Big Brother 19
As far as reality television goes, BB is a pretty cut and dry, so-bad-its-good source of entertainment. At least, that’s how I felt when the season began.
On day one, BB18 runner-up Paul was thrown into the mix. His return was the first in a long line of Bad Things to happen on BB19. There were vulgar “jokes” about rape. There were various bouts of aggressive, bullying behavior from nearly every single houseguest. There were almost no repercussions. Cody Nickson was even voted “America’s Favorite Houseguest” (and rewarded $25K) after making unapologetically transphobic comments while in the house.
So, the Summer of Temptation is over and Josh Martinez is $500K richer. But there are no real winners in Big Brother 19.
In an act of hilariously terrible writing, a crane fell on a side character to avoid a major plot confrontation. A crane.
