At Fuskie's urging, we made my appearance in the Chat Room an event.  If you missed it (and I'm not referring to those of you that missed it by choice), here are the questions and my attempts at answers.  If you missed the chat, and would like another shot at baffling me, you can post it here.  Keep in mind I did the chat because the feeds were off, and when they're on my time is limited.

Welcome to Morty's TV Chat, your one stop shop for all TV discussion, Reality & Scripted!

[Sep 10, 2013 7:00:44 PM PDT]

morty(P)

Greetings Big Brother Fans! I'll be here until you get bored with me, so stick around for the next three minutes and see what happens. Welcome!

[Sep 10, 2013 7:01:17 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

He's already jumped the gun before I could deliver his intro, but let me say a few words first.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:02:06 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

For over a decade, America has been fascinated with Big Brother, and so has Morty. He launched his web site as a Big Brother fan and every year it grows bigger and stronger thanks to his dedication and your loyal support.

jayman228(Q)

Morty, out of the final 5, who do you think is playing the best game based on game play alone?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:02:10 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Of the five remaining HGs, I find Judd the least offensive, but still offensive, but I don't think Judd will win. Out of GinaMarie, Spencer, Andy, and McCrae, I think it might be hard for the jury not to award it to Andy. I really don't like the little bugger, but he did win some competitions, and his sneaky social game worked well for him. No one really hates him (except the fans).

[Sep 10, 2013 7:02:34 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

Now we've never done this before, so I am crossing my fingers it will all go well. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Morty to his Chat!

[Sep 10, 2013 7:04:40 PM PDT]

BellaMaggs(Q)

Hi Morty! I have loved your site from the start and appreciate the work you and your bloggers do. I also appreciate the note you wrote yesterday and totally agree.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:04:40 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Thank you, I'm not really a big fan of Elissa, or anyone :-), but what's being said is beyond rude

[Sep 10, 2013 7:05:54 PM PDT]

Dade(Q)

Morty: do you think BB will make it to Season 20?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:05:54 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I think it very well might. I think they feel they can just throw it on the air and we will watch, the ratings are very good this year

[Sep 10, 2013 7:06:21 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

Morty, what do you think of those who are actively trying to get HG like Andy to lose their jobs as Aaryn, Gina Marie have, and as Spencer may? Is there a limit as to how far fans can or should go in expressing their support or disgust?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:06:38 PM PDT]

duchess(Q)

Who does Morty want to go to final 2 and win?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:06:38 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I would GinaMarie to win, and then told that the big twist this season is that the money will be donated in her name to the United Negro College Fund.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:08:45 PM PDT]

aubreigh1(Q)

In previous years we saw the Jury house, will be able to see parts of the Jury house?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:08:45 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Each season they seem to give us a little less of everything, a little less of the jury house, no movie competition, no guests leaving to see gymnasts or MTV Awards, you will see the jury deliberate at the JH, but I don't think you'll see much more of the day-to-day

[Sep 10, 2013 7:10:00 PM PDT]

hesaro(Q)

::coolsmile ::up hey morty hey morty gang LOVE BB

[Sep 10, 2013 7:10:00 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Yeah, it's an addiction without a 12 step program, BB is good even when it's bad and this is pretty bad

[Sep 10, 2013 7:10:34 PM PDT]

lois(Q)

I love the drama , when is the last show of the season

[Sep 10, 2013 7:10:34 PM PDT]

morty(A)

The season finale is Wednesday, September 18

[Sep 10, 2013 7:11:20 PM PDT]

SueinAZ(Q)

Do you think this is the way BB will do casting (all young group) or do you think they will go back to a little more variety in the houseguests?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:11:20 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I hope so, but Julie said there would be no change in the way BB is cast in the future

[Sep 10, 2013 7:12:29 PM PDT]

IndigoAquarius(Q)

Welcome everyone! Thanks for doing this Morty!

