How You Feel After Listening to Marissa For 3 Weeks


I’m going to say it. One of the biggest issues with Celebrity Big Brother so far has been Marissa. Well, that and a bunch of quitters.

I don’t even feel right pushing live feeds on people because whenever you turn on the feeds, there are 2 cameras on Marissa talking. Now, that would be okay if she was actually saying interesting stuff, but she’s not. It’s just general chatter all…day…long. I am beginning to understand why Metta wanted to leave. I’d probably go crazy in that house as well.

If you don’t have access to the feeds, picture this. Paul after about 4 coffees and running from room to room to actively find whatever cameras appear to be filming. You have now been given a taste of the Marissa experience this season.  You’re welcome!


Regarding what is actually going on in the house – nothing. Like most days, the houseguests are sitting around the kitchen trying to talk whenever Marissa stops to take a breath. I’m pretty sure the PoV will be played later on today, so if it is, I will post the results of that.

Another topic – while checking the news yesterday, I saw the topic “Julie Chen says Celebrity Big Brother could become an annual event“. While technically true, the keyword from that is “could”. Here is the actual quote:

I wouldn’t rule it out! Who knows? It’s definitely possible. With these ratings, it did what we hoped as opposed to running repeats of the current slate of shows. It all depends how well all the shows on the air are doing. But don’t forget, B.B. takes up a lot of real estate on the prime-time schedule. We are used to having at least three nights to air in a week. CBS is known for having a strong schedule of shows year round so it’s hard to say right now what will happen next winter.

Translation – Celebrity Big Brother was something we ran during the Olympics because it makes us more money than repeats. There is virtually no chance that Big Brother will be back next winter because the format of the show takes up way too much of the weekly schedule. While I’m certain that Big Brother could beat out shows like Man with a Plan, we would have to completely change the format and only show one episode per week because it cannot beat out other shows like Big Bang Theory or NCIS.

So, you’re telling me there’s a chance??

    ….. “because whenever you turn on the feeds, there are 2 cameras on Marissa talking.”

    Steve, you’re prophetic (or just stating the obvious); Turn on my feeds today and this is what I got.

    I just left 2 comments on the “Nominations Revealed” thread, in part about how Marissa is the sole reason that I’ve been watching less of this mini-season. Her obsession with getting attention is quite a deficit. Nobody else in the house can have a complete conversation with anyone else if she is in the vicinity. It has been amazing that other housemates haven’t told her to STFU and to stop being such a vacuous energy suck.

      I saw them; good stuff.

      One more thing. I was watching late last night when Marissa claimed that Brandi yelled at her. My conclusion was that Marissa is an insufferable busybody motormouth who was milking the situation to get attention and to look like she was on the Good side. Screw her and the gnarly broom she rides on 24/7. Marissa is the major reason that I’ve been watching less of Celebrity Big Brother.

    I hate all the quitting. Why did they come on? Especially Metta, I did not figure him for a QUITTER!! very dissapointing

    • Mel

      He had no idea what he’d signed up for. He also didn’t have the patience or the common sense to watch the season they provided for him while he was in sequester and he’d never seen the show. I get why some people want to come in fresh without knowing too much but I don’t understand why anyone would commit themselves to something for a month without even knowing what it is. That’s stupid.

  4. hogwild

    If I was stuck in that house with Marissa I would tunnel my way out of there if I had to. I find it amazing no one in the house has told her to shut the hell up

    Julie has mastered the art of sounding informative while giving no information. What a company gal. She couldn’t really say, “well, we couldn’t rerun the Paul dictatorship season, not a good look. But I don’t know what will come of the Celebrity Big Brother experiment. I’m really just an emcee. Ask Mr. Moonves, but your call to him won’t get put through, lol.” Julie Chen is good at her job. Love ya, Julie!

    I didn’t see it, but apparently Marissa did some kind of dance while playing pool.

    “Ya someone needs to tell Marissa to settle down sit down and be quiet.. You can hear more of what’s going on if you listen instead of trying to be center of attention constantly and quit trying to one up everyone’s stories!”

    “How you feel after listening to Marissa for 3 weeks”

    Like finding the highest bridge and taking a swan dive.

    Veto comp now I think. Chatter says it’s hide and go veto. I actually wouldn’t mind seeing that comp played without James in the house because he ruined it for two seasons. Unless Brandi wins, she goes home anyway no matter who goes otb with her. Ross wants to save her but he’s the only one.

    Yes, Marissa has completely ruined the feeds for me too. It’s bad enough that she talks constantly, she also feels the need to say everything 3 times in a row. If she was any kind of threat, she would have been gone a long time ago because she tells everything as soon as she hears it. (During the rare moments she hears something) Brandi also never yelled at her, just like Omarosa didn’t yell at her last week. She only liked that Alliance of four because of Ari and she can’t wait to cut Brandi loose. She hasn’t been able to hide her pleasure at Brandi leaving. I think we’re still stuck with her even with the double eviction. Ross, Omarosa and James are the ones who will be in trouble.

