I too think Chris's talk with the boys was way too awkward. She would have been better off just asking if they could all start off with a clean slate from that point on.
As for Adrian, his social skills suck. While he did join the group and is a member, he knows none of the dynamics so to voice an opinion is also awkward. I thought Nancy's advice was very sound too bad Adrian was too stupid to take it. But on the other hand if I was a member of the Red Team I would be cheering him on as he painted a BIG target on his back.
As far as some of the confessionals of both the Black and Red Teams I know that the assistant producers ask everyone the same questions and who ever gives the best responses is what is aired. I don't blame either the Red or Black teams for not feeling that friendly toward Team Aqua as new additions to any group always take a bit of an adjustment.
