I'm not sure which one Sam is as I only saw the first 3 episodes and then caught last night's. Who the hell is the brunette who just sat there last night people watching and critiquing everyone - also made the comments about partner swapping and orgies? Don't get me wrong I find most on the show quite weird and somewhere on some sort of spectrum but that brunette just comes across as extremely something else.

On previous years have any of the couple's lasted? I could see maybe the cricketer and the redhead actually working but not many of the others.

Sam is the guy who went off to New Zealand for his ex’s mother’s funeral.

The woman you’re talking about is Innes, who’s not happy as her “husband” Bronson was a stripper. She’s crazy, he’s got to get rid of her too.

I think they all seem a little unhinged to some degree. I'd imagine all but about 2 of them have very active Instagram accounts. Sam really could have told her what he was doing before bailing? Those two are more likely to kill each other than have a successful relationship.

Reports are Sam was instantly unhappy with his “wife” and wanted to bail immediately. And he doesn’t last much longer.

They're all calling him a player. Looks more like a bloated member of the beach boys to me.

Just watched the first episode of "You" on Netflix. Not usually the sort of thing I'd watch, but it was very good, for the genre.

I really enjoyed Fyre. The amazing thing about it was that the offenders filmed it all themselves, even when they were deliberately breaking the law in the final scam.

Yeah I couldn’t believe that. There were so many things that just made me cringe.
Having the get out clause to using the island if they use the Pablo Escobar reference, followed up by them using that in the promotion killed me

No, I was thinking of that really crazy poster.

#MAFS How DUMB is Sam, responding to Innes?

I feel sorry for Matthew... he did not ask for that complication. As best we know now.

Finished this now, it was great. I love films with foreshadowing and this has a ton of it, some I picked up on at the time, others not until later. I’m surprised I hadn’t heard any spoilers for this so that made it a lot better.

Also I had watched The Shining for the first time a couple of months ago and there were some similarities there.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

They dont want happy well matched couples, if they get one it's dumb luck (or in their case, unluck)
