Season 13 of “Big Brother” is back, and Dick is hard-pressed to show the other houseguests how’s it’s done. Or at least that was the original plan.
We’ve come to expect the unexpected with “Big Brother.”?That’s what makes the twists so much fun to watch. Season 13 is twisting the rules once again.
Eight houseguests arrived to walk into the house, only to discover they’d have to pair off. That’s when host Julie Chen dropped the first bomb on the newbies:?they would be playing the game with duos from “Big Brother” seasons’ past.
Adam Poch, Cassi Colvin, Dominic Briones, Kalia Booker, Keith Henderson, Lawon Exum, Porsche Briggs and Shelly Moore are all first-timers.
First impressions don’t always mean much on “Big Brother.” You never know who or what you’re getting.
I had a chance to see these new houseguests beforehand on the Internet. I wasn’t impressed, but I did make early predictions about who I might like. Those predictions quickly changed once the premiere episode ran.
Keith’s actions, especially learning he’s a Deacon, floored me. I could see the mouths of many of his church family drop open. Kalia is a snob, Lawon is over-acting, Shelly is a follower, Cassi seems like your typical model chick more concerned about her appearance and Adam is no Dick.
Porsche and Dominic seemed the most genuine.
The doorbell rang and in walked Brenchel from Season 12 — Brendon Villagas and Rachel Reilly. It rang again and it was Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd (Season 11 winner). It was the last chime that made it all worthwhile for “Big Brother” lovers like me. Dick Donato (Season 8 winner) and his estranged daughter, Daniele, walked back into the “Big Brother” house.
When the houseguests saw who they were playing against, their facial expressions said it all. Talk about first impressions.
The blogosphere went wild knowing Dick was back, but the next day it was learned he would soon depart due to circumstances beyond his control. That saddened his return for me, but I can only imagine what it will do to the rest of the house. Obviously, the dynamics will change.
Strategy has a lot to do with how well someone fares on “Big Brother.” Sometimes you have to be a Dick, while other times being a sweetheart like Jordan can get you to the end.
Let’s see who has what it takes to win Season 13, despite the many new twists. So far, my money is on Daniele, Jeff or Porsche. Who do you think will win?
