How Did 'Big Brother' Manage To Give Us Such A Bad Episode?

9/14/2015 9:13am EDT
How can we go from a week full of amazing episodes to one of the worst Big Brother episodes of all time? Last week’s episodes were so great because they highlighted everything that’s fun about the show: over the top characters acting like dumb competitions are life or death, paranoia creating chaos, and editing that illustrates how ridiculous these people can be. Even with the bafflingly stupid decision to keep habitual competition loser Julia over showmance paired comp beast Liz, the episodes were still fun and well produced.

But this episode sucked all of the fun out of Big Brother in so...

'Big Brother': Memorable Moments From Week 12 Veto

9/10/2015 9:59am EDT
This episode was SO good. It has everything that makes an amazing episode of Big Brother, including blowout fights, tense competitions, and remarkable strategic moves. Not to mention it featured many of the season’s antagonists sobbing over being in such bad positions. Too bad it came so late into the season.

It’s funny that this episode comes directly after Les Moonves made comments in the press about this season’s casting being a disappointment. He couldn’t be more wrong. This was the best cast of Big Brother in a very long time. There are no filler contestants and nearly everybody has h...

Here Are The Top Moments From Last Night's 'Big Brother'

9/8/2015 9:30am EDT
With almost every likeable character in BB17 gone, the last few weeks of the season are going to be less about rooting for somebody. Instead, the joy from the rest of the season will come from watching the downward spiral of an alliance who have barely thought about what would happen when it came down to just a few players left in the game. Vanessa, up until now, has been fine going to the end with a showmance and twins. Steve refused to make a move against twins. Austin barely seems worried about Liz choosing Julia over him. And who knows what Johnny Mac ever thinks.

'Big Brother' Recap: The Show Needs A Massive Shakeup

Big brother
Double evictions used to be exciting. The original concept was shortened week, introduced in season 5, in which a whole week’s worth of game was done over a couple of days. Then the fast forward was introduced, where everything was done in the span of one episode. In the past, it has resulted in finally getting out big players who formerly dominated so that the underdog can have a chance to win. Often times, the unexpected happens or something viewers have been dying to see, from Keesha getting rid of mortal enemy Ollie in BB10 to Jeff seeing his comeuppance for his demanding entitled seaso...

'Big Brother' Recap: The Return Of Zingbot

'Big Brother' Review: Ranking And Analyzing The Zings Of BB17
Zingbot has become an essential rite of passage for any Big Brother cast mate. It’s everything that the show should be: cheesy entertainment that pokes fun at the ridiculous people that choose to be filmed 24/7. In the past, it’s even served as a wake-up call to certain players. In Big Brother 14, Danielle realized she might be looking like a stalker to her no-mance partner Shane. It only ramped up her obsession. In BB15, Andy’s zing was about him leeching onto Amanda’s game, causing him to rethink his strategy and ultimately win the game. In the end, Zingbot—the dad joke loving man in a pl...

Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe may not be on Dancing with the Stars this season, but there may be another reality show in her future that includes her fiancee Shawn Booth.

Kaitlyn and Shawn, who have been enjoying a life of leisure since last month's final rose ceremony aired on ABC, recently tweeted about appearing as a couple on CBS' The Amazing Race. On Sunday, a fan tweeted that the Bristowe and Booth should be part of the cast of the adventure reality series — Shawn thought it was an "amazing" idea.

'BB17' Follows Same Predictable Formula

8/24/2015 9:04am EDT
Now becomes the time that Big Brother 17 becomes dreadfully dull and predictable. The moment Austin won HOH, it was a given that this week would be a dud, much like his Judas persona. And to think, just a few weeks ago it felt like the season had warmed up to an exciting split in the house. However, since everybody is in an alliance with everybody and nobody seems to realize it, the season just drags on. And every episode is practically the same, following the same predictable formula.

The formula goes as follows:

First, the competition section:

One by one, each remaining houseguest remi...

‘BB17’: Best Moments From Last Night’s Week 9 Eviction

8/21/2015 8:37am EDT
Liz’s entire HOH run has been a dud. The Austwins alliance is frustrating to watch because they’re a strong trio that nobody has bothered to so much as nominate. When the majority alliance is in power, as they have been most of this season, nothing interesting comes from those episodes. The nominations stayed the same. There was no backdoor target. There was barely any scheming, no fighting, and no campaigning.

It’s telling that the best weeks’ worth of episodes were the ones where James and Becky were HOH. Those are players that are willing to make bold moves. Meanwhile, Vanessa is the on...

Recap: 'BB17' Key Moments From Last Night’s Episode

8/20/2015 8:54am EDT
How desperate were the Big Brother editors to make Johnny Mac the star of this season? Until recently, he’s done nothing of note, despite being heavily featured in nearly every episode. Now that he’s a target and in the cross hairs of Vanessa, he’s the star of the episode. Unfortunately, despite being one of the first in the house to catch on to Vanessa’s antics, John is a less than impressive player. Entertaining, sure, but not the power player that we all hoped he’d be. Seriously, what is this guy thinking?

Meanwhile, the other star of the season, Vanessa, is on a downward spiral that sh...

The Most Memorable Moments From Last Night’s 'Big Brother'

8/17/2015 9:17am EDT
Last week on Big Brother was a big old mess. Not only does the house miss out a golden opportunity to get rid of the scariest player in the game, but Steve pulls out the most baffling choices during the double eviction. The episode after double eviction is usually a good catch up on what truly went down. It’s meant to fill in the blanks on what couldn’t be shown during the live show. However, besides Steve’s cry baby antics, we barely get to see what went on behind the scenes. All around it was a pretty disappointing episode.

Here are the most memorable moments from the Week 9 HOH and Nomi...
