I feel kind of sorry for my friend Jeff.Â In the mid 90âs Jeff was my intern when I hosted a nighttime radio show.Â Jeff moved to Hollywood to become a comedy writer and get into the entertainment industry.
You wonât know his name, but Jeff has worked behind the scenes on some classic reality shows like the Osbournes and the Newelyweds. He is currently working behind the scenes on Big Brother 12.
Jeff doesnât share any sort of inside information with me.Â The closest I have gotten to inside information is that he works incredibly long hours!Â Two weeks ago, Jeff posted a status update on Facebook saying that he had worked a 17-hour day.
Jeffâs job, from what I understand, is to take all of the footage that is shot in the Big Brother house (24 hours a day, 7 days a week), and edit it together into a story that makes sense.Â Like all reality shows, Iâm sure he has to put the show together in way that makes some characters look like heroes and others like villains.
Why do I feel bad for Jeff?Â The houseguests this season, are a very difficult bunch to make look good.Â Again, I donât have any sort of inside information, but it appears that the goal âbehind the scenesâ is to make Brendan and Rachel the âgood guysâ.
In my opinion, itâs not working!
Rachel is one of the most annoying Big Brother houseguests ever!Â The more she wins, the more unlikable she becomes.Â I canât be the only one who is hating her more and more as every day goes on.Â In fact, it feels like the Big Brother producers are trying to make Brendan and Rachel into this seasonâs Jeff and Jordan.
Once again, itâs just my opinion, but itâs not working!
In fact, while Jeff and Jordan spiked the ratings upwards last year, it wouldnât shock me to see Rachel cause the ratings to go the other way.Â She is just an irritating personality that isnât fun to watch.Â Again, I ask, am I alone?
How is somebody so horribly annoying getting the spotlight?Â Itâs simple!Â Sheâs the best of the obnoxious and boring this season.Â If Rachel left today, who would we be left with?Â Letâs look at the rest of the female houseguests:
Kristen: I liked her better when she wasnât talking.Â The second she stared to speak up, she shot herself in the foot and is the frontrunner to go home this week.
Brittney: We saw her annoying side early this season.Â While she is coming across nicer as of late, I will always remember her as one of the two âeye rollinâ bitchesâ.
Kathy:Â Finally, someone who isnât obnoxious!Â That is a HUGE plus in my opinion, Â Kathyâs problem?Â Sheâs boring!!Â If there is a woman in the Big Brother house this season that might grow on me, itâs Kathy.Â She needs more screen time.
While Iâm analyzing the houseguests, I might as well touch on the men:
Hayden:Â Small mouth aside, he had a great thing going until he let his fling with Kristen get in the way of his game.Â Heâs a lucky man if he gets past this week.Â Heâs a strong player.Â If the house were smart, heâd get the boot!
Lane:Â Lane is this seasonâs Jordan!Â Heâs kind of doe eyed to the world!Â Heâs learning that there is more to life than just Texas.Â His reactions are real and his personality is unique and entertaining.
Enzo: I really like Enzo.Â Heâs got street smarts.Â Sadly, street smarts donât help you in the Big Brother house.Â If anybody is going to get blindsided by friends this season, itâs going to be Enzo.Â Meow Meow.
Matt: I hope this self-proclaimed genius/puppet master goes home.Â Did I really see him in the diary room talking about frustrated he is that the house couldnât break up Brendan and Rachel?Â You idiot.Â You could have broken them up.Â It was a 100% lock that if the house wanted one of them gone, you could have broken them up, but you BLEW IT!
Regan: I wish Regan got more screen time.Â Every season, Big Brother casts a gay guy.Â Every season, the gay guy has an awesome perspective on the house.Â Regan is no exception, but he hardly gets screen time!!Â This guy is funny.Â Put Regan on TV more!
Brendan: This guyâs game will get much better the day Rachel gets the boot.Â Rachelâs latest actions have put a huge target on her back and Brendan should be able to benefit from her stupidity!Â Then again, he seems like an airhead.Â Maybe the two were meant to be together.
