20 days until the premiere!

I hope the rumor about a live move in is true but I really hope it doesn't mean we don't get to meet the cast beforehand.

I think it is Live move in true. It’s because of Covid supposedly. Then there isn’t an episode till Sunday because they need to set up story. Wait! Did I say set up? Am I implying that production needs to make up stuff because the feeds aren’t on yet. LOL!!!!!

The only live move in I remember was on BBOTT.  It was definitely cool, but also kind of slow because they let them in one at a time.

Wasn't last year a live move in? They had to enter and play that maze game where the women had to roll their balls all the way to the end and the men's just goes to the middle of the maze. Then they played that stupid pedestal game where some of them wobbles and Cody could see which one wobbles and wins HOH and the whole season is ruined before the first episode ends. I believe that was all live.

There's also a rumor though that the feeds will be up on night 1, which I believe they were last year as well.

Yea, last season was a live move in and we didn't know (I mean we did but it was not official) the cast until that night. I just really hope they don't make us wait until the live move in to meet the cast. I like spending hours watching the atrocious interviews of all the new people I'm about to hate for 90 days.

I love it when I hate them in the pre-season and then they do something to justify it later in the game - I feel like I'm saving my precious time. That I then waste listening to someone whine about someone else not voting with the house. It sounds bad but it's better than BB17, where the back half of the game was Austin fingerbanging Liz every afternoon in the HoH room while everyone else napped. Almost anything is better than that.

All that to say that I'm supes excited to get my hands on my annual prepaid Amex so I can throw fistfuls of money at CBS that they don't want to take (I'm assuming that Paramount+ works the same way that All Access did - if any Canadians know for sure, lemme know). Shout when the free month codes start showing up. Us thrifty bitches appreciate it.

Hamsterwatch has a tweet that says you can use the code MOVIES before 6/30 for a free month.

Paramount+ royally pissed me off not that long ago and I canceled it. Definitely taking the free month and then canceling again.

Unless another free month comes along. Then I'll take advantage of that too. 😈

So if we sign up for Paramount+, then we automatically get the live feeds on our tv? Or lap top?

They seem happy, so that's good. I do find it weird that she thinks getting to know someone as a friend, and then becoming romantically involved is so unusual.

Remember when, at the start of that abysmal season, I was feeling Older Memphis? Let us pretend, much like when I thought Jack would be my eye candy of BB21, that never happened.

and there’s a case of wine in the fridge. I’m ready to go!

So that covers week one until the first eviction.  I hope you have a delivery order on repeat! 

 

And that Memphis and Christmas engagement news?  Ew.  Any evidence it is real, or just more famewhoring?  The timing of the announcement, right before the next season of Big Brother is due to start, is suspect. 

Or.....are they angling for a reality show of their own, like Miz and Mrs or Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag?  Or did they see all the publicity that Nicole and Victor, Jeff and Jordan, Swaggy and Baileigh etc. got out of being a BB couple?  Maybe they want to be on The Challenge or The Amazing Race as a BB couple with all the attendant routine attention?

I'm getting a whiff of something here, and it ain't authenticity.

It sounds good! I know lots of people hate twists, but personally I enjoy them as long as they aren't horribly unfair. And as long as they don't blindside someone by sending them home on Day One. I've seen that on Survivor, TAR, and BB and it upsets me every time. So cruel. 

Spoiler

All new players and lots of diversity! Yay!

I know I’m catching up on old news, but I am both flabbergasted and not flabbergasted that in the first ten seconds of Nicole’s gender reveal video, she was whining.  Welcome to the rest of your life, Victor.

Not a spoiler, but a quote from the article:

“We’re really leaning into this risk worth versus reward dilemmas,” Meehan says. “The idea is that they’re going to have to make decisions that we’ve never really seen houseguests playing the Big Brother make before.”

You know what THAT means, right...?

Well, they're certainly diverse, I'll give them that.  But there's exactly ONE 40 year old and almost all are in their 20s.   So yeah, I'll still probably hate everyone.  I can't bring myself to read their bio's yet.  It's Friday and I want to start my 3 day weekend off happy!

