Big Brother 6 Episode 1 Recap + Video
The season premiere of episode 1 of Big
Brother 6 was not a disappointment! We
were treated to meeting the attractive
new houseguests and given a whirlwind tour
of the new house with teases from host
Julie Chen about this seasons twists.
I found 2 of the female houseguests to
be particlularly fetching - Sarah and Janelle.
Let's see how long these 2 cuties last
in the Big Brother 6 house.
Apparently the big twist this season is
that every houseguest is secretly paired
up with another houseguest... hmmm... sounds
hokey, but hey, they haven't done wrong
yet so I'll save the sarcasm for when they
go over the edge.
Now, to set the record straight, last
Summer's Big Brother 5 was the first season
I ever watched. I did so reluctantly I
might add, mainly because Paradise Hotel
from the previous Summer never came back.
While not exactly the same, I must say
that Big Brother 5 was a hoot and astonished
me with similarities from Paradsie Hotel.
Who lifted what form whom? Ah, well in
this age of over reality saturation, it's
hard to say who gets credit for what, with
all the shows using similar methods of
establishing the reality they want you
So, this season the winner gets 1 million.
Seems like it's about time. Bet Drew from
last season is a bit tiffed he didn't get
Not much action in the first episode other
than watching the houseguests get acquainted
with the new Big Brother 6 digs and get
to know each other.
They dove straight into the first competition
and it was for food and head of household.
Two teams tossed coconuts. A team won.
The winners then balanced on a surfboard
in the backyard pool to see who'd fall
off or give up, but unlike Survivor we
didn't see the houseguests suffer for a
long period. Rachel and Howie made it till
the end when Howie needs to take a whiz,
or was just being nice (secret partner?)
and let's Rachel get the HOH.
Rachel wanted it bad. She gets the special
Head of Household room and shows it off
to oohs and ahhs from the jealous houseguests
who must hang in the compound for a week.
We see a few deals being made but it's
too early to know which guests are who
and none of the politics made an impression
on me. Surely once the guests are identifiable
I'll start to notice the dealmaking and
In the meantime I'll just say it was good
clean fun with an attractive cast and it
looks like Big Brother 6 is headed in the
HOH Rachel ended up nominating Kaysar
the Iraqi guy to be voted off (he seems
nice enough though he likes to pray a few
more times on that carpet thing he carries
around than any person should need to,
but hey - I don't know his God very well,
so who am I to judge... me, I've got hobbies...
but let's not get into religinouz dizcuzzonz
Rachel also nominated Ashlea
whom hasn't made an impression on HOH
Rachel, or me for that matter. She flew
under the radar but got nabbed to be dumped.
Too early to pick my faves, but lets hope
we see some skin from a few of the girls
before the guys domainate and take over
the show. Unless they start picking off
guys now, the girls may not have a chance.
Only time will tell.
Get ready to work your Tivo to the bone
this Summer. Big Brother 6 has arrived!
