Big Brother 9-15-2013

Mostly a recap show.

The first round of HoH comp starts at the end. I don't see how GM can lose this round. Spencer won't last long at all.

It would have been much better w/o the 3 house guests doing the fake rehearsed discussion thing.

the rehash episode happens every season, and it hasn't improved over time - wish they had shown more of the hoh comp instead. i will be glad to move past this season of bb, and couldn't be more disappointed with the final three.

Yeah she was really coasting while the other were flopping around. It was kinda funny.

Loved the argument between Amanda and GM. Watched it twice it was so good.

When I first saw the HoH comp setup, my first thought was that this one is tailor made for GM.

As for the clip show, I don't know why they just didn't make last night the finale, or skip this and just go to Wednesday and make Wednesday 2 hours. Actually I know why ($$). Outside of the last 5 minutes (which will be recapped at the beginning of Wednesday's episode anyway), the episode was a waste of my time. Really all it showed was that this was a season about women screaming at each other, and nothing more. Drama central.

I did enjoy the segment on crying in the diary room and the final diary room clip was David saying how lame it was.

I can't stand when they do this every season. It's just like the "March of the Fallen Comrades" on Survivor. A pure wast of time.

That's exactly what my wife said to me the second it began. GM has proven to be quite good at the comps where you need balance and/or core strength. Spencer and Andy have neither of those two attributes.

I agree. I just want it over at this point. IMHO, this has turned out to be the lamest and least entertaining season in the history of the show.

This was the one EP I basically sat on the FF button. I stopped a couple of times to see what they were rambling on about, but that was it. I agree, GM seems like the one who would win this round.

If that had been on, I would have switched channels to it.

I hate this on BB, but I LIKE the "March" on Survivor. To me, it's ceremonial. It's like a rite of passage for those Survivors. In BB, it serves absolutely no purpose.

It also serves no purpose in Survivor, if they didn't do it, it wouldn't have any effect on the game at all.

I think I dislike it even more on Survivor. I fast forward through the entire thing every time.

At least they don't devote 3/4 of a show to it.

A clip show is fine. A clip show with the same things I've seen for 85% of it is pointless. If they mixed in more things we never saw that didn't fit an episode, that would be worth watching.

At this point, I'm assuming Spencer is a lock for the final two. Both GM and Andy would be idiots to take the other to the end. Spencer hasn't done sh*t, and he has virtually no argument as to why the jury should vote for him. The question is, who would Spencer take? I'm guessing Andy.

I agree, except I keep coming back to the point that these people aren't the best players and I could see either of them taking Andy, because he was a "friend" and loyal. Also, if they can make a compelling argument about how Andy stabbed each and every jury member in the back, they might not give Andy the win.

I laughed so hard at the end. Every time around Spencer and Andy were disaster waiting to happen and GM looked like she does it every day.

I thought McRae's expressions were priceless when Amanda was berating him for not defending her while GM was on her Jenga rant.

They have so much footage to choose from, why torture the viewers with stuff that has already been aired. Like the wine fight - what was that, the fourth time it has been shown? Show us more stuff like Andy falling into the pool.

Yeah too bad Mccrae did not stay for this comp. Apparently he is a pretty good ice skater from playing hockey so he would not have likely flopped around like Andy and spencer
