen to the live show. And it's really funny. I think the actual show was funny. Okay. Well, I think that a live show would be fine. I think we could probably get fifty and a lot of cities. I think that a hundred would be a struggle. Yeah. The one thing the one cool thing is we wouldn't know what it would do. I think you'd have to spin the wheel. And have a lot of different options. Well, I think it'd be fun. Well, we we'd have to have a special live show wheel of things that could do live as opposed to what if you could like all right. You can watch these seven. But then we'd all watch it for like twenty two minutes. And then and then talk about it also like you'd have stuff like that. We'll save move. Well, that will that'd be part of the appeal of the live show that we start the live show with a wheelspin go on the road with this idea. Yeah. All right.

Yes. Yeah. If there was Justice in this world, I would be his height, and he would be my now would make much more sense. Yeah. But I mean, I don't think of you as being a very short person. That's very nice. If you're up I will say, I believe I've mentioned this for the first time, I met your wife. Somebody said, you're sure someone someone had just come over to me and said, well, you're short one of your lovely listeners hand. And she said I thought you'd be much shorter to me, which is a compliment. Okay. I don't think of myself as a short person. But also when you grow up in this like modern orthodox Jewish world. There aren't a lot of like six foot people. So there were always had friends who are shorter than I was it wasn't like, oh, you're the short guy who holds the class picture.

So far, I have been very much a game of thrones apologist of this season in that people. I don't know what people expected from this final season, six episodes of war and the lights to be on that war. I don't know. It's like when nothing is happening is a it's it's too slow. It's rates rushed. And so it's not perfect. But the trying to end the show, it's tough. Yeah. I thought last week's episode. The fourth episode had a lot of really good scenes. Wasn't a perfect episode. No, the the last twenty minutes, we're really fascinating. I mean, I enjoyed it without doing the spoils like that's that scene where the two factions confront each other. Yes is that's like a really dramatic like beautifully shots. Travis says woe the chapter titles further nap book pamphlet podcasting without podcasting be called question me. No, I do either. You're gonna have to explain for the next Melissa says, rob sister Nino. I think she was just making a joke. Yeah.

I was saying rob sister Nino was like was a was a like a joke that I was doing it was a bit of. I was talking about what? My sister, Nino talks about things funny. But then my three year old made the same joke. The other day he was like Rob's sister. Nino. And like. Funniest big Wendy. It's funny. Then we're up to the all other ideas section some of these by the way are duplicate. So we can't we won't actually have to do all sixty eight. Do you know who won the college basketball national championship last month rub university? No. That'd be the university of Virginia. Do you know, their nickname the Virginia? H sorts of the c- knows an NBA team with that name the Cavaliers, do, you know, I'll give you a quick quiz on some on some college sports teams. Do you know Kentucky's name not guy?

These like Allie express type sites the H gate alley express to have these really cheap knockoff jerseys. I don't know if you've ever if you've ever seen them, but I was just like flipping through to see what they have. And they have on H gate. They have an OJ Simpson. USC jersey. Like, do you think there's any sort of joking context? I could get away with wearing that. Like, let's say on Purim, which is our Halloween doing that would be like a funny costume or now. I don't know how many people with even get the reference if you're nobody would make me. Weird. It's not a great. I mean are you walking around with like a bloody glove and no Michetti? Yeah. No, no. Football player. Yeah. Simpson. Bill simpson. John den dollars. If an anonymous benefactor gave you a million dollars to spend. What would you spend it on? Rob is a brewster's millions where I spend it spend it can't save it. He says can I like buy real estate? I guess I mean, that's I know I think the money is to be gone. I think you cannot be a millionaire. I can I can I buy a house. I don't I John get back to us on Twitter. We'll answer you or something frivolous. I think he meant he wants frivolous. I don't know like a be waterslide for what I don't have a pool. Yeah. I get well if you'd have for a million bucks, you could probably get both. I rent. You put a studio in one up put a water slide? That'd be hilarious. I mean, I didn't that put a studio in this room here that I have all my stuff in. Oh, you mean, the student could come with, you know, you have a desk. Then you Bill that nice desk. Yeah. I mean, I built it. But it's not gonna bring with. Yeah. It's not a wing on the house or fair enough. Would you rather camp outdoors for twenty four hours or spent twenty four hours in your house with no TV or internet, loans, and podcasting included? So you can't podcast. I don't know why that's the internet. John are my kids there by myself, either way, I'll say your kids are your other camping with them or their boy, I think I'd rather be in my house at least like they're toys and stuff. I mean, what's the difference that you listen to podcasts and be on your phone, but you're camping outdoors that doesn't sound. So my bed is there. I feel like I'd be more comfortable at my house than camping outdoors. We'll see you live in LA. There could be like, Jodi and the outdoors. That's not great. Do you ever have wild animals in your backyard? From my wife claims that she hears coyotes in our backyard. I just think that she is not able to have any sort of like sound perception, like a also what does she how does she know? What a Cody sounds like unless she's so, you know, what they sound like when it's like, oh, you hear them like howling. But she claims that they are howling from our backyard, which I do not believe. All right. A few from real Todd. He says kiva do you have another school ching story? I believe in the last banter episode, I told a bunch of cheating stores. I mean, do you have any cheating stories because I really told all of mine in the last I've told the story about the teacher who accidentally stapled the final to the answer key to the finals in college. Right. I think I've told that story on the Seinfeld familiar. Sounds familiar. Yeah. He also says we should watch random music video again. I don't think we need to do that right now. Okay. So you're some good ones coming up. What do you think about Starbucks game of thrones? Do you think it was planned or an accident? It definitely wasn't planned. I talked about this on the game of thrones feedback show with a Josh Wigley. I think it was the second most beloved thing that game of thrones has done this season. And they are going way overboard with backtracking and trying to like nobody's that mad like. Airbox cop right general coffee Cup. Starbucks cups in more scenes. Yeah. I agree. It was such a good is an interesting example of accidental viral marketing possibly. Yeah. It was. Here's a good question. Adamant cell. Can you guys name who was actually on mount Rushmore? Would you wanna name? Yeah. George washington. Abraham LINCOLN, honest aid teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson. You nailed it. I by the way, I'm not going to check and see if it's actually on there. We'll get a million the Andrew Jackson. Andrew Johnson Roosevelt is the one that really does seem like an outlier in terms of feel like that. He seems like like if you were making a list, I feel like that the teddy Roosevelt is the one, you know, if you're going to name top four presidents. I feel like that you probably most people have Washington Lincoln Jefferson. And then I think that the four is sort of like the one that's the real ally. By the way, a good bit for next. If you could remember this for six months from now for next thing skiving, if you have like a big Fox News watcher or a big. An MSNBC very liberal like older, relative who's gullible. So for the Fox News watcher say like, I was just on Twitter. And I saw that they're adding a fifth person to mount Rushmore so Bama and for for your liberal. You know, crazy uncle than just do the same thing with Trump. And then just like watch sparks fly at the thanksgiving table and walk away and watch the football. Yeah. Shut up Tim. What are you doing a hidden camera? All sudden and sending those Jimmy a good Jimmy Kimmel bit like yell your tell your crazy aunt that that that Obama's going to be on mount Rushmore. What do you want your kids to be when they grow up Tim asks? Happy. Yeah. That's a good answer. I mean, my my daughter's old enough that she's starting to get inclinations about a job though. I don't think you knew at thirteen you'd be a podcast or so. No, I don't know. I barely knew at thirty three right? My daughter. My daughter says she wants to be teacher the thirteen year old, but obviously things can change. I'd be happy. If she was a teacher that would be fine. Show. Tim, also, we think will die Tim. Dr Tim, probably if we hear too many your songs, he also, what's what's the scariest animal hold that thought for the for the census quiz, spiders? Now. Don't answer this. There's there's a there's spiders are not mentioned. But there are there is a scary animal question in the census, and I'm a little sad that did not ask for any input from me for the census. No, I here's the thing. I. And you and Taylor Cotter just went home. And I I'm just like a bystander. I think you if you can think of questions, you could send it to me, and I'll happy to them. I thought it would be fun. If you did not know the questions until we were live on. All right. I thought that would be a good bit. And also like I try not to give too much work for this podcast. Because you're a busy guy. I'm trust me. I'm thrilled with any prep. You do usually when you do prep. It goes very well. Like, you feel like that? My contributions are like when we did the talk show like I feel like that the the roast or the monologue jokes could have been better. If I if I was brought in earlier. Yes, was the one mistake we made that I should have. I thought it'd be funny jokes them those babies us. Yeah. But I also again, I listen, I want you to participate in everything, but I'm also wear that this is just one of your many podcasts. So I'm hesitant to ask you for too much help. And then you think yourself Aren appears too much of a time son doing anymore. You know what? I mean. It's it. Trust me. You're always welcome to involved in. Okay. Your name is on the show. But I don't know why don't you think of one or two while we're talking here. More census questions. I'm happy to knock off a couple. We're almost at thirty. I am very excited. But since I think it was a good idea for you, not to know what the questions were going. I think that would be funny. Okay. Maybe it gives me a slight advantage because I have thought of and in some cases came up with the question. So I don't know. Okay. Okay. Coron? Cecilia says break news, the global zombie apocalypse is beginning what do Robin Akiva do. Now, where do they go it supplies? They get. I'm just gonna zombies me. I've no patience for this apocalypse. Yeah. What are we going to do hide out? Yeah. I'll be I'll be like the first guys. Anyway, jim. But just take take me. I I'm gonna like, you know, whole up with my wife, and my kids somewhere is there is there internet in the Walking Dead. There's not right. There's no TV anymore. It's it's literally a stope. It's why would I like maybe I'll try to become an astronaut and go to the moon or something? It sounds awful. Good luck getting to the moon. Walt says the evolution of sitcoms from goofy premises to family dynamic to cartoon style sitcoms mucky mentoring today's nerd culture and Stella based ones what's the best era of sitcoms. And what is the evolution mean? I don't know. Yeah. I mean, it's an interesting question. It's a well thought much more than shop. Tim's like, you know, how are you going to die? Yes. So he saying today or nerdy and nostalgic. It's funny because sometimes I'll turn on the TV and I'll never I will not. And I feel like I fell pop culture pretty well, pretty deeply and soda you. You will not have heard of a lot of these sitcoms on the networks could could you name five current sitcoms. If I take a big bang theory and young Sheldon off the board. How could I name three that haven't been on the air for five years? So take out all the big bang theory modern family, right? I really don't think there's I know there's a jennif- Issur one. I've seen a couple of episodes of love, Jennifer Scher. It's not a great show. I don't remember the name. There's a new lake bell one. I saw one episode of bell. No, it's it's the premises her. And her husband in the first episode quit, the New York life and moved to a farm in Nebraska and become farmers. Wasn't so impressed with the first two episodes. And I watch too I was just bored. But I. I don't think I could name a single one young Sheldon and big bang theory. Young Sheldon council my list because it hasn't been five years that I that's it. I really don't you know, Brooklyn nine nine is still around, but that's been around for more than five years at this point. I don't know like there really are not a lot. But there so many of them. I think is one that sort of like is that is that definitely still on. I guess it is on the summer my wife, watches it. Yeah. Okay. My wife is a big sitcom personal. So she goes exercises while while watching sitcoms, and she's like, a real sitcom laugher when you watch show watching episode of the goldbergs and be like hysterical. Wow. The middle. She was a big cracker upper during the middle. She loved the middle. The middle is funny key less. So. Reality curtis. What do you think about Snapchat is snap chat, dead is Instagram as Instagram, defeated Snapchat? Yeah. They basically stole their killer app. And I think that they're dead. But I don't know who's on it. I don't know if it's like basically instead of getting involved with Snapchat like everybody that was over like seventeen years old was on Instagram. So maybe it's just still like teenagers on Snapchat. Kyle wants no where you a big Simpsons guy in the first ten seasons of the Simpsons. I was big Simpsons guy. Like, maybe in the first five seasons of the Simpsons. So from the start of the Simpsons in the early nineties, I was a Simpsons guy. But I definitely did not keep up with what what are you? Have. You have watched the Simpsons episode in the last like five ten years. No, I don't think one. It was unbelievably bad so bad and their voices have changed because they're like old at this point. They just don't they can't do the lease on the bar forces anymore. It's it's depressing. I don't know how it's the lawn. When you're on a credit elevator. Some people get off. Do you move to be maximally distant from their main writers or maintain your position? Even if uncomfortably close to others. I as living in the city living in L in a building with an elevator for years. There is sort of like, you don't even realize you're doing it you go to the corners everyone spreads in an apartment elevator. Yeah. I think so I mean what are the hover? What about wanna be right up in the personal space of these like random strangers? Yeah. Is rob is Kazaks Kazakhstan in Europe. No. It's not in Europe. What do you think about levian bells music? He tweeted something, and then didn't then another NFL player came out and like really just drags him. Right. Yes. I remember. Oh, yeah. I I don't know. I I don't have any strong feelings about bell other than that. He should concentrate on football. What's on your mount Rushmore of cheese? Rob. So is that where I pick one where the teddy Roosevelt. Yes. There's a fifth one. There's there's an Obama coming on. Okay. Well, I don't really like to talk about food. I'm not a big cheese guy since chase food. Yeah. It's food. But I'm not a big cheese guy. I would have mozzarella. Then I I guess let me then give the so I'm just going to be like talking about cheese talion that you call it moot. Zarella? You know, what's it L? But I try to does the pretty serious. Yes. Which is talking about the sopranos type food. She does. She does do the tickets. So I would say that the mount Rushmore of cheese. I'd say is cheddar Swiss. No, I don't know. Mozzarella cracks the ultimate mount Rushmore, cheddar, Swiss what am I forgetting here? Gouda. Minced noodle is on the mount Rushmore of chino. I'm not a cheese guy American. I don't. She's person is going to like, we just, you know. Turn their news people to be I don't I just don't know much about cheese. I did I had a friend who's dating a food scientist and be and she said as people keep kosher and she had used to she used to keep coaching. And then she she did not. And then she did. So she was familiar with both types of food. And she said the biggest difference in terms of quality between knockoffs food and kosher food in the wind the wind category for nocco food was cheese. Kosher meat is good. But kosher cheese. She did nothing was the same quality. So that maybe we're not what's blue cheese. Like, I don't even that's blue cheeses on Rushmore cheese. I don't know. I don't like it. Yeah. Sorry for me. Talk about food. Yeah. Okay. Tantric sex, no tarantula sex. Why they're so much spider stuff. What just happened on the podcast? There's a lot of weird. I skipped like four five really dirty ones. Also, okay. Was was was tantric sex and tarantula were different things or that was six though, they're different. I soon the same person. So bitter them shut up Timur or somebody thinks they're like, but somebody the thirty six tantric six thirty seven is like, what's our opinion on tantric sex? I guess or torrential you could answer one or the other I prefer sex. I I don't even know really what that entails. I know seal is into it. See staying also staying staying in Heidi Clem was married. He Mary diety clue but sting also sealants thing we're into tantric sex. Okay. There was always a story that one that someone would. Was like very into like doing like fifteen hours and nobody under nobody's interested in it. That's insane. That doesn't make any sense fifteen. Nobody wants to anything for fifteen hours. That's ridiculous. What do you think about the metric system? Rub. I like it pro metric. Okay. Someone says. And I can I can ask this question. Because you don't think it's cool. Right. I have no opinion on the metric system. These are all from edge. Joe every single one of these from Joe tantric sex tarantula six ones tarantulas sex. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know tantric sex tarantula sex that was the most two separate or ranch la- sex. Yeah. Digest, and we'll get and gauged because she's pregnant I would have skipped that one except Jess included. I don't believe. So no, I don't think. So what is the worst superb while he really wants you to talk about food? What's the worst soup? Soup is the worst of soup supposed to be hot. Right. What is the best type of French fry? Well, I like the steak fry and I'd like to talk about food. I like the more potato more surface area. The better for me. I agree the spicy for. I had. It's day. What are you ever spicy for guy? I really love the spicy fry. Talk about John John. Okay. John John is a guy with a big big heart. John, john. Yeah. And what a what a character. He's gone on to be there. There's not many people that are just the listeners of the podcast. It's just on a first name basis alone that a large cross section of the audience knows knows who they are. And so John John is one of a kind. Yeah. I agree. I think one of the fun things about doing these podcasts. Is you get to meet so many characters that you would not have met otherwise related they life. Yeah. There's so many so many people. Where would you never met John John street and lets you were in Tampa? Okay. What is the worst fat or trend going right now digital wants to know? How do we know what any fads or trends going on? I am famously cool. But I don't know what the worst the worst fatter trend is because I would never go. What current trends can you please Google current trends or fads, and maybe we'll try and pick something. That's okay. Let's see current trends. Twenty nineteen kick. Can I tell you a absolute just bomb? My daughter dropped on my wife this week. I can't I'm gonna guess. Okay. So so. We were I don't know why my mother-in-law mentioned someone talked about like little kids in my in my in someone's nursery school like eating their bookers. So my mother-in-law said in front of all of us. She's like, I'm just so happy that you know, when they were kids, none of my four children eight bookers and my daughter within like a third of a second of her grandma saying that said wake grandma. Mommy started eating her Boogers when she was at a dull, oh, she roasted her does not have a sense of humor about being made fun of. It was such a good line. I was so proud of her. A lot of friends and feds look there there in regards to fashion, and there's a lot of things from December twenty eight teen of like here's what's coming in twenty nineteen but it's like all from like end of year type stuff and like true trends coming in two thousand nineteen but not necessarily the guys who pick the trends once who'd we speak to about that is that the same as the trending topics on Twitter. I don't think so I don't think so at all because I look at what the trending topic trend. That's a better question. What are the trending topics right now, we can talk about those. I think it's very personalized. So let me see personalized by city. Let's see a key that like it's my trending topics are like when there's like game on it's like Alonzo, the Graham, it's like interesting. I thought it was just by city. Let's see let me see trending too. I guess live. I did in Los Angeles. Let's see how about this. I did it by if I did it by place. Archie AJ? Do you know why Archie trending us because Riverdale podcast? Yes. The goal. King has murdered Archie. Breaking news spoiler Wednesday, wisdom, Jonas brothers. Kendrick castio. Uber. Lifts strike. Yup. Do not take an Uber is listed unless you want to be a scab watchmen read hashtag AJ AT OT. That ship league thing. Aga OT hashtag billion dollar loser. Hashtag legit. I don't know. What that is. Yeah. Okay. I don't know. Nothing speaks to me. I'll go back to the trending topics that are tailored to me. At least. I know what they all are what do you like to do for fun that we don't know about digital wants to know? Boy, what to do for fun. That you don't know about that. I can talk about. Do you have any hobbies that we don't know about nothing? Really procrastinating. Did you collect anything when your kid? I had some baseball cards. Have any of them? No, not really serious or collecting they they warned that valuable like my most valuable car. It was like shack card, and that's probably like twenty bucks like shack rookie card. Yeah. Had some figures. But nothing nothing too great. I did not have like a childhood where my parents were like, what are you collecting? Let me help you acquire those things. Bob with two Bs says he wrote he wrote us an Email about a wand off bracket that to do with me. But I did see the Email. Yes. Do you wanna do a one-off bracket? Well, why is the wand off bracket on the renege up? We'll I don't know. I don't know if it's on the wheel. I don't know if maybe he just wants me to do the bracket the help with the bracket, maybe where we come in. I could do the bracket. I don't think we would physically have time to make the bracket. Okay. Is that basically isn't a banter subject? Yeah. I mean, I guess I guess he's he's sort of being smart. And he's getting it read by putting in banter where we have to read every question. Yeah. Okay. But this podcast is famously not about survivor. I feel like that's survivor parody song fall under that purview. Right. Okay. So you have to right into the mail bag for the wiggle room for that when Bob with two Bs. Yes. Becca wants to do you have any interest in time travel? I am certainly interested in the subject as as a concept. I do not particularly want to time travel. No, only bad things could happen. Yeah. Nothing ever happens then like saving people's lives. If you could do something silly. What would you time travel back to time travel back to do? Now. Am I myself? Currently, I am the dolt version of rob sister, you know, travel quanson leaping into my that means, but no, okay. I don't know. What would be something? Silly to go back in time. Ready? Maybe get the jets a Super Bowl how have them drift Tom Brady. And how would I do that? When I go into the draft room, like a lunatic like, hey. Don't draft Chad Pennington. I mean, I don't know. I figure it out you convince people you're a time travel there. Probably take your drift advice. More. Somebody should do that. Somebody should do that going. Yeah. I can't imagine where I could get to where somebody would be listening to me in NFL draft room will where. Right unless Sealion dollars. What if you like show them like technology or like money from my laptop and like Bill Parcells look, I'm from the future. Here's my computer. Look at this. Bella check is he's a traitor. Already knew that by now. But. This. If you really want to get back at him draft this guy. Okay. I mean that my work. All right. Last question. Rob the land will make outgrow the coach from banter. Yeah. I mean that really set us back that far he was only there for one year. Now, speaking of university of Virginia, which is the champion. That's where the jets lost their coach the university of Virginia. That's really a low point. What was the highlight of your week? And what was the low light of your week? Rob the highlight of my week in the low light of my week. I mean, it has not been a super eventful week. The highlight might be wind shut up. Tim's money. Wow. Okay. Winning shut up. Tim's money. And do do we have an update on Kohl's financial windfall. No, she's been working the last couple of days. I've not had a chance to talk about this. Have you done your podcast with her yet? Maybe tell her on air. See the she's now pro Rene up. Okay. I'll let her a letter. I'll ask her if your call also. Don't do that. I don't think there's a chance that we get a yes. Okay.

I soon she would tell different version that story though. Yeah. She she told me to she. She had walked out of the room, and she was cooking pasta and show me watch this pot. And I said, okay, got it. And I watched it. And basically, I mean that don't let the water boiler out of this pot. And then she came back in and the bottom of the pasta had gotten overcooked. And I didn't even follow. I didn't even like prepare the parliament. I don't even know what you're making here. I was and so she got like like very annoyed with me over my failure to which I did exactly what she told me to watch the pasta. I. This. Why are you so mad over this? Who cares? The sounds like a barren steamed bears book, it was a super super annoying. It was like the how mad she got over. What I did was complete disconnect. Okay. Let's see your Nicole's version of the story next week that was there we hit all sixty eight minus like ten weird or thirty one twenty duplicates. Okay. But I hope you had a good time in. I had a good time. We got asked our take on Infinity. I will say when you're a kid in Finley comes up like every day. Right. Like when you're a kid. It's like you like you argue who knows like bigger numbers, and then the kid drops the Infinity bomb, and that's it they want. Yeah. Or like, you tell your kids like how much do you love me, and they're like Infinity, but when you're an adult Infinity almost never comes into play seven. Let's drive an INFINITI. Yeah. Would you wanna drive an INFINITI? I mean, I'm not I'm not against it. I draw. We've got a Chevy traverse right now. That's better than thin. Yeah. Eight seats seats. Okay. All right.

This is a bonus because we were supposed to skip this week. Because I don't know if that means like because I don't know how it would have worked in the space time continuum like would next week have been banter like with that have come up next leaker. I don't know. I don't know. But I've kept my Sunday completely free and clear of podcasting in honor of mother's day except for a game of thrones podcast game of thrones nighttime. You can't you can't like move that date though. First of all that's the end of the night. So you could have already gone out or done our say used to do a gift for mother's day like besides flowers. I don't have to. But I believe it's recommended. I don't think we do it. I mean, like the kids cards and flowers, maybe I'd my wife. I don't think I get a gift for fathers. Oh, you do not. I definitely do not. But we mothers. We we don't really celebrate Father's Day mother's day is huge huge date on the calendar. We don't we don't really observe Father's Day. Okay. Okay. All right. All right. We got a couple real doozies this week. Okay. Can I just say like in terms of whether you love the banter sequel or not the we've got an embarrassment of riches right now on the wheel. There's so many. There's no teddy Roosevelt here on mount rainier. There's no teddy Roosevelt's there's no fifth president. There's no fifth president. We just have an embarrassment of riches speaking of mount Rushmore, let me start there with the all backed up because we just heard all show up. Tim's ideas last week. Yes. We're a little backed up. We've got a lot of good ideas won't get all of them today. But we have three polls that I just started right now. So by the time, we get to the mail bag. It will what they are. Absolutely. I'll tell you. You can look also just dropped a triple pole thread. So number one is should Robin. I do a draft podcast or mount Rushmore 's okay? Early to Rushmore overdraft. The person who submitted the draft idea who was Josh lemur not going to be happy with us. But we'll we'll get. We'll get Josh Liam around with different idea. I also got another Email saying that hey, I submitted drafts a while ago. And you didn't you said, no. But sometimes we do that. Sometimes we say, no the first time. And then, you know, we're in a different mood, two months later, and we say, yes, okay. JT podcast mccully, Paul Culkin podcast or neither. Okay. I won't look at any of these. I'll see what can I tell you something what I got to DM's in the last few days of real saying, I will stop listening to the podcast if you don't if you kick the JT podcast of the wheel. I've been looking for is not for Raterman. I don't think. So no the Reiter man's this season three seven guy. Right. I know. I know, but no, no. I don't I got to one said that directly one said like I'll be curious. What was someone said I cannot on the podcast anymore. And now we did sort of we have had this for while. It's not our fault where we didn't veto JT. Right. We vetoed. New York and we vetoed. Veto charity. I am not sure I remember. It might have been. I'm getting old. So maybe neither. I don't know if neither is definitive option. But right now all three of those close in the very early going, and then shoot rob keep kosher for a week is the third one. Yeah. So mount Rushmore with early the other two are very close. But we'll keep those going for a few minutes while we here. All right. We have this idea. I'm sometimes we have an idea. Rob that I'm ninety nine percent. Sure is getting on the wheel. Okay. It's one of those. I think this is one of those ideas. Corey message me this. We did no different chord. I don't know this core. I don't know. I don't know his his anything else about him. And he said, we know it's a man. I don't know. It's a man could be could be a woman or other. It could be a woman. Now, he does have a wife, but that doesn't mean anything he says, Robin, Akiva name a baby name Abe name a baby my wife, and I are having our fourth child, and we need a name. I assume people who get up to names three and four a lot of times. Like myself, you are at a names, especially sometimes with one gender where it's like oh. You know because you lost couple of grandfathers grandmothers or vice versa. Oh, we got like four grim four names of grandparents, but we don't have any names of grandfathers. So we have that with my second daughter. We did not have a family name we needed to give her. And so we had to come up with something. All right. But with with with sons, it's a fight. That's like, which grandparent we named it after so corey's up to four kids. So he has no more names that needs to name it after he needs our help. Baby. Yeah. The previous names of Corey children are Cuyler Keegan and Stella. So this isn't like Bob James, and John like he is not going with basic Sally names offensive Sally listeners out there. So he's up for anything him and him and his wife. The new baby is going to be a boy more info can be provided. If necessary I'm also able to jump on the podcast if needed maybe a bracket or ideas or just run through the names collect until you settle on one more options than we will name the baby. Okay. Does corey's wife know about this? So I immediately, of course, when I got this Corey, and I said, Cory this is amazing. This is a lock if this is real I we need we need some consent from your wife year. So we said, okay, obviously, I discussed with her. She's nervous that you guys are going to name the baby something silly like seven or king cake king cake, baby. And I said, I'm going to be honest, Corey we're gonna take the seriously because we want to name the baby we're not we'll be no joke names on our list at all. Great. I will talk to her. She also said soda. We might go soda or a man Mets player. Darnold is on the table. Sam is a great name for boys or for or for girls. And they're having a boy Pete for pita, Lonzo. But again, they they're they've got some fun out their name. So I don't know of Pete Pete's going to think that his parents didn't love him like Keegan and Stella. I think this is a lot to go on the wheel. Here's here's how I suggest that the Corey we do it. The two of us, and possibly maybe a baby named expert either listener who really knows baby names, or I found a baby name expert on Twitter that really has a lot of baby names sites and has their baby podcast. Cast. Yes, no joke. Baby named podcast got deep into the baby name world this week. Rub. And we would we would come up with a list. We would we would go back and forth with names. Maybe we each pick one or we'd come up with a list of five or ten or whatever together with. So I don't think we pitch them one name. Although we could I think we pitch them a list and say, which of these ten do you like the most? And then they're not legally required to do it. You know what I mean? Like, they okay there now consider hold on. Okay. So there's a lot of parts where that are. We working with the baby name expert before the podcast, and then I guess. Chlorine. And MRs Corey, I think there's two parts the podcast. I think all three of us come in you and the baby name expert come in, by the way, shadow too. Mike bloom there could Asher. That's a good name. Maybe maybe coercion get Asher. Yeah. Put it on the list. So we all we each maybe come up with a list of ten or fifteen whatever names. And then we pitch names the expert. She gives us some feedback. Maybe she's got a few of her own. And then we compile the three of us. And then the second podcast is we call Corey and his wife, and we pitch them the names. Okay. I mean that sounds like a lot of logistics to figure out in one episode. But maybe it's a wheel than a phone call on the wheel. We wanna skip the wheel that we can skip the wheel. Let's see what it looks like. Okay. But I think that the listeners should also be able to sit still, you know, the listeners will one hundred percent be part of it. I'm I'm maybe that's fine. Yeah. I think this has to be on the nobody's ever. This is rob Robin name corey's baby, Robin. I think name of AB because maybe we should take the core report out of in case the baby grows old and like once the be. You know what I mean like once? So like, maybe we shouldn't promote his name going forward. No, I know maybe not literally. But I think maybe they should you sit in pseudonyms when they're on the podcast because I think it's way is eighteen and they Google maybe podcasts still exist, and they're like, wait. My name comes from podcast. We'll say the people I pitched us to they say, that's not bad. It's not a joke out of it. It would be. Yeah. Babe. Nobody cared. What I named my fourth kid about this. Okay. Robin, Akiva, baby. Name reveal party. Yes. Okay. There you go. Baby named now Damian revealed mardi let me ask Corey. And I don't know if we're gonna get an answer before the end of the show, I meant to ask him. I think him when is the baby due because if it's doing like six weeks, this might need multiple spots on the wheel this is like a real time bomb. Okay. If if she's three months pregnant, and there's no rush right now. That's right. That's right. Okay. A backup couple that is willing to steal the name. If a Corey and his way seven don't want it. Yeah. Well, some sort of rumor that Jesse pregnant pumping. It's true. Okay. All right. But I mean, they just take the name in just like Bank it. Oh, yeah. No. I need that we needed every listener to sign a nondisclosure agreement or your next kid. My wife doesn't even want me to do the pike cast. He will not she will not go for this. Trust me. I thought about it. Okay. All right. Well that just win when it comes up just consider it. I would do it. I have no say I have no say so kid number five. You will use a listener suggests you'll consider it. I mean, I can't I do middle name. Like, we each my wife has unfortunately, lost a grandfather. And grandmother since we are. Like, I don't I don't think that's number is what you're saying that we are in one boy and one girl, I think kid number seven is available or two I guess two girls or two boys. Six could even become available. All right. You have six. I I was apprised that you didn't balk at five. I mean, I'm having five now. But anything's I don't want to I want to be the guy who says. No, I don't want to say just in case possible. But it's not happening right now. Literally right after this definitely not gonna happen. At least today. Okay. So that one I knew was just such a lock I'm already excited. I wish we could fast forward to some of these episodes. I'm super psyched about okay? Catherine says I'm Ruus into the hands episode and Robin Akiva, keep bring up farmer, bro. Martin Shkreli as podcast one proposes shrill cast for the wheel since two thousand fifteen shows stories only gotten wilder most recently was caught running his farm company from prison on contraband. Cell phone millennial scammers are you right now. And I don't think anyone has covered this ridiculous story. I don't think we're really going to scrawl cast. I do an interview with him, right? Are we are we interested enough to talk about what he's up to of like how he ended up getting the Wu Tang album, and every up to I just think I think it would be fun. But I think you're glorifying too much. He's not a great guy pass how about this where put on. So I put on this going to be tough to get a second on the wheel today. Sammy g says, Robin, Akiva, try not to laugh. Japanese game shows are tenure ten years ahead of the curve on this idea, basically to funny. Why thank you Sam. I'd love to hear you guys attempt to suddenly make each other laugh throughout the course of a show. But the point is to not laugh this episode with lent itself. Plenty of banter, some of the Japanese shows have three strikes and you're out policy. You do the show and video. All right. I'm already out on video smirks get a yellow card big last, Mike and automatic require. So the point is to try and make each other laugh three times, I feel like that is a funny idea. It's much more video idea than than an audio the though. Yeah, it's a big concept. I like the idea maybe. This could be on the wheel for the live show wheel. Yes, I do think you could not a fully separate set of ideas for the life show will. But a lot of things that we've rejected in the past as to visual could that would be a good live show idea. Maybe very if you remember from the life show, and you've done many live shows like it's much easier to make an audience laugh in person because people started laughing everyone less, right? But this has the word trying to make me laugh, and I'm trying to make you laugh. Yes. I like even Chester the world's biggest hater who who literally. If if non- Seinfeld people don't know this brought his laptop into what was a dark room where we're doing the live Seinfeld show to do see traits and proceeded to spend the entire timing three fantasy and basically ignored us. When we when we ask them a question room. Yeah. Totally bombed unbelievable stork bomb from Alexander, Chester. But even he said, it was really funny and everyone kept laughing. It's easier to make people laugh and person is the idea to me who is. Who has record of getting stuff on the wheel says this week in wraps three which could also be r- Napster? We'll see Jordan Kayla salute back at this week in our history or our enemy history. We go through podcast poke lips discuss you and rub face off and trivia game. Only the podcast took place that week on our chippy in the last ten years frequently asked questions is this too self referential, he asks well, Where'd you get this wacky idea that people don't love the meta stuff people love it. It's fun excetera. Will we me, and you are a meat to do a lot of prep work for this? He says, no almost none of the puck is by what's podcasts. God bless you. But otherwise, no need question. We'll Calif need to explain the rules of the quiz answer. Oh god. You're right. Maybe this idea should be cancelled. Okay. So I am actually okay on this idea. But that I think it needs to wait until the one year anniversary of Rene up way this week and necessary. But the problem with the difference between. Our and our ADP is you six podcasts week, and we do one. Yeah. We get into the Seinfeld podcast also. So so would be it would be anything that happened on this, Robin, Akiva history. Okay. All right. So that's a good idea. But we need a year of our under our belt. Yes. And so I think it might be okay. On on this week in twenty fifteen Robin. Akiva, talked about blah, blah, blah. Okay. Here's all right. So that's the wheel waiting room will from Africa. Mettler gory writes in. Yes, he says what about Robin Akiva needed GTL alternatively, titled rub and go to the jersey shore. It's a deep dive into all things jersey shore. Harry Potter for jersey shore. I would be putting jersey shore season three episode seven into the visual. Okay. But I feel like we have MTV shows are dating shows are track. So might be a little possessive of the MTV corner. I don't know. But I I would put. Just got to shore season three episode seven into the let's put it that. We haven't added anything to the fishbowl in months you talking about the jersey shore crew is very interesting to me. Can I tell you a very brief jersey shore story that I thought of when we got this Email, I would love it. So I had I did watch the first couple of the jersey shore like many young Americans, and I had a co worker from your neck of the woods from American bell more. Who I said, hey, you have to watch the show you're going to love it. It was it was a teacher named Jenna. And I said, you're gonna love the show and. She she's like it sounds awful. I kept saying like trust me love it love it. And then she didn't see it. And then I never saw her again because we I I switched different school. And I didn't think anything about it. And then one that acts like when through my old not accidentally went through my old Facebook messages, and they had a message from her saying like oh my cod. Akiva, I love it. It's my favorite show. I like watched the word binged exists yet. But like I watched both seasons, and it's amazing. And like, let's talk about it. And I never saw her message to six years later. Yeah. Poked her again, we could had been friends about the jersey shore. You could've did you keep up with all the seasons? No, I think at a certain point, I stopped. I'm a big smoky guy though. Yeah. So find did you add that to put it in the? Put it in the allegory will be very happy about that. Okay. All right. I think we're gonna let me just do. One more interrupts at seven because this is for Matthew Louis Royer who is verified if you are verified, and you write in automatic theoretic believe that's a rule. Can we add west wing to season three seven list of it's not ready there? Now, are you a west wing guy? I've seen only like three episodes and one of them was the debate. Which was like a just a terrible episode of TV if you have not seen previous episodes like they did a presidential debate. That was all soda. I don't know if you saw that or know about. Yeah. I just feel like it's not Jimmy verse Ellen Alda who's the other guy. I don't know. I think so that was late in the game. Also, the final season also in general if you do pitch through seven going foretells episode was because sometimes it's a deal breaker. Sometimes it helps your case. Yeah. I think Rama is tough for a season. Three episode say agree. I think we really should stick towards comm is. Now going to be not not a comedy or drama. But it is kind of a comedy might be an hour. If I'm I don't is it an hour. I think that there. Maybe I'm not sure I'm not sure either. Okay. All right kiva anything else. I think we're good. We got some more stuff for next week. I don't think we're really need to get into anything. Let's check the polls as you. As we start to think about what's going to go on the wheel and do next updates from ombudsperson issue. Yes. We did get an update from here's an important update. There's an impostor on Twitter. What? Yes, I sent this Email this week and said who is this person? Did I get replaced? Yeah. As your buds person because at ombudsmen nap is on Twitter calling itself the official count for the office of the nap on Busby. Ops allowed, and my reaction was I thought that was you. Yes. So I thought that was hard. The only thing that was weird is that we call it the butts person and she uses that name and this was using buds men. What I didn't think anything of it. I thought like, hey is this show. But I figured like who would impersonate the pretend to be official, and I think you're following the fake one even in her screen shot. And so I didn't know I was confused. I was not a big Twitter user also. So I figured maybe she just made a separate account. She doesn't want to be bothered, right? But no, we have a fake with the king cake. Baby is the background a fake on buds person. So I would like that person who's account could still exist to put in their bio not the official cannot official. Yes. Unofficial. Issia is the only official person and believe it's the lifetime employment like supreme court. She could not be fired. She cannot be fired. Okay. She would have to decide that because she's Dan boats person. She it's up to let us know next week if you can be fired. So if she makes a bunch of rules that we don't agree with you be. I don't know. Maybe we could like impeach. I don't know how she also did her idea was the TV theme song bracket. So she's writing pretty high right now. That's one of those. Yeah. Yeah. I did add edit the creator of every episode that I that I could come up with to the rob as website dot com slash we'll list. Great. Our documents week. I love them were us. I was surprised by how many of them came up. Okay. All right. Let's go through what's on the wheel before we get wheelspin for episode number thirty five believe it or not. Okay. Here we go. We have season three episode seven up to three spots on the wheel. Coin flip. Okay. Until a winner of the bet. Resolve a coin flip the Oregon trail we have the rise and fall of JT kiva. Can we get a status update on the rise? And fall of JT. Okay. Should I mean when what's the deadline said this second already has one hundred twenty seven votes on it? What's the vote right now JT has staved off elimination? He's alive. First place by three percent JT beats MacAulay Culkin. Neither only twenty seven percent JT has lived to see another day on the on the wheel that I'm sure will not get picked for how funny would it be. If we vetoed it if it gets picked right now. But that person can keep listening to the podcast the person who threatened to quit in general don't threaten to quit as your strategy to keep it get show on the wheel. I don't think that's a great strategy. But right it worked this time. We've got dozens of other listeners. Okay. Yes. I don't need you. Mtv shows are trash two spots. Okay. Is Allie lash? You're back in the mix or is available. I believe she's available. This week infomercials our trash that is not eligible for being picked this week. We'll rating room take that get. Oh, I'm sorry. I was thinking of Caitlyn Herman. Yes. On a couple of already took Caitlyn off the wheel the Royal rumble. Only one spot. We got got an Email from Brent just like two days ago, the creator of the Royal rumble. He said it is the video is ready. We are good to go. All right. Then we have the crappy movie diaper has two spots. Millennials killed it. The census the sequel mechanism has two spots to beloved final four the mount Rushmore and the baby name reveal party. Two things off the wheel for this week. What's that? I think to beloved even though tonight the I like is too similar to what we just did. Okay. I think so you know, what I mean? It's basically like banter with with with. I think I think we're fine. We're fine. We need to be able to live on the margins. This is sure more technical reason. I think the Oregon trail I have a guest in mind, and I don't think that gets available next week. And I think it's a good guest. So can we give the orange the argon trail the week off? All right. That's fine. But that if this is the week, it comes up people are going to be incensed. Yes. Yeah. Well, it can get to spots if it comes up going forward. Okay. All right. If something comes up on a week that can't go. It gets a bonus spot. If it's like that first week where what's been Atta banana consideration about that. Is that a good rule? Okay. Fine. Yeah. That is actually okay. Let's let's run that up the ladder. But that that I like that. Okay. Okay. So there are stakes. No matter what. Yes. But we don't talk about food. Now, should rob. Keep kosher for a week is a runaway. Yes. So I think that's getting to the wheel next week. I don't know what the podcast is. We're going to we're going to send you to eat food. And you're going to talk about it. We may even send me too. Eat food. I don't want to go anywhere. You have to you have to go to one we discussed this all ready where do I have to go. You have to go to one store and buy kosher food. Okay, fine. That's fine. Yeah. You have to buy like where I'm saying. We'll give you a list, though, is what I'm saying. Well, I'll even get the name of the store. It will be a store near house. You won't have to go too far. Max Santa Monica kosher for a weekend. Yeah. Kosher for weekend as long as you. Yeah. You could do that. I mean, how many days of eating kosher? Do we need for podcast? Well, if you say your chickens, kosher you mostly keep kosher anyway. Yeah. Just don't add any like, pork or anything to it. Don't always tres fine won't for a weekend. But the only thing is we still call it keeps coach for a week. I don't know if I find kosher kosher correspondent that I'm going to work with what? Yeah. I'll yes. Someone volunteer to be your kosher code. You have. Do you have a kosher member here in the valley? Yes, we have kosher coach for you. That's. And they Caitlyn Herman Caitlyn Herman you want her to think she keeps kosher. And I don't know if she's available. I'll texter. Okay. All right. You ready for the spin? And by the way, also being added next week is not drafts. But mount Rushmore 's I'm very sorry to the draft people. But I think dress will happen eventually, but met Rushmore has has usurped. It's thrown all right here. We go episode thirty five coming up next week. Here we go. All right. Chester's cried during season eight of game of thrones yet. That's a good question. I don't really know his takes about like, I who has anybody died. Do you think he cried? I don't want to say who died. But when there was a death this past week, you think he no, I don't think. So I don't think death in episode five where he cries, Akiva. Going to believe this is it. To beloved. Oh, okay. There we go. This is the kind of stuff that makes me believe in some sort of a divine power. Yeah. Well, look that you are well more out there in terms of your faith and your spirituality. But sometimes I need to sign from above when stuff like this happens. More in the camp of believing in a higher power or that we're in some sort of a simulation that to beloved has come up here on the wheel. Okay. Now, we got extra. So basically what to beloved is? If people are not familiar is. I think we need to change the name possibly also I was thinking of all your faves or cancelled or or Robin kiva destroyer faves something something along with the problem with your come up with pitches workshop that name this week, if you're a smart listener out there, but I already have a great list from one listener of ten to fifteen things with like one hundred percent approval rating, the we're gonna have to destroy, but please send them to Stirling at what is at the just Erling believe that's three s in. Zero right. And and she will compile things, and you're just sending us things that nobody could possibly to need a podcast at rob website. I come okay. You can't send them there. Because I don't think it needs to totally be a surprise. But I guess the improv works or didn't work today. I have no. And then if it's with you I'd like to skip the reviews this week running running a little late in terms of everything to go on here on a win. There's only two days since we last recorded. There's only one review I think all right. So follow at kief twenty-six. I'm at runs this anything else. Akiva. No, this is fun next week. I'm already looking forward to even though I thought it was similar. I think that that will be a fun show. And also, the dine the Seinfeld people said that the first banter episode was the most Seinfeld like even more so than we just watched show and talk about it. So that is the favourite episode of a lot of the Seinfeld heads. So maybe they'll like this one too. Okay. Well, I can only hope so. All right. Thank you so much for listening to have a good one. Bye.

