Big Brother

The Psychology of Big Brother Dictatorships

Listen to the Podcast

Derrick Levasseur, Boston Rob, Kim Spradlin, and now Paul Abrahamian have all played dominant games on Survivor and Big Brother that have often left fans frustrated. Players are often criticized for their blind obedience, with fans saying that if they were in the house, they would be standing up to such obvious manipulation. Psychology expert Jon Krause joins psychology amateur Taran Armstrong to discuss the mechanisms behind this style of gameplay and what makes it possible.
