Pictures of the house have been unveiled,
Identities of eight houseguests now revealed…
The gimmick they call a twist declared,
“Dynamic Duos”, um, old houseguests to be paired…
Okay. I can live with that. And I can live with waiting until July 7th, when the show premieres, to see what really gives. I really don’t have any interest or tolerance in hashing over theories and rumors over which dynamic duos will be returning to the Big Brother house.
We have no clue as to which past HGs will actually be getting another shot in the game so until then, let’s get to know aka dissect the poor eight newbies who will be facing that veterans shall we?
These eight (plus one) will have to get over the initial shock of seeing some of their BB heroes and zeroes walk into he house and I really fear for them. I wish I could coach them all season…
All superficial, catty and shallow opinions aside (which are three of my favorite kind actually)…let’s talk about the strengths and weaknesses each of the new HGs are bringing with them on July 7th:
Strengths: He’s followed the show since season one which will serve him well, as the Wikipedia of Big Brother history, when it comes to certain competitions involving facts and figures. He should use his knowledge to his advantage and be quiet about it.
Weaknesses: I don’t really know that there’s a big demand for “heavy metal teddy bears” that he claims to be supplying. Because of his stature and facial hedge he’s already a bit “hard to approach”. Dude, chill out, don’t be so eager or you’ll be ousted.
Strengths: She seems so cool and level-headed that she’s almost too good to be true. Combined with her looks she may be able to last the whole summer.
Weaknesses: She may come off as cold/indifferent. And unfortunately chicks in the house will find her incredibly threatening if it turns out she’s as cool as she seems in her video. She may also fall into the showmance trap and alienate herself further from the other ovaries in the house.
Strengths: He gets that being too strong too soon is a downfall (unlike Adam). He is afraid of STDs so perhaps there is hope for him yet…meaning, thinking with the right head once he’s in that house.
Weaknesses: He says “Meow-Meow” aka Enzo is his “man”. He seems like he won’t be serious enough about gameplay. He’ll need to watch his mouth and listen more than flap his mouth (which he’s admitted he has a tendency to do).
Strengths: Well-spoken (background as a writer) so she’ll be able to formulate any campaigning or lies off-the-cuff and without a hitch. Her fav HGs (Dr. Will, James, Janelle) were all gamers so that’s a good indication that she understands the game.
Weaknesses: She claims to hating “sharing things”, “living with people”, “dirty people” so she may have a hard time adjusting to life in the BB house. She thinks everyone in the world loves her which is never a good thing.
Strengths: He works in human resources so hopefully he is armed with some diplomacy in addition to his sex cravings.
Weaknesses: He predicts he will have the BB ladies swooning over him and wanting to be “Keith’s Angels” which is great if this was pre-Betty Friedan era. He claims to have two sides to him: Professional Keith and Playboy Keith…referring to yourself in the 3rd person will only make your fall three times harder.
Strengths: He may just be obnoxious and annoying enough for someone to want to take him to the end. He’s shed 54 pounds and maintained it so we know he has some discipline beneath all that “buckwahhhhld” (“buckwild” to the rest of us) crazy.
Weaknesses: He seems more a caricature than anything else so the other HGs may be unable to achieve any sort of comfort level with him. But I can’t wait to see him in the Diary Room…if I can understand him that is…he makes up his own words apparently.
Strengths: She claims that taking care of her dad after his heart attack is her proudest accomplishment so there may be some iota of likability to her once she’s playing the game.
Weaknesses: She seems to think her fav past HG Natalie Martinez and the strategy she employed “worked”. Um, it did not. She also thinks “selling herself” is what she needs to win the game. Um, sweety, nobody’s buying your bubbles in that house.
Strengths: Like Adam, she seems to be a true fan and follower of the show which will aid her. She is certainly “tough” in her demeanor (almost masculine?) which will help her through the sometimes brutal/tough times in that house.
Weaknesses: Her background as a “leader” may hamper her ability to go with the flow which is necessary in this game. She also wants to play a “classy” game which sounds great but will eventually consume her gameplay if she let it.
And last but not least…in lieu of an “America’s Player”…I have sent in a “Twitter’s Player”…
Strengths: She has had the best coach, ME, and so she is armed with everything she needs to last the whole three months in the BB house. She hears everything. And she will be tweeting from @Rockytown.
Weaknesses: She has major dietary restrictions so living on slop is not really an option. Nobody in the house will actually know she’s there since Rocky will be living in the walls of the BB house so she will never have the opportunity to become HOH.
