Default Who hear only watches CBB and not normal BB?

I generally don't watch normal BB but I usually watch CBB in the last 3 years. I've only ever watched one normal BB I think and that was in 2005 and I didn't watch all of it. Since then I've never actually watched normal BB. I can't remember which CBBs I seen before 2009 but I've watched CBB in 2009, 2010 and I've watched all of current series so far. Is anyone else like me in that they only watch CBB but not normal BB?

i watch both, but i enjoy CBB more, because when it get's dull, i can atleast convince myself (well it's only 3 weeks, so stick with it). the civilian series can be a chore sometimes, it does take real effort sometimes.

what;s the logic though? This last CBB had more drama than the entire 3 months of regular BB12.

I've said it quite a few times now so excuse if I sound like a broken record but I prefer normal BB because people don't have favourites going into the series. That can be really annoying when they do because then they don't give other HM's a chance. Normal BB there's a clean slate and it takes most people a week or so to get favourites. None of this annoying ''Blah blah blah fan club'' two weeks before the show has even started

I watch, I've always proffered the normal to Celebrity one, bar BB8 in which BBCH was far superior and BB11 where I hated it so ****ing much anything was better.

people don't have favourites going in??? So why is it since BB7 we've had booing going in to regular BB, if no one judges when they go in??

Normal Big Brother to me is a lot better, though I still enjoy CBB, just nowhere near as much (aside from a couple of series'). I prefer learning about complete strangers with everyone for the first time. It's a lot more interesting, both to watch and on the forums.

Years ago I used to watch and love both of them.

But nowadays I've preferred CBB because I've really gotten progressively bored with the long, drawn out regular one. Short and sweet in January every year suits me fine.

I'll give the summer one a chance, but like last year I'll most likely give up a couple of weeks in unless it grabs my attention.
I do miss the days when the summer one would have me hooked from the off throughout the school holidays but then I suppose everything has a shelf life.

I much prefer normal BB, I'm a bit sick of 'celebrities' altogether really, and it's not really long enough to get to know the characters like you can in normal BB.

That's based on first impressions. Favourites going in means that people make their minds up about celebrities based on who they're a fan of well before the series starts. For example I couldn't stand, and never changed my mind, about Jedward and Katona woman. Apart from a few obscure ones we usually have already made our minds up about them.
