    I can't believe how many HoH comps they aren't letting people see from start to finish. The point is to watch the competition, not to see them start, then see 4 minutes of commercials and promos. It's just wrong.

    I know everyone thinks Brendon's complaining is hilarious, but those first two endurance comps did favour people with smaller feet, that's just a fact.
    If everyone's standing on a platform that's the same length or width, those with smaller feet will probably have an advantage.
    That doesn't necessarily mean the competition gets into the realm of being unfair or fixed, but it certainly looked easier for Matt and Ragan to stand on the paint can than it did for the guys with bigger feet.
    Unless they're going to make these comps ergonomically perfect for each contestant it's likely every one will favour one body type or another.

    I think that she realized what a piece of work she was in the house. No one had anything bad to say, I know that the goodbyes were strategic, but Rachel was horrid in the house. When Brendon said his goodbye, her expression was like disgust. Brendon sucked in challenges and Rachel knows it! I don't think Rachel likes "weak" guys.

    But all competitions favour someone. Quizzes about events in the house favour those with a good memory, or the sense to study. Bowling favours those with good hand-eye coordination. There is no way to make all competitions equal for all participants, unless they are purely luck based.

    Well of course they do, which is why I don't see that it's a big deal for Brendon to point out that the previous two HoH comps favoured people with smaller feet.
    This latest hoh comp seems to favour people with greater physical strength.

    Was it just me, or did Julie Chen look like she could be pregnant again? The more I looked, the more I was convinced.

    And what was that Enzo said when he was in the pool and was trying to say "the laws of physics"? Something like "phyzgs"? You know, that's not a particularly difficult word to pronounce. It came out all twisted up! That was just stupid....but what can you expect from a man who wants to be called "the meow-meow"?

    The best way to hurt Brendon was to get Rachel out. He ought to be an easy mark now. She was his strength.

    I want the have-nots to have turnips and tofu......YUCK-OOOOO!!!! Give me escargot and eggplant all day long!!! Bologna is OK, but it's not escargot, which I find to be majorly good!!!

    I said in the show thread a couple of weeks ago that I thought she was pregnant, she looked like she might be even mroe so this week.
    If she's not, then that was one very unflattering top she had on.

    I'm not really liking Ragan as the saboteur. It is hard to imagine him as a professor when his comments are all so immature.

    I thought that the top was kind of cute, but people in her line of work don't usually wear loose garments unless there's a specific reason. Just the way the top was falling, I thought it looked like there was a little pooch.

    The last two shows Ragan has just seemed mean and catty which has fit perfectly in with Britneys mean girl act, Ragan has become the new Monet. They have become the atypical "cool" highschool kids able to dish it but not take it.
