    Wow, I didn’t know filming started pre pandemic. Any bets on who gained the most weight?

    Seems like the darts were the obvious right choice there. Even if you suck at darts you’ll probably bullseye once every 20 tries. So most teams can expect to both get it once every 40 rounds, and you can try again so quickly that’s always going to be quicker than making cakes.

    I’m surprised Norway was not in the EU.

    I didn't realize that, either. They should have known about the UK, though.

    There were so many ridiculous mistakes - like who hasn't heard of London cops called bobbies? And those two idiots at the mail sorting task... sheesh. Yes, sometimes it really can be that easy.

    I'd have picked the cake decorating over the darts. I've played darts, and am terrible at it.

    The point is, even if you're terrible at darts, statistically you'll hit a couple bullseyes. Probably faster than a task that just takes a long time. Arun and person whose name I can't remember were bad at darts and they came in 3rd.

    My point is that when it comes to tasks where you know you're bad at and have a very good chance at doing the other one, pick the one you're better at.

    I don't have a lot of strength or hand-eye coordination when it comes to throwing things. I've never managed to hit a baseball more than about 3 times in my life, and playing darts for me is best done when you don't care how damaged the wall gets around the dart board.

    On the other hand, decorating baked stuff is something I'm good at.

    Something that will take an hour if you do it well versus something that will take 20 minutes if you do it poorly.

    I didn't even know a new season was starting, and I came home from work and my wife had it on. What a pleasant surprise.
    I'll be curious to see if any of those couples are now separated after the COVID break.

    That’d be kind of funny. “We broke up during COVID but we still want a million bucks, so…” I’d be a little surprised if Love Island didn’t break up.

    Also prepared for a few of them to just be overweight after.

    Or the opposite. It would be wonderful if we could refrain from body-shaming people here and just be happy the show is back. :vulcan:

    I'm not body shaming anyone, I gained like 25 pounds during COVID, it's just a fact it happens, nothing shameful.

    It's your business if you choose to share about yourself. But I am just asking that when we mock the players in this season that it be because they made a stupid decision, not because they gained weight.

    Well, I'm not sorry to see that team eliminated. Holy crap, that must have been a pity clue at the end. I had to cover my ears.

    So they're starting in Switzerland next week, and they've brought back some old teams to replace the ones who couldn't return. I wonder who they could be (hopefully not any annoying ones).
