it's time to go....

After fourteen weeks, fifteen housemates, two replacement housemates, three intruders and a special guest.... after controversy, nudity, lies and "confliction"... after 105 website trivia quizzes and 252 hours of television... its all over for another year.

What the hell am I supposed to do with my Monday and Friday nights now?

I have to admit, I came a little late to the BB franchise... I flatly refused to watch the first series, never got around to watching the second, but got hooked on the third series, and have been watching it ever since. And this year is the first time where I really didn't give a damn about the housemates... as a group, they pretty much annoyed the crap out of me, but at the same time, I couldn't turn it off...

The third series was like hanging out with a bunch of friends, and I used to curl up in my pj's and watch Up Late and listen to all their great coversations, and I grew to really like the majority of them. It was also the one and only time I ever voted to evict someone... Bloody Ben...

The fourth series was kinda similar, although I was working during it, so no Up Late for me... but they became kind of like a surrogate group of friends... people I actually liked "spending time with"... even if the relationship was a little onesided *grin*.

But this year...

From the get-go, the housemates have just been irritating and obnoxious and butting heads over and over and over and over. Urgh...

Big Brother's tag line for this group was "young, single and sexy" or something similar... and, let me tell you, while some of them were nice eye candy, there is a definate reason a bunch of them were single...

But once again, I couldn't stop watching...

And 99% of the time my predictions for who was leaving the house turned out to be wrong. In previous years I got fairly good at predicting who would stay and who would go... but this year, forget it... strange decision after strange decision after strange decision. Thanks Australia...

Even this year's winner, Greg (or more acurately Logan Greg, playing for the Logan Twins) came as a shock to me. I was sure it was going to be Tim. But I guess Australia is still a sucker for a pretty face, and that was one thing Greg did have over Tim.

Well, congratulations Greg... enjoy splitting your $836,000 with your brother, and here's hoping your fifteen minutes of fame is kind to you.

Current Mood: sad its all over

Would seem we developed the same weird obession for each of our country's Big Brother equivalents. Though it happened to me with Survivor too. Suddenly couldn't get enough of either. Great blog man!! Would love to keep in touch. Cheers.
