So if their hoping by bringing a former BB contestant on the show to raise ratings, why not bring someone from Survivor instead? Survivor has higher ratings and I think their contestants would be more recognizable than someone from BB. Could be wrong, of course. But why Alison? Worst case would have been Jun, but who's to say they didn't ask her and she refused. I would have taken Erika over Alison, or even someone from another BB season if that's how they want to do it.Originally Posted by CantGetEnufTAR
I have to agree with what some of you are saying, though, is that it's really not fair for people to be recruited rather than apply (I'm surprised more people aren't outraged about this.) Going to an open casting call is one thing, but to have a casting agent come up to you on the street and say "Hey, want to be on this show" is another. Wasn't she one of the ones who was recruited for BB4? Since Alison already has an in with CBS, they might have asked her, or she might have asked them. Maybe she felt like she wasn't portrayed fairly the last time around and wants a second chance to prove herself, or she's so desperate to get into Hollywood she'll do anything. I might not have a problem if she actually applied to BB and then was asked to do TAR.
Well, I'll still watch, and the good thing is TAR is nothing like BB, so Alison might not know what she got herself into. At least no one selects the winner and she can't have any allies to keep her around, so maybe she'll go quickly. I just can't believe I have to wait until July to watch it. The show must be really good if there convinced it can do well starting so late and being on at 10 at night.
