    It's interesting how we have different opinions of who is the worst to watch of who they brought back.

    I was close to giving up on BB in the first 15 minutes until Rachel and Brendon walked in.

    On the other hand -
    Evil Dick is not worth wasting my time on.

    Other than hoping he goes quick - I will be fast forwarding him and whatever abuse he starts into.

    The other couple - I missed that year so they are like new houseguests to me :)

    Watching Rachel is like I imagine waterboarding is. As soon as they showed her in the Diary Room saying (paraphrasing) "I'm back B*tches!" I wanted to puke. She alone is enough for me to tune out. Adding ED and his sickly looking daughter was just icing on the cake.

    I wish BB (and Survivor) would stop with bringing back former contestants.

    You had to know that the new folks would team up and kick out the returning folks. It's gonna be a bit boring the first few weeks imo.

    I like this because there are less new faces to learn. And while I can't stand Rachael's laugh, the rest of her is ok. She is a good player. Jordan is just the opposite--she's a terrible player but I like her because she's so nice. Evil Dick and Danielle have no redeaming qualities. :( Boogie and Will must be about 60 by now--no wonder they didn't want to do it.

    I like the quieter girl--Cassie, I think. Can't stand the loud black guy with the weird suit. Funny how all the newbies lied about their jobs. ;)

    Also interesting how no one had the balls to refuse to be anyone's partner so they mostly ended up where they didn't want to be. Should make it easier to try to get rid of your partner when they're put up.

    Heavy metal guy is annoying.
    And the black guy with the big forehead (fivehead?) is annoying too.

    LOL. Yeah pretty much this. I hate Rachel. Every time she laughs I just want to punch my TV 4 or 5 times in the face. Doesn't mean I won't watch every single episode. ;)

    I realize they have over 100 cameras to replace, but seriously... Low Def just cheapens the whole experience at this point and it makes it look like the Network isn't backing it. It's 2011. It's time BB. Put some money back in the show please... I mean there can't be that many Network shows left in SD are there? I hate America's Next Top Model for the same reason. Tyra is a known money grubber and non techie, so I'm not holding my breath for that show, but I thought for sure by this year they'd have sprung for some HD cameras on BB. :p

    The part that gets me is that I know they have at least one HD camera since the monitor next to Julie is HD. They just won't let us have the HD feed.

    Here's some of what you didn't see on TV:

    ' Outside the door to the house, cocktail waitress Rachel Reilly and graduate student Brendon Villegas, who met last summer during season 12 and later became engaged, shared a quiet moment together as they waited to enter the not-so-private abode. "Don't be nervous," Brendon told her as they stood outside the door. "I'm not nervous," Rachel retorted.

    ' Among the declarations sputtered by outspoken season-eight winner Richard "Evel Dick" Donato after he returned to the house with his estranged daughter Danielle Donato was that he was proud of CBS for casting three black contestants. He also told the other houseguests that the producers only called him on the previous Sunday to invite him to play "Big Brother" again.

    ' As the cast settled into the house, crew members were busy constructing the setting for the first Head of Household competition in the backyard: a makeshift jungle composed of leafy plants and big hanging bananas that were greased up by the crew. The back door was closed, which prompted the houseguests to speculate what workout equipment would be outside.

    ' The houseguests usually did not shut up. Throughout the evening, they typically congregated in one large group in the kitchen and engaged in multiple introductory conversations, making it difficult to decipher what everyone was saying to each other. "The first hour in the 'Big Brother'house is the best hour," exclaimed season 11 veteran Jeff Schroeder.

    ' The mood was surprisingly calm upstairs in the control room as a director monitored the action from more than 50 cameras. Staff transcribed the cast's conversations, while a producer in a booth interviewed partners Keith Henderson and Porsche Briggs, who were downstairs in the Diary Room. It was one of their first interactions outside the house.

    ' At one point in the backyard, co-executive producer Don Wollman surveyed the Head of Household preparation before he was interrupted by his own booming voice: "Houseguests, you are not allowed to talk about production." It's one of the prerecorded messages the cast will hear throughout the summer. He grinned and joked, "I'm already annoyed of that voice."

    ' Shelly Moore, the oldest newbie contestant at age 41, was the most star struck when the veteran couples were revealed. "It's like TV come to life!" she squealed before enthusiastically asking several of the seasoned players about what their "Big Brother" experiences were really like and what happened in their lives after leaving the show.

    ' The houseguests were already concocting conspiracy theories on their first night. Lawon Exum told partner Kalia Booker and part-time model Dominic Briones that he believed Porsche was actually Shelly's daughter. Several others besides Schroeder speculated that Dick and Danielle were no longer estranged but actually working closely together to win again.

    ' When it came time to change into color-coded uniforms for the first Head of Household competition, most of the contestants did not have any inhibitions about changing in front of the cameras - or each other. In the back bedroom, Dick instructed the male houseguests how to change clothes in the corner so that the cameras wouldn't capture their genitals.

    ' During the first Head of Household competition, the row of cameramen filming the houseguests hanging onto those giant bananas from behind a one-way mirror were as talkative as fans sitting on their couches at home. "Rachel's a tough chick," said one cameraman as the competitors dropped. The cast couldn't hear the chatter though. The wall is soundproof.

    ' After host Julie Chen revealed that the first four partners of evicted players would receive a Golden Key and be safe from elimination until the Top 10, a producer came over the speakers and explained how the twist would work in detail. When the cast queried how it would affect the Power of Veto, he told them that they would learn about it later.

    Watched the whole episode in about 8 minutes. For the first time, I won't be watching anymore. Didn't like any of the returning, and don't like any of the new. Sayonara BB.

    Granted, you didn't mention the contestant's name, but this is still considered a spoiler. Please use the spoiler tags.

    I would say "or put it in the spoiler thread", but it has already been mentioned there.

    But, in the future things like this should go in the spoiler thread.
