The producers had many discussions about it with Jack so he’s had plenty of time to think about his responses. I think he was surprised with Julie Moonves bringing it up in the exit interview but he was ready to address it.

Then the malfunctioning Chenbot completely messes it up with a inappropriate term of her own throwing to commercial. I believe this is the last year of her contract.

Yeah that didnt seem as big of a deal as some made it out to be.

I can't say I blame Cliff for making deals, Katherine was mad at him but what was he supposed to do? He's on the block and trying to stay, of course he's gonna make deals

I hope that it works out in Cliff's favour because it was a ridiculous argument by Kat especially for a guy who's already been evicted. Of course he's going to say "yes" when approached by the people who have the power to save him.

But, if people think Kat doesn't like Cliff, maybe they will be more likely to take him further and not see him as a threat due to jury votes while Kat may see how big of an idiot she was if Nicole gets into the jury and can rationalize with her.

And jeeze, what is with this season and no one being able to keep anything secret? Nicole, you don't actually have to make it to final six with them. Just tell them what they want to hear, and then when/if you get power go and work with Jessica. Instead you just formed an alliance that you immediately ratted out, everyone knows you did, and you still went with them.

I think Jessica might be in a good spot compared to what she has actually done, I could see her taken to the finals as a pawn but end up with Cliff/Kat/Nicole votes while receiving votes from Jackson/Holly if she were to be up against someone like Kristi.

Ya....that was all just dumb. She's been just terrible in this game. Sometimes I forget she's even there.

Dumb dumb move by Nicole. I'm shocked she went that way after knowing Cliff made a deal that left out Jess. Even without strategy, I thought she would have voted with her heart anyways and kept the more genuine person in Kat. Not a good move strategically, and seemed out of character for her personally.

Keep Kat = Have a majority in an alliance of 5 with Kat and Jessica.
Keep Cliff = In a minority and on the bottom in the alliance of 6.

I hope Kat wins America's favourite.

Can't stand Tommy, Christie, Nick, and Sis. Tommy and Christie having a close relationship outside of the house and the advantage of not anyone else knowing is really unfair.

My girlfriend has this show on in the apartment constantly.


I've never watched so much of a season of this. I find basically all of the contestants really unlikeable and/or annoying. Is it always that way? I guess they want contestants that aren't boring.

It's really hit or miss. Last season had Tyler, Kaycee, Haleigh and Brett who I found either enjoyable or likeable. In fact most of that cast was far more likeable compared to the majority of this cast.

But the year before that was terrible, one ringleader and a bunch of unlikeable bullies that make the Six Shooters look like saints. There was also no real gameplay as everyone just did what Paul wanted until he cut them and even though I'm glad on a personal level Paul didn't win, the fact that he didn't also soured the season.

Season 15 had an extremely unlikeable and vile cast, especially after the pre-jury.

This season really does have the whiniest bunch of hypocrites to date. My god what an intolerable group. Tommy used to annoy the hell out of me but is growing on my now. Even Jackson is a bit more tolerable. Really don't care who wins TBH.

This season has been pretty good the last few weeks after a boring first month.

Don't like Christie staying, but Sis was completely useless. Glad she won't get the chance to float to the end of the game.

I wouldn’t have minded Sis staying. She’s nice to look at.

Well I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that the most boring, undeserving and all around terrible human Andy from BB15 calls this the best final 8 in BB history. Or at least something along those lines.

It feels like this game totally hit the brakes once they made jury. Most of the houseguests left have done little to deserve the prize. I think we’re seeing more of the Paul effect.

Little bit of an odd season. I just don’t find most of this cast particularly likeable. Jess is beyond useless and I’m not a huge Christie fan. Other than that I don’t think i care who wins. Even Mickey is tolerable now Jack is gone. No real heroes or villains.
