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".

Subject: Hey all you BB fans....
Body: So Wednesday we're doing a press junket and introducing the new BB10 cast mates so if anyone has some good questions that we might not think of let me know ok! Just wanted the fans to be a part of this some how : ) Watch the clips on CBS2. com/bigbrother
Everybody complains when the feeds go down for a few hours before the eviction show. Well, according to Evel Dick this year we'll have something to watch besides flames and/or the same old trivia.
I thought long and hard when the offer to do House Calls was made. I really did. But to me the bottom line was this.... I had a good time doing it and obviously with the amount of people watching on the days I co-hosted the show, you enjoyed it as well. So, I decided to do HouseCalls one day a week, on Thursdays. And yes, I will be talking to the evicted HouseGuests on the show. So, expect the unexpected with Gretchen at the wheel and me with my foot pressing the gas peddle to the floor.
Last season was such an overwhelming success with the things I did for Real Player Super Pass, that we have decided to expand my roll with them. So, every Wed. when the feeds normally go down because the live show takes place that day. Yes, the eviction day is Wed. this year. So, when the feeds go down at 3pm on the west coast and 6pm on the east coast... You will be getting programming this season instead of just a screen saver...
You are correct! You will get to see a very loosely put together show of sorts that I will be doing live from the Cat Club on Sunset Blvd, here in Hollywood. I will have guests, friends and random people on the show with me talking about the previous week on Big Brother. Talking about everything, nothing will be censored... My guests, well most of them, you will recognize, some you will want to *****, some you will want to punch. It is not going to be all past houseguests, it will be more people that are just big fans of the show and have some type of celeb status or another. You will have to just check it out.
I will let you know what time exactly it will go on Real Player every week, when I figure out what time would be best. But I am thinking 4pm pacific, 7pm eastern. Then the live eviction show comes on at 8pm.
THE FIRST TWO SHOWS WILL BE AVAILIBLE TO EVERYONE!
You will not have to be signed up for Super Pass for the first two shows of the season. But after that, yep.... you need to be getting the feeds in order to see me do this trainwreck in the making that I am gonna call a show.
It should all get rolling about the 16th of July.
I came very very close to getting my own ShowTime show that would have either preceded or followed BBAD. Didn't happen this season, but a lot of people took notice at how willing ShowTime was to jump into bed with me. But things out of my control made the bottom fall out of the deal... It's too bad, it would have been a blast to do.
So, starting next month watch me on Real Player on Wed. tba and House Calls on Thursday at Noon (new time)
For everyone writing saying they have tickets to the live eviction shows now that they are having an audience for those. All of you who have been asking if I will be there for those shows.... I was told that there will be no past House Guests in the audience for those shows. They want them to be different than the finale show. Which I totally understand. So, no I will not be at those shows, sorry.
Oh, and just so you are jealous.... I will be up at the Playboy Mansion for the 4th of July
And did I say that Eric and Jessica broke up?
According to Joker's Update, the BB10 has been rounded up and put into sequester in preparation for the July 13 opener.
One cast member has already been replaced, though, and supposedly by New York model Laura Leigh. If this photo is indeed her, I pray the rumor is true.
Also, the live eviction shows will be in front of a studio audience.
The BB9 finale was this evening. Adam won it 6-1 over Ryan.
At the end of the show Julie mentioned that the season ten would begin on July 13th.
Be sure to bookmark this blog as we will be back ready to take on the newest batch of houseguests with out own take on what is really going on inside the house.
If anything interesting pops up in the meantime I am sure one of us will be posting a note here about it as well!!
The site is back so I am copying a lot of the posts from here back over to there and I will turn this back into the future home for BB10.
