I honestly never have liked this show. I just can’t stand sitting infront of the tv and watch this bunch of people doing regular, every day things. I really don’t understand what’s causing all this craze.

My family (my dad, my mom, my sister and even our help, Marlyn) watch this show every single day. They really wait for it to come on. And when it does, I silently retreat back to my digital hidey-hole. Sometimes I just hang out with them infront of the tv, but I’ll be drawing something or reading Harry Potter. Is there something wrong with me that I seemed to be so immune to this craze?

Or maybe I’m just the type of person who likes minding her own business while letting others mind their own. Or maybe I just don’t like spying on people. (’m sorry to say this to avid Pinoy Big Brother fans, but technically, that’s spying). I don’t know, another thing could be is that I strongly believe in respecting one’s privacy. It’s true that these people submitted themselves to this “no privacy” policy in that house, but hey, that doesn’t mean I should exploit it. I don’t know about some people, but it really just feels weird spying on these people’s lives.

Are we (as in, Filipinos), just natural voyeurs at heart? It’s weird, REALLY weird. And man, don’t you think it’s a little sick in some ways? I mean, you can actually see the term “voyeurs” in pornography sites (you know, those popup thingies that you get when you click on some sites? Those annoying spyware things?). Well, that’s just my opinion at least. No offense to those who love the show, I just don’t see the point of spying on other people’s lives.

If you disagree with me, I’d really like to know why—I’ve been trying to make sense of this ever since it started.
