Watched the new season start last night. I am loving some Dolvett......Loved it when his rag-tag team beat Bob's team! Oh snap!!
I love it too. I use the expression oh snap all the time but when I used it here during BB season 8 I got a warning level.... go figure. I haven't been around Morty's too much because I hate looking at my warning level every time I post.
Dolvett is really HOT!

With any reality show, its hard to know how much is truly real, and how much of TV reality is a result of editing scenes together to make the drama appear more dramatic than what actually occurred. IMHO, season after season, TBL producers tend to edit out most conflicts or make conflicts appear less intense than what occurred; this is very different than most reality shows who thrive and encourage conflict. In the past TBL always wanted to make sure the show more about making everyone appear likable and friendly, leaving the conflict between the individuals and their trainers. The trainers get the be the bad guys, but of course more like a wise\loving parent that sets fair rules and then pushes their kids to be the best they can be. This season, there has been more drama between the individuals than there ever has been in the past, and their personality flaws are shown.

This season has been by far the most confrontational season they have ever had. And personally, I think Adrian and Daphene were setup by producers. Not setup to fail, but put in a situation where there was high probability they would become extremely defensive and make bad decisions that hurt themselves more than hurting anyone else. Clearly when casting the show, the producers knew both were hot heads and would be clashing with other contestants no matter what, thus the producers chose them for the drama that they would bring. And when Adrian was voted out, it looked to me they had a beefed up security on the set just in case Adrian lost control and started throwing punches. We of course have no idea what got edited out, and I suspect we saw the cleaned up version. Pretty good chance Adrian ranted a lot longer, and said some really nasty things to everyone before leaving. It also looked that the others had been coached by producers to keep quiet if Adrian started ranting, which of course he did. Daphene pretty much shot herself in the foot too by not willing to be a team player, instead she wanted revenge, and she more-or-less went on a suicide mission in an effort to take out Anaconda. Even Bob, her only support, found her difficult to keep under control. Maybe his efforts kept her from simply walking out. I'm remain dumbfounded how they got her to show up for the vote. After the weigh in she knew she was going home, thus no point to continue. But chances are she was warned that if she walked out before the vote, she would be breaking her contract, and thus forfeiting a rather large sum of money; several thousand at the very least.

I can't stand Conda and when she said she wanted to be a role model, I almost fell off my couch laughing. I can't wait until she gets the boot out the door...hopefully she doesn't make it to the finals!
I couldn't figure out why Kris would vote to keep Daphne, even though she promsied her she would never vote her off. Daphne didn't have a snowball's chance in hades of staying. Kris only put an even bigger target on herself than she already had. She was already low man on the totem pole and cries about it every week how she'll be the next one to go.
I just can't figure this bunch out. They haven't lost the amounts of weight that past seasons have either...not even the bigger men. FINALLY this week Buddy had a good double digit weight loss.

Conda looked okay too, but I still can't stand her. I hope her 1-pound disadvantage helps send her packing next week!!!
