    Must have been all those cookies and chocolate milk his mommy was serving him.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    I don't think they had much of an advantage at all. They knew who each other were, but they weren't friends or anything. In fact, whoever she was involved with ended badly, so their connection was dubious at best. Their decision to work together isn't much different than any 2 strangers entering the house and deciding the same thing.
  3. I don't think the vast majority of women who do that are doing it intentionally. Some do, obviously, for effect, but I think it's actually just a natural resting place for lot of women's voices. It's one of those things that once you learn about it, you hear it everywhere, but something you never noticed until someone points it out. It appears to be far more common in women than men. But I think there is a measure of sexism when it comes to "vocal fry" because nobody ever complains when men talk that way (in fact they tend to get complimented on their "sexy" voices when they do that - Bradley Cooper talks that way all the time) but when women do it, they are scorned for it. At any rate I would expect someone casting a commercial to disqualify an actor who did that, but I guess that just shows a lot of people aren't aware of it, and don't notice it, until someone points it out to them.

    OH - so the attorney sister was not in on it? (I'm so lost.) I'm always up for a good Clyde reference, but if I'm honest, neither Joan nor Sherlock strike me as the type who would be really chatty with their mailman about their pet turtle. Or about much of anything, for that matter.

    Match Game

    Same here. I was really drawing a blank on that one until Mario said "loud." I felt for the winner in the first half because there were two equally definitive answers to "Tug:" either "of war" or "boat." I would have been torn and it was just a coin flip which one he'd go with.

    Yeah, this isn't really a "custody battle" type of show. It's more of a "murder someone to get what you want" kind of show.

    All of the "Wacktivity" powers were pretty toothless. I'd say offhand Ovi's power was probably the one with the best chance of shaking things up, even though it would have been tough to use to save himself since it had to be used right after nominations and so many evictions are a result of backdooring. Jack's power is pretty damn useless - force a re-draw for Veto play? Who cares? That's almost laughable, like they literally could not think of any other power. I'd say the best case scenario for Christie's power if she herself is not the Veto holder would be if that person was someone in her alliance and they were able to work together. Like if Tommy won Veto she could turn it into the Diamond Veto and they could target whoever they want. But here again all the pieces have to line up just so. There would have to be a situation where they actually wanted to change the nominee, for example, and where the HoH wasn't willing to put up whoever they wanted as a replacement. That's a lot of ifs. So yeah, it's a shitty power. It was fairly amusing watching them crow about it in the DR pretending it could change the whole game.

    Thanks for the explanation. I was following this pretty well but by the time we got to the actual perp I couldn't figure out how he knew about the victim and her dogs. So his sister was in on it, right? This is sort of a trope usually seen in cartoons - distracting dogs with a steak. A box of Milkbone Dog Biscuits would be just as effective and far cheaper (assuming one steak per dog, in this case). I spent the entire scene agonizing over where I'd seen him before.

    S21.E11: Live Eviction #3; Battle Back #1

    That's what I'm wondering. Clearly Nick and Bella aren't that bright. How easy will it be for the "six-shooters" to snow them all over again? They are already predisposed to believing whatever they're told. It would be funny if it turned out that Cliff was some kind of stealth challenge beast, but if that were the case why did he fail to win Veto both times he was on the block? I guess at the very least we now know his skill set. First Christie blabs to Nick and Bella about her power and then she decides she wants to blindside them in the vote. WTF. She is all over the map.

    I can't decide if Mia's revelation about Baz was a last ditch effort to swing J over to her side, or if it was just something she spat out to hurt him once she realized he was going to kill her and she wasn't going to talk her way out of it. Maybe a little of both. I don't think it's either. I mean I suppose it's possible, but what on earth is she doing with that gigantic arsenal of illegal weapons (they all had their serial numbers filed off)? Surely she's not planning to use them as currency since she has ready access to actual cash. The only thing I can think of is that she plans on planting them on someone. The last thing we heard her say is that she would be back in a few days, after demanding Andre cough up the name of whoever's been talking to the cops. Clearly she expects to return home, and we know she has it out for Detective Pierce.

    S21.E10: Power of Veto #3

    Eh, not really. At this point it seems like a given that Nick and Bella will be the first 2 to go. I suppose that will seem somewhat satisfying in light of this most recent episode but we've got a LONG way to go. They're both idiots, not that they are unique in that regard. Regardless of whether or not Nicole was telling the truth about Michey saying he wanted them to go on the block, what is the point of confronting him about it? Did they honestly expect anyone to admit to such a thing if it were true? How dumb are they? Maybe you just sit on that info and keep it in your back pocket. She could be less scattered and zero in on one point to make. The same goes for Bella and, last week, Kemi. All they are doing is a verbal equivalent of stream of consciousness. They just blather without ever making a coherent point. In this particular case: "I did not cal you bullies. Who told you that?" Period. Put the question back on Bella and say nothing further.

    S21.E10: Power of Veto #3

    It's at this point where I get really frustrated by how stupid all of these people are. I know BB isn't known for casting geniuses but they've really scraped the bottom of the barrel this year. I said this last week about the fight between Bella and Kemi and it applies again to the fight between Bella and Nicole. It's hard to take sides because neither one is making a cohesive point. All they seem able to do is blather, rant and insult. Both are unable to express any kind of complete thought. For example, Nicole was kind of circling the point of saying it was a lie she said they were bullies but she never managed to articulate it in any meaningful way. So these fights the show thinks are so entertaining are just irritating and useless. And what is wrong with Jessica? Is she just a complete moron or what? This is the second time she picked someone to play Veto who is clearly in a majority alliance against her. When nine HGs are holed up in the HoH and aren't letting anyone else into the room, just do the math. I got a kick out of the fact that everyone is forced to called Jackson "Michey" but apparently the show is too cheap to rename his chips in the Veto draw bag so they still read "Jackson." Not to defend Jack, by any stretch, but I'm not exactly sure what Jack was supposed to say in that moment because Ovi was being really obtuse. Ovi is another one that has no idea how to express himself, I don't even know what he thought he was accomplishing by going upstairs and talking through the door to the HoH either. He just kind of blathers incoherently without saying anything - how are you supposed to reply to that?

    She might have more to do if they weren't wasting half this season on these pointless and tedious flashbacks. I think Craig thought she was already dead.

    Well, you wanted something like "rain" or at least something that rhymed like "pain." My own answer would have been "shitstorm" but I wouldn't have been able to say it on TV. I also thought the definitive answer to the "smart looking suit" wold have been "smarties," but I guess I'm showing my age. "Smart phone" didn't even occur to me. I think they went to Madame Tussauds and borrowed the wax figure of Wayne Newton.

    Mine too. Mainly because I really didn't know whether or not J would pull the trigger until that moment. And even then, wasn't sure he'd really done it until he and Pete went back inside and we saw two pairs of feet.
