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.

  1. here in the Philippines, whoever you are, whether you won or not, famous or not, automatically gets you a contract with ABS-CBN. that’s why alot of people wanted to join the Philippine BB. not for the prize money, but for the said contract. /:)

  2. @Will: Well, there definitely is a LOT of eye candy for everyone in the BB house right now. So that may be reason enough for some to tune in for some. Wonder how they’d keep viewer’s interest for 3 whole months though?

    @Inggo: It’s no different here, ex-housemates get their 15 mins. of fame once they get evicted. The pretty ones get to grace men’s magazines in barely there outfits while the others become minor celebrities. Unfortunately for the rest, they get forgotten quite quickly. Ah, the things people do for fame…

    @Blackdove: I guess the appeal of reality shows are the mix of personalities in it and how they interact with one other. It also has its uses for people watchers and social observers. At the end of the day though, all of it’s just a game and everyone gets entertained for awhile but it’s all empty – nothing better than the small simulated people in the Sims game.

  3. “…I’d rather spend my time living my life rather than always looking in on the fake reality lives…”

    I wholeheartedly agree. With cameras all thoughout infront of their faces, there’s NOTHING real about this so-called reality shows. I’ve stopped watching Survivor after the 4th one. It is all just about money and greed.

  4. it’s funny how BB is different in that part of the world. Here BB is more like a stepping stone to stardom. :-“

  5. to tell you the truth – big brother has always annoyed me. I never paid any attention to it and turned my mind off whenever people talked about it at work.

    But… I have to say this years group is definitely very interesting. It does help to have very attractive women in the show (all seem to have D cups) + an insider who plots to wreck it for everyone + gay guy 😛
