Big Brother, year 6

The sixth season of Big Brother started last Sunday and the current batch of housemates are certainly a more interesting bunch than last year’s. Our favorite housemate is David, a model turned organic farmer, he’s hot and down-to-earth. He remains popular today, specially after announcing last night that he’s gay! Much to the disappointment of fellow housemate, Camilla, who thought that he was flirting with her.

The promised world-first twist was no big surprise at all, with a mother-daughter team among the housemates unbeknownst to the other housemates. Karen and Krystal, both with newly acquired breast implants, are keeping their relationship a secret. Viewer-voted insider/saboteur Michael, must try and discover their secret or face automatic nomination come Sunday.

Mildly interesting to say the least, but I don’t think it’ll have us glued to the television everytime it’s on. Just like the previous year, we normally catch the late night live feed from the house before we go to bed just to see if anything interesting is happening. Then, there’s always the re-cap shows to keep us up-to-date with what’s going on.

I caught each and every show of Big Brother’s third season, the first BB I watched as a new migrant in Australia, mainly because I want to get used to how Australians talk (accents, slangs, phrasings, etc). This time around though, I think I’d rather spend my time living my life rather than always looking in on the fake reality lives being orchestrated by Big Brother.
