Big Brother 9

Okay, this is totally my guilty pleasure - and how pumped was I that this trash was being given a winter episode!

Anyone else watch it and want to dish? What do you think about the couples this season? Am I the only one who watches (or at least admits to watching) this show?

As a side note, I made a deal with my BF last summer that because he had subjected me to hockey all winter, he'd have to watch BB in the summer. He whined and complained over the first few episodes (to the point where I'd rather watch it alone!!), but he became a Dick fan () and got so into it he was reading message boards and even wanted to subscribe to the live feed (which is even too far for me).

Now, with the new season, he's hemming and hawing again - I remind him about his obsession last summer, but he's in solid denial .. I give up.

Ok, here it goes....My name is Teri and I like Big Brother.

I watched it last night, and I liked it, I like all reality Tv tho, so it's right up my ally. The guys in it are very hot, agreed? I am not a girlie girl kinda girl, especially women who make our sex look weak and helpless, so I don't find any of them attractive or even interesting...not yet...maybe as the show goes on...but I don't mind staring at the ol'eye candy. YUM!

I think I would flip out if I went in there with my bf, as a couple, to try and decieve others, only to find out we are on different coupled teams!! I am not a jealous person at all, but I couldn't handle watching some chick hang off my man....

Who else watches this...stop lurking and admit it...join our support group.

The guys are pretty hot - I thought the one with the blue eyes was good looking (I never know their names until a few weeks in - so they just get nicknames ) until I heard him speak and discovered he was an arrogant pig. But Doctor Will was like that too and I liked him (have I revealed too much? Talking about past seasons proves I'm an addict! )

I asked my BF what would happen if we went in together and the same thing happened - he said he would rig it so that we were in the finals together. But I think it would be really hard!!

I love this show because it comes on three times a week. Tonight is an eviction already!

(and seriously, get out of denial and join us. We can all be together )

Yep, I'm a BB addict too.....right from Day 1.

I love this season's twist and I really like Parker but hubby calls him Alfalfa. Hubby only watched half of it last night and said he was going to bed halfway through tonight's show but after he brushed his teeth he watched from the doorway for 10 min. and then sat down until it was over.

And, btw, I liked Dick right from the beginning last year and was glad he won.

I have been BBing since the first airing of this show. Love it.
I didn't mind Dick from last year either rainbow, his self-centerd, spoiled, snivling daughter however got my feathers ruffled.

I thought the whole idea was repulsive... refused to watch it... then three seasons ago I was forced to watch it at a friend's... now I'm hooked... and so ashamed...

I am so rooting for Crazy Homeless Guy!!! And here I though Dick was a character.... riding a bike and living in a tent wins hands down!!!

And how gorgeous is the gay couple?! They're almost pretty!

There you all are....I knew it wasn't just me and phoozles!

Last nights was good eh? When is it on again? I have time shifting options too.

When that guy started shooting his mouth off, then back tracking, you knew he was gone for sure!!

And I think it was a huge mistake for Jen and Ryan to tell their partners...I mean come on, the first eviction day, and you spill the beans, as if Jen couldn't talk Parker out of voting for them??? Ryan's girl looked ticked. And Sheila and Adam looked like they were getting along better in the last challange too, she just needs to shut her trap a bit more...I dont see him as the greatest catch, but why is everyone walking around saying "poor sheila, she's so unlucky in the game"...with the constant complaining, it's hard for me not to side with Adam.

DH is on nights again next week, I get to watch so much reality TV when he's on nights..

I think Jen told Parker because she was really jealous of Ryan's partnership - so she was just looking for an excuse. Which in my mind, was really dumb. Parker didn't care, but it was pretty obvious that the other chick (Allison.. ? They should have to wear name tags for the first few weeks - nah, I'd still not remember their names ), wasn't going to be happy, because she digged him.

I think the cat's going to be let out of the bag sooner rather than later. And BB's other "secret couple" are already kicked out!

