Brad's first point in his duel with Landon was lame, TJ blew the horn like he was stopping play after both guys had their rings, Landon stopped, and Brad just runs over and clips his hook on.



Yeah, that pissed me the hell off.


I also don't like how they are doing the final challenge and the guys having to wait for the girls to get there and being attatched.
If you were right, I'd agree with you

It's the second time he's squeaked into the finals picking up a cheap win in the last duel. He never does anything the whole challenge & then magically just takes out the two best competitors on each show under pretty fishy circumstances.

Apparently one of the castmembers is alleging that the final duel between Landon and Brad was fixed for Brad (not allowing Landon to wrestle when they had let people do that all season, not penalizing Brad for not going straight for his hook after retrieving Landon's ring in the last round) to win and go to the finals over Landon. With Landon being a professional mountain bike racer and with all the uphill mountain biking that was involved in the final, there was fear from production that he'd kill everybody and it would be a boring finale, so they did what they could to get 3 more evenly matched people at the end. At least that's what this castmember is alleging.

If that's it that's ridiculous because he would have just had to wait for the next female anyway. I totally buy into this though.

Didn't Landon get DQ'd in the first round of the final duel because he didn't go for the clip? So, you're saying that Brad did it later, but Landon really did it first, meaning they are both in the wrong.

Still though, he would've had a comfortable lead because they had to wait for the girls after the biking part, and he would've paired up with the first girl that got there & would've retained his lead anyways.

Yeah he got DQed in the first round for not going straight to his hook after he got Brad's ring off. In the other episodes though, people wrestled to keep each other away from their hooks after they'd already retrieved the rings. They said Landon didn't go straight over to hook his ring on and he got DQed in round 1. But in round 3, Brad didn't go straight over to hook his ring on either. He went over and hit Landon's rope dealy to make it swing around and harder to hook the ring onto. That should've been a DQ too since they DQed Landon earlier for not going straigh to his hook.

Interesting. The producers probably should've planned ahead, since they know that he is a pro biker.

With the original casts heading in, I bet they put all their chips in a CT/Evan/Mark finale that they didn't figure Landon would be in the equation at the end. Evan and Mark were pretty much locks to make it to the end but after CT eliminated himself, that third spot was up for grabs.

That's another thing I didn't like about this show. Mark didn't even do a duel and had a free ride to the finals. Last season on "The Island", Derek didn't really need to do anything either, since he is a vet. People are scared of certain people on this show and that leads to not voting people in. They should just have these duels (or any other challenge) with people who are likely to win. I mean, having Brooke in there? Come on. They should get Alton in there with CT (even though he's probably banned), Landon, Brad, Derek, Evan and a couple other strong contenders.

Mark won challenges though. I'm more angry about Brad winning one *fixed* duel and rode coat tails the rest of the entire way.


And The Island was set up differently so you only had to compete in one of the head to heads and then you got your key so you were pretty much safe.

I'm interested to see how the winners vs. losers challenge goes. I would imagine a slaughter, but a lot of the would be slaughters end up getting twisted up.

of you listen closely as Landon is hugging Britt goodbye, she says "it's what they wanted".
who knows.

Go Cubs Go.  

Your opinion of me is none of my business.

The final still wasn't even that exciting except for the part where Evan carried the mountain bike up with him on the pole. That was hilarious.

Yeah the whole thing seemed suspicious. The same thing happened on the first duel. They said CT tore the flag out of the ground but he was holding the flag, the string, and the clip up and everything was still intact.
