imageto compare and contrast how "BIG MOVES" are praised/valued/actually rewarded on survivor and big brother nowadays. both shows highly overvalue big moves and having some kind of "resume" yet time and again social bonds rule supreme yet nobody wants to say so and will label juries as bitter as a coverup before admitting it. (with the producers having a vested interest in doing so in order to have more exciting tv)

yet with big brother recently its weird because i feel like they want to have their cake and eat it too. ppl will yap and yap over bitter juries and big moves yet every (recent-ish) season all we get are these big mob alliances where the pecking order hardly ever gets strayed from and the biggest question is who will be the person to win hoh and do what everyone wants.

the bb producers are fine with this because it makes the show easier to edit (i think a producer on 18 posted online that they HATED 18 because it actually had power shifts and was hard to edit) so they will turn a non-move into some tv digestible storyline where they just gather a couple hours of footage in one day to get the tv storyline ready and then when they snap their fingers and the game is back on track ie the tyler situation last week

makes you wonder if survivor is as fake as current bb season (or at least if certain moments were manipulated more than we think)

idk im rambling idk if this is coherent or not (its just another excuse to trash bb obviously) but imma post the blog n e ways

I feel like it's...the opposite for Survivor in terms of editing? When one alliance is running the game they blatantly have to try and make some sort of manufactured suspense to make you think there's a possibility of something happening that isn't a pagonging (Redemption Island, South Pacific, Winners at War, et. al). But when it's a season with actual power shifts and whatnot it's a lot easier to craft a compelling narrative/storyline (The Rotu 4's downfall, the Heroes' downfall, etc.).

While I think there is definitely some fakeness in how Survivor is edited, and maybe possible idol rigging. I have yet to see rigging as blatant and obvious as modern day Big Brother.

Also I agree with your comment on the juries and big moves. I personally do not think there is ever anything as a bitter jury. The connotation implied with bitter juries is that the person who does not win, was the deserving winner and due to "hurt feelings" of the jury members they are robbed from a win they deserved. However each individual jury member as different requirements for what they see as a winner. People are vastly varied in real life therefore, a jury member who does not see lying, backstabbing, or big moves for the sake of big moves as honorable is not bitter. They are just may have a different criteria for what makes someone deserving of winning the game. I think that idea is more prevalent in Survivor.

koolness234 yea survivor is clearly more real but like specifically last week with the tyler situation we all SAW how tyler got pulled into the dr and the 2 hour hoh convo was blacked out and BAM tyler no longer quitting. i wonder if theres specific situations like that on survivor where we NEVER know something more was there because we dont have live feeds. that also applies to racist microaggressions too ive always wondered

and PREACH. whenever someone mentions a bitter jury i think to myself... a jury isnt just bitter out of thin air for no reason... someone MADE them bitter KNOWING the jury is the ONLY route to the WIN.
