A male who was born before you and related to you by blood. He is your best friend and sticks up for you. You can rely on him to lift you up when you are down, have your back when no one else does, and love you unconditionally. He gives you advice, even though you might not want to hear it. You are always in each other's lives, no matter what life throws your way.
I had a bad day at work, so I called my big brother and he cheered me up.

My big brother stood up for me when I was being bullied.

An omnipresent, seemingly benevolent figure representing the oppressive control over individual lives exerted by an authoritarian government.
The practical applications of Big Brother watching you today: surveillance cameras, wiretaps, tracking Internet use, spychips, digital facial recognition, etc.

The only hope to 20-something's wanting to prove to the rest of the country that their ego is bigger than everyone else's, in order to bring fame and fortune to their otherwise hopeless lives (with the exception of Pop Idol and X-Factor). In the big brother house, the problems occur when these people realise they are not being noticed and, as a result, have to make a point of this by shouting, screaming, wailing, yelling and getting as drunk as possible in order to try and convince people they are 'really entertaining'. As a result, the public decides to vote them out, meaning that when they face eviction they begin to make out they had already planned to walk out anyway, and that they felt that they had already had enough of living with people they just don't get on with.

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..."
Day 22, 4.02am in the big brother house. After a day of arguing about chicken, the housemates have finally gone to bed.
Day 22, 4.05am. Craig sneezes.

A Body or Character, that exsists in the book 1984, who is said to be watching every citizen at any given moment in the state of oceanina, in order to keep to control of the governmental Party, it makes sure no-ones doing anything rather naughty, however this dystopian Character is pretty cool idea, Dutch People decided to take a massive shit on Mr orwell, and name a show after it, and fill the "big brother" house, full of social degenrates, Who either sit around, do fuck all, make a mess, or masturbate with strange looking objects, a great way to inprove the sellabillty of the show would be to scatter many weapons about the house, last man standing eats. the show being quite ironic as it being, because it destracts viewers from atcully thinking, being what the real concept of big brother was trying to do.
Me-"did you hear"
you-"what"
Me-"Orwell didn't die of TB,He Atcully shot himself in the head when he heard about the show big brother"
You-"he died in 1946"
Me-"oh........well he had a time machine"
