Happy Big Brother 12 Premiere Day!

It's that time of year that all of us Big Brother fanatics know and love! Tonight is the premiere of Big Brother 12!

I hope you stocked up on frozen pizzas for the family, finished spring cleaning, and bought the pets some extra food.  Did you already warn your family and friends about not bothering you during the show?  Do you have all of your favorite BB12 sites bookmarked and ready to go?  Psst, I hope you've bookmarked Big Brother Gossip by the way.

Big Brother begins tonight on CBS at 8:00 PM ET/7:00 PM ET and then, after the show finishes airing on the west coast, the live feeds will start.  If the first night of live feeds are like most previous seasons, they'll have booze and be acting a little crazy because they'll be aware that we are actually watching them.

Speaking of watching them, how we watch them will be very different this season.  Instead of watching them using RealPlayer, we will be watching them from within a web browser.  Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari - pick your poison.  I prefer Chrome myself (and if you use Chrome, you can pin the live feeds to the top of the screen in their own tab using this handy extension called DeskPins).

The website you'll be using to watch the live feeds themselves are: http://superpass.real.com/big-brother/live-feeds.  So be sure to bookmark it!  And yes, you'll still need to sign up through Real Networks to watch the feeds.  Real Networks began broadcasting this season's FOTH (if you don't know what that is then Google it) last night and even broadcast a video chat with Chelsea and Missy.  It was obvious they were still working on getting things straightened out then but they were working on things late into the night and I hope the kinks get taken care of before tonight.

I will be creating a Fafarazzi group so that all of us can compete against each other again this season.  If you're new to Fafarazzi, you'll need to set up an account over there (it's free) and then pick your team here.  For those of you interested in chatting during the show tonight, you can do so either in the built-in chat room here (at the bottom right of the page in the bar) or at the old Silly Hamsters chat room located right here.  (I'll be in the old chat room tonight.)

Now that you're all set up all that's left to do is wait.  Study up on who's who over at the CBS Big Brother site so that you're familiar with the fresh faces tonight.  And why not take a dip in the pool here by posting a comment telling us how excited (or not?) you are about the new season and new hamsters?  Tell everybody what you're looking forward to and share your thoughts with your fellow campers.

Where my gays at? BB12 Edition.

So, we're used to the stereotypical homosexual in the house.  What about this year?  I know the bowtie is on the "colorful side", but seriously, is Ragan my gay or am I doomed to live without!? 

Whereas I'm excited to see a hot bisexual chick completely fail at using her sexuality for any competitive gain, I need my gay drama most recently fulfilled by Kevin Campbell of BB11.  I miss that scarf-wearing little rascal.

P.S. Hayden's hipster mop top needs to go, or I can't enjoy him.  But I'll toooooooootally watch him sunbathe with Dame. 

UPDATE:

So he's so gay, thanks commenter, my suspicions (and lack of attention to detail) was at least correct. 

Here's why I think he's even awesomer.  Ragan is too successful and media connected to play the real game.  He has a podcast which airs on Sirius Satellite called Fox and the City and a blog found here http://www.raganfox.com/ He's my pick for shenanigan city. hmmm.

Evel Dick says Big Brother is still casting.

Thanks to HamsterDame's tweet  - I saw a re-post from Evel Dick's Myspace Page over on"Big Brother Game" (you following me?).  Dick (BB8) writes about a lot of stuff - the part I found interesting was his comment that Big Brother is still looking to cast at least one person.

Read on but be forewarned - Dick still has a potty mouth! ;)

 

Final thoughts on casting for this season…

I was very disappointed to hear that BB put out a last minute and I mean LAST FUCKING SECOND, call for cast members, I think today…

This means someone they wanted on the show was either vetoed by the upper suits, or someone or someone’s really fucked up right at the end (dumb mother fuckers) but it means that a week before they are to be sequestered that some random last minute choices will be made. I hate that. Not only because it took me 3 fucking years to get on the god damn show and these jerk off’s will get the same opportunity I worked so hard to get in 155 weeks less time, but because these choices are typically clueless about the show, period. They will be stumbling and bumbling around the internet and will be checking sites that promise to make you a reality star and end up going just because it is within walking distance of their job at the gym or because they are a toilet paper changing engineer in the building already, so between the fat guy they need to spray half a can of Lysol because the smell of his shit is creeping out of the toilet and the receptionist in the first office past out due to being overwhelmed by shit smell and the drunk guy that pissed all over the floor, they will go and see if they can get a free summer vacation on tv….

UUUuuuuuuughhhhh! So much goes into the entire process, I find it hard to believe they can find anyone worth a shit in a week, but they do it almost every year. I hear they are looking for a tattooed guy with fucked up hair and a shitty attitude…. where do they come up with this shit?

 

Same of Dick eh?  I hated/loved him on the show.  He was the best for telling us what was on his mind.

So what do ya think?  I think he has a point - it always sucks when you hear how many people are 'cast' for the show and have never even heard of it - or know how it is played - however there have also been some pretty decent players that figure it out as they go along and do really well.

Thanks to HamsterDame for catching the post by Big Brother Game and thanks to Dick for still taking the time to fill us in on whats up in the Big Brother world!

and now shameless plug time.... don't forget you can sign up now for the live feeds.  The "Early Bird" special is running now through July 7th and allows you to sign up for the entire season of the feeds for one low cost of $29.99.  That is the best deal running out there and all the Big Brother sites have the same deal.  So pick your FAVORITE site (me me!  pick me!) and click on the links to get your live feeds for the season.  Starting July 8th the only prices available will be $14.99 a month or $39.99 for 3 months - so you save a minimum of $10 by signing up now!  Every sign up is appreciated!

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 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 ilovereality@gmail.com  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!).
