Time-lapse footage of Big Brother’s veto competition being constructed

Big Brother 14 has gotten more “social” this season, and that has given us a behind-the-scenes video about the construction of last night’s veto challenge.

It’s too brief and not very detailed, and is narrated by the show’s “Social Insider,” who reads off of cue cards and really should not. It also failed to mention that a Mexican food-themed competition would be turned into a bunch of stereotypes by the contestants.

But it’s still interesting to watch the back yard space be transformed for the competition. I hope CBS produces more of this, but with more detail (like the behind-the-scenes of Survivor videos we’ve gotten in previous seasons).

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.
