    I always dislike the online hate mob more than the haters in the house.

    Aaryn is the HOH. Trying to figure out the votes on how David got the boot. If she's smart (probably not) she'll figure Jeremy had a hand in it.

    Only to keep his hands clean. Spencer is the key. The girls HAVE to figure out their connection if they want to stay and not get 'moved' out.

    On a funnier note, there is a major misinformation campaign in play right now by the MC and the floaters (basically everyone who voted out David) to confuse the hell out of the people ho voted out Elissa. The upshot is, if it makes it to TV it should be some entertaining TV into who voted for who.

    Might actually be out. While I like the twist of the MVP and how that can screw things up, I don't like that America chooses. No way to know if it is truly who America voted for. The editing can skew how people are perceived.

    Add to this the "cheating" that supposedly went on in regards to the past HOH comp and I am close to bailing on this.

    Maybe I'm naive, but I don't think there is anyway CBS would award the MVP to anyone who didn't actually receive the most votes. They're charging a buck a text, so surely the whole process has some oversight, right?

    some people seem to forget that bb is aired on broadcast tv, and therefore subject to the rules and regulations of the fcc. if they rigged any part of the game, they would be fined and/or shut down for good.

    due to cbs and endemol contractual obligations, both inside and outside the house, i suspect they do everything they can to avoid crossing the fcc, inviting a lawsuit, or asking for any negative publicity regarding deception. that would not only permanently tarnish their reputations, but would ultimately end a successful show, and open both companies up to a heap of unwanted trouble from many different directions. it's simply not worth it.

    There was a Survivor lawsuit some time ago where it was ruled that reality shows are not subject to gameshow regulations. Also, the fine print on the CBS website gives them the right to reject any vote for any reason.

    1000 times this. It is not classified as a game show and thus does not have to follow those regulations.

    reject, not alter.

    game show regulations are not the only tools available if there actually was wrong doing.

    Either way they achieve the same goal. If player A has the most votes but producers want player B to win, they just reject enough of player A's votes to push player B to the top spot.

    Yowza... some NSFW action last night.

    [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xcnXNQeHuc[/media]

    Also around midnight, it sounds like Jeremy and Kaitlin's relationship progressed.

    Amanda is out there sometimes. It reflects in her play, not disciplined. More NSFW between Jer and Kait but that is going to be most nights when they have time alone these days.

    ok, let's say you're right, the votes are fixed, and the producers are altering votes just to give viewers the illusion of participating without influencing the outcome.

    why do you watch? why would anyone watch? and why would anyone try out to be on the show? if you really believe it's true, and watch anyway, why complain?

    Where did I complain? I watch because I like the show. I really don't care if the producers are fixing votes. We all know they try to direct the drama in the house via the diary room. It's part of the show.

    BTW, I didn't say that they ARE fixing votes, just that they could based on the language used on the website.

    Jeremy was the MVP nom. He won Veto and took himself off the block. The MVP (Elissa) replaced him with Nick.

    So Either Helen gets screwed this week, Elissa gets tossed because the MC can't pull it together, or Nick goes home and I think the MC falls apart (McCrae hooking up with Amanda and Elissa, Howard, Spencer, and Jeremy forming a new MC).

    The last half of that sentence is speculation on my part. I would be willing to bet money Helen goes home.

    Shoulda put up Kaitlyn as replacement nom. She was already freaking about it and it would put her over the edge and Jeremy with her.
