house guests to Big Brother: screw you and your $50K.
They may be stupid for refusing Big Brother‘s offer of not $10,000, not $20,000, but $50,000 to leave the house, but you have to give credit to the house guests for making the producers’ lives hell.

Also last night, Cassandra, Curtis and Eddie were marked for banishment, and Karen and Brittany made live in-studio appearances. Brittany got to talk to one house guest; she talked to Josh in the red room and spilled as much information as she could–but Josh decided to not tell the other house guests what she said. And the drama continues.
