I know that not many of you will care, but last night my summer obsession Big Brother ended in the most perfect way with mastermind Derrick taking home the title of Big Brother champ, $575 grand, and the distinction of being one of the show’s greatest players ever. His game was the perfect blend of calculated, underhanded, subdued, and genius. It may not have always made for the exciting TV but it made for some pretty dang fascinating TV. It is gameplay like Derrick’s that gave me no choice but to respect the heck out Big Brother. Yes. I just said that. It’s just so good, you guys.
In other news that brought me irrevocable joy: Frankie Grande did not win the title of America’s Favorite Player, a title which he instructed his sister, Ariana Grande, to tweet about to her fans and have vote for him. Frankie’s self-aggrandizement and utter disingenuous nature throughout the season drove me crackers, so this face right here when they announced that he was not even in the top three made it all worth it.
I really could go on and on about my love for this show and Derrick’s game, but I have already talked the ear off all my friends who like the show.
Big Brother, I hate to see you leave, but I love to watch you go. As long as you go with a finale like that.
And Cody, I will miss looking at Cody.
