Didn't Jesse do the entire casting for OTT without Robyn? Also, Les Moonves actually takes time to look at the cast, weird. NT

xx * Paul lost due to a bitter jury. Cody was an early juror member. I like Cody, but he was not good at Big Brother. No doubt, had Cody lasted longer in the

01/12/18 03:34 PM
xx * If you must discuss Paul in a Cody thread then Paul had the ability to manipulate all others & had all on his side. The house loved Paul. He could easily sway others to do what he wanted. Cody fail

01/12/18 04:32 PM

Jake81
01/12/18 10:31 PM
xx * Well, Paul was paid $30,000-$40,000 for the season in addition to the $50,000 2nd prize so I think he made more than Cody did. NT
grammypampam
01/17/18 07:31 PM

xx * Josh must have done something and known something about the game. He outsmarted Paul concerning providing jury members with info which helped him to win the game. NT

FurnitureAlliance
01/13/18 01:20 PM

Jake81
01/12/18 10:49 PM

RatFloater
01/12/18 05:36 PM

grammypampam
01/14/18 06:01 PM
xx * Not the stipend but vets usually get money to come back, even Davonne got more money NT
FurlessBat
01/12/18 06:00 PM
xx * That's true that they get a bigger stipend but if they win aka 1st or 2nd place then those winnings replace the stipend. NT

RatFloater
01/12/18 06:27 PM

FurlessBat
01/12/18 03:06 PM

xx * I can see that, Cody's popularity is mostly a statement agains Paul NT
FurlessBat
01/12/18 03:10 PM

diddly
01/12/18 03:16 PM
xx * it is about BB, and all that is relevant, to me pointing out Pauls limitations, (of which he has many) is fair game NT
punxsutawneygal
01/12/18 03:08 PM
xx * The points made about Paul are posted to rebut various attacks against Cody, and they're well made points. They demonstrate that Cody was a much better player than Paul. NT
Jake81
01/12/18 10:52 PM
xx * Just a suggestion but you might get more responses about Paul if you start a Paul thread since they are separate people. NT
diddly
01/12/18 04:36 PM
xx * The reason why Cody can't win anything where a 'team' is required is because he is horrible people person. He's not well liked (but more feel sorry for the underdog). He can win if competing alone NT
diddly
01/12/18 12:44 PM

punxsutawneygal

xx * Cody is working with Jess as a team on TAR and they're doing pretty good so far o/ NT
Sambb19
01/12/18 12:57 PM
xx * Because they are competing alone. They know each other. They aren't working w/other competitors. They are on their on....alone. They couldn't do that in BB. He needed to win people over -fail NT

FurlessBat
01/12/18 04:47 PM

diddly
01/12/18 05:30 PM
xx * BB19 was a very unlikable cast with the odd exception. Much worse than BB15 and on the other end of the likability scale compared to BB17. NT
Corndogger
01/12/18 05:11 PM
xx * Paul couldn't win BB two times in a row, and he couldn't win candy crush while playing as a team member, he caved all three times, plus poor jury management does not a great player make NT
punxsutawneygal

FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 05:23 PM
xx * then there is loser Paul, who was mean spirited, and joyful when others were attacked, that is called pathological NT
punxsutawneygal
01/12/18 02:45 PM
xx * Cody had one goal and that is to win a competition. He actually thought one could win BB by winning competitions and that's it. He should have never been cast. You need to be able to mix w/people NT
diddly
01/12/18 12:48 PM
xx * At least he was trying to win.Why not drag Alex? Miss "I want to lose so I can come back for a 2nd season and get more followers".I would offer up Raven but the poor girl has been beat down enough. NT
Vixter
01/12/18 03:22 PM
xx * Cody has the goal to win, however there is no evidence that it is his only, singular goal, I believe he has others, like being a role model for his child NT
punxsutawneygal
01/12/18 02:46 PM
xx * Cody did very well. He distinguished himself on BB19, won the admiration of most fans, won AFP, stayed for weeks against huge odds, and went straight to TAR - stealing Paul's dream. NT
Jake81
01/12/18 10:40 PM
xx * Great, as he should, but he didn't need to be on a show that he wasn't cut out for to be a good role model. Now he is shacking up w/Jess whom he didn't even know for long had sex on national TV. NT
diddly
01/12/18 05:32 PM
xx * Damn, weirdo Cody gets to sleep with Jess every day, live in her apartment rent free, party at douchey clubs with her hot model friends. He won BB19. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 05:51 PM
xx * But Paul got the admiration of Raven and his dogs. He's got a room at his parents house. And don't forget those T shirts. NT
Jake81
01/12/18 07:33 PM
xx * Skull t-shirts with ironic sayings - Ed Hardy is shaking. NT

