Default Duo Twist in Retrospect

Did ya like it?
I didn't. I didn't like the golden key thing either. It stopped those players from competing that really wanted to. It was boring to have so many sitting on the sidelines just cuz they're partner was gone.
Even though the duo twist came back and saved one of my faves for another week I still thought it was dumb. Didn't like the twist overall. Like everyone to play for themself.

I'm guessing the golden key thing was designed as a safety measure to make sure all of the veterans didn't leave too soon. It guaranteed that at least three veterans would be in the game for awhile.

Truer words have never been spoken!

The duo twist was shit from the start IMO if you are going to make people play in pairs at least every pair should have known eachother to begin with. It was so easy for the newbies to lay low and let their partner be evicted the first 4 weeks. You really thnk the vets would want their parter evicted?

I agree it was stupid, hated it and hated the whole "Newbie/Veteran" thing do either or and leave them separate...The golden key was BS....I think if a floater wants to float to the end...start evicting them...Make them play for right to be there...Makes for a much better game....

AG be on notice no more Jessie...MY God 4 years is enough!

I like to think of this season as "The Season That Grodner Rigged." Everything was designed to help the veterans. And no, I didn't like it.

So true, but she seems to do that every year with the ones she likes...

Ya, looking back, I'm with you guys. Hated the duo twist and the golden key thing was stupid as hell. To be honest, I'm glad this season is over. It will go down as one of the worst, in my opinion, only because of all the manipulation from productions stand point.
