Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Vanessa didn't start until today, but here was a preview clip from yesterday:




Some updates from today:

Spoiler:


It's pretty surreal to be seeing someone from poker on this show that i've watched before - wonder what people who don't know her from poker think about her ...

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Her intro piece was cringe worthy, if she acts like this on the show, they'll boot her ass in no time. Having said that, I'm sure the producers made her do that stupid piece

Big Brother seems to attract the weirdest personalities and this year is no exception

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Here's hoping Big Brother After Dark is uncensored this season. Heard one f bomb, 1st since they left Showtime. Can't beat uncensored and hi def. Vanessa with a crying spell over missing her love. Didn't see that coming so soon. And the poker dealer was consoling her. Interesting.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Damn. Two hours later and she's still crying. First night. And questioning her own desire to be there. Saying she didn't know she was such a big baby. She's just an emotional wreck right now. Doesn't know if it's worth the money to be feeling as ****ty as she does. Got a feeling they won't have any problem voting her out.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

If you haven't figured big brother out with the personalities. One nerd, one flamboyant gay guy, has to be flamboyant though. Couple fake breasted woman, one or two black people, an old person, roided out jock. Same types of people over and over.


One more thing, the black chick deals poker and didn't recognize VR, I'm guessing she deals the pit game Texas holdem lol

Big LOL on this. That is playing cards face up then. She might as well not even unpack to stay in there then. They vote those that they feel don't want to be there and won't cause much ruckus being on the block and vote out.

The odds are very high that she will be put on the block unless her sitting out of the comp gives her a free pass for this week.

Da'Vonne deals in LA. SO maybe the Commerce? I would think that she would know who she is. We just haven't seen it on the show.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Watched big brother every year. Having the most annoying girl of poker on there puts me in ape tilt and I want to break my tv when she comes on.

It was fun when Garrett was on Survivor too, but it felt like he kind of started off at a disadvantage when they broke people down into teams of 'brains', 'braun', and 'beauty', and he got put with the brains but he 'looked' like he should have been put with the braun. And then when the brains had to vote someone out from their team, they voted out Garrett, instead of the lady that went crazy and threw all their food in the fire

Sort of feels like Vanessa might be starting out at a disadvantage as well, with their being a poker dealer in the house at the same time - it seems like the second people start considering voting the poker dealer out, she might point to Vanessa, and say to vote her out instead?

Whatever happened to the 'good old days' of casting 'twists' like the long-lost brother and sister that didn't know the other existed ... or the exes with the bad breakups, or identical twins secretly playing as one contestant, etc?

The twins that play as one is a twist this year. I hear more than one also

So now it's time to predict how she tries to play this off once she's off the show. Convenient editing? Bluffing (weak is strong)? Low blood sugar? PMS? Game theory?

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Wow her breakdown on the live show was so cringeworthy. She is making zero sense and the way she talks is leaving me very confused

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

The poker dealer fills me with a wild rage every time she speaks. She's keeping her profession a secret, and when explaining why she said something along the lines of "Everybody knows that poker dealers make the best poker players, and poker players are big targets in Big Brother yada yada".

Speaking as a former dealer and terrible poker player, I'm pretty sure that dealers are known for being lousy at poker. Also how does she not recognize Vanessa Rousso.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Watched for 1st time to see Vanessa. Show was pretty boring. Vanessa looked awkward, and didn't seem like she even wanted to be there.

She said in a intro that "she used used to be married to a man, now is with a women. Love it love." or something like that, then sat down. She left out the part about leaving the man after he got cancer.

then she volunteers to sit out the first competition. so gay.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Volunteering to sit out, be have not, etc. is always a good play. They already agreed to not put up the 2 who sat out first week.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

You think that's legitimate strategy?

Could be.

I don't know if I give her that much credit, though.

Never attribute game theory that which is adequately explained by emotional instability.
