Sometimes you should just let it be over...(and a small introduction)

Hey BB people and fellow bloggers!  My name is Ash and this will be my first year blogging here at Big Brother Gossip.  I am really excited and cannot wait for the new season.  I also look forward to being a part of the team and reading everyone elses opinions.  I am a long time BB fan and am not shy about how I feel about the contestants and the show, but it's all in good fun.  That being said, I will start my first entry.

Every once in a while I see videos, posts, or interviews with past BB guests that strike enough of a chord with me that I end up thinking about what I would say/write about the behavior that was displayed.  Today I saw one of those things.  While browsing my twitter I ran across a tweet talking about the videos of the big brother panel over here: http://networkedblogs.com/j8HCy , so I decided to go watch.  I am one of those die hard BB fans that still gets a kick out of seeing what the past house guests are like when faced with questions in real life.....well...

If you have not watched the videos, or don't go watch them at the above posted link, I will summarize.  What it basically is, is a handful of past BB contestants (Chima, Michele, Lydia, Matt, Ragan, Evel Dick, Layne, Hayden, and last but not least, Brenchal) talking about how they felt about production, twists, edits, and life after Big Brother.  My hope whenever I watch a season like 11 where I really didn't like anyone is that they will come out of the house, watch the show, and be mortified by their behavior.  Apparently this is not the case with the panelists from said season.  They spent most of the time allotted talking about how they were wronged, it was editing's fault, the season was handed to Jeff and Jordan (which I do kind of agree with), and they were winning when production intervened.  THE LIVE FEEDS ARE NOT REAL REALITY, THEY MADE US LOOK BAD!..pfftt...All I can really say about that is that these guys were cast as high school cliques, and it doesn't look like they have advanced very far past high school since.  With the exception of Lydia, who I do actually like as a person (from what I have seen) outside the house, but hated as a contestant, I really feel like most of the BB11 crew were just trying to justify not playing the game, acting like spoiled children, and in general just being big dumb pains in the ass by blaming it on their "edits".  EARTH TO CHIMA! Part of playing Big Brother is about getting US the fans to like you.  Even if BB production DOES interfere and get Jessie's meathead behind booted because America hates him, that is PART of the game.  The game rules don't say "expect these rules written here to be followed and we will not ever throw a twist to mess with your game play to get the money".  The motto says "expect the unexpected".  I personally couldn't stand Jeff and Jordan.  I don't like watching people float along and get things handed to them with no play involved, and I was sickened by America's superficial love for them when really, mentally and game play wise, they were nothing special, BUT, I do understand why Jeff was given the Coup D'etat.  If you can't play the game (which personally I didn't see chima playing) and/or still have anyone like you or at least be entertained by watching you, there is a decent chance the odds are going to flip out of your favor.  That's just a given. Also, if the winners are so fixed, how exactly is it that we ended up with Ratty Natalie in second?!  Chima also went on and on about how the haters never speak to her face, that it's always online behind a keyboard and that if it were real life the people wouldn't have anything to say.  In some cases I am sure that is true.  On the other hand, personally, if I had a chance to meet or talk with Chima or Jessie, or any of the other contestants along the line that annoyed me so greatly,unless they were simultaneously entertaining as hell (which she wasn't), I would most likely decline.  Not because I am scared to tell anyone what I think, but because I just don't really care to have a conversation with those people.  I changed my live feed camera off when you were on for a reason.

 

On the other/more enjoyable side of the panel, I was happy to see Ragan, Matt, and Kristen there, and even rather enjoyed Rachel and Brendan to be perfectly honest.  At least they are still the same people they proclaimed to be, are not making excuses, but rather taking credit for the mistakes they themselves made, and they all still have a great sense of humor about the whole thing.  Dick was just Dick as he always is, and I almost always enjoy hearing his humorous commentary.  These guys all mostly cracked jokes, made fun of themselves, and admitted to making mistakes, as any decent sport would do.  As I could have predicted, Hayden and Layne said a total of 4 sentences the whole time I believe, and I chalk this up to layne almost always being quiet and observing, and Hayden still trying to figure out how the game is played and not understanding enough about it to have an opinion, or maybe his lovely overbearing mother told him he couldn't talk if they didn't pay enough...who knows.  I know I sure am looking forward to the next all stars!  Thanks to http://twitter.com/#!/notmakefriends  for posting the videos.  I got much amusement out of them.

Also, remember to sign up for your live feeds on Friday everyone! I am SO excited to see what BB13 will have to offer!

More Big Brother News!

Hi everyone!!

Real decided today to push the Early Bird Special back to Friday, June 17th so check back then when the links and code will be available.  At that point you will be able to order the live feeds for the flat rate of $29.99 for the entie season.

They have also now formerly announced that there will be an Android App and a way for users of iPhones / iPads to watch the live feeds (not an app - some other solution) .  Please know that there will be a small additional fee to watch the feeds on mobile devices since they have to develope special technology to stream to them in high quality - if you are like me it will be worth the little extra.  I'll post more on that as we get closer to July 7th!

Real has also announced that there will be some more former HGs helping this season by hosting live shows or providing exclusive content.

Danielle from BB8 will be hosting a pre-season show with Ragan from BB12 - Ragan will also be hosting a weekly show every Wednesday that you can tune in  to if you subscribe to the live feeds via Superpass.  There is also another yet to be revealed former HG that will be hosting a show and of course Chelsea is back again - although she never has really left Real.com.

I am posting this to both ilovereality.com and bigbrothergossip.com  - normally both sites have a lot of different content - but right now I'd be silly to re-write this just so it reads differently - don't you agree??  :)
