Welcome to Big Brother Gossip!
With the HGs slated to move in the house in about two weeks for Big Brother 12 and the feeds set to begin not much after that, I wanted to chime in and greet the new faces and introduce myself to you.
First off, my name is "Mike" although I have always gone by nicknames on the various Big Brother sites I have been involved with.
I’ve been a fan of Big Brother since the first season where I was the original moderator on BigBrotherFanClub.com (which later became TVClubHouse.com ) when the owners asked me to help run the site. That is where I got my first Big Brother related nickname, "Ryn" which was on a whim although it was close to my oldest son's name Ryan.
Before Big Brother Four I decided to start my own reality site as well and called it ilovereality.com – the site is still around and while I have stopped following EVERY reality show I still faithfully follow Big Brother on the site with daily live feed updates and recaps.
For Big Brother 7-10 I also wrote a blog for REAL called BigBrothersKeeper.com - alas that site was closed by Real after Season 10 :(
For some strange reason between Big Brother Eight and Nine I decided that working on three sites/blogs wasn’t enough and asked some friends to help me with yet another site and that is the site you are on now. Here I decided to post with a different nickname, "IndyMike," which is related to my location (Indiana). Big Brother Gossip is now entering its third season (seems like more!) and I am very excited. An added bonus was being contacted by Lori aka “HamsterDame,” who I have known since we both called TVClubHouse our main hang out, and asking if we had room for her here @ BigBrother Gossip – as if my answer would be anything but YES! Her former home SillyHamsters.com is still there but the updates have stopped after many many seasons.
Now with my mini bio mostly complete, why do I watch Big Brother and what makes this site different?
I seldom care who wins Big Brother – I usually seem to root for the under-dog just because its more fun to watch someone beat the odd than roll over the competition every week. I can be critical of house guests but I also know they are real people and don’t hold things against them outside the house (I follow most HGs on twitter and wish them all all the success in the world!). I don’t stop watching the feeds when my ‘favorite’ is eliminated – there always seems to be a good reason to tune in even if it is to roll my eyes.
If you are that type of fan, this site is for you – if you can call an HG stupid and know that it isn’t fighting words with your fellow fans you will do alright here. If you feel the need to get personal with someone who doesn’t agree with your opinions, or can’t stand someone bad-mouthing your favorite you might want to move along to one of the MANY other Big Brother sites out there!
I think that is more than enough, I hope you enjoy your stay and feel free to comment! I read everyone and can also be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would prefer that.
Finally if you missed Scott and Lori's intro you can get to them here- Scotts:"Hello From Scott" HamsterDame's: "Hello Everybody" (OOps - here is Lil's short one too "Hello Everyone!" keep an eye out for any other authors saying hello soon too!).
