Death Threats.. Seriously?
What is fact, a lot of people really hate Shelly for turning on Jeff and Jordan. I see that everywhere I look. What was rumored is that some took it too far and made death threats against Shelly’s family, including her 8-year old daughter (who, btw, said her mother should stay aligned with J/J). There are also rumors people are calling her work, and doing a few other things that I won’t even repeat to not give others the idea.
Look.. time to step on my soap box. Big Brother is a game. Shelly is trying to win that game. She made a move she felt would better her chances of winning. That’s the extent of it. If you step back and look at it like that, it seems absolutely silly to take it to a personal level of threatening her family no matter how badly you disagree on her move.
Shelly betrayed Jeff and Jordan’s alliance, but reality is, if and when J/J got down to the final 5 with Rachel, Shelly and Adam, they would have had to do the same thing to those people to get into the final 2. They weren’t going to just forfeit the game at that point, and that’s because they know it is a game based on twists, alliances, betrayals, “backdoors”, etc. If you’re one of the fans who cannot accept that, it’s simply time to stop watching the show.
Reality shows have been like this since Richard Hatch was the “snake in the grass” who won the first ever Survivor, and these shows will continue to be that way. That’s why we watch. The reason these shows are so entertaining is because of the “heroes vs villains” aspect, so much that Survivor had an entire season based on that concept.
Just sit back, relax, watch the show and not take it so serious. Come to my facebook page and vent about whatever happens, but don’t go beyond that, please. I guarantee the people you support the most (Jeff and Jordan) are going to be nearly as upset as Shelly when they leave the house and hear about this. Just enjoy the rest of the season, and let’s hope this doesn’t ruin the chances for more seasons for the show we love to hate.
Ok, off my soap box now. I want to see comments supporting this below, regardless of how you feel about Shelly’s decision.
