    Nominations have no point anymore! I'm glad that viewers get to nominate this week because from what I've seen tonight, Big Brother may as well be the one to nominate housemates. This is what I'm talking about:

    • 'I nominate Daniela, because she pouts her lips in the mirror'
    • 'I nominate Zach, because he reminds me of a Ken doll and I like GI Joe'
    • 'I nominate (can't remember), because he/she reminds me of chocolate'

    What used to be a vital, sensible part of the game is now just a crock! It's just rubbish. It's not even funny anymore as it's just overwhelmed with immaturity. Sure, I'll probably get replies back telling me to "lighten up" and "that it's just a show" and probably "chill out" but if they aren't gonna take it seriously, what is the point of even having the nominations part of the show!!! Another likely argument I'll get in retaliation for bringing this up is "they are just trying to find reason to get their nominations approved as Big Brother is too strict about it". Well, they shouldn't be allowed to nominate if they are going to be too lazy to think of a legitimate and serious reason to nominate during the week. Sorry, but that's my rant for today.

    Big Brother called the HMs into the diary room earlier in the day and basically told them "because you don't take nominations seriously, well I'm not going to take you seriously either"

    The HMs then took this as free reign to go nuts and nominate for whatever they feel like.

    And yes, they got away with it.

    I think maybe on some level they sense that something is going on, because this is so unusual for them. I don't think they'll be very surprised on Sunday when they find out their nominations didn't count for anything

    I thought it was pretty funny, I liked how Billy was trying not to crack up. Zoran put in a poor performance. I hope they do this again, except it actually counts.

    That wold explain it, I didn't see that. But even when that hasn't been said, they still don't take it seriously.

    Didn't Zach nominate Joel, because he has a coleslaw, so he can't pash him??? I missed it, but I heard someone talking bout it at school.
