    Big Brother US--Season 16! Premieres June 25, 2014

    Well its almost that time again for another season of "Big Brother". Premiere date is next Wednesday, June 25 from 8-9pm, EST. Thursday's live eviction show will begin June 26 from 9-10pm, EST (first eviction is July 3rd) and Sunday's show will begin airing June 29th from 8-9pm.

    As usual, the thread will be full of live feed stuff so if you don't want to know stuff ahead of the CBS show, than this isn't the place for you.

    I enjoyed watching the feeds last summer but am not sure if I'm going to buy them or not this season. I guess I need to see what the cast is like first before committing.

    Normally I'm all over this, but I'm not sure I can commit the time to really follow this again this summer. I watch a bit of Big Brother Canada in the spring - what I saw was much better than the US version in terms of production quality and challenges - but I couldn't keep up with 3 shows a week plus their after show (which from what I saw was excellent).

    Will likely tune in to ep 1 to see what their spin is this year and if they've made any improvements (especially since BBCAN had a ton of US viewers/followers, so they've seen what it can be), and see what Hamsterwatch has to say.

    I'll probably get sucked in as per usual though.

    I never watch the live feeds, but LOVE reading the live feed reports. Can't wait to see what this summer holds.

    Unless Rachel Reily is there, then I'm out.

    As always, very excited. I will probably do what I have done the last few years and just follow online and only watch the live evictions/HOH episodes. This show is completely ruined if you stay spoiler free so why bother watching those episodes when I know everything that happened? Hope they have a good cast and that producer manipulation is at a minimum. Oh, and as always, keep the past players at home, please.

    I just checked a few of my regular sites (I know I know this is how fast this can suck me in) and there's nothing much out there other than that the house decor is log cabin (um, Canada??), and

    Big Brother without Jenny?! Noooooooo!

    I plan on watching this year, and I'm going to do a better job of keeping up with this thread. Can't wait to spend the summer in here with all of you!

    Apparently the twist is that there will be 2 HOHs and 4 nominees. I am assuming that means each HOH makes their own nominations. Then there is some kind of new competition which could put one of the HOHs in danger? Sounds complicated but I am sure it will become obvious the first week how it works.

    I'll likely do my usual - watch everything initially to see who everyone is and what's going on. Then read what everyone posts on here so I know what's REALLY going on.
    Never mess with a geocacher. We know the best places to hide a body....

    That's my tactic too.

    Cast is out. Can't bring the link over though. First glance has positive response from me but I guess I need to watch the videos to be 100 percent sure

    No retreads! I don't mind when they bring back previous players to host comps or something, or even have a role in the game, but I'm very happy to see 16 new players.

    And the "it's fixed" chatter begins - one of the contestants is some sort of performer who already has a bit of a following, but his sister is Ariana Grande (who I only recently learned is apparently a Big Deal among the younger set).

    Remember when everyone was freaking that Elissa was winning all the online votes and polls because her sister Rachel had 191,000 followers on Twitter and was getting everyone to vote for her? Ariana has nearly 16 million followers, and her first tweet about him already has about 23,000 retweets and favourites.

    Yeah, he's her half brother and is a 'youtuber'.
