I mostly use the feeds for endurance comps and when nothing else is on tv. If I'm at home and see on my twitter feed that something is heating up, I'll turn it on.  But just the fact that they take them down irritates me. And we really would have no recourse to demand money back, I haven't read the terms and agreements but I guarantee there's something in there about it, plus since they took over the feeds themselves, CBS can just claim you are paying for All Access and there is plenty of content room choose from.

Regardless whether you use them all the time or some of the time, you are still paying for the privilege to watch it at YOUR leisure, not theirs. They have their little disclaimers all over the place that the feeds can be down "from time to time" and blah, blah, blah, which we get for certain situations, but an endurance comp should NEVER be that type of situation in my opinion. And if they had thought this twist out a bit better, they could have handled it in a way where we would not be losing so much of it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending themat all, ito just I know how their mind works. And they know they can get away with it, I can guarantee they won't lose many subscribers over it. You and me bitch about it every year, and then come June, we buy them again. I think since they changed it from $25 for the seasom, to $5.99 a month, people look at it different. I mean, I could get pissed and cancel now, but I don't because for $6 a month, I don't want to miss if something good happens. Even if I were to cancel right now, I guarantee you that the very next endurance comp, I'm signing right back up. This is what they bank on

You are absolutely right, they have us over a barrel. And no they won't lose too many people over it. But maybe they should stop and think that they might gain a few viewers when a big endurance comp (which I am assuming it will be) comes up especially when it is tied a returning player and such. But, that is logical thinking, something they very seldom think about.

But there is a flaw with that thinking to get more viewers. When one initially signs up, the two weeks are free should you decide to cancel within that timeframe. This would mean that to hold onto those viewers, they need to go a full two weeks of keeping the feeds interesting without pulling any of their feeds are down crap. Sure, a new viewer may sign up just to see the endurance comp live, but then start to get irritated when they constantly cut out. The nit wont take long at all come Sat, when the feeds are down for another 4-6 hours for the veto comp and all that other stuff.

The way I figure it, I only buy it because the feeds are so cheap. ( I know, whats cheap to me is not cheap to all, but it is what it is)

Yeah, I forgot about the free 2 weeks thing, but I am also thinking many people will forget about it until they get billed that $6 anyway.

It is cheap entertainment for me too. But more than that it is an obsession that I look forward too all year long, so I am sure I would pay for it if the price was higher (within reason of course) too.

So they are down already so we will not get to see any attempts to flip the house for the rest of the day. This is just ridiculous. Frank was planning on making his move to save Tiff today, now all we will get to see on his attempts is what they decide to show us. I'm even wondering if tonights eviction will even be live

Well at the end of last night's show they said "find out live" so I think the eviction will be live.

As far as the flipping of the vote, I think that is over. Nicole and Corey basically told Frank they did NOT have the votes. He continued to push it and asked Nicole to talk to Michelle and such. They tried to tell him that even if people tell him they are okay with it, they really aren't and they don't want a mess of fall out like last week.

Then this morning Frank told Paulie that the others were looking to Paulie for the blessing of sending Day out instead of Tiff, but Paulie is not biting. His ego won't let him bite on it. Short of some sort of blow up bullshit happening today and Day shooting herself in the foot, I believe that ship has sailed, but of course I have been wrong before.

Absolutely because you know that production is going to add a bunch of the negotiations and discussions that happened earlier in the week together to make it look like they almost flipped it last minute and we will never know what happened. We also won't be able to see who Frank holds responsible for NOT flipping the vote. It all just pisses me off to be honest. IF this is a regular live show, there is NO REASON the feeds had to be down for the entire day like this!

Apparently they have gone up and down as normal, they just decided to puttheir little message out there now to prepare people for when they go down and don't come back until tomorrow. Note how their little note says MIGHT be down

Here's another thing that pisses me off about the feeds going down until after the Friday show. We are going to miss the entire fallout of the returnee going back into the house. Any reaction and potting to send them right back out, we will be at the mercy of the edit and will not be able to see any of it.

