I'm back for Boob Tube Babble this week because one of my very favorite shows that I am
Yup! I am one of those creepy voyeurs who is totally in to Big Brother. If you've been living under a rock (or just don't have 3+ days a week to dedicate to a television show), Big Brother is a reality game-show where strangers are picked to live in a house, and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite, and start getting real! Okay, no, that is The Real World (huge fan of that one too - Hawaii was my ultimate fave season). In Big Brother, "houseguests" are living in a house (which is really a set on the CBS lot) where their every word is recorded and their every move is on video (seriously, I think there are even creepy cameras in the bathroom).
The houseguests have no connection to the outside world - no phones, no TV, no email, nothing - just each other for the entire summer, or until you get evicted. The game includes winning competitions, lots of
backstabbing strategizing, and voting one person out of the house each week, until there are 2 people standing and 1 wins $500,000.
I have managed to get my entire family (okay Sister Singer won't join in) enamored with the show, and now it is super fun to watch with the group (albeit hard to hear as everyone always has an opinion).
Since Season 13 of Big Brother premiered last night, and being that I am a big fan of snap-judgement (you're not?), I thought I would share some of my favorites from this year's cast.
First of all, this year Big Brother brought back 3 "dynamic duos" from past seasons, one of which being one of my all-time favorite couples ever to come out of Big Brother!
Jordan and Jeff
Omigah, Jordan is hilarious (not sure it is intentional most of the time, but she cracks me up!) and Jeff is super funny and seems so genuine. They started dating on the show, and are still together, which I think is so sweet. I just wish Jordan could be my best friend, and then my life would be complete.
I'm not a huge fan of the other dynamic duos brought back, so let me point out 2 favorites from this year's newbies.
She has a thick southern accent, and likes beer. Being that I like to pretend I am a Southern Belle (Hat Dad told me there was nothing "belle" about me last night - broke my heart), and Bud Light is my weekend bev of choice, I am thinking Cassie and I are peas in a pod. Also, our names are almost the same, so it's totally meant to be.
I usually root exclusively for the ladies on Big Brother, but this guy made a funny joke last night that made my whole family laugh out loud, so I will be a fan for now. Although, until he made the joke, I thought he a little douchey, to be honest. Hopefully his humor will help cancel out his tool factor.
Do you watch Big Brother? Who were your favorites last night?
