eek probably 4 years too long lmao!
nah, even though there's bad times and ups and downs, the good outweighs the bad. i've made some friendships that will truly last a life time and i'm grateful for that :) there's too much negativity on this site sometimes, so i tend to hide in my own little corner of tengaged and try to spread good vibes when possible. i've never won stars or hunger, nor do i really care to :x but i feel like i've "accomplished" a good amount on the site and have enjoyed myself for the majority of the 5 years lol :D
why/how i joined - was a slow time at work and i googled "big brother game"...made an account, joined a fastings that took ages to fill so i had no clue what was going on, went out to lunch, and came back to getting voted out for 5th :p
first friends - underwzc music eagle16
first gift - from jessem & to brianc
first frat - omg was it called united? eek ider but matty1982 was pres...then i went on to make #tenacioustengagers (who remembers?!) and #sophrosyne (love y'all!)
first person to meet irl - claud
first shop - kara's kloset https://tengaged.com/shop/karas-kloset_104345 lol
if you're my friend, please know i'm so glad we've shared good times! and if you're a foe, hopefully we can change that sometime <3
THANKS FOR 5 YEARS WOWWWW!
(also, charity happening so place your bets https://tengaged.com/bet/180979 )
Sometimes it feels like 20 years lol :p
I've had good times and bad times just like anyone else, but I've met some truly amazing and interesting people from all over the world!!
Who remembers #tenacioustengagers?!? After that chaos I created #sophrosyne which has been my home for almost 3 years and love everyone in it!
Shoutout to music who was my very first friend and has been with me on my entire journey :)
underwzc one of my first fasting pals that I can remember, heyyy!
My adopted son, njkoda1998! You're going to do such great things in life :)
Love my sisters from another mister marieeve, jsylvia76 & mouseter09!
Bubba irandomal123 (:

15 awesome months
1 year as number 1 frat
It has been so fun and an absolute amazing experience running a frat but I think it’s time for a change! I’ve started to get bored of it and I feel we need a fresh start where we can all feel closer again.
I started my own frat over a year ago after spending many months in 2 wonderful frats #TenaciousTengagers and #Sophrosyne with an awesome frat leader K4r4k. These frats gave me the drive to make my own! Shoutout to Joshlyn34 for making it for me many months ago!
I wanted the frat to be ‘making friend’ orientated for people on the site who felt they didn’t have many friends or any groups that they felt they belonged to. This was because I was lucky enough to meet two lovely people Lewisc and Magge555550101 in one of my first games who were very supportive and helpful and I realised the importance of friends on here to keep you around on the site! I wanted it to be a sort of ‘home frat’ with a family vibe and that we all watched out for each other, and that is what it has been!
It has been an absolute blast and #Affinity has definitely been a big part of my experience on this site. There have been so many memories and friendships founded in it and it’s been a wonderful chance to meet new people who have joined and left us along the way, thank you for being a part of it! There has been some sh*t times in the frat also, we’ve had our fair share of drama and what I feel some undeserved hate too. We’ve won 3 star seats (OOPS!!) and have had a few funny calls!
A big shoutout to the original members, your loyalty is unbelievable and I really wanna thank you for sticking by the frat and I through all this time, you guys are angels!
So what next? I’m going to make a new frat eventually and I’ll invite all the remaining active people to join. We hope it’ll remain smaller and that this way our bond as a frat will be tighter and the feeling of closeness within the frat that we once had will return:)
Sorry it’s a long blog! xx
im going to start doing a blog series for people on the site. they wont know im writing about them until i post the blog (therefor it's a surprise). i will have "wonderful woman wednesdays" and "magnificent man mondays". the point of these is just to have more positivity on the site :)
for volume 1 i have chosen to write about none other than OLIVIAXOXO!!!
i've personally known the livster since she joined the site, which was december 26, 2013. she was such a lil bundle of joy - wanting to interact with everyone and learn the games. she's been a member of both my frats, #tenacioustengagers & #sophrosyne before creating a happy home of her own, #affinity!
liv and i have had our ups and downs throughout the almost 2 years of knowing each other, but i finally grew up and decided there was nothing to stop me from getting to know her better and being the type of friend she deserves :)
people all over tengaged #loveliv! her friends describe her as "effervescent," "a peach," "lovely" & simply "amazing." she's definitely one of a kind and her beauty shines inside and out.
when polling some of her closest pals, this is how they answered my questions...
1. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY OF/WITH HER?
smoothstalker12: our three hour call together or just any call!
brenla: Always joining castings with her when we both were noobs and she wanted me so badly that I had to give her my snapchat so she could see my face but it took her about 2 months before she finally sent her cute face :)
lewisc: Ahh so many! I think meeting her for the first time, that was a special day!
tyler93: Summer talks, calls, RTA, rookies domination
2. IF YOU COULD SPEND AN ENTIRE DAY WITH #OLIVIAXOXO WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
#tyler93: London day trip. Big Ben, buckingHAM palace, London eye, whatever else there is to show me in London
#brenla: LOADS OF SEX..IT WOULD NEVER STOP..jk I would take her wherever because we always have a random conversation and it usually ends with us fighting but its always funny and never serious.
