Big Brother 12 - Season Premiere Blog Party Post

big brother,jackiestvblog

Yes! It's finally here -- a new season of Big Brother! As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with major happenings. My full review of the show will be posted over on TV Squad at a later time. The real fun of this all is the comments area. Everyone is invited to jump in with your thoughts as the show airs or afterward. Remember, it's okay to trash the hamsters on the show, but please treat others here in the community with respect. Not everyone is going to have the same favorites or see the same things on the show. That's part of the entertainment!

The community here is second to none. I haven't heard yet from Margo on a blog pool. Unfortunately, I'm going to have a lot on my plate for the next few months and don't dare extend myself. But if someone wants to take it on, it's relatively simple. Blog commenters ask to be in the pool, their names are shuffled and hamsters are drawn, and they cheer on that hamster as long as they're in the house. As the hamsters are eliminated, the pool results are posted with the show entry. We don't really offer any prizes, but there are those bragging rights!

The show's about to start here on the East Coast. Get your snacks and drinks and let's watch us some new hamsters!

Whoa ... over 15 minutes before the first commercial break. So far, we had intros and they're in the house. Julie told them there's a saboteur. Hmmm ... I don't know. Lane is quietly suspicious, but I think he's quiet and perhaps not all that bright anyway. I know. That was mean, but he said he's not smart first!

HOH has them riding slippery huge hot dogs across a giant grill. If they fall, do over, teams of two. Britney hurt her knee, commercial.

Hayden won HOH, Money won MoneY - 10 grand.

The saboteur turned off the lights, then locked the storage room so everyone has to eat slop.

Hello to all
Add me to pool blog if you guys start one.
Thanks Jackie

PlaidChick said...

Hello everyone!! Happy Summer, and Happy Big Brother, can't wait, and glad to be back!

monty924 said...

<----- Not sure if I'll like him or not, but for now he is my Eye-Candy for the season.

I have a huge pitcher of strawberry Sangria, and all are welcome.

Splash!

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and everyone! Long time, no see. If there is a pool, I wanna swim.

PlaidChick said...

Holy Cow. big boob/chemist girl, are those the biggest in the BB house yet???!

meb said...

Hi Everybody... we're back! YAY!

Lisanne said...

Hi all. It has finally started!

Jackie, if Margo isn't doing a pool, I can take a hot at it.

PlaidChick said...

NOOOO!!! The Dustin shirt is back!!!

Delee said...

Here we go all...
Pool also when one forms!

monty924 said...

I could do without the Dustin gray V-neck myself.

Hmmm, initial impressions... I think the bi-sexual gal is one to watch. She seems smart and already on to some of the HGs.

Sally said...

Hi everyone. Let the games begin!

Add me to the pool, Lisanne. Thanks for taking that rsponsibility! Hope Margo is okay.

Jackie said...

Lisanne - I know Margo has some problems with her mother being ill. If you want, go for it. I can create a post later asking people who want to be in the pool to speak up so you can gather names.

Laurie said...

Sliding in with sliders, chips and guacamole ... all locally grown, of course!

Cheers, everyone!

Becky said...

Julie looks good.

TerryinCA said...

wahoo! I am thrilled its back! Im watching them introduce themselves....cannot wait for the drama!

monty924 said...

I think Julie looks very, um... matronly tonight. What's up with that? She's usually sparkly on opening night.

JimmyB said...

I'm surprised they're being told about the saboteur. Hmmmmmm.

JimmyB said...

Monty--Thanks for the info on the other comments.

meb said...

ok... THE bOOby and heh, heh, girl can go. She's going to lose me just by her laugh after each sentence.

There are some nice looking hunks in there, and I also like Enzo for the moment.

monty924 said...

I loved the saboteur video they showed. Its funny! I hope we get to mess with them again. :)

SharonS said...

I still think the saboteur is Lane, but Kristin has a guilty look on her face...

PlaidChick said...

Booby girl needs to go, I like Annie, and she could have a good game, but do we need to hear in every DR she's bi?

monty924 said...

