So last night was the first episode of Big Brother 12, and we learn that it is the season of the “Sabatour.” I’m not too sure yet how I feel about this year’s twist. I think that it will be interesting, considering it will make all of the hamsters extremely paranoid. I love paranoid hamsters. They do irrational things and make irrational accusations. It makes for some great television. I do think that the “Sabatour” twist is a little too much like “America’s Player.” I realize that unlike the “America’s Player” twist, this player is not actually playing to win the game. It could make them gutsier, so I’m sure that we will be pretty entertained by them. Just from watching the first episode, my guess is Andrew. He just seems suspicious with the way he was lying behind the couch when the lights came back on. Plus, I think if he was the “Sabatour,” the producers would have told him to volunteer to be the mascot for the first HOH, so he could be safe from elimination. I’m sure CBS has a few more twists up their sleeve for the season. Now, on to my thoughts on the hamsters themselves, I’ll give my thoughts individually first. I’ve already said that I think that Andrew is the “Sabatour.” He just seems a like a plant. I really don’t have too much more to say about him. I find Annie to be a little weird. Something about her makes me not want to trust her. I’m not sure what it is about her yet, but I’ll have to wait to form a better opinion. Brendon lost me at the whole brushing his teeth in the dark thing. Why would he do that? It just seemed strange. I love Britney. She is so freaking cute. I loved during the hot dog HOH competition when she said, “I lost my dignity on a slippery wiener.” I can tell that I will like her. When they first showed Enzo, I thought that the producers were trying to cash in on the whole “Jersey Shore” trend. I guess we’ll see about him. Hayden seems like a typical hamster. He’s athletic and I guess semi-good looking. He’ll fit in just fine, and I see him becoming a key player this season. But who knows, he kind of reminds me of Braden from season 11, and he didn’t last too long. I really expected more out of Kathy after reading in her bio that she was a police officer. She couldn’t even hold on to the hot dog in the HOH competition. I guess we’ll see about her. I’m not sure of the reason yet, but I really like Kristen. She seems cool and down to Earth, but she also seems like she could have some pretty intense game play. I love a player with great strategy. Matt, being the Mensa member that he all so often reminds us that he is, could be a strong player. Let’s not forget, brains took Ronnie pretty far. Rachel has got to be a stripper. Enough said about that. I didn’t really get a good enough read on Monet or Ragan, so I guess I’ll have to wait and see with them too. I find the cast as a whole to be too “pretty.” Some of the most interesting hamsters have not been supermodels. Who remembers Sheila, Renny or Natalie (from the soul mates season, not last season)? I know that they want to use good looking cast members to draw viewers, but how about a few real people with great personalities? Moving on, I loved the first HOH competition and thought it was so funny and cute. All I have to say though about all the hamsters who thought it was so hard is to wait until your first endurance competition. They’ll be dropping like flies. We are left with Hayden as our HOH and no idea who the “Sabatour” is. I think it’s going to be a good season, as always. Until next time, expect the unexpected!!!
