Or rather, I am watching Big Brother! I'm a little late to the game, but I have become obsessed with this reality show. I just finished Big Brother Season 14. It was a crazy season (it was the one where there were 4 coaches, who eventually became a part of the competition).
What I really came to write about is this: Where do they find these people? I assume there is an open call/audition. They must have some algorithm that combines idiots with savants, those with integrity and those without, those who can look into your eyes and lie, and those who couldn't tell a lie to save themselves. I think it is the social aspect that always surprises me. A few of the things that surprised me included contestants that had never eaten hummus or guacamole. Really? How about the 30 year old guy that had never met a lesbian? Or the gal that had never known a gay man? Really? Do they pick people that have led sheltered lives?
I'm a bit sad that I have caught up as best I can on all the seasons, without paying a ridiculous amount to watch the "All Stars" season ($45). Season 17 is still going on, so you know where I will be Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday nights....well, technically, I record the sows and end up watching these on the following mornings because my husband can't stand reality TV. But that's okay - I can't stand the history channel (his favorite).
With any luck, tomorrow will bring a blog entry that has more substance.
