Gotta Love Big Brother 13
My favorite reality TV show started (well in broadcast form anyway) last night, and that show is of course the American version of Big Brother. Beginning its 13th season with only 8 out of 14 new players (6 players are from past seasons, so they are considered “all stars”) and sadly most of them seem as if they were “cast” and not just found.
If you don’t watch BB, this program takes 12 people and moves them in to a house (actually built for the game) on a sound stage in Hollywood. These
house guests then at the whim of big brother and are bound to live with one another for the duration of the game until they are nominated and evicted by the majority vote of the others left in the house. There are all sorts of social and game elements in the game including
the backstabbing, lying, and drama. Its all part of the draw for most loyal Big Brother viewers, but I really like being able to observe and dissect the behaviors of the players and see how they present themselves. Sometimes I am shocked by how I will think someone is nice, then I find out I am so wrong.
I was very lucky to have won a tweet contest for the live feeds this year, so I’ll be posting things about Big brother along the way. These are the 8 New house-guests who have been joined by three pairs of returning house guests.
