So the big twist was revealed: America gets to vote on who should get a phone call from home. I don't even care right now. But I feel like I should take any opportunity to vote and express my opinion, so I'm voting for James. Not that I feel he's more deserving or anything, but I've got a feeling he's going to be around for a while. Rachel was sent packing, big surprise. I don't get Ivette's parting comment to Rachel. I could understand if Ivette had been talking about Janelle, but Rachel? I must have missed something. The horse-breeder even tried to keep her partner, Howie, calmed down when he was picking on Busto, um, April. OK, it didn't work, but she tried. And I know that Howie wanted revenge, but now that April's HOH, I'm pretty sure that the funny man will get his dream threesome next week when he's sequestered with Jenny and Rachel. Heck, he'll probably even be happy to go, though I'm not convinced I'll be happy watching the show without him. Even though it was an annoying and conceited comment on his part, he really is the star of the show. Gosh, that's sad. Angel Cohn
Being Bobby Brown
A satisfying season finale "Bobby Brown's Greatest Hits" and I enjoyed how it was edited together. Very clever how they used mostly titles from Bobby's and Whitney's hit songs to introduce each segment. My favorite segment was, of course, the "Hell to the No!" montage, and what made it even better is that it ended with my roommate Jason's favorite singing quote from the entire series. That would be Whitney singing "I'm not doing this with him todaaaaaaaaay!" I swear Jason has sung that quote every single day since it first aired and let me tell ya, I laugh every time.
What made me laugh the most tonight, though, was seeing the brilliant "Shut up, just shut up, shut up" scene of Whitney mouthing along with the Black Eyed Peas in the car. Priceless. I know they promised some "all-new, never-before-seen footage," but new scenes were few and far between. The glass display of Michael Jordan's shoes, the female fan grabbing Bobby in the crotch while getting a photo taken with him, Bobby attempting to imitate Lou Rawls (I did it better once at a karaoke bar) and Whitney's "What girl did you go out with that had hair on their a--?" scene? I can understand why those were cut in the first place. Classiest examples would be Bobby sitting on the toilet and the sound effects of it all being bleeped (bravo to Bravo for the bleeping) and Whitney farting out loud in a restaurant (which wasn't bleeped) and then blaming "someone over there." I thought to myself, "Whitney's music career has blown away. Now she's blowing us all away in a different fashion. Pretty!" I have such a way with words when I think to myself. Dave Anderson
