The 19th season of this summer tradition has begun and a whole new set of house guests have checked into the Big Brother house with the theme of temptation. For the next 3 months or so I will be held hostage 3 days a week to see the drama unfold. One thing about Big Brother is you do not assume anything so we shall see what happens.
It’s time once again to fire up the cameras, turn on the lights and to see how total strangers get along with one another for the Summer. Big Brother which has versions around the world is a great social experiment. Julie Chen returns to host the American version which airs on CBS. Let’s see how the new crop of house guests do as they compete for $500,000 (which should be like a $1 million by now). I hope the “hamsters” are ready to expect the unexpected, do not assume anything.
Alisan Porter had a interesting journey to winning The Voice. She played Curly Sue in the movie by the same name. She was also on Star Search as a kid. Now she wins the American version of The Voice. Her vocal range can go from powerful to subtle. I can see why she won this. Her coach Christina Aguilera became the first woman coach to win too. Congratulations Alisan.
Tonight the 10th season of NBC’s The Voice concludes with a two hour spectacular and the crowning of The Voice. It’s been a great season. I am pulling for Laith or Alisan.
The new season of Survivor is premiering tonight with a revisit of Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty. It’s hard to believe it’s here and from the promos this will be a brutal season. Survivor remains the granddaddy of all reality competition shows. They do a great job of keeping this show fresh and interesting. This will be very interesting all season.
Tonight our annual rite of Summer begins as we get to see the house guests of the 17th season of Big Brother US. We can expect the unexpected and twists are a huge part of the game. The cast this year seems more diverse in many ways so that makes for a good season. Julie Chen also known as the “Chen Bot” shall guide us through this season of crosses and double crosses, backstabbing and all the stuff that people do when they are cooped up with people they just met. I can’t wait!
I have never understood the point of these shows. Why do really good looking people need help in funding a mate? Most of these people are well off and have great social connections. They should have little trouble in this area. Some of these people are cray cray though. I’m just saying. Roses aren’t needed.
