Big Brother alumni came together this weekend to support a great cause in Reality Rally, a breast cancer fundraiser event. The annual event brings together a LOT of reality stars including a huge bunch of Big Brother stars that include all those familiar faces you see in the picture above.
Check out these pictures shared by some of our favorite former HGs and see who all made it to the event. For a little extra drama, remember this was the event that declined participation by GinaMarie and Amanda. These photos are like a trip down Big Brother memory lane including the original Big Brother winner, Eddie McGee!
Update: More pics added from recent HG shares.

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.

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?
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:
The rumors are true, I'm expecting! Due in October! Thanks BB fans for being such great sports! I just love messing with you :) #Pregnant

Are you sad or relieved that Janelle won’t be part of Big Brother 16 this summer?
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!
Over the weekend former Big Brother HouseGuests Judd Daugherty, Jessie Kowalski, Jeremy McGuire, GinaMarie Zimmerman, and Aaryn Gries came together in Texas for some fun in the sun. Looks like the BB15 gang was off on adventures playing a game, doing some day drinking (and night drinking), and even some fire walking across the bonfire. Naturally.
The HGs were definitely having a fun time together and didn’t have to wait on Big Brother for a booze delivery of mismatched beer cans. One of the funnier bits shared was Jeremy and Aaryn posing with a bottle of wine and the caption of Amanda’s “check their teeth” comment.
Juddsie fans will be excited as well to see their reunion which included cuddling and oh my, even a kiss between Judd and Jessie.
Whatever else went on that weekend it sure left these former HGs exhausted as the shared pictures trailed off and they headed back to the airport.

Update: Lucky you if you were late because Kassting has extended the app deadline to April 25, 2014!
With the June 25, 2014 start date for BB16 approaching quickly the casting team is moving just as fast to pull together this season’s houseguests.
— Robyn Kass (@Kassting) March 27, 2014
Readers have asked if casting events after April 4th would still count since that’s the online deadline. Yes, of course, they wouldn’t be holding open-call events if they weren’t able to cast those applicants.
BB Hopefuls often wonder which way is better: online or in-person? It’s all about personal preference. BB12′s Matt Hoffman wrote an extensive guide on getting cast and he highly recommends doing the online approach so you have complete control over your application video. Meanwhile last season’s HGs Andy Herren and Helen Kim were both cast after attending the Chicago open-call. So both methods can be very successful, but do not do both. Pick one or the other.
There is no need to submit an online application and attend a Big Brother casting event. Nor should you attend multiple events or submit several online applications. You run the risk of annoying the casting team and that’s probably not going to help your chances.
Best of luck to everyone who applies for Big Brother 16! We can’t wait to meet this season’s cast when the series returns for another early premiere on CBS!
