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...

Trivia

In season 1 Julie Chen announced the winner inside the house with the final 2 then making their way outside to a large crowd. Seasons 2-4 had the cast inside the house pulling their own keys while Julie remained in the studio and on the screen while the final 2 emerges to a small number of family and friends outside the house. Beginning with season 5 the cast joins Julie in the studio where she names the votes through the tv screen to the final 2 who are in the house and then emerge to a large crowd outside the house, which has stayed on every season since. In addition streamers fly when the winner walks out of the house starting with season 11. See more »

Value meal TV
4 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is like the 99 cent value menu--cheap, but bad for you, too! It has buns, meat (not in the complimentary sense), and plenty of cheese. You ate it because you only had a buck in your pocket, now you're sorry and want your buck and clean arteries back. Seriously, my whole family groaned through 15 minutes of this. At first, its badness was almost amusing--the train wreck you couldn't help but watch. Then, it just got pitiful because the characters were trite, one and all. We turned off the TV--not just changed the channel. Big Brother caused some horrible internal reaction that caused us to swear-off all TV--like a salmonella-laden burger turns you off food.
