The Big Brother Racists

I haven’t really talked about “Big Brother” this year, mostly because I’ve been bored by it. There was no one I liked, no one I wanted to root for. They even included Rachel’s sister in the cast this season. One would think, as a Rachel fan, I’d be excited, but no. Please take this the wrong way, but her sister, Elissa, is just Rachel with all the charisma and sexiness removed. And her personality consists of just her being Rachel’s sister. Yawn.

There is even a new twist with the eviction process, an added candidate, but none of it was really enough to catch my attention. It really comes down to cast. Cast someone I’ll want to like, not a bunch of bland rejects from “90120” auditions. No one here clicked for me.

Then something happened, something both exciting, and fully explaining why I didn’t like anyone. There wasn’t anyone to like, except for a couple racists, whom are just built for the audience to hate. Trouble is, we haven’t been privy to their hate until just recently. Now CBS has opened the doors to reveal these imbeciles to the world.

Houseguests Aaryn, and to a lesser extent, Ginamarie, have been showing their ‘true colors’ as they have made serious anti-Asian, anti-black, and anti-gay remarks about their fellow houseguests. Really? A twenty-two year old with views like this? I am shocked in this day and age. Are there really monsters like this still walking around in America? Thank the gods she has lost her job while in the house. At least someone is clear thinking.

Now I have a reason to watch “Big Brother” this season, and someone very specific to root against, boo, hiss, and wish misfortunes upon. Don’t cry, Aaryn, maybe the neo-Nazis are looking for a new cover girl…

I cannot wait for Aaryn’s exit interview …with Julie…

Big Brother Babies

I love reality television, and I love “Big Brother,” but I gotta say, the eleventh season of the series has bee filled with idiots. Oh, I know what you’re saying out there, especially those detractors of the format – they are idiots. No, I mean bigger idiots.

I’ve mentioned before how much I hated the opening ‘back to high school’ concept of “Big Brother 11,” but it’s gotten worse. I was enraged when last season’s Jessie returned and even got the first Head of Household and continued to have control of the house for a few weeks. And I’ve also talked about how much I dislike Jessie.

The rest of the houseguests are so distasteful that I have to be honest, up until his eviction last night, I was rooting for Jessie. If it couldn’t be Ronnie, I wanted Jessie to win. Ronnie of course was evicted for playing the game. It occurs to me that most of the cast this season seem blissfully unaware of the rules of the game, and that it is a game. Newsflash, idiots, “Big Brother” is a game.

This cast also seems incredibly immature. Have we ever had housemates before that rifled through and stole each other’s belongings? Sabotaged production? Blackmailed the producers? Demanded bath and beauty products to behave? Didn’t these idiots sign contracts before entering the house? I’m thinking CBS should take some legal action once this season is over against those individuals who jeopardized their program.

This is how they come across… Lydia and Kevin switch sides like the wind blows. Chima is just a spoiled brat – the nerve of her saying she needs to speak to the producers! If Jeff and Jordan put their heads together they might be as smart as Jessie on a bad day. Russell is a time bomb who needs anger management badly. These are the impressions they are giving on national television. Is that what they want folks to think of them? I would love to be a fly on the wall when they see the video of their time in the house.

The biggest question I am concerned with this season now that Jessie and Ronnie are gone and the rest of them have proved themselves idiots is… will Julie Chen make it to the end of the season before her baby arrives.

And please, Natalie should take a shower. I can smell her through my television.

Never Going Back to My Old School…

The eleventh season of the American “Big Brother” premiered tonight on CBS. The reality TV series focuses on a number of individuals living together in one house for an extended amount of time, isolated from the outside world, participating in competitions and voting each other out until only one remains to collect a huge cash prize.

I’ve been a fan since the first season. Notably the American edition is slightly different from the dozens of versions done in countries across the globe. You see, Americans are stupid and have shorter attention spans. That’s apparently why the show seems to attract such idiots – or at least that’s my theory. Basically, if I like a contestant, either America, or the rest of the idiot housemates, won’t – and they’ll get voted off. It’s such a sure thing, I should bet money.

There are some contestants introduced tonight that I genuinely liked – Ronnie the gamer, Lydia the girl with the ink, and especially Kevin the graphic designer. But they are immediately doomed when this season’s surprise premise is announced. We are always told to ‘expect the unexpected’ when it comes to the seasonly themes, and this season’s – well, it instantly put my initial faves in the bullseye.

The theme for “Big Brother 11” is high school, as the housemates are separated by clique – just like high school. The cliques are: the Athletes, the Popular, the Brains, and the Offbeat. For the last two, please feel free to substitute the words geek, dork, nerd, or whatever works for you – the kids that the first two groups would beat on, call names, shove in lockers and give wedgies to. Hell, even the first competition included, guess what, wedgies.

When it was said the theme was high school, guess which group said they would never go back to high school, and guess which group said they loooved high school, and guess which group had looks of utter horror on their faces? And gee, I wonder who’s going to win? I know I hated high school and I know I would never want to go back to high school, even for money and national television exposure.

Probably the biggest kick in the teeth is that the winners of the wedgie competition got an extra member to their clique who would become the Head of Household for the week. For beginners, the HoH is the one who chooses who gets voted out each week. That extra member (for the Athletes, because who else would be best at the art of wedgie?) was a cast member from last season – the king of idiots in my opinion, Jessie, whose muscles seem to have overwhelmed his small brain.

Hmmm… I wonder who’s going home this week? I should make my cash money bet now. it’ll be folks from the Brains or the Offbeat, and probably at least one of my favorites. Just like every other season of “Big Brother,” and even more just like high school. I wonder if the next competition will involve being stuffed in a locker or swirlies?
