One very observant Reality Tea reader brought to our attention that one of Amanda's Drink Hanky models looks exactly like Big BrotherhouseguestGinaMarie. I wasn't 100% convinced so I tweeted the Drink Hanky. Yes, the Drink Hanky is not only stylish, but it also tweets!
As a huge fan of Big Brother – and avid follower of the uncensored live feeds – I'm sickened by the racism, misogyny, and homophobia coming from the Big Brother 15 cast this summer week. Oy. I have to repeatedly remind myself that it's only the first week.
Apparently, CBS/Big Brother has asked the houseguests to not make racial or derogatory remarks against others in the house, but that's the EXTENT of CBS/Big Brother's willingness to get involved.
Whether or not the racial slurs make it to the CBS broadcasts of Big Brother remains to be seen, but in my opinion, hiding it exacerbates the problem. My guess, CBS will pretend the racism, misogyny, and homophobia inside the Big Brother house does not exist, which is unfortunate.
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."
The season started with a bang, got a little boring in the middle, and then Dan revived it with some brilliant moves. After 75 days in the Big Brother house, only Dan, Ian Terry, and Danielle Murphree remain.
Who will win Big Brother 14 – Master of the Mist, Awkward Super Fan, or Crazy Teacher Nurse?
After Jenn [Arroyo] City became Jenn Jury (haha, Big Brother, good one), Danielle Murphree, Ian Terry, Dan Gheesling, and Shane Meaney made up Big Brother 14's final four.
Dan points out that the Quack Pack is the final four. He says, "We gotta start eating our own ducks." Of course, Dan has eliminated one duck already, when he sacrificed Britney Haynes to keep himself safe. Tonight, Dan takes out duck number two.
Danielle wins Head of Household. The live feeds were down for almost two days, so there were some key points missing from yesterday's nomination and Power of Veto spoilers. Tonight's episode shows us, once again, just how good at this game Dan is.
Following the HoH competition, Danielle gloats, "I am HoH. I'm guaranteed final three. I just beat all the boys.. again. I am besides myself." Ian understands the importance of winning the final four Power of Veto. Dan is bummed he lost HoH. But, he has final three deals with everyone, so he's not too worried.
Danielle is upset because she has to choose between Shane and Dan. Dan tells Danielle to nominate him and Ian, so that's what she does. A sad Ian says, "It's win [PoV] or go home." An extremely confident Dan says, "Heading into this veto competition, it would be great to win, but I don't have to. I still have a lot of magic left in me. I've already pulled a lot of rabbits out of hats this summer. I'm not done yet."
Doomsday Wednesday is the fancy title CBS gave the most predictable hour of Big Brother all summer. This episode's only surprise came when Corn Flakes trumped Fruit Loops as the official cereal of Big Brother 14.
Dan Gheesling recovers from his risky nominations. Ian Terry is honored to have been "Memphised" by Dan. Ian doesn't know he was Dan's target. Danielle Murphree sulks for awhile, because that's what she does, but she goes right back to being Dan's number one girl.
Ian wins the next HoH. Jenn Arroyo talks to Ian right away. Ian tells Jenn he realizes there are "people here who have nominated me." Not I, says the one hasn't won a single HoH competition. Ian tells Dan he might have to use Dan as a pawn to "keep up appearances." Dan will never agree to this "crazy plan." Ever. In a million years. Dan stays silent, at first, and then tells Ian it's Renegades or nothing. Enough said. Ian nominates Jenn and Shane Meaney.
Julie Chen surprises the houseguests with an elimination and a Head of Household competition on a Tuesday. (Crazy, I know!) But first… the Power of Veto.
