Comparing someone to someone else of the same race, in a non-derogatory way, is not racist.

She looks like her - and anyone is allowed to have that opinion. Nobody would be crying foul if a Caucasian was compared to a Caucasian.

People waiting to push the "racist" button for any reason are nearly as bad as actual racists, just fuels the fire that needs badly to die out.

I'm curious as to how much of the whole fight, from Megan making the accusation to Jessica/Cody and the rest not correcting the misunderstanding, was pure gameplay.

I feel like Megan's original accusation was purely gameplay and not a concern for protecting racial harmony and likewise I feel like Jessica/Cody and others intentionally blew it up knowing it was just a misunderstanding. Given the way Josh had already attacked Megan, it seems like she was set up to be a scapegoat.

It reminded me of last season (2 seasons ago? maybe even 3?) when one of the contestants knew they needed to start some #### in the house to get themselves off the block. I can't even remember if it was a man or a woman. But I do recall them saying very explicitly to the camera that their plan was to go out and start a fight with someone for the sole purpose of stirring #### up to take attention of themselves. And if my fuzzy memory is correct, their devious plan worked. Everyone in the house bought it hook, line and sinker even though it was completely faked.

Anyone know what incident I'm thinking of?

I'm 90% sure it was Vanessa that pulled the stunt I'm thinking of.

I think I read that Paul knew what was going on and the miscommunication (said so to the camera) but decided to see how it went to ensure the target was off him.

They did not watch BB 15 if they though that was racist. LOL

Megan leaving was king of lame. You go on the show you should be able to handle being evicted. She still had the POV and if she wins that there's no telling how far she goes as plenty of players have started out under the microscope early and kind of fanned the flames to last a long time but instead she quit. For someone that had military experience I would have thought she would have played a better game as she came on a little too strong early and being on the block she should have been laying low instead of trying to create controversy with the "Panda" thing as it was destined to blow up in her face regardless of any rifts it may have created in the house. At the end of the day she wasn't a very good player.

Reportedly she pulled herself or was pulled due to PTSD that came from a sexual assault during her military time which was triggered from the confrontations in the house. Apparently she was taken to hospital.

It happened last season in BB Canada.... I think Dallas tried picking a fight with Demetres.

Cody calling Jessica "Alex" was awesome.

The twist coming to such a satisfying confrontation was great tv.

Things unraveling fast for Cody. Will be interesting to see how his group handles it.

Tonight’s episode was only up to Sunday night. So much interesting gameplay has happened since then. Tomorrow nights episode is going to be a good one.

Jillian has been on the block for almost 14 days. She very well could be the most boring player in BB history. Not a single second of her campaigning.

On another note, Big Brother 1 aired 17 years ago today.

Cody is a dummy.
The majority of his alliance is completely on board with Paul, effectively splitting the group. By not even telling Jessica, he's giving her reasons not to trust him, when she's clearly his closest ally.
On top of that, he's already had to nominate what feels like half the house for eviction this week, so it's going to be extremely difficult for him to pull together new allies if some of his original group turn on him for Paul.

Yeah as much as his distrust of Paul is one of the few things I agree with Cody about, he should have known to take the path of least resistance in the early eviction and wait until an ally wins HOH to target Paul.

I usually encourage big game moves, but Paul was in his big alliance. Turning on him so quickly just shows that he sees himself as the dictator, not a teammate in the alliance.

I think he thinks he's the smartest person in the game.
That might be true, but there are so many unknown variables (especially this year), that intellect alone isn't going to win the game. He seems to have awful social skills, and I agree that he doesn't really seem like he's interested in working as a team.

I think I dislike Jessica more than Cody at this point.

A vote for Christmas to stay was a vote for Cody to go. And he knows it. He's playing way too hard, way too early

F bombs on the first live show is always a good sign

Hoping Paul or Christmas win hoh for more chaos in the house

I don't get what Cody is doing at all, he's somewhat like Devon in that he ruined such a good early position, but most people that do it are hot heads. He barely says anything and looks sedated most of the time
