Although I try to be an equal-opportunity snark, human nature precludes that I'll set my spears on an individual or two. In the past, it's primarily been the vets that have in my mind ruined the game. This year, it was initially Elissa as I didn't think the MVP twist was fair to the rest of the house (plus I feel that family's fanbase is batshit crazy). As the season has progressed, others have popped in and out of my sarcastic radar.
At the end of the day, though, I really don't care who wins. I just want there to be a combination of interesting people at the end so I don't lose interest. Seriously, the idea of a Helen/Andy/Candice finale is a nightmare scenario. There has to be one "villain" to last to the end, even if they have no chance of actually winning.
Many people, though, seem incapable of looking at this game in any other vision than the eyesight of their favorite player. Anybody that is against that person is evil incarnate, and that person's fan base should be ridiculed, condemned, or, in the case of twitter, sabotaged by reporting it to twitter as abusive.
It's bullshit, people. Enjoy which ever player you want, and dislike those you truly don't like, but don't lecture others that don't think like you. Why should it matter? It would be REALLY boring if we all thought the same.
What set me off today? It's an issue that's been festering for days, especially after the discovery that the family's of a good portion of the case are being harassed at all hours of the day and night. I'm not just talking about those that have used questionable language, either. Portions of the Big Brother community have turned into complete morons. There used to be an unspoken rule that families are to remain off limits, but apparently that's no longer the case.
Furthering my anger at the community is the reactions I'm reading to Amanda freaking out at being the MVP nomination. As her critics salivate at being able to spend their entire day over-tweeting about how much they hate her, they also are digging in to toss the same kind of verbal grenades at those who do like her.
So let me toss this out at you. This MVP thing is a mindfuck now that it's not a weekly Elissa event. They're all freaked out about the identity of the "person" making this pick. Yes, Amanda is over-the-top paranoid about the identity of who nominated her. Isn't that natural?
What would happen if the MVP had been Helen? She'd be crying to some people, and interogating others. Or both. If it had been Candice, there's be another episode of her silly fake show where she'd attempt to call everybody out. Eliisa would run to the diary room to get answers from her buddies.
The point is that any of them would be acting out in some way. None of them would look calm or gracious. I'm not saying that you can't criticize or poke fun at their reactions. But to say that person's fans are "delusional" for simply being disappointed or raising questions on how this happened is ridiculous.
