  1. The thing(s) I liked the most: watching Derrick manipulate the hg's, Caleb's goofy ass once Amber left, Zach's antics, Team America's missions. Things I liked the least: the huge early alliance that prevented the other half of the house from making any progress, the constant cuddling & getting in each others' personal space & the fact that the women were ONCE AGAIN unable to form a kickass alliance!! BB needs to cast smarter, athletic women whose #1 priority is to WIN the freakin' game, not stare at themselves in the mirror 24/7! GAWD, I hope to NEVER see another Victoria type on the show!!! I also have to mention that Jocasta was / is a most annoying person & I was really disappointed by Donnie's sore loser, holier-than-thou attitude once he was eliminated. I wish Nicole, Zach or Caleb would have won Favorite!! All in all, I really enjoyed this season and was VERY happy Derrick won! I hope he throws a little money Cody's way - they really were a good team and I think Derrick owes him.
  2. I hope Jocasta forgives Derrick - THAT'S what Jesus would do. SSSOOOOOOOOOOOO GLAD Derrick won!!!!! I wish they would let the jury see the DR sessions before the finale. Also wish they'd have an hour show AFTER they crown the winner just to let them talk about the game.
  3. In your defense, uvp, he DID seem to have a pretty worried look on his face the entire show. I think it was the revelation about Derrick that stunned & disappointed him. Poor guy. I know, I know, he's not everyone's cup of tea & he was annoying to some people and God knows he wasn't smart enough to win, but I like him & hated to see him go. I thought Cody's DR session about Caleb leaving was pretty cold - it kinda bothered me. Makes me hope Victoria receives Divine intervention and edges him out of the final 2 with Derrick. HEY! Miracles happen! Lol You're absolutely right!
  4. I hate it that he's leaving with only $5K! I know a lot of people didn't care for him but once Amber was out of the house, I enjoyed his silly antics. I've never voted for AF but this year, I will give him 20 votes per day. I've never watched a complete episode of Survivor but it seems like it would be a good fit for him. God bless his goofy, country boy heart!
  5. Nooooo! That JUST won't do, 6Borders! If it ends up Derrick/Vic f2, AT DERRICK'S hand, I'll be soooo disappointed. I don't want him to take the easy way out! In other words, I'm willing to gamble with his half mil lol. AND, I just don't want to see her win $50K for walking around staring at herself in the mirror and being one of THE most clueless hg's to ever play BB.
  6. So do we know who Derrick nominated? I'm REALLY happy he won HoH!!! I hope Caleb wins the veto - it would probably blemish Derrick's near-perfect game but I wouldn't mind. I will be MOST happy if Derrick wins 1st & Caleb wins 2nd.
  7. I clicked on a season 9 video after watching Will & Boogie. OMG, I had forgotten about the "til Death do us Part" nightmare! Hahahaha! I laughed at Natalie that entire season because she soooo reminded me of a crazy Cheri O'teri character from SNL! My head hurts from laughing! Thanks, Wicked!
  8. I agree, minimom. They went overboard on the "tolerance" issue because of the "sins of the past" so to speak. Those guys are definitely earning their money this year. Just a little aside on the cuddling thing though. My sister was telling me last night that our niece (who is a freshman in college) and the kids she hangs out with (lots of theatre/music majors) are like the BB house. They all hang all over each other, cuddle on the couch while watching movies, etc., in a strictly platonic way. She said she couldn't get over how similar it was to BB EXCEPT, the hetero-sexual guys don't cuddle other guys. Lol. I'm so old! I just don't get it. I'm a very affectionate person but my personal space is and always has been reserved for my guy, not my girlfriends or guy friends. New trend or is someone gonna tell me my niece and her friends are gay? Lol
  9. True, times have changed in the BB house. I hate the fame-seeking thing but really, I like the fact that they give them things to do (I wish they would give them MORE things to occupy their time) & feed them well, etc. Personally, I would go bat-chit crazy being locked up in there with a bunch of idiots. I don't want to watch a bunch of down-trodden, depressed souls! I wish they would stop recruiting people whose main objective is to launch their "celebrity" status, up the prize to 1 mil for first & $250K for second so they would be more inclined to actually PLAY the game instead of obsessing about how much freakin' camera time they're getting or Crushing on someone. I also think they should throw in someone who isn't competing for the prize and is just there to stir the pot so we can enjoy characters like Zach throughout the ENTIRE season. As far as the women vs men thing...I don't know if we'll EVER get a season of women who will actually have the intelligence, social skills & savvy to break up a massive guy alliance formed early on. . .which will more than likely be the strategy every year. It's just their nature to view women hg's as weaker pawns first & foremost and #1 targets if they're smarter than a box of hair! Every year I hope we'll get to enjoy the females turning the tables on the boys club...every year I'm disappointed on that front! I think it's impossible to come up with a cast that includes enough women who are focused, smart, confident, brave and wiley enough to form an impenetrable all-girl alliance capable of picking off the males one by one. The guys make it look so easy because it IS easy for them. WHY can't the females do it? Million dollar question.