There is my take on the house.Â I think Kristen is going home this week.Â I wonât miss her and her high pants and crappy attitude.Â Next week, I hope the house goes after Rachel.Â Then, I would go after Matt.
Samuel posted a comment and asked me why I didnât bring up Pandoraâs Box in my last blog.Â I donât have all that many thoughts on Pandoraâs Box. Â We donât know the details yet.Â What we know is that, after Americaâs vote, one houseguest is going to be offered the opportunity to become the new saboteur for the next two weeks.
The original plan for the saboteur was to play for five weeks and leave the house.Â If the two-week saboteur offer comes with the catch that the player needs to leave the house at the end of the two weeks, who would be dumb enough to take the offer?Â There are too many unknowns, at this time, for me to comment .
As always, post your comments here, or at www.Facebook.com/RadioWakeUpCall
Tonight on Big Brother, we saw the first true signs of life in the house!Â The houseguests may have called Andrew âCaptain Kosherâ, but my new nickname for him is âthe Kosher Matchstickâ because tonight he lit a fire!Â Sadly, âthe Kosher Matchstickâsâ flame has already gone out.
Iâd be lying if I said that the Big Brother show didnât frustrate the hell out of me.Â Early in the Big Brother game, houseguests are usually so scared to step out on their own that the game turns into a dull, plodding mess.Â This season was no exception.Â Without the occasional cattiness, everyone is playing nice with each other.
That all changed tonight.Â Andrew, knowing he was most likely heading out the door, spilled a ton of secrets to the Big Brother houseguests.Â At first, I was literally smacking my forehead because it seemed like the immediate reaction to Andrewâs speech was that he was lying about everything.Â By the end of the night though, it was pretty obvious that Andrewâs words had the houseguests thinking.
The first sign was when Enzo asked the houseguests âwho is talking about meâ?Â He said it like he was kidding, but nobody likes being made fun of.Â Enzo is no different.Â Iâm sure heâs going to seriously question the sincerity of the people he thinks he can trust inside of the house.
The second, and most obvious sign the Andrewâs final words cut deep, was the reaction of Kristen.
I just need to take a moment to say that I have made fun of Kristen for a few weeks because she didnât say or do anything inside of the Big Brother house.Â After seeing her âcome aliveâ tonight, I wish I could have the old Kristen back.Â This new Kristen is a bitch.
Kristen got called out for her ârelationshipâ with Hayden.Â She reacted like the âother girlâ when your man cheats on you.Â (Not that I would know what itâs like to have my man cheated on, but you get the point)Â She got loud.Â She got sassy.Â She got aggressive.Â She got owned.
Iâm not a huge fan of Rachel.Â In fact, she might be one of the most annoying players this season.Â Sadly though, I will take a giggly, jiggly bimbo (with brains), over a bitchâ¦.any day.Â Tonight, Rachel got called out, over and over again by Kristen during the HOH competition.Â Kristen was on a mission to take Rachel down, and out of the game.
In the endâ¦Rachel won her second HOH competition of the week and she immediately put Kristen in her place.Â This week is going to be interesting, and by interesting, I meanâ¦catty, loud, obnoxious, etc.
Here is what I hope will happen this week.Â I hope that Rachel puts up Kristen and Hayden.Â I hope that Hayden goes home.Â I actually like Hayden, but I want the âBrigadeâ to get broken up.Â Plus, Kristen staying in the house=drama.Â I like that.
Make your predictions nowâ¦.who will be broken up first:
Brendan and Rachel
Hayden and Kristen

How could I forget the biggest blow off in Big Brother history???? Â Brendan tells Rachel..."I love you". Â Rachel doesn't reply! Â In fact Rachel leaned back as if to say "slow down big boy".
Instead of reading, or attempting to read the body language between "Brenchel", I want to take a moment to say that I think it's the lamest thing in the world to call your "showmance" a "relationship". Â When Rachel talks about about people getting in the middle of her "relationship" with Brendan, I want to throw up. Â I'm really sorry Rachel, but the following are not true:
1) You are are not boyfriend and girlfriend
2) You are not soul mates
3) Brendan doesn't realize it yet, but he doesn't love you.
4) Outside of the Big Brother house, you two will annoy each other because it's amazing how easy it is to break up when you can LEAVE!
