Evil Dick and Janelle to return to 'Big Brother 11'

"Big Brother 11" just got a little more annoying this summer. Dick and Janelle are back to do a weekly podcast and he said/she said weekly blog post.

I hate "Evil" Dick. I don't think he's a funny persona, I think he is an enormous jerk with anger issues who likes to throw adolescent tantrums and can't deal with the fact that he's not 25 years old anymore. On his season of "Big Brother," he kept up the persona most of the time, but every once in awhile the mask would slip and we'd see just how disturbed he really was.

As for Janelle... I want to throttle her with her "Baby make it nice" t-shirt.

Anyway, the two have teamed up for coverage of the show this summer. Dick told BBDish:

I will be doing my weekly webcast for Real Player again this year. RealPlayer Superpass has given me my own tab in their browser, which will closely link my website and my myspace, etc... They have been great to work with, and our relationship is solid.

I have some fun guests lined up, and we will be out on locations more this season. We will also have more past houseguests ... The viewers were out in huge numbers for the show last year, and I don't see any reason why that would change.

I will also be doing a weekly webcast with Janelle to fill the void left by the Cancellation of Housecalls. It will be a call in show that will talk about the feeds and anything and everything else going on in the house and being talked about on the internet. I will be in studio while Janelle will be in NYC, but will be as good as sitting next to me co-hosting the show (well, as good as for you people, but I am getting jipped [sic].) We will also be doing a "He said, She said" type blog or column.

Major Improvements to the Big Brother 11 Live Feeds

Good Evening Big Brother Lovers! Happy Tuesday & Happy 30 days til the Premiere of Big Brother 11. Can you stand it?!

30 days from now, we'll all be here getting to know all the new BB11 Houseguests on the Premiere Show. Then, a little while after that, the live feeds'll spark up, and we'll start to learn who they really are... or, who they are under incredible pressure, claustrophobia and paranoia, anyhow. wink.gif

Of course, while the premiere is on, many of you will already have staked out your spots in your favorite live feed chat rooms, waiting for that magic moment when after sooo many months, the live feeds come back on, and in an instant, we're miles ahead of the tv only audience, and we learn who's up on the block, and maybe even who won the 1st PoV! And we'll be here with you, watching every juicy moment!

Speaking of juicy, I made a promise a couple days ago about some new info, and I just got the go ahead to reveal some of it. wink.gif

First up, yes! We we will have the early bird deal available for you again, right here on BBDish. Pretty soon, actually. OK.. now on the the big stuff...

Feeders!! Hold on to your hats. The fine folks at real have made some really cool improvements to the live feeds interface. You're gonna love it! I already do.

Don't even think about copying and pasting this elsewhere. One or two lines and a link, that's all we ask.

OK, Here's what I know so far... My favorite improvement is gonna be called either the Calendar or the Flashback or the Time Machine, and while you may already be getting the gist of it just from the name, allow me to explain how it's gonna work.

Let's say some HG's head explodes while you're at work, you'll be able to plug in the time it happened, and go back to view it. Let's say the HoH reveal is taking too long, and you've just got to go to sleep. No problem. Just plug in the time you want, or the time your ever loving dishchicks have told you to look for, and poof, there you are.

Let's say you're reading the overnight report, and while we've posted screencaps of HGx and HGy getting busy or getting caught coming out of the shower or having a big fight, pics just aren't enough for you. You want to see how it all happened! Now you can, right there within the Big Brother Interface on Superpass. If you're reading this anywhere but http://bbdish.blogspot.com, it's been plagiarized & stolen. Come to the source!

Here's the mock up of what it's going to look like:



So, per the instructions, you pick a month and day, select an hour to view, select a camera and click submit. Easy, peasy, done!

Pretty cool, right?! 3 cheers for whatever they're gonna call this feature. I think they're leaning toward Flashback, but I dig the Time Machine.

My immediate questions are these:
1. Once I've chosen an hour to view, can I then fast forward it to get to the part I want?
2. Can I pause and rewind within this feature?
3. Will every moment of every day and every feed be available from start to finish, or is there a time limit of 1 month for archiving?

Actually, my 3rd question has already been answered. Not only will every moment of BB11 be available, every moment of Big Brother 10 will be too!

Extremely cool!

Anyhow, moving right along, the presentation of the rooms has also been upgraded. No longer will you have to go to quad to see what's going on everywhere, or flip from feed to feed. Check this out!



Instead of it saying 1, 2, 3, 4, Quad, there are actual pictures of each feed, all in a row, so you can tell who is where and where you want to be! Sweeeeeet!!

I've been advised that the small feeds will be security camera-esque in presentation quality, but.. who cares? They'll get us where we need to be without flip flopping around!

As you can see, the Quad Cam is still available as an option too!



In the pic above, take notice that along the bottom are a line up of videos. To my understanding, this is where key moments of the season will go, accessible all the time and changing frequently. Big Fights, Funny Escapades, Burlesque Shows??

Who knows what this season will bring?! The sure thing is this: BB11's gonna rock, and Real just made it even better.

