Big Brother 2023
Anything goes, including naps!
A lifetime or two ago, I used to love me some reality TV. Some of my favorites were Average Joe, a few seasons of The Real World, and of course the first season (maybe two?) of Jersey Shore. I’ve never really gotten into non-US reality TV, though I do enjoy watching the occasional Hollywood Handshake on The Great British Bake-off.
With that, I’m aware of the show Big Brother, a global reality TV show more popular overseas than in the US, but don’t have much of a frame of reference for it. I gather that it went off the air in 2018 or so but has since been revived/rebooted, with the most recent season beginning a week or so — and this season has a new twist.
It’s the kind of twist that most people probably wouldn’t notice or care about, but most people don’t start a 6x/week napping Substack — and also, this means it’s perfect to share on Bundy Sunday Funday.
Anywho, while contestants used to be barred from sleeping during the day (presumptive thought process: nothing interesting to film if you’re napping), apparently they’re now allowed to nap. Will be super interested to hear what r/BigBrother has to say about it!
