  1. In case you haven't seen the HGs yet on CBS, here's a link to ET with an overview of them: http://m.etonline.com/tv/166244_big_brother_17_houseguests/ So far, I'm excited by the Rafi looking guy (if you watch The League, you'll know who I'm talking about! Lol) there's also a new Hayden 2.0 from last year, long-hair surfer looking guy. I am confused if they did recruiting at casinos this year with 2 poker dealers. I also looked up 2 of the prettier girls (Liz and Meg) and immediately found their modeling/aspiring actress head shots online. Kinda disappointed that most of the HGs are wannabe actors this year, but I guess what else can you expect and I should know better after watching since Season 2. I suppose with the "transparency" theme this year it might be kind of interesting. What are your impressions? Anyone actually watch the Frankie Grande behind the scenes?
  2. Any guessss which 2 old HGs could be returning as coaches for girls vs guys theme (if rumor is true)? It'd be nice if it were Britney and Donny or 2 very likable HGs. Please BB.
  3. BB17 Houseguests: Overall First Impressions

    There's only 14 HGs with rumored to be 2 returning HGs (one male & one female) as coaches of each team by gender for a battle of the sexes theme. This is all heresay but I kinda believe it, although I don't care for it really. And yeah, a much younger group this year. I wonder if any are parents or married, or will it be another season of casual hook-ups?
  4. BB Season 15 disappointment

    This hit the nail on the head for me. One of the most well-said and well-written things I've read in a long time, atleast regarding BB. I have tuned out this season totally and decided I'd actually prefer working on my dissertation than watching this non-sense. I am disappointed in Andy who has so much intellectual potential. Disappointed in them all really. I hated, despised, disliked, could-not-stand Brenchal... but for some reason I (along with others) are drawn to Elissa because of her being treated like an under-dog, disrespected, and so forth. I have to agree 100% with you that it must be jealousy. They are on this show afterall to win 1/2 a million dollars when Elissa doesn't really need the money but went for the experience. Her uniqueness didn't give her the social cues to keep that on the down-low as other past HGs have come onto BB with money in their pockets but realize they shouldn't talk about it with the others. I'll continue to watch the shows as I always do, 14 years of my life now, might as well keep going, but I definitely hope next season they do some best casting decisions. Thanks Morty for making this post, I don't know which of your readers don't like your interjections but I surely appreciate it.
  5. BB Season 15 disappointment

    Agreed. I've decided to pick up watching Breaking Bad and Hannibal. To fill the BB void. Have a great year too... I have a feeling these HGs may unfortunately get more than their fair share of 15 minutes of fame due to the controversy.
  6. BB Season 15 disappointment

    If you check out Dr. Andy Field's statistics textbook he actually uses BB at times as sample experiments to discuss statistics. Seems like he is a fan of the UK version, but I strongly doubt this season will be anything for anyone to write about.
  7. BB Season 15 disappointment

    Let's not personally attack each other please.... I think we have some good discussion here and I appreciate everyone's comments, both those who like Elissa and those who do not. I feel like Morty, the only reason I somewhat like her was because I felt she was disrespected. But compared to any other season (besides #9 with that nastiness), I wouldn't like her at all. This season has been a wash. But I can also appreciate the social experiment of it all. My husband always wonders why the heck I still watch this show each year and I try to relate it to my job and that it helps us to understand people better. You never really know who you can trust. Year after year we watch the 10 minute intro clips before the season begins, pick our favorites, and I'm always blown away by how wrong my first impressions are. I stopped doing the fantasy thing because I was terrible at it... and my job is to work with other people yet I think most people are like this and fool us/surprise us. You have to give people benefit of the doubt... atleast at first, until they prove to be Aaryn's and Andy's and Amanda's. But you never know, they can change in the future perhaps. I don't want to get on a soapbox but some of the comments here are harsh, to each other, to the HGs remaining, & even Julie. Are we any better if we spew hateful things too? Let's try and learn from their mistakes.. This final 3 is a disappointment. I don't want any of them to win but I will watch to see the jury house, Dr. Will come back to roast them, see the original HGs talk with the jury, and of course, the most exciting part of this season and my favorite part of each eviction episode - to see Julie's hair and wardrobe choice.
  8. Visiting BB Winner?

