The Big Brother 17 cast is narrowing down with the news today that Kassting Inc has contacted all semi-finalists and we are soon on our way to meet the new Houseguests for our preseason interviews.
If you had applied by open-call auditions or online application and were still waiting and hoping then sadly Big Brother 17 is not your season. But fret not! We hope you’ll keep applying because every season is different and they’re always looking for that right fit.
Robyn Kass shared the news earlier this afternoon confirming the BB17 roster was set:
If you were watching the Survivor finale last night then you could help but see the brand new BB17 commercial which aired several times throughout the show. Yes, the Big Brother hype machine is in full force and I couldn’t be happier about it. In just over a month the season will begin and I can’t wait.
The first commercial is full of clips from last season, as we’re used to seeing, but interestingly CBS decided to go heavy on the side of one particular HG. I’ll let you guess who, but here’s a hint: it’s not the winner nor “America’s Fav.” Matter of fact, Derrick only appears in a shared scene for a split second. Go figure. Watch the full commercial below & get ready for CBS to release more.
As for other exciting news, I can confirm that we will have our own Big Brother 17 cast interviews again for you this year! My tickets are booked and I’m ready to travel to CBS Studio City to make it happen so when it comes time to sign up for your Live Feeds Free Trial please think of us. Using our links & banners to sign up for Feeds gives us direct, financial support with no cost to you. Thank you!
Congratulations to Big Brother couple Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd. They’ve officially set a date for the wedding, but settle in because we’ve got a little wait before we check out their wedding photos.
Jeff & Jordan met on the set of Big Brother 11 back in 2009 and kicked off a long running relationship that finally shifted to an engagement last year at the Big Brother house. Where else, right? Well they won’t be getting married there, at least not according to the date they’ve planned.
Earlier this week Jeff announced via Periscope that he and Jordan would be married on October 1st… 2016! Yes, they’ve got over a year before the big event, but these take time to plan and prep so that’s not completely crazy. Meanwhile, Jordan thanked fans for their support and said she “can’t wait!”
As a new feature for CBS All Access, the online streaming service for Live Feeds and Big Brother episodes, users can now stream Big Brother content from their devices connected to Chromecast (available on Amazon: under $30). This follows CBS’s previous announcement of support for Roku devices with their streaming content giving us another way to feed our BB addiction.
If you missed the previous announcements, CBS All Access is going to be the new home for the Feeds on Big Brother 17. This generally seems to be good news primarily because the price of Feeds just dropped to $5.99/month while CBS added a stack of new features with your subscription.
We’ve asked for more details on the possibility of streaming Big Brother Live Feeds on Chromecast and Roku and will keep you updated on what will work with each of the devices. Hopefully this means we’ll be able to watch the Live Feeds on Roku or Chromecast, but we’ll have to wait and see what CBS says.
To watch Big Brother on Chromecast download the Google Cast extension for Chrome, make sure you’re on the same wireless network as your Chromecast device, and click the Cast button in the CBS video player. Voila.
All Access (Free Trial) reminds me of the SuperPass method from a few years ago with the way it is bundled in with a lot of extras. This is a year round service that has all the CBS shows, not just Big Brother, with new and old shows archived online plus All Access gives you the live TV streams from certain markets if you’re lucky enough to live there. It’s perfect for the “cord cutters” out there.
When Big Brother 17 premieres in late June, you’ll need a subscription to All Access to watch inside the house and enjoy the Big Brother Feeds. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and by Email for the latest BB17 spoilers and updates all summer long.
Big Brother Houseguests came together this past weekend to attend the wedding of BB15’s Aaryn Gries complete with plenty of pics by bridesmaid GinaMarie Zimmerman and BBCAN’s Liza Stinton who made the long trip for some fun with the extended Big Brother family.
The wedding was held in Montgomery, Texas and included invited guests Jeremy McGuire and Spencer Clawson. There didn’t seem to be an appearance by the third leg of the girls’ trio, Kaitlin Barnaby.
Big Brother 17 casting enters its final stretch as deadlines loom for both online applications and the open-call audition events. Get the details on how you can be cast on the next Big Brother this summer.
Update: Final days to submit your BB17 application! Don’t miss your chance to be a HG.
This month the bulk of remaining open call events held by Kassting Inc. will wrap up with twelve more opportunities across the country. While others could be added it seems likely we’re narrowing down on your chances to get in front of the team that will handpick the BB17 cast. Casting locations & dates.
In-person isn’t your only option either as the online applications continue to roll but that’s about to expire as well. Robyn Kass announced the deadline for online submissions is Friday,
April 24 May 15, 2015 so you’ve still got several weeks to send in your application. Online app details & links.
While having a famous sibling might not be an option for everyone to get cast, if you’ve ever thought about putting yourself out there and going for your dream of being a Big Brother Houseguest then this is your chance! Last season’s winner Derrick Levasseur said he pursued an application as a “getting older” sort of dream and boy did that work out well with the largest ever single season payday.
Do not miss your chance! Check out the remaining Big Brother 17 open call audition events list or apply online. Need tips and hints to prepare? BB12’s Matt Hoffman wrote a thoroughly detailed guide to making it on the show as a regular Joe (or Joey, just not as an ‘Alex,’ okay?).
