No surprise with Candice but Judd?  Whose cheerio's did he pee in?  I have not been watching BBAD.  Anything revealing there that was left out on the live show?

Amanda assumed that Judd was MVP and being sneaky. She, Helen and Mccrae seem to be running things right now.

I expected Candice might go, but I was blindsided by Judd's ouster.  More than that, I expected Helen to recognize Amanda's threat and make a move against her.  That, of course, didn't happen.

 

The biggest disappointment is the realization that I gave Helen too much credit.  It's now obvious that she's playing Amanda's game and not her own.  I agree with Spacemaker, but for one exception: McManda is in charge, yes, but Helen is just a puppet whose strings appear to be in Amanda's hands.

 

Amanda can now claim credit for being the most hated houseguest since Evil Dick.

From TMZ

 

'Big Brother' Contestant
Probed By Cops Over
Child Porn Jokes

 

"Big Brother" contestant Spencer Clawson just learned a valuable lesson about child porn ... don't even joke about that crap ... because cops will go after you.

In case you didn't see the clips from this week -- Clawson grabs the microphone attached to McRae (another houseguest) and while pretending to be McRae, Spencer goes off on this really uncomfortable riff about child porn, saying, "I like to beat off to child porn. Did I ever tell y'all about that? I love it. Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is."

You'd think he'd stop there, but no ... he kept going, saying, "I love it when they're around three or four years old. My favorite ones are when you can tell they're in a basement."

And the jokes didn't go unnoticed ... especially by Spencer's hometown police in Arkansas.

Chief AJ Gary from the Conway Police Department in Arkansas tells TMZ, "The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made.  Due to the nature of the comments, our department moved quickly to look into the matter.  At this time we haven't found that any criminal act was committed."

Good news, but still ... don't make child porn jokes. They're not even funny.


 

 

I equate this seasons cast to that piece of poo that is stuck to the toilet in a public restroom. Where did they find these people. The racest comments are out of control really who talks like that? Couldn't believe the comments out of Gina Marie's mouth last night about Candice being adopted. Can't stand Amanda and McCare either. Can't believe no one is trying to break that little couple up. I also watch the British one and years back they had a big raceism issue and the government there almost pulled the show. It is against there rules there now and house guests can be kicked out for it. There format is also way better then ours. The viewers vote people out and all house guests nominate. House guests can't talk about nominations and they have a bunch of tasks through out the week. Much more interesting show to watch. This years cast on ours really turns me off.

Good question! 

 

Maybe Helen, but I don't watch BBAD so I can't categorically say, and it would seem out of character.

[spoiler]

 

I agree, but with a little reservation.

 

[Sorry for being cryptic in what follows, but I don't want to reveal your Spoiler.]

 

Our "spoiler target" was the first one to attempt a game-changing move last week. The rest of the lemmings (including Helen) just followed the leader. In the end, our target's vote had to follow the rest of the house, but not before risking nomination this week for speaking out of conviction. It might have worked had the plot not been leaked.

 

All-in-all it was a decent game play.  Sorry to see that it's going to backfire.

Ya wish they carried it here but they don't so I watch online. THere format is way better the viewers vote people off and the house guests can't talk about nominations. This week is going to be a snore on the US one.

Yeah, Andy just doesn't seem to have the knack for intrigue that others do.  Just the same, this will get us one week closer to the finale.  And hopefully, Amanda will have gone to the jury house long before then.

 

TheRatPatrol was kind enough to send me a link in a PM.  Morty'stv also carries the BBGB and BBAU versions. If only I could keep track of so many names and events.  I do like the twist in this year's BBGB season, though.

I would not mind seeing Amanda win the whole thing.  She is playing a good game and if we find out she is just playing macrae then even better.  Although I do not always agree with the way she handles things with some of the houseguests in the end this is just a game not a popularity contest. 

 

My preference for this week would be to back-door Helen.

