One of the most intriguing, and controversial, Big Brother contestants I have ever seen is Benedict Garrett from this year's UK edition. A former educator turned porn star, Benedict "shocked" a number of fellow housemates and a portion of the public with his open discussions on masturbation. With all of the big personalities given the boot in the early weeks (sound familiar?), Garrett was the third evictee of the season. Big Brother's loss is our gain, though, as he was open to any question perused by the lovely Ash or myself.
After our time with Benedict was concluded, our very own Mike joined us to talk about the various rumors that have been floating around the US edition of Big Brother, which commences on July 12. We talk about the "mentors" rumors, BB6/7 Janelle's strange tweets, and today's unveiling of the house.
This was quite the episode, and should be entertaining to fans of both the UK and US editions of the show.
Once again, this is also a great time to remind everybody that due to a change in providers you will have to resubscribe to continue to automatically receive each episode. If you listen via Stitcher(http://www.stitcher.com/listen.php?fid=16875) or Scott's Android/iPhone app for all of his podcasts (The Ledge), no changes are necessary. Since Apple doesn't allow you to delete a podcast, though, the old version is technically still in the iTunes store. That is a dead link, so you now have to subscribe to The Big Brother Gossip Show (mp3) at this link -http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/big-brother-gossip-mp3/id502746488 . If you don't want to go the iTunes route, you can also directly subscribe to the new show's feed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/bigbrothergossip, or directly download it by clicking
I know this is confusing, but at least these changes are happening now instead of in the middle of next season! Special thanks to Mike, Ash and especially Benedict for their help on this episode, and please let me know what you think of this special broadcast!
