I am 12 years old and my parents and I watch this all the time. I started watching when I was about 5. Recommended for ages 9 and up because there is smoking and flirting, but 9 and up can probably handle it, as long as they are mature enough.
The show is amazing, but it's better for tweens and older. The only product placement shown is for food, which hardly matters. It's never intentionally shown and sometimes blurred out. Houseguest make a habit of walking around in their swimsuits.
In the actual TV show, the most anyone will see are some skimpy bikinis and people in their night clothes (usually meaning fairly modest underwear). Most seasons have at least 1 showmance, which means plenty of makouts.
it's not as bad as people make out-no sex is shown on screen (which is rare anyways) ALL swearwords are bleeped out, the only drinking is when they win the right to alcohol (rarely), no violence! and even though the messages usually aren't very positive, it's funny to watch the housemates plot against eachother, i've watched almost every series and i'm 14..:)
Big Brother is an amazing show! I don't think i've missed a season yet! Even though there is backstabbing and manipulation there is no reason someone shouldn't be aloud to watch it. I think someone 10+ could handle it. This show is real life. It's hilarious and I'm always going to be watching it!
CSM, What is up with you these days?!?!?!? You're criticizing all the good shows! First Pokemon, and now BB?!?!?!?!? Come on, this show is awesome! I've watched it since I was 4! I have no problem with it all! They blur out nudity and censor swears. Sure, there's been parts where bad language is said , the houseguests drink, women wear skimpy clothing (One of them was a Playboy Playmate of the Year), and attack each other, but it's clean! It's just a more mature version of Pokemon to me. You enter a house and are pitted against each other for the summer, and you have to team up or work on your own. Just keep the kiddos off Live Feeds and make sure they are in bed when Big Brother After Dark comes on. (I LOVE IAN TERRY FROM SEASON 14!)
Big Brother really is a great show, and there isn't much to worry about here. Yes, there is frequent use of foul language, but of course the major insults/swear words are bleeped out. There is barely any nudity (if there is, it is censored) on the broadcasted show, but if you watch Big Brother: After Dark or subscribe to the live feeds, everything is uncensored.
If you haven't seen this show, I highly recommend that you do. In my opinion, it is appropriate for the whole family.
My favorite reality TV show! Possibly even my favorite TV show. Contestants are trapped in a huge house with no way to contact the outside world. They have challenges. They make friends with other contestants, and possibly even dating relationships. So there's sexy stuff. Of course there will be language. It's a reality TV show! Some of it is bleeped, some of it isn't. It's really an amazing show that provides entertainment for the teen and the adult.
This is a AEWSOME show! My mom and I wach it every Sunday, Wednsday and Thursday. It's a great show for 11+ only if they're mature enough and I don't think that any kid is going to stay up until 12 or 1 in the morning. I LOVE IAN AND DANIELE!!!!!!!!
i love this show. i must say, it is also very cussy and sexual. a TON of implied sex. sometimes characters cuss each other out, but stuff like the s- word and the f- word is bleeped out. there is tons of betrayal and schmeing. enough said.
