Big Brother, you’ve lost the plot

It’s official. Big Brother has lost the plot. I think I’m going to vomit.

MORE intruders. What is he thinking? Too much meth before the weekly meeting to discuss what’s going to happen in the following weeks? Why won’t they just let the house be as it is – housemates, weekly tasks, and just let the show be.

It does work, and viewers won’t get bored. I’ve read so many rave reviews about the episode where Jamie went insane (“I’M NOT CRYING!”) and how it was just what everyone has been waiting for. The viewers want to see more episodes like this! And hold on… that argument/bout of insanity had NOTHING to do with any of these twists and turns that Big Brother has thrown into the works, it’s just been housemate interaction.

I’m finding it really hard to keep optimistic about this series – and Australian Big Brother as a whole. I help run a website on the show and this year I’m finding it very hard to find anything good to say about this season.

I was changing my profile on the forums the other day and came across the “Favourite Housemate” field. I had to think long and hard about the housemates in the house and who I liked the most. I couldn’t think of anyone, it was hard to even remember most of their names. I don’t KNOW the housemates like I have in previous years. I hate to repeat myself, but too many twists and not enough time to just get to know the housemates.

This is really negative so I’ll end it now.

Oh wait, I just thought of something good. This ‘twist’ in the nominations – great! However, Big Brother interupting them and asking “WHY IS THAT PERSON BETTER THAN YOU? RAAA” is not great. And opening up the nominations with “For two points, who do you nominate as your biggest threat to win Big Brother, and why?” is just stupid. Let them say “I nominate x for two points because they’re my biggest threat.” The end, over and done with.

At least Travis got nominated.
