    Best Summer show along with Hell’s Kitchen and Master Chief. I watched the second hour of Master Chief after Big Brother last night. I don’t like that they are both on at the same time. I wish Big Brother was on Tuesday night.

    So happy Big Brother is back! I look forward to watching this every summer since it started back in 2000. It is funny that Rachel’s (Season 13 winner) sister Elissa is a contestant this year and many of the houseguests have already figured it out. Should be interesting how this will play out.
