BB in the Media: Outside the Fishbowl

Recommended Posts

Whaaat? No discussion of Andy’s tweet today? I know it’s a goof but still...

 

Now I am NO fan of Herren’s but I’m quite impressed by how much he “commits,” as they say in the show biz. Maybe he really could have a future playing weasels in film and TV projects.

There's so much going on that I have no idea about two of the things you mentioned.

  Last night Swaggy was doing an IG Live where he claimed that Bayleigh was at Whole Foods and would be home soon (Bayleigh, of course, never showed up because she's supposed to be in sequester). There's been a small rash of memes that Bayleigh has been stuck inside the store for the past day. 

Brett versus Rockstar is listed above on the previous page. (Oh, she went for Jackson, too. Hee!)

Blame Nicole is a new fun meme where she's been responsible for everything shitty that's ever happened in Big Brother (the Photoshop of her face in the Helen Got Pushed comp is amazing) and has been expanded to include any conspiracy theory or crappy thing happening anywhere in the world. BB15's Elissa has been going ham on the Tweeter about Nicole which helped to kick it all off. 

Oh also? Someone's unearthed a bunch of Big Brother fan fiction on Wattpad. Including one where Brett reveals his crush on the reader. And Andy's been sprinkling videos out throughout the day. It's been a wild ride. 

Kathy in the caramel was a trick question. She's gonna be stuck in there so long, it's going to crystallize and turn into amber and they're going to extract DNA from it in 1000 years to create Jurassic Park. She's never getting out of there.

Poor Andy. He is so thirsty. Imagine being a huge BB fan, winning BB, thinking you are set for life only to realize your season was so fucking repugnant no one ever wants to acknowledge its existence. He can live on in the twitter world, but that’s it. 

Still a better season than BB9, though.

For the record, it was Bayleigh's neverending trip to Whole Foods and Brett that I hadn't heard about. How did I miss the Brett thing earlier?

I think I'm dumb. Or maybe just happy.

Think I'm just happy.

This may be an unpopular opinion but I'm not all that excited to see Nicole A back. She won one competition last season, which basically was a pity-win. She'd be an easy goat to drag along again, but if she doesn't DO anything again this season while more compelling people get evicted, I'm going to...be mad about it on the internet.

But if they decide to scare her with the clowns again, I'd be okay with that.

Bayleigh, meh. Kaycee, meh. 

I'm glad to see David back, but wish Ovi was coming back, too. I'd love to see what he, as an incredibly enthusiastic superfan, could do. I would have liked to see Tommy back without Christie.

I would have enjoyed seeing Brett, but he's too busy spending time with his BFF Jackson. They're...weirdly close. I was mindlessly scrolling through Jackson's IG the other day, and noticed that when they were in Vegas together for Jackson's birthday, they shared swim trunks (1st and 3rd photos). Is that a thing guys do? I don't know why, but it struck me so weird.

Now, @Callaphera, I know we don't know each other very well, but if you keep on peppering the thread with hilarious new names for this season I am liable to fall in love. 😍

I'll be the cheese that stands alone in not really liking Kaysar.

I don't find him hateful by any means but he's just so blaaaaaaaah and was weirdly smug about his strategic abilities, which was funny coming from Mr. Revolving Door Evictions.

Nothing wrong with disliking popular players.  I mostly dislike popular players from Survivor (Sandra, Parvati, Tyson, Boston Rob) and like the players people don't like (Coach, Phillip, Angelina).  For the most part I tend to like the popular people on BB and hate the people that everyone hates.

True, but that might be fun in and of itself, trying to see her wheel and deal and be so bad at it. 🙂

I didn't watch the whole thing, but the video they linked to Tyler and Angela's house...OK, I'm jealous.  It's a little bright and modern for me, but it's still lovely, and they have a great pool.

It's gorgeous! They actually seem like a very mature and functional couple. Actually, several of the couples in the clip do. 

I find it hilarious that BB, for all its craziness, has produced so many long term couples, while all the various dating shows haven't produced... any? I don't actually know because I hate dating shows generally and avoid them like the plague, but my sense is that almost no long term couples result from them, despite this being the whole point of the shows.

It's basically the same thing as couples who got together in college and remain together, although probably even better odds, since they're typically older than college students (well, less so in the Grodner years, and you'll find that the younger couples are often the less likely ones to stick together). Spending 24/7 with someone for months and still wanting to be with them is huge. Those BS dating shows are not about that all.

For me there's a giant black cloud hanging over this season which is probably a hangover from the weird, unfinished feeling I was left with when BBCan was suddenly, shockingly stopped midseason.

Knowing that this could happen to this season of BB means I'm going to watch the whole thing waiting for the other shoe to drop. All the glitches and casting issues so far aren't making me any more confident.

I mean, they may say that they'll lose interest but let's be real: online Big Brother fans are crack addicts looking for their summer fix and will come running the second the show starts. Sometimes I'm jealous of the broadcast-only fanbase (I kinda hate the name "casuals") - they show up three times a week and they're good. Meanwhile I'm booking appointments and phone calls to happen when the feeds should be down for Veto comps.

