I was very, very close to deleting Sunday’s episode of Big Brother mid-episode, as the editors cut between Brendon doing his underbite pout and having the same fake-tears fight with Rachel that those dysfunctional twits always have, and the shameless promotion for the absolutely awful-looking forthcoming reality series Same Name, which David Hasselhoff showed up to promote for a few seconds after an uninspired, uninteresting luxury competition that preceded obvious nominations delivered with the same platitudes.
Twist fail. Editing fail. Product placement fail. Relationship fail. The only way this season or week gets redeemed is if Brendon and Rachel backdoor Jeff and Jordan and shake this thin up. There have been some encouraging reports on Twitter, but I’m not holding my breath that something will happen on Wednesdays and Thursdays episodes, because I enjoy staying conscious.