At the very least, keep it blacked out for now, but after the Friday show, make the flashback for that time period available so we can go back and see it. Of course you know that's not going to happen though.

I didn't bother to look at it since it said the feeds would be down this afternoon, but looks like I didn't miss much. Looks like Corey and Nicole handled the vote flipping issue quite well because Frank is right back on their good side and Tiffany knows that they tried to keep her in the house. Day on the other hand just might be eating a little crow with that good-bye message. I am surprised she did that since they have been speculating about the returning person.

I am completely on board with your idea about making the flashback available to us, but we know that it won't happen. They could also have just kept the hg's in the dark about why there is no HOH comp, let them speculate for 24 hours about it WITH THE FEEDS ON. Then they could have the battle back comp and tape it (which they probably have already done the first 3 rounds) for tomorrow's show by putting them in the HOH room for lockdown again. Then let the returnee go back into the house LIVE and start the HOH comp LIVE and bring up the feeds at that point. But of course that would be too logical and too much of a benefit to the live feeders and fans of the show. Geez, they really need some new people in that production department that can think like a viewer and/or live feeder!

I'm just starting tonight's episode but heard about Day's goodbye message. Even Dick had a great tweet. How funny would it be if Tiffany comes back, Day gets evicted next week and Tiffany gives her the very same goodbye message? I think I'd piss my pants laughing

Great minds think alike Ctown! When I heard the message that was my first thought. Just think if she comes back AND wins HOH! She could start singing then and keep singing it all week long!

It was Dicks tweet, not my thought. Can't wait to see Dicks show tonight, I know you don't care for him, but Enzo will be on. He always has good insight. Still waiting for Boogie to get on. I'm sure Dick will have a lot to say about the end of the twists and such as well as bitching about the edits

Yeah, I know you said it was Dick's tweet, but it was just easier to say you posted it without further explanation.

I know you are a fan of Enzo (I am not), but stating he has great insight? Isn't that a bit of a stretch? In the game I didn't really see evidence of hat insight, I saw him riding coattails of other people. He was behind flipping things on Matt as the first brigade casualty because he thought he was in too good of a spot and such, but I just don't get what you see in Enzo as a player. He was entertaining and made me laugh, but I just don't see the game play from you that you obviously do. :facepalm:

Well I guess it is up to me to be the pro voice here, because I loved it. I don't think Vanessa Ooops I mean Tiffany will not win a battle back and if she does then yeah Mad6 Embarassed she done fucked up but I think it is highly unlikely.

I would like to see Victor come back in because I think he realizes his mistake and he has a clear target in Paulie, and thoes two will take strikes at each other and miss constantly causing everyone else in the house to get evicted....lol

Here played the ultimate under the radar game. Many people don't like that strategy but he played it to perfection. Was never really in any danger, never pissed anyone off and rode that all the way to final 3. Flipping on Matt at the time was absolutely the right move. It was obvious Matt would be flipping soon so it was time to cut him loose. He also came up with the Brigade strategy to all branch off into side alliances. I know you think it was Matt that came up with that aliance, but Hayden and Lane both corroborate Enzoso version.

Not to mention the fact, you can't determine someone's insight based on their season. For example, Austin was horrible in the hiuse, but on the show he actually offers some great insight. Even Parker from season 9, who is a regular on the show, offers good insight.

Yes, under the radar for sure. He never won anything, and I am not saying you have to win comps to navigate the game, but he was very, very lucky he had the people he had to align with or he would have been out very early in the game.

Matt came into the house with the idea of the brigade having some brains, brawn, social, etc. in the group and not really hang out together. Not panic and just try to keep each other informed of different sides of the house. I do remember Enzo being the one who said they should all have a side person, so the branching out was his idea, but in my opinion the original idea of the group was Matt's, so that is why I gave him credit for that. As far as the flipping, I do agree that it was a good move for Enzo at the time, but I don't think Matt was planning on flipping on them that soon. I think he intended to go to the final 4 with those guys and battle it then, because he was better at comps (other than the all out physical ones) than the others in the group so he could have won his way to the final chairs. But, that is just my opinion of course. Enzo just rubs me the wrong way because of the cheating while a have not and never being penalized for it and he basically just hitched himself to others to get through the game. So we will agree to disagree about Enzo.

