Will and Mike's mothers don't seem at all surprised about their kids.
How many siblings and parents really ever get to see the highlights of 24 footage of their loved ones? I'd bet some folks would be really surprised at how their husbands/wives/kids act sometimes.
I knew one guy that would swear a blue streak constantly at work, but when on the phone with his wife, he'd be another person entirely.

That doesn't make it ok. Just because your friends jumped off of a bridge...etc.
But I'm relatively new to watching this show. I've only been watching since Nakomas was kicked out. (and I was rooting for her too.) I haven't seen Janelle lie, cheat, deceive, or backstab anyone, unless you count the time she tried to help Boogie win the Veto so she could kick out Diane.
She made a pretty clumsy attempt at deceit there, but it fooled no one. She wanted a floater to go out, which is what that team had been doing for weeks.

>I think not. They stack the deck. It

Does that make dishonesty and deceit ok? It might be good tv, but that doesn't make it ok.
>And as it was so stated earlier. Anyone with any
>common sense can see that.
I guess I don't have common sense, because I think Danielle isn't playing well. She's just being set up as the next target after Janelle by Will. CT has been protecting her, and they may try to protect Janelle next so as to have all the fights centered around those two.
>Oh and by the way - The World Wrestling Federation -
>Ummmmm guess what, its not real. It's just good TV.
So you're suggesting that these people are running entirely scripted lives 24 hours a day as the WWF episodes are scripted?
I also disagree that the wwf is good tv. lol.
The fact that this show is an artificial environment full of people with strong personalities doesn't make dishonesty, backstabbing, and cheating honorable activities.
The fact is that how they act in the house is a generally good indicator of how they would act in real life in conflict. Would it be ok to lie, cheat, and backstab someone in normal life because you could win half a million bucks in the process?
Their personalities don't suddenly become capable of deceit and trickery merely because they are on tv now. They had those traits before. It's just more obvious now because it's more of a stressful situation.
