    I see there's a spoiler thread, but I don't know if it's for the entire season or After Dark or whathaveyou, so I'm starting up this season's first individual thread.

    What do you think so far? Thankfully the returning guests thing is only in a coaching capacity. And I only remembered Janelle and Boogie by name. I had to see Dan and Brittney before I remembered them.

    I hope that Survivor brother guy goes soon. I hate when people lie about their outside lives. And Dan made a good choice in eviction, Jodi seemed to be dead weight.

    First thoughts were what on earth do they think britney can do as a coach? Didn't she just ride on coat tails her season until the guys decided to get rid of her? But she is hot in a bikini so it's ok to have here there :p


    I can't remember names yet but I'm hoping the flamboyant guy goes quick.

    I haven't watched survivor in years so I don't know who the guy is that the house guests were referring to. But I don't really like the way the brother comes off.

    I thought it was funny that Willie Hantz was recognized right away by the nerd, and then soon afterward by Boogie. He really thinks he can hide it? But he's safe for the first week.

    So far I like the new cast. I am pleased to see my favorite BB player of all time Dan back in the house, but also disappointed in his crew. Those women do not look like they can win competitions or play a social game. I think Dan wil be first to go.

    Oh, and kind of proud I guessed the shows one big twist:

    So far so good. Seems like a fun cast.

    I sure would be pissed to be the first to go and you haven't even had a full day at the house.

    Poor girl got picked last AND gets booted.

    It is how Brit gave Willie the HOH so he could solidify his position in the house yet she was the only coach that was not shown discussing how Willie looks like Russell. I am fairly sure she caught on as well if she made that comment.

    Dan should have picked at least one guy for his team. Too many of the competitions require some sort of strength or size. Just as some comps are better suited for lighter smaller people.

    I think it was stupid that guy tried to lie / hide who he was. There is a good chance if you are fan of BB you might also watch Survivor.

    I thought it was interesting the guy from Naples lied about being unemployed at least one house guest thought he was not totally honest.

    And the nurse (one of the two left on team Dan) said she was a teacher or something. Not really honest either. And she is working on two degrees.

    I liked it quite a bit. It will be fun to see how things play out as the coaches try to get their players to the end.

    I think Willie just needs to fess up. Enough people know about what his brother did, where he's from, etc to realize he wasn't going to hide it.

    Screw you CBS for listing it as in HD on the guide data and for having it in SD. Is it really 2012?!? If they can film crabbing on the Bering Sea in HD they sure as H*ll can show this prime time major network show!

    About the chick that got booted. I didn't like that she kinda spoke about her step kids like it was a negative. She also spoke about all these athletic things she does which if true good for her but she IS a plus sized woman sooooo...yeah.


    I hope Willie puts up the first picks of Janelle and Boogies teams. That is what I would do. Get rid of the their main competition. Alot of ppl seem to not like Willie simply cuz he is Russell's brother. So there is no wonder why he tried to hide that.
    No one said nothing about that woman claiming to be a teacher.

    This. It's a joke. Is there anther network prime time show still filmed in SD? There probably is, but I can't think of one.

    Anyway, I like it so far. The coach thing is an interesting twist, and outside of Janelle, I am ok with the coaches (I don't really mind her that much, but she comes off to me as arrogant...Boogie does too, but I'll fogive him because he was in Chill Town).

    The challenge was funny. Laughed a lot.

    The bigger joke is that all the cameras are already in HD because After Dark IS AIRED IN HD!!!

    I'd bet it has nothing to do with the cost of HD cameras but the difficulty of being able to edit together the show so quickly. The amount of data is orders of magnitude greater in HD than it was in SD. The crab fishing editors have months of leadtime to put together an episode.

    I wonder if Glass House is only on once a week due to it being in HD.

    Which is what Indy said too in another thread.

    I am fine with it. I rather watch this show 3 times a week in SD then watch Glass House in HD once a week.

    Aside from HD/SD BB is much better show.

    I'm hoping Glass House being a BB clone and in HD forces their hand.

    Back to the show:

    I love the coach idea but I would have preferred to bring back 2 coaches so they each have 6 people. Having only 3 players (2 now for Dan) to coach isnt very much.

    I'm going to be curious to see if people stick to their teams or if other alliances form.
    People may end up getting along more with people outside their team then on their team.

    There is no incentive for the houseguest to stay with their teams so I would expect they don't....or at least they would smart not to.

    I'm still not sure I fully understand how this is supposed to work. Was the captains picking the HOH/evictee a one time thing or is that every week? Will they always compete as teams or as individuals?

    The way I understand it is that each of the coaches now has 3 players (Dan is now down to 2) and that's set.

    Everybody plays as individuals however and the individual who wins the $500k at the end also wins $100k for their coach.

    Until there is a twist of course....