[Sep 10, 2013 7:12:29 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Oh, no, Thank You Indigo. For those unaware, Indigo is one of the update writers for whom I take the credit for, she is great

[Sep 10, 2013 7:15:20 PM PDT]

Goldylucks(Q)

There are lots of speculation about production and DR and the possibility that the show is rigged, fixed, HG tampering, etc. What are your thoughts?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:15:20 PM PDT]

morty(A)

The show is not rigged, as the producers would never have wanted it to end this way with the fans being angry, however, we do know from an interview with Jeff, he has said that he was coached in the DR to keep Russell and Michelle and dump Kevin and Natalie, he also says that he still would have been booted out the same week, it would not have helped him in the game

[Sep 10, 2013 7:16:16 PM PDT]

morty(P)

Someone asked who Andy is loyal to, he is loyal to Andy

[Sep 10, 2013 7:17:02 PM PDT]

hesaro(Q)

congratulations MORTYSTV you do a great job! ::up ::coolsmile

[Sep 10, 2013 7:17:02 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Thank You, there are a great bunch of people that make me look good.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:18:41 PM PDT]

foxone1(Q)

I've just been watching for a few years. I don't recall any house guests being this vile has this happened before

[Sep 10, 2013 7:18:41 PM PDT]

morty(A)

We tend to mellow out our memories of the past, but yes, this group is pretty bad. They were told by production they are the worst for cursing

[Sep 10, 2013 7:20:19 PM PDT]

SueinAZ(Q)

Morty, what do you think of the whole casting idea of Type A personalities and do you think it went as planned?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:20:19 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Was David and Jessie type A? I don't know. I think casting thought Jeremy was going to be the next hero, and I think they thought Andy would be cuddly

[Sep 10, 2013 7:21:14 PM PDT]

JulyMoon(Q)

Hey Morty. There have been some pretty offensive folks on this show. This definatly been the worst. With that said, do you think there will be any severe backlash ones the houseguests return to the real world?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:21:14 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Would it be mean if I said, "I hope so." I don't know.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:22:14 PM PDT]

AMarie(Q)

Have you done any predictions on the Win, Place and Show?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:22:14 PM PDT]

morty(A)

No. I used to be pretty good at predicting, but I have found the polls to be more reliable then my thinking.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:24:30 PM PDT]

lois(Q)

don't the players realize these are real people and they all have feelings. it makes me sad that they can be so cruel

[Sep 10, 2013 7:24:30 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I started watch BB1 because I thought it was an experiment in social behavior, I didn't know much about reality TV, BB was ground breaking. I think we can still learn from it. I think you are seeing a mob mentality reaction. Like in YouTube video of school kids bulling others

[Sep 10, 2013 7:25:02 PM PDT]

JayTee(Q)

Who left tonight... Judd or GM?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:25:02 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I don't think we have an answer on that yet.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:26:09 PM PDT]

EdwardJoseph(Q)

Do you think there's a Pandora's box today before the taping of Wednesday's episode?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:26:09 PM PDT]

morty(A)

No, I think that's just another thing they didn't bother to do this year. Do you really want these people to win anything else? :-)

[Sep 10, 2013 7:27:25 PM PDT]

KimLovesBB(Q)

I think Andy kind of deserves it this year - he's made it this far floating along ... so many have tried, so many have failed at the end. What are your thoughts on that?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:27:25 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I can't stand Andy, and yes he did great, and he did it in a pretty original way, I don't think he patterned his game after anyone

[Sep 10, 2013 7:28:01 PM PDT]

kbroland(Q)

i was thinking that they should have the bb twist this year be instead of one of the last people to win the money that it be donated to charity (of all the remarks that have been made) and they get to learn a lesson of humanity and what a wonderful way to teach our society that it is not acceptable to talk like that.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:28:01 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I said earlier, I would GinaMarie to win, and then told that the big twist this season is that the money will be donated in her name to the United Negro College Fund.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:29:04 PM PDT]

gwennylou(Q)

