Think about it though, that's the beauty of BB because these people are confined to this relatively small space with no interaction from the outside world and are then pitted against one another. They lose any concept of reality and their entire universe is encompassed in this small area that never changes. They all go insane on some level. Some get more crazy than others, but over time they all get extremely paranoid and irrational. It really is an amazing science experiment every season. I know past houseguests have said it takes about a month to readjust to life outside the house, but I really just can't even imagine what the whole experience must be like. The level of embarrassment some must feel when they find out all of the things they have done or said, and the reaction they get from outsiders, friends, and family....all so unthinkable to me.
Excellent excellent post
There is no question that we as viewers can't understand why they react while going through this. We all like to think we'd act perfectly rational and logically, but we just don't know.
I said in an earlier post, my wife and I have been completely in love for over 10 years, and we still squabble over little, ultimately insignificant things. These people are surrounded by strangers 24 hours a day in an inescapable bubble completely shut off from the outside world with nothing to keep themselves occupied while competing to win half a million dollars against one another. Who wouldn't lose their shite in such a situation.
It's one of the reasons I never seriously considered applying for reality shows. Deep down, I know I'd fricking lose it and look ridiculous. I'll sit here and judge from my couch in my snuggy with a cold beer thank you very much.
I completely agree. These people tell each other what they want to hear. None of it really means anything. Unless they are clearly opposed to each other like Elissa and Amanda, or they are clearly working together like Amanda and McCrae, then they will all shift their allegiances based on who in is power.
Another excellent post
