Come Back Next Summer For Big Brother 16
"I can't believe we're on CBS, CBS is supposed to be too good for this." -Amy Crews

Our Other Brother is On! Big Brother Canada Has Begun!

The second season of Big Brother started on March 5th!  Last year's inaugural season was excellent, I liked it better than BBUSA, it seemed faster paced and the HGs were way better.  This year they're getting a brand new house because they lost the lease on the building the first the first house was built in, but still they just keep re-painting the old CBS house, but I digress...  It's not as easy to watch Big Brother Canada in the USA as we would hope.  The feeds are "geo-blocked," but we expect to have a fairly simple solution for that, and the feeds are Free!  The show airs in Canada on the Slice Channel, here in the lower 48, you have to wait until the next day to see it on line. I still feel it's worth the extra effort, and I have a completely separate Big Brother Canada page for  daily coverage, just like BBUSA.

InsideTV Podcast: Rachel and Brendon compare 'Big Brother' and 'Amazing Race' February 24, 2014 By Dalton Ross @ Entertainment Weekly Inside TV

I don’t know if there will be any life vests on this season of The Amazing Race, but if so, floaters better grab them. That’s because reality royalty returns tonight when husband-and-wife team Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly take their second tour on The Amazing Race when season 24 of the reality show premieres on CBS. But how does racing around the world at breakneck speed compare with backstabbing house guests in the backyard on the show that first made Brenchel famous, Big Brother? We asked the couple when they called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105). - Read More -

Big Brother 16 an All-Stars Season? February 13, 2014 According to multiple reports, Big Brother 16 will NOT be an All-Star edition. These "reports" on other web sites are not based on any official word from CBS, just an assumption that since Robyn Kass is auditioning new houseguests, there will not be any former HGs in the house.  The assumption is very plausible as in the last few seasons there were very few "stars" that the viewers would want to see again, and favorites from early seasons, like Dr. Will have moved on.  However, the final decision is made by CBS, and after BB14 was cast, CBS felt the cast needed for be fortified with some former "Stars."

Last season had very good ratings despite (or perhaps because of) all the controversy, so you never know what they're doing until the show begins.  This season's theme could be: "Boobs, Bigots and Bedlam."


'Big Brother’ GinaMarie tweets ‘it just hurts’ over Nick Uhas YouTube video February 12, 2014, by Cindy Adams, Tabloid Headlines @ Examiner.com Even though “Big Brother 15” ended months ago, the drama continues between former housemates. On Feb. 11, 2014, GinaMarie Zimmerman, who was the second-place winner on the CBS reality show, tweeted her feelings were hurt after viewing a Reality TV Awards YouTube video that appears to be mocking her adoration of ex-fellow house guest, Nick Uhas, who also appears in the clip.

On Tuesday, GinaMarie tweeted, “i don’t understand some people. I mean u care about some1 so much, they just s*** on u, laugh & make fun of how u feel, its just makes me sick.”

For a complete list of Eligibility Requirements.

Helpful Hints:

Robyn offers some helpful tips when auditioning:
  1. Know the show you’re auditioning for before you make the tape. Make sure the tape is specific for Big Brother.  [ ed: Not familiar with Big Brother? It seems like they try to mix in a few HGs that aren't you're average "super-fans" in the hopes they'll bring in a fresh perspective on playing the game, however you show still watch a few seasons from The Big Brother Archive so you know what you're getting yourself into, it can get pretty hardcore. -Morty]
  2. Take a little time preparing for the tape. Know what you want to say. Know what you want to portray when you make your tape.
  3. Don’t spend too much time stressing over what you’re going to say. You want it natural. You want it to flow.
  4. Look your best and have some enthusiasm for the project.
  5. Make your video in a place where you can be loud and talk freely.
  6. Always play back your video and watch it a couple of times before submitting it. Does it look how you want it to look?
  7. No need to offer special advice or ideas on how you’d improve the show.
  8. Don’t use these clichés:
    • I will boost your ratings.
    • I can be the sweetest girl, but then I can be the biggest bitch.
    • America’s going to love me or hate me.
    • I am the next Dr. Will.
  9. Most of all: Have fun! No regrets. Good luck!

 The submission deadline is TBD.

Please check the "Open Call" page to see if there is an Open Call Casting in a city near you. If you are technically challenged, this is the way to go! These are reviewed as they are received and considered for the season that they are casting at the time.

Former Big Brother Contestant Says Cast Should Take Responsibility For Controversial Season [October 10, 2013] by staff @ 10tv.com

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A former contestant on the CBS reality show Big Brother says some of his former cast mates should offer apologies for a season plagued by controversial race comments.

"If they really want to give themselves a moral boost, they will go out of their way and make it public through an apology," said Columbus native Nick Uhas. "Or they can own it and say, 'This is what I said, and it made such a huge commotion in the media, I can now say this is actually a problem in the United States.' They can address it now because people are watching and that would be the most responsible way to do it."

Uhas, who grew up in Hilliard and graduated from the Ohio State University, was voted out of the Big Brother house at the end of the second week.

Despite his short time in the house, he says his social media following has grown rapidly despite the controversial season. - Read More -

"Big Brother" contestant Aaryn Gries is finally coming clean, admitting she talks like a racist ... but she insists it doesn't make her one.

