Big Break Disney – Gipper “flyswatter” Finau finally kills his bug

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, a number of people will be pretty disappointed this week watching Andrew Giuliani exit stage left on the Big Break Disney.

Big Break Disney – “Hothead” heads home

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThis week, we watched one of the most passionate, emotional, entertaining, vocal (and dare I say, controversial) contestants The Big Break has ever seen ‘calmly’ exit the series.

Big Break Disney 5: From sad to sensational

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell…I don’t know about you, but for me this week’s Big Break was one sad experience after another, starting with the first immunity challenge.

Big Break Disney 3 – “Skip to my Lou” Kmax gets dunked

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIt was one of those happy/sad episodes for me on Big Break Disney this week.

If ever someone needed a ... Read More »

Big Break Disney 2 – The curtain falls for Andreas

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThey say in show business, “Break a Leg” instead of “Good Luck” because superstitious actors believe that saying “Good Luck” will only bring them bad. I wonder if maybe someone whispered those two deadly words in Andreas’s ear as he headed into day 2 of Big Break Disney. The son of actress Susan Lucci certainly didn’t win any Emmys’ or ...
