Getting Up to Date with Roddy Mancuso from ‘Big Brother 3’, by Paris Cosby: What has Roddy Mancuso been up to since Big Brother 3? Well, dancing to Depeche Mode, for one thing. As the new BB gets ready to begin, Paris brings us up to date on one of the most talked-about players from last season.
Big Brother 3: Danielle Was Robbed, by Nina Perez-Bauschka: The ending of Big Brother 3 bothered Nina so much that she almost didn't write this article - almost. Instead, she did indeed write it, and goes through the reasons she thinks each player cast their vote the way they did. Let's just say that "intelligence" is not generally a reason that comes into play here.
Big Brother 3: Danielle Lost Because She Wasn’t Ruthless Enough, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: Many people have been saying that Danielle was too nasty, too ruthless. But that's not what this associate professor of political science says. Instead, he looks to some lessons from political theory to find out why Danielle lost - and what he says may well surprise you.
The Shining Stars of Big Brother 3, by Paris Cosby: While Lisa won Big Brother 3 and Danielle came in second, were these really the stars of the show - the ones who will be most remembered looking back a year or more from now? Paris says no, there are three others who outshone everybody else. Here's a hint: Look to the right.
Big Brother 3: Why Lisa Won, by David Bloomberg: Throughout the course of Big Brother 3, we’ve looked at why 11 people lost (including one who lost twice!). Now it’s finally time to examine why Lisa is $500,000 richer.
Big Brother 3: In Response to Sting7’s “Did the Best Player Win?” Article, by Charlie Reneke: There are ongoing debates about whether Danielle was the best player and Lisa really deserved to win or if the voters were just a bunch of whiners. Charlie falls squarely on the side of those who say Danielle was not the best, and provides this rebuttal to Sting7’s earlier article on the subject.
Big Brother 3: Why Danielle Lost, by David Bloomberg: Danielle played a good game with a good strategy and made it to the final two. But then the voters overwhelmingly went against her and gave the grand prize to Lisa. What did Danielle do wrong? What did the voters do wrong? Why did Danielle lose?
Hypocrisy Reigns in the Big Brother 3 Finale, by O’Sean Aieghlans: It seems that the Big Brother 3 houseguests are actually worse on the outside than they ever were on the inside. The finale showed that they were hypocrites and blamed Danielle for their own actions. But in some cases, it was even worse than that…
Big Brother 3: Did the Best Player Win?, by Sting7: Lisa took home $500,000 by a landslide, but does that mean she was the best player? Did people vote for her for the right reasons, or for personal ones that should have been ignored as part of the game? This house was full of hypocrites.
RNO Roundtable: Was the Big Brother 3 Veto a Worthwhile Idea?, by RealityNewsOnline Staff: One of the major changes in Big Brother 3 was the Veto. This power was threatened many times, but used only once. So was it worthwhile? The RealityNewsOnline staff, each with his or her own opinion, address this question.
Big Brother 3, The Finale: Good vs. Evil, by David Bloomberg: And so it ends. Danielle admits she's been evil and Lisa has been good. The evicted houseguests have a choice - they can either vote based on emotion or on gameplay. Given the way they've voted and acted during the entire summer, which do you think they'll use? Some surprises await as we crown the Big Brother 3 champion.
Big Brother 3: It Ain’t Over Yet, by Nina Perez-Bauschka: Many people are already getting ready to hand Lisa the $500,000 prize for Big Brother 3 -- but are the houseguests? Nina has done a little math and she isn't so sure. In fact, the way she calculates it, Danielle may well win it.
Big Brother 3: Lisa’s Victory Almost Assured, by Susan Schechter: It seems that Lisa has just made herself a half million dollars richer. It's all over but the vote counting at this point. Still, you never do really know what will happen on live TV…
Big Brother 3, September 21: The Final Two, by C. Brian Devinney: Last we saw of the Big Brother 3 houseguests, they were sitting in the middle of a pool holding on for dear life as a monsoon of rain swirled around them. Danielle especially did not look too happy about the entire thing. Tonight, we will see the conclusion of that challenge, hear the results of the challenge held last night, and see the final head of household competition done live. Finally, one more person will leave the house and be just out of the money. Will it be Lisa, Danielle, or Jason? You just gotta wait and read.
