Only one night left in the house for the three douchebags. Hooray!

By the way, I think the feeds are done for the year. CBS/RP cut them less than an hour ago.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

In case anyone cares what Grodner has to say for herself regarding the blocked feeds:

Cutting the feeds: I asked Grodner about her claim to critics that “armchair producers” (feed watchers) keep the show honest, which doesn’t hold up because the feeds are cut and/or the houseguests are yelled at when they discuss anything remotely related to the way the show is constructed. Why do they do that? “We tell them we don’t want production to be discussed, we don’t want casting to be discussed. It’s overall confidentiality. It’s no big conspiracy when it comes down to it,” Grodner said. Meehan added, “We want the show to be about them and their relationships, and we want to just stay out of it.”

She also had a lot of B.S. denying all kinds of DR manipulation, even when point blank asked about BB8 Eric's claims of it.

Not unexpected. DR manipulation is a fact, she doesnt want to admit it for obvious reasons. The show is staged. If the general viewing public really knew how much it'd put alot of them off.

I don't think the show is 'staged' at all. To say it's staged suggests that everyone in the house is basically acting out a script and they're all actors, but that's not the case. The Diary Room does try to influence people to do certain things (nominate certain people, vote to evict certain people) when there's someone they really want to save, but at the end of the day, the HG's still have their own free will and have gone against the DR many times in the past. Look no further than week one of this season for proof of that.

Staged doesnt imply they're acting out a script. But there are definitely events they set up. If this is really supposed to be just the houseguests story, we're to believe that every final 2/3 walks around the house (including rooms they dont otherwise have access to like the HOH room) talking about specific events on their own? That they arent being told over the loud speaker "talk about zingbot, talk about the ragan/rachel fight" etc etc? That they dont get fed lines during competitions, and do multiple takes?

Oh, yeah. That part is definitely scripted, just like the "One of my duties as HOH is to nominate two people for eviction" schpiel in every Sunday episode. The ceremonial opening stuff is always scripted... I assume to help new viewers understand what's going on. Everything else though (private strategy talks, 85% of what we see on the live feeds, etc.) happens at the HG's free will.
