The Night Owl

The Big Brother Gossip website and CBS live feeds are both having issues tonight, so make of this blog what you will.  Half the night the feeds were not working, and half of the night the sound was out on 1/2 of them.  I will try to convey the basics and what I learned though. I am also unable to upload pictures, so sorry for the lack of those.

When I first got my feeds working tonight, all the HGs were gathered in the living room in the midst of a fashion show (yawn).  Helen won and was crowned with a fuzzy pink kitten hat.  After this the HGs broke off into little groups in different places.

16 HGs is a LOT of people to try and follow, so I am still completely fuzzy on the details of who is aligned with who.  Here is what I know:  McCrae is HOH.  He has nominated Candice and Jessie.  He seems to have an alliance with Nick and possibly Howard, Jeremy, and Spencer.  The have nots are Andy, Elissa, Judd, Howard, and Helen.  We do not know who the MVP is yet, but a lot of the HGs, along with the rest of the world, are pretty sure it will be Elissa.  AAryn is positive it will be Elissa and that she will be the one nominated. I think they must have had a confrontation of some sort before the feeds came on.  A lot of the girls are really interested in the idea of getting Elissa out, but are pretty sure it won't happen this week. McCrae and Judd had a discussion about wanting to keep Elissa around so that there would be a big target in the house.  Obviously we all know production would never let her go out this soon.  They also all seem to either by noticing or by hearing it realize that she is Rachel's sister.  The HGs have been on lockdown all night, which leads me to believe they are likely playing POV tomorrow/today. 

There are crazy romance, couples, and love triangles everywhere.  Aaryn and David already seem to be a full on couple.  Jessie (who I despise already) spent most of her night not only whining about being nominated, but whining about how Jeremy (who apparently at one point showed some interest in her) was now flirting with and laying in the same bed with Kaitlin.  She spent a good hour or more telling Jeremy how she felt about him showing Kaitlin attention.  Kaitlin gives as good as she gets and spent a good portion of the night complaining about Jessie and Jessie's relationship with Jeremy. Jessie's insecurities really started hanging out when she tried to talk to several other HGs about being nominated and she really seemed to be losing it.  I'm hoping for a full on meltdown very soon.

What I got from Candice is that she talks LOUD and she talks a LOT...to EVERYONE.  She spent most of the night talking about everyone to everyone else.  I have no idea where her true loyalty lies at this point.  She does seem to be closer to Jessie than to the other girls she was talking to though.

I could see, but couldn't hear much of anything from Andy, Judd, Nick, McCrae, Elissa (small blessings), or Howard, so I can only tell you that it was obvious that they were doing some gaming, but I have no idea what they were saying.

 I'm actually really loving this cast so far.  I only loathe Jessie, Elissa, David, and Jeremy so far.  That's pretty good out of a cast of 16.  I'm loving McCrae and I am happy for him winning HOH. This is the first time in a long time that I've liked the first HOH.  I also still like Nick.  He shows promise as a gamer, he is pretty smart (so far anyway), and he was the last one hanging in the HOH comp with McCrae. I like Andy a lot from what I have seen of him, but that was very little tonight.  What did you all think of the first episode? Who are your early favorites?  Welcome to BB 15!!!

Hopefully tomorrow night more of the bugs will be worked out and I can give you all a more thorough rundown of everything that has happened.  I also tweeted pretty much every ridiculous thought in my head about what I saw (including pics of GinaMarie with a tampon up her nose) @ashes2ashes13 if you want to read through that nonsense.

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%!

A Couple of Odds And Ends

There have been a lot of questions coming our way these past few weeks, so I thought I'd throw a quick post up here. How the hell have you all been this winter, by the way? Personally, I have a new side gig that is taking up a lot of time, which is why...

No, I'm not watching Big Brother Canada. Ok, I take that back. I'm watching the actual broadcasts on YouTube. I'm not, however, watching the feeds. There are many factors why, including the new second job as a music writer for the local newspaper (Argus Leader). This is also a much busier TV time than summer, so I am constantly struggling to empty my DVR.

The main reason I'm not watching, though, is pure lack of interest. Yes, it is an all-noob cast, so one of my Big Brother US dreams is being fulfilled up north. Outside of that, I don't have much positive to say. They have completely copied the U.S. formula - HOH, POV, Have-nots, slop, etc. They've even recycled all of the speeches before the various ceremonies, including the much derided "who wants to see my HOH room?" There are a couple of elements borrowed from other countries, though. There's a telephone AND a talking moose that give the players tasks to win dinners and booze.

I'm also not taking a liking to the cast. I don't really hate anybody, though, except for possibly the recently evicted glitter king, Gary. I just haven't developed any positive OR negative feelings about the rest of the cast. I have nobody to root for or against. They're all just dead weight.

One of this site's other contributors, Ash, is a big, big fan, though, so if you do want updates then you should click her twitter link on the left side of this page.

Ok, now on to the other big news. Last week, it was announced that CBS was taking over this year's live feeds. They will not be handled by Superpass. Obviously, this raises a million questions, and we really don't have any answers. As more details emerge, I'm sure Mike will be quick to update the site, and we may even do an early Big Brother Gossip Show episode to explain everything. 

Don't forget, though, that this season will be starting a couple of weeks early. The season premiere is currently scheduled for June 26. What does that mean for this season? Who knows, but it does indicate that there will probably be even more contestants than last year.

What would you like to see happen this year? Do you disagree with my critique of the Canadian version? Have at me, my friends. It's been awhile since I've had hate mail. :)
