Full kegs contain 15.5 gallons of beer, which is exactly 1984 US fluid ounces.

Big brother is portrayed as a reality tv show when, in reality, it is not. Free food, free drinks (including alcohol), shelter, no need to work, housemates you don't like (but still want to f***) and regular silly tasks 24 hours of the day does not sound like reality, unless of course you are an art student at the University of Birmingham. The only time you really feel you are seeing reality is on eviction night, when the housemate faces their partner and finally remembers "oh shit, i wish i didn't do that" and you get a look from their partner that says "you're in for it. just wait 'til we get home..."
