Big Brother 15 premieres Wednesday, June 26 at 8/7c on CBS.
Following the premiere on Wednesday, Big Brother will air three nights weekly – Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The live eviction show hosted by the lovely Julie Chen happens on Wednesdays this season. Also new, Big Brother: After Dark will air on TV Guide Network (TVGN), not Showtime.
Are you all ready for the longest season ever of Big Brother? Big Brother 15 premieres in a little less than one week. This season's houseguests will endure two new weekly twists designed to shake up the game from day one.
First, three Big Brother houseguests will be nominated for eviction instead of two. More hamsters on the block most likely means more paranoia and drama surrounding nominations. So far – I like it.
Second, Big Brother fans will be asked to vote for the houseguest who they feel is playing the best game, and the winner of that vote will be declared the Big Brother MVP. The MVP will get a special power that impacts the game.
“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies," said Executive Producer Allison Grodner. "With America rewarding good game play, it doesn't pay to be a floater this summer."
Courtney Stodden bought herself some bigger boobs! The former Couples Therapy star loves the new boobs because they make her look more Jessica Rabbit-y. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried!
It almost seems like Farrah Abraham wrote a follow-up to How My Teenage Dream Ended, titled How My Porn Career Began, and Courtneybought a copy. Her jeepers creepers husband probably had to read it to her but that's besides the point.
Joey doesn't take herself too seriously. She seems witty, down to earth, and kind-hearted. Hands down, Joey is the bright spot in this dismal – albeit highly entertaining for all the wrong reasons – mess.
I do like thatBravo focuses on them as a group – for better or for worse – and doesn't allow any one Princess to dominate the show. However, in my opinion, the cast as a whole is neither likable nor interesting. I mean, these women are in their late twenties and early thirties, and really all we have seen thus far is one drunken fight over Facebook and a ridiculous amount of crying over high school drama from twelve years ago. I expected so much more.
Casey Cohen and Erica Gimbel break down the drama in their Bravo blogs. Erica insists she "respected" Casey's relationship with Dave, the boyfriend, and Casey calls her a liar. Also, Erica explains why she was so out of sorts in the Hamptons and addresses the Adderall.
In case you forgot: Erica Gimbel slept with Casey Cohen's boyfriend in high school, and Chanel "Coco" Omari, the bringer togetherer of this group, has invited both of them to the Hamptons for the weekend. They're all adults, so not a big deal, right? Not a chance in hell! Their first dinner ends with Casey at the dinner table, holding her head and sobbing, and Erica in the backyard, puffing away and looking like a regurgitated hair ball.
Casey is clearly cray cray, and Chanel, Ashlee White, and Joey stare at her accordingly. She leaves the room to search for the marbles she has lost but finds Erica instead. Casey takes this opportunity to remind the whore that she has ruined her life. Like, Erica slept with Casey's boyfriend well over ten years ago, and it still consumes her thoughts daily.
My first three thoughts: Where does Andy Cohen find these people? I also cannot figure out why Joey Lauren, a seemingly normal, classy young woman, is friends with them. And I am going to need a lot of wine to get through the rest of the season.
Once again, TLC promotesBreaking Amish as a series about five sheltered young adults, four Amish and one Mennonite, who leave their communities to experience life beyond the church. Only this time the cast visits Los Angeles instead of New York City.
TLCpromises, "This season features brighter skies – and darker secrets – as the cast leave their homes and venture west to live together, experiencing a lot of fake firsts along the way." Bright lights! Door knobs! Airplane! Gag me!
"With an all-new cast and a different, vibrant city, Breaking Amish: LA opens the door to these fascinating lives and the journeys they all embark on as they explore this new world in search of who they want to be – at the risk of losing everything they've ever had."
