Re: Big Brother 17 -- Premieres Wednesday June 24th on CBS @ 8pm

I thought I had heard someone mention there was a transgender this season, but I was too lazy to look up who it was. Well played I guess.

Man, it is pretty slim pickings this year. I guess Liz might be the hottest? Her voice is kind of weird though

Re: Big Brother 17 -- Premieres Wednesday June 24th on CBS @ 8pm

Listening to the RHAP cast assestment podcast right now and D'vonne said that she's not going to tell the house that she's a poker dealer. Her reasoning is that to be a poker dealer you have to be a good poker player so she doesn't want the house to think she's a good liar. LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO WHAT A COMPLETE CROCK OF ****!

It's actually the complete opposite. People who are bad poker players are the reason they are dealing. I have never met a poker dealer that I thought was a great player, they're all terrible. She's my pick for first out of the house.

Re: Big Brother 17 -- Premieres Wednesday June 24th on CBS @ 8pm

I watched a few of the cast videos and so far Vanessa Rousso appears to be the only one who conceives what the game is like (They all talk about what strong competitors they are, about 15% of BB imo). I don't know her as a poker player, but imagine she is used to spending countless hours around a table with at least 5 annoying people. I would think that is pretty good training for surviving in an environment where you cannot escape the dip****s.

Also, clearly they cast lots of people who want to get laid. This speaks well of the seasons potential as BB w/o drama is just a bad game. I want emotional blood or I tune out.

So Jeff and Jackie from latest Amazing Race season might be in the house. I don't really understand how they come up with those 2 but whatever.

Since when was battle of the block a fan favorite? Never been so annoyed with a premiere. Enough with the ****ing twists. I am just hoping these weekly twists are not gonna totally screw up the game.

What's with acting like the twin twist is something new?

Worst premier ever.

Lol at Vanessa saying she's one of the best poker players in the world. Can't stand her already from a one minute clip, can't imagine living with her for 3 months . No chance she wins BB

Pretty sure that Liz mentioned somewhere that she has an identical twin.

I can't believe they are bringing battle of the block back on top of all the other stupid twists they'll be running all summer. Grodner is determined to make this season as horrible as possible.

Re: Big Brother 17 -- Premieres Wednesday June 24th on CBS @ 8pm

Takeover is Grodner's masterpiece. A pure refined and distilled version of awful crap. A think tank comprised of the 100 dumbest people on earth could spend a decade trying to come up with a worse idea only to fail.

Hands down the single worst idea in reality television history.

P.S. Will Pete will think it's genius.

Agreed about Vanessa looking like probably the smartest. Didn't watch all of the videos but the one's i did see all seemed dumb except her. She seemed/is smart. She can be annoying at times with her arrogance, but she is a poker player, and that is way smarter than most people that get picked for these shows. They got the jock beefcake dude that has zero brains. They asked him would you rather win the game/money or be loved by fans? He said be loved by fans over the money. The poker dealer said "to be a great dealer you have to be a great poker player first. That great poker players than become dealers" or something close to that. So we know she's dumb. Actually one kid is a nerd and is like this years Ian. He seems/is smart.

I think Vanessa will have a great chance to win as long as they don't recognize her(or be told by the poker dealer) and gang up on her to get her out. Also she can't put people off trying to prove/show how smart she is ala Annie Duke.

I think Vanessa has the potential to make this year good if she stays on the show for a long time. If she gets ousted i fear it will be bad because the others seem like boring and or airheads for the most part. I hope she succeeds and makes shows like this look for poker players in the future. I would love to see Hellmuth on here. I could imagine the houseguests talking behind his back about how obnoxiously arrogant he is.

I hope the transgender girl has a twin, I think she mentioned she has a brother. One day she's a she, the next he's a he.

But if the battle of the block helped Sarah win on Canada it would be the greatest thing ever right?
