Get a Peek of the New Big Brother 10 House

They usually go all out when customizing the new digs for the contestants on Big Brother, but CBS really out-did themselves this time around. Season 10's cast will be living in home where many of the rooms represent a different decades – complete with kitschy '50s, hippy '60s and punk rock '80s. The outhouse-style bathroom with barrel sinks gets our vote for most creative, but then again, the leather-and-zipper bedding set in the '80s bedroom definitely comes in at a close second. read more

As a fan of your column, I ...

Question: As a fan of your column, I know you dislike Big Brother, and I won't try to sway your opinion, but I have to say that I've been disappointed by how CBS has handled recent controversies about their reality shows like BB and Kid Nation. Every year I expect one or two contestants to be irksome and display some repugnant behavior, but as I'm sure you've heard, many contestants this season have been either vapid, racist, sexist, abusive or all of the above. Amber made deplorable comments about Jewish people, but most of us only found out about them because of the controversy that erupted outside of the normal CBS airings of the show. At the very least, I expected CBS to allow Amber to defend herself during the Early Show morning-after interview that Julie Chen usually conducts with evicted HouseGuests, but now they have blocked all interviews with Amber and the rest of the cast until after the finale airs. CBS could have taken the opportunity to show that any kind of bigotry, ... read more

Finally! BB5's Jase Evicted

Big Brother 5's Jase Wiley was the unofficial (and very manipulative) leader of the Four Horsemen alliance. As fans will recall, Jase annoyed the housemates with his constant personal grooming and incessant chatter about his imagined resemblance to Brad Pitt. (Yeah, riiight.) Not only did his abrasive, in-your-face behavior make him the most hated man in the house, but according to Nakomis, he really did make a stink with his tendency to pee on things! Here, the 28-year-old (supposed) volunteer fireman from Decatur, Ill., clears the air about the Goth girl's claim, his relationship with superperky Holly and his constant lying. We think he's telling the truth this time... TV Guide Online: Are you upset about leaving the house? Jase Wiley: It is feeling good, to be perfectly honest. I was ecstatic to be out of the house. TVGO: Really? That's surprising. Jase: My days were done. I came to play hard read more
