    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    The other thing about a penalty nom is that I'd be curious about the potential domino effect if Jackson's officially on notice about eating more substantive food. This week it wouldn't matter if he's on the block because they have the votes to get rid of Bella regardless, but what about the next time he's due to go on slop? Does he try to weasel out of it, and if so, how does it affect his relationships with the others? Does he disregard it and just live with being on the block? Does he flip out and go all MICHIE SMASH? There could be interesting consequences from this, if only TPTB didn't have such selective double standards.

    Depends on whether the violator is favored by production or not. Well, if Matt Cline is any indication, it's probably more accurate to say whether they give any shit whatsoever.

    Masterchef (US)

    I do too, but that's just my residual high school French showing. I don't think any of the Americans I've known named Renee (or Rene) really use the accent aigu, and I feel like a lot of people just don't know how to make diacritics on keyboards. Which is annoying with a word like résumé, but outside of professional or academic writing, it doesn't seem like a big deal here, generally. IME/MMV. Anyway, add me to the list of Keturah fans. I was hoping she'd buck the montage curse, but alas. Meanwhile, except for Kenny going out early, everybody whose full audition was shown is still in play—now that we're down by a third, here's an updated scorecard: Audition unseen: Bri, Renee, Wuta Audition featured in a montage: Jamie, Nick, Sam Battle round: Micah Full audition shown: Dorian, Fred, Noah, Sarah, Shari, Subha No way Subha wins with that edit. They've shown Dorian's uglier side but I wouldn't say she's 100% out of the running...yet. Septic Burger hasn't always been shown in the best light, though I think his chances are still better than Dorian's. Micah feels to me like the traditional "goes out in fourth but gets a fantastic career/educational opportunity from Gordon" contestant. Which leaves Fred, Sarah, and Shari. It could be worse? At least Glitterboots is very unlikely to win.

    I've been one of those who's been in favor of doing away with Have Nots for the last few years...but the prospect of Camp Comeback being recycled as the Have Not room and Jackson landing there is making me seriously reconsider that position. Putting him on slop could be like throwing a much-needed time bomb in the house.

    OTOH, every once in a while: Clown Shoe. Or Kaitlyn's Puzzle.

    This is a thing? I missed out on Chinese camp?!? [stamps foot, pouts] I mean...that's a BB tradition going back at least as far as April and Ollie.

    If I only I had the disposable income to fly a banner over the house informing these hamsters that people on the internet are having more interesting discussions about WWII history than anything that they're doing.

    Probably too much to hope for another Overwhelming No moment, but anything that amounts to a fuck-you to the Jacks, I'm down.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    I was thinking about this earlier. Maybe I'm just out of fucks at this point—Day 18!—but I was considering the idea that I actually might be okay with the Jackoffs trading HoH back and forth, getting all the POCs into Camp Internment, and running away with the season altogether. I doubt it'll affect the ratings or force change at the top—if they got out of BB15 unscathed, they'll do it again—but at least let TPTB spend a couple of months sweating the optics and negative PR on top of a cast that was dull and unlikable to begin. And then maybe I can finally give up my dumb annual addiction and go play outside all summer instead. Of course, then I remember how Paulie Calafiore ate the entire show for like eight weeks and didn't have it work out so well for him, so...

    Aw, come on, Kat, somebody's gotta break Spencer's record eventually, and you're not likely to accomplish much else in this game. I know it's still early days, but I keep thinking this season is some kind of payback from the universe for people who complained about last year being boring. Like, "Oh, was Level 6 too Kumbaya for you? Here, have a replay of BB19 with distinct overtones of BB15." I mean, I watched Boogie win, I sat through Dick's shenanigans, I endured Aaryn and Frankie and Paul, but it's Day 16 and I'm already questioning my decisions here.

    I have trouble believing anyone other than Ovi's mother has ever called him a cool kid. And she probably only did it to be nice.

    Camp Other. Yeah, but Rachel's win took some of the most overt and bullshittiest rigging Grodner's ever pulled; Dani's alliance had the remaining veterans on the ropes once Jeff got clown-shoed. Well, Shelly might've cracked and gone back to kissing the vets' asses either way, but it was looking real good for a minute.

    Well, dammit. I was gonna say there's still hope with the second Whacktivity, but I believe both Jackoffs are signed up for that.

    A producer twist could be for naught? Inconceivable! If this means a whole 'nother season of things constantly going sideways for TPTB, I'm here for it. And if Ovi does happen to go, that'll rank right up there with Annie the Saboteur being the first out by unanimous vote in BB12.

    Dear Ovi: The hygiene standards may be a bit more lax on Survivor but I don't think withholding rice is gonna work out for you any better than the cookies did here. Also, Probst will never shut up about how much you suck at challenges. Nothing will make up for the shitstain that was BB15, but GM almost redeemed herself with that smackdown of Amanda. Why couldn't we have more of that Gina Marie and less of the Chapstick Stalker?
