Ok...you all know how I feel about Dan! I want him to win this season! So, I was elated when he won HOH tonight! Yay! That ensures that he will make it to final 3 and I am thrilled. Now, all that needs to happen is that Jerry not win POV and I will be thrilled because, even if Keesha wins next to Memphis of Dan, I will at least have seen 3 people in the end that I don't totally hate. I don't adore Keesha but, over others that have been evicted, I am ok with her getting to the end if not Memphis and Dan together! How about all of you? Were you thrilled to see Dan win HOH?

You know How i feel about Dan and winning ....doesn't seem to be far away for him..look at how close he is in everything else..seconds away from the winner sometimes..and then now won the Luxury contest..he is the best player and if this stupid Jury doesn't see that, then boy are they holding grudges for what? isn't that why they wanted to be a part of this GAME! Jerry's out if he doesn't win pov and then Keesha..M and D final 2!

I know! I really hope the jury uses their brains instead of the angsty hearts to vote. Can they get past their jealousy and anger? I hope so. I might cry if Jerry gets the POV. LOL! So, let's keep our fingers crossed. And anything else that we can comfortably cross, crossed! LOL!

Oh Star Reporter/Brain Twin! I guess I'm ok with it! I don't really care at this point. There's only one more to go and I'm not sure if I want him and Memphis in the final two. It won't be Keesha and I doubt Jerry. But I guess it's up to whoever gets the POV and my guess is it might go to Memphis. We'll see. What did you think of Apey's speech about not doing anything to embarrass herself and then Ollie asking her to be his girlfriend. Wait till he gets home! What a friggen idiot!

LOL I really don't know if April will get a clue when this is all over and she sees the tapes of the show or not. She needs to. I think she really believes what she said. Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who think they never do anything wrong. They can't see their own faults. I don't know that Ollie is smart enough to catch on outside the house just what kind of woman April is. But who knows? Being in that house can blind people to the truth and then it is right there in plain sight when they are out. Wonder how long that relationship will last.

I almost puked too when April said that. I don't know why she hates Keesha so much except she is jealous of her.

I do believe that she is jealous of Keesha and I also think that she doesn't have a clue as to how she has come off looking like a complete disgusting ho and I do hope her family or someone lets her know when she returns to her "real" life! Wait till Ollie brings his new girlfriend home to meet Daddy and wants to bring her to church!

I was happy that Dan won HOH, I knew you would be too. Jerry knows his number is coming up and will be leaving. He is so lame how he is trying to get some brownie points, its too late for him now. I was sorry that Renny had to leave, she is a true lady, I do like her. I have read some of your other comments on previous discussions, you are right about the Jury choosing the winner based on game play. I feel that Dan has a better chance of winning against Memphis, he has the car and the other HG are not going to want him to win it all. Sure some of them don't like Dan but the ones that are going in to the Jury house do like him. The big thing is that Jerry cannot win the POV, or the next HOH. What the heck are we going to watch on tv when BB ends for the season.

Amazing Race is my next favorite reality show. I haven't watched it in a couple years, but the ones I did watch I loved to see how people grew....not all of them...but many of them got so much more out of the experience than just the money and trying to win no matter how they had to step on the others' toes. I do always get a little bit excited when spring comes around because I know there will be another Big Brother coming on soon. I wonder if they will start having 2 a year from now on? That would be cool. I also liked watching Rock Star...but they didn't have one this summer. Can you believe someone my age would like Rock Star?

Hello you two! Renny was fun to watch! So, it was a bit bitter sweet to see her leave tonight. I hope I'm right that the jury will give the 1st prize to Dan if he makes it to final 2! He really deserves it. I will be watching Amazing Race so, we can discuss that. And, I did read that there will be another BB on this winter. But, I heard that a few months ago. I don't know if they will go through with it or if they will change their minds. If they do, I sure hope they get some new ideas because they have been pretty light on the twists this summer. They need to step up their game because some people are starting to lose interest. No me! I think I will always love this show too much to lose interest. But, others have.

I lauughed as jerry was stating that all the women in the JH stated they'd vote for any woman in the finals. They renegades laughed so hard knowing Aprils felisngs for Keesha. Hahaha! That man is so out of the money it's unreal. And he thinks he has a chance. HAHAHAHA! If the JH votes for the person playing the best game, they have to vote Dan. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I was so happy to see Dan win HOH. It does ensure that he is going to the final 3. I honestly want him to win this season and I think that he deserves it. He took alot of flack from the houseguests and I think he should win the entire season. I guess we will just have to wait and see who goes to the final 2.

