Cast has been released:

http://www.cbs.com/primetime/big_brother/


Have to look at the videos at home tonight but can see some early favs. Suppose to be a couple of "uber fans" in the mix so it will be interesting to see how they fare against the mactors.

And we'll know on week two who the person is that the producers have picked to be working against the house ie another "america's player" like Eric was a few seasons ago.

Oh, read on another site that the 14th person bailed at the last minute and there wasn't time to bring in replacement so that's why there is only 13 players this time.

They are all from FL, IL, AR, and CA. WTF? And too many of them look alike... do we have another secret teams thing going on? Relatives?

I haven't read anything about a relative or pre-existing relationship twist though I guess TPTB could announce that next week. I just think casting got lazy and went for people from the same casting calls.

So far the only twist that has been announced is the "Summer of Sabotage" where an unknown player is going to be doing the bidding of America and trying to mess with the game. Like Eric, they will be rewarded with a cash prize every time they are able to pull something off. I guess TPTB will "fix" things to make sure this person is around for awhile.

*runs into thread*

Wheee:rollin: can't wait. I haven't been particularly happy with the outcomes in recent seasons, but always enjoy the ride!

Too darn busy right now to fully examine the bios, but will asap.

So I was reading some of the contestant threads over at Sucks and it seems like Matt was on a season of "Average Joe" as one of the Joes.

Makes him a possible saboteur since he has previous reality tv experience ie he'll be pretty comfortable on camera and use to taking direction from TPTB.

I am so excited for this.. I've been without a TV show to watch since all of them ended at the beginning of May.

Took a quick look at the cast bios, looks like they've got a few good potentials here. They asked a question about which players from past seasons they liked/hated the most.. I believe all of them gave specific people, so I'm hoping we don't get any mactor TV whores who haven't seen the show before.

Interesting to note that they have the profiles of 13 people up. There was a magazine spread posted over on Sucks that said there were going to be 14 houseguests this season. Perhaps the saboteur's identity will remain a mystery until the first broadcast. Or perhaps it was just a typo :lol:

Apparently they intended to have 14 HGs but one bowed out due to cold feet (http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2010/06/big-brother-12-meet-your-13-contestants.html).

My first thought after checking out the male cast members was, "are they all the same guy???" Plus it's a very WHITE cast. :yawn:


Oh, read on another site that the 14th person bailed at the last minute and there wasn't time to bring in replacement so that's why there is only 13 players this time.

:confused: + :mad:

Honestly. Surely they must plan for something like this. I would have thought that 20 people would have been sequestered with all of them knowing that only 14 would make it on the show. And if someone gets ill, has an emergency back home, or "gets cold feet" (:rolleyes: x infinity), then no problem, there's six back-up contestants.

And whoever backed out, I think they're a big LOSER when there are so many people out there who would want the opportunity they were given.


Canadians watch it too :cheer2:

For sure, eh? :40beers:
