Any Idea Why ‘Big Brother’ Show Is So Popular?

Finnish Big Brother tv series has recently begun, and it has come to my attention that we actually have a possibility to watch the ‘show’ for 24/7 (if you order a channel package).

Seriously.

Who the heck are making actually paying for the chance to watch every minute of what some people do in a house?

  1. It’s probably because they can identify with those people inside the container.
    In my opinion, there are lots of unintelligent people, and most TV is also for unintelligent people, and in Big Brother, there are also only unintelligent people, so it’s perfect for them to sympathize.

    It’s the same with talkshows. If you’re intelligent, you watch them occasionally to have a good laugh. If you’re unintelligent, you watch them daily and think it helps with your life because your life is similar to those strange individuals (hehe, wrong word actually) inside the TV.

  2. There’s usually an active chat community while watching. It’s not so much the viewing of them sitting and doing nothing all day as it is coming back each season and finding some old friends in the chat rooms.

    However, if you are referring to a premium cable channel where this is not an option. No. I don’t get it either.

  3. I heard there were tits.

  4. I watched it for about 30 seconds. Maybe 40.

    That was more than enough.

  5. I’ll never watch it. What a waste of time.

  6. They should just combine big brother and survivor and make “big survivor” with the contestants being the 80′s band, survivor.

  7. Voyeurism is a fairly basic attraction. Take Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” in 1954 (or it’s retarded cousin, Disturbia). People like to watch people. But 24/7 is a bit over the top, yeah.

  8. i think people wanna know special lifes of people
    i know a guy from turkey try to make game about this show with ags
    actually it is good idea make a game about big brother ?
