She scared the crap out of Dina - she didn't know what to do. I just kept my eyes on her the whole time.

Hah! That's how she sounded to me. 'DINA! I keep TELLING you. DON'T put your paddle down until I TELL you to!'

(ferchrisake!).

If they need more time for the 'live stuff' on a 'live show', then cut out the filler crap and repeats of things we've already seen.

Personally, I look most forward to seeing the live shows. To have them always seem rushed kinda pisses me off.

These celebs are much harder to round up because they have to keep being instructed on what to do. She was just trying to get stuff done and on time.

So why complain when a celeb has gotten the idea and does the right thing at the right time without being told?

Who's complaining about those people? We're discussing Julie's attitude towards those who didn't.

Or cut out half the commercials.  I had this episode set to record on my DVR, and the DVR had different plans.  So, I ended up watching it online, it said at the CBS website  that the episode itself ran without commercials 1:27:43. 

It wasn't put up On Demand until today (Friday).

If my math is write, and I have to take off my socks and shoes to check, more than 25% of the two hours were spent on commercials alone.  I think they shoved a heck of a lot more commercials in the online version, because it felt like I was watching this thing for at least  2 1/2 hours.  Online there is showtime and commercial time.  They are separate.

So, I was already annoyed after watching this thing, and the way the show played out pissed me off even more.

I was referring to Julie complaining to contestants about putting their paddles down after the round was clearly done and tallied, but before she said so. She should have been happy they were resetting for the next round promptly, as it helped make up the time spent waffling on their answers (which is nothing new).

I don't think it's necessarily Julie just being nit-picky.  I've always assumed that there's someone off camera who keeps track of the score and they want the houseguests to keep their answers up until they've been "officially" recorded and Julie gets the go-ahead to proceed.

 I was concerned this season might lead me to swear off BB, but I think at least one more season may be necessary - if for no other reason than to get the taste of THIS shitshow out of my mouth.

Oh, you know you'll watch BB and CBB until the end of time  This from one Nashvillian to another.

I dunno. Maybe it's just me.

True, Julie has always been more 'firm', shall we say, during live competitions and interviews. I'm sure there are always producers in her earpiece saying something like, 'Move it along!'

But this season, rather than seeming as if she was losing power, she seemed to be Wielding it more. She just seemed more rude in her admonitions. 

Herding cats can take a lot out of you - especially when the HGs keep making the same mistakes over and over and over and over and over again....  ;>

I was so hoping that one of the house guests would have told Julie to  "Stuff it".  I would have given that house guest AFHG in a heartbeat.   It is exhausting listening to all of the house guests kissing Julie's butt.  

Her husband isn't the big kahuna at the network any longer.  There is no reason to suck up to her.

Regardless of anybody's personal feelings for/against her, Julie is the emcee of BB - and on a live broadcast, the job of ANY emcee is to keep the show moving in a timely fashion; if doing so requires a certain degree of sharpness with some foot-draggers, so be it.  

Personally, I'd have probably been a little more brusque than Julie did when the number of repetitive reprimands for the same damn thing got past #3 or so....

I understand, but I don't think it is that big of a deal with the paddles.   If TPTB are that slow when it comes to determining who got the questions right then that is a whole other issue.  Under those circumstances, it is TPTB that are slowing down the game.  Why should she bitch at the house guests?

Yes, house guests who can't make up their mind when it comes to answering questions might need a boot in the butt.

You would have been far more entertaining, that is for sure.

n truth, I never liked Tom Green back in his heyday; to me he was one of those comedians who was always trying WAY TOO HARD to get the laugh, with the result always falling flat.  There were still flashes of THAT Tom from time to time - Cereal Box Osprey being a prime example - but on the whole he seems a lot more comfortable in his own skin nowadays, and I find that much more likeable.

P. S.: that’s the same reason I can’t stand Will Ferrell for more than 3-4 minutes at a shot; the older I get, the lower my OTTDTT* drops.

You captured my exact sentiments once again, Nashville! Maybe in about 10 years, we'll be watching Will Ferrell on CBB12 and we'll say the same thing about him : )

Did they ... really have Ricky make a joke about a Heisman-winning running back stealing things, and "hope it ends better this time?!"

I'm floored that Ricky took Tamar. I was sure Tamar was gone, because if he wanted to "beat the best," he'd have taken Lolo, and if he wanted to beat a goat, he'd have taken Dina (who! won! nothing!) Tamar won comps, she played both sides, she had allies.

And then when Ricky got up there, he didn't even own his cutthroat gameplay! When he started talking about being real outside of the house, it was like Paul and friendship all over again.

Maybe Josh to Tamar is a good comparison. Both super-fans, both likely won due to being the less odious choice.

But ... Kato Kaelin on a jury, man. What a weird season.

It took 19 years but we’re getting a Black winner

I'd technically count Josh as a POC winner, since he's Afro-Latino and has said that his father is black

I thought Tamar had the lousiest attitude of the bunch and it wasn't close.  I don't believe for a minute that she won the Twitter vote either.  I think that was "done" just to keep her in the house. 

I wish BB was played using "game show" rules.  I think it is abundantly clear that it is not.

If house guests in the diary room are reading off of a teleprompter, how can anyone remotely think that BB is on the up and up?  They could read something off of the teleprompter in there that could affect their popularity with the viewing audience and lose AFHG as a result.

If they want to have a show where the person who needs the money the most wins the money, then change the name of this show from "Celebrity Big Brother", to "America's Sad Sack".   They can have the reality show sponsored by Kleenex.  Then they can have "Boo Hoo" competitions.   Saddest, most pathetic house guests get to stay in the house.  They would probably have to change the name of the show in someway.  The initials do spell "ASS".

ETA:  I am not cold-hearted.  I just have more sympathy for people who don't act like jerks.

I couldn't stand Tamar either, but that Twitter vote win I believe was real. She and Kandi had the most Twitter followers out of anyone on their season, and then when you combine Tamar's millions of followers with however many followers Toni has on social media, it's really not surprising that she won the Twitter vote.
