Rank #1: Big Brothers: BB20 Episode 1

Podcast cover
Read more

The Big Brothers, “Power of” Vito Calise and Chris Stanley are back for season 20 and they’ve added a new sibling, Adam Poch (Big Brother 11). Adam was on his way to Disney World so could only do a quick phone call (that Chris Stanley didn’t seem too happy about) but Adam will be more involved in episodes to come.

Season 20 is looking great to start. There are NO returning Houseguests, which is a positive after 2 seasons of returnees and the disaster that was the Paul run house of season 19. These Houseguests want to win the game, there doesn’t seem to be anyone right now who is just hoping to “make jury”.

This episode of the show is more of a preview for the season. The feeds just started the night before but the boys wanted to get you an episode ASAP. Once the season gets more underway Big Brothers will be the best place for you to go and see what’s happening on the live feeds and what everyone on the internet is saying.

Vito’s pick for the BB20 winner is Tyler, Adam’s is Winston and Chris chose JC. Only one of them can be right, and sorry JC, but history proves that’s not usually Chris Stanley. Towards the end of the episode Vito and Chris give some quick rundowns of every Houseguest with the general consensus being this is a great cast, so kudos to you Robyn Kass!

For once Vito and Chris agree on something, and that is how stupid this year’s “technology” theme comes off. Vito is basically a child who said he is entertained by robot Sam, but for the most part both Big Brothers think we would be better off just having a “Big Brother 2 – 11” themed season, real gameplay, more grounded competitions and less focused on Showmances.

Rank #2: Big Brothers Episode 12: JC The Comp Beast / Phone Call with Haleigh’s Friend Bethany

Podcast cover
Read more

The Big Brothers are here to guide you through season 20 and here we are all the way out Final 3! Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) couldn’t be in studio today but called in to give predictions on what Final 2 will be and how this game will end.

The guest for today isn’t a former houseguest or affiliate of the show, it is actually a friend of Haleigh’s from back home named Bethany. Bethany was glad to call in and give her take on the game watching her friend compete and what shocked her the most about seeing her friend on TV. She also gives some insight on Haleigh’s past relationships and if Fessy was a surprise choice for Haleigh in this game.

Other Topics on Today’s Big Brothers

  • Can JC Win this game?

  • Does everyone deserve a spot at Final 3 right now and does everyone have their own case to win the game?

  • Is the Jury too bitter or is what we saw a good indicator that we may get a really fair vote?

  • If Tyler were to win the final HoH is there any way he can screw over Kaycee and take JC which would be the smarter game move.

  • Even though they seemed to have dropped the ball in their most important HoH yet, is L6 (or L3 at this point) still one of the greatest alliances in Big Brother history or does this really put a dent in their resume?

  • What is everyone’s argument to why they deserve to win? Can you still win this game being a cut throat player or do you have to be nice?

  • The evolution of the game style of Big Brother

  • Kaycee vs Janelle: Best Female Houseguest

  • Big Brother 21 Casting Promo … Big Brother will return! (It seems)

  • Tyler being Adam’s Tofurkey of the Week

  • Does Adam see Kaycee being a bitter jury member like he was at the time if she gets sent home by Tyler in a cut throat move?  

  • Kaycee’s Jokers ranking

Rank #3: Big Brothers S2 Episode 9: Adam Poch from BB13 in Studio!

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s time for another episode as Big Brothers, the season is winding down and we will have our newest Big Brother winner in less than 20 days. “Power of” Vito was without his trusted co-host Chris Stanley this week but couldn’t go a week without talking Big Brother, so your special co-host for this episode of Big Brothers is … ADAM POCH, from season 13! Adam came in third place in his season and was a real pleasure to talk to.

“Power of” Vito and Adam got along right off the bat both being huge fans in this XL episode of Big Brothers. The two could not stop talking about the game and had a lot to say about the demise of Maven, the rise of Paul and how TMZ is just coming after Big Brother this season. Adam was not hesitant to talk about his experience on the show as well.

