Just a reminder to all of you Big Brother fans out there! It starts in one more month! 4 more weeks! 31 more days! 754 hours, 7 minutes and...ok, I am not motivated enough to count the seconds! LOL! The only thing slightly more exciting to me, than BB10's premiere, right now is the release of "Breaking Dawn", the 4th book in the "Twilight" series by Stephenie Meyer. LOL! That doesn't come out until August 10th and, I will be counting on several things to keep my mind off of that release. One of them being BB10! LOL! Are you all getting excited! Or, just mildly looking forward to it? LOL! And, by it, I mean BB10's premier. Not Stephenie Meyer's release of "Breaking Dawn". That is sort of my newest obsession! Feel free to get obsessed by the story in that series too! LOL! I can't imagine anyone who couldn't get obsessed by the story! But, that is neither here nor there! LOL!

I can't believe I haven't heard anything until now about this. Boy I really hope they have a good cast this year. I want to see a good variety of people, old, young, smart, dumb, maybe not so many dumb, successful, struggling. I mean I didn't like last season with so many young people. My parents used to watch but stopped watching once the show when young and provocative. But I guess that's what sells. Even after all that, I will still be watching of course. Just gotta watch.

LOL! I hear ya! I loved the winter season but, sheesh! They sure did pick a heck of a bad cast! Especially Natalie! She was fun to watch but, ugh...I could only tolerate her because I love the show so much. I think if it were any other show, I would have ignored it and not bothered to watch it if Natalie was on it! LOL! She had me wanting to injure myself! Rip my ears off because of her voice. Tear my eyes out because she was so hard to look at! Slap myself since I couldn't slap her, for all the God talk and each and every stupid thing out of her mouth! LOL! So, I am looking forward to the new cast. Hopefully they have had more time to fit a good cast together. People who actually know the game and have real strategy. People who can leave God out of it because...I hate to be the one to tell them but, I am pretty sure that since BB is a game centered around "greed" for money, God wouldn't have anything to do with it! He'd be going against his own code of ethics and morals! So, yup...for the love of Him, I hope BB has refrained from picking any Bible Thumpers for the show this season! LOL! I wouldn't mind a mix of young and old. I would like to see more hot guys though! For the past couple seasons, they have sort of left the ladies with not much to ogle at! At least, IMO! Nick was nice! But, I was not a fan of Matt's or Alex's. LOL! Yes! I am a bit shallow! I want some eye candy for my gender! LOL! I actually think that my Mom might follow through with her threat this year and not watch BB. She has been getting more and more tired of how amoral everyone is each season. I just think that is all a part of BB. You can't have people not stabbing each other in the back. It is a game. And, the crazier and more disgusting they get, the more fun we, as the audience, have watching them make fools of themselves! It is a voyeurs sport! But, they are starting to turn my Mom's stomach! LOL! So, she may follow through with her threat this season! But, not me! Like you said, "Just gotta watch"!

My mom hated seeing the girls walking around in their bikinis and the guys acting like a bunch of immature idiots. When they had older people on there they had real discussions and relationships. And the decisions they made at least made some sense.

LOL! Yes I am! I have seen other BB's from around the world on cable but, I can't recall if yours is one of them. You might see if you can find ours on your cable also. I did just do a search on the TiVo guide to see if I could find yours but, there are not listings for it. So, I think that the only time we see other BBs on cable is after have already aired in their homes. Anyway, enjoy yours for the month is has left! I hope whomever you are cheering for wins!

If you go to youtube and type in big brother 10 usa several things will come up and you can see bb10 usa advert #2. The show might be interesting after seeing that. I also read the other day that there will be another winter bb, if so then they should have plenty of time to pick good people for the show. Can't wait for the season to begin.

You are very welcome, and be sure to check out the song with it, I'm sure it has something to do with the season also, a "hint" in there somewhere. It is an oldies song, So Happy Together by the Turtles. Not sure if they will be strangers or each couple will know one another, reading conflicting stories.

It has a lot of fans..but im not one of them!! i think its more a programme for the younger people ...a friend of mine who is a lot younger she religiously ewatches it and gets really into it...almost living it with them!!

LOL! You should give it a try anyway! I wouldn't say it is for the younger audience! But, you could be right. I think that it is for anyone who likes to cheer for one person while hoping that someone you can't stand is the next out the door! LOL! My Mom watches it too. Although, she has gotten so disgusted with their antics that she may not watch it this year. But, she has said that every year so, we'll have to see! LOL! And, your friend has good taste in TV! LOL!

Hello RK and AW! RK, I enjoyed the winter BB because there wasn't an inch of shame in any of them! LOL! But, I do hope that they have a cast more worthy of the game this season. And, you should most definitely check out Stephenie Meyer! I never thought someone could top Dean Koontz in my mind. I love Dean Koontz! But, Stephenie...at least for right now, topped Dean Koontz as far as favorite author in my mind. AW...I felt the same way about Nat...fingernails on my nervous system! I like that! That explains it perfectly! LOL!

LOL! I guess that it isn't for everyone! And, I don't recall if Australia's was one of the BB from other parts of the world that I got to catch on cable. I have seen about 3 other versions of BB from other parts of the world. But, they are still fairly similar to the US version. Anyway, I just love to figure out who I want to win it and cheer them through the entire game...as far as they can get. And, I love the frustration when my favorite leaves and the ones I dislike the most get to stay! LOL! Sorry that you don't care for it! I guess it isn't for everyone! LOL!

rotflmao Cortjo, yes I am anxiously looking forward to BB10. How can Inot be when I have weekely reminders from you :))) if one was not excited your enthusiasm would rub off on one! I have not had the pleasure of reading the books, the series yet but if you say it is good, I am inclined to trust you as our tastes in entertainment seem to have much in common.

LOL! Hey AW! I hope that my enthusiasm rubs off on others! LOL! Especially if it might bring an even bigger audience to BB so that it stays around longer! LOL! And, I hope you do read Stephenie Meyer's stuff! It really is magnificent! She has a way of throwing you right into the moment! If you do decide to read that series, let me know! And then let me know what you thought!

I have the date marked on my calendar:Friday, July 13, 2008. It is so fascinating to watch seemingly ordinary people interact in such a confined space for such a long time ... 3 months!! I could never stand being cooped up with anyone for that length of time, let alone a lot of strangers who are there to lie and manipulate in order to win the prize(s). I get hooked on watching the YouTube postings of the 24/7 live feeds. There are amazing/fascinating/boring clips of the HGs that could never be aired. The one voice that was even more irritating than Natalie's was Sharon's when she was talking to the guinea pigs. Talk about grating! But that was not obvious on TV as it was rarely shown.

LOL! Sharon's voice was annoying when she would talk...period! LOL! But, you're right. When she would talk to the gps it was like someone stabbed glass into my ears! LOL! BTW...July 13th is a Sunday! That is the premier! I waver as to whether I could handle being cooped up in a house with strangers for 3 months. I think I could. But, then again...I like to get out and about on the weekends so, I might go stir crazy! LOL!
