Mentor Rumor Gains Steam - Janelle's Twitter Gaffe.

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.

Do you buy the "Mentors" rumors?

As much as some people hate rumors it does give us something to talk about as we build up into a froth waiting for Big Brother 14 to begin.

A couple days ago a fake 'insider' account popped up on twitter and lasted all of 24 hours, if that.  The account claimed a few things, none of which are worth repeating since it is obvious it was a fake.

However there have been a few whispers out there - and at least a few rumors posted by people that aren't totally discredited based on past 'leaks' they have provided about reality shows.

One such account on Twitter has been pushing one of the rumored 'twists' for this season of Big Brother and that is the idea of "Mentors." Names tossed about that I have seen include Dan (BB9 winner), Mike "Boogie" (BB2, BB7 Winner), Janelle (BB6, BB7) and a few others.  Matt from BB12 would like you to think he is returning but it is all a ruse (sorry Matt!).

Imagine four (Four BIG Surprises have been advertised) former players acting as advisors to newbies.  Now I speculated on how this might work the other day and the biggest issue I see is how do you have at least 17 HGs in the house AND 4 mentors?  Even if you count the mentors as Hgs you would still need 20 total people to meet the 17+ total (assuming you have an even number of newbies per mentor).  Not to get too technical here, ok maybe I am, but 3 newbies + 1 mentor x 4 = 16 HGs which is less than 17 so you would need 4 newbies + 1 mentor to get to 20 hgs.  That’s a LOT of people in the house.  Unless as I also speculated you eliminate a chunk of people before the show even goes live.

The idea of mentors makes total sense in that we have seen it recently in other shows.  The Voice, Duets, and others have a mentor theme to them so it would be plausible that Alison Grodner and company might try this 'twist.'  I for one and not crazy about the idea but I guess we could give it a shot for a season.

Remember - this is ONLY a rumor.  It will be sometime next week before we know even some of the cast (they may hold some names back to tease us).

What do you think?  I've seen a lot of people say they will skip this season if any former HGs return.  And do you think, if they do return as mentors they will end up being allowed to also play for the $500,000?

The live feed special ends on July 11th - if you plan on getting the feeds it would be great if you would sign up via links on this site!

Big Brother 14 kicks off July 12th - ABC Glass House starts June 18th

Let me get this out of the way first.  Big Brother starts July 12th.  Well the show starts July 12th - the HGs will be in the house for several days beforehand as usual.  This is a week later than the normal start time, perhaps CBS is trying to shorten the run.  In 2007 - BB8 premired on Thursday, July 5th.  Either way - July 12th is when it kicks off so I get one extra week to relax before life goes crazy!

Well - I guess maybe I don't, have you heard about ABC's new entry into the reality TV world?  Glass House will start June 18th and it promises limited live streaming (which kicks off Monday, June 11th).  Here is a list of the contestants:
