There’s one show I absolutely can’t wait to watch and that’s Big Brother. Season two is when I began watching the show, faithfully. I watched glimpses of season one but it was quite boring and apparently others felt the same way because in season two they spiced up the show and the viewership took off.

I had auditioned for season seven but didn’t make the cut. I was a bit disappointed, but that’s how things go. I guess I wasn’t interesting enough, but I know I am now and I plan on auditioning for next year’s Big Brother (Big Brother 11), so lock your doors and burn up you TV’s because I’m-a-coming.
