I still don't get how people don't realize their surrounding/forum (ie. live TV, facebook, etc) and post/say stuff that will come back to bite them. And then they'll cry about it.

So far, it looks like CBS is making Jeremy look a little better than he actually is. In live feeds he's a huge tool.

Is this what it was like when Frank and Boogie was in the house last season?

Just imagine the surprise they'll have when they leave BB. Aaryn thinks she's America's princess (that's yet to win multiple MVPs, as chosen by the public). Gina thinks she's the coolest chick in NYC. Here's some Gina quotes:

I mean, I'll just paste 1 here. :face:

- Joking about how a punch in the face could make Asian-American player Helen’s eyes straight.

Yeah, well, they would insult Dan and Janelle and others like that, though not going racist. Just hatred-fueled. Mostly behind their back, but right at the camera. And there was that one incident where they did that right in Dan's face and all he could do is just lay on the couch, read his Bible, and take it. I would have gotten up and kicked them both in their face.

Aaryn getting ready for tonight's show a little while ago. I expect her to fly into full rage mode when they kick out her boy-toy David tonight.

Futurama, still consistently funny. So sad it just couldn't get a solid following.

It has a following, unfortunately it is on Netflix. Also, Comedy Central liked to move its time slot around. Combine these things and it gets artificially low ratings.

Watched the first episode of Ray Donovan. Unsure but will probably give it a couple more episodes before making any final decisions.

These BB houseguests are brutal. That racist/homophobic stuff is incredible.

That said, Kaitlin is a mega babe.

Right now my favorite is Nick, but I also like Mccrae, Amanda, and Elissa.

Aaryn used to be sexy to me, but after hearing her talk I want to kick her. Jeremy is your typical dee bag, and enjoys hanging his hat on being part Cherokee. Helen is nice but she'll just be another one of those stupid older people that stay around longer than they should just because they're old even though they suck at the game. Then there's Jessie who thinks shes pretty but she's mediocre on a good day.

You're absolutely right about everything, Mr. Colby. Though I gottah admit Jessie looks great in a bikini.

I was thinking CBS was going to swipe the racist remarks under the rug, but they went all out in tonight's episode. It's hilarious Aaryn thought she was going to be the MVP at some point, and all the other houseguests knew she was going to be portrayed in a bad light.

Respect to CBS for showing a collection of Aaryn's remarks.

Brutal cast is right. Too many young people, I think. They needed to add some older people like Shelly Moore. A bit crazy in a way, but a very intelligent woman who could talk about topics other than whatever crap is going on in that house. In the past, they had guests who were more mature and more experienced in life and it was fun listening to them. This cast is like a bad 90201 episode. Having said that, there are some real characters and at some point I think it will blow up.

I'll add that I hate seeing the same thing again this year... girls' inability to get together and form an all-girl alliance. They have such an opportunity too, since Elissa is really liked (public) and keeps getting the MVP (she got it again) and with that they could have decimated the guys. But nope, 4 of them went boy-crazy (Kaitlin, Aaryn, Amanda, Jessie [can't get a dude, but keeps trying]).

Now Spencer is at risk of losing his job.

watched the first Under the Dome epsidoe last night. Truly terrible. It seems to be a bad show from the 90s that was just found and aired today. If it was a miniseries, I might be able to get through 5 episodes, but they better wrap it up fast, because there is no way it's getting past 1 season. Acting, writing, and characters are all beyond stupid. With that said, it might be my favorite new show to make fun of and I do have some interest to see what's up with the dome (easily the best character in the show), but I have a feeling after the 2nd episode, I'll just check out wikipedia and see what happens in the book.

I always loved Futrama, but then when it was initially cancelled, and then came back, I just never knew when it was on. I catch reruns every so often though, but just couldn't watch the new ones consistently.

With BB, I agree with you that this years cast is too young overall IMO. I like when there is a mix, brings a different dynamic to the cast and you get many different views. When everyone is young, all you get is people wanting to hook up and complete drama in the tyical overused reality sense.

Aaryn and Jeremy are two I want out of there, but I guess you need the "bad guy".

I'm glad CBS called out the racism stuff though instead of ignorning it. Those few houseguest got a complete suprise when they come out of the house jobless.
