It can be hard to admit you love Big Brother after recognizing that half the cast is a racist squad of frightening losers. But you know what’s easy to love? The look on David’s cartoon jock face when he discovered he was voted out of the house. He was dumbstruck. He was also just dumb, so I might be confusing the two. When Julie Chen sat down with David, he absently spouted something about being “smart,” and I just pointed and giggled like the Duck Hunt dog. David was tragically unfit for the machinations of Big Brother, but I wish him good luck and hope he gets over Aaryn soon because her employers sure have.
Since we’re now officially in the thick of the game, I thought I’d take this recap to formalize some predictions for the season. Who’s going to win Big Brother 15? Here are my predictions of the final rankings; educate me in the comments with your disagreements.
She’s (seemingly) disliked by everyone in the house. Usually within the first few weeks, agreed-upon outcasts get the boot. Candice is also the only member of the household who I simply cannot imagine winning the game. No gameplan, no edge. Gone.
I like Helen, but the Svengalis of the game will surely want to eliminate intelligent competitors. Helen would be the correct place to start.
Aaryn has some gamesmanship wits about her, but I sincerely believe she is too racist and offensive to last long. I’m expecting tantrums soon. I’m also expecting her to go to jail for being named “Aaryn.”
Yes, I predicted Judd would go far at one point, but he’s not a part of the fearsome Moving Company alliance, and I think that spells his doom. He’s not very skilled and doesn’t seem crafty enough to outwit or outplay other houseguests. Sigh. There was potential, at least at one point.
I just don’t like this person. She’s pushy, yet apathetic. No.
This is a pessimistic wager for Andy, especially since I think he’s truly smart (in a Big Brother-applicable way) and could even defy the Moving Company with smart gameplay. I worry he’s just an inoffensive option for elimination who will be discarded early for that reason. He doesn’t have much in common with last season’s gay king Wil, but in this area they’re quite similar.
She’s good for a quote (and some racism too, unfortunately), but I’m waiting for GinaMarie to prove herself canny. Not seeing it yet.