Big Brother 11 Will NOT be in HD

Big Brother 11 and the 24/7 live feeds will NOT be broadcast in high-definition. Several Big Brother websites are reporting that BB11 and the live feeds will be broadcast in HD. After speaking with Real Networks and a Showtime representative, it became clear that there was some confusion circulating regarding a previous message from Real Networks.

Real Networks plans on testing its Helix streaming technology for Big Brother. This platform can support HD streaming. However, the cameras in the Big Brother house have not been upgraded or replaced for HD viewing.

Showtime did say that they might upconvert, or stretch, the standard-definition signal coming from the house to fill the HD screen for Showtime

CBS Big Brother 11, Reportedly Doing A Media Day on June 19

According to a radio show that tvgrapevine.com found and put up on their site, there is going to be what is called a CBS "Big Brother"
media day on June 19,2009. It's an event put together by the producers of the show to do a test run of the "Big Brother" house.
Now, this radio host said that his sister runs the whole thing and she told him that the "Big Brother" media day is going to consist of a
couple of celebrities which includes,and I quote : himself, Perez Hilton,somebody from "Extra",and Access Hollywood.
They are supposed to live in the house for like 15 hours,and it's supposed to be a condensed version of the whole game. He read off what is supposed to happen when they arrive on the CBS lot for "Big Brother" media day.

He said when they arrive there, they will be locked in for 15 hours, with no contact to the outside world. And that they will be doing all
the challenges that the Big Brother game has. You die hard "Big Brother " fans should all know what they are. They're going to be checking for camera angles,sound,staging,etc. And they'll be using the chosen celebrities to do so. He said CBS will shoot a highlight reel of it. And every celeb contestant who participates will get to take home a copy of it.

He also said they're going to eat slop, have an eviction ceremony, a mini wrap party,etc. All of this would happen in just 15 hours ! I
repeat they're going to run a whole Big Brother season in 15 hours for this Media Day. They'll be voting people off, doing head of
household,everything. That's insane ! Apparently this Media Day took place last year and there were some brutal fights that took place. They also said this 15 hour test drive is more fun than the actual show because heck, it's just 15 hours,and not the full 90 day grind that the regular contestants will have to endure.

'Big Brother' Media Day Today

A test run of how the 11th season of the CBS reality show Big Brother is set to be launched today, in an effort to attract attention and show off a condensed version of how Big Brother, in a nutshell, works.

The CBS Big Brother media day, put up by the show's producers, will reportedly include the likes of celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, in addition to someone from Extra and Access Hollywood. They will reportedly live in the house for 15 hours and throughout that amount of time will have to undergo nearly all the ceremonies and challenges that normal house guests endure, except obviously living in a house with total strangers for 90 days.

With no contact to the outside world, the media people will be doing what Big Brother orders them, while the producers check for camera angles, sound, staging, and the rest. CBS will also release a highlight reel of the whole experience, with each celebrity contestant getting a copy to take home.

".. They're going to eat slop, have an eviction ceremony, a mini wrap party, etc. All of this would happen in just 15 hours!" confirms a source as quoted by On the Fix. "They're going to run a whole Big Brother season in 15 hours for this Media Day. They'll be voting people off, doing head of household, everything."

Media day also took place last year and despite the limited time - 15 hours - "brutal fights" still erupted in true Big Brother fashion.

In other developments, the official Big Brother 11 website was recently launched, with the usual Interact, Photos, Recaps, and House Guests sections, plus the Fantasy section for the game that was created for this season.

Big Brother 11 will kick off July 9 on CBS.

'Big Brother' 11 House Rumored to Go Green?

While there's always a surprising twist every season Big Brother airs, this year it's a bit more expected than usual. According to the website Online Big Brother, the notorious house will be heading for a new direction. The eleventh installment of the hit show will reportedly go green.

Over the weekend, the media was allowed to visit the set of the CBS series and check out what a typical day was like in the house. Unfortunately for them (and for the fans), the Media Blackout is in effect until June 29. Even so, it's always fun to check out what rumors are plaguing Big Brother.

Though the environment-friendly theme of this season remains to be mere speculation, there's still some truth behind it. A recent interview with Big Brother's executive producer Allison Grodner revealed what to expect come July.

"The house is gorgeous. It's a modern house this season, and we're going green. Eco-friendly," she said on the John Jay & Rich Show. She's also confirmed that it's been finalized, along with the members of the cast.

There has also been a number of Big Brother 11 buzz released about the details of the house, and with Grodner's statement they seem highly believable. The site reported that going along with the theme is everything else.

It's been said that the pillows will be made of hemp, the kitchen area looks like a forest and the colorful walls will be fiber-optic textured. There will also be a huge tank filled with fish in one corner of the house and an eco-fountain in the backyard. There'll be motion-censored showers and sinks, but there won't be a washer for the clothes. Could it be that they're giving the houseguests recyclable fashion?

Despite all these tales, we'll only get to see what's really going on in the house when Big Brother airs its eleventh season on July 9, 8pm on CBS.
