I am rooting for Shane to win this season .
I am pulling for Shane also.

I'm also rooting for Shane to win!

The coaches coming back into the game was predetermined before the show even started, the facade of "America" voting was no more than publicity. They each had their key slots next to their pictures from the beginning. Britt even mentioned it to Willie during the very first HOH reign. I know that ALL of these reality shows are all about ratings, and are heavily edited! (watch the live feeds if you want to know just how much editing is done and how often certain events are blocked from the live feeds.) They even have private conferences with each house guest in the diary room to discuss how they will vote!

But ...... like a moth to a flame ... I am drawn and STILL watch!

In the summer months I'll occassionally watch a "reality show" or two, just because there is little else on.

To tell you the truth... for the life of me I can't understand why anyone would want to visit "spoiler sites" to know any type of results ahead of time.

Seems to me that takes what is tenuously called "reality" and removes any reason to watch the coming "reality" of the episode.

I DVR TV shows in order that I do not have to sit through commercials . There are times when I might desire to tape shows airing opposite each other .In that case I might go to a spoiler site in lieu of watching the show . That for me eliminates watching the show .

My feeling is that Frank (and Boogie) will nominate Joe and Shane .They will tell Shane he is the pawn and they are after Joe .

My hope is that they nominate Joe and the person who needs the money the least .That is the person who has toured all over the world as a singer with a very well known group and has recorded many CD's .

I DVR'd last nights showing of Big Brother at 8PM my time .When I went to watch the show this morning I saw that the show did not begin till 8:20 because of a televised golf tournament that ran late .
Had I not read the spolier site I would not have known the results today.