Big Brother 3: Why Jason Lost, by David Bloomberg: Jason seemed to be in a great position to walk away with half a million dollars. But that position quickly crumbled and he found himself instead walking out to greet Julie Chen just four days too soon. What happened? Why did Jason lose?
And So Big Brother 3’s Amy Gets Pissed On… Again, by Nina Perez-Bauschka: It wasn't until Amy walked out the door yet again that Nina realized she really wanted her to win. Why? Did she really deserve it and could she have pulled it off? Read on…
Big Brother 3: Why Amy Lost… Again, by David Bloomberg: This is perhaps the strangest column I’ve had to write on why a person lost Big Brother 3. No, it’s not because I already wrote about Amy losing once already – it’s because we really aren’t all that sure why Jason voted her out. Still, let’s take a shot at it.
Big Brother 3, September 19: It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, by C. Brian Devinney: Jason has to vote out Amy or Lisa. Will he go with strategy or stick with earlier promises? We also hear from four of the previously-evicted houseguests on how their lives are going now. And the final HoH competition begins in a rather wet manner.
Big Brother 3, September 18: Setting Sail, by David Bloomberg: Two houseguests leave for an ocean cruise (don’t worry – they get to come back), another chats online. Meanwhile, Jason and Danielle try to figure out just who should get the boot, as both Lisa and Amy use their charms on Jason.
The Key to Playing: Secret Alliances, by David Bloomberg: I've said it before, and I'll probably say it again. Keeping your alliance secret is the key to winning in reality TV. Danielle and Jason have been a prime example of this in Big Brother 3, and there are numerous examples - both of the right and wrong way to do it - from previous Survivor series.
Big Brother 3’s Amy: Most Liked or Most Hated, by Phil Kural: Amy has been labeled as self-centered, needing attention, possibly alcoholic, and worse. But Phil disagrees with all of the scorn heaped upon Amy - she has been through a lot in the house and he thinks she deserves to win it all .
Big Brother 3: Missing Roddy, by Susan Schechter: With Roddy gone from the house, the live feeds are missing his long talks, his contributions to great debates of our time - in short, his brain is missing from the show.
Big Brother 3: The Inevitable Ending… Or Is It?, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: The ending of Big Brother 3 seems all too obvious: No matter how you slice it, Jason wins. Or does he? Maybe - just maybe - somebody will do something unexpected…
Big Brother 3’s Danielle: Can She & Should She Win?, by Nina Perez-Bauschka: There are two issues when it comes to Danielle - can she win, and should she win. Nina makes the argument that she both can and should - although she definitely made some mistakes along the way.
The Viewer’s Voice: The Irony of Danielle, by Joshua Ryan: Have you ever been watching a reality TV show when things went exactly the opposite of the way you wanted them to go? Of course you have - we all have. Today Joshua Ryan begins a new column that takes a look at moments in reality TV when you just wish things had gone a lot differently. We start with the ironic way Danielle has gone from a fan favorite to somebody many wish would get the boot.
Advice to Future Big Brother Houseguests, by Rob Daugherty: Now that CBS has publicly requested that people apply for Big Brother 4, I think it is important for those who apply to be very aware of what is necessary for you to NOT be totally trashed by Big Brother's REAL audience - those who watch the Live Feeds, read the Live Feed recaps, and who spend many hours in discussion rooms.
Inside the House with Kent: Honesty Is Not the Best Policy, by Kent Blackwelder: When Kent was evicted from Big Brother 2, he was proud that he had played with fairness, honesty, and integrity. But now he finally has seen the light and realizes that this is simply not the way to play the game of Big Brother. Honesty cost Roddy the game, and dishonesty will take Danielle into the finals.
