Big Brother is back for the summer so this means my social life has vanished. Seriously, tis the season to watch complete strangers 24/7 without looking like a weirdo, sorta. I bought the Live Feeds this season so you bet I will get hooked. Also, Big Brother: After Dark has moved from Showtime to TVGN (TV Guide Network).
Julie Chen opens up the premier with a slight tour of the house. But, we are all stunned by the outside of the house or what we call the studio. It seems CBS put a budget to the set design. Maybe it has to do with Canada’s BB putting our old house to shame.
Time to meet the contestants. This is the section in which I judge, JUDGE HARD on the contestants. Some standouts are a gay ginger -gaynger, Rachel Reilly’s sister- Elissa, pizza delivery boy - McCrae, and youth counselor Howard who looks like a famous black athlete I can’t put my finger on.
The contestants enter the house. Candice, the girl who didn’t know she was adopted until 26, wanted to start an all-girl alliance. She notes that there hasn’t been one in the history of BB:USA. Kaitlin doesn’t want to join. She may be onto something as she remarks that girls are catty and bring too much drah-ma!
Can we go back to Candice, the mixed girl who found out she was adopted at 26. Girl, how can you look at your family and be, “Why am I the only dark one here” or “Why do I have such beautiful hair?” Her observational skills are questionable, at best.
The cast do introductions. Ginamarie has to tell the group that her puppies are real. I guess she is not ashamed of what she is working with. McCrae has a fancy for Howard. If he was gay, he would tear him apart! Get it Guuurrrrl (if he was gay).
No one believes McCrae is a pizza delivery boy. We can thank Ian for the paradigm that geeky looking guys must be super-smart. But really, he has no ambition in his life other than delivery under 30 minutes. #sorrynotsorry
The Start of Alliances
Howard, Spencer and Jeremy create a “secret” alliance. Then, Jeremy makes another with Jessie and David. McCrae walked in on the trio and they had an awkward exchange.