You're welcome, JimmyB. I love your Moe Avitar! :)

Delee said...

Terry you can actually watch it in real time!

joy n said...

1st Comp!

Delee said...

Okay Rachel can go now! She is so irritating!

Lisanne said...

Thanks Jackie, I'll will also grab all the sign-ups out of this post later on. So far:

Lars
Becky
Delee
Sally

monty924 said...

Kristen looks like/reminds me of Monica Seles!

Becky said...

I think revealing there is a saboteur is pretty ingenious. They will be so paranoid that they will be skittish the entire time. Wish Tex had said more. Did I just think it or did he actually turn red when they were discussing it. At this time I would not be sorry to see Rachel, Ms. Vegas, go. I don't think Enzo doesn't care for the Weiner.

monty924 said...

Me too, Lisanne. thanks!

SharonS said...

I like Brendan for the win....unless people take him out for being logical!

Sally said...

I was just thiking that I don't like Britney very much...then she gets hurt, so now I feel like I can't dislike her.

joy n said...

Lissanne, count me in, too.

SharonS said...

Lisanne--add me!

Jackie said...

So far only one has totally annoyed me. Rachel, Ms. Boobs Galore.

joy n said...

That podiatrist is getting on my nerves already. Just a little tho.

monty924 said...

A male hamster will have to HoH, because the women can't hold onto that thing. :( Actually, I wouldn't want to be the first HoH. It didn't do Kale (?) any favors, but then again she didn't do herself any either.

Jackie said...

Lisanne - Thank you for doing the pool! Of course, you can throw me in. The heat wave has been way too much this week!

meb said...

Add me to the pool too. This game for HOH is brutal. How long do they have before it's over. The last one to successfully get on the other side is the HOH, Julie said. Do they all have to get over or is there a time limit and then the last one who made it is HOH.

See. questions already!

JimmyB said...

"I lost my dignity on a slippery weiner".

A great line for BB history.

Donna from FL said...

Hi all ! count me in the pool too Lisanne
Rachel is going to annoy me if she stays

monty924 said...

--------------->

First HOH, it could be a curse! ;)

SharonS said...

Anyone else think Annie is getting excessive diary room clips?

joy n said...

Kathy doesn't seem to be in great shape for being a cop.

PlaidChick said...

oooooo Monty are you psychic over there?!

Sally said...

Jackie, That heat wave you're having sounds miserable! Hope the a/c is working well for you and Vincent.

It's frustrating not to know the houseguests yet. I'm having great trouble matching names with faces and jobs, etc. I know one thing for sure: there are a couple of nice looking young men in the house.

Delee said...

Meb, first team to get all across wins and last one over is HOH. Play till done, no time limit. Anyone else feel it was rigged for a guy to be HOH? I do not see a girl would stand a chance to be alone to get on it!

PlaidChick said...

Lisanne, count me in, although I jumped floats when I got natalie last year.

Delee said...

Sally, it is brutal 90's and warm at night. This is not usual. We are hotter than Florida!

monty924 said...

PlaidChick said...
oooooo Monty are you psychic over there?!
****************

Nah, he just fell for the "give the dummy the first HoH", big time. I would have said, "No, you take it", LOL

meb said...

No favorites yet. Why couldn't the yellow team do the same thing as the red team and have the girl jump up and grab the top straps to get across. Was that the sheriff on the yellow team who kept falling off. Sheriff/saboteur??? Actually I think it's either the gay guy or the genius...

Joe in NY said...

Hello everyone!!!

Is it just me or is anyone else already tired of the redhead! LOL

PlaidChick said...

Ok the Saboteur needs a new name

PlaidChick said...

Joe, noone likes her

Joe in NY said...

that "genius" may be "smart" but he's an ignoramus. Anyone who has to spend all his time telling you how smart he is is more insecure than smart.

My favorite so far is the bisexual (Annie?)

The redhead and Enzo totally annoy me (hate Jersey posers!). Kind of like this week's HOH also, he seems like a nice, kind of shy guy.

Does anyone know how long they've actually been in the house already? I mean they were running Facebook Saboteur promos for a couple weeks so they must have already been sequestered...no?

