We Are Now Live (Sort Of)

At (almost) precisely noon, Big Brother time, CBS unlocked the page where the live feeds will commence in two weeks. Note, and this is very important, THE LIVE FEEDS HAVE NOT YET STARTED!!!! You may think that's stating the obvious, but after spending an hour in the chat some people didn't get the memo. In fact, more than a few people claim there are blogs stating that there are rumors that CBS will turn on the live feeds early (as in today). This is impossible, as there are no people in the house yet! Come on, folks, be a littler smarter.

So what do you get at this point? Not much, to be honest. There are some videos hosted by Jeff, and a chat box. But as time goes on, CBS is likely to add some more content to view in the form of videos and talk shows. Just like Real did in previous years.

Currently, the CBS iPad/iPhone app does not have the feeds. I would bet that there will be an update soon to accomodate that. Instead, you must go to CBS.com on Safari (or whatever browser you use). Once you're logged in, the site looks pretty nice on the iPad.

If you have trouble logging in on your phones or desktop, here's a quick primer:

1. Go to CBS.com

2. Click on the Big Brother banner.

3. Towards the top of the page, there is a "Sign In" box next to "Already a Subscriber?". Click on that.

4. Sign in with Facebook, Twitter, or your email address (depending on what you used when you purchased the feeds).

5. You should automatically end up on the Live Feed page, which currently just shows "Early Bird" on the left hand side of the screen, the chat rooms on the right, and the selection of videos to view at the bottom of the page.

If you need help, don't hesitate to ask me on twitter (bigbrothrgossip).

New BB 14 Commercial Plus Live Feeds Special Start TODAY!!

Please note - there are currently issues trying to order the Early Bird Special - you may need to try later if you get a technical problems message. -indymike

Hey guys! It's been a while, but it feels like just  yesterday that Big Brother 13 ended and here we are ramping up for 14.  Today is the start of the live feed early bird special. The new features will not be in place until a little closer to the season, but the flashback features etc.. will be up and ready to go. This year's early bird special price also includes the mobile feeds instead of having to pay more for that feature. So gett your feeds here at bigbrothergossip.com before they go up in price. You should also probably start notifying your jobs, friends, and family of your absence for the next few months. ;)

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, on to the main reason I am writing this. Last night CBS aired a new BB 14 commercial, and, while the visuals were of course just of last year's cast, they did drop a few hints about the upcoming season. They said more house guests than ever. I've heard there will now be 16 this year. That's quite a lot in comparison with past years. That leaves room for things like lots of double evictions, or twistst that involve more than just two people nominated and more than just one going home at a time.

The second thing the commercial mentioned was that there would be "not one, but FOUR big surprises".  Now I personally think this probably means that at least four of the house guests will be pretty well known former Big Brother contestants, but I look forward to seeing what your opinions and guesses are about it. The end of the commercial also said "Get ready for Big Brother to the Max". I am not sure if that is a hint to the theme or the title of this season or not.

At any rate, who else is ready for the new season? I know I am slowly working up to excited. What do you all think the commercial hints mean? The new season airs July 12th!

Enjoy The Ride

This has got to be one of the slowest starts to a Big Brother season in a very very long time.  Now I don't necessarily say that because it's a bad thing.  But relatively new fans are finding themselves discombobulated over the lack of activity.

With the exception of a couple of Annie flare-ups, there hasn't really been any drama.  Some might call those Annie moments 'dramatic' but not me.  What about the showmance between Brendon and Rachel? That might qualify as drama to some (those in comas perhaps?) but not me.

Let's look at this way.  In the first week of last season's Big Brother 11, there was the huge fight between Jeff and Russell over the word 'technotronics' where Jeff called Russell a 'fag' (sorry Jeff lovers but you can't re-write the past).  Then in a slightly separate incident, Braden called Kevin a 'beaner'. (Reminder to folks: we're not going into the rights and wrongs of anything in these examples.  We're just going over the drama.)  BB10 started out kinda tame but we did witness April and Ollie swappin' spit on the first night of the live feeds.  The BB10 house was also definitively divided into two groups with the whole 'you can't talk to the other side' mentality.  And that mentality was pretty damned annoying let me tell ya!

Big Brother 9 did not start out tame at all.  When the feeds came on, we were treated to a full blown fight between Parker and Jen.  He was calling her a selfish bitch and we found out the Jen/Ryan secret relationship twist had already been discovered.  Sharon and Jacob had already been evicted when the feeds came on as well.  And then the next night, Neil voluntarily left the house and Sharon was brought back in as Josh's partner.  Later that night Jen and Ryan had sex in the downstairs bathroom.  And then the third night brought us Natalie giving oral pleasure to Matty (ick). The sixth night of the feeds had a huge fight between almost everybody with Amanda going around accusing Alex of trying to touch her crotch while she slept and Chelsia telling Amanda she should hang herself.

I don't mind that this season of Big Brother is starting out slow.  I like how I'm able to kinda get to know these folks before I'm forced into immediately liking or disliking them.  When folks bust onto the feeds with fighting and name-calling, you find yourself unconsciously making the decision to either hate or love them.  And it can take some time before you're able to get past those first impressions.

So I'm fine with Annie causing some not too dramatic waves.  I don't mind Brendon and Rachel having their fauxmance or watching The Brigade planning the game for their ultimate win.  It's just going to make it that much sweeter when The Brigade falls apart or when Brendon and Rachel break up.  Or when Kristen and Britney get into it.  Or when Enzo goes up on the block.  Or when Andrew is confronted for his oddball personality.  And then there's still the whole saboteur twist that needs to be unfolded.

Just give it time folks and enjoy the ride!
