Jessie and Florida Championship member[edit]

I removed the below quoted text from Jessie's section as it was unreferenced and when I checked the Florida Wrestling website, he is not listed as part of their talent pool.

"and is currently a pro wrestler wrestling in the WWE's developmental league Florida Championship Wrestling under the name Jesse "Young Gunz" Godderz". --Jordan 1972 (talk) 23:55, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Is it right to mention he has posed for gay porn too ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.255.107.88 (talk) 19:18, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Gay porn? He has only done nude photo shoots (which doesn't mean gay porn). It doesn't seem important enough to mention; otherwise, we would have to do it for all of the people on Wikipedia (and there are quite a lot). –túrianpatois 17:29, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Citation for reason why Chima was expelled by producers[edit]

Chima's bio said she was expelled from the house for refusing to pay for the microphone she destroyed...The citation provided said nothing about a microphone, and CBS has yet to release an exact reason why she was expelled besides having broken the rules. Please advise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.205.227.111 (talk) 03:52, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

The information is correct. There may be more, but what is listed right now is correct. –túrianpatois 04:21, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Should the citation be updated to cite the information given in the article? The citation given clearly does not mention anything about a microphone —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.205.159.19 (talk) 04:51, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
There multiple citations on both articles. And the live feeds show undeniable proof she threw it (including pictures from it). –túrianpatois 04:57, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
It should be noted that when a citation is after a statement of apparent fact, it should be related to that statement. Therefore, the citation has been changed to a related citation. Yes, there is proof that the statement was true, and that proof has now been tied to that citation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Timmyj2008 (talkcontribs) 04:58, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
But not with a reliable source, so I've removed it and added a citation needed tag. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 20:41, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Added. –túrianpatois 21:46, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Not a reliable source. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:27, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Um, yes it is. Technically we don't need one since it was ON the show. That site is one of the few that are out there to be seen as reliable. –túrianpatois 01:33, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
What makes it different from any other fan site? What reliable sources does it use? What peer review does it undergo? Isn't it just the poster's original research watching of the show? Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:37, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
It has been used for years. Start a fight that is actually worth fighting. –túrianpatois 02:12, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Please see Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#Is_Big_Brother_Network_a_reliable_source_for_events_on_the_Big_Brother_reality_TV_show.3F. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 04:31, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

I replaced the Big Brother Network reference to a blog that is published by Ken Tucker, an editor-at-large with Entertainment Weekly. I'm not thrilled that it's a blog, but it appears to function as a column and is published by the magazine's website. AniMatedraw 05:33, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Here's a link to his website. Looking over his bio, it is clear he's an industry expert. AniMatedraw 05:34, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
That looks reliable enough for me. Thank you. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 19:02, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Days[edit]

First of all, the eviction days all need to be reduced by 1 number. See here for why. Second, why is "day" capitalized? 76.127.235.42 (talk) 22:00, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

1. No they don't, Julie was wrong. 2. Because it is consensus. –túrianpatois 22:18, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
But day isn't a proper noun. 76.127.235.42 (talk) 02:09, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
It is a game term, such as HouseGuest, House, and Diary Room. –túrianpatois 02:14, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
But you hear "day" and "house" used a lot. Sure, "HouseGuest" and "Diary Room," not so much. But "day" and "house" are very common words. 76.127.235.42 (talk) 02:22, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
It's consensus. –túrianpatois 02:24, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
I looked there, and I saw nothing about "day" being capitalized. 76.127.235.42 (talk) 02:26, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
It is going to stay capitalized as it is a game term. If you have a problem with something so simple, then seek a new consensus. –túrianpatois 02:29, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
The reason the terms need to be canalized needs to be clearly explained on all Big Brother articles. But the consensus is that the terms of the show need to be canalized. The main show websites around the world do this. When talking about a particular day in the house like Day 12 the word "day" needs to be capitalized. Just like House, HouseGuests (Housemates in the UK), etc. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 04:15, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Chima & Marcellas[edit]

You reverted my edits, fine, but did you even look at the actual source rather than just the web address? The forum posting was a copy of an article written by Marcellas - I will try and find the actual article written. --Jordan 1972 (talk) 22:58, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I clicked the link and read the entire post. Forums are just not reliable sources. If you find the actual articles, then feel free to add them, but citing forums is going to just get reverted. –túrianpatois 23:08, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Found the original source and have re-added the information. --Jordan 1972 (talk) 23:09, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Regarding Natalie[edit]

It says that Natalie is single on this article. But this is not true. She had a boyfriend before going on to the show, and now they are engaged. 76.127.235.42 (talk) 00:35, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Wordy[edit]

Many of the Houseguest's blurbs are overly wordy and therefore redundant to the initial page's information. Edited for succinctness. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Texteditor5 (talkcontribs) 05:50, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
