"The reason Kara was targeted was because they were a player down"
Doesn't change my objection: They were a player down because they were on a team with coaches in the first place. Remove the coachs' twist and Kara isn't part of a team so she isn't targeted. Anyway, Kara was the best of the three so I wouldn't say she deserved it.
"Mystery meat": LOL!
I'm not comparing BB challenges to the Olympics, only considering that the Olympics are around the corner so we should relax on the "good competitor" comparisons.
What I would do is compare BB's challenges to Survivor's and The Amazing Race's. BB's fall miles short of both. As lame as some of the Survivor challenges are, very few are as bad as BB while TAR has some of THE best challenges on Reality TV. They are often linked to the local culture and force the contestants to think, to decipher clues or confront fears.
I'm not saying BB should remove their challenges, I'm saying they should get challenging challenges. Pretty straightforward demand, no?
PS. I'm surprised you don't watch the Amazing Race: It isn't about the social game but all about competition.
