Karyn is my fav, shooby is a close second, and the 2nd boot(we doing spoilers or naw) was robbed

I'm also confused on the spoiler policy in this thread, I'm pretty sure there's already spoilers farther up tbh. Agree on the robbed boot.

Shooby is cool, everything he says sounds so forced and on the nose. I can't tell if it's because he just doesn't interact with a large amount of people in his real life or if he's just doing what he thinks makes him look good  

Woo Sammie gonna get draining as hell if she begins to act like how she is on social media like girl relax you're on a Netflix show we have to go out of our way to search for lmao 

Almost finished the second season of the UK version(couldn't find a link for season 1). Such a different game. Us version are already talking alliances meanwhile UK was basically a popularity contest where those not in with the most common influencers were waiting to get picked off until close to the end where they finally banded together. I love the all strategy way more.

Also I think being a catfish is a dumb as hell plan, I guess Seaburn and Karyn may not have gotten cast otherwise though. It's just too hard to have genuine conversations when you're constantly worried about slipping up, plus all the games are designed around outing catfish

I haven't seen the second season yet to be able to compare the two, but I've seen the first, and there was definitely talk about alliances and working together and getting people on your side to vote together and stuff. Not as early as the US version has started, but towards the middle, there was definitely efforts to be strategic, both in terms of ratings and working with others.

I've heard bad things about S2, which has me reluctant to start it, but the wait for the next batch of US episodes is hard, so I might start it regardless.

I changed the thread title. The spoiler policy going forward will be that anything that has "aired" is fair game. So, the first four episodes thus far and the next four on Wednesday.  

I think if people want a general discussion about the show without spoilers, the Reality Show Generic thread is the place and if people want to talk endgame spoilers beyond what has been released, a new thread should be started. 

 

Ok perfect. I hated Alana and glad she got eliminated first. I was 100% with Sammie on that, the pretty girl clique was annoying and dumb gameplay lol.

I need Joey GONE. I can’t think of who he reminds me of but that man has gotta blast like yesterday fr fr

Unfortunately I don't see Joey going anywhere, in fact I think he'll be one of the people in the last ranking. No shot of winning but I don't see Shooby letting him get voted out and I see him ranking high for a while.

Sammie will probably get blindsided tbh but again we haven't seen the new arrivals and if they were smart. They'd just team up with their rankings to ensure at least one of them is influencer

A Sammie blind side would be lit. 

So should we expect the new episodes to drop at midnight?

They usually do midnight west coast time

Almost finished episode 8, sucks to see Miranda go, I really liked her, though I'm not sure that's a popular opinion. Dumb move by Joey to not save her when she was putting him at the top of the ratings(which he was probably aware of), where as him and Chris seem to be putting eachother mid table every time. Weird him saying they had such a good connection when he saved Sammie over her basically for being the girl he liked more.

Also "**** me in the..." "Adam!" had me dying laughing

Edit: Finished. The whole Sean reveal is super fishy, I was wondering why she had pictures of her real self in her album when she came in. Pretty sure she was basically planted into the show so they could have this whole guilty catfish reveal thing

And I'm committed to rooting for Joey to come through in the end now, with Sammie as my number 2. If the final ranking is 4 or 5 OG's like I'm expecting now then I think they have the best chances to win, everyone's gonna rank Shooby low since they'll see him as a threat

I also liked Miranda. Surprised that Joey didn't save her. She wasn't really a standout, but seemed really nice and wasn't playing too hard. She was just being herself.

she was for sure playing to hard. Was there a person she didn't try flirting with

I guess when I think of playing hard I think of pretending to be someone else. Not a fan of the catfishes. 