5) You will both regret blowing a shot at $500,000 if either of you makes a move to save your love, instead of your game.
Enough said. Â Thanks for reading this blog update! Â I love you guys for reading this!
Big Brother has had some memorable players in past seasons.Â Mark my words.Â Matt is not going to go down as a memorable player.
This week, Matt had a âgenius planâ.Â Sorry genius, but you are an idiot.Â If you want one of two people out of the game, you need to nominate both people.
Letâs rewind a bit.Â If Matt had nominated Brendan and Rachel, one of them was going home.Â Even if Brendan won the POV, he would remove himself from the block.Â Kathy or Andrew would have gone up in his place and Rachel would have gone home.Â Done deal.
There is nothing genius about what Matt did this week.Â Itâs so frustrating to watch the âBrigadeâ follow Mattâs lead.Â Matt said âwe just need somebody to throw us a boneâ.Â Â To quote my wife, âsomebody did throw you a bone.Â You won HOH and you screwed it upâ.Â I just hope that the subtle questioning of Mattâs âgeniusâ leads to a split in the âBrigadeâ.
Am I alone when I say that we are three weeks into the game, and I still donât have a strong favorite in the house?Â If I had to pick somebody as my favorite, Iâd go with Andrew.Â He seems like such a nice guy.
With that said, nice doesnât mean strategic.Â Andrewâs âbig moveâ at the end of the game appears to have put him in the line of fire for eviction this week.Â He went from being the pawn, to the target in less than a minute.Â I really hope he doesnât go home this week, but heâs going to have to make some big time moves behind the scenes in order to stay.
Here is what I would do if I were Andrew.Â I would try my best to throw Matt under the bus to Lane and Hayden.Â If Andrew can convince Lane and Hayden that Matt is a weak link, itâs possible that they might want to keep Andrew around as a strategic partner.
If Andrew wins over Lane and Hayden, itâs possible that they may consider splitting from the âBrigadeâ and throwing Matt out on his âgeniusâ ass next week.Â If Andrew can convince Hayden, heâll also get Kristenâs vote.Â If he gets Lane, heâll get Brittneyâs vote because those two are house buddies.Â If Andrew can get those votes, Kathy is gone.
I really donât think that anybody else is worth swaying.Â I donât think Regan is going to vote to keep Andrew.Â I donât think Brittney or Kristen can be won over.Â I truly believe that the impending implosion of the âBrigadeâ is the only way that Andrew stays in the house.
One thing to consider is that this is Big Brother.Â Strategy aside, Andrew might simply get lucky.Â The houseguests might realize that without him in the house there will be nobody to do the laundry and the dishes.
Hell, Iâd keep Andrew in the game till the end!Â By the way, isnât it time that Big Brother installed a dishwasher??
Tomorrow nightâs eviction should be interesting.Â I really hope Andrew can stay.Â I really would love to see Andrew take out Matt next week.
Till next timeâ¦.Thanks for reading my Big Brother Blog!
Finally we have some life in the Big Brother house!Â Sure, it was the (ever so lame) house meeting that brought tensions out, but I have been dying to see some of this seasonâs houseguests throw down.Â In the end, the fight was fairly meaninglessâ¦.or was it?
Matt made a deal to go up as a pawn. Regan was there to witness this deal take place.Â Matt got caught, but denied everything.Â Regan knows the truth.Â Things are about to get interesting!!
At the 45 minute point of tonightâs episode, Monet was sent packing.Â If I can be selfish for a minute, I have to admit that I am super happy that Monet is gone.Â Forget that I have referred to her as one of the âeye rollinâ bitchesâ.Â Forget that sheâs been very nasty to other houseguests.Â Iâm happy to see her go, because every time I type her, I type Money.Â I am always hitting backspace and changing out the y for a t.Â My typo problem is more annoying than Monet ever was.Â Yes, I just typed Money in that previous sentence.Â No joke.
You may wonder how Brittney stays so thin.Â Itâs obvious.Â She cries off the pounds.
