I think, therefore I am, I think ...
*my quote didn't appear. The one about putting names at the bottom of the screen*


Apart for SJ and Daniel, I haven't a clue who they are.
I only knew Carlos coz I was watchung as he nominated just now ( on my recording)
When I was reading through this thread today I had to Google Lillian to see who she was.
And to save another post, this nomination lark is just stupid. Letting us know a couple of who voted for who, and skipping the majority.
I see another early night coming on!

Not understanding all the hate for Daniel.

He is the only one actively playing the game and thinking strategically, which - surprise, surprise - they’re all supposed to be doing.
This. Exactly what I have been thinking. I am Delayed and had been planning to post something about this. Thank you @the Theorist there has been mostly overwhelming dislike and I had hoped I wouldn’t have to see constant negativity towards the only person properly playing the game strategically. Although still waiting to watch tonight’s episode so in a bit behind. Preview looks surprisingly good though.

...not showing us who voted for who is so suss... so BB chooses who goes eh?... cheers.
Same as last year. Same as survivor. Same producer.

It is an outrage. Production are so locked into this “suspense” nonsense, same with nearly every reality show here. it has become incredibly artificial. Do they do this with Canada BB?

Except on both survivor and this BB there are ways to find out who voted for whom.

This is true. But I still feel it’s a degression substituting this for online content . It probably also has something to do with cramming what was once multiple episodes into a single movie length episode.

You can only avoid being hated as a strategic player if you have something likeable about you. Daniel on the other hand is a strict villain and is in there to be loathed. That’s not to say some won’t enjoy his antics but clearly production were going for a Russell Hantz type character rather than a charismatic love to hate type Dr Will.

Dan seems insecure, and on top of that appears to be having a bit of a mid life crisis.

Not showing all the VTs on launch night was a mistake it seems, as now their booting people out have to show their VT before they go, basically seem to be spoiling their own show.

More dishonest editing with the button and aircraft turbulence.

Yeah, Nah.
I don't mind Daniel playing the game, its a nice change.
Unfortunately, he's just a dropkick of a human with an over inflated opinion of himself. Also, the tantrum he threw when someone else dared to play the game was ridiculous. Don't sook, just play better.

LOL
I find him entertaining, all of the flaws observed by everyone here, just make me laugh
He is ridiculous
I don’t get why anyone here or in there can take him seriously, he is the ultimate buffoon
He is very lucky he got big red attached early, they look funny


The show is so dumb it hurts my brain to watch more than 10-15mins
7 only does competitive rtv, they do not know how to make rtv content, they make sport rtv
And thus it never lasts
9 specialises in scum scripted bottom of the human barrel tv
10/abc/sbs, insist on substantial content rtv

Who cares who the treadmill evicts, we don’t even know their names

Have only watched 2 episodes so far and had some thoughts.

Fast forwarded through the mulcher...boring and patronising to viewers. Would rather be hearing conversations between people who have just met but it's typical of 7's BB to show a repetitive gimmick in place of any intelligent conversation. Why is this even shown at all? It's dumb.

Thought it was so bad but again typical of 7's BB to make Sid's story about his heritage and past just background noise to the sheep hiding challenge.😑

Carlos is an extremely annoying non event. He likes coffee and dancing.

Daniel made the right decision to oust Max. I really wasn't expecting it, i thought the producers would be all over that to put a stop to ruining a potential couple so I was pleasantly surprised when he got the one vote.

What's-her-face gives Sonia Paris Hilton vibes? She's a poor man's Samantha Jade. Apologies to Paris.

SJ is nothing like i was expecting. Thought she'd be annoying af and really condescending.

Sonia was struggling to say "Diary" on ep2 eviction. She's fine as host but really hate her as the narrator. Having the 2 separate creates a nice balance and removes her from the daily events in a way. When she said to Katie "oh I hear you already knew eachother?" Sounded even more fake after she had been narrating that stuff already. Which i get is done post production but it still doesn't work well.

Still don't like not hearing every vote, wish we did with a tally graphic adding up as we go. That is more interesting than a surprise reveal after we've been manipulated by seeing what they choose to show us.🙄
