So, every year I wait with anticipation for the big reveal of house guests and twists, and every year I do a certain amount of bitching about how I am disappointed about certain aspects of the season, or certain people in the cast. This year is just not like that for me. This year it isn't a "certain amount" of bitching and being disappointed, it's pretty much my overall feelings that most of this cast plus the twist are worthless.
When I found out that the twist this year would be returning dynamic duos, I was a bit afraid of something like what is happening being the case, but I was not at ALL prepared for how bad it really is. Dick was the only one of the returning HGs that I looked forward to seeing, and of course we all know, he is gone. So now what? We have the duos, Brenchal, who I THOUGHT during the first few days might be a bit different this year, but after gaining some power (HOH and Veto) are turning out to be EXACTLY like they were last year. JeJo, which let's be real here, some of you enjoy them as eye candy, but can anyone really say that Jordan has game? I didn't think so. The last thing I want to watch on the live feeds is Jordan sitting around eating and bitching about her period, and even worse...this is the SECOND year I have had to watch her do this. I am sure she is a lovely person in real life, but a BB gamer she is not. Jeff has a decent social game, but again, RERUN. I just don't care about him at all this year. Daniele is NOT one of my favorite people as far as personality, and I hope she does not dive into her whining and moaning she did all season 8, but for now, she is the only vet playing with half a brain, and I respect that. She is socializing with both sides whether she likes them or not and insuring her safety no matter who comes into power when her golden key becomes invalid, and we ALL know what a powerhouse she is when it comes to comps. I could easily see her taking the whole game before the new kids even realize what is going on.
This brings me to the newbies....sigh. I don't really want to run through what I think of each and every one of them, so I will just highlight the things I like and the things that are pissing me off. In reality, there are only two things I actually like so far. I like the fact that Cassi is actually trying to play the game. She may have a little problem with verbal diarrhea and it will probably fuck her in the end, but at least she is trying, and I like Lawon. Not for game play, I just enjoy watching him very much. His sunshiny attitude and Lawonisms keep me interested in watching the banter on the live feeds, and I enjoy him for that. I feel like Shelly, Adam, Kailia, and Porsche are entirely too worried about being "liked" by the veteran couples, so they end up tattletaling on anyone actually playing the game IE Cassi, and they spend more time licking buttholes than they do thinking about their own safety from a game perspective. I am not sure what I think about Dominic. I feel like part of him wants to play the game, but I also feel like if he were there to play the game he wouldn't continuously screw his own alliance by telling entirely too much to the vets. This brings me to Keith, who I would be giving entirely too much credit if I even talk about his game...so I will just say, I really hope he walks out the door this week.
My only hope for this season really hinges on the idea of one of the newbies winning this coming HOH and having the balls to put up a vet couple. Otherwise I see the vets just picking off the newbies one by one and it coming down to Dani, Jeff, and one of the members of Brenchal in the final weeks this year. I am not irrational, and I won't quit watching because I love my Big Brother and I always have hope...but this year I am having a really hard time getting it up for these people. What do you guys think? Can someone give me hope? PLEASE?
