What a 24 hours it has been! Late Friday night we get a leak of the Big Brother house pictures and then this afternoon something else happens on Twitter that really is making me believe the "Mentor" twist I wrote about is going to happen. Here are the most recent developments.
As I wrote here and on ilovereality.com recently, there has been increasing online 'chatter' that this season we would see four fomrer HGs return to act as Mentors. Late last night Survivor Spoiler "Missyae" released the names of the four former HGs he says will come back to mentor. Those individuals are said to be Mike Boogie (BB3/7), Rachel (BB12/13), Dan (BB10) and Janelle (BB6/7). Dan out and out denied it and Rachel claims to be in Costa Rica, Mike Boogie doesn't tweet so no luck on his whereabouts.
That leaves Janelle, who on Saturday tweeted she was off to the airport to fly to Greece for a vacation. Now this struck many of us as odd, being she has a 6 month old baby but whatever..... that will apply if she mentors BB as well so I guess she MIGHT be doing that. However, next up was a tweet you see below:
As you can see it appears she took a picture of herself at the airport. Some were curious as to why she didn't show her face, her reply was she wasn't made up. Of course many of us on Twitter were already suspicious so the questions continued. She said she would be doing her scheduled Rumor Control appearance on Monday from a hotel room in Greece - oh really??
A bit later, Twitter user @Exlenne did some snooping and discovered the "airport" picture was actually from a blog on W Magazine's website posted in 2010. After this was reveald to the twitter univers Janelle deleted the tweet from her timeline. Unfortunatley for her, myself and some other people hadn't closed our browser window and we snapped screenshots as you can see. I even tweeted a side by side picture for everyone to see.
So the fact that Janelle deleted the picture and made the comment that, "I'm not gonna let you bitches stress me out while I'm on vacation. #bigbrotherfansrnuts" leads me to believe that she was 'busted' by a fellow fan and is indeed on her way to Los Angeles to participate in Big Brother 14.
You just can't underestimate Big Brother fans and their determination to find out things before the show starts. I don't think anyone was trying to get Janelle in trouble, they just wanted the info. Her best course of action would have been to post nothing at all rather than try to make up a lie.
Am I now 100% sure of the Mentor twist? Nope, but this sure has me thinking more and more that we are going to see it.
