A Guilty Pleasure

Someday, I will create a list of my guilty pleasures. There are quite a few of them. However, I have to share this one: the "Big Brother" reality show. It started this week. Thank goodness for DVR. It is on three times a week, and I don't always have time to watch it during the time it runs.

I think that I like this show because it is all about relationships. Granted, most of the relationships are shallow and manipulating. Think back on your Middle School or Junior High years and you'll get the picture.

As if it isn't bad enough that I watch the show three times a week, there is also a website that I haunt. There are cameras everywhere in the house and yard that run live feeds of what these people are doing. If you're willing to pay, you can watch the people in the house 24 hours a day for the course of the show. I'm not willing to pay, but someone buys the 24 hour a day feed for the show and then tells what is happening in the Big Brother house on an hourly basis on this website. It is kind of a spoiler for the TV show, but it is fun to "see" and "hear" all the things that aren't included on air.

Yep, that is my guilty pleasure. (And don't get me started on "Amazing Race" and "Survivor!")

We liked Big Brother when it first came out and for a few years after. It became more staged, people with their agents, etc. It is addicting though. The BB house got bigger and fancier also over the years.

We really like Survivor and still watch that each season.

We got tired of the American Rat Race, as we called it.

Watching people who don't know each other and have to live with each other is fascinating.