Melinda wrote me an e-mail and told me to stop proclaiming to be a Big Brother know it all.Â I never claim to be a Big Brother know-it-all.Â Iâm just a fan.Â So Melinda, thatâs a very nice high horse.Â Can you please get down off of it?Â Thanks.
Congratulations Kristen!Â You did something in the Big Brother house!Â All together now, âYIPPEEâ!!!!Â I was happy to see that Kristen stirred the pot and stood up for herself.Â Also, in other breaking Kristen news, Hayden still thinks sheâs hot.Â The two were seen making out in bed while Andrew pretended to sleep.Â Oh yeah, my Big Brother spy tells meâ¦.Kristen has a boyfriend at home in Philly!
The show ended with a surfboard endurance Head of Household competition that looked absolutely horrible.Â Balance+cold water+wind+exhaustion=suck
If you want to know the winner of tonightâs Head of Household competition, I know what happened!Â I will put the winner of the HOH competition down a bit on this page.Â Â You wonât see it, UNLESS you page down a bit.Â Ok?
Thanks for reading!Â As always, feel free to comment and leave questions!Â You can also leave comments/questions at www.facebook.com/radiowakeupcall or e-mail me:Â Jason@endonline.com
AÂ little lower.Â I donât want anybody to accidentally see this.
Just a little moreâ¦â¦
Ok, the winner of the surfboard HOH comp isâ¦â¦..
Matt.Â Yup from the block to the HOH room.Â He may have cut some sort of deal with Regan, but Iâm not 100% sure on that!
Big Brother finally has me sucked in this season.Â Before I explain how and what got my full attention, I need to rant a little bit.Â While I am still a huge Big Brother fan, the show has been far from perfect so far, in comparison to past seasons.
I still think that the casting this season sucks.Â The best example is Kristen.Â If you are asking yourself âwhoâ, thatâs ok because in two weeks, Kristen has gotten about 2 minutes of screen time.Â There is a lot of talk of âfloatersâ in the Big Brother house.Â Kristen may actually be the first Big Brother house guest to be a floater in both the Big Brother house, and on our television screens.
Has anybody seen Kathy?Â She must be hiding with Kristen.
Did Regan join the Brigade (stupid name for an alliance btw)?Â Â Oh wait, The Brigade is Lane, Hayden, Matt, and Enzo.Â Regan canât join the Brigade because heâs gay.Â Donât Ask, Donât Tell still applies in the Big Brother house.
Matt came up with an awesome strategy, right?Â Give your wife an illness that involves the legs and feet because there is NO CHANCE that a PODIATRIST will be a follow houseguest!Â I have to be honest, I am curious to see if that lie gets out to the other houseguests and how it Andrew spills the secret without coming across like a liar himself.
Ok, back to last nightâs show.Â I actually yelled out âNOOOOOOOOOOâ.Â Â Do you know when?Â If you guessed that I yelled out âNOOOOOOOOOâ when Rachel appeared to be ready to put Andrew on the block even though Matt offered himself up as a pawn, you would be correct!
You never vote out somebody, this early in the Big Brother game, who obviously doesnât like you because you think they have changed.Â Get them out when you have the chance!Â When you wait on eliminating your enemies, you live to regret it in the Big Brother house.
There is something about Andrew that I like.Â I feel like he has a chance to be a big player in the game if he gets deeper into the game.Â If he can make it past the next two weeks, I think he will team up with one of the existing groups and make a run at winning the game.Â Iâm really glad that Rachel decided to take Matt up on his offer.
Who is going to go home this week?Â I think Monet is done.
It takes five votes to get evicted tonight.Â Matt already has the Brigade votes.Â Lane, Hayden, and Enzo will vote for him.Â Rachel and Brendan will stick together, putting Brendanâs vote against Monet.Â For you Big Brother newbies, Rachel doesnât vote because she is the Head Of Household.
Using my predictions, Monet already has 4 votes against her tonight.Â Andrew was saved by Rachel.Â One would think that heâd vote the way she asked him to vote out of loyalty.Â If Andrew decides to vote out Matt, youâd think somebody else in the house would vote out Monet.Â It seems like Monet and Brittney have spent a lot of time being âeye rollin bitchesâ.Â Nobody likes âeye rollin bitchesâ.