And am I a cynic or do I think they were all just faking the key thing? After all, what did they think the camera crew was for?

monty924 said...

I hate that they went back to the Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday schedule. I liked it better on Tuesdays. Ugh!! My first complaint on the season, LOL

Delee said...

Dirtbag sounds good for the saboteur!

Joe in NY said...

I may have to go see my doctor. There must be something wrong with me. I seem to be in agreement with monty and meb... :)

SueGee said...

Howdy - late as always.

Sue on the Left Coast

Jackie said...

Joe - I believe they entered the house either last Thursday or Friday.

joy n said...

Anyone else think it was kind of 1984-ish for Brendon to assume that it was bedtime because BB turned the lights out?

monty924 said...

Joe in NY,

Hey, good to see you back. They reportedly went into the house on Saturday, 7/3/10.

Looking forward to a full and fun season of BB with all of y'all.

Joe in NY said...

I know they changed the name, but how different is the Saboteur from "America's Player". Maybe they'll give him/her some more nefarious deeds to perform but it's mostly the same gimmick isn't it?

I'm so excited that it started. I've been so bored with just work, work, work. I needed me some BB for amusement.

monty924 said...

Joe in NY said...
I may have to go see my doctor. There must be something wrong with me. I seem to be in agreement with monty and meb... :)
****************

What, what, WHAT? LOL

SueGee said...

Put me in the pool too Lisanne! I would have volunteered to help but I'm going on a little staycation in a week

SueGee

PlaidChick said...

Joe~ They've been in the house since last Saturday the 3rd.

Deelee~ ROFLMAO, that's a good one. I was thinking pooper or something of that extent because you know BB has to use french words for some odd reason for every twist.

Joe in NY said...

Thanks Jackie and Monty, do they sequester them before that. because I've been seeing those saboteur things on Facebook for more than a week and, I think, almost 2 weeks.

Lisanne said...

Pool so far:

Lars
Becky
Delee
Sally
monty924
Joy N
SharonS
Jackie
Lisanne
meb
Donna from FL
PlaidChick


In order to get the pool up before the next show (Sunday night), I'll take names up through Sunday morning.

Sharon S said...

Just checking to see if I actually changed my posting name via google from my teacher name to the name I use with adults...

In the meantime, I think Brendan is my favorite this year, but no one to hate yet. How can that be?

Lisanne said...

Ok, SueGee, I've got you as well.

I am kinda on vacation as well, after all that's what us grad students (the new name for college professors you know) do over the summer.

Jackie said...

Joe - They're usually sequestered a week to ten days before going into the house. The saboteur stuff didn't get released before they were in sequester.

PlaidChick said...

And why did the young blonde chick do the cheerleader woohoo when she got knocked out of the HOH game.. that was a bit dumb or did noone catch it?

Joe in NY said...

I just checked BB's facebook page. 1st mention of the Saboteur was on 6/29. Hmmm....???

meb said...

Oh No! Joe in NY in agreement with little ole me... Actually, didn't I say I sort of liked Enzo, for now anyway. But definitely in agreement about the redhead... she is totally annoying.

Sally said...

It's interesting that most of the the educated people with careers feel they have to lie about their real lives so they're not viewed as threats by the other houseguests. Then they feel the need to repetedly remind the home viewers about how intelligent they really are.

SueGee said...

Lisanne, I work at a big University and all the new grad students are arriving and they are a pita

Now who has found a way to watch real time from the West Coast??

SueGee

chris said...

lisanne add me to the pool please
welcome back big brother fanatics.
I don't think nayone hwo got any diary room time is the saboteur, so that eliminates at least 7
Kristen is my hubbies bet
I think maybe Lane
but kristen did look guilty

monty924 said...

Awww, that brings back memories of my Pigpen avi. I can't wait to check out the new chops over at SS. It's a crime to have to wait an entire year for a new season of BB. :)

PlaidChick said...

Don't forget to head over to

http://survivorsucks.yuku.com/topic/71680/t/BB12-OFFICIAL-Photochop-Thread.html for the BB12 Photochop thread.