#lewisc: This is tough! I'm looking forward to having a proper night out in Cardiff which ends with plenty of spooning and potential forking :$
#smoothstalker12: First get the promised headlock, take lots of snapchats to make everyone else jealous, argue about crisps vs chips and probably just walk/drive around talking the entire day :) only time will tell though #London2k17
3. IF YOU AND #OLIVIAXOXO WERE ON A DESERTED ISLAND, WHAT 3 THINGS WOULD YOU WANT TO HAVE WITH YOU?
#lewisc: Hairbrush (for me, not her), Calvin & cocktails
#smoothstalker12: 1. A bucket of KFC we can share :$
2. A deck of cards so she can lie about not knowing how to play poker and always beat me
3. Her Mum because we both love her and we couldn't survive on our own
#tyler93: sheep, orange Terry's,..
Finally I've reached one of my biggest goals on tengaged! Its been a long time coming and I took a few breaks but I finally bought TV Star! I kinda like this number tbh. When I joined tengaged back in July 2010 I got to see BioDork become the first TV star on the site. Then I bought yellow :p
Special shoutout to my charity helpers, all the friends I've ever made, and my three frats #TenaciousTengagers #Sophro #Affinity
I dont tag anyone because if I dont tag people they get pissed off and thats not what this is about ;)
Thanks for an amazing journey, now here's to me finally being able to go for a shop, and to 2000 more karma!
So I have been on this site for a year and 2 months. Originally I was a member of a frat called United and after being there for 4 months I decided I HAD A DREAM ^_^ lol, I wanted to create a frat of my own - a frat that would be fun and organized and have members who were genuinely loyal and understood what being a friend meant.
On June 23, 2013 I created Tenacious Tengagers (I have a thing for alliteration)!
It was small at first but grew and grew and grew until it reached the #1 spot on tengaged on December 6, 2013. It was exciting to be #1. No, it didn't mean we were the best but I felt like I accomplished something. I felt like I created a really nice place that felt like home because most of the members feel like family to me. And you can say that sounds dumb but it's how I feel.
Well, in the past few months TT has become kinda chaotic. In getting so big, not every member joined for the right reasons. People joined for stars support, because it was #1, have a large group to plus their spam, etc. Also people just thinking rules don't apply to them and being rude to others. Being in a frat shouldn't bring you down or cause stress - it should make you smile & add to your experience on the site. It's true no matter what frat you are in you will have drama and every member will never have all the stars they are supposed to have. Such is life. BUT I've decided I want a fresh start. I am going to start a new, smaller frat.
That being said, I may be getting some hateful words thrown my way but I am only going to be starring in people who I KNOW to be loyal, don't cause problems, are active, know how to have fun, don't act like a straight up ass to other people on the site and can follow a few simple rules. Not everyone in TT will be in the new frat. That would defeat the purpose :x
Tenacious Tengagers was a wonderful frat. It was home to many. At the end of the day whether we're in the same frat with people doesn't define our friendships. I have and will maintain friendships with people who were a part of it and made the frat such a wonderful experience.
Thanks for some amazing memories! Now moving on to a new chapter ^_^
#tenacioustengagers < 3
(pic is the original art used for the frat) :)
I can't keep this up anymore...everything's crumbling out from under me, so i'm going to finally tell everyone the truth for once. I am 5 months pregnant. I am a lesbian. My ex wife left me, got with an underage woman, and is trying to take my children away from me. I am from Sydney, Australia, I am 21, and I am currently back in college.
But here's the truth and nothing but the truth.
My name isn't Amber McCrackin. And my skype picture is not me.
That's the only lie I ever told.
And here's the reasons why.
When I began on this site...I had such a low confidence, that I thought no one would ever talk to me. No one would ever befriend me. I thought if someone knew my life and my mistakes, they would never like me anymore. But then when I started telling people about me, they surprised me and fell in love with me. But then it was too late...and they already thought I was Amber. I was trapped with no way out for a while.
But everyone is convincing me to just tell the truth for once.
My name is Michelle Taylor.
Not Amber McCrackin.
Maybe one day i'll be ready to show what I really look like, but..i'm not ready.
But i'm happy i'm finally able to tell all of you the truth. I'm going to try to send this to everyone I know, and I just have one last thing to say.
Please don't hate me...
I know I lied to you guys for a while...but...I love you guys so much...
I never meant to hurt anyone, I just got trapped and didn't know how to get out of it.
I love you all...
