I watch Big Brother All Stars as if my life depended on it. Shut-up, it kinda does. Sorta. I get paid a wee little bit each week to blog about this best reality show ever ever, and as such, I feel it's a bit of the life blood. I'm addicted. And it's damn sad the things that are happening to my psyche. I've watched the show on and off for almost all 7 seasons, and the season 2 winner, Dr. Will, was a villain in my home. Evil bastard that he is, he ended up winning, and I was mortified. How could bad behavior be rewarded?
Will's back this year in the All Star competition, and I am hopelessly smitten. WHAT'S HAPPENED TO ME? I can see now that he's a genius for understanding he's playing a game, and nothing more - and as such, he just plays the hell out of everyone. I can admire that. Plus, he's hot. So, now I'm gaga for the bad ass. Oh, what a surprise.
What I'm NOT gaga for is the new "Big Brother Slop" addition. It used to be that those who lost food and luxury competitions got stuck eating PB&J sandwiches for the week. This year, they're not so lucky. They were granted buckets full of the so-called "slop", and apparently, this is nasty shit. I needed to know - what the heck is in that stuff?
Thank you TV Week Insider - I can now rest easy. It's not so bad, apparently - just a commercially available goo with oodles of fiber and protein. Healthy, even, it just apparently doesn't taste so hot. In case it's bothering you as much as it bothered me, slop has the following ingredients:
Natural oats, proprietary blend of whey protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, wheat protein isolate, milk protein isolate, natural and artificial flavors, vitamins and minerals (vitamin A palmitate, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, cyanocobalamin, vitamin D3, alpha tocopherol, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, calcium carbonate, magnesium oxide, zinc oxide, copper gluconate, manganese sulfate, ferrous sulfate, folic acid, potassium iodide), cellulose gum, salt and acesulfame potassium.
I think I had worse stuff for dinner last night.
