Some New Rules for the Blog....

These NEW rules will take effect NOW and last until the end of the season. I have been seeing a lot of negative comments, and have received many complaints.

1) Comments will be moderated after 10:00PM EST every night. I cannot stay here watching everyones every comment, therefore at 10:00PM I will need to moderate comments to ensure bad comments do not get posted.

2) Use the "Your own updates" section for anything POSITIVE. Like I said over there, I cannot sift through 1000's of comments and delete the bad ones. PS: If anyone would like to help me with this please email me or leave a comment

If you have any questions, or would like to help me keep this site POSITIVE, please leave a comment or email me! bigbrother8talk@hotmail.com

Do we know what the competition is for tonight yet?

BBVIII said...

not sure. My guess is it will be similar to last years. It seems many of this years competitions are spin offs of last years.

It will probably be late tonight, considering part 1 ended early this morning.

I didn't watch it too much previous years. Now my sister has me addicted! Thank you for your updates. They are much appreciated!

Thank you for all you've done. I had rather come to this site than any other on the internet. Thanks again for everything !!

This blog has been so well written and maintained, and I've referred to it all during the show's run. I can't say enough about the people (person?) writing the updates....good job, well done! I applaud your keeping things positive and just reporting the facts.

I'm glad that Zach won 1st part of final HOH. I have enjoyed this show in the past but this year the mean spirited actions have left me uneasy. I like the show but like others I want the rules to come back.

DizzyDeni said...

you are doing a great job and I have depended on your site so much this season. Thank you.

DizzyDeni said...

What happens to the loser of tonights competion? What happens to the winner? What I mean to say is, what is the procedure here? This is my first year that I have watched BB every time its been on, and love it and ED.

BBVIII said...

Part 2 was done high in the air. Janelle and Mike had to move around a big contraption lining up lasers from Season 1 winner to Season 6 Winner. Here is a video

BBVIII said...

The winner tonight goes on and faces zach(winner of part 1) in part 3 to determine the final hoh.

The loser tonight sits on the sidelines for final hoh

Anonymous said...

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

Does anyone know if Eric's vote in the jury will be an Americas' Choice vote, or his own?

Thanks!

This is to funny

zacharythomas said...

I just hope ED goes home. He is not only rude, crude and socially inept; he is cruel. "Playing the game" is no excuse. I think he should have been kicked off the show after he dumped the iced tea on Jen's head. I am not a fan of Jen, but there has to be a bottom line and he has hit an all-time low. Sometimes, he made me feel so uncomfortable, I turned Showtime After Dark off.

thank you congrats to the final 3

Thank you for all your efforts. However, I am very glad that you are monitoring after 10pm. Hopefully that will filter out the immature, abusive blogger(s).

I agree. The daily updates on the live feeds were very well written and kept me tunning in to keep reading. Job well done!!

I also agree that reading many of the comments has made my stomach turn on how rude/disgusting some people can be. It is a GAME after all and people shouldn't take this stuff so serioussly - it's entertainment folks!!! Chill out a little!!!

PS..GO D&D!!!!!

It wouldnt be so bad if they would scroll up before askin questions or using the same name as someone else or posting false stuff on there..That is very annoying

It's a shame that people put so much work into this for us and that a few have to ruin it for the rest of us.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK ON THIS WEBSITE.

Can't help but love dick! Does anyone else think he looks like Tommy Lee? Does anyone know if Daniele broke-up with her boyfriend back home? I think if Dick wins, he will give or share the money with her.

So is the final competition definately a trivia competition?

thanks for all your hard work, I just wish there werent so many sensitive freedom of speech opposing liberals on it. Every opinion even if you dont want to hear it is worthy of being expressed if something bugs you, ignore it, or get off the computer, we shouldnt sensor anything and thats why I will give Dick that, he can say what he wants its america and until people who are so overly senstive are able to get all freedom of speech taken away, we still have it.

Anonymous said...

Don't love Dick. Don't love to hate Dick. Sorry, BB did let him go too far. I do hope, if there's a BB9, this disfunction isn't allowed. D&D don't deserve to leave this show with "a good game" being said to them.

Anonymous said...

I don't think the problem is "freedom of speech" itself. The problem is abusing the freedom. People come to the big brother site to listen for updates and hear other's opinions and statements on the houseguests. The monitoring I believe is probably mostly for people who say rude stuff that has nothing to do with bb8.

True that Brother!

Anytime speech is sensored it is always a freedom of speech issue. Just because someone says something you dont like doesnt mean it should be sensored. Sorry

Weird that you would but a comment agreeing with yourself thats really funny 755 and 758 who are actually the same person. Sensor everything until only your opinion is heard sounds like fun :)

I agree with 800pm thats so true some people just cant handle others opinions its really sad.

Will Kirby is the best big brother player ever. He told the houseguest that he hated them all and they unanimously choose to keep him, it doesnt get better than that.

