With only hours until the premiere this BBCanada fan is too excited for words. The Feed page at www.bigbrothercanada.slice.ca is up and looking great, and will be LIVE after the episode ends BBC time. ::crosses fingers::
I may also be still Misted from my conversation yesterday with the one and only Dan Gheesling (One of the Greatest-Freaking-Moments-of-My-Life) in Toronto at the SLOP TRUCK! Yes, an actual food truck serving authentic Big Brother Canada Slop. It’s not the exact same as the BBUS series, but I’ve been assured that the taste is dead on. There’s an App for that – or a really expensive food taster who recreated it especially for us.
The slop was available with three different toppings, of which I tried two. Saying no to hot sauce, I opted for the classic maple syrup and one with chocolate chips. Feeling brave, I avoided the chocolate chips in favor of a spoonful of plain slop. Really shouldn’t have done that. The moment I put the cold gelatinous glop in my mouth – ::shudders:: I don’t want to think about it. It wasn’t good.
The maple syrup saved my life (stomach, actually) since it was in a puddle on the top of the other Cup-O’-Slop, I quickly scooped it up (along with more slop granules I would later find in my teeth) to wash the heavy mineral/oat/gritty/chalky-ness out of my mouth. It went down and stayed, thank goodness. Then I made my cameraman (BB Loving Father) try it, too. After a truly beautiful look of disgust (that only a daughter can truly enjoy) he choked out “It didn’t taste like chicken.”
There’s a lot more to come today, and in the next 10 weeks, so keep an eye out for coverage here. From my interview with Dan yesterday, to feed updates, personal opinion blogs (you want to write one, send a sample to me), Pictures, Video & More.