THe UK BB has been great this season. Great cast of house guests. There "tasks" are great also. Watched a bit of the AU one also and it looks great also but can't handle all 3 :) Wish the AU one was on a different time of year so I could watch. BBUK ends next monday but then they have a celeb one starting... Also hoping to see Amanda march out the door. Can't handle her she is such a cry baby. Don't know how McCrae tolerates her. She goes off the deep end all the time. Helen is totally running the house and no one even notices that is in the house. As much as I think she is a snake she has played the best game by far.

I  respect your opinion.

 

My problem with Amanda is the same as with many other houseguests over the years; Soon after arriving, the strategy starts to reveal the real person.  I can't imagine going through life conniving and manipulating people.  The prize money is good, but is it worth the belittling of others that the "game" demands?  Amanda seems to revel in keeping her hands clean while using friends and foes alike to further her selfish goals.

 

As for Helen, I used to hold her in high regard, but I now see the company she keeps and have no use for her.

 

At this point it doesn't matter to me who wins as long as it's not Amanda or McRae, or Helen for that matter.

 

And that is my opinion.

Amanda is a big baby (can't stand her drama when she is on the block get over yourself) I think that is why I want to see her go. Helen has really been playing a dirty game getting others to do her bidding... It was her big plan to back door Judd too. Really hate most of the house this year. Would like CBS to take the prize money and burn it rather then give it to these people.

Completely understand where you are coming from but he game at its most fundamental level rewards players that can deceive and manipulate.  Although there are elements of normal society at play here most if not all of that has to be checked at the door.  No average person playing by all of societies rules could ever win the game. 

 

Howard was probably the single most shining example ever of someone completely conflicted while playing the game.  He was being torn apart by having to bury who he really is in order to have a shot at the prize.  To be a fan of the "game" requires the viewer to disconnect themselves a bit from their own societal tendencies and beliefs in order to appreciate those that are masters of it.  Does this make anyone a bad person?  Not in my book.  I chalk it up to merely someone that is really good at playing a game.

 

Do I think everything Amanda is doing in the house is noble?  No, but who cares?  It's a game on TV.  Do I think she treats everyone in her real life outside the game exactly as she does inside the BB house?  I highly doubt it but again who cares!? I am not planning on calling her after the season ends just like I did not bother to invite Dick Donato or Will Kirby out for beers after their seasons ended either.  I realize that Amanda's breakdowns and very poor treatment of some people makes her look weak and does not contribute anything positive to her gameplay but if she wins in spite of that behavior, well then more power to her.   

 

If we are going to judge those in the house by their actions then there is far more evidence that Aaryn has the most conniving and deceptive personality of all.  The racial comments and attacks followed by a complete turnaround to portray a sweet and kind southern girl are far more disturbing to me.  This is someone clearly used to getting what she wants and uses her carefully manicured external appearance to manipulate everyone around her.  Amanda has been a pretty straight shooter.  She tells it like it is, for good or bad.  Aaryn on the hand has demonstrated that she can bury her true feelings nearly completely and that takes years of practice.

In my mind, Aaryn is a stupid, spoiled girl who doesn't have the social skills to attend a birthday party for a 5-year-old. She doesn't know when to speak or when to shut up.  Without adult supervision, she's dangerous to all sensibilities.

 

I think Helen is figuring her out, though.  And she's probably already given that tidbit to Her Majesty Amanda I.

 

Amanda differs from Aaryn, IMO, in that she enjoys stepping (or I should say, causing others to step) on others in the house. There is a meanness about her that render moot any redeeming attributes she might have.

 

Manipulations don't always have to include her methods.  But above all, she's arrogant and walks about with a sense of entitlement that invites the dislike of a lot of outsiders - hence two back-to-back nominations.  It's one thing to play, it's another to do so in a bullying manner and only for her selfish gain.  If McCrae thinks she's going to marry him for real on the outside, then he deserves to deliver pizzas for the rest of his life.

 

Previous seasons of BB have had their gameplay moments, but I can't remember when one player wanted to truly hurt another ... ok, Natalie (BB11) doesn't count. :grin:

Doesn't matter which one leaves.  They're both grist to the mill. Besides, Helen missed her chance ... paying for it seems somehow right.

 

Nice how Amanda took her Goodbye message as an opportunity to gloat about an evictee going to the Jury House.  Real smart, Amanda ... and thanks.
