Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Is saying his nephew’s name in vain worse than just calling him a slur?

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Per a discussion between Xavier and DF, the second place racist gets $75K this season. DF is planning on coming in second. Makes sense since Xavier is the head racist that came up with the plan of targeting white contestants.

That’s not racist. That’s just funny. Besides, everyone knows Asian men aren’t packing much so it’s not very likely she would have felt it.

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Azah winning makes part 3 really exciting. Does anyone know if Azah is planning on taking Big D if she wins? If she plans on taking Xavier, I have no words....

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Azah and Big D basing their f2 decision on who they are chummy with, give me a break. How about basing it off of who you can beat

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Man, Big D is so tilting when he continues to tell Azah he "carried" her all season. Bro, you didn't even win a comp all season...you didn't carry anyone.

Big D is also so hostile in critical conversations when he needs to be gaining people's favor, not losing it. Xavier just runs circles around both of them.

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Xavier absolutely smashed that comp, just like he's smashed this whole season.

Part of me sort of misses the totally random F3 comp they used to do where you would have to guess how the jury members finished their sentences. A lot of the answers were so shocking and sort of random, but I feel like the recent F3 comps they've done have just been too easy for the contestants.

It’s consistent with the past 95 days of Azah’s gameplay

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Here’s my thing, they keep talking about the first black to win, blah, blah, blah. All they accomplished was proving blacks are inferior big brother players than whites. They only way a black could win was by stacking the deck.

Not going to watch but I'm happy to hear he won. Always tilts me when a butthurt jury votes for someone else because the person dominated so bad.

Probably one of the top players in recent history, hope he comes back for an All Star season.

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

Decent season. Happy that X won, he was a beast and reasonably non-douche which is good enough.

My take on the race stuff (hopefully more balanced than MHE's moronic ****. Also totally grunching so no idea how much this has been discussed):

It's been a known thing that black (and old) contestants are famously first targeted on this show. Unfortunately I think part of it is human nature where people are thrown into these spots where they're forced to meet 15 strangers and quickly form at least some rudimentary alliances while they figure **** out, so they gravitate towards the people that they can relate to easiest, which for better or worse means folks in their racial and age group. It's shitty but it's not really racism per se.

The Cookout was the natural reaction to this, and was bound to happen once CBS cast a big enough black contingent. Nothing wrong with it as a strategic play. The problem of course is that this became the lead story for the season (and not that it was something 'pushed' by CBS or anything, it was obviously gonna be front and center) it's gonna continue to be on everyone's minds in future seasons. It's gonna be really depressing if every single season starts immediately breaking down along racial lines, or if you start seeing weird **** where black or white alliances try to team up with smaller groups of Asian or Latino players or something for numbers, as if they're a multi-party parliament trying to form coalitions.

The producers will do what they can to avoid this by doing more of what they did this season with quasi-random teams that earn immunity together, but you can't do that for more than a few weeks and still have it be BB and not Survivor. It's gonna be weird. I know people from other countries think that Americans are really weirdly obsessed with race, and I feel like the show is gonna prove that.

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

The producers need to figure something out to improve the end game. Every season comes down to a strong player or 2 making it to the end and dragging along a person who is completely useless and has no chance to win which is boring AF.

What do you guys think of splitting the house into 2 separate groups of 8 living in the BB house together, each of which can only compete and vote for their side of the house. have each side play down to one winner then have a jury consisting of both teams vote for the overall winner?

It's not a perfect solution, but anything is better than 1 good player taking useless people to the end.
