BB8Dish - Ya Gotta Have it!

SPOILER ALERT!! At bb8dish, we cover the live feeds. Much of what we write could be considered a spoiler for those who only watch the broadcast on CBS. Now, we don't understand why anyone would choose to do that, since it's like forming an opinion based on 1/10,000th of the information, and they could at least try the feeds for free, but what do we know?! Check bb8dish often for Updates, videos, pics, chops, opinions, etc. xoxo, C-n-C

Big Brother Technical Supervisor Reminisces

In the eternal quest for cool BB things/sites/pics, I came across the website of one of the season one crew members today. It's a very intimate look behind the scenes, and here's how it begins:

    One house. Ten strangers. 100 days. 28 cameras. 60 microphones.Every moment captured on video. No contact with the outside world. No luxuries. Who will outlast the others to win $500,000? You will decide.

    I was Technical Supervisor, Post Production for the first season of the CBS Network show, "Big Brother", working under the famous Gene Crowe. I helped build and operate the technical side of the post facility for the series...

Care to know more? ;)

Update on Sarah from BB6

Many of you have asked for info on past HGs, and we found this tidbit on TVGrapevine this morning. They have a lot of great info on the site, so have a good look around.

TVGrapevine: Your Big Brother experience is finally over Sarah what has it been like reentering the real world?

Sarah: I have been trying to get on with life as normal. I went back to my job, moved home to Chicago. James came with me to Chicago and things were good for a while but went down hill after he got off All Stars, and we are now broken up. I'm currently dating the most amazing guy, his name is Vinny and we have been going strong for 2 months

I'd heard rumors, but had no idea they were true. Now, we know, and we wish both Sarah and James the very best in their lives. To read the rest of the interview, Click Here

Big Brother 8 - So much to think about

As Erika was so fond of saying last year, you've got to "know your role." As I think about the upcoming season of Big Brother today, what's on my mind is what those roles are... and, ofcourse who will be filling them.

Here's the breakdown:

  • The Devil/Villain - we may love him, but he's still the Devil.
  • The Empath
  • The Temptress
  • The Slut
  • The "Floater"
  • The Sob Story
  • The Bitch
  • The Hunk
  • The Loverboy
  • The Loveable Goofball
  • The Caretaker
  • The Queen
  • The Absolute Psychotic Freak
  • The Old(er) Guy - credit to Greg. I'd forgotten about the old guy!

Have I missed any? What do you think? I'm happy to add more.

If you care to fill in the blanks on all the "roles" from the season of your choice, please put it in the comments section here on the blog. I'd love to see what you think.

Even better, like the title says, "Know your role." Which role would YOU fill if you were in the BB8 house?

BB8Dish Frequently Asked Questions
aka FAQs

FAQs - Please add your burning questions to the comments at the end of this post, and we'll add them and the answers to the FAQs. :)

Why do you like the live feeds so much?
Well, given the option to actually know what's going on in the house, or merely be told the storyline the producer decides to go with, we choose knowing.
Often in Big Brother, certain houseguests are portrayed very differently on television that they actually are in the house. We can't hang with that. If you've never tried the live feeds, we highly recommend you give them a shot by taking advantage of the 2 week free trial. Then make up your own mind.
Here's the link for you to do that:

Why can't I right click?
Due to too many of our posts and images appearing in their entirety in other places (so-called blogs that do nothing but copy content from others) completely uncredited, we have elected to disable right click. Also to protect the images of some of the chop artists and screencappers from widespread, uncredited usage.

Why are the feeds in black and white?
The Feeds go to night vision when the HGs are sleeping. As soon as they're awake, the lights go on, and color is re-instated.

What does FotH mean?
hehe :) Front of the House. Originally whenever the feeds were cut for a few minutes for whatever reason, they showed us the front of the house. Then it became Fish of the House... since they changed it to a fish tank. Last year it was flames.. this year, it looks like a Smurf Colonoscopy MRI. Still, for old times sake, people still refer to it as FoTH. There's an acronym key at the bottom of the FAQs page. :)

Why are the HGs already in the house for 5-6 days once the live feeds start?
In order to broadcast the first show, the production company needs actual footage of the houseguests interacting, doing diary room sessions, and competing in the first HoH. The only way to get it is by putting the HGs in there a few days early. Also, having the HGs in there a few days early allows them to form some bonds and get over the initial (boring) awkwardness of living with 13 people they don't know.

Do you know what all the myspaces are for the HGs?
Yeah. they're in the left sidebar under "HG Myspaces."

What chat room do you guys go to?
As much as we'd love to invite everyone to the chat room we use, it wouldn't be fair to the regulars who've been using it for years and years, as there would be no space left for them. Instead of asking us where we go, please send us messages letting us know where you are, and we'll come visit! :) Frankly, we're really not there too often anyhow. Too busy updating the blog!!

Do you have jobs?
Yes, lol, we do. Still, somehow, they manage to not interfere with our summer obsession. ;)

My comment didn't get posted. What's up with that?
Well, there could be a few reasons:
1. Patience! ;) It's probably sitting there waiting for us to approve it. We moderate all the comments, and each and every one must be approved. We do this primarily to avoid all the spam comments from jerks trying to sell viagra and the like. We try to really stay on top of it, but sometimes things get a little nuts, so it could take a little while. There's no need to repost and repost. It's there, we got it, we just need to publish it.

2. On rare occasions, we choose to not publish a comment. While we understand how passionate people become about the show, we cannot and will not support the wholesale bashing of any HG. Calling someone vulgar, hateful names will not get your comment published. Gay bashing, Ethnic slurs, Calling a young woman a whore, a skank, etc, or referring to her as a derogatory body part... anything of that nature... Major no-no's.

3. Threats of any kind made towards anyone, HG or other commenter, will not be published.

While we tend to stay away from most of the BB acronyms, many sites use them quite liberally. Here's a list of the more popular choices:
AC - America's Choice
AP - America's Player
BB - Big Brother
BBT - Big Brother Time (west coast)
BY - BackYard
DOR - Drop Out Request
FotH - * see above
HG - House Guest
HoH - Head of Household
HT - Hot Tub
LD - Lock down
LR - Living Room
MRA - Mrs Robinson Alliance
PoV - Power of Veto

Direct from CBS on Big Brother 8

It's a press release, and it's prettttyyy dry. Just the facts, ma'am. Just the facts. Here ya go:

CBS has picked up the reality series BIG BROTHER, hosted by Julie Chen, for an eighth installment to be broadcast this summer.

Last season's BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS started with 20 All-Star Houseguests and after 71 days and 1,704 hours, Mike "Boogie" Malin, a 35-year-old restaurateur originally from Concord, N.H., was crowned the winner of BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS and claimed the $500,000 prize.

BIG BROTHER 8 will follow the relationships and conflicts of players who live together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the Houseguests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER premiered in July 2000 and has been a key component of CBS' summer programming ever since.

BIG BROTHER 8 will be executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, in association with Endemol U.S.A. Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Arnold Shapiro will serve as an executive consultant on the series.

    Can you even believe it?!

    Big Brother 8 starts July 5th, unless of course CBS changes their collective mind, and we'll start bloggin a couple weeks before that, once there's something to really talk about.

    Once the show begins, you can count on us pretty well 24-7... for all the important and funny stuff - no need to bore you with every time someone goes to the bathroom or scratches their tush. Just like last year. :)

    Know this: As long as the HGs are in the house, we'll be blogging! And we're Really looking forward to it!!!!!
