Based on the Dutch series, thirteen strangers who are living in a studio-like house that's filled with cameras and microphones, compete in a series of physical and mental stunts, and some challenging trivia at a chance at $500,000 in this reality soap opera-like summer program. Thirteen of those house guests live in 13 different states. America will watch every single move they compete to be the last one standing, after having twelve house guests evicted. These strangers are the contestants who think they have absolutely nothing in common, and a few are in a shock for their lives. The house guests begin to introduce other people at the Big Brother house. It's the first time they will get to know each other and they're not allowed to say not one word with them until they are in the Big Brother house. The thirteen will be living in the same house for the following two months. They may either find their best friend or worst enemy in that group; and in the end, it's one men for themselves...

Dire...just embarrassing
28 June 2015 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

Well compared to the Uk, and even the Australian version of Big Bro, this is downright awful. First off, the host is unbelievably awful. Is she a robot? She has 0 personality and brings no fun to the show. Seriously, anyone or anything cpuld present better. Surely the USA can find a better host. Its not hard! The format is awful as well. Its set in a studio with tame crowds. It all seems to clean and boring. The UK show has crowds booing and cheering constantly. Much more of a vibe there. Housemates (in which is called houseguests in this show, which im not a fan of) go in ad a group so you cant hear the boos and or cheers for each and every housemate. This show is a much more bpring version of other versions around the world, making it unwatchable.
