Cara Maria said on her formspring that the whole gray team had to go back to re-do the puzzle, not just Laurel. She said that they weren't even close like the episode made it seem. Even with Abe, you have to figure that they may have messed up the puzzle anyway, thus screwing themselves over either way.
I will say this about Abram... I didn't care for him during his younger years on the challenges (including his RR season where he made a few comments that pissed me off), but it's nice to see that he's grown up. I enjoyed seeing him on The Island and was upset when he quit so early on. I'm hoping he comes back someday because he is one hell of a competitor.
Paula flipping her **** was amazing!!! I like her more and more every reunion! I wish she was this entertaining on the actual challenge! She's usually fairly low key until she gets "screwed over" In Derrick's podcast Brad was on and said that the whole story line of Tori wanting to leave so she didn't lose the final for her team was made up by production and the real reason was that they wouldn't let her call work to ask for the extra 2 weeks off, but MTV edited them explaining that out of the reuion. That's pretty interesting...
[QUOTE=Old Friend;227664]Exactly. To even say in the first place that the final challenge happened the way it did or there was some sort of a conspiracy involved is a little much. I don't think the final mission is meant to be fun in the first place. Money is on the line. Also, how was it anymore extreme than any other final excluding the hype from TJ? Also, I'm loving the TJ shout out at the end.[/QUOTE] Did you not see the end of the post stating it was my opinion? You can have yours and I respect that, but I thought the final challenge was basically a marathon. A foot race. Those check points were not interesting or creative. Yes, money is on the line, but as a show, it should be interesting and exciting enough for people to want to see more. Or else, the show would go down I think. Older challenges were great, we all know that, but IMO, what set them apart was that they were part fun, and exciting, while still being partly about athleticism. Look at other challenges- the Gauntlet- males could go against females in elimination rounds because they were games that either could win. I thought basically that this finale, was the worst I've ever seen out of this show. I hated The Island, but at least that finale was somewhat a creative idea. [QUOTE=llcooljonas;227706]And Katie did state clearly on Twitter that Laurel DID contact her to get Eric's number, but she gave her the number to the wrong Eric. When you're drinking, thrown a curveball like she was and had everyone watching you be put in this awkward situation, how would you have acted?[/QUOTE] Plus didn't Laurel say that before that happened, when she;d cone to hang out ( or sit and eat) with johnny and Big Easy, Easy would basically embarrass her and tell her that she can't hang out with them, and Johnny would have to tell him that Laurel is good she can hang with them. As well as before she attacked him, he began to tell her about her bacne? Plus I don't see where Easy is coming from at all. Of course she wanted to apologize when she saw the footage, she was drunk and prob couldn't remember most of what happened. Not excusing her ways, but didn't someone also say in their opinion, it made Easy seem worst because he came on the reunion show to basically talk down on Laurel for talking down on him? I actually kind of agreed with Abe but especially with Tyler. It's overdone. let it go MTV. Still didn't like the host. Didn't like that whole segment. IMO, they had better things they could talk about.... athough Laurel's face when they mentioned Big Easy was there, was priceless. LOL. I'd prefer to see Camila/Brandon/Paula/Toad issues than Laurel/Eric. [QUOTE=Lamb Chop!!!;227728]I will say this about Abram...

Plus, I kinda agree with him. These challenges seem a lot about just getting drunk. At least in older ones, they were sober most times. They did other things, but then again, they had a lot more freedom, so he can blame production for that.
- Johnny wins vs. Derrick when it comes to height, weight and mouth. Derrick easily wins for heart, determination and common decency. Derrick's no saint, but at the end of the day, his mother raised him well. - Production threw Brad and Tori under the bus because they knew going in that it was their last challenge. But, then, I'm not sure any traditional heterosexual couple will be welcomed by BMP. Just not their thing up there in the valley... - I find myself thinking that Laurel is a bundle of raw talent in need of remoulding. I get where she's coming from, but there are things to keep inside one's head that otherwise only serve to sabotage one's self when stated in front of a camera where a hateful editor will gladly exploit you ala the Marquis de Sade. - Paula, Paula, Paula... I swore I'd never do this again for another reality person, but when you recognize that it's past time for rehab, call me. - Tina. Why? Production, did you get what you paid for? Fools both... - Scooter (yes, I know you will hear about this), Eric, really? You had to know the truth about Katie's mistake with the phone number and Laurel's previous private sincere apology, but you couldn't let it go...and during the reunion you let it go on and on which is why Abe and Tyler reacted as they did. When will you learn that you must keep alcohol out of the Green Room? And you should have shown Tori's epic reply to Johnny's remark. I love you, bro, but this was not your finest edit... and you need to stop being an enabler.

We all know he was beating a dead horse... but he knows what people like, drama. Unfortunately it was the most boring segment ever (except when Maria shut up Tyler) but Scooter definitely thought it would be brilliant to have him as a special guest.

You can't tell me that Maria thought it was a good idea, going on and on and on in the studio. The truth is that when Scooter, the exec producer, or the director speaks into her ear piece, the words come out of her mouth. There is a unavoidable certain pathos to their symbiosis.
He did think wrong and I am sure she didn't want to spend to much time rehashing on the incident! I didn't know Scooter was the one speaking into Maria's ear piece. Thank you for informing me :) He should have cut it down. We only saw 15 minutes, of an everlasting, repetitive fight.
I would love to know what Tori's reply to Johnny was. I thought it was odd that she didn't say anything really during that whole "Brad's wife's a *****" segment.