Big Brother 3: Why Marcellas Lost, by David Bloomberg: It seems rather obvious why Marcellas lost. He failed to use the power of the Golden Veto to take himself off the chopping block. But is it really that simple? Well, yes and no…
Big Brother 3: The Two Marcellases, by Susan Schechter: It may be that Marcellas was evicted, as Jason said, solely because of game reasons. But there was a Marcellas that people without live feeds didn't get to see - a Marcellas who was not all fun and games. Did this second Marcellas, the nasty Marcellas, contribute to his own downfall?
Big Brother 3, September 14: Expect the Expected , by David Bloomberg: Everybody knows what to expect from Danielle's nominations, and for a change, that's exactly what we get. It's getting down to the end here, though. Who will make it into the final three - and final two? Will Lisa's vote against Amy instead of Marcellas come back to haunt her? And why do the houseguests look like Spongebob Squarepants?
Big Brother 3: Can Amy Still Win It?, by Rose Ann Fiorita: Amy has somehow managed to last this long - can she go all the way and pull out a huge come-from-behind win? Well, maybe she can, indeed…
Big Brother 3: In Defense of Stupid Houseguests, by O’Sean Aieghlans: Why would anybody defend the stupid houseguests? Well, maybe we need to look at why people in these situations do such stupid things. That's exactly what O'Sean does here - read on for more…
The Reality TV Hall of Shame: Marcellas Reynolds of Big Brother 3, by C. Brian Devinney: It takes a lot to be enshrined in the Reality TV Hall of Shame. It takes even more to be enshrined within mere hours of leaving the show you were on! But Marcellas has managed to do just that with his incredibly stupid move, which only compounded his previous behavior.
Big Brother 3, September 12, Part 2: Golden Veto Turns to Lead, by David Bloomberg: In the second hour of this edition of Big Brother 3, we had the live portion of the show. First, there was the Veto meeting. Then the vote. Then the HoH competition. Phew! Surprises abound!
Big Brother 3, September 12, Part 1: Marcellas the Hypocrite, by David Bloomberg: Marcellas is apparently living in a different world than the rest of us. He says Roddy deserved to go for being dishonorable. He gets mad about the nominations this week and says they were disloyal. Yet he seems to have forgotten his own double- and triple-crosses. Let's see what else he has to say - along with the others - as we look at the first part of the two-hour Thursday night special episode.
Liar, Liar – But Do They Know It?, by David Bloomberg: Many reality TV participants leave their respective shows saying they never lied. But we at home gasp, because we've seen it happen. Roddy from Big Brother 3 is only the latest in a long string of those who have done this. But now science has come to the rescue in the form of a study showing that many people don't even realize it when they lie!
RNO Roundtable: Can Danielle Win?, by RealityNewsOnline Staff: There has been some debate on whether or not Danielle can actually pull off a win on Big Brother 3.

Big Brother 3: Where Does Lisa Stand?, by Phil Kural: In all of the plotting and planning, Lisa seems to be the biggest mystery. We know where Danielle, Jason, Marcellas, and Amy stand. But what about Lisa, the last remaining member of the original Group of Six?
Does “Being Yourself” Work on Reality TV?, by Joshua Ryan: A variety of players have tried to "be themselves" on reality TV shows, but have often found that it just doesn't work. The more successful players tend to be those who can see what they are doing wrong and modify their plans accordingly. Let's take a look back at some successful - and not so successful - players to see how they have handled it.

Big Brother 3: Why Roddy Lost, by David Bloomberg: He’d been vulnerable twice before, and each time managed to wriggle out of it. At the beginning of Thursday’s show, it looked like he might manage again. But not this time. Roddy is finally gone, but this leaves us with the question: Why did Roddy lose?
Big Brother 3, September 5: The Devil Went Down to… Nashville?, by C. Brian Devinney: It was the four-time nominees (and one-time evictee) against the three-time nominee. And it was finally time for Roddy’s luck to run out… wasn’t it? No way he could talk his way out of it this time, right?
