    David was my least favorite guy...but now it's Jeremy.
    Least favorite girl...all so far.

    I did not like Aaryn's nominations. very predictable.

    I read somewhere that Aaryn has lost two contracts she had going because of her racist remarks. She is a piece of work.

    Amanda annoys me and she is from a town right next to mine.

    I was glad they showed some of Aaryn's rude remarks so that people without the live feeds know how she acts.

    Howard, Elissa, Nick, and Amanda are some of my faves. Not much of a fan of Aaryn, Jeremy, Kaitlin, or McCrae.

    We have a lot of the same favorites and non-favorites. I want to like McCrae, but I'm just not sure. He was an early favorite of mine, based only on the bios that I read before the first episode.

    I really dislike Spencer. I think he's terrible and repulsive. He refers to women as the c-word. Constantly.

    I want to like Helen. I feel like she's not seeing the truth when it's right in front of her.

    I think that Candice has a lot of potential. She's figuring out a lot of things, but I don't think that anyone is believing her.

    I was actually impressed that Candice put that together on Sunday's show.

    I am SO glad CBS aired the racism in the house. My jaw just dropped and I was all OMFG THEY DID IT!! But I wish they had shown Jeremy's rude remarks as well as Spencer.

    All I can say is they are in for a RUDE awakening when they leave the house and GinaMarie finds out she has no job, Aaryn finds out she lost her modeling contracts. Hopefully a few more of these bigots lose their jobs.

    I heard that Spencer works for the railroad and is also in hot water with his job, but they have to follow proper union procedures for dealing with it.

    I stopped watching BB around BB3 but I am watching it now just to see what will happen with the racists on the show. I want to see Julie's interaction with them during their interview after they are voted off.

    Oh she won't--or now that CBS has aired it--maybe they will. I know Julie talked about it on The Today Show today and she wasn't very happy, but Jeremy saying that they are going to use "all these cu*nts" is horrifying. He was on top of one of the girls talking to her VERY creepy like last week in almost a rapist pose like "no, you're going to do things this way." Like...I was very alarmed watching the feeds.

    Then lets not forget how he said he's going to KILL people like slit their throat etc if they vote to keep Elissa in.

    Ugh gross. Aaryn isn't going to be happy. She likes Jeremy. I hope Elissa puts her up and she leaves. I want Elissa to stay and torment these girls out of sheer spite.

    Why are they saying 'mobile' as in 'mobile phone' and not as in 'Mobile, Alabama'...is this a regional thing or are they idiots ( or is this a regional thing and they are idiots regardless)?

    I suspect the latter. I would pronounce it with a long I sound. I've never heard this particular type of mobile pronounced mobul.

    Clearly they are idiots regardless.

    It hasn't aired here yet, but the BB Facebook page posted plans/drawings for the competition. It looked like baby mobiles. That's what you're talking about? Yes, definitely "mobile" as in the city, not as in phone.

    :lol: I just described "one of those things that hangs down over a crib for a baby" to my hoosband and asked him what he calls it. He pronounced it like the phone. :lol: He is from the South, so....

    Hoping it's Nick that goes.
    But if the girls decide to listen to Candice about an all boy alliance, then I prefer the fellas.
    Favorites for me right now are Howard, Judd, and Candace.

    It's been a while since I was this happy about a show. I was just giddy as Nick was voted off. (I didn't think they could pull it off.)

    I like that they somewhat touched on the racist moments last night. I wish though that theyd call both Aaryn and Gina into DR and address the comments. Neither has any idea of the outside implications of their bad behavior...both have been let go from their jobs. Gina was crying about Nick being voted out...just wait until she finds out she's lost her job.:mad:

    I'm hoping when the women meet with Julie after getting the boot she tells them they've been fired. Don't let them find out off air.

    Some of the people in the house this year are absolutely repulsive.

    Did you see the part when Julie was talking to Aaryn last night? Julie asked Aaryn if she ever forgot that there were cameras in the house. Aaryn said something about how she never forgets about the cameras, that she's a "very open person", and that America knows a lot about her now. Julie responded, "Yes, we all do." There was definitely a coldness there in Julie's voice. Julie has said in interviews that these racist comments have hurt her and reminded her of bullies in her youth. :(

    At this point, the show is getting a lot of talk for having the racist 'houseguests'...might boost ratings, lead to some conversations, but in the longer run,is just hurtful and disgusting. One would hope these 'guests' do a little self reflection when they get out, but I just don't think they're deep enough for introspection.:2cents:

    YAY for HOH last night!

    I found it odd how loudly Ginamarie sobbed. I'm sure she got pretty close to Nick in 3 weeks, but that close?

    I'm thinking Helen will put up someone like Aaryn, Jeremy, Spencer, Kaitlyn. Maybe the boys?

    Do you think Elissa will get MVP again? I am hoping someone else.

    Yes, I noticed too. I think Howard, Helen, and Candice all have good chances of winning.

    I was SO HAPPY about the HOH win! For a second I thought Kaitlin was going to get it and I was pretty upset.

    GinaMarie has an ugly cry. Yuck.

    I think that Helen's best bet is to put up Aaryn and Jeremy, with Kaitlin as a backup in case veto gets used. I'm not sure if she'd put up Spencer, but I wouldn't mind seeing him gone.

    I also want someone else to win MVP. I think it would actually be better for Elissa right now if someone else did. I'd love to see Candice get it.

    Maybe Helen should nominate girls...Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Kaitlyn. Then if any 4 of them win veto, put up Jeremy. Of course, Elissa or Helen would need to be MVP to get the 3 gals there...or maybe Candace.

    I was ecstatic to see Helen win HOH. I'm hoping any combination of Aaryn, Jeremy, GinaMarie, or Kaitlin are on the block.

    I'm wondering who will MVP. Early in the episode I thought Helen was getting a great edit, but I wonder if winning HOH will make people more likely to vote for someone else for MVP.

    I'm still cheering for Amanda, Helen, Howard, Judd, and Candice. On the fence about Elissa and Andy, and don't care much for the rest.

    What exactly is the point of that show anyway? Since I've been staying up really, really late this summer, I often have to use the TV Guide channel to avoid the infomercials. After Hours has been on. It took me awhile to even know what it was, and I was looking at the listings, not exactly concentrating on what they were doing . . . but I totally don't get it.

    Of Big Brother? It's a reality game show like Survivor, but the focus is almost purely on the social game and not as much on the physical stuff (although there is some).

    Years ago it used to be wonderful and pretty smart. Now, with the current producer, it often feels recycled and old. I still watch it because there's a special place in my heart for it, though.

    :)

    The HGs just found out who was nominated by the MVP (i.e., the viewers). I'm curious to see what you guys think of the nomination. I was surprised, but also incredibly amused.

    They used to have a big mix of people and it was interesting to see how they played the game differently. It is not as good as it was the first few years, but I still watch.

    I honestly think that casual viewers thought they were still voting for an MVP like the last few weeks, instead of voting directly for the 3rd nominee.

    I will be interested to see whether America's nominee wins/uses the veto, who would be put up by America in their place at that point.

    I think you nailed it.

    Any replacement nomination would probably be the HG who received the next highest number of votes.

    The photo caps are great!

    So, how crazy is Gina Marie!?! They knew each other for a week and it was never anything! I'm being completely serious when I say she needs inpatient counseling.