I will agree with you that people could have insight into the happenings such as DR manipulation and the actual inner workings of the house, but I guess because I don't respect his game, I wouldn't think he would be very insightful. But, since I have not watched the show and heard any of these people talk about it, I guess I can't really disagree your assessment can I? :raspberries:

Matt came into the house with the idea of the brigade having some brains, brawn, social, etc. in the group and not really hang out together.  Not panic and just try to keep each other informed of different sides of the house.  I do remember Enzo being the one who said they should all have a side person, so the branching out was his idea, but in my opinion the original idea of the group was Matt's, so that is why I gave him credit for that.

You have CBS all access. Go back and watch episode 2 of season 12. It was 100% Enzos plan. It starts with him talking to Hayden about it, then he stated he wanted to bring in Matt for the brains, and Lane for the muscle. I know CBS edits things, but remember, this was also back when people actually openly talked in DR.

As far as him being very very lucky to have people to align with, isn't that's what you're supposed to do in the house? Form your alliances? That's exactly what he did, and by doing so, he didn't have to worry about winning comps, just relied on his social game, althiuh, there was a time when he absolutely needed to win veto to stay in the game, and he did just that. It was the Otev comp when he plowed over Ragan on his way to winning.

THR caught up with executive producer Allison Grodner to get the scoop on what's going down during the show's first ever "Battle Back."

Big Brother season 18 is hitting the small screen for a fourth time this week. Why is that? The redemption fueled twist called, "Battle Back" has its own episode airing Friday night.

What can super fans expect in the special episode? Well, The Hollywood Reporter tracked down executive producer, Allison Grodner, to find out. The brains behind Big Brother is swamped this week with producing four episodes, but before the episode airs THR got Grodner to tease tonight's twist.


Can you give a fun preview of the Battle Back episode? Can you tease what some of the competitions will look like?


The battle back is a first for Big Brother. Having the evicted house guests go head to head in competitions for a second chance at the half million is definitely dramatic and a lot of fun. The competitions are just as big as the ones the house guests play weekly with new twists and turns we haven't seen before. Each of the battles will be nail biters... this is a special event and the first time we have four nights of big brother in one week.  

Will it be a mix of endurance and mental competitions?

The battle back competitions are part physical and part mental. Everyone has a fair chance at winning. It all comes down to having the right strategy and how bad you want it.  

Take this how you want, but for me it confirms my suspicion that it will be 4 different comps.


Quote :
I’m guessing these competitions weren’t filmed in the backyard due to the secrecy of the twist. Where and how did you film them in order to keep the twist hidden from the house guests?


All will be clear when you see the show [tonight] Smile

I think it's pretty clear it was in the backyard, just look at the pics, not to mention all the lockowns that have been happening.  No idea why she has to be evasive on this.


Quote :
Out of the first five evicted house guests, what do they all have in common? Were you surprised by which players got voted out early?

The first five evicted with the exception of Glenn were probably some of the more naive players. They were either clueless about being targets or had aligned with the wrong people early in the game. Both Jozea and Victor made early targets of themselves by being too confident and telling everyone who they were gunning for.


And in related breaking news, water is wet




Quote :
Which players are currently big targets for whoever may be winning the Battle Back and returning? Is there a mutual target?

Each player has their own target and strategy if they win their way back into the house. It should be fun to see how they change up their game and how much old baggage plays into their new strategies.

Like she doesn't already know who she had the comps designed for


Quote :
Up until the Battle Back competitions the evicted house guests were in sequester. How do you think they mentally handled the anticipation of getting to play again?

Since the evicted house guests have been sequestered and cut off from the outside world, they have had nothing to do but mentally and physically prepare themselves for battle. Each one is definitely pumped and ready.