Big Brother 3, September 4: The Devil Gets His Due, by David Bloomberg: Roddy has one chance left – if Amy wins power of veto, he can convince her to uphold her earlier promise to take him off the block. But will she succumb to his evil powers of persuasion? Or will the Devil finally get his due?
Big Brother 3: Eyes Open, Mouth Shut, by Phil Kural: Of the variety of strategies that have been attempted on Big Brother, Danielle's "eyes open, mouth shut" seems to have the best success to date. Which of the houseguests understand what it means and can actually use it to their advantage?
Big Brother 3: , August 31: Bitches, Divas, and Queens, by C. Brian Devinney: Amy avoided eviction last week and assumes that with her friend Marcellas as HoH, she is safe again this week. Well, you know what they say about assuming… A pie fight leads to a lost ring, which leads to a shower and… a lost ring. All of this leads to nominations and a whole lot of embarrassment.
Big Brother 3: Why Gerry Lost, by David Bloomberg: Gerry went from being disliked and ignored to being sought-after and in a position of relative power right to being voted out of the game unanimously. What happened? How did all these changes occur? Was his eviction strategic or based on personality? Why did Gerry lose?
Big Brother 3: Diagnosing Marcellas, by Peggy Keller: Marcellas began to show signs of strange behavior from the outset - turning on Gerry, the man who had allowed him to stay on the show. But his vitriol only got worse. Now he has turned on his one true friend and ally, Amy, and lashed out at her in the public nomination ceremony. Is Marcellas cracking up, or has he just become the very type of person he claims to dislike?

And once again, the houseguests have voted with something other than their brains. Will they ever learn? But there is a new HoH crowned, and it brings new interesting possibilities for next week. Read on…
Big Brother 3, August 28: Attack of the Gnomes, by C. Brian Devinney: First the gnomes made an appearance in The Mole 2. Now they are invading Big Brother 3. Yes, it’s the attack of the gnomes! Meanwhile, our players try to figure out the best strategy as the Veto is up for grabs and Roddy controls the minds of every other player.
Big Brother 3: A Good Time to Veto?, by David Bloomberg: If there was ever a good time to veto a nomination, now is that time. Jason put up Gerry and Amy instead of Roddy, so a veto could put Roddy on the block. But who got the Veto, and did s/he use it?
Colorful Characters on Reality TV, by Joshua Ryan: As much as we rail against certain players on reality TV show (Chiara comes to mind as the most recent one), history shows that we need colorful characters on these shows, or else they quickly become boring.
Big Brother 3, August 24: Jason’s Big Decision, by David Bloomberg: Jason has to decide who he should nominate. Will he listen to Danielle, Lisa, and Marcellas? Will he got with strategy? Or will he listen to Roddy, who plays the "you're my best friend" card?
Big Brother 3: Vote for Sale, Call 555-GERRY, by David Bloomberg: Gerry has been playing an interesting strategy. He said early on that he would have no permanent allies and no permanent enemies - and he meant it. But can selling his vote every week take him where he needs to go? Let's take a look.
Big Brother 3: Why Chiara Lost, by David Bloomberg: For the second week in a row, Roddy should have gone out if the players had voted strategically. But instead, it was Chiara. What caused her downfall? Was it the lying, the backstabbing, the general nastiness, or all of these things and more? Why did Chiara lose?
Big Brother 3, August 22: S-S-S-See Ya, by David Bloomberg: It's time to split up another couple. Well, actually, the couple split themselves up beforehand, but one of them still has to go home. Another duel between strategy (getting rid of Roddy) and emotion (getting rid of Chiara) has ensued. Which comes out on top? Heck, do the houseguests themselves even know who they are voting for?!
Big Brother 3, August 21: Cackling, Crooning, Crying, and Crowing, by C. Brian Devinney: It was a two-hour Big Brother 3 last night, and we have all the details for you right here. If you were watching American Idol and missed anything, now is your chance to catch up. There was a concert, nominations, a food/luxury competition, a veto competition, a veto meeting, and lots and lots of backstabbing and whining. Oh, and Chiara gets 28 or so new nicknames.
