Big Brother: Over the Top Info
|
Live Feeds | Player Rankings | Alliances | Schedule

Like the rest of Big Brother fans, I have been a bit taken back by the remarks in the house this season.  Bloggers are not immune to ignorance, and it bothers us to have to write about it almost as much as it does for you to read about it.   I have blogged about the show for a few seasons now, and have never heard the type of things I’m hearing this season from far too many of the cast members.

No matter how you look at it, this cast is putting a big black mark on the Big Brother franchise.  You have people signing petitions to get Aaryn out of the house, articles appearing on the Huffington Post, and bloggers tearing apart those who have said terrible things.  Don’t get me wrong, after watching the feeds and listening to some of the words coming out of the mouths of say Aaryn and GinaMarie, I want to just enter the house and yell at them for being so damn ignorant.

The discouraging thing is, all the negative media coverage is taking away from a pretty solid season so far.  If you remove the bigotry, you actually have some interesting characters and strategy, something that has lacked in the past few seasons.  Veterans have been mixed with newbies the last two seasons, and it was almost pathetic to watch at times.  The newbies treating veterans like celebrities, making horrific move after horrific move and basically sat in the house while veterans nearly won both years (and probably should have – Dan was by far the best player in the house last season).

This season, you had a group of the ‘popular kids’ who appeared to form a very tight alliance early on in the season, and then you essentially had the misfits with a few inbetweeners.  The popular (and annoying) group had a lot of the strongest players, and feel they’re going to dominate the entire season, but they are about to be shocked during the live eviction this Wednesday by a blindside not seen very often on Big Brother.  Jeremy, Aaryn, Gina and crew are feeling very comfortable thinking Elissa is going home, yet some pizza delivery boy somehow manipulated the house to keeping the easy target (Rachel’s sister Elissa) and sending home a physical threat (Dave).

As a big fan of the show, I hope the racist comments die down, the show stops appearing in mainstream media for negative reasons, and we can look past it to enjoy what has the potential to be a very fun summer.

Anyway, just my opinion on the matter.  It was a fairly quiet day after the drama last night, so I had some time to write my little op-ed piece.  There will be a thread later on tonight covering the evening feeds.

    I miss Ian swinging in the squeaky hammock and talking with the friends in his head! There is absolutely no one in the show this season that so far has captured my attention for the right reasons.

      Me too! I miss the entire cast from last year, dare I say it, even I miss Frank. He made some tacky comments last year, but now, looking back he would totally not be ok with the crap being said this year. Shoot, he’s look like a paster in comparrison to some of these idiots.

      I definitely miss Ian or like, any of the decent people who weren’t a bunch of dicks which seems to be the theme they were going with this year. Is it the Mad Men motif that made the producers think bringing in racists, sexists and homophobes would be appropriate? Someone should remind them it isn’t *actually* the ’60s.

      • Comments (1273)

        I’m guessing that while they thought they were getting some outspoken people who wouldn’t all get along, that they had no idea about the racism that this crew shows. I mean, do we really think Julie Chen had any idea that people in the house would be making those comments? I think maybe they thought they had some old fashioned view points, but I just can’t believe they knew that it would be like this, not even close.

        Don’t you find it kind of ironic that the big viewer twist is how much the audience will have influence on the show based on what they’re seeing and then like half the household is a bunch of douchebags that no one likes? It’s almost like a set up. Like they know who’s going to be history because they’re terrible and the audience would never support them and thus the producers can predict at least the first several nominees?

        I’m probably just suspicious because I know SO much behind-the-scenes tampering goes on but just considering the twist + how outrageous these dummies are acting gets my back up a little.

      • Comments (1273)

        Good point, and that could easily be the case. I’ve heard some say that they think MVP is there for Elissa, since the figured she would be up as much as Rachel, and it would giver her an advantage.
        While you could be 100% right, and easily know more than I do, since I don’t have any insider info, but for me I think every year we have some jerks that they know the public won’t like. Either because they are abrasive, their goal is to float, are too caddy or just obnoxious. I think they try to get some we’ll love, like Jeff’s and Jordan’s, and some that we’ll have a hard time with like E.D., Rachel, and countless others. But in the past their game play has gotten us to back them up.
        This year, they are just such bad, mean, and hateful, that I just can’t imagine CBS wanting that much judgement on them. I guess it comes down to ratings. Since there has only been 2 shows on CBS, only time will tell if these people will help the ratings (since people love to watch a train wreck) or hurt (due to how sick they make us).

    I’m right there with you Stevebeans. I have been having to catch up at random times, and btw, am so glad you are still running BBJunkies, if it wasn’t for your blogs, I would never have time to catch up on the feeds.
    That being said, I just can’t believe how these people are acting. You’re right there has been some good game play, and it will be soooooo funny to watch their little egos deflate when David goes home (who is the lesser of the evils by far).
    I just hope that it is a true false, or something that a Jeremy, Aaryn or GinaMarie won’t do good at (like pretending to be nice) so they don’t have the power. No offence, but I don’t want Kaitin to get any power either, it needs to go right back to the other side of the house and some of them need to hit the road.
    I hope none of the 3 idiots (J, A and G) make it to jury, I want them all to have to go home and sit and reach and watch how their ignorant words are being reacted to.

      This has got to be the most repulsive group , who did casting?, fire them, except for a few chosen ones, this bunch of bubble headed bullies need to grow up!