I still haven't got the hang of that one yet. We have a full House here. You know we're we. None of us have anything better to do right now. So we've got seven people on the podcasts including me Haley Strong. I am here more importantly we're joined for the first time since the draft. I am Mike Bloom Michael. Am thank you for gracing us with your presence. What are you a top ten finisher sequester? Many barely not even I got triple AAA AAA spoil. I'm sorry spoiler present present company can can understand what it's like to be twists screwed in an especially in an online reality show. But I'm happy to be here really the human version of peanut butter and Jelly Fried Rice. Just a strange strange idea. But you WANNA taste to me no matter what. Oh my gosh. My arrogant knows very Kanye from the show. I've put down roots We also have Antonio Massaro. What'S UP ANTONIO. Why did you do me next? After I don't know said it was the top chef roundtable. We are not sponsored by Monsanto. They're evil horrible people. I WanNa make that clear from the jump round up sucks like bladder cancer stuff like that. I'm not I'm not going to get sued Tony out anyway thanks. I'm glad to be here following Mike. Mike made a joke right before we started that. I still can't get out of my head. Followed up might thing of like. Wow that's a weird image of Mike Fried Rice but let me use my platform to just talk about Monsanto. I Haley you said roundup so I got triggered triggered bound round down around down table about round. Howard is her. This is socially avenue around. How are you doing Kurt? What's up Kurt? Welcome Curt Hi. Yeah I got nothing now. I'm just going to sit back and wait for the show. Start at this point. It's really here on the left coast and son hasn't come out yet. Sorry for those of you who have snow and of course we're joined by my favorite person in the roundup. I'm sorry Antonio Emily Fox and I'm you know just here for the Witty Banter. Her usual and I brought my sourdot with me that I'm going to be lowly mixing as we go along Just because wonder if that is sound I was gonNA say Hudson. Surely euphemistic early podcast. I'm nervous is like I'm on both worried about how that's gonNa Sound in terms of. Why but what do people think that means but also what will it? What will it sound like? We're meeting sour on harming up. And it's just a quick. I'm sure it's firming up. Yeah we'll meet ourselves once again. No you hold it up to the microphone we need. As Amara Norwich AP to be quite honest on our last but certainly not least. We are so excited to be joined by special guest today. Jim Jim Smith. What's up? Jim I thank you. All the ovation is wonderful. To be back on the podcast with you guys I I miss you very much. I wanted to say that opening a restaurant has been hectic for me and especially now in these times but I haven't been able to do some of the things that I love like five tweet survivor or top chef lately mostly used. Because I've been in the kitchen cooking but just I haven't forgotten about you all out there. I will say that the bachelor has gotten a short term ex off of my view. Gone on to that. But I'm here and doing well running a restaurant by myself and my wife. We're doing only curbside pickup. And you know we have masks and gloves and all those kind of things lots of bottles of Lysol everywhere trying to make sure it doesn't get sprayed in the food and sending out the door. Are you holding up Jim? You know I'm okay. It's it's really it's really difficult it's like. I say you know since the restaurant that we that we own is much salaries. I'm doing a lot of the work anyway. So we're probably in better shape than a lot of other restaurants but that being said you know even though we're serving our community it's the most sustainable format as of now. You know I mean we. We live in a New York. Rents astronomical so being Alabama has its benefits that in that regard. But you know like every restaurant you know. We're struggling mightily and seriously having a restaurant. I know you can't really in the restaurant now. We we have a big restaurant and it's it's almost like running a food truck. There are two people in the kitchen. But instead there's this massive three thousand square foot building that you know. I have a big power. Bill is prime. Aren't doing well. I'm staying optimistic. I am hopeful that Alabama finally issued the. You know the stay at home order which is which the big move and important move. I know that the governor has been getting lots of beef on late night. Tv and all over the Internet and so but at the same time even though being at work doesn't feel like the safest place to be. I also feel like I don't really have an option you know. What am I gonNa say this at the beginning and at the end to and I know that all you top chef fans out there have been paying attention to Tom. Padma talking about the James Beard Foundation. James Beard Foundation does so much and I have at least weekly if not Biweekly Conference Calls James Beard Foundation. Trying to figure out how to get money how to apply for these loans. How to apply for grants and you can donate money directly to the James Beard Foundation. Which in turn goes directly to restaurants. I know that we applied for the James Beard. Grant Maybe fifteen minutes after it was posted on that was last week and they had such an overwhelming response for a fifteen thousand dollars worth of grant. Money is what they're offering to anybody who applies is just a first come first serve basis. But they were out there. It systems were maxed and they were out within the first hour and so even though we applied for the grant money. I don't know we'll get it or not. You know any bit helps but you know any little bit that you can donate to the James Beard. Foundation GOES TO HELP INDEPENDENT RESTAURANTS. Like like a guy like me who's cooking all the food and wash the dishes and take orders and run all the food out the door to people. It's a huge help. I didn't mean to start off until just Syria. I mean it's it's really wonderful to get your perspective as a restaurant owner because we've been talking about it for weeks now and I work in restaurants in a different capacity. Emily has hospitality experience. She's kind of felt the force of all of this. But it's it's great to hear you speak so eloquently about tangible things that people can be doing to support this really really important sector of the economy that is just a standstill right now. It may not recover and we have to do anything we can to make sure does so you mentioning that is fantastic and we really appreciate it. I will say we had we had A. We had a zoom meeting with all the top Charleston. People much more happy hour. I WANNA be the only people who have opened. Restaurants currently is is Brooke who was doing curbside delivery. Sylvia who is toughing it out in Brooklyn and myself and I think that everybody else from the season is not operating business currently and I guarantee that every single chef who's on this season of top chef all stars is going through the same things I would say that just to kind of reinforce the James Beard Donations. I've worked with some of those people. Pretty closely at covered. Someone's maternity leave on the media team this past fall so I know a lot of the people that are behind sort of computers trying to make this work for everybody and they're an excellent organization. I couldn't be more thrilled. That they of course with all of their years of experience and sort of understanding of the food world to the extent that they are being. They're on the frontlines trying to help everybody who is really going through a rough time so yeah. I think Hashtag good food for good. Let's see what we can get going with all of this. I think we'll we'll definitely post a link so that we can make sure people know where to donate for sure and Jim before we before we start diving into the episode proper. Can you just give us an update on your restaurant where you are where people can find you anything if anyone wants to help you out directly whatever they can do. Yeah absolutely. It's called the hummingbird way. We're located in Mobile Alabama. We opened in on January seventh. So there's not like there's massive amounts of reserves in my coffers. We are a brand new restaurant. We've just opened we were we. Were killing it. We were doing really well until it. Everything's shutdown and also because we're such a new restaurant I really am not set up. You know I have splash page for my website which has been up for a month and it's already out of date. It's you know if you WANNA call the restaurant directly and buy a gift certificate. I'd love to sell y'all one but really other than that. You know. That's where I am. You're you're eighteen to social media. My social media is probably taken a back seat to the restaurant social media which is just at the hummingbird way. It's very easy to find. You can find cool pictures of the restaurant and the food that we're dealing and right now. We're just serving literally tonight. I'll be serving one dish. Want one carry out option that has four courses and we tried a few different things over the past couple of weeks. But it's a lot to keep up with. You can't really. I would love to be able to to buy more food. But there's really a whole Rabai because I'm GonNa have seven or eight leftover pieces and you can't buy live crawfish which are in season now because I don't want to have much live crawfish in the restaurant so really. It's about being smart with what we purchase and buying things. We can amazing frozen frozen shrimp from Alabama. They freeze them on the boat really. It's any show in America. It's going to be frozen on almost unless you know somebody to get it from the docks and so we serve super high quality stuff but it's only it's things that have to be considerable man things that I can save. And so that's really. That's that's where we are. I'm a meat fiesta. I'm on your instagram menu. For Tata the other couple nights ago you had choices to meets you. Get Your Shrimp Your group or your quayle. Your leg of lamb pork chop with with Szechuan. Aol E sounds delightful. Jim I love the food that we've been making here. We've been doing really cool but in in all serious does all of the Meat Extravaganza. That's been going on. It's been me working through the coolers to make sure that we don't lose anything and things that can be frozen and it's it's sad for Schefter say I'm ordering things that can be frozen and vegetables that I know will last a week at a time or pantry stocking stuff. There's a lot of restaurants in where I live in Brooklyn tomorrow. We're going to visit one of our favorite local spots that as has reshifted from rather than doing like a standard take out or delivery like their standard fare They are actually breaking down. What they they cook some of their signature dishes into components. So they do a lambere air selling Ground Lamb meat They are selling all a whole chicken that is like covered in all of the spices. That typically it's made with. Just toss that into the oven when you're ready and I think that the way that people have been have been sitting and being really innovative in this time has been kind of like you know. Obviously like it's this is how it has to be right. Now it's almost like creatively inspiring to a certain degree of like. Wow this is amazing. The way that people are thinking out of the box and it is definitely and all of this all of this sort of ideas. It's it's hard as somebody who has been arrested for a long time or none of them for a long time but someone who's been in restaurants for a long time. You can always sort of see the win. Restaurants are struggling. They do things. They changed their hours. They tried to take out menus and and all of those things that every restaurant is doing right now. Are Things that? I tried to avoid for the longest time you know. We were open four days a week. But now we're only doing if we're not new bizzare on Tuesdays to determine the power on and we're not going to be open on Tuesdays anymore and so now we're just Thursday through Sunday and those are the those are the days that enough money is coming in to justify. Turn on the gas and the and electricity on and the you know that's where we are. We've been contemplating trying things like ready to go. Take our food that you can cook when you're ready that's still requires a lot of stock ready to go like if I dress six chickens ready to be taken home and you know we only sell one of them that leaves me a lot of leftover stuff that he's already season which is not where you want to leave it so everything. I want to sell are really optimistic about where we are as restaurant of me as a person and where what's happening in the food scene and I really think and I want to stay positive and no one else like me or not everyone else like me but lots of places are going to do everything they can to make it through this and I'm one of those people we're not we're not locking the doors et where we haven't. I mean no one else is working with me but we haven't fired anybody you know. So we're everyone who left the job on the last day? So has their job. The second the dining room can open. We're doing we've been trying to you. Know we've been trying to figure out what kind of charity we can do. But in all honesty I feel guilty that we really can't afford to give away. I was kind of Donald like a local meals on wheels program delivered delivering to Ameristar situated in the neighborhood so we would working delivering too high. An risk groups of people in the neighborhood and I want to do that if we can afford it but and yeah we're also trying to reach out to some of the hospitals. Do some of the carry on carry on meals for hospitals and I wish I was in a position to do more but I just. I don't know where I don't know where to get it from so well Jim. Let's move on to sad subjects. Because you're you're you're Sir Charleston. Bro Jamie went home and this legislation. We you in advance. None of us had any knowledge. As to this is not a suspect ration- we had no idea that Charleston curse would end up occurring over the course of this subsequent podcasts. Paired with episode wasn't a non zero chance. Exactly we give up this time and he finished in the top in the first episode. It's not you know he's not a Stephanie. Who Sort of has had a rough couple of weeks. How dare of all my director remember? And he was the last draft standing out for those who don't recall is Kurt. Nye were down to the last two picks for us. Kurt already had Brian Ball Taj. You basically curtain to taking Brian Malarkey. So that you can have a Brian Sandwich and I ended up with Jim and so I- or Jamie rather I wish I ended up. I mean I ended up on a podcast that you finally gyms. I wish that the circumstances were a little better right now. But Gosh it's just a delight to see you. This is fantastic. Anyone who's been listening to the top chef pockets while knows big vanover and make things weird but maybe making things a little bit. He's definitely wearing pants. Just you just you talk about Jim on other podcasts. That we do all their politics. Gyms they talk about multiple gyms. I talk about Jim's all the time but yeah so I ended up with Jamie. Joseph Goes I now. Jamie goes third so I'm down to just Leeann the main game right now and they're really a good. I think if you look in next week the House as I am the house is I mean. I'll be burning down shortly. I don't think it's good for team with the first one would be my bet so in this episode. We did get a quick fire unlike last week. It was nice to have it. We have Ali Wong Randall. Park of one of my favorite movies from Las Year. All four. I I saw always be my. Maybe I thought it was a really wonderful little ROM com net flex sign the bounce back like a basketball hall song movie. You should watch it after. Listening to this podcast. It's really the beginning of the Renaissance. Twenty nine thousand nine right 'cause couple months and he had that huge role as himself. That was just. It's perfect especially. It's like a top chef fan. 'cause he's huge into this like they have this whole scene where they go to this molecular gastronomy restaurant and it's like perfectly poking fun at the Marcel the world. It's it's wonderful Leah. And I recently read Alley Book dear girls and that's a really nice little up to as I was excited to see both of them and so the challenge was make a crazy fried rice. Randall had hosted fried rice competition back in his university days in which Allie participated and did not win us. It was really fun to see. What's on the test? Came up with for this. What what would you guys most want to try out of what we saw? Oh man it's gotta be the peanut butter and Jelly or fried rice and I know I know they said it was salty but I think if I was going to try spam I would want it like this and I was thinking that same stallions and the canned meats. I would have been actually interested in Jamie's we were watching the episode in Emily. You were like oh I bet that's really good. I two. It looked really nice. This family perfectly Chris. Yeah so I think I probably would have gravitated towards that. And after hearing them. Talk About Karen snazzy graying. I think I would've liked to try that one too. I like. How on this cruiser putting this out on the show like they say brand name products you know so they have to be like despite this chef saying it. It's like you know hot cheese puffs or canned meat just to make it sound like descript there instead of the actual brain still. Even though it's sort of like the Kleenex tissues situation right like we don't we don't call something can be in real life which is called spam even if it's not spam and this is is this is the longest at in this episode of campaign decide. I think cameras week one or two. This is the longest in an episode. We've ever actually spent the top chef kitchen because you know the the first limitation challenges on the beach last time they are all around. La ended the majority of their cooking and prepping in union station. Here we spend the tire quickfire in the kitchen and we ended the elimination challenge in the kitchen so it was at that was really really finally got to actually be a little bit more established in this episode. Not that I would have wanted to try it. But the guts of putting out a fried rice dish that includes fried frog legs and red hots is man so the ingredients that they were thrown pretty pretty weird to put into the Fried Rice Equation Antonia definitely and I was also unusual about that is it wasn't your traditional quickfire. Where like if you don't grab it you can't use it. Several people use frog legs several people. Yeah the hot cheese puffs or the CHEETOS if you will the flaming hot. It's funny. You guys didn't mention the two dishes that I mean you sort of the Haley. You mentioned the nausea rang. That really jumped off the page for me. It looked delicious. And I liked that. But Kevin's Bachelor Fried Rice. If Morris is something wieners that was near and dear to my heart. The wieners were near and dear to heart. He's got Bourbon in there. You kidding me like so I just wanted an excuse to say wieners a lot even if dispelled and look at him he's the winner of the competition Sell it sounds like an old Michael Move. Yeah it really does Kevin Dow. You're listening but I'm here to tell your brother you don't need an excuse to say wieners. Just say it Jim. What would you have done in John's like this? And compared to some of the the quick buyers that you have competed in what do you think was the level of difficulty for something like this? One I don't think this is the most difficult quickfire but I think. The difficulty is choosing whether strategically to make your move for the red hots or the. Cheetos they had him. It didn't really say you'll be rewarded for using this as Innis but I think that they might have gotten that instruction while they were getting the rules but for me like I wouldn't want anything that Gregory made. I would want to eat and that looked like it had the potential to be. Maybe maybe the best one with a frog legs and the salt cod. It may have been the same salt cod. Got Me in trouble in last chance. Kitchen measure so crowded Alaska. But Yeah I think that and the other thing too is we don't really know it was a house thirty minutes. I had pre made rice somewhere. They must have had pre made rice. Right see I don't remember seeing any rice like oh my Rice's potential your commentary. You're right I'll always always always bramble. Taja throw rice in the D fire which I loved the deal story of Brian. Montage being an alien made the comment like I don't make fried rice often but I have great respect for it. It's like all my best from my. I have my best friend Fried Rice. I don't know when it comes to fried rice though. You're you're not frying. Ideally you're not frying up fresh rice today older two day old or something to that effect. Rice to get your best fried rice so I got to imagine the magical elves if you will in some way prepare that in the back and it was maybe around for a couple of days. Maybe that's what they had Angelo to rice cooker very sweet. It's very sweet. I don't under- There's a lot to marican. Where do you come down on the tumor versus tomb? Eric date how do you produce teamwork? Yeah okay good all right you can stay on the podcast. You'RE GONNA be talking about. How Awesome Alley Wong and Randall Park? Where Josh and now you've got to to talk with Randall. Park but I thought they were just so much fun. I know that we like if these celebrity guests judge cut Liam Machel's Gluten Free Vegetarian Extravaganza back in season eleven vegan. But I also want a lot of cheese here but I thought that they were. You know they have like enough cooking. Experience like make commentary and they're also just like I don't know I love the bits they were doing i. Love commending. The empty workstation. For example like they were they were worked really well together and that was really small and Allie. Lot of sorry go ahead. Elliott talks a lot about food in her book so it really did feel like this connection made sense to me and I really want to know where I can get this silk pajamas in public because those were magical work probably heard I can wear around the house. I mean in the in the movie with with Randall Park. She's a chef right. Isn't she like a celebrity Pepin? Oh yeah they call it like. She's the one who comes out here and is like a huge top chef and I'm nursing out being here clearly palpable and she loves Padma Padma like eight. In movie spoiler alert. Allie's boyfriend left her four. Padma and I think that's right. Yeah Daniel Kim is oh so many connections and she got she got to do the Leslie Jones on drag rates Pama. Let her say you know you have thirty minutes of your time begins now and you can tell how much fun she had with that. Meanwhile Randall Park so I did get to do an email interview with him for hr and the show notes and he was like yes. So I've never seen top chef. You've gotta just walked into it. But he said that his impression was always that these cooking shows are at least fifty percent. If not more like made up the time element is always just a little bit of and he was really impressed with how close the reality matches what what is broadcast on. Tv of the panic of the clock. And everything like that so we had nothing but really kind words to say not. Just top chef is program but also Padma specifically as somebody to just like kind of shoot shit with age and everything like that so yeah it was really really fun to talk to him and I thought that they were both great because they clearly have such chemistry with each other. I guess I didn't realize how far back their their dynamic goes. It goes back. You know all the way back to being in school together and I just I need to know more about the chocolate rights was when I asked him about it he wasn't particularly illuminating on. Something tells me he might not remember a lot. Things that happened in college. Says that has a judge? He was like yeah. I just kind of like I probably going to be terrible at this because I just like food. Basically anything you throw at me. I'm probably going to eat if you're in if you're in a state where you're going to be trying chocolate. Fried Rice. You're also probably not in a state where you're going to be remembering the chocolate. I whistle these days chocolate sabotage sandwich the other day and it was terrible. But I ate it you. You got your peanut butter. Fried Rice with my chocolate fried rice. I think that sounds good personally. And just building on their chemistry between the empty workstation. Obviously the I liked to seeing that spark between Alien Niimi like there was just like little things like your glasses and and was Liam where. They said that they'd order food from her restaurant and then I need to cook but I wanNa hug you but I need to cook this. I love the energy during the quickfire here. And and maybe we now have a chef convert and Randall. I don't know yeah. That was fun. It was it was a totally fire so Jim I want to ask you because I wanNA talk to you about Kevin. We need to talk about Kevin because he won the first one the first three challenges or something like that but then he ends up doing like pretty bad in the elimidate shut to the point where he gets called out by Padma. He admits he's like I wanted to try something new. But you know as someone who's competed. How important is momentum to this type stuff because we've seen the past couple of seasons that like people do well and then just hit a wall? Do you think Kevin's in it on the long haul or do you think his performance in this eliminates to challenges like a harbinger of how he might do later on now. I think he's in it for the long haul. I think on top chef de from a game perspective. It's important to come out of the gate super strong super fast and I think he's. He's already done that so I think he gets a little bit of Leeway. I do think that like oh I was just trying out. I think that's a little bit of like I don't think he was like. Oh I'm GonNa make a crappy dish because I have immunity. I think that he probably was just a cya. A LITTLE. Bit there Heavens for the long haul and I do think jus unlike survivor. I think that this is going to be sort of like the opposite survivor. Where the new way more trouble I think meaning has done a good job of stepping out early as maybe the Newbie who is in it. But the rest of the people who are in the past three or four seasons. I think are going to be in a heap of trouble. So what what's the what's the big deal maker between like the way that? That's bearing on spoiler alert you. Listen to the top chef. Podcast OUR SURVIVOR ON A. You're talking about rice on both shows. Allergy net here in the current season of survivor. The old scores not fair nearly as well as new scores. I'm what what is the difference in the game design? That would make you think that new school has a disadvantage versus the real veterans like Kevin Lakeville ties. You like who been around the block here before we even people like Lianne. Who's a culinary director on the show? I mean that is I mean. That's a lot like the same reasons why people were saying. It may be unfair for poverty to be on survivor. Sort of the same reasons why you know. These people not only have judged Leeann but they were with an so even though her elimination dish to me like what is happening there. You know it was the have more love and leeway and I'm not saying that their bias because they try their best non to be but it's it's impossible not to be biased in some degree and people who we haven't seen I was super shot at Angelo left so early. He's favors for a long time. And he's he's someone who I correspond with a little bit on social media even before I knew that he was going to be on on the season. He's he's a Super Nice Guy. A really cool guy but I think that production. I think I'M GONNA I'm GonNa say there are some sort of spiracy theory or anything out there but the people who are on top chef ten years ago have been doing this sort of thing for ten years longer than the new people. They've been a lot of other shows. They've been judge on other shows. They make lots of other TV appearances. They know how to work those systems and they know how to make fun of the judges. I mean Brian Malarkey has had so much stuff on all of plates and he is off. Casey Thompson says his restaurants are awesome and I would love to go and eat his wire from the early days couching pregnant pause on both of his dishes so surprised for me. I you know I just. I hope Brian Malarkey is and then for the wall hall. I think he may be because he's a super talented chef but he's just so out there he's great for TV people know him. He has a restaurant empire and he knows how to work. The judge is like him the way that he worked gale during the elimination gala. Padma during the elimination challenge. Crack me up. He's Oh this is so great you're GonNa love it and you know that sometimes things like that even if it's not great is the right way to approach the judges and I mean obviously a big difference between the formats of these shows is one is. You're being voted out by your peers. And your being your Betas in the hands of people who make and I think. Also you know once you're off of top chef you continue chef whereas a survivor surviving Eh. Have you heard of heart SUV reality? Yeah exactly well. I think it's like it's game planning and retrospective on your your game. But it's not necessarily involved in survivor philly looking at you Wendell. You don't have necessarily as much a chance to hone your game moving forward whereas with obviously with this you're stepping back out of your career back into it and keeping on going so I think it's more just not just help chef experience but just restaurant experience I Love Brian. Malarkey. This is it. Oh my God. He reminds me of like. This is a very specific stupid comparison but he reminds me like he could be related to Mr Music from Jon. Malania the sack lunch bunch jake. Jilin hold character with the Zeil is just so a clinically dressed shopping. All over the place like it's it's just he's absolutely wacky and I love the energize here. Top show talk. Show top chef everywhere Mr Malarkey. I think that yeah. I mean granted again like he is so up and down he gets combinations does upset but I feel like when Tom's like good job Brian. Remember to get your things. He's not taking that note whatsoever. And I love this idea of like you. Said gyms like Malarkey went Hollywood and like how he interacts now especially with Ludo. That's gotta be a weird situation. We dealt with this with Bruce a couple of seasons ago. But I can't imagine having someone you were on a show with coming on and judging your food you can't be objective with that whatsoever. It's weird though. He's getting that kind of edit and you're right that gets definitely there and he's getting a lot of the fun like little moments where they put a halo around his head in post production or are they cut to him for reactions on the critiques. That chefs are getting. So the edit is there is as far as being fun and Goofy pitcher right like his his other ED in terms of food is sort of up and down in. It's hard to know what the show wants us to think him. I feel that way just generally watching this season. They're dealing with a lot of really talented chefs. Obviously as we always are on top chef. When you haven't all returnees season all star season if you will it is certainly amplified in terms of that. And so it's interesting to me the edit that we get from different characters for example. The episode begins with Stephanie Karen. Anini talking about how that doubt plants a seed in your head and that sort of ties in Jim to what you're saying when you were asked about Kevin whether or not Kevin starting the way that he started is going to be okay. Is it hard when you when you fail early on? Or what are you doing? Can you get your own head? These are talking about that because we know that's a thing that happens on top chef. And we have a very serious bonding conversation and I'm thinking. Oh we're actually adding depth and layers to Stephanie Karen Anini and then the CNN's with meany. Fardon Roy was that someone in production that just like slid their foot on the floor. Is that really what it was? It was a very weird say. Emily Mall put on the floor. There Bryan rival Taj. He was walking through the museum. And you hear the flip flops. Like very loud sounds. Do you think those were the shoes or do you just entire way. And the Getty. Museum only only episode. Wash that scene to see if I could get to the bottom of whether or not that was re. And the fact that they as a pulling the camera away from the drone shock of away from the manner where they're staying you guys. I'm sorry so the fact that she apologized made me think it will start to choose the router film the scene from Todd Shack. Seventeen back into the left. Yes I'd heard but I've also been interested farts aside. I've also been interested in you. Put them aside now. Just lifting chic. I have been interested. Generally immediately what took that was just an aside? I've been interested generally in how Karen is being in this season as well way. Karen has been edited and presented. Like I said last episode. She got a lot of talk and a lot of content and then she wasn't really relevant in terms of the top or bottom dishes and then this episode. Obviously there's a struggle bus at it happening because where she ends up and because of the groups But it's just I just don't know what to think about her place on this show. She's giving a lot of content. So I'm guessing that she will continue to be at the center of a lot as you compare caring for example to Gregory Gregory who wins the first challenge But we're not seeing Gregory. Nearly as much as we're seeing Karen on this season so I just. I don't know what to think and I'm not trying to read into it and say what we're seeing. I'm not doing the edge of cops doing that. I just interesting from from a storytelling point of view. What stories they're telling with these chefs. We're seeing a lot of the same. I mean obviously it comes down to the content. The chefs are giving them because Stephanie is giving them a lot of anxiety We're GONNA get a lot of that from Stephanie. It's always entertaining to the point that it becomes difficult to watch But she she's present on the show in that way and other chefs are present in other ways but for Karen. I'm just fascinated by by what's happening there. And then the Brian Malarkey part. I mean this is all Mike. You spark this sparked the mark but I had a tweet from Travis Payne last week before the episode goes really right after when they tease this week's episode and he said do you think the show will acknowledge the Ludo versus Brian Malarkey. Judges feud from the taste in two thousand thirteen and at the time. I didn't think that they would go there now. They didn't go there hardcore on the feud Brian sort of a Yada Yada and there was a dot dot dot says about the show being cancelled but it seemed like they were good friends. So I don't think that that went into the judging and losing to like Malarkey dish as he said all all is well it seems like Malarkey world and so so the taste for people who don't know with essentially the voice of cooking wear it was. Let's see I think it was Ludo. It was Malarkey. I think it was bored. Dane yeah and maybe one other person and basically they would like try. The Food Blind recruit ships for their team and then though chefs compete against one another. I don't believe Malarkey one actually. Don't you spoiler alert? He won two seasons out of three. That exists once were alert. There is one for there. Were three seasons of the taste. Ordained picked girl that I went to high school with like Yo that Mia Morgenstern and it was a mortgage. Yeah yeah very strange degree name. Yeah all right well in the spirit of top chef. We can't do anything around here without being corporate shields for something so take a break and listen to this ad and we'll be right back hopefully brooke isn't it at least well. It didn't sound like Brooke but we're back anyway. Hopefully we'll be able to give Brooke on one of these one time to get into the elimination challenge in Greater. I think we're just GONNA talk some more ass around just getting a lot. Arousal both S. I m O JOSH FOR OUR TALENT. I Roll Antonio said like Oh. We're working between Karen with the groups that I was like Tips is that how John just tell us about. Oh tell us about the The challenge everything. I don't have anything to say that. I guess I was bored. I was a little bored by the show show interest. I love the challenge. A little bored you on our culture flab. I don't know that I'd say. Hey Dr per. Maybe I do get bored by it you Kate Museum. I don't like to the Dad Ez Pass. We went to Paris like four or five years ago museum pass. We lost it in our rental car and Italy so that was the one thing so we had another one and I was like. Let's get a consolidated three day pass and we used it. We drive times for one of the museums there in August. We basically we used it for two museums and like halfway through our plumbers museum. Line Annecy. He looks at me and he goes. I don't think I'm a museum person. I was like Oh. It's just not for me. Think you would've liked the challenge better. If the art styles they chose where Economy or like parter surrealism. Whatever I felt like you know the strains of they chose honestly. I'm not an art historian if I looked at them. I probably couldn't tell you what they came from right. I'm not a historian. Yes she's embracing it. I think that that definitely would have helped. I think for me. It was also a little difficult to. I think that this is like a berry. Showed like one piece of her like I think I got it great. I love to get to get other people's takes on this but I think this is a hard challenge to convey for television. Let alone for how to convey Able like I think it was difficult for me. Ask Somebody who's not an art history student as somebody who is not like a great appreciator of this stuff to really like Buell that translation in the same way that last week belt so tangible even if you've never been to those restaurants before everybody has a communal feeling about your favorite restaurant and wanting to be inspired by your favorite restaurant and that felt very top. Sheffi to me. This felt almost like a different show to me and I lost me to a certain extent. And here's what I think last week like if if it instead of like if you've ever had Thai food they're talking about Thai cuisine and Thai inspiration. It's not going to mean anything to you. Be At least there. They put specific dishes down. And they talked about. You could relate to hear if you don't know anything about Rococo versus Baroque versus renaissance. I can see which which I frankly all I know is what they told me on the show for the most part but if instead we hadn't been shown like here's a piece specific piece of art specific work that speaks me and developed off of that work like we see on project runway several times a go around the city and have to take photographs or things or in a specific area that inspire them and they kind of work off of that photo when that inspiration here instead of us style if it was a specific piece that was inspiring them and we had that as a kind of a point of reference. I would've rather had that because at least disagree. Oh well I disagree with you just agreeing. Well I if you do that. You got the challenge that eliminating Melissa back in the season twelfth if you remember which is New Mexico on their mind when they went to Mexico and they were like. Here's four painting. Make make a piece of food off of the painting and remember we were at the time and the baby's the roundtable. We were pretty angry about that because that is really pigeonholing. You what I really liked about the challenges. The fact that the pigeons were free is the fact that you could base it off of the history you can base it off of the the aesthetics based off of particular piece if he wanted to what I really loved about. This challenge is look one of the fundamental flaws of top chef as a show is that you can't taste with your eyes. Not yet what I liked about. This challenge is the fact that something say and I've been doing some work in the quarantine scientific breakthroughs. Imagine you putting your face directly on a plate laughing pretty hard to what are you picturing? what are you? Taste it with your eyes right. It was just more than Mike is taking our podcast to like a whole new world. He's like genre bending we're now. Si podcasting rather than aside. Would you rather have little tongues coming out of your eyes or little is on your tongue? I am I thank you for coming to the PODCAST. That seat and I'm GonNa just I agree. I think it would have been horrible if they begin. Here's here's a set of paintings and you're kind of have to pick one but I just went to the Getty Center for the first time this past Thanksgiving when my mom was visiting over the holidays. It's an amazing. Space was a lot of artwork if they'd been given the given that opened Canvas Open Palette of exploring and finding a piece that speaks themselves like. Here's six pieces are limited number. Find something that speaks to you. And even if it's just the story behind it or the colors of it having a piece as a point of reference and something about that piece again whether it be the story that color or what's actually picked it versus being an art style. That's harder to wrap my mind around. I as a viewer would have enjoyed it by Jim. I have a question for you specifically about this because I remember you did really well in Charleston. With the Edna Lewis. Challenge where you're giving very giving a very open high of just HEO. Masha Lewis and do something that would be in her spirit. That seems to be different than pick a piece. Pick a painting and create a dish that was inspired by an art movement. How do you draw the line with that? And I know Brooke Williamson Shepherd Williamson has been on record saying she really struggles with this forced inspiration kind of thing. The show obviously does throw that at you as a chef Heston. So how do you balance that? When you're on the show. I really think that these types of challenges. I think that probably nine out of ten dishes. That are are dishes. That people had in their mind already but then they make a story that connects it to the piece of art or whatever they're looking for like mean like me you know. She looks at a picture of the last supper. And says this reminds me of birds. And then you're like okay. I guess you know sure but I you know. Or they gave Michael Bolton Poltava and they gave full of crap they gave Brian. We'll talk crap about choosing the colors which to me. Seems like a pretty fair inspiration for this these dishes but Tom was like all he did was say. This pitcher has color. And that's what he did. But you know it's so hard to gain inspiration or I. I just think that I think that it's better to have addition your mind that you can tell a story as to how relates and as long as that story is believable. The judges are going to believe your aspirations but I mean they seem to be okay with needs inspiration. Which for me was just totally. I mean just out there completely so I think that sometimes we get started now when we win. Everyone Louis Challenge. They gave us the cookbook. And they said you can read this cookbook and you can gain inspiration from that and that becomes much easier as a chef and as you can say. Oh I like this idea. And we compare with that idea and you can see these techniques. She was actually using to make those dishes. But in this instance I duNNo. It's just difficult. I I know the has a lot of trouble with this but I'm not so sure that that's true for has trouble. I remember correctly and correct me if I'm wrong. Is that like there. There's one to pick something from your childhood. W- it's very broad but you have to use something as a point of inspiration versus if it's like here's one of six or seven things that you have to draw inspiration from. I think I think it was more where it was like. An open inspiration versus a very for Seattle is because I think she you know it's the difference between Mikey could probably relate between long form Improv. Game for him Improv. Where long it can go anywhere. But at least we. If you're doing a specific game there's usually a very specific set of structured. Sometimes having that frame in help you at least know a specific direction to go in. I think what Brooklyn been saying was like for those for those where. It's a very specific sort of direct. Inspirations she she does well to those broad open ones where it's hit something from this year. That was great. So it's been interesting to see how I think some of actually would have liked to have seen how Brooklyn on him this and where where she would have picked up where she would have struggled. Sorry Jim good just because I do think they told him told. The people like you cannot choose still lives of fruit for your inspiration and ceautiful apple entertainment painting a Turkey dinner or something. Yes those famous renaissance Turkey dinners vincis Ham Sandwich. Yes you think. Do you think that the judges went through like a crash course on each on each of artistic styles like in terms of okay? Just let you know when you're talking about the Rococo team and their dishes. Here's the sorts of things that you're gonNA probably wants to play back. I'm GONNA throw some shade at Tom. I'm want to do on this podcast. When he was actually that was far too much like this other movement I was like come on. Come on man. He's got a little listener table. He's kind of checks off. Your reporting was more Rococo. He has he hasn't won air the audio tour from the Getty Museum that has just kind of like playing Baroque with his book. Oh yes of course baroque. Then you're not baroque whatsoever. When you run out of Monet I think that up. I don't think I don't know if you guys how many of you watched last chance kitchen and they had some flashbacks to the Josh. The they were did flashbacks to Jamie's dish and Padma headset at NC this during the actual so had did unfortunately make. The this was wasn't baroque as much as it was broke. And I'm like Oh. I caught that I laughed. I would've made hot rococo just chocolate hot chocolate guys. Edit this out sandwich cuckoo for cocoa PUFFS can I ask? I WANNA bring this up. I want to breach the subject because we have we have. We have populations represented on this podcast. Lisa Khanate is a Canadian Jew. And she made she made like Mexican on earlier. Is Lisa Fernandez right? And she made like Hispanic inspired Portuguese man inspired. She's got Portuguese Jewish Food Mexican brisket. What's happening here like? I'm very intrigued. By that dish. Eric combined with the Bar Mitzvah. Yeah I thought for I. I actually thought she. She said you know in terms of the inspiration. She was inspired by the clashes. The cultural clash that she saw in these paintings. And I don't remember that being something that was suggested as was a feature of her time period but That seems to me more like what you're talking about. Jim With the shoe horned dish that she comes up with the story for. This is a dish. She wanted to make the competition wanting to make. But I was very intrigued by And I I would definitely like to eat that dish. She got the. She got the job on the plate. Jamie wow yeah sorry. I made that joke in the texturing before I wanted to make it again. It was very goddess Jewish person. I absolve you of any guilt. Thank you Catholic. I TODD CAST. Jamie had on his last. What do you think was the hardest? What do you think was the hardest? I guess it seems like Baroque might have been the hardest to get a grasp on due to like you said Brian's comment about like this doesn't represent Brookvale and obviously Jamie just being like the Baroque means simple. So I'm going to put chicken on a plate without any sauce. Did that did that. Seem like hardest one to cook for. Were there any other ones or the four that seemed like tougher grass from perspective? Recu passing the easiest to grasp for me just based on how it was described to us. Yeah plus I think that's the most conducive to cooking right like these people are used to more fine dining. And it's like Oh this is all about lavish Nisshin up lands you. Oh and everything I. I think that you know it's an ability for someone that's I guess. I don't think it's coincidental that you know Stephanie. Melissa and Gregory produced the visually the best three dishes like day just looked stunning because they were able to really tap into that whereas it's a little tougher to be like they were very simple so you must cook simple food as you know as a representative of the molly food to be a nice subtle shade of barral into the area. In the moment that the lobster one time was even presented as a possibility coming from Melissa to I was like I. I have a very good feeling that this is delicious so it was. It was no surprise to me that she was the winner. That sounded like something I would like to go to a fancy ass restaurant and eat that lobster Montagne there. There were definitely some of those people that were in the the top of their class for their specific style. That you knew was kind of like you know you just had to pick somebody and so I. I wasn't looking at as much as I love having. Brian will ties you on my team. I knew that just the way they had talked about. He wasn't going to be winning the taking away from Melissa in that final wrap like. He's he's just. They had to pick somebody from that era and just happened to be him. They can primal. Taj has more respect for fried rice than he does for the poll. Baroque era. And I feel that way Kurt but the opposite for staffing like I felt like if they didn't have to pick somebody to be in the bottom. I don't know if she would have been in the bottom. They seem to like it. Like I guess. Tse Gas Your Pasta. Short of undercooked or something. Like there could have been more. It could have chosen a bowl instead of plate for presentation. Like sorry athlete. It was kind of like step someone put Malarkey and the bomb. But they're like he's not really like she was definitively fourth last just by default speaking of that first episode. Mike and how groups can bring people down which we saw in Charleston with Jamie and we have seen in the past right where the immunity Burying persons dish is the one that brings the whole group down and thus their immunity is a problem because they should have gone home but and they're the one that dragged team into the bottom and someone else who cooked better than they did ends up going home We know that happened with Stephanie. We've seen that happen on the show before that seems to be what Karen is suggesting. Although it may be what the producers sold her to say with what is happening with Kevin not the same scenario in my mind at all. No I I agree with you there. Because it's not like it Kevin's group was all in the bottom because of Kevin Stash. It was like well. You know if Kevin didn't have immunity it would have been you but also your dish was shit to like she. She just likes to cook to Berlin Dash and like ended up in the bottom some weird technicality. Right right yeah I just I did not feel it was the same was. She was not going to go home if she went home. Because Kevin had immunity. She was going to go home because she was the worst one on a team of three. Kevin Their team. You could have gone to any team. she was the worst one from the group of three period. And that's the way it goes so I don't know I just got a little triggered by that but I'm just I guess I'm so protective of Kevin. I want them to do so. Well and I wasn't sure if it was gonna be like Kevin could have been in the bottom for his team but he would have been not considered in the final four people who were on the bottom or if it was going to think what point was his immunity going to come into play. You know what I'm saying. If his whole team had cooked brilliant dishes sure that's different but that's not the case like I feel like you know if Kevin had a worst dish. I think it was like salaciously worse than Karen's and even if the entire team could brilliantly then you have a brilliant dish that's not going to go home in the bottom for I mean. I think I was thinking the same thing that you were Antonio. It was kind of strange thing for her to be vocalizing like if she had kicked brilliantly and Kevin had cooked very poorly and she was still about a four Stephanie position where they would have had to come up with some way to say something other than like your your dishes sensational just like they. They had to come up with something positive to say about the Bryans dishes. I didn't think either of the Bryans we're going to win. But they were just by default the best in their style and you have to kind of say something positive and I think Jim you experienced this a little bit with When you and Amanda had to cook like the Feast of this seven fish which is right in terms of like and that was more collaborative obviously but there is a certain perspective right of like the elephant in the room of like this person by their own performance could link yours weather consequently consequentially or not. I agree I don't think this is like a Nicholas Nicholas. Sell me situation either where someone goes home because they have immunity. I don't think this was ever at all possibilities but it would have been awesome like if if Kevin would have been like okay. I have immunity. So I'm going to pick the team with the best of the best people who I think are the best group and then just totally targeted into nothing and be like all right there. You go but I think that would get you punished top-shelf more than two then like rewarding you for smart strategic play. I think they'd be like what's your problem you should not. I mean that's interesting game theory but this is not the place for that and I also think told to your point intended. I totally agree but also feel like personally this deliberation was between Leeann versus Jamie. Because I think while Karen it seemed like she I would screwed either way. Josh's choice here but really you know while it did come down to like Karen might miss the mark. When it came especially from a color perspective it seemed like it really was Leeann and Jamie just also not cooking it and we talk about this all the time right of like. Would you rather have a good dish that fails the theme versus a bad dish but at least tries to buy into it and it feels like this was with the ladder? That was sort of the case. The bottom to this episode. I had another question. Generally speaking about the realities of how this challenge played out Jamie's issue right is that he cooks his chicken sous vide which I would imagine should've kept the juices in the thing. I don't know I'm famous on this podcast for not being a sous vide expert by any stretch of the imagination. But I know this about you. I understand over reported. I understand that. That's the issue right. He doesn't get the shoe on the plate and that's the problem is chicken eats dry and then the next two teams that go up after that you see table side sauce and happening with. I Know Melissa's dish. I believe there were other dishes that this was happening where this is being poured on at the table side. Why could that not have happened with? Jamie's Ju- Why is that? Not something that's going on. I'm wondering if it's because in gyms maybe you know more about that. I think the logistics wondering if it's because like if you've got the zoo in like a serving bowl that's kind of parts of the area that's meant to be part of the service of versus. Maybe just wasn't like that for Jamie. Good Jim how this a lot of times you need to preplan pick your plates and so you can't really run over to the racking like poor your sauce and some gravy vote at the end and you have to specify ahead of time that you want us a gravy boat to sauce table side most most of the time. Now it's possible. Jamie realize he was on time and there was some sort of an option edible. They probably wouldn't have said No. You can't do it but at that point you're still out of time anyway. Whether you're you're in some kitchen you're unfamiliar with trying to run over and find some sort of sourcing implement. Maybe that's why Stephanie couldn't get her Tortellini. In a bowl maybe they were out of it. They would just use it for Melissa Soup goals. Yeah we people struggling for space the FRY or to use another. We don't really haven't talked much about people like struggling to have the right flatware or the right to serving dishes and a have you covered on that Jim Lake is that how many times has that been initiative you've encountered on an issue but sometimes like when you go especially the top chef kitchen there may they may only have like ten of one type of platen there and so it early. You may be stuck with a little bitty square plate or something. That's not really the best for your dish or you know. Maybe you need something that holds sauce better. It's usually not a problem but it could be if you're if you're not careful about it. That's an interest observed just thinking that that could be an interesting challenge. Where somehow they you get the benefit of choosing what Mike I kind of look at you as the historian is has there been a top chef competition where the plates is the variable. It sounds from yes there were. There was a yeah. I'm pretty sure we had a quick fire in the past couple of seasons where it was like. You have to choose either spoon. Or I think it was the bowl or the plate and that determine your teams for the elimination challenge and that and that was also how you determined. The dish was like what utensil were. Will you use to transport it to the judges? Mouths your hand. You had to feed Tom. That's right now. Remembering and service. Eighty bird comes airplane Malaga. They gave him the baby bird. They're like I don't understand is that they gave him a picture of chattering teeth. It's like aw okay I got it. I know what to do. Is the baby bird plus Chattering Mike? The only one that was surprised. That Jamie win. I actually thought this was going to be lands curtain. Call here. That's wild because you know just looking at the ingredients. What Leeann made sounds like something I would love to I Love Duck. A garlic sauce is an incredible thing. In combining that with ducks sounds wonderful. The celery Euratom always here or any like savory dish that has an apple component. I'm usually interested in like all the components. Leon's dish sounded great. Age is a cluster when it came together. I don't love beets but I'll eat them. I certainly would eat in the in the in the context of everything else. It's on that did not coalesce and Jim. I think you brought up something that like. I hadn't even really either remember or realize about Leeann having worked in an official capacity before she struggling dude. What's going on with with Leeann? She's really struggling. She did so much better on her last chance. Kitchen comeback than she has this around. And she's I'm GonNa maybe she's just in her head a little bit and I don't know this dish to me although it seems good. It's one of those ones where she needed to. Seriously edit like two kinds of puree garlic sauce roasted apples celery puree you know duck comfy and breast and eggs and it's just like a million ingredient in ingredients and I think even Malarkey said like when you have place there's you might want to edit it. Sounds like we're talking about her. At least in this podcast is like maybe somebody who comes into this with like a bit of that like production advantage and like somebody who would like know a thing or two about maybe like what has worked or you know. The pallets the judges and is consistently failing. Is She being rated on a harder? Rubric is that getting her head is just. I'm curious because I think certainly you know the end. Was I in my draft or so i. I've been expecting a lot more than what we've been getting. I I do think I do think that maybe I'll like if you ge- even though she has that experience and may be detrimental one way or beneficial the other but I think that where she games the most benefit is if she's in the middle like a bad dish has nowhere to hide. A good dish will end you top but if she has an easy mediocre dish and then that's probably where where the production side of things might have been at the the most many people still in the competition. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think I don't know I was looking at that one of the reasons why I felt. Maybe she would have gone above. Jamie Lee said that Jamie had the art right but the cooking was off. And you see that. Jamie actually had a very nice playing with. That's another reason why I like this challenges because it was just like a fun way to view how the planning incorporated into the aesthetic as well whereas Leeann admitted it was one of the worst playing. She's ever had in her culinary life to the place where she bliss off to raise. I did not see a yellow beach chalet in there at all. I just saw read read. Read it so I just thought like I thought it was two strikes versus one. But I guess Jamie's butchering of the chicken was something that really went out at the end of the day. You have to Leeann a break. She was trying to put the Alpha. The omega on a plate was literally planning Jesus God The Lord. That is everything of course. It was going to be difficult to pull that off. You have to give her a little bit of credit for at least trying to do that. No one else was playing. Jesus I hope that she would have gotten eliminated comeback three eliminations later to Simone. And we've got a little bit of a preview batch fully ahead until last chance kitchen but we do see that. At least they're Jamie seems to be insinuating that one of the reasons he was eliminated was the order of the serving of dishes. He kind of said because I served last by chicken was not as up to par as it should have been so the time between I guess being plated of the judges trying it was at least part of why. Jamie seemed to think he also went Tom. Of course Alaskans gets from was not by. Jim talked to me about that. Because I'm assuming that's interesting too. I know that they try to stagger. Finish Times for you all so that things aren't sitting out for too long but like if a tasting runs long or you just like keeping things under a heat lamp and praying. We'll know that'll probably have been better. I mean even the chicken would have still continued to cook under key lamp. It would have what happens. When you one of these group tastings at a table. They may start with one dish and when you see them tasted sometimes they edited where it doesn't look like they just taste one dish of time but they usually chasing dish and they tasting it and they're talking about it and if they talk about one dish for ten minutes. That means that you're dish is just sitting on a table. Hasn't gotten too now. I do think the most the time. They're they're lenient. They understand what you're dish is not going to be hot anymore. If it's been sitting on the table for ten minutes we haven't touched it but I don't know that that would necessarily 'cause Jamie's dish dry out. I will tell you that that's another well. That may be another good reason to sauce table side because your your sauce in a boat is going to stay a lot hotter and even if you pour it and then it sits for ten minutes. If there's a lot of sauce on that plate it's going to help keep that dish warm and wed hot and heavy coming through. How do we follow up? Warm and wet -fluenced territory and take us back to the old Jesus Duck. Can we get him another random question? Where the Hell is Jen Carol? This has been super surprise me to have her become the Melissa. Michelle of the season like the most purples contested. Asserting just like I mean. I think she's more well known for her personality. Maybe this means it seems like maybe next week. She's in a bit of trouble but I was very surprised that like we. I don't think we saw her quickfire. Dish Her dish was like barely mentioned. Sola I'm just very surprised. But I mean like you said Antonio I think it's very tough to dissect the edited top chef and really is like if you're having a good or a bad day you will be feature that episode. It's very Australia and survivor in that perspective. But I'm just surprised how JEN has been I mean. She's made it further than she has passed to appearances which is a good thing but we really have seen much from her. Yeah Melissa Jen and Lisa were next to each other at the quickfire tables and none of them were shown in the quickfire. I think they may have just lost the real from what they were filming there because they all three just got the chop and not that is not another show. They just weren't included was odd and then Genu- in this in the challenge than maybe not being able to say neo-classicist she. She just made this. That they felt was just finishing sauce. So really not super. Yeah it was it was. Did you feel Seen Josh? When Lisa was talking about how she was inspired by conflict and including prunes because it was important to help you poop thing conflict. In the sense that it's a it's a dried prune deeply dried Brune at that that saves John Ritter's life in problem. Child shot by by Kramer and he gets shot in the Prune. Thank he arrives in. Look a giraffe. It was it was very odd. There was there was some very fun moments in these episodes speaking moments Haley. I would like to ask you about this. Can we talk about GAELS shoulders? She was really serving some shoulders. Did you notice this on her outfit at the dinner? I did not Mike. Did you notice. Did anyone notice smart between that and her coining the term away fee grape Alzheimer episode for Gail shoulders off the chain that Alpha was was cold shoulder ta just the shoulders. Kinda or it was a little bit. There was a little bit of shape to it. It was a it was a. It was a really cool. Top definitely stood out to me. Maybe I've been watching too much drag race jump right knocking it out of the park with these dining venues. I don't know what it was about this particular episode like my God. I would want to eat there. Even if I ate just Jamie's over cooked chicken for four courses like just the everything around them was. I don't know if it was in the getty or if they found another place in just trusted up to look like a wing of the but it was just so spectacular announced like the commentary from a man who's learning how to eat with his eyes slowly. Growing those tongue is by the time we finally go outside. I'll be able to take on the world and a whole new way. That's how you get cove in nineteen exactly what your items away away from people. And now you need a blindfold in addition to your mess. That's the bird box. I would also like to ask just generally and I'm sure Jim will be on this. Maybe emily I don't know about anyone else. Does anyone know what charred album oil is? It was in Melissa's dish and that is not something I'm familiar with. Go for it. Yeah album is the chives garlic onion family and I'm sure that she just got a good oil and probably stranger really well to get that real pretty thick dark green color dish was so beautiful legitimately gorgeous. It was a definite winner. Just onsite eating with is alone and then to have ludo say it was a Michelin Michelin dish. For one time. That was pretty high praise. She really crushed it. Generally dishes that either tonight or you for good reasons were for ill. I will say that Stephanie Seymour's Blow Baloney Tortellini. Sounded freaking out that Morbidelli Tortellini. I was a call. Yes Bologna and so I was. I was super excited about that. You know I I really do think that. This is an all-star season. Everything looks really good. I think it makes it easy to to find mistakes when they happen. So many of those dishes even even though Stephanie Seymour was on the on the bottom of that group. You know they didn't. They barely even mentioned you know Greg. Look heartbroken when he didn't get any acknowledgment at the end did his. His dish wasn't near the top. And so I think there were. I mean this just is going to be a real a season of really good food and it's really easy to point out mistakes but Jim I wanna ask about that because obviously as a top chef historian you know. I think the common knowledge but the big rumor behind all stars one was that like it was pretty much like Richard blaze and then a good amount of other fun personalities. Are you getting a sense of any front runners right now just based on either their reputations going in or what we see them do so far? Well I you know for me. I will tell you that the person who I don't think the best Senate her first time around but as super amazing and it's easy to say now for this episode is Melissa but when when the question year went out to everyone who has ever been on top chef. Are you interested in all stars? Who would you recommend? Melissa was my number one pick. Oh for that list and I hope to see her. Go really far in fact. Melissa Gregory and Stephanie Seymour. All on my We're all I look at you so yeah I think to say Kevin looks like a front runner right now. I think probably volt is. Yo- is going to get a lot of love throughout the season. Especially the way he's gone and the way his face is waiting for Haley to say. Yeah I do. I do think that those people who were on the earlier seasons are in much better shape than the the newer folks Ryan. Husky was the other one on my list of recommendations. I really wish he'd made it back on Husky. Yeah I remember him. Yeah I remember. He was a Swiss cheese top chef rain. I don't know I assume for Kurt as well. Your Mobile Wolf Spain near the judge crazy hat at that table. A Walston right from the Simpsons Bring Your Wolf Castle Guy. I wanted to ask about that. I thought there was like in in tribute to the renaissance. They brought some sort of fly renaissance and Messenger to sit at the table Vigo the Carpathian. What should we know about Wolf Spain? I think that's the right name for the restaurant but I was first told about his restaurant like five or six years ago and that they may have been shooting in his restaurant and the way that the restaurant was described to me now he is. An artist turned chef. Like he's a classically trained art student. Then turn chef and his restaurants me was described as a supper club which requires a password and a giant. It's like a thousand dollar played to get in and then it's like this weird avant-garde food dining experience and people. I know it's really hard to get on the list and I know that it's that made. That may have been where they were manner. They didn't didn't say but it was subscribe to me is like maybe sometimes rotating between the arts warehouse and just sort of the super secretive food. Art Sounds Awesome. I will I want for dissipated in a meal in a meal with an artist. It's actually meanwhile true. I heard y'all give messy Wesley Law on the first podcast. But Chino mean me and Wesley and this artist were like airbrushing to raise on plates and then artists had this idea is that I mean it was sort of a protest food waste at the same time so everything that people didn't eat off their plates. Instead of going into the trash went into this art bucket and then it was taken outside and put on this giant canvas that had art on it. It's sort of like a color in play like a two bones of putting one section and a different color than another section and then everyone who came to this came outside and then they looked at all the food waste it was then turn on into our and then the dude poured fluid all over it and win on fire. It was one of the craziest. Craziest expe- I have been doing justice. How weird this event. One time that he would light it on fire that come as a shock to you. I really wasn't exactly sure what was going to happen to you. This way I say okay. This is really kind of gross but interesting. I know I was was fun to Airbrush the Gaza Stencil artists so he gave us stencil plate and then we would airbrush pure as on the plate and then on top of it and do this really awful food art installation. That's a little off topic for the story but at the same time we'll stay in this in the museum kind of memory of the strange art event that I went to. I'm looking at pictures of spam right. Now it's like if you were dining in like an ice spy book. It's so ECLECTIC. What's with you in the is the case with is and I taste with my is I like. I mean yeah. That's my new horror movie. My My new horror movie is have tongues rule to be on. I'm going out on top for me. Fox is saying I have to support her choice. We'll always have lost somebody who watched last chance kitchen and tell us what happened. I think yeah I can. I can do that so you had. Jamie going up against Joe Pasta Joseph. And they were in last chance kitchen. I had hoped again that they were gonNA be. We'd be doing all of these last chance kitchen competitions in various restaurants around La being driven around in the BMW but no so it was a game of chicken where they had joe and Jamie had to cook chicken but they kind of turned it into a strange reverse auction where they asked like. Joe How much time do you need? Twenty five and then no Jamie if that's you guys probably do a quicker credits. Us okay. Twenty four Joe. Could you go faster? You know twenty three so they bid back and forth get the time to a specific level and then they did the same thing for ingredients and says like oh. I can do ten ingredients Joe. That's a bill over the background. Yeah we can do we can do. We can do it so they end up. Having to develop each a chicken dish in twenty minutes using no more than seven ingredients including the chicken including salt. The strange thing was I had this in my notes and Brian Edwards pointed this out on twitter. I hope someone can explain what incentive? The contestants had by going lower with the prep time ingredients. Why not just agree to the higher numbers and I have to say to Brian. No nobody can explain this because there was no incentive given for them to not just say you know what ninety minutes and then for the other testicle you know what cool and what about twelve ingredients. You know what sure so other than time. The top chef security team. That's in place. That is a forcing you on pain of death to to really part. Gouveia hijinks. Well yeah you know that if they did that? Tom cliquot cuts the camera. Choose them out for about ten minutes about how you have to do this challenge. And they're like okay. Let's enroll in pretend like we never had this moment happen. Yeah and you talked about this before to you but once once you get the the what. The challenge is going to be from Tom. All the all the camera shut off and then legal comes in and you have to sign stuff it says I understand the rules. Who aren't complain. Somebody's gotTa get eliminated. I'M NOT GONNA say I didn't understand the rules so that you have to sign a fridge challenge if the sign another disclosure form an agreement saying that you understand the rules and then. I'm sure that they're like okay. We have to you have to make this interesting. You have to each other down because you're right. It would have been interesting if they if they would have given the whoever chose the shortest time in the least ingredients some kind of advantage maybe unknown advantage that would have made them giving them more incentive to to be down agreed there could have been game elements. They could have put it. Make more sense to like if you have the winning if you bid twenty minutes and you're currently the winning bid and you also get accents gives the other person incentive to say. No we can do this in nineteen minutes because I want. I don't want you to have X. so there's there's game elements that you could have infused into the habit. Make a little bit more sense but otherwise it just seemed as edited and has shown a little bit off. Also exciting when they were showing. When Jamie was talking through his final dish to Tom. They actually showed Joe's dish on the screen. And then as I was taking my notes I was like wait a minute this this. This has leaks. That wasn't one of. They both leaks. I don't remember Gina's is is the same thing. 'cause Thomas Joe Talk to me about the chicken thighs and I'm like wait. It says Jamie cooked chicken so for some reason. The editing tape just completely mix the two of that. Would it be an interesting thing if they pulled like a Steve Harvey and Thomas? Like I made a mistake. I'm so sorry. It was not that dish. We didn't get Tom's chicken impression which would fit right into arrested development so I was pleased with that Tom. Cooking chicken was not on my last chance to talk. But I'm glad we got cockle Kagaku. Yeah I'm glad that happened. That makes me upset for the chicken people in my life it is. It is especially good though that we got that considering we did not get another episode of. What would tom do this week? I think we now know the answer to. What would Tom do? And the answer is nothing would host last chance kitchen. Yeah and it's not pre taped. Is that what's happening or is it hard for him to say well? I didn't walk through the getty. Ibm So. I know. I did my interview with Tom. Cliquot two to three weeks ago at this point yeah top chef was about to premiere and I was talking about very excitedly as if like and like he was talking about it. As if there were like challenges that were filmed that were in the can already on my. I can imagine the scenario where it could be a post production issue. Potentially that is something that is plaguing the industry right now with like. Where's the equipment? How many people are allowed in as if anybody at all is that even essential in our correction. What have you? There's those are those are very valid issues and if they are looking at how many. How many resources do we have to spend on on top chef? What time do maybe an easy cut? I predict that when somebody reenters the competition initially and there's nobody in last chance kitchen for a week we're going to get. What would Tom do episode that? That's my prediction that make sense. Joe Ends of winning. He made delivering chicken thighs with leaks time and lemon throw in some salt and butter. And you've got all the ingredients right there. Actually it was. It was chicken liver that one of the questions that has like. He's doing chicken and liver experienced or is it chicken liver and they clarify so. Yeah Joe's ingredients or salt chicken leaks time water lemon butter. Jamie's to- Tomato Jalapeno Lemon garlic oil salt and then Tom had to remind him. Oh yes and chicken. He thought for a moment there that he actually had room for an extra ingredients. He wishes he had planned better for having butter in his sauce. And ironically it was a little bit of a nod to the zoo. That's Tom I think. Joe OVER THE EXTRA. Tom On top of the sausage. Oh did really quickly was really smart. Jamie's got a little muddy. He was kind of somewhere between raw and cooked. But otherwise it wasn't a lot of commentary from Tom. I'm like why Joe One another. That was a really great sauce. What's he was? That water was an ingredient. An element should not be considered and in there. You shouldn't have to count it. I Agree Kathy Planet. Quick buyers on on this loving ingredient shush yet how much they make heart has to be the protein. Did they take quick fire? That was the gym participated but Zodiac. So I think that they had the the earth wind and fire stuff. They just needed some heart which they had through. Jim Smith multi all along the one that got meaning. You would definitely be getting a ring. I probably feel that very strongly in my heart. I think you'd be picked planets here. I appreciate that Jamie. Ever pick boneless chicken skinless boneless chicken breasts to his. Hey that's that was the same problem on the Chausson. Why would you pick the the show that you can cook chicken? Why would you pick the least flavorful especially when you take the skin off bid even yeah? Yeah he immediately then just remove the skin through it through to the the friar. Tom was like interesting choice. Yeah that's offensive. Well Yeah I mean. I think it's interesting right because this has been lampshade. We've been talking about this and are pretty right. That Jamie was known for doing a clean sweep at L. C. K. In your season Jim so I thought I think maybe one of the I mean. I don't want to go to Tinfoil hat here. But maybe one of the reasons why he was eliminated because they felt like mobile set him L. K. Will have an interesting streak. But I felt like this was just a bad day for a guy that ordinarily would do super well with this type of thing I would say. Specifically tops comment was well. That's not the first choice of chefs around the world. But go ahead which I thought was extra salt from Tom. Totally that's an ingredient. Does anybody else have anything else on the? I'm so excited for next week. Only because Brian Malarkey has a giant newsboy cap on for the drama episode. And it's the stupidest choice ever and I'm so excited to do you think he like looked at his bags when he was packing. And he's like hell. Many hats fit all nice. Have you ever been in a production of newsies? Wish I feel like that's a very are you? Are you aware of Santa Fe? Are you there? They're not yet. I just get my crutches first before I head off to Santa Fe. Few more dollars than he's Outta here to stay boy. Jimmy Kimmel John cates. We're talking to the king and the King and Queen of New York and Josh. Emily Faulk Avenue that you know the rest You know this is this Mike a Copyright strike so we have to be careful. Yeah if it's a parody. You're okay to Brooklyn's here. Jim's winner you spending Wanda off to the wiggle room. I gotTa Tell You I am a terrible singer. You heard of shut up him. He has been theory. Shut up Jim's idea to say that. I know that this may be your last runaround Lewanda but it is. It brings so much joy to my anti kitchen at every week to catch the wiggle room and the and the one-off and a I. It's always on my my must ideas whereas there's so much rh AP that. I had been lovingly. Say Mike the Picard. I've card has been so awesome. And you're almost podcast has been really great. I think BLO I. You know I've been. I've been stockpiling all of my westworld. So I'm going to probably marathon down the road a little bit. I have three on my. Dvr So far but survivors been so great. Y'All give give rob a big hug for me. I still listen to you all the time. Even though I'm behind my viewing. But Tracy when she gets comes in the kitchens and I'm just like why are these people yelling in your kitchen and on the thing I off started? I had to pause me. She's just going to get this. Here's my handshake promised to you. The one dollar will will stay active until you submit a Wando. So that's that's the last one so if you hold out the wind bypassed to keep going so disappointed that those. The WOMBATS has sold out so quickly. I wasn't able to order in time. All shame that you don't know somebody who can send you a wombat not wearing one right now. I can't send you. I can absolutely send you gotta I really. As soon as I heard y'all talking about the charity prosperity. I gotTA order quickly and then I just got busy in the kitchen. And then the next time I came on sold out quick and we adjusted battalion. And all of that. We're really psyched about what we raise so thinking about like. What's the next wave of that that we can do? Especially I'm feeling especially now giving given everything that's going on my bike. Big Paranoid concern is just like I don't WanNa ship Kobe. Nineteen to people. So I'm just trying to do a vet that I wanna make sure that everything is is that we want to do something else includes shipping and handling and your hospital bill but I just want to be careful with things coming out of New York but no. This was fabulous. Jim were ruled the happy here. This is such such a delight for me to get to spend my Saturday morning talking to you got to say to you that. I know that this isn't a survivor. Podcast but over the years. I'm not sure if I mentioned this on the lound last time First of all I still whenever I think about you and we're talking about me on location it always. It always makes me smile. There's other survivors. I They May. They may realize I'm lacking their tweets and reach out to me before. And so you know Christie Kubicki has like nothing makes my day better than when I see the Creek Vicky social media. Fine Oh my gosh. The two of you being friends warms. My heart gyms in Christian thing in the high I would just lie. That's all I need in the world right now is Kimmy Christian talking about literally any. Ib so here for robots who can cook. Let's do this. This is a range of by the way definitely arrange -able you make that happen to cut you off. Jim. Is I eight look. I know that. Everyone's in their home. Everyone's talked up the people who who were out there so working. Even I'm working by myself really everything that y'all do the network the means so much to me and I know that there's probably thousands of other rap listeners out there who enjoy hearing all as much as I do every day and I'm really it means a lot and times as bad as they are at least we can marathons bad television and listened to awesome about. It unappreciated Jim. I guess we're talking about like what we've made in our kitchens this week right. This is what we're doing these days and we made a roast chicken skin so good skin away. The kitten stole. Oh that is viciously ripped the skin off of the chicken. You're eating absconded. Yeah that was really upsetting. Weil started hopping on the counter and looking are butter. Oh that sucks seasoning and Asher has started to feed our dog and that's like a real slippery slope because we've been really trying to avoid that but like now he's outright holding out things to her and laughing as clear as to mock us so it's too cute to not curb though you know. Middle Spirit up unsuccessfully making an egg sandwich me to actually contain a sandwich so I converted to a Burrito with like hat cheddar and I had chicken in jail sausage which has not been impacting me negatively. The cake about that. Yeah I know you guys. A picture of the The breathe breathe that I had bought online which was amazing and then last night I did go to the Kogi burrito truck behind my building and I had their short burrito and the eggs and potato in is that right no no it was. It was like it was like a regular Burrito. Oh really oh I guess. I got the breakfast burritos to the The Roy Short is amazing. Attended go spicy pork so I so I got a couple of spicy pork tacos. I actually liked that more so I think next Friday because I think it's every Friday. I'm probably going to get the spicy. Rio upgrade the size of that thing jungle. Tony what do you got going on? Made some fried rice last night. Believe in their didn't jazz it up too much but the thing is I. For whatever reason that is warped deep in my psyche and would probably take years of therapy to undo is still follow. The Catholic lenten tradition of no meat on Fridays. So it's a little bit difficult in this time of panic in quarantine to get fresh ingredients that I might otherwise use other than meet other proteins things like that so it was just a pretty basic fried rice but I I went to great lengths to make sure that it was kicked up a little bit so that was last night. I just continue though to be amazed at the pictures on Emily's instagram and in her stories of what you guys are doing up there The pizza again this week blowing my mind. Just Stop Emily on instagram. Got To check out her stuff. She's got great stuff. Yeah Yeah I made a good carrot ginger soup yesterday. A great friend of the PODCAST. Who I won't name by name in case He wants to remain unnamed. Hook this up with some fresh produce recently and we have like an abundance of there are no more carrots in the world. It's because we have the carrots right now. And so the beets carrots. I'm any to send you some inquiries Al Flying Because Angela. My wife came back from her parents yesterday. And they own a winery slash. Ask PRETTY SURE. We drove past really long. Yeah twenty two down Josh. Wha what's the name of the winery doing Pillai of regular local shipping? I think there's shipping out wine bottles during curbside stuff so be sure to check it out. 'cause we all need to drink during these hard times but they have a kitchen that's closed and so she came back with. I'm going to say no less than ten bags of Pasta. So we have A. We're going to have to come up with a lot of pasta ideas but I've found out recently that my new obsession is Bob which I never had before it comes it comes. It comes at a lot of the the meal kits that we do and I don't know it has all these great things makes him next last time we had one with mushrooms which might be my favorite ingredient besides water if accounting on like water one mushroom to Earth Fire. Yeah he's got the winds taking care of anywhere near Anad and Chris Drinking Water as I can see what's on what's on the menu tonight. We're doing an old fashioned shrem boils tonight. You get a biscuit service you get one biscuit with some smoke salt and saw some dark hanes syrup with butter. You get a Trimble Spinach Salad with some large John. Soft poached egg in a sherry vinegar and chocolate chip cookies for dessert Enquire calling the restaurant and ordering out of the curve myself than so. I don't I don't think friends in mobile. Listen to this. This is no pressure on them but I actually message them. Right at the top of the PODCAST. When you were talking about your restaurant letting them know that they should reach out to you so I will get a few people. I know in mobile going to try to drive any listener. Here's this in his in the area. I will buy a gift card for the first person who DM's at let's I'll do it for myself anyway. But I will buy one for any listener First Listener who DMZ me off my. My twitter are closed but they are wide open on instagram. So if you if you slide in on Instagram I will do the same thing. I'm thrilled to death row in behind that at round Howard you can make good use of Gift Certificate said Jim. What's the restaurant name again? The hummingbird hummingbird way. So if you can make use of that. Slide into my. Dm's as well that's a great idea. Antonio third me for that although we are going to compare notes so that nobody you can't get three. One person cannot get three gifts thing. Don't come back with the mustache and for if someone does shave their head and wants to come back. I'm fine with that. Yeah I think like the dedication Mitzvah here. Please live in mobile or not. I mean like you're still giving you really do it. Just get it done. And where can people find you on the Internet? Oh Yeah I'm really easy to find on social media. It's really pretty much all at chef. Jim Smith and the restaurant is add the hummingbird way on all sorts of social media platforms.

