Default Big Brother 14 Kicks Off Tonight...

...and MAN it looks awful! I love that they have minorities on the show, but I hate how blatantly they promote it! And seriously CBS, how many members of the Hantz family do we need to see? What, was Boston Rob's uncle unavailable???

I've been a fan for a while, but this season isn't looking the best.

Cannot stand the high-pitch voice guy in the commercials.

I don't understand how this and Survivor are still on television. I don't know one person that watches either.

I'm on Day 39 of Big Brother UK which is FAR superior to the US garbage of a show IMHO.

Houseguests, the power is up for grabs. blah! I want to barf each time the Chen-Bot says that.

Is the Arroyo girl on the show related to Bronson Arroyo?

Yep, this drives me nuts. I have to have The Amazing Race and whatever comes on afterwards (Undercover Boss?) set up to DVR because the spillover happens so frequently.

Never watched BB until last night, because I think most reality TV is stupid. But, being a big Kittie fan, I'll watch to see how long Jenn lasts. And no, she's not related to Bronson Arroyo. Bronson is from Florida, Jenn is from Staten Island.

I didn't realize you had to be born in the same area to be related?

Another reality show that's total trash. I did catch a couple episodes the past couple years (my fiancee watches it religiously) to see that small, cute blond (who won years back and maybe won last year?)

I topped watching when they stopped casting "real" people. If I went on the show I would be the 1st one off. I would torment those a$$hats

All right. I don't THINK they're related. Arroyo is a relatively common last name. I haven't been able to find anything online suggesting they have anything in common besides a last name, and a passion for playing music. If you can find something that says they're related, I'll gladly stand corrected.

I don't think I'd be the first kicked off - but I'd tell ya, I'd focus my time trying to hook up with the cute blonde from last yr if she was on

It's the same show every year. They form clicks, they backstab, they manipulate votes.. it's a sad show.

The UK version of the show HouseMates are NOT allowed to talk about nominations. If they do, they are punished. The public votes people out each week, not other houseguests voting for them to be evicted, and Big Brother messes with the houseguests on the UK version. Big time. Plus, they have NO problem showing the boobies on the TV. It's a far superior show IMHO.

Well I just watched a few parts from last Sundays episode on my dvr. I had figured some of the show if not all of it was staged.

Well I was just watching the clip again where Willie "headbutted" Joe. Right before Willie pushed or whatever you call it someone yelled out hit him hard and Willie looked up like "that's my cue" on his face and pushed Joe. I watched the clip over and over and it was looking more staged each time. The voice that said "hit him hard" was the same voice that said Willie had to go to the room alone....the voice of the producer.

This is the worst mess up ever, worse than any WWE blunder haha
