Storyline

Based on the Dutch series, thirteen strangers who are living in a studio-like house that's filled with cameras and microphones, compete in a series of physical and mental stunts, and some challenging trivia at a chance at $500,000 in this reality soap opera-like summer program. Thirteen of those house guests live in 13 different states. America will watch every single move they compete to be the last one standing, after having twelve house guests evicted. These strangers are the contestants who think they have absolutely nothing in common, and a few are in a shock for their lives. The house guests begin to introduce other people at the Big Brother house. It's the first time they will get to know each other and they're not allowed to say not one word with them until they are in the Big Brother house. The thirteen will be living in the same house for the following two months. They may either find their best friend or worst enemy in that group; and in the end, it's one men for themselves...

The highlight of my summer! 3 months of mental gaming and scheming!
21 September 2004 | by FentonMeiksSee all my reviews

I first discovered the delights of Big Brother when I tuned into Season 2 of the show. Since then, I have watched each season and I have to say the show just gets better and better!

One of my favorite aspects of any reality show is the scheming, ploting, and alliance making. And Big Brother is nothing but those things! (It's not very physical like Survivor). I love to see people develop friendships and alliances, and plot to evict people. Big Brother, while rather voyeristic with the internet live feeds, always supplies a fresh group of houseguests with someone for everybody to like!

Many people say they are bored by this show, or the concept is stupid. To them I say : don't watch! Big Brother is a fun, and addicting summer tradition, and I hope CBS puts out many more seasons of this reality gem!