I found myself missing season 6 the other day. That's how bad this season is.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:29:04 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I was think that too, but season 6 had Janelle and Howie to root for, they gyped us, no Howie or Janelle this time

[Sep 10, 2013 7:30:09 PM PDT]

BellaMaggs(Q)

When hg's talk about things like if they could commit murder, do you think it is possible they forget they are live on the internet?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:30:09 PM PDT]

morty(A)

No, I think they're trying to line up a job in case they don't win the 500,000-- They're idots, what can I say

[Sep 10, 2013 7:30:46 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

We're halfway through this special Chat with Morty and you've already submitted 88 questions. We will try to get through them all, but please accept our apologies in advance if yours doesn't get answered.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:31:16 PM PDT]

dinaowe(Q)

Hey Morty. Love your site! Do you think Amanda is really 38 and not 28?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:31:16 PM PDT]

morty(A)

As I get older my memory fades, but the age given on the bio is taken from records provided to CBS, so whatever it says there is correct

[Sep 10, 2013 7:32:18 PM PDT]

Dade(Q)

Love the site, what else do you do besides BB?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:32:18 PM PDT]

morty(A)

There's a group of devoted fans that tweet for me, and it doesn't stop with Big Brother. They tweet for Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, America's Got Talent, The Amazing Race, and a few I can't even think of at the moment. I try to read them all, and I do lurk on Facebook, I like reading the comments and getting a feel for what everyone is thinking.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:32:52 PM PDT]

morty(P)

I'm tying to drum up interest in the new ABC reality show, The Quest. if you havent heard of it, it's by the guy that came up with The Amazing Race. There's more info here: http://m1h.us/quest

[Sep 10, 2013 7:33:56 PM PDT]

jayman228©

Think Julie will say something on finale to the Houseguests how they acted this season?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:34:57 PM PDT]

morty(P)

As I said regarding the fight between Amanda and GM, there was no way they could clean that up for primetime, just way too filthy

[Sep 10, 2013 7:35:57 PM PDT]

JayTee(Q)

Can you give us a brief bio about YOU? I've always wondered..... ::smoke

[Sep 10, 2013 7:35:57 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I'm old, I knew Burger King while he was still a prince. I'm so old that when I was a kid, rainbows were in black and white. As a kid, I always read the credits of the shows I watched. I had a good memory and start to recognize the names from one show to the next. Now I listen to old time radio shows, and discovered they were written by the same people that wrote for TV. I like a lot of scripted shows, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Dexter, Shameless, and lighter stuff too, the The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, oh and that Restoration show with Rick Dale. I like collecting old things.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:37:12 PM PDT]

AMarie(Q)

Have you seen every single episode, BBAD and available live feeds for every single season of BB?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:37:12 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Yes. And I've re-watched many favorite moments in the BB Archives. There's a link on the left side of the update page

[Sep 10, 2013 7:38:11 PM PDT]

dor(Q)

Why do you think they allow so many HGs needing mood altering medications on the show?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:38:11 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I don't know. I was wondering that too. Maybe the % of applicants on drugs is just really high

[Sep 10, 2013 7:39:21 PM PDT]

pammysue11260(Q)

Why is it that the person who wins veto doesn't get to replace his/her place

[Sep 10, 2013 7:39:21 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Arnold Shapiro, former producer, said he didn't want the PoV to completely negate the power of the HoH

[Sep 10, 2013 7:41:11 PM PDT]

pammysue11260(Q)

is it true Spencer lost his job or is that a rumor floating around?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:41:11 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Spencer is in a union that requires a hearing for such matters. The Union Pacific railroad has said publicly they will take the matter up with the union when he gets back

[Sep 10, 2013 7:44:08 PM PDT]

lois(Q)

Do you think Amanda is as bad as she appeared on the show?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:44:08 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Hard to say. She was presented to us as a successful realtor, maybe she is both