Not only socially distant visit my addresses at Kirk Clark to seize on all of your meat. You're going to give it your actual address de six spoiler alert like lots of my instagram posts are tagged with my apartment complex and address so which of the five hundred doors am I so otherwise knocked on every single. You also want to be very careful. They may not be able to escape the room. Luckily that's the front door behind me and so we can all see if somebody sneaks while podcasting buying image. It's like it's like that movie. That takes place over skype. This on a podcast. Yeah we're going to see like seventeen to that during the isolation period who didn't we have turnpike John. What are your feelings days at a Mike Bloom type? I did like ten hours of podcast this week. People are tired of hearing my voice.

I'm like how did you notice? It's really alchemy. A really funny discussion about how. My parents are hyper competent.

Rob & Akiva Need a Podcast #47: The Royal Rumble

"Whoa we're the needle <hes> that's right. Robin akiva need a podcast. We are back for episode so number forty seven and there is anticipation in the air because today we are finally going to get to the one and that so many people have been waiting for the r. h. A. rumble and here's a man no stranger to rumbles a man <music> who has podcast all over the world whether it's about seinfeld n._f._l. Football olympic sports or or curb your enthusiasm. Please welcome the great kiva winokur akiva. How are you. I'm very pumped rob. I feel like this is one of our most anticipated l. episodes usually when the stakes are low. We go hi so when they go hi. I guess we go low. Yeah <hes> bound to disappoint this no question no because it's is our most is probably our most requested episode that people want the off the wheel for about eight months and we're going to give them what they wanted today. Okay so we're going to you. Throw it to a video of a royal rumble. The for the uninitiated the royal rumble is a a event a staple of wrestling where thirty wrestlers end up entering the ring and tried to eliminate each other by throwing each other other off the top rope every minute another person comes down and then the last person standing is the winner of the royal rumble. This is traditionally really it done in once a year in the w._w._e. In january's royal rumble yes usually the week between the conference championship games in the super bowl and football and in this simulation that was made by one of our listeners thirty rob akiva nita podcast personalities. He's in riot and rha personalities have been digitally created and entered into this simulation that we are going to watch for the first time i am live here today with video posted on youtube so if you are listening to the podcast and you hey i gotta see this because we're we're calling hauling it. We're like jerry. The king and jim ross yes exactly like that and with the oregon trail similar to two weeks ago the people who watch the video. I think it was even better than just listening to podcasts. I think maybe the video is the way to go here but okay so you can watch the video. That's going to be up on john. Rob has a website dot com. If you click on the post for the latest robin akiva need a podcast episode. The full podcast is not gonna be on video. Oh just the royal rumble we are taking the video that we got sent which is about thirty minutes long and then we'll be east stopping and discussing stuff that's going on and giving our commentary as it goes along akiva before we get to the rumble. How're you last week. We talked about the canadian shows our our trash and i think that we managed to avoid an international incident yeah. I don't think i don't think ken is going to invade the united states. No war was declared. People were pretty people you know wish that their favorite show was on or they got to talk about their show but i think in general people were excited about the three shows and everyone had nice things. Save the guests. I think people were pretty happy with last week. We did get a little. Hey i'm canadian. I don't watch any of these shows well. It's a big country. It's really big so it'd be hard to do. American shows are trash. What would you what would show what did he shows trash which shows best like exemplify the united states of america yeah. I don't think it'd be flattering happe- pig. I don't know like that's what i have no idea. I don't know it's a good question what it's always sunny in philadelphia. Maybe like that show that that's what the american show yeah yeah because it's like the worst of america. I don't know south park. Maybe i don't know is it's always sunny in philadelphia to america as trailer park boys is to canada. I think it's pretty similar or i think they're coming from the same cloth i think i'm what's the most american show i you know that's a good question. I think i feel like a lot currently currently early modern times i get what what is the most american show the big bang theory without have been the cause. It's also right. There's not really one show. That's uniting the nation anymore like the big thing like the big bang theory well we these shows that had like america or american in the title i if the american shows are trash it'd be three shows that have the word america and the title. I'm trying to think without american horror story yeah. It was love american style in the seventies. That was like a show that was on all right. Let's talk down this rabbit hole all right all right so akiva. What else do we need to set up before we start talking about the rumble couple of things first of all. This rumble has been on the wheel for like eight or nine months. The video was made many many many months ago so maybe the cast and crew would look little different the thirty members of the rumble. Maybe some people have become like major robin akiva characters recently but tasked with look different not like nobody's had like an extreme makeover since i think the people would most i mean maybe people like me have lost little hair but like yet just different people in the rumble. Possibly you know more people in the robin universe for sure in the last nine months okay. Why don't you don't take it personally if you are in our world but not in this blame brent our friend brent who made this video and he <hes> he'll take geico blame <hes> if you're not in it one more thing rob also yes after the rumble today at i guess at the beginning of the mailbag major robin mckeever nia podcast update. Oh i don't even know about here. I don't know about it major robin akiva okay so i'm excited about that. Will we get any user generated rumbles if people send them in <hes> of different a- different cast of characters. Would we watch that yeah john john get on it. Okay we'll watch okay. We'll rate your rumbles in the mailbox nicely okay so the keita's. Let me let me add also so this from so our brand from canada made this rumble he wanted ad by right not bread but not not brent wilmot different different breath canada. Yes it's a thirty wrestler. Mixed gender royal rumble we pick this game which was playstation two's smackdown vs raw because he was one of the only rumbles that allowed men versus women. We did not want sort of men and women violence but this is very slapsticky cartoony games so we didn't think it was a big deal right the modern games games. Don't allow it. He says the characteristics zone apologize apologies that any hardworking podcasters darn featured all characters are computer controlled and the entrance order is random. Okay all right sounds fair and of course that this is a simulation and wrestling. It's fake so anything that we're about to talk about or you. Watch here is fake fake so it's it's it could not really a more times negative ficticious rights and we had no control over any part of this <hes> and if memory serves. We had many reservations about even doing this. <hes> and people were like you. You're such babies. Just do it already. We we got peer pressure or like. Don't do it but also don't do it. Somebody said i know i don't think so but it was also twenty when we made a decision so don't don't hold us the twin nineteenth standard. We were being dragged about being like guys. I'm so tired of hearing about it. Just do the rumble already right well. I think i think the fact that the w._w. Game the modern game doesn't allow for men versus women men. We had to do two different rumbles which wasn't so appealing to us. Yeah i have maybe the it was. Let's see how this goes. Maybe it'd be super appeal and maybe we'll put it right back on the wheel yeah. We'll just be rumbling nonstop rumble ten weeks from now. We'll just do more rumbled. Do we need to say anything else. What should we do. Should we hit play and then we're going to talk about the first entrance yeah. I think that's what we should do all all right so if you are listening to the podcast and you wanna stop down and check out the video version. I'm going to hit record board right now and let me just do a little bit of a setup for the people watching the video or do you want to do. You want to be a ring announcer. You want to open this up now. Oh i think you're gonna hear all right who everybody and this is rob sister you know along with akiva winokur kiva. How how are you guys. First of all welcome to the showcase of the immortals. Yes we are here and we are recording video during recording of podcasts the people who are listening to already know how we are because we already talked about that in the opening banter. We are about to watch a thirty person royal rumble filled with the personalities of renew up and r. h. a. p. We're about to hit play and we have no idea what's going to happen. Yeah the cool thing but the rebels anyone could win. You know i guess if your purse. I assume you're personally rooting for yourself. You are in this rumble like the announcers often aren't row rumbles sure <hes> and and i'm in the bullet was so we're rooting for ourselves but you really wanna see yourself. Come out at the end because if you're there the beginning you're there's just so many opportunities for everyone to toss the out of the ring and you get tired so really the key to the rumbles. You want to be one of the last five or six people in the ring. That's getting called to the ring yes they. It goes one at a time for thirty people. Do you think there's a favourite going into the rumble. I don't know i don't i don't know if the person who made this brett brand from canada if he customized any any of the people other than what they look like he said he said he made everyone equal. Everybody is equal so we'll see. We'll see how this all goes if you're listening to the podcast cast version and you're getting foam oh about you're not going to be able to see the video. If you're watching you can go to rob has a website dot com slash rumbles to be able go directly to this video in case somebody listening a couple of weeks from now and then it's not sort of on the front page of robson. That rob has website that com slash rumble humble akiva. Are you ready all right. I'm gonna hit play and let's see let's see what happens and then tell me when to stop down. Do we have a safe word for when you wanna are pause. Oh that's a good question. We should have a pause words. Say pause every time do you have you have a good one. I woke we make pause the safe word all right fine fine. Okay all right so here. We go <music>. Let's get ready to rumble. Let's get ready for napa know all right here. We go all right. We're we're arena's this akiva. Two thousand four david bloomberg is coming to the ring being with his themes music where he put in theme music on the internet. That's pretty good. David bloomberg's music. What is bloomberg's what is bloomberg's nickname. What do you think i like this. We describe what bloomberg is wearing yeah. He is wearing yeah. I think it's sort of genes that you'll pass into the two thousand fourteen that same thing with john c. news where you've got sort of like a black t. shirt at almost like capri pants jeans as he's a entering the ring and white shoes alah like joe nemeth. We should also add the winner of the royal rumble. I think we said we put this on the wheel. We would call the winner live to tell them they won so well. Let's see who wins that. We can get the aware not have their phone number of money in the bank pass to join us to be on the podcast. That's true davis will david bloomberg i one in so i don't love his chances zero career around here and so so far. Let's see let's see who he s tussle with to start the show okay. Do we have david bloomberg nickname. I i think like that his <hes> in his smacktalk he would like sort of like and with like and this is why you lost like of it really talked the rules so maybe it was the the something about the the rule break or yeah the rule explainer. Maybe yeah the ruler and like the. I don't know the blue in the bloomberg ruler the rule book like okay all right. Let's see let's see who's entering the ring next. They say why you lost. It says on his t shirt i love jack. Bloomberg z. stands in a he's been working for the last eight months. The crowd is going nuts for david david bloomberg. I don't know what that move is. He's doing up there. <hes> he's gesturing to the crowd all right all right and the second in person comes down to the ring good guy. That's tyson apostles music. Yes here comes survivor veteran three three times a date survivor player ear tyson apostol as he's dancing his way down to the ring in a tank top and shorts and fedora. Oh tyson is really the feeling it as he drops to his knees to take in the moment fireworks explode behind tyson apostle. Yeah i have to say. This is exactly what tyson would wear w._w._e. Ring i love it here. He comes as the the ring. Here is tyson apostle. My niece spins as the crowd is loving it. Yeah could they not. Is there any bad blood between tyson and david bloomberg well. The david bloomberg. I'm trying to remember might've been a little hard on tyson in his write up of the heroes vs villains but i i think that he might not have been writing about survivor. During survivor blood vs water so then he didn't tyson and get to bask in the praise rays of david bloomberg on his winning season and you'll seems like the type of not really particularly care for nike three no tyson's finisher finisher. I think the the apostle is a good word to work with <hes>. I don't know i don't know what tyson i don't know what tyson's finisher or is nicknamed would be like the last apostle. Maybe less apostle yeah okay. Maybe we'll see it. Maybe we'll see it in the in the rumble. Come to play all right. Let's see what's up next all right our third entrant. Oh no it's just gonna be bloomberg versus tyson who and then there's an elbow oh and all the tyson's going for a slam of bloomberg. He's got them. He's carrying a baby yeah. What would you call that reverse reverse. I fired him over behind his back. Backdrop tyson's going into tomorrow rumbles. No one ever gets eliminated. People are coming in and hold on hold on. We've got some alright so flake rap recap. Amy is headed to ram in in an okay. We're not breaking from the action here. Here comes amy as david bloomberg is battling for his life. Tyson has went up to the turnbuckle and then then got david bloomberg over the top rope. Do we think is bloomberg out here. He i mean i it's people traditionally never get eliminated during introductions actions because the camera can only be one. That's usually how ya and it's usually a big accident. That probably makes vincent man very mad once a year where it it actually happened offscreen. I think bloomberg is going to survive this but maybe it will come to his rescue who knows okay all right so amy or the rap recap capper of our bachelor of bachelor in paradise bachelorette coverage. She is entrance number three. I feel like the final rose is is a great name for a finisher. That is a great name. That's a different one for haley so that is a great name for all right so i guess i feel bad stopping in the action but i don't know. I don't know if we're going to get to see all right. Let's see what let's all right. David bloomberg's holding on for his life right. Now and tyson is choking taking him as amy runs in and grabs tyson to save bloomberg. What is amy way or the other yeah. I know. It looks like some sort of a mask in business retire. She gave tyson roundhouse kick to the face as our fourth entrant is coming down good god. Oh that's stephen fish smacks music as david boomer gets tyson into the figure four leg lock here comes stevens back in a blazer with jeans. I believe as he enters the ring checks out that he'd be wearing formal wear rank. Do you think stephen will come to the aid of tyson who is a eh. Friend is former survivor cast mate yes. Do you think they made. An alliance sat at stevens bachelor party at disneyworld tyson wasn't invited either uh-huh so sorry sorry about that but yes stephen fishbach really that he might come in and continue to lay the smackdown on tyson or maybe might help to get him out of this figure four leg lock right now. David bloomberg has seen fish backs <hes> finishing move. What what is it going to be. I think it's the backbreaker the fish backbreaker that's good. That's good okay. Let's go and see how the rest of this is. Gonna a play out all right. Steve respect just laying back the smart move so the heat. Everyone gets him song. Amy's bloomberg's bloomberg's on yeah as has it looks like a suplexes. There's no love lost between stephen and tyson yes okay. Bloomberg is locked up with amy tyson is locked up with fish back as we had our fifth entrant out to the ring a good guy that's alley lashes music fan favourite upset the seer this early. There's gonna be a tough slot for her. <hes> legend yes or no okay. She's gonna you know she's gonna be. I feel like she's going to be <hes> raised a ruckus in the ring alley lascher. What would you say her her sort of ring name. I have her her punches. Move is lashing out <hes>. She said that her finishing move should be called the last lash which i think that's good that's good. Let's just check out. I wanna see a what her her uniform is here. In the ring wrestling attire as tyson gets over the top rope. I'm steven thinks he's gone back in so what is the only lasts. You're you're wearing. She looks like she's wearing some sort of like a green. What would you call that almost like an army fatigues yeah some sort of jacket and assuring earn pants she's comes immediately goes for david bloomberg. Yeah no yeah david bloomberg. She's not. She's not having any of that. Yeah i mean i want to <hes> showing why he lost. I feel like that allie. Lascher should be her gimmick should be the millennial judge and i feel like that's just she. She should be full judge regalia. Yes that's true but the melania judge didn't exist when this video for that is your. I think that would be her gimmick. Sample all right so let's see what happens here. Still nobody thrown thrown out of the ring yet. Alley lash drops david bloomberg to the ground break the business okay now and now she is a guy tyson down to the grounds. Okay bloomberg goes and drops a neon amy now stevens got her in some sort of a hold. It comes our sixth entrant. Oh here comes haley's wrong to the ring man as she runs down where partner k and and she's wearing a white tank top and then some sort of is that i can't tell us in a skirt a dress like a like a dress that go i don't know i can't describe women's pants looks like more of something that is does not have like an individual pant leg and now with the tag team team partners of avian haley strong in the ring than you would think that this is going to be trouble for everybody else trouble for everyone else unless the other four team up on them alasdair suggests that hayley's nickname wrestling nicknamed should be the underscore for twitter. I think it's good. It's like the undertaker. She's underscore. Okay okay so what's her. What's her gimmick being very nice. She's like bailey and the w she's very nice like no one wants to beat her up. Okay is there or a max of how many people can be in the ring in this game. Well we have sickle believe he said like a year ago when we when we talked about this that after the first six go very quickly quickly and then it slows down a little bit but we'll see okay so let's see what happens okay. Haley strong is now in the ring. She locks up with allie lascher and and stephen fishbach is on the side of the ring and so is allie but they both get back alien halley going after each other and i'll pile driver coming. Oh god a tombstone tomorrow yes last year is now going after amy as well yeah he's taking on both of the co host of the bachelor hap- right now. You're this leeming how he's a minute it menial stephen recycling tyson and now you see an alien is over the rope so is amy and bloomberg is trying to get haley l. e. strong out of the ring has not happened yet. Alessio joins in and now look this person out of the rumble and it's haley wrong the underscore score what happened there alley lascher just got incredible strength and went after amy and haley wean house from her two months to europe. She's she's really just crushing people you see now. There's much more after the first six right. There's much more time between you know. Nope new people coming out and now david bloomberg also hanging by a thread i entrance time verse entering into the ring as allie lascher is now fixing to get david bloomberg out next as stephen and tyson. If anybody was questioning whether or not they had a free rumble rumble alliance that they have been fighting each other for a while is something we know we all know. Pre-game alliances can be broken in just a matter but that's a good strategy. If it's it's fake fighting if they're just sort of like just like sort of like you know that's good ending the to wanna get each other outlet. Everyone leave them alone and not and eliminate themselves. That's actually really next level uh-huh. That's pretty good strategy there okay so we have six people into the ring. I guess let's see who number seven is coming coming out to the ring soon. Okay david bloomberg making his way back into the ring as amy haley has nine lives sorry i it's a battle the <hes> the alley versus amy right now. <hes> i know looks like almost robbery capper. Amy almost stephen fishbach out of the ring is literally on the ropes trouble. I dropped pick from allie last year david bloomberg who's all all right here comes another person ring good guide. That's shannon gates's music allow how shannon gates are first aussie entrant into the rumble. Yes the ring right now first of all shannon gates. I believe leave her. Her finishing move should be the gates of l. Yeah that's good. That's good okay. She's loaded up on bio strath. Presumably as she runs down to the ring she's wearing though it's like a red tank top and maybe some genes that serbians part of her wrestling attire and she's joining in on the fracas with tyson and aimee to you were trying to get stephen fish back out of the ring as allie lasser continues to pummel david bloomberg <hes> bloomberg's taking a beating taking a beating all right. Let's see what happens next okay. It's stephen fish back out of the ring. Did we lose stephen fish back that he yeah did he. In the while we were distracted with shannon gates <hes> vince mcmahon heads are gonna roll. I believe even fischbach. I no longer see his name on the screen screen. I think we lost people jump under and they and they hide like rousseff did they. Were they hide under the apron. Yeah that's a big stick that they do now where someone's hiding the whole time and then someone one and then they have another person to face but stevens name is off the boards. I'm pretty sure he's not in the ring. He must've just quit yeah. I think that amy must've knocked him out with along with tyson winder now we can so we're going to go back a little bit just to z. Shannon gates's entrance and see if we can figure out what happened to stephen fish back he was. We're going back to about four minutes and thirty seconds so steamed fish back his up at the top with tyson. He's he's like slapping tyson. Lapping noise tyson tyson aisin threw him out and then and then it was amy came in and through him ultimately out of the ring guests right when shannon gates came in aw back is holding on he's trying to get back in oh he does get back in it goes to throw amy but then amy kicks him and and she gets him over there and then a roundhouse kick and then right when shannon gates her tyson bush tyson. It's funny we were. It was literally a centimeter away from we were looking. We didn't notice okay. You really have to beg brent actually suggested like rock the left side and on the right side because there's a lot of action okay all right well for the next rumble. We'll try to slow things down. Okay all right so let's pick up where shannon gates just entered. The ring need a spotter for yes yes okay. Shannon gates locked up with david bloomberg. David bloomberg with a neck breaker on shannon gates tyson tosses amy out of the ring she gets back in as tyson is locked up with shannon green robes. I assume lions time yes golden. Finally blew blooberg has got what happened. Alley lashed forgotten finally finally got bloomberg out of the ring. Yeah okay david bloomberg had a good run ended up being the first one in one out yeah. If you want a couple of nations like if you're not gonna win the rumble you want to at least make a name for yourself. During the next year's round okay all right three seconds still somebody else is going to be joining us okay and eight as allie. Last year has a close call all right. Oh that's antonio meszaros music zig here. All right here is bizarre. Get up is unreal. Yes he's describe what antonio is wearing. I almost almost like he's. He looks like he's got a forty two pack of beer in his in his shirt right now yeah he's a big red sweater and some and some dark handsome yeah he looks like he's sort of like straight out of the big lebowski and he does look like a big basket character. I think slam tonio massaro is how one of these guys always changing nicknames. Yeah he's got a lot and he is in a long pants slacks. Grey slacks seems seems like not what you'd want to do and athletic endeavor in each person choose their own tire. Yeah i mean he's ready for business casual or the rumble okay okay and what is his finisher czar ozone. He takes them czar ozone like he just has to put him in the massaro zone yeah all right yeah. It's it's sort of a tap out type thing. It's not like a slam yet. Submission hold all right yeah so it looks like right now. Amy has tyson going over the top rope but let's see if she can get him out of the ring. Amy looks like she goes to a lot of sweet. Chin music from amy amy. Yes big kicker. Yeah okay so tyson is holding on and she's trying to shake him. As shannon gates also is on the outer side of the ring okay. Oh and she's got antonio over the top rope this the quickest elimination they make his way back in okay. Everybody is still in the ring right right now. As our next contender heads to the rain as allie lascher is on the ropes right now as her co host brian co so in is running to ringside. He's the bus driver is the is the bus bus driver and now here he is and much like when when we saw amy and haley together the second time where podcasts co-hosts are join each other in the rumble but i think there's no hope for chemistry between these two avian haley. I think we could reasonably think they'd work together. I think these two are just going to go off and fight right now okay. Let's see what happens now. As brian cohen has entered the ring. Are you keeping track of how many participants there have been so far. I think this number eight records to people who've been unlimited. We should be writing down right. The bloomberg was the third person elements that would nine okay fine. Yeah you're right. This is number nine. <hes> bob bryan cohen just unbanned me from the challenge pod timing perfect time yeah okay with his name yes left until our next to combatant comes to the ringside okay all right eight that alley and brian cohen immediately lockup yes and a off the tyrod tonio. Oh there's just some real violent. Brian ryan cohan off going out of the ring right out from allie lascher as she's trying to push him out. He makes his way back into the ring and now a drop kick from brian cohen. Oh we have somebody out of the ring who just went out tyson. Tyson is out. Oh tie all right. He had a long run. It's hard hard to really last more than like ten minutes and their ties he'll join stephen in the back and they commiserate over. They should have worked together more and believe it was amy who was the person who got got the final knockout blow on tyson. <hes> okay so tyson is out of the rumble. He's the fourth person as amy is not messing around. She's really come to play akiva yeah amy. She wasn't a favorite coming in. I think at this point she might be the favorite of everyone in the rent yeah. She's having a great one. I think think the ring out the the if you're looking at the video the ring out is like how much energy they have. I think right yeah. I don't know there's a blue level able in a ring out yellow level. I don't know what that is yeah okay. Let's see okay so antonio zarro. Oh sends amy into the corner turnbuckle as now amy is locked up with shannon gates. Brian cohen and allie shirk continue to be outage throats. Ask yeah years of pent up. Aggression is coming out here in the rumble as brian learned from watching. They just want to show where people fight all the time inc. Yeah okay here we go. We're going to somebody else. Come down to the ring as alessio dodd god. That's that's josh wiggle. Wiggle wiggle. Okay here comes josh winkler to the ring. What is josh winkler wearing. I can't even even tell us like a checkered black and white shirt maybe with like big puffy mustard and he's got like khaki shorts. There's going to rape her and tony antonio yeah so many duos really attacking each other. Yes okay no-holds-barred here in the royal rumble. No podcast friendships are safe as allie last year continues to work on brian cohen as shannon gates is gonna join her alley to try to get brian. Call l. went out. Cohen is out brian. Conan o'brien cone was the three of the women in the ring they teamed up and it was is amy who delivered the final drop kick to brian cohen who was holding on for dear life on the outer portion of the ring and ed now goodbye brian cohen amy's are like roman reigns the eliminator she gets rid of the week. I don't know if he's a finishing removed but he he like when he gets mad. He does wigging out where he just like hits you with a bunch of punches. Yes okay that would be good all right. Let's see as josh and antonio are locked up in the top of the ring and antonio is just hunches throws josh wigley over the top rope jesuits holding on we'll see if josh can make his way back into the ring he gives antonio. A shoulder gets back okay in a close call here for allie lascher. She's able to make her way back. In as amy gets slammed into the bottom corner tourne buckle now shannon gates josh josh wigley locked up as who's this. Oh that's music. Jeopardy's here comes uh-huh haymaker hattie and she wearing like a farmer had a much sure if i'm not sure brent knows what she looks like the g._p._s. wearing overalls and overall shorts and then long sleeved purple top underneath may. Maybe maybe embracing her her. Her northwestern used to be some sort of a farmer her montana. It's <hes> i think her. Finishing move is the new lease on life new lease on life okay yeah. I like that all right. Let's see what happens with now. Jessica lease in the ring okay and she goes right after amy shannon gates grabs her from going to get taken down for the jeopardy music possibility okay. Let's let's see as jessica. They think they got shannon gates out. I think that the gates of hell our head into the exit alley ascher was not messing around in this rumble. Jessica lease comes in and helps allie put the finishing touches on shannon gates and her rumble is done yeah yeah tough break for. I don't think there's ever been in australian rumble winner and it's not gonna happen this year. Yeah okay. Let's go back as the three women in the ring. We are locking up right now as josh antonio continue to be at each other's throats in the realm of really just going straight out to each other and l. the last year and a tony wants do look a lot like josh antonio okay <hes>. Let's see is oh a drop kick again from amy amy as allie lascher is standing by josh wiggins and jessica lisa. Oh is this the people's elbow coming from joshua. You know i totally was a big trouble. Rob intones trump tonio is on the outer portion of the apron themselves so here comes here comes jordan kayla ish these coming is he wearing a yankee uniform dwarf enke's uniform and i think that a baseball mitt he has on if why is he allowed to have a foreign object in the ring. I think the winner has put that they won royal rumble in their twitter bio. I know kayla twins. He will for sure. Do it even without sure. I sure okay what is jordan kayla's <music>. Now we have to root against them if he's wearing the full like not just the yankees uniform one thousand nine hundred thousand yankees uniform. It's like when george war babe ruth's uniform. Yes the strawberries. He's wearing babe ruth uniform. Go enter the rumble. My son's best friend's. No i hate the yankees they're the beginning hispanics my first grade sons so they came over to the house and they brought a yankee. I told them if they brought a yankees had throw it off the balcony <hes> but they brought over a they brought over a yankees book like babe ruth book and they said aren't you mad that i brought a babe ruth book and i said no the only good yankees. Oh boy okay all right louie. Let's go back to jordan kayless entering the rumble okay. I don't know what it's like a podcast clip. That's his insurance to akiva. Is he twenty to thirty two. It's thirty two hundred thirty two. I might be jordan taylor. I don't know who's the amy on the outer portion portion of the apron and she's sending jordan. Kayla ish she's got round. Roundhouse punches here comes alley. Lash urged ars. She's standing by catching her breath. I just saw amy go up in the air and come down jordan kayla. She got some sort of a move happening or is this taunting. The crowd ever gone more than six so if someone's got eliminated sui screens about to be completely full. It looked like that jessica lease had josh twitter on the ropes here for a second as amy misses a roundhouse kick to antonio. Amy and <music> alley are still locked up jordan kayla this dancing. Nobody's wrestling with him. I think it's a good strong with you comes amy. She's got kayla on the outer portion of the apron. She's choking him. He gets his way back into the race but there is there is no thirty two on the korean okay thirty two fans. I guess <hes> okay looks like wiggling and jessica lease. I froze in trouble yeah. They seem to be in good spirits last i i saw them but they are going at it and oh we just had a replay we miss the game missed it right now. Now let's go but it is no replay. It's just like sometimes like they get the smackdown in in law logos popping the logo and as it happened a amy has gone out of the rumble yeah she had a good run. She had a great run nothing to be ashamed of yeah. It's really hard to make it from one thirty. It's only been done like three times incredible ron on as josh wiggins is working on jessica lease right now as she is holding onto the outer portion of the ropes off but she's gonna get her way back into the ring. I liked it. We haven't come. We really have a shot row. Yeah i forgot about us. Tony who knows tonio throws jessica lease over the top rope but then forgets about her she gets back in our antonio given that yeah greatest josh yeah. Josh has has got alley lascher in a leg lock. Now just released takes over here comes good god. That's nicole. Sestina knows music. What's your theme song. I strongly did he think that i know i. It's my voice. I don't remember what holiday show five or. There's nothing if not eight years ago i mean this is you've been podcast thing. You've been pakistan game time for the record. My wife was a wrestler. She would not have earthy music. Be me saying that i might be j. Buyers related rights so all right. Nicole says it did not occur to me see that my wife would be hearing the rumble yeah okay. I think it's fitting. I think he made that feeling for sure. So what's her finishing move. Oh boy i didn't. I didn't really have a plan for nicole. I mean i think in general she's called. She's called the flop. Maybe it's maybe there's something flop related where she where she gets out for like a nurse thing. Could there be a nurse thing like ministers like final rights. I don't think she actually does that. That's technically not part of a nurse's job okay here she is. Let's let's see how this goes if she doesn't get to eliminate me then she's going to be severely disappointed. Did you get roberts nicholson all right. Josh wig ler is now when this song it'd be over jordan. Taylor goes on the outer portion of the rings rally lascher a back body drop for jessica least from joshua glare. People have a distinct looks 'cause i. I figure i feared we wouldn't know everyone is but it's very easy to tell everyone nicole real yeah. Would your wife get mad at you for a fake wrestling eliminated like if you knocked her out well. Let's just say i'm not going to tell her that she was in. What if she wins actually have to call right now. Sorry yeah okay. We'll see how that goes. There might be a real royal rumble at the house. As jordan kayla issues on the outer portion of the apron and wiggles bet to give them the kora gets thrown out of the rate travel that she was holding jessica leeson antonio now both pushing nicola. Oh and it's wanting undying i the fastest person to be eliminated and the whole rumble yes okay. That's probably for the best. Probably that's probably for the best. I mean she's she didn't wanna maybe you're anyway. She's famously anti this podcast. She had she was just achie- was against her will against her wishes here as antonio so and i guess alley or just lease teamed up to push in a call right out of the ring <hes> all right so the message from bryn says ring out is the energy so josh wiggins says the person to be looking at he's at zero energy right now okay. We'll take a look at what's going on. Josh is getting tired as allie lascher. It goes over the top rope and then works her way back in jessica lease takes a little break in the corner. Antonio is locked up with allie as jordan kayla rushes hanging on its back and he tries to get out allie lascher alleys in trouble. She's back in kayla in and out as tonio holding on for a second alaska's in trouble right now kayla's trying out. We'll either taken l. Okay back in hold on hold on was out all right so a lot going on right now. Just lease just went out of the rumble. Josh what happened happen or josh kiva what happened yeah thinks you just dangerously on the ropes for too long and she <hes> and she got eliminated yeah. It says she had a decent run. Yeah decent run for for jess. I would come with the amazing race music. I hope this doesn't get knocked off. You should because the jeopardy music is famous for getting kicked off youtube okay. Well hopefully that there's enough stuff going on yeah. That's true. It's pretty it's pretty faint. Now who's coming into the ring rob. This is as a leader is making her way down to ringside rights punisher okay i. What was the theme music. I couldn't hear it. I'm not sure it's not american. Ninja warrior is it. I don't know i don't know if there is an american ninja warrior themes off all right here comes lead the cat ears john. I ended up. I think so i thought she was wearing a mask but yeah he may have given her the cattier yeah. The best was david bloomberg tyson as they got the. Let's let's see. They sauntered into the ring. Yeah the first two well the first two always in the real royal book at the at the the long entrance star treatment yeah usually like two big stars and then not not in this one but i'm saying in two big stars and then it's like a couple of minor people usually says okay fodder leader joins in as antonio missouri. Laura is holding on for dear life right now. Amidst drop kick i think from leader as she and allie lockup for a second <hes> antonio university of michigan sort of willoughby an alliance there university of michigan and down goes massaro. The mazaar ozone is over. Yes antonio is out. It looked like that allie lascher and jordan kayla work together to push antonio out of the ring. Last year is going to set the record for a long time in a rumble. Yes she's still got decent energy to yeah. We're still sort of on on low. Yeah locked up with lita right now and we'll see we got another combatant coming down to the ring in a moment all right welcome as the bob barker erin rod roddy introduced breads who comes in and intrude greta session showboat the who the guy who made this brand. I'm giving him attended a ten. I didn't realize he put an audio inch show for all thirty people that's even though you wish that he would have used the amazing race theme song for just i'm over it but yeah brent deadly automatic edit nickname his finishing move obviously the staircase okay all right i would go with a girl by grow by is good. I i guess the staircase is like the rock cad the people's elbow and the rock bottom so he brings you. The girl by is like the actual like tossing you out of the ring. Okay all right so here comes brent walmart and let's see where he goes once he gets done getting. The crowd fired up up. He's in army fatigues in his army uniform fatigue. He goes at her terrorist kayla. I now pile driver from allie lacerda. Josh wigley who is is running on fumes fumes kayla's. I think broke his arm. Oh and now things are really heating up house. As aaron armstrong. Aka tasr makes his way down to the ring and now taryn and brent finally finally years and years of tension. You have a chance to have come to a royal rumble match yeah yeah attaran. I believe the famous for the robot shop. Maybe we'll get one to brent. Yes okay here we go. Let's see what happens now. As taryn comes in taryn his <hes> waiting for his moment he's locking up with his co host from american jewish. Area has a lot of allies in the ring right now. If you're not to be used ed saying lita taryn working on lita right now as she is on the outer portion of the apron and has gotten has eliminated eliminated out immediately going after he came in and made a beeline for lita and she is eliminated yeah yeah wow shocker yeah all right so leader had <hes> a little bit of a run run a little bit a little bit could couldn't at the university of michigan alliance but now we have taryn brennan. Let's see if that's really the story in the ring and josh sort of been on low for an hour at this point. Yes josh josh wigley. Somehow has managed to hang in there. Despite many close calls okay as brent gives him a shot ought to the midsection. Josh wigley is on the ground in the ring is jordan. Kayla is working on him repeated punches to the face for josh wiggle are are josh twitter going after taryn but taryn has been locked up and almost gets george george kayla and now working on josh regular joshua wiggle her boo gave him the knockout blow was that brent i was brent yeah think it was breads as taryn aaron was locking up with these ghoulish here for a moment josh wig ler finally out of the rumble yeah we we're gonna know when there's thirty people left. I guess when people stop coming mode yeah but somebody else is on their way in four seconds no. We're not there yet but we're over halfway brent is it has a little bit of a scare. He makes his way back. Good god that's kirk clark's music and now what is from you tell theme song all right mark down to the ring in a black fedora and like a cloak is he the undertaker yeah he could be the undertaker here. You may have just given undertaker. Stick okay so there is tabulated. We'll see what what he goes on to do. Now and i think kirk clark's also tap out move which is called the escape room. That's good all right. <hes> he goes to work on the jordan kayless. He's just watching the way to do resting as kurt kurt and jordan are locked up and taryn andbranch finally the matchup. Everybody wanted to save kirk. Clark came out with the he he came out with the undertaker and it's too much of a threat to look like the undertaker okay clark. I think has the record for now. He broke nicole's record occurred or was he in the ring for fifteen seconds not even not he was. He was a introduced next yeah. I was looking at taryn and brent locking coming up for a second and then next thing i know i cur clark was allie lascher the one to give him the knockout blow. I think so we're also the only four people in the ring a lot of times at this point the rumble. There's end eleven twelve people yeah okay. Let's see what happens as i last year is close to getting jordan. Kayla potentially knocked out as well and still still no rob or akiva. Let's see if we okay jordan. Kayla is close. Oh let's see i think gets you is eliminated by allie lascher who is really a credible rumble. Yeah yeah who knew okay okay all right so now with alli lascher taryn and brent in the ring here comes a key uncle t._v. and ah uniform the new york jets uniform said the nap theme song. Is that the new jets uniform. I can't imagine liz i. I think this was before it was invented but maybe okay all right <hes> uncle key what is what is your finishing move. I guess like wieland wheels wheels. I'm not sure something wheels okay and then. What is your name well. I guess maybe i'm maybe i'm wheels weena ker yeah and and i'm t._v. And and i don't know we away okay sure all right. Let's see i don't like my chances. All right akiva goes after taryn after and then brent joins in and a slam and then what's this was with that what was that movie that you just did to somebody or or <hes> we attaran brandt alley and akiva so yeah because we had lost weight lowering keilor's before allie last year has taryn on the outer portion of the ring and so here comes another another person to to to the ringside good god. That's my booms music. All right here comes mike bloom and i believe he's wearing a blue dress shirt of this year and brown pants not sure why bloom famous for the kick in the groin called blooming onion blooming onion okay good <hes> what's his wrestling name manhor mike yeah man hormone is pretty good. He's like the godfather in the in the one thousand nine. These sick was that he was a pimp. So this is <music>. The godfather think would not work in two thousand nine hundred roughly not okay. Let's see what happens all right. Mike riley last year has taryn <hes> <hes> outside of the ring working on trying to push him out taryn makes his way back into the ring as mike and akiva are locked up a neck breaker from mike blue monarchy vows that her and allie lash erskine tosses mike over the rope way. We hear the seinfeld seinfeld. Music comes elaine banish your comes elaine bennis down to the ring fry from i'm from the brand steel episode. Is that what she's from yeah. Thanks i is this. The brand yeah must've been okay. Calama hearing seinfeld music by who this be going to be kramer could be worst chester like what is this way way. We haven't seen chester chester. My my okay so here is elaine benes. Let's see how she wraps if she wins. Can we call julia. Louis dreyfuss yes. She was on bill simmons podcast. Why wouldn't you come on the same week. Probably doing the rounds okay. Did you have a movie to promote all right as she is. She doing the elaine dance. It's okay as she thinks she is. The little kick starts working on okay. Oh sorry invert my real number twenty six also he gave me my actual the number that was nice to research. This is like an early like third season elaine where she's wearing a sweater yet not very fashionable but she does. Let's have a little kicks which is season eight right right. Okay all right so here. It looks like taryn has a close call. As brent goes was over the top rope and works his way back in a lot of times people do the move where they grab onto topper open and come back right back into the ring bloom holds. There's there's one guy with a stick every year. Kofi kingston yeah schtick is like he gets thrown out of my out of the rumble. It looks like that attaran and elaine bennis push. Mike bloom very quick in and out for mike blew out for manhor. Mike yeah so wham bam thank you mike. We're very quick appearance in the rumble by mike bloom <hes> mike bloom shortest podcast appearance of all time. That's for sure okay all right. Let's let's see as another entrant is going to be joining us. Shortly as elaine bennis is on the outer portion of the apron and right now akiva andbranch are locked up rents over the rope but brown's gonna make his way back into the ring elaine's wearing seems very very not conducive for allie last year just gave a backbreaker to elaine benes as she's now gone alley last year attaran and elaine benes. Eh just worked together to take taryn out of the rumble. Tara gone move l._s._u. Famous seinfeld fan. I think she's not going to go. After elaine benes right now you would think so early last year and elaine benes have worked well together <hes> yeah much better alley lascher and brian cohen worked together in this rumble bowl <hes>. Let's see if they make the sea they lock up now. As <hes> you and brent are in the middle of going toe to toe right now uh-huh okay so they do lock up a punch to the face story. Oh good god. That's danny price ins music news af same. Yes yes daily bryson no real rap connection. He's as a dentist. So what would he is. What his sort of finishing movie would it be like a root canal. Why do you say he's a dentist. I thought i thought the dentist uh-huh he's not a dentist. No i always thought he was a dentist. He can't if you wanted to. I thought he was a dentist now now. He's definitely not ever told me he's a dentist. Maybe maybe that's like <hes> like a fake story. I told my wife on a podcast how i always thought uses them. Definitely not a dentist. Now what's his finishing move so akiva outing himself as a never listening to episode of <hes> new danny is not a dentist sell phillies something like the the hot soup bar dr midnight mountain dew. Those are the things that are famously things that danny would would like to do. They should be danny's bolthole. I think that that's okay another one of his signature things gone. You're not in yet. He really has no allies allies here. Dan doesn't really know anybody in the ring. Yeah it's been okay for a lane bennett so far but everyone sorta knows elaine yeah okay. I i see up on the screen. The number nine nine left does that include people that are around there or nine more introduction nine more. I never knew what that number was. Okay okay. I thought you'd like press nine left on this press press nine button on your controller xbox okay all right. Let's see where danny goes. Oh elaine ben is is all right. I'm happy about it would have been ridiculous if she won last year. Last year has eliminated. Would you say more than half of the combatants in the robot could be a record. They're always like oh. Kane has the record but roman reigns guy for the wreckage like eleven but she could go after that record. Are we sure that brand from canada isn't like a huge huge like did it twenty times until she won because it would take a lot of effort. I mean she's out in the music. Look at her energy. She's at full. Uh of do you think he made her like super powered. Maybe she thought she was a favourite going in or they also took care. Clark was a favourite and look at him. He was the first person okay all right. Aw alright brandt is holding on so is danny bryson. Akiva has been pretty decent so far forty just fitting me me and break range accused got an atomic drop from brent yeah alex shirt being nice to me okay until she punched me in the face all right good god here comes melissa deni the third member of the n._f._c. and she she may have just any wins yeah. We're gonna have to call up and explain what this podcast or not or not we don't have. She's throwing bryan out. Yes you may have just thrown danny bryson right out of the rain. Uh familiar as brands goes to work trying to knock alley lascher out of the ring okay blissett. Danny let me see what her with her. <hes> gimmick is okay. I have to give it up to brent from canada so far. All of our female podcasters have been very respectfully addressed. I was very concerned. That was one of were. I wanna see anybody come out and be scantily clad for the rumble rumble unless unless it was like you're you re yeah. That would be nice. I mean you still could come out like that but <hes> yeah unless specifically requested. I mean i don't think anyone did. I don't even think any of the male wrestlers have come out without a shirt on. Maybe that was the style in two thousand and four. I think everyone was wearing shirts. You know you had like the rock is probably gone on. Yeah you know wearing <hes> seen as a really wear a shirt. He wears just the joints yeah. I'm not sure okay all right so right now. We've got a kiva locked up with the t._h._e. Bryson as brent alley lascher our bread is trying to push out as most any worker way back into the ring and allie ali is back in everybody's in the rain not sure who else is not. I'm elliot besides you. Maybe liana could have some real supplies. We got somebody coming down to the ring. Oh god all right good. God no no we have entering coming out to the ring and the going by the name t. dob and it appears to be blue avatar person avatar person. I we probably specifically said don't put in but this is months ago right. He did not listen to us. Okay all right who famously has tweeted in like six weeks okay and so here comes a blue avatar. I really hope he doesn't win. I'll be very okay. Avatar guy is in the ring <hes> jumps over somebody the avatar guy pearce about seven feet tall also it's a problem he might win. He's just so much bigger than me. Akiva kiva is getting in trouble here from the n._f._c. as melissa and brent both give him some shots like who's this guy. I'm gonna kick him out. Last year's throws a kiva out up and now allie lasser realms and allie and brent are all sort of at the bottom corner of the ring and everyone has to team up and get out. It's like he's like the big show okay. All right here comes off the top rope danny bryson. This is very dangerous lands. Eh ah he lands. My leg is shattered. Visas jumped off the top rope and sat on you but akiva is rally finisher on melissa. Danny akiva has no energy left. Yes melissa. Danny takes him and throws them into the into the ropes. As brent is in trouble right now but meanwhile alley lash grabs danny bryson and buys brent some time to recuperate aw alley lascher and brent are still locked up very crowded in here. It seems like everyone's just totally gassed. Yeah a lot of people just running around aimlessly at this point okay. That's how it normally looks. Qatar guy sent alley lascher into the turnbuckle. Cave is out the avatar talk. Avatar avatar guy just kicked akiva out of the ring unceremoniously. I'll go back to announcing. I okay i didn't have. I hopes of winning okay akiva. How does it feel that a blue avatar guy my size and kicked you out of the ring. He's just so much bigger than me. Why everyone everyone is like so evenly proportioned in this guy just enormous. Maybe a mistake on the part of rent g think that it it was because of all of your many takes talking about how avatar is trash. I there's definitely like oh leading job loss. Yes it's possible all right. Let's see what happens next. If we get another person out to the ring so we are going to aw still seven people left yeah. We're looking for number twenty four th next. We've got melissa danny leapfrogging a couple of the combatants as somebody who counts coming in ten seconds. Melissa is locked up with the avatar guy yeah. If you're listening to get a jason listen lascher denny avatar brent as alessio gives a neck breaker to any braces slasher just went out as i'm nick danza comes out to the rain and let's just knock down for a moment eulogize alley last year one of the great one one of the great rumbles of all time from lascher. Yes who was it that got. The final blow on her was melissa. Danny was the appetite danny. I thought it was mostly danny but it could be okay here. Let's let's go back a couple of seconds just just just to see a just to see a replay of what happened. They are with eyelash there. She is locked up with danny bryson. Danny braschi a neck breaker on danny bryson but then here comes melissa danny and oh it was the avatar guy gutter cutter too yeah oh man this could be a problem yeah really. It's a real rumble. Everyone's got a team up against them or he's going to win. Okay avatar guy not dob has been the villain of the rumble to this point fan favorite guy a- danza was on survivor australia podcast both both from australian survivor season one and then podcast about the next couple of seasons of australian survivor before retiring from podcasting yeah yeah but but but retiring before this was made apparently yes i think he was retired beforehand but maybe a favor a big fan. Maybe maybe a favorite of brian <hes> brent from canada who has had our second australian combatant enter the ring nick either danza what what is what's his gimmick mic. I really don't know it's probably just you know that w- the w._w._e. Famous for being culturally sensitive probably really it's not just like the aussie right now. I know it happens to be. There's a lot of these now okay. There's like twenty of them. Yeah all right so here comes nick i dance <hes> as he is coming in with his signature baseball cap and a red shirt looking and <hes> i think women i think they're all these named iconic so maybe he is a is a third of the onyx enza okay all right. Oh the ads the guy did did brent. Take him out. Yeah breadth took him out. Thank you for your service. There we go here we go. Let's just see what happened there air with the avatar guy. It looks like almost like nothing happened to them. Like like branches like came over knows. It was a melissa danielle melissa. Danny's you really got to watch out for most of them. Yeah justice for allie justice for akiva okay yes. Thank you all right. Thank you melissa so now. Now we have it is just danny. Melissa brent and nick danza in the rain right now down to just four. You're still danny. Bryson is goes over the rope. Top rope comes right-back sodas nikei danza. Everybody's in one corner of the ring right now most of the danny working on nick danza now all right good god here comes jessica lewis. Why does she come out to rock. You like a hurricane showed rock yeah what the rock yeah and and i was told her nickname is the black rock a black all right so here comes more. That's our finishing. Jessica lewis long after david bloomberg originally entered and was eliminated. Yes all right should be wearing like a theme a shirt promoting our own podcast. That'd be good all right. Here's jessica lewis us. As most danny goes a right after her throws her over the top rope and she comes right back in melissa danny flying around the ring right now and then daddy bryson just took down nick danza day prices feeling to oh. Oh and here comes albouy yours truly. Let's see what this looks like now. Okay now. What is that it is <hes> what the boy what's bret hart's finisher sharp shooter the the sharp you have you have melissa danny and a sharp s instantly you're in plaid with. I think jeans but you don't normally wear jeans. Yes not not too often. It's hot in here but okay. I'm looking in good shape here in the rumble all right yeah you ever not wear pants when your podcast thing because you're not really on me that as opposed to shorts or as opposed to who <hes> like in my underwear. I guess both never yet done a podcast. <hes> you only underwear and i often wearing shorts okay fine. I have podcast in jeans. <hes> probably off yeah okay. Let's get back to the action. Aw aw as jessica lewis did not nick danza danza. I think got the knockout shot on her. She is out of the rumble almost exactly as she was in yeah most any really favoring her leg also she. She's low on energy could soon most of the danny now. She looks like she is yeah. No she's got a lot of energy in the ring. She looks brent is very brent's running on fumes. Hume's we also can't see the bottom people's energy. I don't know if you okay all right so brent is out brenton filed very long run for brent good job by a long run long run for brands. He is out four left with ford ago. Okay another submission move for melissa danny but she finally elbows me in the midsection nick and bryson going after each other. That's been a good matchup who is god. That's eric. Eric stein's music. Oh there we go inside america's player. He's wearing in a very patriotic top of the blue top with white stars and then red white striped pants yeah. I think that that is a great schtick. America's wrestler is a great image. Somebody should have it. I mean his medal because the modern day kurt angle as now looks like a uh. I'm taking on nick. Danza near comes eric stein sneaking up behind me as melissa. Danny is locking up with danny bryson. Okay as nick i <hes> the summer of stein podcast pair teams up to push nick. Danza ends up out of the ring. Okay bye bye neck not that long of a run for nikai danza all right. We've got rob versus eric and danny bryson versus melissa danny. Three people left to come out yeah. Oh rob during the ropes or the twenty eighth person comes in all right. Here's comes chester komo consumer chester. Let's see what he's just uh-huh wearing cloud class. Why is he a clown. Oh boy we should clown i think so why else would his hair be blue red green though like rainbow fedora. Why is he a clown. I don't know a lot of color is that his hair only as one and it's not that the silver himself as chester number the easy just coming coming back from a club boy donaldson thirty two fans this week you all right. Let's see what happens as chester is now in the harangue going alright. He's locking eric stein. It's crazy joe. I guess i don't know i think his finishing move is like the spreadsheet delete all right now. I've got chester up over my head and i probably throw him out lose ten pounds. Oh terrible terrible job my chest. They're only just picked chester right up over my head and we having don't even win this thing he'd be insufferable and now we haven't seen one person thrown out of the ring light that through the south then even those awesome. That's amazing rob. There's a real threat to win now. We're four people in the ring bryson stein most danny the only woman right now to people i soon at least one is going to be a woman because i think it's an even men and women right now. We're a little higher okay all right. We've got melissa. Danny snuck up on me back then. She's locked up eric stein right now coming good guy that's price size as musical circle s. coming in late in the rummell with one person left to come out and now all has a great shot to win this thing yeah. He's he's fully rested while people like rice in a melissa been in there for a long time. I also gotta think someone who just says like if there's any were nap only people out there probably very confused at all yeah yeah that'd probably you build join us at the mailbag all right and we have the all time highly highly awaited bryce bryson showdown. Oh yes people been talking about this. What would happen if they got in the room. People call mike francesa all the time and say what would happen with bryce first bryson aisin if brazen bryson then game over okay all right it would be the new york giants hung out with the san francisco assist giants right rice in and out out of the ring right off the bat. I know he's spinning around like a break dance move. Yes <hes> has eric stein rives pain on the ground. Who's gonna be the thirtieth person with the thirtieth drawing the rumble here comes leeann boris coming down into the ring and what what is gonna wearing. Liana is in like a white gown. I think as a scientist advocacy's a scientist or maybe ak- i think that's what it is. Okay all right and this is our final six. Yeah the finals with the winner will be we honor bryce bryson melissa danny eric stein or you yeah wow all right very solid final six six. Let's see what happens all right. Bryce isaiah throws eric stein out of the ring but eric is holding on on the outer portion of the apron but now we've got two on one one and eric stein is out there eric stein who who threw her out loose yeah melissa danny and bryce isaiah work to knock eric eric stein out of the ring and then there were five people left in the twenty nineteen rene royal rumble. Oh oh boy okay melissa sends bryce to the ropes and now he just runs around. Everybody else is up at the top half of the ring. Here comes liana on a she's gonna match-up with bryce. Isaiah bryce in is the most tired yes ready. Bryson's got me on the outer portion of the ring and oh down goes rob danny bryce in a final four usually. There's a moment in the royal rumble rob where the final four people in this case liana bryce bryson melissa sort standing four corners and people sort of take in like some people are going to win. Let's see if that happens. Let's see if that happens. You know i had one great moment where i tossed ost chester out of the ring playing that i can gift that for us honestly because they'll be replaying that moment. The royal rumbles forever. That's all time moment. Uh-huh knows an alzheimer so i'm happy about one moment was in if mirror you know we would've never heard the end of it. Okay all right so danny bryson brice liana boris melissa danny who will be the royal rumble champion and bryce bryce. This is as the favorite because he has the most energy bryce isaiah eight out of the ring. Danny bryson flips melissa. Danny over sends bryce into the ropes liana locking up with oh. Oh is that a like a suplex on bryce some sort of reverse suplex and a real dance from lana. The women are really giving it to the men right. Okay bryce just rock bottom. Okay the throws bryce over the rope. <hes> <hes> bryce gets back in oh ya chin music from bryce. Melissa did not knowing that sort of thing danny bryson melissa danny are locked up. Liana sends danny bryce in over the rope. It comes right back in aw danny goes to grab liana. Mrs needed the midsection for liana and it looks like most danny's got bryce in some sort of a submission hold prices. He's writhing in pain on the ground but he's also got endless energy. He is ring has not gone below melissa. Danny was locking up with daybreak. Oh oh rice is now israel. Eliana liana is in trouble right now. Chris yeah melissa. What's the daddy she stands by. Melissa didn't just throw leon out she was she. Lets hers an ally yeah. I i think you're right. I don't do this to my ally. Leon has got a chokehold now. Liana is locked back up with danny bryson. The two women are are just totally running on empty and so's bryson this at brize. This bryson's battled to lose now. Dan bryson goes to work on the knee of melissa danny as bryce isaiah locks up with liana flips her over and now one for danny bryson and now rice me and tan yeah danny bringing the pain on liana bryson goes to toss most danny out of the ring she gets back in and and bryce isaiah flips danny bryson over the rope but he gets back in liana smacks bryce zeh awhile he's working on the bryson and power girl power glove good god almighty no regard for human life the power mom for leon bryce isaiah. I don't know what bryson's doing in the corner but he's got recuperating. Yeah rest is now in their corners melissa if they know what's good for them liana embrace and bryson all over the rope and then right back yet as oh you news coming brady bryce is gone as bryson's eo was again doing more break dancing spinning around on the on the ground on his head yeah alright just three people laughed bryce liana on melissa alright. Let's see if melissa and liana who worked closely together covering big brother harsh a._p. If they will team up against bryce isaiah as our final three liana tosses bryce over the top rope. It's not gonna not not gonna work. He's holding is but now the women's gone below issue. Preclusion rice's and big trice is as god. That's a stunner. Oh my god and other that happened it was two on one they got it was just like i said that they liana and melissa the side. One of them was going to win the royal rumble and they push bryson's ahah out of the ring and now liana or melissa danny any will be the royal rumble champion unbelievable. I mean i'd say in the history of you know. There's been like thirty five royal rumbles rob. Maybe one of the most shocking moments and bryce was like a total total lock in the final three there he just had all the energy and great teamwork by melissa and leon attack to knock him out keith. Who's got this. I don't know i mean <hes> you know. The fans like liana is a long time robin kiva collaborator. Melissa doesn't know who i am but melissa's got more energy here. I feel like malaysia. Elena is doesn't know where an app is for sure yeah but she she's got more energy but it didn't really work for bryce. I feel like we gotta <hes>. She's got to wear down till the point where they both get gas in. Just you know who's been in the ring longer. Melissa was thirty s chico oh to be the thirtieth person. It's really unfair melissa. She earned it has been in the ring for a bit. I feel that she's been in the ring since like maybe the midway point yeah. I probably later probably around like yeah you're but she's been in the ring for a minute and she. I believe you were still there. Should the avatar guy. I was was there elaine. I think was a real shocker that the king cake baby didn't make an appearance might have into ours all right. Let's yeah this plays out. Melissa verses liana and melissa throws over the top rope and she's working on trying to push. There's some big trouble good god that was melissa. Daddy was the treadmill. That's her move. Oh she walks on the treadmill. Oh she's trying yes. She is now taking it all in as the winner of her adoring fans as the tunes of will from america grace the auditorium melissa deni is the winner a big week for melissa danny coming off her appearance talking to reality steve.

