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...

I LOVE this show!
19 December 2000 | by wileyjpSee all my reviews

Survivor has nothing on this show! This show was funny, entertaining, and the house guests were awesome. Brittany, Josh, Curtis, and Eddie were my favorites, though. And the "romance" between Josh and Brittany was so darn CUTE! They way they were always together....they were so cute. Brittany was awesome and extremely likeable, and so was Josh (he was so cute!). Curtis, well, you just had to like him, and Eddie was so funny! I really, really dislike George. When Brittany got kicked out, I was so sad. I cried. I'll admit I got too emotionally attached to the house guests, but how could you not with such a good show? 10/10 stars P.S. Let's all start a conspiracy against George!!! Save Brittany! Wiley's sis
