Grodner's BB12 season

Recommended Posts

This may seem harsh and very critical, but I think we are all disappointed and feeling let down in this season of BB12. This will not necessarily make Grodner do anything (i.e., bring back an INTERESTING past house guest or give the current HG a pep talk), but who knows? She may actually read it, and I think it would behoove her to do so. The show's ratings do depend on viewer interest. It wouldn't be fair to disband the current HG as that would be kind of like taking the cookie from a kid who's earned it, but I think we all have a right to express our frustration and how we feel largely from watching the show and the feeds this year. So any time you want to express your dissatisfaction or pent up frustration, please do. I know some have even gone as far as to cancel the live feeds because THEY DON'T FEEL THEY'RE MISSING ANYTHING. For my part:

Dear Ms. Gronder,

I look forward to watching BB all year. I enjoyed the last few seasons very much and want to continue to enjoy watching BB. What were you thinking when you casted some of these people this season, though? You have someone who lays in bed all day, and everyone else is talking about politics, the weather, or their lives. These people claim to be BB experts, but it is like they are pretending to just have an ounce of drama on the live shows. There is no drama behind the scenes, and I for one, and glad I did not purchase the live feeds because that would have been a waste of my money. I just want some drama! Please! That's why we watch this show. I didn't watch it to see the HG all sing Kum-Ba-Yah around the campfire.

Signed,

Concerned.

They've probably learned this is the best way to win. Don't cause drama and don't start fights. Which does make a lot of sense.

The ONLY problem with this is Grodner can't force the houseguest to play BB a certain way. She can't go in and yell at them and say your playing BB wrong. They also can't force them not to get along. And many times we even complain when their NOT getting along. It actually is kinda nice to see a cast for once for the most part getting along with each other.

And could they really know how someone is going to be once they get into the BB house? That person might say they are going to cause drama etc BUT once they get in they find that they aren't going to win $500K IF they are drama filled. It must be really hard to cast for BB. I know I wouldn't want to do it. Also since it's now in it's 12th season many of them have learned what not to do and what to do from watching other seasons. So they got that working for them but it ends up working against the people who like the drama.

I agree that this season is boring. I don't watch the feeds as much as I usually do. BUT I'm not sorry I got them cause at some times I do like watching them. (especially when they are doing an HOH endurance challenge.) Just cause I CAN watch anytime 24/7 doesn't mean I have to in order to feel I got my money's worth.

With all that being said I just don't want to lose my BB. I look forward to it every year. I just know it's going to take more than me to want to watch it. So I'm worried about the other viewers wrecking my BB by not watching it. Bottom line is I will take BB however I can get it as LONG as I can keep getting it. I will be a BB die-hard forever!

I hope this letter comes to her attention, after waiting a year for my season of BB, I am really disapointed in the choice of cast. these people are as interesting as watching paint dry, one thing I am grateful for ... they have at least for now cured my insomnia, I have been getting the best sleep as BBAD plays, I then turn on west coast feed and an go right back out! thank you for that Allison.bedtime.gifsleep.gif

No offense to anyone in America, no matter how you vote, what your political, sexual or religious preference is, but this is every single election revisited. and every single politician inside or outside the White House or the BB House revisited...the candidate of choice is going to (say they will) change the world and make it better and everyone buys into it. Does not matter if it's Jani-Doll or Evil Dick, Matt and his lies about his wife's cancer, Andrew saying he sells shoes or the current Pres of the US....they don't change anything and everyone who ever supported them (Pres of US or BB House) will do what they want to do, and it's just the game!

Also eventually they are going to HAVE to start playing the game with the numbers go down. With the strong players staying in this year it could get crazy in there eventually. We just have to wait it out while they get rid of the dispoables. I don't know how it could stay all nicey nice in their all the way through the season.

Dear Grodner,

Last year all I did was complain about and even hate on Natalie, Jessie and Chiama. I wondered why you would put arrogant, horrible, trouble-making people in there! What was I thinking? Last year was so fun!!! Please put psychos in there next year!

Thanks!

I'm beginning to believe that I expect too much from a reality show that aired in the U.S. in 2000, and is now showing its age. It is such a disappointment to wait all year and then have all that anticipation turn to something less.

What happens, for me, is that the front part of the show (BB12 in particular) just seems to drag along and I don't handle that well.

BB needs an infusion of innovative twists and turns and real rewards and real penalties.

The houseguests have way too much time to practice doing nothing. Doing nothing is not fun to watch.

