Big Brother 15: A Closer Look at the House
Happy *7* Days til Big Brother 15!!
1 week from tonight, we'll be watching the premiere of BB15.. and then.. drumroll please... The Live Feeds will kick on just after the west coast premiere!
It is now confirmed that we will meet the HGs tomorrow, Thursday, June 20th. We also have specific info about the twists - 2 of them.
- As suspected, there will be 3 nominees this season.
- We, the public, will be choosing a BB15MVP every week. For more details on all of this, please see this post.
Ya know what..
Let's let Julie tell you all about it herself... Watch the video. :)
Yesterday, we got an up close and personal look at the new digs via the House Tour Video with Julie Chen. If you missed that, here's the direct link to the post.
Today... Let's look even closer! We've got still photos of every room! They did such an amazing job this year. It's just beautiful!
Oh! If you've signed up for the feeds via the links here on BBDish, and you're looking for the #BBDishLucky15 Tweet of the Day, here's the one you want to Retweet for Thursday, June 20th. Thursday at 7pm eastern, yet another Disher is going to be reimbursed by us, thereby making their BB Live Feeds FREE! :-) Actually, if that tweet passes 100 legit RTs, we're gonna have 3 winners on Thursday. (I had the Wednesday tweet up all day, but since it's past 7 eastern now, I replaced it with the one that's useful for you.)
Now... Without further ado, here are the stills. Clicking on any of them will bring you to the 23.99 Special Deal on the Live Feeds. Remember, it ends on June 25th, the day before the premiere. Don't miss out!
Bedroom #1 ~ This is the more masculine of the 2 bedrooms. What do you propose we call it? The Eames Room? I'm open for suggestions...
Bedroom #2 ~ I love the bright colors and sense of whimsy in here. I just wish they'd given us a still showing the other, more playful angle on the room. You can see it in the mirrors. This bedroom is an intentional nod to the "It's a Small World" ride. I know the Sherman Brothers don't get paid a dime when anyone sings the song - never did... I wonder if it's now in the public domain, and if so, might we end up wishing it wasn't? Not that makes much of a difference to Skippy.
If one of our increased powers is an eviction vote, I can really see this room playing a huge, albeit unintentional role. I predict that whoever gets told to Stop Singing (and sending us to fishies) the most often, totally suffers the wrath of the live feed watchers.
The Memory Wall ~ Warm colors, streamlined... Perfect for staring at.. for hours on end.. memorizing every tiny detail of your housemates faces... when you think no one's looking. ;-) I can't wait for them to fill it in with pictures!!
Up Up & Away ~ We see this strong graphic element in the reflection of the mirror behind the memory wall, and here's a closer detail. All the arrows are pointing up towards the camera, reminding the BB 15 HGs that they are being watched, all the time, lest they forget it for a single moment.
2 Angles on the Dining Room and Kitchen ~ Love the globe! Love the cool fixtures high on the walls!
What really grabs my attention here is the island and the additional seating it provides. In the video, Julie mentioned 16 seats around the dining table. With the new island and the regular counter extension, that's 5 more chairs. Hmm! How many Jodies this season???
The Hallway to the Lounge and Bathroom ~ It's almost like the arrows are saying, "Gotta Wee? This way!!" By the way, totally love the decor pieces below the staircase. The one looks like.. well, it looks kinda naughty... And the ball? I wonder if it's soft and they can play on it? I do dig that the stairway leading to HoH is gold, and I'm always a fan of silver and gold accents.
2 Angles on The Airport Lounge ~ Totally reminds me of the glory days of Pan Am. I half expect to see a stewardess pop in mid-season, offering them "Coffee, Tea, or Me?"
From this angle we see the fantastic detail work of the mural, and the real runway lights, as well as the model planes and the all important cocktail service cart.
The Spa Bathroom ~ Love Love Love Love Love Love Love! Seriously. Completely. LOVE!
The HoH Landing ~ This is the area just outside the HoH room where the HGs play chess, hide, play pranks, tell secrets, daven mincha and maariv, make drama, make out, make deals, and periodically make a nuisance of themselves to the HoH.
The design element we have here is aerial shots of the freeway. The cool part for me is how it starts on the chess table, and continues up the wall...
The HoH Room ~ In the video, Julie Chen mentioned that this room is black and white, because for the HoH, everything is black and white. I'm not the argumentative sort, but as soon as she said it, all I could think was, forgive me, but I definitely see shades of gray.
Also, I wonder why they shrunk the bed! There's usually room for 5 on there. Not that I'm suggesting a return to the group naked shenanigans of season 9, but doesn't the HoH deserve a little more space?
The Living Room ~ Hasta la vista 2 Nomination Chairs, Hello Couch made for 3?? We don't know for certain, but Julie did say that the couch figures prominently in the twist for the season, which involves America like never before. On a design note, I love the Sunburst above the faux fireplace! :-) And again, the accents of gold are warming.
2 Angles on the Backyard ~ Dear Production, Please remember to oil the hammock before the HGs come. If someone can remember to do it every time the HGs are locked down inside, that would be amazeballs! Even just once or twice a week would be lovely. :) Thank you!
I *love* the forest mural along the back wall. Looking at the couch, all I can think of right now is how excited I am to see it filled up with bodies!
Very Soon! Happy *7* Days til Big Brother 15!!! :-) I'll see you back here as soon as we get any more news... Like Pics and Bios of our BB15 HGs!

Oh Look! Another 23.99 Live Feeds Special link, carefully and consciously placed, in a less than subtle attempt to get you to sign up for the live feeds from right here on BBDish. ...because that's how we independent BB sites stay afloat. :) Thanks!
