24 Hour Impressions

It’s kind of amazing how quickly one’s opinions change once the live feeds are turned on. Many whose qualities you questioned during the preseason interviews suddenly come off as real players; others who are full of confidence and fierce attitudes shrivel down to needy whiners.

Here are some quick thoughts after watching the feeds for the past 24 hours:

Amber. I kind of like her. She’s no brain surgeon, but she’s a pretty likeable woman.

Brittany. The jury is still out on her. Earlier tonight, she told Caleb that she’s now ready to play the game. Honey, it’s day 8. I give her some credit, though, for directly telling Caleb that she wanted Derrick put up instead of the plan to get rid of Joey.

Caleb. He’s playing hard. Too hard. He truly believes that winning every competition is the way to win. He’s also very irrational. It appears that the only reason he nominated Donny is because the love of his life, Amber, is friendly with him. He’s also very contradictory. In the talks he’s had about who will replace Donny on the block, he goes back and forth between saying it’s a house vote to it being his decision...sometimes in the same sentence. His obsession with Amber is kind of scary, and looks to possibly become a reversal of BB14’s Danielle/Shane mess.

Christine. Hmmm. I don’t know what to think. She is very guilty of whisper-talking, one of a live feeders worst nightmares.

Cody. Honestly, I’ve barely seen him on the feeds. He just seems like an anonymous “bro”.

Derrick. I’ve seen him on the feeds once today, having a lengthy discussion with Donny about his nonexistent “Park and Rec” job. He’s gone so undercover he’s rarely on cam.

Devin. Ugh. As seen on the broadcast episodes, he came in with guns blazing, and he has yet to let up. He talks, and talks, and talks. He one-ups every story. He’s got some serious OCD issues, including a paranoia over others using his towel. If it’s ever out of sight, he won’t use it again. He also sort of admitted to having steroid issues in his baseball days.

Donny. Yes, he was cast in a “fish out of water” role, but he’s REALLY out of his element on this season. He’s extremely likable, and always has a smile on his face, but he really has nobody to bond with.

Frankie. The shocker of the season so far. He’s actually a great gameplayer. He’s able to bond with everybody - the girls, the outsiders, the jocks. He may have deals with everybody, but he’s really in no danger of being found out. His only real alliance appears to be with Zach, and the two of them can go far. Of course, he’s a different character when he knows he’s being broadcast, such as the opening of the feeds last night. I’m assuming that I’m going to hate his diary room segments, and any other broadcast-only footage. On the feeds, though, he’s really not that bad.

Hayden. He’s exactly as I predicted. He sucks.

Jocasta. She promised to be a spitball in the house. She’s not. She’s a bore that primarily lingers just outside of the camera view.

Joey. She’s a complete annoyance. She babbles constantly, and it’s usually about nothing. Yes, it was nice that she streaked last night, but why couldn’t it have been Amber? Great job, America. Your pick will probably be leaving this week.

Nicole. Another bore. She’s rarely seen, and even more rarely heard.

Paola. While I predicted that she would annoy me, I assumed that this would be due to her mouth. She was supposed to be the one to bring on the drama. She has yet to do that. In fact, she’s one that constantly needs encouragement, although to be fair that is partly due to the fact that she’s on the block.

Victoria. The self-proclaimed “prettiest girl in the house” has some serious self-esteem issues. Earlier tonight, she had a tearful chat with Frankie about how scared she is that the rest of the house will discover she has hair extensions. There’s also been an ongoing controversy regarding the sleeping arrangements, as her religion bars her from sleeping in the same room as a man. Yeah, this should work out well for her.

Zach. I never really jumped on the “modern day Dr. Will” bandwagon that I’ve heard from others, but he does have a pretty good grip on how to succeed in the game. He’s not living up to the “I’m going to hate everybody” mantra he expressed in his preseason interviews, but I don’t think he’s going to have problems making tough decisions. I did cringe, though, when he told Frankie that they’re the new “Memphis and Dan”.

Again, these are initial impressions based on just under 24 hours of feeds. My opinions could change before we get to tomorrow’s Big Brother Gossip Show at 10 pm ET. Are you going to listen? You better!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 2 Recap

Last night, we were introduced to eight new contestants, viewed a HOH competition handed by Amber to Frankie, and heard some (but not all) details about various twists. Tonight, we do it all over again, and hopefully by the end of the hour a LOT of questions will be answered about the dual HOH winners.

Julie opens in the studio last night, and just in case you forgot what happened 24 hours ago, we get a recap of last night’s show. Why do they do this?

