Ace's 11th Annual Big Brother thread (Pt. II)

In case you don't know the drill: NO SPOILERS, please. Discussion of the CBS show only (i.e. no live-feed talk). Thanks!

Let's all shed a tear for Mark, making it cool for buff dudes to cry about nothing on TV in 2017. We'll miss you, big fella.

It sure does and now is the time to tune in for some true frontstabbing betrayals. Last night's Veto was on fire and I loved the way Jason took control. It is his week. I kinda can't wait to see either Mark or Raven going solo as they've been boring and shacked up all summer.

This is the first time I've followed the whole thing. Giving Paul (or anyone, but especially a talented alum) 3 weeks immunity from getting the boot was a mistake imo. The temptation tree is not being utilized. They should have at least made the ratio more positive than negative so people would take a chance.

Yes, he should win. But I get the BB19 nickname, Big Paul. If they keep doing this it will be Big Boring.

Who will go tonight, Jason & ? How exactly does the end work. Final 3 and then jury votes?

In recent seasons, they go down to three for the final episode, and then two for the vote.

Is Paul a ratings magnet? As I said I'm new but from what I'm reading most regulars think this is a pretty boring season because of him. Does one person usually decide who will throw comps, etc?

Thanks for the jury info, Ace.

CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER US IS COMING!!!!!!

I am so hoping this is what Endemol was teasing with their mega-offer for Ivana Trump to be a guest on CBBUK. If it is, or if any Jacksons, Nelsons, or Ciccones make it into the house I doubt I will be able to get away from my All Access Stream as I LOVE the vulgar, no fucks attitudes of the celebs in the BB house in the UK.

Who's your best guess/ultimate houseguest? Aaron Carter would be pretty hilarious too. Vivica A. Fox would be a great addition too.

He was popular with viewers last season, so I guess they wanted to make sure he'd be around for at least a few weeks.


There have been previous seasons where one player has had a lot of sway over some of the others, but I can't say that "...one person usually decide(s) who will throw comps, etc."

Ivana was on one season of CBBUK, no?

Best guess? Any D-lister who's hard up for cash? razz


My ultimate houseguests? None of them would touch this thing with a ten-foot pole. lol

This is one of the worst crop of newbies we've ever had in the BB house, I'm not sure what Alison Grodner and production saw in most of these people.

Paul should win if he get's to F2, Christmas and Josh have no argument that should win them the game IMO, they're only chance is if the jury is bitter ala BB 14 style when Ian beat Dan.

Even the feeds weren't that good this season, overall I'd rank BB19 in the bottom five of all time Big Brother seasons

BB 19 is my first, and probably the last one I will waste this much time on again. It's been interesting to see how the (mostly) millenials play their 'social game". We didn't have stuff like that. The whole network of commentary around it is good too. I love Madrosed and Rob/Taran on youtube.

Paul is a 'friendship' bully who got everyone to gang up on one person at a time, and pick them off one by one. Why no one after Cody put him up to go is just crazy to me. I hope he doesn't win but will not be suprised if he does. Bullys are in style these days, but nothing to admire.

Madrosed is a mother/daughter team from NY that does the same thing as Rob - good stuff. Taran Armstrong is on many of Rob's BB podcasts and now has his own niche - The Taran Show. I found all of the people who comment clicking around youtube. Rob is doing BB backyard interviews for 19. Maddy from Madrosed has auditioned for BB a few times.
