Morty has a few thoughts he'd like to share with us...
I wanted to ask you who you'd like to see win Big Brother 15, and I was going to give you a fourth choice, "None of the above," however, the jury doesn't get that easy choice, so why should you, pick one!
Voting for America's Favorite Player at CBS ends today at 11:59AM BBT. The poll I started last week has received 37,159 votes and as you can see from the results at the right, Elissa has an astounding lead with 44% of the votes.
Some web sites have campaigned for Elissa, I didn't. It's not that I wanted to appear unbiased, but because my reason for wanting Elissa to win is not very nice; I just want to see the final six really pissed off. Howard, who IMHO, is a very nice guy, wants the money to take his mother to see the Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington DC, which is a much more noble cause than pissing off a few loud mouths. I think most of 16,400+ voters on this site want Elissa to win to piss off the loud mouths, so although I'm not a nice guy, I'm not lonely. Spencer has said that if he wins the big prize he'd pay for Howard's pilgrimage to Washington. I'd really like to see all these scoundrels held to the promises they make in the house.
While I'm making snide remarks, let me throw a few at the producers. Is it just me or have they gotten lazy and complacent? With the motto, "Expect the Unexpected," things are pretty damn predictable. The houseguests were able to accurately guess the type of competition (i.e. OTEV, Before or After, Double Evictions, etc..) every week. It's time to switch things up! Like, for example, the PoV was a big twist when it was introduce over a decade ago, but now it would be a big twist that if they had PoV competitions that could result in no one winning the PoV. Now that would be a twist, everyone depending on a PoV, and then no one wins it! What if the winner of the PoV could keep it secret one week, like they do with the immunity idol on Survivor, and at the last minute someone could whip out the PoV and shake things up.
I previously suggested that throughout the season the HGs would have to do work, like making t-shirts that could be sold on line to raise money for a charity, and the HGs would earn BB dollars that could be used to buy food and beer, a better bed, or maybe even a PoV. Think of the deals that could be made if the HGs had a currency in the house to barter with.
Last winter we covered the first ever Canadian Big Brother and it was great. One thing that made it great was that once BB woke up the HGs, they were not allowed to go back to sleep, and at a reasonable hour, the lights would dim, to encourage them to go to bed. They had a talking moose on the wall (her name was Marsha) and a phone in the storage room, that gave HGs secret tasks they had to complete during the day. If they completed the task, at the end of the day, they'd get a reward, usually a party with booze. This gave them something to do all day, and yet they still had plenty of time to plot and scheme. The parties were usually not shown on the feeds, which gave us a break, and something to see on the TV show. The HGs were also punished for not wearing their mics, like they'd get their booze taken away. One girl that was always sleeping during the day got the CD player taken away from the HoH room for a few days. I really had hoped Big Brother USA would have adopted these policies as well. I feel the viewers are punished more than the HGs.
So there's my opinion for today. I figured I might as well write something, as I think the HGs are going to continue to bore us today.