I must say, I think Memphis and Christmas are perfectly suited to one another.  at least it saves 2 other people from them.

Just watching Taran and Rob on RHAP, laughing about the rumour that Taran's on this season, and how it's not true. So the people who weren't going to watch if he was on can relax. 😁

I can't imagine how bad she must feel watching the show now. If she's watching. And I can't blame her if she isn't. 😕

Just saw the exit interview with Travis on RHAP. And, he seemed like a perfectly nice guy with a gift for gab. He had funny takes on some of the HG which were pretty spot on. Had he been more of a student of the game he might have gone further. I didn’t have a hard yay or nay on Travis in the house but after the interview I actually like him.

I saw it too, and I agree with your assessment. Rob and Taran really liked talking to him. He's a weird mix of goofy/eccentric and very business-like. Definitely intelligent.

Travis looked like the stereotypical bro dude that I despise, but he never really acted like one IMO. He wasn’t the best player, but I don’t think he was stupid, and he seemed to get on well with a lot of different personality types. I also like that he was not afraid to act goofy or look ridiculous. I definitely would have preferred to keep him over Alyssa.

I wish the show would change the format to exclude evictions in the first week. They could make up for it by evicting 2 in the second week, if needed. This would give more time for substantive early strategy talks and, given more time to get to know one another, maybe the first boot wouldn’t be so incidental.

Article about Asah's sister:

https://www.tmz.com/2021/07/16/gigi-hadid-viral-post-nyc-model-nanga-awasum-career-boost-booking-gigs/

Quote

 

The New York City model who went viral for her chic outfit is finding work easier to come by now, thanks to her biggest fan ... Gigi Hadid.

Here's the deal ... Gigi was riding around NYC Thursday when she saw a woman crossing a street, and she snapped a pic and posted it on her Instagram story, saying the woman was her "inspiration of the day."

The woman in the photo is a model herself, Nanga Awasum, who tells TMZ ... Gigi's viral post is quickly helping her book new gigs, including a job with Maybelline and a brand ambassador partnership with Nasty Gal.

Nanga also tells us a pair of major modeling agencies reached out to try to sign her ... and folks on Twitter are petitioning to get her on "Gossip Girl," because she's tweeted about wanting to act on the show.

 

 

Quote

Fun fact: Nanga's sister, Azah Awasum, won't hear the big Gigi news for a while ... she's currently in the "Big Brother" house.

That's so interesting! I've mentioned on the show thread more than once how I'm not a fan of how in the past, on BB and BBCan, all the women felt obligated to enter the house in tiny, skintight cocktail dresses and stilettos so high they could hardly walk. They looked sooo uncomfortable, and I was glad most didn't this season. Except for Azah who wore a little orange dress and sky-high stilettos. 

The difference was that Azah looked wonderful and so comfortable, like she was a model. Now it turns out her sister's a model! If she's anything like Azah, I'll bet she's amazing. And yet Azah doesn't seem at all conceited or "The other women must hate me because I'm so beautiful." I really like her.

That's such a cool story, though as an old-school, privacy-loving weirdo, the idea that someone can just post a pic of someone and make it go viral is still so crazy. But obviously her face wasn't shown, and it worked out great for Nanga! She is a stunner, and looks like a NYC high fashion model. 

I'm really liking Azah so far, and hopefully she doesn't hear about this anytime soon because she stays in the BB house :)

In less horrifying news, I'm enjoying this season so much with Taran and RHAP. Almost everyone on the podcast thinks this could possibly be the best casting ever. Some of the podcasts have been so upbeat and funny. Way more than usual. I'm not complaining!

Nicole Franzel and Victor Arroyo had their baby (Instagram link). E! Online story because Us Weekly can kiss my ass with their shitty website.

The baby is named Victor Arroyo IV but they are calling him Arrow presumably to avoid confusion with his father (I believe they also considered the nickname Four because... well, we should just be impressed that they know basic Roman numerals). Arrow Arroyo. It sounds like a bad soap opera name from the 80s and it's about 50/50 on whether he'll get razzed for it at school. There may only be one other kid in Arrow's grade but still. Congrats to the happy couple, may he get Victor's voice as well as his name.