I think it was a lot of fun. Okay yeah. I had a lot of fun to hope everybody else did in video and so we have anything else do before we go to the mailbox. No let's let's go to the mailbag.

Thanks for watching and let's do the mail bag <music> all right akiva and let's bring in our guest for the mailbag this week. Who's who's joining us. It's our vince mcmahon. Dan robbed yes brent from canada. I think he's from canada. We've been saying time a brand the royal rumble creator he did an amazing job put in thirty theme songs and made everyone's attire look real life. You know like several elise hu. It's brand. Yes brandt rant. Yes thank you how are you. I'm doing swell right lovely day happy to be here good. Tell us a little bit about yourself a lot about you other than you make. Royal rumbles for run-up yeah so i am a long time listener since talk about the one world era okay so big fan personally i i live in edmonton alberta so in other canadian dan. I work for the federal government i. I don't know how much more you you want from me. But can you tell us how the canadian government works. I don't know if i could even do as good a job as came acted the other day but <hes> i did love rob your how how blown your mind was by the queen's involvement and i didn't know i had no idea did you cue. I did know it but it is. He's still crazy. Even if you do know it it's kind of and do you know what we call her here. Queen mother the queen of canada queen of canada. That's great yeah yeah brent you mentioned kirsten and i always mcqueen of canada yeah we we down the curse and the queen we thought <hes> <hes> you could apologize some of our friends who are not in the royal rumble okay so i'm going to say their name and you're gonna issue them. An apology okay advocate so i apologize curse stands out there kirsten mcginnis on the podcast multiple times not in the royal rumble sam sorry so i am sorry. I just learned today. She's in calgary. So what do you mean. It say you sorry be you up. She's close enough that you really have to apologize so i think it should be established that this was made like six months ago or something and you know she's real rising star in the community so yeah <hes> you know if this was done today. Maybe i could've taken out. I don't know elaine ben. This year would not have been hurt. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. I felt like a felt like the rumble needed some jobbers <hes> <hes> so. What can you say you you saying on. This secret brent for six seven eight months yeah that melissa danny any whose name has never been mentioned on our podcast. Once is is the champion. Have you had any back channel discussions with any. No i haven't i ah i was tickled by that as well. It just seemed like a sort of random and i don't know like the whole rumble. We'll just very unpredictable <hes> she i'm sure she she's going to be gracious winner and yeah you know where her crown with luther fried <hes> mhm but yeah you know i had done a few test rounds if you practice runs of the rumble and i had to go back and tweak a few things so i actually have seen a few different winners exciting about the timeline wellesz one yeah i we we can could you tell us like some of the problems that you encounter <hes> well. I can talk about the the main problem. I encountered was <hes>. I originally actually wanted to do this rumble in a newer w._w._e. Game and that's what i had pitched <hes> but then when i when it got accepted in added to the wheel wheel and i started working on it i i realized that women were not <hes> you couldn't put a woman wrestler into a royal rumble in this game yeah yeah i get with the times w._w._e. It's about it's about time to let women into the royal in the room with the man but not even on their own even rumble in real life rob. They've had one for a couple of years now but in in not in the game so the best coulda done as maybe the women's ladder match or something on the side but i really did think that the best version of the idea was one that included all of the are hap- legends engines so i the first trouble was just finding a game that would allow men and women to compete together once i found <hes> this was a game. I played back back in the day on playstation two. I remember women and men being able to rumble together. So <hes> mhm once i found that game and started putting the characters together it went pretty smoothly from there i realized after after making the rob character just as a test <hes> how funny these people look like these cartoonish caricatures of these personalities that i that. I know you know so well so yeah. That was the first hurdle to overcome yeah from there. <hes> it was pretty slow going just creating all these characters <hes> you know some of them came together really quickly in in very immediately resembled the people who say they were supposed to <hes> you know like stephen fischbach as soon as i got the glasses on on that model it was like wow that's that's him others. I would say struggle so you mentioned jessica li like she was one who i just couldn't get right as far as making it look like the person you by the rights to the jeopardy theme song because if not also use. You may have a problem with us just f. y. Yeah you might have a few copyright strikes on your hands. It is also a lot of other stuff going on but they're just like the most famous thing on youtube for taking them all right more apologies brand. You have to give you all the names as you'll give one blanket apology puja scott saint-pierre a._j. Mass jordan par angie cons and we fox and angel bloom taylor cotter jenny autumn america caskey <music> dominic colin will america showed up tim d._j. Oakland apologize to all those people that they were not in the rumble quiz. Oh boy i i really stand by the point where apologizing to domin colin if the politics every single person in the world everyone in the world i mean it was just this was the list. The list started from our friend of mine. Dr man apologized to bill simmons. They'll say well. Bill simmons would have been fun person to have on the rumble. I'd we thought of it what it rob. What the other twenty nine people in the rumble at unionized what would he have done. I don't know i let me say this. I know kiva has has been very quick to you. Set me up as the fall guy yes four the selection. Don't under the bus for anything well. I have to slightly but it also bail us both out. If i say this s. akiva <unk> he did send me a list of thirty names. He thought should be in the rumble and my was it was a man does is less those mandala okay so my my list ended up being twenty five out of those thirty so we're pretty much on the same page. Were did a good job. We're just and and the good thing is nobody knows who those five people were so good point good point so yeah like all all the dozens of people who feel left out at least you had a kiva on your side title yeah she's. I'm most afraid of yes within driving distance. You could come hunch me in the face. Yeah yeah okay so brent who were some of the other winners. Who else did you see. When the fishes rumble nap multi-diverse the greatest thing i ever saw was rob semester nino winning the royal rumble how and celebrating in the ring just like a boy on christmas morning running around jumping on the turn buckles and end like if if i could have used that rumble there was a few changes i had to make yes. I would've loved the the controversial firestorm in the the accusation. Yes free you save the video of that. I do have that okay. Maybe could get the the video of my of what it would look like yeah and i hope that becomes a trending gif on twitter. Our favorite thing that needs to be gift is rob tossing chester out of the ring but like thirty feet in the air like the ultimate warrior used to do like drop a guy in the ring instead. I dislike through chester over my head out of the ring. That absolutely cracked me up with a sack of potatoes. They got so much airtime who knows what he was doing all right so break apologies the cursed in matla gory and everybody rob what else he saw the multi verse. What else did you see. What else have we've seen. The multiples doctor strange right yeah so another another one i really liked was <hes> nicole's nicole's performance in in one of the chest rumbles. She did <hes> quite poorly. In the in the actual one didn't really make a big splash but there was one where she just absolutely dominated she. She must have thrown fifteen people out of the ring. <hes> she acts the fisher and then there was the the assessor neo face off in the ring. Finally that would have been a moment yeah. We didn't get that yeah yeah. We were robbed of that <hes>. I'm but i thought the the the one we ended up going with the final rumble had some some interesting clashes of of friends and co host. I don't think it could have gone much better. Okay all right now. Kiva teas that he had a big announcement earlier in the show all right so yeah so let's get into the big announcement before the mail bag so everyone who is if you're like. I guess if you're if you're standing opposite down if you're driving your car pull over if if your chest they're like put your spreadsheet on hold for second like your taylor cotter have luke wake up do your if your claire sup runnings. Don't get hit by a car right anyway. There is a very important baby in their nap university cake baby the king cake baby. We famously stand our favorite. It's really the most important thing in our reliance. I didn't even mention that i had made a king cake baby. Oh yeah what happened. We did discuss that. During the podcast. There was no king cake. They've been the rumble. We're kind of expecting the king cake baby instead that have a lane or the blue avatar that we want to talk about well. The king cake baby you did suggest i include and i started working on on one and then you emailed emailed me shortly after saying don't do the king cake baby. We're saving that for <hes> stands versus ops. Yes that was one less. You know you could have not hurt. Matlin corey's feeling him in acre something who made one. We thought you couldn't make an anatomically correct correct king cake baby. That's what we did have to be anatomically correct baby not like i'm saying like oh you know. That was the poor use of ways. I think that something that looks like the king cake okay. Can you make all kinds of freakish body shapes. <hes> i also had a leprechaun. Oh they'd up on a ah. I actually ended up taking some of these fictional people for yeah podcasters well. Maybe that should be if this goes on on the a sequel mechanism. Maybe that's what it should be of the sort of like more of those types of people filling the as opposed to real people because that's like that any of the things that could have gone wrong with this has to do with real people and how they feel as opposed to things like the king cake baby and the leprechaun yeah procon and i think you could fill that out kris terms well yeah kevin costner courteous. There's no chris all right fine so kim cake baby we stand but there was another baby in their nap universe yes oh oh we we famously got together with a friend jennifer moss and and married couple of corey and katie and they. I said hey come. We're having a boy name our bait and we didn't episode and we named the baby one of our most popular episodes so i'm pleased to tell you the baby this week was born. Baby rowen world say hello to baby everett cory every story yep. We were duped rob. We were scanned. We got ditched. I we got ditched that the baby naming alter. There's no rohan was ever it on our list everett no everett if you remember from the podcast during the podcast. She said she had already picked as middle name which we didn't know till after we named row inches rohan everett last name. It's a minor yeah <hes> but yeah she said it'd be rolling everett and then i saw on facebook friends with the dad and i saw oo baby was born. I knew the baby was due this week. Yeah and i said oh this exciting and then i saw facebook post and it said congrats baby. Everett is here a little early and i of course do what you do. When you hear facebook friends baby you email them everett with five have question marks yes i say congrats also and he and he emailed me back and he said basically he knew he said he basically. I knew that he he said like all. I knew that you know you're gonna find out and i was nervous for your reaction crazy not yeah. He said he said i was nervous about the community's reaction don't worry in the community on behalf of the community. Yes yes i am. I'm floored. I am stunned by this news. This is a bombshell yeah. No i what i saw. I said oh i'm going to rob. I said no. It'd be better if i told uh-huh so here's his email he said corey the dad said. Do you share the rats. Yeah okay aren't congrats ever. He said thanks. I knew i was gonna hear from new infant. That's i've been nervous l._l. By the way he did say was gonna come with minnesota so we should have known something was yeah income with excuse to afraid we'd just play my wife. She does what she wants. I tried to tell her at a minimum that row and should've been the middle name guess we should've named it right after right right before he came out so she wouldn't have had time to change your mind and i said what's the middle name 'cause. They didn't write in the facebook said she decided she wanted to cuss sound. She settled on my name corey. I feel i feel like it's not like we beg them to name the baby yeah like hey. We need a baby the navy they emailed us d._m. Emme and they said hey we don't have a baby name. Our baby and we're like okay and then we went into it like you don't have to. I don't know no. We're using the name its final. It's locked locked in entrepreneur sent akiva. Did you tell jennifer the baby name expert. I couldn't bring myself to tell her because she thought she's named like fifty thousand babies really really. She's probably only named forty nine thousand nine hundred nine. I'm going to tell her but i also didn't want to pause prize till i told you i wonder if it was because on big brother this season that i saw aw that one of the people that were on the show nick has been walking around the house with a shirt that said rowen and maybe they didn't want anything to be associated with nick from from big brother twenty one. I don't think they watched that show. I'm not sure okay all right well then. I guess you now so like we have a list of enemy. Enemy is called yeah. Is this baby now our enemy no we're going to be enemies with a baby. You could be enemies with the baby all right now now. What about no mom the mom our enemy deo us something that they should thing rowen yeah you you think they should get a dog like they have four kids. They can't get the least they could do is get in name it ruin. I agree if they name a dogra people said like after we named the baby people said you know like hey could you name our dog and i said well we already named the baby so it's sort of a step down the name of dog even though famously dog told so many people we named the baby i literally when someone says what's your podcast. They say like you know. We do random things. There's a wheel blah blah blah. We named the baby. We set our listeners up on blind dates like now. We can't even say we named the baby anymore. Even if they had middle name would have been mad happen could be the kids nickname like the kid's real name is everett. It like like boomer. Assassin's real name is norman. The you know yeah is this is this kid gunners name real name into gun. I don't know but but yeah norman everyone calls it unless you're being mean to me boomer so yeah. Can you call the baby row and even though it's not his name. Can they have another kid in monroe in. We need to hear like there. I was thinking if we should call them today but i think maybe they just did this for the cloud. I don't wanna have them back on like they already got. You know what i mean. They already used us once. They get on the podcast yeah. This is sad story and i know i've been i've been sitting on this for like six days. Wow it's it's shock okay brian. What's your reaction ema baby. I'm <unk> stunned right now. Canadian do this right now. It would be illegal. I'll name whatever you want just yeah. I'll name something ruin for you will you. Will you have a baby will you. Will you father a child for us. Absolutely okay whatever you guys need the name row and now i'm scenario i mr bean <unk> very yeah. It will jennifer robin really never named the baby. It was really jennifer's name. That was rejected. Yeah i like rob. What were you championing again. Ah i forget i forget eric. Tomlinson did not survive. The weekend did not make the jets. Somebody said he's started like twenty nine games the last three years. I'm like oh yeah. That's why they haven't won even sick yeah so in any season alright alright so that's that's what we ought get back i. I didn't want to start the podcast that news because we wanted to start on the on the high note but obviously that's sad the news we have to. We have to make it back up. We have to name something i did say. I tweeted this week about how i have a facebook friend who i've got like four thousand akiva yeah no there wasn't the whole tweet was. I thank you bring hang on. I said this lady on facebook friends with posted. I'd really great first date tonight and nine months later. She had a baby and in a row anyway she posted. It's been ten years today and she's still with this guy. They had two more kids and she's probably the happiest person on my facebook feed so maybe if you weren't three on life tonight. Go out and have a baby with a stranger okay so if any our listeners are listening if they took our advice. They wanna do it this long weekend. There's something and they happen to have a boy. You know thing thing about roman. We're just looking for a row at this point. I think he's saying if they want to have a kid. Well brent just said he would father a child. That's true and ladies out there. We could send you up with brent. We know he's good at putting songs into a brentwood province. Are you in alberta alberta. Will you intermarry will you will you date eight out of province i would i would prefer that the queen after sign off on that the governor general has it has to kiss the bride okay all right all right. Let's let's get to the mailbox job. Is that of armament out out of our math. I think he's doing okay. It's like we just had. We just brush her teeth now. We need some orange juice okay. Let's get to the right gets in the mail back. Mountain mountain rene moore alright akiva. What do you got well. I think this is sort of an emergency entrance but like in terms of names what what if we give you or one of our listeners like a lifelong nickname. <hes> what if like are you happy with your nicknames like sethi rob's either either up that sucks like are you looking for a new nickname because if you're not we'd find a new nickname. I thought i could always use it. I don't feel like i have a good one. What if we did like a nickname bracket. Worry put like sixty four nicknames in a bracket and we picked out and then that was your name for the you know you tried out for the next year forever yeah and if you're not interested we could get things the they don't stick if it's not natural you almost feel like i should not get a vote. No you don't get a vote. We'll have other people who brent do you have a nickname. I don't have a nickname and i think some people just aren't nicknamed people and i. I think i'm one of them and i think rob is one of them to like danny any on the news af he didn't like nicktator brew. Danny's not a dentist. Is this not as far as i know okay yeah. We're debating <hes>. You're not nicknamed. I i've i've a lot of nicknames brandt roy wheels heave uncle kiva <hes> yeah it works for you but yeah i remember yeah. They tried had to give the city of toronto a nickname when i was living there and they had a contest and then the winner nobody ever called the city that even one time <hes> uh-huh well that came quite naturally <hes> <hes> and it stick those things things. You can't have a voter contest for them because if you have to force it nickname. It's a chore all right. If there's a listener who promises mrs using the name then we would do it unless you want unless you wanna be the guinea pig rob. I'm okay with it. I feel like it's only like eighty percent of the way there. I feel like ah okay come up with like let's give robin nickname and then i feel like the bracket is sort of like. We've done that a lot of that so i. I don't know necessarily what it is. Okay all right so people could wheel waiting room. Yeah okay fine art. Hassiba first-time emailer writes in and says his ideas called robin akiva kiva go off line yeah my for the wheels that robin capable stay away from any use social media or news media for twenty four hours and then after the twenty four hours you both come together and look at twitter's trending topics and guess what might have happened that caused the trending then have a brief discussion about the topics. We could include that go to c._n._n. Dot com or new york times or something well so you already do that that correct. I do that every friday night yeah so in this scenario i would also do that. No social media no news. I just hey how why would work and then potentially like not know anything that was going on the day. You were like taking your kids to the zoo or something anyway anyway. You like. You're not working that day. Well okay well. What is that i mean. You're a big zoo guy. I don't know how the zoo or disneyland yeah <hes>. I don't know what's going to happen. That's you know if it's something interesting happened. There's a ninety percent chance it's going to be you know l. very news heavy or political heavy and so yeah i if this issue is she will try it right now. See what the trending topics are. Go ahead all right mike ford. Do you know who that is. Mike ford no sounds like a canadian politician but in fact it's a yankee. You just hit a walk off finger number thirty two. He is not number thirty three. There's no thirty two on the forty man just in orlando since through him mike yeah i think my trend topics. I don't i use the default. When i use personalized tranche. I turn that off new york. Okay new york <hes> the bahamas. That's not so funny money yeah a._r. Fifteen not running by assume as jabari. This might not work serena williams that you win. I don't know yes. She overcame a rolled ankle to win. Go talk. There's some go talk but she should be petra so i don't know it's a good idea but i just don't know practically how that would work but yeah maybe go off line for twenty four ars do something else maybe that works okay. This is an out there idea that that is interesting from a one of the members of the royal rumble actually go on right. Jessica leah writes in and says hey robin akiva listening to you talk about its three season three episode seven in this tweaks. Wheel segment gave me an idea. Could we have a season three episode seven recap of his show. That's on real time with the fall tv season upon us. There are a number of shows shows that are starting their third season very soon shows. The reason three are doing well enough that they've established universes in storylines but not necessarily so well that there anything familiar with is the show in question some you'd watch again. It doesn't even make sense and vacuum. What's gonna happen next. We think the show will make it through a season or there's a lot to discuss. I feel like you guys are both at your best when you're coming to a new thing for the first time in reacting to it and i think this would describe the situation situation with any of the blow shows if you like the idea and wanna put it in i- she'll give us these days find your list of shows that found their starting season three sure this fall the deuce about a proctology no nine one one nine one one. I assume it's nine one one not nine eleven. It's probably like one of those like fire. Engine shows like chicago fire the good doctor the resident the news of dusan h._b._o. Oh yeah that's a james james franco's in that yeah yeah. It's the david david simon show yeah okay <hes> floor obama shore. Oh yeah that'd be a good one for us to talk about ozark <hes> on netflix not seen it. I've heard good things goliath the runaways. I think that c._w. Ellen's game games yeah the neighborhood y'know. Ah no activity seal team swat very lazy show names on like. I assume these are all c._b._s. N._b._c. israel's seal team swat and nine one one yeah the orrville orrville. I don't remember what that is seth macfarlane yes. It's going to be a ten years. It's going to be on hulu. I believe in the nazis by believe it's not is not airing in nineteen okay up pose and grown ish. I assume that's not a compl-. That might not be a complete list but that you know there's five thousand chosen there but that's enough to work with so i feel like that. Flora bama shore would be a good one for us to jump in and talk about because i think that that would be. I think everybody has fun there. I think the neighborhood is another one that what is wrong with it at all. It's a bs sitcom. Multi cama mma sitcom that i have no idea if it's popular or not but i feel like that doesn't mean that everybody could jump into like a procedural is not not as fun to talk about. I i agree making fun of something would be the best case scenario for everybody. I i agree and i don't know exactly when the show is but how would it work logistically like a we are we putting on the wheel and then whatever is up to season seven that we watched we've already picked show or we've narrowed it down. How do you want to do it. If if you do in fact wanna do brent thought. I think the classic shows tend to be more fun personally. I i'm looking forward to the family. Matters hod cast you think it should have won. I lost the vote. I think it was like sixty percent for rumble the sixteen percents in three hundred seven and sixteen percent rushmore. Do you think it should have won. It should be mount rushmore. <hes> i do and i think urkel is a lock for the next rumble. Okay absolutely <hes> yeah. Maybe maybe four obama shore like a fun show but yeah numbers on right now is is just trash. Let's be honest. I really have not heard of. I feel like i have like some semblance pop culture knowledge. I really am not familiar with any any but i a lot of those. I don't think i've ever seen one second of any of them. Yeah well that pop culture culture is not necessarily a lot of these t._v. Shows that's true right. I don't think swat team is necessarily part. Even though i'm sure eight million people watch a week it might not be part of like really and not one of them is under forty five years old. Probably i what do you think. Are we putting this in the waiting waiting room. What do you want to do with this. I feel like that. It's almost there. It's a little bit of a tweet like a very creative idea appreciation. Put some good work into it but i don't know oh tell us how would come up on the what happens next. Jets what happens. If y- we watch whatever one is happening soon as none of them happening that week or whatever has happened most recently i guess yeah how about this and brent going to give us an idea to but how about this dealer no audio since game shows are worked out well so far in rene. Yes i've suggested for another one. It's called the ordeal. The highest valid case would be one hundred dollars that this person would put up. This person's name is nicky. He'd be willing to put up and you both play together trying to win as much as possible. I would play the role of banker and we could have a third party randomized valleys of the cases. I think if one hundred dollars two cents who would make a funny podcast okay okay you know what my take is. What nick you've got to put some real cash for <hes> okay so i like this idea. I think this is fun. However let let me see if i can improve it who cares if we win y- seventy two dollars or or nine dollars nobody nobody cares but what if if there were twenty five ideas for the wheel yeah ranked in order of that the idea number number twenty five is something great that we would definitely want to have on the wheel and idea that then the the worst frank idea is something that we will hate. Doing listeners might not get yeah one. That's incredible. That's an amazing. It's an amazing hitch. I would say rob. I just got a dna test. I'm one hundred percent that pitch second of all i would like to say we'll or no wheel is amazing. You try to give away thirty bucks which was nice but dr would've cared about and you've stumbled now the actual logistics of how it works like how we're making a deal or are we saying like all right. We'll make a deal for the thirteenth. Best showed we get a choice. That's hurting my head. You know what i mean but but i feel like it's a solvable problem. I feel like we could put this on the wheel today and we saw okay so that basically the suitcases would be one to twenty five and it's like okay. The banker just called is willing to offer you the thirteenth best idea like oh. Oh thirteen i mean half of the ideas are better. We're bringing the ideas beforehand. We'll start the podcast with the ideas like maybe for instance like when and we say the that somebody like people like we're getting like a brain trust together so like get you know just ester alling and d._j. Lebel klein crew yes right and they're gonna that twenty five potential guests so it's a lot like because people people have actually been asking for the idea bracket to go back on the wheel and this is essentially the same thing in a funnier format. Maybe more original format. I like maybe if d._j. Bell client klein and are named sterling are official producer yeah. She hasn't really produce many episodes since then so maybe she could get back in her races and maybe like when we close the door orbits like and we have to figure out exactly what how this would work but let's say we get the number six suitcase and then we he say no deal then they'll tell us what number six was the only. The only thing is is that if the banker the banker has to offer us deals heels potentially that are still out there that would tip us off so it needs a little bit weeping wheeler we would be very fine. Let me know i love it. Let's can we get wilbur america to then. Put it where it will go on the wheel next week but we need to tweak the rules a little bit. Yeah i'll work. I'll work on it with hulan well and <hes> you should be opening the cases which reveal the ideas and then the bank will give you a choice to either stick with that or pick something else and you have to throw all the ideas. You've opened so you could get stuck with the real clunker of an idea. Go all the way right right. Yeah yeah yeah if you if you if you leave it to the last case then you yes absolutely you could be stuck with garbage. Yeah the real game okay. Do we have twenty five people become on and they're the case people i've had be hard. Forty five mile delay okay burt brent just a wheel idea. They might be hard to be wheeler louis l. but try okay. I have a couple of ideas. I'm sure some variation has been <hes> pitched of this at some point but robin nikitas worst nightmare is my idea. I would like the two of you confronting your your worst nightmares at live on the podcasts lighting chucky on the show like for rob for example. We'll get we have like a clown pennywise. Why is it just as a clown. That's that's that's an option. I'm like a professional clown who could sort of dispel some of the fears rob. I actually have a clown contact rob that you may be familiar with familiar with. I know you have an affinity for billy madison dan. Yes you remember that clown who you thought was dead just fell and hit his i. I happen to meet a clown when i was working at an event center. I have is information do do the clown could be a guest on on a future podcast. If you're if you're interested <hes> do do the cam yeah. That's israel clown. You didn't just i play one in the movie yeah so amused through spooky. I'm not i'm not feeling i like the i like the name but i'm not feeling the the the podcast yeah i was gonna. I was gonna get maybe the puppeteer from e._t. To this is why i'm gonna have nightmares mirrors forever all right yeah i left that do rob akitas worst nightmare okay so then <hes> from from nightmares to dreams how hello a segment we're listeners will send in all of their are hap- related dreams drunk pitches by the yeah yeah and this is something that i think every listeners probably experienced just from the sheer volume every listener i keep. Have you ever had a dream about a podcast this one. I probably have <hes> <hes> but yeah. I don't know if every listener just dreams about the podcast yeah i don't. I don't know on the nightmares my nightmare the roman yeah like i had a hilarious dream where robin i were u._f._o. Hunting woods woods and we spotted an alien and i asked rob. Should we call the authorities and he's like no. I wanna save this renews. They f- breaking safer safer air dan could you tell us what the teeth of the alien look like. Mike dentist yeah exactly <hes> so yeah. I don't know dreams can be pretty boring to listen to at the time but if you had an h._p. Dream that you think is funny. I don't think but i will can read one next week during the mail okay well. Let's see should we have people start sending in the <hes> there are h._a. Or renew sleep during games and then if we get enough. I think that this the way yeah okay. I don't worst-case and read a couple of funny. We have a dream analysis expert on until it's definitely do do we. We definitely have that if we do the podcast okay all right caitlin other survivor dreams from survivor bread brad. Do you have another pitch for the wheel yeah. The last idea had was paranormal investigation and sort of similar alert to the conspiracy pod. I think that you guys could be presented with a number of paranormal phenomena bigfoot telekinesis aliens whatever end you can give your take on on if you think it's legit or a bunch of hooey or whatever yeah something like that. I don't think you've you've discussed <hes> those sorts of topics alonzo. Those are not like those types of topics. I i think i said one son thirty two fans that there's no aliens and you you you in chester came after me yeah <hes> the reason. It's not really my bag like extraterrestrials stuff yeah like i really ruined ruined it for me so i feel like that. The unexplained is not an area that akiva like to dabble in so i don't think we could we could keep that news af we could do a whole news af episode on that imagine imagine if there wasn't alien that we would be heading towards you guys for short week on the podcasts okay akiva. Can i make capena the wheel. Yeah please okay. This is called robin. Akiva have the best year ever okay and and this came up a by way of the patron cast that i did with the patrons of rob has podcast this week but we we were talking about a for a renewed version of the zadie calendar. If there was a nap calendar what would be the picture for each month of the year a sewer. We actually making the counter just joking about what it would be. We i think we'd start off joking around for what it would be and then if somebody wanted had the wherewithal to help us <hes> produce the calendar we could do it like for instance we would go through all the months and then figure out what would be potentially the most renowned thing to have on the calendar for each month of the year okay. I like it i i actually i had a couple of similar ideas that wanting going to get through today. A few people have asked lee. Could there be renamed merch so i wonder if this is a tie and if we were if it would have run counter my my only concern is as i do feel like we're just ripping off the zada counter. You know i mean and it probably sounds weird. People don't know what zada calendars to counter of of honky dudes from survivor. I mean right so almost one the running away. I feel like it's inspired by that but we're not calendar like the hottest guy is from like you want to women no like for instance for instance where we talked about how april thirteenth was corner gas joy in canada. Could it be not necessarily like a sexy picture of brent but but yeah a you know a cast like guys should be a cast photo from corner gas or something else that calendar like on april thirteen and it say corner gas we can certainly add thanks to the calendar or is there something else that should supersede. The corner gas getting the month of april april. I do like the idea i i had been asking the pitch. The merge idea people asked about <hes>. I think this is a good idea. My my pitch was more like we have <hes> you know. People basically almost like emerged bracket where people have like slogans or whatever and then whatever wins like a robin t shirt would be or something okay. I'm open to that also. I don't know if like both them. I like both what people would people one. Should we put that to a poll like like nap. Calendar versus not sure it's it's more original except for the fact that like sort has been done but we're doing a different version of it. I don't know yeah. I mean we're. We're going through the months of the year. I'm trying to figure out what would be a fit for this podcast. I mean four zadie calendar. It doesn't really like ma- chop for most of the months of among known ever mean a thing. If we do the counter i think we have to have someone like committed. Before making chris bors leary made the original olds zadie calendar and just was basically like got it printed for people like if you wanted one he would there be any any demands for this calendar though so people would y that you'll be funny people who had it yeah i mean i would definitely put it up. I guess a good time to do it because you'd need for twenty twenty wanna calendar at this point. Yeah i mean it doesn't make it right on the wheel. We tweak tweak as a little bit more all right. Let's i'm gonna put this with the other one that hopefully next week. It goes on the wheel. Let's let's just see what people say also especially if we had a few tweets saying i'll get that calendar definitely would help okay and then also i just came up the patriots cast as well that one of our listeners stephen who was trying to potentially pitch us for our robin akiva night at the montgomery biscuits. I believe that is a state montgomery alabama. Stay on the moments yes yes i believe as an affiliate of the tampa bay rays and that he was saying one of the things that would be helpful was has some kind of robin kiva deck sales sales deck to take to the powers that be at different stadiums and really we could use this for anything. Should we either do as a podcast or offline some sort of a building the powerpoint deck of robin akiva selling points. It's a funny. I just think when people hear spreadsheet they have powerpoint. That's excuse me when people hear powerpoint even worse. They were like no no no reggie. The sheet is much much more boring pound. Black makes makes it and more thing than than our well yeah. I just think that sounds a little boring even though even if it might be exciting i it. It doesn't need to be just because it's the mail bag. Main thing would have been like listen. Listeners trust us so much they need. We named one of their babies. Now we'd have to remove that from the deck yes but <hes> should we come up with an either so find somebody who wants to build the deck chore for us and maybe like have them on a mail bag and talk through what should be in the deck yeah. If you build our deck you can come in and i also think the team should be chasing us. I'm not even sure we should. You'd be chasing the team well. I don't know we exist so we need to brings. Put some some marketing material in from on the is the stadium owners. The manager of the montgomery biscuits is morgan ends berg. Oh remember him a lot of homers for the astros and he was also on the yankees in two designate okay so brent. What do you think of this so you're trying to pitch yourselves to minor league teams. You you have roger would need a podcast podcasts night next next pitch. They you know have basically we have to beat the freeze or something right right. We're we're. We're going to bring a lot of people to the stadium. Yeah yeah well if you're bringing people. I think they'll they'll do just about anything. Let's go with. Can we throw out the real first yeah through chester out of the ring yeah if they if you show them that. Can we add that to the pitch. You like having some upper body strength. Maybe they'll sign you yeah. I think that's fun. I don't think we should do as a full podcast but maybe we had the the person who wants to do it. They can be on the mail bag and we can just go through the bullet points of what should be in the deck <hes> yeah that's okay all right so we got a bunch of things that the listeners gotta work on for next week. We're giving a lot of hunger. I make powerpoint. Yes we're not okay do that. We're not gonna make the powerpoint but we're going to find somebody who wants to make the powerpoint. Should we spin that wheel rob. Let's talk about what what is up on the wheel right now. Season three episode seven is up to now. How many spots kiva i think is four. I believe i believe so yeah. I think it's four okay there. You go four spots. Then coin flip where in the world is carmen sandiego crappy movie diaper. I census sequel ms mechanism which is just stands for mount rushmore millennial judge the roast of robin akiva better at ten hot take off off then the people's choice people's choice off the wheelers people destroy saying it's permanent. I think <hes> you know people could choose every week okay then. Is it getting zero spots. That's this week. I don't think so. I do think so you can. We haven't really had an app okay. I think it's fine bryant. What do you think i would take it off for this week. It just one oh and so close from one but it gets not gonna zero in the next week back to one okay all right then. I don't think yeah i can do that as well if it comes up then this week and robin akiva third wheel. What was that kiva. What what what did you say you couldn't do. I can't make people's choice have zero spots on the wheel. Okay got an interesting. We says yeah robin keeping you third wheel we unless we we discuss it for a while. It is we we sort of put it on the wheel a little bit prematurely in the sense that basically it was like a bracket of people so brand would call up and <hes> claire would call up and they would both and we'd we'd asked him a question. We'd say lying. What's your your most embarrassing story and whoever wins goes onto the next round and the winner of the whole tournament is our official third wheel for the podcast. Yeah i remember this okay. I think it's a good idea all right so then finally we have our cameo calf's. Oh i forgot about that one. I like that yeah. I i will say the eric stein thing. There was some controversy this week. He switched his podcast from infomercials the carmen sandiego who cares if it is kind of bad. I played with it this week. I don't know okay but it'd be funny is whatever eric stein who will have a good time. It's okay all right so bread. Anything else is just before. We launched the wheel now. Let's let's let's see where we go from here. Okay now. The royal rumble at one point was the overwhelming fan favourite. Is there a new fan favourite akiva. It's a great question. I think there's no real obvious you know. The roast is not eligible right now. The rose need some time but i think long term the roast will be there there. I'm i'm partial to the census and a millennial judge. People are excited about rabbinic. Even the cameo has really high upside. I think those are some of the top <hes> most heavily anticipated episode right here we go. Let's see well come up in episode number forty eight it round and round she goes. We are closing in on kiva yeah yeah. How is your schedule looking for going to a movie well. Here's the issue okay. Robin akiva better attend. I just did some work on this today. A brandon spears tweeted out and he said hey. I'm going to this movie tonight and listen to this rob. It's directed by fred durst from from limpest okay uh-huh and it's john travolta and devon sawa like the ninety star. Okay okay okay. Here's the problem travolta's a mullet in the movie and it's about it's called the phonetic alphabet a crazed fan who liked terrorizes celebrity. It sounds perfect perfect for our <hes> sort of needs years the problem. It's such a small movie that the only places you could even consider seeing it or new york l._a. Okay and i'm not in new york or l._a. Right now and i just don't know but here's the google the movie the fanatic junk travolta his career low as the fanatic bombs from the hollywood reporter <hes> so it sounds amazing i just i just don't think it's logistically possible even even for you. It might the arena cinna lounge hollywood and the studio movie grill. I have not heard of either of these places. The problem is i. I think for either of those for a movie like this if it goes straight to v._o._d. Because there was probably no self-awareness movie that they knows not going to be hit. A lot of times will also so go straight to the o._d. And then you could just watch it but a movie like this. I'm sure fred thurston. John travolta thought it would make one hundred million dollars. They didn't do that. <hes> so i'm shortly out of theaters like this week okay and i just don't think we can. I don't think it's realistic like it's not online. Even if i would go to the you know. The podcast guild sends us some some screeners. I other options. I don't think there are any this. Is this a re spin situation or this. Is there's no short. It's a respond. I'm pretty sure it's a respond boy brian. What do you think of that. I said there's no there's some weeks. There's just not going to be an option. I even did the work this week divine one but there was just no movie timing wise. This does not work out a great for me because i'm traveling next weekend so that's gonna be. That's gonna be tricky for me to get to a movie so if we ever put this back we're gonna take this off the wheel until we find a movie. We have wolfer. America and people are our movie experts. There's ever a movie like this or if this movie even this movie when it comes to. I guess maybe we'll go in the crappy movie diaper. I was gonna say you. You have to add it to the diaper. It looks like when it's when it's available you watch <hes> but if there is a terrible movie there's really nothing right now that seventeen and seventeen percent even the right one but that's a seventy percent on on rotten tomatoes which is not the rock bottom seventeen is really bad. We see a couple of years earlier today. Yeah that's right so i think we can't can't see this movie eventually but it's not going to be too but when this gets added maybe it'll get okay schism controversial today on apso then the now better ten will get a second spot on the wheel yeah but not not yet because we it may just be all it's probably would have been off until we actually find the movie okay well that that being said i'm just going to add it at a second spot because we'll sure yet in the future okay so second spot added four better attend and so we will have our second spin. This all is kosher so far as seems above board to me while board okay all right. Let's go ahead and see <hes> spin number two. We'll be getting some feedback about this all right. The number two is come up season three episode seven okay nine alright akiva. Are you ready to hear her about season three episode seven now i i think i lost the family matters ball between now so i need to make a new who family matters ball as you make a new one. I'll read the names of the podcasts that are on the twenty seconds here all right family matters small wonder alf. That's a two part episode. It's a little tricky dawson's creek sex in the city or meets world gilligan's island the muppet show the real world world gilmore girls married with children do e houser m._d. Survivor with bert cooper blossom friends. The brady bunch bob's burgers. I think it's not available my sister's traveling when this week <hes> the golden girls jersey shore ori who is brought to great shame today by entourage okay all right twenty funny movies twenty tv shows in the season three episode seven all right. Let's go and see what it's gonna be found one. It's going to be an open my eyes so i will look at my hand and see that it is dawson's austin's creek. Wow all right okay. I don't wanna wait hathaway over this week. We're talking. Dawson's creek was was that a your pick like or is that a <hes> sort of like begrudgingly. It got into the fishbowl. I have no recollection in there for a long time. Okay all right. I actually remember the veto ravi sound you sound mad. You wanna veto dozens creeks interrupts at seven. It's not one that i feel strongly about. Well you've got to veto. It's already september. <hes> i do a veto after we didn't go to the movies i think i think that were going to start to say like oh. I guess you guys just do whatever you feel like. What if we watch scum season three episode seven all that should be one of the suitcases on dealer no deal that should be okay. They must instead scott season three of the best one or the is that like the punishment or they're pretty close to the bottom. I think if we accidentally get stuck with one of the suitcases could be scam season. Three episode seven might be our lease. Listen to episode to be fair yeah the punishment if we had a bad case in the wheel. I'm excited. I think we're gonna make fun. I think we're gonna make a lot of fun of this show okay. Are we in the market for a dawson's creek expert. It's not mandatory but yeah if if you uh if if you are a die-hard dawson's creek fan or if you're katie holmes or josh james vanderbeek and you're listening it us up. We'll have okay all right. I don't like pacey basic commodities listening fair enough all right read anything you want to promote any other royal rumbles coming out no that is it for me.

