Hello everybody, the wait is FINALLY over! Tonight, at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central time, CBS airs the premiere episode of Big Brother 11, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT! And anyone who’s anyone within the Big Brother internet circuit knows what better way to watch then to watch AND discuss with your fellow Big Brother fans online!
My name is Ahrean, and I’ve been doing show recap threads since the middle of Big Brother 6. And I can confidently say you’ll find NOONE better at it than I am. That’s not ego speaking either, it’s just something I took to doing and kept on doing by popular demand. Basically, I felt bad for those not in the Eastern/Central time zone having to wait around to watch what everyone else did without having the full scoop on what really happened. Plus, I knew what a PITA it was to be pre-empted and have to scramble for a live stream, maybe not finding one and then being in the cold. So I sat down one night in front of both the computer and my TV and started typing what happened, as it happened, on the show.
Typos? Sure. Not verbatim? Sure. But those there REALLY got a feel for what was happening and I’ve received nothing but compliments on doing it for everyone else. It’s hard, you have to be able to type fast (which I do) in order to catch it all, but it’s SO much fun because you have people there reading and watching along with you and you could read what they thought too.
And so, as I prepare to in just over 48 hours, start my sixth season doing it, I would like to invite you to Yakkity Yaks inaugural season of Big Brother with my exclusive recap thread. And you don’t even have to just sit there because I put my posts in bold, ask everyone else to type as normal and boom, it’s a party! You can find my threads here, ALL are welcome!
We here at Yakkity Yaks come from all walks of life, in all areas in and outside the United States, and we come together with many things in common, but one thing we’re PASSIONATE about is Big Brother! Here’s some testimonials from our members about our site and about my show threads:
Site member KaraokeDiva says, “I will always follow Ahrean to any forum she posts on. Nobody! Absolutely NOBODY can recap a show like she can.”
Site member kmteach says, “I have been coming to the Yak since the site was first started!! Prior to that, I was a member on two other sites that were related to BB. I cannot recall how I found the first site, but what I do remember is how much of a BB fan I was but none of my friends or family were so I didn’t have anyone to talk about the show with. What I didn’t know was that there was a whole new family waiting for me on the internet!! I may not ever have met any of these people in real life, but it makes no difference, they know who I am and I know who they are. We all discuss BB and respect each other’s thoughts and opinions.
I have been reading and commenting in Ahrean’s show recap threads for several years now. She does a tremendous job, and I know how hard it is because I tried to do it for her once when the show was delayed in her area and I just couldn’t pick up on everything that was going on as well as she does.
If you have never belonged to a site like this, it is definitely worth checking out. Not only do you get to read the show recap threads, but you also get the live feed updates to know what is going on in the house 24/7… not simply the show that is edited to show what the producers want to be seen. We know what is really going on behind the show, so to speak. And to top it all off, you will meet some wonderful people!! I recently had computer problems and one of the co-owners of this site helped me diagnose and fix a problem that was threatening to shut me down completely!! I live on the East coast, she lives on the West coast… but it didn’t make a difference.”
And I know personally that our West Coast and out of the country members I’ve become friends with in various places have said it’s great to be in the know, before the show!
So come on over tonight and check it out! And if you want to join in, all you have to do is register……….for free! And while here, check out all the other things we have to offer, Big Brother and otherwise. For all your online entertainment needs, visit Yakkity Yaks!
