Ian Terry (‘Big Brother 22’) throws a temper tantrum after being nominated for eviction: ‘I am just enraged!’

Published

“I am just enraged!” screamed Ian Terry at the end of Tuesday’s episode of “Big Brother 22.” The former winner had a full-blown temper tantrum in the Diary Room, kicking at something off-camera and rubbing his head as he asked, “Like, how f***ing stupid can she be? J**** ch****!” Now either Ian or Tyler Crispen will be evicted on Thursday night.

Let’s rewind. Ian was put up as a replacement nominee by Head of Household Dani Briones after Da’Vonne Rogers used the Veto to save Kevin Campbell from the block. That meant Dani had to put up a fourth nominee for the week (David Alexander saved himself thanks to the Disruptor power), and she chose Ian as she was in alliances with everyone else. “I think this might go the way she doesn’t want it to,” Ian sighed.

“I told everyone Tyler is my number one target,” Dani explained to the camera, referencing her Veto meeting speech in which she said she’d be “campaigning fully” against him. “In fact, I said that to convince Ian that he is 100% safe because at this point in the game it would be foolish of me to go against the Committee.” So if we take her word for it, that means Ian will indeed be going home this week … unless something crazy happens in the next 48 hours.

Dani begged Da’Vonne not to use the power to save Kevin, as doing so would mean Dani getting even more blood on her hands. But Da’Vonne chose to chart her own course in the game. “I’m sorry that this move does not work with your game,” she proclaimed in the DR, “but I came here to play for Da’Vonne.” She continued, “I finally got my first taste of power in this house and I loved it, so hold on to your wigs, ladies. This won’t be the last time.” Indeed, after three seasons playing “Big Brother,” Da’Vonne finally won her first challenge.

While Tyler noted in the Diary Room that he still doesn’t know Dani’s “true intentions,” he added, “I’m on the block against a former winner and I’m hoping that helps my chances to stay. And if I stay, Dani, I can forgive but I cannot forget, and I’ve got my eye on you moving forward.”

Ian’s best buddy Nicole Franzel was teary-eyed when Dani put him up on the block, crying that Dani had “other options” when really she didn’t — literally everyone else in the house was in an alliance with her. Nicole could have volunteered to go up as a pawn against Tyler to protect Ian, but she didn’t.

Here’s Who Judge Judy Endorsed for President in 2020

Published

No, Judge Judy is not a Republican — she’s a registered Independent.

And for being so outspoken, she’s known for being hush-hush about her political opinions in general, leaving people surprised when she stepped out in support of Michael Bloomberg. He ran for mayor as a Republican and an independent before returning to the Democratic Party.

At one point, there were rumors swirling that Judge Judy could possibly be Donald Trump’s 2020 running mate.

She quickly put those rumors to bed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

And on the contrary, she has publicly called the president’s actions “a plague of disrespectful political discourse,” as the Chicago Tribune reports, wanting to do her part to help the nation heal by backing an able candidate.

Judge Judy has spoken, and many are waiting to see if she’ll speak out again. We’ll keep you posted!

Ian Terry (‘Big Brother 22’) exit interview: ‘It hurt’ to be evicted but I’m ‘ecstatic’ to learn ‘it was part of a good plan’

Ian Terry became the first juror from “Big Brother 22” on Thursday night when he was evicted in a 5-3 vote over Tyler Crispen. The Season 14 winner kept it classy, whispering, “It’s a blunder and it happens,” to HOH Dani Briones on his way out the door. Dani had told Ian he was a pawn earlier in the week, when in fact her alliance, the Committee, consisting of herself, Tyler, Christmas Abbott, Cody Calafiore, Nicole Franzel and Memphis Garrett, had no plans to keep him around.

