Rigged

I just got online and went to check on here to see what people thought of Big Brother last night. Then I thought I would go on CBS to check on the HOH comp.So im reading the topics and I guess now that Zach is actually winning this means the competitions are rigged for him lol. This is not the first time I have seen something like this. I do believe some aspects of the game are rigged but come on people just because someone is finally doing something doesn't mean that it was rigged. I remember reading that one of the competitions were rigged for Dani when she kept winning too. What do you think?

I agree, there is no way that CBS would take the chance to rig a game show. I am so glad that Zach is showing D&D that other people in the house can step up the game and win. It really did irritate me last night when Dani was motioning to her father to start jacking his jaws at Zach, serves both her and her dad right that they didn't outlast Zach. I would love to see Zach and ED as the final two, Dani is so ungrateful she don't need to win a cent and I would love to see the jury vote to give Zach the money, talk about an upset Donato. hahahah That would make this show worth all the headaches and foul from ED worth while. hahaha

I personally don't think the game is rigged. CBS could get into a lot of trouble if they did that and I think they are smarter than that. Just my thoughts....

Well I think Fans(be it D&D fans or other fans) have a tendancing for saying this,I read on the boards that last night HOH comp,was rigged because Dani used to be a dnacer,so she would win for sure,then I heard it was rigged because Zach never wore a hat,I have seen him wear hats in comps before. At this stage in the game we all sometimes get mad and come up with ways to say stuff like this. I don't but I see it all the time on the boards,I'm sure in the DR the producers get them riled up for more drama,but I am not 100% sure that the game itself is rigged. But there has been some "cheating" going on that I don't like,and the abuse factor,as well.

I don't think the comp was rigged.. I do think BB told them to wear some sort of headgear.. you notice they all had head coverings of some sort.. although ED and Dani's choices were probably limited to what they had brought with them. They were all wearing gloves which I am sure BB provided before the comp. Personally, I had a really good feeling that Dani was going to go out first in that competition. As soon as the rain started hitting her she was already visibly shaking. Zach and ED didn't look like they were even bothered by the rain. There was no way Dani was going to outlast Zach. I really don't think being a dancer would give her an advantage in that competition.

I'm a D&D fan and never once thought anything was rigged and never heard anyone else that was on the D&D side say such a thing. It was always people that were voting for Zach and people that hated the D&D that would yell "RIGGED"! And as for cheating? Where do you get that? Dani and E played the best out of the whole game. But I guess that means its rigged? Because they did win... :)

I wasn't saying it was rigged because Zach has started winning. I was saying it was rigged in that the America's Player voting were actually chosen by BB and not America's voting. I can see execs feeling sorry for the relationship between ED and Dani and wanting them to mend fences so try and keep them in the house as long as possible. If they want to play psychiatrist, send them over to Dr. Phil. I was thinking about this last night and I think that ED is very abusive (verbally, emotionally) and this, perhaps, is not something CBS should be condoning. He should have received warnings earlier on about his getting right in people's faces (argument with Eric) and throwing things around. One season a house guest got tossed out by Big Brother because he got angry and threw some chairs around. I liken ED's behaviour to this and think he should have been warned. I mean his own daughter cried to him that he was being verbally abusive and mean. I don't honestly believe that CBS rigged the show. I think the house guests screwed up. But I also believe they had some help from CBS. Those diary room sessions are the guests responding to questions asked by CBS. That is bound to get the player having second thoughts depending on how the wording is put to them. I hope Zach whoops their butts!

Oh no I wasn't meaning you i was talking about a post that was on the Big Brother Site. It stated that they thought this last competition was rigged for Zach to win because apparently ED was injured in the last veto competition. I hope I did not offend anyone, and thanks for your thoughts on it.

I know, but I did say it in a different discussion. I have read the CBS boards myself, though not in the last couple of days. I was unaware that ED got injured during POV.

America is playing this game too. If they didn't have americas player, there would have been a totally different outcome because Eric would have never gone against Dustin and Amber. I can see how you are saying it was rigged in the effect, but it really wasn't rigged, it was just poor playing by America.

I think that people will say anything when the game isn't going like they want. I don't believe that the game is rigged at all. Too much risk to CBS!

I agree with what you just said. That is what I been trying to say. People always get all pissed if things don't go their way or if someone they want to win isn't winning, then omg, its rigged. LOL!

If you're gonna say something like this you should make sure to post a spoiler warning. Because some people haven't always caught up yet. I doubt it's rigged. I mean, I think all game shows and the like have some sort of pre-determined ending (and no, I don't mean God pre-determines it!) but I don't think they necessarily rig it for that specific person to keep winning or whatevs.

Sorry about that. I will make sure to remember that.

I don't think it's rigged at all. I believe that the people who are saying it's rigged are just upset that things are not going their way. Maybe they are upset because someone they don't like is winning, so they have to make an excuse. Plain and simple. All I have to say is "get over it." It's not rigged. And one more thing.... "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, ED AND DANI WON!"

I just hope Daniele doesn't whine to all the others in the sequester house and somehow make them feel sorry for her (once again) enough to vote her dad as the winner. Ugh, that Daniele is the evil one. ED, I like.

I doubt it was rigged. If they are still talking about the jumping over the bunny competition, Dani and ED were already looking like they were having a hard time as soon as they put the water on them last night. Dani looked like she was freezing as the show ended. And Zach looked as though it wasn't even bothering him. In fact thanks to his height...the front of his shirt didn't even look wet yet. Plus he said he wasn't trying before and now he is. Especially when you get this close to the end. He even said he's happy with second place.
