    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    There is some Western influence with the growth of convenience foods, but at the same time there could be native dishes/foods with fat (such as coconuts in the South Pacific). Non-fatty/more healthy foods are often more expensive to buy, for example fat free yoghurt is often more expensive than...

    Exercise is also important. The US does rank very high for obesity, but you'll also find the South Pacific, arab countries, the caribbean and Central/South America to have problems. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_body_mass_index

    BBUSA: All Stars 2 on CBS

    Well according to that David is out in the cold and Da'Vonne and Bayleigh are in a great position (which I don't believe). The whole 'black girl magic' thing was so obvious, and it was obvious they would want to get David as well. They tried to float around but that will only get them so far.

    BBUSA: All Stars 2 on CBS

    I'm not bothered about 'allstar' stuff, that's old fashioned hype which I don't think Survivor even uses now, I just call them returnee seasons. You could even call them 'producers favourites' seasons on Big Brother as some get continually recalled even though it doesn't feel worth it, and they...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    Well started off bad but then got better, however until it's controlled everywhere through either a vaccine or better treatment/containment it will continue to be a problem worldwide

    The Big Brother game has always been worse than Survivor, which makes it funny how some people in the past have been hyped up by production as legends.

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    It's not about league tables of countries though like the media says, it's about eliminating a worldwide virus or containing it. The lack of co-ordination is really a major issue and the media worldwide is more interested in national politics than the global issues.

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    The media has been terrible worldwide, I said on my longer post a few weeks ago that things differ across countries and much still isn't known. The WHO hasn't helped that much either. They said it isn't seasonal but there have been studies showing that increasing humidity does seem to reduce...

    I wanted Keesha to stay just because Kevin mopes around and is obviously weak. Maybe we might have seen more from Keesha if things blew up.

    BBUSA: All Stars 2 on CBS

    As I expected the 4th episode wasn't up to much with the predictability of the eviction and the vote wasn't even close (as is the norm early on). At least we did get to see the next HoH in the episode, but the result didn't change the house dynamics at all. Which doesn't bode well for the...

    Kaysar took the risk and Janelle followed his lead.

    BBUSA: All Stars 2 on CBS

    I also thought about the tactic of competing to keep things as the HoH wants. But with it being only for 3 weeks the only real suspense would appear to be the first two weeks. Anybody who still has the pass by week 3 may as well use it anyway, they can always say they are using it to help the...

    BBUSA: All Stars 2 on CBS

    Well concentrating on the episode rather than rumours, I enjoyed it well enough. They set up the story of Cody's plan and how it failed. The question of the episode was why did both of them go for safety if they were about to save each other? The answer may be that there could have been a...

    Big Brother and Coronavirus

    BBUS appeared to invoke the 'bubble' concept which has been praised for the NBA games recently, suggesting they can keep the show completely isolated from the outside.

    BBUSA: All Stars 2 on CBS

    OTT was a good concept that could have been developed, I was trying to watch some of the live feed yesterday (before any competition happened) and there were so many blackouts it was unwatchable. The problem with these things is that a lot of people just get used to it, and as with the...
