    I hope all the Dick-naysayers are eating their words. He's coming off more and more as a stand-up guy who's desperately trying to be a good dad to his daughter. The clip of them on the hammock had me choking up. Regardless of his *******ishness personality when it comes to confrontations (which may be a result of playing the game in the house), he's a loyal guy.

    Meanwhile I saw Dick basically browbeat the people he percieves as enemies. He is lowly thug nothing more. He uses threats to get his way.

    What we're seeing of Dick is just his gameplay. People choose to play the game in different ways. Some people play by lying and keeping secrets. Dick plays it by exposing everyone elses lies and secrets.

    He may be a huge ass in real life. Or this may be the way he's playing the game. I don't know. But I can see the dad in him trying to (re)connect with his daughter.

    Completely agree.
    Tonight's episode was all in the editing. The producers wanted to play up their season twist. If you are watching the After Dark broadcasts you'd see the real Evil Dick who is both evil and a dick. Lowly thug is right.

    And what was with Nick's top 5?
    That happened like 10 days ago...

    Evil Dick is the best part of this season -- without him in the house, this becomes one of the most boring seasons of Big Brother.

    I love how he calls people out on their lies -- it makes for highly entertaining TV.

    And I agree with Indy -- the guy is taking advantage of the fact that he is now stuck in a house with his daughter and using it as an opportunity to reconnect and mend his strained relationship with her. And for that, I commend him.

    One person may see Dick as an arrogant jerk -- I see him as a straight-shooter who has decided to play this game by calling other people out on their lies or their behavior -- no matter what the consequences.

    Evil Dick is this season's Eric, aka Cappy. Either you love him or you hate him.

    I don't like Evil Dick at all. While it's nice that he's reconnecting with Danielle, I don't think he's a stand up guy. I'm with Cainebj. If you've seen/heard some of the things that he's said (and haven't made it on the CBS show), you'd be shocked.

    Without giving away spoilers, what things has he said?

    Personally I like Evil Dick, but I'm interested to know?

    (I haven't been watching the eps that closely... just as background noise.)
    I don't think Evil Dick's strategy of calling people out and being such a straight shooter is going to work.

    Although it seems logical to put up Kail and Jen, I don't think Kail's a big threat seeing as how her alliance betrayed her last week. I can totally agree w/getting rid of Jen but maybe he should've backdoored her.

    Kail: "When they announced the vote was 9-1, I knew immediately that it was me." Duh!

    Jen: "Since I haven't been on slop, I really don't feel bad for the people that are on it. I suck at that - feeling bad thing."

    Jessica: "We got sweetbreads. Donuts, cornbread, and any kind of bread that tastes good that's not like normal bread." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    I wonder what trauma lies in Jen's past that has shut off her emotional switch?

    It seems that no matter what is going on around her, she wears that same vacant smile. Weird!

    I think it's safe to say that she doesn't have a heart. Just totally devoid of compassion, and very happy to be that way.

    Which makes me wonder how stupid someone has to be to hire her as a nanny.

    I still don't like Dick. I understand that he is trying to reconnect with his kid, but he treats everyone else like crap. Mind you, some of them deserve it, but I find him overall to be very unpleasant.

    I am disliking Kail more and more every week.

    And I seriously think Jen is suffering from a psychological disorder. Someone who is incapable of empathy, completely oblivious to the impact her words and actions have on others and is only completely tuned in to her own wants and needs has to be some kind of sickness. I seriously wonder WTF is wrong with her....

    I'm thinking molestation or long-term exposure to viciously fighting parents.

    who knows the real Dick - we're only seeing what CBA wants us to see. I thought the scene with his daughter was touching but was that the real Dick or ED playing for the cameras. I would have like to have evesdropped the that talk with out the cameras present and then see how he did.

    You've never heard of sweetbreads? Really?

    I've never heard pastry referred to as sweetbread.
