There are two different experiences, both called “Big Brother”.
One is the television show Big Brother, as the CBS producers present it to broadcast tv audiences, three times per week. But the other is what is actually going on in the Big Brother house; the experience of the house guests, unfiltered — or at least less filtered — by television editors.
Fetchland presents Ruining Big Brother. It’s less “spoiling” Big Brother and more pulling back the curtain, to ruin our collective illusions about reality television. Enjoy! Or better yet, recoil in horror…

The Veto competition player pick resulted with Natalie and Paulie joining Bridgette and the three nominees to play in the challenge. Because of the feeds, we already know Bridgette wins the Veto but it’s fun watching the houseguests scramble before the comp even begins; worrying about what might happen and what they’ll do based on possible results.
It’s a recipe competition involving ingredients and sequences with memory playing an important role. The fun part is that when they fail the bowls they mix their ingredients in explode in their face, covering them in colorful glitter. It’s particularly funny when Paulie explains how he’s going to do better than his brother did in this same competition just seconds before his bowl blows up in his face. When Tiffany loses, Frank, James, and Corey are a bit excessive in their celebration as can be seen in our featured photo this week. Speaking of excessive celebrations, Frank crushes Bridgette’s ankle during their cheering and she ends up on crutches, smiling. Then Bronte tells the, utterly defeated, Tiffany that she “did so well,” and “nice job,” because Bronte apparently mistook all those math classes for social skills lessons.
Next we see Frank telling Bridgette he won the Roadkill this week and the first one too. You know, the one where he put HER up for eviction. She then reaches the pinnacle of Bridgette weirdness when she thanks him for putting her up. She’s creepy AF right after too when she says, “Frank really knows best,” as if this is some kind of fifties family TV show – black, white and perfectly ominous. Then we see the Veto ceremony in which Bridgette doesn’t use the Veto. Paul makes a funny comment about the results in the Diary Room saying that, “Like most antibacterial soaps, he’s 99.9%” sure he’s staying in the house this week. And for once, a Big Brother houseguest is correct about that.
Meanwhile on the feeds things have been back and forth all week with the cage affecting the players a bit more every day. They’re climbing those walls in multitudinous emotional ways. Tiffany rarely leaves the bed and then when she does gets shunned at every turn. Still, even with her absence duly noted in every conversation, the tide turned in her favor anyway. After many many waffles, enough to cause a gluten catastrophe, finally, on July 13th at 10PM, a team of Keep Tiffany formed, with a seeming certainty to vote out Bronte. Composed of Zakiyah, Paulie, Corey, Michelle, and Nicole; the team talked and talked and talked and decided to tell NOBODY. They were so sure of it they said so many times before repeating it a few more. 100%. In fact, they seemed so certain that they actually TOLD Tiffany about it right after agreeing not to tell anybody. It’s a typical BB mind-fuck that’s often used to cement an alliance member into your clutches. See how loyal we are? See how transparent? We’re telling you everything when we could have said nothing. So, even though half of the “everything” is that not too long ago we were evicting you, just focus on the other half. OK?
Check back with us tomorrow for a full report on the live eviction and feeds from July 14th and our twitter @RuiningBB18.
