Everyone has a guilty pleasure, be it a decadent quadruple chocolate cake (a la mode, for those who are not worried about their kidneys) or watching a group of people through CCTV live in a house that can double as your laboratory rats. Wait, are the new housemates of Big Brother Season 18 ‘rats’?
Obviously, there will be no rats this season but the new promotional material from CBS gives us a unique glimpse on what’s to come:
“Get ready people, Big Brother is back. You know that show, a bunch of strangers move into a big house, cut off from the outside world – kind of like living in the South Pole. Cameras and microphones record their every move, they’re basically rats in a cage for your viewing pleasure. So, don’t be afraid to tap on the glass. In the beginning it’s all kittens and rainbows, but after the first champagne toast, the claws come out,” said the voiceover from the promotional video.
Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without Julie Chen and she is also mentioned in the video.
It doesn’t end there as Big Brother Season 18 gets a new logo and a whole new feel.
It seems as if George Orwell’s 1984 got a facelift from the material we’re seeing, and with less than a month to go, we can’t wait for the reality series to start again. Season 16 was predictable and season 17 had a cast that was indeed annoying to some (most) of us. Will season 18 bring something new?
Stay tuned on Wednesday, June 22 at 8 pm ET/PT for the premiere on CBS – that’s two hours long, but expect regular episodes on Thursdays and Sundays as well.
