Big Brother: Vote to Evict or Vote to Save?

LEWIS

Vote to Save will result in Lewis surviving this weeks public eviction – but at what cost to the format and viewer trust?

It’s Day 34 in the Big Brother house and producers have finally decided to meddle in the game.

Last night, Big Brother announced a poll in the app that could “change the game”. Upon entering the app, viewers are asked the following:

“Once again the power is in your hands. What do YOU want, vote to EVICT or Vote to SAVE? Your choice will affect this week’s first public eviction vote and remain in place for public votes for the rest of the series. The poll closes on Wednesday 17th October at midday. #YouDecide”

Big Brother Housemate Rankings Day 34

It’s genuinely not OK how quickly this series is going by. I’m loving this series in a lot of ways – although it’s not been without its teething problems by trying to focus heavily on game play.

I love the game play dynamic, but sometimes I feel like they focus the edit so heavily on game play chat it takes away from the primary format of the show which is watching a group of people from different backgrounds mix.

The age range of the housemates this series has been a drawback for me too. Read the rest of this entry

Big Brother Housemate Rankings Day 22

It’s Day 22 and somehow this is my first housemate rankings. I can only apologise! Life has been mega busy as many of you will have seen I’ve barely been tweeting.

Life is getting a bit less busy now so hopefully I’ll be tweeting more now.. I know you’re all DISTRAUGHT without me.

But lets get to the point, here’s my first housemate rankings! Read the rest of this entry

A Call To Arms to Fans: Save Big Brother UK

wantyou.pngUnless you’ve been living under a rock for the majority of this year, you will no doubt have heard that Channel 5 are yet to sign a contract for any more series of Big Brother or Celebrity Big Brother after 2018.

If that’s to change – Big Brother needs you. WE need YOU.

Very recently, the Channel 5 big boss Ben Frow stated that, although negotiations are not are, he is “planning for a year without Big Brother”. Signalling the end to an 18 year franchise which has been shown to still have a lot of life in it, unless another, more worthy broadcaster, signs it up. Read the rest of this entry

REACTION: Roxanne Pallett’s Jeremy Vine Interview

JEZZARoxanne Pallett, after walking from the Celebrity Big Brother house on Friday night, has just made her first media appearance and interview on the brand new Jeremy Vine show (on Channel 5, funny that).

Before I even get in to what she said, I’d like to make a point. One of the panelists (who admits he’s never seen the show, Big Brother or Celebrity Big Brother and therefore doesn’t have the first clue what he’s talking about) in the interview accused Big Brother of essentially creating this drama on purpose and profiting from it.

I would like to make it very clear that Big Brother are not the ones who wanted Roxanne Pallett on the Jeremy Vine show, and they are certainly not the ones who want her back on THEIR show tonight to be interviewed by Emma Willis. Read the rest of this entry

My Big Brother House Tour!

Back in 2013, the National Trust partnered with Big Brother in a publicity stunt of sorts and opened the doors to the Big Brother house to the public for the first time.

I was one of the lucky few to take a spot and fulfilled a bit of a dream by walking in to the very house I’d been watching for, at that point, 12 years! (Of course, series 1 and 2 were filmed in a different location entirely). Read the rest of this entry

Confessions of a Big Brother Superfan

My name is Lewis ‘LJAY815’ Griffiths, and I am a Big Brotherholic.

Since the age of 10, I have spent the last 18 years gleefully obsessing over the most exciting and authentic reality TV show that has ever graced our planet. Some would say that’s a bit sad. No.. MOST would say that’s a bit sad… But hey, that’s been me!

During the 2000 to the late naughties era, I felt like I was the only one. Sometimes dropping in to the Digital Spy Big Brother forums to see that there were others out there who analysed the show in every little detail, and lived and breathed the live feed. But it wasn’t until Twitter came in to existence that I really got to see that I wasn’t alone.

There are loads of us! All with wildly different opinions on the housemates and the show itself, and I LOVE it. Read the rest of this entry
