<I>Big Brother 15</I>: Our Six Early Favorite Houseguests

CBS has released photos of the 15 new members of the Big Brother cast, and along with their standard headshots, they included more "fun" poses. Most of them just tried to look cute or serious, but there were a few with some actually personality. So these are the contestants we're already rooting for, based simply on their very telling pictures.

TWoP 10: Reasons We’re Looking Forward to <I>Big Brother 14</I>

Another season of Big Brother is nearly upon us (it debuts next Thursday), and now that they've announced the new cast and this year's twist, we're starting to get excited ... and not just because The Bachelorette is boring us to tears this summer. We'll probably be disappointed by the 14th installment of BB about two weeks in, but for now, here's why there's still a glimmer of hope that this could be a good season.

<I>The Glass House</I>: Better or Worse Than <I>Big Brother</I>?

Can we give the judge who said that The Glass House wasn't a Big Brother rip-off a pair of glasses and force him to watch episodes of both shows? Because while there are a few noticeable differences, ABC's reality series definitely looks a lot like BB to us, right down to the terrible interior decorating. But since we're not in the legal business and have nothing to gain from that copyright infringement lawsuit (aside from maybe one less show to watch this summer), we're more interested in how the new program is better or worse than its predecessor.

TWoP 10: Ways to Fix <I>Big Brother</I>

We're at that point of the summer where Big Brother has become less of a guilty pleasure and more of a thrice-weekly chore. But it doesn't have to be that way. The show could definitely improve and manage to entertain us for a whole summer, if only producers were willing to improve it. Here are the things we'd like to see fixed before next year.

<i>Big Brother</I>: The Anticlimactic Ending to a Really Boring Season

So Jordan won. Which was really no surprise to anyone, except maybe Jordan herself. But then again, everything surprised Jordan. You probably could have told her that Julie was a robot and she would have believed it. She won the show purely by dumb luck, which sounds mean, but is true. She claimed that her best strategic move in the game was winning the final HoH, but she won both stages of the competition by chance. She rolled the balls into the right holes better than Natalie, but everyone is a better competitor than Natalie, and then she basically wrote a random number on a chalkboard and won her spot in the final two. I can't even pretend to think that she actually calculated how many votes to evict were cast during the course of the season. She is not a math genius, or any kind of genius.

TWoP 10: How to Fix <i>Big Brother</i>

The UK version of Big Brother got canceled this week (its final season on Channel 4 will air next year), and while the American version on CBS is doing pretty well ratings-wise, its been a mostly boring/predictable summer with just a few bright spots. We've got some ideas on how producers should liven up our summer guilty pleasure so that it's much more enjoyable for us fans -- and hopefully will boost their ratings.