RatFloater
01/12/18 06:36 PM

FurlessBat
01/12/18 06:58 PM
xx * They need all types of people in there so I disagree that he shouldn't have been cast or people like him shouldn't. NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:55 PM
xx * But if you don't know how to play nice with others or play as a team, you don't stand much a chance of winning. You need allies. No one liked him but Jess & maybe Mark & Keven felt sorry for him. NT
diddly

punxsutawneygal

FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:28 PM

punxsutawneygal
01/12/18 02:49 PM

xx * Only the finale saved it for me NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 01:13 PM

RatFloater
01/12/18 01:49 PM

Jake81

punxsutawneygal
01/12/18 02:47 PM

RatFloater
01/12/18 12:06 PM

sliver013
01/12/18 12:17 PM
xx * They were literally saying "I'm willing to lose to Paul." so in what way would you consider that a benefit to one's game? Jason, Alex, Xmas, Maven all had said it and the others strongly implied it NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 12:24 PM
xx * people say things in the house... alex and jason didn't even vote for paul so it just doesn't add up. NT
sliver013
01/12/18 12:56 PM
xx * Also, "people say things in the house" isn't really valid when we saw them say it not only to each other away from Paul but also to themselves in private. Meaning they obv meant it.
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:15 PM
xx * You're mixing what happens in jury with what we all saw happen in the house/in-game. Jalex were bitter but it doesn't account for their lack of attempting to play while in-house. Jody at least
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:13 PM
xx * no,we saw alex bitter in the house.each couple thought they worked themselves into a f3 with paul...are we really denying this? that was their strategy it's that simple. yes,i have always said
sliver013
01/12/18 01:29 PM
xx * Alex was angry when she realized that she got played and said things like "f*ck friendship" but she also said he had her vote and that she'd convince Jason as well which I believe she would've done
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:45 PM
xx * The stardust had finally gotten knocked out of Alex's eyes by the time voting came around NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:58 PM

sliver013
01/12/18 01:05 PM
xx * Paul dominated because others weren't playing. There's a reason why people called them minions, sheep, followers, etc. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:18 PM
xx * he made them feel comfortable sitting back... we all saw him telling them to do that also. NT
sliver013

RatFloater

sliver013
01/12/18 01:32 PM

FurnitureAlliance

Belle
01/12/18 02:53 PM
xx * You are right, Belle, Cody the loser did quit. Things weren't going his way so he took his ball and went home. He isolated himself with Jess and refused to talk game to others. He's a loser. NT
Blockhead
01/12/18 01:43 PM
xx * he is not a loser. he just quit because he couldn't see any way to win. NT
Belle
01/12/18 01:57 PM
xx * He did try though. Dont forget he worked on Jalex who were in control at that time. It nearly worked too. I feel he had Alex wanting to keep him but she just felt she couldnt go against Paul. NT
Vixter
01/12/18 12:46 PM
xx * Alex didn't even consider it for a second. His only chance was winning a comp/losing that DoT safety comp. Alex was Paul's top tier minion. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 12:52 PM
xx * For a while but he did come up with arguments to make, so he really didn't quit. NT

01/12/18 12:35 PM
xx * thank you, never have i seen so many excuses for someone quitting in bb... especially with 2 weeks left,three if they had won the rk and veto the week they blew off the comps. we usually hate

FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:36 PM
xx * What is worse, quitting or not playing at all? At least quitting requires an attempt. Most didn't even attempt to play just sat back and waited for instructions. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 12:09 PM
xx * Thats how I see it. NT
Vixter
01/12/18 12:52 PM
xx * i don't consider being a follower not playing... one will usually rise to the top no matter how strong the group of individuals. that's just human nature. NT
sliver013
01/12/18 12:19 PM
xx * I understand the need to play along with an alliance but one has to at least try and formulate a plan towards a successful win. None of them did that. All said they wanted Paul in final 2 bc they
RatFloater
01/12/18 12:28 PM
xx * then why didn't they vote for him?the truth is that 4 different pairs thought they were going to final 3 with paul where they would have the odds. not the best strategy but it's something, they
sliver013
01/12/18 12:49 PM
xx * Because they were bitter for realizing that their way of thinking (or lack of thinking) in the house was completely asinine. The bitter jury is the one thing I do agree on but discrediting Jody
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:00 PM
xx * their way of thinking was their strategy and yes i do agree that it was asinine. NT
sliver013
01/12/18 01:21 PM
xx * That's just it tho, there really was no thought given. It started as, let's follow the leader to eventually, the leader should win. So how is that not giving up/quitting? NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:30 PM
xx * i just don't think it is especially when you think you have a solid f3... if you think so it's fine, we all have our opinions. NT
sliver013
01/12/18 01:39 PM
xx * Yeah Alex believed that "Friendship" was Paul's brand and he couldn't go against it. Actually "deadskull" is his brand. NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 01:23 PM
xx * I think they thought the audience would love them for being with Paul and they would get famous for it so they didn't need to win. NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:38 PM
xx * they could be with paul AND have the advantage in a f3 situation... win-win. NT
sliver013
01/12/18 01:00 PM
xx * But instead he humiliated them and made them look dumb. Kiss of death. NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 01:07 PM
xx * Regardless of their reasons as to why, it shows that none of them even attempted to play. So I ask, what is worse: Attempting to play and failing or sitting on the sidelines waiting to be
RatFloater
01/12/18 12:48 PM
xx * Of course it's better to try. I've said before that maybe the prize money needs to go up to weed out some of these people who just want followers and not to win the game (X I'm taking to you) NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:54 PM
xx * He did try. He tried to win comps that could have saved him, but he was not able to win every one of them. That's not quitting. That's getting beat by a stacked deck favoring Paul and his sheep. NT

Matzak
01/12/18 11:45 AM

sliver013
01/12/18 11:31 AM
xx * Without Cody winning the return, BB19 would have died then, instead of waiting until Cody was evicted and sent to jury. Even then, Cody saved the season by giving BB its best finale ever! NT
Jake81
01/12/18 11:24 AM
xx * Cameron should of been able to play as paul should never of been cast. by returning paul flushed his bb reputation down the toilet, where it actually belongs. NT
Matzak
01/12/18 11:16 AM
xx * Matzak, BB19 would have been so much better if Paul had never entered the season. It became polluted the instant the garden gnome arrived. NT
Jake81
01/12/18 11:33 AM
xx * yep. Jody did however became the stars of the season and are on there way to even bigger success! the finale thanks to Cody is BB Legendary! NT
Matzak
01/12/18 11:44 AM

FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:40 PM

xx * Absolutely! NT
Vixter
01/12/18 10:45 AM
xx * 100% in agreement! NT
Matzak
01/12/18 10:03 AM
xx * Cody was NOT a good fit for BB & should have never been on. You need to be social & know how to work w/people. He is definitely not a people person. He's more a loner that likes to compete. NT
diddly
01/12/18 07:26 AM
xx * I agree that Cody doesn't have the personality to win BB but most of the cast in any given season doesn't have the tools to win. Casting is about more than a person's ability to win. It's about
olfactoryhues
01/12/18 10:35 AM
xx * YES very true NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:43 PM
xx * Cody was brilliant casting for BB19. Without him, the season would have stumbled out of the gate, instead of being interesting the first 7 weeks. And Cody saved the finale night from being boring. NT
Jake81
01/12/18 11:22 AM
xx * I see your point and agree. He's got to improve his social skills. But the enjoyment he brought, for me at least, with his "kiss my ass production" attitude was soo enjoyable! The show definitely

