View Full Version : Question to those that hate this season's cast...

07-31-2013, 07:52 PM
So I know I've made it known that I don't hate this years houseguests as much as most of the people I've seen online. I actually really like Amanda, Helen, Judd, Andy, and McCrae.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I just really like people who play this game hard. I don't generally like people who are quiet and just sit by an let people make whatever decisions they feel like without trying to influence them. I'd prefer a house of strong, cutthroat players over a group of weak, pleasant bystanders.

That being said, I understand everyone is entitled to their opinions, and I know everyone seems to hate every houseguest this season. I just wanted to get a read on what houseguests you all like from past seasons, because I feel like this happens every year. Everyone always seems to despise every person in the house by this point in the season. So my question is, what kind of players (by giving examples) do you all like to see in the house?

I like gameplay but my problem with this cast is the disregard they seem to hold for anyone that isn't them. I see a group that don't have any sense of responsibility or accountability for word or deed. I think CBS has really done the fans a dis service by not showing them the way they are behaving in the house. I feel that with this crew they really had a shot a showing a true social experiment & could have used this help create a more open dialogue for change but instead it seems like CBS is now moved to brushing it under the carpet since they only used the controversy to pick up ratings.

I also think that feelings change towards individual players each season & that is part of the fan watching them grow or stagnate thru the season. I think one of my faves would be Danielle in her original season but during all stars she like many didn't adapt to the evolved gameplay that has occurred over the years. I also enjoyed Dan because he was always adapting to survive & I think he got ripped off last year!

The worst winner ever for me was Booger he did nothing to warrant being an all star & IMO Will fixed it for him to be there & win!

I don't hate them all, it's more interesting than some seasons. My fave player of all time is of course Dr. Will. I could watch him every season!

As far as my opinions on this season's houseguests, I don't mind the aggressive and bold gameplay by some of them, in fact, most of my favorite reality contestants have been people who were not afraid to make bold moves and take risks to get ahead. It's more the hateful and mean spirited remarks and actions that turn me off to people like Amanda and Aaryn.

As for favorite BB winners, my top 2 are Will and Jordan. Will still remains one of the best to ever play the game, and like I said above, sure he lied and schemed his way to a win, but he was pretty open about the fact that he was going to lie to pretty much everyone, and he was actually a pretty charming guy...a tad self centered, but he never got nasty to the point of making personal attacks directed at people outside of his alliance. And Jordan proves that in BB, like in Survivor, all the mind games you play and all the competitions you win will not get you the 500k if you overlook the fact that this is a social game and that the main objective is to get the jury to respect you and/or the way you play enough to want to award you half a million dollars. Jordan was aware enough of that fact to always remain on good terms with everyone in the house, to the point that even the people on the block with her couldn't bring themselves to campaign for her exit. And sure she might not have been considered a threat like her final 2 opponent Natalie was, but the fact is that the jury respected Jordan more than they did Natalie.

I hate everybody this season, mainly because of their hateful behavior and CBS's lack of balls in sweeping everything under the carpet until they couldn't hide it any longer. This season could have been a great experience for all of us if we (and CBS) had been able to deal with it honestly. And most of these mactors this season are just trying to get film for their demo reels on their way to their own television shows.

For example, Aryan thinks she is really hot. If she spent ten minutes walking around LA, she would see that everybody here looks like her, but they also have a 42DD chest. But she could probably do all right in the porn industry.

As for favorites, I only have one ... Dr. Will. He was a fan; he loved the game; he played hard; and he had a good time while he was there, with no malice toward anyone. That's what I want to see in future houseguests.

I don't hate everyone in there either. I don't mind Judd or Jessie. I used to like Helen and Amanda but I am having a huge problem with their behavior now.

Like many, I loved Will, Danielle (s3), Dan and even Daniele Donato in the last season she was in. She could be pretty snarky as well. Hell I liked Brittany in her season, and we all know how snarky she got.

Thing is, put aside the nasty comments for a second, and look more at the passive aggressive bullying that's happening. The players I named above never told people straight up that if they don't do what they want then they would be the "enemy" next week. They weren't as hypocritical. Will was charming, Danielle was quiet (except for her DRs) Daniele D tried to make alliances and play hard. It didnt sink this low before. So cocky and personal and bullying. I just don't like it.

The only other time I recall it getting this bad was with the "nerd herd" in season 6, and we all know how most felt about them. It was non stop shit talking with that group and people for tired of it.

I am really hoping someone wins next week that will be brave enough to put up Amanda next to Helen. Even if they both stay, I would like to see the rift happen and both be taken down a few pegs. Right now they are acting like terrible winners if that makes sense. Worse than the losers are acting. They run the place, they know it, and are treating everyone else in the house like they are less of a human at this point and should be kissing their asses to stay or just get to jury. I don't like when anyone acts that way. I mean today they were discussing how they are going to "let" Spencer get to jury now because they are going to send Judd and Candice out before that since they don't want to have to live with them all Summer. Should Spencer thank them for that?

