Everything she said makes sense and contextually I am sympathetic to what she said. Obviously she knows there are cameras so that's going to be taken into consideration about her honesty. They gave Ross a DR where he voiced his possible skepticism, and I think that's the right approach. If you're going to change who you are and who you associate with, you have to be an active participant in control of your life going forward. So if she really is sorry about it all, she has to stick to it in her outlook, temperament and who she associates with. Rise above and I think that would go a long way towards improving her image.

Prior to the Ross chat I expected politics talk to tank the women's alliance.

Yeah, that's my take. Her Trump grift ended when she got fired so now she's playing the regretful well-intentioned patriot, it's the best PR move she has left. She's good TV though.

I don't buy it for a second. She was paid a million dollars for this and for a talk show on CBS and knows she has to rehab her brand QUICK. Big Brother obviously thought she would be targeted right away and she ended up with first week immunity.

The way she acted with Rudy in the HOH room and subsequent interview? That's the real Omorosa.

A lot of gameplay so far, Shannon has been trying to flip the vote to save James. Ross and Marissa seem on board but it looks like it will be an eviction time decision.

I hope they save him because he seems invested in playing the game. Shannon could use another comp threat and target in the house with her too.

Like Teek said, Omarosa has been shockingly decent so far; she even looked good in the feeds.

Speaking of feeds, (no noms or anything in here, just the shenanigans) Brandi got completely wasted last night. During charades, for 'Jumanji,' she mimed a large nose to try to get people to say 'Jew.' She later attempted to gently caress a butternut squash.

That poo poo is amazing, but in Metta's defense, it's what Chuck asked for. During his speech, Chuck actually said the words, "all the people who vote for me, I will try to help you stay as long as I can".
And Metta has obviously never watched this show before. Then to make matters worse in the DR he said "I vote for Chuck" before giving Julie a chance to ask, "Who do you vote to evict?"

Well from the link posted early in the thread, it's only a deal to film a pilot for it. But she is getting a million bucks for it and Big Brother. https://radaronline.com/videos/omar...er-white-house/

It is kind of interesting, Julie has yet to announce if they actually get anything for winning, so I assume they just paid everybody money to do it for 30 days? I don't think she even mentioned it being for some charity?

Hmm I still agree with Teek in that I am contextually sympathetic to Omarosa if she is really interested in change ... because that's a big if. I don't think that change will happen in the BB house, where people's defense mechanisms get amped up to eleven anyway.

I am rooting for Metta. It would be cool if he starts out knowing nothing about the game and ends up mastering it (or just winning accidentally, whatever).

I decided to tune in because I had nothing better to watch.

So Omarosa gets cocky and fucks up her nominations leaving a vulnerable Brandi next to her target Ross. Brandi starts sabotaging her own game through stupidity and Mark and James realize they can't trust Omarosa and look to make a deal with Ross and Marissa. Wacky POV twists introduced to make everything crazy. And somehow Metta goes home because he's crazy?

This is either the worst episode of Big Brother ever or the best.

This is the best season of Big Brother in a long while, and that all would make better sense to us if you were recapping the live feeds

Less than one week to go, with episodes on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Crazy pace and if the ratings are good I could see BB having a similarly short all-star or all-winners season.

Last night was the second time the houseguests voted out the wrong person!
When Omarosa and Keshia were on the block, should have voted out Omarosa and then Keshia would have quit.
This week, should have voted out Brandi and if Metta really wanted out he would have to quit the game.

I dunno 2 quits is pretty lame, especially on a 3 week season.

Also, I would definitely consider the way Brandi has treated James and the way Omarosa treated Shannon to be incredibly toxic. At least Ross is a joy to watch, and Mark is pretty competently playing the asleep floater game (which I didn't think viable for such a short season).