Thanks bbviii

May the "best person" win - as Wahmber would say......LOL

Come one that was funny right? right? tee hee

bhitt said...

It horrifies me that people like Daniele always win everything. The snottier, the more lies you tell... the more you're likely to win... at anything. How ass backwards! Atleast her father does'nt pretend to be nice.

There will always be something to kill are time with :)

I am wondering why the comp that includes winning a car wouldn't include all three of the guests. Seems pretty unfair that Zach wouldn't be able to compete for a car.

jacqueline said...

I enjoy this site and also I'm sorry for the very bad comment I mad the other day to so one who was rude to me. Very childish of me.

I read this Blog two many times a day...lol To find out what going going and how the day is going in BB house.

On the main screen for BB8 look at America's Player. It clearly states that Eric will cast the vote we submit.

jacqueline said...

Sorry having a bad english writing day.

So now what, the next part of the comp. is what. and do all 3 play or just dick and dani. if so he will let her win. he wants her to win.

I hop he win this part, I would prefer for him to win this game then zach.

go Dick!!!!

Anonymous said...

i was told that if the two hg dont win in a certain amount of time Zach wins the car

If there is a car it will be a timed comp..If D or D do not win within alotted time Zach will get car.

Thank You for the gerat site , Isure hope you do it for season 9 also.

Anonymous said...

this site is the best thank you very much i am sure that it takes lots of time and determination to do what you do! as far as ed and dani well i hope they win because they deserve it yes they are dishonest and rude but the others had the chance many times over to get the job done and honestly dani is the best competitor yet in all 8 seasons just my opinion if it counts for anything ( to me anyway, which is what matters)

Updater said...

Well that makes sense to moderate after 10PM. Unfortunately we couldn't have had the fun with the multi-person live-action update of the all nighter contest last night.

Rudeness aside, it sure was fun.

Updater said...

Also I should say thank you for a great and professionally run site!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this blog. It is much appreciated. I know it will be a burden to moderate the comments, but that is appreciated too. I don't think the problem is that people can't stomach other people's opinions about the game, but when people start making personal attacks (ethnicity, weight, etc.) that really are irrelevant to the discussion and are mean-spirited it just takes away from the blog. Thanks again.

jacqueline said...

the only person Eric will vote for is Zach. he hates Dick and Dani.

if we tell him to vote for Dick.he will hate it with a passion.

I still can't wait until every one find out he got paid to put them out. thats going to be enjoyable to watch

Anonymous said...

That sucks that a few people being rude on here mixed with a few people being overly sensitive and running to tell mommy, makes it so that the quick updates (like lastnight during the HOH comp) are now impossible after 10PM...really sucks.

Updater said...

Anyone know when tonight's game starts?

Anonymous said...

Eric hated Zach too; with a passion in fact.

B. said...

I agree that this is a great site! I also agree that something needs to be done about the people that are just making issues. Perhaps not allowing Anonymous? I'm sure it won't be solved for this years competition.

Anyways, I think that it would be in D & D's best interest for Daniele to win part 2, so that she is up against Zach.

I don't know that Dick would necessarily win against Zach in votes. He has been over the top much of the game.

I am interested in whether we control Eric's vote? I would think so.

Anonymous said...

Welllllllll I guess the second leg of this competition is already predetermined. Dick was just talking to Daniele about how she is going to beat Zach in the question and answer section of the HOH comp. Yup...they have it all worked out. I am not surprised since Daniele is definitely the stronger of the two. What a farse these two are.

I believe that America does vote through Eric.

The problem was that people were spewing racism and vulgarity. One thing is giving your opinion, the other is being completely out of line and being insulting to others.

Thanks bbviii for taking care of this problem!

Looks Dani and Dick are healing their relationship. I think they'll be just fine. This show really let them prove their loyalty and love for eachother.

Anonymous said...

do you know what the saddest part about all of this is for me anyhow?
not ONE person seems to want zach to win because he is such a great guy..because he has a winning personality...because zach made them laugh at his antics...or becuase zach touched their hearts and emotions in some way. most people just want zach to win because they hate dick and daniele.
that is a really sad state of affairs. i don't hate zach. i think zach has done a pretty good job and he seems to be pretty smart..if he wins i will be a little upset because overall i think daniele actually deserves to win. she has played her ass off and won so many comps. it's ridiculous. but i really want dick to win. i really really like dick. i think he is a diamond in the rough and even though he is rude and crude..i admire him in his unending quest to prove to daniele he loves her. dick is the one i have come to look forward to seeing 3 times a wk. and i will be sad when big brother is over. i hope cbs realizes what a gem they have found in dick and get him his own tv show...i would watch. unfortunately i sure can't say that about zach. he is about as interesting as watching paint dry!
my hat's off to you dick donato..you are a hell of a guy!

First.....to: BB8 VIII.....This has
been a great and fun site. You are
the best !

