Oh Brother!


Well, you’ve got to hand it to the producers of Big Brother 6. Just when you thought they couldn’t possibly come up with a twist more anti-climactic than last summer’s “Project DNA” they go and prove you wrong. Ladies and gentlemen, I submit to you “America’s Choice” as the new title holder in the neverending battle for “least impactful and most pointless twist in a reality show.”
If they really had any guts and even a modicum of creativity, they would’ve attached a proviso to the original idea that America would be allowed to select a houseguest to re-enter the house. It would have stated, “The houseguest who wins America’s Choice and re-enters the house also automatically receives immunity for the week and cannot be evicted.” You know, give the returning fellow a chance to really shake things up and cause problems.
But, no. The Powers That Be, in their infinite wisdom (?), came to the decision that simply allowing the winner to walk back in the front door was enough of a bone to throw to the viewing audience and that no further action was necessary. As a result, we have yet another ho-hum “surprise twist” that started out as a really good idea but then failed quite spectacularly, spiraling to earth in a blaze of good intentions, crashing into the ratings basement.
So long, Kaysar. We hardly knew ye. You were my favorite; I voted for you to return. You should’ve kept your finger on that button, though. Never trust overbaked troll dolls masquerading as cheerleaders.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
