Live feeds?

We can all agree the live feeds are the most important part of the show. The free live feeds will most likely start after the Wednesday show. They did indicate in the press release “free live feeds from inside the house” So we can rest assured there will be something for us to sink our teeth into. If you live in America and want to enjoy the feeds you will need a VPN. Chances are you already have one. In case you don’t check out this guide.. If you still are having trouble ask in the comments someone will be able to help.

What I have come to expect and will be expecting from a BBCan season:

1) I’ll be incredibly annoyed by 9-11 hour feed blockages for competitions, meetings, and alcohol deliveries. The good old days of being on Slice are long gone, accept it.
2) By week four I’ll be wondering if I’m too invested or if I can cut and run. Mostly because of everything else on this list.
3) All established patterns of twists and doubles and triples and special events will follow the exact same predictable parameters in terms of which houseguests are adversely affected as they have in every season since season 2. The same Kasstink demographic that has made up less than 10% of the total participants from all seasons added together will be adversely affected / evicted by two or more of these staples.
4) a) Due to season 7, an uberdouche alliance of the testosterone enriched will quickly be introduced, but will fail immediately BECAUSE of the predictability of season 7. However, brodowns and ‘we’ll just power through and run this house week after week’ duos will still be a major focus. C’mon, they’ve had those guys ketoing their asses off for three months so they’ll be cut to the point of no airbrush needed. Bank on it.
b) A women’s alliance idea will be presented but fail within 24 hours, because the women that play the showmance game will torpedo the concept. As far as bbcan is concerned a women’s alliance with more than 2 members with the token gay guy on the side doesn’t last the night. Three woman alliances are actually two pairs that share a mutual member.
c) We’ll see a minimum of two showmances vying for that coveted editing room spotlight and tinkly piano montage between week 5-8. Don’t worry, production has already been asking them what type of man/woman they are interested in and showing them pictures of their choices so the pre-authorized showmancers know who they are supposed to make a play for. At least one pair will be foreshadowed as the season showmance to watch by the end of the premiere.
5) Any discussions or scenarios hatched between Friday evening and late Sunday night should not be considered plot or official to the storyline. By the time Monday morning rolls around, and the storyline editors and writers get back on shift, those discussions WILL be discarded and the plot that was proposed on Thursday night / Friday morning will be back on track as if the watchers of feeds suffered a group delusion.
Post season five, weekends are limited staffing, and once full staff returns, the houseguest powerbrokers will be called to d/r on Monday morning just before feedblock for the veto meeting, and it will be like the weekend never happened so none of us should get our hopes up that there will be a storyline shift because of weekend discussions.
6) During the special two day premiere: one of the houseguests that has very little or almost nothing to do with the plot of week one (is in no real danger, will not be in a grand position of power) will be given an inordinate amount of time on the screen and in the d/r of the premiere episodes (perhaps even be given a sense of potential danger gravitas that we will learn, as soon as feeds come on was not an actual plan or threat). Keep an eye on this person that gets an inordinate amount of screen time in the premiere episode: they usually win the season.
Goofy newfie never watched the show; hippy pothead but i’m social saavy; i have a brother in the house isn’t that weird; everyone said i would win and i didn’t it’s not fair; I’m the neda superfan with hyperhydrosis palms and i’m going to talk to the camera as if it’s a 24/7 d/r and nobody will ever walk in or know; look i have no teeth but i’m going to get the boys together: These are the past winners, and the viewers saw more of them (including these identifiers) on premiere nights as spotlight players given lots of camera and d/r time than actually makes sense for what is going on in the house once the feeds come on.
7) I’ll become utterly distracted, and start kvetching royally about the number of people in the house that knew each other and knew past participants in real life. If it’s a mix of past and new this will become even more aggravating. At least one of the houseguests will work in radio / tv and have a previous contract with the parent company. at least four more houseguests will have one to two degrees of seperation… and they’ll all discuss it openly on feeds repeatedly. I’ll be convinced that the series is cast by recruiting four people, then seaching their social media for 8 more recruits, then filling out the dregs with four open casting call participants that will all be gone by week five.

Okay. That’s pretty much what i have come to expect / will be expecting from the upcoming season of bbcan.
