An awful lot of reality TV follows a certain pattern- break the contestants up into different groups and have them compete at various challenges. Make sure to get the hottest contestants wearing the least amount of clothing and give them the most amount of face time. Find controversy and milk it. Find rivalries and encourage them. Try to see who might hook up with who. and of course, revel in backstabbing, lying and cheating among the contestants. Big Brother is no different.
In fact, Big Brother is like Survivor’s (the Grandaddy of reality TV) indoor cousin. While in Survivor contestants battle the elements with a bunch of people they don’t know completely cut off from the world, on Big Brother they are stuck in a house with a bunch of people they don’t know completely cut off from the outside world. The only good thing about this if you are a guy is that most of the women on the show are ridiculously hot. The whole point of the show, of course, is to continue to vote out contestants until only one remains, which makes for a lot of lying, manipulation, rivalries, and darn good television.
But like any reality show on television, a lot goes on behind the scenes that you don’t know anything about. Reality TV is always a mix of what is real and what the producers of the show want you to see, and Big Brother is no exception. What kind of secrets are behind the Big Brother curtain? You’ll have to read on to find out. Here is TheRichest’s list of 15 secrets you didn’t know about Big Brother.
15. Contestant Receive Suspicious Letter Before Arriving
If there is one thing that Big Brother is known for – it is fighting. Sometimes it seems like people’s entire strategy while they are on the show is to do nothing but fight. So all of those fights you see every year, how do they happen? Are the people that the producers pick to be on the show really that unstable? Well, the answer to that is yes and also no. The fights are pretty much planned and happen on purpose. First of all, contestants on the basis of if they are likely to fight, or at least they hope they will; they don’t want a boring show. But it goes deeper than that. Before the contestants arrive they get a letter that reads “Think about the types of people that fire you up, make you mad, bother you, etc.” The letter tells them not to get along with everyone. That would be bad TV.
