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

Corey won Veto then heard lotsa “news”

July 16th brought the Power of Veto challenge and lots of subsequent whispering and scheming. Da’Vonne and Paul compete in the Veto competition with Paulie, Corey, Natalie, and Tiffany while Zakiyah plays host. The houseguests expected a dice-related challenge, so they’ve been practicing dice rolls continuously to prepare. Paulie and Tiffany even came into the house with dice game strategies ready. He coached Corey and Natalie in his methodology while Tiffany shared her practice tactics with Mama Day. But July 16th’s Veto isn’t a dice challenge at all, though there probably will be one eventually as they’re prevalent in the Big Brother competition archive.


Natalie’s cute post-Veto look

The Have-Nots for the week are James and Natalie because of their last place Team Unicorn status in the HOH competition. For some inexplicable BB reason their supplements for the week are baked beans, baguettes, and basil. Natalie eats a bowl of beans for breakfast and then says it’ll be cool when she blows out her butt during the POV competition. She then advises James about how they should eat more beans than bread through the bathroom door while he takes a dump, explaining that otherwise they’ll get constipated. Thus, Natalie and James seem to have completely skipped the whole fun and romantic stage of dating and just dove straight into the frank discussions of bowel movements stage.


Tiffany senses sketchiness

Corey wins the Veto and plans to take himself off which will mean the Roadkill winner has to secretly nominate someone new. That person, of course, is Tiffany. She’s in a Have-Not room bumper car near James in his respective bumper car when Day comes in and asks Tiffany who she’s going to put up in Corey’s place. Tiff says she doesn’t know and Day abruptly leaves, which Tiff then tells James seems mad sketchy. Right after that Tiffany tells Frank she’s going to put Mama Day up for nomination. She also tells him about the Fatal5 alliance. Paul comes in so Frank and Tiffany tell him about the alliances as well as all sorts of sketchy stuff about Mama Day scheming.


Chips and chatter in ridiculous outfits

Paul quietly collects the info and then immediately runs to tell the other side that Frank told him about the 8Pack and all the Mama Day dirt. He also buddies up with his bros in the HOH bed later, planning a detailed scenario in which he shouts a lot of F-Yous and wins a competition. Sounds fun, Paul! We love when you entertain us. Right after this Tiffany tells Corey Mama Day has been screwing with her behind the scenes during the whole game. Tiff reveals info about the 8Pack, Fatal5, and that she won Roadkill too. Then Frank joins the conversation along with silent Bridgette. Frank drops an allegorical/emotional bomb on Corey, saying he made a Final2 deal with Nicole.


Jacuzzi chat w/ Paul, Nicole, and Day

This leads to some awkwardness between Nicole and Corey for the afternoon but then they talk it out in the backyard later and it henceforth seems smoothed over between them. A bit afterward Nicole sits with Paul and Mama Day for ice cream in the jacuzzi and at one point Paul says that Frank and Tiffany are “going to try to use every piece of information to break us apart” which is exactly right. That’s precisely what they’re doing. Tiffany keeps swearing on her mother’s life etc. and then spilling every info bit, like a toddler with a tray of beads. Will it work? We don’t really care much because we’re just here to have fun and all this “blowing up people’s games” via Tiffany’s truth-telling creates popcornorific entertainment. Even if the other houseguests don’t believe Tiffany and Frank now… the seeds are sown. Thus, the tension and potential for further outbursts grows like weeds in the Big Brother garden of delights.
