I'm no fan of Big Brother Canada, but they have had a feature each of their two seasons that livened up the slower days of the week. Various people were given top secret tasks, and if they succeeded they (or the whole house) were given a reward.
Team America was clearly created as the US version of this concept, and it's been a failure from the beginning. The tasks have been stupid, and unlike the Canadian counterparts they have possibly compromised a house guest's game. Zach has been the Team America whipping boy, and while some of the antics have been entertaining, it really hasn't been in his best interests.
On paper, this week's Team America task could have been as harmless as the Canadian concept, but not when there is a vile creature such as Frankie in the house. To recap, Team America needed to steal an article of clothing from each of the cast and hide them. They were then to start a "Neighborhood Watch" to prevent more thefts in a 24 hour period. With the right people, this could have been fun, particularly since Team America was NOT supposed to assign the blame to anybody.
Over the last two days, the trio has been quietly grabbing items, and earlier today finished that part of the mission. The plan was to institute the second part later tonight, but unfortunately various people discovered the "thefts".
Almost immediately, the fun disappeared. A house meeting was called, and chaos erupted. Caleb was especially upset over his stolen cowboy boots, and the attention went to Victoria as the culprit. Caleb got in her face and began screaming at her.
The blame quickly moved to Zach, egged on by Frankie. It's ugly. It's hard to watch. I turned it off multiple times. It's the worst thing I've ever seen on Big Brother. Take Aaryn's bed-tossing incident times ten. Even when he's in a room alone with Zach, Frankie eggs it on, and adds sexual overtones to the action.
This is not a "I love Zach" post that says he's never allowed to be nominated or evicted. I have stated many times that I don't care who wins, but I don't like when production turns a blind eye to their own interference being used as justification for an eviction. The fact that Frankie continues to cross that boundary of taste could be described as sexual harassment. Imagine the uproar if it was one of the guy's pushing for oral sex from Nicole or Amber. That would not fly, but somehow Frankie is allowed to do it.
It's disgusting, and Frankie is easily the worst human being to ever be cast on the show.
