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...

User Reviews

Big Brother is the best reality show on TV
1 September 2005 | by WalkenwrshprSee all my reviews

If you want a reality show to watch during the summer, Big Brother has what your looking for.

What do you get when you put 14 strangers/ex-lovers/secret pairs in a house without deserted islands, the races across country, and the rose ceremonies? You get people who are willing to back-stab, cheat, deceive, and all out scream at each other because they have nothing better to do. watch the reality show that has what your looking for.

This show has the best drama without the extravagant b. s. of Survivor and the like. Tune in and you'll be surprised how fast you fall in love with characters and become part of the game yourself.

P.S. Will Kirby rules!!!
