    I remember this for Survivor (and the first time Survivor did it was to specifically give Rupert $1 million). I don't remember them doing it for BB. But I could definitely be wrong.

    I was glad that Elissa followed Amanda. When McCrae goes, I think they will be even worse than they were in the house by openly having sex everywhere in the house especially since there are no cameras active 24/7.
    I knew Amanda was going to blame editing on making her look like a bully but I'm glad Julie Chen set her straight when she said we saw it all. I didn't see it all because I didn't subscribe to live feeds this year but do watch BBAD.

    Just because you'd hang out with her doesn't make her smart, does it? You only hang out with smart people? Heck, in my family and friends there are smart people and not so smart people. Some of the smart people are total jerks and some of the not so smart people have hearts of gold and are great to hang out with.

    At least when I say someone is dumb, I am only referring to how she is/appears on the show. She's done NOTHING in the show to make me believe she's otherwise. She might be a MENSA member, but I don't see it. She gives off the impression that she isn't all that bright. But that's based on game play and and 2 1/2 or so hours of TV time a week.

    True that. But some of her actions and her words give me the impression that it's not just her voice.

    I was a Rupert fan that season, and it irked me too. Especially $1 million, which made the game that season kind of moot. I still don't like that they do that, but at least they lowered the monetary amount.

    I think "stupid" is a vile word that is often misused by people who shouldn't necessarily be casting stones. I hate it. It makes me grind my teeth when I hear/read it. That's really my only point.

    The point about "hanging out" was just speaking to the fact that people can have value beyond their perceived intelligence...even in a game such as this.

    Is Elissa truly "stupid" for being blinded by Andy? ...when pretty much EVERYBODY in the house is also? No.

    ...and maybe intelligence is overrated if it makes people so smug and feel so superior that they struggle to understand or get along with people. Something to think about, because then that blurs the lines of what intelligence really is.

    I love Howard Gardner.

    I much prefer to hang with my not so intelligent friends than the more intelligent ones. Way more fun! The smart ones never want to do anything that may have consequences, the not so smart ones are always up for an adventure.

    At this point, I think you have to give Andy serious props for some excellent gameplay. His ability to deceive people using fake emotions has proven to be incredibly effective. Both Amanda and Elissa were completely snowed. I hate to say it, but of the people left in the house, he probably deserves to win more than anybody.

    McCrae's goose is cooked. He'll definitely be on the block this week, and if he doesn't win POV, he's going home. It's as simple as that. He just doesn't have the numbers.

    Can't believe Julie gave Amanda an kids glove exit interview. Amanda been just as bad as Aaryn and she got off easy.

    when Julie said she couldn't disclose anything that happened outside of the house I thought you sure did last week with Arryn with all the racial talk comments. I wonder if she overstepped her bounds? Or she did on purpose because of the topic and controversy.

    When she sat down with Julie the camera cut to the house guests but the studio mic was still on and didn't I hear Amanda say something like "wow they don't like me" or something along those lines once the audience groan/claps subsided?

    Yes. That's exactly what she said. The boos were obviously a wake up call.

    That what happens when your entire gameplay consists on teaming up with your "girlfriend" and you don't forge any relationships with the other housemates.

    I think McCrae had a real chance to go far in this game until he started thinking with the wrong head....which was what? First week?

    sweet home, al
    andy had to confess to amanda in the goodbye message, just in case elissa followed her to jury and they compared notes...he was prepping for final 2.

    when he said "it was only a game move", throwing amanda's own words in her face, will probably bite him more than admitting to it and trying to smooth it over with another excuse.

    elissa had enough evidence at this point to know better thant to trust andy 100%. if she was up on her game, she would have figured out right away andy betrayed her, and not that mccrae betrayed amanda. she is clueless when it comes to bb gameplay, and it was used against her.

    mccrae better win hoh or pov, or he's a gonner, and judd will follow him the next day without hoh or pov.

    I have no idea who Howard Gardner is. (well just Googled him :) )

    I think you're taking this way too seriously. Again, we are calling someone stupid essentially within the confines of the game. We have no idea what their life is like outside of the game. Saying this was a stupid move or saying that someone is not very bright for believing this or that, isn't a reflection on their full intelligence, or how smart they might be in regards to other things. I'm sure she's "yoga" smart in that she knows more about yoga and it's effects on the body and mind than most humans. We all have some things we are "smart" about. I know I'm "dumb" when it comes to spelling and grammar (as many have recently pointed out to me), so in the context of this forum, I'm stupid when it comes to that.

    And sometimes, you get a feel for a person, based on whatever, in Elissa's case, her voice, or her reactions to things, or whatever the makes you conclude certain things.

    It's a strange case for McRae in that if he didn't win HoH and went up on the block against Elissa, he might have survived that, because there's a reasonable argument that Elissa is more dangerous at the end. But him winning HoH guarantees he's going up this coming week and forces him to win Veto to save himself.

    On the other hand, if McRae didn't win this week, Elissa might have, since she was second if I recall.

    I think she might have gotten worse had there not been such a tight time constraint because of the double eviction.

    I always got the feeling watching Elissa play, that despite what she was saying about playing to win, that her being there was something she got talked into doing. Maybe by Rachel, or maybe the BB producers. Or maybe it was that rumored extra stipend she got. From day one she never seemed comfortable playing and she always seemed confused to me. Almost as if she had no idea how to play the game.
