If the world is in alignment, Frankie goes next, followed by the nut job Jocasta.

I haven't been watching the show religiously, what's with the Frankie hate? He is conniving, but isn't that part of the game? What has he done to merit you all wanting him gone?

I wont speak for anyone else, I just find his personality annoying. Screaming and acting like a girl.

Not to mention the primping, pirouetting, looking in the mirror more than the girls, and overall prissy behavior.
I can overlook the running and tattling every chance he gets.

Interesting, I didn't see any actual tears from Frankie. He also seemed to cheer up rather quickly.

Drama Queen to the Nth degree. I think he should leave the show to be with his family.

I'm thinking they are showing off! it's nice to see they have now HD cameras, but showing them off like every change of scene? that's like 40 times an hour...

Still at it last night, if they could reduce those by 50%...

They've always used those shots of the cameras, even in SD. It's just a transition technique. Sort of like having a screen saying "...Meanwhile in the Bee Hive Room..." like in the silent movies. They even have the cheesy music. Cutting quickly between rooms would be rather jarring.

Yeah he is definitely a "girly" kinda guy, but frankly, I think he is a pretty good player in the show. And who am I to judge the guy's mannerisms (got homophobia?) And I may be very wrong, but I think he will be around for quite a while. I get more disgusted with Caleb and his chest pumping macho attitude and his strange obsession with "whatshername" (it escapes me right now) and the antics of Zach. These two seem to be very oblivious to their actions and how they negatively affect their game.

Too many toys

Frankie loves Justin Beiber, what a surprise. I agree with people about Caleb, the guy is really delusional about Amber. That so called date, took awkward to a whole new level. Did she REALLY believe he wouldn't eat a pickle to get a date with her, come on.

Why do I watch this goofball show? This and The Bachelorette are the only reality-type shows I watch, though I think the current bachelorette is boring.

Watching the UK version really spoiled me. Now I cringe with how heavily scripted this show is. Every diary room session is scripted and shot multiple times.

The biggest thing missing is Big Brother himself (or herself). In the UK version, you hear BB asking questions and speaking to/instructing the house guests. Then you hear the questions answered by the house guests. The US version is completely one-sided.

They've got this down to a scripted science now, and extremely inexpensive to produce - and it shows.

I Could not agree more!! And it seems to get worse with each passing season. Usually, I just look past it because I connect in one way or another with one or more of the contestants and get sucked in. I still am sucked in this year to a degree, but not so much connecting with many of the contestants at all. I like Donny the best. But most of the others are too fake, like they are there only for the drama they add to the show, and are not real.


And what's with Zach and Frankie and the way they are carrying on together. Getting all touchy feeley? Do you think that is scripted?

Some of that may be real, who knows? But we know from the reports from the feeds that production will flat out strong arm people into changing a target, or have them have conversations about targeting someone they aren't just so they can get dramatic footage.

I didn't think she was that annoying except for those silly bow ties and the way she was always wiggling them.

This show just seems off to me. All these people telling each other they love them after such a short time. They get evicted and come out to talk to Julie all happy like nothing bad happened. It just doesn't seem genuine.

Bear in mind that these guys are living with each other continuously with little to do but share their life stories or talk game. Other than total blindsides, most of the people up for eviction have a sense if they're going home or not and eventually accept it by the time they walk out the door. Plus when they're out talking to Julie, they want to put their best "face" forward instead of being a crying mess and cursing everybody out. Even Hayden, the victim of the second eviction, had a sense that he was on the losing end of the house when everyone voted Jacosta out, so it wasn't really a surprise that he was on the chopping block. I think if they had voted out Nicole last night, that you would have seen her break down a bit in front of Julie because she seemed a bit stressed to be up on the chopping block.
