I've waited to reserve judgment. But now I'm quite sure I don't like the way this AP thing is coming down.
I don't like Eric's attitude, the way he says "You've got it right America" when he is told who to target (Jen - which is really suspicious, since she's almost tied for first place in the popularity poll on CBS's BB site). I didn't like the way he declares himself to be some kind of cassanova or whatever, and that's why Nick had to go, in his words. Eric is just too subjective to properly do what "we" want him to do. But I'm not sure anyone else could do any better.
I just don't feel that this twist is accomplishing what the producers intended, which was to let America get into the game to an extent.
I now like Jen, but I didn't at first. But Eric seems convinced that America continues to hate her. So does he think he's doing us all a big favor by jumping all over her and almost popping his eyeballs out like he did during the competition when he was screaming at Jen? That action was frankly very self-serving (took the spotlight off himself).
And to see all these people getting all discombobulated about a stray vote! How is that so important to their game? I don't get it. I guess the producers could not have foreseen this.
But let me say one more thing: the person who flew the banner has gotten the game influenced in the very way we all wish we could when we are sitting at home getting upset because our favorite player is getting lied to, or we wish so-and-so would get put up because we don't like them. The banner-person is at least getting some satisfaction for their money. More power to them, I say! Eric may feel frustrated that something he has no control over (the banner) has hindered his game. Well, now he knows how we ALL feel when we want someone to win HOH or POV or get evicted, but we are POWERLESS to do anything about it. I voted double figures to get someone else nominated, but to no avail.
So, CBS, kill it now! Eric is not working for me!!
