BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Why Make A Big Move When You Can Sit Pretty?

Well, here we are — umpteen weeks into a once promising season of Big Brother, and we’re stuck with a dominant alliance that would rather pick off outsiders than think 1.5 steps ahead and make some big moves. It’s been the story of the summer, which has seen a passive minority slowly picked off by a […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Zach Attacked!

Well, we’re about halfway through Big Brother 16, and I’m continuing to love this cast, which is a good thing because the gameplay hasn’t been exactly thrilling. Don’t get me wrong: there’s been some great drama — obviously starting with Devin and followed by the Caleb-Amber-Cody love triangle. But with Devin and Amber evicted from […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Tongue Tied

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 […]

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

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 […]

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. It’s a shame since so much has transpired, but here’s to hoping the producers will futz […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Tears of a Bro

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, […]

BANTER BLENDER #94: Catching up with Big Brother 15 Winner Andy Herren

It’s “Big Brother” season, and what better way to kick off the latest edition than by interviewing last year’s winner? Join Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) as he welcomes Andy Herren (twitter.com/andyherren) to The Banter Blender to discuss all things BB: life in the house, life outside the house, relationships with other cast members, thoughts on the […]

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 […]
