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 BB TV Show Ep 3 we find out that Jozea’s delusions of grandeur continue even when he’s in the diary room because he says he “rules this house” and thinks targeting Nicole is meaningful even while on the block. So, Jozea’s unduly focused on offense even when defense is all anyone can really do when nominated for eviction. Meanwhile Da’vonne plays a solid fake friend with Jozea while slamming him in her DR sessions because our girl knows how to play the game. In fact, she builds up a bigger alliance to protect the veterans and picks allies well, narrowing her sites on the cage-matchers who actually KNOW Big Brother. Da’vonne/Day starts with Zakiyah and then Michelle soon follows suit. Next Da’vonne pulls in Corey and Tiff to round it out perfectly and they become the 8Pack Alliance – inspired by Corey’s toned tummy.


Jozea explains how he’s their messiah

The show then highlights the crucial element of this season feedsters have been discussing non-stop; many newbies really don’t know the game of BB at all. Specifically the ones not in the 8Pack alliance, other than Paulie who knows the game from his bro. Jozea knows Big Brother least of all the newbies. He walks around declaring that he’s coming after Nicole all day so it’s surprising he’s so stunned to be put up for eviction by her. Jozea also says about being on the block, “I’m not worried one bit because I know everybody in the house loves me,” snort. It’s as if he’s never seen even one episode of the show.


Paulie in the Roadkill Competition

Then the Roadkill competition we heard so much about on the feeds is finally revealed with the BB RV pulling into the backyard. Houseguests in track suits need to strip down to swimsuits while “driving” the RV. If they take a hand off the driving instruments while changing it speeds up their timer a ton and will make their total time used much greater. The winner of the challenge gets down to their swimsuits in the least amount of time. So, they try their damnedest to keep the buttons all pushed while stripping. It’s exciting to watch our cage-matchers get uber creative using body parts to push buttons. We already knew that Frank won and then put Paul up on the block with this new RK power. But it’s still fun to see when and how he finds out he won the challenge and then hides it, containing his excitement to share the news with only his 8Pack alliance.

As we already know from the feeds, the newbies all think they know who won and they’re all wrong. It’s funny when Jozea says it was Paulie. He knows it … and he’s always right. Nobody else among the newbies is quite so certain or quite so completely wrong. Their guesses are at least in the correct alliance. Meanwhile in other alliance news, Natalie makes a new, petite one with Bridgette and Bronte to make their shared all-girl team dreams from pre-show interview days come true. They call their alliance Spy Girls, Natalie = Flirty Spy, Bronte = Wifey Spy, and Bridgette = Spunky Spy. It doesn’t really make sense to us what makes Bronte a “Wifey” but we’ll go along with that part at least for now purely on faith that it means something. The Spy part, though… That’s all wrong. The whole time they’re “plotting their alliance” Tiffany is merely a few feet away and can totally hear them from the hammock. Meanwhile these “spies” don’t even notice her. So far the whole spying thing doesn’t fly.


Category4 in Pixels

Next we see Category4 receive their Mystery punishment. It’s the pixel nudie costumes they’ve gotta wear for a week. A mucho amusing collage of nudie pixel living, loving, and dancing makes us laugh before the show settles into a more serious mode to reveal Frank’s secretly selected third nominee – Paul. Jozea has the most upset reaction of everyone while Paul declares himself Bearded Rambo and pumps his arm in victory. It’s all in good show and this guy knows how to put one on, it seems.

The feeds were pretty uneventful yet again on Sunday, June 26th, with a brief bit of fun dramatics after an hour and a half of the POV meeting where Paul took himself off the block and then Bridgette was put up in his place. Some of the funny parts included Jozea calling himself the “glue that holds everybody together,” and “a motivational speaker,” arousing dead-eyed non-reactions from his cage-match peers. They then go off to whisper about it later with others, of course. The house division feels like a line drawn in the sand with each side slamming the other at every secret convo opportunity. Tiff, Vic, and Jozea get the most beatdowns of all, which is surprising considering that Paul and Bronte seem to be the most polarizing on the surface. But that’s the thing about the feeds… you really get to see below the surface. In the Big Brother cage match it’s about trusting your gut and the visceral reactions people get from living together are a powerful force. Instincts matter much more than tattoos or a piercing baby voice when assessing people. On a side note, Paul has the major hots for Bronte and even though she says she’s not into it, she’s not pushing his roaming hands away either.
