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.

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!

Whats with this "Dynamic Duo" thing?

Late last night this video popped up which is a clip of Julie giving the tour of the house via ET Canada. We've seen the pictures so that part was ho hum - but Jule dropped what may or may not be a bomb when she said, "Dynamic Duos From the Past will have a significant role this season."

Immediatly I thought is Danny and Dick (Danny is currently ticked off at Dick so fat chance), Jeff and Jordan (Jeff is about to start the 3rd season of his around the world (online only) show so I think the odds of that are slim as well. Then I started to think of Dr. Evil and Janelle - no - can't see Janelle coming back this season - she just announced she is expecting - due in December. Maybe D. Evil and Boogie? Haven't heard from either since all stars..... Maybe. Then again - doubt it.

What the hell is 'dynamic duos?' Its going to be a let down whatever it is - just my opinion. I'm hoping they just have a couple former HGs help out with competitions.

Please Big Brother just give us 13 NEW faces and let them not know so much about the game that they predict comps before they happen.

What do you think? Excited? Worried? Think its hype? I'm hoping its hype because I really don't want old HGs brought back into the house unless it is for a VERY short time.