They have Andrew over there going into the house and some of them are pretty funny.

Joe in NY said...

Thanks Jackie, that makes sense. I wasn't suggesting anything suspicious but I had just surmised that they must have been in sequester for a while already and wanted some verification.

Plaidchick, I agree with you, I wondered about the blonde's celebration myself. I think I understood it to be relief that she didn't have to keep jumping on the weiner (women hate that if it goes on too long :) but it did seem a little untoward to be celebrating before she knew what the "penalty" was...unless they edited it out of sequence. Seems like it could have hurt her team and celebrating seemed premature.

PlaidChick said...

Monty-- stop it, you psychic!!!

Joe in NY said...

Hey Meb, at least we don't totally agree! LOL

Frankly, a lot of these boys and girls seem a little "vanilla". In more ways than one. Where's the tatooed biker guy, the old man, the old woman...you know what I mean? People with interesting backstories. Say what you want about annoying HGs of the past (Jesse, Janelle, etc.) but at least they were interesting. These guys seem awfully cookie-cutter (although I may be judging them too early). And we have no Asians, no Latinos, one token black girl, one token gay guy and like 8 people that are less than 5 years removed from the HS Pep Squad.

SueGee said...

Well, I guess I will have to watch it in 2 hours and then I can go straight to Showtime!

SueGee

Lisanne said...

An updated pool now that the show has ended here on the east coast:

Lars
Becky
Delee
Sally
monty924
Joy N
SharonS
Jackie
Lisanne
meb
Donna from FL
PlaidChick
SueGee
chris

Joe in NY said...

Sally, I agree with you. Sad commentary on American society: we always vote against people of achievement. LOL

joy n said...

Lisanne, several people requested getting in the pool in the last BB post Jackie wrote up.

Becky said...

I got kicked out of the party and couldn't get back in until I deleted all the cookies.

I kind of think Brent?? is the BBS. But Lane looks guilty.

I have a suggestion -- last one in the pool gets Boob Job. (Can you tell I am trying my best not to get her?)

ML said...

Lisanne please count me in the pool and thanks!

Ditto on the annoying thing(s) about Rachel. No one so far that I immediately dislike. I do like Hayden. He is adorably cute. At least we'll have him to watch as HOH. Better than Rachel, huh?
ML

Joe in NY said...

LOL Becky. I'll take boob job. Since everyone hates her she'll probably make the final four!

Anonymous said...

Jimmy B, "I lost my dignity on a slippery weiner" is the best line in BB history! Still chuckling ;-)

Lisanne said...

Updated to include those posting in the intro posts. Hope I didn't miss anyone, if I did, just give me a shout out by Sunday morning and I'll get you added.

monty924 said...

OMG, I've laughed out loud reading the last several comments. Its good to be back to a BB summer with all of you. After the day I had yesterday and my AC going out this week, you have no idea. Its 93 here and feels like 103.

See you all later... I need to check out other BB happenings. :)

SSW said...

Okay, after 4 years I decided to become legit. I have a Google account. Count me in the pool.

SSW

Janice said...

Lisanne,

Please add me to the Pool....

Now can someone tell me what the pool is? I want to play whatever it is!!

I am so happy about BB12!
Anyone think Britney resembles Britney Murphy??

Janice/GA

SSW said...

I think the petitie blonde with dimples (fell off the weiner) looks like a young Dolly Parton.

tbCA2PA said...

Watch the "Dark" scene several times and the Sheriff girl was missing for several frames from her seat on the couch. I am thinking she is the saboteur.
What do you think?t

SSW said...

Sheriff girl could be the one....

ERIKA said...

I think Matt is the saboteur he has a high IQ and probally can talk his way out of being a target...thats my guess...have the live feeds started yet? I don't see anything posted on jokers yet?

monty924 said...

Julie said they picked someone smart and that could keep their mouth shut. Sheriff girl could be it. :)

Merrilee said...

Lisanne,
Please add me to the pool!
Thanks

ML said...

