He has been not only participating in some of the negative behavior, he has not challenged or stepped up to say that type of behavior is wrong when it occurs by other cast members.  I don't follow him or know of him, but it is safe to say that if he had a good character, he sold it for a chance to win $500,000.  Yes, it is Big Brother.  But there have been other contestants (and actual winners) who didn't have to go that route.

He gets so little airtime, you'd ONLY know he exists in the feeds.

I do hate how CBS sanitizes much of their behavior. Let the country see how they really are instead of making them beacons of popularity.

I dont watch the feeds, and I'm sure Im not alone and wouldnt know most of the negative stuff without snippwys of comments here.

Tommy is the definition of a BB "floater".  I imagine that will get him to the bottom 6 (if not further).

With someone like Tommy, id like to think he's not truly deep down like the rest of these folks. Im not excusing his behavior, but remember its a game. The people who area awful have full control of the game and results right now, and if you want to win you need to be able to deal with that. I can see why he wouldn't say anything. Its a bit sad not hearing him talk behind their back or anything but lets see his reactions as the show goes on. Its only been 3 weeks he's not going to crucify these people and ruin his game.

The website "Survivor Sucks" not only has a thread re what is seen on the life feeds, but another thread devoted entire to the obvious racism at work in the house. Anybody interested can find more information there.

The only thing I have ever seen Tommy in was when he was doing The Wizard Of Oz in summer stock.

I feel like Tommy is starting to show a little bit more compassion and good will, especially towards Nicole who is obviously telling the truth as we, the viewers know. I think deep down Tommy knows that Grat8ful is corrupt and he knows the truth about Nick and Bella. It’s all just a giant clusterfork, and Nicole will go down for exhibiting kindness and trust.

Also I detest reality television aside from cooking shows, but something about the sheer wtf-ness of Big Brother has always caught my attention and I tune in every week. It’s a batsh!t, but I can’t stop watching.

I have been routing for Tommy since day 1, but Im soooo disappointed with the houseguests that he has aligned with. Tonight however he has started to realize that some of his alliance are bullies. 

I really hope this alliance is split up and he aligns with different players.

As much as I love Tommy I took the show off my DVR because of all the editing that has been done. The majority of these people (sans Tommy) are horrendous. I am not wasting 3 nights a week watching trash being glorified.

Sadly he was also bullying Nicole on the live feeds. The show didn't really show that but he's said a lot of nasty stuff as well. I don't have exact examples but they are easily google-able. Not to burst your bubble but he's not that great either sadly. Certainly disappointing.

That's really disappointing that he is bullying her too.

Ya I mean he's not quite at the level they are but he's not totally innocent either if that makes sense. He also says nasty stuff behind their backs.

His game play basically is to hug everyone and tell them how much he loves and cares for everyone. I think as a result he is sitting in the middle and will not go home anytime soon. I do not think he will get close to winning since his strategy is rather simplistic. He does not seem like he has a lot of depth to him.

This year's BB experience has been like revisiting a 1950's high school. The Jocks and the Cheerleaders verses the book smarts and the minorities of color. Bella is the mean girl. The racism on the show has been embarrassing and it was magnified when the first three evicted were all of color and separated and forced to live under worse conditions than everyone else.

You forgot that he loves to give them dance lessons. If this were Grease, he could easily be Cha-Cha.

I think CBS tries to stay away from racism by not making a big deal out of it or even editing so the television audience does not see it. It is a touchy subject even in an era where the topic is at the forefront of discussions especially politically. I have even noticed on these boards that some opinions as to what is racist have been deleted. The opinions were reponses to what others had posted.

According to Evel Dick, during a diary session they addressed to Jack, his racist remarks.  He came out crying.  But was more worried about how the audience was perceiving him, then what he has actually said and done.

Artman, I am not understanding the relationship between Evil Dick and Jack? Does Evil Dick have a blog or something?

Exactly, and he is perhaps the most outspoken of the bloggers and has played the game himself. So ED is the most quotable. At one time, I think he used to do championship night interviews with the BB cast in the backyard, but IIRC Dick had some sort of falling out with CBS and now somebody blander does the interviews.

SmoothLover, If you go on BigBrother Network and Jokers, under comments or blogs, past Big Brother houseguests regularly voice their opinions.  Evil Dick is one of the more outspoken.  Here is something really crazy.  SPOILER!!!!!!  When Jack was nominated by Cliff, Tommy started crying and stated that the game was unfair.  I couldn't believe it.

OMG! Really! For some reason I am not surprised. I can't believe that Christie is actually thinking of using her power on Jack. Such a dumb move!

I just read the exit interviews with David, Ovi and Kemi at GoldDerby.com, and they all agree that Tommy is the best player in the ''Big Brother'' household and say everyone loves him.

GoldDerby.com points out that the first three evictions are all minorities, and asked David if he felt they were targeted or whether it was ''pure coincidence.'' He doesn't seem to think they were racially motivated; it's just how the game played out. I wonder if he'll still think that after seeing the live feeds.

I am sure he has changed his toon.

David hasn't changed his tune yet on whether the minorities were targeted. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he says: ''I don't think it was racial. I think the cards fell the way they feel.''

And his Camp Comeback colleague Ovi told EW that he blames their evictions more on ''mob mentality'' than ''blatant racism.''
