    I already got it a while back because I started getting into Big Brother and wanted to go through all of those seasons. Then I started going through some old seasons of Survivor. So basically I only use it for reality/competition shows, haha.

    They have a 30 day free trial so I did that

    where would i be if i was my brain Prestigious

    I got the 0 day trial when Survivor was wrapping up and kept it as I was going back and watching older seasons. I was about to cancel it but they have the rights to a soccer tournament that I want to watch. So yeah. I currently don't have HBO Max so that make sit easier
     
  4. Just a little tip for y'all, I was thinking of cancelling the CBS service right when I subbed so I wouldn't forget to cancel before the trial ended and it gave me the option of paying half price for the next two months if I don't cancel so I'll prob do that if I wanna watch more seasons after this month.

    I've been watching real world since I was a kid, so since around 2000. Hawaii is my earliest memory. I definitely watched all these challenge seasons but don't remember shit, my memory is pretty terrible from years of substance abuse lol (I've been clean 5 years now) it has been fantastic watching them again.


    Just about to finish Rivals and it's the best season I have rewatched so far, heavily recommend it if anyone is wondering which seasons to choose. An all-star cast and some grrrrreat fights as well.
     
  5. Also, Laurel is an absolutely horrible human being.

    its very fitting she teamed with Vinny in Fresh Meat since he is also a horrible human being (albeit much, much, much worse than Laurel. They’re not really comparable for their horribleness unless there’s stuff about Laurel I don’t know)

    imo Rivals was a big turning point for the show. I think the peak of the show is from Rivals through Battle of the Exes 2. Not saying the seasons prior or subsequent aren’t good by any means. I just think that stretch of seasons are pretty flawless
     
  8. Laurel was brutally verbally abusive to Big Easy in Cutthroat and Paula in Rivals. Like saying the absolute worst things possible to them and not apologizing for any of it. Disgusting to watch.
     
  9. I believe it was the first time they had a 2 day final challenge as well. Rivals definitely brought it to a new level. Mostly because it had a lot of heavy hitters.
     
  10. Only bummer about these seasons is a lack of the reunion shows

    I never watch the reunion shows. I watched one, or part of one with The Miz hosting and it was just awful. Seems like all at it is is people sniping at each other and then screaming over and over again. That’s not entertaining to me lol

    if i don't like your avatar i don't like you

    Oh yeah I definitely remember that. It’s just, there’s a major reason Vinny will never be back on the show in any capacity that goes wayyyyyy beyond being verbally abusive.

    but with that said those scenes of Laurel yelling at Eric and Paula are like permanently imprinted in my brain. Also how she treats Cara Maria at times is super terrible.

    I love the reunion shows lol. The one where it played out in real time with no edits and CT got drunk and was talking shit to the host is an all timer.

    Although some of these later season reunion shows have been admittedly awful, particularly the dirty 30, vendettas, and final reckoning.
     
  15. I'm stumped on Vinny, what did he do!? I can't remember
     
  16. Signifire

    Headphones blaring three stacks Supporter

    I think he means Kenny
     
  17. Ah yes, he does

    I literally just talked about Kenny and Laurel in Fresh Meat lol
     
  18. Rivals was Kenny, Evan and Evelyn's last season. Evelyn went to Harvard afterwards and became a lawyer or something? She's a god damn impressive human being
     
  19. marsupial jones

    if i don't like your avatar i don't like you

    Ah yes sorry meant Kenny. No idea where Vinny came from and couldn’t even remember if there ever was a Vinny until it was mentioned above lmao

    not sure why I always screw up Kenny’s name, very weird.
     
  20. bobby_runs

    where would i be if i was my brain Prestigious

    Well Vinny was the guy that was Sarah’s partner on a season where he got kicked off for ripping off a woman’s shirt.
     
  21. Kenny was basically from my hometown, he's my buddies cousin. I went out to a diner with him and a bunch of people one time. He was very quiet and chilled out but I mean we went out to dinner, so he acted like anyone acts when having a meal in a public establishment.

    So I mentioned that season 14 is missing from All Access. Just finished The Islands and the next episode that starts up is episode 2 of season 17 (The Duel II). I was already confused why a season would be missing from the show, but now I'm even more confused as to why one individual episode would be missing from a season. Really odd.

    EDIT: Turns out that episode was the CT/Adam 'fight', so that seems a likely reason why that one's not on there for viewing.
     
  23. Hard fucking yikes at Emily going blackface and acting like Ty ,her ex-boyfriend, in Battle of the Exes.

    Yeah that was a really bad look for her. Felt so bad for Ty in that one because you know how much it crushed him to see that from someone he cared about.

    to be fair she had no idea what blackface was and was very apologetic once she learned what she did was wrong (if I recall). Not to put the blame on someone else, but shouldn’t someone else is the house who knew told her that was a bad idea? I assume someone had to know what blackface was in that house (if people knew what they were doing. I don’t recall the specifics of that episode and why she did that. Halloween? Or some goofy party thing they were doing?)

    and I have to tend to believe Emily didn’t know what blackface was because I didn’t know what blackface was when I saw that episode. I had to google what the hell they were talking about and why it was causing an issue in the episode.