    Where`s Dan???? I really miss him!

  4. Comments (316)

    I miss the kinder times. Um like Dan’s Funeral LOL

    • Comments (764)

      Dan would have eaten these guys alive.

      • Comments (1273)

        Very true, I would love to see a Dan, or a Danielle and how they would react to this group.

      • Comments (528)

        I think even Evel Dick would be offended by these guys!

      • Comments (1273)

        For sure, plus I think it would be way too fun to watch E.D. or Dan jedi mind trick this group. Someone said Jeremy was claiming to be like E.D., but he thinks that means just being a jerk. E.D. was for sure a jerk, but he wasn’t racists, didn’t make these kinds of comments.
        He taunted and got in the heads of the entire house.
        Jeremy is just a punk that couldn’t handle E.D.

      • Comments (764)

        Evel Dick would have put them all in their place after the first day… and hopefully berated them over their excessive use of the word ‘like’ and ‘f*ck’. Never seen a bunch of potty mouths like these guys before.

      • Comments (764)

        Danielle! That’s her name. I knew after last season that few people would remember her name, but would remember the person she was. I have a feeling she would have latched onto someone and followed their lead, just like she did last year.

      • Comments (1273)

        I was actually talking about Danielle Danato, or Dani. Not Danielle Murphy

    I’ll I have to say is that after watching some of the big brother after dark, I have really come to tire quickly of Amanda. She thinks she is queen shit, never leaves the damn HoH room (you’re NOT HoH!) and most of all, that girls mouth does not stop moving!! I really hope the house guests tire of her as quickly as I have.

    I feel better now! 😉

    One minor correction to point out: Jeremy is in on the plan to evict David.

    • Comments (316)

      Ninethirteen, are you sure about that??

      • Comments (1273)

        I know he’s part of the Moving Co., but I don’t think he’s been let in on that one. I could be wrong, for sure. But I think it’s the rest of the house. I just wish they had put up Jeremy instead, I’d like him out, Aaryn then GM

    I agree with all the comments and stevebeans. Still, Jerkemy, Aaryn, Gina, spencer, kaitlyn and Amanda need to go or something. I’m sick of her. I do believe that just mcC and nick are a true alliance and the mc just a cover.

  8. Comments (231)

    By the way, where is the sign up sheet for Aaryn?

  9. Comments (3)

    Are Aryan Gina Marie stupid? Have they completely forgotten that EVERYTHING they say and do is being recorded and broadcast for everyone to see? I cannot wait to watch them attempt to do damage control and talk themselves out of this once they leave. Which I hope is soon.

    • Comments (1273)

      I think that the are obviously stupid, but Jerk and Spencer needs to be thrown in on that one. But I don’t think that’s why they are saying it, I think they just don’t care. Maybe they associate with the kind of people who also think like they do (which is indicated by this group being so tight in the house) so they don’t see anything wrong with it. Don ‘t get me wrong, either way they are horrible people, I just don’t think they care.
      Honestly, it would be impossible to count the number of times I’ve heard dingbat Airhead aka Aaryn, say “I don’t care”.

    There was just a lovely convo between spencer and jeremy on the hammock around 2:16am about how hopefully gina marie will beat up or stab elissa, get evicted and elissa goes to the hospital, and in turn as also off the show. a 2fer, they were saying. these guys are such low lifes.

    I think we all agree there are some idiots this season. Does anyone think these are the first bigots in the house or more likely these are the first to be stupid enough to be on camera saying such things.

    Big Jeff slipped when he was in the house but everyone loves him.

    I am going to enjoy these idiots knowing they will pay for being stupid once they leave he house.

    • Comments (1273)

      what did jeff say that could be compared to anything being said this year?

      • Comments (191)

        Christina
        During the 13th season, Schroeder, who had returned to compete in the series as part of a twist was again accused of making homophobic remarks, when he questioned the inclusion of a gay teacher in the fictional Harry Potter fantasy series, stating that “he’s in school with little kids! You don’t want to make that guy gay!”

      • Comments (1273)

        Well, even I, who’s a huge J&J fan, can admit that is not the best statement. And while he shouldn’t have said that, and I’m guessing regrets saying it, I don’t think it comes close to the things these people are saying this year. They are saying such venomous things, flat out attacks on race orientation and even Elissa, just for being Rachels sister.
        Maybe I am biased, since I’ve always loved Jeff, but I just dont’ think that is anywhere near the level of what’s going on this year. I think it was a tacky remark, that was more of a narrow minded statement, than a hateful statement. Of course, since I didn’t know about it, or at least I didn’t remember it, I obviously didn’t see him say it, so I can’t speak to the way he said it. I just dont’ think it’s on the same level.

    I don’t really see how this is a “solid” season at all. It’s been a week and the people who aren’t fully despicable are pretty dull or annoying. Oe has to wonder what the folks choosing the house guests are even looking for because it sure isn’t human decency or good personality.

    Welp, maybe BB Canada will just have to pick up the slack. It did pretty well in the US during its first season so kudus for not letting a bunch of damn racists and bigots in. BB US is going to just have to keep doing all-star shows since they can’t seem to find any decent people to entertain while not offending.

    • Comments (231)

      We love love BB, so all we can hope for is that the dingbats are eventually weeded out. The first two should be Jerkemy and Aaryn then Gina. In the meantime, lets concentrate on the game!