Cara Maria and Emily are so hot. They looked great at the reunion. :) I can't wait to see them do more shows.
[QUOTE=Adrian!!!!!!;227703]Is that what people are really saying ?? WOW !! I wonder what they were saying after JEKD and Susie barely took down those two powerhouse girls on the Ruins final ?? Can't discredit the Red team... a win is a win and a ton of money is a ton of money !![/QUOTE] Haha This^ Also, on the Island JEvKD went against 3 girls and Ryan, who is arguably a worse competitor than Laurel... In fact, Johnny's 2 wins were both against all female squads in the final Johnny you sly devil you :shifty:

[QUOTE=Bombshell;227837]What did she say?[/QUOTE] I too would like to know what Tori said- she's definitely not one to hold her tongue.

[B]In fact, Johnny's 2 wins were both against all female squads in the final[/B] Johnny you sly devil you :shifty:[/QUOTE] Are you intentionally counting Ryan as a female?
Haha no, just generalizing the same way people are claiming red beat a bunch of girls, even thought Luke was present too... I could see how it would seem like that, I probably shouldve replace "all" with "majority" I guess.

I'd prefer to see Camila/Brandon/Paula/Toad issues than Laurel/Eric.[/QUOTE] She said that in a podcast with Derrick & Kenny, I think. She said Johnny & Eric were sitting having lunch and she went to sit with them, Eric was a ***** and told her he couldn't sit with them, Johnny stood up for her and was like listen, chill out, dude. Later, Eric teased her about back acne or whatever. He played the martyr role very well, sucked up an extra 15 minutes of pseudo-fame and what should have been a one-time argument wound up being this holy ****storm. Mtv handled this one very irresponsibly. I get that bullying is bad, but using someone as a human sacrifice to prove a point when the supposed victim was just as guilty, then dragging it out at the reunion was ridiculous. The girl's getting death threats from this, which should have been a sign to smooth it over with all parties amicably behind closed doors - not pull a Jerry Springer and omg your baby daddy's other woman storms out. The other cast were right to get pissed. They lasted longer than Eric, who was only there for one purpose - drama, yet was out of the game for quite awhile. Jenn & Emily barely got a word in edgewise and I would have loved to have heard from them what it was liking doing the final alone. Camila got screwed by it by not being able to come out. Worst reunion show to date, in my opinion. [QUOTE=V1man;227773]- [B]Production threw Brad and Tori under the bus because they knew going in that it was their last challenge[/B].

They made an easy scapegoat for the whole red team, distracting from Chet's ************* and other things. Why married or serious couples go on the challenge when they'll always be met with disdain from the rest of the cast, I'll never know. I agree on the Laurel point, as well. She's got immense potential, but could use some guidance in the what not to do department, but I think that comes from trial and error, like everything else in life. I like reading the little insight you guys have. Laurel was drunk clearly and Paula looked like she'd had a few drinks on top of a Xanax. Sending them out in front of an audience like that, planning a stunt like bringing Eric out, that's pretty irresponsible. They could have fed them to lions right there in the studio and gotten the same reaction. The look on Laurel's face made me feel bad for her even more.
[QUOTE=llcooljonas;228047]Camila got screwed by it by not being able to come out. Worst reunion show to date, in my opinion.[/QUOTE] Cara Maria said that Camila wasn't invited, she bought her own ticket to watch the show. Hence why she wouldn't get brought out.

I don't know about that Cara Maria thing, but Camila was very well dress, hair done, make-up, and it looked like she was going to go up. She was behind the audience like Eric the whole time, and they entered very quietly.

[B]The look on Laurel's face made me feel bad for her even more.[/B][/QUOTE] I didn't feel bad for her at all. If she wants to be treated in normal way, she shouldn't have been drunk on a reunion show. Shows a lot of immaturity to me.
[QUOTE=llcooljonas;228047] The look on Laurel's face made me feel bad for her even more.[/QUOTE]Why? Cause she wasn't smart enough not to get sloppy drunk before taping???? Laurel brings all of this on herself. If she'd lay off the booze and try to conduct herself with a clear head she wouldn't come off as such an obnoxious buffoon. Ditto for Paula.....the only difference is Paula becomes a chocolate mess of tears when she's shwasted while Laurel becomes a mean, nasty shrew. Both would be wise to either lay off the liquor all together or at least cut back if they know what is right for them.
You know what chaps my ***? People didn't give two ****s about teej before he got in his accident and now everyone is in love with him. I aint talking about the cast members either.
[QUOTE=tjhallow;228091]You know what chaps my ***? People didn't give two ****s about teej before he got in his accident and now everyone is in love with him.

I know your comment is not directed towards me cause as far as I can remember I've never even commented on TJ Lavin in terms of his accident or otherwise, but I think it's strange that it "chaps your ***" that people are rooting for him, like him, and hope he gets better. Maybe I'm misunderstanding or missing something but I honestly don't get why this would make you angry? If anything I think it is awesome that people are rallying behind him and letting him know that he is appreciated. Sure, they might not have expressed how much they liked him, but it just seems like a perfect case of you don't know what you got till it's (almost, in TJ's case) gone.

It affected her ability to express herself, but it doesn't detract from how ridiculous it was. She could have been stoned cold sober and I'd still have felt bad, because the SITUATION was uncomfortable to even watch.

"He's so funny." It's fake as hell. Especially when people ***** and ***** about how hes a ****t host who can't mind his own business regarding his opinion on quitters on other castmembers athleticism.
