You are right people only want to see it when it's against ppl they don't like but the truth is it's nothing new..."Reality" TV is far from actual reality...It's about ratings and producers have always tried to influence right down to dating shows etc...I just wish lately they wouldn't make it SO obvious...Again though Grodner's right hand is a former producer for WWE I guess that explains it all to me lmao...
I didn't read all of this tbh, but any sort of rigging or any type of advantage given to any player by production is in clear violation with the ethics of reality television, and the FCC would shit themselves if they knew the type of stuff that went on in Big Brother.
luckily for Grodner the FCC can't be bothered with some show that only airs every summer and only targets one specific group of people
I do understand that they do need to add drama to the game, but keeping one person in the game this long makes it obnoxious. Now frank will win hoh, and then some how some way he will get a secret power in pandoras box. It's bs.
I see that maybe the first eviction keeping frank oppose to Kara was good for ratings, but after saving him time and time again it makes it ridiculous. It's making me hate the show. They could have had the eviction and then reset the game. Shane had power that week and big brother ruined it, even if he could win hoh again.
I do think for ratings the duo twist was amazing, since it was pandoras box it wasnt fully rigged.
I think the secret powers are very unfair. The powers shouldn't give someone the opportunity to rename the renom, its completely unfair to the hoh, esspecially if they cant be in the next hoh comp.
there has been only 2 endurance pov comps TBH
the rachel and jordan one which was obv rigged and BB8 3rd or 2nd veto, when Dick, Jen, Kail, etc had to stand on a log with a glass on the top of their hats and watch the other houseguest trying to make them laugh but im sure that was not rigged :X
I read the whole blog, and it is EXCELLENT. One of your examples, the one with rachel and jordan, is always a common example I use to exhibit how big brother rigs it. Also, notice how in that pov competition that rachel won to save both her and jordan was EXTREMELY similiar to the first HoH competition that rachel won, hence why BB did it.
but the one brendon won in BB12 was probably rigged for him to win it too.
Also, I saw a couple youtube videos about how the contestants would admit to the manipulation the DR would do to them to get them to vote a certain way. Chima admitted to this. Jen from BB8 told Dick that the DR was also trying to get her to vote a certain way. But i do understand why the producers would do it.
You're absolutely right, but again, that really doesn't justify it. I have pretty much come to terms with the fact that BB isn't exactly fair, but I still love it, just for, as you said, the drama. But I know that it is NOT a fair fight at all, and that's okay.
That's why I have Survivor. I mean, yes, some of the seasons fall a little flat, and sometimes the winner of Survivor was a coattail rider and not the deserving winner, but that's because the game was fair and none of the fan favorites/underdogs were given preference. With Big Brother, all that is thrown out the window, which I'm fine with, I just wish more people would stop trying to fucking compare Big Brother to Survivor. They're not even in the same fucking league. Watch Big Brother for the drama but strategy-wise, it really pales in comparison to Survivor.
ianfitz0012 and righttocensor, of course that is another perfect example. i was just writing all of this off the top of my head and didn't think about that one. i'd add it in, but if i were going to include every single example of producer rigging, i'd never be finished writing.