Second.....to: everyone out here.... Dick, Danielle or Zach are
NOT the evil ones....you know who
is....it is the producers and directors of BB......after watching
those 3 being totally tortured by
cold water and then the other game
where they slipped and fell...I feel that they honestly want some
one to get hurt. With the stuff they do....someone could die for
the almighty dollar. they edge
people like Dick on to get the
almighty TV ratings ! They dangle
a half million $$$$ in someone's
face and get them literally to go
nuts ! I fell bad for Danielle
last night, she couldn't even have
the privacy to take off her wet
clothes. What is she ....100 lbs. ?
I love the show....but like i said
the real "EVIL" ones are the ones
putting it on they way they do !!!

Thank you a million times for this well written blog! I am so glad to see an attempt to clean the site up.

If someone does not like a competitor, that's fine. It's okay to say they don't like someone but some of the language on here has been hideous! There are better ways to express an opionion other than using the f bomb or name calling.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!!

WOW.. Dick with his own TV show. Now that is a scary thought. That would be like givng Howard Stern his own TV show. Dick would have to go to Satellite Radio just like Howard.

Not sure if any of you still care or not, but five days later CBS finally is saying that the blue ball, from the POV competition that could have saved either Jameka or Eric, actually fell into Jamekas tube on it's own after reviewing the tapes.

this is not a freedom of speech issue freedom of speech does not inculde personal attacking people with UNTRUE comments that is called slander not freedom of speech people need to stop hiding behind that it does NOT by anymeans give people the right to say whatever whenevr they want that is not what is implied by freedom of speech

I am a dick fan and I did not agree with the comments that were posted last night I was trying to give updates but got tired of the comments that were posted. PPL critcize Dick for his behavior but I believe some of the comments last night on both sides were no better. So please make sure went you group people ie. dick fans or non dick fans you are including those of us who did not participate in that behavior with them.

Thanks for this site. I have read it 3 or 4 times a day to see what is going on. I really have enjoyed how you kept us updated. As for Dick he is a bully and if that was one of our daughters he was talking to (which I think he talks to women in the real world just like he is doing in the house)we would be irate about it. He has no respect for people in general

Thank you so much for your hard work on this site. As a married, 35 year old woman, from North Carolina (the Bible Belt)-I'd like to say I'm pulling hard for Dick and Danielle b/c I think they have played the best game. Is Dick really "Evil"-no. I'm a christian and have seen worse in the church than Dick's behavior. It's all been strategy with him, I think. And even if it isn't, this is America and he's entitled to his beliefs. Nothing against Zach, just don't think he played the better game.

Anonymous said...

I'm a newbee to the site ... love it now that I've found it. If America does get to vote via Eric I hope it's announced soon. Didn't seem fair on the double eviction night that only East Coasters and Central Time Zoners got to decide who Eric voted out.

I agree with how low the insults have gotten on her, but Ithink that most of the lowest and disgusting blows have come from so-called "D & D haters". I find it dispocable the names that these 2 people have been called on this site by some posters.

I tend to agree, the insults and names that some have called either D would probably not be said in public and I think some posters on this site should be ashamed.

I don't know why people keep saying that Zach is not playing the game. For the past few weeks, the Donatos, Eric and Jessica pretty much controlled the house. Under that circumstances, the only way for Zach to survive was to hide under the rader and let the hgs fight against each other. Zach finally found his place in the game and started winning competitions. Remember, he has nobody to count on in the house. If the jury take into account what happened these past two weeks instead of just focusing their time they spent with Zach, they should vote for Zach if he makes it to the final two.

Michelle C said...

Thanks for all your hard work I hope Dani can hold out and win big for the two of them because they have played the game together as a team but I do think is is a little stronger than dick. On youtube after the comp Dani went and got a blanet for both Zack a nd her dad and was telling Dick what a good job he did and not to feel bad. I think that is the real Dani.

Updater said...

Hey 8:55PM, I couldn't agree with you more about what Zach is lacking. But I'm a Zach fan now after watching how his preparation and singleminded focus allowed how to do what he did last night. That was the most methodical, dedicated performance I've seen this season. Dani's bat hang was good, but they negotiated a solution, and that was not an option here. Not to mention the abuse on top of it.

You might have had to watch 8 hours of that march he did, how he always started up marching just before the water started, being more observant than anyone, how he held his tongue, how he congratulated Dick IMMEDIATELY on his surrender, there was so much to his effort there that makes him a true contender. And you don't get that without a little soul to help you though, as obscured as it may be.

Zach was bound and determined to do what he had to, and I was truly impressed.

Binky said...

GO DICK!!! I'm pulling for the
Donatos ~ fantastic players both,
though Dick is my favorite by far.

I would for sure watch if he were to get his own TV show. He's GREAT! GO DICK!!

In the past, a HG who physically attacked another HG was dismissed. How come Dick was not even reprimanded when he poured tea on Jen.
