Big Brother 7 Live Feeds Not So Revealing

We're not ashamed to admit that we love reality tv.

At the top of our favorites is Big Brother, the show that puts about a dozen people in a "house" and makes them live together for three months while evicting "house guests" along the way.

This was the show where one house guest took the toothbrush of the other house guest and cleaned the toilet with it and then put the toothbrush back into the holder.

For years CBS has had a multi-camera live feed available online for an additional fee. For years we have been curious as to what goes on in the house when the editors are cutting the tape. So when CBS announced a 72-hour free preview of the "live feeds" we decided it was finally in our budget.

Let's just say that the feeds have shown us how heavy-handed the Big Brother producers are, telling people when to go to bed, telling people to get off tables, and cutting the feeds constantly and replacing them with the canned theme song and trivia questions.

Just this afternoon, for example, Mike "Boogie" was talking about simultaneously ejaculating and defecating and all four feeds were all cut, including one of Janelle in a bathroom on the other side of the house.
