bbcan3It’s week 2 of Big Brother and that can only mean one thing… the gender lines have been drawn in the astroturf and a battle of the sexes is about to begin. For as long as I can remember watching versions of this show the same thing happens, BBCAN Season 3 doesn’t look like it’s going to buck the trend. But this time the “girl alliance” seems about to fail and it’s all because they forgot the first rule of girl gossip… always check to make sure the bathroom stalls are empty. Rookie move, ladies.

News / Comments Off on #BBCAN 3.03 – To Have and to Have Not (An Alliance)

bbcan3In the interest of full disclosure I am riding the spring allergy Benadryl pink elephant wave this evening so my Big Brother observations are a little less than sharp. Thankfully there weren’t too many nuances in tonight’s episode as they had to pack in both a Have Not competition and Nominations.

bbcan3When we last left the houseguests they had just found out all their belongings, the furniture for the house and all the food were locked up tight in a vault. Oh the humanity! The horror! The hyperbole! Sleep on a hard floor? Not change their clothes? Have only slop to eat? One HG (and I want to say it was Sindy With an S but I’m not sure) described it as how they treat people when they torture them in war. Another exclaimed “We don’t even have a garbage!”

The Canadian Homeless Research Network in 2013 said that 200,000 Canadians experience homelessness in any given year. Actual homelessness. Not “I voluntarily signed up for a game and now I’m sleeping on a floor in a climate controlled studio with running water woe-is-me”, so you’ll excuse me if I’m less than sympathetic to their imagined plight.
