Julie Chen BB11 House Tour/CBS Press Release About The Season!!!

Okay all you Yakksters, get ready! The Big Brother 11 Season is upon us and once again we have a tour of the Big Brother 11 House by none other than Julie Chen! (Sporting a trendy top that adorably masks and yet enhances her “bump”)……come on in to our forums to discuss!

You can see the tour here but one thing we need to point out is that while we previously reported a rumor that was going around on the internet about a mystery 3rd bedroom with a jungle theme………..the jungle theme rumor was wrong, however there is a mystery, locked 3rd bedroom that Julie says the houseguests definitely WILL NOT enjoy. We’ll get to see this mystery room on premiere night!

Plus, CBS has issued an official press release regarding the season and it’s a great read!

CBS press release:

THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD,” A NEW REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES, PREMIERES SUNDAY, AUG. 9 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
In the Ultimate Social and Family Bonding Experiment, Eight Families in a Suburban Neighborhood Are Enclosed by a Massive 20-Foot Wall To Compete

for the Grand Prize of $250,000

Matt Rogers (“American Idol,” “Really Big Things”) Hosts

THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a new seven episode reality-competition series, premieres Sunday, Aug. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series features eight families in a suburban neighborhood who are enclosed by a massive 20-foot wall as they compete in family-friendly games for the grand prize of $250,000.

In what promises to be the ultimate social and family bonding experiment, this neighborhood will be cut off from the outside world as it becomes family vs. family in a competition to win upgrades for their lives and their homes. With virtually no electricity and no ability to text-message, watch television or surf the Internet, these families will be forced to reconnect and work together as a team. For the duration of the competition, the eight homes will be surrounded by the daunting wall with no way in or out. Each week, another family will be voted out of the game until one victorious group remains to claim the $250,000 grand prize.

Tammy/Victor win The Amazing Race 14!!! A Retrospective On The Season.

Well folks, it’s over. Another season of The Amazing Race has come and gone and with it, we have winners! Tammy and Victor Jih, siblings from San Francisco and Los Angeles, California were declared the winners of The Amazing Race 14 after crossing the finish line first, naturally. All three of the final three teams had been bunched up at the final roadblock, the surfboard fence, where each person had to remember events from each leg, find a surfboard with the correct symbols and put them in the right order. Luke and Margie, mother and son, had been ahead at this challenge, arriving first and Luke having correctly placed the first 9 of 11 boards, but became caught on the last two. Cheerleaders and friends, Jaime and Cara caught up with the other two teams, and in the end their team and Luke and Margie helped each other to finish but ultimately Tammy and Victor finished first, got a lucky cab and claimed the one million dollars.

In my opinion this has been one of the better seasons of the reality season, in the fact that I didn’t dislike any of the last three teams and was happy with whoever won. My personal preference as a sentimental favorite was Margie and Luke, but I liked all three. But let’s take a look back at all the teams and some thoughts from our forum members on the season as a whole.

Not that they’re likely to happen BUT as die hard fans/live feed updaters/ Big Brother net nerds, we are truly devoted viewers who have seen what we thought worked and definitely didn’t work.
