    This is turning out to be a great season...

    Man, Rockstar is a hot mess...

    I love the execution of the hacker competition... I am not sure exactly how I feel about how much power the hacker gets, but I loved the houseguests in separate rooms, not knowing how anyone else is doing and who the winner is. I love the looks on their faces when they find out that they lost a round... Hilarious!!!

    I am pretty surprised that Haleigh noticed Tyler playing both sides... Good for her... I didn't know she was that aware of the overall social dynamics in the house... Everyone seems to think that Tyler is their ride-or-die!!! LOL...

    Is it racist or prejudiced to have the hacker speak in a Russian accent? Given all of the political correctness these days, my daughter and I were debating on whether this would be considered an act of racism...

    I sucked at the hacker game. I think I only got 1 word right.

    Sam makes me laugh. She actually seemed to think her plan of them throwing the comp made sense. She is no Nakomis.

    The hacker has a uuuuge amount of power.

    They can remove a nominee and replace them with someone of their choice.

    They can choose someone to play in the Veto contest.

    And they can nullify a house guests eviction vote.

    That last power is pretty huge. By Thursday, it's mostly a done deal who is voting for who. It's like having two votes!

    I love the anonymous stuff because it gives people the freedom to nominate who they want without the pushback from the house or their alliances. It makes things much more interesting to have some secret stuff happening without anyone knowing.

    I thought the hacker should be able to choose one of the powers, not just get all three! I think that's a bit unbalancing.

    I was surprised at Haleigh figuring out Tyler too... if anyone I would expect Bayleigh (but she's too busy being Queen Bey).

    I got all but two of the words, but I'm sitting at home in my jammies with the only pressure being if I fall asleep before the end of the show. :)

    I kind of like it... It's different, certainly...

    But in most cases, I think actions should have consequences... Want a big target up on the block? You need to deal with the blood on your hands, or figure a way to "spin" it... It'll be interesting to see how this completely anonymous model works out...

    BTW, forgot to mention that I not only like Tyler's game play... Brett seems to be stepping it up too... I love his eviction speech, and love the backstory of his conversation with Angela before the vote... Good stuff... This is turning out to be a pretty good season...

    I liked the hacker challenge, and I think it's a great way to mix up the game, but I agree that it's too much power for one person to have. Just one of those three things would have been a huge advantage. To give them all three hardly seems fair.
    I don't think it was racist. They were clearly trying to parody the idea that Russia hacked our election.

    So, it is jingoism, and not racism?

    I don't know what to think about JC. He kinda seems like a bully. He comes in and call the guys "hey girls", he continually puts down Fessy, he's lying to everybody. But because he's funny and short he gets a pass?

    But, how long will it be till she starts telling "just one person" and pretty soon everyon will know, or at least suspect?

    Why do they keep trying to get Scotty in trouble? He seems to be the guy everyone wants to pass their own guilt off on. Of course they took him off the block, and he is the guy you would expect to do well in the challenge.

    I really was hoping that one of them who wanted to blindside Bay would win. :(

    I'm kind of glad Hayleigh won the hacking comp. Her and Fessy are probably the two most likable people left in the house.

    In front of...
    WTG Hayleigh! Finally someone it seems like I can cheer for in this game.

    Shaping up to be an excellent season, even with Kaitlyn gone.

    JC in that hat reminds me of Paddington Bear. I laugh everytime I see him.

    I can't believe Rockstar just sat there - when Bay told her to shut up! Wow!

    I agree - the Hacker spin has too much power.

    But- making for a GREAT season!

    I don't like Brett, but spelling "Anal Lice" and then laughing about it was hilarious.
