I don't know if I agree with NHS about Tim and Ingrid being equal to Matt, but these actors (at least so far) don't seem to be on par with the first ones. Gerrard looks to be set up as this season's Hutch, as Tim's nemesis, just for totally different reasons. To some degree Ernie, the heir, could play the nemesis as well, but I could see him more becoming the buddy type. The stalker is going to be great, especially if he's tossed early enough to keep peering in windows and ends up making them have security guards start appearing everywhere. Rita, the drunk, was played so over-the-top that she had to go since her act would get really stale, really quick. The weeper is a much more subtle character, so her elimination is going to be fun (the bit with Austin not remembering her name was perfect to set her up as an emotional wreck).
The other castmates haven't really done enough to establish themselves, but there's plenty of time to get going. I'm having a hard time guessing who the first male eliminated will be in this field. From the previews, it looks like Montecore could eliminate himself any day now; that clip at the end was just scary.
Something about Tim just rubs me the wrong way. It's not really fair to compare him to Matt, since they're two totally different people, but his performance in the striptease at least shows he's here to play the game.
Ingrid is just a little too observant for this show. Granted Gina in JS1 had a very rehearsed sounding speech for her elimination, but they chucked her immediately. Here you've got two of the four remaining women already are kind of suspicious. That, and the producers are already looking for how to get Tim away from Ingrid so she's not putting doubt in his mind. That said, Ingrid is also there to play the game and she's going to be alot of fun.
Something else that could be funny, but really tempting fate, would be to have walk-on roles for some of the JS1 cast. Like if they do something like I mentioned with the stalker, if Hutch was one of the security guys (that being his "real" job). I do expect Matt to play some part in the reveal.
Fun stuff, I'm looking forward to next Tuesday.
