    Yabbut, they probably don't want to spend that much money on this summertime filler show (to make it two hours). Hour and a half programming is always difficult, but ignoring that, it seems like a good length.

    I agree that their teamwork and interaction is the more important part, and more interesting. Although the dynamics of dumping and chosing someone else is kind of interesting.

    I sorta felt sorry for Miles being split from Heather (it was a no choice pick, since the male winner chose Heather), but otoh, Miles dumped his first week partner without a backwards glance. And I THINK, ironically, the girl he dumped is Erica -- with whom he is now paired. That might be an interesting dynamic. But I guess Erica calculated the odds when she held out from Peter, and now she's back with Miles. Rather awkward -- she likes him, he likes her but not as much as he likes Heather -- and may cause a meltdown.

    I actually kind of like this show. I agree that it feels crammed and hard to keep players straight. As it goes on, it will be hard to remember who was paired with who, when. Its only the 2nd episode and I cant remember who was paired with each other first. Id like to see Heather/Miles getting back to couples. the only other ones that seem to even remotely have interest in each other are last weeks #1 (cant even remember their name). I'll continue to watch.

    We're watching it, although last night got robbed by baseball game running over. They joined in progress 20 minutes into the program.. I am surprised my husband is liking it lol.. Normally he doesn't care.

    I could only remember a few pairs from the first epi, but I found this on wiki. It's a chart keeping track of things. I'm not sure if I can post link, but I did a search for Love In The Wild and found the wiki page. There seem to be some errors already with the chart. The 2 listed as eliminated is wrong, and two of pairs for week2 are wrong.

    Re: Love In The Wild

    The #1 couple (who stayed together this week) are Mike and Samantha, I believe. I guess she has a good picker. They could be split up, theoretically, but I bet no one even tries, unless it somehow becomes a strategic thing.

    I did not care for Peter, but felt a little sorry for him having to leave. Vanessa .... yay, glad she's gone!

    Peter shot himself in the foot. He gave his word to Vanessa and then broke it. Had he stuck to his work, both would have been safe. I was glad to see both of them gone.

    If he had honored the agreement, he would still be there, granted. However, to what purpose? Are they there to stay as long as possible, so you make deals with someone you're not even interested in? Or are they there trying to make a romantic connection? Peter tried to make the romantic connection and failed, but at least he tried, and that is why I feel a tiny bit sorry for him. (Only a tiny bit, because I didn't find him interesting or attractive). What was Vanessa trying to do? She knew that Steele was moving on and would probably get an invitation from someone way ahead of their back of the pack position (in doing the choosing). What do you think she would have done if she had gotten an invitation from someone she considered more attractive than Peter? Stuck to the bargain? I seriously doubt that.

    But all that said, I won't miss either one.

    I don't know why Steele is considered a prize. He's only (IMO) superficially good looking, and that in a Neanderthal sort of way (fine, if you're into that type, but I am not), he's not too bright, and I saw no evidence of his being especially witty or funny. Meh.

    I still want to smack Ben. I can't imagine why Brandee is sticking with him and not trying to find a better connection. Does she really see a relationship with this guy? Ugh.

    Her profession is "mental health specialist". Maybe she's intrigued by him & wants to observe him more for analysis? That's the only thing I can think of, lol.

    Ben is lucky Brandie chose him again because I thought he was borderline abusive in how it was all her fault they couldn't find the first tether.

    Yes, Jason talks too much. I don't think he gets that there is a time and place to talk and that is not in the middle of a competition.

    Kym and Adam, it was pretty obvious during lunch that they were not a good match for the long haul. Didn't Adam get that?

    Peter, Peter, Peter. I am in a new office building and we have lots and lots of glass, glass balconies, a huge atrium, glass elevators. I didn't realize how many of my co-workers do not like heights. You have to respect that and not make fun of them like Peter did with his partner. Fear of falling to your death because your partner is jumping up and down on a bridge hundreds of feet up in the air and you are tethered to him will have consequences.
