I don't get the infatuation the guys have with Danielle. I've seen fatter people coming out of Auschwitz in 1945. Why would anybody want to wipe butter off her? You may get splinters.

Too bad...cause she is a pretty girl; but she's definately anorexic
This is a sore subject with me. She certainly does appear to have eating disorder.

And if you study that illness, you will see an overwhelming correlation of victims who have major relationship problems with one or both parents.

The show producers put an obvious eating disorder victim into a surprise forced confinement with her estranged parent.

This strikes me as a wreckless act that any reputable psychologist would counsel against.

Consider this:
* this illness is commonly refered to as 'E.D.'
* E.D. victims are often girls with abusive or overbearing fathers
* her father's nickname is 'E.D.'
* at the very least, Dick has got an abusive and overbearing personality

If you wrote a a show with this kind of plotline, it would be considered too far-fetched.

Results from tonight's show:

Kail's alliance seems to be all but dead after her three boys did not vote with her. ED seemed to indicate early that he was going to be targeting Kail, Zach and Mike. No one is on slop this week as the whole house competed for food. Amber's crying is starting to get RIDICULOUS. She cries at EVERYTHING. Sigh... a funny moment was when Eric and Jen wrestled and she kicked his ass. Damn she is competitive. Eric, America's Player, has been tasked with targeting Jen for nomination and will become a "Secret Vandal" later in the week based on who America votes to have targeted to have their stuff stolen.

ED and Nick had a sort of man-to-man conversation about "trust" and his daughter. I'm sure Nick felt like he was auditioning to get permission to date Daniele.

At the nomination ceremony, to no one's surprise, ED nominated Kail and Jen. Eric completes that task.

I think it will be interesting to see how Jen reacts to being on the block. When she was wrestling, her true competitive self came out. I think she'll be in the game after this.

Next show: Tuesday @ 9:00pm EST on CBS.

Cheers.

E.D. is more commonly associated with another medical condition.

HA! On the first episode, she rattled off about 30 "things" that she did. That pretty much set the tone for what people thought of her from the start.

Strategy or stupidity... I still don't know.

Cheers.

Did you know that Nick's Dad thought he was gay until he turned 21?
Actually I was thinking that myself. Not to be stereotyping but he really reminds me of a couple guys I know that figured out their orientation a little later in life.

I was going to post that before, now I see the most recent episode *really* played up that angle. Nick was practically drooling over his top 5 guy list.

I think BB (like many of these shows) assigns a label to the contestants based on some role they want to assign that person. I'm willing to bet Jen has multiple jobs including wanna-be actress, but they wanted to label her as a nanny.

I also find more and more BB seems to recruit most of their people based on whoever hangs out at Mike Boogie's bar (hollywood hangout), then they slot in a couple other people that fit a category(old woman/old man/visibile minority)

It's like they do the casting the weekend before the show starts and make the least possible effort.

Realistically, 10 cast members should probably be labeled 'actor' but instead they take some day job that person has or had at one time and put them under that category.

Jen's getting victimized by a butchering in the edits. Follow *anyone* around and you could make a clip reel of them saying "i" and "me" a dozen times.

Not to say she's not vain and self centered, but if she's a 10 on that scale, most of the housemates are running about a 9.5 anyway.

And besides, Jen wears it without shame, which is awesome. She doesn't put on fake nonsense like so many others.

I loved the confessional where she was talking about not feeling sorry for Jameka or the people eating slop. Contrast against Dick's fake racial sensitivity (and Jameka's equally ridiculous indignation).

She was just so straightforward and honest:
"I don't know what it's like to be on slop so I can't feel bad"
"I'm not very good at that... feeling-bad thing."

And to the people criticizing her for not wanting Evil Dick perving on her... Puhlease... nobody would want that. At least she had the purity to say it.

This just proves how easily the masses can be led (or more accurate, MIS-led)

Jen is getting a brutal edit job. She could just as easily have been portrayed like Janelle, but without Janelle's mean streak.

Having the voters single Jen out for nomination and to be Eric's vandal victim just shows how easy it is to influence the masses to make her the enemy.

She's actually really upbeat and positive, strong enough not be drawn into bs with certain psycho's. Yeah crying about your picture is weird, but then again is there anyone here that hasn't seen a picture of themselves that made them say "geez I wish that could be retaken".

I hope Jen squeezes through. She's a sleeper and I hope she gets the chance to convert some viewers like she is converting people in the house.

I'm surprised someone hasn't compiled a list of her "Jen" t-shirts. They are quite funny. "Jensa Member", "Jenuine", "Jenius", "Jenth Degree"...

I thought the guys were going to wear "Jenitals" t-shirts? What happened to that?

Next episode is tonight @ 9:00pm on CBS. PoV competition and results will be aired.

Cheers.

True. From what I've heard, Eric has been trying out for BB since Season 2. Some people seem to do a "reality show tour" and try to get on all the various reality shows. I know some people have appeared on several. Seems like it's a "job" for them. I'm curious how much these people get paid (if anything) while they're on the show.

Cheers.
