James Earned 'BB17's America's Favorite Player

Well, this was absolutely the worst thing that could have possibly happened on double eviction Thursday. Not only was Meg voted out, but James was also evicted from Big Brother 17 . What fresh hell am I living in where all of my favorite houseguests are getting picked off one-by-one, and I'm left with Austin — the Dothraki from Game of Thrones — rounding third base with Liz in the HOH room? I know I'm not alone in this opinion, but I just wanted to see James win something and just for his daughter — because he deserves it. That's why I'm campaigning for James as America's Favorite Player. And once again, I know I'm not alone in this opinion. Together we stand.

Sure, there's a bright side to the double eviction going down the way it did. James and Meg — the two best friends to ever exist — will be reunited in the jury house, but does that really matter, you guys? No. It doesn't. I don't care about the jury house. I don't care if Shelli is reading Infinite Jest, I don't care if Becky painting her infected toe, or Jackie is teaching them all how to salsa dance. The Big Brother house is now void of any good. John has lost his spark, and Steve has lost his mind (how do you not flip the votes, ugh), which is why it seems Big Brother Twitter is making sure James is going to win the congeniality award for America's Favorite Player.

He's beauty and he's grace, he's Mr. America's Favorite Player.

Twitter came alive after James was evicted from the house. If you didn't follow Big Brother , you might think that something horrible had happened to this James person — some of these tweets seriously sound like mourning. The good news is, it seems like James is already a frontrunner for the (other) Big Brother prize.

Justin Long and I understand each other in this situation. It's devastating, and it's cry-worthy, but we will be strong and we will move on. James deserves the America's Favorite Player prize of $50,000. As for the other houseguests...
