The countdown is on, my fellow Big Brother fans! Big Brother 17‘s two-night premiere airs Wednesday, June 24 and Thursday, June 25. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Houseguests and announced the twist that will, no doubt, annoy my face off sooner rather than later. HAHA. I have such a love/hate relationship with Big Brother.
The twist, BB Takeover, will feature a surprise guest each week who will appear on the show to announce a new twist. Yes, a new twist every single week, which is expected to “shake up life inside the house on a weekly basis.”
“This is going to be the biggest Big Brother ever!” promised EP Rich Meehan. “Surprise guests, twists every week all summer long and, of course, Zingbot! But the houseguests better keep their focus, because Big Brother is all about relationships. Trust me, with all the twists and turns, those bonds will be more important than ever, because at the end of the week, it’s your housemates that send you packing on eviction night.” Meet the houseguests below.
It’s almost Big Brother time! CBS has released pictures of the Big Brother 17 house. Obviously, so we can see what it looks like before the new houseguests (stay tuned for that gallery) trash it and the ants move in.
The theme of the Big Brother 17 house this summer is “steel wave, a modern take on the summer beach house.” Big Brother‘s production designer Scott Storey told ETOnline, “I wanted it to be a house of steel and glass. It plays well with Big Brother and the ‘no place to hide’ concept.” New additions to the house for Season 17 include a second story metal platform, which has a clear floor, called The Bridge, an indoor hammock in the hangout room, and more cameras and microphones than ever before. See the house below.
Ariana Madix is not resting on her Vanderpump Rules laurels! The actress just landed a role in a short thriller called “Immurement,” in which she stars with actor-turned-producer (and former Big Brother villain) James Rhine.
The super-eerie movie is described in the press release as a “psychological thriller in the vein of ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘Tales From the Crypt.’”
“A woman wakes up in a bricked chamber. No windows. No doors. She has no idea how she got there, who put her there and for that matter, who she even is,” scriptwriter and independent filmmaker Colin Costello explained.
Reality stars – past and present – turned out for OK! magazine’s pre grammy party last night at Lure nightclub in L.A. Everyone from Joanna Krupa (who chopped off her long hair) to Lisa Vanderpump and a few SUR employees and many more showed up for the night out.
Kim Kardashian is currently in Australia to promote her new perfume (it smells like her specialty, oiled up plastic) while North West‘s “aunties” take her to the zoo and treat her to her first hot chocolate. Poor Kim is probably anxious to be home with her precious little girl again.
HAHAHA. Just. Kidding.
Actually, Kim is headed to India and Dubai next. North? North who?? While in India, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians fameho will move into the Bigg Boss house as “a guest to interact with the contestants.” Bigg Boss is India’s version of Big Brother. Obviously, the Bigg Boss contestants lost a challenge, and Kim Kardashian is their punishment.
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.
Everyone’s (re: mine) favorite train wreck reality show Couples Therapy will be back. Sadly Farrah Abraham won’t be part of things this year – she’s busy doing other things – but that doesn’t mean there will be any less delusional drama. Thank you VH1!
Now that Juan Pablo Galavis is officially released from his ABC contract, meaning the ex-Bachelor hasn’t been invited to do any further Bachelor-esque events, he and show girlfriend Nikki Ferrell are working through their relationship. Something tells me JP is keeping this relationship alive to keep his time in the spotlight alive…

About her acting roles, Farrah said, “I’m kind of staying closer to roles that are Christian-based.” Um, apparently, “kind” and “of” were the operative words.
No one’s favorite Teen Mom brat turned Backdoor Teen Mom star has been cast as a “crazed evangelical Christian hellbent on beating the word of God into anyone who turns a deaf ear to it” in the slasher movie Axeman 2: Overkill.
