Trying to think better of Ryan...

So, here's the thing. I have never really disliked Ryan. He seems a person of genuine character. Of all of the players, even my favorite, James, he is the only one who doesn't resort to name calling and sticks up for people who are being beaten down by someone else. So, since it is likely that we will be losing my favorite BB hg, James this week, and, I don't see Chelsia making it as people are really sort of gunning for her too, next in line would by Ryan so, while I am furious at him for tossing James up there, I do like him. I like that he doesn't resort to verbal warfare and he doesn't say horrendous things about other people either behind their back or right to their face. And, he does seem to have a clue about Matt, even though he is playing the game of "Kiss Matt's Butt" right now. I do think that he has a brain in his head and he can see right through Matt's good guy, bros to the end act. So, I am working towards a better feeling towards Ryan than I have had most of the week since he decided to put James up. What do all of you think? P.S. I HATE! HATE! HATE! that James is on the block! AND, EVEN MORE THAN THAT...I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE H - A - T - E MATTY!

I'm kind of torn regarding Ryan. I thought he was nice and getting screwed because of his partner Allison. But, with this hoh, or I should say Matt's hoh since he has pretty much controlled it. I've lost respect for ryan because of him letting matt control him. If he would have put matt up instead of james then I would have a lot more respect. Then again, I'm mad because James is leaving. Oh, and please Ryan--PUT DOWN THE FOOD! The boy has not stopped eating!

Matt has always tried to control everyone's HOH's! Ugh! I hate that kid. I know that hate is a strong word but, I really have no tolerance for people like him. I was furious at Ryan when I found out he was putting up James. But, just watching him correct Matt about how he treats Natalie is a little redeeming. Not entirely redeeming. But, the sort of gentle and calm way that he suggests to Matt that he should be nicer to her is very sweet and more level headed than anyone else in the house. Don't get me wrong. I can't stand Natalie and she needs to go. But, Matt is such a dog and, no girl deserves what he does to her. Ryan is a huge Haus of a guy! He needs lots of food to fuel that much haus! LOL! But, you are right! Step away from the food man! lOL!

It's nice to know that ryan did correct it, but I also did hear ryan tell matt to use natalie as a spy. I agree, he's a big boy, but he needs to learn one word: MODERATION!

I do like Ryan too. I think that he knew that he has a better chance sticking with Matt and Adam then he does sticking with the others, especially since Matt claims he has his back. Those other 4 would have been after him next for sure. I do agree he does play the game nice. He could have done his veto speech saying "you're all backstabbers and liars" but instead he was pretty PC about it and very straightforward saying that he felt like everyone was trying to tell him what to do and he wasn't into that. He showed them that he is not a puppet. I like the group of ryan, adam and shelia, and I guess matt and natalie have to come along for the ride. Really.. how lucky did natalie get with this?? Sheila came up with this whole idea, sort of, and Natalie just gets lucky to be on their side. HOWEVER, I want to end by saying I'm not hoping for either side to win right now b/c I know someone is coming back and that could change the whole game in one day! We shall see :)

While I like Ryan, and am trying to get over my angst towards him right now, I can't root for his team based solely on who is on it! He loses me with my two least favorite people on the team. And, of course I don't have to tell you who they are. But, if you need a hint, their names rhyme and one starts with an M and ends in atty. The other one starts with the next letter in the alphabet (next to M) and ends in atalie. LOL! But, I also don't like Sheila and, while Adam is ok, I am not his biggest fan. I think I might trade Josh for Adam from Team James but, I still have some love for Josh yet so, I would rather keep hin then trade him. You are right! That whole game could go topsy tervy once whomever is getting voted back in steps back through the door.

Well I go back and forth on Sheila. While I think she was very rude, I am starting to think the things she does and says are b/c she's just trying to fit in. After last night and seeing her say "they are gonna come after us b/c we aren't like them" it was the first time I saw her as an actual adult and not a teeny-booper wanna be.

I actually kind of like ryan too. I feel bad that he went after james instead of josh. josh was the fuel behind all that, james just kind of stood by and went with the group. i hope that sharon is the one to go. although i think matt will vote to keep sharon since he thinks he's playing her and natalie will vote however matt tells her too. Hate to say it but i think its goodbye james this week. ps. i hate matt too!

I know! Josh was the mastermind of the "operation crooked eye" get Matt out campaign. But, James is the fall guy and it is infuriating! Natalie is Matt's puppet and she will do whatever he says! God I wish that girl would get a freaking spine. I don't care if she has to beg, borrow or steal one from someone else in the house or one of the production crew. Just as long as she gets one and finally takes a real stand against Matt! But, even if she did suddenly get a spine and stepped up against Matt, I think it would be a little too late! She gets absolutely no respect from me!

Well I think he put James up b/c James and Chealsea are close. So he figures this way if James goes they are breaking up a partnership. However maybe he doesn't see Sharon as that strong or that close to Josh, so he's not as worried about her. I would be worried about Josh more than James though. Josh is vindictive and he will be out for revenge.

I feel that way about most of the seasons. But, I really do like James. He has a colorful past that may be hard to swallow for some but, it is of no consequence to me and, I think he is a genuinely good guy. They way he jumped right in and took control of the situation when Amanda collapsed was a sight to behold. I think, deep down, he has a lot of character and can be a very loyal person with a lot of heart. The rest of them...maybe not so much. I like Chelsia but, I still see the most character in James. And, yes...most of them have those qualities you love to hate! Particularly Matt and Natalie...and Sheila to some extent!
