I would agree with Cousin Jake on this.

A long time ago.... the Real World did one of their reunion shows... where all the casts from all the shows up to that point reunited. I am having a brain fart but... the black girl from the first season... uuugggg... cant remember the name.... sorry. Anyway... she gave the best line & I will never forget it..... essentially she said... Dont be mad at production if they showed you in a certain light.... they showed what you gave them & that is what they had to work with.

If a reality star spends more time showing only one side of their personality & does not give much of the other facets to them personality... then that is all production has to work with.

I know there are a lot of Jessica fans.. & that is great for Jess. But really... the first week she didnt speak... several weeks following she spent laying low & being silly & loud with Joe, Eric, Jameka, & even Daniele. She did have a few intelligent conversations 1 with Joe right before his eviction, a couple with Eric where basically he was producing his manipulation skills, & perhaps one or two with Jameka where they wanted Dick & Daniele out... but wanted someone else to do it, aside from them.

Jessica did begin to show other sides to her personality.... after she won the first HOH... but by that point her character on the show had been formed.... so they continued with it.... & she still didnt show much of how intelligent or well spoken she is.

My point is... it isnt all productions fault that we saw only one side of the HGs that we saw.... they need to realize that is what they gave them most of the time, so that is what they had to work with.

Anyway... My opinion... only.


Wasn't that Heather B. from the real world? I can't believe i remember that Embarassed

I like Jessica but i agree with everyone that she didn't always show herself as the most intelligent person. Personally i liked Fun Jess, i think she chose to dumb herself down a little to play the game, kinda like Janelle did in BB6. I noticed her playing dumb alot during the season just to get info from people.

I too don't buy the excuse of "I was edited that way" that many reality stars like to throw out when they come across looking like a jackass. If you give them the material, they are going to use it.

I agree that Jessica got a not so great edit in the beginning. She came across as petty, and stupid, and mean. And guess what, she probably can be those things at times. She obviously said those things. (I didn't like her then, BTW) The good news for her is that she started to show her fun loving, playful, sweet side weeks later and that overshadowed the 2-3 weeks before. She became a much more sympathetic houseguest.

I would be fucking (can I say that?) terrified if I had just entered the BB house with all these crazy ass people and my enemy (no matter how small, it was another irritation to deal with) and knowing it's being caught on film. I would be CRAZY. So, I can't fault anyone for not really being themselves and maybe even being a little bitchy at first. I'm sure there are many sides of Jessica that we didn't get to see. I think she seems like basically a sweet girl, hard working (did you hear her normal schedule? Yikes), and hard playing and loads of fun. I like her and wish her well.

Watching the feeds for BB has certainly given me a better appreciation for the edit though. Shows like Real World and Survivor finish filming so the editors have an easier time with it cause they know how the story plays out andjust have to complete the arcs. I understand that BB doesn't have that luxury, but I wish they would be more willing to adapt their edits of people as it goes on. This season in particular I was frustrated with the edits of Jameka, who could be extremely fun and funny but was portrayed as only a crazy religious nut, and Jen, who was into her own looks but was also really kind to everyone in the house even when they didn't deserve it from her (well, except Dani sometimes).

Even in her last interview Jessica said she refused to leave a mean goodbye message to Carol and the producers got her back by showing Carol a montage of all the stuff she did say the first few days in the house - now normally this would be no big deal since Carol wasn't on the jury, but since America was voting to target people, this clip is most likely what got her as the target that week and could have gotten her eliminated from the game.

Sorry, this is a bit of a rambler and more about the editing of the show than about Jess.
