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.
Chima Simone of Big Brother 11 is speaking out for the first time since leaving the show. BigBrotherExaminer was able to get an email from Chima explaining her side of what supposedly happened.
Our first report on this story yesterday was that Chima had quit. CBS then put out a statement claiming the producers kicked her off the show. Well Chima is now saying she did “in fact quit the show.” Her words are below -
“Yes, I did in fact quit the show, although there are reports on EW from CBS to the contrary. Big Brother would like everyone to believe I was kicked off for not following the rules, but I went to the producers repeatedly over the past couple of days wanting to leave….wanting out of that house!
As crazy as that house is, the producers NEVER want the world to think or know that we houseguests DO LEAVE when it becomes futile to stay. I lost faith in the show & my ability to remain committed to this game. All of the remaining housemates know I wanted to leave and that is why any conversation concerning me is cut in the live feed because they don’t want America to hear the truth about my voluntary departure.
Do you really believe that I would be expelled for tossing my microphone when past houseguests have only been kicked off for violence & threats of violence? You know better, as do I.
It’s better that I left. I did what was best for me in this game and that was to leave. When I chose to play & play hard the power I did earn was completely usurped by a game piece never used before in this game and my HOH reign was rendered useless. I have no regrets. As cliche’ as it sounds, until the public is a part of a human pressure cooker, then the judgements should cease.
I find it interesting that my personal attacks on Russell have been highlighted, but his attacks on me pushed under a rug. Selective portrayals? I think so. Russell did terrorize the house, especially the women in the house. Why America constantly finds men attacking women okay, yet vilifies the woman defending herself, will always confound me. But what’s done is done, now BB fans can find a new woman to hate. I didn’t sign up for what I was exposed to & I left gladly. It was the principle of the matter, the $500,000 prize be damned. That’s all for now! Take Care…’
There is a new twist in the whole Chima Simone leaving the Big Brother house saga. We reported earlier today that Chima quit the show, but CBS has now issued an official statement saying Chima was kicked off the show by the producers. The statement is below -
“Chima has been evicted by the producers from the Big Brother house for violating the rules. She will not be part of the show’s jury. Her eviction will be addressed on an upcoming broadcast of the show.”
It was assumed that Chima had quit based on her actions on Friday, and her past threats to quit the show. When the feeds came back on today, the other houseguests also seemed to be under the assumption she had quit. Can’t wait to see the footage of what really happened.
Chima Simone has officially quit Big Brother 11. The most annoying houseguest in BB history 32 years old freelance journalist from California freaked out on the live feeds last night and is no longer on the show.
The feeds were cut off for about 2 hours early this morning, Chima was no longer in the house once they came back on. There is some speculation as to what exactly happened but there are certain facts that we do know.
THE REMAINDER OF THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS AS WELL AS MORE DETAILS ON CHIMA’S QUITTING.
