I can tell while watching that Eric really does like Jessica....however, do you ever wonder what will happen AFTER the show and AFTER Jessica finds out that Eric was constantly told what to do? Last episode, he gave her a stuffed dog b/c America said to... obviously he liked her and would not have to lie about giving it to her b/c he liked her. However, he still had to make up a story behind the dog. If I were Jessica, it would be hard to trust Eric once I found out how many of his actions were directed by America and sometimes he even had to convince her to vote differently just so that he could win some money. So what do you think? Will Jessica understand after the game? Or will she feel "played"?

I think Jessica is a bit, what you would call Naive. I think that when she finds out about Eric, she'll be upset. She's found out throughout the show that Eric has lied to her a few times and she's always upset and then continues on with the thing between the two of them. She found out that Technically Eric has a girlfriend of sorts and he's mentioned it to others in the house (Danielle, because that was on an After Dark episode and apparently Jen knew) before ever telling Jess. She's still not even mad about that... "i don't like cheaters". well HELLO!? What do you call Eric. He's a snake in general and I like Jessica and I'd like to hope that they would not pursue a relationship afterwards, but unfortunately sometimes naivety creates relationships that never should have been.

I guess I like to think that he really does like her, but it's hard to trust a guy who can so easily make up stories. BB hasn't yet interviewed that Cheryl girl, but I wonder if they will so we can see what she says (ie are they together or not) It's a toss up whether or not Jess would trust him. If she watched the show, she would find a lot of times he was being completely honest to her, and also a lot of times he was bending the truth to do what America wanted. Who knows!!

yeah. Plus she's so young, I mean 21 isn't that young but you know, it is too. She lives one place he lives another. Has BB ever had a wedding hook-up? it could be a first, but I don't predict a long lasting future after the house. Plus she's a cute girl and he totally isn't a cute dude. i've realized you can totally see it in his face when he's lying. It's a shame no one else see's it. Oh and...hopefully she'll also see the Eric didn't just bend the truth for America, it was also for himself. He's still swearing that he never voted for Kail those two times. He could fully admit that he did do it without blowing his "america's player" cover...and instead he just continues lying.

I think Jessica will understand when she finds out that Eric was America's Player and doing what he was told to do by us. As for his girlfriend?? He has said that they are not together, it is off again and on again, that type of relationship. I really do think Eric has feelings for Jess and I think she has feelings for him also. I think they are so cute together. As for Eric's facial expressions and moves, have any of you ever thought maybe he has tourettes? Look it up on the internet and see what you think. Can't wait to see the Power of 10 tonight then the show. I hate when this show goes off, too bad they don't have other guests ready to come in as soon as the season is over. hahahaha

Yeah he does have a lot of facial ticks etc. They are a cute couple to say the least. I hope they both understand whatever comes of this "relationship" once the show ends.

I think she will forgive him, as Big Brother told him how to play the game. She would do the same thing, so think she will figure this out. She is young and maybe isn't looking for a relationship, as she attends college. I don't think they will have a romantic relationship, but think they will be good friends outside of the house.

Yeah, I think you are right. I think there's not going to be romance, but I can see them being friends still since they have shared a lot of fun and good times even if he had to make up stories a few times.

Jessica is naive, but I think she might understand. I think it may take her a little while, but if she takes a step back and thinks about what she would have done if they had chosen her....she would have done the same thing.

True, I bet any of us would do the same thing since he probably signed a contract with BB8 and probably thought it was a great way to make money without winning!

she said she doesn't like liars, so i'm not sure how she will feel. i think she might give him a chance to see who he really is. most reality relationships don't work out though. i think big brother is going to far this time by having eric kiss someone in the house. and chances are america is going to pick one of the other girls and upset jessica.

Well, they didn't say he has to kiss the person on the LIPS, so he could easily jokingly kiss any of the players on the head, on the hand, something stupid and make it like he was just joking. OR he could do a dare "if I don't make this I will kiss soandso!" and then lose on purpose. I'm sure he will find a way to make it so it isn't a big deal, even if it is Jess.

Well according to last night's epsiode, Eric had a girlfiend name Cheryl. I think he is just playing Jesica. Also, itw as cute that America had him give her teh Woobie. But I think it would be HILARIOUS if America votes for him to kiss Evel insead of Jess!

Oh my...that would be gross but yet hilarious....I do think that Eric likes Jessica and vice versa...If Jessica found out he was America' player I bet at first she would be upset but then again, he's only doing what BB is asking him to do and he really does not have a choice in the matter...I'm soooo glad that Jen is gone...she was unrealy and what she did to Evel was just wrong...she is a very hateful and spiteful person...glad to see she's gone!!!

I for one hope they do not hook up. I can't stand Eric, He makes the ugliest faces in the DR, when he his lying he does this spitting laugh thing that drives me bonkers, and when he thinks someone is gonna catch him in a lie he starts eating his fingernails which is SO gross. I'm suprised he hasn't eating one of his fingers off yet. The only thing I don't like about Jess is her voice, but that's only because I personally know someone who's voice sounds like that.

Wow you really noticed the body language. Now that I think about it, I do notice him doing those things too. I sometimes wonder if I would have somehow liked him if he was just a regular houseguest and not America's Player. I don't mind Jess's voice even though a lot of people do. She seems so nice and based on what I see on the show I bet she's very good to her friends.

I think that Jess is smart enough that once she finds out about Eric being selected as Americas Player that she will understand most his actions. But I feel that when they show started there did seem to me an attraction aspect between them both. It was evident after a couple shows a swell. I just hope she doewsn't hurt him nor he hurt her in the end due to the fact he was "told" most the time what to do. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think its hard to say which way Jess will feel about Eric once she finds out about America's Player. She's already admitted that she doesn't trust him 100% but trusts him more then most of the people in the house. She may understand that this is just a game - its not real life and be alright with it. Then again this could all just be a "showmance" and nothing is going to come from their in house relationship. Who knows...If i were in her shoes...I dont think I would truly let it bother me if i really had feelings for that person.

I don't think I'd trust him if he's that easily controlled. I realize it is a reality show, but the buck has stop somewhere. I don't know if she will or not. I don't get to watch it...
