The Big Brother Hype Machine In High Gear

The rumors just keep popping up and although I am generally one not to gossip too much about those kind of things (ironic eh?), I do feel the need to address some of the current 'whispering' that is going on out there on the internet about the upcoming season of Big Brother.

Will this been an "All Star" cast? Will it be an all new cast? Will it be a mix of new and old?  Family/friends of alumni?

I discussed this with co-contributor John at lunch and he suggested posting our own 'inside info' rumor that would be impossible to disprove once the real details are provided.  So this is what we know....

  • There will be a pretty even mix between men and women in this season's cast.
  • The average age of the contestants will be the upper 20's - maybe low 30's.
  • There will be at least ONE 'gay' and or 'lesbian' cast member.
  • There will be at least one, more likely two African American contestants.

There you go - you heard it here first - you can take that info to the bank - tweet it - facebook it - all that kinda stuff!

But seriously, here are some of the rumors and facts floating around on the social media currents that I've been seeing.

The feeds will kick off a day later than normal because they have decided to do a two night "Move-In Event."  That means that instead of tuning in Wednesday at 9pm Pacific, or as we call it "BB Time," we will have to wait until Thursday 10pm BB Time (Friday 1am Eastern) to see the new house guests and start discovering whats gone on since they entered the house about a week earlier.

In past seasons the potential house guests have been 'kidnapped' and put up at a hotel near the Big Brother house on the weekend before they enter (that would be this coming weekend).  If that's true then they are currently still out and about, checking out the internet and television and now know that the premiere will be a two night thing.  What exactly does that mean for the game play?  Some are speculating that it means part of the cast will enter one night and another part a second night.

That gives some credence to one theory that there might be a group of alumni that enter the house before / after a group of new folks (Several former BB contestants are implying they are in sequester or about to go there - something that happens each season of late after Janelle implied she was going on a vacation to 'Greece' right before BB14).  There have been similar situations of groups entering at different times such as Big Brother 8 where Dick, Dustin, and Jessica entered before the others and eventually joined them and Big Brother 14 where Britney, Dan, Mike "Boogie" and Janelle joined the newbie cast after they had already entered the house.  While they TV show may show some HGs entering on Wednesday's broadcast and others entering on Thursday's, they may actually enter on the same day separated only by a few minutes or hours (through the magic of 'editing.').

I personally have to assume that at least SOME of this seasons cast will be fresh faces.  There was a lot of time devoted to the casting process with many many casting calls set up and constant reminders to apply for the show.  If the intention all along was to have an 'all star' cast or a cast of only alumni and friends & family then it would seem like a lot of money and peoples time was wasted.  Will Kirby also implied he had been contacted by at least two finalists looking for advice (of course that could be a smoke screen as well tossed out by Dr. Evil).

So what do you think?  Please chime in and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming season.  Are you hoping (like me) for a completely new cast? Do you want an all alumni cast?  Who DON'T you want to see return if it is indeed a cast with at least some veteran players (hmmmmmmmm???????)?

Three-ways and MVP's, Oh My!

As we get closer to premier night, more info is slowly trickling out...along with dozens and dozens of rumors, most of them ridiculous.

As Ash pointed out, yesterday started with the big reveal of the house design. *Yawn* I never really care about that stuff. It's pretty much the exact same layout, with different designs and colors. 

However, one difference sent the online world into a frenzy. Instead of two nomination chairs, there's a love seat. The rumor mill went into crisis mode. OMG! OMG! Talk generally centered on the idea of three nominees, and the possibility that America will pick one of them.

That's not to be. CBS announced today that we will NOT be picking the third nominee. I have a feeling, though, that the three nominee method won't last long. If I had to pick an over/under, I'd say under the halfway point of the season. Keep in mind that quite a few of the recent seasons have had rules that only lasted a month or so (coaches, immunity, etc.).

The public does have a voice in one new aspect of the show, though. Every week, we will be picking a "MVP" of the week. This scares me to death, especially since the first vote starts tomorrow! How can we pick a MVP based on a picture and a short interview? The pessimist in me is not happy.

On to some rumors. There were loads of silliness yesterday, as idiots were pretty much just making shit up and posting them as facts. One person listed a handful of past houseguest relatives as "definites", even though one of them would have to be accompanied by a full time doctor.

However, it does look like one particular relative is coming into the game, and it's one of my worst nightmares come true. I had noticed a week or so ago that Rachel was heavily tweeting about this season, but thought little about it. Then came word that her sister was a possibility...then a probability...then she copied Janelle's gimmick from last year of posting about a vacation in Greece. 

The Survivor rumor also seems to have some legs. Sources are pointing to either a virtual nobody who was the first or second having his fire extinguished, or an infamous pink-pantied creature from last season. Ooof, please no!

One more little tidbit before I hit publish. Late last night, some online detectives found a twitter account that had been taken over by his friends because he was supposedly going to be on this year's cast. A Harvard lacrosse player by the name of Gabe may or may not have seen his posibility of being on TV screwed up by his friends. Who knows?

Rumors, Lies, and Wishful Thinking

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%!

Big Brother 14 House Pictures Leaked

I don't know how they got out but I can't just sit on them. A link was posted on twitter around 11pm BB time on Friday and as you can see there are 25 pictures from Media Day (which was July 22nd) of the inside of the house. You can see the media folks playing the game and yes, as we heard, Rachel can be seen in at least one picture. Enjoy - discuss - and all that.
