Big Brother 16 Casting: Application Extension Ends This Week


Big Brother host Julie Chen

The Big Brother 16 cast hopefuls have nearly all been collected up by Kassting Inc. as the open-call events are down to one final event next week and the online application window closes this Friday, April 25, 2014.

After initially setting its deadline back in early April, Big Brother’s casting team extended the deadline by several weeks giving BB16 hopefuls an extra shot at making it inside the house. Considering the audition events continued for nearly a month past the previous application deadline this move to give potential cast members more time made a lot of sense. Now we’ll have to wait and see who made the cut for the 2014 season.

The Big Brother 16 start date is set for another early season return on June 25, 2014. We’re just a couple of months away from meeting a whole new group of HouseGuests and getting to know their smiling faces and sneaky ways!

Best of luck to everyone who has applied and if you’ve been sitting on that application then do it right now! The application is very short and you can easily upload everything you need to be considered. And remember, if you are lucky enough to hear back then do not post any details or share your excitement. That’s a quick way to be disqualified from making the cut! Good luck, future Big Brother 16 HGs!

Evel Dick Shares Head Injury Photo & Worries Fans – Update: ED Resting – 2nd Update


Big Brother 13 Evel Dick

Update: Received word from a friend of ED’s that he’s resting up today. No word on his condition, but “resting” is better than the alternative.

Update 2: Evel Dick posted more updates on Twitter. He’s hurt, but going to be okay he says and a friend is going to come by and check on him. Evel posted this new photo of his injury.

Evel says he was riding his bike home when he was possibly struck by a car.

Big Brother winner Evel Dick posted news on his Twitter profile last night of a serious head injury, speculating it might have been caused by being hit by a car.

Despite pleas from fans Dick indicated he was at home rather than at the hospital for emergency medical attention where he should have been. “I probly [sic] need stitches and should be at the hospital, but I barely made it home. Man, am I gonna have a headache tomorrow,” said Evel on Twitter.

In his last update of the night ED said he wasn’t drunk, “I had 2 beers all night, no not drunk.” That’s all we’ve heard from him since the incident, but we’re anxiously awaiting some update of his safety and well-being. He might be a cantankerous Big Brother alumni, but he’s an important one and we hope he is doing okay.

You can see the picture below that Evel Dick shared of his head injury, but it is rough so skip it if you’d rather not see something of that nature.

Big Brother 16 Cast Open-Call Events – More Casting Dates Added


Julie Chen Big Brother

The open-call audition events for the new Big Brother 16 cast have begun to roll out! So far Kassting Inc. has only released a few events and they’re almost a month early, but as we see each season there end up being a lot added as things progress. Last season there were twenty six events and the year before that there were twenty seven, so expect a lot more to be announced.

For those unable to attend an audition event then you’ll want to apply online, a method recommended by at least one past HG. As we’ve heard in the past, there is no need to both apply in-person and online. Once either way is enough.

To make sure you’re ready to apply for BB16, check out Robyn Kass’s 9 Must-Know Tips before you submit your application and attend an event. You can also read Matt Hoffman’s in-depth casting guide, or Dan Gheesling’s e-book. All three of them are highly qualified to share advice on becoming the next Big Brother 15 HG.

We’ll keep an eye on the this information and update the list as more details are released. In the meantime, you can start searching for the closest city.

Janelle Pierzina Teases Big Summer Plans: Pregnant Or Big Brother 16 – Update: Janelle Responds


Big Brother fan favorite Janelle Pierzina stoked excitement Thursday with her announcement hinting at either a return to the Big Brother 16 house or another baby on the way.

Update: Janelle shared an update on this story. Scroll down for the latest.

On Thursday afternoon Janelle shared the interesting riddle on Twitter saying,

“For the last three summers I have either been pregnant or playing Big Brother. This summer will be no different!”

Oh my, oh my! What do we have here?

We’ve obviously only got two options to work with here, so which is it? Is Big Brother 16 an All-Stars season as some speculated (a theory we don’t support) or could Janelle be on her way to three-peat motherhood?

Back in January 2013 Janelle announced “Baby #2 on the way! Due in August” via Twitter so it’s certainly possible that she’s pregnant again despite being close together.

BB14 fans will remember her “trip to Greece” just before the season started that caused so much uproar and out’d her involvement in the series. This would be way, way early compared to that and far too direct, something I’d be surprised for CBS to allow.

So what do you think it is? Is Janelle pregnant with baby #3 or are we set for another All-Stars for the Big Brother 2014 season? Maybe a Fans Vs Favorites since casting events are still rolling? I’m going with the former and still expecting (hoping for?) an all-new cast on BB16. What about you?

Update: Just as we suspected, Janelle is pregnant! Congratulations to the upcoming three-peat mommy. She shared the confirmation today on Twitter and thanked her fans for playing along with her tease about possibly going back to the Big Brother house:

Are you sad or relieved that Janelle won’t be part of Big Brother 16 this summer?

McCrae Admits McCranda Showmance Was Biggest Mistake & A Game Move


Game Over, McCrae

The biggest romance to come out of Big Brother 15 was undoubtedly McCranda, sorry Judd The Studd, but now in an open letter McCrae released last week he says his relationship with Amanda was driven by his desire to get ahead in the game.

McCranda publicly announced their split the other month which initially appeared to be an amicable situation before an outburst between when McCrae didn’t include Amanda on a quick trip through Florida with Judd.

Now the pair is back in the Twitter spotlight with McCrae releasing a lengthy and very personal apology letter aimed at his former girlfriend. In it McCrae admits regret for placing money over love when he became a showmance with Amanda in a move he claims was aimed to boost his position in the game.

I now realize that I sacraficed [sic] one dream for the possibility of money, and I’ve never made such an awful decision. I threw away everything we ever had for the chance to win money.

People ask me about my biggest regret in the game and I always answer some game related answer about I shoulda [sic] did this or I shoulda [sic] did that. What I always want to tell them though is that I regret throwing away the love I had with you, just to try to better myself in the game.

McCrae goes on to describe talking with the Big Brother in-house therapist and how she assessed his remorse and regret over what he was doing with Amanda while still having feelings for someone back home. You can read the full letter here on TwitLonger.

Of course that didn’t go over particularly well with Amanda (who could blame her?). She announced “that was the letter that ended us. Thank you for sharing it with the world.”

It sounds like we can officially close the chapter on McCranda in the Big Brother book. Now who is ready for some BB16 action?! The new season is almost here!