[Sep 10, 2013 7:45:58 PM PDT]

kbroland(Q)

if you could pick one person from this season to do the next all stars BB - who would you pick and why?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:45:58 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I'm not sure there's a star in the bunch. I think GM is the worst racist in the house, worse than Aaryn, but wouldn't it be fun to see Nick and GM together.. - :)

[Sep 10, 2013 7:46:36 PM PDT]

bbf(Q)

How would you rate your all-time favorite BB seasons - 1,2,3?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:46:36 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I don't know, one of my favorite seasons was BB3 with Marcellas and Amy. Maybe my favorite was BB1. I liked Eddie and the guys. You know Eddie was considered a little rough around the edges, little did we know just how rough future casts would be, but Eddie wasn't a fan favorite until very late. The house had a pet dog, a pug, and while Julie was talking to the HGs, live, the dog jumped it to pool, and pugs can't swim. Eddie, who had lost a leg to cancer, threw down his crutches, jumped in the pool and saved the dog, on live TV. That year the viewers voted for the winner, and Eddie won.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:46:58 PM PDT]

TammyCrawford(Q)

Who will you vote for America's Player?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:46:58 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Elissa

[Sep 10, 2013 7:47:43 PM PDT]

morty(P)

I'm hoping we have more American's watch BB Canada this year. Even though it wasn't broadcast on TV there was a link to watch online, and the was a viewer that allowed you to watch their free feeds in the US.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:48:04 PM PDT]

morty(P)

For those of you that didn't watch BB Canada, BB woke the HGs up, and they were not allowed to go back to sleep. Each day they'd get a task that if completed would earn them a reward. If they screwed by now wearing their mic, or sleeping during the day, they get their booze taken away.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:48:54 PM PDT]

foxone1(Q)

I saw an audition tape of Amanda's she seemed fairly cool

[Sep 10, 2013 7:48:54 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I think I saw that too, and never predicted she'd fall for a hairy pizza boy

[Sep 10, 2013 7:49:02 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

We will have to see with BBUSA being opened up to Canada this summer, if there will be a reciprocal agreement next winter.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:49:21 PM PDT]

mailkate1(Q)

What's your prediction on who will win the $500,000?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:49:21 PM PDT]

morty(A)

As I said, I think Andy will win

[Sep 10, 2013 7:49:47 PM PDT]

morty(P)

I really don't like the little bugger, but he did win some competitions, and his sneaky social game worked well for him. No one really hates him (except the fans).

[Sep 10, 2013 7:51:09 PM PDT]

AmandaPope(Q)

I think Elissa got such a bad deal this season. Why do you think that the other houseguests hated her so much?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:51:09 PM PDT]

morty(A)

She's different. If you can't hate someone for being different, then the world would be really peaceful

[Sep 10, 2013 7:52:50 PM PDT]

foxone1(Q)

I love BB Canada and I think it starts right after USA BB ends

[Sep 10, 2013 7:52:50 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I believe BBCA will start a little earlier next year, around the first week of February, but they have not made anything official

[Sep 10, 2013 7:54:51 PM PDT]

AmandaPope(Q)

As much as I disliked Amanda wanted to see her gone. I am a big fan of the game, and I love it when a person seems like they are on their way out the door. I was really hoping that the plan to keep her would have worked, because that would have made the house just flip out. Were you secretly hoping that the plan would work and why?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:54:51 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I see where you're coming from and agree, expect that would have meant she never would have gotten out of bed. Now at least McCrae is doing a bit of gaming without her

[Sep 10, 2013 7:55:33 PM PDT]

taxladyfran(Q)

Do you think we will get the feeds back before the show tomorrow?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:55:33 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I don't think so, but expect the unexpected

[Sep 10, 2013 7:56:36 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

We're going to try to keep Morty's TV on Twitter and Facebook interesting while on Trivia.

