We Meet Again, Big Brother

It's taken me a few days to see the first few episodes of this couple-themed, strike-necessitated (though not anymore, whoops, CBS!), and seemingly shortened season of the dumbest show on TV. And in the time it's taken me to catch up, these two...













...have already been eliminated. And I don't even know if I'm happy about that or not. Although odds are? I won't be sad to see any of these functionally retarded personality disorders leave the house. I haven't found anyone who's truly likeable yet, so this could be a long season indeed. So who are we talking about?

These two...














... (Jen and Ryan) are secretly dating in real life. Or were, but now the secret's out. He seems like the closest thing the show has to a decent guy (that I've seen), but she's an overhyper drama queen.

These two...













... (Joshuah and Neil) have been paired up together, seeing as they're The Gays and all. But their relationship hasn't seen nearly the kind of chemistry and closeness exhibited by...













...these two (Alex and Matt). Yes, it's your semi-annual DudeBro alliance, where bros come before hoes. They haven't allowed the New York/Boston rivalry to keep them from pledging their fidelity to each other to the bitter end. Oh, and they'll probably drag their respective balls and chains to the finish line with them. If they have to. Matt's a total lost cause (naturally, he's the Boston one), but it's a real shame Alex seems to be such a d-bag. He's what Corey Haim could have become if he'd stayed away from the meth.

Then there's a bunch of flighty, squeaky-voiced girls. The drama's been pretty mundane so far. The one big SCANDALE has been Jen and Ryan outing themselves/getting outed by other people. Which led to the supremely stupid moment when Joshuah...

...(this guy, remember?) passed a Bible around and made everybody swear that they didn't also have a pre-existing alliance. I nearly threw something at the TV. You stupid fucking homo! A Bible?? We're supposed to know better, dickhead.





Other than that, it's been three episodes worth of not much of anything, really. Oh, except for Adam. Who will haunt your dreams...

I don't watch the show, because reality TV always irritates me. But it seems to be driving the stereotypes that gay men are good-looking and hot. I mean, just compare the gays to the straights there. I'd like to get on the show just to be the counterexample.
