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…

On the TV episode showmances blossomed and the Roadkill comp was clarified for us. Butt first… we saw Bridgette make her nominations after claiming to have “never expected this” even after obviously trying and then winning HOH.
The show gave some time to the Mama Day and Frank situation as far as his insensitivity and her reaction. Luckily the show handled it well and gave her a chance to talk a bit. Their portrayal was pretty fair in giving his perspective that they were just “fooling around” and then realizing that he was the only one having fun. He apologized.
There’s a reason why we have a need in our culture for “sensitivity training” and it would be a positive result overall if Frank’s behavior and the consequences (they want him OUT of the house) help highlight that need in every day life a bit more for people in general.
We see Bridgette nominate Paul and Tiffany as well as the subsequent eyerolls from each of them. The show also devotes time to the Corey/Nicole and Natalie/James showmance situations. Then it’s time for the Roadkill competition. It’s a horn blowin’ challenge called “Horn Star” with a sequence of horns to remember and copy the pattern within a time limit – much like the game Simon. As we already know, Frank wins the competition and nominates Bronte. When he tells the 8Pack their main conclusion after he leaves the room is that Frank’s dangerous and they should get him out. It isn’t likely Frank has a clue that their minds are shifting in this way.
Feeds-wise the houseguests didn’t even awaken until nearly three thirty in the afternoon on July 10th and even then, reluctantly. Their maximum comfort level has thus been achieved at this point. They feel at home. By four in the afternoon Paulie and Corey were confiding in Paul that they want Frank out soon because he’s wheeling and dealing all over the house. James walks in during the convo to join in the head-nodding. So, the news continues to spread. Meanwhile, in other news, Frank tells Bridgette about how he won the first Roadkill and put her up. So, now the 8Pack don’t have that blackmail bit of info in their back pocket anymore. It’s a bummer for them. In fact, not only does Bridgette already know, for some insane reason she even THANKED him for doing it. We may never figure that Bridgette out…
