  1. I’m home from work today and I’m watching Let’s Make a Deal(don’t judge me). Courtney just got picked as a contestant. He just won a motorcycle. I can’t tell if Lily was with him.

    She did.. she kissed both Leo and Venmo. She told him about both instances. I think she was an asshole for kissing both those dudes, but Joe knew, so I don't consider that being played unless behind the scenes she was professing monogamous love for him.

    I'm not giving either of them a pass. I think they are both immature. Frankly, I think it's giving Joe a bit of a pass by expecting Kendall to read his mind because he didn't go out with any other girls. Guys don't like it when we women expect you to read our minds, so it should go go both ways. If they did discuss dating outside of Paradise, that is completely different than now saying you might propose while grinning and in a non-serious manner. Why can't these people just speak to each other like adults?? They are all emotionally stunted and immature like a bunch of high school kids still testing the waters of the opposite sex.
  4. S05.E11: After Paradise

    I look forward to your posts lol... you don't pull any punches.
  5. S05.E10: Week 6: Season Finale

    Oh yeah I would joke about it being crazy as well. I get why they were both laughing about it. But if Joe was really serious, and I don't know if he truly was about that part, he wasn't expressing it from what we were shown. They both admitted they are commitment-phobes, so I think he was laughing about it due to his fears, and she freaked out and walked away over hers. It was kind of a recipe for disaster between two people not acting mature enough for a mature topic. I do think Joe was in the right when he pointed out that she should speak for herself and not project her feelings onto him or use "we", as she should speak for herself and let him do the same.

    Well I can only comment on what is shown. I agree we don't know what the editors choose to leave out, so my comments are about how it played out to the viewers. They didn't go to the fantasy suite. They broke up before the fantasy suite.
  7. S05.E10: Week 6: Season Finale

    Well to be fair.. she did say "joe you aren't serious, i can tell by your smile, you're messing with me" to which he replied "you never know" while continuing to smile. I mean I get the happy go lucky, coy routine and that can also be from fear or shyness. But you're talking about proposing marriage.. maybe you should sit up and say "ok but for real, let's have a serious talk about this".
  8. S05.E10: Week 6: Season Finale

    This is why I said a few episodes back that neither of them could communicate like adults.. I know, I know, I'm Captain Obvious right? But if you need to test someone's reaction to a proposal, you aren't anywhere near the point where you should be proposing. I like both Kendall and Joe (although Kendall was starting to annoy me towards the end) but they clearly just weren't ready for anything serious. I think Joe got swept up into the producer's urging to take it to a proposal, and Kendall understandably didn't know if he was being serious or not because he said it while laughing and in a joking manner. I can see how she was taken aback when after weeks of light hearted fun, with no real expression of feelings, he angrily proclaims she should have known how he was feeling.. maybe not in those exact words, but it was something along the lines of Kendall: "i don't know how you feel" Joe: "how could you not".. um, because you waited until the last day to mention it?
  9. S05.E05: Week 3: Part 2

    Those are fair points. I guess I personally don't feel shocked that she accepted a date from someone else because I just didn't see this super strong connection, and Joe himself admitted he hadn't expressed serious feelings toward her. I do think the way she went about things was insensitive, but they don't seem to communicate like adults so I'm not that surprised that they weren't on the same page. I like Joe, and I hope he finds someone who is suited for him because from what I've seen he's sweet and funny, and there are lots of girls out there looking for that type of guy.
  10. S05.E05: Week 3: Part 2

    I don't know if this was directed at me or if my post just happened to fall right before yours in regards to Kendall. I don't think Kendall is the next member of Mensa or an amazing pure-hearted intellectual. I just think she is looking for a certain "type" and Joe never struck me as that type. She, whether you agree or not, projects that she is not into the "ordinary".. taxidermy, ukuleles, picnicking in graveyards.. maybe it's contrived, or maybe she's just different. My feeling is she's searching for someone who is also different. Leo ain't it. I'm sure she already realizes this by now. I think the way she was quick to accept Leo's date was insensitive to Joe. .but I don't see this as a double standard between the men and the women. Kenny went on a bunch of dates and kissed 3 women in a night and no one was jumping on him as wrong reasons. As much as I hated seeing Joe get his feelings hurt, I also did not see all this passion and seriousness between them that would make her accepting another date so egregious. She probably should have been more up front that she wasn't having serious feelings towards Joe.. but he also should have been more up front that he was having serious feelings.

    I like Kendall a lot.. she's one of the few I follow on Instagram. I also like Joe a lot. Not once this season have I had the impression that they are a good match or would make it for one day beyond the confines of Paradise. Kendall is quirky and wants someone who not only appreciates that, but has their own quirkiness. Leo, on the surface, seems to fill that uniqueness she's looking for.. I have no doubt she doesn't know about his alleged extra-curricular activities. Joe just seems to want a sweet, attentive girl (which Kendall is), whom he can laugh with and enjoy life. I can't figure out if Tia and Colton were already dating, and this whole thing is just a long drawn out dramatic setup they agreed to for more camera time... or if it's really a case of Tia forcing a relationship on Colton. I think Colton seems like a decent, if immature and basic dude. But I also agreed with Raven's concern that maybe he's just chasing the spotlight and not the person. Who knows anymore. I miss when things seemed more organic.. basically a bunch of 20 and 30 somethings drinking too much and creating their own drama. I look forward to BIP every summer as just mindless fun, but now it seems SO contrived, and it's sucking my fun out.
  12. S05.E04: Week 3: Part 1

    I'm not much of a Tia fan but I did love her reaction to the bullshit Chris was spewing. It was basically amused incredulity.. like yeah dude your creepy attempts at gaslighting aren't going to work on me.. see ya.
  13. S05.E04: Week 3: Part 1

    Jordan and Jenna could barely keep straight faces when he was dragging the dog out into the water. And David is a terrible actor with his constant repeating of how he's just doing it for her birthday.. like dude the camera got the shot of you saying it.. and the editors could edit some of it out.. it is just so poorly staged. Come on guys. That said, and while I think they are all in on the joke, I do think the producers try to egg it on and stoke it, hence Jordan's little hissy about the girls laughing at him. Anyway, he still makes me laugh with some of his lines.."even nice developments have some speed bumps". It all flows so quickly and naturally off his tongue I can't help but chuckle.
  14. S14.E10: The Men Tell All

    Jordan doesn't bother me. Whether it's shtick or he truly is a narcissist, I find it funny when the shows ridiculousness is thrown back in its face. Jason could not have been more phony and arrogant. He already believes his own hype and seems much changed from Becca's season. I mean his opening comments were SO practiced that you could almost hear the producers telling him that it's his chance to show if he can be articulate and command a room like a lead needs to. The folded politician hands only made him seem more disingenuous (I'm sorry disingenuine). Connor was quite the hypocrite calling out Chris for losing his composure.. really dude who chucked a picture in the pool on like night 2. I'm guessing Jason gets the gig, but Colton certainly seems to be auditioning as well. Both men's tears were ridiculously forced.
  15. Becca seems nice enough but she's a woo! girl. Aka a "cool girl" (TM Amazing Amy - Gone Girl). She enthusiastically agrees with whatever her partner is saying and would never lodge a concern such as "wow, I don't think I'd be ok with our kids limbs being chewed up in farm equipment" because that would seem naggy and less than easy going/low guy maintenance.