Fun fact: Adam said off-air (don’t worry, said this was fine to say) that when it comes to Jury, the houseguests get that DVD, do their filmed segment and then are not allowed to talk game in between! That didn’t even come up because there is so much to cover this year. As boring and predictable some weeks have been we have still seen some of the most fights in any season with some pretty interesting gameplay from some Houseguests.

Every week Adam Poch writes a blog/player ranking on Big Brother Network. He ranks the players based on Bacon (if they’re good) and Tofu (if they’re bad). He also gives ToFurkey of the week to who he feels was the weeks biggest loser. It’s a great way to stay updated with who is doing what in the house if you cannot be on those feeds 24/7/

Rank #4: Big Brothers Episode 9: The Resurrection of the Virgin King / Johnny Tremmel Calls In

Podcast cover
Read more

No Chris on this weeks Big Brothers, Power of Vito and Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) had some intense conversations on the following subjects, listen to the episode to get these answers and more:

Was it dumb for Angela to put up Fessy and Hay? Would it have been better for her to put up Sam or JC since they aren’t in a position to help them stay safe while Fessy and Hay have been very loyal to their side?

Did Fessy effectively get into JCs Head by saying he’s next on the chopping block and was it a plan or just some dumb Fessy luck

While Tyler’s biggest downfall be everyone talking in jury about their F2 with him? Is he really in the best spot in the house or does Brett have a leg up on him since he’s pretty much-going unnoticed by anyone and not thought to be in any sort of alliance.

How do we feel about pipe bomb eviction pleas? Fessy had one on his way out, is he just bitter and ruining people’s game as his game is over?

Seeing an entire alliance compete against each other

Kaitlyn’s effect on the game, how her one decision has changed the entire outcome of the game thus far.

Our issues with how the Battleback was handled. There’s a pretty obvious way they could have handled it and given us an amazing moment.

A recap of the endurance HoH competition that went down late night on the feeds. Why it was one of the best we’ve seen in a long time and how although Hayleigh didn’t win, she put up an amazing fight with the odds stacked against her. 

Adam’s former houseguest perspective on

· Why doesn’t anyone hang out in the living room?

· When did players start looking to the camera after lying to people’s face?

· Reddit/Twitter have been begging for the HoH eviction night interview to return. Adam answers a theory people have on Rachel Reilly being the reason those don’t happen anymore.

We also thought it was the perfect time to bring back Johnny Tremmel for a phone call since he cast Hayleigh on the show and let him defend her and give his perspective on how she did in the game vs some other people he’s cast on the show.

Rank #5: Big Brothers S2 Episode 10: Josh, The Hero We Need Right Now

Podcast cover
Read more

Well folks, Chris Stanley is back from his Parisian vacation and that means the band is back together with Power of “Vito” and Chris Stanley giving you the inside scoop to the Big Brother house. Another double eviction has come and the guys are excited as ever for it.

Moment of the week though, well for “Power of” Vito it was Josh and Christmas’ argument where she wanted to make sure Josh was aware she wasn’t just another “club whore”. Does anyone else think Christmas is giving Josh way too much credit to even think he would access to “club whores”?

With Josh seeming to be catching onto Paul’s game this week, the guys thought there was a chance the Miami sensation could take out “The Rocker” Paul (as the Big Brother voice over guy likes to call Paul). Well, he didn’t, he actually just fed into Paul’s bullshit even more and agreed to go along with some awful plan to trick everyone they were fighting which OF COURSE these idiotic houseguests just went along with.

As predictable and boring these past few weeks have been, it is great that was got to see a good old fashioned blindside like we got with Jason! The poor guy didn’t see it coming at all. He left in a hot rage, it seemed like Paul put together the perfect plan but then Josh’s goodbye message to Jason has possibly blown up everything Paul has been working on. Then all the feedsters got something they have all been waiting for, the eviction of Raven. It could have been much better since Alex had just gotten all the power in the house with HoH but instead of making a big game move while she’s on her own, she played it safe and went after Kevin and Raven.

The guys also talked to Adam Poch on the phone about his rankings for this week of Big Brother!

Rank #6: Big Brothers S2 Episode 8: The Zingbot Cometh

Podcast cover
Read more

Power of “Vito” and his co-host Chris Stanley put it perfectly when they said this was another “medicore” week in the Big Brother house. With Jess and Cody gone, Paul is going full steam ahead with his minions and it looks like there is no stopping him.