And thank you for loving who I really am, even though you thought my name was something else.
so from time to time i get criticized for running a "cult" on here. i love my frat and the people in it, so getting a mail like this really made my day! it's so nice that someone else can take the time out of their day to compliment someone/a group of people. so thank you davelooney :) you're a good guy & i appreciate this. posting this as a blog so the rest of my family (#tenacioustengagers) can read your kind words < 3
Just want to say
Feb 16, 2014 18:23:12
I just want to say you do a really good job organizing and stuff with your frat. You have a lot of very nice people in your frat. Almost every person I have played with and is from the Tenacious Tengagers are super nice despite all the craziness of the gameplay. I really don't know how they are so nice! They just are! Great job!
So my first charity (my 100th) was a huge success. Was mildly worried it wouldn't be since I remain pretty aloof on the site and am not that close with many of you. Congrats to the bettors and I wanted to give a huge shout out to everyone that supported me and helped me achieve this.
me2013 : we'd never met and to my knowledge you aren't friends with anyone in the game but you still joined to help. Uou're a sweet heart!
MarieEve : You got 12th which surprised me as you told everyone it was one of your last games. I gave you my 0 fyi. you'll be missed while you're gone.
Magge555550101 : From F2 in our survivor tribe to the charity, we talked a good amount. You're a strong competitor in survivor, and I'd love to play with you again in the near future. I consider you my newest t-friend.
Scotton215 : From being in the final 3 in the survivor tribe together to my charity, we saw each other a lot last week for people that had never spoken. You were a nice guy and I enjoyed meeting you, thanks for your help.
BBCanada : You were in the survivor tribe right before the charity too, and you were more active than some of the othersThanks for your help.
Claud : Clauddddd. We've played together a solid amount and always make small talk but that's the extent of it. Didn't surprise me that you joined, as I've seen you help out in multiple charities over my time on tengaged.
bowkane : Jeff, another #tenacioustengagers member I know of but haven't really spoken too. You seemed like a lot of fun and I'm thankful for your help.
massgustavo95 : Massssss, thanks for the help man! I had never met you before or even seen you around to be honest, so I was glad you were able to stick around for a little bit so I could get to know you a tiny bit better. Appreciate your help.
k4r4k : Karebear nothing I can say that I haven't before. Ya know i love you. Thanks for helping me run the charity successfully.
woeisme : So glad you could join, havent seen you in forever. Always a good time, I dig your humor mate.
Tyler93 : Sad you got banned so I couldn't get to know ya better, but thanks for the help!
solinne64 : You are awesome for doing anything I asked to help me when you dont even know me, glad we get could you top 3 as a reward :)
had to edit this because it was too long. Sigh. But thank you all x10000 you were awesome.
hello tengaged world :)
today, february 8th, is my one year anniversary with the site!!! last year on this day i was bored at work. it was a friday and i had finished up everything i needed to work on so i, like many others, googled "big brother game" and it brought me to this website. i created an account and joined my first fastings. i was the 2nd person to join and chatted with the other person there a bit. a couple more joined but by that time it was lunch time, so my co-worker and i headed out for lunch and i kind of forgot about the game. once i returned to the office my browser was still up and i noticed the game was still happening and i was still in it lol. i ended up getting 5th, gratefully, since i didn't even play the entire game :p
since then, i have really become addicted to this site. yes, there are a few bad times but there are even more good. i have had many fun conversations with people and enjoyed making friendships, even if they are only online. i feel like i've accomplished a lot - having a couple of shops, having a successful frat, two second places in stars and even though i've been sky level for 6 months i've had the karma for tv star for quite some time. hopefully i can accomplish a few additional things this next year and meet some more awesome people.
there's honestly so many people i could give a shout out to or thank but it wont allow me to tag that many people lol! so let me tag some that have really helped me along the way and i feel very close to, even if we don't always talk as often as i'd like anymore. i love you & thanks for a great first year on tengaged ^_^
To my dearest Kara k4r4k
I don't know what I can possibly say that can describe how thankful I am to you. I never joke around when I call Tenacious Tengagers my family, because they are my family. I remember, I didn't even know who you were until I messaged you, but i'm SO glad that I did.
Kara, you are the kindest, bravest, sweetest, coolest, sexiest, kinkiest, awesomest (Thats not even a word), bestest friend in this entire world that I could ever ask for.
I don't know why I got so lucky to have you as a friend, but I just wanted to do something to show you just how much you mean to me :)
I love you so so so much!
With much love from Sydney Australia,
Glad I got starred back into Tenacious Tengagers :) it's good to be back :D
Just some people I remember having a fun time in games with :) If I didn't mention you it's nothing personal.
Also thank you dav_o_79 for inviting me to join your frat but I really wanted back into TT. It was fun playing with you though and I hope it happens more often :D
I have only been in this frat for maybe a week, and this frat makes you feel like family.
Talking to this frat makes me feel like im in a tengaged family.
Tenacious Tengagers is such a royal frat and there so funny and just a great frat and i could not ask for a better group of great people!
I love you guys so much and thanks for being such a amazing frat!
The best i ever joined
Im gonna try to tag as many as it will let me
