Big Brother 10, Episode 2 – Brian Overplays His Hand, Ollie Bags a Babe

July 16, 2008

Forgive me for doing these Big Brother reports, I’m quite sure they won’t last for each and every episode, particularly given the fact that the show comes on three times a week, but tonight was a pretty decent show.

For those of your that watch the show, read on. The rest of you..well, do what you gotta. But anyway, last night was like a text book example of what not to do during the first week of the show. I mean, look at the smug look on this cat, topped off with that “I’m a pure dick” hat piece.

Brian, an arrogant and fairly stupid prick, thought he was the puppet master because he was pulling the strings of an old man who probably has no business on the show to begin with.

But homey thought he had it all figured out like he was just going to come into Big Brother and run the table without ever having to show a little discretion or use any subtle strategy. Like he was just going to power through the whole deal and nobody would know any better. Now look at him, perfectly casted as the BB10 Douche Bag Extraordinaire.

Bottom line in Big Brother is that early on, you just sit back and let things happen and play the cards you’re dealt. Brian is out here trying to make power moves with little to no leverage and a house full of people who’ve watched the game like anyone else. And true to form, that sell out Libra WORKED her yatch magic and got Ollie to betray his alliance. Dog, was it just me or was that chick standing about 6’9″ and weighing in at 228, because she was literally looking down on Ollie when she was spitting her game.

By the way, can someone explain to me what’s up with the back of that alleged hair she has? Say what you like, but it looks extremely suspect to me. And if you believe that a mother of 5 month old twins shouldn’t be on a 3 month long game show, then you’ll really think a mother of young twins shouldn’t be on a 3 month long game show rocking a damn bikini… Jesus.

Why does she even own a bikini? Sorry, but this show is about eye candy and that does not include chicks who just happen to look like gummy bears, ya dig? I mean, wild Renny saw that gut hanging out of them big draws and was besides herself.

And yes, I would do anything to get this picture of her crazy ass into this post. ha.

Moving on, what about this cat Ollie and the game he’s played thus far? One thing I will say about Ollie, he’s got a talent for survival and while he was diffusing that little mini meltdown Libra and April were putting on him, he quietly wrapped up what is arguably the baddest chick in the house.

Not all that impressed you say? Ok, but wait until you hear her little talk about her all natural USDA, kid tested, mother approved J game. In this era of juicing and gelling, you gotta respect an honest pair, right?

And if Ollie is doing this on Monday:

This cat will be righteously (after all he is a preacher’s son) banging out come Friday. But nothing he does in the house can justify that god awful hat he rocked on the first day.

Horrible. But he cleaned it up…a little. I think my man has LL Cool J syndrome, meaning he knows that he looks roughly 87.5% better with a hat than he does without one.

Now Ollie, I know you’re an Ex D1 defensive back, so you probably don’t need any pimp lessons. But when you’ve got a big fish like this on the line, don’t try to reel that sucker in too fast. Be patient my man. Lake Rule Number 22 “Make ‘Em Wait”…at least until Saturday morning.

Honestly, the best part of this show is the “show behind the show” if you will. The stuff that goes down in the house that doesn’t fit into the pre-packaged CBS storylines. The the fact that Steven, the gay cowboy, called Libra “the colored girl” as soon as the ‘Big Brother After Dark’ Cameras went off.

That’s right, ol Brokeback cliche’ here is throwing around the racial insults on the third day. Nice. The worst part, my first thought was that the race obsessed “one white child and one black child” Libra probably deserved it since she can’t stop talking about her white husband, her interacial marriage, her interracial children (which I haven’t gotten a really clean look at the “white” one, but I’m sure doesn’t look all that white. Maybe white enough to pass, but black enough so Black people know the kid is one of us. Like that Bob Barr out of Georgia…I see you…and that nose…and those lips.) The hilarious thing, when I heard there was a gay cowboy in the house as well as a dude named ‘Memphis’ in the house, I was sure they were one and the same. The funny thing? They are two different dudes. By the way, there is no way in hell I’m entering the words “gay cowboy” into Google merely for the sake of entertaining you people. I’ve got a pretty good feel for what should and should not be entered into search engines thank you very much.