I have not sunk to watching BB frame by frame yet....so I didn't see her leave the couch, but I already thought Sheriff girl may be the one only because of all her different dramatic reactions to the saboteur news. It seemed staged. Andrew may also be the one. Perhaps his experiment with Judaism and the BB house can only last up to five weeks.

I think it's funny how some already have acted as though they're in teams now based on the HOH competition. Red and yellow are not and should not be sides in the house yet.

I want to see who Hayden brings in the HOH with him to sleep. Feed watchers spill it.
ML

JOJO said...

Hello friends,
Please add me to the pool! This is my first year and I'm excited to be with you all.

PDX Granny said...

OK, it's finally on here on the west coast! YAHOO!!

Howdy to all you BB fans, and thanks to Jackie for giving us a great place to hang out.

It's hot here, so please throw me in the pool as soon as it's set up.

Margo said...

Lisanne -
Thanks for taking over the pool - I have a few names that emailed me.
Becky
Meb
RBennie
Sydney
Margo
Laurie
Nana in NW
PDXGranny
Auntie Leigh
Delee
Jennasmom
Donna in AL
Suzanne
Terry in PA

Margo said...

I have a connection of sorts to Monet and she left St Louis in secrecy 2 weeks ago to be sequestered for the show. fyi

Margo

Sydney said...

HOW THE HECK did I miss the par-tay? I haven't read a think. Hi to everyone. Thank you to Margo for putting me in the pool and thank you to Lisanne for being our monitor this season.

Guess I'll have to watch online -- it's not good to miss the very first impressions.....

PDX Granny said...

I'm already behind! Between the show being 3 hours ahead of me, and my daughter calling and making me pause the show, everyone will already be in bed by time I finish watching! :(

First impressions, I want to like Kathy, the sheriff, but the jury's still out on her. The gal from Vegas is getting on my nerves with her laugh.

On a positive note, I like Britney. She reminds me a bit of Jordan. I also like the gay guy.

What the bi gal (Julie??) said about the saboteur makes sense. I get suspicious of the loudest protester too.

Cha cha said...

I would luv to be added to the pool if it's not too late.
I think right now my favorite is Annie. She should be a detective. I kind if liked Britney as well. In the mens side I like the swim coach(Brendon?) and (hoh) haydon? Can't think of the names for the yummy men yet

PDX Granny said...

OMG! That comp is brutal! I hope Brit's OK.

Cha cha said...

BBAD just started here in the cemtral time zone

Helenann2k said...

Hi All!
If it isn't too late, please add me to the pool. Thanks!

Jackie said...

Margo - I'm fairly impressed with Monet so far on the feeds ... and not impressed with Andrew!

I didn't know you had some names collected for the pool and know that you're spending a lot of time with your Mother (and her ankle). I hope you don't mind that I let Lisanne take a shot!

Buzzmaam said...

i'd like to join the pool, please.

thanks so much, jackie, for keeping us updated again this season. i enjoy your comments!

Mimi said...

Hi Everyone, so happy to be back for another season. Yipeee!

Dr_Celine said...

I am fairly confident that Monet is the saboteur. If I was in Vegas, I'd bet money on it. When the announce that a saboteur is in the house, the cameras never focus on Monet or her face. She crosses first to get the $10,000 which is $10,000 another houseguest WON'T be getting and that she will not be getting either since she can only walk away with the 50 grand. When the lights go out, she is NOT sitting on the couch but when the lights come back on she is on the edge in front of the table on the floor. She is smart and quiet. If I was a betting woman, my money would be on her. Mark my words.

Brent McKee said...

Lisanne, slip me into the pool as well even if I am late to the party.

Anonymous said...

please put me on the pool..Thanks again Jackie for a great job.
Season looks interesting

Lisanne,

Please add me to the pool, if it's not too late.

Thanks!

Add me to the pool (if it's not too late), Thanks!

dla said...

Hi everyone! So happy to have BB back for some entertainment! I also missed part of the show on Thursday so need to watch online or something to get up to speed -

Lisanne, I would love to jump into the pool! :)
