I noticed that in several threads that people brought up the racial issue in the house as opposed to "real" life. I know that this is more of a bash than a spoil but I thought I would add to it.
I would like to point out some other differences, which affects some of my interest in the show.
1. The "average" woman in US is a size 12. If the house followed this rule half of house would be greater than size 12. I don't think any of the female HGs in any of the houses have reached a size 12, let alone one being over it.
2. A good amount of the population is in the "baby-boomer" group, which is now mostly over 50. If these shows reflected reality, then about 40% of the guests would be over 50. Just think if some one "old" was in there. They could say to some of these whiners Grow Up and really mean it.
3. A lot of the guys seem to be "pretty boys" with more interest in their bodies and hair than I think most men have.
4. A good number of the guys who are gay fall into a stereotype of gays. Most of the gay men that I've known do not talk or act like Will and others. In fact, I knew a gay black man, who happened to be named Marvin BTW, and he talked and acted much more like Marvin than like Will. His sense of humor was much stronger but not quite as cutting as Marvin's is.
What all of this means is that my desire to see who wins swings from week to week because I don't really see anyone in the BB house who is like me or my friends. I watch more for how the little mice loose their minds and I would much more like BB to mess with said minds than I might otherwise because I don't see these mice as "regular people."
That may be why outsiders like Nokomis and CB stand out as being so different. In a house that really reflected reality, they might not. After all, I know many people who are as clumsy and gauky as CB and who are obviously dyslexic like him too. Some of these people are even Senators and others held in high esteem. And people who hold strange ideas (like UFOs, aliens, paranormal, etc.) are also out in real world.
Just some late night thoughts pulling together random strands of previous threads.