The operator of DC UNIVERSE DC Universe is available only in the US Talk about to take wins means so we can the smartest WHO's so i. Ah Yes thank. You will from America for the theme to this week in survivor and I thought not that the man behind this week in survivor history was going to sing the opening lyrics like he said he was going to do just a second ago Let's find out what gives with Mr Jordan Kayla. I got cold feet and I hope you sing. It was a joke. It was uh-huh actually wanted me to say. Oh yeah talk about tweets. Yes well and it was a conversation similar to one. Ah on several months ago with Akiva Winokur who I believe is scheduled to still be a guest on this podcast. Some point this season that you said that you know with the opening lyric is in. Let's talk about twitch. Let's talk about tweets which I didn't know until talking to America about the song but yeah I guess we have had this conversation before and I'm just like bad doing my best of these point. Yeah because well will we ever had this on the podcast. This conversation was this was. This was post post recording. Maybe baby the song was called the. Let's let's talk about twists or let's talk about twitch and take a quiz. I guess that's true. We talk we talk about the weeds and and we take a quiz. Yeah all right well. I'm very excited to have this woman here with us on twitter for this week and she ah for my understand has never appeared on the quiz and we don't know why. I thought that she was not pro quiz but she says that she is so. Let's find out what's going on here with the CO host of our bachelor wrap up. Everybody knows her in terms of that being an expert `expert on all of the snack chat going on. Here is the Great Haley strong. Haley how are you. I'm doing well. Thank you for having me. Hey this is a big snapchat weak and even though I'm Canadian I am find to be quizzed about all of the American thanksgiving traditions. Hold that thought. We'll talk about that too. Yes yes so. Let's talk about your plane. Haley strong has never been on twitch. You're right I believe that's a travesty but I think I'm biased. So I've been in waiting for my call I'd say since twitch began seeing all of my friends from the divers go on twitch and like I never got the call all and I didn't like message you and be like. Hey Why am I even on twitter. Because I didn't want to forward or whatever and instead of Jordan messages me on the blue the other day and said hey you wanna be on this. What did I respond Jordan like yes finally? I'm so excited. Thank the Lord. What's the deal George Wyatt? Why haven't we ever had Haley? Take the twist quiz before so as I told as I told HAL. This explanation is that I have thought for some reason. I don't know how this happened. It was in my head that two years ago I and Message Sally about doing the quiz and she said that she was very flattered that I I asked but she was not she did not want to do the trivia however this is a conversation that never happened since the conversation that I had with somebody else and in my head or whatever the reason I attributed it to Halley so it was I guess kind of like a Bernstein Berinstain bear situation I thought I asked Clinton I thought she said no so this this season now that we're doing pinch quizzes I was like Oh perfect can have how strong we could get a pinch closer then. I looked back at our chats on twitter on facebook and I realized I have never asked her to be on the show so we don't even need offense blizzard and I just assumed that you hated me. I'm a stand I love that you do and like I. I have a tendency to be kind of you know in my real life and podcasting live to be like slightly forgotten about whatever just because you know other people come to top of mind I so I just figured like Oh. I'm not not who Jordan wants for this. I was always just kind of like. Oh okay I got it you want other like like I get it but I don't fit for waiting patiently for my call and I'm so excited that I finally got. Yeah well you're here and I will say this Halley. I I have listened. I believe two more episodes of your bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise Recap than I have watched the bachelor in paradise it is episodes so I am a fan. I'm so sorry you've got to go through the city Bachelor in paradise or you listen to one and you watch zero Bachelor in paradise. Episodes sounds I watched two episodes of Bachelor in paradise this season I may be listened to four or five of the gas. Okay as long as you hit download. You don't even have to listen. And as long as there's downloading the episodes I find with that. Yeah okay all right so Haley that on behalf of Jordan Kayla. I just want to apologize again for having you on sooner I'm actually breakdown breakdown and rectify. Yeah I don't know where anyone Haley's anti quiz because I like I like quizzes. I'm not as good at it as many people you know around. But that's fine. Not everyone has to be a ton of ten. Some of us are happy being six six point five. I'm ready. I'm ready to do this. High depends on the question. Go to ball. I hear you on it. Depends on the questions on. It's been are going to be great as they as they always are all right so anyway Haley. So what's what's been going on. It's it's not. Your busy season season in terms of this is my. This is my off season for a lot of staff I my jobs are pretty crazy. I work at a seasonal restaurant and I also work in event planning and then the Bachelor and Bachelor in paradise. All that stuff happens in the summer so my summers are like Super Jam packed so October. November December is kind of like my offseason. So I'm just having a great time relaxing Ethan. I I don't know if I talked to you since this happened. Ethan I got engaged. Engage this summer right at the end they're gonNA lesions Z Q and we just got a kitten this week. So that's been a real fun fun. Funnel side project going on. But Yeah I've just been chilling grilling and whatever else rams with that zone. So what do you what do you do name. What did you name the getting? His name is Jasper so That was the name the shelter gave him him and all of his siblings. It named after twilight characters so there is Emmett Jasper Rowsley and Alice and like do toilet now. Did I think that the jobs were fit this cat. Yes so he kept it. We thought it was pretty decent one because sometimes will go into shelters and their names are going to be like a spot not keeping spot like sorry no offense to does his head turning spot just like was not for us. Whatever happened to Taylor Lautner? He's still around show he was in this really great British. Oh a couple of seasons. What's it called? Oh my God it's called Kuku to know Kuku so it's on Netflix. You should watch. It's really funny. The first season has Andy Sandberg the next couple of Taylor honor and like that's the last thing man. I don't know what he's up to like super currently but like the Google search certainly currently some things about why why are there are reasons. Why Hollywood won't cast Taylor Lautner? Yeah it seems like maybe that. Put that on the rap wheel the rise and fall of Taylor. Lautner isn't. Isn't there like a picture like a comparison picture of him. That's like one of his first Google results where it's just him and Alama and they look very similar. They talk for for a couple of months from now. Okay all right. All right we're let we got the Get into survivor. Of course we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA talk about some some fun stuff along the way but hale age wanted to. I actually what I wanted I want to ask you about was that of course survivor. has this ongoing scandal from everything that came out of last week's episode. But what I wanted to get your take on. Was that a couple of seasons ago. I think it might have been like a year and a half ago that there was a issue where the Bachelor in paradise ended ended up having a scandal where that there was an issue during the production of Bachelor in paradise. And I know the story like anecdotally but I just wanted to see how if there's any sort of parallels between the response that ABC had in terms of handling that that situation and where we're has the network on wrong so far with this sure and so. Yeah it's going to be hurt to look back on this season with survivor and not have an not focus on this blemish and so the Bachelor in paradise situation it was within the first like two days as a filming it might have been the first night of filming. Two contestants had a lot to drink and they're getting pretty hot and heavy and then something's went down. A producer stopped it and made a complaint to the head of the company or the headed production or whatever and then they completely shut down production like so. They film usually in June for like an end of July August viewing in war. Whatever so they shut down they completely shut down production for three weeks to investigate? What happened and I think it's warner brothers? Who produces the show? ABC They had an investigation. They flew everyone home for Mexico while they completed the investigation and then they found around that it wasn't necessarily the issue they thought it was. Maybe so everyone came back and they recorded this conversation. Chris Harrison had with everybody. Everybody saying everyone's views and thoughts about what happened And what will be going on the future and some things that that are in place now because of the situation because it's it is different because people are eating and drinking and so on Bachelor in paradise which are not on survivor. So a lot of you know not not standards. But you've got to have a lot of inhibitions that just aren't argument they are are when you're sober. Yeah definitely different very much apples and oranges in terms of Of the two specific instances is this is I was just more interested to know in terms of how it was handled at the time. Hell if I remember also was did blow up really big in the news like when it happened happened as opposed to when it aired on the TV show. Yeah we're broke in in the early June time that everyone ruined got sent home and why it happens in who it was between and what was going on and then so they put rules in place. They can only have two drinks per hour if anybody wants to intercourse intercourse with somebody else. They have to go to our producer and say like yes. I want to intercourse with this person. The other person asks say the same thing like hardcore consent. They're they're really really hard core about these things and so it'll be interesting to see where survivor goes from here. If they have like you have to ask asked to touch people or hug and you know because sometimes context is key but when people are verbally saying yes or no. That's that's that's really important. It was a huge. It was a huge thing In Bachelor nation and like you say not just within Bachelor nation it blew up all across the Internet and it was hard to it was hard to figure out what was true. It wasn't a lot of people were putting putting in their opinions and they didn't really know what the show was and obviously people look down on the bachelor to begin with so her on it. Obviously I don't think think Bachelor in paradise dealt with it perfectly. Yeah it's a hard thing to deal with perfectly. But they but they tried and they put some new rules in place to in hopes that it'll never happen again. Yeah re blew up when the episode air to just to kind of like see what happened But I feel like that overall and tell me if I'm crazy that I feel like that overall it was your your news when it happened but I feel like that. It was considered that it was handled well by the production. That's hard right because everybody's perception if it was handled well is different did aiming. I believe it was handled. Well time it's the same type of controversy of of you know I. It seemed like that at least in how it was was perceived when it aired that I don't again I'm not in bachelor world. It seems like that there is a lot. What more trouble with how this situation is still being digested by the audience? As opposed to the Bachelor Situation Yeah and I think maybe it's because bachelor took such drastic steps to take care of the situation where it feels like survivor. Didn't okay and maybe that's the difference between how far on in the season they are in survivor. Where in Bachelor in paradise it was right at the beginning? Would it be different if if it happened. You know two weeks into production there or it's really hard to say but at least it felt like the bachelor did something that actually mattered where it kind of feels like survivors like we did something congratulate us. We we talk to them. We're really should have been like a one and done situation ensure again just like bachelor. It's hard to do something like this perfectly and I think I'm hoping that production is seeing the mistakes they made and I hope that they you will be Paul Genetic for it and understand why people are upset and have steps and placed that. This won't happen ever again. Yeah and it really seems like the fact that like they sent the contestants home the bathroom and I don't think that that would be necessarily be the similar way that it should be handled on survivor for a lot of different reasons but it seems like the fact that they stopped they paused and figured out like you know what was going on and did like in the case of this like all right. We're really going to get to the bottom of this before we get the game going and they were willing to like not have season. Go on and you know. That's a huge moneymaker for ABC. So the fact that they are even willing to be like. Hey like you know if it's found that like that there is some wrong going on we are fine with just canceling this and figuring it out y'all but they have to write with all the liabilities and stuff they they would they would have had to But yeah so then. They started filming again two weeks later and then the season was aired a week later than usual. I think it started started a week later than usual to be able to deal with the production. Time and stuff So yeah I think the major differences that felt like bachelor tried you. You know obviously an INS on survivor. You can't really send everybody home but we've had situations on the show before where there's been hurricane and they've kind of evacuated the people for for a day. I feel like this could have maybe entreated more like that it would have given the show more time to talk about it. More time to brainstorm. What the right thing to do? And then maybe there would have been a better the outcome and I also feel like it. Just you know now that we're we're one episode. Pass this. I feel like the show has also dropped the ball in in making making the viewers realize that this was. This was a serious thing that happened. It's something that can't just be swept under the rug and in this episode. I feel like we should have either gotten the statement at the beginning of the episode even better maybe Jeff Jeff recording a video at the beginning of the episode now that they've gotten all the reaction that they haven't handled this situation well and then you know Dan being kind of like a AH narrator in the episode. They could've easily just made him invisible. There are other people who were instrumental in the Erin Vogt. I feel like he didn't need to be such a central figure. I think they could have. Maybe not really shown Dan in a game play light. Because I mean when you think of. It's hard to look down at down now and and see your player because of what he what he did to cause this whole situation car. They've made an invisible for lesser reasons. Understand understand why he couldn't have just been invisible. Wholesome knowing that this was an issue like I don't know why like you before we were recording? We're talking about Purple Kelly like they. There's a reason she was purple. Kelly like she was visible the entire time. And that's because she spoiler alert for those who haven't gotten through survivor Nicaragua Nicaragua yet. She quit and that's why she didn't get any screen time. So why why. Dang it screen time. I don't know yeah I don't know lots of lots of questions around unanswerable questions. It's real questions playing this season. Okay all right so this week we did have our two people Go home in Aaron and Missy Haley any thoughts on John Aaron and Missy as they're out of the game this week any thoughts on air or MRI. It's hard for me to separate any of the things that went on last week with what they did earlier in the game I thought they were interesting characters. Although I didn't get much from Erin I'm not GONNA lie. MRI was an interesting very hard which is appreciated. Obviously Clichy was thinking she was trying. You love to see people like that but I think it was a very smart move to vote both these people out Jordan just to go back a couple of weeks to win that missy and Erin were part of the group that had the decision of whether or not to throw that challenge going going into the merge potentially where where ultimately they decided not to throw challenge. I feel like hindsight twenty twenty a probably a lot of things but I feel like that maybe throwing that challenge get rid of Tommy before the merge might have been a better way to go berserk. Br I'm pretty sure we made. We made that point at the time and a lot of people made that point. That was a I guess. Yeah and again this was this was such a you know this is something that they haven't. I'm done much on survivor. Before were they sort of. It's sort of almost like an like an unbridged. There's two different tribes now going to tribal council so it sort of took that for them to go home but I think they were were potentially on the ropes anyway without knowing it and yeah I think throwing the challenge in that situation would have been the right move and you do have to worry about people having idols. It's tough to throw challenge especially if you're an athlete I get that sentiment but I think it definitely would have been the right thing to do and just think Aaron made himself such a big target right by winning the first the first two immunities and then missy again. We don't know the full story because we don't you know we saw a couple of scenes where she wasn't speaking nicely to charisma but it's just it's the reason you have to play the game and Elaine who I think a great job making charisma feel comfortable was able to get you. It was able to be in the majority of that vote. Okay Haley of the people that are out there. Do you have a favorite person that you are rooting for the most in this season and Janet Janet probably the number Lancer on on the board. I think we're all rooting for Janet. I wanted to ask. Oh that I've seen a lot of love for Nora and a lot of love for charisma do you feel like do people have to pick one or the other her to be a stay of Nora or charisma no I think I think he can stand any want to you. Know they're just completely different players and people and so it would be hard to be like. Aw I can only pick one or the other. You're the hate each other but that's fine. You know. We stand people on opposite sides for. I think it's a good rivalry. Georgia are you more of a team. Nora or team charisma. I mean in this episode. I think overall oh I've been more more Nora than charisma but more because of the entertainment factor than the actual gameplay factor but in this game I was actually pretty impressed by Norris. She was the one that we saw driving the vote I again. We don't know on the island who who is really in charge there. But the show gave Credit Sonora. I don't we shouldn't give credit to Nora for that. Vote and I think Charisma Rish morale. There were some parts of of the episode that were good for for her. She found the idol. Obviously she didn't play it unnecessarily at tribal council so she still has it she was able. We'll get out who she was starting to see an adversary. But I just think if I were a juror. And I witnessed the conversation between Charisma mm-hmm and missy where even though missy came out a little bit. She came out strongly. She didn't make charisma. Feel comfortable as she should have. But if I were to see that conversation encouragement is sort of you know missy said. Don't bite the hand that feeds you missy was actually trying to not get charisma voted out. I think charisma. Even if she didn't like the way that missy was talking to her should've it of maybe played more strategically and not had the the kinds of outbursts that he did and you know sort of walked away from the conversation so as far whereas the social game there I wasn't so impressed by Rish MMA but again I mean with the way it is right now. I think she's one of the people who's done the least objectionable Asia objectionable on the show. Okay I want to have a couple of clips that I didn't get to play from during during the week. I thought I saw Hailey that Nora. Got A lot of props four. She's demonstrating the way that survivors Should be going about getting consent before initiating physical contact on the show not voted tonight. Congratulations course yeah. Nura got some other players didn't say I didn't realize that we've needed to be doing. I didn't I didn't understand what they were saying in the production meeting Nora gets it. Yeah but then Elaine. No she's goes Jeff. Can I have a hug to a says. She has them but then kisses. I'm like no so if you tweeted during the episode Nora S Jeffrey. She could hug him before she did it. You see that down Hashtag survivor and I actually got thirteen. Hundred likes on that tweet. Which I think is my most awful viral superstar Jordan? Earn Galas over here. Maybe that's why I never got the call. 'cause you were trying to Hollywood me. Well no I made the call in the week that I got the other thirteen hundred now. I've gone big time so now I'm big enough to have Halle strong is against Da and then Nora at that first tribal council that there was some conversation about like what is what is Janet means that the group and this was another clip. That really made me laugh. Here's nor talking about Janet at Tribal Council Talk Jen. She's my mommy. Try that the wage. She's not she's not a girl she's a she's not a hot take at all. But if you're you're over twelve you should not be calling people mommy or unless it's ironically. ooh ooh Mommy. Mommy like how would uh-huh why. Why was that even flying? Yeah what a gem is also missy had an interesting interesting exit from the game in that Second Tribal Council what you make of Mris extended exit. I loved it. I love some good theater. You know what I get if people in Lincoln why they didn't like it but me personally fan I do. I want to see it in every episode having this after kind of breakdown like no do I think it works well for MRIs character. Absolutely I big Fan. Okay I find with that all right after missy ended up finally going and getting her torch snuffed. She talked about her experience. And this is how she described being voted out of the game on the scale of Dope nece getting blindsided doesn't negatively geico negatively dope to get blinds on the scale of doping. Hell you know about the scale of Dope Ness of course. Yes yes so it goes. Negativity is it negatively dope to decently. Dope is that what the scale is. Yeah so I think it negatively dope Tillich sorted out to decently to doped extra dope all the way to the top it's it's de facto. Push Ashtrays hopeless. Hope it then. Then hope is though during the way that she's has said decently dope over the course of this. I feel like that decently. Dope is better than dope. I think well yeah no I think you might be right even though it usually if you qualify something with the word decently. It's worse than if you just say the actual thing but yeah I think in in the MRI scale on the MRI SCALL- decently dope is more dope than hell. I would go. Negative negative than just plain in. Dove decently. Haley Uber. Dope dope feels like eighty percent. We're out feels like one hundred percent though also dope if is all the way better than decently okay. Yeah because it's like full Volvo job it's like it's decently. Joe We're we're like dope it's like sold out. This is why we need missy exit press and we can now find out all right email. Okay so we'll have to go on based on for our lack of information here after that we will say that DOPE IS BETTER THAN decently doping than negative negative dope is negatively. Dope is the worst and so- Haley really as our snack chat expert. I was wondering if we could throw out and the traditional Thanksgiving foods for you and you could tell dope scale on the scale of negativity dope to doe. Tell us about some of these foods. Now when when of course famously Canadian Haley strong a Canadian thanksgiving is it all the same food. Is there any differences. You know. It's pretty much the same except I'd say we don't have sweet potato casserole. Okay what what do you have a replacement staple no relief relieve. I think it's like sort of a thing here but like not as much of a thing. Okay all right. We just didn't candidate don't put marshmallows on quite this much stuff as you guys do in the states not bad all right Hailey Turkey. Okay as as the nucleus the Thanksgiving dinner is a decently dope dope dope on Turkey. Okay I feel like Turkey gets a lot of hate you know and it does and I've heard a lot of justification on why does I am just a fan of Turkey. I love it. Okay I it also a trip to Turkey. Okay there you go all right. I love Turkey either. A big Turkey legs like one of my favorite things. The image of you with a giant Turkey leg makes me. He's at medieval times to every every thanksgiving. I've ever been to me with a plate of other stuff just holding the Turkey leg like nine in then using other hand sides it's a site okay. All right Hailey. cranberry sauce super super dope beyond indecently Dell. It's my favorite. It's my favorite part. And Like I. Like I like homemade cranberries. I love jellied Kramer. Jelly where are you just like. Pour it out and it comes out in the shape of the Canon came in my God. My favorite uh-huh yeah. That might be the best the best on the history of this podcast. Wow I could get a lot of hate about it like I did from my. Oh my my Bagel take and how I say beg or on Yeah. We do say Bagel wrong but the race as I wanted to say Bagel but but the Jelly cranberry sauce is way. Better than any HOMEMA- cranberries Haley. Remind me what was the the Bagel take of there. Were there was something going on in the world. There was like a Bagel. There was a bagels. Were trending on twitter for some reason right. I don't remember her at Dickey's like message and being like ask Haley why she doesn't legals bagels. Were hot for some reason. Maybe Yeah Yeah. Yeah this year at Thanksgiving my mom says does she brought a can. She was bringing it again. I said Great. She gave me the cranberry sauce. I was worried because there was one canterbury sauce and there was ten people coming to my house. I was like non going to be an grammar so I went to the store on Thanksgiving. Got Another KANTA cranberries. Okay and then. My Dad comes uh-huh later and he's like I brought another cranberries Jessica rate. We have so many cranberries now and we went through all. Wow Okay Haley. Here's what I do. Okay so I take I take one of the delicious dinner rolls. I put a layer of Turkey on it layer of mashed potatoes and then a layer cranberry sauce. Eat It. Like San okay. That's that's usually my day after Thanksgiving when when this just like the white meat leftover I I usually go white meat. It on some bread stuffing and the members. Amazing all right Hailey so instead of me quizzing you could you tell. Is there any thanksgiving. Thanks giving food that is negatively dope stuffing stuffing on staffing. I just don't love the texture but throws me off it's always kind of like wet and mushy sometimes. The flavors are a little too strong. When really I just WANNA focus on that cranberries anyway? Yeah I don't love stuffing I'm very reserved with my gravy. I just like a little side dish so I can do a casual dip like I'll take my little Turkey sandwich originally dip it in the gravy. But I don't want gravy all over my plate I want to choose. How much gravy is associated with my dinner? What else I do like sweet potatoes without sometimes? My mom makes regular mashed potatoes with sweet potato delicious. We often do roasted veg thing with like turnips and other turn up like vegetables. And then like Brussel sprouts. And I hate Brussels sprouts so like I don't want that Is there anything missing. We're GONNA any dessert dessert. Dessert dope or negatively DOPE I. I didn't think Pumpkin Pie was dope until pretty recently dope super dope and I'm not like decently double the Guy My dope I'm decently dope. I'm compiling decently joke now. What about Pecan Pecan Pie? Because for me pecan Pie superdome. I don't think I've ever had a full peace of Pecan Pie but I think for me it is. It is very sweet and the the one thing I want to not not a dessert. What about butternut squash soup? I like it if it's is I. Whoever makes it put some salt in it? Because then I'll find out a little too sweet Yeah so that's yeah that's up for that. They had my my cousins butternut squash. It's very okay all right. Let's back contract full down the butternut squash squash soup rabbit hole. Okay Super Note. All right there you go marshmallows on his side dish. By the way all right and would eat that. I'm not normally a big marshmallow fan but I don't mind it on the sweet potatoes but let let's get this back to survivor a little bit and let's talk about what's going on in the world of social media. We actually have some interesting stuff to talk about this week. And so let spring thing in our social media segment and back with us this week to go into our social media. Here's the Great Jacob. SEGER Weinstein tweets Tapie tweet planets. Jad Van den it Janet that you're singing long-tailed yeah okay all right Hailey. We have some wedding news this weekend to mention. I am so excited about this. Okay I love you know. I'm I talked about the bachelor. I love love like I love a good love story. Love a good love story. We have have a great one to talk about because this weekend Mr Joing Lum and Fan Favorites Sierra Don Thomas tied the Knot Haley congrats to them. I'm I'm genuinely happy for them. Still thinking about this couple makes almost no sense to me. But I'm so happy about what makes no sense about them. It's almost like I don't know why the world from day one like. Why did it take like four years for this this to happen? I don't know I don't they just make no sense to me but I'm so happy. They found each other earn love and want to get married. Yeah Yeah so yeah. Congratulations to Joe and Sierra. Lots of great pictures from the JOE and Sierra wedding a ton one of the season thirty cast looks like was out there for that. So congratulations to one person from Bachelor in paradise who. I can't remember someone told. Let me and I can't remember it. Was Somebody from Bachelor in paradise over a graduates currency Dr France. So that makes sense. I think that's Joe and Sierra. So congratulations on. How many married survivors do we have? Haley is this a part of the top of my head probably rob and Amber Robin amber. These two yeah the survivor Africa people among Kelly. And so someone. Yes so Kelly Kim It's not Kelly. Kim It's Kim Powers is married to Alex Bell from the Amazon. There's the survivor China. Was Eric Hoffman. And Jamie do GIN Janey. Yeah yes and then. I know we're going to get dragged for this now that I opened this can of worms Nicole de la me in the cold of course and then. I'm Whitney winning Keith. Are They married when she was on that address. Okay all right. I wasn't. I wasn't sure if the to Oughta know has gotten invited so okay so with the Keith. And are there any other ever weddings. There has to be feel like. We're we're missing some. I mean of course. Lots of survivors get married but how many survivors have been married to each of John. John and Poverty Jonah Poverty. Okay Okay Yeah Yeah yes okay. Yeah to me the at least on paper the Joe and Sierra one is is way more easy to see than the John in poverty. But I'm happy I like. I like them both okay. I agree with you there. Station and Rachel Count. Well I'm trying to think they can't it. We're married on the one that John John and Jacqueline Okay I guess I think it counts. I think accounts. Don't you know you can meet on Rachel Apostle to drag on twitter Jordan. I don't think Rachel Apostles GonNa drag. Okay all right so congratulations to Joe and Sierra for all that okay we talked. It's a little bit about Nora. Nora had some great if not tweets then re tweets because this week Nora had the opportunity you too not just win immunity but also to win. PB and J. for her tribe Haley quickly weigh in on PB and J.. I like it. Yeah it's a classic. Would I stand on a platform for extra time for. I don't think so. Oh you would give you a jump golf like Nora. I would probably forget to. I think like you haven't eaten Ceylon. You forgot you're just excited you one thing I get it. Yeah the people. There would have remembered that there is a reward part of the challenge but didn't Jeff not even state that until the talented started. someone was out when he when he said that they were going to attach the reward. I might be wrong about that but I take. TB J. Person Okay so on Nora's twitter the of course. The great at Nora knows best one she had some interesting re re tweets after this past episode that Nora had tweeted or re tweeted somebody a person named own my days on twitter at Kalija underscore. T- nora dozen give a F. Word about that. PB and J. Hashtag survivor with a Gif of beyond say just sort of like you so you just put a hand through her hair not caring for got someone did make a point in the in the Patriot group that it was actually actually from a strategic standpoint. Even though I don't think she did a strategically it may have been a good thing for Nora not to win the challenge outright because he doesn't look like as much of a challenge threat going forward but I think she's just was was being nora and forgot but we got some again like amazing. TV Out of it. So it's worth it for us. Yeah she nora. Nora did not care and then also on top at that then she had another re tweet about this same part of the episode. Where Nora retweeted somebody else all is well? Add good life forty nine said no dean did not open his mouth to say that nor could have won them. PB and J. and and have the nerve to sound annoyed after he didn't Win S. word for them boy by ended Hansie. Dan Actually actually call her stupid and then she has a gift of a boy by fine I mean they should have lasted longer if they if they wanted immunity and they wanted their drive to win a reward. They should have lasted longer. I do understand in the moment being Being disappointed that again. Is it really great like a Gregg. But you're really playing a great social gaming or calling someone stupid and pointing out that they could have won. You think at that point you want to try to keep it as quiet as possible. I don't know but are the shady re tweets from Nora. Haley is adding to the legend of Nora. Absolutely this feels like quintessential on her good on Golan nor keep keep the shady re tweets coming because superdome salute absolutely if you can't say segment Shady Nora Shady nor retweets because it's really great then. I want to talk about another another suddenly spicy of twitter conversation and at least still funds by there. There was some talk about survivor. Goats about the you know the Goat Kentucky and the goat army going far into the season and in Haley of the Great Ron Clarke had something to say about goats and Ron Clark asked for future survivor. Contestant and Ron Clarke had said to the next crop of individuals to play at survivor. CBS Get out the goats. I we beg of you and and there seems to be some sentiment from the rest of the cast of survivor thirty eight. That seemed to agree with him. I Julia Carter had done the twitter Hashtag goat hunting. People wanted Seems like that. War Dog was onboard with getting rid of the goats but it it turned out that Julian Rosenberg really took offense to that She responded not all of us quote. Beg of you nothing about survivor as easy. He anyone who makes it to the end deserves to be there period. Maybe divisive should be if you WANNA be sitting on. The jury learned to play just slightly less aggressively. Do Do you think that we could see. A future. Season Haley of goat's versus not copes. I don't think we see this season but I think that all the goats would end up at the end quote unquote goats. Listen I would be so of moist choice. Supportive of those people and I agree like you made it to the end. You made it to the end for a reason like I think you should get some Kudos for that so the leave it there may not be how other people would have wanted to make it there but you made it there and they didn't so yeah Aurora. She weighed in and said again. If you're calling someone to go you're too who busy judging people rather than figuring out how to make it to the end. There's one right way to play survivor. Make it to the end. If you don't nothing else matters you lost. Yeah Yeah and like I feel like if you got a goat early someone else would emerge as the go like I feel like whoever is at the bottom there's always gonna the goat are perceived as the go Yeah I'm Pro Jordan. I think I would be If I if I played again I it would be like. Hey look let's let's just all take out the goats. Let's all go far. Boats I think is sort of a relative term I think A. Goat to somebody body could be a winner in a different situation and I think a good example of this is Spencer who got no votes when he went to the end of Cambodia however if he had gone to the end of coggin on he would've been a definitely a contender to win the game. So I think being a goat is situational. I think if you are if you're playing rate aim and you're able to kind of pull people long you get to the end with with other contestants that the jury views have as not playing strategically or not playing socially then. Yeah they're goats. You're you're going to get the votes but a goat is also someone who who can still your spot and it could be dangerous to have all these these people around who nobody wants to vote out so I think there's a balance. I think that there are goten survivor. I think there's some people who no matter what they do would have a very hard time winning survivor. But I also think someone there's people who could win one season and and have no chance on another season so I think it's relative all right there you go all right Hailey are llamas. There are a lot of bombers in survivor. Yes Haley Javid Whitson tweet it out. I might light also. Do this responded. Sorry Gavin Whitson responded to a tweet from Saudi named multi. That said GonNa tell my kids. He won survivor. Thirty eight with a picture of Gavin Gavin. Said I might do this and the TV will always mess up right before that. Final Tribal Council. So I wanted to ask you. Did you have any good. I'm gonNA tell my kids. Survivor means queued up now. Oh my gosh. Sorry no I feel prepared for this. Any goods gets me. I did want to do. I thought this was too hot for twitter but I did want to do one of two to one get a picture of of a my friend Dan. Liu and say I'm going to tell my kids. This is survivor Dan. I'm going to tell my kids. That Michelle Fitzgerald is the best ass. Whatever okay I 'cause I think she's completely underrated? So is that how that marks. I'm going to tell my kids. This is the best survivor winner. Ever and then picture of Michelle Fitzgerald. Yeah that's like I also had a survivor out. I'm young and hip mine is all around is unrelated. It's going to be. I'm GonNa tell my kids that this guy won survivor Amazon and then of course it's going to yeah picture of Matt Bonner filter. Yes there you go I feel like the rams yeah. I feel like that you could do something with Blake towels. -Ly I think there's opportunity for you to bring that back Jordan. I think so. I'm going to brainstorm this after we record. You're listening to this. They're say again Haley. I don't want people to think shading Michelle wasn't your shading. Michelle seem sincere. Seemed very sincere. Okay good okay. Good I just WANNA make. I'm worried that this was a sarcastic. Take that you are that you don't know me okay. Disagree Pro Republican okay. All right I'm GONNA get dragged for untold right now. Okay take it easy on Jordan. Everybody all right Bret Lebel. I don't really. I don't really get dragged that much on twitter. It's somewhat right twitter. We'll come on. What are you what are you waiting for all right? Bret La Belle says Nora says F.. PB and Jay bitches. So I don't know if that bread is sort of the residents survivor snack chat expert that he seems like that he's pro. Jay seems like he's not complaining about like we have you ever had the PB and J. in Fiji. He's he's not he's playing a game. Yeah if anybody wants to take me to Fiji so I can try that I'm now it's not like the pizza and and then price as A. I had a good tweet of help. Wayne Charisma was being spoken to about her health by the other players players. He says they didn't care when she cut her hand but now they want to call the doctor so good job by price.

Let's get to our this week in survivor history quiz. I'm so nervous now. Twitch push okay all right take it away Jordan Kayla Ish. Yes this is don questions. You've never gotten dragged ragged on twitter. I mean what's your definition of drag and I've gotten I've gotten tweets that like some of my questions. were slightly poorly word. Maybe but I don't think that's drags I mean. No one's ever said anything horrible to twitter. I feel people get. I feel like people get dragged way worse than I do and I think on a on a weekly basis I think the response at least the thing is people could sub tweeting me. Maybe like sub tweet drags. I haven't searched by my name without my like atrazine Caylao after the show. Yeah we'll see how that turns out so maybe getting dragged but at least the tweets that are directed at me or are typically positive and often when they're not they're constructive so keep keep coming at me. Hey guys. So here's here's the quiz and this is a long time in the making with the Heli strong who should have been against a long time ago. We have four multiple choice questions. You each each get to answer two of them if you answered if you get the the options you can only get one point but you cannot steal if you go for to your opponent could steal a point if you're wrong and then we'll go to the final round in which both of you can receive points. The four categories that we have today are cookie adjacent Losers what do we say to the survivor. God's not today and let's go to rocks. Okay hello you go. I guess you get to choose. I kind of gopher cookies adjacent. We're going to survive or nothing tastes better than five hundred dollars from November twentieth. Two thousand eight eleven years ago Wednesday and I believe how you're you're very close to the situation so the bone auction is known for the cookie incident involving sugar and Randy but other stuff happened to one is sealed note. It ended up being an advantage in the next immunity challenge. Gosh okay so now if I answer it if few answers out here and you're right you get to but rob has a chance to steal right. I'm GONNA GO Kenny. And he he is. Okay all right. Can I hear the question wartime. Yes so the question is good. Bone auction is known for the cookie. Incident involving Chagrin Randy. But other stuff happened to one a sealed note that ended up being an advantage and the next immunity challenge Sealed note that ended up being an advantage. I'll say Bob it was not bob. Corinne Kaplan okay. So yeah it was one of the advantages where it gets. That's you to the final round but then you still have to people so she she did not win a minute there unfortunately neither foul Yup and it is rob Ob Stern. We have Losers what do we say to the survivor. God's not today and let's go to rocks. Let's go to rocks okay. Let's go to Russia millennials versus Gen X.. Million Dollar Gamble from November twenty third two thousand sixteen three years ago Saturday on the famous rock draw. That sent Home Future Y.. X. Lost Host Jessica Lewis. Zekan Hannah were immune. Due to the fact they were the two players that received the tide votes Jay was also immune since he won the immunity challenge who else at the rock drill was immune and therefore did not draw Iraq. Okay somebody else was immune The I will say I'm going to guess and I'm going to say that it was Hannah. Anna is incorrect. So Hell you get to steal point okay. Selenium versus Gen-x. Let me put myself in that place. Who was there was was David if it is incorrect the answer was Ken McNicoll because David Played His idol on then he thought that adamant thought that he overheard That Ken was GonNa get the votes. I think actually on the podcast the next week. Sunday and of Not The credit for so yes you also also get zero points on that. So we have two more categories we are tied and Heli you can either choose glues irs or you can choose. What do we say to the survivor? God's not today today that one what do we say. Okay we're going to blood versus water. Big Bad Wolf November twentieth two thousand thirteen six years ago Wednesday who came in first place in the first post merged redemption island truly winning the right to give away an idol clue to someone still in the game. Can you marite that. Who came in first place? In the first post merged redemption islands rule and this is not the season redemption island. This is the first redemption island tour of blood versus water. Winning right to give away an idol clue to someone still in the game. Who Was it Tina? But I don't think it was because I think she didn't like outright. They win any of those until the very last one when actually mattered. Who would have been out? Who went out? Who went out John? Coach John Cody is not correct. Rob You can still appoint okay. This is so much fun and we don't hear the multiple choices I believe it was Vitas is correct. You remember who he gave the note to I was. I was eliminated that point. This is not for an extra point but you could. If you could figure this out. Did he give it to Katie eighty you did give it. Acadian is actually the first time in a while that the person who received a note actually kept it in do not throw it in the fire because she was at the bottom at that point so rob you have a swindler. As long as she did not find the idol and Sara Houston actually tricked her into telling her that she didn't have a great seen us. Oh Rob you get the last question. This is losers. We're going to survivor Samoa. The day of reckoning November nineteenth two thousand nine ten years ago Tuesday. We all remember at the Samoa. Final Ten shambo sided with the evening. The numbers to five to five in that ostrich on venture flipped against Laura on the revote in order to avoid Iraq draw he was also docked on Pi also and was. He was stoked on pecan Pie who flipped his. Vote from you're never gonNA remember what I said. Here flipped his vote from in other words. WHO DID HE GLUE ALLIANCE MINUS Shambo? Vote for we need to read that again. Yeah yeah this version who did at the final final ten John Ventures opposed as okay so the final it'll ten shambo sided with the pope was. It was a five five vote. John fincher flipped against Laura on the revolt in order to avoid ARACA. Who did he flipped his vote from in other words? Who did he glue alliance alliance minus Shambo? Vote for Okay I will say that I like this then. We don't get the multiple choice and I'll give Haley the chance to get it if I get a wrong. So I'll say for Russell was incorrect. I think they voted for. Mac is also incorrect. MIC was. It was Natalie They tried to vote for for Natalie. Natalie yeah so she would have actually been been safe if they hang onto their so rob. You're going to go into the final round with a one zero lead and and I can't believe he didn't touch on this during these social media segment but a former former twist contest in Zeke Smith started a great hashtags week. Remember when Josh Wigley and this game is called Hashtag ask tag remember when joss witter. So I'm going to ask you a question about Josh takes from this week in survivor history. It's GonNa there's GonNa be a multiple choice of two so there's going to be a and B and you have to give me the right answer so you are trailing the way that this works. If if we're still tied up tied after four responses we're going to go to a tiebreaker. If you get when wrong you can't in any more points on this question Haley. If you're wrong on this question you automatically lose the game couple. Thanks Haley do you think. Will this be the reason. The Jordan gets dragged for this question for forcing me to lose with hysterical this game. Why is this not what's wrong with this game I don't know could be arbitrary? I think people like it. Also Russell Hands that. He responded to the goat conversation that Ron Clark started. He said why would they do that when they think they should be able to. BEAT THEM DOT DOT DOT Russell. Who famously lost OSU Sandra? Who he said was not sure why? He wouldn't be more in agreement with Ron Clark. Also Russell's pin tweet is. I think I'd be good at finding infinity stones. If I think it's your rob I think would be finding infinity stones. I think that he's found all those idols. I think I think you're right. It would be good. I think Thai would be good. Yeah L. E. Mail you mean on the goat stuff now. What's your pin tweet? It's it's just my link to the Patriots video that I posted. I was very excited about it when I when I posted it. It talks about how that I made a lot of podcast. Yes in two thousand sixteen and while it's a link to the video which I'm still proud of the pin tweeden's terribly dated. It's just has a ton of likes in re tweets and I wish I could edit it so why can't you just say tweet the video again. I make that your pin tweet. Yeah I got so much such a great response to that specific tweet endured end. Do you just change every week. I whenever whenever we released a podcast they make that link to that the Stang. Yeah it is a good idea. Now it's thinking Danza next week. It's going to be sure to go. I can't wait to re tweet that. Yeah I feel like you guys are stalling here. Hoping who's a quiz all right. Let's go let's go into this cell. You need to get this question first of all you need to pick a number between one through four to decide the order three okay. Okay during David Versus Goliath. which two things did Josh tweet are? Extremely Shit Hey. Angeline is negotiations with probst and her constantly bringing up the rice be the survivor editors visually dividing the island into Christian sectors and Mike White saying cats. Hey is incorrect. The answer is just shit survivors visually dividing Ireland into Chris Sectors and Mike White saying cats so unfortunately halley you finish with a score of zero. The final scores one zero. Let's see if rob would have gotten his question now. Is this just based off the Jesuit twitter. This is well. There's Josh Williams twitter and there's one question from from podcast. I had a little more respect when I thought that you'd gone back. And listen to a bunch of PODCASTS. From this I mean we already ready. Did that with with this week and Robin icky and that was a lot of work. Yeah that was that might have been the closest. You came to getting dragged by twitter. Maybe you know what I've heartache. I've I listened to that podcast. I've been very behind you standby on. Rene I stand by it. I think it was a great podcast. It was I mean. Do I think it's the greatest of of all time. No I think maybe the royal rumble is is my favorite ran out. But I think it's above average episode. Because I made the questions that he was this way this week in Robin Akiva was that an above average that on the scale of negativity dope to dope. How dope was this week and Robin Akiva? The featuring Jordan Kayla's I haven't made it to that one yet I was so upset with my placement in the royal rumble. I need to take a break. Okay all right so rob would you. You have gotten this question right according to actually let me do this. I'm not going to do the next one. I want some better on the wiggle room. To What Tribal Council survivor history did Wigley compared John Hennigan boot was Eh Philip Shepherd and Karen Moen or be savage in Cambodia I'll say it was the savage in Cambodia that is correct. He said that John Hannity knows John. Lynch pin of that alliance just like savage was the linchpin of the by John Strong Alliance and when he went out. It's sort of allowed that to the fall. Apart I think Phillip Sheppard probably thought he was the most important member of his alliance and that he was keeping thinks together but it was really only. Eric flipped on that vote. Once the three Amigos pulled off the pulled out that move so I think it was a good point and Hashtag I. I remember anymore anymore. Josh questions a couple more your real quick okay. According to Josh. Tadashi twitter what happened in survivor. San Juan del Sur. That made him stand up and shout. Oh Shit for the first time. This season a Jeremy's blindside be stick to the plan incident I'd say stick to the plan do agree or or disagree with ROB. I was going to say that it was actually Jeremy's blinds and the last one that I have during survivor. Philippines Jesuit tweeted. If you're a Hashtag survivor fan and then you need to listen to you. Need to listen to Rochester. Knows interview with Blink was Blink Boston rob or Jeff probst. I think it was Boston. Rob Do you agree or disagree. I would've said Jeff Ropes. It was Jeff probst question and yes you could've rabbi. You did do both of those interviews during Philippines Rob. I believe was in was in October though. Okay there you go all right there this week. This is what the future this week in this week in this weekend. Rob His podcast. Okay all right. Do you have any other questions for Haley. Strong Jordan Haley. Since this is the first time I know it's a travesty. But this is the first time that you've been on twitch who was the first survivor you followed on twitter. Who is the first I survivor player followed on twitter? What a great question? Oh my gosh I have no idea. I remember the first survivor player that that follow me on twitter twitter now it was like it's three three-month like right when I started watching survivor and I will tweet about it and then he found me somehow and followed me. I don't know what followed him back. Wow which on twitter I wanNA find Bush. Okay but who. Who's the first survivor? That that you fall onto I gosh hint that I think we'll give it away. Oh you know the answer. He goes out of the bushes on twitter. Follow Him which is Sir Tweet is October twenty fifth twenty thirteen? Hello I have forgotten the etiquette. tweeting how do I re tweet. At Amanda Cannon Girl at Andrea L. McDowell. One person re tweeted that okay. Okay so this isn't necessarily the first one. I followed on twitter. This is just who like I said I have currently me following. This is yeah. I guess if you had I guess if you follow the survivor contestant and you can follow them they wouldn't be on this list correct And then is it rob. It is rob okay season. Everyone refers to with survivor Amazon. Bush season who was the first survivor. You follow twitter that that was not a WHO that is not currently on this podcast. My Gosh who would it if it is a twist alumnus when Who could it have been? ooh Gosh I am during blink. Maybe like Kim Spradlin. W4 Patankar on twitter. What do you think this is Andrew Wilkie? Oh okay all right okay Jordan. Anything else for Haley. I think we're all we're all alright. Haley what a pleasure was to get the catch up with you. Are you hoping that Jordan Kayla will call you again and get you back on twitch and and and so so that you can answer a question correctly in your next time on twitch first of all how dare you. Yeah that I'll just become coming third co host here. Yeah I can tell you have so much fun and I failed miserably. Obviously but I feel one okay. Who wants nothing win? We'll greet time being risky. And but not using the multiple choice. But I really don't think multiple choice that have helped me at all. Yeah okay all right. Here's another another Bush. Lockley tweet but I never burn that down L. O. L.. RT AT JEFF probst Hashtag survivor the fire at tribal Israel. It's very hot on tribal council because of a fire. It is harder awful. It is hot.

It's it's crazy I can't plea convince somebody to marry me and also good job on scheduling pulling your wedding for the bachelor slow season. He I was thinking ahead. That wasn't that wasn't very smart. I I needed to have it and not the busy season you know. Of course you can follow the great age strong underscore on social media also on Instagram at H.. Underscore don't forget that underscore. Yeah sorry I want to follow me on the joke to us. If you want to follow me you could follow me at Bush. Luckily Luckily on twitter another book at Jena Maresca. And at Ethan's on so you guys. I'm celebrity apprentice. How is the pizza? Okay there you go which is watching closely. This is from March eleventh. Two thousand eleven. Okay all right though. We don't need the historical deep dive to butch lock lease twitter her although maybe if you want to come up with a good.

Thank you so much looking forward to catching up. Of course we just speaking of Rene up that we talked about how the Jordan Kayla had one of the most negatively dope episodes in the history of the podcast when he talked about the golden girls season season. Three episode seven Haley. Are you a golden girls watcher. I had seen a few episodes but I am not a continuous watcher. Show Chow season. Three episode episode of for an APP was like one of the dope which I believe it was Yeah it's certainly was where we talked about the A.. chiller liked about it was it was dope or decently doped depending on how the scale better that was better than this week in Robina.

