As of about 3am this morning the Press Day tour videos of the "new" Big Brother 14 house were posted (Scroll down for one video). I won't lie, it was much tougher for me to get through this year than it usually is. Most of it was more about Rachel than it was about the house, and, of course she brought "BRENNON" with her. I don't suppose she could leave her wart at home just to do press day. The video of the "mini game" and tour is mostly just scripted DRs of Rachel saying things like "Nobody messes with MY man" etc.. To my knowledge this is the first time former house guests have been allowed in on press day to play the game with the other people. Rachel does get evicted, so there is THAT. Not soon enough though in my humble opinion.
The interview with Grodner in the producers video is foretelling of this season I think. No one has said that Rachel is definitely going to be there, but I think we can all safely say there are most likely going to be former rehashed house guests, and Grodner was definitely pushing the Rachel idea saying that last season was one of her favorites "because Rachel got to go from being hated to loved". I feel like we might be doomed, but then again I have been very wrong before, so maybe I will be pleasantly surprised. I can only hope.
The house on the other hand is kind of cute this year. Some photos of it were leaked earlier in the week and can be seen a few blogs back. There is also a video of Reality Nation's Spicy Pants giving a tour of parts of the house. I have seen the theme called "Tokyo pop" and also just "Space". Either way I kind of like it. It's not completely redone or revamped or anything spectacular. They did get a new fridge..but that's about it. The rest of it is just painted over as usual. It's cuter this year though.
Despite my feelings of horror that we might be gearing up for another season of Rachel and God forbid Brendon, I am actually starting to get excited to see the new cast! I kind of like this mentors theme rumor because I think it might mean that the rehashed former House Guests don't necessarily LIVE in the BB house and get to play. Maybe the actual House Guests will all be all new faces and OH wouldn't that be as refreshing as a cool misty breeze in my face during this 100 degree weather we are having down here.
If you would like to watch the videos and experience the horror (or joy if you are a fan..I know there are some Rachel rooters out there) yourself you can check them out here: http://superpass.real.com/big-brother-14/preseason/house-tour . If you don't have your live feeds you better get on it before the Early Bird Special is off and the price goes up!!
Are you guys excited?!
Here is Reality Nations almost 30 minute video of the house and a house tour. Enjoy?
