Default THIS IS WRONG ,Luanne

[QUOTE=Luanne Russo;1481666]I am running out of people to cheer for.



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.

If you appear LIVE on a TV show you are paid X amount of dollars. At one time it was $900 .
The contestants on Big Brother ,Survivor and the Amazing Race are not considered to be actors unless they really are actors ,an example Jonathan Penner who was recently on Survivor .
I know people who have been contestants on all of the 3 reality shows I just mentioned and they were never told they were actors.

If what you say is true, then she is in violation of her contract and should be removed for the house, and fined, unless your sources are watching the live feeds, and in that case, your sources are not really sources.

Plezzzzzzzz!!

They do not sign contracts .They sign clauses stating that they will not divulge the outcome of the show before it airs .

My reference to sources is Amanda's cousin and that only pertains to her relationship with McRae.I assume he is privy to some on line site that I am not privy to .
Everything else is based on conversations i've had with contestants on BB,Survivor and Amazing Race.

Don't go on a salt free diet just yet......I wonder if your connection, albeit 3 times removed would be the same to you, if she was just another shlub on the show? You don't really believe a connection after the show will continue, do you?

Why not share that site you refer to, with all of us...then we can get another pov on her raves and rants.

I should have known you would have another source to make it seem like you knew more.

Your family reunions must be wild. Everyone trying to out prove the other.

Again I say Plezzzzzzzz

Now back to the real issue I am slowly getting uninterested in BB. It is more like watching people in the loony bin.

I had to laugh this morning at the beauty shop. They were talking about Amanda boobs. I haven't noticed them, but the ladies say they are a bad boob job.

I read Sir Linksalot.com for my BB updates .

I personally am rooting for Amanda because she comes from my part of NY .
BB traditionally has token minority contestants .I would like to see a season where it would be the opposite and I tend to root for these people .

Moonves and Chen wed in 2004 in a private ceremony in Mexico and no details were released about whether any clergyperson presided over the nuptials.

I checked with 4 people who know Les Moonves and to the best of their knowledge Julie Chen did not convert .

My error .

I watched the show last night, and it's as if the air has been let out of the balloon. I guess it will come down to which racist will get the money.

Looks like it may go that way. Andy could have made a move but he stuck to comfortable.

No round of applause from me..wish the door would hit her on the tush Thursday night.....I think she came in with the plan to get a showmance going, to protect her for as long, as she could use him. It worked...he is going to be like a used napkin to her, when the show is over.

I agree. I think her plan is them to be the last two standing with him just handing it over to her. If he's dumb enough to do it.....

That will never happen .If I am not allowed to post the following you can remove it :

I will wager X amount of dollars with anyone that Amanda and McRae will be living under the same roof once she returns to Fla.Her relative assures me that the Amanda we see on BB is not the real Amanda.

Hey Trip: Mcrae is a good Minnesota boy. Amanda can't go wrong with him.

Take care,

The good news it is almost over with. If I was smarter, I would walk away, but I guess I'm not.

I don't have anything against Amanda's puppy. He is playing the game of keeping her bed warm.

I do hope that a non racist will win, but it looks like that will soon be a that's left.

I haven't watched Thursday or Sunday (moving soon) and the TV's have been disconnected

Gotta see if I can find the episodes online.

I was shaking my head and Helen being duped by McCrae saying he wants a final 3 with her and Andy. Seriously, she bought that?

At first I thought she was putting it on, but her diary room talk confirmed that she believes this story. silly, silly, girl.

I was also disappointed in Helen's gullibility, and why has someone not realized that the red headed guys telling each side what is going on. I was sure he would be caught by now.

What did you guys think of Amanda getting under the counter, with the trash can for protection?

LF, I don't believe for one minute that someone comes into the house and due to circumstamces within the house,suddenly becomes a racist. They walked in with that baggage,and it came out when they felt the need, to spout, & belittle people.

I have a question for all of you. A couple of weeks ago Amanda showed everyone her new engagement ring. I noticed last night, she still has it on.

Question Do you bring one with you, just in case?

Do you as a boy toy, bring one just in case?

Does BB now offer not only condoms, but engagements rings?

One : When did I ever imply that I know anyone who owns CBS ,that is a ludicrous statement on your part .

Two:The outcome of the show is NOT scripted .

Exactly. That girl already had the issues when she walked in the door, why do you think she picked on certain people. Big Brother always disappoints me when it comes to humanity..you hear so many vicious things it is ridiculous. I'd so fail at Big Brother.