Live Feed Recap of the Big Brother Sheryl Crow Concert, by Rob Daugherty: We saw it on TV, but what was it like to watch the Sheryl Crow concert ahead of time, from the live feeds? Ah, if only we really knew. Rob thought he'd get to see it, but… well, maybe you'd better just read on.
Twisting the Games Away, by Joshua Ryan: "The Twist" has become a reality TV staple. Have to keep 'em on their toes, right? Well, maybe not. With the most recent BB3 twists and the Survivor twists, it isn't terribly clear that these are actually good for the players - or the viewers.
Inside the House with Kent: The Boston Pee Party, by Kent Blackwelder: Kent is sick and tired of the gutter-level of reality TV, and he's not going to take it anymore! And from the comments he has received, it looks like readers agree. So it's time to do something - time to take action - time to take a pee!
Confessions of a Reality Show Junkie, by Beth Blakely: When Big Brother 3 becomes more important than household chores, putting the baby to bed, dinner, and work, it may be time to consider if you have a problem. But only after watching the next episode and catching up on the latest live feeds!
Big Brother 3, August 16: The Rerun Show, by David Bloomberg: I thought "The Rerun Show" was on NBC - but apparently not. Tonight, it was on Big Brother 3 instead. OK, well, it wasn't all rerun. After all, we did find out who won the Head of Household competition, and we also got a few interesting new clips that may help explain some recent actions. And we get to see Amy back in the house again. Read on to find out more.
Big Brother 3: Why Josh Lost, by David Bloomberg: Why did Josh end up on the wrong end of a unanimous eviction vote? I'm tempted to say it was an overdose of stupid pills by the voters, but let's take a more in-depth look.
Big Brother 3, August 15: Strategy or Stupidity?, by David Bloomberg: Well, it's the big night - really the doubly-big night. We find out if strategy or stupidity rules the day for the vote out, and we find out who comes back in, not to mention how that decision is made.
Big Brother 3, August 14: Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia, by C. Brian Devinney: The battle is on! Chiara thinks she is fooling everyone, but in reality she is fooling nobody. Does this mean the house will turn on her and Roddy? How does the veto play in all of this? It's an action-packed episode as Josh lashes out and scores major points.
Big Brother 3: Which Evictee Should Return?, by David Bloomberg & RNO Readers: Although we still don't know how one of the four Big Brother 3 evictees will be chosen to come back into the house, we asked our readers to give their preference - and they did. If it went to a public vote and this is any indication, we would have a clear winner. Read on for details.
You Idiots – The Revival! – The Story of Big Brother 3 Thus Far, by Charlie Reneke: Chiara won HoH and, in a moment of strategic brilliance that would make General Custer green with envy, she nominated the only real ally she has in the house. But there's plenty of other idiocy in the house as well. Read on to see who Charlie says is playing the worst game in the house.
The Big Brother 3 Live Feeds: A Different Side of the Houseguests, by Susan Schechter: We see what Big Brother 3 editors want us to see. But the live feeds give us a bit more insight, even if they can be rather dull at times.
Big Brother 3, August 10: House Full of Hypocrites, by David Bloomberg: Chiara was mad at Lisa for saying mean things about her when it was really Chiara talking behind Lisa's back. Josh is mad at being strongarmed even though he has used the same tactics previously. Yes, it's a house full of hypocrites - and they aren't even terribly smart ones, at that.
Big Brother 3: Why Eric Lost, by David Bloomberg: Eric was in a strong alliance (several, actually), had a tight bond with Lisa, and was seen as a leader. Then he was voted out. What happened? Did these factors, which he saw as positives, turn into negatives?
Big Brother 3: The Twist, by David Bloomberg: We had an inkling it was coming – the newest Big Brother 3 twist will bring back one of the four previously-evicted houseguests. Is it fair? How will it be decided? Who will it be? Let’s take a look at what we know… and what we don’t.
