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.

Would you go on the show if you weren’t?

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

Good to see Josh and Austin getting through on MKR. Not because I like them, just because they are like that bloke who doesn't post anymore on overdrive... what's his name again?

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.

I only caught a few parts at the end tonight, I'll try catch up tmrw. Maybe they deserve each other. He did say he was attracted to that type. That comment left me shaking my head TBH.

Go with Hill House. It’s a cracker and you won’t regret it
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.

What a fizzer #MAFS 2019 is proving to be... people just not turning up. You've got to give it to the producers to convince so many people to stay when they simply are getting "doctor's orders" not to turn up!

I have been watching "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" on Netflix.

Question for TR... do Japanese people actually kneel and "greet their house" in real life?

Yeah I really enjoyed it.

Have you seen Castle Rock? It’s not too bad. Based on the Stephen King universe. A lot of Easter eggs from his books

#MAFS Now there's another "wife" preying on one or more other "husband". This show is compulsive viewing, but they are clearly just deliberately generating this stuff.

Of course! that's the entire point
They dont want happy well matched couples, if they get one it's dumb luck (or in their case, unluck)
They want chaos

No, because they're not bonkers.