It’s now time to meet the next group of eight house guests. We start off with Victoria, the photographer. She’s from Israel, and moved to America when she was eight. She’s “orthodox, but we don’t dress it”. She says that it’s easy for her to manipulate guys. “Victoria gets what Victoria wants.”

Up next is Caleb, a good ol’ boy who calls himself a “mextrosexual country boy”. Some days he wears cowboy boots, but other days he whips out the hair gel. “Next thing I know, I look like Robin Thicke out there.” Sure you do.

Third up is Brittany, who is flaunting her body in a swimsuit as she talks about how she just escaped a ten year marriage. Big Brother is going to be the start of a “whole new start”. Actually, the last word was cut off thanks to crappy editing. She has three kids, who are so important that she’s going to leave them for three months.

Christine is next up, and we meet her while she’s working as a barista. She loves her job because she gets to meet so many people, and knows everything about everybody that comes in. She’s married, but instead of the short, chubby guys she generally dated, her husband is super-skinny. She’s also a huge Big Brother fan, and she thinks that everybody is going to trust her because she’s so nice.

Everybody thinks Derrick is a college kid, but he’s actually a cop that has worked undercover in the past. He says there’s “nothing in the house that can throw me off my game”.

Zach is a recent college grad, and he’s currently unemployed. He says he doesn’t need any friends. “They serve no purpose.” He’s looking forward to lying, and lying some more in the Big Brother house. “I tell people how it is, and I don’t care what the consequences are.” We see a picture of him with a black eye after he did such a thing.

Jocasta is shown preaching as she’s introduced. “I’m your minister, and your motivational speaker from the church house.” She’s a mother of two, and she’s an “awesome mom because God gave them to me”.  

The pedicab driver, Hayden, is next. He’s the “goofy, funny kid” everybody is going to love. “I’m going to be friends with everyone.” He believes that people will underestimate him because he looks like a hippie, but he was actually on the dean’s list. Then why are you driving a pedicab?

Just like last night, we now get the fake footage of everybody having an hour to pack. This is worthless, except for one nice little tidbit. “My past is my past”, says Jacosta. “I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve done a lot of people; men, women. But God made me (and) transformed me into the person I am.” Hmmm, does she have a wild side? Oh, we also find out that Christine is a nudist, and wishes she could live naked on Big Brother.

Like last night, we now see them on stage being given the “expect the unexpected” speech from Julie. They all act shocked to find out that the other eight are already in the house, and that there’s already a HOH. Julie goes on to inform them that there will be one more HOH crowned tonight, but “by the end of the week there will only be one HOH standing”.

Jacosta, Caleb, Christine, and Hayden are sent into the house first, and it’s the usual screemfest that you would expect. Christine is excited to be on her favorite show, but Caleb is more excited about the “hotties”. He especially likes Amber, who he says is “taking a big bite of my cake right now”. Jacosta is most concerned about where she’s going to sleep, and rushes around to find a suitable bed. “”Who the heck am I sleeping with?”

Oh God, Hayden tells Devin that he looks like the Rock. This is something he said about himself last night, and I just don’t see it! Hayden also thinks Amber looks like Whitney Houston (wtf?), and that Cody looks like John Travolta. Somebody get this guy some glasses!

The other four are now sent in by Julie, and it’s not much different than the earlier entrance. People jump up and down, and there’s screaming. Zach seems confused but “I don’t give a damn about meeting these people”. I think I do like him. Frankie, meanwhile, bonds with Victoria, who loves him because he has pink hair and she’s wearing a pink dress. Yes, that’s what she said. Nicole is worried that the new people are going to change the bonds that have already been established.

They all move into the kitchen to introduce each other over jars of champagne. Victoria thinks she’s the hottest girl in the house, while Joey loves Christine. Derrick lies about his job, saying that he works in Parks and Rec. In the diary room, Donny admits he’s going to have a hard time remembering the names of the new people. Cody, meanwhile, is shocked to find out that Brittany’s hot body has bore three kids. Red flags go up to Frankie over Cody’s country background.

After commercials, the bonding continues. The pink twins talk about religion, and Frankie says that he’s doing it because he needs a friend on the “other side” of the house. They agree to work together. Pow Pow wants to find out more about Caleb to see if he’s a “threat to my game”. She tells him that she’s a “really straight up person”, and Caleb replies that he knows hot to read people. He says that he is going to win the upcoming HOH because he’s not the type to throw competitions. Pow Pow is worried.

