    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    I don't give a good GD what we maybe "don't know" about Kate! I for one have SEEN and HEARD ENOUGH of and from Luke the Puke to put him squarely in the human DEBIT column! ETA: "Making a mockery of marriage." Besides arranged marriages' being common in some extant cultures, so have there been allegedly "love connection" marriages that we came to know were anything but from the git-go. E.g., Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer; Elton John and Renate. So I wouldn't call "MAFS" a mockery so much as a variation of marriage.

    Woot! I just bought a ticket to attend a talk and book-signing by Graham Hancock in NYC this May (2019)!!

    S17.E02: The Future Is Here

    What can be said other than that Frankie should never, ever have been chosen to be on this show, in place of a qualified (note: not "more qualified," as Frankie was never) candidate. Kudos to the winning team for the only well-conceived and well-constructed garments. And especially to Sebastian, who apparently made two of the outfits, heh. But the premise? FUGLY and CREEPY.

    S07.E12: Modern Families

    Men walk runways, too, but dressing adult males ain't really PR's thang. My opinions of tonight's outfits ranged from dislike to hate. I can't see Dmitry and his Chez Frump aesthetic winning. Michelle? As IF! I think Irina will win.

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    discoprincessthe2, Point taken. But Patti Stanger at least had some long-term relationships including an engagement, and, on TV anyway, never said any man's touch "repulsed" her or "made (her) feel dead inside." All I know is, if Kate doesn't seek a divorce, all my previous sympathy is out the window! One question: We've seen AJ "blow up" (I think he's just excitable, but for the sake of argument....). We've been privy to Will's not wanting sex with Jasmine and heard them disagree about money matters. We've heard Keith describe his own ambition or lack thereof, and Kristine's lack of eagerness to have children soon. We've watched Luke make personal digs at Kate. But when have we seen Kate dead-drunk?? Luke's main "storyline" about her, and we've seen....?? Bupkis. What show are we WATCHING, people?! Come on. Luke the Puke is either an outright 100% LIAR, or else he is a major PRISSY HYPOCRITE. P. S. Y'all know that the "Champagne Glass" is just a whirlpool hot tub, right? That it's not filled with champagne? That it's as hygienic as any other hot tub, maybe more than, as it's only for two? https://www.covepoconoresorts.com/suites/pocono-palace-suites/champagne-tower-suite/

    Isn't Kate's being drunk on the honeymoon a hypothetical? Besides which, Luke's comments on Kate's drinking cannot be his ultimate basis for lack of attraction to his bride. He was turned off at the altar, and Kate surely wasn't snockered then. I'm coming around to the notion that Luke is gay. Here's a man who has a BUSINESS dealing with single women looking for mates, and he couldn't find a suitable girlfriend! Or maybe he didn't know how to, how to approach a woman, how to court her, how to be romantic and/or seductive---with a female. But he thought maybe he should marry, for whatever personal (and business) reasons. So voila--- MAFS and Instant Bride! No mess, no fuss! But actually BEING a man married to a woman? In public he can pretend. In private he is "repulsed and feels dead inside" from any intimacy; then hides in isolation after sex, an action that suggests regret and an immediate need to "process" his feelings. Then, because he IS repulsed (and maybe with himself, in truth), Luke REACTS in a nasty manner: he tells Kate, in total contradiction to the show's demands, to keep their "love" lives a big secret; gaslights her (brings her wine!); snidely finds fault (with Kate's hygiene, meal decisions, drinking, and clothing choices: you know, daily living!); and ignores her when he has his friends visit. AJ didn't make any "gay" wisecracks about either Keith or (irony!) Will; just Luke. Snark, or Sixth Sense?

    That very last 2-second shot of the Martini Glass Hot Tub with Keith looking at Kristine? Whatever was on his face---lust, love, admiration, gratitude---it was REAL. I think he'll want to stay married!

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    Monotone Kate at least acknowledges the problem of Luke's not being attracted to her. Will sleeps to escape, clearly. AJ might be on rockier ground than he thinks. Keith has "learned." That's what he is leaving with.

    Buddy vs. Duff

    Moral of the Story: Bigger is better. But not for its own sake. As the one judge said, Duff didn't have enough scale to allow for a variety of decorating techniques. Of course, next week Duff wins, because....television.

    Almost over and I've liked one singer.

    S16.E15: Finale

    biakbiak, You reminded me of the one Ethiopian restaurant I've ever been to, decades ago in D. C. I loved my meal, right down to eating the flatbread "plate"! Ya know, except for the "Eddie Money" episode, I've already forgotten this season. Yeah No, Like I said, I've forgotten much already. But as for people's never criticizing the physical or sartorial appearance of TC males: Just read this thread for comments on Graham!

    S17.E01: Premiere

    Frankie was the absolute worst. First, she decided to make the most minimal attire possible. Secondly, she made a rookie sewing mistake with the middle-seam ("We don't want to see the toes of the camel!") and had to rip and re-do. THEN she didn't calculate correctly her model's measurements---and had to rip and re-do. Yet even after that her model's butt hung out. I don't give two Tim Gunns about her losing her boyfriend, her dog, or her domicile---Frankie needed to go. I like the Girl and Her Amazing Technicolor Eyeglasses! Maybe she's a young Iris Apfel! Christian Siriano can do no wrong in my eyes. I like hearing critiques from not only a successful designer, but one who competed on PR. As for Karlie Kloss: She was afterwards on "Watch What Happens Live" and passed a "test" of sorts in identifying the designers of many of her runway outfits. She, too, has an interesting and knowledgeable perspective on designs. I didn't care for the opening gambit of a selective showing of some contestants' designs because there was no sense of their ouevre, so what was the point? The winning design was fabulous, darling [tm Isaac Mizrahi].

    S16.E15: Finale

    Eh. I didn't really care who won. West African cuisine---indeed, Eric's totally original "diaspora" approach---appeals to me (in theory, anyway) more than Boiled Peanuts and Buttermilk Cornbread. I also wasn't crazy about the forced culinary "fusion" by the show.

    Buddy vs. Duff

    The initial round of pastries made from super-thin sheets of dough was correctly judged, IMO. Duff shouldn't have altered the family recipe! But it wasn't even CLOSE with the Car Cakes! Buddy went big (and went home, heh) and cartoony. Duff went for artistry and accuracy. Score Round 2 for Duff!

    S23.E12: After the Final Rose

    Colton must view himself as the cat's pajamas, and that all he needs do is persist and insist and Cassie will want him. I don't like him. He's a big lunkhead, to me. Cassie is one of the most cynical contestants ever on a Reality Show, so obviously grabbing onto more screen time.
