Well, let me just say that I am THRILLED that Will is gone. I was pretty sick of his presence in the BB house, and any full grown man who still makes “pinky swears” deserves whatever treatment he receives. And I think he acted childishly by not hugging Adria or her sister (especially her sister; they are two separate people, despite how everyone in his alliance acts), and by showboating like a drama queen when Adria’s face came up on the monitor during the farewell tapes. Sign of the cross? Yeah, way to be the bigger man, William.
I believe Will lost because he let personal feelings get in the way of winning the game. This is proved (as far as I’m concerned) by his crying during his farewell tapes, and telling Julie that his friendships in the house were “real”. First of all, I truly doubt these are the kind of people Will hangs out with by choice, and not only the segment showcasing of his friends but also the way he mocks the fashion sense of his alliance behind their backs both back this up. But second, and most important, even if the friendships are real, you aren’t here to make FRIENDS; you’re here to win $500,000. This isn’t summer camp Will, it’s a three month game show, and you knew that when you signed up.
Adria is only viewed as a villain because she has Natalie in the house, and because she is playing strategically instead of the way her “friends” want her to play. Even before she put up Will, people were whispering about the twins and how they were a threat in the house. I can almost guarantee you that even if Adria had not put up Will, she and her sister would be on the block next week. She is playing the game intelligently IMHO, and now she sees the weaknesses in her former alliance that she could only guess at to this point.
It’s really easy to shout “Betrayal! How DARE you!” when these types of situations come up in the BB house, but look at this realistically. It is only a game. If Adria had put up Marvin and Cowboy, and the house continued to vote out people who were not in Will’s core alliance (Nakomis, Karen, and [he thought] Adria and Natalie) then eventually it’s going to get down to 5. At this point, somebody HAS to “betray” somebody. By this point, the twins would be sitting around with two HUGE bullseyes on their foreheads (as if they aren’t already, but I digress…).
Thus, getting rid of Will makes great sense. As far as what I’ve seen on the show (I don’t see the live feeds) Karen comes off as a nutjob, and without Will as her anchor she will either retreat into herself or will self destruct. That just leaves Nakomis, Marvin and Cowboy as people who are not even close to being on her side. Nakomis is dangerous, as she can actually think for herself (at least to a certain extent). Marvin is also dangerous, and now is not that huge a fan of bootylicious or bootyluscious ( :rolleyes: ). Then there is Cowboy, who probably still sleeps with Scott’s pillow, and no doubt goes into the bathroom, puts on Jase’s headband and weeps silently. Nobody is worried about Cowboy, nor should they be.
Now Nakomis (and by the way, don’t get me started how stupid that Azrael Abyss-esque name is) is HOH. No doubt, Nakomis will put up the twins this week. From a strategy standpoint, this is the right thing to do. However, thanks to the new veto competition, it will be very difficult to keep both of the twins on the block, since (theoretically) if they pick Diane and Drew, they have a 2/3 chance of winning. Should be interesting to see how it plays out. Of course, it would behoove D & D to drop A & N like hot potatoes, but that would be BETRAYING them, wouldn’t it?
And I don’t want to defend Adria and her sister too much. It really cheeses me off how much they bring up the Bible when it is convenient for them, yet swear and talk about others behind their backs when it suits them strategically. Of course, everyone in the house does the same thing (except for the Bible thing, natch), but it makes the twins look like HUGE hypocrites.
I still don’t think she is worse than Jase, though. I don’t recall Adria ever “calling people out” in the house, or running around pulling childish pranks and exhibiting infantile behavior. Everyone (except Cowboy) was glad when Jase left the house. Those who are saying that Adria is worse, in my opinion, either have a very short memory or problems with proportion.
And may I add, what a STUPID line is “If karma is a boomerang, I’ll be seeing you sooner than later.” Ooh, I’m sure Adria was shakin’! Suck it up, Will, and be a good sport. IT IS ONLY A GAME.