Last week “Power of” Vito did give Paul credit for playing a good game and choosing not to discredit the vet with the advantages he was given this year. This comes up on this week’s episode where the guys discuss if at this point fans should just accept the interference of production and judge players based on how they use that to their advantage. Jess was most likely given an advantage by production with her halting hex, did she use is the best way she possibly could or waste it? Tweet as @BigBrothersPod what you think.

“Power of” Vito also got into an interesting debate with Chris Stanley, the two did not see eye to eye at all. The topic was, should houseguests be made aware of the final vote counts for each eviction, or would gameplay be better because houseguests be more inclined to take bigger risks if the numbers did not come back to bit them in the ass.

The biggest even of this week in the Big Brother house? The return of Zingbot, a Big Brother tradition that houseguests and viewers look forward to. This year Zingbot came in especially mean though, called Raven ugly, called Josh fat, called Alex a whore and brought up houseguests having sex (or trying to have sex) in the house,

The guys really picked a fight with Alex and Jason and have issues with the way Alex is playing the game. “Power of” Vito and Chris Stanley both feel like she thinks she is playing a much better game than she is. The guys also go into Christmas saying she had two “major targets” on the block with Mark and Matt and they also went through a list from Entertainment Weekly ranking the all of the Big Brother winners based on a fan poll.

Rank #9: Big Brothers: BB20 Episode 3: A House Without Swag

Podcast cover
Read more

For the first time in Big Brothers history, all three of the brothers are in studio together. Remember, before Big Brother 20 had the Bros alliance, we had the Big Brothers. “Power of” Vito, Chris Stanley and Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) are here when you need them most, because the last 2 weeks have been a confusing shitshow and you’re going to need them to hold your hand through all of this.

This week was run by the frantic life coach Kaitlyn, and she made her mark on the season. Kaitlyn says her spirit guide told her what to do this week, so apparently Tyler is a part time spirit guide because he’s the one who pulled her strings this week and orchestrated the Swaggy C backdoor.

Swaggy did a great job this week and worked his ass off to stay, if the Swaggy we saw this week started off the game he probably could have went far. All of his manipulation tactics weren’t enough though and he got the boot. The brothers cover the gameplay of Swaggy and talk about his casting tape which we saw on the show last night where Swaggy said to play the exact opposite way of how he entered the house.

Another big topic on today’s show was Kaitlyn’s love triangle…square…pentagon? Well, the Big Brothers give you the live feed lowdown on what’s been going on in and outside of the house. It’s some gossip you may not want to miss out on. The main people involved are Tyler, Kaitlyn, Fessy and Kaitlyn’s boyfriend of 5 years who isn’t inside of the house. Last year Big Brothers became the Paul show, this year it’s looking like the Tyler and Kaitlyn show, but we have a lot of Big Brother left and people’s personalities are showing more and more every day.

Adam gave the scoop on his Week 2 rankings, make sure to always read those over at Big Brother Network. Adam is an avid feed watcher and gives you a legitimate ranking based on what’s really going on in the house, not just what CBS wants you to see. Follow him on Twitter @HeavyMetalTeddy,

Podcast cover

On this week’s episode of Big Brothers, Chris Stanley and Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) could not make it in to the studio but “Power of” Vito was here to wrangle them in by cell phones and get their take on the week. Here’s what the Big Brothers talk about on this weeks show:

The Tyler HoH conspiracy drama. Should he have been Disqualified? Is he Grodner/Production’s pet? Is the game being rigged in his favor? Is Brett right saying the best game move for him could be serving her to the jury house since they hate her so much? Or should he be focusing on taking her to Final 2 as an easy win? Why does Tyler want to keep Tyler so badly? Especially over Angela. We go into detail on JC’s game and how he’s doing better than we’ve given him credit for thus far.

Kaycee coming out swinging this week and proving what we talked about a few weeks ago, she had a plan to lay low and then play hard in the second half. Who else said they were going to do this? How did Sam possibly expose Kaycee’s game plan to the house?

