I am obsessed with this show.
My aunt and cousin got me fixed on it at the beach last year when pretty much every waking moment was spent on our laptops watching the live feeds. Seriously, watch one episode and you're addicted! Well this year when I was in Mexico, I got a facebook message from my cousin Tiffany saying Call me-URGENT. Don't worry, her life wasn't in danger or anything, she just got tickets to the Big Brother live show in LA the next day! This is pretty much like hitting the jackpot. Very few people actually get to go to the studio and witness a live eviction. Needless to say, I HAD to be there. It wasn't even a choice. Long story short, we jumped through many hoops to get me from Mexico to LA the next day, which included a very long border crossing and a personal driver who also worked parties at the Playboy Mansion. I can totally get us in, by the way.
I met Tiff, Janae, and Tiff's mom at CBS Studios in Studio City. We were practically first in line, it was fantastic. After a little bit of waiting they walked us all over to the actual studio where the show is filmed. If you don't know about BB, it's basically 13 people live in a house filled with cameras. They don't have tv, music, books, anything. It gets real dramatic when you have nothing to do but be surrounded by weird people, and they are the only people they see all summer. No one comes in, and one person leaves each week. The coolest part about going to the live show was that the "house" they live is inside the studio we were at! The front door was literally right behind us. So weird.
Anyways, the most wonderful and ego-boosting part about this whole experience was that when you walk into the studio, an audience coordinator seats people where she thinks they should go... aka, if you are attractive, you go in the front. We thought really highly of ourselves when we were placed in the front row, right behind where Julie Chen stands. Pretty much the best seats in the house with a lot of camera time. We rock. We got to see the most hates houseguest Rachel get evicted. Fun Facts: She has the worlds worst hair extensions, the most annoying laugh, and we hate her because she makes Vegas girls look like skanks. We were happy to see her go!
Here's some screenshots of us on the show.
And if you look close, you can see my little head right behind Rachel when she was getting interviewed.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU TIFF for sharing this experience with me!! I had such a good time!!
