18yr olds cant gamble!
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:13:37 AM »
Just a thought here, why did the HG's not catch on to NataLIE's lie about her age?

If you know anything about gambling, you will know you have to be 21 to do so no matter
what state you live in.

I'm curious as to what Nats response would be if someone asked her how she got to play
"professional poker" if she was not of age?

That should have been everyone's first clue that she is a liar.

At age 18 for me I was very mature, and many of my friends at that age were mature too.
She acted more like her shoe size than an 18yr old.

My 15 yr old acts more mature than she does.

MY guess is the HG's didn't think hard enough to catch her in lie after lie (have to give her that as much as I despise her)

We have also been saying for weeks that the fact she talked about casinos should have been a tip-off, as you have to be 21 there as well.

In some states (New York, Rhode Island), the minimum age to gamble is 18. In Connecticut, the minimum age to play Bingo at Foxwoods and buy scratch tickets and Lotto (and let's include playing pull tabs) is 18. To actually gamble in the casino, it's 21. Depends on what state you live in.

Some of Indian Gaming Casinos in our area(Calif) allow 18 year olds.  They are the
ones that don't sell alcohol.  Nat was drinking and I know the legal age for
drinking in Calif is 21.

Thanks for letting me know about the state rules

and forgive me, I didnt know this has been talked about

as for the drinking, when I went into the Navy (I was 18) drinking was legal ON THE BASE
but I highly doubt Nat is a service member!

She wouldnt last long in boot camp

They boot you if you try to cheat lie and steal!!

I don't gamble, can't stand losing.  :lol:  I wouldn't know what the rules are for Indian casinos or other states so I'd probably be inclined to believe Natalie when she said she played there. I can understand her idea of saying she was 18 and the only one who has ever really questioned her was Kevin. It was a ploy and ploys have been used many times in the BB house. That they believed her after she screwed up and had to cover goes to the gullibility of the HG's who didn't catch it, don't ya think?  ???

Doesn't the BB rules state you have to be 21 to play?

If this is true, wouldn't it say something like
"I certify I am at least 21 yrs old"

There was a contestant before the two-floor house design who was under 21. I think Daniele from BB8 turned 21 while in the house as well.

Someone did question her about being able to play in a poker tournament, I think it was Russ or Jeff, and she stated she used a fake ID.

I think the houseguest's minds are on sensory overload trying to figure out each other's next move and while they may suspect she might not be telling the truth, it is not a game changer to them.

I personally dont see why she thinks her age is a big deal or has anything to do with the game,  i mean really would it have mattered if she told them her real age?  she still would have hooked up with jesse and things would have played out just like they have.  Not being a liar I just dont understand why people feel they need to lie about such stupid things,   And dont think it wont come out durning the questioning (if heaven forbid she makes f2) and I think the people in the jury house are probally asking themself if she lied about her age what else was she lieing about and i hope they chose the other person to vote for,  i would rather see either one of the other 2 win rather then her,  i just cant stand the girl. :groan:

I think the guys made a really good point on the podcast about her grabbing the drinks after Kevin's POV win. You do listen to the podcast....don't you?