Gries tells TMZ she's been making racial jokes for years ... but had no idea they were offensive because "no one had expressed that I was taken that way."

Gries says she wishes someone had warned her before going into the BB house ... that making these "jokes" on national TV would paint her as a big ol' racist.

"I am not a racist," she says, adding, "Sometimes you can say mindless things that will haunt you." - Read More -

Big Brother 15: Backyard Interview With Amanda Zuckerman September 23, 2013 By: Ann Turner @ bigbrotheraccess.com Conspiracy theories ran rampant right up until the night of her eviction that Big Brother 15 cast member Amanda Zuckerman had been hand-picked by CBS producers to win the show this season. Then, abruptly, she was gone and all those conspiracies came crashing down. Well, except for those who think Amanda became such a strongly disliked player, production was just forced to give up the whole idea of trying to push her as the winner this year.

Big Brother' host Julie Chen defends not grilling GinaMarie Zimmerman and Spencer Clawson September 23, 2013 By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski @ realitytvworld.com

Big Brother host Julie Chen has explained why she didn't press GinaMarie Zimmerman and Spencer Clawson for more answers during the finale regarding the show's most controversial season yet.

Many of the fifteenth season's houseguests were caught making racial, homophobic and sexist slurs on Big Brother's 24/7 live-feed. One of the most outspoken contestants happened to be Aaryn Gries, whom Chen reprimanded and grilled earlier in the season after her eviction.

Given Zimmerman was fired from her job as a pageant coordinator for also making offensive comments -- such as referring to welfare as "n**ger insurance" -- viewers wondered why Chen arguably let her off the hook after she finished as the season's runner-up behind winner Andy Herren during the show's finale last week. - Read More -

Post-Big Brother Survival Guide September 24, 2013 by Dr. Ragan Fox @ raganfox.wordpress.com

Here are 10 things I wish I would have known after the season finale:

Post-Traumatic Stress. Feel disoriented? Overwhelmed by crowds? Forget what you’re saying in the middle of a sentence? That disorientation is part of the post-show experience and will get better as the year progresses.

One year is the new 15 minutes. The sweet, blinding aura of pseudo fame will last for about a year, less if you live in a major city like Los Angeles or New York. Big Brother notoriety’s like Velveeta. It’s cheesy, delicious, and has an expiration date. Enjoy it before it curdles. - Read More -

'Big Brother's' Aaryn Gries: 'We all make mistakes'
Big Brother' cast member asks for forgiveness for slurs made on the reality show.
September 21, 2013 By Greg Braxton @ Los Angeles Times

With the curtain drawn on the most controversial edition of CBS' reality show "Big Brother," cast member Aaryn Gries, whose ethnic and homophobic slurs made national headlines, is bracing herself to face a new reality — that many people feel she's a racist.

But the 23-year-old college student from San Marcos, Texas, who was unaware of the tempest her remarks created until emerging from the show's imposed isolation earlier this week, is determined to reverse that perception.

"I'm trying to show that I'm remorseful, and I hope that comes across because I really do feel very bad," she said in an interview with The Times. "If I don't move forward, I will be stuck in this, and it will eat me alive. I can't treat this experience as a negative. I have to take it as a positive because it's made me a better person." - Read More -

The Whole Statement from GinaMarie Zimmerman's Former Employer:
During the backyard interviews, a reporter read part of a statement from GinaMarie's former employer. Although this is old news, most fans never heard the complete statement issued by Lauren Handler, East Coast USA Pageant's national director and CEO:

After watching the live feed from the current season of CBS’s Big Brother we have been left in disbelief and shock that GinaMarie Zimmerman our employee for the past five years. could display such acts of hate and racism. The East Coast USA Pageant is an outlet for girls and women to gain self-confidence, announce their platform and most importantly celebrate who they are. We believe and teach our contestants that beauty comes from within. We celebrate the diversity of our participants as all ethnicities are beautiful. We have never known this side of GinaMarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past.

We are actually thankful that this show let us see GinaMarie for who she truly is as we would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants. It is unfortunate that her hateful words were able to be witnessed by so many thousands of Big Brother fans as they were rightfully so deeply offended. We are unable to contact her at this time but when she returns from the Big Brother house we will be terminating her employment for her unforgivable behavior. In a business where we are surrounded by beauty every day we are saddened to see something so ugly come from someone we put on a very high pedestal.

'Big Brother' Stars to Appear on 'The Bold and the Beautiful' By Sami K. Martin @ Christian Post
"Big Brother 15" star Howard Overby was evicted from the Big Brother house weeks ago but has landed a guest-starring role on his mother's favorite show, "The Bold and the Beautiful," which has made him incredibly happy. Several other "Big Brother" stars will drop in for the special episodes airing in late October.

"This is so exciting! A blessing!" Overby told TV Guide. "I got a call out of the blue from 'The Bold and the Beautiful' asking if I'd like to appear on the show. I said yes without knowing any of the particulars because I was raised in a house with a lot of females – my mom, my grandma and two older sisters – and everyone watched the CBS soaps." - Read More -
