Welcome one and all to the loosest commentary on any reality show that you’ve potentially ever read. Step into the brains of two shameless Big Brother fans, Holly and Rose as they word vomit, all over your screen, their thoughts on the best reality show of all time (this point is HIGHLY debatable).
Why are they doing this you ask? No logical reason, other than using this as an outlet for their unwarranted opinions. Don’t expect this to be a recap or anything too sophisticated, you’ll just be bitterly let down. Enjoy!
First impressions overview:
Rose: I forgot how much I hate ads, Why do people watch free to air
Holly: FLEX FLEX FLEX
Rose: OMG so dramatic – BUDGET
Rose: My partner just said it looks like the start of a formula one race
Holly: Lol how they bring the contestants in kinda like the bachelor in cars – to meet their bachelorette Sonia Kruger
Holly: Interesting them bringing them in groups- i don’t like it!
Holly: That was kind of scary when Sonia said “seal off the door!”
Rose: High production high trash
The house/interior design:
Holly: The house high key looks the same – despite Big Brother saying otherwise
Holly: Diary room chair looks uncomfortable
Rose: My main concern is that the chair doesn’t look comfy to cry on
Holly: OKAY THIS SECRET ROOM IS SO COOL
Rose: Love the secret button very high tech Narnia
Rose: The ru-veal of the sneaky room is very fun. It’s big spy movie energy coming in and out of the couch
Rose: Love the safe house. Reminds me of The Mole. MOLE PEOPLE. I’d hide just to get some piece of quiet
Rose: I’d like to see a floor plan of the house
(First impressions)The housemates:
Okay, so we did write something about everyone but for the sake of space and sanity… we’re going to just chat about the people of note… so far…
Shout out to: Katie, Carlos (luv u), Renata, Sid, Christina, Sarah Jane/ SJ (omg ur an icon will chat about u soon x) and Mitch. There’s 12 people in the house so far and still more to come in! Our work is cut our for us.
Farm girl Mel 🐑
Entertainment rating :
Holly & Rose: 7/10
Holly: 3 Cute kids, cute animals – Vaycay from kids?
Holly: Straight up asked Daniel if he had work done ahah – for that comment she gets a 10/10 spice rating
Rose: Holding a lamb and child is pretty damn impressive
Rose: I’ve never understood people who say they have to go on reality tv for their families, i just find it hard to believe that this was your best option
Rose: Note to everyone: if you’re ever in an emergency, film in LANDSCAPE
Rose: Saying Daniel is sharp is definitely a read from Mel. She’s the first one we’ve seen and for me that means she will go far. How much coaching did Mel get from the producers to be nothing but farm girl that can’t be her whole personality
Real Estate Agent Daniel 🏘
Holly & Rose 8/10
Holly: Kinda shy in front of Sonia – RED FLAG THAT HE’S A REAL ESTATE AGENT
Rose: Oh no, if someone says they are direct that’s a bad start, I automatically assume you’re rude
Holly: HE’S 70 LOL WHAT – wait no he’s not he’s a troll
Holly: Real estate agent giving people tours of the house
Rose: Daniel is showing people round like he’s the agent lol
Rose: AHHHHHHH dropping that every woman has left him that hurt
Rose: Oh no
Rose: I think he’s going to assume things will go his way and it won’t because he’s going to annoy people
OUR FAVE Flex Mami/Lillian 🐊
Rose: 8/10 i need to see more
Rose & Holly 10/10 bias af
Rose: OH YES THE CROCS
Rose: I’m bias and I can’t pretend I’m not Holly: same
Holly: Her skin is glowing
Holly: Do the other housemates know that such an icon is among them
Rose: Do you reckon Flex knows SJ? Social media circles?
Rose: I like all her loungewear choices, good packing
Token sport boy Max🥉
Rose & Holly 2/10
Rose: 0/10 love triangle doesn’t entertain me
Holly: 1/10 not impressed by the attitude
Holly: Iron man gives me lego man vibes
Holly: How funny that athletes think only athletes are naturally competitive
Rose: Do producers celebrate with beers when they find athletes willing to do reality tv? They love the promo of an athlete as a human
Holly: Why is being single embarrassing?
Holly: Uh oh his ex gf is podcast girl/fitness gal Rose:OH NO I hate this. He’s NOT HAPPY
Rose: I hated that he called BB Big Dog but LOVED BB calling him Little Pup
Rose: I just don’t connect with him as a contestant im not interested
Holly: Note to producers, babes… we’re done with the straight showmances. That’s what MAFS is for.
Thoughts on the challenge:
Holly: Looks scary imo
Holly: I did a similar thing on a school camp once and it’s scary
Rose: I would have cried doing this at school for sure
Holly: The stacking element looks silly but i like the more mental element
RoseL Honestly when people cheer me on I feel worse, so I really feel for Flex in this
Rose: I appreciate that BB is complimenting outfits
Iconic moments/this needs to be a meme:
Holly: Just anything nick and daniel at this point
Holly: Flex sitting sad on the pole 🙁 She still looks so cute though her pink track suit
Holly: Nick’s towel poncho
Holly: Crawling back through the sofa lol
Rose: The boys sitting at the bottom of the pool like kids
Best housemate/who I want to live with:♥️
Rose: Nicholas’ dog Edwina
Who would I vote out:❌
Rose: HEEEYYYY! I didn’t expect anyone to vote. I personally don’t think it’s any loss to have lost Max this early – I think he was going to cause trouble and a boring plot line. Dan was going to have a target on him anyway, so he may as well vote someone out and play the game.
Final thoughts: 🧠
Rose: Big Brother has changed a lot since it’s first time round in Aus. It’s more like Survivor and relies on the tricks of the house. I’m not mad at the latter, I love when Big Brother plays some jokes, but I don’t care so much for the full on challenges.
Overall, the show is only as good as the attention you put in – it’s people driven and so if you’re willing to put in the time I think it looks like a good season. If you only come in and out, I don’t think it’s going to make much sense.
I really hope the season lets us see all players, and not just the narrative per episode. I do want to care, but I need to be shown a reason to.
Holly: I enjoyed this first ep overall. Can’t deny I did laugh a lot. Some changes to format such as bringing the contestants in groups doesn’t sit right with me. The first three to enter, did.not.vibe at all. How awkies. I think we both didn’t like the section of the ep where they shredded those items the contestants asked for, it was redundant, wasteful and environmentally damaging. How are you going to SHRED a F&%*$#G coffee machine? Will tune in for next ep.
