Storyline

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...

Quotes

[season 7, week 6, talking strategy in the diary room]
Will Kirby: ChillTown is the Beatles of this show. I'm the Paul McCartney and Mike Boogie is the John Lennon. Unfortunately Erika is still the Yoko Ono, she's been in this band entirely too long and she is gonna ruin our career if we're not careful about it.

don't spend your time watching this crappy piece of reality junk.
8 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

At first, i LOVED Big Brother, i would watch it every week and i even remember it back in the 2000's. the reality was good, showmances, production was what really made it watchable, fast forward into 2010's it gone down hill, REALLY DOWN HILL. the reality got shitty the cast makes me want to vomit, production is terrible, it made me stop watching this! trust me when i say please watch a reality game show that is actually watchable! (Amazing Race, Survivor) don't spend 1-2 hours of the night watching this crap! please! SCREW YOU BIG BROTHER! i hope you get cancelled! (honest truth). so i am giving this a 2 for all the reasons i mentioned. and to those who like this show, wow. just plain wow.
