"Big Brother" Is The Show Of The Summer

Get hooked on the summer's greatest game.

"Big Brother" Is The Show Of The Summer

A show that can be described as a better and more "Reality-TV" version of “Survivor” is sure to knock your socks off this summer and every summer. Check out some of the best parts and prepare yourself to get hooked on hearing "Tonight on Big Brother..." three times a week.

1. Friendship!

If you’re watching this summer, you’ve met one of the best players this season, Paul. Friendship is most definitely his catchphrase, even if sometimes he has to tell people, “this is not friendship!” But Paul didn’t bring friendship out of "Big Brother." In fact, many of the cast members, each season, continue their friendships beyond the show.

2. Showmance

Creating a relationship with someone on the show might not always be the best game move, but it definitely provides some entertainment. Plus, you know someone will have your back at least in the beginning. This season James and Natalie, Corey and Nicole and Paul and Zakiyah have all had showmances. Of course, we can’t forget Jeff and Jordan who met in BB11 and got engaged during season 16.


"Big Brother" wouldn’t be "Big Brother" without drama, because obviously someone can’t keep their mouth shut or someone disagrees. The good news is, the person who can get away with the lies the best and play the game correctly won’t get sent packing.

4. Alliance Names

As per "Big Brother" tradition, when a new alliance is formed among a group or pair of people, the decision of a name is the next most important part. The names are sometimes just as good as the alliances, and that goes both ways. The alliance names can be rather stupid or pretty clever. Parallel to the fact that some alliances last days where others can last the entire game without too much betrayal. Some of the most known alliance names include "The Exterminators," "The Hitmen," and "Chill Town," although there are probably hundreds more.

5. Zingbot!

This one is my absolute favorite! Zingbot is a BB robot that comes on once every season and disses every player in a creative way. It’s always exciting to hear what he comes up with and to see the player’s reactions. It is a cannot miss episode.

6. Twists

Each season has its very own twists to keep the housemates/contestants on their toes. Often times these twists involve the audience (yes that means you!) For example, below you'll see Liz and Julia from season 17 who began the show switching places with one another. If they escaped eviction for the beginning few weeks, both sisters would be allowed to permanently join the game.

7. Less Wait!

There is an episode three times a week! Some shows only let you watch once a week. What’s the fun in that? You’ll always stay engaged with BB this way.

8. It’s relatable and quite entertaining.

You’ll see what I mean.

Besides, even if you think it’s too late to catch up on this season (which you can do online), there is a new season with new people at the beginning of each season. On top of that, you already have 18 seasons to re-watch and learn the game, so you, too, can be a super-fan. Join the BB fan club!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