Same here! I did the happy dance where my rear was planted on my couch and I just bounced about pumping my fists in the air in between shouts of "Yay Dan!" and clapping my hands! I really want him to win too because he played BB really well. He played it differently than what we have seen while incorporating some old tactics too. He brought some fun and humor into the game and that Veto speech he gave with the Roullette and putting Michelle up, brilliant! I loved it! And, boy did he ever take flack from other HGs throughout the season. From being called Judas to having his religion, his Bible, his career and his relationship with Monica (his girlfriend) called into question. And, not only did he take a lot of flack but, he took it with class. He could have lost his temper a half a dozen or more times but, he never did. You have to hand it to him for being able to keep his cool so well. Goooooooooooooo Dan!

I really do feel for Dan because of all the flack that he took. And yes he took it all in strides and with class and the upmost dignity. Not like alot of the other ones to say the least. However some were only defending themselves like the time that Memphis and Jerry had a go at it calling Memphis a womanizer. That was not cool at all.

What show are you talking about? I saw someone mention amazing race, but I didn't think that was going on yet. My fiance is crazy about amazing race and would like for us to be on it one day.

I might be the one who mentioned Amazing Race, because in one of these BB discussions the question was asked what would we watch once BB was over. I answered that I would be watching Amazing Race, and mentioned Rock Star too, but that hasn't been on this season.

Sorry Banadux! I usually title my discussions Big Brother 10: and then the subtitle but, I dropped the ball this time! Sorry about that! We will be discussing Amazing Race when it starts too. And, in case you didn't know...the new season of Amazing Race starts September 28th at 8 pm. Also, thank you to Plunk and Cap for helping me answer Banadux's question! Sorry again Banadux! I try not to forget to put Big Brother 10 in the title but, my head must have been elsewhere when I started this one!

It's a game and I think Dan has played the very best game of any of the HG's in this episode. If people believe him that is their problem. That is part of the game, just like in any game that requires strategy of some kind to win. Dan's strategy is what it is and it has been working. I really doubt that anyone on the inside is the same on the outside because it is a totally different situation than real life is. I don't know that I would ever trust anyone of any of the BB seasons just based on their behaviors in the BB house. All the things Dan has been doing has been gameplay. He is a coach. He knows how to size up the competition. And he knows how to play the game. Apparently he has done the best job of knowing what to expect in competitions and has come prepared, such as wearing that jacket that Ollie complained about so much. Had Ollie been prepared, he would have worn one too. Like someone else said...jackets can come off if not needed, but sure come in handy when they are needed. In fact, if you really think about it, Dan has let us in on most of what he has been doing the entire game through his comments in the diary room. He has been playing the game in there, and telling us how he is playing it. So, yeh, maybe I would trust him. He knows the difference from reality and the game whereas some of the other players leave you wondering if they can tell the difference.

Pickles, I think that Dan will be true to Memphis too. He may pretend like he will sell Memphis down the river to Jerry or Keesha but, he really wants to take Memphis to the final 2 with him and, I think that he would move heck and high water to do so. I think that I would trust Dan for the same reasons that Cap mentioned. He has been straight forward with us the viewers. And, I have always thought that the BB house is a place of greed, dishonesty, and your basic run of the mill low life activity. Regardless of Dan's religious beliefs and whatever deal he made with God, that is for him to answer to in the end. I prefer to leave God out of it altogether. So, I won't hold it against him because, he made his bed, let him figure out what to do with it. I do think that he can separate himself from the Dan in the house and the Dan outside of the house. His only goal and job right now is to win that money...just like everyone else and, that usually means breaking your word to someone somewhere in the game.

Dan is the man nowdays. He has turned into one of the better BB players in history I feel. I also love the scheming and plotting by Dan and Mephis about the luxury comp/trip. Sneaky sneaky. Go Renegades. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Same here! I can see it going either way if it is Memphis and Dan in the end. There are valid arguments for either of them winning the 1st prize when you try to delve inside the minds of the jurers. I can't wait to see who wins this and, really hope that I finally get to see someone I actually like win it! LOL!

Yeah I was also glad to see Dan win this one. He stands a good chance of winning it all or at least something. We all know the jury house can be weird in how they vote. The only thing i dont want is Keesha to be in the final two no way its gotta be dan and memphis. Im pretty sure Jerry is out of there lol unless he wins pov he stands no chance of staying.

