If you are clicking on this without watching tonight’s Big Brother, then please be prepared to not get a blow by blow account of what happened after the POV ceremony from last night’s episode. Instead, you will witness the rage of one Big Brother fan who has never been so upset about a television program since Buffy sacrificed herself by leaping into a portal to save her friends back in 2001. What could possibly have me that upset? I don’t even know where to begin…
First up, this entire week’s game play on Kalia’s part. Yes, I know. I applauded her for doing something bold for once by putting up two of the most powerful players in the house, but that all went to hell once Jeff read her the riot act, with Kalia flip-flopping to get back in the remaining Vets good graces.
Secondly, you have Shelly acting like the Big Brother version of Glee’s Sue Sylvester. Seriously, the woman is only missing the track suit and a little snark, but she does have Sue’s conniving and pot-stirring abilities on lock.
Then there is the eviction itself, which had the House Guests believing that keeping Rachel in the house was beneficial to them, because they didn’t want her to come back in the house “guns blazing.” To get to this logic, either faction in the house should have come to the conclusion that getting back in the house was not going to be the equivalent of throwing a pillow across a room. But silly me, I keep forgetting that we are dealing with the dumbest cast to ever reside in the Big Brother house.
You would think that the cast and crew of Big Brother couldn’t possibly make things worse than what I just listed. Then the America’s Choice vote came in and I lost my mind, my dinner, and possibly some hair off of my already low shaved head.
Allegedly, America wanted Brendon back in the game to the utter shock of everyone in the Big Brother house and most of the people on my Twitter feed, which exploded with anger when the man’s name was called. Am I saying that the viewers who populate my Twitter feed are the true voices of America? No, I’m most definitely not trying to make that claim. Just like I refuse to believe CBS’s claim that “America” truly voted to put Brendon back in the game.
“You have a serious bias against Brendon, which makes you a glorified hater!” Before anyone even let that thought cross their minds, let me reiterate my stance here: Kalia and Lawon played a horrible game in the later part of this week. That is a given. My anger is mostly stems from how it is becoming more and more apparent how bad CBS/the Big Brother producers want a Vet to win this game. Maybe even Brendon and Rachel to an extent. As Zap2it reporter Andrea Reiher so eloquently put it, the show is ‘quickly turning into the “Big Brother” version of ‘The Boston Rob Show’ we had to suffer through last season of “Survivor.” ‘ And, unfortunately, Ms. Reiher is right in that assumption and it totally sucks, because at this point, you can’t help but think that there is something going on at CBS and whatever it is smells fouler than the House Guests’ laundry after a competition.
Think about it. This twist pops into the game right after Brendon is evicted from the Big Brother house. I’m not saying that twist was never planned, but it’s hard to even believe that since it is the first time this has ever happened in the Big Brother game. Then when the twist is fully revealed to the House Guests, who does the camera focus on the most? Rachel. The way she reacted played right into the hands of how the producers wanted her to respond, which was the only thing of interest during the announcement. We barely even got to see Lawon’s “what the hell have I done?” face much, which should have been the focus, because he’s the one who shot himself in the foot. I’m telling you. Tonight’s eviction was sooooo planned on the production’s part.
Beside the fact of the Newbies pretty much laying down like doormats for the Vets to trample over from day one, the game this season has been set up for the six returning House Guest to steamroll the competition. The ‘preference’ for the Vets has become so annoyingly blatant that some most viewers have started to throw around the possibility of the show being “rigged” to some extent, which at this point I can’t help but ponder that hypothesis as well. There will never be any real ‘concrete’ proof on the matter, but if some evidence did come to light, I wouldn’t be as surprised as Lawon was when his ass was sent home tonight. Talk about a handicapped blind side… One thing I will be surprised about is if there isn’t any backlash from this ‘vote’ that happened this past week. Then again… That might not happen either. Frustrating much?
In conclusion, I won’t sit here and make a claim that I’m done with Big Brother and stop watching cold turkey. I will, however, call B.S. on tonight’s events all day everyday. And calling the “twist,” and the game at this point, B.S. is just putting it mildly really in the nicest way possible.