  10. Devin, Donnie & Delusional Douchbag - they could have been the TRIPLE D alliance!!! Hahaha, delusional Douchbag. I like Caleb, but that's funny.
  11. As of 6:53pm on the update forum, I do believe the meltdown has officially begun. It's gonna get ugly unless Frankie can "regain his light."
  12. So, what are you saying, arrowhead? Caleb's family hasn't been sufficiently conditioned to believe it's perfectly acceptable for a gay person of the same sex to dry hump you? Lol. You DO realize they would be considered haters by the politically-correct movement if they gave him crap about it, right? Only safe to do so in private - otherwise the "thought police" will crucify you. (Wish I could throw in some emoticons here!)
  13. Lol, Gerber Daisy. Maybe I've been desensitized. I worked in the athletic field too long???!! I've seen true misogynistic up close a personal on a regular basis - he doesn't scare me.
  14. Do you think he's dangerous, Kywildcat?! If so, I think a good part of the male population should be incarcerated lol. I've worked and lived around many guys like him as well as many intelligent, well-educated men. Caleb may be lacking in grey cells but believe me, there are plenty of successful, well-educated men whose egos require a partner who thinks the sun rises and falls on them. They just know how to hide it better. Just my opinion but I think he's pretty much harmless. I don't think I would want my daughter to fall in love with him but none-the-less, no more "dangerous" than your avg guy. He just needs to take his mother's advice and learn to be humble. He's young and full of himself right now - he'll figure it out as he matures hopefully!
  15. I don't know why I can't get the quote button to work but gotcha, Slim. I just wanted to know your specific thoughts. As others have pointed out, he will/should definitely catch hell over the Amber thing...but probably not too much from friends or family. I'm guessing they are used to his "falling in (& out of) love" quickly. He probably takes crap about it frequently & is used to it. He never tried to pretend he wasn't crazy about her - he just jumped in head first. If he is willing to do that on national television, you gotta figure it's just who he is, for better or worse. I think he'll be embarrassed by how completely one-sided the amber affair was when he sees the show but it won't shake his confidence that he's beastmode cowboy & there are plenty of females out there who would love & admire his prowess. Lmao. He's adept at brushing off criticism and moving on so I doubt BB will hold any long-lasting effect in his life. He's not too complicated. As for his game play, if he loses, he'll chaulk it up to being out-smarted by physically inferior people - again, probably something he's accustomed to.