[Sep 10, 2013 7:56:41 PM PDT]

JodiEspinosa(Q)

any news on who might have been evicted tonight?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:56:41 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Nope, they have me completely stumped

[Sep 10, 2013 8:00:23 PM PDT]

SueinAZ(Q)

Morty, what are your thoughts on BB needing to change up competitions to not make it so predictable for future casts?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:00:23 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I think the producers of BBUSA have gotten lazy and complacent. The sets were better decorated this season, but who cares what the competitions look like. The BB Canada producers had much less space and money, and did great comps. I would like to see it where they won't know if there's a veto, can't predict that OTEV is the next comp, in short, YES

[Sep 10, 2013 8:01:31 PM PDT]

LindaHendrickson(Q)

Why isn't there a consequence, like a fine, for the houseguests who continue to sing or talk about production over and over again? They know the rules.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:01:31 PM PDT]

morty(A)

You mean like in BB Canada. In BB Australia, that took money away from the prize (I think it was BBAU)

[Sep 10, 2013 8:02:48 PM PDT]

AMarie(Q)

As a first season BB virgin... Can you recommend your all time favorite Season and HG's to make sure I get a good idea of what this show is supposed to look like?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:02:48 PM PDT]

morty(A)

In this format, BB3 was very good, nice range of people. For the original format, BB1 was a great season IMHO

[Sep 10, 2013 8:03:50 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

BB1 was also on 6 nights a week with free live feeds on AOL and followed the original Netherlands format.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:04:37 PM PDT]

Fuskie(Q)

Morty, what do you think of those who are actively trying to get HG like Andy to lose their jobs as Aaryn, Gina Marie have, and as Spencer may? Is there a limit as to how far fans can or should go in expressing their support or disgust?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:04:37 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I don't think the fans should have any input into the players lives outside the house at all. We can all wish, but I don't think it's anyone's place to go beyond that.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:06:37 PM PDT]

morty(P)

People get very passionate over BB, they have threaten our board moderators and sent nasty messages to the FaceBook team, but come on, this is just a TV show. I think karma will take care of the HGs

[Sep 10, 2013 8:09:23 PM PDT]

DRG(Q)

Hey Morty, Turns out the answer to my riddle, What is the difference between a crude, loud mouthed skank and a sanctimonious, hypocritical narcissist? was only thirty minutes and not a week after all. As bad as these hamsters are, the fans once again have carried things much further. Now I know why PT Barnum said that no one ever went broke underestimating the American public. Do you think there is any chance that this will be Grodner's last season?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:09:23 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Interesting you bring that up, and funny too, CBS has hired a new Vice President of Reality TV to oversee the thing. It would be tough to justify firing someone that brought the ratings up, and that's what it's all about

[Sep 10, 2013 8:11:23 PM PDT]

foxone1(Q)

Is there going to be a wrap party, I am confused by that

[Sep 10, 2013 8:11:23 PM PDT]

morty(A)

They stopped doing wrap parties on the backlot when Arnold Shapiro left, several seasons ago. There has always been two other wrap parties, on in LA and one run for profit in Vegas

[Sep 10, 2013 8:12:35 PM PDT]

krissttea(Q)

In the CBS chats they are saying it is leaked that Andy won POV, have you heard about this?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:12:35 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I've been in this chat, and haven't been able to check the feeds or anything else, you might know more than me

[Sep 10, 2013 8:13:29 PM PDT]

NOWONDER777(Q)

This season has stood out in many ways. What so far was your favorite OMG moment?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:13:29 PM PDT]

morty(A)

My favorite was a low point, the Amanda and GM fight. Watching Judd try not to laugh was priceless

[Sep 10, 2013 8:14:21 PM PDT]

mailkate1(Q)

So many people post on Facebook how disappointed they are this year. Were you disappointed with the cast?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:14:21 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Oh gosh yes. We wait all year for this, and then it goes bad.. not fun

[Sep 10, 2013 8:16:07 PM PDT]

taxladyfran(Q)

Morty, thank you for all you do with BB. I am a faithful reader. This is the first year that the HG are so raunchy. It seems that this generation can't talk unless it contains the F-word. I would be very upset if Spencer wins because all he thinks about is sex and loves to talk about who, how and when he wants it. As far as mood altering drugs, I think this generation has had experience with these at some point in their lives. Sad...

