Latest Rumor: One HG Is 75 Years Old!

Although the cast has yet to be revealed, rumors are circulating about the makeup of this year's cast. Apparently, they're going for a "liberal" versus "conservative" angle by casting people on the far ends of the political spectrum. So far there's word of a gay rodeo cowboy, a 53 year-old New Orleans "socialite", a preacher's son, a Hooter's babe, and a Catholic school teacher who brags he would leave the country if Hillary was elected President (I guess he doesn't have to worry about that). Oh yeah, and Jerry, the 75 year-old self-professed "biggest Big Brother fan in the world". Sure he is.

I must say I'm not crazy about this idea. I'd certainly welcome discussions more serious than what we've seen in the past couple of years, but I really hate the talk radio/cable news liberal/conservative "screamfests".

As much as the showmance angle can get old - there is no way the cast will be just some political thing (then again it is an election year...).

hmmmmmmmm

Happy 4th!

I know it's not going to be just political, and I am happy that it's not just 13 Real World rejects. But I worry that they're going to go overboard in creating social and political conflicts. Then again, what else can be expected.

To actually add something this this post, since I'm here, they had a casting call out for somebody with PETA ages ago, who knows if they found one. They knew what they wanted right after BB9 ended.

Thank god it will be 13 strangers, as that was well needed as they haven't done that since S4. But they must have a one track mind, as they casted for conflict in that a staunch Republican and a Democrat. A gay person (the Cowboy?) and an anti-gay person. PETA and a hunter etc etc..........

They also threw out the old Survivor gimmick of fans vs favs too in the application. I think they were ready to hit the panic button and bring back ED. We know that won't happen but those were the 2 ideas that floated around, and they stuck with people who have opposite views in life.

It's for 500k, and of course they all know it, so my guess is the people who are in the house, who got casted to hate each other, will actually form a partnership. So it will break down the same as pairs. The odd 13th housemate will of course be a good looking model who doesn't have anybody to conflict with.

Said good looking model, if male, will be my favorite house guest. Guaranteed.

The commercial is confirming my fears about this whole red state/blue state bs.