    Forgive me if this is already posted elsewhere, I haven't kept up with the feeds/threads lately as this season is a wash. I probably won't even remember 2/3rd of these folks next year. Anyways, I prefer when they recap us on old BB stars and do all stars personally, when they can pick from the best. Julie mentioned next week a former BB winner would be entering the house/hosting a comp/something like that - any ideas or confirmations? I'm guessing maybe Rachel to torment the HGs in a Pandora's box but I have no idea. Anyone have any guesses or know anything I've missed?
  9. Exactly, I was so upset when she left. Until I realized its not because I like her but because these other people are all that's left for a winner. UGH #fail
  10. Rank your Final Five!

    Yuk, Yuk, Yuk, Yuk, & Yuk - worst season besides season 9 1. Judd 2. Andy 3. GinaMarie 4. McCrae 5. Spencer Based on gameplay and personality but it's a tough choice. Here's to hoping next year is all stars.
  11. Candice - Week 6 - Evicted (Aug. 8) Juror #1

    Forgive me if this has already been posted before but I hadn't seen this clip before and randomly found it on youtube. Candice finds her birth mom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSV4DMoYJpo
  12. Top 3 BB Players

    Just curious.... don't think there is already a thread like this (sorry if there is). 1. Candice 2. Elissa (which is odd because I really, really didn't like Rachel) 3. Helen I guess I sort of root for the underdogs (with the exception of Elissa being an underdog) to some extent like many of us tend to do. I think Candice has the best attitude in the game. But then again, I don't have feeds and can only follow so much of the daily updates. Interested in your picks.
  13. Elissa - Week 4 - POV Winner - Saved

    Just logged on and was shocked to see Elissa nominated by America. But then... thought about the math and stats (i'm a "scientist of sorts") and realized it's because of the stupid twist and game change not being reliable/accurate. For instance, if (just guestimating) 40% of us voted for Aaryn and 40% voted for Kaitlyn, and they were already put up by Judd .... that leaves 3rd place which could have barely any votes % at all. And if GM was put up as 4th vote by America, that means she was barely even nominated as well. I wonder if BB will show the exact percentages and change the 3rd vote thing next week because it is totally not accurate. If majority of us wanted Kaitlyn/Aaryn home and then the remainder was an almost split tie between the rest of the houseguests - probably 5% each or so.... then is it really America's vote? I bet you that Elissa, GM, and whoever else came next was a very close and small percentage. There is no other explanation why she could be MVP 3 weeks in a row then all of a sudden be America's vote to go home. Please please BB change this America's vote crap. You can't have *us* vote BEFORE the first 2 nominees go up. How are we to know who will come in third?? Or 4th place? Am I making any sense or just babbling. haha.
  14. BB15 Live Feed Screen Captures

    @Stitch I think it is oddandstupid.com that has those.
  15. BB15 General Discussion

    Why does BB suck me in?! I had decided not to watch this season due to my busy schedule.... but now that I checked Morty's, found out the cast, realized it airs tonight, that's it. I'm in for my 14th season. Does it annoy anyone else that they are forgetting past HGs and winners and stats? With each new season I think my brain forgets another. When I heard Daniele and Dominic got married, I thought, WHO?! Took me awhile, and I'm not that old. Anyways -- I'm super excited it'll be 3 HGs nominated each week, gets rid of the backdoor plan to some extent and the all HGs voting out the same person ordeal. Switch it up. I also like the decorations and that we have a FULL house. Rachel's sister already is annoying me with the same exact voice and expressions and hand gestures -- but who knows, we'll see.... Now I just have to find a TV to watch on.
  16. The finales always feel so rushed, unlike the shows that are all drawn out and take forever. They need to fix this, turn it into two episodes or two hours or something.
  17. America's choice was so fixed. CBS loved Frank. Morty's fan fave poll was Ian then Britney. What was Janelle talking about? Must've missed this... :/ Or is she just still bitter Danielle got her out and lied to her?
  18. By the way, thanks Kansas for the feed! Life safer. I was biting my nails wishing I could watch!!
  19. Sounds like the jury thinks Dan should win more than Ian. I have to say, one of my favorite seasons in a LONG time. And I've been watching since BB2.
  20. Yup only votes for Dan are Jenn and Dani so it seems. . . can't wait to see who Boogie and Janelle are rooting for
  21. They are bitter because he played a dirty game. But he is def an All-Star BB player, if not, the best all-time. Still rather see Ian win though.
  22. How so? Just got the feed up when Danielle found out the final 2 deal with Ian/Dan.
  23. Can you guys update me what's going on.... I didn't see a live feed posted on the homepage for the show.... and still watching Sunday's episode now anyways (and no cable). So please keep me updated! PS in case anyone cares, I loved Dan until the veto challenge with the balls. Then Ian became my favorite. Oh and UVP definitely agree, finales are always disappointing.
