Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

^The HGs are not allowed to talk about their diary room sessions on the live feeds at all, not just in front of other HGs. BB doesn't want any discussion of diary rooms or production to go out on the live feed for the audience to hear.

The Big Brother staff is in a weird position here where even if Frankie is breaking the rules, if they do anything at all they come off like giant assholes.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

So far I think this is the best season Big Brother has had.

Not just best casting. Best competitions, best editing. That shot where Caleb is playing with the fake sword while Cody and Amber are flirting was perfect. It's like, it's been sixteen years. What took them so long to stage the show like this?

Seriously, four weeks in and I don't want to shoot anyone. That's a Big Brother first.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

Something else I noticed is that none of the houseguests appear to be smokers. Is that a coincidence, or do they now have rules about that?

So, Frankie and Zach are the new HoHs. They're going to be alone in the HoH room ... Oh, Zankie is so going to happen tonight. Right after Julie announced they were the winners, they looked at each other and had that "we're so doing it" expression.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

Can someone enlighten me as to why Victoria feels the need to diss everyone in her votes. "Devil Devin." "Conniving Brittany." Show some class for god's sake.

Is it any worse than "I happily vote to evict _______"?

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

Sure, it's not as bad as Danielle calling Roddy the devil in her season, but it's distasteful for a girl whose only competition win came because Caleb went into beast mode idiot.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

I don't get the live feeds, so there may be things going on that we don't get to see, that could be influencing how she expresses herself in the diary room.

At any rate, I doubt she's got any hope of winning overall. At this point I'd be happy with either Donny or Frankie winning.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

Victoria's definitely in the wrong season. She should be in the clique season treating Michelle like crap, or last season making racist comments, or season 6 in the 'Friendship Five'. Ivette is probably watching from home somewhere thinking "Now THAT'S a girl I can relate to."

At this point there are a lot of people I wouldn't mind to see win. Frankie and Derrick are probably the ones I'm rooting for the most. I like Donny but I don't think his game so far deserves to win.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

Yeah, I'd be happy if either Derrick or Frankie won. Although I don't see how Frankie's style of gameplay isn't going to blow up in his face at some point.

He wins competitions, runs back and forth to everyone in the house and they obviously know its him. Everybody loves him. Sooner or later, Derrick will realize he can't take either Donny or Frankie to the finals or he'll lose. Out of everyone, Zach has done the best job of saying "Take me to the final two, people think I'm an asshat."

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

Everyone loves Donny but they also know he's not a reliable ally. He blabs secrets, he gets tunnel vision on one problem, he plays emotionally.

I agree Zack is playing a bang-up second place game.

Edit: I just happened to see the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine dates the 'Mimbo'. And I thought: HAYDEN!

From here forward this season, I will refer to Hayden as 'The Mimbo'.

What is up with the matching eyeglasses everyone seems to be wearing? I've noticed it before. I'm not even sure they're real glasses.

Re: Big Brother 16: Gentlemen, commence your appallingness!

It's just two of them (plus Nicole's mom)...

If you're having trouble telling them apart, Nicole is the one with the squeaky voice who gets stuck wearing the dumb costumes, and Christine is the one with the tattoos.
