It all comes down to how good you are at manupulating people ... peroid.
Booger and Dr. Delicious prooved this.
You would win tons of comps but it only helps a little. Cause as soon as tyou loose one HOH and or Veto you will be gone, unless you can manipulate people.
I think you make a good point. Being trapped in a house with 12 strangers and not being able to leave is very psychological and so is manipulation.
If you cut out all the comps, manipulating people would be the only way you could win.
I think if anyone comes in thinking they can play it clean that they're fooling themselves.
I've noticed several of the all-stars in the goodbye vids said what an ugly game BB is.
It is an ugly game and you have to get ugly if you want to win. In a way the HG are like rats in a maze and there's only one piece of cheese and you have to do whatever you have to do to get that piece of cheese.
I think when Danielle had to be in total isolation that was a more severe form of what the HG's go thorugh. For all intents and purposes they are all in isolation. Add to that they know they're being watched 24/7 and you're not going to act like yourself.
I remember a few years back to Erika's season, I think it was, one of the HG's had to be removed because he couldn't handle the pressure of that situation and they were afraid he was going to turn violent.