Scottie’s speech and manic behavior with Julie. Is Scottie too bitter a jury member? Is he in the right or wrong with his anger towards Tyler? Was his speech crossing a line? Find out what was censored on the live show in this episode.

Tyler’s game right now: Should he have just been honest with Scottie and everyone else going forward? Is he throwing his game away right now by not owning up to everything and sending Jury members home angry? They keep using this “Coward” word and that’s not what he needs in a final vote

Rank #11: Big Brothers Season 21 Preview With Adam Poch and Matt Hoffman

Podcast cover
Read more

Th

e Big Brothers are back for season 21 of Big Brother! It’s been 20 years since the series first premiered on CBS and these guys are excited as ever to give you the scoop. Chris Stanley couldn’t be in for the first episode but “Power of” Vito and Adam Poch (from Big Brother 13) are here with VERY special guest, Matt Hoffman (Season 12).

The premiere is fast approaching so the Big Brothers give you their official pre season picks. This premiere episode features a look at each individual cast member so you don’t need to go watch every pre-season interview yourself. This is a first time ever for the Big Brothers podcast. And as a bonus, not only do you get winner predictions, but predictions for America’s Favorite Houseguest and “Grodner’s Pet”.  The “Grodner’s Pet” prediction is dedicated to Allison Grodner, the Big Brother show runner and it’s the guys choosing who they think will get a little help from production along the way.

Matt and Adam seem very hopeful about this year’s cast, Vito not so much. Vito thinks it is hard to follow a great season like 20 but Adam and Matt see a lot of promise and strong personalities going into the season and they’ve more than done their research. Adam also drops a little inside knowledge of two houseguests knowing another before entering the house, something that was somehow never figured out  by casting.

Rank #12: BB21 Episode 4: The Shaker Cup Shakeup

Podcast cover
Read more

This week on Big Brothers, Vito Calise and Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) waste no time jumping into game talk. The big chunk of today’s episode has to do with the CBS edit and if it is changing for the better. As live feeders know, Jack has been a tyrant running rampant in the house and spewing hate, for the first time this week we saw that side of him on the CBS primetime show instead of the hero edit we’ve seen. His weird moment with Kemi over a water bottle in the fridge was the first time the casual viewer got to see how much of a jerk this guy can be. But there was plenty more talked about on this week’s episode.

Other Topics

Jack saved his beard and Adam gives insight onto how this effects production and what the rules are with changing your appearance inside the house.

Cliff winning the camp comeback challenge and the HoH. What does this mean for the game? Will we see a power shift or another week of disappointment,.

Was it smart for the 6 shooters to expose them turning on their alliance to try and get someone like Cliff out or should they have waited for a bigger move?

Christie’s freak out. Is this strategy or is it just like Vanessa in season 17 where we keep waiting for these DR sessions saying it’s strategy that never come.

Kate Game: She seems to be the most likable person in the house right now from the outside but how is her actual gameplay? Adam and Vito get into her game and talk about an alliance she’s in that you are not seeing on the CBS show.

Week 1 nominees/targets and how they seem to stick around and fade off into the background and make it a long time into the game. The Big Brothers give some examples from the past.

Podcast cover
Read more

This week on Big Brothers, “Power of” Vito and Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) are excited to finally have an exciting week of Big Brother to talk about.

Before last week’s live eviction all hell broke loose within the 6 shooters. They turned on each other 80 minutes before the live show and some brave soul leaked the footage to Twitter. The fight was Christie, Tommy and Jack vs Jackson, Kat and Holly and it was over the possibility of Kat Holly and Jackson knowing each other outside of the house … even though Tommy and Christie are the ones that REALLY know eachother. Christie’s behavior in the house is getting more and more erratic by the day.

Jess showed up this week in a big big way and took out the almighty Jack, who seemed like he was in a prime spot to completely dominate the game. Jess won both the HoH and PoV and did what Cliff was unable to do a few weeks prior.

When Jack was evicted, Julie Chen grilled him on his controversial comments while in the house. For the first time we got to see an evicted houseguest look at the comments he made and answer for them in front of everyone. Jack also was the recipient of some great goodbye messages from a pair of houseguests happy to see him go.

