    People's...
    Brit thinks people actually listen to her thus her shock when she told Willie not to say anything about it and he did anyway. :)

    Read one line further down on the page I linked.

    Regardless of what you want to call what he did he did it. And Frank did seem to react to it when Willie said it. It is hard to know exactly what someone intent is with comments or actions like that. Especially someone you barely know who lied to you 2 or 3 times in span of a week. And yes lying is part of the game but when you don't trust someone and they screw you over it makes it even harder to trust them or give them the benefit of the doubt.

    OK, so there is a 3rd or 4th version of the definition that means "to imitate speech". We all know that the common usage of "mock" has a negative connotation. Shown by the fact that when Wil was told he was "mocked", he said "no one is going to make fun of me". You are right, no one except Willie knows whether he intented to make fun of him, but it's pretty clear that he wasn't talking like Wil to poke fun at him or put him down. Maybe Frank just misread the situation.

    Yes, I think Frank overreacted to Willie's imitation of Wil and his vote splitting strategy.

    I'm in the camp that thinks that Willie was mocking Wil. I don't think Frank overreacted. He didn't flip out, he just told somebody else.

    I give credit to the editors for probably making this a bigger deal than what it was inside the house.

    Frank implied Willie had homophobic intent. Wil ran with it and played the victim. All the emotions are entwined with gameplay, so there was some overreacting.

    Maybe I'm remembering wrong....I thought that Frank wasn't actually there when Willie made the remark. Is it Joe--the cook, I think--who heard it and ran and told Frank, thinking he could use it to his advantage. Which he did.
    So Frank was taking the other guys word for how "mocking" it was. Or maybe I have it wrong. :confused:

    Frank and Britney were there. Frank told Jenn and Joe first. Frank said Willie mocked his voice or a gay voice. And that he (Joe) might want to tell Wil. So Joe told Wil.

    Just rewatched that part.

    Anyway it will be interesting to see if Willie survives the week.

    In what way do you think Willie was trying to criticize the way Wil talks?

    I didn't say criticize, I said mock. I don't think he criticized it.

    Criticize is the way Frank portrayed it, and based on that, it was the way Wil took it.

    I already deleted it, but that was not my recollection.

    Wil wasn't there, so the way he took it can only be based on the way it was presented to him.

    I hope Willie survives since I have him and Jenn in a pool. But he is one of my favorites and I don't think Jenn will go to the end.
