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!

James is living in Paris on fan's dime?

Today I learned something about Big Brother and I will explain it in a minute.

I was crusing around the web sites looking for any news to share just so it doesn't look like this web site is dead. Trust me it will be hopping come next summer but most of us hear just plain don't care about Big Brother when Big Brother isn't on.

Anyways, I come across a note that says that James is now living in Paris and that he got the money to go there from donations. Now I am sitting here thinking of James.....

And I follow the link to the blog where James is apparently pouring out his heart to some lost love, and talking about how tough it is in Paris to make ends meet. I continue on reading and I am really starting to get annoyed that this guy has the audacity to get money from fans to pay for his total screwing around as far as I am concerned.

Then I scroll down to another post (past more pleas for donations) where there is a video blog about a road trip to Austin, Texas this past September. In the video I see no sign of James, just two women talking about driving to Austin and partying. Then into the frame walks James with three beers in his hand. OHHHHHHHH, it was the OTHER James that wrote that blog.

You know - Big Brother 9 James. Pink hair, gay porn, biking around the world James. Things suddenly became much clearer and I felt bad fo thinking so badly of BB6 James. I wonder if he has noticed the lessening of name recognition since pink haired James burst on to the Big Brother scene.

And that was the lesson I learned today. The names are starting to get confusing. James, Alison, April, Mike, and more I am sure if I wanted to spend the time looking it up. Lots of duplicates now in the BB alumni list.

Oh and if you want to read the post that BB9 James wrote, you can find it on his Myspace Blog.

Jen and Nick - Ollie and April


This picture was posted a couple of days ago on this site, unfortunalty there were no details as to where or when it was taken, however it would seem to indicate that Ollie and April are still a couple. While I am a bit surprised it shouldn't be a total shock since it has only been just over two months since BB10 ended afterall if you can believe it.

The bigger surprise to me was the thought of Nick and Jen (BB8) as a couple. Seriously? Did Jen win some brains on a game show or what? I guess someone has to date Jen but she never came across to me as someone I could carry on a conversation with for more than 10 minutes.

So as far as I know the countdown to BB11 is still somewhere around 7 1/2 months. I'm still in no rush :)
