BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Tongue Tied

big-brother-_0007_bb-08.jpg.jpg

Few things have been as bizarre as Jocasta’s speaking in tongues on Sunday’s Big Brother. However, in an episode short on drama, we certainly had many record-scratching moments. There was Jocasta, of course, who has emerged as a slightly deranged woman of God. When not busting out a funky “d-d-d-d-d-d-d-dd” rapture, she’s lately been prone to over dramatic wails of joy that seem more akin to surviving a bomb blast than a veto ceremony.

Also in the head-scratching department was Zach opening up a dialogue with Frankie by stating that yes, he will bang him. I’ll just assume that was an inside joke between the two pseudo lovebirds (a showmance I wholeheartedly endorse). And then there was Cody, whose infatuation with Zac Efron makes Caleb’s obsession with Amber look quaint at best. Yes, this is a kooky cast, and I like them so much that I didn’t even mind that the only dust up of the episode was some kerfuffle about beds. I couldn’t even really follow what was going on — basically, no one wanted to sleep with Victoria because she’s annoying (allegedly, she claimed on the feeds that she was once abducted by a crow) — and one thing led to another and suddenly Brittany was in total bitch mode and blah blah blah. Who cares. The whole thing landed her on the block with Victoria, and now they face an uncertain fate.

But for now, here’s the photocap:

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Knock-Knock-Knockin’ on Devin’s Backdoor

bb-15.jpg

It looks like Devin’s getting set up for the backdoor on Big Brother 16. But let me drop this bombshell: I kind of don’t want him to go. He’s truly awful, but oh so entertaining. I’d rather see Caleb or Jocasta go home before this asshole bro. And wouldn’t that turn everything upside down if that happened? Besides, if Devin winds up on the block with Caleb, the house might be wise to take out a huge target in the cowboy. And if Devin winds up against Jocasta, the house might be wise to… uh… reduce the bow tie presence in the game? Okay, my reasoning is wobbly. I just want to see more crazy histrionics from the big buffoon. But in the meantime, here’s the photocap…

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Speak of the Devin

bb-26.jpg

I’m loving Big Brother so much, and I’m just sad that the live shows have such lengthy voting processes and HOH competitions because it means we get to see so little of what happens in the house post-Veto, pre-vote. It’s a shame since so much has transpired, but here’s to hoping the producers will futz with the show chronology and include some of the good stuff on Sunday’s episode. Or better yet: how about CBS just makes the live show 90 minutes instead? The Chenbot can handle it.

In the meantime, here’s the latest double photocap:

iHeart Radio Puts On The Ultimate Pool Party, Minus The Pool

iheartradio-02.jpg

Is there anything more fun than watching a youth-oriented broadcast and slowly realizing you are not the plucky 22-year-old you still fancy yourself to be? Such was the case last night when I found myself viewing the iHeart Radio Ultimate Pool Party courtesy of The CW network. Now, to be fair, this wasn’t a totally accidental occurrence. I did receive compensation to watch the show, which of course sounds shady, but daddy’s gotta earn some money! It’s all good though because just as Jewel’s hands are small but still her own, so are my thoughts about this daffy concert.

Now, in case you weren’t part of the .82 million people who watched the show last night, fear not. I’m happy to fill you in on everything you missed. Soon, you too will feel as if you were right there — (and by right there, I mean sitting on my couch, watching this show at midnight while you battle a taco-induced food coma).

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Tears of a Bro

bb-15.jpg

You guys, Big Brother 16 is so good. It’s only been a week and change, but we already have an evil alliance (The Bomb Squad) with a douchey leader (Devin) and perhaps mentally unstable sidekick (Caleb). Or is it the other way around? Either way, all seasons with great villains usually lead to wonderful drama, and what’s even better for us is that we have an unlikely trio of heroes in our midst too. That would be Christine, Nicole, and Hayden — three goofballs who joined forces with so much nervous laughter that I couldn’t help chuckling along on my couch. These are my people.

Heroes? Villains? What more can we ask for? I guess some drama. But guess what? We have that too!
