You know you have an addiction-worthy TV show when new promos attract as much attention as “Big Brother’s,” and with that we are ready to start
obsessing analyzing the new commercial released by CBS for the July 12 premiere.
The first thing worth noting here is that Julie Chen seems to be differentiating the “game-changing shocker” and four other surprises that are going to await the houesguests in the very first episode. With that in mind, we’re almost inclined to believe that the four surprises are going to come in the form of (ugh) returning contestants. The wording would just be odd for her to mention four twists and then couple them with another twist later in the same commercial.
The other thing that is strange about this? That CBS chose to remind us that an episode of “Big Brother” is 60 minutes. If the first episode is commercial-free, it may be then worth noting. Otherwise? Not so much especially since Big Brother is always an hour.
The houseguests featured in the commercial are mostly from last season, with Daniele, Evel Dick, Lawon for some reason, and Kathy all getting some airtime. There’s also a few seconds or Ragan’s epic meltdown on Rachel during season 12 thrown in for good measure. Since most of these people (except for maybe Evel Dick) are unlikely to come back on the show again, we can’t really read too much into them showing up here.
Overall, do you think there is anything important at all pertaining to the season 14 game in this promo, and what do you think about some of the twists that are being promised? Be sure to visit our key dates piece to find out when some very important details regarding the season will be released.
