    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    Yaas! Just reading that the Jacks are on the block. BB could turn this season around if they give us a fun veto this week. Some kind of punishment comp where someone has to wear a unitard or make pies while kicking soccer balls. I want maximum humiliation. C’mon BB you owe us a break since we sat through 4 weeks of that depressing Camp Brownies.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    I need clarification on Christie’s power. So say Jack and Jackson are on the block, Jackson wins veto and Christie activates her power. Jackson become the beneficiary of the special veto, correct? But he is already off the block as he is using the regular veto. Can he also take Jack off the block and name both replacements? Or does he just take himself off the block (like he would have anyway) and name his own replacement? I assume it’s just the latter which is not all that great.

    I wish that the six shooters would stay aligned against the other six in the house and Kat would just swing back and forth between them. I don’t want them to all join up again. 😩

    I find the situation with Nick and Cliff confusing. Didn’t Nick say during his diary room on the broadcast show that Cliff is his target? Has he changed his mind?

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    It’s strange to go back and look at old episodes of Big Brother and see that houseguests didn’t always have these plastic surgery faces like they do now. Shannon actually looked so human compared to a HollyBeth and Kat. This is what I want the power given to the Camp Comebacker to be. In line with the previous powers given, this power should allow the winner to turn the house upside down. At eviction night, the winner would be able to assume the role of HOH. But instead of nominating 2 people for eviction, he/she would create an opposite event where the HOH and 2 people they select are safe but everyone else is eligible for eviction. The houseguests would then have to vote for each other without having time to strategize who they’re gonna pick. That would be real chaos and I’d love to see it!
  6. I figured they decided to put the couples in the same building because it saves on production time and cost. When they had to shoot each couple in each home throughout the city, the shooting schedule had to have spanned multiple days. At one point last season we saw Dr. Pepper counseling Kate on the phone while Dr.P ate dinner or something. The therapist don’t live in the cities the participants live in. They fly in for the shoot schedule. The crew must be driving for hours to get to each person’s house, especially when they live on opposite sides of the city. Then they have to set up cameras which takes an hour or so, then the counseling session. Then the individual pov reactions to the sessions. Then taking down the equipment. Then driving to the next location and doing it all over again. The therapists must be exhausted (as well as the crew). No wonder they look tired all the time. With them all in the same building, I imagine the shoot setup will be a lot easier. They may even try to use on nondescript apt for all the interviews. Regardless, there’ll be way less driving and scheduling conflicts. leading the therapists to be able to spend more time with the couples. And this may just be me, but, I live in an apartment building and I barely ever hang out with my neighbors. I don’t know why the couples would have to see each other. They may live on different floors and they go to work, so they may not even pass each other in the elevator.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    To me, the people in Camp Comeback should be trying to put together as much information as possible so they have a running start when they get back in the house. The only way this could hinder either David or Ovi is if the other outcast they are talking game with runs to the houseguests and makes them suspicious as the opponent re-enters the game by telling that houseguests that their rival comebacker was talking about them. But they’re gonna gun for the person coming back anyway. For example, let’s say David admits to the houseguests that Ovi told him he heard rumblings of an 8-person alliance. That would really only put a bigger target on David and Grateful would try even harder to keep him out. The comeback competitions are usually physical and I guess it could have some memory questions based on the comps they’re watching. Ovi sharing intel about potential alliances would in no way help David get back in instead of him. It just helps both of them once they get back in the game to be as informed as possible about their houseguests.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    I don’t have the feeds but it bugs me that Ovi hasn’t mentioned to David that he heard Nick talk about an 8-person alliance. Ovi didn’t get it, but I feel like if he mentioned it to David, David would get it because David has been focusing on figuring out who is working together. Come on Ovi, that is key information. Just start telling people.

