    Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    I'm no fan of her boudoir type photos (or anyone else's, really), but I still think if she wants to do that sort of thing it should be entirely on her own terrms.

    Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    Um, wear more flattering clothes? It's one thing to have some extra padding in that area - but most women who do would choose not to wear those pants. At least not for all the world to see.

    Masterchef (UK)

    I am, but don't usually have much to say if no one else is talking. So - here's a thought: I wish they'd taken five through again on Friday instead of four. Jasmine was so strong in the earlier segments, and her savory elements for the last round sounded like they worked very well, too. It's probably unfortunate that she said what she did about not liking to measure - they may have taken it at as a sign that she would inevitably run aground down the line on baking challenges; and she probably should have either left off the big cake or tried to do something else to doctor it - a syrup &/or some fruit or cream might have helped, along with a much smaller presentation of it. Still, I'd rather they'd given her one last shot. I thought the top three were pretty clear, and sixth was pretty clear, but it seemed pretty close between her and Jilly for 4th, so I was sort of expecting them to send either 3 or 5 through.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    There's a reason that land was so cheap, Jenelle! I'm glad the dog kept them from going too fast with Kaiser on board, since they didn't have him wear a helmet for his mandatory ride back to the house to change clothes.

    Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    No need to dis everybody else, Kail. That's a more flattering look than she typically sports, though, so I'll give her that.

    It's important to have winter court shoes as well as summer court shoes ;).

    Except Chelsea (and Cole)

    I wonder if Jenelle's kids are also just tired all the time from not having a regular schedule, not getting enough sleep, etc. The household seems chaotic. The contrast with Chelsea's normal, relaxed, happy, confident kids is really striking, but just being chronically tired would account for a lot of it.

    Botched

    This one was actually fine - someone who was transgender and hadn't done anything too egregious in the process (hormones, implants, shaved Adam's apple, attempt to reduce chin that didn't go as far as she had hoped), and when told she looked like a Kardashian and asked if that was her aim, she basically said, God, no, I just want to look like myself. When advised the smaller chin she hoped for came with risks, she wanted no part of that. And her face looked great anyway. The photo shoot was nuts, but her attitude was great. This season most of the crazies seem to be from Europe, so I'm guessing they've pretty much run out of locals who are this insane.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I would think it's more that Valentine's Day & the like bring into high focus everything that is wrong in the relationship.

    I know, but that is what he was referring to - it's the only stuff they sent to the lab. He may have simplified things, but in any event, apparently no foreign matter or pathological tissue findings and essentially just blood.

    S16.E11: The Greatest

    I won't spoil you on who won LCK, but just FYI, they did announce the winner. I was surprised they didn't hold off! I was having trouble seeing how they were going to work a dinner around boxing matches, but I thought it went well, and I agree it was nice to see them working well together.

    Worst Cooks In America

    I've seen recipes for tomato tarte tatin before (for example: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1017616-caramelized-tomato-tarte-tatin), so that's what I thought of, but I agree, the idea of a regular double-crusted pie filled with tomatoes sounds really unappealing. I love rhubarb pie - I asked for it every year as a child for my birthday - but I've have never understood why people add strawberries to it - I don't really care for the taste of cooked strawberries. All rhubarb needs is some sugar and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.) & a little thickener of some kind (I use tapioca).

    S09.E04: Don't Wanna Go Home

    The ones I know mostly worked with pacemakers and such. They would sometimes be there for procedures. I wasn't really clear on the nature of their involvement. Here's a link that describes "a typical day for a medical device sales rep": https://www.advancerecruitment.net/a-day-in-the-life-working-in-medical-sales which confirms there can be a good deal of back and forth with device reps during procedures.

    Device reps often do.