Well, it's well known what I think of the majority of houseguests in that house right now. I'm not even sure I can keep from gagging at the good edits that Amanda is getting when she is far short of a good person. Frankly, if she had just stayed funny without the personal attacks or racist comments, I might still like her. I don't like Helen either. Fact is, if you don't have the balls to say something to someone's face maybe you ought to keep your mouth shut. I don't call what they are doing game play.

Now I absolutely loved Dr. Will. I also liked Danielle. And I liked Rachel when she was away from Brendon because I couldn't stand him. Also liked Jordan because she played a great social game. I liked Jerry as well. For once I got to root for someone older than me and I liked Dan when he won that year but not when they brought him back.

My perception of the people in this house is based on my own real life experiences dealing with people like Amanda, Aaryn, GM, and Spencer. I just don't put up with it. Nothing they can do in the game will ever make me like them. Oh, and when I get so fed up that I use the c-word three times in two posts, you know I'm fed up.

Of the ones left in the house, the only ones I really don't like this season are the homophobes (Aaryn, Amanda, GM, and maybe Spencer). I haven't been able to keep as up-to-date on the live feeds as I have in past seasons so maybe that's why I'm not hating on them as much as some of the other Yaksters -- LOL!

You're right though, Knucklehead -- this always happens. I was chuckling to myself last night because we hear the same thing every season -- "I'm done with this game"; "I'm not watching for the rest of the season"; etc. etc.

I do feel like CBS could/should be doing a better job of letting America see the houseguests' true colors because people who watch the live feeds know a heck of a lot more about them than the people who only watch the CBS show.

My favorite players?? Dr. Will, of course. He lied contstantly but was up-front about it and he was so charming he could get away with it. And for me, I loved Jeff and Jordan! Jordan was a sweetie pie and Jeff had this self-deprecating humor that made me like him a lot.

I for one like the social aspect of this game. So when CBS shows them in whatever edit they feel like giving them, it irritates me. They take away the social aspect when the portray them as not what they truly are.

Like I said, the ones I had truly liked in the past lied a lot, played the game hard, but didn't get too personal ALL the time. This has been constant. It's like they need to make themselves feel better by putting down whoever might be the loser of the week. Will never did that. He just lied and manipulated, but you didn't hear constant belittling of people. You didn't get that from Dan either. It's not necessary. It's a game. I think many in the house lose sight of that.

08-01-2013, 03:14 PM
The problem is ... this is no longer a social experiment to CBS. It's a reality show. There is a difference now and that's why we get the edits we get. Their goal is to put on a TV show, which is different than showing people for who they are. They show people who make good TV.

As for this season ... I don't hate everyone. I don't like the mactors, not a fan of the racist homophobes. I like Howard (although he confuses me), Candice, Jessie now and Judd. I used to like Helen and Amanda because they were playing and know the game, but man, they are annoying the shit out of me now with their attitudes. I don't hate them. Hell, I don't even hate Aaryn - i just REALLY don't like her and want her ass gone, mostly for what she's said.

08-01-2013, 04:04 PM
The reason I am hoping someone who will shake up the house wins tonight is because I am REALLY hoping to see Helen brought down a few pegs. I do like Helen... She just needs to be shaken up a bit so she comes back down from being the queen bee. She has been living pretty high since her HOH reign because her side has been constantly winning. I really would like to like her again though. She is not nearly as foul as the rest of them, just over-confident at the moment.

I do like that she is a fan and enjoying every aspect of the game. She just needs to be knocked down a bit. I think it would do her some good.

I still like Judd. Jessie, I'm trying to like. That whole "I'm so pretty" thing in the beginning still has me stand offish with her.

I think one of the things that has turned a lot of the fans off this season is that the fans almost always root for the underdog. Dan was an underdog in the beginning both seasons, JeJo were underdogs, etc. But this season, the underdogs ended up being the Biebers, and we all know it was impossible to root for them. Now, the underdogs are Howard, Candice and Spencer, but they are just so bad at this game, it's hard to root for someone who can't help themselves. All the people who we would normally like (like Helen and Andy and some of the others) are the ones actually running the game, so their confidence becomes a turnoff. It's their comfortable position that has them being confident rather than humble, and as a result, the fans hate them. I have a feeling that the moment either Amanda or Helen end up on the down and out, people will miraculously start liking them, unless their grudge against them is too strong to be redeemed.

08-01-2013, 04:21 PM
Well, let me think. If Amanda became an underdog would I root for her? Uh, no. I don't root for anyone who has made the comments that she has made in that house. Won't do it. There's absolutely no way in hell I would ever root for her. But hey, I didn't like her from the gitgo and her racist/sexual harassment and kill somebody comments just don't sit well with me.

If Helen would get off her cloud and calm herself back down to where she was in the beginning, yep, I might root for her. She would be the only one though.

08-01-2013, 04:52 PM
I don't think I could go back to Amanda either. The thing is, I don't think she would be humble when she is down and out... I think she might get meaner.

Helen on the other hand I think would go back to being humble.
