In downtown Seattle today, I witnessed a line around one full city block, hundreds and hundreds of seemingly normal human beings waiting to be let in somewhere. I had no idea what they were in line for – I assumed someone important was speaking somewhere (Sarah Palin? Flavor Flav?). Only later did I discover that there was no celebrity, no important speaker – these people were waiting in line for the opening of a brand new clothing store. Some Sweden-born establishment that apparently sells reasonably affordable apparel; I presume it’s basically an Ikea for clothes. Point being – I will never understand people. The behavior of usually normal men and women never ceases to baffle and amaze. Why would a person wait in line for hours to enter a new clothing store? Why would a reality TV show contestant go ballistic over what they know is a game?
Big Brother 10 had its fair share of insane moments. The behavior of Big Brother houseguests is always a curiosity, simply because to want to appear on Big Brother you have to be wired in a very specific way. Again – it is a type of person I will never begin to understand. I’ve written about it before, but I still can’t get over how mad people get over what is essentially a very silly game. It’s a game, and people are trying to win – why even bother to make it personal?
In concocting the Top 5 Worst Moments of Big Brother 10, I had a lot of material to choose from. Clearly, my list is probably going to be vastly different from yours. Please, feel free to add your two cents in the comments section below. I decided to define “worst” as “the worst examples of human behavior over the course of the Big Brother season.” I’ve embedded videos when available. Get started below.
