Has anybody notice that alot of the stuff on BB...dishes, beach towels and some home interior stuff is from Target. I have those Polka Dot glasses they use and then I had the same purple stript towel that they wore tonight......I just thought it was funny....maybe I spend way too much time at Target to notice these things, LOL

Target either pays the producers to have their stuff used exclusively (in movies, it is called product placement and can cost into the millions, depending on if the main character "uses" the placed product in the movie)or provides the merchandise in place of buying ads in the show. That's part of the reason in a lot of TV shows, the characters' soft drink cans say stuff like "Soda" or "Cola". I know Target in the past has supplied some of the reward stuff for Survivor. Take a minute and count how many Target ads there are during BB. DH & I have a "game" we play while watching movies at home. When we see something that we think is a product placement (ie package is delivered by FedEx), we call out "Product placement!"