Prediction, Monet goes home.Â As of now, the only vote I see Monet receiving is Brittneyâs vote.Â If the house is going to vote out Monet, itâs quite possible that Brittney votes out her friend so as not to stand out.Â If the house is planning another unanimous vote, this would be a great week for somebody to throw in that âwho was that voteâ to make the houseguests question each other.

Nominations were aired tonight on Big Brother.Â Rachel had many different options, but I am happy to say that I was wrong with my nomination predictions (which you can read in my last BB blog). Rachel nominated both eye rollinâ bitches!
I know itâs mean to call Britney and Monet âeye rollinâ bitchesâ, but if there is one personality trait that I am not fond of, itâs people who roll their eyes when they donât like something or somebody.Â Eye rolling is one of the most obnoxious things a person can do.
Britney and Monet are eye rollers.Â They also come across very spoiled.Â I donât know anything about Britney and Monet, but if I had to guess, they both get what they want most of the time.Â Maybe I am reading them wrong.Â I have a feeling that Iâm not.
If nominations stay the same, I see Britney going home.Â I think between the two eye rollinâ bitches, Britney is far more obnoxious.Â Hell, we might even get another unanimous vote.
Onto other Big Brother business:
Is Matt giving geniuses a bad name?Â His âparanoia strategyâ appears to have been a dumb idea.Â Whatâs next Matt?Â âItâs my f**k you loser strategy, where I got up to the HOH and say f**k you loser!Â That will keep me safeâ!!
Kristen continues to be a Big Brother casting directors worst nightmare.Â Sheâs dull.Â Â How did she get on this show with her âouter shell that people need to break through to get to know meâ?Â Letâs all pray she doesnât make it to the end.
Enzo:Â Meow, Meow.Â He got this catch phrase from the book âhow to unlikable even when you are pretty gosh darn likeableâ.
Lane has a nice beard.Â Ok, really, thatâs all I can say about the guy.Â Step it up there cowboy, ok?
Andrew, tell them you are a foot doctor!!Â It would explain why you are awkward in the eyes of the other houseguests!
Kathy, I know you didnât want to be on slop for another week, but I gotta sayâ¦.the lack of food as you looking pretty good!
Rachel and Brendonâ¦.get a room!Â Jesus!Â Oh wait, they have the HOH room!Â Or do they?Â Brendon is a have not this week.Â That means he has to sleep in the have not room.Â That means he can have sex with Rachel, but he canât spend the night.Â I hope she doesnât feel as cheap as she looks.
I apologize for the negativity in this blog.Â The houseguests this season are bugging me.Â There isnât anybody who is jumping out to me.Â Where is this seasonâs Evil Dick, Jace, Dr. Will, Boogie, Janelle, Howie, etc?Â I donât know if there is anybody in that category this Summer.Â That kind of bums me out!
Tonight, on Big Brother it was revealed that Annie was the mysterious saboteur that was wreaking havoc on the Big Brother houseguests.Â Then, Annie was voted out of the house.Â Awesome.
It seems that every year a twist is thrown into the game and every year, the twist is a letdown.Â This year, the saboteur concept was cool, but flawed from the start.Â Â Why?Â The plan all along was to reveal the identity of the saboteur on the showâs third episode.Â Why is that a problem?Â Let me explain.
My wife, Marisa, is a huge fan of mysteries.Â She spent a good part of the last week trying to figure out the identity of the saboteur.Â My wife wasnât alone.Â My brother, Katie, a handful of interns, some of my former co-workers, and friends were all speculating on the saboteurâs identity.
Kudos to my wife for correctly guessing that Annie was the saboteur.Â How did she figure it out?Â She noticed something after the food storage room was padlocked.Â She analyzed the room and while Brendon and Andrew were singled out for not being on the couch, Annie was quietly sitting on the floor.Â Not only was she sitting on the floor, but she was also wearing a sweatshirt with pockets.Â Yes, a sweatshirt with pockets that could have easily concealed a padlock.Â My wife is good.
