    Thought I'd start the annual Big Brother thread (no spoilers please). Thoughts on contestants? I'm wondering where/when/if more people are coming in. Julie said in several promos that there would be more people than ever before, but right now it is the same as some of the other seasons. Can't believe Rachel's sister is in and really surprised that they recognized her that quickly.

    Among the girls, Aaryn and Helen stood out as early favorites for me.

    I was annoyed by the girl (Jessie?) who kept saying that she was prettier than all the other girls and that girls don't like her because of her looks. Gina Marie is also the type of girl personality that tends to get on my nerves (loud and obnoxious LOL).

    For the guys, I'm not sure who I like yet.

    This is my first time following BB in several years, so I wasn't even sure who Rachel was until they explained onscreen.

    You're not missing much when it comes to BBAD. Although it says it's "uncensored", that's not at all true. Anytime the HGs swear, the feeds are muted. It feels like at least half the show is muted. You can't follow conversations at all. I would hate for there to be a fight, because we wouldn't get to hear any of it. I'm extremely disappointed that they moved BBAD away from Showtime.

    Yeah, I hate that BBAD is on TVGN now. I can't stand it. I hate foul language but I hate the fact that you can't hear the conversation when they silence the bad words. It is annoying. I don't care to watch the BBAD anymore.

    That first night on BBAD, when that girl was brushing McRae's hair back to put it in a bun, why did BB tell them to stop? I thought I heard McRae say something about changing his appearance?! Well the girls put hair extension in their hair. Hmmm who knows.

    I do not like Nick because of the way he made the 'moving' team. Just appeared bossy but maybe BB wanted it too.

    Have you guys heard about all the racist and homophobic comments being made in the house by multiple HGs?

    Joker's Updates. There are discussion forums there, and most of the posters are live-feed watchers. I scan them a couple of times per day for updates.

    If you don't want spoilers, don't go to the site. A graphic at the top of every page shows the real-time HOH, nominations, MVP, and veto winner.

    So, does anyone think the house guests are much more obsessed with meeting someone? It seems like they are constantly talking about who is cute, who they want to talk to more, who they want a shomance with...more than normal, at least. I always thought it would be an interesting idea if they brought in people based on eharmony or match to see if anyone would 'click' or what not...

    It struck me that they went for a certain "look". In the past they've had an interesting mix, but not this summer.

    I do not like David.
    I am hoping he goes home.
    There are a lot of house guests that have little or no air time.

    I like David for entertainment value... everything he says just boils down to "I'm stupid".

    Another drinking game could be based on how many times he says "I don't know"...

    I'm really disappointed in this seasons cast. They all seem so fake. It's like the producers or whoever chose the participants chose based on filing certain 'roles'. Just overall disappointed...

    My station had sound troubles during the announcing of HOH game rules. There are two on a team. How is it narrowed to one?

    Several of the HGs have made some pretty disgusting remarks this season. I sort of wish that BB would air those comments so that all the viewers can know what's up.

    I agree, Caesar. I don't have the live feeds but I've read about the comments and think it's disgusting. It's changed my opinion about several of the houseguests. I also heard Aaryn's modeling company had dropped her contract as well.

    In other news, I am loving Amanda's DR sessions. She has really grown on me because of them. :lol: I think she's a hoot!

    The pair that won had to decide which member of the pair would be the HOH.

    There is some controversy because it appears as though the winning team may have cheated during the competition. Julie said that the first person had to pour the sauce into the other person's cup. The winning team, however, appears to have just swapped cups. I've seen the video (it's up on Youtube) and it's pretty clear (although not 100%). I doubt BB will do anything about it, though. They don't really seem to care much about cheating or the integrity of the show.

    Amanda is cracking me up!

    I read some of the racial slurs too and was shocked. I wish they would show them to start conversations. Some of the fights make a lot more sense when you see what else was said or hear the history.

    Amanda's comment about Elissa not being the sharpest Botox needle on the tray cracked me up! I didn't vote for MVP, but would probably vote for her if I did.

    I don't know how you'd pick somebody for MVP. What did anybody do that was remarkable?

    I'm just voting for someone who will contrast or undo what I think the HOH is going to do. Whatever causes the most drama. :)

    I wasn't like a big fan! Lol I thought it was a good idea for the "moving men" to get rid of a physical threat early in the game.

    I liked that it wasn't Elissa. Not because I like her, but more because I don't hate her. I would have preferred if it was Jesse, but I figured that wasn't happening.
