Live studio audience members wanted for Big Brother 10′s Wednesday episodes

Big Brother 10 is searching for live studio audience members for six live eviction episodes, starting with the show’s very first Wednesday episode.

Audiences Unlimited is looking for studio audience members for six Wednesday shows: July 16, 23, and 30, and August 6, 13, and 20. (Tickets are only available right now for July 16, although the site lists future dates.) Since the show is following the same schedule it had this spring–episodes air Sundays at 8, Tuesdays at 9, and Wednesdays at 8–the Wednesday episodes will most likely be the live evictions.

Audience members must wear “Business/Casual” clothing, which means “no shorts, tshirts, ballcaps, etc.” nor “any clothing with large words, photographs or logos that may show up on camera.” In addition, the site says you “will be asked to sign a ‘waiver’ prior to admission giving the production company permission to use your likeness on camera and also acknowledging that you are aware of and agree to comply with the specific rules and regulations of this show.”

While evicted houseguests were once met by fans/extras outside the Big Brother house/trailer, they are now greeted simply by Julie Chen, emphasis on the simply. When there is a live audience for the finale, it seems to be a sycophantic clone army of clapping people who have no actual clue who the assholes stumbling out of the house actually are. This might be a very refreshing change.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
