I can hardly contain myself!

I don't know many people who watch Big Brother...but someone does because it's going into it's tenth season...and I don't have that much clout with anyone at CBS to keep it on the air for a total of five viewers. Two of my daughters watch it, and my old boss, who prefers I don't refer to her that way anymore since we both retired....her rich, me poor.

This season, according to CBS doesn't have a "twist". But it will have it's share of controversy. The house guests bios indicate that there are some strong personal views on religion, politics, sex, cowboys, breast implants and .....well, you get my drift.

Isn't this a great bunch of losers who would do anything for a stipend of $700 (or thereabout) a week? I mean, I'm sure it sounds great for some people to get away from the kids for a bit, or take a breather from that stressful job at Hooters. But would you consider staying away from your kidlets for over three months? The job, yes, but the kids?

Now, if you are a die hard fan, remember one little bit of hypocrisy about the first episode of the season. It was taped before today...or even yesterday. How does Grandma J know? Well hello
faithful readers..... take a peak at this photo.

No, they aren't from three seasons ago when Big Brother had a cowboy...take a closer look...there's a friggin 73 year old dude in this picture...
and there actually is a cowboy this year too.

And what about this picture
Mouseketeers? Not pretty!

and I'd love to know who at Morty's has access to this stuff! I wish I knew why gramps wore a shirt in the pool....his man boobs can't be any worse than the guy down front on the left. I do have to say, I've been screaming for years about the show only having one token person over 40 every year.

It's usually someone who adds a certain amount of spice to the house like Chicken George in season one.
Or more recently Sheila, who tried to join Team Christ last year.

So get on board, and I might do a poll every week the day before the live eviction if enough of you let me know you care are actually gonna be on the Big Brother Express this season.
Of course those of us who don't have to get up every morning can watch BBAD on SHO2! That would be three glorious hours of live feed in to the Big Brother house every night. .....usually after they are pretty much blitzed from playing beer pong.

Count me as one of the five viewers. I think this season will be interesting.
I couldn't believe they picked the HOH so fast, and I knew Jerry would be it. Not much of an honor but more of a target.
this should be interesting. I wonder about how long they have actually been in the house. Reality shows aren't really live are they?

Woo, woo! I love BB. I hate that they change their name each series because my DVR doesn't pick it up the new season. I missed half of it tonight, but I will catch up. I am excited it's starting and I am excited that you will have polls about it!

I only watched bits and pieces...when that lady started screaming, I honestly thought BB was piping in irritating voices over a speaker system. seriously.

I dont know much about anyone else, but people that are so inconsiderate as to make all kinds of noise when others are sleeping...well, they gotta, lady with the funky scarves....I think she should go.

Which, we all know, means she will be in the final 2. always.

I confess I don't watch Big Brother, because that would mean I actually spend more than five minutes away from the internet. I am physically and mentally unable to do that....

Rebeckah said...

I have never seen it, but if you are recomending it, well then, I am all over it : ). Maybe I can watch the first episode on demand. Hope your Monday is happy!

Keeper Of All Things said...

I haven't seen TV in years...I have no idea what is out there...just what I hear...and it doesn't look pretty :)

Mental P Mama said...

No BB for this mama. I'm not a fan of reality TV. My life supplies me with enough!

sista #2 said...

:-( big comment and blogger ate it..retyping.
LOVE Big Brother, big big fan of Chicken George, Howie etc.. Did NOT watch last season...quit watching, I didn't care for the people. Especially after that goon's retard comment..he gave me the major creaps.
This year..I love Brian and Dan right now.

Elizabeth Joy said...

And I thought I was the only person over the age of 20 who watched. The difference between you all and me, though, is that I'd never admit it in public.

Oh wait...

Grandma J said...

Wow, welcome BB10 fans.
I will put the nominees in a poll every week. If they get taken off via POV, then I will indicate it and put the replacement nominee there as well, which means I have to delete the first poll and start over because you can't edit a poll once someone votes. It will work out...otherwise we'll just have to have someone shoot the HOH! Problem solved :)

Sista #2, Don't forget to watch Tuesday night, they will recap as usual.

mysecondjournal, I think CBS had enough complaints to get away from some of the sleaze and shock and awe factor.

And even though I voted for Renny to get the boot, she is kind of funky (unlike me) and wears a wig, and has a ton of them...I was hoping to see her real hair last night on BADD, but no such luck. That's why she always has a hat or an "anchor" of some sort. Can you tell I'm excited this season?
