Big Brother 15 on CBS and Reality TV News, Rumors, Spoilers
Header

Do you believe most people are fake while in the BB house?

I don’t think that most people in the house were fake they just came off really superficial. I think that sometimes Big Brother can edit certain people certain ways to make them look utterly pitiful, aka Natalie. But in all honesty I just wanted to bring who I was to the house no holds bar and I think some people added to themselves which was sort of unnecessary, it’s reality TV for god sake it’s supposed to be you not some over the top all time person. Although I was over the top at times but that is actually who I am.

“We’d like to give a warm 533.com welcome to “Crazy” James Zinkand.

James will be working out of The 533 Studio for the next couple months, and we couldn’t be happier.

We thought leaving the 24 hour surveillance of the Big Brother House might be a tough adjustment, so to make him feel more at home, we just installed 9 cameras all over the studio. One in the kitchen, two in the bathroom (including toilet bowl cam), one in the movie theater, one at the bar, one at the ping pong table, one in James’ office, one in the freight elevator, and another on the rooftop.

Check back soon to hear what’s cookin’.”

“After being nominated for eviction by Chelsia Hart and James Zinkand, Alex Coladonato and Amanda Hansen were evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER House.

Alex and Amanda were ousted by a unanimous vote of 3-0 by their fellow Houseguests (each couple had one vote and Heads of Household and the eviction nominees do not vote). On Tuesday, Joshuah and Sharon won the Power of Veto, but chose to leave the nominations as they stood, leaving Alex and partner Amanda, along with Matt and Natalie on the chopping block.

During last night’s live broadcast, Alex Coladonato, the 24-year-old DJ company owner from Staten Island, N.Y. and his “Big Brother” match, Amanda Hansen, the 23-year-old paralegal from Fridley, Minn., learned their fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER, Alex and Amanda were interviewed by Julie Chen about their experience.

The Houseguests compete each Wednesday to become Heads of Household. The perks of the position include having a luxurious private bedroom and bathroom, as well as a plasma screen spy cam to monitor other Houseguests’ activities. However, it also includes the responsibility of having to nominate fellow Housemates for eviction. On the weeks when there are veto challenges, one of the nominated couples can be saved from the chopping block if they, or another pair, wins the Power of Veto. If they choose to use the veto power, the Heads of Household must immediately nominate another couple for eviction.

After last night’s eviction, the Houseguests competed in a game called “Words of Love,” in which Houseguests were quizzed on which love quotes posted around the house belong to which author. If a Houseguest buzzed in and answered incorrectly they were eliminated from the game. If a Houseguest was correct, they were able to choose another Houseguest to be bumped from the competition. The last Houseguest standing would, along with their partner, become the next Heads of Household. Sharon Obermueller, the 23-year-old realtor from Olathe, Kan. and her partner Joshuah Welch, the 25-year-old Advertising Media Buyer from Dallas, Tex., won the coveted position.”