Same here. Actually, I did a discussion on who won the POV and I also started another discussion on the plan that is going on between Dan and Memphis right now. I won't spoil it here in case you haven't seen it yet. I won't know if you have until I get caught up with my responses. But,it is juicy to say the least.

Dan is my favorite by far! I've liked him since the beginning! So I'm excited too. I like Keesha too- She has grown on me in the last month or so. I first liked Michelle until Jessie was given the boot. Then she annoyed me way too much!

It took a few weeks before I started liking Dan but, I have liked him for most of this season. I loved Stephen until he was gone. And, I didn't like Michelle at first, then I started liking her and, the same as you, after Jessie got the boot, I stopped liking her. She just started acting too much like a victim. Wah! Get over it! LOL!

I was so so happy when Dan won HOH. He is by far my fav this season too. Although he has done some (what the other players would say)dishonest things, this is big brother, I think he is playing awesome, he gets out of the craziest situations and he in my opinion deserves to win. I hope he gets to the final 2 but I don't think he will have the votes to win, even though I want him to.
@cortjo73 (6500)

I agree. I don't think that anyone can play this game to win it and do so while being completely honest from beginning to end. You are going to have to say one thing and do another and, that is what Dan has done. But, while he has done that, he has also been pretty true to Memphis. Down to telling Memphis he intended to put him up on the block 2 weeks ago and then doing so. He could have kept that from Memphis but, he told him he had a plan and he managed to see that plan come to fruition. I also don't know that Dan will get 1st prize unless people really do look only at the person who played the best game. And, that is Dan.

I was so excited that Dan won. Boy, Keesha didn't have a clue did she! It was sad to see Renny leave. I felt bad for her to be against Keesha and I was happy to see that they didn't try to sway votes against each other. I have been starting to like keesha more and more these last few weeks~ since Libra left. I would love to see Dan, Memphis and Keesha as the final 3. Now they only have to win that POV and get Jerry out and they are all set. I must say, Jerry was being a smart player last night. He was trying to cover his bases by telling everyone that memphis made an alliance with everyone in the house. I thought for a minute Keesha was going to fall into Jerrys trap. If Jerry were smart, he would have alligned with Renny. That way he could have gotten either Dan or Memphis out easy because Renny wouldn't vote out Keesha. Too bad he wasn't that smart, but good for our favorite players.

You know, I hate to say this but, I have sort of been liking Keesha too. Not a lot but, enough that if she wins it, it won't break my heart. Once you get past her voice, her laugh and that face she makes that looks like she just ate a fart, she is ok. LOL! I, however, did not think it was smart for Jerry to go telling everyone that Memphis was making deals with everyone because he knows that Dan and Keesha do like Memphis and it would have come across as a desperate last minute effort to make Dan and Keesha turn against Memphis. Which, it did. He was telling the truth for once but, it still didn't work because they just thought that it was a lie anyway and it made Jerry look worse in their eyes, than he already does. Here's to hope that they keep him from getting the POV and it is them in the final 3.

I was very glad to see Dan win HOH tonight. I don't want Jerry to be in the house after this next eviction. Now I am trying to figure out how the jury will vote. They don't like Dan I don't think. But they also don't like Memphis. If it comes down to Keesha being one of the final 2 I think she might win. But then three of the ladies don't like her, but the other jurors do. And whoever gets evicted this time likes her also. So if she is in the final 2 with either of the guys, she probably would win since the guys are not liked. If they vote purely by who played the best game, it would have to go to Dan. He really did a good job with the game. If the guys end up in final 2 it is just going to be about which one they don't like more...so it could end up being Memphis winning. Even with his last ditch deals with everyone in the house except Renny, I think they would vote for him. I want to see Dan win though. But you are right...this is the first season that the final people in the house have been people I liked instead of ones I didn't want to see there.

Yea...I think that Keesha would have the best chance of winning against any of the remaining guys too. But, it is hard to figure out because each person in that jury house has something against each person left in the house. I think! LOL! Libra hates everyone. For that matter, so does April. Ollie and April most definitely hate Dan at this point, as does Michelle. Libra may not hate either Memphis or Dan but, she doesn't like Jerry and hates Keesha. Apey hates Keesha so, if Jerry made it, she would likely vote for him. Renny loves Keesha so, if she made it, she would give her vote to Keesha over any of those guys. If it comes down to Dan and Memphis, that is a tough call but, I think that Renny would give it to Dan because she has been very vocal about disliking Memphis. Ugh! And around and around it goes. LOL!