Dear Alison: To expect the unexpected is fine and dandy but I do expect something.

I completely agree with this statement. This season is so boring, and I'm glad I didn't get the live feeds!

I guess I'm too accepting of what I get in these reality shows. Or maybe it just doesn't matter that much to me. I have to say, BB has only just started this season and I'm looking for some excitement to come evenually. I'm quite happy with what I'm watching so far, or, it's ok, takes up some tv time and you never know when something might happen that will wow me, like Rachel leaving.

Of course I don't have live feeds and might feel different if I did. I just enjoy reading here and interacting when I want.

Its mho and I hope there are others who are at least enjoying it to some degree like I am. The job done here by the posters sure helps a lot too.

No more backdooring. No more red unitard. No more slop. Not more stupid weeklong gimmicks just to get a 30 second gag reel on the show of adults eating baby food. Make better use of America's choice instead of letting us pick stupid food items and say "Wow, we really effect the game. High five!"

Time to grow up, Grodner. Stop being so juvenile. Your show will still never be as respected as Survivor as long as you keep up the circus antics.

I was wondering how long before this thread showed up this season. I love the psychological aspect of each season and yelling/fights etc.. is not as important.

Dear Allison

I miss Jessie, Natalie and Ronnie. Oh and Chima was a barrel of fun. Can you please bring some of these people and put them in the house to shake things up.

never mind about the Jessie part. I was going through an insane moment.

Liking the letters and honesty so far. Yeah. The whole point of this is just to express how you feel this season, and you're doing it beautifully. Don't worry about this being a message to shut down the BB show. I think some of you might have thought this was some kind of petition to do so. No way! I am a hardcore BB fan all the way, too, and don't want my BB taken away from me, thank you very much. :D

I just think she needs to know constructively how we feel. I, for one, remember seeing the forum and feeds lit up like a Christmas tree last year (although I didn't visit much), and now it's depressing when half of us are like, "Gee really? That's it?" And the forum is not being visited nearly as much.

Sometimes when I've had a bad day at school, I want to just come home and kick the wall or hit something. That's the way I kinda feel this season when the wrong people keep getting evicted and it's so boring no one hardly wants to talk about it. You know what I mean?

Anyway when you get that same feeling overwhelming or creeping up on you, here's the punching bag. :frusty:;) And who knows? Maybe Grodner will read what we have to say...

Hey Allison,

BBAD is on Showtime. That's the channel that shows soft porn all night long, and has a show about lesbian's sex lives. It might be in your best interest to make the HGs a little more lively while the show is on. Watching Kathy lay there and tell the same story she's told a hundred times isn't exciting. How about you do some live BBAD comps for us watching? At least give them stuff to do at night. Three hours a night, seven days a week, and nothing exciting ever happens. Work on that would you?

Well, those fans who watch only the tv show have no clue because it is indicative of nothing and never has been except for season one and IMO, some BB seasons are far more entertaining than others. BB12 is S L O W. Hopefully, it will get better but right now it is S L O W and the saboteur twist was a dud. Totally.

Yeah. I think they need to add another Saboteur or coup d'etat, or whatever. Something where the HG are looking at each other suspiciously again.

How about also instead of slop - military endurance boot camp for the week with trained sergeants. Well, maybe fitness instructors. Some of these people would probably cry if a sergeant got up in their face. Still, Enzo couldn't outrun that!

I can not say. Hard to say. I feel the show need more excitement. Yes.

She'd be wise to read it. Sites like this and Jokers are the only ones I've heard houseguests mentioned as ones HGs either read themselves regularly as fans, or used for recon purposes if they never saw the show and wanted to see what it was like before going in the house. Like it or not, the "message board nerds" (as Matt calls them) are the ones that do the voting and watching.

It's a crap shoot every year when AG and company select the lab rats for the new season. I'm sure AG is aware that her picks this year are less than stellar. But at this point in the game there is not much she can do shy of a cattle prod.

(hmmm, not a bad idea Steve)

As long as the ratings are good I don't think she's losing too much sleep. I'm not a big gambler but I would bet she's got something else up her sleeve, just in case the saboteur leaves early. Since all the ones evicted are going to sequester I'll bet I'm right.

Usually by now I have a favorite or two who I want to win but alas, I have none. Matt so far is my only hopeful because of his "sick wife" lie but his actions this week left me less than enthused.

I truly feel as time goes by things will start to heat up. They have to or these people are truly dumb as a rock.
