BB12: Episode 1

And so Season 12 of Big Brother begins, and I completely forgot about it. Luckily I was cruising the Comcast guide for something interesting, and there it was: Big Brother Season 12. Sweet.

But here's the thing: So far, no one is really catching my eye. There are some pseudo-interesting folks for sure, but no tattoo-covered punks, pair of middle-aged player outcasts, or token nerdy female like in seasons past. I give CBS a little credit, though, for the token African-American, token gay, and a (surprise!) Jewish cast member - yarmulke and all - but I gotta say that at least from first glance, the cast looks pretty bland. In fact, you know what they look like? They look like the cast of Real World! (And we don't really need another Real World, do we?)

So Episode 1 (at least for me) was a let down. Sure, it's interesting that there's a saboteur, but he or she hasn't done much yet, so that's not too exciting; and besides, what's with the creepy saboteur videos? Is that really necessary?

My highlight of the week? "I lost my dignity on a slippery wiener," said Britney. Priceless.
