So I have spent the entire day watching at least two videos on each person, and reading bios and messageboards. Here is the recap of everything I have learned. Sorry if it is a bit disjointed. I really have been researching all day.
First the guys…
John McGuire 28, (on 6/28)
Annoying dentist. Super fan. Loud. Obnoxious. Noe. I could not watch the whole video. I hate him. I already have seen too much of this person. He could ruin the entire season if he does not go first. I’m going to try to watch his whole BBN interview. He’s applied several times. I can’t believe he is really a dentist so I googled and found this guy. Now I can’t believe he is serious in this persona of screaming and being dumb. He has a B.S. From PENN STATE! And his DMD from TEMPLE. I think he is trying to get into acting and this loser persona is his first role. I don’t believe his obnoxious personality bit. It will get you on the show though. Trust me, it worked for me. But I didn’t really want to be on, I just wanted to see who was auditioning. 🙂 PLANT.
The good looking guy. Grad student at Texas A&M . Recruit. Didn’t know about the show until four months ago. He will suck. Jock, Mama’s Boy, Wannabe be Model, Studying “Sport Management.” Seems a little metro with a slight “ping” on the gaydar. Will definitely have a bromance in the house. Looked into the camera a lot during interview. He and Jeff practically blew each other during interview. Will go far. In his BBN interview he says he isn’t going to bring up that he was a college athlete (football). He is open to a showmance. Douche.
Asian Redneck from Texas. Read that again. Orphaned as a child. Adopted by southern folks. Has a heavy southern accent. Into hunting and fishing. Yet, Asian. Has a daughter . Baby mama came with a foster son. Baby Mama may be older because her son is 16. Has military background. He says he had integrity and values loyalty. That will be problematic. Oh wait, he was arrested in South Carolina last August for a family court issue. Child support? Domestic violence? Has a Taylor Swift cut out in his bedroom. Peking Duck Dynasty jokes are already making the rounds. This guy may have some simmering violent tendencies. In his BBN interview James says his plan for the first HOH is to come in second after making a deal for safety with the winner. He talks about Derrick too much. I watched Derrick win. He is not Derrick. He is open to a SHOWMANCE so he is clearly not with his baby’s mother. He has terrible strategy. As much as I wanted to like Peking Duck Dynasty, I cannot. Can’t tell for sure if he is a super fan or recruit.
Jace is from Dunwoody, Georgia (Atlanta) but has been hanging in Venice beach. He’s a semi pro skateboarder. Looks way older that 23, like what you think that Sawyer kid from The Voice will look like at 33. Clearly has been to college, well-spoken in a salesmen kind of way, very cocky, trying too hard. This year there are all these metal wave walls in the house. He’s the type that will get evicted for climbing them and breaking his neck. Don’t like him much. He’s wearing a heavy leather bomber jacket in the interview. He is one of three so far with a mugshot. His is for disorderly conduct, looked high/fucked up in mugshot. Douche. On his BBN interview it’s clear he is a recruit. Jesus, he thinks he is a rapper. Please noe. He is better looking than that crappy photo. He’s a good looking asshole. He will be a problem for some female. He’s fake. He’s deceptive. He wants to win the first HOH. He is looking for the one person to carry to the end. He is open to showmance but it could be a bromance. He wants one strong partner. He will fuck someone. He’ll have lots of options. He has a hard on for Hayden.
Professional wrestler, used to be with WWE, was severely injured apparently did some physical therapy rehab and now wrestles independently. He’s a genuine superfan. He plans to workout as a way to get to know people. He’s a gymnast. His wrestling name is Judas. He says when Judas comes out, he will put on the top hat. Austin is nice, Judas is a liar. He’s weird. I’m not sure if it is a good weird or a bad weird. Austin has hosted AfterzBuzz shows during the season of bigots and racists. He understands the game. He watches live feeds. I think he will go far. Between Austin and Jason we have at least two people who understand production manipulation. That is good. Austin said on a Buzzfeed I am listening to that he goes to West Hollywood when he is feeling low and needs attention. Sexually fluid? This guy has many layers. His parents were hippies and didn’t make him go to school after 8th grade. But he got up at 6 am every morning and educated himself. He ended up getting a master’s degree in Medieval History. On BBN Austin said his master’s is in Medieval Romance Literature. He plans to play up his injuries to try to avoid the physical threat target. He says he has a girlfriend and will NOT be in a showmance.
