I am sick..

of waiting.

Hi, I'm Barb, and I'm impatient.  See more of my lack of patience throughout this Season here. :)

The new house decor is killin' me.  I've been wanting to figure out the funeral parlor deal, but I just can't.  I really hope it's not the obvious--a shrine for evicted HG's.  

The limited space--less rooms, less personal and relaxed games to play--might force HG's to use any new tactic to communicate.  Big Brother Sign Language.. Hell yea!

Things I do NOT want to see this Season:

1) Someone throwing their mic into the pool and giving up

2) Someone lying about their age--so pointless

3) A showmance--real or not (Unattached sex is A-OK though!)

Things I really really want to see this Season:

1) Nudity

2) Julie Chen in her signature body glitter

3) Julie Chen nude.. wait what?

What's your list?



Hello And Welcome To Big Brother Gossip!  

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 (which later became ) 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 – 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 - 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 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  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!).


Big Brother 12 House Details Revealed.

Happy Fathers Day everyone!

Big Brother had the media day last week and they seem to give a wink and a nod to the folks and let them leak out details of what the house looks like.

One of those folks usually posts in very fine details what he/she has seen inside the house and it happened again this year (link to comment on BigBrotherDish) .  So here is some of what they revealed.  Nothing 'shocking' of course - it is after all the same house as it has been since season 6 - but some folks do enjoy knowing the theme.  There is at least one detail that seems a bit odd and perhaps might bring a new twist to the game - we'll see (read on!)

Allison had already hinted that the theme this year was going to be a summer camp/beach theme and indeed it sounds like it is very heavy on the "beach" feel.

The backyard has lost the pool table and a foosball table is there in its place - which seems to me to NOT be a good thing as it is a much less relaxing game and I doubt we will see much plotting over a game of foosball whereas TONS of scheming has gone on around the pool table the last couple of years.  Also in the backyard is a volleyball net - again - a fun game as a group - but not something that lends itself to two people playing leisurely.

Inside at the kitchen the look is that of a big cabin.  Without seeing it - it brings to mind season 9 when the theme was a bit “wintery” since it was on during the writer's strike.

We have a fish tank again - in its usual location between the kitchen and living room filled with tropical fish.

In the living room as was reported last week - there is a big screen with crashing waves near the couches.  This area keeps with the beach theme.

The first floor bedrooms have apparently gone through the biggest remodel.  There are now only two instead of three.  Without having seen it I am guessing that what was originally the "Gold" (hidden) bedroom in season six has changed in size and the other two have been combined (since the wall between those two was thin and had no cameras).  Not sure I like this either as it makes one less place for the HGs to sneak away to and scheme.

Theme in the smaller bedroom is a beach and in the larger is a cabin complete with bunk beds which we haven't seen since the first season of Big Brother.

Upstairs sounds perhaps like a boardwalk theme - with a gazebo where the chess board / couch has been in the most recent seasons.  The boardwalk theme is even stronger in the HoH room where it sounds like it is set up like a Fun House you might see while visiting a seaside resort.  Included in the HoH room are wacky mirrors, a fortune teller's booth and a spider is back in this room (spiders were in the BB8 hose) in a large tank - apparently replacing the fish tank that was our Fish Cam for season 11.

The downstairs bathroom apparently has an 'under the sea' feeling with shells for sinks, and blue lava lamps casting a blue glow along with metallic walls that probably are intended to reflect the light around a bit (but my guess is we won't notice that effect with the bright lighting needed for the cameras).

The room that I think may indicate a twist (or I may be completely wrong about) is the original 'workout' room which was a 'spa' room and most recently a ‘recycle’ room with the bikes and a big couch/bed in it. 

Described as looking like a "funeral parlor,” when visited by the media folks the room contained an open casket and lots of flowers.  What the heck can be read into that I don't know.  There was also an empty picture frame which said 'rest in peace' in the room - that makes me think of evicted HGs but I really can't see how having there picture in there or putting them in a casket would play into the game.  Also with the rest of house having a fun beach/summer camp theme - the funeral feeling just seems to be a real downer.

And there you have it - what do ya think?  I have three main questions after hearing about the new house details.

Will the foosball table be better or worse for 'game play' in the house.

What will the effect of two bedrooms be over three (granted - for BB1-5 there were only two main bedrooms)?

What the heck is going on with a funeral themed room?

Let me know what you think!

The new Big Brother commercial and CBS site - any secrets revealed?

Hi all - two new things Big Brother related came about on Wednesday.  CBS modified its official page to start getting it ready for the start of Big Brother 12 and they also put out a very brief new commercial that has people speculating like crazy.

First the website.  No BIG revelation there except maybe that there are thirteen little head and shoulder cartoons (seen at the left).  So does that mean there will be thirteen HGs this season?  Maybe.  Allison Grodner said last week in an interview that there would probably be 12-14.  Then again the thirteen images may simply be a placeholder for 12 or 14 pictures to be added in a week or so.

Then there is the commercial.  What has some people chattering is the fact that we see people in it and there are several that we don't know.  Watch for yourself thanks to long time Big Brother fan quirkydude:

So what do I get from that?  Actually not much, sorry!  I did take some screen caps to attempt to get a better look at the mystery people but my guess is that they are simply models hired by the producers for the commercial (thus the blurryness).

Looking at those screen caps - I don't see anyone I recognize - and to me the pool looks bigger than the backyard pool so I even wonder if the video was shot in the house.

What do you think?  Was it all a ploy to get the die-hards chattering?  Was it simply an new ad where they decided to get some new footage rather than old shots?  Or, could these really be potential house guests playing together more than three weeks before the show begins?

22 days the the start of Big Brother 12!