Where do we stand now?Â One week in, and the most talked about Big Brother twist in a long time, is over.Â Thatâs the bad news.Â The good news is that I personally think that Big Brother is at its best when there arenât any twists.Â All you need to do to make Big Brother great is to put a dozen people into a house and cut them off from the world.Â You donât need anything else!Â Isolation, boredom, and personality differences will always cause drama.Â Throw $500,000 into the mix and the fun gets cranked up.
Here is my take on the vote.Â Annie going home was the right move for the house.Â She made a very valid argument for staying, but in the end, she had to go.Â Sure, Rachel and Brendon are in a âshowmanceâ, but everyone knows they are together.Â Itâs not a secret therefore it doesnât pose a threat.Â Not to mention that they have developed a close bond after only 13 days!Â Just imagine the emotional impact it will have on them when they get split up after 30 days!
After the vote, I looked at my wife and said that âit sucks to be Brendonâ because everybody now thinks heâs the saboteur.Â I thought that his days were numbered.Â My wife said to me ânot if Rachel wins HOHâ.
Marisa is good, huh?
Your new HOH is Rachel.Â Who do you think she should put up this week?Â Iâd personally like to see Lane and Hayden.Â Iâm pretty sure that weâll see Hayden go up as a way of getting back at him for this past weekâs nomination.Â The second nomination?Â Iâll go with Lane only because heâs too good looking and frankly, the way my wife watches Big Brother, I donât need any more competition in the Big Brother house, or my own!
Will Lane go up?Â I doubt it.Â My real picks for nominations?Â Hayden and Andrew.
Letâs see if Iâm right!Â I have a weird feeling that I will be wrong!Â This is the Big Brother house after all!
Who do you think will be nominated?Â E-mail me Jason@endonline.com or post a comment here on the blog!
Last night on Big Brother we had our first Power of Veto competition.Â Brendon and Rachel (the couple with âchemistry) were on the block.Â Brendon won the POV competition and removed himself from the block.Â Annie was put up in his place.
My wife is convinced that Annie is the saboteur.Â I still have my eyes on Andrew.Â How will the vote play out?Â They always say that anything is possible, but I would be shocked if Annie was still in the Big Brother house after tonightâs show!
Annie is the type of Big Brother player that usually lays low in the game and gets by week after week, by quietly manipulating other houseguests.Â In Big Brother history, this type of player typically gets very far in the game and by the time the other houseguests realize the danger, it is too late.Â I say kick Annie to the curb this week, or watch out, because sheâll take herself to the late stages of the game.
Now, here are a few questions for you guys to ponder:
Is it possible for Rachel to have a more annoying laugh?
Should somebody tell Lane that mayo isnât dairy?
Does Hayden have a very large sweatshirt, or a very small head?
Whatâs with the meow thing Enzo?
Even though heâs a doctor, would you let Andrew touch your feet?
Am I the only one who finds that girl from Philadelphia unbelievably forgettable?
Isnât it refreshing that Monet wasnât cast on the show because she fit an African American stereotype?
Do you wish they wouldnât tell us who the saboteur was?

Last night, the plan was to sit down and watch episode 2 of Big Brother 12.Â Thenâ¦.life threw me a curveball.Â Here are the details of my Sunday night and a quick recap of Big Brother from last night.
It was a few minutes before 8pm.Â My wife and I were about to sit down to watch Big Brother 12 off of the DVR.Â Then Maizee, our 9-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, went outside to go pee.Â When she did, there was a little bit of blood in her urine.
30 minutes later, we were sitting in the waiting room at the pet emergency room.Â After waiting for over an hour, the vet came into see us.Â Luckily Maizee wasnât showing any symptoms at all of kidney problems.Â They still wanted to run her through a ton of tests including a test where sheâd be knocked out so that they could look up her little girl dog who-ha!
We asked âwill she make it through the nightâ?Â The vet said yes.Â We took her home.
By this time, it was after 10pm and I was really tired and went to bed.
This morning, my wife took Maizee to the vet.Â As of a few minutes ago, we found out that lil Maizee has a bladder infection.Â Sheâs going to be just fine.Â Our vet has no future plans to drug our dog so she can look up her who-ha!Â Iâm not sure how Maizee feels about that, but I am most certainly relieved!Â Sheâs only 11lbs!Â Her who-ha is smaller than the size of a dime!!
