Audio Interview with Allison Grodner.

Here is an interview with Allison Grodner - it runs about 15 minutes and these are some highlights:

  • The theme this season may be a "summer camp" kind of thing.
  • Allison doesn't have any plans for this or next season (if CBS wants it) to be the last.
  • No definitive number of HGs for this season, she said anywhere from 12-14.
  • Will the fans have a vote this year? Maybe - it seemed to hinge on the number in the jury.
  • Allison admits that at times the producers have checked out the various live feeds on the internet when they think they missed something.
  • An all star season might be possible next year.





31 days to Big Brother 12

Alrighty folks, start getting ready. Big Brother is right around the corner. The ads are on tv and everyone is ramping up for the show which will hit the airwaves on July 8th.

Here is what I know (very little) and what I am guessing is going on currently......

CBS reports that the casting is officially over. However based on past seasons - if you are in your 20s and have an agent and live in the LA area - you might still yet be cast for the show.

A very small amount of the house guests each year are actually found by casting - most are actually discovered by the casting people or agents send in people from their 'stable' they think fit the kind of characters they need for the show.

If it hasn't happened already, the people that have been cast will be moved into individual hotel rooms to keep them isolated for the most part (although previous cast members have said they ate together but were not supposed to talk). For a little Big Brother trivia, it was at this point during Big Brother 4 that Brandon Showalter lost his chance to be in the Big Brother house when he broke out of his hotel room to call his girlfriend (I'll post that story soon). He was replaced by Jee Choe who was the "ex" of eventual winner Jun Song.

Around July 3rd or 4th the HGs that have made the cut will be moved into the Big Brother house and the taping will begin. We won't get to see them live until after the July 8th season premiere but they will use the tape compiled from the time the HGs enter the house until July 8th for the first couple of shows.

The live feeds - in my opinion THE reason to watch Big Brother will be back - I haven't heard any 'new' news in this area but I assume we will once again have four feeds and the ability to flashback to parts earlier in the feeds (but not before July 8th). This is a great feature as it allows all of us to go back and watch anything we missed over and over again (can you say Chima's mic tossing or Ronnie's calling out?).

Big Brother After Dark will also be shown again so those with showtime will get a few hours of the show - in the past it was 12am - 3am Eastern - I'd assume this will be the case again.

Feel free to ask away in the comments section if you have any questions and one of use will give the best answer we have.

One last thing - the 'staff' of Big Brother Gossip will be growing a bit this season. I'm still not sure who all will be participating but I would expect at least two or three new faces - all long time Big Brother fans. I'm looking forward to the new folks helping out as well as the others that have helped in the past!


New Big Brother Commercial

As seen last night during the Survivor finale.

So the official start date is Thursday, July 8th. That means most likely the HGs will move into the house July 3rd or 4th and the first eviction should be July 15th.

52 days to go!


"Matty" might be the Biggest Loser from Big Brother

Big Brother has had a few contestants that have had their names in the news for not so great reasons in the past but BB9's Matt McDonald might have passed everyone else up with his latest indictment in federal court for apparent involvement in BB9 winner Adam Jasinki's Oxycodone drug ring as reported by TMZ on Tuesday.

The drug charge might cost McDonald 1 million dollars and 20 years in prison if convicted.

Besides the drug charges, Matty was arrested April 18th when his 8 week pregnant girlfriend accused him of assaulting her. He was then arrested two days later when the fiance and her family complained that Matty was harassing her to drop the charges.

The NY Daily News has a great summary article on Matty's woes including the following:

Police said McDonald, 26, punched his seven-weeks pregnant fiancée in the face, kicked her repeatedly dragged her around her Boston apartment and tried to strangle her.

Cops said the fight erupted after McDonald found a text message his fiancée received from a male friend and accused her of cheating.

"I hope the baby dies and hope u have a miscarriage," the heavily-tattooed McDonald screamed at his fiancée, according to a police report.

I would have to say that Big Brother 2's Justin Sebik is the current runner up in the 'Biggest Loser' of Big Brother. Although I can't find any new information since 2006, up until then Sebik had accumulated quite a list of accused infractions from assault to 'theft by deception' since he was kicked out of the BB2 house for holding a knife to fellow contestant Krista Stegal's throat.

Just think - Big Brother 12 is just two months away!


Last day to for mailing Big Brother applications is Friday!

There are still a few open casting call dates left but if you want to mail in your video and application you have until this Friday, April 23rd to get it done.

You should go directly to the CBS Big Brother Casting Page to get the most current application.

Good luck to anyone applying! The more real fans of the show that get in the house, the better if you ask me!