Token gay of the season. Wants to start an all girl alliance for himself. He says it takes gay glue to hold a girls alliance together. Girl alliances NEVER work. I predict he and Audrey won’t get along. Especially if this is a battle of the sexes season and he is stuck with the guys and Audrey is not. Jason has a lot of Pee Wee Herman qualities. He smokes. He admits he can be abrasive. He is very tiny. He will be nimble and quick in challenges. He’s like the fourth person whose fear is spiders so I am sure we will see a spider challenge this season. He is a super fan and a live feed watcher. He should be good if he can keep his um, flamboyance in check. Which he can’t. He’s a gay guy with a Masshole accent. It’s even weirder than the Peking Duck Dynasty guy. He’s kind of my favorite so far. But I’m not sure if he can win. And he will probably annoy me over time. On the BBN interview he says he knows how to be very friendly because of his public service experience. He says that he will never give up on an endurance comp. Ever. He wants to win the first HOH to get alliances to invite him in. He wants to eliminate male threats early and end with a girls alliance. He hopes the girls implode in the end.
College student. Engineering major. Smart. This season’s Ian. Nerdy. Superfan. Live feeder. He is worried about trying to work with stupid people. I think I love him. Oh wait, he is going to use a dorky innocents to be picked up by an alliance. His strategy plans suck. He doesn’t drink. He’s a virgin who sleeps with a teddy bear. I think I hate him. I think he is going to annoy me! Sigh. Not looking forward to watching his BBN interview. He is shocked he was picked. So am I. I think he is very smart and a superfan. He will follow Dan’s plan to listen and not talk about himself much. He plans to blend. He wants to bond with someone who is not the center of attention. As an engineer, he is going to try to avoid a showmance. I think he would be easily swayed if anyone was interested.
Let’s see if the females are any better..
Becky is in retail sales, had lived overseas, did she say Germany? working as a store manager. She’s perky. She’s is athletic, lifts weights, has a degree in economics. Her favorite hamster is BRENDEN. WTF? She is down to lie and betray others to win. She is super boring. Only 14 hamsters have been identified, I think there are two more. Perhaps two people with identical twins? Maybe she has one? I have no idea how she made it on the show unless there is a twist or she is sucking the right pole. Her BBN was boring. She uses words wrong. Doesn’t seem smart. I think if you look up the term “Basic Becky” you will see her picture. She’s gonna be a floater. She’s down for a showmance. She wants to be a celebrity from her game appearance. Recruit? Why is she here?
Another Georgia girl. Superfan. May get along with Jace from Dunwoody. Transgender. See post here for all of that. On The Talk today Julie admitted it was supposed to be a surprise for the first episode but it was leaked to TMZ. Which means the other houseguests probably already know. Julie actually got choked up talking about it while asking people to watch with compassion. Oh Julie, this girl ain’t gonna get no more or less compassion than the next hamster. They are on a hamster wheel for our viewing pleasure. And what pleases us is criticism. Because we’re assholes. Today I saw a video of her having Facetime sex with a female. So despite her bio saying she likes tall dark and handsome men… she may also be team sexually fluid. I hope they don’t allow chewing gum in the house. Probably the first houseguest to proclaim, “I’m not a sociopath” in an interview. It really doesn’t matter what I think about Aubrey because she will be around deep into the game. Because, production. A wise player, like Austin, will know this and align with her early. Her BBN interview was boring except when she talked about all the girls cycling together because, um…penis.
From her bio, “Vanessa is the No. 2 female poker player in the world when it comes to online and live tournaments. She’s been pro for the past 10 years and has won $4.5 million dollars since she began. She’s a tomboy who has always been extremely competitive, whether it’s playing lacrosse in high school or beating men and women all over the world at the poker table. Being in a male-dominated industry, Vanessa isn’t easily intimidated and is used to keeping her emotions in check, which will help her keep her eye on the prize. She’s perfected the art of bluffing and knows that she can manipulate her Houseguests however she sees fit while living in the Big Brother house.” She is in a same sex relationship and says she may struggle with missing her girlfriend. My fear is she reminds me of Gina Marie and I fear some sort of twist where Gina Marie is back in the house. I sure hope that doesn’t happen. She is smart, a Duke graduate, knows how to read people. She plans to say she is a DJ and hopes no one recognizes her from televised poker games. She could win. So far I think she has the best chance. She is going to miss the WSOP by being in the house. She was married to a man but divorced him, for a woman I believe. He has since passed away. Her girlfriend has supposedly told her she can’t lay in the hammock with anyone. WTF? Probably a recruit. In her BBN interview, she’s just really good. I hate rooting for a recruit, but she’s my pony. She is not putting faith in a female alliance unless it is late in the game. Obvi no showmance. Oh she likes Dan Gheesling! I like her even more. She is loving the experience. I want to be her girlfriend.
