'Big Brother': Watch the Zingbot and Kathy Griffin join forces to insult people

14 hours ago

Big Brother is a ridiculous television program. And at no point is it more ridiculous than when a sassy wisecracking robot named the Zingbot enters the house to start dishing out insults at all the contestants. Which is why we are completely obsessed with everything he does. Now, I’ve had my own personal run-ins with the Zingbot over the years. There was the time he compared Entertainment Weekly to toilet paper and the time he mocked my writing and personal income. But I simply can’t stay mad at the Zingbot. Plus, perhaps he’s mellowed since giving birth to the Baby Zingbot. »
