True. But this early in the game, I think it's brilliant, since there aren't any "real" alliances, it gives you insight to their personal feelings that even the feeds can't serve up -- plus it's live. I definitely agree on principle, but this early in the game it's a great indicator, because they have such little time to respond.
Last night showed that it was clearly seven-on-three. It works when there are even alliances, but usually it is unfair.

On tonight's Eliminator challenge, how did they know the answers so quickly? I couldn't even hear the whole questions. I would also need time to think about them.
I believe that they put the answer choices down on the podium (there was a point where Dustin looked down near his buzzer) - it makes it slightly easier.
Incidentally, I like Eliminator, but not for the evicted HGs; a competition about them should be about who knows the most about the evicted HGs instead of who's quick on the draw. Something like the first HOH that Janelle won would've been good and then they could use Eliminator for something else, maybe about the house in general.

I'm pretty sure this is the first season they've voted live this early in the season. In previous seasons, they didn't start the live voting until about halfway through the season, presumably because it would have taken too much time to show more than 6 or so live votes. When they did the pre-recorded voting (I think they did that in Week 1 this year, then went to live voting for Week 2) I think they were pretty strict about discussing their vote in the house.
Anyway, even though I had them last season, I'm having trouble remembering - doesn't Big Brother usually scold the HGs for discussing how they voted after they voted? Actually, now that I'm thinking of it, the HGs usually vote live, so nevermind me.

I was also thinking it be cool if America could vote to place some sort of clue somewhere in the house. Something like, "A houseguest is lying about their age." It wouldn't specifically name the person, and the person who finds it must be sworn to secrecy not to tell anyone else in the house - like they get slop for a week or a penalty nom if they do. It could also be an America's Vote situation. CBS/Grodner could pick what the choices could be, and run an online poll along the same lines as the slop plus chitlins polls of this season. But if they did this like, every week starting with week 2 or 3, there would be lotsa clues out there, lotsa paranoid hgs wondering if each other has a clue, what it is, how it helps them, what it really means, etc. If there's gonna be producer interference, then let's have fun with it!
But that would totally ratchet up the paranoia, doncha think?

I've been wanting another Pressure Cook type comp so bad. Those are the best. They never do stuff like that anymore though (not even on Survivor). I guess they don't want to run the risk that they'll go on forever and disrupt the production schedule or something.
I'd love to see another pressure cooker competition cause it's all about will power. Who is willing to stay there for however long it takes to win.
I used to really want them to do stuff like MyLisa and shantastic suggested to just mess with HGs and raise the paranoia, but this season's rampant paranoia has been really hard to watch so I no longer want to see the show actually try and cause paranoia (well, more than they probably currently do in the DR).

And how sad is it that the faceplants in that mattress obstacle course were more fun than anything Wipeout has churned out this summer?

It's kinda of exciting because normally we know basically what kind of comp and when it'll be, but this year they might switch it up.
