Game. The comps are there to serve the greater purpose of BB. It's a show about humans, relationships, the twists and comps facilitate the complexities of human behaviors. Survival of the fittest, good of oneself vs good for all in ones "clique," the food chain, who is at the top vs who as at bottom, how does one get to the top, etc...... so bottom line, a great or even good social game is what's important, winning comps is great to keep oneself in the game but what happens when or if that fails?
