If anyone is interested, there are a few nsfw modeling pics of a few of the girls. And of Cody as an underwear model.

Also Caleb's Instagram caused a bit of controversy. Link. Not so much the picture, but the comments from him. He is insain_physique. Yes it was stupid, but it was also almost 2 years ago. Maybe he has matured.

more mature at 26 than 24? maybe is right, but i doubt maturity would affect his personal opinions, only whether or not it was wise to post hateful comments in social media - disgusting.

he was not one of my favorites for the season, now i hope he's first to go. anyone who likes to spew bigoted hate freely on social media shouldn't earn 75 cameras and 100 mics in primetime.

eta: are we supposed to believe the bb producers accidentally missed this...again? considering last year's controversies, i'm thinking they are doing this on purpose, for ratings.

This. I know it's TV and I don't believe for a second that this is true "reality" TV. Especially BB, where I've always felt that the vast majority of the houseguests are out of work or wanna be actors looking for face time. You'd think they could find better "people" than this.

Can you go to this well twice without turning off people? Sadly, I think you just might be able to. Hopefully we won't have another season where, by the end, the houseguests were just so horrible we wind up rooting for the lesser of two evils. Seems to happen a lot with BB.

Not to go all conspiracy theorist, but who says they missed it? Politics is very divisive, but that means buzz. And maybe they think that no publicity is bad publicity.

And I'm def. not defending the comments, but as bad as they are they're not in the same league as most of what was said last season.

I can believe they missed it. Fans are ridiculously obsessive. It was one comment on one picture about 2 years ago. The person that found that spent hours scouring his accounts. CBS probably looks at them, but they wouldn't go that deep.

I'm just trying to keep an open mind about him.

i understand your position, but i disagree with your classification of the comments as "politics" - you can state your politics without calling names or using bigoted slurs.
i'll wait and see what's said when the camera's start rolling, but my opinion won't change untill i see an effort by caleb to change it.

i'm not, not until there's an acknowledgement the comments were wrong followed by a genuine apology - and by genuine, i don't mean one only directed at "those who were offended".

Don't hold your breath.

Surely you can't expect everyone on the show to be saints? Watch the show and don't support him, but support someone else.

Or, just don't watch the show.

Well, yeah I mean these are people on a reality TV show, this is not a fully scripted show (see what I did there?).

Anyhow, that's exactly what your choices are, boycott the show, or just accept it, yes.

That doesn't mean you have to like the guy or agree with his views, I certainly dont.

i see another avenue that involves writing the producers, host, and network to express my disappointment (already done).

Does CBS allow concurrent streams on one Live feed account, from different IPs?

I'm wondering if my daughter can watch from her place, with me from mine.

Acct sharing = PW sharing. I'm sure thats a no no. If it wasn't concurrent it wouldn't raise a flag.

I'm sure it will work for awhile. At worst you'd have to sign up for another acct and pay the regular price once the other one got canceled for violating TOS.

I doubt they will do anything unless it's many ip addresses. I'm sure lots of people watch at work then at home etc.

They probably don't check for concurrency unless it's a lot of different ip addresses at once.

Remember this show is only 3 months or less, don't even care about their TOS like they might if it was a permanent site. It should work and nothing to lose. If you ever did have to call in trouble you say you watch at work and home, most homes are a couple so this should not be a problem. A problem would be as said, a hundred folks logging in.

Reading the above about the people it looks now like all the racist stuff last year may be fake if they are doing it again, you know the old fool me once... it won't work again. Can anyone tell us if last years so called bad folk actually had problems with job or school after BB ended, like they tried to say? If not, they were told it was just acting you see, this could help prove that.

Is it just me or does Cody bear a striking resemblance to a young John Travolta? The blue eyes, the shape of his mouth, and the chin dimple all make me think he looks a lot like him at times.

Yes, several people lost their jobs. Most have new jobs now. It's not that unusual for someone to get a new job after the show anyway. Most jobs that you can take 3 months off from aren't that serious. Aaryn/GM had modeling/pageant jobs so they can probably get more work. Kaitlyn moved to LA so she would've quit her job anyway. I know the union put out a statement when Spencer was let go from the railroad. I don't know if he got another job after that. I don't think Andy has been asked back to teach, but he only taught part time.

Andy was already on a semester to semester agreement with the college. He intends to return to teaching this fall. Right now he is enjoying the fruits of his winnings by traveling and what not.

I always wonder when someone says they were a former professional athlete how true it is. I looked up Devin and indeed he was drafted by the Cardinals played a short season of rookie ball, then he was suspended for the 2009 season (steroids anyone). He played 44 games the next season in Low A and was done. So his story about quitting when he became a father wasn't true as his daughter is 2.

where was the voting for Team America? I subscribed 2 days ago but never could find it.... Late last night I think I found it but can anyone confirm... Is it in the chat tool - where it has different tabs on top? One of them "vote"

On a side note. I see Frankie being too out outpoken/way too high energy.
The blue haired girl (his "counter part") seems a lot more level headed.

This is my first year paying for the live feed. can't wait.!

no subscription necessary, go to cbs.com/bigbrother and look under the "more" drop down for "team america vote".

the first round is closed, the second and third round will be opened for voting when jc announces on future shows.
