Chain Blogging: Big Brother Starts Tomomorrow

They're calling it the Evil One. Every year I think: its crap why am I watching it, but end up getting fascinated by the crap psychology, stupidity, bickering and stuff and end up watching it regularly (not religiously - did watch tonnes of the first one but steadily watching less and less of them subsequently - now only really catch the long one with the pschologists on it and perhaps the friday eviction, so sad, so sad).

So, a quick round up, just before the next series:

Hated Craig (eventual winner), still can't stand him on that DIY programme he's on.
Wished Anna (lesbian ex-nun) had won.
Laughed at Mel's fickleness - being so drawn to Andy then swopping her affections for Tom the minute he left.
Nasty Nick - cheating double dealing b.... (made for some drama though)
Caroline's lip line
Worst outcome of the programme - Nicola's terrible terrible single.

Glad Brian won, not sure it was so good for kids TV although he fits in well there.
Liked Bubble and Brian's constant fighting and stuff.
The love affair - Paul and Helen (of the amazing I like blinking remarks).
Worst characters: control freak Stuart (pity his poor wife) and I'm so mad Penny.
Best bit - knowing about BB meant I could join in the boysy-gang at work who spent good portions of the day emailing their amateur pschological analysis to one another

Favs: Alex (dancing behind the bedroom door, peeing in the shower - horror), Sandy (Scot, older, walking out).
Least favourite: Jade (can you see my kebabs, am I minging - snivelling wreck).
Flirting - Adele & Lee until Sophie arrived and Adele ditched like a lead weight.
Advent of the great divide - rich vs poor side. I find this is now in common usage - our office has two units divided by a joining door where the other unit is the 'rich' side and our side is the 'poor' side. We spend our time bemoaning our lowly status.
Kate - first girl winner, men's cuppa tea but bland and rather boring.

Cameron, the winner - Scottish, virgin?
This one was all about The Tickle, really wasn't the same after he was chucked out.
Stupid South African swap.
The awful Lisa who was never going to fit in.
I didn't win the sweepstake at work.

And so we come to year 5 - the evil big brother. Not sure whether its going to be an obsessed year or not, yet.

This is part of a chain of posts linked together by word association. The previous link in the chain was here @ The Final Broadcast. If you want to write another link here's what to do: Find a word, phrase or theme from this post to inspire your own and go and write it. Try not to write something that's similar to this post. That way the subject of the posts along the chain will vary. E.g. if I write about going to the doctor's, then don't talk about the last time you were ill, instead describe how you used to play Doctors and Nurses with the girl next door. Get the idea? Your post can be in any style you want. Copy this paragraph and tack it onto the end of your post, updating the link to point here, then leave a comment here that points to your new post.
