Play Nice!

There’s been a bit of an uproar on this site (and a few others) in recent days, particularly in the comments section. Rather than go through and respond to each of them individually, I thought I’d just throw out a little statement here...and then everybody that hates me can reply accordingly.

As I’ve always said, I never truly care who wins this show. I don’t root for anybody. However, I admittedly do root against certain individuals. I do root against stunt casting. I do root against returning players. Having said that, at the end of the day I still don’t care if they win. It’s the process that matters to me, not any specific person.

I also don’t care who others root for. Every person on every season has a fan base. Even the most wretched person has people rooting for them. Conversely, every player has people that root against them. There’s nothing wrong with that. How boring would it be if we ALL thought exactly alike?

My rants about “fans”, whether on this site or on our podcast, aren’t targeted towards the vast majority of viewers or feed watchers. We’re (almost) all adults here. There’s no reason why we can’t have serious conversations about our different opinions. Calm debates are fun!

It’s the unreasonable people that I have my issues with. It’s the “timeline trolls” - people who search the #bb15 timeline for any negative mention of certain people - that are ruining an otherwise fun season for me. Their replies are both predictable and, to use a favorite word of this season, “vile”. One is considered an evil person for not thinking like them. Who has so much time that they can actively search for people to scream obscenities at?

Along the same lines, the idea that I’m supposed to change my opinion to match the public is ludicrous. Whenever I see the word “bias”, I know that means nothing more than our opinions don’t match. Have we really come to the point where the only viewpoint a person is expected to hear is the one that matches their own? Again, how boring would that be?

Most of the dissension obviously centers around one specific person. Well, you’re all getting your wish as the floaters finally made a move this week. Somehow it’s been decided that I’ve been rooting for her this year. Oh yeah, rooting against another certain person means that I’m her biggest fan. I almost forgot.

It’s certainly not true, for me at least (we do have one admittedly unabashed fan on our show). Every show needs a villain, though, and she has perfectly played that role. She’s made some smart moves, and a LOT of bad moves, and has lasted much, much longer than I ever expected. You have to admit, though, that CBS would have had a hard time coming up with storylines these last few episodes without her antics.

We have just over two weeks left of the season, and only two more episodes of our podcast. Instead of the usual hatred in the comments, let’s try something different here. Who do you think will win this season? Not who you WANT to see win, but who appears to be the likely recipient of the check?

Great Job! Agree 100%


I think that either McCrae or Spencer will win the whole thing (IMO),
Not that I am rooting for either of them.

Have enjoyed this season and the flips and flops.

Thanks again for all of the updates!

I have said from the beginning that Elissa will win and I am sticking with it. I don't want her to win and I hate stunt casting. I suspect she will win an HOH this week because she tends to win them when needed. And like the season when her sister won I would not be surprised if Pandora's Box or a DPV come along when she needs them. I can see Andy making it to the end with her and loosing because his playing all sides comes to light.

At this point to use one of my bosses favorite quotes "I hate them all equally" and have no favorite to win. I enjoy reading and listening to everyone's different viewpoints here.

See, this is fun. No name calling, and only a couple of people responding to silly, unfounded rumors. There's been a variety of opinions. It's almost like the old days.

Hoping for Judd or McCrae to win, but one thing you can almost set your watch by and that is that the Brenchel minions will see to it that Elissa wins the $25 Gs. Had they continued the MVP the way they had, she'd have most likely been the permanent MVP just because she's Rachel's sister. Go figure. Now I'm not saying I don't like Elissa, but America giving her the farm from jump street makes absolutely no sense.
