Boy is he on the wrong show. And for someone who describes himself as "outgoing" he's sure quiet so far.

Maybe it's just me, but I think he looks exactly like Steven from BB10.

If this guy were any more laid back, he'd be dead.

I appreciate he's VERY low key. I don't want a house full of Rachel's. I'm also happy to have some cute BEEF to look at.

He has a very dry sense of humor which I like. His DRs crack me up.

Watching him manipulate Britney really makes me dislike him. Not that I particularly like her, but the way he does it reminds me of those pick up artists manipulations. Subtly insult her then bring her back up, then knock her down again.

I don't know if Lane's studied it as part of being a salesman, or if he's a natural, but it makes me not like him.

I don't mind Lane's manipulation of Britney since she so gleefully does the same exact thing to literally every other person in the house: Kathy, Rachel, Brendon, Enzo, Kristen, etc.

From the episode thread:

Real men don't bring flowers. They take you to a bar and buy you shots.

Lane's future wife is one lucky, lucky woman.


And if he's REALLY into her, he'll let her watch him beat her boyfriend up for her!

Yeah, he's God's gift to women, all right -- but only if God shops at the bargain-basement bin at K-Mart.

What about his statement tonight that losing Brit is like his best dog dying. Great guy.

Yes, that will be really comforting to her. The sad thing is that he clearly meant it as proof of how much he cares for her.

I was rooting for Lane until I read this--it's a transcript from a live feed from over the weekend.....I hope it's out of context, or it is just a really, really bad joke, but it's pretty awful.

Sadly, it's not, and it's been discussed a lot in the Live Feeds thread. In a way, I'm not surprised, since it just drives home what a misogynistic douchebag Lane really is (as if we hadn't seen enough evidence of that courtesy of his fantasies about beating up women's boyfriends in front of them and his comparing Britney's eviction to his having to put down his favorite dog.)

That transcript has me thinking a little better about Enzo. My question is how can Brittany consider him a good guy and a friend. Yuck!

Again, in the show, he compares the competition to a bar fight. Exactly how many fights has this guy been in?? I was amazed that he'd paid enough attention to win the comp. Poor Ragan, he was studying so hard for this one and he never got a chance.

ETA: Wonder how many other situations this guy could work a bar fight metaphor into. Here's some that'd be tricky: Nephew's first Holy Communion; attending the Houston Opera; watching a speech by the President; rescuing a kitten from a tree.

ETA again: Hey, Cyric29, don't jump to conclusions! That could have been ANY pair of football players named Lane and Gunter Elenberg!

Lane gets my vote for worst houseguest, ever. Evel Dick and other losers, at least had enough self-awareness to know they were being seen as bad guys. Lane seems to think that we all see him as a big ol' lovable teddy bear and that we probably hear his animal shooting, men beating, women abusing stories and laugh admiringly.

I blame his parents. Good people can end up with bad kids, but when kids do bad things and expect people to think it's cute, then they almost always had parents who took the attitude that," boys will be boys," my kid is always right and the teacher/coach/other kid with the broken arm is wrong. I'll bet Lane's parents are the type who take great pride in their boys just because they're big.

Mostly, I'm blaming his parents because Enzo suggested Lane wasn't raised right and he got real mad. Heh.

Lame is a pig. He's going to be fat and bald by the time he's 30. I can't believe he's only 24. He's just white trash with money. Please don't let him win. As much as I disliked Britney, I hated the way he manhandled her so roughly. He is a dipshit - that's what she said. Do you think he gets that yet?

I loved how he stopped just short of calling Shane a fairy during the Brigade update. Douche.
