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".