Single mom to a seven month old daughter. Token super religious black lady. Will be crying about missing her daughter and praying a lot. She lists her profession as a poker dealer but she lives in Inglewood, California not Vegas. It’s possible she might recognize Vanessa and blow her cover. She says that she will not mention that she is poker dealer because to be a good poker dealer, you have to be a good poker player. She says she is loud and outspoken. She is more likeable than I expected in her interview. She’s pretty. I can’t believe she would leave a seven month old for three months to be on TV. I’d vote her out for that alone. #FixItJesus On her BBN interview she said she is going to tell everyone she is a school teacher. She wants to throw the first HOH and go out third. She is a true superfan. She wants a three person alliance one is the flunkie and one is her ride or die. Then she will have a bigger alliance with people she is not really ride or die with. I may have underestimated Da’Vonne based on the Jeff interview. I like her a lot in interviews, I think CBS may be playing up the super religious black lady card on her bio and perhaps she is just normal religious. Could she be the first black female winner? (wait was there another? there could have been…I tend to forget past seasons). She might have what it takes.
Waitress in NYC. Her favorite hamster is…THE BROTHER. Jesus Christ that is a worse answer than the one who said Brenden. This is all I need to know about this one. Hate her. Recruit. She has a webcast called “Fruitflies” which is the PC term for Fag Hags. She has terrible taste in gay men. Hate her. Do not want her to team up with Jason. Keep away from my Jason, bitch. Has ties to Frankie and Survivor contestants. I hate her. UGH. I do not want to listen to her LOUD GRATING VOICE. She is trying to pretend she was not recruited. She was. I had to turn down the volume. I hate her. She screams like the dentist actor. She says flirtmance, not showmance. I say she fucks whoever offers. She does not want to win the first HOH. She doesn’t understand the game. She’s in it for the TV time. Again, RECRUIT.
Her favorites are Janelle, Jeff and THE BROTHER. Seriously? Noe. If I had to pick the transgender person from this season, I’d pick Liz. She sits in a wide leg man status in a short dress. She is going to use fucking as a strategy. She will be the first one we see nude on the live feeds. Early boot. Liz has a twin. And so does one other girl but her twin is a guy. Could they be the two missing hamsters? Liz has lots of nude or at least topless on the interwebs. She’s be nude on the feeds. On her BBN it becomes obvious that Portia helped recruit her. She is annoying as fuck. I swear she could be transgender too. She cooks and cleans and hopes that will keep her in the game. She is NOT down for an all girls alliance. She wants a showmance with a strong male. She talks about her bikinis in both interviews A LOT. She wants to be Rachel right down to the combined showmance nickname like Brenchel. Do college grads really say, “I just graduated college?” You don’t “graduate college” you graduate FROM college. Her bio says she graduated “cum-laude” which should not be hyphenated but doesn’t say from where. She keeps saying she JUST graduated and yet she seems older than 23. I don’t know where she graduated from, but I do believe cum was involved.
Shelli pool is my home girl! I hope I like her. Big teeth. Small dress. Single. Open to anything. Has said “totally flexible” three times. Talks very fast for a southern girl. Adderall? The straight males are calling her the prettiest female on the show. I really want to root for the Atlanta girl but she doesn’t appear particularly smart, educated, strategic or a superfan. She is the oldest female in the house. Her only real hope is if she gets Austin’s attention. And I don’t know if Austin will be down for a hookup. She is they type that can’t be without a man. I am going to TRY to like her, but I don’t see her in it for the long haul. I hope I am wrong. I think she might be a RECRUIT. On her BNN interviews, she doesn’t seem to know how the interview process works. She does not seem genuine. Her interviews are longer than others. She can’t answer questions on the fly. She’s hiding things. I’m not sure she has seen the show before being recruited and doesn’t seem to get the game. She is NOT down with a girls alliance. She is open to showmance. She did have a good answer for who to eliminate first the strong player or the weak one. She said someone in the middle. I agree, neither a big threat or a weak one. She is desperate for a man. Any guy who pays her attention first she will hook up with.
So there we have it. I could see a hairy man alliance. A slut alliance. A fear of spiders alliance. And perhaps the largest group would be the sexually fluid alliance. Because with the exception of the virgin dude, they all seem “very flexible.”
I guess for now, Austin is my favorite guy and Vanessa is my favorite girl. What are your thoughts? Pick your winner NOW. I pick every year based off these interviews. Last time I was right with Derrick, FOR THE FIRST TIME. I used to play online BB games and my pick was ALWAYS first out. This year. I am calling Vanessa for the win. With Austin as her second.
Just as I thought I was done, UF sent me THIS LINK to the BigBrotherNetwork Interviews. Watching now. Will add more details if necessary.