Survivor B&B with Mike Bloom & Liana Boraas | Season 39 Episode 2 with Haley Strong

"Some game right off sounds along by himself as the R. H. Payton appreciation appreciation sends over into like HDTV era absolutely. My mom is a big fixer upper fan support we in the most ridiculous hobby I have but you don't need to listen to an hour and a half of me perhaps and an expert on all things Canada which has a nice reverberation over the course of this season hilly strong welcome back to the BNB how you doing and this week's poverty in the guest chair as someone who we are very excited to bring back the expert in all things bachelor here on reality TV India do your parents not know that you podcast about the bachelor they absolutely now but they don't they don't get it oh like my Indian pickers and American pickers and my mom Oh in Lakefront cottage real estate shows so I I didn't know if there Hi everybody welcome to the Rha p BNB the only survivor podcast brave enough to I'm doing well I'm super excited to be here my parents are incredibly embarrassed that the thing I'm best known for is the bachelor just kidding they have not I went to Texas last year on a Vaca- and they made a point to go to a Waco to see the silos of Magnolia or you know they'd given what the actual mattress made out yeah that's actually that's very true so I mean maybe one day we'll get the money to upgrade to a snug I guess for now often make do well Haley maybe you could put a price tag on island of the idol so far I know we only a couple of episodes in but I mean we've watched wait to start doing some podcast Yoga with this illustrates panel here I will be welcoming my co poverty and chief Liana Boris Liana how are you I'm great stands no farther than antiques roadshow Hans Stars Pawn Hunters where somebody has something that they're bringing in a my mom was always like Oh hey how do I listen to your podcast can I just listen to it on the web and I go mom I'd rather you not think you I appreciate I appreciate you attempting to and a half hours with commercials of the season so far what are your thoughts about it I've been enjoying it I think I'm not alone in south I was thinking about a Gosh I come from a long line of Weirdos who love TV too much he's going to say you sound like the normal one yeah maybe Wow what an episode although before we begin I would like to make an official petition to add a snug tooth. Bnb I feel like that would be a really great addition get valued old stuff on TV but what about storage wars absolutely nailed Canada Yup and can coming into the last couple of seasons a little down but kind of like where are we doing this are we really doing this and you know the air that we are all harvey today we were talking about the episode two of survivor island the a lot of stuff going on cannot what we have going on here let's be honestly on a with the state of our beds at the BNB like they called it downgrade to those snug costs with a pretty much we're wasting so much of the episode kind of around with two people that we've seen many times before and probably we'll see again I would say I I feel that the seasons could be better if they just relied on their excellent cast in which I think we have great one this season so it's almost disappointed doing the Bachelorette watch the Bachelor Oh God okay so they just be listening to the podcast yeah exactly they're reality TV it's just wish we could just rely on the cast and have fun here but I haven't completely hated the island of the idols just find out what it's all about I think I think I'm definitely still a little hesitant sort of what you said Haley about it taking up time in the episode and I think that was the thing that people need how many times like are GonNa waste thirty seconds every single week reading the mantra of the island Mike I'm my sense of you it's not like my super jam but I'm fine ash with it I think it's been interesting to sort of watch it ISM is saying no I feel like they only did it this episode a it because it's still early and you know this is the first time someone from the other try visiting and be because Kelly underlying one moment where we're seeing flashes of the future and so I don't know I personally really enjoyed it I know how reticent survivor fans are to change but that one part of it that really set her paranoia going that I guess might have led to her ultimate success in that test yeah right because because she said something about pointing out the one of the lines right when they were reading it yeah so yeah I guess I guess that's that's part of it but if they're going to read it every time that's going to be rough uh-huh you know to tell events from a certain perspective I mean on the survivor historians we talked about this all the way back in survivor Micronesia when they were giving poverty credit for certain things I'm just curious to know like now that we've seen two examples of what these lessons are I will not learn more about what you know what we're going to be taught at the island of the idols at the same time the previously they've always varied in terms of length and I also sort of be alike lately it's been a device for production kind of shape the narrative the future episodes they're just gonNa Kinda Yada Yada through the oath of the idols you know the drill even with this new twist let's get to the good stuff yeah I think that's a good point and what I feel like survivor has really cherished in its negative during nine season was sort of like yeah you we know you know this like I mean let's look at the fact of how this episode stars that we don't even get a previously on instead we get future flashes we have our own little raven simone CBS camp next episode which is going to be very I forgot about that dot applicable to survivor whatsoever but part of me doesn't give a crap ghost island entirely I was listening to the know it alls last week with dominic and it was just like like at least fifty percent of what happens in that season and I feel like it's slowly fading from our memories maybe like a ghost itself but I I mean to go maybe she was done entirely responsible for and then when you look back you sort of realize maybe that's because she won and they wanted to give her a lot of credit so the more they eliminate that that certainly it's episode I have no idea what's going to happen here and when we visited the tribe camps my impressionable tribes quite honestly was okay liars like survivors and it's thirty nine season I'm willing for them to try wacky things as long as it doesn't put the game mechanic looking you edge of extinction so yes you feel like well I do agree that I talked about this in the preseason I hope that Iowa is not too much of a time suck at least giving us some time to get to like those are really two interesting wants to start with yeah I would say that the syllabus would be great to to look at this by the next episode it's GonNa be oh you deserve in your amazing and I love you and I tell you that all the time but I would just just joking with CIA continue to but I I think what was really interesting is the fact that this is almost a perfect example of how things can shift within three days you go out you have this initial impression of how a tribe is going to function what being stealthy I guess I and this is you know I know people that are going to have to make their own spy shock or something they're sneaky into the other or chaotic way than I ever thought it'd be I never thought they would do this to molly in the very first you can talk about whether or not it's a good or a bad it makes me very excited for what's going to happen because it doesn't just mean that happier cast is willing to play ball it seems like everybody in this cast willing to play ball yeah I think because so far it's making fire and listening so I think if you're really gonNA put together like the Laurent Clark rules of what you learn from the island of the idols Adamou but I was stunned that we got this move so quickly from a tribe in their very first vote of the game when we're two very clear outliers in those first two episodes so at least it's giving us an opportunity to get to know them rather than something like a ghost island and was like hey person goes they break in and then they cry a lot about their situation stop until she dealt with it I feel like almost like nor would have been the right choice there just to like keep things status quo in your own Haley I I was intrigued going into episode to obviously I was there on set for the events of episode one and so I had no idea that Mike no alarmist silicon to be quizzed at this point survivor history about the people that they're listening to like if you want to set something like that fine as long as it provides for good TV. Oh so many diehard fans on the cast as well as I think they're extra leery about each and every person you know I feel like maybe in another then push comes to shove six days you know into the game and now you have this absolutely insane move that I don't think anybody really expected to happen go certainly why was it goes island I have no idea it continues to be I know we talked about how like this season afterwards we didn't remember yeah that's an example to me of them being like yeah you you you've watched survivor for a while this point worsening we you know what what exactly we do here so that makes me hopeful going to be a chaotic character tribe vocab is going to be like the stable strategic tribe and vote I proved to be the strategic tribe but in a much and you know watching the episode Oh they're throwing out molly is of course you know the decoy vote there's no way I was like four sure thought it was going to be oh I forgot about that that that was sort of the editing pattern of ghost island because like breaking learn no game for you cry and eat a bunch of rice as in maybe a ghost island for example the triumvirate of Molly Jamal and Jackou Molly told me in her exit press that she this was not necessarily a thing it was era the one who's going to be next people are going to start saying your name because you know you're coming down to that and people are like oh well they're making big moves the this is just a little early for me to be like making a big move what great fun and I think this is I mean this is also an extra analogy of it being took like I gotta take my shot now because I don't know I don't know when the next time is when that seems to be the attitude really in these first two votes I guess you could also the logic of I know at one point like molly does nothing at camp and she's not exactly strong challenges whereas I know Nora is someone who is obviously very fit and could be more of a early on I gotta get them out so you know that's just like my view of it like pentecost and be right in the metal until at least the merge it it was a fun move and I appreciate the chaos from viewers perspective because I would rather go into a survivor season not knowing what's Oh like a lot of people come into survivor now being like well I gotta make a big move right off the right off the hub because I got to start building my resume etc etc etc we're for the first and so to have this happen the very very first vote I would be so incredibly nervous and maybe even more paranoid to then be out there just sort of on like Tommy's side of all of this where I would go along with it if that's what people wanted to do but I would definitely not be pushing for it and I think the Tommy seems like somebody else who essentially all the people that are going you know like Elizabeth had the most confessionals last episode Kelly had the most this episode when I found I feel like we've found out a lot about both of those people being about okay who's GonNa flip on who at least if you get the first vote where things seem to be relatively stable maybe it'd make you feel a little bit more comfortable I think maybe I am more kidding it was an amazing opportunity I'm so proud of you believe my anxiety is like I'm sure people are Mike Mike Mike I am so so excited that you've got to go and experience I like it we remember that because if you're if you're starting to pick strong players or you're suggesting hey we should get off this person instead of this person like Janet Kelly and and Lauren trio on their own as well for sort of being like hey this is an opportunity for us as for a take control the game I think that because paranoia is running rampant this season it's partially due to the island of the idols name it's partially just due to the people that they cast on the season which is great it's just fostering the Zina's that went down over this episode and let's stay on the molly train and talk about our preseason predictions on molly with an asterisk because hear from you molly was a huge preseason favorite for the survivor community at large going into this season where you on the same page so I a deal which is kind of crazy I don't know like Haley I don't know do you think that this is actually a good move wrong social game and was everyone's best friend out on the island however because she was super well likes by everyone she was also a threat to win this fact combined with her strategic domino action because in parentheses this begins the fall of the Chili threesome plus Tommy so let's just go along with that okay boy molly had molly making the jury and I wrote her choice of soup was slow cooked Chili and that's very important for this No not really I don't know what was mulling doing it was like so grievously bad I just felt like Nora had an issue with her and she wasn't you know Costa by just being like hey look at someone like Nora who's very erratic who is you know ostracizing herself she's very easy person to take out but going legs foreshore and then as the votes started coming Oh no this is a lot of molly votes it's molly like three votes and it's like oh it's like this is counts as part of the Chili Alliance was responsible for her downfall she was probably voted out by the non chilly people and her final words Molly states she had a good time it or her hair and I said that either she or someone voting for her would be making a Harry Potter reference at some point in the voting booth over the course of the season as we've declared several times in the past automatically taken an l. this season because Liana says I am biased and that I do have information in talking to these people happened with everything being up in the air not knowing WHO's GonNa turn on who but I can't imagine being out there is a player just operating and chaos is so much more difficult elvis relationships and maybe like he feels like more in the middle but then from Lauren Kellyanne Janet's perspective of really wanting to take control I guess I get that but I just wonder how much control they really ah you know a a an asset there but yeah this just just seem to come completely out of nowhere and I really do give credit to like the the you know before what's it called my God before the merge like what do you what do you need to do that for right truly have with all the chaos well let's start getting into you are usual stuff on the BBC I'm sure we'll talk a lot more about all the crazy there's something else he said that I can't quite remember even happened twelve and a half seconds ago so I gotta go with Mike I appreciate that yeah I was very surprised you or I know that like the Women's Alliance online NRO decided that as well this time it's really those three they're like okay this is an opportunity for us to be the power trail instead yeah I don't know but I still wanted to play along and write down my thoughts on how I thought each of these cast members Sans Ronnie would do as I left Fiji but Liana I'm very intrigued also making the jury I said that she would get blindsided after people realised she was too likable for the end game I did say she'd go home with an idol in her pocket I talked about Harry Potter a lot with Molly preseason she mentioned Binge Harry Potter as an example and I was stunned when it was not her who made the HP reference emerge but I think pretty well in saying like she's GonNa cause she's like almost two likeable and I think that was the case I know to be fair I don't think her or I could have predicted that she was saddled with the popular girl mentality because she talked about it with me and she even posted a picture on social media l. like she was very kreil upfront to say like I was not cool whatsoever in school I've she was very much someone who is just like an offbeat person followed everything's person yeah I didn't get that at all where the popular kids seen came into play it just seemed like they needed some analogy for people splitting into AH predicting that she would make the jury I feel like that's that's an obvious one like definitely I would have done that as well gee just doesn't seem like an obvious person to go before the were you or you are I'm not I'm playing with negative house I don't know what analogy is appropriate in the circumstances but see that's the but Kelly I don't know if everyone noticed this but she wrote down Molly wogs on her herdsmen which is a reference to molly wobbles the affectionate nickname the skater kid who secretly plays the cello you know Oh man and then okay let's see then Jamal what were the other characters so all the arbiter here you are the one looking at the antiques that Leon and I have brought in and determining their value God I you know now I do usually I wrote down her closest ally in her worst enemy I sent her closest ally was Kelly and her worst enemy was Nora so Haley you are flee hearn Jamal but I I don't think the king the Queen and the Jack was necessarily as big of a thing as the show made it out to be but I feel like maybe in a different season they could have very easily what'd she say she's like stunned and a little dizzy in her final words like this you point it could have been something on the on the cutting room floor there so I got molly a beautiful do I remember every part of it gosh now is they T- I did see high school musical theater though I will give myself that is it true that Avia the do I remember this no so okay it was Oh let me start so I don't know if either of you remember but James From Big Brother Eighteen I noticed hale he's been silent rather entire conversation listen did I watch high school musical yes can I do a stunning rendition of that song that Sharpei and her brother do on stage when they completely redid the watchman call it of it Great Music Can Utah yes it did this weird long video like a couple summers ago remember there was a cease and desist yes this season assist thing with Natalie anyway there's one line the beat her own drummer and wasn't necessarily regard as popular cut to nor be like this is just like high school molly is the popular girl and she's like I've never been nor is the nerd that hip hop dances. I suppose I mean this it's not foot loose footloose we know there's no dancing so maybe maybe I I don't know where that it's amazing it's maybe it's my preseason bias been able to try free cognitive power so should I give them like point seven five era often molly was Sharpei oh maybe just trying to keep the clicks in line I don't do what you love we must adhere by these standards the basketball player who bakes yes and I guess is molly can't be molly's that dances that hip hop this that's got to be Nora right the Mr gives Mrs. Weasley in the Harry Potter Franchise and Kelly even confirmed that on social media that's crazy that you predicted that Mike I'm actually very impressed by that one the teach us something anything survivor related or not about life and we're going to see if we can stick to those lessons and get rewarded points why he's already lost what I've decided so this is just I mean this is just for the fun of it you know and like I'm playing I'm playing with House money right exactly yes so we're speaking into the microphone we live inside tiny rooms twenty seven but we figured we do is every week or listen the first few weeks we're going to bring in our guest in tries to pretend whatever's going on is not happening that's really funny we'll go ahead and make no guard well I was just GonNa say was disappointed in the outcome disappoint online God that's beautiful so I well she did say she was feeling the cool kids I don't know it seems very odd yeah it seems like Jack would be part of like I don't know going like high school musical trope like he's the minds a little awful I don't think it's going to get you too far in life I'm being honest with you but it's funny that you know Mike your prediction skills are so dead on and then when you go to a trivia night at your local bar and there's a category about Canada you're GonNa think of me and I love whenever you're playing learned league or whatever the Trivia everyone knows candidate exists do you really know much about Canada we're not GONNA get quizzed on Canada are we sorry no no I love it I love it love it will Haley I'm GonNa turn the lecture an over to you because in the effort of the being be trying to always keep things you might give you some I give you some fun I'm excited and then you can you can just like hold all these facts in it just so in terms of being able to use this stuff at Trivia nights I think we should also might have to work some of these fun facts into a conversation this week with enemy of that and I had to bring it up even though it's not relevant anyway so you're welcome no I always think that when people ask questions that they answer themselves exactly I love it groups highschool seemed to be the one that was most appropriate for them but yeah I didn't get the sense that what was it it was Jamal Molly and outmatched promptly bowed out after a year or so what's it called Learn League yes and you have to be invited by other smart got invitation High Level Online Trivia League it's has like jeopardy champions in their Jessica leads is a very big part of it it's I went in there and I very much fresh like survivor we're gonNA try something new starting this week and look this season is all about teaching lessons so we thought preseason bias when you get to go out there and you get to meet people and talk to them you can do the prediction that somebody will reference Harry Potter in voting out people so there just I always remember from it and it's when he's talking about college and he's like did I graduate no that I come close yes and for some reason I just really like relation like well she was the leader of the mean girls pack it's like come on girlfriend but my thing like somebody would use a Harry Potter reference and voting her out is there are a oh I want to say they're six and there's like two territories ten provinces three territories it's my own family including my infant son well you know he's not much of a conversationalist I'm sure yet but he'll get there but if he just keeps being facts he is for the nerds online H. Two trivia each learn I used to learn league as like a very or in some sort of way so healy I know he sorta prepped you for this do you have something that you want to teach us this week yes at the beginning of the episode he said I'm I'm the newer of all things bachelor in Canada and those were the two things whereas like what should I teach them about this candidate that's a little easier oh you know what what's your favorite province Wa I dunno mainstream top three craven favorite providence okay let me think of the provinces they've actually been to say well what's not exactly my favorite then got to say well I know like I just went again I wouldn't fit in mind even less smart than you so it's just not probably the place for me anyway candidate him meaty you'll want to move there one day very true thought anyways so do you know how many province Wede be the students here nobody at the suggestion of like Oh Mike in Leon she tried to teach something is somebody a different lesson this week I don't know too much about this world to be quite honest we only now if you speak to other people do sometimes so I'll do my best yeah I might have to bring it onto other podcasts that's apparently the only thing I do with human beings view and thin did that exact condition when you've got your engagement photos taken whenever I try to sing and dance with Ethan. He sits on the couch and stares at the TV a awesome school I can tell you the are kids in rural areas so yeah it was a lot of my balance I would say like I would wanna say Ontario but like I haven't been there you've never seen like the ones that I've been to you at been scheduled in Manitoba through your eye toward teaching theater too young because of you can basically see Toronto from the state more or less Ontario Russian French the only province that is super duper bilingual is New Brunswick oh ninety it's like colonized by both Texas Yeah well I guess sorry this this can be applied to survivor a bit on -Tario so I guess between the two of us we've been to four Canadian provinces so we're getting there that's almost half right income hanging out with me all show you the best part of Ontario Niagara and we'll have a great time that's okay I've only been to Quebec pretty sure it's fact ish the it was going to Toronto or the capital was but during the war of eighteen twelve they had to move it Niagara on the lake was also like a spot that could have been capital but again it was way too close to the border during some pretty contentious times in our history it's more like everyone hates Ontario why I don't know what we're in the middle and we have the most funding we have those people come to see thousand people why did they separate Greek question didn't look into it can't remember I was in second grade then okay we'll get to know right because it's like you need to stay flexible if you're someone like Tommy Who's trying to you know make everybody happy you sort of have to be able to speak both languages typically speaking excellent yeah the newest territory none of it separated from the Northwest Territories on April first nine hundred ninety nine and it has a population of thirty five like any Toronto people have been like what are you should move the capital here there's more people here who goes to Ottawa anymore so this might not be like the most true thing I've ever said Quebec is straight friends like they do everything in French Oh God just the only one that really operates unlike stance on both halves of that river is New Brunswick indeed the capital of Canada Ottawa for the largest city is Toronto has ever been petition Yeah Ottawa is it we have a great time there it's cold i read something that it was like it's the second oldest capital or something on earth I I yup every site in New Brunswick has French Ed English oh interesting is there a historical reason for that is it because mall and Molly from Quebec then 'cause they're like they're like their own people hate I guess if everybody hates Ontario then Tommy would be the New Brunswick if we had to assign people different groups so then okay so Tommy's from New Brunswick then I guess you would put our like Jackson drama like Oh west coast is she's there to pocket Yan ask rivalry not as much there is some ask for what reason like Toronto's fine but it's like not back right sorry trunk Tony and not it's not that great But I love the east coast impartial to it I went I went compete Ottawa the second oldest capital in the world I'm like I don't know what an auto ah is hey I have a question is there east coast West Coast Canadian they have like they just are so goofy and so like out there that everyone's like okay what are these weird as doing where's Tom laidlaw from his name from Toronto on I thought that Molly Jamal Jack would be Toronto and then Lauren Kellyanne Janet would be Ottawa of like hey you want you guys to be the capital no we're the capital Okay Beautiful Beautiful Work Michael really extrapolating on what I'm giving it an extra point so if we had to make it more relevant to your podcast yeah that's a pretty pretty apt comparison Quebec as like the the three that are just like on their own kind of do our own thing we're voting out molly that's and it's yeah because it's an auto is like right on the border right of Quebec in Ontario kind of make sense eighteen earthy out there on the west coast is very nice but if I had to pick I pick east coast sorry are official languages because they can like go between the two okay what is Nora and Jason What are they are they a territory Newfoundland Ooh I like that because wants to try to tie this and in some way do you want me to do because I'm just giving you fun fast let's read a wikipedia page there's other ones that were colder but off the dime diva that's perfect to us in real life because it's starting to get cold around here so people would be like ooh it's cold out there and say hey you know what in my mentioned I believe it's something like when you're measuring distance in the UK if it's if you're driving US miles but if you're walking US kilometers so he wanna live where it's warmer right we we mostly use the metric system as I gave you the distance in kilometers but if you would ask me my height I would say I think so yeah I'd assume so most pop okay that's not a lot of people now we were pretty smaller I'm five three so we really straddle that line yeah I know that happens in in the UK as well and feel free to correct me though is from across a k sixty two miles of the US border okay always like a hop skip and a jump yeah so I I find that's pretty crazy but also like he's yeah he's from like I think Markham which is just like outside of about eighty percent of our population lives within one hundred kilometers and the temperature in Fahrenheit rather than Celsius but you know that's the Joyce Canada has what happens around the world in terms of just the discrepancies between measurements depending on what the use is technically magic system but like I understand our population than the state of California really by is what's the most populous state is it hell emily there's thirty seven million people in Canada and there's thirty nine million in California's okay well actually that's how I do all my number comparisons is relative to other things I'm like how many do I have I don't know but more than the number of people in city is a high a lot of land but small number of people what is going to land if Maple Syrup in Canada has more likes than the rest of the world combined has more late Ice Yes oh I heard lights lakes is it like a facebook post facebook page for Canada has likes of any country and I think that means something of the UN so ask Kirsten but yeah they've been rat free for very long time that even mean I I feel like if I have rats because I feel like if I give that fun fact I have to be able to the most gold capital in the world and something else I read was Moscow and then I've heard is the coldest I don't know so we have to do go it like this let let's let's talk about what we're going to bring this week into our conversations from Haley's fantastic statistics about Canada yeah I think I like the lakes provide the Great Lakes count as U S territories or Canadian territories or do they share it we share except like that more lakes than the rest of the world combined I guess that makes sense with the northern part of Canada raise just like a bunch of he's in you should play your game right free what how Pied Piper I don't know I don't know how it's possible capital ideas between Ottawa Ontario back in the day I feel like I have a use for that so that's GonNa be the one that I have in my pocket though I think second coldest capitals again something that's really arrest them on my hand but then you know how it's GonNa smudge a little bit and I'm GonNa be like you know I'll do the Oh did you know that Canada has more or on -Tario maybe should be another this is one that could apply to survivor Alberta has been rat free for over fifty years Oh man Yeah Lake Michigan is all in the US Oh yes okay so instead of agree lakes so too cold up here for that I don't know there's a lot of suggestions on the survivor facebook page to make a cold season of survivor so yeah but then ended by them so I just we we're a great lakes place here Niagara Hose we've got all the hoes coldest capital in the world is a fun although we do we know if that's actually true I mean I know I heard that Mongolia has like the Michigan that's all yours town because his name is named after a state and now it's just it's all all the land of all the hose and thirty seven million people hailey thank you for bringing this lesson ties I I hope it's been going to today I fun with this diving into that one day so then I guess my other one that I liked where more people in California than there are in Canada I think that's a fun one everybody hates Ottawa apparently everyone wants to cut down all the trees for more thanks doesn't mean they're filming survivor candidate soon I don't think hat chat around the the Great Patrick Bolton from survivor triple H I've come up with a quiz about stuff that Nora did this episode it's multiple choice we're going to go it's an acronym for remembering the names of the Great Lakes yes I don't know if I've ever heard that really really homes I just know them I guess because I'm like easy to glum onto even if it's not exactly true I'm GonNa give you two more fun facts I think are going to work well in your everyday conversation candidates the world's largest export going to be like how can we put them in their underwear then they're gonna that's true when what is the population of Canada let us look it up I didn't backup because I have so many questions myself all right all right well figured out I'm Gonna I'm Gonna I'm GonNa personally go with the ever changing in television a nightmare roommate and I think that's a good description she is intense and I definitely got that from listening to her preseason and she is a person that I probably would not much enjoy living with I'd say she entertained you can just keep it in your pocket at all times and unfolded me like lesson. Canada reminds me of like bring a list of conversation topics to talk about on a first date stars and we are back let's keep on keeping on all right well let's get into hilly provided a bit of a game with Canadian so let's get into it and we'll start with you Liana so again it's a multiple choice question so which one of these the fire so I'm GonNa go with D that is correct yes there's a whole montage of Nora just sort of talking to whoever might be listening remains in the game to live another day an estimated brings some more entertainment to our screens for weeks to come or I thought I would do an honor of one of the very first BB Games we did laidlaw they can bring into conversations with Laidlaw to break the ice says he wants to do that as a hockey player. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA do my best to memorize these but I also have a feeling was around a lot of this episode we saw it on the next time on but I don't think any of us expected the nora that we saw over the course of episode two luckily own let's get into our first game of a podcast I like to call do you know Rah Nora so nora I believe me so out of homes guys just get hose and we get the APP okay that took me because the was not one of Norris complaints about vocal by when she woke up the next morning and started to berate them a people don't bring take let me unfold my list of Canadian factor is all about Canada. I'm just GONNA go over really well real well I would people like Canada and they never back and forth and see which one of you was paying more attention to what Nora did this episode before we get into it Haley what are your thoughts about Nora two episodes in I want to live what else do I have for you I've got a lot of facts just tell me for the facts are the facts I'm GonNa go with sorry I'm just thinking ahead the facts back enough fire would be people don't collect coconuts while they're on their walks and their little talks see people's attitudes or to chill view and reading some of the preseason content and I think we're just seeing it a completely unfold in front of us but that being said good TV L. D. People are keeping up with their talking all night ooh was she was up all night ten Chili and have a good time I will also say that Nora also was delivering half-days complaints with food in her mouth underdogs I'm sorry hold them losers I felt like that was a really strong word but I felt if anyone loser's misfits underdogs nerds Yup ooh I I'm GonNa go with says complaints move from the Vocab tribe at large to her ultimate target here in Miss Molly byman which is not one of the things her hand d she knows how to talk in sharp this is tough I'm going to go with that Nora said about Molly a she's a caddy popular girl be she sneaky see she has the men in the of this episode what word this Nora not use to describe herself and Jason a losers right and like Oh yeah you know what I do like Canada ain't so excited to hear about this before we move onto more fun games we're gonNA take a quick break to listen to a word from our sponsor one of those caddy popular girls who all the guys love but she can see right through it she sneaky she can toss her hair and everyone gets charmed by her so hope people had fun with this as well because I think we will bring back some lessons and see what people have say hopefully some people out there learned as well about many lessons about Canada the land of Tom Hey let's go back to you here so once seen Nora makes foci do a yoga routine part of the yoga routine with something surprisingly calisthenic where she and at that point which again she talked about this exit press mal he's a little incredulous as to that considering there was no evidence from it yes nora accusers Malia being author here wow and now now this really says a lot about maybe what Nora did when she got back to the states maybe he has an epiphany with her own ex-boyfriend he misfits c underdogs de nerds. I have no idea okay what was it aches within the rest of the Schmor- now I put that I can email you my word doc if you want like hell let me tell you uh-huh which I think she's more than fine with I wonder if someone had done it to her what she would have felt about it not happy is my guess all right so Haley annoyed a US it it would be nora no she's much too like motivational call herself herself loser you know she wants to bring Jason Up as well like if I was doing that I'd be passed out on the ground I think we need a medevac once you get Medevac for doing yoga yeah exactly that's absolute under number from the very get go right Leon back to you hear Norah is going to commiserate with Jason throughout the course it's just like fifty just like they win completely along with this coach she's but even do have their limits when it comes to doing this now everyone's reactions to that scene down fifty times x no no no no no listen no I'm not eating I am not expanding any extra energy on yeah that's super funny knowing that Nora things that Jason Jason reminds of her ex it's very interesting even raise their hands up in down several times how many times did not make Boakye raise their hands up and down a ten around a little to cheer like Yeah Man let's just relax nor is really big into the hand motions and I'm here for it man let's just chill oh I felt terrible for the people out there was a noise enterprising she really brings raise the roof into an exercise or maps right up and down fifty times or anytime for that like matter so anyway I was very confused by this whole this whole yoga class that they were having I go to yoga like four to five times a week I've been going for a while I have never been in a yoga class where I've had to put my arms and goalposts and put oh man I don't remember this at all I'm GonNa go Bravo I remember being something weird but I didn't remember exactly what it's them interact with each other yet because she's very much like Oh Jason you're great to the point where like even just as a post on the Internet like no I'm married nor an iron all right let's go back to you Liana so norah finishes her yoga session by touching her prayer hands to each person insane oh good in the background it's like what the hell is going on and I I don't know people out there correct me maybe I'm wrong and what a Nama Stay B Bravo see thank you d you're welcome doing my hands up and down no thank you that would make me dizzy if I hadn't eaten in days I get dizzy if I haven't had a snack in the last hour twenty see thirty d fifty I think it was twenty no no remain them raise the that her complaints about the tribe and she really is focused around the firewood for a bit and then she talks knock collecting coconuts go when you go on your little walks in your little talks and she also says everyone's it was really strange Bravo Bravo which is like I don't know if I need like an applause I don't know if I need it over during the episode Haley after losing the immunity challenge no replete with Jack Jamal and Molly the Ontario folks to be kept what in for doing yoga but I appreciate it Bravo Bravo there's also I didn't put this in the quays but the boat shows up right yeah that's what we're GONNA do we're gonNA raise the roof also this isn't in the quays but that's all it up with her doing it looks like mountain climbers saying she was a stimulating that is correct who said that but it was Janet and Kelly's cynically Janet accuser that's where the poverty I duNno seven point O. Comparisons came in a guy who delivers the message which I think is very tongue in cheek nor was in the shot as well that's so funny I love little things like that all right so reflects forwarding yeah no that was really great and because she's facing out towards the ocean I remember everybody standing behind just like F. This no I am not here for this the pop culture is not mentioned a the breakfast club be free Zinke see her see she will help rally votes against Jayson di she's a very loyal person and we'll do what they tell her to do feelings ought mentioned so yeah obviously Nora says it's revenge of the nerds Jason and says it's freaks and Geeks and then Minora can't help dance in Jason Declare said to the point where Jamal said okay can you convince us why we should vote for Jason and not you and she did not answer the question yeah those interesting I mean I guess she was she didn't say she'd rally the votes against Jason that is correct yes she did not she basically said everything but yes I will vote for this Chee not say in her pitch a she wants to keep it in their hands and avoid the back and forth be she just wants to communicate that she wants to be there Donna let's go back who was yes we all might turn as as Nora in Jason Talk over the plan against Mali what station where they'd be like well she really isn't loyal then if she just threw Jason under the bus but yeah at the same time you're just in such a survival mode at this point and selling showing so much desperation a show that she was loyal and this was sort of a demonstration of that she wasn't going to throw him under the bus but at the same time victims down to me and you leg I'm getting my shoving hands out because I just love that she's like she thinks it was like in the car like Oh you're done with yoga okay time to come around and also Dan does give the prayer hands the Bravo hands to the Nora not do it tribal council hey tell Jeff probst she doesn't like to stick in the slipper after and Nora push the button goes great timing after Yoga my God what an interesting lady she is it's just like also said in terms of her work ethic she loves to tread water she never takes a break so basically tread water until she drowns no the only one I remember going see I'm sorry she did not flip her hair she didn't know it surprised loose de revenge of the nerds was again the breakfast club so I remember being see we're definitely both mentioned so it's either a or d being out like oh the stick out standout stick out stick out freeze yeah no sticks out the per hair when molly brought her torch to get snuffed see say she likes to tread water until she drowns d get a spark from the torch the Toronto idealized wow okay well doing did mike okay get in your car drive the eight hours to my house like you should want to just tell them anything though today Nora ended up staying and maybe that loyalty is going to pay off something all right under that bus yeah I mean I don't know exactly what she could have done because it seemed like molly was trying to stack the deck against and you could see another type her para sympathetic nervous system which you might need to fact check us on interest as gray memorial she gets hit by a wave in the middle of your speech even Mother Nature's like give it to stick in because I wrote that down because I thought it was so funny it's like the opposite of sticking out you're going to like oh phrasing is that this is footloose officially I love that no dancing like footloose stop dancing yeah I loved it she couldn't she couldn't and what was I tell Jeff that she doesn't like to stick in only I'm pretty sure the hair flip happened resolute as her worst enemy molly brought her toward shop obvious she did tell Jeff that she doesn't she sticks out a lot she doesn't like to stick in her hair and quickly brush it out what was what was see say she likes to tread water until she drowns Nora freezing but what does that mean like if you have an any belly button is that sticky spitting in sticking in I don't know I think it's okay you but I can't remember which I'm going to go with a that is correct the breakfast club even though it features a nerd was maybe it did it know it happened right and then I know she caught her hair on fire that was amazing but both of those things sound exactly like something she'd say felt like sticks out in your brain okay or like it sticks out like hey this thing sticking out from your car oh I want to go out okay sure I guess I meant like Nope it just keeps doing it even after Jason Right now she's just so excited because this is like freaks and Geeks man all right Hailey this one's for you what okay Whoa hey it was so funny though because in that scene I love that Yoga seen even revisiting it I was laughing out loud and what part is like okay we're GonNa do this fifty times social situation right like Oh this person stands out right so can you stick out so then if you stick in but I guess she does she doesn't like to stick in so she is to stand out if it's the opposite I don't know I don't know I also I really love that one model she gets from the torch and her hair it's so no no don't worry it's okay we don't need to search you so I guess that's why she kept it in her hair but I wonder if this idea would have worked better back in like twenty run nora over the course of this episode I was supremely entertained as well as a lot of people and I cannot wait to see what else she's going to bring us in the future much like her hair for that one just one do that Hailey please explain to me I'm not sure because God because my hair's pretty light so I don't think anything could hide in their super it's back now let's do it that would have been so much better if if it had been a bump it or like I don't know if you remember when well congratulations Liana you have edged out Haley three to to you know run nora more but I feel like we all got wrap it up I'm assuming it's a pretty small size so I assume the idols on Iowa the same thing I mean the package that rob presented like seemed like the size of a lighter owner view would like tease the front of your hair up so it wasn't like an actual bump it was in there but you would like t's your hair up so in the front right by your forehead would be like this lump of hair go with like that big you know extravagant session of like just search me you know I don't have an idol and I'm horrified that you think I do and everyone's taller but I mean the package I mean I'm assuming the idols that we were actually pretty small I mean the actual told him on the necklace itself it's pretty small and if in your thoughts on this because I don't know how she did that or felt comfortable with that as someone who has long hair I mean I can throw like I can put it in a bun but how like three or four times but could very easily had another poop idle situation Australian survivor yeah that's what I was expecting like oh no don't shine this up okay but related question did you guys by her fake crying because I don't know it seems like he did I think had she cried on Iowa after winning I would be less suspecting but it just makes me feel like she was so overcome by so many emotions part of them being second she's on my well actually speaking of hair I want to talk about the hair all that Kelly did because Haley yeah that would have been the ultimate weights as not stick in would be for your hair to catch on fire yeah in addition to getting Medevac doing yoga now you're getting Medevac for lighting your hair on fire mm genuine emotion there but I'm also a sucker when it comes to like people expressing emotions on survivor whereas I know the players themselves or sometimes like I wasn't buying that SOB story for a minute yeah so I guess it makes sense of size I'm that could easily be hidden in your ponytail but it's so precarious I mean Kelly even mentioned in the episode like if people bumped up against I know if I buy this blah blah blah whatever which again everybody's terrible lies about the island of the idols is is just I don't understand at all Jamal had sort of a skeptical look on his face when she was crying and I really thought we were GONNA get confessional from him later saying you know Oh for not necessarily you know to have a different person go every time but I feel like the Raynham draw which I will say I'm hoping they stopped doing soon because I oh well how much volume does your hair need and like doesn't need to be it's pretty why I it was pretty mind blowing to me as well when she was like you're the only one that it was like a thing I didn't personally do it but I know what you're so yeah I mean that could be a situation it just felt even author her ponytail the Little Bun and the back it just felt too small 'cause Mike did you guys get to see the idols that are out on the island of the idols the cause it's my hair it's like how how well I guess I guess she initially just like put it in your bag or put it somewhere but I guess she really I can't believe I'm getting away with this person being Oh my God I might be getting in trouble for it that she does legitimately breakdown and there are going nearly a week without a lot of food with this makes no sense to me why you would lie about it when it's such an easily disproven lie as soon as somebody else go right especially because now they're it seems like they're making at this last week I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the completely blind even to the audience random draws to WHO's going next I don't know how I feel about that being a mechanism to bring everyone to the island each and every time but it really opens up the list of possible candidates that's not going to be like another sugar or situation where someone goes like five times in a row and keep the secret but yeah again it's continuing the conversation as to whether or not they were forced to buy production to lie about yeah I get where you're coming from felt a little fake but I s I think I mean I think she's someone considering that she like I know that clean Jane and has already made them fire and they're probably getting some food even though it doesn't have any spices to spice things up but I could imagine secret you can say whatever you want if we were to lie about it this is what we would say and I think that both Elizabeth and Kelly so far have taken that narrative ten survivor remember when bump it's refunding do you think that someone could have had their idol in their hair then and just called it like Oh man I have a total reason to bring bumpy yes I think what I personally settled on based on what I heard preseason and what I've watched is that Robin Sandra basically told them like hey you know we'd like to keep this maybe just my passion for it but I wanted to bring a little bit of the mass singer here do survivor now we actually played this game before I think we played it last season I look up clips later on in watch about ten to fifteen seconds of it and then I exit that Clip Nice and that's what we're going to do and I'm excited before we get into it Haley have been indulging in the mass singer this season speaking of keeping things secret there is another show on television airing at the same time a survivor but it's all about keeping the question is do they think they can lie about it or is it just like something that much like in that first episode and robbed Oh you should have held out I could have offered more the only issue is they're afraid that if they show the name that person's going to give you know like they picked Aaron and but it's called the last survivor so what I've done is I've taken confessional clips from this episode of survivor I have modulated the voices and it's going to be Kelly was able to do this episode do they not know that that's an option yeah I don't know I think there's still a lot to uncover about about the island of the idols they did I watch every single one of the monsters songs last season absolutely teen was a wonderful spoiler alert for those who haven't hey okay so mike can play it again of Nita but that was your quote who said the quote about being fooled once and twice it's not GonNa Happen to the two of you to guess which person said this quote so we're going to go back and forth Mike we can start with you you'll be the first Gessler is there an animal that can or a creature that can go along with this I did not come up with names for this yeah it was I thought that was pretty funny it was like reminded me of the George Bush quote so so yes all right so Haley this next quote is for you who watch it I slightly partake in it so you're like you're basically you're bringing back vine singlehandedly by like watching your own contact eight that was Aaron who mangled the fool me once shame on you twice shame on me that is correct it was Aaron and live loses the immunity challenge Aaron goes and it's like a little crap who's GonNa go down right yeah that's true respond the Lille okay well eighteen massingir season one he was wonderful and I was blown away by it but like this season I haven't come across anyone yet where I'm like Oh my God I need to listen to the fullest right that's very true all right this will be thingamajig to a family of jigs in this episode I believe is this person who definitely said it and that person who sat it was Jamal that is correct alison this one so fun okay all right well let's get into our game the mast survivor so mike if you can play clip number one everybody L. we're trying to this unsuspecting allies and kind of radar I think we're really impressed with ourselves because I did this last night so all right I'm going listen that's no excuse I feel like the people who came up with their identities at the last minute hence thingamajig well if it helps if it helps you this character's name is bright full moon on just going to scroll through and I know it yep that was the first thing that popped into my head as I read these of course it was so because he's really large nipples and that's I wow gosh sorry I say I have to pop a list of the have you listened to the imaging he is like style is in monster like if I mean it's not quite t pain but but that that might be said in the preseason that he was the king of the nipple people so large nipple people or something like that that's why they said okay the king of the of the Nipple see the full moon because he's got large nipples y'all like absolutely I would have gone there I don't know so the right things I don't trust anybody at all fully once shame on you for me twice that's not going to have unfortunately for their day will come awake the tone which confessional was delivered I tried to read past the auto tuning was it lauren yes that's I can't even with these people what a bunch of nerds okay let's go to quote number three this'll be your gas secrets and that is the mast singer now I have been covering the massacre with Queen Anne Makiya on reality TV perhaps and we've been talking about everything this season and so correct so she gave that really great confessional about about going after them and not wanting to be herded like sheep which I thought was really great so yes that was Lauren yeah I'm actually really excited about her it was fun to see her make this move and then also just like her general demeanor I think is is really captivating so yeah you know that was the one that was most impressed by he did he did what song do you just do you did easy yeah that was like I was like spoiler alert for the massacre podcast and I play this game that he put together the King of the Massingir which is the original show that the massacre was based off of and it's Korea show and they have some pretty crazy names for their characterists so that's where I'm pulling these names from so spoiler alert wait so he has moon sized nipples is that what you're alluding to yeah yeah it's kind of like you know like I've heard that song before I can tell right away if the person is like a decent singer and I am I gonNA stick around yeah the the the random draws super funny to me and you're going to pick names out of a bag maybe this is the renowned fan on me but like get a wheel at least make it slightly more exciting I appreciate that I was not expecting him to be such a character so I don't know maybe it's a low expectations kind of thing but I kind of agree 'cause I thought he'd just I think he's really funny because he sort of got these like little quips and sort of funny comments so I think he's he's there for like little fun soundbites I mean she told me I got the sense of my interview with her that like she's super bubbly but she is willing to play in that or the're from the show and I'm glad she's showing that this season aac on Thompson especially as the representation of the first ever Canadian on survivor I know this is the first molly touted Canadians I just made a great point on the room that I feel like Tom. laidlaw is a very underrated character even through two episodes and I think that was a great example but heavily what's been your all right this next quote is for Haley Chelsea within like two minutes yeah the fire shocked shocked me here actually all just ad-lib like they recorded it in later yeah exactly nor was like we gotta get rid of Nipple people they need to be taken down I'm kind of liking him so far obviously his styles little more old school but I think he's fun like I mean of course they pick somebody who's a hockey player I was but then he asked his father like Hey Tom Laidlaw you know who that is I do so that's kind of the generational not like our generation of hockey players because I want to hang out with them however the kids table what's best for future which one is going to get survivor like being a surprising character given his pro athletes status we'll say es in a big hockey fan and he didn't know who Tom Lee employees of Tim Hortons yeah but doesn't he lives in Connecticut right yeah so yeah come on come that was interesting Veasley sixty years old but just saying okay a quote number five Mike this is for you the first person with a Canadian citizenship ever go on survivor but I don't know like I'm surprised that he's the one these shows right like I feel like that's so typical like we need this if we're gonNA have a Canadian we have to live true to the stereotype sorry we can only do hockey players people you have the queen of the Jack of the nipple that's right that was the the alliance name was left on the cutting room floor cool kids instead is just full of so many gems like the way he says nerds and crew and then the whole thing what's best for Monica was the only thing that I could okay I know what that one is Tommy because I noted him saying survivor million dollars because it's such a weird phrase that whole quo is a- as opposed to like lotto million dollars I never thought about using an adjective as the wage describe how you make your million dollars like it somehow different in correct only can we sit down and talk I wanna get Haley as the expert not only as the Canadian the facts but just as the Canadian general because offer Hawaiian cute I know acid modulation it really wonderful so yes so that was vince at the beginning of the episode after they came back from tribal council yeah we're all the people who I thought who would the cool kids beers the nerds as my parents would always say you know what the word through this cruel over here recall munch table I want yeah yeah that's funny I think I'm gonNA use that now from here on out it's the survivor million dollars all right numbers for Haley no it was Vince. I'm sorry more time because I really love because Vince has such a great way right now is mark and a blind man could see that these three are running the game why get out people like Nora in Jason Win I can use them way you know yeah exactly I think like enterprising million dollars is different from challenge million dollars you know select the Lauren confessional I think it was right before this where she liked laughs at herself which is I don't know I feel like that happens a lot and confessionals but it's not often shown up but I I liked that side of Lorne as well as conspiracy theories of like are they legit like what what sort of like I don't know dark web stuff is Boston is Boston rob investing saying like Oh we're busting chiropractor I don't know because he did tell me in the preseason 'cause I asked him about like loyalty and he's basically like yeah I'll be loyal to you until you betray me and then I'm GonNa Light your ass up thing that's sort of the mentality he brought into that conversation even if it's not the most like socially adept thing that happened yeah that's true okay well Mike Congratulate Talking and I think even high pitch makes it even more enjoyable now have a tiny guitars and Rupert and say like who the hell voted for me I think it would be Vince I thought that was a I mean obviously I don't know him all that well but it seemed out of character I guess often he's the kids table what's best for me you know it's lovely yeah I I don't know why but the the idea expressing survivor million invoke many happy she said a big job in that bag on my mailing address my life that was Tom yes like the pro athletes worst ordering been fun right here he's a few more on the Jeff Kent side of that spectrum them like a cliff Robinson you know in terms of in Pan and it was so funny because these quotes I had to like splice them all together but it was interspersed with Sandra like saying totally normal things like oh there's wide open society on a your scientist are they legit I think they're not I don't know some people swear by them nations you won the mass survivor game although I have one final quote that I would like to play just for funsies just talking Bofors so I'm starting to really see how perceptions of people both on the island off are so different from the actual person onscreen which is something that I've also been able to Alar now how maintaining whether we get I hear whether or not the one who helped with bobby thing we got but I don't think they are right about now I think also my favorite was just one of being frying Pan Yeah do you guys have afraid talking s on twitter honestly kind of just because now I'm seeing firsthand how 'cause I I very rarely like new of people before it's actually okay I should try and make do you just riot right you just fry it tastes like popcorn I will say in might be compared to fried slop in terms of thank you for bringing out both these clips and the Fulbright Moon you deserve a fulbright scholarship for your work yeah left in the nipple comments the RPM piece I would obviously not get the idol but anyway it was just so funny like all the random stuff that Boston rob was talking about like you guys made coconut popcorn into survivor season you know so this is the first time when I really got to know these people on it's not like we were bff's but now that I know who they are off screen to see them portrayed the running for that anymore no maybe in a certain community maybe like the Chiropractor Janke science community you might get a fulbright scholarship for your nipple advocate might wreak on your digestive system but going in religious okay you're watching the season with like a different who was using a slang that has not been used in a long time so yeah I totally off base so we felt we tried again let's let's way like I thought again it was really interesting how molly SORTA got this like tatty popular girl moniker attributed to her when she definitely is not that they actually went to college if you went to Harvard parties have you made in a popcorn I've always wanted to go Cairo practice rain saying who the hell would say Yolo let's play the I don't think any of us thought it was going to be Kelly right no we were so wrong we thought it was going to be some white dude far so I'm going to skip over him honesty would be chill I can also see someone like Nora saying not though too all the yeah that's super chill I know it's definitely not tom is my personal feeling on that I don't know if you guys disagree maybe it's Me Jack maybe it's Jamal who says honesty would be chill I'm thinking I'm going over to Missy I know that dope go from doing exit press for a while but yeah it's it's a really interesting land look things now all right so leon he says I need to measure nipple size this is very important all right so I'm going to bring back a question I brought last week because we scratched her had the next episode title honesty would be chill so Haley do you have any ideas as to who would say that episode quote you know what's your boyfriend's in it I have two dogs Blah Blah Blah like talking about all these things you ask I'm sorry for I would I would get our is her expression of choice but I feel like she would also use chill as well right she seems like that kind of person yeah I could see her I could see her saying chill I'm right there with avid save we can count out the toms and Janet's and Dan of the world when it comes to these types of titles yeah actually I'm like in the Jack Jamal uh-huh but she hates she hates the chill mentality of no you're anti Chelsea very warm and she's fiery that's right okay so then maybe it's the other people so and I was laughing so hard that about I just love his it also she didn't even go out looking for the idol purposely she was you know she pulled an anti Jason she was out collecting firewood and just happened to find it in a tree trunk yes lens almost because you met all of these people like you watch some interacted with one hundred per se do love them more you more protected protective of them when people cool to see like her find the idol immediately and then was she the one who started a fire and then another woman on did something that was pretty cool it was like in an interview with her she was pulling the Paul Abraham in and say your girl a lot I feel like she could throw chilling there earl I can see so I could I have tried coconut pop or it's pretty damn as zag maybe maybe they thought that was gonna be the lesson was like teach her how to make coconut popcorn that's how dance with women she feels pretty well insulated she has that Rando I'd Oh yeah she found out random ido which felt like it came out of nowhere is like I looked down for a second keep taking cheap striking here and hopefully we'll hit gold one point set of just panting Iraq's because there is some more sorta like modern parlance in this next episode title so we're going to try to figure out who's during more now because like let's say I could see them coming back from tribal council and trying to say like you know man but some honesty would be chill that sounds like such an awkward phrase and I say it out loud subtle but I love like this the frenzied responser crap Oh crap oh crap I don't want my head to catch on fire at my first tribal council man would've OPA honesty would be joe yeah I I was going to go on a similar van like maybe with Dean but Dean has been I think he just last week and he has been completely purple at least Interro is great I liked it a lot I'm into Chelsea big fan fan now I think we if we if he does end up saying well I petitioned that we call her chill see from now on just keep your eyes open like that's great do what you're supposed to be doing and just keep your eyes open I loved it from Chelsea I'm so excited love that we got her singing it but I just can't see foresee a situation where she would be in that where she would need at least in this next episode because I feel like she has a pretty solid st would be chill throat another bite here what about Chelsea Chelsea has a very unique way of speaking I feel like she likes it's not like what like where did she get an idol and then what about that I mean for a number of reasons one is that Chelsea is like just proves how much of a bad ass in one scene in as as you know Tom Amass Tom said breaking everyone's male egos by making the fire in like literally two strokes of the Flint. I gotTa Say Jack Because you know you guys mentioned earlier on that he's kind of like the coolest night I feel like he'd be the most likely to say like awesome serve like clip going on with like yeah like survivor has been you