Inside the House with Kent: The Incoherent Ramblings of a Busy Man, by Kent Blackwelder: Kent hasn’t written much lately because he’s been rather busy. But now that he’s back, he will tell you all about his thoughts on the twist, who is next, and why Big Brother 3 looks very, very familiar to him…
Big Brother 3, August 8: And Florida’s 25 Electoral Votes Go To…, by David Bloomberg: Eric probably wants a recount – and he might just get it. Some surprising votes bring out the first male eviction for Big Brother 3, but we also learn about the new twist that means somebody might just be coming back!
Big Brother 3, August 7: What a Girl Wants, What a Girl Needs, by C. Brian Devinney: Who will stay together? Who will be torn apart? No, this isn’t Temptation Island, but another edition of Big Brother 3. Gerry has nominated the couple of Eric and Lisa. Can they persuade the veto winner to spare one of them? Can they persuade Gerry to put up Josh instead? Can they persuade themselves that it’s all a big plot against them and everybody else is a bunch of big meanies? Only one of these questions has “yes” for an answer. Find out which one.
Big Brother 3: Romance and the Game, by Susan Schechter: Susan is an incurable romantic, and Big Brother 3 is giving her a lot to watch in that department. Not one, but two apparently serious couples have formed. Now that one may be breaking up, though, you have to remember that it's still a game.
Big Brother 3, August 3: Check, by David Bloomberg: In the game of chess that is Big Brother, King Gerry decides to go after the queen and a knight. Will he split up a couple in order to pare down their power? Or will the sleep-talking knight scare off the queen first? And can Marcellas stomach enough chicken livers to avoid a week of PB&J? All this and more, read on.
Big Brother 3: Why Amy Lost, by David Bloomberg: Was it an alliance strategy, a personality issue, or her drinking that caused Amy to take the long walk to greet Julie Chen? Or was it or a combination of all three? Why did Amy lose?
Big Brother 3: A Game of Chaos Theory, by Jeffrey Clinard: In many reality TV shows, there is an obvious (and sometimes not-so-obvious) strategy. However, has Big Brother 3 added so many different twists and turns that it has resulted in chaos? One small move can send shudders throughout the house and completely change the plans of everybody involved. How can you make predictions or strategy in that situation?
Big Brother 3, August 1: The Decoy Actually Stays, by David Bloomberg: There is little in the way of surprises in this episode of Big Brother 3. Amy knows she's going. Everybody else knows she's going. The only real question is whether or not she can get even a single vote to go her way. But after she's gone, the issue becomes one of who gets HoH next. And who will s/he nominate?
Big Brother 3's Amy: A Serious Look at Her Behavior, by Anonymous: Amy's behavior - both shown on TV and only seen on the live feeds - has raised serious questions about her. Here, a recovering alcoholic takes a look back at her own life and sees all too many parallels with the way Amy has been acting.
Big Brother 3, July 31: Getting Dunked, by C. Brian Devinney: How are Amy and Marcellas taking their nomination? Short answer: Not well. Maybe the veto will help? Who wins it? Do they use it? And who will likely be voted off Thursday? Read on to find out.
Big Brother 3: Rats in a Cage, by Charlie Reneke: Josh may be the most-hated reality TV contestant ever, but what do people see in Chiara?

Just a warning: This article contains spoilers relating to who wins the Veto power this week.
Big Brother 3, July 27: The Reign of Roddy, by David Bloomberg: As we begin Roddy's Reign, the question keeps coming up: Who will he nominate, and why? Will he use his head and gut the competition, or will he use another part of his body and follow along with whatever Chi-whore-a (as Amy calls her) tells him to do? Or can he find a way to somehow do both?
Big Brother 3: Why Tonya Lost, by David Bloomberg: Tonya was just supposed to be a pawn - a popular player to put up against Josh so he would easily be voted out. Or at least that's what she was led to believe. What changed so that history once again repeated itself and the pawn left rather than the target? Why did Tonya lose?
