The Fave off once again showing how it doesn’t actually matter if you can race well if you’re not good at that one particular skill you’re screwed, 3rd place to last is quite harsh.

k so the latest episode of TrashCan6 was not nearly as bad as the preview made it seem but that doesn't mean it was good? I thought the museum Route Marker was a good challenge that helped shuffle things up, but then the Face Off just kinda kills the momentum. I kinda understand why they fall into the trap of Face Offs because they're high stakes and you ahve teams directly competing against each other buuuuuut they're an overall net negative since they kinda lock in the order of the teams for the rest of the leg.

THAT BEING SAID, alol next week randomly looks like an OTTM mess?!?!?! which means the actual episode is going to be a letdown but let's enjoy it while we can!

I know I've already bitched about how the confessionals are not being utilized well at all and so many of the tasks suck, but I really feel like there's so much **** we're not being shown because these people are ~heroes~ or summat. Like why did Nancy/Mellisa and Courtney/Adam work together in the museum? I'd bet that it had to do with Nancy wanting to screw over the leeches Dylan/Kwame but god forbid any of the teams have conflict with each other!!!!! Why was Courtney sobbing at the pit stop? Why aren't we being shown any of these strategic moves or meltdowns?????

I'll end on a positive note. Episode highlight: the episode randomly cutting away from a boring Dylan confessional to show Martina saying DRAMA!!!!!!!! with absurd jazz hands for no discernible reason

The episode was really all about the magic/balloon task and the mishaps of the contestants with the funny scenes it created. It just happened naturally and was bit lucky for the editors really. The delivery task was just a commercial. A good point I saw made elsewhere was why are the faceoffs always sporting tasks? I had a feeling it would be a non-elimination, combining different planes with a faceoff later in the leg and some tasks that didn't look that hard. The dancing task wasn't one of the harder ones, the memorisation task would have been better without teams working together.

Martina is honestly saving this season, I'd have no interest in it if it wasn't for her

Another leg that was kinda ****ty in design but these people actually had to face some conflict for once so that was fun? I'm sad at the boot though

Also just wanted to say that the Roadblock was something you would find in some ****ty Proboards ORG not to mention that it was literally what you did during the round robin round on Supermarket Sweep

Even with the result(s), this Mexican leg > the three from the American edition.

Decentish leg that I don't think was actually that special but was still just soooo refreshing from the previous batch of legs we've dealt with. The telenovela task is fine and I guess it was nice for Dylan and Kwame to finally get some focus, especially good focus? The ending was #intense but the result was sad </3

And next leg looks tragic lmao a bunch of physical tasks and another F4 Face Off which like..... literally every team that has lost the F4 Face Off has been eliminated that leg so what the hell's the point. Obviously there have been a bunch of other factors and I really don't think any of those teams would've actually survived the leg even on their own merits, but it's still a #curse and a stupid one.

The F4 F-O hasn't been the main cause of elimination:

- CabGate

- Latin with English

- entomophobia

Yup, once again the Face Off ruins any credibility this show has. The only likeable/fun team screwed over by some pointless Face Off **** that is anti-climatic and not exciting to watch at all. They're almost always sports-related too, smh.

Anyway thank you Martina & Phil for giving us some amazing moments I couldn't care less who wins now, I'll probably wiki-watch the finale.

Rooting for Courtney and Adam even though they don't have a chance?

I don't even hate Taylor/Courtney, and I actually think Taylor's a huge cutie, but him being randomly good at flight simulators and wheelchair basketball made me roll my eyes so ****ing hard.

Finale #thots even thuough my stream kept freezing and stalling so I only paid attention to the last 20 minutes or so

Spoiler:

LMFAO Like obviously this would be so much more satisfying if Courtney and Adam got the full-fledged MORM edit that they deserved but still <3333333 easily the best pick to win from the finale and #truelove and this is revenge for Kelsey losing BBCan4 AND oh my god what a hilariously bad leg placement:

8/10 - 7/8 - 6/9 - 7/8 - 2/7 - 6/7 - 5/6 - 2/6 - 4/5 - 3/4 - 1/3 we love bottomgoddesses

Mess, I really didn't expect Courtney and Adam to win

Can't say this season was anything special but I NEED Martina on my screen again ASAP
