Depeche221 Posted July 19, 2007 Share Posted July 19, 2007 As someone who has watched BB from season 1, I have avidly watched our beloved hampsters every season, and thoroughly enjoyed every single season, even when I hated it. If BB didn't elicit such emotional responses, it never would have lasted. But, Evil Dick just said something that got me thinking about past seasons, and I think he is on to something and CBS should take note. It is something that many of us have commented on, and posted about, but, it really rang true for me this season. While talking to Amber, she was complaining about how boring it was being in the house. He responded that he was never bored, there was always something to do. It got me thinking. Considering I was not really a fan of Dick at the start, and he still bugs me at times..... If you look back on all of the seasons of BB, you will see that the real, down to earth, everyday people that have been cast, never really have a problem finding something to do. It's the poeple who are sought out and cast, the ones who are asked to participate, the ones who have agents, who are looking for fame, the ones that have contracts, have acted, etc, that seem to be the most bored. (anyone want to go over how many times Will and Boogie complained about boredom both seasons they were on?) Even Kayser, Howie, James, Janelle, the fan faves from All-Stars (Not all fans, I know) were worse about complaining the second season they were on. But go back to the seasons and look at the normal everyday people like Chicken George, Karen, (hell everyone in season one), Danielle, Amy Crews to some extent, look at every season and the people they brought in that were everyday folk, even if they were older, outta shape, voted out early, whatever, they still never complained much about being bored. They were more interested in making the most of the 3 months and PLAYING THE GAME. They didn't complain, they didn't demand, they didn;t "play" to the cameras constantly, but, they were interesting and many times fan favorites. But more and more each season, we are getting a housefull of spoiled brats with agendas (and victims of bad "twists") who bore and annoy the fans, and complain constantly about how bored they are and how hard it is to have to do nothing, lay in the sun, hot tub, swim in a pool, and basically have a free summer to be anyone they want to be....with pay. (not great pay, but pay nonetheless) Does anyone else wonder what would happen if CBS really took real folks, from more than 2 or 3 major cities, and put them in the house now that the show is popular? Have they considered the fact that if they actually invested in real people, who can entertain themselves and have imagination, they wouldn;t have to come up with lame twists that don;t pan out and actually hurt the show? I think we would have much better live feeds and ShoToo feeds and we would have less of the old and more surprises. As a side note, it is interesting to see that Mortys and other boards are much the same. The same people come back every year and you can see that certain people will rely on the same tricks and post ideas and comments to just get attention, while new folks jump out at you with fresh views and ideas and don't stick to the same M.O.. Our world of Watchers, definately collides with those of the Hampsters in this way. Just some thoughts Dep P.S. To you that post "I didn't read because it was too long", you are part of the problem. One sentence responses with a smiley or other icon over and over creates more boredom every season. Try reading and actually saying something new.
