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...

Little people with big egos
9 October 2004 | by mm-39See all my reviews

I watch about a show and a half; When I could not sleep, and insomia is awful. No professionals on TV with no script or directing and it shows. Watching people jump rope, eat pies, and argue. One person screaming racism, the other with blue hair, and one acting like a slug. Sounds like the Ricki Lake show. The dumbing down of our times. Then people have a conversation on the love bed about about who was the badie on the earlier version of the show. The show is lame. I will say it again. The show is lame. Reminds me of work, were people act like idiots all day. There is no shock value here, and whatever shock there is becomes boring. Find better things to do with your time, read a book, wash your hair, do anything but watch this. 10 years from now no one will ever see this show on re-runs like Law and order. What will be on next, live lawn mowing! Stay way.