Ordinarily I’d agree - but this year, not so much.  Everybody has gotten so coronavirus-acclimatized to everything good and fun being cancelled that it’s become a given; one assumes cancellation unless proven otherwise, and that includes BB.  Personally, I’m not believing in this season being “real” (i.e., sustainable) until we’re at least three weeks deep into the live feeds without the show’s ticket getting punched.

I never saw an episode the last BBCan (The last full season I saw was when Kevin Martin won, fu copyright laws!) but from what I read about the last season it sounded like it was going to be a train wreck.  Two people kicked, didn't one quit?  It sounded glorious.

It had the potential to be glorious, that's for sure. It was such a blow to the cast and audience when they gathered the hamsters up and broke the awful news to them, first of the pandemic, and second, that their game was over. I really, really don't want to go through this again this season with BB. It's like being in the middle of a fascinating movie which just stops halfway through and you're told to leave the theatre. 

I guess it'll make for great suspense at least.

To be honest I'm not optimistic at the moment that we will even get a season, at least the 85 days they are saying. Maybe they make it OTT or something. Covid is having a second wave at the moment and I'm feeling there will be business lockdowns soon. They surely don't want to experience what happened with BBCan...

Not to get anyone's hope up or anything but today on Entertainment Tonight, there was supposed to be a "Meet the Houseguests" segment that's now been changed in the guides to be something to do with Big Brother. Maybe a house tour? Maybe it's just Julie pointing and laughing at us? Who knows at this point.

I prefer the idea of a live move in plus they can do another round or two of testing. At this point anyone that was using social media might have gotten their phones taken away for the official sequester week. Wonder if they were told if they are in the initial cast list or alternate or if they all got told they aren’t official yet.

Also wondering if anyone thought to film themselves during quarantine while they had phone access and go on twitter and Reddit to read all the rumors!

I actually love the idea of the reveal happening live. It's quite exciting! I'm really hoping there's one or two surprises and also that Keesha, Memphis, and Kaysar are all on.

Also though, I wish they'd give us a house tour to tide us over.

I'm kinda pumped for a live reveal. I mean, we have a pretty good idea of who might be part of the cast but there could still be some curve balls and it's kinda nice to not know everything before the game starts. It feels like old single digits Big Brother, before I was heavily into the online fandom and watching the feeds through RealPlayer.

During Paul's second season, I made a quick trip to Las Vegas to the Hard Rock to see my newly favorite band for the first time, who were headlining the first night of a psychedelic music festival. At one point, I thought I saw Paul a few feet away at the bar. There was a guy who looked exactly like him and of course, it was totally the kind of event I could see him attending. Then I remembered Big Brother was in real time and he was still in the house, and all was right in my world again!

Man, I NEED my summer crack more than anything. Between my Mom's death last fall, major health problems this year, getting furloughed (thankfully, I was brought back a month later), and legal attacks over the trust of my mom's predeceased partner from her bitch daughters with whom I'm now co-trustees, and going through the pandemic solo, I am SO fucking ready for 24/7 BB crack fixes. I'm already getting so many needed laughs from the likes of Nashville, Peachmangosteen, and Callaphera, et al., and have rabid anticipation for another season of hysterical live feed reports!

Oddly enough I had a similar Paul experience.  Mine happened between seasons 18 and 19, actually about a week before 19 came on the air.  I was at a pro wrestling show in Massachusetts and me and my buddy saw this guy who we both swore was Paul.  He even had a tacky Hawaiian shirt on.  However, upon getting a better look at the guy we both realized it was not him.  Though I remember thinking, "I wonder what happened to Paul."  Sadly enough we found out a week later.

Seeing your post makes me wonder if there is some sort of secret Paul clone army out there.  It would explain why Paul was half way decent on his first season and a total asshole during his second.

By the way, I saw this earlier and fucking howled. Like, I was legit crying while doing loon calls and the husband had to come and check on me. The mental images were just amazing.

So Britney Haynes did a Cameo for someone I don't know when but it showed up on r/BigBrother today. Happy 18th birthday to whoever was the recipient. And after the initial well wishes, Britney launches into her favourite Big Brother story which, of course, is Kathy in the caramel (Youtube video should start at 57 seconds in, which is the comp in question although the entire video is worth a watch). But it turns out it gets better. Because there's more that happened after the comp was done when they all - well, all but one of them - went back into the house to clean off. 

The Conclusion and Part Two of Kathy versus the caramel in which the caramel wins againhere

ETA: I added the reddit link to make it a little more... social media-ish? Plus the Cameo is kinda like an IG video so I figured this could kinda bend the definition in an attempt to lessen the blow of having to wait until Wednesday to get the official cast list.

Lately there's been 2 ep premieres, so 1 on Wednesday and 1 on Thursday, and we get the live feeds after the 2nd ep airs on Thursday. Since we don't even get a 2nd ep until a week after the premiere, I'm assuming we won't get feeds until then. We usually miss the first week of feeds normally as well, so it just makes sense. I really hope they put feeds up that first night though.

OMG, both of those clips were hilarious. Too bad that second round of Kathy in the caramel was never shown. I might have been tempted to leave her there. 

And Britney...lol. "Oh, you're going to take your time on this one? Cause this isn't a race or anything"

I could *feel* the impatience of all the other contestants in that clip. So painful lol.
