Great news, my fellow Big Brother fans. CBS has renewed the summer hit for two more seasons. BB17 will air summer 2015 and BB18 will air summer 2016. As long as she doesn’t suffer any programming malfunctions between now and then, Julie Chenbot will continue her duties as host.
This marks the first time ever in Big Brother‘s sixteen season run that CBS has ordered two seasons in one shot. This, thanks to Big Brother 16‘s increase in viewers – averaging 7.56 million in the key demo – and increase in ratings over the summer-long nightmare that was Big Brother 15.
I know I'm not the only one who is counting down the days until Big Brother 16 begins. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Big Brother 16 cast, adding, "Big Brother to debut its MOST TWISTED season ever!"
Twist Number One: Two houseguests will win Head of Household each week. Each HoH will nominate two houseguests for eviction every week. For the first time ever, winning HoH will not guarantee safety for the week.
Twist Number Two: A new interactive element to the game, Team America, will give fans power to influence the game. Twist Number Three: A new competition, Battle of the Block, will dramatically shift the power in the house each week.
“When the houseguests learn about the new twists, they will need to throw out any pre-existing strategy if they want to survive in the game,” promisedAllison Grodner. “The new Battle of the Block competition will shake up the power in the house like never before – a houseguest can go from zero to hero – or vice versa – every week!"
Now Amanda's position as a realtor is being questioned due to an inactive real estate license. However, without an official statement or an understanding of how the real estate world works, it's hard to say if she has or hasn't been fired since appearing on Big Brother.
In the diary room, Amanda once said, "I'd say on top of Aaryn being a raging bitch, she's very naive and sheltered, and she makes comments that are completely inappropriate where she makes fun of other people for what they look like and their ethnicity," adding, "I think it's going to hurt her a lot — in the game and outside the game."
Don't get me wrong, Amanda is right, everything she says about Aaryn is dead on. However, she is also a hypocrite, and the video evidence (for non feed watchers) is finally on YouTube.
On the video, Amanda says about Candice Stewart, "She wore my f–king headband and didn't ask. She took it off your f–king head and put it on her greasy-ass, nappy-hair head." Y'all, it gets worse, much worse. Amanda is a mean, unscrupulous person.
Are you all ready for the longest season ever of Big Brother? Big Brother 15 premieres in a little less than one week. This season's houseguests will endure two new weekly twists designed to shake up the game from day one.
First, three Big Brother houseguests will be nominated for eviction instead of two. More hamsters on the block most likely means more paranoia and drama surrounding nominations. So far – I like it.
Second, Big Brother fans will be asked to vote for the houseguest who they feel is playing the best game, and the winner of that vote will be declared the Big Brother MVP. The MVP will get a special power that impacts the game.
“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies," said Executive Producer Allison Grodner. "With America rewarding good game play, it doesn't pay to be a floater this summer."
Big Brother 14 features 12 new houseguests, each hoping to be the next big reality TV star and $500,000 richer. The CBS summer hit premieres Thursday, July 12 at 9 pm ET.
It wouldn’t be Big Brother without twists, right? The four “huge surprises” are actually four returning houseguests.
CBS explains, “In a series first, four of the most successful players to ever enter the BIG BROTHER house, will return to play their own game and for their own separate prize. The identities of the four returning players and details surrounding their mission inside the house will be revealed during the season premiere.”
Executive producer Allison Grodner guarantees that none of these players are from last season, which also included past contestants. This means no Rachel!!
According to TMZ, some deranged fans have decided to start sending death threats to the family of Shelly Moore. While Shelly wasn’t the one who nominated fan favorite Jeff or ultimately voted him out after the tie, she did betray her alliance with Big Jeff by voting for him.
Sources close to Shelly reveal her family has received multiple phone calls from people threatening violence and even making threats against her 8-year-old daughter. Disgusting.
The threats are not ending with Shelly’s family as her employer has also been receiving harassing phone calls from fans demanding they fire her because of the way she voted on the show.
Shelly’s family is reportedly taking the threats very seriously and are preparing to get the FBI involved. Good. Now I’m no fan of Sneaky Snake Shelly but threatening her family or anyone for that matter is beyond deranged.
Big Brother’s Executive Producer Allison Grodner also spoke out via twitter to condemn the threats: “No matter how much you dislike an HG, this is wrong! True BB fans do not try to ruin lives. Please stop!”
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS NEWS? IS SHELLY YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BB HG?
CBS has now unveiled the cast of the best reality show ever hit reality show Big Brother. The 13 houseguests that will be taking part in the 12th season of what CBS is dubbing the “Summer of Sabotage,” include a model, a bartender, and a chemistry graduate student who is also a VIP cocktail waitress.
But what everyone wants to know is what is the big twist this season? Well according to executive producer Allison Grodner, a mole has been planted among the houseguests to do the viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives during this season which debuts July 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
The mole, who will be revealed to viewers during the July 15 episode, is being called the Saboteur and isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 grand prize.
“For the first time ever, we have someone in the house who, in a way, is playing their own game,” said Grodner, who stressed that the operative is not an actor but a real person who was picked alongside everyone else. “They’re playing for a cash prize, if they make it a certain amount of time in the house. If they don’t last, they’re out, and their cover is blown.”
The Saboteur is similar to season 8’s introduction of “America’s Player,” which allowed one contestant, Eric Stein, to complete viewer-voted tasks for cash, unbeknownst to his house mates. The main difference this time however is that the cast will be made aware of the saboteur’s existence beforehand.
