big brother 15 power poll 5.0

"Oh I know you're going.  But I can't believe --
It's the way that you're leaving.
It's like we never knew each other at all!
It may be my fault?

I gave you too many reasons.  Being alone,
When you didn't want to.
I thought you'd always be there!
I almost believed you.

All this time?
I still remember everything you said.
There's so much you promised,
How could I ever forget?

Listen ...

You know I love you, but I just can't take this.
You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps.
Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this.
You know I want to, but I'm in too deep ..."

-- "In Too Deep" by Genesis.

--------------------

Well, give CBS this: when they promise us an explosive live show?  They deliver an explosive live show.

Epic verbal showdown between Candice and GinaMarie?  Check.  Multiple houseguests crying due to insults being hurled around?  Check.  Shocking back-door eviction to end the special "one week in one hour, live!" episode?  You betcha.

Let's do this, although this'll be a quickie poll, not the in-depth type you're more used to.  Sorry; got too much stuff going on right now.

Prior editions of the Big Brother 15 Power Poll:

Power Poll 4.0
Power Poll 3.0
Power Poll 2.0
Power Poll 1.0

As always, rankings are based on two things:

(a) how I feel about the houseguest, and
(b) how entertaining is said houseguest.

(B) always trumps (A).

Key: Rank (4.0 ranking, 3.0 ranking, 2.0 ranking, 1.0 ranking).  Reason(s) for current ranking.

And just because (I need to crank this out quick to get on to other stuff that matters more to me)?  I'm giving you a theme!  A Shakespeare quote to fit each houseguest!  (kazoo voice) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy?
