Romance On TV: The Big Brother House Guests Split Up!

So they really threw the Big Brother house guests a curveball last night! A few days ago, Julie Chen, the show’s “host”, told the crew of couples that at some point an incredibly shrill alarm would sound, signaling that the house guests should gather in the living room for a very important announcement. After all, the Big Brother motto is “expect the unexpected” (and “don’t worry, I’m sure mom and dad aren’t watching the live feeds”). So last night, just after it was revealed that Alison and Ryan were the latest couple voted out of the house, that shrill bell did ring — whereupon Julie announced that they were now playing as individuals, giving the 9th season’s theme, “‘Till Death Do You Part” a whole new meaning. Because breaking up is like dying! Get it? Anyway, this is a welcome game play change for the viewers and the house guests, because, let’s face it, all of the couples so scientifically put together by the Big Brother matchmakers don’t really like each other (except my picks to go to the end, James and Chelsia) and the idea of sharing the big jackpot at the end must have been kind of a downer.

Romance On TV: Big Brother Is Exhaustingly Awesome

Living inside the Big Brother house is a bit like living life in fast-forward: so much more drama goes down in the span of one week than could ever go down in a year in a non-reality show star’s life. Frankly, the game itself (i.e. the “couples” vying for the million dollar prize) is not even the reason to watch, and frankly, the show itself isn’t worth watching either, considering that every moment of life inside the house is available through the Big Brother live feeds. These feeds are watched, transcribed, and posted in text and video form on quite a few blogs, so I’ve been doing most of my BB-obsessing online. So what’s gone down this week since we last left off? Find out, after the jump…

Romance On TV: Big Brother Plays Matchmaker

Forget the Millionaire Matchmaker! Julie Chen and the rest of the people behind my favorite summertime guilty pleasure, Big Brother, are looking to play Cupid for the first Winter season of the hit reality TV show. For the ninth season, the cast is totally single and ready to mingle — or as Julie puts it, “looking for love”. After a week’s worth of episodes (the show airs a whopping three times a week on CBS, plus nightly on Big Brother: After Dark on Showtime), I really think the house guests are really only looking to hook-up and fight. The cast is paired up in teams of two based on their romantic compatibility, but that has already made for some trouble. Partners Adam and Sheila despise each other; a real couple outside the house, Jen and Ryan, were paired up with other partners that were apparently more compatible; and a couple that recently broke up in real life were reunited as partners inside the Big Brother house to neither of their pleasure. But there has been some “showmancing”, much to the producers’ relief. Via the live feeds available on CBS.com, Jen and Ryan have been overheard gettin’ down and dirty in the bathroom, while partners Nat and Matt (aww, cute!) indulged in a little midnight canoodling. We can’t wait to see what happens next! [CBS: Big Brother 9] Keep reading »
