Posted by johnnysweeptheleg Angie and the T-Rex are on the block this week, and the two have completely different approaches to staying in the house one more week. Angie has taken the recommendation from people who have survived bear attacks, and remains very still in the hopes that people will forget Angie is even in the house. Jessie, on the other hand, has taken the recommendation from all of the men who have been unexpectedly dumped by a woman, and refuses to let go. Followed by lots of whining. Jessie has planted the seed of thought in Keesha’s mind that […]
Posted by johnnysweeptheleg After seven episodes, I feel I’ve finally learned enough about these houseguests that I can form completely shallow opinions about television personalities I’ve never met, and share them with the world. It’s why Al Gore invented the Internet. Libra is Brian with girls parts, as far as the whole coming on too strong in the game element is concerned. So why is it that she can talk about every player in the house and call all of the shots on who is and isn’t nominated, yet Brian was voted out for the same thing? She’s just unstable […]
Posted by johnnysweeptheleg Here’s something I’ve learned over 10 seasons of Big Brother. On an eviction night, if the editors slant heavily in one direction, the opposite individual will be voted out. Last night was no different. Every flashback consisted of houseguests who once were dead-set on voting Steven out, slowly wavering and considering a house shakeup. But no one in a position of power is going to risk it all this early only to make a move that guarantees nothing. And so, Steven is voted out unanimously. A rather dull episode overall, though we did learn a few things.
Posted by johnnysweeptheleg Jessie is a friend. Yeah, I know he’s been a good friend of mine. I can’t think of any other way to begin this recap, than quoting the Rick Springfield classic, because Jessie really has been a good friend of mine on this show. He provides so many (unintentional) laughs. Sadly, they’re the kind of laughs where his mother will sit him down once he leaves the house, and say, “Jessie, honey, they’re not laughing with you … they’re laughing at you.” Less than five minutes into the show, Jessie gives us this gem. “I’m supposedly the […]
Posted by johnnysweeptheleg The Episode 3 recap couldn’t happen, as Johnny Lawrence was out of the office representing the Cobra Kai dojo. Here it is, down and dirty in EP3: Brian was kicked out. Renny and Jessie continued to squabble on live TV. Jessie landed HOH. Done. It’s Episode 4 on Sunday night where true colors began to show through the houseguests. Case in point — Jessie. Jessie has let the power go to his meathead. My brother made the greatest observation. Jessie looks like George Michael Bluth on Arrested Development, when George Michael decides to wear the muscle suit […]
Posted by johnnysweeptheleg Big Brother is the poker table of life. It’s filled with bluffs. Players making moves. And oftentimes, it’s better to play the person and not the cards you’ve been dealt. But after two episodes, there isn’t a person at the table who hasn’t shown their poker face already. Come on, after 10 seasons, haven’t these people learned anything?! Brian could be the strongest player in the house. But he plays his cards far from the vest, and everyone at the table sees what he’s holding. Throughout BB history, players have tried playing the entire house. But Brian […]
Posted by johnnysweeptheleg When you are a reality show, is it wise to start every season with a staged “here’s your key, pretend you are shocked and surprised to be picked for the show!” segment? Who cares? Big Brother is pure Vodka and Red Bull, year in and year out. My consumption of the show both stimulates and depresses. After meeting the 13 new hamsters for the 10th season, we quickly form opinions and questions. CBS, who we already know has a target demo of 78-142 year olds, went for the obvious eye candy when they put 75-year-old former Marine, […]
Did you realize Big Brother has been around as many years as Survivor? The television series Survivor. Not the ones who gave birth to Eye of the Tiger. The 10th season begins this Sunday at 8pm EST/PST, and airs every Tuesday (9pm E/P), Wednesday and Sunday (8pm E/P) on CBS. The 13 houseguests have been revealed. The Big Brother cast consists of Winston Smith, Julia, O’Brien, Emmanuel Goldstein and George Orwell, among others. Woops. Sorry. Wrong Big Brother page on Wikipedia. For the first time in years, the cast is made up of complete strangers. No secret lovers. No bitter […]
