Chooch: “Six hours and forty-five minutes? WTF? It didn’t take me that long to have my twins!”
Yesterday at 12:40pm PT the live feeds went to *TRIVIA* signaling the beginning of Big Brother’s VETO Competition, an event that happens every Saturday afternoon. This competition was to be extremely important because of who was on the block. The BB crew had been building the set for this game since the day before, so we had all, even the houseguests, been expecting it to be something really fantastic.
We waited…. and waited…. and waited! I cruised other sites. We heard nothing for hours. Rumors started, things like technical difficulties and then this went out over the internet: CBS_BB_Production: We Apologize for the delay, their was a medical emergency during the power of veto competition and the game has been put on hold while we figure things out. The feeds will be back up shortly.
None of it was true. When the feeds came back on at 7:26pm PT, 6 hours and 45 minutes later, it was business as usual in the Big Brother house. Boogie and Frank were sitting in the backyard and Danielle and Ian were playing pool. You would never have known there was ever a competition in that backyard. Everyone was fine. Danielle had just gotten up from a TWO HOUR nap!
The VETO competition only lasted 5 rounds. It seems producers just “forgot” to turn the live feeds back on. The houseguests never even knew they weren’t being watched. Am I angry? I’m more disappointed than angry, at the way we’ve been treated by TPTB this season. Do they really think we are so loyal that we will watch Big Brother and pay for the live feeds, no matter what they do? The blatant manipulations and tampering are over the top and to the point that we can’t pretend we don’t care. But blocking us out for no reason at all? Come ON! There are other sites that are striking today by not watching tonight’s show or DVR’ing it and going on TWITTER to announce their strike. I’m joining this strike today. I am going silent for the next 24 hours here. I will see you all tomorrow.
If you want to join the Twitter strike, use hashtag #bbstrike in your tweets.
