Default Big Brother (U.S.) 19

Cast Reveal

An entirely newbie cast! 11 of 16 players over the age of 25! 5 over the age of 30! This doesn't seem like Big Brother at all.

I dunno...this cast doesn't look terrible. I don't expect CBS to suddenly start casting Big Brother with Survivor-level game players or a majority of strong players like Dan, Will, and Vanessa. But it does seem like they are trying to go beyond people who are barely old enough to drink, looking to just spend a summer sitting around trying to get laid. That is somewhat encouraging.

I don't typically like labeling things "guilty pleasures", but as far as I'm concerned, this is the one show that qualifies. And I'm guilty as ****.

Bringing someone who made Final Two is a no-go for you, but you'd be fine with someone getting a third attempt at the game? lol 'kay.

It wasn't Paulie or James, so I can live with it.

The old guy had the right idea taking the money, because it's only a matter of time before he gets phased out.

Da'vonne sucks as a player but is so entertaining to watch. Might as well bring her back for a 500th time.

Though I'd rather no vets return.

Primal is PISSED!

I will never understand what you find entertaining about someone who screams canned lines, fed by production, into the camera. Granted, Paul also screams canned lines, but at least they are his own conconcotions.

I'm actually okay with Paul's return. He is funny, chaotic, has a very fluid strategy. Unlike Da'Vonne, who exists to be production's mouthpiece, but has no value to the game because she sucks at it, Paul makes things more entertaining and makes the game more interesting.

Also, not for nothing, Paul easily played the best game last season. And he did it with no knowledge or understanding of the game. He was a recruit and tried to watch old seasons in sequester and couldn't make it past a couple episodes. Yet he still played the best game. Albeit, a very flawed one that was the best on the merit of everyone else sucking. My point being, the fact that he can do what he did last year, while virtually never being in the majority (at least not a stable majority) and having no experience with the game indicates a natural inclination for it. Now that he knows the game, he could potentially play it masterfully. It could be the best game since Father Dan's BB14 performance. I am excited by the notion of that.

God, what is this show's obsession with mixing vets and newbs in the same season? Nobody in the fanbase seems to like it so just stop it already! At least Paul was more tolerable in this episode than he was most of last season. As long as he tones it down a few decibels and doesn't screech about "friendship" at every opportunity I'll manage.

Cody was hilarious, especially the way he refused to beg Paul for one of those dumb bracelets. He seems over the experience already; why did he even come on the show?

I think its pretty clear from his pre-game interview with Big Jeff that he is playing a character. He wants to be the villain, the snarky jerk. Mind you, he is doing it very well, so I am totally on board. I much prefer the villains like Dr. Will, Matt Hoffman, or Dan who know that they are villains and own it rather than someone like Paulie or Frankie Grande who lack any type of self-awareness. My only critique is that he probably should've kissed Paul's ass. I get that he wants to play the apathetic "Paul doesn't impress me" villain, but he only hurts himself by not sucking up. In that moment, Paul held all of the cards. And even thinking long term, you know production is going to do what it takes to protect their investment. Why, on night one, would you alienate the guy who has complete power at the moment? It was a case of cutting off his nose to spite his face.

As to why production mixes vets and newbies . . . well, at this point, since the first time they did it (season 11), they have done it in more seasons than they haven't. Its just part of the show. It is what it is. Fans *****, but let's face it . . . the best season of Big Brother is 14. It is the best season largely because of the returnees. I think fan reaction is just a matter of who they pick.

Personally, I find Paul to be entertaining and a fairly decent player, so I really don't mind it. Plus, with only one of him in the house, it is a manageable advantage for the newbies to handle. Plus, I thought the friendship bracelet was a great idea that caused some early drama, gave us a lot of insight into the new players (how they campaigned said a lot about them), and created a good sense of suspense and tension for the viewer. So I appreciate that it was done in a fairly unique and interesting way.

I want Paul gone but Cody is just straight up annoying. No charm.

Though I am not THAT sad that Megan is up since her whole "I hate girls cause blah blah blah" wasn't exactly endearing.

lol Josh is awful at this.

Cody's got a weird vibe, but his take on Josh last night during the intros was spot on. If he's pulling this stuff week one, he'll burn out quick.

I am not sure what it is about Cody but his blandness/seriousness is just so over the top I find it funny. I love it when they show him having conversations with other people and it's like awkward dead air. His comment to Megan at the nomination ceremony how he hates her was funny as well

Supposedly she accused Jessi of saying something racist about Alex, and then quit when it was revealed to be fake.


I continue to love Cody's undying hatred of Paul.

Josh is an unstable basketcase. What a casting find!

When Nicole reentered the house I was terrified she'd be a returning contestant a la Paul. I'm not sure I could watch another season of her since she made my blood boil.

I'm shaken by how much Jessica looks like Gigi Gorgeous with dark hair and roughly 15% less cosmetic surgery.

Alex won the veto. I'm kinda loving her especially when she told Cody he can eat sh-t during the comp at the first ep.


And WTH?! Mark is actually ok... I'm very surprised by that.