  10. NKogNeeTow

    A few things that have tickled me about this CBB (season?):

    1. Steve hates it and has pretty much checked out…and he’s one of the biggest BB fans I know.

    2. As large as our group is, only about 10-15 people even cared enough to comment…and they are also big fans.

    3. Even Joker’s comerenters hardly have anything to say. They sum up the entire day on TWO pages.

    4. These F-List celebrities thought they were famous before. They REALLY think they’re hot sh*t now…lol

    5. Even Gerardo and Mel checked out on us. I MISS THEM!

    • Mel

      I’m still here. I’ve just had a busy work week.

    • LO1004

      Not only do we have to deal with cry baby D-list “celebrities”, but when they actually get to talking about something good they cut the feeds or switch the cameras to an empty room. This season is a mess all around.

      • AIO_7

        ……. ” but when they actually get to talking about something good”….

        Marissa butts in with some bullshit about herself.

    • Jannie

      Hello all! Especially you, Nkog…
      Yes, I have been peeking in but staying quiet because I am just get caught up…it took me all of about 20 minutes to zip through each episode.
      I appreciate the fact that there is a “Celebrity Big Brother” to watch. The older I get, sadly, the less interested I am in the Olympics(except downhill skiing). Buuuutttt…. It really seems rigged for Omarosa. When she was “exempted” from the first eviction that was it for me. And does anyone really believe she could sit her butt on that plank the longest to win HOH? CBS is loving the fact that she dishes on Trump and the White House. Major news networks are showing clips and that’s the only reason she is still there. Last year she said we would all be bowing down to Trump and now she is spilling secrets…puhleeeze.
      Marissa sounds like a nightmare, I don’t have feeds or BBAD, so it’s just you guys and the network shoes. I think thats plenty 🙂
      Maybe rooting for Ross to win. He sounds like he is playing the best game. Can’t stand Brandi, Ari always sounds like she is reading(badly) from a script in the DR, and I wish “christian” Omorosa would just go away.
      So that’s my 2 cents. Hoping you are all surviving winter – it’s been freezing here in MN! So good to see all the familiar names…will promise to check in more!

      • Mel

        Hey Jannie, glad you checked in! Stay warm. I’m in MO so I can’t get to work for icy roads on Monday and by Thursday, Im looking for shorts and tshrts!

      • NKogNeeTow

        JANNIE! So good to “see you again”! I didn’t get the Feeds either. It was bad enough when I had them for OTT. My nosey azz didn’t go to bed until they did and I wound up staying up all night and nodding out all day. Besides, as much as I’m enjoying this game, these people aren’t interesting enough to stay up all night. It’s bad enough that I waste my time on BBAD…lol.

        I HOPE they didn’t rig it for Omarosa. I still can’t stand her but I like the BB Omarosa better than I like the real life, out of the house Omarosa. Maybe after the show, we can keep her locked up in there for posterity. And yes, she is spilling that WH tea just to make herself more interesting. She throws out the stories and no matter how much they dislike her, the HG eat it up.

        I like Ross too…even if he is a rat, he’s not the nasty kind of rat that Andy was. Brandy…err, Brandi….what can I say about her? With her failing reality career at an end, maybe she can be a spokeswoman for some wine company.

      • NKogNeeTow

        The weather is crazy here in MD too Mel. Tuesday it was 73, today 78 and tomorrow it’s suppose to be in the low 40s. I can’t wait for spring!

  11. hogwild

    If CBS is reading what people on sites like this are saying about CBB (unlikely) I don’t think it will be back.

  12. JD

    I had no clue who Marrisa was until I read Steve’s bio on her. I haven’t watched Celebrity season because I’ve had enough of Omorosa from the first time she was on the Apprentice. I do read the feed BBJ and read the comments here. Between all of you, Steve and Melinda I get the best of what’s happening. Thank you! That being said and what is said about Marrisa, it’s funny Steve wrote “Marissa may be a snoozer for the cast”. I bet everyone was sure hopping that was true. Steve is usually spot in about people. This time I think it’s because like the rest of us he didn’t know who the heck she was. As for Metta, I’ve seen him in other things and he quit. I wasn’t surprised when he did. Shannon loves to play and compete but when she loses she pouts and doesn’t want to play anymore. She’s done that on other shows. Again no surprise. Keisha she’s a mom away from her baby. Yes she knew she would be away at the same time sometimes you don’t realize how it will affect someone and maybe she has postpartum depression. So it shouldn’t have been a surprise either. What they needed for a short season of celebrities are the hardcore at least B list celebrities who really want to fight and win. Of course that staure probably wouldn’t find anyone. More likely if it was for charity there could be a better chance. Since that it is highly unlikely we get people like Marrisa. Geez I forgot who she was again. Anyway thank you all for your enjoyable comments. I’ve been here for years and this page and all of you are the best part of ANY Big Brother season.

