Just a quick little update of sorts...and, of course, some self-promotion. While season 15 commences on Wednesday, June 26, the first episode of The Big Brother Gossip Show is tentatively scheduled for two weeks from tonight (June 22). We’ll probably ustream the live recording, which again will tentatively be set for 10 pm ET.
By then, we will know who will be going into the house, so the rumor mill will have dissipated a bit. Wow, there have been some crazy rumors! Originally, we were led to believe that it was all-newbie cast, and the biggest ever, but there is now some doubt to that. Some people are still claiming it’s an all-stars season, but there is NO evidence to support that. Trust me, NO evidence.
Another story floating around that seems to be gaining some traction is the presence of former Survivor and/or Amazing Race cast members. My initial reaction to that is “meh”, but it could work as long as it is not a past winner or big name. My problem with returning Big Brother cast members has always been the new players treat them as royalty. Veterans of other shows may not have the same advantage, but it would be similar. I want everybody to be on the same level.
One other rumor with some legs (and we all know I love legs) is a twist involving players who know each other. This I’m not crazy about, mainly because it’s been done before! At this point, though, it’s clear that the producers believe the show is all about twists, and, as usual, the commercials that are currently airing promise more big twists than ever. I’d rather they just fill the house with brazen psychos that aren’t afraid to ruffle feathers. Even the best twists can’t save a season full of robotic Shane-types.
Of course, I have to include a plea to buy your live feeds. If you don’t purchase them through the links on this page, please support your favorite Big Brother sites. In fact, buy from anybody but those former Real twits, please. CBS promises that starting on Monday, they will have content exclusive to feed watchers, so it makes sense to buy them as soon as possible. Plus, you save 20%!
