Oh, I agree...but I don't think it will happen. Not that he couldn't win two challenges

He doesn't have much of a story edit. If CBS gave him a little more airtime, then I would buy it. But I don't.

Here's how it looks -

Cochran - has a (major) redemption/proving storyline
Dawn - has a (major) emotional storyline
Erik - has a (minor) redemption storyline, he's too nice and I doubt they would let him get to F3
Eddie - has a (minor) lone wolf storyline
Sheiry - has no story whatsoever except turning on her original tribe

I can't believe the ending of Survivor was actually that obvious.

And what is this Blood on the Water stuff? Are they living on abandoned cruise ships in the middle of the water or something?

ETA: so yeah I read this wrong....it's "Blood vs Water" which is obviously a families reference. I guess they are putting family members on opposite tribes.

Big Brother starts this week. Looks like a longer season, and some changes:

- 16 houseguests
- three are nominated per week, instead of two
- viewers get to vote every week for MVP power

Not to mention that After Dark will be on TVGN, instead of Showtime. So that will probably be a very edited and watered down version of what it used to be.

I don't like the MVP power (whatever it is) and fan voting. Too much potential for CBS to edit certain people (their favorites) as being good/nice, and rigging the game. Kind of defeats the purpose of houseguests having to actually play and find things out for themselves, and make their own strategy. The audience should have no part in it.

In TAR, I was actually rooting for Max and Katie. The only place where they were really that annoying was when they were in Africa and complaining about the smelly people. They seemed like the smartest competitors. They also were Republicans Joking.

I think the only reason the hockey players won was because the race was more physically oriented then most.

A few days late, like I sometimes am when watching on DVR - I taped the first episode of Whodunnit? and just got around to watching it. I thought this would be a complete crapfest and had really low expectations...but I'm actually a little surprised. The show is like a big game of Clue with eliminations (and a little of The Mole mixed in). The death scenes are a bit overly dramatic, but I think I will probably keep watching this. It may turn out fun.

I haven't even watched the first episode of Big Brother yet (please no spoiling in my thread until I see or reference it!). I just haven't felt like it. Maybe I will tonight....probably not. I kind of like the idea of three being up for eviction, though.

Whodunnit - the second death and how it happened was way too easy to figure out. Need to step it up a little with the creativity The preview with the exploding golf cart looks pretty cheesy and hysterical. Unless they are totally hiding it, as of right now I do think it's Kam.

Alright, so I just watched the next two episodes of Big Brother (#3 and #4).

This post is probably going to need a language warning.

Fuck you, CBS.

Fuck both Rachel and Elissa. I hate both of these annoying ass women. I refused to believe that "America" liked Rachel, and I refuse to believe they like her clone-ass sister as well. The only reason that Rachel won Big Brother is because of blatant rigging of the game.

Fuck your "studio audience" full of fake, planted fans. The ones who cheered for votes that David got, and booed for voted that Elissa got. Give me a freaking break.

While the MVP/third nominee is a good idea in theory, it's just another way that the show is going to be rigged.

The recycling of reality show contestants (and family members) that happens is just eye-rolling. It's obviously a "stunt" and it has gotten past the point of OLD.

Stop it, CBS. Just....fucking stop it.

Big Brother - David is gone, and I don't mind that. He was pretty much a stereotype and admitted he wasn't even there to play the game but to make out with someone. Speaking of which...Aaryn - it's funny that she is stuck in there and don't even know that she's been dropped by her modeling firm for her racist and homophobic comments. CBS didn't show much of it, but there was the general idea (her and GinaMarie were both fired from their jobs). I guess they wanted to at least acknowledge it since it hit the mainstream press. I went to look for a link, and I see that Spencer is in trouble for this too.

Don't these people understand that people are watching them?

So Aaryn is HoH and put up Elissa and Helen for eviction. Not to be a big spoiler here in this thread (because I hate to)...but CBS - really? with the MVP again. Way to give one person a huge advantage before even going into the game. It pretty much ruins the twist in itself when it's given (or rigged, which I still think is true) and used to keep someone the network wants to be in there. I hope this ends this week.

I think the only one I actually like this season are Howard, McCrae, and Andy. Maybe Candice. I think Nick is a Dan (from previous seasons) wannabe. I really wanted to like Jessie, but then she opened her mouth and ruined it...not to mention the whole clingy thing. The rest of these losers can pretty much GTFO. It's going to take a lot of convincing (and not from CBS's watered down handpicked highlights) to change my mind at this point.

Whodunnit - the death was pretty cheesy (Adrianna), but the actual case wasn't that bad. I would seriously love to be on this show (chances are it won't be around for very long though) because it looks like a lot of fun. I hate the way they have the "Scared" people always show up at the crime scene last, though. More TV production corniness. I do love the "clues" and how they are directly related to the case....golf ball for the exploding golf cart. I also love the fact that only one person (or group) can find the "last clue" before the bell rings and the investigation is done.

Don's death scene at the end is hilarrrrriously ridiculous. Secret passage in the kitchen, and a wild cat mauling him.

I still think it's Kam. I'm probably wrong though.

Big Brother - I swear, this show is as annoying as a freaking ingrown hair...but I can't stop watching it. There are very few actually good people here.

Flipping someone's mattress? Give me a break. Grow the fuck up.

Whodunnit - okay, so I don't understand the point of the mountain lion if it wasn't involved in the actual death. Maybe that was supposed to be insurance - it was actually a big misdirection (or getting rid of the steak evidence). This was an interesting one, with the cyanide gas.

So may pick, Kam, got Scared...still not ready to write him off. I did see hints of it being Sasha in this episode, though. She acted kind of weird at certain points.

Can we just evict everyone next week on Big Brother and end the season?

All of these people suck.

My three biggest obsessions at the moment are: Whodunnit, Big Brother, and The Challenge: Rivals II. Mostly Whodunnit though! Such a great show.
