* BiasSteamroller: Seidelman ''hates'' Scott Sternberg, and shows no mercy when reviewing a show produced by him (or in the case of ''Let's Go Back'', produced '''and''' hosted by him).
** Seidelman also isn't too fond of Tim Puntillo, as evidenced in the inductions of ''Who's Still Standing?'' and ''Identity''.
** She also hates Dan Enright, especially when Enright produces a show alone.