Sure, she was flirty. That was her entire game.

yeah but she was flirty with everyone which was playing to hard, everyone else had picked some people not all people

me being on the nose about Shooby. Lmao I swear his reality tv archetype is my least favorite of all time. It's why people like that irl always have no friends 

Really dissapointed in the new players casting. Started off strong with a lot of diversity but all 6 additional players have been white, with only Miranda being LGBT. Like Bill looks exactly like Alex's catfish and he's mad boring too

Just finished watching and sucks that Karyn went home. I feel like she was messy and could be a good shield for others. The period group chat with "Rebeccah" had me dead.

If they dont take out Shooby before the final or w.e they are dumb he is going to win. How do you guys feel about the pair of mom/son twist?

I'm pretty meh on it, it's gonna add some humor but if they needed to do a twist they should have had the two of them play the mother and then she could have talked like herself but have him help her speak to younger people and people may actually suspect a catfish She really doesn't have anything to add gameplay wise since he fits in fine anyways, if anything she's a liabilitity if Ed isn't comfortable saying certain things to others while she's there, she's basically there to cook him dinner. It was clearly just done because they didn't have much going on for the last few contestants coming in, same reason they probably planted Sean in for her reveal. Poor Sammy though she's the only non catfish girl and there's a bunch of dudes with no personalities that are all probably trying to flirt with her all day(besides Shooby & Chris)

I think the OG's have some secret pact going on, there really is no other reason for Joey picking Chris over Miranda, and it's going to make for a predictable few episodes

Just caught up on the second batch of episodes, and I'm really bummed to see Karyn/Mercedeze go, she was my favorite. I think it's pretty unfair that Antonio got to leave such a damning message as he left, I've never seen anyone get to do that before. I think it would've been one thing if he shared suspicions about a catfish and called someone out like that, but to share info about the person he went to see, even if he didn't name them, was giving away way too much; there's only so many people it could've been in general, but then narrow down the liklihood of who he'd go see, and he may as well have named her.

Alex/Adam is annoying and came on way too strong. Seaburn is laying it on way too thick with the shy/innocent act, I can't believe more people aren't calling that out. I can understand not assuming he's a catfish, but I'd definitely think that shyness was a huge strategy.

The mom/son duo is a weird choice. They did a duo twist in S2 of the UK version, but it was giving two players that had been blocked together, a second chance at the game by being a catfish - that the show chose and forced them to do - together. I think it would've made more sense if the mom/son duo were putting their heads together to be a catfish, because as is, I don't really see what the mother is adding here? Other than giving him company. He's just being himself, so it seems kinda pointless.

I was disappointed the portrait game was so nice and tame. I guess that's kind of expected since it wasn't anonymous iirc, so people weren't going to get too savage, and there isn't really much drama going on at the moment, but that game has been pretty dramatic with call outs in the UK version, so it was a bit of a bummer.

The Sean twist/reveal should be interesting, this is a first for the series, which makes me think it's kinda staged. Nobody has ever been able send pictures over chat before or just randomly change their profile pictues like that. Why does she even have a picture of her real self, when she was supposed to be using her friend's pictures? I would've bought a picture of her friend and her together being in her album (and her uploading it to her profile next chance she got), but judging by the preview, she sends a solo picture of herself over the chat, which has never been done before. She could have discussed it with production and they allowed it for the dramatic moment, but still feels weird.

Hate that it's almost over, but since it's probably fairly cheap for Netflix to produce, hopefully there's another, longer season.

FWIW Miranda is retweeting the shit out of posts about her and Joey, wonder if there's a chance that Joey isn't a f boy and they actually got together after the show

Rebbeca literally playing this game like emoblackthot is sending tf outta me 

Seaburn pretending to be Rebecca is doing the MOST/ being so extra with the phrasing I'm dying. 

The OG cast was good but the newbie choices have been sort of boring. The mother/son duo was not needed and Bill is nice but bland. We have 9 players now and only 4 episodes left so I'm hoping these episodes are longer otherwise we are going to have a really rushed end game and will probably bring this season down.

Seaburn is such a character. He needs to be on other shows cause this can't be the only time we see of him.
