But it is a much better story

This was my first thought. And the one who has 3 kids who are the most important part of her life. It's not like BB is a week or 2.

Thanks Realityboy. I am surprised the rail guy last year lost job, on what grounds? With the union and all I never thought they could fire someone for thought control while off duty.

I hope the next group of contestants offer more substance than this 1st group. I've watched every previous episode & am just not impressed yet.
I'm hoping the new twists make it more interesting. Before the HOH knew they were invincible for their week & this year should shake things up.

I bet it was the drug use that did him in. He admitted to using on the job and had been sent to rehab by the union before.

Hope she doesn't end up being a nasty beotch.

Thanks Realityboy, I had forgot drug use had come up. Yes, admitting to it on TV not very smart when operating that, and I had never read about the rehab time. I sure wish media would report the important stuff like someone operating a train impaired, instead of oh my he made a slur....

I must be watching the same show as you b/c I've found only a few people likeable.

I'm finding most of them ok so far. They seem like genuinely nice people, but feeds have only been on for a few hours. (Sure some are grating, but it's slightly fewer than normal).

It seems Donny is the target this week. They don't believe he's a custodian. They think he might be a professor.

I hope Donny sticks around. I'm okay with the backdoor Joey plan. If that is a real plan.

I'm ok with that, but I don't know how serious it is. I think Devin could end up getting backdoored if he keeps irritating everyone. Or if he flirts with Amber.

Is Joey the blue hair girl? I like her so far and don't want her to go just yet.

Yes.

So yea, Frankie can be a replacement nom now. With the new twist I guess he's no longer a co-HoH. just a standard member like everyone else.

I'm sure it will be clearer once the broadcast a full week.

I was not impressed when they showed a minute or two before the houseguests knew the live show was about to start. They were all sitting around like normal people but the second they thought BB after dark started some of them started trying to be the center of attention by being the loudest or most outrageous. Like the guy that was naked except for his hat that he held over his crotch. Him repeatedly asking if they were live yet made him that much more annoying.

Yep, they certainly knew they'd be going live running all around the house screaming at the cameras. But this is also the first live show and they've probably been in there a week or so? So I guess I can understand them being excited for the first show and I'd assume it won't be so "exciting" every night.

it's too early for me to really say whether or not i like or dislike any hg, but i've come to a few early conclusions:
  • i don't want donny or joey gone so early, so i hope donny wins the veto, and joey isn't the renom. i like pow pow enough, but would rather see her go over joey or donny at this point in the game.
  • zach, devin, caleb, and jacosta are all beginning to get on my nerves (and devin seems to be getting on several hg's nerves) - any of them would be great renoms if the veto is used.

I don't want either Donny or Joey to go yet, either. I don't watch live feeds - just love to read about them sometimes and see people's reactions. So, why is Devin getting on people's nerves already?

Why isn't Zach already halfway out the door? Talk about a d-nozzle. If he was like that on the show, it's got to be worse live, right?

I'm okay with Pao leaving... doubt the BB staff are ready to let go of all her potential drama, though.

the only concrete criticism i've heard levied was about him getting upset after giving up a bed and comforter to allow the ladie's to sleep together. he was upset they supposedly took the last of the clean sheets, too. rather than sleep on dirty sheets in his own bed, he went to the have not room to look for a place to rest (he isn't a have not). he has also been talking game like he was in charge - hoh himself - designating what should be done, when he has no power. kind of condescending.

one hg described him as "bipolar" (not a medical diagnosis, just an opinion). i'm thinking he's just getting adjusted to living with 15 other varied personalities (and their personal habits), and he seems to be apologetic, but has already rubbed a few hg the wrong way.

yea watching/listening to the feed someone mentioned they have been in the house now for 8 days, and how their DR sessions are now going to be more about current events, not things that happened days ago.

The staged "are we live now" was cute - as they were all frozen - as if the video feed was paused. A bit amusing, but then with Hayden walking around with the hat goofin', and then Joey doing her thing. Maybe Joey just wanted to get it out there as to not worry as much when changing in the future? shrug I dunno. Her personality isn't shy one bit, and it's certainly not an act.

I would expect Zack to be halfway out the door too, evidently he's been sleeping like 80% of the time. Goes to bed early, sleeps late. and then lounges around all day not doing much.

I see Devin playing WAY too hard, way to early and rubbing people the wrong way.
