Sara: When my girlfriend and I started dating, one of my her prerequisites for moving in with me was that I had to get cable so that we could watch Bravo. " to "That is the stupidest show." I love participating in things that aren't just universally loved or hated. Tegan: We were out on tour when I was [binge-watching reality tv], and one of my questions is, is it sad to sit and watch this TV alone? We're doing with friends, and it's my first time watching it. Tegan: I get really hung up thinking about what people watching it are feeling and experiencing. You really understand why people get so crazy in confined quarters competing for something they can't all have.

It's actually really impressive for how much they spent on it. Sara: I'm shocked that one of the twins made it as far as she did. You get one sweet item, one salty item, and a beverage.

Molly: They shot it at the North Hollywood library! At first you watch and you're like, "These people are so pathetic, I'm so much better than them." Then you are suddenly realizing, "Wait, these people are so pathetic and we're really not so different after all." Sara: No, we're not.
