CBS Interactive — big brother 19
What happened this year to BB? I have been watching since season 1. Every year I can't wait for BB, it makes my summer. I purchase the live feeds every year.
I am very disappointed in production this year on 19. It is so obvious that for some reason you took Paul back this season, which ruined it for all of this season's players.in addition, you gave him 4 weeks of safety so that he couldn't be voted out. This ruined it for Cody (and Jessica), because they were playing the game the way it's always been played. Paul is controlling every one in the house, and I realize that is part of the game, but the 4 weeks of safety from the beginning of the game started this. Another production bad move, you kept Christmas in the game, and she is not capable to play the game like everyone else. She is excused from most competitions, and if she couldn't compete in the veto, she should not have been able to use the hex that allowed her to take a player's place (Cody). She should have been sent home and you could have had one less double eviction.
The final thing is production allowing Josh to bang pots and pans to a point where it invokes violence (again instigated by Paul). It should have been immediately stopped, not waiting weeks before production finally did the right thing.
You are making the season look very "fixed", and even though I am hoping it just looks that way, this has been the worst season in Big Brother history.
