****ing hilarious so far. i wasnt sure about the "theme" at first but i enjoyed it.
Two definitely aired.

They are doing a great job so far. There are a lot of little neuroses among the characters that are going to drive Chase nuts and make him laugh or get uncomfortable.

Like “The Model” who has a portfolio of pics with her, but they are hardcore porn and she seems to think it’s cool to just show people.

Or the “Trophy Wife” of the host, who seems to be stealing his thunder occasionally during ceremonies, annoying him.

The “deaf girl” has dropped the ball already and according to previews she’s going to really drop it in a future episode.

My mom of all people told me she PVRed this show and that I "had to watch" it. I didn't know anything about it so I sat down to humor her and wound up laughing my ass off. ****ing brilliant.

The deaf girl does seem to drop the ball pretty hard a couple of times (once we saw and one in the future) but hey, that`s gotta be a tough gig...imagine pretending you`re deaf full-time in a real life situation. Guarantee you`re going to mess up too. So for that reason I`m thinking she`s not going to stay on the show for long - just too easy to unintentionally screw up.

Oh yeah, totally, it's like they're getting cockier as to what they will try to get away with... which is probably what the audience wants to see. A deaf girl who is not really deaf is a big risk, and I'm sure they realize that. I wonder if they practiced enough how to "act deaf". it's sooooo easy to slip up.

You might be right that she won't be there very long, but I'm sure they have an "order" to follow and I don't envision them changing it based on how it's going with her. But I could be wrong.

It'd be awesome if at some point Chase was getting too suspicious of the deaf girl, so they have her confess to Chase that she's not really deaf and it's all a ruse by her to try and get an advantage over everyone else, or sympathy votes.

It would be pretty far-fetched but 1) so is everything else on the show and 2) reality contestants lie all the time about their professions, who they're related to, how old they are, if they're married, playing for "sick" relatives, etc all to gain an advantage...it really isn't that far out there.

I think it was a dumb idea to have a deaf character. It's pretty damn hard to pull that off in a "reality show"

A mute person would have been easier

I don't think so. They may have an idea, but they basically have to go with the flow and how Chase plays the game to figure out who they evict

The spirit animal ceremony was hilarious. I'm really disappointed that Lorenzo was the first to go.

How could the Asian not BS better than that? That was terrible. The girl who somehow graduated college at 14 is now looking to become a bounty hunter.

Chase is an interesting character. He's really perceptive to certain things, but completely oblivious to the bigger picture.

It was on at 10 pm EST. It was an OK episode. Nothing over the top ridiculous except the love triangle, and that was overplayed.

They should have kept Lorenzo around for longer, he could get away with doing crazy things because of his B list celebrity background, and Chase didn't suspect a thing.

Anyone else notice Chase already had the cut on his forehead in the beginning of the episode while talking about the love triangle? Guess that all took part after the incident.

I thought it was weak that both Allison and Jake struggled with pretty basic questions about their background and what they do "in the real world". If they spent a year preparing the whole thing, they should have at least researched their characters' backgrounds a bit more.

Pretty good episode, not as hilarious as the first 2. The beaver bit in the ceremony was great though.

I also wish they kept Lorenzo. Wonder why they got rid of him so quickly.

I noticed what I think was a major continuity goof.

When they went to get the “real” perp and filled up the van, did you notice that when they announced it on the couch and when they went in the van, Lavernius and the asian girl were nowhere to be found? I think they tried to pass off footage from two days later, as though it happened that day.

Just watch, Lavernius and the Asian are the next two to go, on days 4 and 5. This scene was filmed on day 6 but they threw it into the end of episode 3 as the “start” of day 4 with a bit of a cliffhanger ending.

Either they wanted to force a cliffhanger ending, or ran out of good footage from day 3 to put in episode 3, but in any case they had to think we were not paying good enough attention. That was horrible.

Last night's episode was good. Much better than the 2nd. Especially Randy's speech during the elimination ceremony.

So glad Randy is sticking around, provides so many great lines..

Loved that episode. Chase is so hardcore, it's hilarious.

Question. Does Chase get any money in the end? He's such a good guy, hope he gets something out of it.

Yes, he gets the $100,000 he thinks he's competing for.

it's starting to look like I was right about that continuity goof...

Oh, and since this show has always been about big twists, I am guessing that Randy screws Jake's wife.

Fantastic episode. This show is hilarious. As for what happened at the end of the episode...they could easily say that yes, the prisoner escape was a setup and a test from Jake for the contestants. That's one way to wiggle out of the dilemma for next week, while continuing to convince Chase the show is real.

I don't get it. What did Chase see?

I thought all he saw was some crew men working with ladders and lights and stuff. And if that's the case, why not just say "Yes, Chase, you're on a reality TV show. There are crewmen around here for that reality TV show. Now that we're done stating the obvious, back to bounty hunting"?

Think the house was on "lock down." If there was a real criminal possibly lose on the compound would anyone really be just walking around outside?

True, I hadn't considered that. Still, just chalk it up to "Oh, they weren't informed".
