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.

Next season is going to be very interesting if they keep the cast dynamics the same as this season. Maybe this season was just a one off and it wouldnít go down like this again. But you have to be alert to it.

The problem in this day and age is woke culture. What would have happened if the white houseguests got together after 4-5 weeks this season and said do you see whatís happening here?? Weíre the only ones being voted off. We have to form an alliance and go after the black houseguests. What would be the result of this? Would this be on the news everywhere? Would you be labeled a racist in the real world? Would you risk losing your job when you get out of the house? Thatís a real possibility.

I watched it off and on. Got bored pretty quick. Would watch maybe 10-15 minutes of each episode. But itís been like this for a few years. Iíll get halfway through a season and just be bored to tears.

Call me a moron to my face and see what happens you sit-drinking liberal cuck.
Blacks targeted early? Really?
Season 1, Cassandra Waldron evicted week 5, leaving only 5 other players, in the middle, not early.
Season 2, Monica cones in 3rd place. Not eliminated early.
Season 3, Marcellas comes in 5th, not eliminated early.
Season 3, Danielle Reyes is runner up, not exactly eliminated early.
Season 5, Marvin is eliminated in the middle spots.
Season 7 Danielle and Marcellas are back and eliminated in middle weeks, not early.
I mean, so much proof that youíre FOS. Seems we know who the real moron is.

Itís CBSís policy now that all reality shows just feature a cast that is half POC, so what you describe is what will happen going forward. The game will come down to whites against blacks. CBS is happily setting race relations back 50 years.

Re: Big Brother 22: All-Stars

What a fun cast.

Claire, DX, Kyland(entertainment value since he's a cocky douche), Xavier, Chaddah, Tiffany and even Alyssa are all players I'd love to see play again.

Iíve really only ever checked in each season to see if there are any hotties Iíd want to inseminate. If so, Iíll watch in the hopes of a nip slip or something. Thatís really about all I care about in life.
