If you know me at all, you’ll likely know that one of my biggest obsessions and guilty pleasures in the tv show Big Brother. I’ve spent summer after summer watching seasons of the game unfold and even went back and watched the seasons I was too young to catch back when they originally aired. I definitely know other people who are into the show too and talking with them about it is tons of fun, but I’m ready to get even more people watching the show with me! So here’s 5 reasons why you need to watch this summer
It’s an interesting concept
The name of the game includes a group of people going into a house with no entertainment while they compete for money and are followed by cameras 24/7. I think it’s safe to say that we’re all at least a little interested to see what happens to people in that kind of environment, especially in this social media obsessed world.
It’s got the good kind of drama we love from reality tv
Most of us love a little drama if we’re being perfectly honest, but no one wants to be right in the middle of drama. Big Brother has the perfect dose of drama in every episode that most are sure to love! Love, fights, challenges, alliances, twists, and blindsides are all common occurrences in the Big Brother house. The best part of it is the fact that you’re sitting on your couch while it all unfolds!
It’s on 3 nights a week so you’ll never be without a show to watch
One of my favorite things is that fact that Big Brother has new episodes 3 days a week over the summer. One night a week is the Head Of Household competition and eviction, one night a week is nominations, and another night of the week is the Power Of Veto competition. This keeps the happenings fresh in your mind and keeps you from waiting long to find out what happens next. As a super fan, I know I couldn’t wait an entire week for a new episode of Big Brother!
There’s a huge fan base you can talk about it with
There are tons of Big Brother superfans out there that love to talk about the show and post about the show on social media. If you become a fan of the show it can be super fun to join in on the conversation with everyone. You can share your thoughts on the game and see what others have to say too. It’s a fun way to spend what can sometimes be a long or boring summer!
It’s got something for everyone!
Do you love interior design? The decorations in the house the players live in changes every season! Do you love comedy? There’s always some funny houseguests who can crack some good jokes in the diary room and the houseguest can often find themselves in some funny situations! Are you competitive? Then you’ll love the competitions! Each week there’s an HOH and POV competition to captivate you. Do you love drama? There’s plenty of that to go around the entire summer! Whatever your interest is, there’s a pretty good chance there’s at least a little bit of it found in a season of Big Brother.
Now that you know all this stuff about Big Brother, you’re ready for the summer and have exactly what you need to jump into the new season of Big Brother. Are you already hooked? Mark your calendar for Wednesday, June 28th to catch the season premiere! You don’t want to miss this one!
