Big Brother 13 as a watchable four minute movie trailer

Big Brother 13 has been turned into a movie trailer starring its primary protagonist/antagonist, Brenchel, aka Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas.

Watching this does violate a significant rule of Big Brother, which is my required end-of-season purge of all memories, which is the only thing that permits me to waste three more months the next summer.

Anyway, the video comes via Hamsterwatch, and its creator, Jeremy Woods, says that “Big Brother 13 is my favorite season of Big Brother, because of Brenchel,” and he also calls it “the BEST season of Big Brother.” Big Brother 6 and I would disagree, but one person’s treasure is another person’s trash.

His celebration of the season becomes, for me, the only way I could possibly revisit it: in just over four minutes, with a loud soundtrack drowning out large parts of the stupidity.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