CBS Shows Results of Human Cloning on Big Brother 3, by David Bloomberg: While scientists, ethicists, and politicians argue about human cloning, CBS has done something about it! Through a complex scientific procedure, RealityNewsOnline can now confirm that the Big Brother 3 cast is largely made up of people who are clones of the Big Brother 2 cast. Read on for details!
Big Brother 3, July 25: History Repeats Itself Yet Again, by David Bloomberg: I’ve said it before, I’ll probably say it again: Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it (okay, so I wasn’t the first person to say it). The Big Brother 3 players simply do not understand history. We’ll see if maybe the next Head of Household does a better job…
Big Brother 3, July 24: Pocket Veto, by C. Brian Devinney: We've got all of the seven deadly sins on display for the summer yet again with jealousy taking center stage tonight. But we also have plenty of pride and various other sinful behavior. The real questions that are answered are who will get the veto and whether they will use it to save Josh or Tonya.
Big Brother 3’s Lori – Gone All Too Soon, by Susan Schechter: Even from the beginning, it looked unlikely that somebody like Lori could last the full three months in the Big Brother 3 house. But the very first person to go? She left all too soon, but considering the tone in the house, perhaps it was for the best.
You Idiots! – The Story of Big Brother 3 Thus Far, by Charlie Reneke: Just two weeks into Big Brother 3 and it's already obvious that almost everybody in the house is completely clueless as to how to play this game!
Big Brother 3, July 20: The Bizarre World of Josh, by David Bloomberg: Lori is gone and the game is definitely on. Marcellas wants to make up his own mind on who to nominate, but Danielle keeps putting the pressure on. Does he cave in to her ideas about Gerry, or does he make the smart move and put up the cheating little bugger, Josh? Let’s hope this is the beginning of the end for the head liar of the house.
Big Brother 3: Why Lori Lost, by David Bloomberg: Lori was just supposed to be nominated because they needed to have two people. She was never supposed to actually take the fall -- that was going to be Marcellas. So what happened? Why did Lori lose?
Big Brother 3, July 18: Reversal of Fortunes, by David Bloomberg: It's time for the first eviction and second Head of Household as fortune smiles upon some but frowns at others. Did these houseguests even watch the previous Big Brother? If so, they certainly didn't learn anything!
Big Brother 3, July 17: Feel the Power!, by David Bloomberg: Gerry has the Veto Power, but will he use it? Will he confront what he sees as racism and homophobia, even at his own expense? More importantly, will he wash his hands before doing so?
Big Brother 3: Josh’s ‘Strategy’, by Susan Schechter: Josh seems to be working on a strategy that is based on paranoia and revenge upon anybody who would dare oppose him. Will it work, or backfire horribly?
Big Brother 3: New and Improved?, by Susan Schechter: How does the new Big Brother house stack up after its first week? It's already looking like sex will be an issue -- as it has been in every other BB house around the world. Is this good or bad?
Big Brother 3, July 13: The Twist!, by David Bloomberg: We heard that there would be a twist, but didn't know exactly what it would be 'til tonight. How will it affect the nominations? Will the Group of Six even hold together long enough for the first vote, or is Gerry going freelance? And how about an egg-fight? All of this, plus plenty of plotting, of course.
Inside the House with Kent: Spooning and Forking in the BB3 House, by Kent Blackwelder: The houseguests have only been in a few days, but already SEX is a hot topic. There is spooning, snuggling, massaging, and who knows what else. The Live Feed cameras are burning up. Also, learn what the new twist is regarding nominations.
Big Brother 3, July 11: First Nominations, by David Bloomberg: The Group of Six has a plan. Will it work? Or will it fail this year like Chill Town's did last year? Can they trust each other? And can Josh get better at math? Let's take a look as we get the first nominations of BB3.
Inside the House with Kent: Big Brother 3 -- Candle in the Wind, by Kent Blackwelder: Has Marcellas' candle burned out long before his legend ever will? It's sure looking that way. And if anybody ought to know, it's somebody who has been there before -- BB2's Kent Blackwelder.
