    Few would argue that this has been a season of compromise when it comes to choosing who should win. Like you, only Judd winning would save it for me, but even Judd is a compromise. Most of this season has been a roller-coaster ride for me. First I liked Helen, then I liked Jessie, then Elissa, and finally Judd.

    The only two players (should they return) that I would no longer want to win are Helen and Elissa. To me, my disappointment in them includes shoddy playing, poor judgment, hypocritical social game, and a healthy dose of incredulity.

    Judd is my last hold-out. If he gets evicted, then the winner and CBS deserve all of the criticisms and denunciations that are sure to come their way.

    Here is a rare editorial from Morty (at the MortysTv site I frequent)...

    --------------------

    Very Disappointed: I was very disappointed in last night's Big Brother episode. I feel that the producers are sanitizing the character of the final five houseguests so that the viewers will tune in and cheer one of them on to victory at the finale, and be happy that one of them is getting $500,000. Last night's program only showed The Exterminator's happy that Amanda and Elissa were evicted, without any signs of the hateful tirades that have gone on since. Julie Chen said she feels that by showing the HGs as they are, we will learn from their inadequacies, so why cover it up now?

    I know my readers don't like it when I interject opinions into my updates, however I'll try to be fair and balanced about this, like Fox News would cover it. From the beginning of the season, I noticed (IMHO) that Elissa is a bit odd; she misses social cues, and is at times completely socially awkward, like being very blunt when the situation calls for the utmost tact. She flip-flopped on her decisions, further flawing her gameplay. But being a poor player, and being different is no cause for the vile hatred these people have for her and her family.

    The final five, and yes Judd too, have called her every offensive word in the book, not just a few times, but for hours on end. Andy seems to have a problem with the way Elissa's 15 year step-son is being raise because he owns three successful on-line businesses. Elissa said that her husband is a self-made millionaire entrepreneur and that he wants his kids to follow in his footsteps. Could all this hatred toward Elissa just be jealously?

    In the past we've seen HGs vote out people for being smart, are BB HGs predisposed to hate intelligence? If I had a chance to be mentored by Elissa's husband I would jump at it. I'd be his intern, errand boy, or anything to learn how to run a successful internet company. I've been running this site since 1997 and have learned nothing.

    While complaining about Elissa using the show do promote her exercise business, Andy said, "Elissersize dot com which makes you gain weight." GinaMarie adds, "It's a virus." Spencer: "And all proceeds go to help spread STDs throughout North America..." Andy: "I thought it went to the Adolph Hitler foundation." Spencer: "Yeah, some of the proceeds actually do... the Adolph Hitler 5K..." They all laugh and GinaMarie says, "and to the United Negro College Fund. You knew I had to throw that in!" Now correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't GinaMarie just equate the United Negro College Fund to Hitler?

    The poll on the left [posted on Morty's site - Henry] shows Elissa in the lead to get your vote for America's Favorite player. I think many of you are voting like we do in our elections, we're really just voting against the other guy. The thing that bugs me is that if Elissa wins, the final five will think that she won because she's Rachel's sister and support from the "Brenchel Army," even Elissa thinks she won MVP because of Rachel's fans. Once again, this is just my opinion, but Elissa has more fans of her own than Brenchel.

    --------------------

    In essence, it says what most of us feel.

    The article nails it. All that is really left is a bunch of immature brats that all think they are the best that ever played the game when in reality they are the first bunch of losers smart enough to be carried by a couple strategic players that voted out most of the strong competition early on. Although I did not care much for most of them either it is hard to deny that the most competitive players from a game standpoint are long gone. The episodes from here on out will be hard to watch without puking.

    McCrae would never fall for it. The idea to evict
    Judd is actually smart. He'd win the jury votes, easily.

    I think so. They'll tweak here and there and, like a recurring cancer, it'll be back.

    That would be my guess, unless this season is so dismal that they do it just to regain viewership. I know we disapprove of the casting. and the resolution, and the repeat competitions, and the voting methodology ... but I have to also wonder how CBS considers the season? Is it a financial success? One would think so given all of the press they got early on thanks to Aaryn, GM and Spencer. With it came eyeballs, no doubt. So, whether we like it or don't, what really matters is what CBS thinks.

    So, yes, get ready for more SD and more censorship over at TVGN. The more they change it, the more it will stay the same.

    Sure it will get renewed they have more viewers this year then last year. I agree expect the same boring format next year and they may get HD when 4k is mainstream. Surprised the show is in color cbs is so cheap with it. Expect the dumb zing bot and otev to be back as well. Show can really use a good twist. Crap cast made this my least favorite season of big brother by far.

    Yesterday, CBS taped the eviction episode you'll be watching tonight. Because of that, the live feeds were turned off very early and our update web sites had to scramble to keep reporting. MortysTv did something a bit different. Instead of the hash & rehash, Morty himself held an on-line chat that proved to be quite interesting. He talks (writes) about everyone in the house, past seasons and some of those characters; gives his predictions, and even talks about some of the overseas versions of the program.

    For me, this has been a bust of a season. That's just one man's opinion, of course, and CBS could not disagree with me more. There's no doubt in my mind that we will be seeing more of BB in the future. Even though most of us viewers are a bit ticked off with the choice of HGs this season, I'm sure we'll belly up to the TV next season.

    In the end, were else could a young and impressionable mind go to see racism, homophobia, misogyny, conceit and deceit, all in one place and on one show? These must be the values CBS wants our young ones to emulate ... or they might have made better choices.

    Since only social trash remains in the house, I don't really care who wins.

    I'm not sure what CBS is up to. MortysTv is reporting that the eviction will be televised tonight, although Wednesday nights are usually devoted to canned tapings of the PoV ceremony. If they do a live show tonight, I have no clue what comes tomorrow although the EPG calls for a BB eviction and a new HoH comp. I'm as confused as most of you. :shrug:

    Keep in mind yesterdays show was taped on tuesday so Expect to see Nominations tonight a veto ceremony and someone evicted. Will also probably see the endurance start to a three part hoh comp for the last hoh that is gurenteed to be in the final 2. I agree nothing but trash left in the house. They should devote tonight nothing but losers left night and take them money and donate it to charities that help the people these jokers insult. Give money to the united negro fund, Human Rights campaign. Then send these jerks out the door with nothing. Curious what the MortysTv guy said about other countries versions of Big Brother... Know none of the racest stuff would be allowed in the uk. They are given a warning and then kicked off the show for acting like that over there.

    Right on all counts, th. I'm thinking about tuning into the next UK season. The US version is still up in the air with me, but my wife will, no doubt, watch it.

    It would be a hoot if BB gave the money to UNCF, but they won't of course.

    Ya I will be watching the UK one next year for sure. I will start watching the US one as well, but if it is like this season I will be tunning out. May match the Australlian one instaed although it starts much later in the summer. So far I like the UK one best. They have all kinds of great twists.

    Man, I hate to think what I would do if Andy wins this season. All the teary eyed scenes, all the flip flopping on those in his alliances and then trying to rationalize his being a loyal player to those close to him. His total delusion that he is actually the strategic one. He was carried a long way through the game by others in the house. I see him as nothing but a weak kneed floater that decided at the last minute to turn and back stab members of his original alliance that carried him on their backs all the way there. I have no problems with any remaining players winning EXCEPT him.
