Scott's Initial Impressions - Aaryn

The day started just like every other day this week. Shit, shower, coffee, and dozens and dozens of godawful “X days until Big Brother” tweets. Please, my friends, don’t waste my bandwidth with this garbage.

Today, though, is a big day as we can finally see who is going amuse, arouse, and annoy us for the next 100 days. The annoyance factor is already in full throttle, as Julie Chen actually made a mistake in an interview and said the cast videos would be available at 9 am. When they weren’t up at that time, the bb15 hashtag went berserk. OMG OMG, what are we going to do? Wait until noon, pacific time, which is the part of the day that all other press releases stated it would happen.

Unfortunately for me, at that time I had other commitments that took me away from taking a peak at these folks. Now that it’s almost bedtime, I finally get a bit of time to make some initial impressions. I primarily used the interviews that are hosted at welovebigbrother.com, but I also viewed the CBS videos for as long as I could handle that moron Jeff and his terrible interview style.

Aaryn Gries, 22

Hometown: San Angelo, Texas 

Current City: San Marcos, Texas 

College Student 

 

Picture a warm spring day in Texas. A frazzled Big Brother casting staffer is down to his last wits. He’s spent the last few weeks traveling from one minor city to another, making minor CBS affiliates happy by pretending to be auditioning potential housemates. Bad food, boring bars, terrible morning zoo radio hosts, and the worst of Middle America body shapes have him craving something...anything...even slightly appealing. A perfectly cooked Thai dinner, a live band, and a bit of slap and tickle with a fetching young lady is exactly what was needed.

With the dog and pony show over, it was now time to find the real Big Brother contestants. The kind that tickles Grodner’s nether regions. So this staffer has received the golden ticket - a college town in Texas. Even if he didn’t find somebody for the show, he’d be able to satisfy his urges by using his patented pickup line - “Wanna be on Big Brother?”

Surrounded by good ol’ Texas girls with legs up to here and breasts out to there, the staffer is successful the first two days. Nobody ever said a Texas girl was smart, after all, so the success rate of that line worked wonders. One of those nights, the bimbo even cooked him a meal.

To ensure his job security, though, he had to actually find a house guest, so on the third day he actually did his job. Like the first two days, he parked himself on a bench in the commons area and just waited. 

It didn’t take long. Aaryn Gries, a 22 year-old psych major, at least on paper. Her real story is her modeling career. Fresh-faced but working a curvy booty, at first glance Aaryn looks similar to a non-chip chomping version of Jordan. Oh yes, Grodner will love her!

Yes, she fits all of the Big Brother bimbo stereotypes. She is open to finding “love” on Big Brother, and all she wants is a guy that makes her laugh. Sure she does. Ok, the need for giggling dies quickly, as she lusts for a “lumberjack’. A lumberjack with “inner beauty”, though.

But any love she finds has to be real, as she can’t lie or fake it. Trust me, I bet she has faked it a few times before. Particularly when auditioning for bikini modeling gigs. 

For a psych major, though, she’s a terrible liar. She’s a “big” fan of the show, although she never saw it until this past December. This leads into a long story about how a bunch of episode were supposedly played in her living room. In December? That’s when she decided to “apply”, and has now seen almost half of the episode that has ever aired! Yeah, right.

The crazy thing is how the Big Brother Canada winner just happened to have the EXACT same gameplan that she plans to play. Wow, how is that possible? It really couldn’t be that she had NO gameplan until she heard this person’s winning formula! (By the way, she didn’t remember Jillian’s name, and certainly didn’t remember how Jillian won by a voting fluke.)

At this point, the interview lags. She babbles about how she is going to lie about her psych major, because obviously that would put her in jeopardy. This moves on to her pageant career, and grooming, and other insipid topics. 

My overall impression - she’ll look good in a bikini laying out, but she stands a good chance at keeping up the Big Brother formula of being the model that goes out on the second eviction. At least our staffer goes home a most satisfied man.

Three-ways and MVP's, Oh My!

As we get closer to premier night, more info is slowly trickling out...along with dozens and dozens of rumors, most of them ridiculous.

As Ash pointed out, yesterday started with the big reveal of the house design. *Yawn* I never really care about that stuff. It's pretty much the exact same layout, with different designs and colors. 

However, one difference sent the online world into a frenzy. Instead of two nomination chairs, there's a love seat. The rumor mill went into crisis mode. OMG! OMG! Talk generally centered on the idea of three nominees, and the possibility that America will pick one of them.

That's not to be. CBS announced today that we will NOT be picking the third nominee. I have a feeling, though, that the three nominee method won't last long. If I had to pick an over/under, I'd say under the halfway point of the season. Keep in mind that quite a few of the recent seasons have had rules that only lasted a month or so (coaches, immunity, etc.).

The public does have a voice in one new aspect of the show, though. Every week, we will be picking a "MVP" of the week. This scares me to death, especially since the first vote starts tomorrow! How can we pick a MVP based on a picture and a short interview? The pessimist in me is not happy.

On to some rumors. There were loads of silliness yesterday, as idiots were pretty much just making shit up and posting them as facts. One person listed a handful of past houseguest relatives as "definites", even though one of them would have to be accompanied by a full time doctor.

However, it does look like one particular relative is coming into the game, and it's one of my worst nightmares come true. I had noticed a week or so ago that Rachel was heavily tweeting about this season, but thought little about it. Then came word that her sister was a possibility...then a probability...then she copied Janelle's gimmick from last year of posting about a vacation in Greece. 

The Survivor rumor also seems to have some legs. Sources are pointing to either a virtual nobody who was the first or second having his fire extinguished, or an infamous pink-pantied creature from last season. Ooof, please no!

One more little tidbit before I hit publish. Late last night, some online detectives found a twitter account that had been taken over by his friends because he was supposedly going to be on this year's cast. A Harvard lacrosse player by the name of Gabe may or may not have seen his posibility of being on TV screwed up by his friends. Who knows?

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).

Rumors, Lies, and Wishful Thinking

Just a quick little update of sorts...and, of course, some self-promotion. While season 15 commences on Wednesday, June 26, the first episode of The Big Brother Gossip Show is tentatively scheduled for two weeks from tonight (June 22). We’ll probably ustream the live recording, which again will tentatively be set for 10 pm ET.

By then, we will know who will be going into the house, so the rumor mill will have dissipated a bit. Wow, there have been some crazy rumors! Originally, we were led to believe that it was all-newbie cast, and the biggest ever, but there is now some doubt to that. Some people are still claiming it’s an all-stars season, but there is NO evidence to support that. Trust me, NO evidence.

Another story floating around that seems to be gaining some traction is the presence of former Survivor and/or Amazing Race cast members. My initial reaction to that is “meh”, but it could work as long as it is not a past winner or big name. My problem with returning Big Brother cast members has always been the new players treat them as royalty. Veterans of other shows may not have the same advantage, but it would be similar. I want everybody to be on the same level.

One other rumor with some legs (and we all know I love legs) is a twist involving players who know each other. This I’m not crazy about, mainly because it’s been done before! At this point, though, it’s clear that the producers believe the show is all about twists, and, as usual, the commercials that are currently airing promise more big twists than ever. I’d rather they just fill the house with brazen psychos that aren’t afraid to ruffle feathers. Even the best twists can’t save a season full of robotic Shane-types.

Of course, I have to include a plea to buy your live feeds. If you don’t purchase them through the links on this page, please support your favorite Big Brother sites. In fact, buy from anybody but those former Real twits, please. CBS promises that starting on Monday, they will have content exclusive to feed watchers, so it makes sense to buy them as soon as possible. Plus, you save 20%!