[Sep 10, 2013 8:16:07 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Glad you like what we do. Remember Lane was pretty raunchy too.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:18:07 PM PDT]

SueinAZ(Q)

Do you think Elissa was just simply not made to be on BB? Not the right personality to tolerate anything but got on because of her sister?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:18:07 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I think she was cast very early. Ian hinted at it months before the season began. I just hope that if they offer her all-Stars she turns it down. IMHO, it wouldn't do her or her family any good.

Can we watch BB Canada in the US and how?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:20:28 PM PDT]

morty(A)

BBCA is expected to start in February. Last year you could only see it on line through unofficial streams. Based on it's success, and the fact that CBS now own the TVGuide channel, I'm hoping they take the opportunity to pick it up, but don't count on it

IndyMom78(Q)

I think if Aaryn could bounce back from the fall out she's gotten, do you think she would be good as a returning favorite at some point in the future? I prefer an all new cast with no previous ties to other houseguests. If they did that do you think the MVP might be a good twist to have again?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:23:19 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I think Aaryn could recover. By the time she was evicted I was starting to warm up to her. You know she took a black guy to the prom, maybe she hated Candice for being Candice and not for being black. And Helen said the rice remark didn't bother her because she loves rice, so who knows

[Sep 10, 2013 8:24:02 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

I think Helen was just being diplomatic, ever the politico.

Some HG mentioned certain activities could get them a penalty nomination, what is that?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:26:09 PM PDT]

morty(A)

What's penalty nom, or what activities. If you're not nominated you can get put on the block for breaking rules like eating when you're a Have-Not. Judd has said he can't talk about the jury house or he'll get a penalty nom. BB can also cast a penalty vote against you. Neither has ever happened

[Sep 10, 2013 8:28:27 PM PDT]

ttree(Q)

Can you tell us if the dollar amount the house guests are receiving this year is higher than in previous years and what the breakdown of it is?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:28:27 PM PDT]

morty(A)

You mean the stipend? It was $750 a week, and from listening, it sounds like it did go higher this year, but get this: If you win, they deduct the stipend from the prize money.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:29:52 PM PDT]

morty(P)

BTW: Fuskie tells me Jenn had a penalty vote against her when she was evicted, that was for eating I think, or tearing up dick's cigarettes, or both, not sure, I'm old and forgetful.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:31:02 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

OK, it's 11:30pm and Morty has been at this for an hour and a half. We're going to cut off questions at this point.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:31:20 PM PDT]

mailkate1(Q)

How does the schedule go from here? What is live and what isn't? Will there be any more comps to watch on the feeds. I agree with you on fans should not get involved in these people's business outside the show. We wouldn't like it if someone did that to us. Thanks for all you do!

[Sep 10, 2013 8:31:20 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Tomorrow's show is an eviction/HoH, and is taped, Thursday is Live, and then the finale next Wednesday is live. Sunday is tape as usual

stevea11(Q)

How do you define "bad". If the rating were good for CBS, aren't they good for you?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:32:22 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Traffic on the update page was it's highest ever, but I can't say the cast was responsible.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:34:29 PM PDT]

Cuyaddaber(Q)

Morty, I think Elissa was underestimated as a player. Actually I agree that is can be socially awkward, and she has a sarcastic dry humor, which most of the HGs misunderstood. But in my opinion, It doesn't prove that Elissa won't grow from this, and couldn't possibly be a different player, should she decide to give it another go. Morty, wouldn't you agree that even with the most confident people, our behaviors change based on how others treat us?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:34:29 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Deep. Yes, but if you don't need the money, why do it again? I think when she hears what's been said she'll be disgusted and just want to be over it.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:35:54 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