Back to Big Brother.Â When we went to watch the show.Â The DVR screwed up the recording and I wasnât able to watch the whole show.Â I saw a few minutes of the show, but it was the first Big Brother episode that I have missed in years!
I know that Brendon and Rachel were nominated for eviction.Â Without seeing the show, I donât know what was said at the nomination ceremony.Â I also donât know if they showed Brendon and Rachel hooking up!Â Did they show the women in the house getting grossed out by Brendon because of his masturbation habits???Â All I have to say isâ¦âthank god for Big Brother After Darkâ!Â Without BBAD, I wouldnât have all these juicy details.
Maybe juicy is the wrong word to use.
Big Brother Updates and blogsâ¦..return after the next show!!Â FYI: I usually have more to say on eviction nights.
(Jason from the Wake Up Call is a HUGE fan of CBS's Big Brother. Â If you've never watched Big Brother, this blog will give you the info you need to watch the show without being confused! Â It's also a great place to hear Jason's thoughts on the summer's HOTTEST show!)
It was a few minutes before 7:00 PM.Â The TV was still on ESPN because my wife and I had just watched Lebron James announce that heâll be playing basketball in Miami next season.Â There was a commercial for (frequent Wake Up Call Sponsor) Vitamin Water.Â While my ears heard the Vitamin Water commercial, in my head, I heard something different.
Dun, Dunâ¦dun dunâ¦dun dunâ¦.
I know thatâs not the theme song to CBSâs Big Brother, but if your summer plans always include plopping down in front of the television to watch the houseguests, you are familiar with that little tune.
Let the drama begin!Â Dun, dunâ¦.dun, dunâ¦..dun, dunâ¦
This season on Big Brother we have a unique twist.Â The twist is that there is a saboteur living in the Big Brother house trying to sabotage the game for the other players. Now, Iâm sure there are a few people who will say that Big Brother took the saboteur concept from the failed ABC reality show âThe Moleâ.Â To those people I say, âread a mystery bookâ.Â The concept isnât new.Â Itâs just new to Big Brother.Â Letâs move on.
On the surface, Big Brother is a silly reality show full of hot, young people.Â To many people Big Brother is nothing more than MTVâs âthe Real Worldâ.Â If youâve watched the show, you know how ridiculous the comparisons are, because there is as much, if not more strategy to the Big Brother game than almost any other reality game show on television.Â Yes, that includes Survivor.
Yes, Survivor has players living in deplorable conditions while dealing with the stresses of bad weather and starvation, but on that show, if you are weak, you are usually doomed for failure.Â For the record, I love Survivor.
Big Brother is similar, but different.Â Big Brother is a human chess game.Â Yes, there are physical challenges, but the most important part of the Big Brother game is social.Â Big Brother is a game that weâve all played in our own way.
When you were in middle school, did you ever do something to try to fit in?Â When you were in high school, did you ever laugh at something that wasnât funny because everyone else was laughing and you didnât want to stand out?Â Did you get picked on?Â Did you hate the football players or the cheerleaders?Â Did you think you were smarter than they were?Â Did you secretly wish the popular kids would fall from grace in your school?Â Do you have a job where an ass kisser almost got the promotion, but you did because unbeknownst to the ass kisser, you were personally friends with the boss? If you ever did any of those things, youâve played Big Brother.
Big Brother is a social game where every move you make might keep you in the game one week longer, or send you out the door in the blink of an eye.Â If you like drama and are a fan of people watching, and you donât watch Big Brother, you are totally missing out on one of the biggest guilty pleasure television shows of the year!
As this season kicked off, we met the houseguests.Â Weâve got the standard Big Brother players.Â The gay guy, the girl (or girls) with big boobs, the good looking hick, the sweet blonde southern girl, the smart guy who doesnât want people to know heâs smart, the girl who plans on using her sexuality to win the game, the cute guy with smile and a brain the size of a tooth, and the hot guy who all the girls drool over, but who is already being lusted over by the gay guy.
