Ever wondered what the different levels of bitching are? There are four and all of them are seen in the Big Brother House.

Base Bitching -- This takes the form of insults that are exaggerated and little more than childish name-calling.

Bond Bitching -- This is where you see two housemates bitching about a third, sitting together and whispering. This is bond-bitching with two purposes firstly to cement a relationship with one another by confiding and the other is conspiratational.

Assassination Bitching -- This is like applying a shotgun to a victim's head and pulling the trigger. It challenges the victim's character and creates a new view of them in both the public and the housemate's eyes.

Scorched Earth Bitching -- This is really the most strategic form of bitching presenting the bitch in a good light while destroying other relationships in one fell swoop. For example, kindly telling someone what others have said about them, then waiting for the bomb to explode. The ripple effect of these strategic bitch-fests have the most long term damage.