  16. Slim, Please expound! What will he catch hell from family/friends for?
  17. Mold - haha! (The "Quote" button isn't working for me!) Derrick/Caleb F2 would make me happy too!
  18. Poor Caleb . I agree with you, Stray Cat. He DOES believe his loyalty is to the guys and I think it's against his nature to backstab any one of them. They have said all along that they won't turn on each other until everyone else is gone. He's obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer. . .and regardless of his strutting around and trying to come off as "in control" and the leader, I think he's more than aware of his own deficiencies. I think the producers can easily manipulate him. He knows Derrick & Cody are close but I don't think he realizes just how close they really are. And it seems like he has gravitated toward Cody this past week and bonded with him somewhat - in that weird way guys bond by insulting each other. He and Derrick and Cody have had several conversations about back-dooring Frankie (sorry Steve), but I just don't know if he will do it if given the opportunity. He will be EXTREMELY nervous and wonder if he's doing the "right" thing. He couldn't even throw the BoB comp without being "honest & forthright" about it to Frankie. For all his naivety, quirks and obsessive behaviors, I think there is a strong sense of honor and integrity in the boy. He knows Frankie's a snake in the game but he's also impressed with Frankie's supposed celebrity status outside of the house and is hoping his "connections" will help him to be "famous" in some capacity. Even if Cody & Derrick continue to tell him that he can win in the final two against them and there's no way he can win against Frankie, he may be willing to take second place to Frankie. That way, he'll preserve his chances of cashing in on Frankie's (supposed) connections and still get 50K. Normally, I'm repulsed by people who are so hungry for fame but for some reason, I have a soft spot for Caleb. I don't think he deserves to win the game and I doubt he will ever be a household name but I admire his bravery in service to our country and think his parents have every right to be proud of their son. :pleased:
  19. Anxious to hear Derrick's diary room sessions tonight because he and Vic were whispering so low last night that I couldn't figure out exactly what was being said. . .other than he somehow has convinced her to pretend that she's mad at him and to not really campaign because she could make things worse for herself (he HAS to be feeling like a complete heel by now for manipulating her so easily the entire game). God love her, she is dumber than a box of hair! So after that conversation, Derrick is out in the backyard and again, I didn't understand exactly what he was trying to accomplish because they were all talking at the same time. Was he trying to keep them from telling her she is going home? (I used to be able to listen to more than one person at a time but now that I'm old and lacking in estrogen - champion hormone if I do say so myself - I just can't keep up with four people talking fast & all at once. Anyway, Frankie was looking at Derrick as if to say, "Bitch, please! Don't insult my intelligence." I'm thinking Frankie is shrewd enough to see through Derrick's ploys. And that worries me because at this point, if Derrick doesn't win, I don't care who wins - unless it's FRANKIE! Ugh, please not Frankie.
  20. Yes! That's why I'm wondering who he REALLY wants to be sitting next to. He seems genuinely loyal to Cody but if he is final two with Victoria, it's a slam dunk for him. I wouldn't blame him if he chose Vic over Cody but it would be a boring replay of Andy sitting next to what's her problem at the finale.
  21. You're right, Joystick. That conversation took place before the veto meeting. I really enjoy watching Derrick's game. I wonder who he REALLY wants to be sitting next to in the final two.
  22. Really enjoyed this post! I've never considered myself a "fan" of any houseguest on BB. Like others have said, I have no reason to invest my undying loyalty to some person I have never met & who will never effect my life in any way, shape or form. I'm a fan OF THE SHOW. Every year, I dread the first episode because the majority of the hg's are so over-excited & obnoxious lol. But I make myself sit through it so I can get a first impression of all of the HG's. This year, my first impression of Derek was that he would go far in the game because of his profession. My first impression of Victoria: clueless, self-absorbed, shallow and annoying. (I know that sounds unkind but I'm only human and far from perfect!) I'm not A family member or a friend but I didn't perceive Derek's behavior towards Victoria as mean or crossing any line. I think he gets annoyed by her utter stupidity concerning the game and I just can't fault him for that - especially since he's far more patient with her inability to see past the nose on her face than I would be. I guess we all have our pet peeves - one of mine is having to suffer the uninteresting, intellectually-lazy (no) gameplay of Bb hg's. Wow, maybe I got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning???
  23. I have never understood the fascination with "celebrity"!!! Soooo with ya on that! It's the curse of our generation!! I would say, "one more irrelevant / white trash/ ghetto / shallow / boring / phony reality show and I'll vomit," but I would die of dehydration in a week. Somebody stop the madness! I know, I know big brother is a reality show but at least it's a game with a decent prize and (sometimes) an entertaining study of the human psyche and not some completely useless hour of the Kardashians latest hyped-up "crisis" drivel.
