    The show premiered last night. This season’s houseguests will have “coaches,” them being Boogie (Winner of All Stars), Janelle, Dan (first unanimous winner, season 10), and Britney.

    Didn’t get a sense of who anyone was, and no one really stood out to me, but I did enjoy the montage of everyone falling on their beds (easy to please, I suppose).

    I think this season has potential. Last night was entertaining for the most part. CBS really needs to stop bringing back veteran players, though I am a fan of all of the vets this season unlike last season. And can we please get some diversity? And stop casting the same stereotypes EVERY season.

    But once things really get going, I’m sure this season will get me hooked like they always do.

    Terrible challenge, terrible format. The coaches decide who leaves?! This will be the first season I miss since I started watching.

    dannyboy, the coaches don’t have a say in who gets evicted (this was a one-time-only thing). Coaches don’t even get to vote for eviction.

    It was awful. I think I’m just sick of CBS recycling reality stars. Its really annoying, even if I enjoyed them while they were on the first time.

    I think the coaches idea gives this a new dimension, however, I’ve never heard of Britney, she must be from one of the two or three season’s I missed.   Overall I’ll be watching, it could be interesting.

    Sad to see SPOILER ALERT:

    Jodi get evicted so quickly, it really wasn’t fair.   But this crap is still better than ABC’s horrid Glass House! Although Glass House contestant Alex Stien would fit perfectly on this show.

    I’ve been OBSESSED with Big Brother since season 2.  My summer has now officially begun now that it’s started.  All I can say is thank GOD Janelle is back.  She’s my favorite house guest of all time (along with Danielle from Season 3 and Jun from Season 4).  Does anyone else think they might change things up and get rid of the whole mentor thing and just have them start competing as players?  They always kinda just give up on their twists a few weeks in.  Though since there is money for them involved, they might not..

    Poor Jodi.  She was the last one picked because she was the older female and it was assumed she wouldn’t do well in physical competitions.  That’s probably why Dan booted her out, too.  That and producers probably encouraged him to keep the “hot” southern girl over her to keep ratings up.  Too bad.  She seemed smart and interesting and would have made the house much more exciting than.. what’s the southern girl’s name?  Ugh.  Big Brother is just becoming so predictable in it’s casting it makes me sick.  But I still watch..

    I think that Ashley girl (hippie blonde who works at the spray tanning salon) seems like a really interesting character.  I think she might surprise..

    SO EXCITED.

    Bump! There are some crazy things happening in the house right now (if you don’t want to be spoiled, wait until the Sunday episode), but others can check out some websites for the developments (very volatile).

    The episode slightly downplayed Willie’s actions according to live feed conversations from the houseguests (they don’t know what the show aired, but according to those involved, Willie headbutted Joe more than once). Also, if you didn’t catch it, Willie threw pork rinds at Janelle.

    I think that the producers should have called him into the diary room as soon as he said, “I’m going to be evicted before I walk out the door (basically saying he was going to get kicked out)” so as to talk him down. However, a time bomb like him basically has no chance at maintaining their cool with how long the Big Brother game lasts (meaning, if he can’t keep his cool on day 14, why would people think he’d be okay on, let’s say, day 70, when the game is nearing its final and most stressful stages?). Basically, I don’t understand his reactions. People have survived far more insurmountable odds in the Big Brother game and didn’t give up (and we must remember that Willie wasn’t even nominated yet).

    The last episode was pretty great.  It wasn’t as exciting as Chima’s exit is season 11, but it was still pretty awesome.  I think I’m going to make this the first season where I don’t look at spoilers online, so I have no idea who Frank is going to put up.

    As of now I like Ian and Ashley..

    But my heart always belongs to Janelle.  If the coaches start to play as individuals, I’ll be team Jedi Janie all the way!

    The casting is the worst part of the show to me.  They clearly go for stereotypes instead of actual people.   Will, Ashley, that southern nurse girl and Shane are just blatant examples of somebody cast to represent a stereotype.

    I think the show has always struggled to maintain their twists, and frankly they haven’t had a engaging theme that worked all season long.   I personally think they should try a season with celebirty contestants. I’ve heard that concept has worked well in other parts of the world.

    OMG! yes! Chima’s exit was literally EPIC! but to me the most satisfying eviction of all-time was when Alison Irwin lost season 4 to Jun Song. Alison was such a vile, mean and just terrible player.   I also chuckled when she was eliminated in All-Stars; I believe she was the first evicted that season.

    PS: I’m rooting for Mike Boogie and Dan!!! I’ve never liked Janelle.

    Yes!  Allison was just HORRIBLE.  And Jun’s gameplay was pretty brilliant.  She’s one of my favorite players.

    Although I AM judging you for not liking Janelle.  Especially considering you like Boogie.. Bleh.  I’ve never met anyone who liked him! haha

    So far Shane sticks out as someone to watch, and he’s probably going to have a hard time staying in the game.

    Also, Willie was arrested today (drunk driving and trying to flee from the police):
