Well again Big Brother US disappoints fans after Executive Producer Alison Grodner claimed the house will be completely revamped and is all new. Which is actually BBUSA-code for we did nothing but redecorate the 4 walls in each room and didn't alter much. Again they continue to use the same interior designer team with churns out the same California Mid Century Modern style in muted orange and green tones. This years theme is a lame attempt at...wait for it....interactive/tech/video games. it fails miserably and devolves into a 1980's Atari-esque with lame emoji pillows and hashtag knick-knacks in the bathroom.
So apparently this year "tech twist":
View from the main doors into the house
Here is the living room, featuring the sofa on a turnable and a climbing wall
Here is the kitchen and dining area. Not sure how a large gummi bear and a neon donut translates to tech/games/fun..but there we are.
Dining table. Same main doors. Believe the orange "beams" were used for the last season, I think they were painted grey or dark blue. Nomination screens still in place, same graphics.
Mezzanine above the main doors, 1980s suburban basement den feel.
View down from the mezzanine into the living room.
Hallway from Kitchen/Backdoor to the Den and then Bathroom at the end. Again complelely open to the kitchen.
This is the den in with some claustrophobic wall paper.
These are the 2 main bedrooms. Pink and blue. The only alteration to the house was that that wall is moveable. and the rooms are basically still open to the livingroom as your can see over to the left.
This is the 3rd bedroom. This is likely the room that will get converter to the Have Not room. Eventually. The wall is covered in Fidgit spinners. Okaay.
This the HOH bedroom. Again very dark this year. The coloured bits change colour. Think back to the BBCAN 5 and the entire living room wall this used this.
This is the main bathroom, This year the big innovation is 4 sinks. Whoooo. More emoji pillow and the "filter screens" that will not get used after day 1.
Same backyard. Yellow awning. They painted strips and added red fake flowers. Likely the flowers they used from the tiny backgarden of the CBBUSA house.
There are some nice elements, but as usual this house was designed by a person in their 60s or older and has no idea what tech or games or anything in the year 2018 means. Also the fact this is 20th Season and the big build up from the Exec Producer, its a huge disappointment. It seems like they get fixated on one thing and have no idea how to carry it out completely. Hence a wall covered in fidget spinners. Who uses those anymore. This twists and the cast I hope make up for Big Brother's lack of imagination.
Presenter Julie Chen's house tour.
One of few cool elements is the eye logo made of exclamation points on the interactive screens that are dotted around the house. Missed opportunity?
LOL - BBUK did it better. Geez