I think Elissa looked up to her sister and wanted to experience what she had experienced. She got a different experience than she was expecting, but in many ways, she got the same experience.

taxladyfran(Q)

what happened to Reality Nation? They had a great wrap party last year.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:36:06 PM PDT]

morty(A)

That site was operated by real networks the former feed provider. I have no idea what they're doing now.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:37:29 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

Realitynation.com is still online and part of SuperPass. Just because BB left Real Networks, the Superpass subscriptoin and benefits are still there.

MortysMinion(Q)

Whats your opinion on an all Survivor cast on BB and vice versa?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:39:52 PM PDT]

morty(A)

We know Hayden did very well, I won't say how well, don't want to spoil it for those that don't want to know. I think the cross promotion helps the ratings. Remember that Amazing Race was canceled after something like the second or third season, it won an Emmy after it was cancelled and brought back

[Sep 10, 2013 8:40:37 PM PDT]

They do that so they are not paying them as employees. The stipend is an advance on their winnings so they can stay in the house for so long and still pay bills.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:41:12 PM PDT]

angiedawson12(Q)

if they win any money like 10,000 like Spencer is that extra or they take that out to??

[Sep 10, 2013 8:41:12 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I don't know.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:42:00 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

No, prize money won during a comp is on top of stipend or winning the game (or coming in 2nd)

[Sep 10, 2013 8:42:19 PM PDT]

Cuyaddaber(Q)

Morty did you watch Danielle Murphree's co-hosting with Rob has a podcast, and what did you think of her advice to Aaryn which was to own up to her mistakes, when she herself didn't own her own from bb14?

[Sep 10, 2013 8:42:19 PM PDT]

morty(A)

Maybe she lived and learned

[Sep 10, 2013 8:45:41 PM PDT]

morty(P)

OK, everyone, this has been a blast but I'm slowing down and having trouble typing. So I'm going to leave, but you can all stay and talk amongst yourselves, meet a new friend. I'm going to ask my wonderful updaters to update me if I've missed any action on the feeds.

[Sep 10, 2013 8:47:15 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

A HUGE Thank you to Morty for taking the time to do this chat. For those whose questions didn't get asked, I'm sorry. I hope you've enjoyed the chat and will stick around to explore the Morty's TV Fan Forums & Chat!

[Sep 10, 2013 8:47:41 PM PDT]

morty(P)

Thank you all for logging in. And thanks for all the compliments. Really appreciated, and they need to be shared with everyone that helps me by writing all the updates a running the schedules, and all that stuff you don't see. THANK YOU!

Morty how can your viewers help pay for your site

[Sep 10, 2013 8:49:04 PM PDT]

Fuskie(A)

You can go to http://www.mortystv.com/donate.shtml. But remember, any donation is a thank you for services rendered and not a promise for anything in the future (though we aren't planning on going anywhere).

[Sep 10, 2013 8:49:43 PM PDT]

Fuskie(P)

Thanks again, Morty! We will now return to Free Chat. Brace yourselves!

One good thing about the Live Feeds being off tonite....

I had a chance to read the transcript from the Chat with Morty last nite.

 

Great questions from the posters... and straight-forward answers and comments from Morty.

 

Confirms my opinion that this is the best site for BB. :2thumbsup:

if you could pick one person from this season to do the next all stars BB - who would you pick and why?

[Sep 10, 2013 7:45:58 PM PDT]

morty(A)

I'm not sure there's a star in the bunch. I think GM is the worst racist in the house, worse than Aaryn, but wouldn't it be fun to see Nick and GM together.. - :)

 

This one stood out to me and I think after GM gets that restraining order against her then you can forget about that team. :D

Who knows, they may end up on Amazing Race together.
