So Julie Chen released a video on theinsider.com with a tour of the house, and right away cleared up the reason for the grass and bikes inside the house
We always say expect the unexpected,” says Julie. “So this year, things you would expect to find outside, you’re going to find inside, and things you would expect to see inside, you’ll going to find outside.
Oh ok. And the surfboards? Well that’s because they’re in California and it’s a Venice beach theme! Not the most creative theme, but it looks nice regardless….
Then Julie shows us the “whisper room” as I’ll call it which features a really nice big couch/bed that I’d totally love to have in my place. It looks like someone stitched purple fabric around a giant stuffed ice cream sandwich.
She then takes a tour of the outside and reveals the pool, but then I remembered back to the beginning… Hey Julie, where is the indoor pool and jacuzzi? Where are the outdoor bathrooms and beds? Throwing some bikes and fake grass inside doesn’t swap the roles, I want my money back! Wait, I didn’t pay anything.
Not to be completely cynical, the house is actually really nice looking, the designers did do a great job and the houseguests are pretty lucky to be spending their summer there. I think Big Brother is the perfect show for me to be on.. a place where you don’t leave the house. Although, no computer access would drive me nuts.
Anyway, cast members will be revealed tomorrow morning, so I’ll have my first post up as soon as I can! See you then!
