LOL, awesome, isn't it?
 
And I was LMAO last night when Jen freaked out and went off on Dick and physically assaulted him, trying to get his cig. She had a complete melt-down -- it was hilarious (she has been so controlled all along, this was worth waiting for). I recorded that, definitely want to watch that again, lol.

LOL, I don't think that was the first time he did that, though. She has been so controlled and dispassionate and calm and cool and 'happy', then suddenly she falls apart cuz she knows she's been backdoored and there's no way in hell she's going to stay. I love it!
 
I didn't love the cheating though, that was just bogus. Everyone else plays by the rules...
 
But whatever, lol, that meltdown was epic.
 
Dick is a master at pushing buttons. He's the king.

What you didn't see on the show, Smig, but we can tell you now that it's over, is why Jen told Julie she broke the food restrictions because she was "mad at Big Brother".
 
BB replaced Dick's cigarettes, almost immediately. And they called Jen in to scold her about destroying them, giving Dick time to scour the house for her stuff, which he then locked up in the HOH room.
 
Jen said she specifically asked before entering the house if she could destroy someone's cigarettes if they fucked with her and they told her she could. Then when she did it to BB's favorite ratings grabber, they went back on their word. So she decided to go back on her word about the food restrictions.
 
The way the show was edited, it looked like she was called to the DR after breaking the food restrictions. She was called immediately, while she was still putting the cigs (and bleach on top of them, lol) in the garbage. Then she broke the food restrictions, because it was obvious to her that she was out and that BB was not going to support her at all.
 
Their first punishment was that since she was nominated already this week, a penalty nomination -- which is what the rules called for -- meant nothing, so they made up some shit on the spot. They said that if she survived to next week, she would be automatically nominated and ineligible for veto.
 
ED was quick to point out that such an arrangement screws innocent bystander Jameka, by making Jameka the new target this week instead of Jen, since Jen would become a shoe-in for next week.
 
So BB came up with the new punishment that Jen got an extra vote to leave this week.

LOL, Jen could say they told her anything, doesn't mean it's true, or that whomever told her that actually had authority to do so, or that they wouldn't change their minds about it. I seriously doubt it's in the contract though.
 
I'm really not sure why you explained all that, but thank you, lol. I'm not sure if there was anything in there that was supposed to explain something, but I still don't like cheaters, and it doesn't really alter anything I've posted in here.
 
I had grown to have some respect for Jen as a player (she had moved up very high on my list, in fact), but after she did that (destroyed someone else's property and broke the food rules), she went back to the bottom again. If I were BB producers, I'd probably DQ her from sequester and take away her vote, and put in whomever it was that went out before Dustin. Haha, whomever it was, I've already forgotten - wow, what an impression they must've made on me, lol.
 
Actually, I am glad you posted that. I'm very happy to see that BB replaced his property immediately. I think Jen should pay for it (they're expensive, lol). And interesting to note that before ever even going on the show, she specifically asked if she could destroy someone's cigarettes. Sounds to me as if she had a certain agenda going in....that totally sucks ass.
 
I'm also glad to see that Dick spoke up and pointed out the obvious inequities to Jameka if BB were to follow through with their original plan. Once again, proving he's an incredibly honest and fair-minded individual. I like him more and more each week. I'm really warming up to his kid now, too. I sure wish he could win this, but I don't think someone that honest and fair-minded stands a chance, lol. Not on BB.

I explained that because you said everyone else plays by the rules. Everyone, that is, except BB. They alter their decisions based on how they want the game to proceed.

LOL - I thought about this probably about the time you posted that, I just couldn't get here until now. Funny...
 
Anyway, I was thinking, it actually IS possible that 'someone' confirmed for Jen that she could destroy someone's property....or whatever else any contestant may pre-emptively ask permission for. BB producers (not only being the corporate bastards I assume them to be by nature of the business, lol, but by nature of the genre itself, I assume them to also be rather 'tabloidy' in their dealings...I digress - sorry) are very likely to say, "sure, go ahead," to pretty much anything. And their position would be, "Hey, it clearly states in the contract that we can do A (or we can do A, B, C, etc.), if the contestant does X (or X, Y, Z, etc.) - they signed a document acknowledging that. If they didn't read what they signed....well, that could make for more interesting television. Either way, it's their problem."
 
Caveat contestor, lol.
 
So yeah, I can see a lot of possibilities for manipulation there. Haha, now that's reality. Cool.  
 
 
Oh - something else I thought of (unrelated to this). If Eric were to actually win, that would piss off a whole lot of people, wouldn't it? I mean, what BB has done, in essence, is give an "isolated" contestant a bit of a window into the outside world, a world that is watching and dropping strong hints with their task requests. Duh! Gives him such an edge if he does it right (and so far, he is). That would SO suck, lol.

By the end of all that, I still prefer Jenn to Dick.
 
Dick's an immature whiny ass old man that should know better. And it's not strategy what he's doing, he walks around like a king when he fears nothing, but as soon as something doesn't go his way he explodes like a 17 year old boy just dumped by his first lay.
