Ok just finished, lots of stuff to say.
-Initial quick alliance of Jeremy, Spencer, and Howard. Eehhh...not feeling it. Spencer seems too meek to be snapping necks and cashing checks. Layne (I think that was his name) had a big teddy bear vibe, but he also looked like he could get dirty, I just don't see that (yet) from Spencer. Howard is definitely a nice guy. And spencer seems pretty dumb. I doubt this does much damage.
-Second alliance of Jeremy, Jessie, and David. Not stellar, but should be stronger than the first. Having a girl helps because she could align with other girls and strengthen the network. David seems like he could have some clout. I think Jeremy fricked up though by accepting the 2nd one too quick. You can't serve 2 masters.
-Jessie is somewhat annoying because she thinks she's fricking gorgeous, and she ain't. "This is like the athletic group. You're a lifeguard and you're pretty buff and I'm an athlete". I didn't realize she was that shallow. Also that skin tight dress exposed her mini-gut. I will say, her smile is beautiful though.
-Elissa is annoying but hot DAMN that arse in those yoga pants. I wouldn't mind her staying around for a while. And how oblivious is everyone for not noticing the family distinction within 10 seconds? I mean yeah I know we have the advantage of CBS telling us ahead of time, but c'mon. That'd be like the first thing I said in the house, "so you're Rachel's sister huh?" "ummm, no I'm not" "lol, ok"
-Btw, I think this is top to bottom the hottest crop of talent I can recall. I'd frick every one of em except for candice and helen, and I probably still would helen if I was drunk.
-Not wild about the twist. The only redeeming thing I like is that it's anonymous and nobody in the house will know who the mvp was and who put someone up. However, it's just an unnecessary change for change's sake. They're getting cutesy and trying to be fresh and change things up (which I understand the executive bigwig's point of view, they don't want the show to become stagnant), but fans should NOT have an input on the show the whole time. Just lock these strangers in the house and let them strategize, that's it.
-I frickin love mccrae. Seems like a funny arse dude and pretty cool. Might've been a mistake to win the first HOH but whatever. He needs to get himself in a solid alliance.
-In my earlier post I called Nick a loser, I take it back. I've come around on him, most likely because he's who I'm most similar to IRL. Just a regular, normally dressed white guy.
-The gay guy is a little too over the top gay. The season like 2 or 3 seasons ago with the ridiculously flaming guy (think it was Britney's first season)..I ended up coming around on him (dear Lord that doesn't sound right), but maybe it was just due to him being in the house for a while. I feel like flamboyantly gay can either be funny and ok to deal with, or beyond annoying. Hard to get a read on this guy yet.
-I positively cannot STAND ginamarie. I don't care if she's good eyecandy, she's too much. I hope she's the first one out.
If y'all were in the game what do you think your alliance strategy would be? Would you go in and just kinda go with the flow, or immediately try to form one? I feel like Jeremy's strategy of fast and furious alliance making isn't wise, because you've only known these people for 20 minutes. You could end up hating one of them or they could just suck. But I mean you don't wanna get left in the dust. I think I'd probably wait until day 2 and then approach 3 other people (separately, at different times) and formulate a plan.
-What do yall think of the twist?
