Magic Missed – Avoiding ‘Real Live’

Well it was certainly an eventful night in the BBC House, starting with the ‘Live’ Eviction show where Kat was voted off.

 

Of course, by the time we were watching that, the free feeds had already spilled the beans on the liveness of the leaked the already in progress HOH Endurance Lumber Jack & Jill -eventually won by Jillian.
Now let me explain to everybody not quite in the know  about some of the magic of Big Brother – perhaps Slice & Insight, though they’re really doing a good job overall.
When a Live Eviction goes down, the magic of BB is the fact that as soon as the show ends on TV, the feeds come back with the immediate aftermath. People wandering the house in shock of a twist/surprise vote/new HOH… Or in the best feeds…… Endurance  Competitions.
It’s no secret the most looked forward to feeds of the Big Brother  season are the endurance competitions – seeing some house guests  drop like flies and witness the steely determination of others. Not to mention the jokes, ribbing, deal making and being able to witness the relationships of the people clearly shift as a winner gets closer.
What happened last night was a missed opportunity not only for the fans who have been looking forward to this for years, but for Slice & Insight as well. They could have (with some scheduling changes & not avoiding ‘Real Live’) made us Canadians proud to watch our houseguests, who we live vicariously through during the seasons, play the game.
Instead, it was a misstep on the part of “Production” & a disappointment to fans across the world who didn’t get to enjoy Big Brother Canada at its fullest.
I, for one, know that better can be done by us, and I am sure that after a few bumps in the road for all of us, Big Brother Canada will succeed in being one hell of an epic ride.
