    Question for the Experts

    Since everyone seems to be down on this year I have a question for those who watch BB.

    I've only watched off and on over the years. How did Jordan (of Jeff and Jordan) win her season? Not bashing her really - just curious. I watched until about the final four - I liked Jeff - I think I quit watching when he got voted off. It seemed like he was doing all the heavy lifting and carrying her - none of the jury seemed to like her (possibly for good reason). Did Jeff convince them at the jury house (is that a thing?). It seemed like all of the people on the jury were her enemies.

    Anyway, I know that was a long time ago - I just quit watching when Jeff got voted off and then was shocked later to see that she had won. Just always curious how she won.

    Thanks in advance.

    As is often the case with BB (or any reality show where there's a jury of previously-eliminated contestants), the winner was decided by virtue of whom they disliked less.

    P.S. I'm not down on this season at all. Enjoying it!

    Thanks.

    I don't watch enough to know but this season seems as entertaining as any. Every time I come on this board after an episode it "seems" like 90% of the comments are about how bad it is and how they are done watching, etc.

    Thanks again.

    Sounds like every year, to me. I find that a lot of people's views of a season are colored by how quickly their favorites are evicted.

    As an update - I now see that the "true" fans ;-) seem to be in the live feeds threads - a lot more discussion in there. That is what I was looking for.

    Yup---you see way more discussion even of the shows on the life feed threads. Even though the feed watchers and readers often know in advance much of what is on the show we don't know what goes on the in the diary room, and that always adds new insight to what we've been seeing/reading about before--you finally find out what people were really thinking.

    Very happy I found that area. Like to spend my lunch break on the internet and I'd come on the day after a show and there would be 3 comments (short lunch). The live feeds part keeps me much more entertained/informed.

    Of course given how slanted that knowledge makes the editing of the show seem it always makes me wonder what REALLY goes on on Survivor, TAR, etc.!

    You know what's been incredibly fascinating for me is going back in the FORT archives and reading the live feed updates from past seasons. I am into August of BB 10 and its neat to watch the people slowly become Dan fans haha but also really giving me an idea of what these guys were Luke all day. I had no idea Howie was a huge pervert haha and that kind of knowledge. If BB 15 is all newbies, I will be forever grateful. Although, I do agree Dan saved this season, love him or hate him.