This season we also have very religious Jewish houseguest, named Andrew, who wears a yarmulke and brought his own pot to make sure he can cook his kosher food.Â Heâs also a podiatrist, but he is lying and pretending to be an out of work, day trader who is now forced to sell shoes.Â It will be interesting to see how the houseguests respect, or donât respect his religious beliefs.Â If a houseguest tried to spike Andrewâs kosher food with bacon, would Big Brother step in and stop it, or let another houseguest disrespect his religion?
Also this year, we had a bit of Jersey Shore influence!Â We have Enzo! Unlike most of the Jersey Shore cast, Enzo is actually from New Jersey!Â No, I donât know him!Â Heâs an Italian guy from New Jersey.Â Heâs going to say a lot of funny things, and heâs going to fly off the handle very quickly!Â He should be great to watch this year. Â Heâs not a stereotype.Â Heâs from North Jersey.Â Heâs the real deal.Â Pauly D is a stereotype.Â Jesus, heâs from Rhode Island!Â Enzoâ¦now heâs where the Jersey Stereotype comes from!Â Enjoy him this season!
The stabber twist is a lot of fun, but in typical Big Brother fashion, they are totally screwing it up!Â Itâs only lasting five weeks and they are telling us who the saboteur is after only one week!!Â I canât be alone here when I say that itâs more fun to try and figure out who the saboteur is than to watch him/her screw around with the game.Â Am I wrong?
Itâs going to be another fun season of Big Brother.Â To wrap up this first entry into my first Big Brother 12 blog, Iâll make my picks for this season.
My early guess for the saboteur:Â Andrew.Â If Iâm right, this isnât going to be good for the horrible Jewish stereotype that âJews are sneakyâ, but his behavior on the first episode had me shaking my head.Â Really Andrew?Â The houseguests are already suspicious of each other, and you decide to mess with them when the lights were out?Â Really?Â What had me most suspicious?Â The way he dove behind the couch and pretended that he wasnât tossing pillows.Â If you are playing a practical joke, come clean.Â He seemed like he dove behind the couch because he was afraid he was about to get caught!Â (Backup pick: Kathy, the deputy Sheriff from Arkansas)
My first prediction for the winner of Big Brother 12: Ragan.Â Gay guys have had a very tough time with Big Brother in the past.Â I donât think it has anything to do with being gay.Â Itâs just that the gay guy always seems to make a bad decision about Â¾ of the way into the game.Â Why do I pick Ragan?Â Heâs a professor that teaches communications.Â With that level of education, he must have some sort of training when it comes to reading body language.Â He should also be good at manipulation.Â If he has good street smarts as well, Ragan could be a force in the Big Brother house. (Backup pick: Brendon, the swim coach from Riverside California)

This is the shortest Big Brother Video Blog yet! Â Watch this video. Â It's less than a minute long. Â It's pretty easy to figure out which Big Brother houseguest has gotten under Jason's skin. Â Please comment. Â Am I wrong????
Here is my latest Big Brother Video Blog. This time I talk about "romance" in the Big Brother house. If you watch the video, please leave a comment. Some people are following me on Twitter @JasonWakeUpCall and they are telling me the video works, but the comments don't work. Others are telling me that the video isn't working. It works fine on my end here.....anyone???
(Oh yeah, it's also in the dark...on purpose. This time, not to make a point, but to set a mood.)
The first live eviction is over and I am back with my thoughts about the latest episode of Big Brother! This video focuses on the Braden controversy on the house and the new head of household....Ronnie.
Here is Big Brother Video Blog 4. Â I had two things to do tonight before bed. Â Do my Big Brother Video Blog and shave. Â I always have people making fun of my horrible facial hair. Â A Big Brother fan wrote me an e-mail talking about my lame attempt at a beard. Â I figured I could shave while doing my Big Brother video blog.
Also, before you watch, I want to apologize. Â Maybe the shaving threw me off, but I mistakenly put Michelle (the neuroscientist) in with the off beat group. Â I meant to say Lydia a few times and accidentally said Michelle. Â Sorry!!
Here it is, Big Brother Video Blog 4! Â (While Shaving)
