Grosser Bruder

A few thoughts on this year's Big Brother

  • Logan (twin brothers secretly swapping in the house) turns out to be a good idea. It's interesting to watch them cope with the gaps in their knowledge. I hope they make it through their two week test period (and then both go into the house). Man, it must be boring in that isolation room for the twin who's currently 'off'.
  • 'Hotdogs' is an unpleasant character who's intelligence is far outweighed by his libido. I hope he gets booted at first 'tribal council', but I doubt it will happen.
  • Nelson & Kate are both likeable. He's my vote for the win.
  • I reckon Gianna is the imposter. She seems like a desperate out of work actress.
  • Angela, Michael and Tim are all a bit old and mature for the others. Especially Tim - I'm suprised he ended up in there.
  • Dean, Glenn, Michelle and Christie are all pretty generic 'house-filler'.
  • Constance & Geneva are immature and I imagine they're pretty annoying. Constance is my guess for first one out of the house. Bi-curious Geneva really lacks self-worth.

Hotdogs. Get rid of him.

After watching a bit of live internet streaming, it seems like the housemates spend all day lying on their beds bragging about their sex lives. It must get awfully boring. I guess the more intelligent housemates (who aren't always in bed) don't talk about such titillating topics.

It's interesting to see the difference in personalities once people settle in a bit. It's like they put on their super-personalities for the video profiles and the first few hours in the house. There was a noticable change in Christie who planned to run the house but now spends most of her time in bed whinging. I wonder if this effect is due to their social stature amongst their friends versus the overbearing personalities in the house.


  • I wanted to like Kate, but I think she's scatty, moody and self-centred. Tim would have to be the nicest by far, though both Logans seem reasonable and so is Michael. Haven't made up my mind about Dean yet. I think I dislike Nelson a fair bit and the same for Glenn. That Geneva is just a shock-jock although she has potential. Say no more about Gianna, Christie, Constance and Michelle - just awful. -DFV

  • I just read some of the online diary and realised that Kate can hold her own in a conversation about welding. She is my new favourite female! -D

  • No comments on 'Hotdogs'?

  • Hotdogs said it all on tonight's show: "cos I'm a thinker". Anyone who says that needs to think a little more about why they are saying it. He seems to go for the extended hug/grope at every opportunity - in other words, he's a man cast in your own image Ash. -DFV

  • I pretty much want to bash Christie, pretty much most of the time.. though I thought she was good value last friday night where she got polaxed and in trouble repeatedly with BB. I think I'd be pretty dark if I was a housemate and she'd caused restrictions on the alcohol. There seems to be an inordinate amount of crying being done which annoys me no end.

    The two new chicks that are to enter the house on Wednesday seem like your run-of-the-mill eye candy types that ooze plastic-confidence. I expect they will end up crying pretty soon.

    My early tip, Shearer is still looking strong.

  • I think the Shearer is a pretty safe bet. You're right about the crying too. It's non-stop.

    I don't mind a bit of Christie. She comes out with some great comments.

    She sings stupid songs too.

    In fact I think she's my favourite these days.