xx * Jessica's video was past the 3 minute limit, guess they just liked her already and let it through :P NT
Sambb19
01/11/18 10:04 PM
xx * Recruits get special treatment. Partly why BB is a shell of its former self. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 01:43 AM
xx * Jess was a recruit? Didn't sound like it NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 12:45 PM
xx * You think it was just a coincidence that she worked at the same place as the Nolan twins? NT
titan9
01/15/18 02:47 AM
xx * Yeah, she said it on feeds. I believe it was Chris Catalano(?), Robyn's casting partner that found her. But yes, recruits usually get moved to the next round quite easily. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 02:13 PM
xx * Recruits don't have to do videos. This is the first time I've heard that Jess said on the feeds that she was recruited. NT
Corndogger
01/12/18 04:50 PM
xx * Everyone has to either submit a video or do an on-camera interview regardless of how you're picked. They want to see how you translate on camera. And yes, Jess mentioned on feeds she's a recruit. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 05:21 PM
xx * That could explain why her strategies weren't the best NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 05:31 PM
xx * Her strategy wasn't great for many reasons but for a recruit she actually knows the show pretty well. Most recruits have never seen or heard of BB. Ex. Paul. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 06:09 PM
xx * She seemed like a big day 1 fan in her video so I was kind of surprised how bad she was at strategy NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/12/18 06:31 PM
xx * she was not super super terrible, I think Cody's influence ruined her game NT
FurlessBat
01/12/18 06:59 PM
xx * True, I still think she had potential as a player and as a character but a lot of factors (some she created on her own) worked against her. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 06:56 PM
xx * She had potential but didn't play like a person who had watched every season NT
FurnitureAlliance
01/13/18 12:13 PM
xx * Codys poignant thoughts on Jessicas video...
Vixter
01/11/18 08:18 PM

madjellybean

colleenag
01/12/18 03:09 AM

Jake81
01/11/18 09:21 PM

punxsutawneygal
01/12/18 09:58 AM
xx * Same here. It always looked like a show I would like but it took Jody to get me started. NT
Bobbo2
01/11/18 09:38 PM
xx * The season Brenchel was on TAR against teams like Dave & Rachel was super good. Very competitive, lots of conflict, etc. Dave & Rachel were an amazing team--possibly the best ever. Worth watching

Corndogger
01/11/18 08:11 PM
xx * He applied for bb15. Then Survivor last year. NT
jammin_jen
01/11/18 08:50 PM

Corndogger
01/11/18 09:20 PM
xx * Robyn had nothing to do with the Cody casting. Cody mentioned in his backyard interview that it was Jessie Tannenbaum (casting director for OTT) that put him on the show. NT
RatFloater
01/12/18 08:31 PM
xx * Listen to that interview again. Rob asks him "I don't even understand how you got on this show?!" Cody starts looking around and says "Ask Robyn Kass." Then Jess interrupts and says "...it was a Julie
Corndogger
01/12/18 09:52 PM
xx * Didn't Jesse do the entire casting for OTT without Robyn? Also, Les Moonves actually takes time to look at the cast, weird. NT
RatFloater
01/13/18 01:22 AM

janie8
01/11/18 08:32 PM

01/11/18 07:30 PM
xx * Cody's was hilarious because he was the exact opposite in the house. Does this mean that Survivor chose Ben over Cody? NT
RatFloater
01/11/18 05:40 PM
xx * They film multiple Survivor seasons in a year, the most recent survivor could have been shot before Cody auditioned. NT
Sambb19
01/11/18 05:46 PM

RatFloater
01/11/18 06:11 PM
