At first I was thinking this season was going to be a dud. So far it's off the dud list but remains to be seen if it will be a "good" season. One thing I noticed is that there seem to be more BB knowledgeable players than in years' past. That gives me hope:
Laura--admitted student of the game (not that it helped her)
Casey--appears to have studied up. And hooked up with Jesse prior to the game?
Jesse--heck, he played in the game last year
Ronnie--totally an admitted BB studier
Michelle--yep, she's studied up and yet we don't see much strategy yet except floating.
Chima--not only has she studied up but she know Erica, right?
Russell--definitely has studied up; he is taking a page from Evil D!ck at times with his harrassing techniques.
Nat--she must have studied up, she's doing the $hit stirring, too.
Jeff--not sure if he has made comments to suggest he has studied up...but I sense that he has.
Lydia--I think she's BB aware. Can't think of comments that show it, though.
Kevin--he's definitely into the BB thing. I'm guessing he could name every past houseguest over the past seasons.
That leaves Braden and Jordin. I think Jordin has seen BB, and knows about the people who have had sex on the show, otherwise we wouldn't have had the " no booger" comment. Now whether she has studied how to play BB is a whole 'nother aspect. How does someone from small town NC make it onto the show anyway? Is she supposed to be the Kelly Pickler of the group?
Braden...what do you think? Was he the only one to be clueless? Lol.
