    I love Big Brother. It's my summer guilty pleasure. I like the new twist this year.

    We talked a little about "Fire Me Please" earlier in the thread. It is EXTREMELY funny. I'd love to go on it! I'd be so much fun.

    I think she had it easier. I didn't think that guy in the ski shop did a whole lot to get himslef fired. All he did was try on the merchandise. I loved the guy in the coffee shop though. He was hilarious too.

    I laughed so hard at the guy in the ski shop when he had the sox on his hands and the other employees reactions!
    Then the girl in the pizza place with gum stuck all over her hands and face waiting on that guy!!!!!!!! so funny

    I wonder how you apply to be on that show, or if it's restricted to certain areas right now. Who broadcasts that? I don't remember.

    Upsadaisy, I'm sure you know by now, but if not, the new twist is everyone entered the house with a partner. Each pair thinks they are the only pair in the house. I think I've figured out a couple of them. That is a fun show.

    Yes, I found that out when I watched the first show. It is a nice twist. None of the people really strike me as very interesting yet, but I always think that in the beginning of a season. I love that it is on 3 times a week in the summer when nothing much else is on.

    It is a cooking show (my husband is a chef, so we like to watch it). Each week they have a different task and then two teams compete against each other cooking dinner for a real fancy restaurant. The executive chef chooses a winning team and then they vote someone off. It is a two hour show tonight.

    Hell's Kitchen was interesting tonight. I used to think I would enjoy having my own restaraunt, that's just a little too high stress for me! (Besides, I don't cuss so I wouldn't fit in! :D

    In the 1st show Jessica was the one to nominate and she nominated Andrew. He went home.
    In the second show it was up to Ralph to nominate, he nominated Jessica (after she told him in the 1st show she would never nominate him) and Jimmy. Jimmy went home.

    I LOVE Big Brother too!!! Who won the challenge on thursday? I had to leave and missed the end!

    The brat camp seems like a Nanny 911 for older kids- could be good

    Does anyone watch Family Plots??

    You know, I tried watching that rock star show last night, and for some reason I just couldn't get into it. I even use to LOVE INXS back on the day, but some how just wasn't that interested. Maybe I'll try watching it again.

    Diznee,
    I thought it was going to be Suzie, but I wasn't surprised it was Will. Maybe he's too much of a pretty boy. Ha! Can't wait to see who the pairs are in Big Bro. I'm betting on Eric and Maggie for sure. Of course, I rarely get these things right!

    Labs,
    That Will guy reminded me on Constantine...He was a little creepy when he sang...not quite as bad as Constantine because like you said he is a pretty boy. I was kinda surprised it wasn't Suzie either since she forgot her words.
    Are you wondering why Dave Navarro has to be there?!?!
    The Pairs on Big Bro will be interesting...got some hunches from the last show.

    Ok, anyone watch Brat Camp last night? A few of those little boogers really made me shake my head in wonder. I am extremely curious what it is like in their home. You really don't get to see their families very much like you do in Nanny 911. Makes me curious how many of them are that way due to lack of parenting. Like the one mom who said her daugther sleeps at this boys house a lot. The first thought that went through my mind was, "and you let her?".

    I'm sure it will be on again before the next episode since there are so many reruns during the summer.

    Sorry to hear about your MIL, gigi!

    1. Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law GiGi

    2. I saw Big Brother tonight and I was surprised by a few pairs
    I kinda thought Kaysar and Michael and Ashlea and Jennae but wasnt expecting the two that are dating or the nurse and the firefighter(? I forget thier names). I think that her jealousy will expose them and will get her evicted because the other housemates wouldn't want a real couple to win 1mill and 250,000, although if they pulled it off it would be really funny.
    I'm glad Ashlea was evicted she was annoying!

    I think I missed something. If one of the pair wins, does the other half automatically get the $250,000 even though he/she was eliminated earlier?

    Brat Camp

    My kids are age 7 and under, saw the first half of the brat camp show with us. I think that it scared them a bit! (We have been having temper issues with my oldest son, and my youngest daughter is going through a stage that she thinks she can do everything better than me!) :rolleyes: They couldn't believe that there are kids in the world that really do some of the stuff those kids were doing! I got promises of "Mom, I will never do anything like that!"
    Big Brother and amazing race and survivor are popular at our house! I like when they are after the kids' bed time so that we don't miss anything!

    I thought Brat Camp was pretty good... ABC Family did a similar series in the fall with British kids, which I enjoyed watching, so I'm looking forward to the rest of this one. :)

    But what if only one of the pair is in and someone from another pair?? How could that work? (What serious issues to be thinking about...)

    I think the million dollar prize is awarded only if both make it to the the end. If only one makes it, I think it's 250,000.
    Diznee, I thought the same thing about Will, a liitle creepy. I wonder why Dave is there. Isn't he married to Carmen Electra?