The Circle | Season 1, Episode 2 Recap with Haley Strong: Face-to-Face

"Hello everyone and welcome to our circle. PODCASTS Armstrong and with me today. We're all really today but it's fine is Haley. How you doing? I'm doing well. I'm excited to hear you're nervous being on video. I haven't been on video since I did a like a big brother live. Feed update with you and Brent probably a couple of years ago now at this point. I'm always always dragging you onto video. I know sorry to everyone who asked to see my face and my hair in the state going to wash before before going on all days. It's the holidays it's the circle says really really the shouldn't be video podcast for the circle considering the concepts should we we should just have profile images should we just Texas entire thing. Yeah that is something we should look into a live if tax feet or something I look into it for sure. We are here to talk about episode two of the circle. US On net flicks. Alex very excited to talk with you. I'm really excited to be talking about this with you as well I will say I did not really get into into the UK version. By that. I mean I didn't try it all I do. I would like it. I just haven't gotten around to it if somebody he wants to. Send me a link to watch it like I probably would I am a big fan of the Brits British reality shows and British panel shows. I just didn't get caught caught up in the commotion of what The Circle is so I watched the first and second episodes today. And that was my first introduction to this entire concepts and I feel good about it so far. Yeah Yeah so did you. Finally the first two episodes were Pretty much along the same lines as the British wine or is it super different. Like if I went and watched the British version would feel the same. It's pretty similar. I I think there's a bigger difference between season one and season two of the UK version then between season two of the UK version and the version because does in season one they were in a different building and it wasn't a streamline the production season two they moved to a new building up the production in value and it's very very similar to what we're seeing in the US here They shot at around the same time in the same building with the same crew. The only the thing that's different is the the narrator and the cast is they're both us so they filmed the British version in this building in the US us to the UK to film. I was I could have sworn there filling it in Chicago and I was like. Oh how cool. They're filming it in Chicago. I don't know why they're just like the river. And there is one parking structure that looks like that one in Chicago. That's round anyone knows what talking about. I could have sworn it was that I could. I could be wrong. I guess you're probably more right than I am on this. It's your job to be the professional ice coming into much more embarrassing. If I'm wrong I have very little steaks in here. I've pretty much gotcha cemented myself. As a person who knows the least who somehow keeps getting invited back east artists. Well we'll make it at work so we're GONNA talk about episode two in the previous episode. We were introduced to if that was your first episode episode than you're introducing the concept of the game and as well as the cast the first eight people something that is somewhat unique about the circle in terms of. US reality shows it's much more common in the UK is that they're going to introduce those first eight people and then continued to add new people as they send some of the original people home. And so that's that's what we are eventually going to see toward the end of of this episode assode Yep Yep and see. I made an effort. Not I told you this before. We started recording. I did I purposely did did not watch episode three and four. 'cause I WANNA get confused. At least I'm here now. It'll be like yeah. That is what happened in this episode where we stopped I I I have watched up until episode three at this point four. I'm recording two and three back tobacco. Luckily there's no elimination this episodes and nothing thing really big to anything accidentally spoiled myself on who gets eliminated in episode four by just going to media page. No who is on the season. That's that's you know. That's the issue with Netflix. To drop like this. These things automatically updated. I I don't know if you cover this in the first episode podcast. Do you think it's more effective to drop it in these blocks or do you think they should have done one episode per day or one episode every other day or something. I like that. It's definitely interesting. I think that I'm going to continue to mull over like how it is watching this one versus two versus season one because I've watched them all differently friendly versions I season one of the UK version. I watched late. It was already out. I've binged the whole thing season two in the UK. I watched one every day as as it aired live and now this one. I'm watching in four episode chunks per week so we'll see which one I like best I gotta say. I did kind of prefer watching season one to watching season two. I feel like this is a show that works on a binge for me more than it does having to wait because it's not a show where there isn't elimination every single episode. And so sometimes you do get a kind of middle episode where there's character development and new people added and stuff like that but nothing like crazy that makes it a contained sort of story or episode. So I think I prefer this to one like one one and night but it does make it a lot hard to cover as past Because I have to watch them all and then record about them. Just just for for clarity. I recorded episode one. The podcast with rob. I'd only seen episode one now. I've seen episode two and three have not seen four and I'm going to see for for later and we're GonNa talk about a four and the rest of them tomorrow night. which is Thursday around nine PM Eastern so should be all right so in the previous episode? We saw that they raided everybody. You were introduced to that concept and and then the influencers were Antonio and Sammy and they ultimately decided that they were going to send a lana out the door. She's going to be blocked. How did you feel about that? I think it was fine with that. I think they made the right choice. I liked the way they had to kind of think about. who was that? You're sending home. Who would benefit themselves? Gosh it's so weird that they don't even know if it's surreal person and I it who they're talking to them and then so when spoiler alert this episode. We're talking about anyway when a lot of shows up Sammy's door and it's actually her like. I think Sammy was pretty blown away because Sammy seemed to be betting on the fact. That a Lotta was just some sort of characterization of a mono on all or whatever I think a lot of made some mistakes and I think she knows what those were and if she were ever to triumph. Play this game again. I think she would say like girls. Do Judge Moore people. Do Judge me for being a model. I'm not going to put that in my bio bio. I'm going to say I'm a daycare teacher like no one's afraid of a daycare teacher. I agree and I was. I was glad to see that she sort of recognized. That is something that I talked about. When we were talking about episode was that I felt like saying that she was a model coming out with what she thought was sort of Glam down picture picture but was still really like a perfect picture? Her being beautiful Like a little too strong and I think that based based on what I've seen on the circle people tend to prefer the strips down natural. The Sami Photo. That's a little bit out of focus. Focus that just shows like he feels like her yeah. I think Sammy made a really good choice. Her photo and obviously we think Mercedes did not and that's going to be. I think an issue down the line. I don't think Mercedes is GonNa last too along because of that because they're not really sure who this person is why they're using so many filters maybe something didn't really think about because she is a little older than the rest of the cast so maybe she doesn't have a great handle on social media etiquette and twenty twenty twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty so she would be like. Oh let's go for the filters let's do all this. That's not really what we're going for these days and I think uh uh things are kind of shifting to shebeens queen of view which is less influencers less like everyone being perfect and more like this is my daily struggle Google. You know what I mean so I think kind of going directions. Probably the better I dea in the show and because the trends were social media changing so rapidly. I think that's GONNA change from season to season what people are looking for what people are trying to avoid so that is pretty interesting. They're Shabani I feel like it was taking it too far into the other direction of like. Well I don't even have social media profiles it's like why are you here then social media basically he's GonNa say I think in this episode like influencers. He hates influencers eight magazine. Anything you hate. Commercials sals you hate. Television like influences are just a different version of marketing. That you know going along with what is happening in you know in the years. What's going on in our in our changing media landscape? There's always going to be marketing. That's just the way it is and this is just like a different version like it's much more nuanced. I think than just than just like. Oh all sucks. Yeah sure a lot of times we get. These highlight reels full of people in their lives. delake sorry I don't WanNa show you my depression like that's not what I wanted to portray everyone like. I don't WanNA show you my low moments and so as long as you go in understanding that. Hey this is highlight reel and like people are saying that all the time. This is a highly social. Media's just a highlight reel. Don't compare yourself. It's just like we're fine. Everyone's GonNa be fine. We're fine I actually just saw tweets up by Hamster Watch on twitter. WHO said That they did use the same building but they snuck in shots of various. US cities for the SEGUE. It's crazy it's easy. Why would they do that? I mean I guess like I don't know because it has is a very different field building wise through China so we were both right we were I love what I do. I do do all right so Alana is out and but here's one of the more fun things about the show. Is that when you were blocked. You have the opportunity to go and meet somebody before you leave. Leave the game entirely. This is especially on when they're catfish involved. Not Not not. So in this. In this instance but but this was still pretty interesting. I'm rob had asked me who I thought Alana was going to go and see and I said that probably either joey to see like Oh we were flirty or ah to question one of the two influencers that blocked her and it did seem like that. Was the the motivation here as she goes to confront. Sammy yeah I think that was the absolute right choice on her part. Choose only in there for a day. So she really didn't have a whole lot of time to form meaningful connections actions in a way that she would want to see joey over somebody who voted are out. Like I would want the answers to so I would absolutely go see San. I go see Antonio and I think going to see. Sami was the right choice. I feel like Sammy. Explain herself while and didn't put all the blame on Antonio which I feel like Antonio absolutely would have diamonds planning on it. Yeah yeah so I really I what what an interesting twist in a show that I was not expecting. I really loved that little bit. That they could go see one of the people. They the WHO voted the mountlake. What a great idea? That's so funny. Yeah I do. I do think that usually when when when they're confronted that feel like they don't. I usually say the real reason like I feel like we heard her and why she dislikes Alana like the skinny girls thing the pretty girls thing focusing on appearance errands but then when it goes to question her like she didn't say any of that I feel like You're always it's interesting to see the private reasons that people judge judge others when confronted what they then sort of translate that into. Yeah I could see I could see looking at a Lotta as somebody who has made her insecure throughout her life in just seeing the blonde and seeing the model and like this woman coming in being like. Oh my God I love my pretty girls. Only all we're all skinny and it's kind of like what are you doing but also like I can understand where Sammy is coming from in that and being a little unhinged hinch and being a little put off by that is there any losing scenario to them giving the explanation nation like at the end. It's not like all. The people who got blocked are coming back to vote. Are they know. So you could give the real reason and be like I was a little jealous us of you and I have people like you in the past. I've been means to me so I didn't really want you around you absolutely could i. Just I feel like people are usually not sort of. I'm willing to open up in that way. I feel like this is like there's almost an lucent situation for this to your one opportunity in life where it's just. It's not really GonNa have that much of a negative impact on you because if Sammy was admitting that two Lana it's it's not like the audience are coming in voting Sammy's of jealous. Or whatever it's true in the UK. You might have to worry a little bit. Because there's some audience voting in the film. Yeah the U. K.. Anything is a little more hardcore. All this talk about alliances would be demonized. So yeah we're that's just like a natural function of us reality shows and so finally there is some confrontation. But then there's also some sort of if I feel mad but then also like wanted to help in some way to contribute at all and so she talks about how she did have some suspicions about Rebecca because of the whole Chris thing not realizing that he was gay which was a big slip. Yeah the guy did love that from a lot of you know being like okay. I said my piece now. Here's an interesting piece of information that I'm thinking about. I would maybe like God. It's hard because you don't really want to help the person who just voted you out but you also want to just screw everyone else over right and again. Let's just like anything that you can do to contribute to the show that you're about to leave right. Yeah Yeah and then look. She can be right when she's watching this back and be like dude yeah in the UK version is is there more catfish people I think they like to keep it to around two catfish so so like they'll introduce new catfish fishes. Well I haven't kept track of like are there sometimes three catfish or one catfish. I'm sure there are but I think it's generally around that number it's a it's less than half of the people are usually catfish they like to mostly have real people and I am guessing that when and people are going through the casting process. They say that's their plan. And they kind of get cast based on that right like they're not told to fish I I haven't asked A. Ah I've talked to a couple of you. I haven't asked any of the cast members how this works yet. I think I've seen Some talk about like maybe how it works is that when you are cast or when you're applying or whatever you're basically asked like okay so this is you if you were to play as a catfish who would it be. And so then the producers might have a choice to be like. Okay Okay we want you to go in as the person you said you would catfish as or we want you to go in as yourself. I'm that makes sense to me. That's just kind of guests and I might have read it somewhere. Maybe right yeah and I like a like CBN's move to be Rebecca. Which is somebody he he knows in real life? It's his girlfriend. Cairns moved to go with Mercedes. Stadium is somebody. She doesn't know I don't love as much because I feel like if you know the person you can stay consistent with their character traits. What they're thinking what they would I would say and I feel like if you're completely making up a whole new person especially if you don't have a whole lot of practice being this person I feel like it's up pretty at at any point you don't you know it'd be hard to keep track? Maybe she has an open rain down everything she sang. Whatever Chris's move to have a notebook? He seems to be writing everything. Everyone's saying I love that. They can have pens and paper. I love that they can have books. That part is cool. I'm I'm interested to see where it goes from here. Though something that I've found is that the catfish generally trip up in one of two ways either they're just completely unprepared and they are very very unconvincing as the person they're trying to be or they are successful in in you know being that person or at least portraying themselves themselves to be that person but people tend to think that they're quiet and reserved and that they don't share very much and that's because it's a fake person that doesn't it's not real they don't. I have a lifetime of experience to tell stories and talk about themselves and open up and so it's harder for them to connect with people because they're connecting with somebody fake. Yeah totally a Holi. Yeah I feel like the best move honestly is to be yourself and changed certain aspects which I think is working for some other people here. Alright so we get some some status updates. Everybody gets to update their status Choubey is very excited about this and I was like man for somebody. They hate social media. He's really excited about like all of this stuff. Yeah so Chubias okay like this. No one's GonNa be mad it you know you don't have to pretend to be cool in front of me like I'm not that cool. I'm here on my day off doing a podcast casts about the circle. There you go Joanne Antonio getting a little bit of trouble because it feels like. They're being a little callous about the elimination the night before that. Joey is kind of like making a joke about it like ap to our dead Homie and And especially girly wanted to like. Well I think like hearing him say it I think he I think he felt it. Genuine life I feel like he wasn't trying to make a joke of it. But it definitely comes off that way. Oh for sure and then for Antonio to just kind of go completely sideways and be like Yo hungry like what should I make for lunch today. Okay where everyone's just like cupcakes. Breakfasts anywhere reeling still. Sammy's like oh my stomach is upset. Don't office from last night or eating something weird in carrying Lindwall. That's Karma that's Karma. What's Yeah I I think it also coming for lying about who you are carrying? I think it shows like that really shows. It was the already. Don't like somebody like it doesn't matter what they put in. You'RE GONNA find a way to not like what they said. And so we're going to see that. Sammy and Chris are going to start to bond a little bit as they have a private conversation and do Choubey and Joey are going to have a chat as well and they're going to bond and talk about skincare. I mean who wouldn't WanNa talk about. Skin care will say like quick. PSA for anyone planning on going reality television charcoal masks of any store where you're covering having your whole face is just like maybe something to avoid. You want to get all of your face different ways to do it then then then a mask like this like it's just why tread in that territory charcoal. Just cover your face like is for home time and don't it was on social media. Yeah and if you're being filmed with twenty four seven probably be a little careful. There's lots of masks in this world. I did love the issue. He was always pretty. He's a Bro. He's probably like working out putting on his face masks. So Antonio is going to have a chat with Mercedes. They'd they'd been flirting in the previous episode. And he's feeling he's feeling very confident Antonio always just full of confidence and so he's like all right. Here's the plan. I'm going to make sure that she knows that I had her back that I saved her. And that we're not for me. She might have been going home and therefore like she owes me. We're we're good and something. I talked about for episode. One is is that you have to be very careful I feel like when using taxed with being transactional I feel like people are on their guard a lot more. You're in a social media platform or via chatting than they would be in person when it comes to a transactional interaction If you're saying like I got you you you're going to get me to is just. It's just a little more obvious as little more blatant what the purpose of that is like. You wrote those those words you use those words for a reason and I think Antonio is not good at being subtle about this no no. He's not I think he made some errors in this because is he's showing his hands. Mercedes in so Mercedes is like Oh okay all right I can use this to my advantage or he might be lying to me about what actually happened there and he's just trying to manipulate me into believing this because Mercedes didn't know she was on the chopping block or hand wasn't until Antonio's that's something anything to her and so that would get my like. How do I know that Antonio actually entering the south and he's just trying to play this on Sammy and it's and it's clear it's clear mature the purpose of him telling her is like and you're going to get you're gonNA get my yeah like I? It's almost a little early on in the game to be pulling that kind of stuff into his biggest things was he. Didn't want to be in the top three or four favorite people in the game because he didn't want Mantra Qatargas beyond its back. Well he's kind of putting putting turn on his back because he doesn't know if Mercedes is going to go back to somebody else and say. Hey Sammy Antonio told me this is that true like is that I thought we were close. I thought we were good friends. We're curls and and now he's telling me this like who do I believe here very dangerous territory. I did like Mercedes says that he is her night. In fresh Jordan's I don't even wear Jordan's work done some people so so Mercedes basically is like okay. I'm going to play long because he clearly thinks that he has me. But I'm not going to buy into this. I'm not going to give him a high rating because he already already wasn't influence there he already has too much power. There are clearly other people that buy into this rating in high. So I don't want to contribute to that not entirely sure how I feel about this particular line of thinking of strategy. If he thinks he has you that means he is probably more likely to protect you if he isn't influenced her at the same time I think it is a rightful concern. That if she thinks that he has a lot of other people than it's hard to protect everyone and therefore maybe he won't protect you if he's an influencer so you have to be a really tricky game to wrap your mind around tricky. Don't know who's talking to who in survivor big brother. You can walk in a room in here people whispering and you may be caught your name or maybe somebody told you that they were talking about you but like you. You're in your own double. You don't know if somebody's talking to somebody else you you just have no idea in in the UK version again there. They were not as strategic and so they were very public basically about who they liked the most and who they were best friends with so far in the US version. It seems that they are a little more like a quiet about who they're true. Friendship relationships are and I think part of it has to do with that there are alliances and those are relationships that are not supposed to be public and so it's a lot more just accepted that you aren't going to be as public with your affection with your conversation. And that makes it much more difficult to know like where the pieces lie so crazy and then just a fluke of I think it was a rebecca starting conversation with Sammy Mercedes and I feel like Rebecca kind of stumbled into into some goal. Their early seeing I feel like Mercedes showed her hand in a way she probably shouldn't I can't quite remember Sammy Planet but I think she played it like probably as as well as she could have like. There's not a whole lot you can do when somebody saying. I heard you're throwing me under the bus. And how do you prove that it was happening or not happening. Yeah so yeah. So that was. Rebecca made the girls chat and conveniently not named skinny girls named just girls Dell's chat which way to go good job rebecca and so it seemed like Sammy was considering doing the same thing then Antonio did to her which was like. Maybe I should say that Antonio wanted you out Mercedes but before that could even happen. It's Mercedes confronted her. I and I did not love this from Mercedes. I think she came at Sammy. A little hot and D two. It's necessary yeah. And they they both did expose a lot of things that that was definitely Rebecca. Rebecca Crab seabourn burn burn. I typically. I'm just going to call them by their catfish named Heike calling him. Chaban in Ethan was like no that Chaban is the other I should be and I'm like okay. That's that's hard to keep Shibani. And seabourn he was just like. Wow ooh boy I I love I love him I think he has the best reactions to things. He's he's a fun character now. We're going to take a quick break for our sponsors and we'll be right back and we're back so let's get back to the show all right so we did get some Rebecca and Choubey Bonding Rebecca. He he loves Choubey Rebecca. They're gonNA continue. They have an alliance and then we get the Alana Goodbye message and this is this. This is something they did not do in season one of the UK show where one somebody was blocked. They got to see one person and then they left than the rest of the cast basically took it on the person that they visited. It's word whether or not they were catfish season two and in this season of the US we have a video goodbye message from each person as they go so so you get the reveal for everyone whether or not it was a catfish and so they discover. Alana was not a catfish and Joey is. He's just like which do you like better like everyone gets the repeal or just one person gets the reveal I I'm of Two minds of it. I mean it's with everyone getting the reveal. You do kind of get best of both worlds because you do get the first person's response and then also the video message but I did also like the paranoia of like still just not knowing for sure because when everybody now knows that Alana was real general the idea that okay well now to probably two of the remaining seven are fake and you can keep doing that math if you're if you're knowledgeable enough sure yeah that makes sense. It would have been almost cool to see if you know. Sammy said Oh. Alana came to visit me and then Antonio also said Oh alon came to visit me. This is what she looked like. This is what it was and then it would have been cool to see something like that and then having her video message like obviously if one person described one way or another way you figure out who's lying or whatever that's unnecessary game play but I just I think I'm glad everybody gets to reveal but I feel like there is some benefit. Only one person getting the reveal to imagine if that didn't happen Sammy. Sammy was free to say yeah. She came to visit me turns out she was a catfish was right to get her out. I'm sure right so that's not available but you do then get to see the reactions of people who are either relieved that they're they're real or super shocked that they are fake and in this case it it is joey who's like no no. She's beautiful what have they done. I hope they feel terrible. I am glad I don't have to spend any time with Joey over my lifetime. Probably you would not have gone to visit Joey no well. Joey has never been superfund of Antonio but now Antonio was one of the people who sent home his boo and and so he's GonNa come in. Real high is awful awful idea. This was on Johannesburg. He just has no chill so ever. Sure why are you. Why are you making an enemy here? In like like some of the things he was saying. Oh my God. How are you saying Chris? It's strange too because like in the UK version. They're usually extremely polite except for when they are anonymous and otherwise they're just like oh I just love you so much so this is pretty shocking to me immediately. Just like Hey Antonia media do you do you feel like a complete F- in Dick Right now. Yeah like what. What what? You're imagining like that. Yeah no no I would. I would shut down emotionally like I would die on the spot. If anyone ever came up to me and said something like that I was. I was truly flabbergasted and I don't believe they had any like one on one conversation prior to this so that's really coming in like a stranger comes up to you and says I hope you feel like a Dick Right now. You're like are you say who are you. I personally would cry but not everyone says delicate as high him all right. Well that was just so obvious they're gonna be arch enemies there's no rebounding from Thomas. What's good basketball joke by the way? Thank you totally intentional. It just doesn't make sense is to me in any like it just makes sense to ever try and have enemies in this. Like what is the plane. Yeah I agree We do get to play game. We have some games. Yes today's game is there wasn't some games. The Games are fun. This game was a little slow. There wasn't too much controversy here But but they're usually pretty fun. The first the first person was Tina. Turner in Chris's She's the Queen of Rock and she has the most famous legs. Famous legs Makes Sense Queen of Rock. I don't know honestly I don't I don't understand the famous thing. I don't know how to explain it but like when I heard that I was like I think it's Tina Turner is I don't know yeah. I like usually with a question like that. I'm like okay. Well maybe like the other straight guys won't get it but they all did and so I was like I'm just I'm just I'm just lost one. I'm sorry guys. Martina watch more youtube videos of Tina. I didn't know all the other ones though. Meghan Markle Paul Spiderman he says toby. Maguire made this character popular. Or whatever and Chris Listen Toby Maguire the name of a movie thinking of Choir Jerry Maguire. That's it was fun. I like these. I love to see the character moments. Anything Games like this is good for that. Yeah the Chris Helen. uh-huh worth ought not have from the prompts that Rebecca just says gorgeous just blue eyes could. He's so many people. Chris Guesses Frank Sinatra just like completely cementing him as an old soul because of course. Frank Sinatra's is the first person to pop into his mind and then Choubey just gets it on gorgeous blue eyes like. I watched the marvel movies but that would not have been my what came to my even. If you said of the marvel movies who has gorgeous Blue Eyes I would have been like. I don't know what color there is. I don't know either. I'm not even sure who he plays is. Yeah I would. I would get it off of like Miley Cyrus versus ex. brother-in-law Kris humphry fashion. I didn't know that they could have just door. I feel like he was trying to make it difficult because these were too easy. Yeah and then. Of course Henry Winkler out hard to describe to. I would've said Ed airy acting happy days. Jump the shark. You gotta be careful of saying things like happy days because that's the sort of thing that people like happy. It is an old show if you're playing a younger person or if you are you okay. So I feel like arrested. Development is more outside the box saying that I would where you'd say arrested development be like. I'm cool I'll watch restaurant I'd say Berry NBA. I watch berry well. You're much cooler than I am. Clearly we we. I don't know how these things were making. Michaels remind me literally fourteen direction that you the funding multiple direction. It might look over here over there. That was embarrassing. We also have new profile pictures which is pretty quick episode to. You're all your new profile pictures and pictures. I want a status update and I WANNA picture every single episode. If I'm not I want to an episode I want at least one picture at the beginning the opposite statement at the I want as much information from these people I mean. Generally they have like this. Plethora of these is multiple folders of multiple photos and they usually only get to show like three fifteen photos. I want them to try and justify everything everything like you better catfish right. And A in general. I think people really enjoyed the second photo. I feel like glare alarm without grace. People like Mercedes no filter SHUBAYS was adorable. Oh my gosh he's ever like it was very much like first year of university just returned home and taking a picture in your childhood. Rebecca had. It's like an edgy photo. With creepy words written behind her. Then love that one side of Sammy's however savy's was. Yeah a good choice side. That would be my first second third to forty five photo. It would be just. Does that for for somebody that was emphatic. -Ly saying absolutely never sent a naked photo of yourself. I was a little bit surprised. Honest all this shit if you yeah. If you've got it then why the heck not. I'm not complaining. That was it was I. I liked the I liked that. We didn't see the photos before they reveal happened. You're like me. She's like I'm going to show off my body. Probably oh just like in a bikini or something that was. I don't even know how to describe what she was wearing. I would say it was some scheer underwear on her lower half. I always very focused on that. I'm GONNA so I can't remember what she had cropped up. I don't think she was like full Bra. He can eat up. I think it was like a rob sitch. Yeah and she's also like my legs splayed Rebecca's responses Kirk work. You're close. They're gone and Joey is just like enamored Omega only Guy Joey. Such a little horn is so ridiculous but he's also like I'm posting. A picture of like people are so important to me like mom boy. Oy In this show you should ever post pictures with other people or is that just like not. Is that misguided people so that people think you're more real. Yeah I think think that's what you want to go for as much variety as possible consular photos people start to get suspicious or like. They don't like it very much. Because you're not showing enough sides sides of yourself so I think that generally photos with other people usually pretty good as long as they don't come off as too manipulative right. I think it was a great great great choice for Antonio to not go with the photo his two sisters because he was not like. I've never who's in a picture with my life that I'm also not as hot as if I just saw that photo without him him explaining what it was I would have thought it was him being like. Yeah and so Ebisu Antonio's second photo felt like was kinda similar to his first one USA his beard bigger but it was mostly the same. I felt like that was the worst. One yeah all they could say it was like. Oh he looks more mature and of course Joey was not a fan. Well Joey can enjoy. Has Some issues and Chris is going to post one all made up with a with a fierce look great. I think that's a great idea to if if you said what is true that you wanna see as many different size on this puzzle is that was a really good choice for him. Anything it might show Rebecca that like he is playing for the team. Maybe maybe you'll finally realize all right alert. We have a new player. Yeah I was excited to see how they they were revealed because Love Island or whatever or Exxon beach sometimes. They'll just pop the like hello. I'm here welcome. Everyone would obviously with. This can't do it. I would've loved to see everyone at the party having a live chat And then it would just be like morand enters chat never lose a heck is Iran. Like I would love to see that. I think that might have been a little more effective. Do Ed someplace. Great Point I mean you know whether or not they I think they do it in like different ways each time generally so Maranda the new player. She is also beautiful just gorgeous beautiful tattoos great haircut like smoking in high if I were on if I were in the building if I were in the circle and I was like I was me and like literally. Every he's single woman so far has been just absolutely beautiful. I'll be honest I'd be like at least two of the women are catfish for for sure. Because you don't cast all beautiful people and you know what I mean like really righty. And it's so Maranda says for her profile pictures. She wants to avoid showing her tattoos which I was like. I was actually not super solid on that just because I feel like the tattoos. Give her more of like an individual feel make her feel a little more real than she's so beautiful like when she's just posting laker regulars like non tattooed self. It's it feels like to like this. Nothing individual about this. I totally and I feel like you know. She had her tattoos. I feel like that could have been more grounding grounding in a common interest with Lincoln Tonio Tattoo to tell me the stories behind I feel like Sammy would be into a girl who has a lot of tattoos. Yea Joey who I feel like Joey might be the type of guy you don't put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari you know. I feel like he would say that. But ultimately he wouldn't in real I can look past Dick L. But then her second picture I felt like it was it was kind of far away. But you see the tattoos like like not in detail but yeah. They're they're really cute photo which I wanted her to post. which is the one she was? She ended up going with the bottom autumn. Right hand corner and I wanted to go for the top right hand corner where her hair was a little longer. She was in like a really cute chook. I love that one and I get why she. He wanted to go with the with photo with her hairpin little shorter because if she has too many lanes if you learn how to get to suspicious get why she with Alan but Alan was my favorite. Yeah I do think that. She chose her main profile picture. No makeup which is basically a different version of like no filter. It's it's something that people recognize and tend to respect like okay. That feels more real also. I'm not wearing any makeup right now. I don't know if this is just like my natural. Just Butler does does lipstick count as make up. Yeah okay anything where you even like slightly changing the appearance of anything but even a lot of lipstick sat are colored my list which seems counter intuitive counterproductive but to keep it even. Yeah even things out just everything email. They should be happy. You don't see all of the dark circles. I have right now. So Miranda talks in the circle and I didn't get as much a a little bit later but especially when she setting up a profile. I felt like she was talking to the circle like she was alimentary schoolteacher. She's like now what I want to do with my if picture is doing child. Yeah that's funny yeah. I'm excited to see how she interacts tracks the other people. I just don't feel like she has like the cutting edge on the other people have. They might able to take advantage of her pretty easily. I feel like she's could be trusting and very sweet young somebody who want on your side for sure but I just worry that she might be too trusting asking everyone and I wonder how the US players will treat new players especially as they're more strategic. I think there's a very easy to say like new players. We're not going to let in right but if you're already not trusting him. Some of the people true around Joey like please. I'll take forty five Miranda's Yay Joey. They're gonNA have a party again. Love Rebecca. He's like playing with his food and then the lights come on. He's just like they have today. I'd like you to dance. Everybody has always danced during the parties. Have told because I would not just default to dancing. No I don't think I would either have a couple of glasses of wine. Ghetto Komo personally orders. Got How sad that would that be like yes. I'll take a bottle of Tequila. I will be enjoying all of this is though all right. Well Jim I know in Tonio in the gym that do they like sign up for time slots or something like how are you can. Only only one person can like move outside of their room. At a time I think is there relocations to move out to me a rooftop terrace. There's the gym. I think there's in another room but I'm not sure but it's I think just those two or three and then of course to hang out but they don't go there freely just on their influencers all right so joey is going to after seeing the new photo of Sammy. He's all about it and so he's going to try his his his charm on her not as successful as it was with with the previous episodes like surprising to me. How often people like Joe? You're successful at flirting on the circle. And then of course in the next episode this is GonNa Fall flat here yeah feel this dude in the UK. It does well in this dude in the. US does not. I mean I I. It seemed like he was making a little bit of progress on Alana. I don't think so. I think that was gameplay on her car. Like really you're model. Joey's the one who really you know. I was just some gameplay from Alana. Okay okay well. If you're listening to this like lettuce not like I like everyone. WHO's on the circle? US is searching for a buck is because they want their name mentioned so Alana Please tweet me added strong underscore if that was real or if it was just like you. You're just trying to make friends. You were trying to social game. Thank you all right Sammy at. This point. Feels like she has Chris Antonio and now she also also feels like she has joey so she. That's what she says at this point Antonio is going to now flirt with Rebecca a little bit and Rebecca taste in real people because now to flirting with the catfish. Yeah Rebecca's like Oh. Oh you're buttering my biscuit. And this is something that rob brought up. In in the first episode recap which is he felt like it was a mistake to pick his girlfriend. Because what if people are flirting with you as your girlfriend talk a little bit like. It's weird that he's flirting on my face. And my girlfriend kind of especially becomes as pointed out like like if he if they like then meet outside of the show and he's like. Here's my girlfriend that you're flirting with. I don't know I see I'm maybe I just have different friend like audit those kinds of things. I'd be like yeah use flirting with my girlfriend. Because she's hot she's mine so if you like I'd be like taking it as a compliment. I WON'T BE GETTING UPSET ABOUT IT. It's true I think that it depends on the relationship that ultimately may or may not form between somebody like Rebecca Antonio. Yeah if they actually became friends it might be weird. You just reminded ended me. You are a Canadian yes I am. Yes I mentioned to Robert. I haven't my door it is. It is definitely need to make sure I mentioned to rob. That Alana sounded Canadian to me my wrong about that I see it I can see it. I think she's from totally Texas and she was talking and I just like a couple of times just like the sound of the sounds like big brother. Canada land like a little bit here and there Interesting I was GONNA ask I was GonNa ask you are Canadians. Allowed on this I don't know not you know I would have said no but then I was pretty I was a little nervous to say. Yes only because I wasn't one hundred percent sure if the circle was going to be on Canadian Netflix. Everything so I was a little nervous that we weren't going to get it and then when we did get it I was wondering like Oh. I wonder if there's going to be any Canadians Canadians on this. You know maybe that's just whatever but I know with Love Island. They were accepting some Canadians meetings meetings. Everyone yes Antonio by the way really proud of himself for his amazing flirting ability having flooded with both of the catfish then going to have one more game of the Miranda is going to listen in on or watch watch on I guess and only two questions come up that I that I remember and they were both just about having sex of course. Yeah so the the first one is I have never have ever had sex in public and Choubey says not yet probably not coming for everybody and then the next one was never. I've ever had sex with the same gender to which Sammy says. Yeah and Joey is just losing. My God like he's never met like. Oh my God. Oh Yeah. The women's like you both like intercourse with you. Then Mercedes is going to come out as well as saying like sort painting no comment wink. And then says she has pink and her flag Choubey is like I know what that means. I don't know what that means. What did they say? I wasn't totally clear on it. I guess it just just means like yeah like I think that's also at my life. Whatever I think that pink is one of the colors or that pink is the color? Maybe that was the confusion. And maybe I'm just not up my leg knowledge as well. Miranda really enjoyed the Mercedes contribution to the conversation and for the record with Miranda also saying that she would would swing both ways that means literally all three of the actual women on the show. That's I've never seen that before. ooh Awesome trope because like I found that the diversity on the circle was great. Yeah we have people coming coming from just like all over everything which is fantastic and what. We've all been asking from reality for like ten years. Now maybe it's different because Netflix isn't like your your big network or whatever but it's just it's nice to see some diversity and it didn't really feel like it was like it was like a focal point. I guess look at our diversity. Yeah like looking all the bisexual the people we have. No it's just like Oh we these women because they were fantastic and they just happened to be bisexual into so. That's our episode time. You had a good time watching these two episodes. I will say that the. How long was the second episode? Was it forty five minutes or was it the full. pull out what I didn't look let me say this look at PD patients anything about it. Probably not no. It doesn't the first persona did feel a little long. which is funny because I watched the Youtube version? which was fell too short was his fair? Yeah you know I was going to watch achieved version but then I just was like you know what I'll just wait for the ethics and I liked it and I think I will continue to watch it. I don't think I'm going in to make an effort to sit on my couch every single morning or evening and put the episode on. I do work from home and I always have like TV going. So I think that's more more of where the circle is going to be for me. Is that few show where I like. You know pop in on that.

And now, here's the guy who wants to know what happens to the people that call up Reema when she's trying to watch survivor. I am rob sister. Nino everybody. Welcome back to our feedback show for this week our merge episode episode number seven of survivor edge of extinction, and I'm very excited to have this a guest of back on the podcast with me. The last time I spoke to her we were working on setting up people to go on blind dates on Robin. Akiva, need a podcast. Of course. She is the co host of the legendary bachelor wrap up with Amy here. She is the great Haley strong Haley. How are you? Hi, robert. I am doing great. I'm so excited to be here. I haven't been able to talk about survivor, a very very very long time. I'd say the last time we did this. It was. Oh, gosh. I can't even remember his name now in millennials versus gen-x crazy guy. Paul Walker's Wachter. Wow. Walker? I hardly know. Yes. Okay. Well, Haley very excited to have you back here. One of the most popular personalities in all of our H AP here to talk about everything going on with survivor talk about love talk about snacks talk about sports. Stop. I'm flattered wherever wherever you want to go today. All right. Let's do this. Yes. I do have to say I think there is a a slight bit of confusion though, today Haley. Yeah. This is interesting actually a lot of confusion. Yeah. I think people are going to be really disappointed when they download this podcast and realize that me only strong Malkin just never played survivor. Have I been to a tropical locale before? Yes. Have I ever purposely starved, myself or money? Absolutely not. Ok okay. Yes. Earlier today, we got a question from Twitter from a from a listener, and I won't embarrass them by saying their name for for being confused, but they wanted to know Haley in worlds apart you and Joe won the chickens as a reward joke. Killed and cook the chickens did these survivor, chickens taste good. Do you think? The Joe will teach ream how to meditate practice yoga and find inner peace joke. Yeah. I can only imagine the tickets were tasty. After a couple of weeks of survey Shen, but I was not there to taste them. I'm very sorry hails appoint once again Haley, what about when you were at the combined tribal council with Aubrey in game changers. Did that remind you of what was going on last week on survivor? Yeah. It was a lot of confusion Hawkeye with long hair got voted out. You know, it was really upsetting for all of us. In this in this situation. I wasn't sitting beside Mike bloom who is cheering emphatically and also. Didn't Allie Lascher get some questions for you on this podcast dead? Yeah. You know? That's that's something that has I'd say plagues the RJ P universe for very long time. And I came up the podcasting ranks at this very similar time. And we both happened to be females in our I won't give it away. I'll just say twenty ish. So people have confused us for a while or set to us. Hey, I love you both. I can't pick who's my favorite and our answer to that is always don't pick. You can love us. Equal. But yes, but now people are confused is it that like my name's Hayley and alleys kind of like in that name sort of a little bit. Like, I I'm not sure sure either, you know, maybe it's also that they haven't placed the face. They just have a voice to go off of. So, but we look at will. We'll get it. Right. Eventually. Yeah. Please. Pick a cute photo of me for the whatever we're this is feedback show. We're just using whatever you put on Twitter that's going to be. That's what we're doing with these. Yeah. The picture. Okay. So I did watch the very end of know it alls. Who how you're announcing that I was being on the show. I just like hearing my own name on things, obviously who doesn't and the photo that was chosen was very interesting, and it was kind of out of context because this is going to be very small audience of people who even when I'm talking about sort of neat pointing on something. But what was like cut out? It was like a phone booths in London. So the picture makes no sense. And she's like pointing out like Kelly Wentworth or something. I don't know. Okay. Do you want us to change the photo full when we post the actual podcast? Yeah. Can you just use like my Facebook profile photo? Okay. I will I will Email Alex who makes the the pictures for this. And I will I will tell him what to use my instructors. Is it just use a person's Twitter photo? They're picking it out. And then we'll go from there. All right, but let's get into everything going on. Oh, you don't wanna talk more about my photo preference. I feel like that we can come back to that. If you're. If you want to talk about it more, but people are going to they want to hear some survivor talk at least in the beginning. And then we'll pretend it's a survivor podcast. And then we can talk about whatever later on but Haley, so let's talk a little bit about the of extinction. How are you feeling about this season here at the merge, you know? I would I listen to these podcasts I tend to be little higher on seasons than other people. I think it's more that I just don't have emotional availability to care as much as like at like the to how the twist or screwing things up and whatever, but I will say I am not completely in love with the season in. I've thought about why. And I think part of the reason is I'm very over bringing back a couple returnees and putting this season of newbies. Because then we lose a lot of those new characters, and that's the best part. I love seeing the new characters and sure I love some of these old people. I love Kelly. I love Aubrey. I love David. But. Pregnant pause. Yeah. But I'd like to see them on an all stars. I'd like to see them interact, but they just have such a leg up in the game that it just it just doesn't feel fair. Nido in this reality TV. Nothing's fair. Whatever I get it. But it just takes up a lot of screen time. And I think we have some really awesome characters in the season. We're just not getting Julia didn't get confessional toll last week. And it's like a month and a half. And you know, Aurora hasn't gotten a whole lot. And like I literally had to pull up a cast list for this podcast. So I can put names to faces and, you know, give names to people. So I just wish that wasn't really an aspect of it the extent extinction like my favorite thing in the world. But I'm fine with them trying to mess with the format of bitch just to live and things up. And I like being able to see the people who were voted out see them a little bit more. That's a lot of fun. I don't think the season is gonna fall high on my rankings a favourite seasons. But it's just hasn't quite grabbed me, you don't have literally have like an Alexsandr, Chester style. Ranking of the season's do, you know, I'm not a nurse. Okay. He's not gonna listen to this. He doesn't follow me on Twitter. And you've appeared on his podcast before as well. Multiple time times. Yeah. Okay. Maybe you don't fit in on the spreadsheet. But when you said it's unfair to have these returning players versus the new players nonetheless. The new players are running circles around the returning players at this point where you talking about just from the airtime perspective that and you know, coming into the game having three people who played three times played two full games before. That's just they don't have that learning curve that everyone else does yet. But it's not doing them any good that we saw Aubrey go out. And now Johnson so results based right? Look, I think that we've Finally I think crossed the threshold on reality TV we're for years that I think the argument was like well, don't do seasons that are mixed because the new players are going to just, you know, get served, but this time around that the returning players are really on the ropes where two of them are out and another one or two could go out in the next couple of weeks. I guess so I could be on extinction soon. I guess that's true. Why am I even complaining about now gal, maybe the reason why we're seeing so much from the returning players is because they're like the big primer characters, and they're not gonna be around for much longer. Possible that could be. Yeah. Anything can happen. Although if David almost feels like not quite a returning because the only played twice. Yeah. It's only the second time. So he's all he's almost a first time player almost rookie. Yeah. He's basically a rookie no sophomore slump so far for he's gonna be a third base for a very long time before and a hip injury. What does it back injury back? We'll do will knock you ask Pat about that. Because I am you know, a David Wright Mets fan girl is that why you keep having me on during David Wright seasons. Yes. Yes. Every time. TV's right plays. I know you're a big fan of you saw the picture of you with a cut out of David Wright. Right. No. That's Jose bautisa. But in my head it was right? I do have a mini stuffed doll of David Wright, though. Okay. Maybe that's okay. I wanna talk to you about Kelly Wentworth. Because as the co host of the bachelor wrap up you and Amy have had Kelly Wentworth on as a guest on multiple occasions to talk about your shared love for the bachelor. And you may have some insight into what Kelly Wentworth is thinking that the layman may not have. Yes. So I want to I want everyone to know that I was very hood on the Kelly Wentworth bandwagon. Just she was my winner pick and San Juan del sur that didn't work out super well for me. But because I showed that love for her followed each other and Twitter got to talking, you know, big fan of the bachelor we invited her to come on. I believe we are the last podcast. She was on before she went on second chances. She came on a campaign stop for second chances and did the bachelor happe- podcast. And then we had her in this week's other guests. Randy Bailey, come on and do a bachelor draft with us one year too. So Kelly, she is a very forward thinker, and she will do whatever it takes to win which was proved in the bachelor draft when her and Randy kicked Amy is asses from here to Fiji. No, are you saying? That they looked at the spoilers and did their draft that way is that what you're saying anything to win picked Lauren beef. I the most boring human on the face the planet. So to win you thought that there that was suspicious? You know? I don't know. Yeah. No. I know I'm gonna put my faith. In fact, they didn't look spoilers and he gives me. Yeah. They did try and pull a trick in which they were talking up. What was her name? Jasmine, I think she ended up being on like bachelor in paradise and ex on the beach years later tried to like talk her up in. So that any and I would choose her for our team. And then after we're like go we didn't like her. We made you pick her, you know, so they do have tricks up their sleeve. What are you guys like babies that if they talk about how good something looks? Then that makes you take it. I guess so I don't know. Okay. All right. So I have been trying to think about this all week long because based on what I saw on Wednesday night. I thought something happened in the episode that didn't make sense from Kelly's perspective, I could not wrap my head around. Why did she come into the merge? And then here comes Rick Devon's. She's not excited for him to come back. And then that turns into, hey, why don't we all target the people that are from our own tribe. So that we lose the numbers. So that we end up getting picked off when. If they could have kept their tribe together and pulled in Joe and pulled in Aurora than they would have had seven going into this tribal council. I wanted to if you had any thoughts on all of this. I feel like this episode really could have been ninety minute episode. There was a lot of weird little editing quirks. At didn't totally make sense to me one of them was I thought my DVR started late. But no, we really don't of you slam previously on later on when Wendy and Keith relieving edge of extinction island. I thought I'd like missed them. But it was really just like a weird jump cut and again with Kelly just as soon as Rick walks in. She's just like, okay. He like he's out like you said when they were trying so hard to keep everyone together. Just there's a lot of things that didn't quite make a whole lot of sense to me. So I think the problem is that the blue team the previous blue team turn green teams have no experience. Not voting each other. They didn't realize there was any other options habits, die hard. Yeah. Yeah. So I have been thinking about this. And you know, there has been some threads on Reddit talking about this today about how the clip that. We saw in the episode of Kelly talking about Rick coming back from extinction doesn't line up with a clip of Kelly that was in this week's secret seen so I wanna talk about that. And then use as supporting evidence for maybe another theory of how this all when you tell me if I'm ceasing to make sense at any point now, or when did I start going to play this themes? I may at some point maybe okay at some point. Okay. So here is the clip that is from the episode of Kelly. Talking about how she is not excited to see Rick Devon's return from extinction all the faces that I saw doing that challen. Devon's was the one person I thought. No like. I don't want him back here. Okay. So that was what Kelly said in the episode and a lot of us, you know, especially on the note. All also like, well, why didn't you want Devon's back at a edit anybody? Yeah. I thought Wendy was her new sworn enemy and regime and Chris who she thought was targeting her. And that was another person that she probably would not have wanted his Keith she has any love for key. But Devon's was they had that lovey-dovey tribal council. And now here he is back in the game. But here is Kelly's confessional from the secret scene, which is a little bit different talking about her watching this edge of extinction returning challenge. I read he just like one by one here, they come like giving me the death stare, and I'm like. Hell, no my worst nightmare. Couldn't get any worse like mardi minority. And now here come these people like, okay? So unless Kelly win worth's new favorite expression is. Hell, no. It's it seemed like that this quote was cut up a little bit. And maybe taken out of context. Now, I will say in the clip at airs in the episode. She does say she doesn't want him back. And so I think that this is that she is talking about Devon's on faith, and I saw doing that challen. Devon's was the one person I thought. No. I don't want him back here. So I think it is possible that she had a couple of different sentences in different interviews where she's talking about that. She doesn't want Devon's back, and they combined it with the best moment of Ohio. No this happens on reality. Tv I think that's probably more likely than she didn't want Devon's gone, and they completely manufactured this out of nothing. Yeah. This is still pretty crazy though. Like, this feels like a complete Franken by yell. Interesting. It's interesting and people caught it on Reddit. And there's been a lot of chatter about this today. But wondering on Twitter any earnings that I believe, and I don't have my social media segment in front of me. I think that the only thing that Kelly had said back on Twitter was that she had said something about like, you guys don't get to see everything. But I'm wondering if maybe an alternate view of the events that happened at the merge because again Kelly is a great player. I that if she's doing something that doesn't make sense. You know, we need to think about what what is she thinking? And I'm wondering maybe does Devon's come back from extinction island. And is he wants Julie talks to him and says, hey, we're not going to send you back is Devon's on board with the comma people and. Proxy David is going to jump ship and vote with them whatever they wanna do. And then are we seeing Kelly and Lauren scramble after the fact of knowing that Devon's is not with them anymore, and is Kelly trying to bring Joe onboard to vote out Devon's to save herself or Lauren or war dog after she sort of realizes that Devon's and David have already jumped ship. Yeah. That makes sense to me because the sewed sort of does it in the opposite order the episode. We see I like Kelly is like, hey, I gotta go after Devon's I take Devon's out of the game. I don't trust him. And I don't trust David. But I wonder if maybe if it was the other way around that maybe that could make more sense. And why then Kelly is is then instead of saying like, hey instead of voting out me or Lauren or war dog. Why don't we do a safe vote? Why don't we why don't we not Devon's out of the game? Because that's somebody that we can all agree on, and then at least Kelly feels like okay. Well, let me just vote out. Like, basically, the swing vote here that person that nobody is with sort of just like big Wendy at the last tribal council and Kelly feels good enough about that. And that's why she doesn't play her idol. Oh my gosh. Okay. My brain is hurting it. Okay. This episode just hands. It makes no sense to me. Yeah. I guess that. But I still just don't get why. Kellie, would try and go for Rick in this point? I don't know if she thinks he's already with comma. He's he's a number four the other side, she can at least open up a line of dialogue with with with Joe and Aurora, basically if she's going to sub out Devon's and David for Joe and Aurora as people that she's working with she and Lauren we're going to hold onto their idols vote vote. Devon's out vote David out here next. And then potentially get in good graces with Julie and the women of Kama maybe than she could get something going. I just think that maybe that's a alternative view of this that actually makes more sense from Kelly's perspective that she is not the person who is break. Being up the less sue slash monarch group. She's responding to the fact Devon's comes back from extinction and says, hey, I'm going to vote I'm going to work with the new people rather than go back with the group that voted me out. Okay. Yeah. That that makes total sense in Kelly is kind of been head to head with David through the season. And she has played with Joe before. And Joe has a bit more of a shallow game than David does. So I can understand why she'd rather go with him than David. So that's again. Maybe maybe that's what happened. Maybe that's not what happened by just think that that was a interesting way to look at it to at least try to make it try to make sense. A we have Kelly, you know, talking about Devon's that she does she does want him out. But then it's not that she he's not the main person that she's targeting. I don't think that she looked at that group from extinction. Ireland said that is the one person. I don't want back in the game. Right. Okay. Yeah. That makes more sense. Because the way it's presented in the episode. It just doesn't really come together. And maybe it will come together in other episodes. But a lot of this episode just just didn't really seem to quite fit. Now. Also, we've got a lot of extenuating circumstances here in this episode because not only do we have everything going on. We had this big edge of extinction competition, we don't normally have a competition in the merge episode. Then we go back to extinction island again later on in the episode, and then we have sort of all of the hysteria around demerge where Stephen going back to when he played in. The chances has talked about how like at the merge and that season he said, there's all these conversations going around like so little of what's actually being said is even being captured by the cameras, let alone shown on the actual TV show. So to try to now, you know, forty two minutes show, this is cut down to all right now. Explain everything that happened in this three days in a total of between the challenges and extinction island and tribal council. Take all that out of the equation. It's like you got about eleven minutes to tell me story. Yeah. Yeah. And that's a test of the tough sell. It's a lot. So sometimes they're shortcuts sometimes things that are out of order. And I think that you know, we're trying then just to do forensics to try to make sense of everything that's going on. Let me play a question for you. This one is for you from Patrick from Michigan has a question for you Haley. Hi, Robyn Haley. This is Patrick from Michigan. I wanted to know who made the dumbest decision this week. Was it the commerce six deciding devote out Joe over Kelly Wentworth was it. Kelly went worse, and Lauren deciding to target Rick Devon's or was it rob and kiva who somehow decided that the Batman theme song was better than the Scooby. Doo theme. Song will love to hear your thoughts. Thanks haley. Do you have any thoughts on who made the dumbest decision this week? I think it was you choosing me for this time. I'm just kidding. I did not love learning Kelly's bid to get David or Rick. I am a hardcore leli STAN. But I just don't think that was the right decision for them. I think instead of trying to make the plan themselves. They should have been trying to get in on the other plan. Just show that you know, I'm willing to work with you, whatever you want. We can work together we can make a plan together. Instead of just being like, hey, let's vote Rick. And then that kind of looks sketchy because it's like, oh, well, why are you trying to vote a somebody who was originally on your on your try? So you're saying they should go to come. We saw them doing the episode and say, hey, what do you guys want to do tonight? We are on board for whatever you guys wanted as opposed to. Hey, why don't we take out Devon's? Yeah. I think when you're in the minority you don't wanna try and call too many shots because then. Then the majority is gonna look at you. And be like who do they think? They're. Yeah, you're right. That is a classic survivor mistake when somebody who does not have that much power tries to, you know, push an idea that they do not have the goodwill to be able to get across. Yeah. And it's not like they prove themselves as like challenge beasts, really, and you know, in the past in as good as I think Kelly and Lorne both going to be an individual challenges. Like. Really want? Somebody like this on our team who doesn't really have a whole lot of power anyway. So if they're not super willing tour with us, and what's the point in having them along right that Kelly Lauren come into that situation. And they really are not bringing anything to the table in terms of like, they don't have the numbers that they're saying like, hey, let's just vote out. A maybe had they said, hey, let's vote out David. Maybe that's something. Like, hey that they want to get out a returning player. Maybe that's a little bit more exciting. But Julie did seem to be very much against the idea of sending Devon's back to extinction island. Yeah. I really think it's just like not the best move to go into a situation when you're down on the numbers. It'd be like here are all my cards. Will you want to you you want to know what the other people are thinking like do they want to get somebody out from your tribe or do they want to get some the somebody from their tribe, which they did? So it's like they almost. Made it worse for themselves. Because now they weren't even on the right side the numbers, and they expose their issues with their former tribe, and it kind of just, you know, exasperates exacerbates exasperates. That they don't have anyone else. Haley. I'd love to get your take on the person that teed go home in this episode. And that was Mr. Joe and glum how do you feel that Joey amazing is out here again at the survivor merge? I am bored with Joe board with Joe listen. We had four seasons of Ozzy. We had three seasons of Malcolm. Who is a better more exciting version of Ozzy three seasons of Joe who's just like another Ozzy? So that's never been my favorite player. The challenge. Beast don't totally interest me. I love the people who are really good at the social game. Her really good at making friends, and we're Joe just like it's like he doesn't even attempt to play the social game. Like, he's only cares about the challenges. I think he kind of proved that in this episode when and his tribe member who definitely has a name that is run came. Came and asked them. Hey, what are you thinking tonight? Joe's like mono. I'm pretty busy painting flagrant now. Play that clip from episode because I really did enjoy it. Here is Joe working on his art project. And here comes wrong, buddy. What's the plan? You go follow those and make sure not on the chuckling. Follow those Nord's. Like. Okay. I loved hey, buddy. There's a lot of gold in this tiny little clip is there. Nobody. And then Joe. He doesn't even have a word. He just literally is just a sound. Yeah. And then let me play the part where Ron feels like the Joe mayday big mistake. Make sure not tonight. Okay. Hope not. Yeah. Just like, whatever you think, you know, I truly could not screaming word of when I was saying, and I get mad at my long term boyfriend Ethan often for mumbling through sentences, and I feel like I would just get home. I'm going to start. That's a great one. That's a great weird insult. Yeah. Hey, I wonder if Joe perhaps, and I said the same thing about Wendy last week when Aubrey said to her like, hey, so what do you think about working with us and Wendy was sort of like a giving her a what what do you mean work together? You know, do you feel like is Joe perhaps a not great lion? Not great liar. Not great liar. And that Joe is already been approached by Kelly win worth. And so he's already on board with the plan to that. They're going to split votes between devons and David. And so that they're not telling the comma people about this, or at least the that the maybe they think that the comma women are on this with Julie and Julia and Victoria, perhaps. And so they think that they're part of something some other plan that Ron is not involved in is job just giving Rana brush off. Off if he is that's the worst brushoff ever. It's not a good brushing who's go phone. Moon beach. I think we're thinking someone on what's what's the tribe? What's Kelly and less sewer or former money former Monaco current lessees rights? Why wouldn't you just say, hey, we're seeing someone from there who would be your choice those four. Yeah. Yeah. Back on him. You always want to turn it back on the other person. You never want to be like, hey, definitely this person. You always want other people to say that to you just go with the flow, everyone just needs to chill out and go with the flow and present some option. Hey, what about those minority for easy to pick off? And then we can go through to Cam. No champ. What am I don't care? What? Comet. There's a lot of words. Comma. Stephen dish back. I love comma, even just beggar they could turn back into college. And be like, well, let's just wait and get those four who do you think we should start with with those four? Do you think anyone would have an Idaho? Do you think Rick should you know, should we give him another chance or you more freight of Cal just kind of like say that rather than one? And maybe Joe Joe wants to be a straight shooter with everybody. But the thing on survivor age played two times, and that has not worked for you. You gotta dry you. Stop painting the sign for fifteen minutes and I dunno play survivor instead of project runway do you like the pain Haley. I don't like painting. My home. Was the worst experience of my life? I'd have to say why because I'm very impatient. And it just takes longtime do doddle in arts and crafts, occasionally, my mom didn't like for me to have paint because I was a messy child. I know that's shocking for money. I'm more of gosh. I don't know. I'm not that great thing. So I never really got super into painting. Okay. Let me play another voicemail for you. And this is another question about Joe, let's go to Bobby. You'll rub yo this is AVI and williamsport, and I just wanted to Bill if by any chance that though if you get an update on how you Bob is feeling after four chill. We got a live sided as the other night. Thanks a lot. Look the podcast for. Don't worry about my mom, Bobby. Okay. He's worried about your mom. But that is a good question. Because as anybody who's a longtime listener, the podcast knows my mom is a huge, Joey amazing. Stan her all time favorite survivor and Haley, I thought that it might be fun. If we could do a check in with Roseanne sister. You know, it's see how Joey amazing nation is holding up at this hour. I would love nothing more. Okay. We're gonna we're gonna do this live. Okay. Here we go. All right. We're calling calling my mom's house is she going to answer is she see your name pop up on the screen, actually answer. Okay. Captaining? Hello, mom. You are on rob has a podcast with rob sister. Nino and Haley strong. I am had low Haley so nice to meet you as well tickled pink. I am tickled pink. The honor is all mine. Okay. I got a text from my mom yesterday that she was very sad yesterday morning, and I called her up, and I said, I don't want to hear anything about your thoughts. Let's let's do it on the podcast. Let's go ahead. And let's let's talk about it. And they kind of a voicemail that people want to know how you're feeling so mom, we're talking about Joe Anglo, and as the voice of Joey amazing nation. What's going on in the background? The humidifier kind. I'm in you are temporary office. Okay. All right as as the voice of Joey amazing nation. Can you can you tell us how you're feeling at this hour? Well, do you say it was a tough blow kudos to the survivor team for the for the editing. They did on the vote itself on showing the opening votes. It's like, oh, this is amazing. Nobody voted for him. And you know, you know, how gullible I am. So I almost choked on my dinner has the Joe votes finally came to be and it was it was devastating to me. Because I thought I'm watching him say, I blew it. Yes. So and then as as he was walking off on the beach headed for godforsaken extinction island. I said, wait tried. He's gonna come back. So that that is the shred of hope that I'm hanging onto. Okay. Overall better. I'm feeling better. How do you feel like Joe has done this season up until this point? Well, he's he's physically. He can't help it play a great game. I mean super competitive, you know, he's got he's got all the right moves. That's exactly what he talked about was going to make him for target. Do you feel like the Joe did anything wrong as a as a Joe fan? You feel was there anything that? He was doing this season. You felt like I think he's making the wrong move. I think he was he was so afraid of stepping out into the limelight. And you know. He he said, I don't I don't want to be a coach they're asking me for advice. But I don't I'm afraid to give I think he just instead of living in the moment. He he was held back by his fears from his past two seasons. Mom, who do you? Hold responsible for getting Joe out of the game. It seems like everybody. Seems like everybody are you going to rate them? All emails saying how mad you are. You just gonna comment. I know we as as big fans of rob has a podcast. I know I know. We like to keep things politically, correct. And no mean-spiritedness. Okay. You won't go on Twitter and go after all these people, right? Not even under burner account. That would be probably I, you know, I'm forgetting his name right now, the guy that was, you know, talking to him and assuring him that Ron I would tell you. If it was you Ron Clark. Thank you that one. Okay. That's son of a gun that day for Ron Clark. Tough tough afternoon for a Ron Clark said it was it was inconceivable that they had this would have this opportunity and not take advantage of it. But I I'm sure you know, the editing was was done to hold us in suspense. And and they had me. So that you don't fault them for making this move. Like, you think it was the right thing for them to do no matter how broken your heart is I I don't think, you know, we're past the merge and now he's got to go. I hear that. I hear that. And if he was in one of my favorite players, I'd be saying them. Don't you can't you know, you never know when you'll have the opportunity it was it was he was he was in the in the. The challenge to you know, just to wonder last few and then that costs the wind came. So. Yes, you the other players were were doing their thing. Mom, what is it about? Joe that you've seen, you know, five hundred some odd people play the game. What is it about? Joe that has really spoken to you. Is it that he represents everything that rob is not? Yes now. Absolutely. Not. I absolutely not. He's just I don't know. He just seems to be he just seems to be we'll heart. He wants to win, but he wants to win fairly and squarely. He's very physical. And he knows it, but he wants to he just want. He wants to win on his own merits. He doesn't wanna trip anybody to get to the finish line. I know he cares about his family, and he's just a pretty much every season. There's that you know, there's one person that just touches my heart. No, Joe is dating another survivor alumni. Sierra Sierra, Don, Tom. Yes. Yes. And you know, who that is. I do. Okay. You remember? And you think they're a good couple on. Yes. I I don't know. She I you know from the game that she played. She seems a lot a lot a lot different from him. But I'm to question him. Okay. That was just you know, sometimes I understand that people are on the show that that take on on an identity. That's not true of their character. I right sometimes. Yeah. So all right. So what is your confidence level that Joe will be able to return from extinction island? Oh, I am. I'm going to say I am ninety nine percent. Certain will and fell to comeback. Listen, they come back, and they do another challenge who's going to beat them. Okay. So you're really just putting all your hope that Joe is going to come back from you're not leaving any room. To be disappointed because what happens if he doesn't come back. I'm not I gotta put the good karma out there. Yeah. And now he he's gonna come back with an ax to grind. We we'll see a different side of him. Maybe they've pushed him. Okay. If he has some sort of a villain turn if he's if he starts breaking bed. Will you still like him? Yeah. I'm gonna sing because I'm going to. I'm just going to assume. He's saying now, he's playing a bad guy part? But he's not he's not going to. He's not gonna do anything that his family's not going to be proud of him for in the end. Okay. I think even he realizes he's he's got a he's got to get just a little bit tougher hill. Did you know this whole Joe Beck story, which one about how he's does it all for his family? I didn't really, but I could only soom about this character type loves doing stuff for their family. So story check. So he does it for Sierra doesn't for Sierra. Mom. How do you think Joe is going to hold up on the edge of extinction with reams? I think he I think he's going to be charming. Okay. He can win remover. It's going to be step one is to ingratiate. Everybody with him there. He's going to be it's going to be a new day. Yeah. Okay. So he's going to win over everybody on the edge of extinction. Then he's going to come back. And do you think the Joe will come back and win the game? I I'm going to have to say, okay. 'cause I gotta believe. Yeah. I have to. I mean, it's it will be a herculean effort of, you know, could could somebody win every challenge or, you know. Yes. I I mean, if if he goes to tribal again. Yeah, he's out. And would you say then Joe's win would have an asterisk on it because he has been voted out went to the edge of extinction before he won. Would you think any less of that win now? No, I would I would think I would think he's a true champion. Okay. Haley, do you have any questions for Roseanne sister, Nina about the edge of extinction? I don't think so I just wanted to say what a big fan. I am of you Roseanne. A long time. And every time you come on the podcast gets so excited. Oh, we thank you so much. I enjoy I really I really do. I mean, of course, I've got I've got a vested interest in this. But I truly am. A fan of the game. And I I learned so much more from listening to the podcast because this is sue survivor know, it all meet survivor knows nothing. No, listen to every podcast. No. I listen to the recaps. No, no, no. I can't listen to every podcast does. Yes. Okay. My mom. My mom often asks where she could listen to my bachelor podcasts, and I just say, please mom, just don't I'd rather. You know, listen to my bachelor podcasts. Oh, you don't have the same. You don't have the same guidelines as rob nothing. No prefers prefers to keep it PG at best. I guess that could be one of the reasons why no I do enjoy. I do. Enjoy listening. To you know, if there's something special interest all tune in. But when I'm on a long walk. I like to listen to the. The show from the night before the know it alls. Yeah. I missing a missing the executive you after podcast. Yes. But it it's kind of like he's walking with me. So it serves two purposes for me. Okay. Mom, is there anybody that's really getting under your skin on this season. Anybody? That's that's really getting on your nerves like Troy Zan. I'm not to that. Because I feel like there's still so many people. Yeah. There's a lot like when when Trump was reading the boats. It was really the people. No. I don't think I don't think we see any one person. That one I tell you. There were times Wendy is getting with getting on my nerves. But I think she has she's really extended herself lift the last few shows. Okay. Mom, is there anything else you wanna say about Joe Angouleme or the edge of extinction or rob is podcast. Rob rob has a podcast is always. Well, we phenomenal entertaining. One of the best. The season is has been. This twist is on is a good one. I mean, it's why survivor so great that it just keeps reinventing itself and you never feel like oh this again. So I I am enjoying the twist, and I don't know. I I'm not sure if I got voted out I wouldn't be right on that boat. That's taking me back home. Everybody is so brave. Mom, how many hours would you like a postseason interview with Joe anglin to be what are you don't want to wear them out? Stephen interview would be of an oven. Our would be one just one hour. Yes. Because you know what? I'm sure he doesn't like to talk about himself ad nauseam. Okay. All right. We'll see if he can do it. I've never gotten into, you know, sit down for an interview other than when he called in when he got boated out. I maybe shine. Maybe maybe exactly what I say. You know, it's I for somebody somebody like that who's you know, a little he'd rather be physical than than chatty. Yes. Maybe he maybe he's avoiding that. Okay. It may you gotta take it easy on them. All right. We have to get back to all of these feedback questions. But could you just give one one last piece of support to all the other Joe fans that are out there? Let's not give up hope keep smiling and he's coming back into work. All right. Mom. Thank you so much so nice to talk to you. I appreciate you making some time to Chad. Afternoon. And I love you. Mom, you too, sweetie. Take care. All right. Bye. Bye. All right. Hailey there, you have it Roseanne sister Nino. And yes. Taking a very well. I thought she's ninety nine percent. Sure. He's coming back. He's win. Yeah. That's fair. That was a preseason thing. Right. Like, oh, they built this the season for Joel happen. And you know, what story's feeling like is checking out here. I don't know. I don't feel like I made you my winter pick because of that. But I don't feel like that. We are on the trajectory now that I mean based on the story we've seen so far. I mean did Joe really get like the falling hero. Ed that Joe was very under ended for the first seven hours of the show. I completely agree with you there. Are you? Sure, you want the editing people to be mad at you. Do I want the people to mid me like the people who edit the show I'm saying like the people who get mad when he talked about the ETA. Well, I'm just saying that I feel like that this it doesn't worry wise this season doesn't feel like that. This is season. Is Joe's story now maybe that could change where maybe the focus of the show starts to shift a little bit when he's on the edge of extinction. But I feel like that. But is that because his tribe literally, not a single time went to tribal council. So we didn't really get that post challenge. Condo with him. Okay. I wanna talk through a couple of other quick things about Joe angle Lum and this week's episode. Let me play you another question, which is the little conspiratorial about Joe in the challenge. And this is one from Jill in Detroit Joe from Detroit here, I had a question about just performance in the immunity challenge. I review the tape a few times. And I think that he threw the challenge you see him look at that jazz. Make a big side shrug his shoulders and then do a berry community theatre type wobble. Like, he's going to lose his balance and his statue falls. I would love to hear what you think about this theory. Rob was Joe stupid enough to throw this shell. Enj-? He did say that he wanted to do something different this season. They okay. Haley. What do you think of it is this crazy talk is their legs to this? I love a conspiracy theory. Here's the thing. I just don't think Joe has it in him to not try and win everything. Humanly possible would feel like he thinks that throw a challenge is, you know. Not noble, or you know, not how you should play things anything. Joe? I don't want to give them a whole lot of credit. But I feel like he is smart enough to know that if he loses a challenge his name is going to just be out there. No matter what. So it could be bad khama and Joe. So I don't know. I so I went back, and I did look at this after we got this phone call from Jill and listen to Jeff describe the action of Joe ultimately going out Joe is been very steady. Aren't no signs of a problem. Now now. Trump's nowhere. Daddy, and we're down to okay now. It's possible joke could have just been absolutely no problem in drop. Suddenly but Haley varied about passing out, maybe. But I also want to add that David Wright when out right before Joe. So I think that David ends up getting two there were four people left and then David goes out. And now if Joe is on this plan of okay, we're going to split the votes between devons and David Wright. It's possible. He could have just been waiting out David Wright in the challenge. And then say, okay, David Wright is not going to win immunity. So let me give it to somebody else to keep that target off of me. I do love this theory. A now I'm being convinced. I'm very easily invincible. I like it. But I just interested anyone else. Yes. But Joe just he just doesn't give off the vibe that he would ever throw challenge for any reason whatsoever. Yeah. It would be out of character. But we did see earlier this season, and Stephen, and I talked about it where Joe and Eric trading off in terms of like throwing rings in one of the challenge. And Joe had it set up where he wasn't gonna hit the winning shot where I think that he was at least thinking about these things where he didn't want to be the person. Who is like Joe does it. Oh my God. Joe? So I think that he may been thinking in those terms, but it does seem a little bit of a stretch to think that he's throwing challenges. But maybe when we had that one hour interview at the end of the season. This is a good question to remember to ask him. Yeah. I do let this theory. Okay. I'm just not not totally sure. If I buy into it yet me neither. But I think it's fun to talk about. All right. Let me play a question. From Meghan was a question about Joe. Hi, Robyn Haley, this is Megan from wealth on -tario Canada. I have a question for you Haley. What are your thoughts on Joe's spectacular hair in that tribal council? I feel like. I should come up with some island haircare program and make millions or maybe Joe for the next bachelor. Thanks, okay. So Haley, what do you think about Joe's hair and Joe's look overall the hair is getting a little long little. Yeah. Men or women. I don't always love like super super long hair. And maybe because I'm very lazy, and the upkeep seems like a lot and because his hair so curly. I would think that that would be very hard for him to keep. Not a complete rat's nest like my hair's Mary street, and my hair always ends up like knock great by the end of day, or if not washing my hair, so Joe is working some Urals out there. I don't know what he's doing. But his hair is beautiful. It's shiny. It's long. It's luxurious. I would absolutely buy some sort of hair care product. If Joe advertised at what would they call it? Oh my gosh. What a what a trying to think of some sort of fun. Can we come up with some sort of a marketing campaign for the Joe Angouleme hair care products? Yeah. It's a lot of obviously, it's very coconut oil base. Product. You know, are you looking for an amazing hair day? That really holds up to any competition. It faces. Maybe a could it be some sort of like anti dandruff as well? Where maybe you could have like some sort of like menthol to it. I now have to have you know, my little little Tingler is going off you will. Yeah. That's how you feel it working that was a strength. Give me a job here product that I can get behind. Okay. Look, I think that this could be a really a good jump for Joey amazing after survivor and shadow to southwestern Ontario. Okay. All right, then let's segue and talk about a question you want to talk a little bit about the people that were on the edge of extinction who ended up walking off this week. We saw up to when Wendy and Keith who ultimately left. They will not be a part of the survivor jury. Haley, did you blame them at all for raising the mast? No, I think this whole like every part of this little situation is super funny to me like they were so excited that they got a chance to get back into accent extinction. But when they got to the island there like, you know, what never mind. Wind and like, do they get to go on a jury trip by themselves or because no one's no one else is really like going to to live in Ponderosa. Like do. They just stay up Ponderosa the whole time. Like, I just have. I think they'll say upon Rosa. Yeah. It was funny. When I went back in watched the episode again before we did this that Jeff talk to Keith on after the edge of extinction challenge loss and wanted to know how how you was feeling about everything king. How do you get through extinction? Oh, like you live by moment by moment. You take step by step in that masked becomes everything that you wanted. It becomes the food that you want it becomes a bed. And I'm so proud that. I did not give. The one takeaway just the one thing that Keith is super proud of deadlock didn't give he did not give up like I think that that keep Jeff really screwed Keith up by giving him the chance to go back. My favorite part. Was that Wendy wasn't even there for like, twelve hours total? Yeah. And then she was like, you know, what not for me? Michael. I've made a terrible mistake. And they just wanted out. They called it buyer's remorse. Yeah. Fair and reasonable. If I got back there to be like, you know, not for me. I wouldn't go and survivor to begin with because I'm very delicate. But do you consider this acquit? Or is it just a function of what this version of survivor is I don't think it's a quit. But I think it's sort of like a tap out. If there's any sort of like, I I've had enough. Thank you. I it's not a quit voted out. But like instead of like, you know, struggling for some chance like they're they're not going to get back in the game. They're like what's the point here? Yeah. So I don't say I think it's different than a Quaid. I'm not mad at these guys. But it just was funny that that was the one thing that keeps you could hang on just so much of this whole extension extinction island thing is so amazing to me like reim- is on the jury like how how wonderful is that you want a renewed type character on a jury because you get those whole areas like subtitles of comments they made, you know, and we lost so much. When we when ream one out I and so to have this extra remiss to the season. Oh, it's wonderful. You know, love rim. Yes. Of course. Not I love him. How how do you think? Green felt I would like to hear an impression of ream realizing that she made the jury even though she got voted out for. Due to find out that I made the jury after like, I've watched this show like all the time. And now I go from being the first boot to being on jury. Like, are you kidding me? Man. Are you kidding me? How do you feel about Joey amazing getting voted late? So why won't kid Kelly brick in wet worth get voted out? Dude. Do you think she says dude more than that guy from Guatemala says man? Oh, judd. She could have a dude man off. It was men. He said, right? Or was it? He said man, she says she says, dude, nobody says sentence and ends a sentence with dude. It's beautiful Jeff s ream how she's feeling after her time on the edge. Watching this for eighteen years my favorite show. This is a no talking don't call me. This is the kids come watch this. It's family time. Like, this is the dream and voted out. And then I end up in how and I get sucked. But I couldn't raise that mass. I'm proud of myself. Yeah. She's doing dude in one man. So. And probably I think like six or seven lanes in this episode. Sadly, it was wonderful. I'm fine with these people getting voted out and just being on the jury give me an entire season with the jury like I I don't care. I don't let's do it with mazing. Let's do it. So Haley were you on the edge of your seat during the return of the edge of extinction challenge? I was I I was trying to be like cool and tell me like whoever comes back. It's fine. Whatever no big deal. But then when Wendy was so close to winning. I was oh my God. And then when Christmas close to winning. I was oh my gosh. And then when Rick was so close to winning. And then that music started. It was like oh my gosh. Yes. Amazing. Like, I was so excited. I was glad Rick came back. I feel like we didn't get quite enough of him in the in the pre merge, we didn't get a lot of character moments, which I feel like Rick could have a lot of so excited to see him. I'm back, obviously, I would have loved to see Aubrey bag re would have been a lot of fun when he would've been a lot of fun. Chris is there too. Did you think that Chris had a shot and it looked like he got his knots done? He was right there. No. Because if we're, you know playing the well like has Joey we really had a story at the season. Like, not really neither is Chris. No, Chris got held up that he had to untie thirty nuts that were given to him by Keith. But he was able to make short work of those not taily. I know has his all three he can get you on this. Whoa. Wonder why has its moments? Yes. And then yes after that, one of the female survivors said. Haley, which female survivor said that. Julia. Julia final answer. Yeah. Aurora Aurora Rohrer called Chris wonder boy wonder boy has his balls because she didn't know what Chris his name was. Yes, I think she probably knew she probably knew wonder, boys. Real name also Keith needed to assign his disadvantage to somebody. And Jeff asked him who are you going to give that this advantage to who did you decide to give those knots too? I'm going to find this terrific Hawaii over you. How did Chris get the nickname, Mr. Goliath? Have you seen those photos, Florida? Fresno has this three he can get you on this. They were free. That's for sure. Mr goliath. I am. Oh boy. Oh, Chris a fun and exciting time you're having here. We play you. Another question about Chris. This comes to us from one of our listeners this is from Kathy from Canada. Hi, Robyn Haley, this is Cassie from kin. I just wanted to know what you think the percentage chances that we see Chris Underwood on a future season of bachelor in paradise. Thanks love the show. Okay. Wonder what is right would would crispy good for bachelor imperative does he bachelor in paradise material? Yes. He is amazing bachelor material get him on the bachelor make him the bachelor the next season bring him on background paradise. When relationship inevitably fails perfect or the bachelor one why he's hot. Yeah. That's the only criteria. He's kind of planned. Right. So you can. Put any sort of like personality on him that you want really. And he hasn't had any racist or homophobic tweets coming out that I know of which is not always the case for back testi-. So with the bachelor in paradise analogy that I've seen people compare like is the edge of extinction. The bachelor in paradise to what's happening on the main house of the bachelor on survivor proper. I would say not because people actively want to go to bachelor in paradise. I don't think people really want to go to edge of extinction that bad. It's actually I'm paradise is for the people who didn't make a super far and their season. But they still want fab fit fun box sponsor, shed, sitter, Instagram. So they go there, right? I don't really feel like on edge of extinction. You're going to get fit tummy sponsorship or anything like that. What would you think of the edges of extinction as some sort of like survivor off season programming, Allah, a bachelor imperative like the person who survived the edge of extinction? They will cast the they'll stay in Fiji. And they'll be on the next season of survivor. Kind of like on repulse drag raise like Vanessa vandy Matteo got kicked off the first person last season. And now she's back on this season. Sure. You know, what I'm talking definitely for. Sure. I want like a side show of edge of extinction like top chefs gosh, pop chef has last chance kitchen. So I feel like we can have a nice little web series of how do you say it so many times extinction? I mostly say extinction island or the edge. Yoi? Can I call the? Yoi? He'll you off on the edge. We're saying I'm saying because obviously can't say extinction. Okay. Let's see that edge. All right. Yeah. Give me the show. All right. Then let me give you another question about the people on the edge. Here is one from Heather g Iran. This is Heather Jeep from Tempe. As e I was hoping you could clarify the rules of the jury this season. So no matter what are we going to end up with a thirteen person jury, even if someone raises the mast or multiple people raise the mast. So if Keith and Wendy had just stuck it out an extra day or two and extinction. Ireland would we have had pre single cast member either be in the finals or on the jury dude of crazy. This room. So I would say yes, I think everybody would be on the jury. Yeah. I know a lot of people coming into the season and were mad and or upset and or confused as to like how is the jury going to work. So the people of extinction never gonna go to tribal council and see what's going on. So I love that. They solve that problem with everyone. Who was there? It gets to go on to be on the jury. I love it. I love it. It's so great, and yeah, sure people are going to come to me and be like, well, you know, remember playing with anyone else in the game. I don't care a truly do not care. We get ream jury shots be happy about that. Should be great with everyone being on the jury. And if you if you leave if your, you know, your come year, the fifth person left you put up the white flag will then you're on the jury. That is the crazy part where you could go like thirty two days in the game. And then you get voted out. And then because you don't want to stay on the extinction island. Then you're off the jury. Yeah. It means is Rian going to get more money or she's still going to get like, I like, I personnel money. I will say that for ream that this was another tough blow in a season of tough blows for ream that the two lockdown jury votes. She had just quit the game this week. That is pretty lame. That is pretty lame that if anything I've really got to the final three village. All right. Well, she's got Keith. She's got big, Wendy and those two Philp sailed away with reams only to jury votes. Just so amazing. Like, this is hilarious. Like, it's great comedy. I love comedy. Me too. And this is it's just really really funny to me. And I just love that. It's happening. I love when things messed up the game a little bit. Let's go for it. All right. Hailey let me take a moment and thank one of our sponsors. And those are our friends over at ship.

