BBB 12

If you have already read my old posts, you know what I think about “Big Brother Brasil” (Big Brother Brazil, or BBB), since I have written something about BBB11 in the last year (see this link).

BBB12 contenders making sex
For me, this programme is nothing but a waste of time and moral. It’s a sort of programme developed to bring people’s attention through images of bad behaviours and sex scenes. It is a type of programme who praises sculptural bodies and unprincipled conducts. Contenders mustn’t have moral as their main concern - since everything is exposed and their intimacy become public. Intelligence is not needed; competitors must be unmoral. The most amoral one is, the highest her/his probability of being successful in the future (in Brazil, of course).

Whilst Brazilian TVs usually do not show sex scenes during prime-time, “TV Globo” – the most important broadcasting organisation in Brazil - dishes it up through BBB. It looks like contenders are oriented to make sex during their stay in the house. It also seems that they are oriented to do not use too much pieces of clothes. The less clothing, the more asses, and then… more audience.

In this is scene the man was accused of rapping the girl. (BBB12)
OK. Being a man and enjoying women, I do love women wearing G-strings but… not in such a way. Big Brother is neither a film nor a beach; it is a (pseudo-) reality show.  I do not understand how a programme like that has an audience! Why should we learn about others' life that we do not even know? 

The BBB12, has been showing itself as one of the most controversial since its launch in Brazil. There’s a contender who has been accused of rape during the reality show (and Police has initiated an investigation into this case); there’s a girl who left her boyfriend to stay with another guy; there’s other girl who made sex with a participant and cried in the morning of the following day, because she had just cheated on her boyfriend that she “loved”, etc. (in this case, it was funny (or sad) to read about her surprised mother telling that she was astounded by her daughter’s behaviour in front of the cameras).*

It lets me thinking: Is the behaviour of most of Brazilians becoming so low-level that we do not care about what we are watching? Are we being obliged to swallow this sort of garbage? Is curiosity stronger than sound judgment?


I hope we Brazilians may rethink our demeanours and see that such a kind of programme bring us nothing but silliness and stupidity. I’m of the mind that EDUCATION should be priority in this country, then, people could have better judgment on choosing what to watch.

But, our politicians think on the contrary (and so does “TV Globo”)... 

*I do not waste my time watching such a useless programme. However, it’s impossible to do not know what’s going on in this “reality show” due to Yahoo! web page where I have an e-mail account. I believe that Yahoo! gets paid to publish news about this show since you are almost obliged to read it when you access its page (see below screen of the captured page recorded today - 18 Feb 2012):

The main headline says:"Globo (TV) gives up censoring sex on BBB12". In the upper right
