What do you think of BIG BROTHER

Hello everyone... its a new week.
A new week comes with its own challenges, aspirations, goals new beginnings and miracles..
For me the miracles I see even before I step out of my crib.. I hope you do to.

Now food for thought..
I was flipping through channels and I stumbled upon BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED..

A lot of questions just popped into my mind LIKE : what do I really think about BIG BROTHER ...
Do I like the show or do I hate?
Do I feel it should be of the air or it should stay on air?
Do I feel that it has some moral values or none whatsoever?


Then I asked myself how will it look: if a married woman were to be a contestant on BIG BROTHER... I know there was a season where one of the contestants was a man married and if I can remember clearly he had an affair or almost did on TV.

What will it be like if there was a married woman there?
Will she loose her marriage as soon as the show is over?
Will she be the first person to be evicted?

According to my friend, she said that : "if she gets on BIG BROTHER she will be known as the christian sister. Every morning she will wake everyone up, for morning devotion... I laughed so hard that I couldn't breathe. I am sure she will definitely be the first person to be evicted...

Anyways these are my random thoughts.
Seriously do tell me what you think about BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED...

Have a lovely day.
Ciao

  1. My candid opinion is that BBA is for those who do not have any serious thing going on in their lives at the moment!

    Judge me all you want but i do not believe anyone who is in a fulfilling job, a happy marriage or a life changing career pursuit would sit in a house with complete strangers for 90days, hoping on a 1/26 chance to win a mouth watering price money.

    You cant be a saint cos then you'll be voted out pronto! You cant be too wild either (Abby from South Africa was but still didnt win in Season 2)

    So why not play who wants to be a millionaire instead. and be sure ur winnings are based on ur abilities not on chance, viewers'/housemates' prejudice and betrayals.

    That said... some people are making cool money off it e.g. IK Osakioduwa, MNET, etc so why am I writing an epistle????

  2. I have only seen Big Brother in the U.S., but I am a big fan of the show here. You are right about what your friend said, you can't be overbearing AT ALL. You have to be totally chill or people will vote you off.

    There was a beginner artist on the show one year named Natalie and she is a well-known artist now and does that full-time...obviously b/c people know her from the show and want something personally made by her. I love her stuff and follow her blog:

    If you are looking to be known in some creative field, it's a great jumpstart for your career.

  3. I think Big brother is ok and actually watchable. Series and dramas are based on real peoples lives so its nice to watch the real thing. And if you can afford the three months leave in a house where you get things handed to you then why not..
    Plus it can propel an individual and their career so i say it all depends on how you play it.

    @Mbabazi guess that is true. Cos there is a lot of publicity that comes with the show.

  7. @P.E.T Projects - I couldnt agree with you more.

    @Mbabazi - reality shows lately are part scripted part reality. Now although they dont script the actions of the contestants in BB, the production team manipulates bits and pieces in the final cut shown on telly such that alot of the time you never really get the full "real" thing of any particular situation. That potentially creates one-dimensional characters that you either love or loathe.

    I havent watched a BB since the one with the Zimbabwean girl in the BBUK House a few years back that had everybody talking about the show. Makosi was her name if I remember well. Never watched the show here in the US though.

  8. Hmmmm...BBA. I used to be an ardent watcher at some point in my life. Right now, i honestly couldn't be bothered, i stopped watching after Ofunneka's season. The objective of BBA (from the perspective of MNET and the creators) is entertainment and revenue. So, if you are entertained by BBA, by all means watch it.
    We could really get into a long discussion about the moral values of it and what value it adds...what i do appreciate is that MNET knew enough to make it by intentional subscription only, so no underaged viewers with vigilant parents can have access. Again, it's about what entertains you...i do like the creativity i see in display in the house tho

  9. I used to follow the show in the UK and sometimes I watch it here too. I like the tasks they perform and also what one can learn from their human interaction about interpersonal relationships.

  10. I just don't get the appeal. Most families have more drama than a big brother house to start off with already.

  11. I LIKE IT FOR THE REASON THAT IT IS A PLATFORM FOR SOME PEOPLE TO EVENTUALLY GET TO THE LIME LIGHT; ANYONE SMART ENOUGH COULD GO FAR FROM THERE. FOR CERTAIN OTHER PERSONAL REASONS, I CRITICIZE IT.
