Big Brother’s pre-season routine revealed

Big Brother 4 winner Jun Song, who’s still as obnoxious as ever, even in print, walked through her pre-show experience in an interview with TV Grapevine.

While it’s standard stuff–being sequestered with no phone and no TV (only DVDs), having bags searched, not being able to wear clothing with logos–it’s a good walk-through of the experience, if you can stand reading admitted “attention junkie” Jun’s responses (“I followed all the ruuuuules!”).
