This past weekend former Big Brother Houseguests came together for the Toys For Tots charity to help raise attention for the organization’s efforts to collect donations and toys for Christmas. The organization is run by the US Marine Corps Reserve, founded in 1947, and distributes toys to children who might otherwise face a giftless Christmas. So yeah, they’re pretty great and we think these HGs are too for doing this.
There were a lot of familiar Big Brother faces who traveled to the event this weekend including Elissa Slater, Judd Daugherty, Jessie Kowalski, Kara Monaco, Joe Arvin, Shane Meaney, Adam Poch, Michelle Costa, and Michael “Cowboy” Ellis. There may have been even more and I’ll update that list if I discover anyone left off.
Big Brother HGs were definitely enjoying the opportunity to get back together and meeting some of the other alumni for the first time. It’s always fun to see the seasons mingle and make new friends and reunite old ones as well.
There’s still time to donate locally for Toys For Tots or you can donate online through their official website here. Lots of good opportunities to help out there!

It’s hard to imagine McCrae Olson without his scruffy, signature look and his Big Brother fans can rest easy that even after he took a pair of scissors to his shaggy top this weekend but managed keep most of his locks intact. Mostly.
Sure, he didn’t end up taking that much off, but it’s definitely shorter and a different look. Of course him being vertical instead of laying in that corner bed is also a new look, so maybe change is good here.
What do you think of McCrae’s new haircut? Should he take even more off the top or let it grow back out to it’s full BB15 glory? Sound off in the comments below and check out all the pics to see how it turned out!
We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed their holiday with family and friends. Many of the Big Brother houseguests were doing just that shared pictures of their own Thanksgiving.
Judd was relaxing with his family, Helen showed off some fun T-day costumes with her boys, and even Jordan had some company waiting for the turkey to finish cooking. Then you’ve also got Jessie relaxing after a feast, Candice out at the National American Miss Pageant in California, and Aaryn enjoying a drink with her Thanksgiving. Even McCranda got together for the holiday on a vacation trip with her big family.
Looks like everyone was having a great Thanksgiving and we hope you did too!
Think you could be the next BB winner? Then get ready for Big Brother 16 and apply now to be a HG in 2014! Open casting events start in the spring, but you can apply online right now. Best of luck!
Big Brother veterans Brendon and Rachel just can’t seem to get enough of the Reality TV life on CBS. They’ve appeared on two seasons of Big Brother, season 20 of The Amazing Race, multiple episodes of The Bold & The Beautiful, and now the couple is set for yet another round on The Amazing Race Season 24!
The cast for the currently filming season has yet to be officially announced, but Big Brother’s Rachel tweeted a photo of her and her husband Brendon in what appears to be their traveling gear and ready for another go around the world.
Last week spoiler source Miss Cleo caught this photo apparently tweeted by Rachel before it was removed. Looks like Rachel might have had a change of mind after posting the image revealing the pair on the go.
Since then Miss Cleo has added another photo of the Big Brother duo on a trip through China and even a video clip of Brendon completing a task, impressively so, I might add. We’ll keep watching for more spoilers and pictures from the couple as they continue to compete. Do you think they can pull off the win this time?
The McCrae Olson and Amanda Zuckerman showmance turned romance survived the bulk of Big Brother 15 this summer, but could it last outside the house and across a great divide? Readers have asked and so we checked. Turns out McCranda are still keeping it together as a couple.
McCrae and Amanda have spent a lot of time together since leaving the BB15 house mid-September. They’ve gone on road trips, hung out with other Big Brother HGs, and manage to keep catching up to spend time together. Amanda announced on Twitter this week that McCrae was back in town for even more fun together as a couple.
Who knows where their relationship will take them next (the next Big Brother couple to travel to Australia perhaps?), but we’re impressed they’ve made it this far. Most BB showmances fizzle and pop once outside the confines of the house. Heck, even engagements don’t make it! So congrats to McCrae and Amanda and best of luck in their adventures.
Check out the gallery below of McCranda pics they’ve shared:
Update: More pictures added from their get-together this week.
When I first heard Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd were traveling to Australia I figured this was another CBS adventure they were off enjoying. Turns out the Big Brother fan favorite couple was heading down under for pleasure but it wasn’t even on their dime!
Jeff and Jordan scored a pair of tickets to Australia earlier this year when The Ellen Show pulled an Oprah-style giveaway and handed every audience member a ticket on Qantas to the land of Vegemite. Here’s a pic of JeJo in the crowd. The couple had one year to trade in their tickets for a seat and this weekend they did just that. Lucky pair!
Jeff joked on Twitter, “put another shrimp on the barbie” as he prepared for their trip while Jordan announced on Twitter this Sunday:
Leaving for Australia today w/@jeffschroeder23..don't know what to expect but excited. ✈
— Jordan Lloyd (@BBJordanLloyd) November 10, 2013
Our first signs of safe arrival came earlier today when Jeff tweeted pictures of the couple at Sydney’s famous Opera House plus another shot of them at the Taronga zoo where they posed with a sleepy koala. Looks like they’re having fun!
Update: We’ve got more pics. Looks like they’re enjoying the Australian beaches!
We’re sure there will be lots more pictures to come from JeJo so we’ll keep a watch and share them as they travel through Australia!