Rank #17: Big Brothers Episode 5: Johnny Tremmel in Studio

Podcast cover
Read more

So to make up for not doing an episode this week, we did double the time. Chris and Vito were in Montreal and somehow could not access the show at all through the CBS app in a different country. “I’m” Chris Stanley got really sick the night before the podcast and couldn’t make it in so Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) and “Power of” Vito did it on their own. All season the guys have been starting the show saying “this is the best episode yet” and it continues again this week. It’s no BS, the show is just the best its been in years. The cast wants to play the game and nobody is out here playing for second place or even worse, playing for Jury. Adam gives some great Houseguest perspective on this one, about if he ever dealt with HoHitis, getting to do a storage room celebration, how as a houseguest you figure out what’s probably getting on the show and what ends up getting left on the cutting room floor and being in the house when Lawon thought he had “superpowers”. We catch you up on the current house drama and where we think the gameplay is heading. Who is doing bad, who is playing it perfectly and everything in between. For the second half of the podcast, “Power of” Vito sits down with Johnny Tremmel, a Casting AP/Recruiter for the show. Johnny helps with all the east coast casting and if you’ve been to the New York open call then you’ve met him. Johnny is a superfan all the way back to season 1 who actually auditioned with Adam back in the day. Johnny gives some advice to people who may want to try out for the show while giving a perspective on the game from someone who helps put the show together. Some people he found that ended up making the show were Cody Calafiore and Frankie Grande from BB16, Jessica Graf from BB18 and Haleigh from this current season, and we get his opinion on how he thinks those players did and how Haleigh is doing now.

The Big Brothers are back in studio together this week with “Power of” Vito, Chris Stanley and Adam Poch (Big Brother 13) all talking about this week on the feeds and online. This week was everyone’s favorite week in the Big Brother house … Double Eviction. Here’s what the Big Brothers discuss this week.

  • “Julie Chen Moonves”. Is this the end of Julie Chen on Big Brother? Do we think she will be back next week?

  • “SaveBBUS” – Is Big Brother in danger of getting canceled after this year? Do we think the show will go on and where could it possibly end up.

  • Is Tyler sending Brett to jury his strongest game move yet? Will this turn the jury for him or against him?

  • Is this Tyler and Angela showmance the worst thing for their games?

  • Will Tyler cut Angela at the end and take Kaycee? What is his best move.

  • Brett’s goodbye message, was this a Paul level mistake or was there a deeper plan for other houseguests to set that up?

  • Adam gave Haleigh tofurkey of the week. Vito comes to her defense and says why he thinks she is one of the better players and how she could have went farther in this game.

  • Are the videos from home a good thing or a bad thing? Was the call from home houseguests used to get better for the show.

  • JC’s family issues and video from home

  • Are late double evictions less exciting because the houseguests are expecting it and it comes off less frantic? Do they have too much time to plan for what they will do in a double eviction now?

  • Is “Blockstar” The best nickname in Big Brother history

  • Listener question: What comp would JC win
  • Is blockstar the best nickname?

  • Vito and Chris ask Adam why the photo going grey is so dramatic.

Power of Vito and Chris Stanley are back for the final time to talk about Big Brother 19. The live finale was exciting and ended with Paul once again coming in second place, for those of you keeping track, the second time in a row.

Josh, the “human bean” from Miami pulled a move like Ian Terry from Big Brother 14 and used the bitter jury to his advantage and beat Paul in a 5-4 vote. Paul refused to own up to his amazing game and played when questioned by the jury and instead continued to lie to everyone. Normally, this would seem like the reason Paul lost the game but this bitter jury is unprecedented. Elena was straightforward about being bitter and Alex said she was going to vote for Paul until she was told in the Jury House that she was a “joke” to Paul and he talked behind her back the entire game. Paul lost the game from overplaying and what some would call “bad jury management” but everyone will remember he played an incredible game with what he was dealt but had to deal with the issues of what may go down as the most bitter jury of all time

.

Cody won America’s Favorite Player because like the Jury, we had a very very bitter fanbase who wanted all of the houseguests to be confused at the result. If you are a Dr. Will fan (who isn’t) and have some time, go check out his interviews from the backyard on Facebook Live after the finale.
