    This season was not entertaining at all, unless you just want to see personal attacks and not game play. I agree with a lot of other viewers BB needs to bring in different ages of house guest and not change the show into the real world. And put some real New Jersey people in the house not these fake stereo type. Come on BB you need to hire a new casting crew.

    I am a grandmother who’s been watching the show for years. The racist, homophobic, nasty, ignorant things said by Aaryn, Gina, Amanda, and Spencer make it difficult to watch. It is supposed to be a competition. I hope that Candace, Helen and Andy are safe. There are threats of violence. Is CBS prepared for that and the following lawsuits, I don’t think they are. I want to see the outcome. This is the last season for me.

    Get rid of the trouble makers, those that say ” trashy ” comments about others, I know there is talk, that is not talk.
    Maybe get some older contestants. Perhaps some know actor’s and actress’s mixed in the group.
    I like the show, and want it renewed.

    Ratings keep going down on this has been show. Try bring in different type in like in previous years. more older people, more unusual people like the Tommy Lee look a like. Enough with the brain dead “beautiful” ones.