Big Brother 10: Season Premiere Review

July 14, 2008

Well well well…if it aint one of my favorite reality tv shows back on the air, BIG BROTHER.  Man, I’ve often told Brock, if there is one reality tv game I’d do, it’d be Big Brother.  I mean, just breaking cats down mentally, tricking them into icing down their friends and playing politics based purely on my powers of persuasion…that’s me.  Survivor is great, but without gel to smooth my hair down, I’d already be at half strength from jump.  And while Lake despises the metro-sexual, which is really a nice way of calling a cat gay, I keep shit too pretty to have bugs, rats and dirty hippies crawling on my while I’m catching a Z or three.

Nah, if I did a reality show, I’d definitely be doing Big Brother and I’d certainly be following the Chill-Town model with ala Will and to a lesser extent, Mike Boogie.  I still love those guys.

So I peeped this first episode and mostly I was underwhelmed.

But that’s ok, because I felt the same way about Big Brother 9 and that shit ended up being INSANE.  So I’m sure it will be fine.  The short of the first show is that they went ahead and picked the Head of Household on looks alone.  Naturally, the old dude, Jerry, won given that generally speaking, everyone else in the house looked exactly the same.  And the old dude was asked to verify, which he happily did, whether some J’s were fake or real….I liked that about him.  No quit.

Hey, who knows, maybe there is hope for John McCain after all.  Anyway, the old dude rolls up into the HOH room and we see the obligatory pic of him in his Korean War get up, then some young buck comes in and basically tricks him into picking his two nominations, a crazy broad from New Orleans that everyone thinks is annoying and a wild professional body builder.  Hey, we’ll see.  It’s basic Big Brother, antics.  Do you get rid of the annoying chick who scarily slid on a wig/head band combo?

Yuck… Or do you out the potentially threatening meathead?  I say off the meathead while you’ve got a shot, plus annoying chicks who ruffle people’s feathers are always good for everyone else in the house.  Keeps the eyes off them.  Oh and we had the sell out sister on display and that’s always a good thing.

And by good thing I mean terrible.  Fine, you’re with a white dude, but you don’t have to be completely defined by it.  I mean, just play it cool.  This chick gets in the house five minutes and suddenly is babbling about her “fair skinned” daughter and the fact that she’s got twins, one a blue eyed “white baby” and the other a “black baby, that looks like (her)”.

AND?  I got a dog that looks like the Men in Black pooch only different, so the fuck what?  Look, nobody cares about your sold lifestyle, your extra light skinned 2 out of 3 children or the fact that your kids have different skin colors from any of the versions of Michael Jackson.

You know who cares about shit like that?  Chicks who have MAJOR issues with the fact that they’re sold.  And I know what you’re thinking, “Lake, why so harsh, maybe she just said it in passing”… nah, I went over to the broad’s profile and she’s got it in there too.  Meanwhile, her twins are only 5 months old and she’s running off to play a Reality TV game?  Perfect.  Why’d you wait so long?  You should have been on Big Brother 9, taken the spike from both Crazy James and Parker and then you’d really have something to talk about when you first meet people.

What kind of parent, let alone a mother, leaves her extra light skinned blue eyed baby and “looks just like her” black child all alone to deal with their first months of life?  I mean, what are they going to drink in lieu of breast milk, Gatorade G2?  “It’s good because my mama like it and if my mama like it, I like it…”  AHNT haa  That’s a horrible commerical by the way, D Wage.. Just awful.   And with their mother gone, whose going to pass along those all so important color issues to the next generation of sellouts and self haters?

Anyway, I’m pretty amp’d for Big Brother.  My tivo was looking pretty dry and anemic, so this should definitely give it a boot along with Generation Kill, From G’s to Gents (lol) and I Love Money.  If yall think of any other shows I need to add to my list, please shout me a holler.
