#BiggBoss — Hellmates dance while Salman - Host of the Show joins in ;-)
This was a Fun and Funny moment in the Bigg Boss House back when the Hell side of the house still existed. Ironic because now that the hell side has been closed for awhile now it’s the Heaven side that is becoming less Fun & more about fighting which is getting old fast. Salman dancing was funny as he got into the moment and forgot all about the guests he had on stage with him. LOL
#SStory4 - Tiago and Bernardina’s Secret Story Wedding
Here are some pictures of Tiago and Bernardina’s Fake wedding inside the secret story house as part of a wedding entertainment task made especially for the showmance couples. It was suppose to be a dual wedding but Sofia got upset at Diogo over something silly and canceled their wedding. However she had her own ceremony a few days later.
“Big Brother” producer Endemol has bought a stake in Israeli broadcaster Reshet, according to local press reports.
Netherlands-based Endemol has inked a deal to invest 100 million shekels ($28.5 million) in Reshet, which is one of the franchisees that airs Channel 2. Part of the coin will be used to purchase Reshet stock and part will be a loan. The deal is subject to regulatory approval.
Israel has become a hot-bed for the creation of reality show formats. In April, Endemol took a majority stake in Israel’s Kuperman Prods., which it relaunched as Endemol Israel.

#SStory4 — Erica does a Striptease for Tiago encouraged by Bernardina
I have already posted the Pictures but if a picture paints a thousand words a Video paints a Million. And lets face it Video is always better ;-)
Taigo is the Victim and the Striptease is being performed by Erica the wild child of the House. The Blonde is Bernardina and Tiago’s Showmance in the House. She told Erica to pick Tiago as her next Victim and of course Erica cheerfully agreed. However it looks like Bernardina had more fun with the striptease than Tiago - Fetish maybe? LOL Anyway Enjoy!
Here is a Task that took place the week Elli was Evicted. She had to compete against Sangram as they were nominated by their fellow housemates for being worst performers during the Thief - Police Task. The Loser of the Pole task would be automatically nominated the following week. They had to stay on the pole as long as they could while they were drenched in cold water and had smoke blown in their faces. Well it didn’t take long for Sangram to fall off and say he slipped but later said he threw the challenge so Elli could win. He kept giving Elli faces during the challenge trying to hint he would fall off and Elli on the other hand kept telling him not to quit as she wanted to win fair and square. So when Sangram fell she got pissed because she felt he Lost on purpose and her win didn’t seem like a victory.
However the Host of the show gave her credit for doing a great job against Sangram and said her win was valid despite whether or not Sangram fell on purpose or claimed he did so he wouldn’t look weak losing to a Girl. This made Elli Happy. As for Sangram he got lucky because the following week when he was nominated the Production team decided their wouldn’t be any eviction that week. So the whole Pole challenge was a waste despite the fact that Elli did a great job.
One of the cool things about the Pinoy Version of Big Brother is they have a Regular (18 to 35 yrs old ) version and a Teen ( 12 to 17 yrs old ) version of the show. This is something not yet seen anywhere else in the world and makes them Unique.
#BBB - New Format Change for Big Brother Brasil 14 ? - Shhh it’s a Secret
A Little BB Birdie has revealed that Big Brother Brasil Producers have a new surprise twist in store for the 14th Season of Big Brother Brasil due to start January 2014. What is this twist? Well the heading of this post gave a clue. Rumor has it they are planning to change the Game format by copying and adding the popular game element of The Secret Story format. Just like in Secret Story the new housemates will be going into the house with secrets they must hide from all others. These secrets will be revealed and/or discovered by other housemates throughout the season. Secrets is the main game element that makes Secret Story entertaining and different from regular Big Brother. But how much is Big Brother Brasil willing to copy from Secret Story is still up in the air. If they copy it exactly the same then they can’t really call themselves regular Big Brother anymore. It would have to be called Secret Story Brasil but since until now the name remains the same Big Brother Brasil then I can guesstimate they will find a way to handle the secret element a bit different, while combining both the regular Big Brother and Secret Story game formats together to make one Entertaining Hybrid Show. So if the BB Birdie is correct and the rumor turns out to be true, then it’s going to be a Hybrid Big Brother Game I’m looking forward to watching.
Other Detail worth mentioning:
The Director Boninho has made a statement that he will be less active with the New Season of BBB14 and instead would be splitting and delegating more responsibilities to other members of his Production Team. The idea behind this is he plans to dedicate more of his time toward other programs and new projects in the network. However the fans are not too happy with this news because they fear without Boninho BBB would not be the same. Hearing this Boninho stated he will still be around but more in a background role, while he believes confidently that his production team made up of young fresh talent deserve the chance to take command and bring in a new feel to the show. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons they are changing the Big Brother format. However with this news there is now speculation that BBB14 will be Boninho’s last season and in 2015 he will hand over the baton to his full team. Guess we will have to wait and see since nothing has been set in stone yet.
Stay Tuned for more Details! ;-)
Update: BB Birdie has revealed the New season of Big Brother Brasil will make History as it will be the first season with 20 Housemates from the Start of the Show, usually they have around 14. I’ve seen other Big Brother shows like Grande Fratello and Gran Hermano with up to 27 to 36 players but some usually enter the game during the season. Their are other Big Brother shows that had a lot of Housemates and one that comes to mind is Big Brother Africa they had 28 from the start but they usually have 2 houses to balance things out. So although I have seen other Big Brother shows with a lot of housemates, it will be interesting to see how Big Brother Brasil handles it. And yes More Housemates = More Drama ;-)
#SStory4 — Débora singing in the Secret Story House
Ok I posted this video to show why I like International Big Brother and Secret Story. Here you have one of the Housemates Débora playing her Guitar in the House. Yep you read it right. As a Musician she sings around the house all the time and she is pretty good, you can catch most of it on the Livefeed but on occasion she is allowed to play her guitar to entertain the other housemates. Now that is cool! Something you wont see in alot of Big Brother shows especially those that don’t even allow you to sing or even hum a tune. You know which Big Brother I’m talking about (Cough) BBUSA ;-) So when I see stuff like this I question all the excuses some Producers make about not allowing music in the Big Brother House. So if you think this only happens in Secret Story you would be mistaken. In fact there are many international Big Brothers that even show live House parties on the feeds without censoring it. Again the Copyright and Royalties excuses are nonsense. If other Big Brothers can allow music then they obviously are working the right deals to make it happen, so dahm those excuses. So the more you watch BB shows that allow music the more boring those that don’t allow it seem in comparison.
Anyway that’s one of the reasons why I like to watch Big Brother from around the world, they tend to surprise you in many fun and unique ways and keep things entertaining. And isn’t that what Big Brother is suppose to be? Entertaining along with great gameplay. Obviously some production teams are better than others at understanding this concept ;-)
