BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Speak of the Devin

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.

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

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?

Big Brother 16 Cast Preview!

Well, it’s that time of year again. The air is warm, the birds are chirping, and the days are getting longer (although, technically they’re getting shorter now, which is the exact opposite of what I said, but what’s life without contradictions?). What I’m trying to say is that it’s Big Brother season, and I derive […]
