Big Brother is, well at least was, a very popular reality TV show. Starting back in 1999, Big Brother has lasted for a remarkable 11 years, practically a miracle for a reality TV show. Well what is it? Big Brother puts a number of people, varing from series to series, into a purposely built house for a period of time time over the summer (again the time period varies from series to series). It sounds simple. But once in the house, the housemates must complete tasks in order to win food and luxuries throughout their stay. At the series's have progressed, the time spent in the house has increased from 8 weeks to 3 and a half months.
Each week, the housemates must nominate two of their fellow housemates to face the public vote, to be evicted at a given time, normally the following Friday. The two or more housemates who recieve the most nominations go to the vote, and the one recieveing the most votes is evicted and must leave the house in a live televised show. Whoever is left at the end is voted the winner and walks away from the house with a large cash prize.
The Big Brother tends to change from year to year, with different themes decorating the house. My favourite theme was the Heavon and Hell theme a couple of years ago. Some houses have been pretty basic, while others are quite lavuous. All the housemates sleep in the main bedroom together, and they can socialise in the main house which consists of the living area, kitchen, bathroom. There is also a garden which sometimes has a pool, but this is often removed if the housemates have broken any of the rules.
My favourite series's are those which last the longest and have a large number of housemates. It starts out with them being best pals, however cracks start to emerge, and that is when the fun begins. Arguments galore. Imagine if you were put in a house will people you have never met, for months, there would be some friction eventually.
I love this show as it is extremely entertaining. Unfortunately, the series starting in the summer will be the last, such a shame. I would recommend that you watch it in the summer. Although recent seasons havent been a good as they could have been, with it being the last season, I have a feeling that they are going to go out of their way to ensure that it is the best yet.
Bring it on.
Summary: Best reality show ever
