Today was the day that we finally laid our lovely little eyes on the new litter of hamsters (or houseguests) that will make up our summer of guilty pleasure called Big Brother 12. Some folks on Twitter compared today to Christmas. I don't know about all that. For me, it's better than Christmas!
As we really don't know these folks much better than our ex's boss' daughter-in-law married to the beekeeper a few towns over, let me provide you my completely unbiased opinions based on a snap judgment of their bios at the CBS web site. If you'd like to follow along and compare your snap judgments with mine, you can check out their bios right here.
Oh Andrew. He does try a bit too hard with his bio but I have to give him some credit for not being plain. Andrew seems like he could be a fun guy to be around but seems to be a little bit too much full of himself. But hey, you kinda have to to be on Big Brother right? He is a practicing Orthodox Jew so I'm interested in seeing how far he goes in the game. I think just because of that he won't last very long. I'm not saying it's fair but I'm just sayin'.
It's also interesting that he lists both his favorite and least favorite players of Big Brother as being from BB5 (Marvin and Holly respectively). Yet he says he thinks the perfect strategy of winning is to combine Dr. Will, Kaysar, Chicken George, and Russell (from Survivor). Did he just really love BB5 that much? Marvin was a great guy and Holly was annoying but I could think of many more hamsters that a person would list as favorite and least favorite. I am interested in seeing how he'll do as a single father though and how being away from his child (children?) will affect him.
I don't really know what to think about Annie. She seems to have a rather brash personality and it sounds like she doesn't give two craps what others think about her. That's all fine and good in real life but that doesn't always play out too well in the Big Brother house.
For some reason, I think of Ivette (BB6) when I read her profile. And no, it has nothing to do with her being bisexual. When asked for three adjectives to describe herself, she provides "Outgoing, over dramatic and loyal." Unlike Ivette, she doesn't seem to have any drive. Her life's motto is, "When life give you lemons... say f*** the lemons and bail." What a great philosophy to have! *rolls eyes* OK chick who likes Dick (BB8) and is afraid of getting old. Whatever!
Brendon sounds as boring as... well I can't think of anything that boring yet. So I made his picture really small instead. Yeah, he may be smart and even kinda hunky-looking but he may as well have said that he likes horse-riding and long walks on the beach. The only interesting 'BB thing' about him is that he plans on getting the girls to like him and then turn them against each other. He might have a problem with that if he's as boring in real life as his bio is.
This next hamster does actually list that she likes taking walks - but with her dog. Britney is all set to be the buxom blonde of BB12. She's young, perky, in sales, and has big boobs. Britney also likes arguing so much she listed it as one of her favorite activities (I wonder what her dog thinks about that) and listed one of her adjectives as argumentative. Yet she considers herself a bit of a comic. I don't know about this one folks! I think we're either going to love her or hate her! But I can't wait to watch her carry out her strategy of being nice. LOL!
Enzo seems interesting in a train wreck kinda way. His favorite hamster is the knife-wielding Justin from BB2. Now I don't know if it's because he's from the same town as Justin or if he knows Justin in real life or if he gets off on knife-play or if he's just an idiot. The idiot part might very well be true since he listed his strategy for winning Big Brother as 'winning'. Dude, that's not a strategy. That's an end result. Perhaps he's just trying to make Justin look smart. Who knows?
He does describe himself as likeable and obnoxious. Enzo doesn't like rats, already considers himself a celebrity, and is most proud of receiving his real estate license. I don't know about you but I foresee him being most proud of his tan in the near future.
Ah Hayden. Our young moppy-headed hunk of the season. Our easy breezy beautiful cover boy of the season. Our fun-loving and down-to-earth hunk of manly man of the season. OK, I'm embarrassing myself.
Let's just say I already think he's the bee's knees and I definitely will not mind watching him catch those golden rays of sun as they shine down on his oh-so-toned body. Ahem. Sorry again.
On to his bio already HamsterDame! He considers himself outgoing, athletic, and charming and loves sports. Hayden's proudest accomplishment to date is being a part of the Arizona State University's baseball team. He's afraid to fly, dislikes messy people, and is a country boy.
Yes his bio might be a little bit 'youthful' but I'm not arguing. He is cute and I just hope he has something to bring to the table other than looks so that he sticks around for awhile.
So those are my thoughts on the first six hamsters. I'm sure I will be amazingly wrong on at least more than one (haha!) but that's why they're called snap judgments! How do you feel about this group of six? Just click on that little 'Post a Comment' link below and type away!
Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow morning. You won't want to miss it!
