ROFLOL...... I think everyone was shocked!
And, hey, if you have the time and don't mind, could you elaborate more on "There are many things that have happened in that house that are important to character development..." What characters/situations are portrayed better/worse on TV, in your opinion. Just thought it'd be interesting.
You asked me to elaborate a little on what I meant. So here goes!
Let's take Marvin first... He is soooo rude! He's constantly referring to the females in the house as sexual objects. In the first week or two he got pretty "handsy" with a couple of the girls. Evidently the girls complained to Big Brother via the Diary Room and he's kept his hands to himself since then. (read that in live feed posts, when my computer was acting up, so I didn't actually see it myself) By the way... if you'll notice they don't show much audio on Marvin, that's probably because he has a hard time speaking without cursing. Every other word it seems comes out a curse. Definatly wouldn't be able to quote him here, lol.
Now lets's add Scott and Jase to the picture. All three of these guys have made fun of and made some extremely rude comments about Cowboy's (Michael's) fiance's weight. Some they have even made in front of him and he (Cowboy)doesn't stand up to them and defend her to them. The show doesn't give an accurate account in my opinon of how much of a puppet he (Cowboy)really is to Jase and Scott. They use him and make fun of him behind his back all the time, but we never see much of it on the show. Others in the house think that Cowboy will "see" them for who they really are when the show is over and he watches the tapes, BUT they're not showing any of that. Granted, I'm sure they (CBS) are trying to protect his fiance through all of this and trying to not hurt and embarrass her, but I do think it says something about ALL 4 of their characters.
Jase and Scott have had conversations about morals and honor to make you think that they are really fairly "okay" guys, they're saying that they know that it's evil to be in this house and it's making horrible people out of them and making them liars and cheats and and how they know that this is wrong because it's all for money and that the love of money is the root of all evil. And then.... they're right back out there lying and schemeing again and laughing about it. Scott at first even tried to deny lying to anyone.. to JASE. Jase was like, come on man, you know you've lied, I've heard you! Scott then says oh yeah, well... laughs.... so what? They still deny an alliance to the rest of the house calling what they have a "friendship", lol. They These guys are soooo full of themselves. I know CBS tries to show it, but it's downplayed soooooo much! They are really and truly stuck on themselves! I think their actions speak for themselves.
There are things Scott has said and done that would get pulled on this board if I posted it.
Drew, a part of the 4 horsemen alliance, is basically guilty by association at this point. He's a good guy, in my opinion, that so far is getting pulled down by his fellow horsemen. The last few days for Drew have been really, really rough. I'm waiting to see what he's going to choose to do. His character, in my opinion, is on the line and I hope he realizes it before it's too late.
Ok... it's getting really hard to talk about this without spoiling anything for viewers who don't want to know what happens so I'm going to have to stop or take this to a Spoiler thread if it goes much further.
When you take into consideration the amount of time you actually see on the show, there's so much more that tv viewers don't see. It's also hard to pick and grab different things at random about people and what defines their character. A lot of it, is just putting together all the little things and adding them up. Don't get me wrong, I honestly try to look at everyone with an open mind. It's hard sometimes though to see things on the live feeds that you feel are important and they don't make the show. Sometimes there are valid reasons you wouldn't want to air different things but it does sometimes mis-represent the person on tv.
count me in on the good info.