    S21.E06: Whacktivity Competition #2; Nominations #2

    Crying at David incredulously telling Kat that there is an alliance running the house and Kat STILL not getting it. The stupid. It hurts. I never really got the Brett love, but I will say, he, Swaggy and the rest of the crew came off way more charismatic in the few seconds we saw them than this cast. Gr8ful just doesn’t have any panache. The only way I could see Jack’s power really benefiting him is if he actually does tell someone he has it (at the right time) and bluffs that it gives him a greater power - like the power to veto a nom after the veto ceremony or something. That way the lemmings will be even more afraid to nominate or backdoor him. Jack is turning out to be smarter than I thought he was, sigh. He really didn’t tell his douchebro he won. That means his common sense may actually be a bigger than his ego, double sigh.

    Oh yeah, her asking questions is fine. It’s just that she delivers her questions and statements with the enthusiasm of this

    S09.E04: Stranger Love in Paradise

    This is an unpopular opinion, but I kind of like that JaimeO interjects personal opinions about the situations (as long as she doesn’t go off on a tangent) because it leads the guests to speak more confidently about their opinions. Jaime is kooky and I guess the guests feel like, if she’s going to reveal embarrassing info, my stuff doesn’t sound so bad. In the case with Iris, Iris was giving her very polished answers until Jaime said how she felt for Iris because she would want her husband to hear it from her. Then Iris started opening up about if she had known Keith had known already she wouldn’t have been as nervous when she told him in the bedroom scene. She even said that after she told him he could have said his mom had mentioned something about it. Finding out from TV is awkward after you just worked 8 weeks on learning to trust the other person. That whole conversation is what prompted Dr. Pepper to ask her why she told the MIL in the first place. And the way Iris explained how it went down made sense and now I don’t think the producers expected Iris to do that. I think TPTB we’re gearing up for a big reveal with Keith and Iris blurted it out ahead of time because she was nervous and wanted reassurance.

    S09.E04: Stranger Love in Paradise

    Someone on Reddit pointed out that Amber is the true embodiment of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and now that’s all I think about when she launches into questions about Matt’s babies or his soft lips or other wide-eyed stalker proclamations. The experts need to stage an intervention. Speaking of Unfiltered, Iris said that watching their MAFS wedding was the first time she realized Keith’s mother had blabbed about her virginity. JaimeO was adamant that she would not have been okay with her husband saying he didn’t know and acting surprised. Iris admitted it bothered her because it took away her chance to see what Keith really thought because he already had a well-crafted response planned. I kind of agree with Iris and Jaime on this. Keith is too smooth and calculated with his responses in general. He’s used to schmoozing women to cultivate a false sense of intimacy and I don’t think one can operate that way in a marriage. When JaimeO was teasing Elizabeth about kissing/making out with husbandJaime so quickly, Liz admitted she had made out with a lot more strangers than Jaime, so the whole thing didn’t seem that awkward to her. Keith agreed. JaimeO tried to act fake appalled like she would never - which, we’ve seen her on The Bachelor so nobody’s buying it.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    It’s confusing that Jack’s whole aesthetics emulates a man who identifies as an ethnic minority. A man who is very famously married to a black woman. I wish Jason Momoa would denounce him and then it somehow get leaked to the house and Jack would have a crisis of conscience and start presenting himself like... whatever he was presenting himself as before Momoa. Nobody wants him ruining Aquaman for the masses. 😡

    S21.E05: Live Eviction #1; Head of Household #2

    I came to post the same thing! It’s like Jim Crow season on Big Brother. Now with segregation. The optics are gonna be jarring. The only silver lining is that Kemi is going to be there next and she’ll finally get to spend all that time with David that she wanted to.
  15. I think the reason that the American spouse usually files is because it costs money. The page I briefly looked at said it was something like $1000. http://pdximmigration.com/k1-fiance-visa-adjustment-of-status/ Also, the longer you wait after the 90 days, the more money you have to pay. https://citizenpath.com/faq/k-1-fiance-visa-adjust-status/ They really need to stop with the porn-style workout shots. She wasn’t even sweating. I don’t know what yoga abomination that was. The way they shoot Chantel doing everything is weird - long shots of her walking through a parking lot (in spandex), night shots of her curled up in bed (in spandex). Isn’t the target audience women?