  13. Mel

    Am I crazy and alone on still liking this mini season? I don’t like that two people quit and I can’t stand listening to Marissa but we’ve had people quit before and people in the past we didn’t like to hear on the feeds. I haven’t really factored the celebrity thing into it because they aren’t big celebrities. I just looked at it as people strategizing and hungry to win. As far as that goes, I think they’re a pretty competitive bunch. I feel like I’ve seen as much strategizing, alliance switching and game activity in the past couple of weeks that I saw in the entire 3 months last summer. Shannon was competing and they way Chuck talked, I think he would have too. I don’t care for Omarosa, think James is too cocky, can’t stand to hear Marissa, watched Mark play a floater game, seen Ross play the rat game and watched Brandi be a drunken train wreck but….. all of them are playing hard and playing to win. Ari is playing to win too. I just left her out of that group because she doesn’t annoy me. I’m actually impressed at how hard most of them have gone an I’ve enjoyed it.

    • AIO_7

      ……. ” I’ve enjoyed it.”

      Me too.

    • hogwild

      I don’t think your crazy or alone I think the reason a lot of people haven’t cared for CBB is these people just aren’t that interesting and there is just not enough time to form for lack of a better word a bound with anyone. Go back to last season at the start Paul was mister popular and Cody very much disliked by the end many people were fed up with Paul and Cody won AFP you really can’t have something like that in this short a season.

    • NKogNeeTow

      “Am I crazy and alone on still liking this mini season?”

      Noooope! They can be boring sometimes but I’m still liking it.

      And Yeppppp! I agree with your accessments of all of them.

  14. Mel

    Brandi doesn’t stand a chance. James and Marissa told each other where they would hide vetos.

  15. Ann

    Ross reminds me of that little rat Andy who was on the same season with crazy Amanda & Pizza boy McCrae. I think Andy won.

  16. Ann

    I don’t bother watching BBAD & I’m glad I didn’t get All Access because I can’t stand listening to Marissa & I can’t stand that wanna be forever young mean girl, over botox injected, drunken lush Brandi. I don’t like Omarosa after seeing the type of person she was on The Apprentice. She’s a liar, cheater, backstabbing, manipulative witch. She’s playing the game though. I don’t have anything bad to say about Ari, I hope she wins. James thinks he’s ALL THAT & a bag of chips but we’ve all seen better & he’s cocky ass hell. Ross as I said before reminds me of Rat boy Andy. Mark, Mark who?

  17. Alda

    I don’t mind Ari at all.I like James and Mark.I don’t like Omarosa,never did.Marissa is off the charts,hyper.Watching Ross over the years he seems like a genuine good person.Last but not least Brandi.She needs a therapist.That’s my take on these “celebrities.”

  18. hogwild

    Watching tonight and I only got a glance at this so I’m not sure but I could swear I saw Ari using using a tablet or IPad I thought you were not supposed to allowed any of that type stuff in the house.

  19. hogwild

    I can’t take Marissa voice anymore I have had to mute the tv and use closed captions.

  20. kneeless

    Hello all my BBJ friends! I think this is the least engaged I have ever been with BB. I hoped to like Marissa when the season began but those hopes were soon gone! When they announced the polls opening for favorite houseguest I had to think a long time & finally have decided on Ari. She seems to be the most level headed & least drama-filled. I don’t mind Ross & even though I’ve never been a big Mark McGrath fan, he has grown on me a little. Other than that, the rest, blah. Still love me some BB but this hasn’t been my favorite!

    • NKogNeeTow

      KNEES! Good to see you too. You and Annie showed up just in the nick of time. As soon as they announced another fan vote, I thought, “not this crap again”. They messed up last week with that Veto/Diamond thing. I’m with Mel….Leave us out of it! Besides, I don’t like any of them enough to want to give them extra money.

  21. kneeless

    I have never watched CBB UK, but I know it is pretty popular. What is their CBB like?

  22. NKogNeeTow

    Now I’m off to hopefully watch Jessica and Cody win The Amazing Race. Can’t believe I just said that. I hated them on BB, but I love them on AR.

    I also said that I thought they wouldn’t last, but, I am happy to admit I’m wrong. They compliment each other very well and I hope they do get married and last a long time. Okay, that’s enough retractions for one day 🙂

  23. Mel

    I think Ariadna won the veto.

  24. NKogNeeTow

    Jessica and Cody made to the F3 teams on AR. They’re about to start the final leg of the race now….fingers crossed X
