Newbie Preview - Meet Jodi Rollins, NOT a Floater #BB14


Meet Jodi Rollins, one of the lucky newbies cast for Big Brother 14.  Only about 72 hours left-- 3 days--before the CBS show premieres, and the SuperPass Early Bird Offer expires.  Be sure to lock yourself in at the 3-month sale price of $29.99 before then.  Or pay a little more later, your choice.  You can get the ball rolling on your own live feed stream by clicking on the icon in the upper left side of this webpage.

OK.  Here we go.

1.  Jodi is a 42 year old who is a newlywed--she got married 9 months ago, and has 5 step-kids.  In this interview she did not discuss any details around that situation, but I know I would have quite a few questions for her about that.  She does proclaim loudly that there will be no showmancing for her this year, since she is married.

2.  How many stepchildren does Jodi have?  Five, yes five.

3. Jodi is very articulate and enthusiastic.   She actually might be a native Californian, because I can't detect any other traces of accent.  The town she lives in Calipatria is fun to pronounce, but sounds like it is out in the desert---an hour south of L.A and two hours east of San Diego (or something like that).

 4.  Jodi describes herself as a Big Brother Super Fan.  She shows us the pyramid structure of the Fandom, and shows us that she is right there at the top, with Rachel Reilly right beneath her. (?)   She watches the live feeds, she goes on all of the websites, and she also watches Showtime's Big Brother After Dark.  And she has watched every single season on CBS, and now she is going to live it.  She can't wait to get in the house and touch things, see how big the swimming pool is, and even make some lifelong friends if she can. 

5.  She says she visits Jokers, but she says that hesitantly, like there was a question mark at the end of the name.  So that was a little strange.  She also mentioned "a new website called Realitea", and didn't seem 100% sure of that.  She goes on the message boards and chat rooms and greets other posters that she remembers from last year.  Jodi extols the virtues of the live feeds and how great they are.  She loves how you can flashback the feeds to see the fights, and "what Lane did".  She admits she is a nerd.  (Me too, Jodi.)

[SuperPass clearly had Laremy ask each house guest about their live feed habits, and to do a sales pitch for us. Some of them are more natural about this than others.  I feel Jodi's enthusiasm, but she laid it on a little too thick, I think.]

6.  She thinks she will have to disclose that she is a Big Brother fan in the house, because otherwise they will figure it out and when you get caught lying in the BB house, you will be sorry.

 
7.  She backs up her knowledge of all things Big Brother by mentioning  past Big Brother players she doesn't like.  She mentions Shannon (BB2) and her nasty toothbrush escapades, and Amy from BB3.  She bravely states that she is not a Jeff nor a Jordan fan.  She might like them outside the house, but not the way they conducted themselves in it.  She mentions Jeff's temper.  (If Jodi feels this way, she should NOT have said it since she may depend on the Big Brother fans for votes of some sort at some time.  Say Bye Bye to Fan Favorite, Jodi.)

8. She also doesn't like Russell from BB11, but then incorrectly attributes the "Technotronics" issue to him.  Maybe she meant his mocking of Jeff for trying to spell that stupid word, but many people online are using this error to discredit Jodi's Big Brother knowledge.  I do think she is a bona fide fan, but is such a nervous chatterbox that her mouth gets ahead of her mind sometimes.

9.  Did I mention that Jodi is a chatterbox?  Yes, she is.  I now understand why she is being compared to Kalia by the fans.  I thought that was a racist-type attitude, but after seeing and listening to her I get it.  Kalia was also very self-confident going into the game in her interviews last year.


10.  Speaking of self-confidence, Jodi mentions that she expects to be on Big Brother All Stars.  Slow down there Jodi.  Let's get through this season first, OK?  Also Jodi will not be a floater and gives us at least 87 reasons why floating is a bad thing.

11.  She expects to do well in the competitions because she has run two LA marathons and is outdoors in the desert exercising all the time.  She lifts weights, does spinning class, and flexes a bicep to prove it. She admits that her body isn't in perfect shape, but she thinks she is in good enough shape to kick some butt in there this year.  She thinks the "Before and After" competitions might be the hardest for her, but otherwise the mental challenges should be good for her too.

12.  She is going to accept being on slop as a diet technique and make the best of it.   She has always wondered what it tastes like so she will try not to be the type of house guest who whines about it.

13.  She doesn't along with opinionated, extremely talkative people, and acknowledges that this is because she is like that, and there may not be enough room in the house for both of them.


14.  She is certain to cry in the house this year, particularly when she has PMS.

15.  She doesn't mind a little mess, but doesn't want to live with dirty people with filthy habits.

16.  The Hudsucker Proxy is her favorite movie. It is cool and creative and she says we should check it out if we haven't seen it yet.  (I think Tim Robbins is the star.)   She doesn't read books very often and jokes that all she reads is websites.

17.  Her favorite musician is John Mayer.  Also Michael Buble, Mary J. Blige and Fiona Apple.  She will buy their CD's immediately without even hearing one song.

18.  She gives a shout out to "Birthday Cake" whom I guess is someone who posts on the message boards or websites.  Jodi says that "they both liked Danny" last year so she remembers that.  OK. Hmmm.   Who the fuck is Danny?  Does she mean Dom?  Once again I do think she watched the show last year, but got the name wrong.  She is going to have to get the details right if she wants to win the fact-based mental challenges, huh?

19.  Unless Danny is someone else entirely.  Maybe she was talking about Real World or Flavor of Love, or something like that.  I think she knew what she meant, but I don't.  I hope she knows which show she was cast for.

FEEDWATCHER FORECAST:  I can see why they cast Jodi.  She is very energetic and her smile looks great on camera.  I think the fans are going to give her a beating due to the things she said about Jeff and Jordan as well as her resemblance to Kalia.  I will go ahead and counsel Jodi now to be sure to be very dainty with her chewing and swallowing at all times in the house because someone will surely release a YouTube video of her eating and Evel Dick is going to show it over and over on his podcast.

I think Jodi will at least make the Jury.  Everyone will think they can wait and get her out later, so that will be to her advantage.  I think it is going to suck for her to be in the house with all of those bikini bombshells, but she seems confident in her own skin, so that's a plus.

Jodi is a server in a chain restaurant.  I'm pretty sure she would be that server that isn't content to just bring you extra honey mustard or quietly refill your Diet Coke and scurry back to her station.  She is going to stand there and interrupt your table talk and will not recognize the subtle clues to back the fuck up and go away.  However she would sing Happy Birthday the loudest when they all come to your table with a cupcake and candle.  I'm guessing Macaroni Grill?  PF Changs? TGI Fridays?   We'll find out soon enough where Jodi works because she is going to tell us on the live feeds!  And tell us again!  And again!!

All in good fun Jodi.  Please don't run over here and kick my ass.

Who Will Be Jodi's Mentor?  Whoever chooses last for their last female team member.  Oooo Ouch.  I know, I know I'm going to hell for being so mean.  Guilty as charged.