Let's go to our listeners out in Saint Louis question for hill. Install who robinhood since the mercenaries was not featured in tonight's episode. We're going to focus on food today. Wednesday March twenty-seven Saint Louis, Missouri has come under national scrutiny for slicing bagels into thin strips called bread. Slicing people are tweeting that they're outraged. It's seventy and at Saint Louis is cancelled we lose residents of biased as a culinary expert. Do you think you could weigh in on the pros? And cons of having to bagel haves versus dinner slices of bagel would Paul Hollywood in Mary berry, say things. Okay. Haley as one of the co hosts of the top chef RA hap- up chefs roundtable, what do you make of all of this bagel? Slicing that's happening. So I- in answer to this question. And I just want to say I love the Saint Louis mine she's club so much, and they know that and I love them. I'm so glad they called in. I want to read to you a question. Akiva, Winokur sent us. Yes. So he says here's my question. Healy's the most famous bagel hater on the internet would slicing bagels, make her more or less likely to enjoy them. Now, why are you a bagel hater? So I I would say that. I don't like bagels is my hottest food take. And I'm pretty open to trying pretty much any food food. A lot of being that made that pretty clear over the last couple of years, but bagels have just never been my thing. I find them too heavy. I don't find that. They. Comes at a west coast. Don't have enough. Okay. Well, we'll maybe I'll try that. But I find that. They don't always like toast evenly. I'm not like super toast to begin with like rather? Just eat plain bread. The texture of bagels. Just like isn't really my jam it just not for me. Okay. So I would say that. Yes. If somebody were to slice bagels, and I can just have a tiny slice of a bagel. I would enjoy it much more. So it sounds like slicing bagels is perfect for people who don't like bagels. Yeah. So it just makes it until a tiny little bread pieces. And so when people were outraged about this on the internet. I was like, oh, this seems perfect for me. Some I saw some like you talk about like, oh, well, these are the same people who like cut up donuts in an office in like just take one little piece. That's amazing because then you get a little piece of a bunch of different donuts. You get like one full Dona of every Donut that would be fine for you. That'd be great for me. 'cause I always want to try like a little bit of everything, you know. Because I always get food remorse where I get my thing. I see someone else's thing. And I want to try their thing is as well as my thing. So I love going to restaurant and getting like three apps in one main to share with whoever I'm with or by myself. Okay. All right. So you say cut those bagels right up cut the Bengals. Okay. Okay. Sure, this has cut the bagels on it. Please. So okay, we'll work on that. Jon Jonny fairplay is going to work on that one kick. Cool. Yes, we need to get a puja on to get the response. What is the bagel industry in Canada thinking? Yeah, I bet Montreal would not be happy with that. Okay. All right. Let me give you another question from our listeners, and this is one for you Haley, and this is from Trent, really, rob. So this season Rick Devon's got the honor of being called by his last name. Jeff. So my question for Haley is would you rather be called Haley? Or would you rather be called strong? And how do you think your game would play out differently? If you were called strong. Okay. Haley Canadians can play survivor now. So if you were to go out on survivor, would you want the last name treatment? I don't think so I I think I'm more of like a first name last name person. So like Kelly gets a lot of Kelly went words like I think I would get a lotta Haley Strong's just 'cause it flows while I think that a three syllable name is really good for her first name last name person. But I wouldn't want to go by strong because I feel like a lot of times people don't know what you're saying. When you say strong, it could sound like something else, or you know, that's the case with Haley to you know, how many times I've said, yeah. My name's Halen people. Like Kaley bailing Kelly, Shelley Shelly. Yeah. Come chili before too. So I think I'd rather just go by Haley just in general, especially. Yeah. Because my last name is strong. So people would automatically assume I am strong, which is just truly not the case whatsoever. We'll are you worried about that on survivor where if you end up going by the last name strong or Haley, strong, then people are going to say like, oh, well, she's a she's Haley strong that she's a strong competitor. We got her out. I mean, I guess, but then they'd see me and be like, oh like she hasn't looked like she's lifted await since like ninety eight. Shoot a survivor go on with a fake last name. I Haley Hoban kogo boom for right or. You know, some some sort of last name that really inspires like a lack of confidence. Where people think that you are just like, hi, my name is rob moron. Hey, I'm Haley depression. Nice to meet you, right? And then people wouldn't would not consider you with threat because maybe your last name, you would get that sort of like. Thrown around where people could think less of you. Yeah. I think people would see me and automatically be like she is not a threat. You know, what we should vote because she's so bad at this. I don't think anyone's ever going to have to worry about me being too. Good of a competitor. Haley, do you have any other takes on these first time players from this season. We haven't we barely touched on them. I always get the short end of the stick. Let me pull up their faces. And I'll go one by one. Yes, tony. I'm obsessed with her. I love her didn't think I would like her. But she is amazing. I'm so excited that she is thinking hard playing hard. I like her social game. It seems like no one's looking to her to vote out. Everyone seems to be asking her opinion in want them on one her on their side. I'd love her a Julia. We haven't seen a lot from her would really like to see more Ron Clark. He's unsettling to me. I'd say why I don't know you just like if that vibe of like the puppet master, oh, I'm in control of next week. Oh, we amazing. A love combo. I don't know think run would be a good person have on your side. But when probably annoy the f out of Haley, what do you think of Ron's eyebrow? What about it? He's got like a Dirac thing going on where the Ron's eyebrow is like the nineteenth castaway. Interesting. Do that's for sure. Ream. We haven't seen more gifts of Ron's eyebrow raises a accountable, and maybe it's because like no one knows what search when they go and survivor 'cause we can't remember his name. Me and your duchess. You you in my mom. I think that Ron has been really fun on this show. I think that he is like always bringing it every time. But he's in confessional. I think that he is going to be great to watch a tribal council. So I very much in here for the Ron Clark story fair fair reasonable reim- Imus asked obviously who isn't were dog. Talking about war dog. He's not for me. I would say not my person. Dogs. I do. But the thing about dogs is I like them. But I don't want them in my home. Same with war. You would not invite him over, you know, probably would have guilt. But like, I just don't he would probably like come in and start rearranging things. Even though like I didn't ask him to. So can coach over there? Let me help you move those thing over here going to over over here. I've been thinking about all these ideas for your apartment and go to move this chair. Be trust me. Trust me. I got to do any work to do it. Right. Like, I would just have to do it. Oh, I don't want to waste my energy moving the Chiro this. Why don't you guys? Just go in there. Oh, but we should vote Haley because she's not sick. And or she's sick. And she's not eating new Royce. Mezza? When we see has one thing going for them that was knee. And I'm sorry word. He's probably listening, right? Or is. He like, I don't know strong is. So I don't care not me on Twitter. I think you'll be okay. That's fine. Rick Devon's I like him a lot. I don't think we've seen enough of him. But I feel like we're going to see more Wendy. She was a lot of fun. But I'm glad that she had her time to shine in pre-marriage them can focus on other things in post merch. Eric. Wow. This picture of is really great on the website. He's like staring into my soul. Whoa. But if you would have asked me twenty minutes ago, what shame was couldn't have told you. Aurora. I like her, but we haven't seen like I'd say anything from her. Just based on the wonderboy comment. I think I'd like her. Look, I put out a hot take. Oh, guess I think auroras been the most invisible castaway this season. I completely agree with you. I think it was. Julia. But now, it's Rura Jillian to confessions for move over. Julia your old news. Yeah. Aurora. We know who you are. Now get everybody that look I I think that Aurora has now taken the crown. Yeah. Like, I think Aurora was cast for reason. But we're just not seeing it which is upsetting Lauren. I'm so deeply obsessed with her. I love her. Why what is she doing? Why are you compare higher cracker? I think this is why like Victoria to we had a real run a seasons there. You know? Oh, God nearly ten years ago now while we've been at this for awhile. Where we had a lot of these young women who were cast because they are pretty, but they weren't really adding anything to the game. They were dragged along like like Natalie ten rallies like your alternate example of that in the last couple of seasons. We've had these young women who come out there, and they're firecrackers and they're trying hard in the game. They're playing super hard. They're thinking about things I think it might be a product of Kelly went worth being on the show a couple years ago. And now they're trying to like have other people who kind of fill that profile Lauren in Victoria, are fun and exciting players who are smart and understand the social game and understand the physical game. And they're super well rounded, and I don't think people are going to really expect too much from them. So that's going to take them far. So I'm really excited about the two of them about them. I love that learning Kelly are working together and not working against each other. That show me. It's fun. I love it. Love them Suber site on. Okay. Okay. Julie. We haven't gone a lot from her. But I like her shooter big episode this week jewel happy. She won the unity. That's awesome. I like her. Oh hot. All right. I'll take it. Yeah. Exactly. She is hot. And I would love if somebody made me a poster I was thinking about this other night. But I have no skills in Photoshop. I want a Julia, Julie and Julia movie poster. Oh, but with Julie and Julia from this. David writes, DVD shelf is it. Well, it's a good actually. No, I have not seen the movie that I have read the book. Now, I think about it. Okay. So you want a Photoshop of Julie and Julia with Julie movie, Julie and kind of and then how many hundred of those did you want in your Twitter? I'd say seven to eight hundred seventy eight hundred okay give it give it 'til Monday stills from the movie copies of the book with maybe a story board. Yeah. That'd be great. Or like Julia child cookbook with Juliane it. Any of the iterations? Police on them to me. I'm obsessed. Are you really like them because it's about cooking? You know? Like, I said, I haven't seen the movie. I read the book, here's thing. I don't really like movies that much with is a hot take yet. Another hot take. I don't like bagels. I don't like movies too long. I don't care. I can usually read a book in less time than it takes like watch a movie how you read I remember really quick reader. And I just don't like taking the time that down like put on a movie in have to pay attention to it. And then easing gets mad when I'm like on my phone during the movie because I don't care that much especially like TV series like sharp objects read the book how much series because like I could definitely read the book quicker. Big little lies read the book how much series because I don't care that much. Anyways. Julie and Julia. Yes, I did I read that book just because it was about food, absolutely. One hundred. Hey, how's the Snapchat going for survivor edge of extinction? Oh, it's nothing. Great. Listen for March. Ethan, I tried this new healthy living not like healthy living. But like making attempt like not drinking on school nights. I tried to do yoga every day. But that guy pushed aside when I got knee surgery recently and another one is no snacking after eight no snacking after snacking before aid is fine. But after a that's the witching Africa. Yeah. It's what we we were doing a lot of snacking after eight. So we should just cut that out. Come so survivor starts at eight. Right. So I can't snug after it. But I like seeing everyone else's snacks. John Johnson has obviously been doing a great job. Sure. The patron group of showing his weekly shrimp amazing idea. I wish I could have a shirt bring every single. Imagine I dream. He doesn't miss a week with. No. And we always has the most interesting combinations. It's like Trump bring and like strawberry yogurt early Brannagh in some like on a cut case. Like what's going on? What we doing this? Jeez. And shrimp rang. Okay. Do you have a winner pick for the season? Haley the person I took I in my draft was Lauren Lauren. Okay. Do you think that she can still do it? I'm not counting real. But I'm not counting her in. Okay. Based on where we are right now. Who do you feel like if you could adjust that pick? This is so tough 'cause I'm always wrong for these things. If you like Lauren does kind of chance because we have seen her on our television. We're like there's a couple of people we can cut out like sorry. Julia. Sorry rura. Sorry jili. We have I don't think that Julie is Doug. Oh, definitely not after this week. I could see like. Gosh, I just don't know. I'm so bad at this. I don't know. Yeah. You know, let's go Julius soundboard. The Haley throwing this terracing. There's so I don't know because we haven't seen many of the new people, and I just don't feel like they're going to vote a returning to win. Okay. So you feel like a new player will win this season. That is your official take at the center Lavigne's going to win. I don't know where Rick Devon's I I'm I feel like there's going to the allot of people who aren't willing to vote for somebody who voted out yet. But he got voted out and then came back in at the merge, and I really feel like survivor loves the person who is like the avatar of the season if they represent the theme and I felt last season our winter, Nick he really was like the avatar for David versus Goliath. And you know, he talks about from the first episode what it's like being David knew the bible story of David. And he was kind of like the perfect winner. For that season. Because of the David versus Goliath story if the center is the edge of extinction. Rick really could be potentially like the perfect embodiment of education considering that he needed to go, by way of ethnic stink tion to get the win. Even if he's not the person that comes back in a day thirty six like I feel like it would not be like the same sort of black eye on the season. Where if somebody like let's say Joe comes back in on day thirty six and wins the game. Whereas if Rick came back, then played well in the post merge, and ultimately wins. I don't think that people would be up in arms about that. Like, you don't think people on the season we'd be up in arms? Fans chained wrap their head around that people would be very upset. You think? So I thought that people would get it'd be like, oh, I don't care who wins. There's already an asterik on the winner of this season. If somebody came back on day thirty five in one, I think people would be mad. But I think that Rick. He was he got voted out. He came back at the merge. And now if he stays in the game, the next twenty days and comes back and wins. Like, I think that there will be the there will be people like there will be some fans podcasters, I know that will be really up in arms. But I think they would that be upsetting to you or because like that I think it'd be ration- of this game. Like that's all fares in love and survivor. It would be much harder pill to swallow. If the day thirty five person comes back and wins the game. Whereas like, Rick. He was out of what he missed two votes. Yeah, he got voted out. But then the day thirty five person, they didn't miss any votes. Yeah. But then they came they came back in at the or but the day thirty person could be Joe like not somebody that gives sorted out on day thirty five and comes comes right back in like Joe get sorted out the merge, he's gone the whole game. And then comes back in wins. One challenge. A fire and wins the game. I think that people would be much more upset about I didn't finish my goes cast. Oh, I feel like historians done. I think so too for me. He seemed very overwhelmed by this whole gods. Yeah. God love survivor from what I've heard. He does Underwood. Sure. Cool. Kelly Wentworth, obviously, I love her. I'm excited. She's back. It seems like this season. Maybe people are not loving her as much. Fans or. The fans the fans are like, oh is this like MSCI Kelly, but like I love this. I love Kelly. She's great. She's maybe like, you know, strong, willed whatever Gavin. I do we know Gavin muchly, really fine. Oh. I don't know if he could get into a bar with showing for the rest of his life ever ever does the beard on the show. No. Yeah. And ensure that forever, David David, I'm happy. He's back. That's that's fun for me. He's he's he's a he's a fun time. Okay. Yeah. So that's that's me. That's the cast. You know? Any other takes on the season Haley, I don't think so. No, it's it's fine. But it's not like the most amazing thing I've ever seen my entire life. Okay. All right. Hailey anything else about non survivor? Ooh. So I was really upset by your obsession with boring chicken. Yes. What do you want to know about boring chicken? Why? So I don't think it's boring. I think it's great. I enjoy it. You know? You know? I eat mostly the same food every single day. The harder thing for me to understand meal. Prepping just has never clicked with me because I couldn't imagine eating the same food days in a row. Sounds like a absolute nightmare to me in chicken is probably one of my least favorite proteins. So when you're adding that together is just book it's not for everybody in present. It's not for everybody. But it works for me. I really I really enjoy. I've been accused that. I don't like food. I was just going to ask you kiva is famous for thinking that you hate food. Like is that true? No, I don't I don't hate food. I mean, the ones. The ones I hate food. It makes it sound like rob your malnourished that are you are you eating and sure I eat I can tell you exactly what I eat every single day. And if anybody has any questions about it, I'll screen shot them. My my fitness pal if they want to see it. But I don't look to food to bring me happiness in my life. I have a I have a wonderful job that I love. And this is this is my passion, and I get a incredible amount of enjoyment from getting to do the podcast talk to funny people like yourself, and I I have the best time doing this that I don't look to food as being a source of you know, what I want the food to be there for me when I need it. But that's I don't spend a lot of time and energy and imagination thinking about food stuff and people get so mad at you. If you started eating on the podcast. Oh, no you. I mean, nobody wants to hear it doesn't bother me any. I don't care. But a lot of people have very strong opinions of it. What else did I have to ask you? Yeah. So what was the last time? You watched an episode of the bachelor. Not recently probably in at a time when we did a podcast like at like Emily season or like Andy season when we first started yoga longtime ago. Why why do you want me to watch one? No. I was just curious. I mean it's ever like on. And you're like, you know, what I'm gonna turn this on. Yeah. I never would watch it. You know, it just as like like, ooh, look the bachelor is on. I would never turn it on my own. But I'm died. You know, I I love getting to be a guest on the other podcasts if you guys ever wanted me to come back on and talk about that. Yeah. So you tell me anytime. Okay. Cool. I feel very like cutting off loosey goosey when I come in as a guest on a podcast. Yeah. Maybe we should get you on for the premiere of bachelor in paradise or something I feel like that'd be more. I would love I would I would love to bachelor in paradise. I would really enjoy more. So than bachelor pad Ray bachelor pad that was that was more fun. I like when everybody is being stupid and making fun of you know, the different people. That's that's the appeal to me about bachelor stuff. Okay. We'll call you for bachelor paradise. Okay. All right. Hailey what else is going on in your world? Anything not a whole lot. I'm on podcast vacation right now. Okay. Actually season's over. Yes. Doesn't start. We're did you land on the bachelor Colton controversies? You'll have to listen to find out. Just kidding. I'm I don't care that much. Did he why did he jumped the fence he jumped because he his girlfriend broke up with them. I'm fine with them. Just dating like twenty three and a half like calm down can get engaged right now. If you don't want to get it. I don't think they're going to laugh. Hannah's the bachelorette. I feel like is a very interesting choice. And I'm excited to see how that season goes down. But mostly I don't recommend watching the show. It's a waste of your time. And just listen to my podcast instead. I do it for you. And you can listen to us, and then you can go to work the next day and talk about the bachelor because they know your coworkers are talking about it. And then you can sound like, you know, what you're talking about. But you don't have to wait two hours your life every single week watching it. Yes. And you and Amy are OG bachelor and bachelorette hosts that I believe it's now what five years that you guys are doing this podcast. Yeah. It'll be five years in may. I believe the view as were the first wrap up. We we launched the network with and Brian coming probably like a month after us at the challenge podcast, and they feel like we are also like one of the first bachelor podcasts. Now, there's like if you think there's a lot of survivor podcasts. Right. There's probably even more bachelor podcasts. Yeah. It's a very saturated market very saturated market, but why go anywhere else when you can go to the OG's, Amy and Haley who are still -scribed to the wrath of seen just press planes, deleting. Us. That's right. So the five year anniversary is it gonna is the bachelorette going to be the culmination of five your adversary. Or was it the bachelor the first season that you guys we've officially done fifteen seasons at the show fifteen. Yeah. Fifteen seasons of bachelor bachelorette bachelor in paradise. Wow. Yeah. Isn't that? Crazy. That's wild. Yeah. So once we get to the new season of the bachelorette that'll be our official. We've done five years this. We're starting in the second five years. All right. And then you retiring after ten years. No, I doubt that I truly can't believe we've even made it this far. So I'm thinking, we should just continue intil. I dunno one of us dies. It's gonna be me. I. I mean you and Amy the oh, jeez. You guys predate the LLC. Yeah. Guys have seen so many shows and bachelors and bachelorettes come and go and that that their death taxes and Amy and Haley talking about the bachelor and the bachelorette. Yeah. Can you believe it's been five years? I really feel like listening to the podcast for belt nine at this point. So it's pretty crazy that most of my adult life has been sent rob. Well. Look, a you. Yeah. And I'd say a lot of the great things in my life came because you believed in me, really. Well, that's that's very very nice. I really appreciate that every shit you taking a chance on me because I often feel like I'm not that funny. I'm not that smart mediocre in looks at best. So I have those moments. I'm sure lots of people have this moment. It's like why me why why do people like listening to me for some reason, you believe that was a good idea for me to have my own podcast. And you know, it's been so much fun. And I've been able to find something that I really enjoy. And that I think I'm decent debt. So I appreciate so much. Well, the pleasure is always mind to get to work with you. If you are a great comedic voice, and it's been a joy to be able to have you on this platform with us. Thank you vocal fries. Not too bad. No. I love it. I love it in fact. Okay. Well, once we get that thinking noise on the soundboard to that'll be even better. Oh by God. That noise is going to be the death or anything. What's what's strong, take Stutz? So it is my blog I blog the wild back. But then kinda took a break, and I've really wanted to get back to it. It's a fun creative. Twitter's a lot of. Fun. But I want to do some more long form stuff. So I came up with strong takes it was the name was suggested to me by calm stone. It was a great idea. I thought it was fun. And it really encompasses everything. I like to talk about food TV makeup travel books everything. So, you know, if you like certain things, don't like other things there's always kind of post for you that I think you'll enjoy. So I think keeping up with that. That's a lot of fun thinking starting YouTube channel up in the next couple. Eventually what will you do on you to? I think something more food based not necessarily like a cooking channel where I teach you to cook. But it's more. Like, hey, I'm also not that great at cooking. So let's do this together had some ideas of like, can I make this like can I make a souffle can I learn how to pickle things can I use my instant pot. So I think that might be a fun idea. Just to kind of you know, we're all on the same level of cooking skills, but I like talking about food. So that'd be fun. Yeah. So you can find me strong takes dot CA all over Twitter Instagram at eight strong underscore, the bane of your existence. Rob. I know you hate scores. But I sorry. I'm sorry. Why don't you be strong? Takes us really taken on Twitter. It's probably taken probably know at this point. And it's like, what's the point Jamie truncates because that taking yes, it is by guy named Eric. After. It's regularly though. So does he. Yeah. He does. Yeah. He's you know, actually, he has a great re tweet. It's how many wins the Saint Louis cardinals have in its beg things. Eero toe. I know do you give us a prediction for the Blue Jays this season? They're going to do terribly. Okay. It's gonna say off year for the Blue Jays. It's an off year for the Blue Jays. And that's fine. I love them. Anyway. Hopefully, tickets will be a little bit cheaper. Okay. How do you feel about my Mets? I they're looking good. Right. I think they're okay might do. Okay. We more reason for hope than last year. So we'll see I don't want to get to. We are one annot. So don't wanna get too excited. The ale used is very unfound straight. Now, the gang keys in the Red Sox are good. But the Blue Jays Orioles raise kinda trash so that should be fun for all of us. All right. Hailey strong you've done it again. Thank you. Thank you for giving. All your strong takes too strong takes out. Yes. Sean on Twitter and Instagram. Okay. Here is where we're going from here that next up this week in survivor. Have you checked out that podcast not yet? I will I promise. All right where we do it. All we're going to talk to our guests, Scott chernoff. We're going to do the survivor social media which has been lit this season. And then we're gonna play the this week in survivor history quiz with Jordan Kayla. Shawl with our guest, Scott chernoff, survivor podcast, or TV writer should be a fun one. And then we'll get back to the wiggle room on Monday where we will go into our first wand off of the post merge here what Josh has to say about everything. And so looking forward to that one also this weekend going to get back to Robin, Akiva, Nita, podcast and other one of Haley's favorites. It is I love that podcast. I'm a big Akiva fan. Yes. So anything where you get to talk to him. And because I didn't listen to like, I don't I didn't watch Seinfeld. Toy didn't really listen to that podcast. So this is great because you know, if there's things I want to listen about tune in. Okay. We're gonna spin a wheel of podcast ideas that are submitted by the listeners every single week. Of course this past week. We did our three and a half hour TV bracket tournament, which was up in the podcast feed. Almost everybody said that we did a terrible job all on the way. But they enjoyed listening to it. So I guess, there's some positives. There. Yeah. That's a long. I haven't listened to that one yet. I'm waiting for a long drive or walk to get through that one. Just this week Keven, I will discuss true crime as we watch an episode of CSI, New York and record our thoughts about it. As we go along. I'm very this is an OG on the board. So I'm really excited to listen to that. So that's what's coming up this weekend. Of course news af as well. And then we'll get back into it with the survivor know it all on a Wednesday night with Stephen fishbach.

RHAP B&B with Mike Bloom & Liana Boraas | Big Brother 22 Week 2 | Haley Strong

"Some game. Right. Offense Law. As the R. H.. Peyton. Day. Lay. Off. I can sell you. The are ASE. Hi everybody. Welcome to the RHA BB being be for week number two a big brother twenty two. My name is Mike Bloom here too unlike Memphis be nice and open with this panel about the second week of Big Brother all stars as we lots of tear. Tears tears shed. Sorry just doing my best Julie Chen impression there. Lots of. Lots of star power both rising, and falling or holding steady veto competition. There's a lot to talk about. Let's welcome in the panel for this week I, the co-pilot here on the beam be, but certainly, not an dirk space jam Ileana Boris on a how are you? I'm good. I'm thinking we should put out a buffet of crab legs Mike I think that's a really great way to just class up the place and help all of our guests just feel so much more comfortable. Should we'll have like a day sale where during the day you'll? Get crab legs half off and a possibly come with some talk. But at the end will say, like don't worry there safeguards in place and then just sort of leave a message at that but it's interesting. You're pointing out crab legs because our guest this week is someone who you can hear talk about food each and every week on the beyond top chef recap here on reality TV perhaps also featuring myself as well as the expert on all things Bachelor Bachelorette international even here on reality TV. Perhaps Haley strong welcome to the BNB. How's it going? I'm doing well, you know it's just taking me a couple of guys and a couple tries to get this podcasting thing rank. La. Thoughts on that that whole interaction. With you guys I totally forgotten until just now the Mike this is going to remind you of. Eddie, coming on the PODCAST I forgot to watch Thursday's episode. I know what happens I know what happens but shuts realized I forgot to watch it watch entire week so far I know what's going on what's going on in the feeds etcetera etcetera but I just straight up for talking about any podcast not watch the last episode for I. Think that would plus considering like the formalities that went through including the winter I think it's okay honestly what You. Missed is listen as I said, I'm going to be open. I'M GONNA come right out and say this I think Julie Chen moonves says is the worst longtime reality TV hosts in the history of the medium like I m flummoxed that week after week in this particular year, there are so many weird between screw ups and non sequiturs and just extremely awkward the cup. Remarks and again like if it's TJ lab and I would not be surprised. You fell off BMX bike. Yeah. It's like listen. You did not get into the industry a host you're not here for your charisma necessarily but Julie Chen moonves has not only been hosting this show for twenty years has been a media personality for more. So I am just like my mind feels like it's pouring out of me during every live show because Julie Chen move as just continues to be this gigantic package pile of awkward despite hosting the Scholley Oughta for going on twenty two seasons. What do you want Mike? She's only been doing it for twenty years. Okay like He's just kidding. Just. Kidding. Remember the golden rule always be terrible at your job. Yeah, I think that'll be the next one. The next phrase that she says I think for me. What's even more baffling is the fact that this is know obviously, it's they have to air the live episodes live episodes. I use an air quotes because they're not actually live close to they are taped but the fact that two words in she's already making a mistake and nobody bothered to go back. Row Camera back like let's just re-shoot that real quick, not a problem thirty extra seconds never happened not to put that on Julie and the production team or what's going on well, one coin like why are they doing this I? Am You know what I don't do not care if this is airing lot like the show is airing live to me directly do not care. I would rather. Have the fifteen extra minutes of footage and be able to like create. Like. A normal product expansion so We're still we've still have the fun of live really is just like. You don't need to include Julie Chen Moon Vez, saying that Danny Brioni wishing happy birthday and saying that the previous week she looked like quote unquote very pretty actress busy Phillips like that's not needed. If you have more stuff you're able to trim it down a little bit say may have make an hour and fifteen or like a Sixty minutes of footage and then you can cut out what you don't need. I know, but it's like that's what makes big brother big brother I kind of feel like Julie Chen as a terrible host is a necessary component to make. What it is like without her. Her new catch phrases or sayings at the end of every episode? Like how would we have done the draft last week my. Brings me joy. I also understand that like so we talked about how? We talked about the draft last week I think that in her interview with Dalton Ross, she was alluding to like the golden rule stuff was referring to black lives matter. I do not know what veiled social message she was making this week with a if you choose to be right or chippy kind police used to be kind also that phrase makes absolutely no sense. Mary pointed this out on on the Thursday recap that that's not the phrase and also you shouldn't have to choose the. Rights were being. Isn't the right thing to do the kind thing like I don't even understand the phrase. A maybe again, maybe she screwed it up, maybe it was wrong on the teleprompter, but I guess it's like well, if if you know you're right. Pretender wrong and be gracious about it is that season plying yeah. But like okay. But when you say the right thing to do, it's not that she's talking about like factually being correct, right? I don't think that's morally what is the right thing to do not like, Oh, I got this. Correct, like you don't have to say the fact like if the fact is correct and you want to be right about that. I don't I don't even. Know. This is to me. This is the newest like what is the sound of one hand clapping of like just ethical questions and Haley trying it and I think it's okay. You look like in with his dinosaur puppet. Yeah. namie listen. They're all the rage nowadays, Haley speaking of Ian and the other twenty, two houseguests. So you did a a ranking on your blog going to season of the houseguests going into this all star season. Well, what's been your impression two weeks in The community certainly has a reception towards big brother twenty two so far share their feelings or do you have your own perceptions of it? I I have been having a good time watching it. I was really pumped up watching the first episode and cascading released and I'm somebody that I like I always tell you is that if you want me to be on your big brother podcasts, you need to ask me within the first four weeks because they've probably stop watching otherwise I'm hoping that we can keep watching this season I'm having a good time. I've been so supremely bored with WHO'S ONE H the loss three weeks so like I can't imagine a worse a worse trio to start the season off with being the house. More back and forth I, want. I just want more excitement. I think maybe. The H. competitions needs to be a little bit more diversified so we can see somebody different winning just. Or. Three dumb white men like tyler is not dumb. I don't think Memphis is. Like he was. MEMPHIS HELL CODY is the dumbest person to have been on this show in a long time. He's just like he's just he's doing or Derek has told him he can't have thought. and. It's crazy because him and memphis are both like. Oh we need each other because we don't know how to function and Nada duo. It's like come on guys like let's get yourself together now. I think one of my favorite things is when people speak confidently about things they know nothing about as someone who frequently does that themselves like I. Recognize that and other people and cody is definitely guilty of that I wouldn't agree with the fact that he's the big brother player ever. He doesn't know what an adjective is he yes. But in terms of speaking confidently about things, he knows nothing about like he's up there for for that. Is he the dumbest person on the season you think? ooh. No. Okay. So again, there's so many. been. Give me your dumb rankings. Hoof. Rankings. Terms of dumb case her in or at the bottom right because they are of the brain ear people that we've seen in the history of the show. If. We're talking about like stir are usually about like like. Intel agencies it is I'm Oh you're. Telling him like if we if we put them on, are you smarter than a fifth grader who is most likely to fail? I like that I like that. Does so. I feel like Enzo. Maybe that's one of the reasons why Yvonne to have kids when he was a teenager because then he would have accessibility to more grade school learning. No that's a good point. He actually might do well if he if. He has children now his children around that same age. Maybe they actually know fifth grade type thing you let David might be someone who doesn't know many fifth grade type thing. I mean, this was not a good week for David and I think if he brings those sort of skills of. Interpersonal ability into actual learning in my not fit I feel like I don't know Christmas. Christmas is what would be the worst, but she certainly would be like the teacher's pet. She'd be like this classrooms team I just I'm so happy I got this a plus for my team I want us that Pizza Party. Okay, who's the class clown and why is it ends up? Ends Oh and just sitting in the back of the class the entire time like telling stories about like. Where his family went over the weekend and not paying attention whatsoever. You told this story about how his parents met and it was like he said, it was like the Italian notebook? His mom his mom is downward together and then his mom moved to the United States but were writing letters to each other but then they stopped writing letters and so then the mom came back to Italy to see the dad but the dad was with someone else and Found out, and then I came to America and then the lake rekindled and re fellow lovers. Of thing. Anyway I never saw the notebook is that close? Isn't there more murder in the know how much rain was there in the story. Paris wheel? Is there some dangerous things going on how many? How much rain and how much Alzheimer's is in the story is James Marsden there. I don't think chronicle does details in terms of either the weather, the large A. Ferris wheel type. What are those things called amusement rides now I'm not an carnival rides current full rides. Was James Marsden there that would have been really fun. Marston. And so being like, Oh, you won't believe it that Dude James. Mars was there. Should. We just talk about the movie enchanted instead. Let's make this an enchanted podcast. What a lovely film that is that is a really great film. Amy Adams. Very deserving him an Oscar many times over. But yeah, it's an interesting point. You bring up Haley and it's tough because like the results that bore out was frustrating and a little dispiriting especially if you watch the feeds and how Nicole Anthony was essentially spun into a tizzy against people like, Jalen case. I personally will say that I think while Memphis is kind of an a hole in this season in particular his wage may for kind of a fun week. Especially, if you were following the because there was a surprising amount of chaos in the fact that surprise surprise. If you don't tell your alliance, what you're doing, they're gonNA freak out about it and so. You know again while it led to a result of like you know two people nominated to outsiders nominated veto not used one person victims tend two. There was a lot of stuff going on from the micro perspective that I found interesting. Even if to your Point Hillary, the result is definitely less than ideal I'm truly madly deeply biased and everything I say do. So if things are going the way I want them to then it's like hard for me to be like Oh yeah, that's great. I can look at that objectively in like I just cannot. I have been washing big brother for a very long time. I
