  • Spikes are not meant to be bladed they are supposed to be conical. Every time I’ve seen a triangular, bladed spike it always fails. You have two sharp axe heads to cut with, you do not need to cut with the tip, you need to be able to pierce armour with it which a cone shape is better for.

  • Doug is one of the judges not a waiter, he doesn't need to address the contestants as Sir which lowers his status. Just call them by their first name.

    Colin SeetColin Seet26 ditë më parë
    • @Colin Seet ugh... Many Americans call everyone sir. As to why the contestants sometimes might address him by name, I'd put it down to familiarity. They feel they know him, having seen him on the show over the years, and feel comfortable calling him Doug. He doesn't really know them, and therefore generally goes with the default "sir".
