My thinking too. I'm just finished Episode 3 and the phrase "jumped the shark" keeps popping up in my mind.

Things got silly last season, but now it's ridiculous.

I just finished the whole new season, and it didn't get any more believable. It is just silly.

Yeah, I struggled with this. And knowing that you know you'll be left in complete uncertainty, it makes the investment kind of futile.

Question please -- Was that the personal trainer who jumped the fence toward the end?

Good question - I assumed it was a random protester, but I could have been that guy. He had a fairly forgettable face, and wasn't a big character, so I could have missed that.

I liked the show when it first came out, but this last season is absurd. Also, there is not a single character in the show with any redeeming qualities. Each episode leaves me feeling like I need a shower to get the slime off of me.

I just got access to Netflix, HOC has been recommended by lots of friends. I guess I need to watch it and see for myself.

Yeah, it was ever so slightly believable in the beginning. Honest to F, how is pushing a woman over 5 steps going to shut her up and take her out of the game enough to be effective? and Magic bottle of sleepy chinese juice?... Uh huh. Albeit, I was happy to see him go.
