Big Brother After Dark Big Brother 14 July 13, 2012

I'm watching Big Brother After Dark on Show2. Tonight is the second night of the Big Brother 14 season. There was no CBS show tonight- those are Thursdays on CBS.

So far the After Dark action on Big Brother 14 is pretty boring. It basically feels like being a voyeur in a co-ed college dorm- if nothing ever happened in college except lounging around and being boring.

I saw the son of pro wrestler Sid Vicious lying on a hammock whining and telling some other male houseguest that he's not going to discuss strategy with Boogie. Boogie is, of course, Mike "Boogie" Malin, one-half of the legendary ( if reality show bromances can be called legendary) Chill Town partnership with Dr. Will from the first season of Big Brother and the All-Star edition. He has made a career as a perennial reality shows contestant and bar owner.

Then I see a couple blonde chicks hanging around in tank tops and small shorts, holding solo cups, and talking about really boring stuff like "I don't like to workout. Do you?" "No." "But does it, like, make you feel better and stuff?" "Yeah.".. You get the idea. And like I said, it's basically like hanging out with some older college students and not doing anything. We've got Playmate of the Year 2006 Kara Monaco and some other model-looking chicks, but they are hanging out in their loungewear having what seems like the lamest slumber party since 4th grade. Then you have a bunch of dude dudes hanging around thinking "Bro, those puppies look pretty sweet in that t-shirt, and I see your little mesh shorts rising up your thigh, but if I want to see more I'm going to have to get a subscription to Mr Skin. or something."

Now someone just brought out the famous Matthew McConaughy line from the movie "Dazed and Confused," when his older perv character laments how he keeps getting older but these "High School Girls Keep Staying the same age."

Followed by a few "Mary Jane" references, like the Tom Petty song "Last Dance with Mary Jane."

This needs to be more exciting. Fortunately, I have some experience hanging around really boring college parties, as well as summer get togethers with co-workers at seasonal jobs.  And if my experience is any indication, often when a bunch of attractive young people are hanging out, no matter how mellow things are, once the liquid libations get flowing, the inhibitions start to lessen, and SOMETHING happens. So either some one is going to Get It On..sometime.. Or one of these dudes is going to get pent up with rage and get tired of ogling clothed cleavage and start BRoing out, starting some fights with someone. Stay tuned.

A New Poll for Our Readers: Are You Interested in Big Brother 14 Coverage?

I have just added a new poll on our sidebar and I am looking for input from our regular readers and visitors. Big Brother is one of the most popular reality shows in the history of television and provides a lot of entertainment every summer. We have not done much Big Brother blogging in the past. We have had writers who enjoy other shows like Dancing with the Stars and The Amazing Race, but I have tended to direct our readers over to BigBrotherFansBlog.com, where there has been pretty exhaustive coverage of Big Brother for at least 5-6 years now.

Personally, I have never been into Big Brother that much, but I am watching the Big Brother 14 Premiere episode right now. I also have all the Showtime channels and finally got a cable television service with DVR. So I am recording the entire season of Big Brother 14 on CBS, and I will also be recording all the Show2 episodes of Big Brother After Dark. I am thinking about attempting to live blog some episodes here and also watch and write up recaps of the episodes for this season, but I don't know if there is any interest.

To our readers, I ask: Are you interested in Big Brother 14 episode recaps and After Dark blogging here on Reality Shows Blog? Please answer our poll in the sidebar. Thanks!

There is a new commercial promo that introduces us to some of the guests, including the first names of Big Brother 14 house guests. It looks like we have a couple models, including a Playboy Playmate, and the typical assortment of characters. Rumors have been running wild for some time about some special twists, like a few past Big Brother contestants returning as mentors to the new cast.

Big Brother 14 Feeds Early Bird Special Sale Time



It's that time of year again- Almost time for the 14th Season of the hit CBS reality tv show "Big Brother." There is always a great deal of anticipation for the reality television even of the summer, and some would say the highlight of the year when it comes to reality television programming.

Season 13 gave CBS great ratings for the summer season and this year promises to continue the annual tradition. Rumors going around are saying this season of Big Brother is going to be "Super sized."

While we won't know the cast for quite awhile, Real Pass is offering the annual "Early Bird Special" for the Live Feed subscriptions. Big Brother Fans Blog has some more details here:
http://bigbrotherfansblog.com/2012/06/big-brother-14-live-feeds-early-bird_18.html

Suffice it to say, if you ARE planning on subscribing to the Big Brother live Feed, the Early Bird special is always the best deal. You can typically save at least $10 getting in early, and unlike a lot of time sensitive online offers, they always do raise the price once the show starts.

ABC's "Glass House" Cast Revealed


There has been a lot of controversy since ABC announced they would be doing a reality show called "The Glass House" that sounded very similar to CBS's "Big Brother."  14 people living in a house, competing for a cash prize, sounds very familiar.  CBS thought it was so familiar that they are even suing ABC over the show. 

Big Brother fans may look at it a different way, in that Glass House may give fans something to watch while anxiously awaiting the kick off of Big Brother 14 next month.  Glass House will feature live feeds on certain days of the week, and will feature more fan voting and interaction which will determine a lot of what goes on in the house. 

Now ABC has revealed the cast, and many people are commenting that the show doesn't look like the current Big Brother cast wise, but more like the early versions of Big Brother.  There aren't many model types, just more every day type people, which is what some Big Brother fans have wanted for the past few years.  Other fans prefer the good looking model types Big Brother has cast in recent years.  Also there doesn't seem to be anyone in the cast younger than 27, which will also give the show a different feel than Big Brother.  Maybe this show will be a good alternative that will gain fans who don't like the way Big Brother has cast over the last few years. 

The Glass House premieres on June 18th, but next week the voting and live feeds will begin online.  Hopefully the show will provide a good alternative if the show set up turns out to be good.  Take a look at the full cast for Glass House along with their bios on ABC.com.

The Amazing Race 20 Kicks Off with Big Brother Stars!

It's time once again for another season of The Amazing Race.  Hard to believe this is the 20th Race, and CBS has once again loaded it with a variety of teams battling it out for 1 million dollars.  They've even casted 2 of Big Brother's most talked about houseguests from the past couple of years, Brendon and Big Brother 13 winner Rachel.

The Big Brother team did pretty well in week 1, but still has a long way to go if they plan on winning the 1 million dollar prize.  The Amazing Race is probably the most fast paced reality game show out there, as the action never has a chance to slow down with the frantic pace of the teams racing against time to avoid being last.

Full coverage of the race can be found at The Amazing Race blog, as we all watch each week to see one more team eliminated from the game every Sunday until just one million dollar team remains.

WARNING: Big Brother Spoilers!

We watch the current season of Big Brother on CBS, Big Brother After Dark, and the Feeds. We watch all Big Brother 18 coverage and DVR it and watch it again. There will be posts about things we have seen from watching Big Brother 24/7. If you are a casual viewer of the CBS show-only or do not want to read any spoilers, do not read our posts dealing with After Dark and the Live Feeds.
