It’s summer time and you know what that means, Big Brother is back!.
Big Brother is a reality game show on CBS, where a group of people live together and compete all summer long for the chance to win a half a million dollars. Every week fans watch as the “Houseguests” participate in rigorous competition and at the end of the week face a live “eviction”, where one Houseguest is sent home. Fans have the option of purchasing the live feeds at http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/live_feed/. This makes it possible for the fans to watch the Houseguests 24/7 as they live inside the Big Brother house.
The show is not as simple as it may seem, these Houseguests are pushed to their mental and physical limits. Throughout the 17 seasons we have witnessed Houseguest breakdown or even purposely try to get evicted from the game because the isolation was too much to handle.
If you’re a fan of the show, you are very familiar with the Big Brother saying, “expect the unexpected”. Every year I watch with my children as new twists are introduced. This year there is not only one twist, but new twists will be introduced into the game weekly. This should make it very hard for any Houseguest to execute his or her strategies. So far this season it has.
It’s not only twists that can mess up your game, but also other house guests. This season’s cast is one of the most diverse casts in Big Brother history. The 2015 cast includes a openly gay world famous female poker player (Vanessa Rousso), a openly gay male supermarket night stocker (Jason Roy), a openly transgender female (Audrey Middleton), a former WWE wrestler with an alter ego named Judas (Austin Matelson) and a pair of twins who are switching out and playing the game as one Houseguest.
I am very excited to watch the rest of the season this summer. I’m personally hoping Vanessa wins BB 17. She is my favorite and I think she is playing a fantastic game so far.