“I feel like she just [threw] my whole game away, almost accidentally,” Ian told host Julie Chen Moonves following his untimely eviction. “Maybe it was a great play and I just don’t realize it, but it hurt.” When pressed on why he was hurt, Ian clarified. “I don’t have hurt feelings, but in the game it hurts. It’s a lot of new feelings. I’ve never really been nominated before. That was new, evicted’s new. It’s just new feelings, that’s all.”

“People are a lot smarter than to keep a former winner in the game,” Ian conceded when asked if the house was wrong to send him packing. “They just took the opportunity to boot me out and it was the right play for most of them, honestly.”

Because Ian is now a member of the jury, it was not revealed to him that David Alexander, Kevin Campbell and Da’Vonne Rogers voted for him to stay, but he’s not surprised he got three votes. “I fought hard to stay in all the way to the last minute,” he revealed. “I left nothing on the court. I tried to collect as many votes as I could, I didn’t want to roll over and die.”

Earlier in the week Ian blasted Dani for putting him on the block, stating that he would refuse to vote for her if she makes it to finale night. Outside of the house, Ian sang a different tune when asked if he felt betrayed. “Absolutely not,” he asserted. “It’s a game.”

When Julie asked if he felt All-Stars was more difficult for him than Season 14, Ian had a humble response. “Last time I was in there, there were only three good players and one of them probably didn’t really care,” he said. “This time everybody in there is pretty good and everybody cares.” Despite being the sixth player evicted this time around, Ian maintained his strategy of laying low was the correct one.

But why did Ian reject Kaysar Ridha‘s offer to work with him earlier in the season? “I had heard Janelle [Pierzina] talking about me and Nicole when she thought I was asleep in the bedroom,” he revealed. “It was in regards to trying to nominate both of us. Because of that I was a little hesitant to work with Janelle, and thus Kaysar. I love Kaysar though.”

When Julie showed Ian the goodbye messages from some of his housemates, Tyler and Nicole both revealed they were in a larger alliance known as the Committee. How did that make Ian feel? “Ecstatic!” he exclaimed. “For a while I just thought I was getting ganged up on by lousy players. To see that it’s just a good plan and they got me, that’s awesome! Good for them. Kudos!”

Who Is Tristan Harris From The Social Dilemma?

Published

By

Since The Social Dilemma hit Netflix, social media users have been up in arms regarding the tech industry’s intrusion on our everyday lives, especially in regard to mental health. The documentary follows Skyler Gisondo and Vincent Kartheiser as they point out the dangerous effects social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have on the average citizen. Current and former Silicon Valley bigwigs weigh in, including Tristan Harris, who gives one of the scariest revelations to come from the film: “if you’re not paying for the product, you are the product.”

A former Google design ethicist, Harris attended Stanford, where he studied computer science with a focus on human-computer interaction (HCI). While pursuing his education, he worked at Apple, where he had tremendous success with his invention of the “Spotlight For Help” feature. Commonly known as the magnify glass icon on Apple products, this search bar is still in use today. Not too long after, he began working on a startup called Apture, which proved to be another hit for the San Francisco native. Google acquired Apture in 2011, and Harris dropped out of his master’s program at Stanford for a position at Google.

As Google’s design ethicist and product philosopher, Harris studied how screen applications affect consumers in terms of their behavior, patterns, connections, and overall health or attitude. There, he spent time “developing a framework for how technology should ‘ethically’ steer the thoughts and actions” of people from their screening applications. It was his three years at Google where Harris proved just how addictive mobile devices and other products are designed to be.

Harris went on to work with Time Well Spent, a nonprofit initiative, on “reforming the attention economy.” In 2019, he went before the US Senate to testify for a hearing on “Persuasive Technology and Optimizing For Engagement,” where he illustrated how the tech industry is utilizing algorithms and machine learning to manipulate consumers.

Now, Harris is the cofounder of the Center For Humane Technology, where he aims to “reverse ‘human downgrading’ and realign technology with humanity.” With cofounder Aza Raskin, he hosts Your Undivided Attention, a podcast dedicated to conversing with other tech experts.
