    You watching it this season? Did you ever like BB? Has it jumped the shark? It's another show I got into late so I can't compare it to what it was like when it was fresh.

    I apparently didn't care enough to pay attention to when the new season would premiere. Ooops.

    But I cared enough to be glad I found the opener on Youtube. :rolleyes:

    My first impression is that I like the set up of this season's game better than last season's where they pitted past players against new folks. Didn't seem at all fair to the new guys. The first-timers didn't have a realistic chance to shine in any good way -- the main skill which they were rewarded for was properly genuflecting to the old-timers. Hard to find anyone to root for in that season.

    With the old-timers coming back as coaches instead of players the show still has the ratings draw of having popular past players present but the competitors have a more level playing field.

    I love it this year with the mentors. I'm so happy Rachel is not one of them.

    The people look good, athletic and pretty smart. Love seeing Dan, Boogie, Janelle and even Britney although I didn't like Brit on her season.

    It looks good. Do you get BB After Dark on Showtime?

    No, we don't have cable.

    Last year I followed a BB forum where they report in detail on the live feeds. That was interesting.

    They're playing Fuck, Chuck, or Stuck.

    Naming 3 people, you Chuck one off a cliff, have a one-time Fuck with another, and be Stuck for the rest of your life with the other.

    :lol:

    Poor Dan was given Rosie, Hillary, and Oprah!!

    Yep, they're called updaters. I'm on one of those.

    Dan's my favorite winner. He looks so sweet but he's ruthless.

    I'm amazed how some of them picked up right away on the fact that there was a similarity between Willie and Russell Hantz from Survivor. I'm also amazed that he came clean about it. I'm guessing he learned a thing or two from his brother's total lack of a social game and is going to be more honest. If they'd heard about it down the road, he'd be toast. Maybe now they'll give him a chance to prove he's not his brother.
