I think that with Erik not gone like alot of us wanted we should try and ruin him with americas vote. Who is every one anti Erik voting for him to get put on the block?

The ghost voters have already decided to ruin Eric and are well onto their way in accomplishing that task.
Eric's goal was to make sequester and he knew he could never win, so I'm sure he's fine with that.

If the noms stay the same they are targeting Dick. We have to get Eric to vote for Danielle. That will at least cause a rift in the gang bang wondering who cast the dissenting vote. Of course it can be played off on Jen, Amber or Eric. If Dick or Dani comes down, then make him vote for whoever else goes up.

Chances are good now that Dick has the PoV. He will use it on Danielle and get the votes towards whoever goes up.

I think everyone should vote for Erik to Nominate Dustin until he goes. Dustin is Erik's biggest supporters

I am not okay with that.
First, the 'entertainment' value you so desperately seek will happen either way as the voting pool grows smaller and smaller, and even a well intentioned tv audience will miss the intricacies of the game.
Second, I don't think anyone fully appreciates the chance for involvement that will never happen again. Even if the producers do decide to recycle this twist, it will never fly but this one time.
Third, Eric has enough distractions as it is, and were it not for the voting forced upon him, he would be in 100% control of this game. (*Argue this all you want, but any speculation that doesn't include a strong, cohesive LNC 7 with Jen and Zach on the block is farfetched at best.)

You take dick out and the entertainment is gone! What will be left is Dustin, Eric, Jameka and Amber sitting around proclaiming how great they are and how the devestated Dick. Danielle will sit around boo-hooing, waiting to leave. And Jen and Zach will wait to be evicted, not really doing much to prevent it. It will be mildly interesting as they decide how to stab one another.
The only chance of it staying interesting is if Zach or Jen gets HOH.
Then the LNC will gloat about Dick and bitch about how bad and devious Zach and Jen are being while beggin them to nom Zach or Jen and Danielle. Amber will cry cause she wanted HOH sooo bad. Jameka will say mmmmm.
The first season of BB, America did the evictions after all houseguests voted for two people and the two with the most votes got the boot. How is that for America's influence and a bit of fair play for the contestants? Saying we may lose this twist of abused, it is not possible. CBS and Endomol will do as they please and as long as they can make money off the feeds, text messages and sponsers, they will continue.
I think they did the America's player this year to test the waters and see how responsive the viewers would be in texting and voting online. Next season may find a larger role for the viewers.

I had my computer in my lap and was logging on to vote for Jessica (for free...no $$$ for CBS from me this year) when I got the text from Dingo.
If Eric gives Jess the silent treatment, it will add some fireworks to the game...because he already has shade on him...this will make it darker.

If we give Eric the silent treatment, he is well on his way to ruining himself. Okay, that wasn't a choice, just a thought, so...
When he did his HOH spiel to Jessica on the show tonight, was she thoughtfully considering the possibility that Eric is brilliant? and Dustin would be a good choice for a 'pawn'? Oh, come on, we know NOT!! Or was she maybe thinking, "I rock your world? Let's see what you say Thursday, when I show you 'rock your world'." Seize the moment, Jessica!!!
My first thought was vote Jessica, her dad will appreciate it, as a parent, I would. Then I thought, wait, if we vote Dustin, his buddy, his pal, Eric would be in her face talking 90 to nothing for the next few days, and she will back door him, just to get him out of her face, forever.
What to do, what to do? Magic ping pong ball, show me the way.

If Jess gets the silent treatment, something way out of character for Eric, she might think that something is really going on with him. This might help to get Dustin on the block after POV. Jess is the one person Eric could not stand to be able to talk to for a day or so. It would drive him crazy:(, it would make the LNC question him:confused:.
Who would he have to talk to since Dustin, Jameka and Amber are attached to Jessica right now? Could he risk talking extensively to Jen or Zach?

I think Eric is already busted for talking with Jen tonight, whether he is aware that he was caught or not. Perfect time for him to have to stop talking with Jessica; he wouldn't be able to give her some lame excuse for the conversation.
Perhaps she will give him the silent treatment, for the Jen talk, and by some slim chance, America voted for Dustin to get the silent treatment, and he will be cut off from two, and his character will force him to talk with Jen, who will be POed that he blew their secret alliance, and she will stop talking with him. That's a new twist: sequester while you are still in the house.

I love America's Pawn. This is some fabulous interactive television if I do say so myself. Just remember before you try and defend Eric. These tasks are given to him but he has the choice of whether or not to do them. The only involuntary thing we can do is decide his vote for him.
He is well aware of the situation he creates by giving Jessica the silent treatment. I can't wait to see him in the DR tomorrow night when he gets his task. But of course, the producers are there to give him a viable excuse. I bet he is feeling sick though. Indigestion, nausea, uncontrolled bowel movements.
I wonder if the producers will try and persuade Jen and Zach's vote if Dustin gets on the block. Can't let their most popular player Dick get evicted without saying something.

Actually he does not have a choice whether to do them.. not the vote or who to try to put up or any of the silly ones.. he has to attempt each task

Interesting article - thanks for posting it. Now if we could just get them to give us a count of completed tasks.

Jessica was going to seize the moment, alright. She calls him up to her private HoH room, tells him to lock the door.
He's on a mission from 'America' to not to speak to her for twelve hours the next day, so he has to cram in all his game talk, and he knew what was going on, he said it later in the storage room. 'You cost me a night with Jessica, and I really, really wanted to.'
The only thought running through her pretty little head was 'I lick his nipples and all he wants to do is talk game.' Would they ever hook up if they weren't locked up together? Debatable. Argue that he couldn't have scored that night and you lose the right to call anyone a nerd.
There is a veritable legion of people distraught over the loss of the Nick/Dani showmance (I still remember He-man and Skeletor) who somehow think that Dick is the only interesting person left in the house. Dick built the late night crew in the first place, and once it's target was gone, presented himself as a common enemy.
Right now, without any AP, the LNC 7 would have Jen and Zach on the block and it would be time to canabalize. Who would Dick use the PoV on, if at all?
When I said that it will only fly this one time is that it will no longer come to any houseguest as a surprise. Ferverntly voting to ruin Eric in an effort to protest the producer's decision will only have the opposite effect.
Congratulations. The three least interesting people in the house stand the best chance of winning. Good Job 'America'.
