Some things that seems different this season,and maybe it's just the editing..this group does not seem to be interested too much in: excercising, playing pool, or going in the pool, no one washes alot, no one is really memorizing anything in the house either...

I don't care to fight anybody. I was stating my personal opinion about the fact that this woman sounds crude, uneducated, and lack of morals. I did not address it to anyone.

When Blondie/ racist starts looking better than this woman, something is wrong.

She is also a bully, who picks fights when there aren't any, and gets paranoid when there is no need. It must be a regional thing!!!

When America picks the MVP ,you realize don't you that it is the producers of the show selecting the person . Even though Amanda was selected twice she gives BB15 the highest ratings the show has ever had .If Helen or Andy were the MVP nobody would care .
Amanda may not win but she will be on the show for a while yet .
The 2 favorites to win are now Andy and McRae.

Andy is a floater. McCrea may seem to be a real game player but he is being pulled along by Amanda. In reality he is also a floater. Elissa, right now, is flying under the radar and even though many may not like her - Helen is a real game player and seems to be able to play everyone to her own advancement.

Spencer is being investidated for child porn.

TRIP:Spencer made pro Hitler statements in the BB house .That to me is a lot worse than anything Amanda said.

LF:
I doubt the producers are choosing the MVP. They would be opening themselves up to too many lawsuits and there would be a backlash similar to the $64,000 Question debacle.

I bet the producers are loving all the publicity they are getting out of the dumb stuff that is coming out of the contestants mouths.

I did look up what Spencer said and it is very offensive to me and I can't understand how the other house guests could tolerate it, even if he was saying it as a joke.

I think I'll switch to re-runs of Gilligan's Island.

Take care,
Mike

I was going to post the TMZ aricle and video about the moron that is Spencer, but decided not to, because it was not for this forum...I swear you must leave your brains on the sidewalk as you enter the house.") When he gets home, let's see if he is still working for the railroad...!! That could mean 3 firings, and, one with no clients!

McRae reminds me of Ronnie, who was in the house a few years ago.

I am running out of people to cheer for.

I think Helen is playing a good game.

Mike, I read what you said, and got to thinking about what this show would be called in a court of law.

I am going to sound like another member now, so hold on.

I called a friend, who deals with "show Biz" contracts. This is what he said. They are listed as actors as far as the biz union is concerned.

For tax purposes are concerned, they are also listed that way.

They must be paid union scale each day that they appear on the show. Anything they do extra, can include extra pay. (Wondered why they cheer when they get to host a contest)

Their contracts have a very strict confidentiality clause.. He has not seen theirs, but did see one from Survivor, and it was five million for any details disclosed about the behind the scenes operations.

Because they are listed as actors, what they do can be real, or written.

It is not considered a game show, so rules don't apply. My friend says that the rules are not written for the "guests, but for the show, and that the rules to protect the guests, have yet to be written, because they follow under the actor rules.

Some of you might remember when the first winner of Survivor was in court for not paying his taxes. It was thought all the juicy stuff would come out, but the lawyers for the networks were also there, to protect the secrets.

Mike, I asked him about the picking of the MVP. He has not seen the show except a few times, but he said to listen to Julie when she talks about people voting for the third person. He said to listen to words like, "Who would you pick?" He asked if she says "Only the viewers pick"

He said basically they could do what they want to do, as long as union rules are followed.

FYI There is a U-tube of some of them talking and one says "The BB gods don't want Howard to go home this week" Someone reminds the group that they are not allowed to talk about the diary room.

Moraine,

I agree. I watched Wednesday and Thursday's show and I really don't like any of them and could care less who wins.

The racism and all the other "stuff" sure has drawn in more people. The skeptic in me whispers that it's all a production stunt for viewers.

Take care,
Mike

that was a shocker - didn't see it coming!

I liked him too. I'm rooting for Helen but she's a bit devious and manipulating too.

Never been a fan of the mean girls, and that includes Candace. She can say she's sticking up for herself but she does so in an antagonistic kind of way.

When I went to bed, Aaryn was the hoh..when I woke up, the hoh is Andy!!

The spin of someone being on the jury, and the possibility of coming back is intriquing. I do think BB needs to come up with some new shtick, so the crew, won't be able to predict what's coming next, like Pandora's Box...

I don't like the last minute "Spins". It's like they make it up as they go along. Someone good is in the jury? Let's give them a way to come back.

I think from the onset, all rules should be clearly laid out, and you know for sure that if you make it to week X you will be in the jury, and the first five jury members will have the ability to come back on week Y

Kind of like Last Chance Kitchen for Top Chef. They tell you when they kick you out that you might stay alive in last chance kitchen.

Mike, I agree with you about the stunt. I watch a video of Julie on her other show talk about how hurtful it was to hear, but her husband is in charge of CBS, so he could have nipped it when it started, if he was not in it for the ratings.

Looks like CBS will be known as the promoter of racism.

I just read this in a BB Blog....the crapola continues with this beauty.

Though Amanda should be happy that she is, once again, in charge without actually having to do any of the work herself, she’s not. In fact, she’s pretty mad that Andy didn’t let her win the HoH competition. I can understand that Amanda is homesick and wanted to get a letter from home but seriously, they way she was carrying on about it was just over the top.

Looks like Sunday's show will be a whine fest!

It sure has gone down hill fast. What will Judd say when he finds out that Amanda spread the rumor about him being MVP to get him kicked off?
