Dick. Has. Got. To. Go.

Period.

These assholes producing BB8 are despicable for keeping him around.

I'm glad Dick is in, he's made the show interesting. Could you imagine if he wasn't on the show how dreadfully boring it would be. And the other thing to is that this is a gameshow, let's not forget that, and Dick is completely within in the rules of the game regardless if people personally don't like his actions.

What's the difference between the Nerd Herd cowering in the HOH bad mouthing Dick and Dani with things like they're incestuous or Dick openly expressing his feelings to their face? Indeed he is a pig and his language is over the top but I'd rather have an honest Dick than little twirps like Amber and Eric spewing their hatred behind my back.

Ding! Ding! Ding!

Dick is a lowlife.
I wonder what's going to happen with the POV this week.

I see your point. But Dick is verbally abusive. If you're following the feeds or following those who are, I think this is much more clear. Based on what they show on TV, I wouldn't think there's any reason for him to be kicked out of the house. But what they don't show is MUCH worse. I'm not entirely certain that Dick could get away with these kinds of verbal assaults outside the house, so why should he be allowed to get away with it in the house?

My issue isn't that Dick is a "dick" (pun intended of course). There have been plenty of unpleasant people on BB over the years--Mike "Boogie", Maggie and ONH (Original Nerd Herd) come to mind, but none of them crossed the line in quite the way that Dick has, in my opinion.

I think it is funny how the show is edited to make them look nicer than they are......

Maybe we are not as nice as we would like to think we are too:O)

I do have the feeds and watch daily when I get the time.

What I think it comes down to is completely personal opinion. I don't find what he says as verbally abusive in the context of the game as it's part of the game.

The NH2 are dishing out the same stuff behind closed doors and in fact even when Jam and Amber were arguing with Dick they said some pretty bad words, though his vocabulary is slightly more imaginative. It still boils down to the same verbal tit for tat.

Where has he crossed the line where the others haven't? Eric and Dick calling Dick and Dani incestuous, Jam calling Dick's mother a bitch, Amb telling Dick he should commit suicide. I mean c'mon, just because they don't have witty comebacks and a decent vocab doesn't mean they aren't as bad as Dick.

At the end of the day these things are all within the rules of the game and if someone doesn't like the heat they can get out of the kitchen. Dick, love or hate him is playing a game like everyone else for 500k, so crossing the line has absolutely nothing to do it if rules aren't broken. All you are left with is disliking someone for their bad language which is again. personal opinion. Personally, the age old saying, "sticks and stones" applies here.

Well, I guess we just see it differently

It's not that he uses bad language, and your point about what they say behind people's backs is well-taken.

I guess I kind of view it as, their talking behind his back is mean-spirited gossip, he takes that to the level of actual verbal attacks.

Whatever the case, it's pretty ugly in that house right now. I'm glad I'm not in there.

I know! And I always find it funny how they protest that they're been edited to look BAD! I'm thinking, "Are you kidding me? They're making you look good!"

I realized also why they aren't getting rid of Dick. They can edit out the worst of his rampages, yet he provides plenty of material to create a great "character" for the TV viewers. They keep him because he's a gold mine of "great material" even if the unedited version of his behavior would likely cause a lot of controversy.

Yes, and if the producers are telling them who to vote for in the DR then that makes the show a sham anyway

I truly hope it is Dick that leaves this week...then he can go back to pretending to be Tommy Lee in real life

They are definitely being persuaded by the producers in the DR to vote a certain way, Alison Grodner being one of them as pointed out by Dani and Amber. Eric would have been out last week if it wasn't for this.

After tonight's show should start to get very interesting 'cause Erica is going to find out who he has to nominate - feeders know who so I won't give it away.
