See this summer I had a cancer scare, which at any age is scary but at 30 is just nuts. My family lives in Ga, me in CA, so they werent here to help me deal.
It was a really difficult time for me, and I had no one. So while waiting and worrying I would watch the feeds, and I know that this sounds weird but watching Jess and Eric having fun and playing around really helped me through that time. They made me laugh when all I wanted to do was scream and cry. In the end the test came back negative and everything was fine, but it was the longest couple of weeks of my life. As lame as it may sound I dont know what I would have done if I didnt have the feeds and those two.
It feels funny to owe so much to two people whom you have never met, but I owe them a lot, and thats why they will alway have a special place in my heart.
Every summer, I spend countless hours watching the feeds, reading the live feed updates, reading commentaries, etc. However, I have never been so completely absorbed with a season of Big Brother as I was this season, and it was not because of the game itself.
In past seasons, I always had my favorites and those that I wanted to win. However, I have never really been personally invested in any past BB HG's, and generally once the seasons ended, that's where it stopped for me. Watching them interact together was incredible and entertaining, and I've never been so addicted to the live feeds as I was this season.
They were so incredibly fun, mature, smart, and charismatic that they became my two favorite HG's of all time just days after I purchased the feeds. There was an incredible chemistry between Jessica and Eric, and as time went on in the house, they became closer and closer, and could not help but fall for each other. No matter what obstacles came their way, they worked their way through them and it only made them stronger. Since Big Brother ended, they have officially become a couple, and the amazing bond between them has continued to grow stronger.
I have never been so invested in a relationship that did not even remotely involve me, and I have never cared so much about two strangers. However, these two are not your typical reality couple, there is something special about them, and I wish them the absolute best of luck in their future. They made it a summer to remember for their fans, and there has never been any couple like them before, and there will never be one again. They are truly one of a kind. Daisyduck Eileen this past summer of big brother i found a couple so amazing and genuine i never thought i would care about a so called showmance but then i realized it was more then that,they had true feelings for each other.
THIS was the year or so I thought. Then, I started to feel that magic that was Jeric. I watched videos, read updates and watched the show, and slowly, I fell into dream that they had created with their laughter and fun. I remember watching BB After Dark for the first time and getting upset that they were not focusing on Jess and Eric, and I knew I had to give in and turn on the feeds. After that happened, my summer became a blur. Every day I ran to see them grow closer to one another and just have the best time.
There is something so relatable and real about Jeric that has never been true for any other BB couple for me. Thank you so much to the two of you and your families for making this season of BB the best ever.