I guess Sunday is the next nomination ceremony - I don't remember what time it comes on though.. And I agree with the others - that's why timeshifting rules!

I missed Sunday too :sad:
Considering the ridiculous recaps they always do at the beginning of the show, I guess it doesn't matter..

Jen and Parker were scared Allison was going to tell everyone about Jen and Ryan so they told them all themselves - everyone was mad that they'd kept it a secret so then they were targets.

Nominations.. Amanda and I forget his name nominated Jen and Parker and Ryan and Allison for eviction.... annnd that's all I remember!

Thats the dumbest thing I have ever heard.. BUT...I will keep watching...

What on earth would you be mad that they kept their secret....wouldn't it be obviously in a game of couples/love that if they couldn't truely be a couple, they'd be gone? Hense not telling.

I can't wait for the next one...

Darn....I wish we had time shifting. I have to wait until 9:00pm to watch it tonight. I hope that it's Ryan and Allison that go tonight. Not fair to Ryan but I like Parker.

Who watched last nights?

I liked parker too, but he's getting on my nerves - well last night anyways...Amanda too, I can't stand her...he voice is enough for me to change the channel..good lord...and then that guy (is it Matt?) goes on an on about giving Parker his veto, then doesn't? Why would you do that?

And the whole Sheila/Allison lesbian plot, cracks me up!! Funny, they didn't even show Adam in last night's show.

When's the next show?

Tonight.... should be interesting... last nights was retarded... that Amanda.. or whoever with the chalkboard voice is such a spaz! And the NY guy seemed to be alright in the beginning but now he is like a creepy stalker or something. I can't believe I watch that show.... I can almost feel my IQ dropping for that hour!!!

Yeah, they really ramped up the "look at the crazy stalker" in that Alex guy, didn't they? Is Amanda (or whatever squeaky voice's name is) really worth all this drama? Last night's episode was kind of boring - I find the shows don't really pick up until they kick off a few more people.

Anyone know why that guy (Neil - I think?) left the show? I had a feeling something was up because I was watching the opening credits and they showed that Jacob guy leaving, but not his partner - the blonde one .. man, I really have a problem remembering their names!

Ya, they played up the stalker story line...but they also placed TV's in all the bedrooms so you can view the kitchen and yard...that just increases the stalking pleasure...I probably would have turned it on to had my partner (who acts like a tramp) left the room...

The last shot, with the added music made it looks total stalker...

Not sure what they quickly said when they announced Neil leaving....family issue...Sharon's his new partner.

It's on tonight!!!???!!

They all got on my nerves last night.....even Parker. I agree it doesn't get better until a few more go. I hope it's not Parker tonight though.

Ya, the hot ones always go first...:sad:

So last nights fight was a doozy eh? Screaming match...all the gossip, what did she expect?? DUH! And then the whole racist comment? I was glad to Jen go, but I liked looking at Parker.

So, I see that nominations are on Sundays...I will end up missing everyone of them....:sad:

Jen was a tool - I'll miss Parker too - did you see how off he was when they were sitting with Julie? I wish he said what was on his mind.

Yeah, the Sunday night nominations are sometimes missed by me too - but it's better than when they were on Saturday nights.

I agree she was a tool...didn't you find it weird that Julie asked Jen and Ryan for last words before the eviction...and then asked them again what they thought, Parker and Allison had zero chances to speak. Like as if they were the only ones to be ont he block!

I wish vitto was Sunday's, those always seem the most borning of the 3 shows.

Anyone catch last nights show? I actually got to see it...even DH watched it...but only cuz when I turned it on all the girls had their bikini's on...

Sometimes the choices people make would drive me insane, I dont get why they would put Mat and Nat up, why not nom people you want to see gone? That way, either way it goes, someone you don't like is gone...I have a feeling this will backfire...I mean if people think Mat and Nat are huge competitors and will for sure win, why wouldn't you vote them out while you have the chance...I mean, they are on the block right? I would.
