Big Brother Croatia Update: A Night Not To Remember

Ozren might be unhappy about many things, but not about the way RTL Televizija covered dramatic events prior to his departure. This evening's daily summary – which was supposed to show highlights of the previous day and evening – concentrated almost exclusively on Krešo (Kreso) and his spectacular run towards freedom. Showing the flight and housemates' immediate reactions wasn't enough – those scenes were edited into long segment about Krešo's first moments outside and his triumphant arrival at stadium.

All that left only 5-10 minutes to cover last night's drama. And in doing so, RTL editors treated Ozren the same way Romanian state television used to treat Ceausescu before 1989 Revolution.

Basically, the only events worthy of RTL interests were Ozren's disgust at Zdravko's boasting about his sex life; some kind of not too heated and incomprehensible argument between quiet Krešo and agigated duo of Filip and Zdravko; Ozren deciding to quit and finally Alen being devastated at the sight of his friend packing his things.

Those who rely exclusively on television are going to get completely different picture about Big Brother House than those who follow developments on Internet.

Dragan, that's the way it happens with US Big Brother as well. Those following only the TV program have a different view of the housemates and what goes on in the house then those of us that follow it on the web and through live feeds.

Thanks again for taking the time to do the updates in English. It's always great to know what's going on in the house, plus, it gives me some idea as to whether what I was thinking is actually close to the truth.
