BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: The Last BB Photocap of the Year (Sniff Sniff)

Well, another season of Big Brother is in the can. There was plenty of controversy to be had, but overall, I’d say this was the strongest showing in several years. We had great enemies in Amanda and Aaryn, decent heroes in Elissa and Howard, and plenty of stupid arguments involving wine, mattresses, and bathing suits. […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Once You Vote Black, You Never Go Back

Well, another week has come and gone in the Big Brother house, and Head of Household Aaryn has managed to live up to expectations: she dropped a few questionable bon mots (that whole “axed” thing with the Cheez-Its) and of course managed to put the two black people in the house on the block. Admittedly, […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Aaryn Learns To Always Bet On Black

I’m back after an ever-so-brief midweek hiatus. Big Brother continues to deliver the goods, with this week’s drama centering around a one-piece bathing suit and a not-so-secret Moving Company 2.0 alliance. Let’s talk about the latter. Spencer and Howard had the right idea to join forces with the outsiders in the household (ie. GinaMarie and […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Jeremy Finds Himself Low on the Totem Pole

The Moving Company continues to be one of the most epic Big Brother alliance failures of all time, perhaps supplanting The Four Horsemen (er, Santa Monica Van Boys?) for the title of Biggest Flop. This week saw the exit of The Moving Company’s most outspoken member, Jeremy, who was backdoored by Helen in a generally […]


The TV Clique is back to review week 4 in the Big Brother house. Pull up a chair and join us as we dissect everything from Aaryn’s racism to Jeremy’s tattoos. Oh yeah, and there’s talk of gameplay, MVPs, and all sorts of other good stuff. Get your fix here! Join the clique! (We’re working […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Troubles for the Aaryn Nation

We’re only two evictions into season 15 of Big Brother, and already this shizz is off the CHAAAAY-UNNN. Sorry, I’ll never do that again. Seriously though — this show has been a blast this year. I can’t remember the last time I was racing to read the live feeds on Jokers Updates so voraciously or […]

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Shiny Surfaces, Devious Twists, and A Whole Lot Of Boobs

Big Brother 15 is off and running. It’s hard to believe, considering that CBS has traditionally premiered the show after July 4th. Nevertheless, I’m more than delighted to have Big Brother back, and so far, I’m digging the cast. With sixteen members, there’s more potential than ever for cattiness and fights, especially amongst the women […]

Let’s Make Superficial Judgments About The New ‘Big Brother 15’ Cast!

One of my personal traditions every year is to go through the bios of the new Big Brother contestants and form superficial judgments based on random details, physical appearance, and sometimes nothing at all. Well, CBS revealed the cast for this 15th (!!) iteration earlier this week, which means it’s time for me to get […]

VIDEO: Julie Chen Talks About The Chenbot (and ME!!! Sort of)

The thrill never grows old. Julie Chen recently talked to Larry King, host of Larry King Now on Hulu and Ora TV, about her nickname, The Chenbot, which we coined back in the TVgasm days. In the clip above, Julie references the infamous “but first” video that yours truly made in 2006 — one of […]


Well, the decidedly great Big Brother 14 season has drawn to a close, and while there was never really a clear-cut villain (some people pegged Frank, others Dan), the sheer amount of backstabbing, scheming, and ever-changing strategies truly put this cycle in the upper echelons. Sure, it can’t compete with the brilliance of season six, […]
