    Just 10 more days till the premiere on July 12.

    So who is in for another season?!?!

    I have better internet connection at home now so I might even get the feeds this year but I haven't decided one way or another.

    I know there will be twists, I just hope they aren't too lame.

    And we are all in agreement that we can talk about what's going on in "real time" ie no need for black spoiler tags!?

    :lol: It really is. It makes BB look like Survivor in comparison.

    Oh well, it's filler until BB actually starts. :p

    With a great commitment to Olympic watching coming up, I'm not sure I can watch Big Brother this year.

    Might tune in to the first episode to see if there is anyone I can stand- and then just read along.

    Yeah Olympic watching will make things more difficult this season so hopefully this thread will keep those watching the Olympics up to date. I will be on vacation for a week in early August so that will keep me from following both BB and the Olympics.

    I just can't believe that this is the 14 season of this show. Some things just never end!

    I can only hope someone is playing a joke and photoshopped her in, because I couldn't deal with her again. (That said, I don't watch Amazing Race, and don't know if she made any fans.)

    Agreed. Yes, with the Olympics, it will be hard to keep up. I guess I will become a couch potato! Usually I just record stuff and watch whenever, but not a good idea with BB or Olympics - too much. Hope this is a good season.

    I can't wait! With the Olympics, I will be mostly following online but that is typically how it goes for me, anyway. I tend to only watch evictions/HoH nights and the rest of the week I spoil it online. I hate the edit CBS gives as it is usually so far from the truth.

    Brandon and Rachel both have their pictures on the wall AND they are sitting around the table for what looks like a key ceremony. I can't believe they would have the current winner back on so soon so I hope this is some weird "test" run or something but who knows. I hate bringing people back but this would be such a joke.

    Thanks. :cheer:

    WTH Rachel again? :wall: :wall: :wall: I think that's her at the nomination table as well (are they practicing? Or is that a real nomination already?)

    Rachel & Brendon were invited to take part in the "Media Day" that happens every summer before the actual group gets locked in the house. I really doubt they will be on this season.

    Thanks! I also follow Joker's for the feed summaries, and Hamsterwatch for the snark. The board I follow is tvclubhouse - they can get a bit militant so you can't oversnark, but there are some good posters there and some fun discussions.

    Well they are in the pictures on the wall and sitting around the table during what looks like a key ceremony. I hope it was just staged for photos or something but that seems awfully fishy. It just can't be true...it just can't. I finally learned to like Rachel last year when it was clear she would win (and that CBS would do anything to make her win) but I don't want to try and see if that feeling will last.

    Is that the brother who is the father of the one who was on the show? If it is, I recall he was more like Russell, a hard gamer, and nothing like the troubled nephew.

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry that another Hantz has been cast on a CBS reality show. I guess Amazing Race will be next!

    I was watching HGTV last night and saw a commercial for a new show - 'Natural Born Sellers' - about some realtors. I actually had to rewind it, as it looks like a couple looking for a place to buy and yes it was Rachel and Brandon.

    I was looking at the site above and the picture of 'Willie' Hantz is not the brother of Russel/father of whats his name, but some young guy, long hair.

    TVCH is my favorite site. I've been a member there since 2000, including all other areas of the board.

    Yes, the moderation can be considered militant. But, it's really just a a matter of having a common sense of respect. You can not bash another poster, and that is a big reason it's a great place. Where it gets dicy is you have to choose your words carefully when discussing the houseguests. You can't diss them any more than you would a fellow poster. You can't call them names, or give them clever nicknames pertaining to how you feel about them. You can call them out on their behavior though, as long as you leave the namecalling on the cutting room floor. Follow those simple guidlines, and you'll get along famously there.

    I'll reserve judgement on the four returning players until I see who they are - there are a couple I would love to see again - but I do have a Major Objection based on the new cast.

    There's a Wil and a Willie, and a JoJo, Joe and Jodi. Seriously, how are the feedsters supposed to keep track of HOH, late night and whispered conversations when they potentially don't know who is being talked about, and how are the rest of us to keep track when they get it wrong??

    Flatfoote, I got several warnings from the mods at tvclubhouse during Jordan's first season!