I think the only one that will be truly ready is Victor.  Jozea just assumes he can win anything because he is the Messiah.  Even in this comp pictured against Glenn, he was quoted as saying something to the effect of "So he can walk on logs, I'm the Messiah and can walk on water."  I think Glenn beats Jozea but is likely to run out of steam.  And Bronte is just Bronte, no chance of winning a comp.  Tiffany hasn't even been gone 24 hours, no real time to prep.




Quote :
Out of Paulie and Tiffany, which house guest is playing the most like their sibling? Why?

Other than being a bit paranoid and a bit emotional, Tiffany is actually playing differently from Vanessa. Because of her lineage, she was targeted from the beginning and has been forced into playing an aggressive game. Not sure Vanessa would have called out Frank in an eviction speech so early in the game but her new friendship with the enemy may just keep her in the house.

Hmmm, curious how she didn't even mention Paulie in her answer


Quote :
Which house guest currently has the best shot at winning the game and who has the best shot at “America’s Favorite House Guest"?

Too early to tell. We still have over half a summer left and anything can happen.

Just get rid of this thing already.  Its obvious that's all James is playing for is AFP, just like Frankie last season, eliminate and you eliminate a strategy and make these people actually play to win money


Quote :
This summer is 99 days, will there be a possible returning juror twist, also?

You never know...

Like I've stated before, I think we will see some form of a rewind, or a non-eviction week

I have to agree with ctown it is kind of obvious the battle backs are going to be the HOH comps they didn't get to participate in.

Side note: is it really 99 days? (BB that is, I never realized it...lol)

Well Victor returned to the house, which is really no surprise to me. I think they did a good job with recycling the HOH comps that none of them participated in previously, so I was a little more fair. That being said, Glenn had NO CHANCE of winning that berry comp. He would have had a better chance at the pictures comp since he is a former cop since they are trained to see detail. But let's face it, they didn't want him back I the house anyway.

Bronte was just plain stupid. How can you expect to win that comp by just randomly switching out the pictures when you don't know how many you have right or wrong? If either of them had just taken their time and looked for the answer to each question and get it correctly, they would have breezed through it.

I thought Tiff was going to pull out that comp at the end, but then she spent more time looking at Vic's board rather than working on her own. And I can't believe they BOTH put the Festival banner in the second row! That was stupid on both their parts. I thought Vic had really screwed up not working on the show times as they were going along and would have trouble guessing at the end, but they must have been repeated over and over or something.

Was it my imagination or did Paul seem not too happy to see Victor? He had a look like OMG he is going to screw up my game again. Paulie (the one who never gets nervous) looked nervous as hell. That smile and laugh were pretty fake for sure.

I was surprised they allowed Tiff to convey information to Vic after the comp was over. She told him to trust Frank and don't trust Day. Good advice if Frank WANTS to work with Victor.

Now I am curious when are they going to do the HOH comp? I would think they would have to have already did it because they have to get noms done in short order for Sunday's episode.

And why the hell do we have to wait 3 hours after the Battle Back episode for the feeds to return? Chances are Victor went back into the house last night anyway, so why not immediately following the show?

I haven't seen it yet as I'm still at work. Its really not a surprise to many that Victor won his way back. I guess I was wrong about it beingTiffany.

As far as to why they are waiting for the feeds, it's because they want to wait until it airs on the west coast for some reason. Feeds should be coming on right around when I get home from work, but I doubt I'll be watching right away, still need to watch tonights episode, and I'm sure Dick At Nite will be up by then as well.

I'm not so certain when Victor actually came back. Remember, if the comp was played in the actual house or backyard, the HG's need to go into lockdown while it's built and the comp takes place. I'm sure it was very shortly after that, that he re-entered the house. Now if the HoH hasn't been played by the time the feeds come back, it will need to be played at some point tomorrow and they will need to move everything back a day. Veto is normally on Sat and it would need to be Sunday and so on.

Now I'm wondering if the HoH will be an endurance comp or what kind of comp it will be. I will be pissed if its an endurance that the feeders get screwed out of seeing again.