As a bunch of them are sitting around trying to think of something to do, Donny suddenly unveils his special talent! No, not that type of talent. He can imitate a cricket! He claims in the diary room that he’s “distractin’”. He claims that he doesn’t want people to think he’s good at the game. “I want people to think I’m funny.” Interesting.

Frankly, I’m kind of tired of these nonsensical conversations, although Zach and Frankie already seem to have some issues with each other. Actually, I kind of love the Zach is poking a bit at him. “Zach, here’s an idea for you”, says Frankie in the diary room. “Maybe you shouldn’t be pissing off the new HOH in the very first conversation you have with him.” I love it!

After another commercial break, it’s now time for the second HOH competition. Jacosta is shown praying before she heads out to kick some ass. They walk out to a setup that is pretty similar to last night’s. It’s that same revolving barrel with a different background. This one has a pig roast, tiki party background, and it’s called “Over the Coals”. They’re draped around the “spit”, and the last one hanging onto it is the winner.

Cue the cheesy music as they start revolving, and this is a competition that is definitely designed for big, tall people. Victoria is the first to fall, mainly because she’s “too pretty” to do this competition. Frankie is bummed.

Julie cuts in to announce that a “BBQ isn’t complete without a little BBQ sauce”. Brittany almost immediately falls after they squirt the sauce all over them, followed by Jacosta and Christine.

Now it’s only the guys left, and Zach purposely drops. Derrick goes next, and he says that he “proved” he’s a strong player but didn’t have to get blood on his hands. It’s now between Hayden and Caleb, and they’re still at it as we go to a break.

We return to the two of them spinning and spinning, and Caleb starts showing off. Finally, Hayden falls, but I’m impressed. Caleb hugs him, and tells Hayden that he’s safe this week.

Julie has them all head back to the living room, and Frankie says that he knows that he now has to work with Caleb. Julie then tells them that every week there will be two HOH’s who will each nominate two people. “In a Big Brother first”, there’s a new comp called “Battle of the Block”. Frankie’s two nominees will battle Caleb’s two nominees, and the winning duo will be safe from nomination. The losing HOH will be dethroned, and can be then put up in a veto situation. “You can go from being HOH to being evicted”, Julie explains. Obviously, they’re all shocked. In case you’re unclear of that, we get a run of people in the diary room telling you that exact thing.

After one last break, Julie again explains the America, Fuck Yeah twist. The winner of the first online vote, and the first to Team America, is then shown coming into the diary room. Shockingly, it’s Joey! Wait, Joey! Nothing against her, but why would people vote for one of the most anonymous people in the house! Oh, and every mission they win the Team America threesome will get five thousand bucks.

We get a bunch of promos for live feeds, Jeff Schroeder, and Big Brother After Dark before Julie wraps up the show. That’s all folks! What did you think of the episode? Do you like the HOH twist? What about these eight fools? Tell us what you think!

How To Listen To The Big Brother Gossip Show!

It’s hard to believe that tonight marks the first episode of a new season of Big Brother Gossip Shows. It seems like forever since Mike, Colette, and I last bickered and whined about what was happening on our favorite TV show.

Tonight at 10 pm ET we will be running down our thoughts on the new cast and the various twists (and rumors of twists) that were announced earlier this week. However, there are some changes to how we bring you our show.

If you don’t listen live, nothing has changed. If you subscribe to us via iTunes, the show will probably automatically download to your account. If you utilize Stitcher, it will be available sometime late tonight.

For those that listen to us live, there are drastic changes. Yet it will also be even easier to hear us than ever before. There will no longer be Ustream ads interrupting our live show, and you’ll be able to listen to us anywhere.

Instead of Ustream, we’re going to be live-streaming via a service called Mixlr. They do have an iPhone/iPad app, so if you want to hear us on the road go download it now. When it gets close to showtime, just do a search for Big Brother Gossip Show and you’ll be able to listen and chat.

If you’re at home, either head to bigbrothergossip or bigbrotherpodcast. You’ll see a Mixler box like this at the side of the page:

If you’re not interested in the chat, you can just hit play on that after we commence and you’ll be able to hear our show. For those that do want to interact with other listeners, just click on the name of the show, and you’ll see this in a new window:

Create a username to be a part of the chat, click play and you’re in with everybody else!

Please keep in mind that using Mixlr is a bit of an experiment. There is a good chance that we may have some issues. If so, please be patient. If it’s a complete disaster, we’ll just move back over to Ustream next week!
