Well, the decidedly great Big Brother 14 season has drawn to a close, and while there was never really a clear-cut villain (some people pegged Frank, others Dan), the sheer amount of backstabbing, scheming, and ever-changing strategies truly put this cycle in the upper echelons. Sure, it can’t compete with the brilliance of season six, […]


A few years ago, my fellow blogger Ed Hill wrote some theory he had about reality TV. It was something called the “golden corridor” or the “golden stretch” or something like that. Basically, his theory was that certain reality shows peak midway through a season. In the beginning, the shows are awkward, finding their footing. […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Quack Pack Is Ready To Attack

Will the Quack Pack ever be able to get Frank out of Big Brother 14? Hard to say, but that doesn’t mean they won’t give it another college try. Yes, on Sunday’s episode of Big Brother, Ian pulled out an easy victory in the endurance competition, landing him a week in the Head of Household […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Double The Eviction, Double The Fun!

I’m back! For the moment. Sorry everyone, I’ve been working on some non-blog stuff that has totally monopolized my time. Despite that, I knew I just had to write something about this week’s double eviction episode of Big Brother, which was AH-MAH-ZING. I tend to love these “Big Brother Fast Forward” shows. They’re awkward, oddly-paced, […]


Ummmmmm… I’m fully aware that by the time I publish this Big Brother photocap, the next episode will have aired already on the East Coast. Oh well. Here’s all that really matters: Zingbot 3000 made its return, and this time, his spawn — Baby Zingbot — made an appearance too. Not going to lie, I […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade! (Or Dry Hump)

So much has happened since my last photocap of Big Brother 14. I took two episodes off, and I’d like to say it was to protest the ouster of Janelle, but honestly, I was just being lazy. I was, however, quite QUITE mad about Janelle’s eviction, but at the very least it came as a […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Goodbye Coaches, Hello Drama

Well, the coaches are dunzo on Big Brother 14, and I have to say that while I thoroughly enjoyed the idea of teams competing against each other, the ensuing chaos in the household has been a perfectly lovely alternative for me. The show has more or less been reset — as Chenbot happily declared on […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Reset It and Forget It

In a MOST. UNPREDICTABLE. AND SHOCKING way, the Big Brother house was turned upside down last night. Yes, America voted on whether or not the coaches would be allowed back into the game, and I can assure you that indeed America / CBS has declared it so! Memo to Big Brother: time to change the […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Who Will Save Your Soul (Patch)?

The gameplay sure is fast and furious on Big Brother where even the most minor interaction (usually stemming from Ian) seems to send huge ripples throughout the house. I won’t spoil what happened in last night’s show, but needless to say, we certainly aren’t facing the listless go-with-the-flow mentality that plagued the past two seasons. […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Tongue-Tied and Twisted

Well, it was another Sunday episode of Big Brother, which meant there wasn’t too much activity beyond nominations, but that’s aiiight. The producers gave us a few human interest segments such as Jenn’s coming out story (ie. pretty much the first things she’s said on camera ALL SEASON), and Ashley’s love of dream boards, which […]
