I know, and I value yours. It just bothers me when it is competitions, or facts that are messed up. I just expect shows like this (especially after so many years) to be highly polished when it comes to things like hosting.

Well, if the CBS nightly news doesn't work out for Katie Couric, she always has a place on BB she could fill! animated_rotfl.gif

In reality, Julie has grown on me. At first she rarely seemed to know what was going on in the show and acted like a reporter who hadn't done her research. Now I think she at least watches the televised shows, and she is more into it. Nevertheless, she messes up way too much for someone in a professional capacity such as hers. For all the Julie Chens out there, there are 20 more who can do a better job in speaking and in dressing themselves. Still, she is the one remaining constant in BB, and I really think this show is very much hers after 8 years of it.

Has everyone seen Julie Chen's plastic surgery before and after? It is hilarious!

Oh, and why has no one posted that link yet? I need my yearly reminder of what Dr. 90210 can do for us average looking folk!!

Ummm, BB is the only show that give it's fans the kind of access that we get. Live feeds, ShoToo this season...... If you think Jeff Probst does everything perfect in one take? Think again. He has admitted to making the "Survivors" suffer longer than they had to at Tribal Councils and comps because he biffed it. Guess what? It was edited out of the show when it aired.

Read interviews with the host of The Bachelor...he admits all the time that he screws up and it takes lonegr to film the show.

Caroline Rhea from "Biggest Loser", same thing.

BUT, those shows get to edit stuff out. They don't do anyting live except award the money. BB lets you watch the whole way through.....KNOWING that we are watching and bitching and threatening lawsuits over every move they make.

And Julie Chen STILL is willing to get on there every Thurs and be the friendly face for us, the viewer, and for the victed HG. And she does it getting beat up and hated every week for standing the wrong way, wearing the wrong clothes, or making a mistake with a button or a word. And no, it really does not affect who wins each week. When it has without a DOUBT affected something, BB has always redone it.

Well said Dep. I'm staying with my mom for 2 weeks now and
she noticed on last Thursday's show how Julie did mess up a few
times...she thought it was funny when I told her it was a "live"
show taped earlier.

I hear you Temple....it is frustrating when she messes up on the
HOH comps. but I still love her.

I thought they did rehearsals prior to going live to help get it right? I don't argue the point that it isn't easy to have to do things live on the spot, but lots of hosts and other TV people manage OK. I just figured she'd be a little better at it by now than she is, because she's had many seasons to get it down.

Mey be by the end of the Season we will agree, but I doubt it. No hard feelings, but we see things differentlY

I have always been a big fan of Julie. I thinik she strikes an excellent balance between someone you would see in a serious jounalistic capacity, and someone you would expect to see more on entertainment tonight. She also lends an air of credibility to the show.

HOWEVER, I think her botch in the HOH competition this year, when Eric buzzed in and she said the answer instead of Eric's name, possibly altering the entire course of the show, puts her on "probation". Everyone is entitled to screw up every now and then, but that was such an obvious answer that Eric would have almost certainly gotten it right. In my mind, one more screw up like that and she should be out.

I always liked Julie, but I think she's ready to be done with BB and focus on the morning show. After this many seasons, I would hope that Big Brother would pass the torch to a former HG. Not someone like Marcellas, but someone who appeared to really enjoy the experience, like George.

I have to admit, I was kind of surprised that after Allison took over, Julie was still the host. Julie is old guard, I'm ready for something new.

I'd think Dick would be a great host. Above all else, he really does enjoy the game of Big Brother. My only problem would be his speaking/ presenting voice. He would be great for comentary, but I'm not sure about comp hosting. Julie may have flubbed a few answers, but her voice was pretty clear.

Maybe Jack and Dick could host together.

Speaking of Julie Chen before and afters, go to youtube and search for clips of BB1. Talk about time warp.

Julie never bugged me. She's just there. Yeah, she messes up every once in awhile. But, who are we to judge? I've worked in live TV and I know first hand its easy to screw up. Maybe that's why I cut her some slack.

Would Love to see someone whos active and involved like I see with the Host in BBAU.. Perhaps they could get Gretchen Massey to go from House Talks to Host.. I bet she could do the job.. I have always been impressed with her skills on the Web casts.. And thats a Live show also isn't it?

and BB has its re-edits of lots of things.. When it comes to some of the competitions I think its understandable.. Especially when they have someone who is illertatre trying to read the witty banter on the instruction sheet..

Thats one Huge reason why I am a big advocate of "Big Brother" becoming a character on the show.. where he can give them the rules himself Instead of the pretty girls being like Ohh Pick me to read the rules..
