Abstract: LHC searches have ruled out "standard" gluinos up to well above a TeV and stops up to about 700 GeV, mostly by relying on missing momentum signatures. These results are in considerable tension with fully natural theories of electroweak symmetry breaking within SUSY. However, they depend on assumptions about how gluinos and stops decay. In this talk I will look at some alternatives, including Stealth Supersymmetry and R-parity violation, explaining the underlying theoretical ideas, the current experimental status, and the future prospects for discovery. I will suggest some simplified models to search for to help constrain these "hidden" SUSY scenarios.
