What a difference a day makes. On Wednesday I posed my theories on when we’d get our Big Brother 10 house tour and cast reveals (read more). The very next day a flood of new information came out that I want to share with you.

First up, CBS has announced that July 9th will be the big reveal day for official press releases and details on the latest season of Big Brother. Big Brother Access received this information from CBS’ director Entertainment Communications, so it sounds pretty solid and reasonable to me. BBA also points out, just as I did, that we’ll likely get the juicy details “leaked” earlier from another reliable source like what happened in past seasons.

Moving from “sure thing” details to the rumors and spoilers section is where we can really get into the fun! On Thursday it was reported (by several sources: OBB, BBC, JU) that the semi-finalists who did not make the cut were notified by phone. Here’s the anonymous details from one near-cast member:

“I am not bitter, just disappointed. They were all awesome to me while I visited LA the first week of June. I wish the HG’s luck and I will watch wondering how I would’ve fit in. But I do think they made a mistake by not selecting me.
Yes, their was a wide range of finalists. Women in their 40’s-50’s, man in his 60’s….yes….. he was at least 60something.”

Sounds like casting may have finally taken note that much of the audience would enjoy a wider range of ages instead of “The OC” meets “Big Brother”. So if this is the case and they turn-downs were notified, then it would logically follow that the key-holders will soon be notified and sequestered. Ahh, but what about those sequestered? Any spoilers or rumors there? You betcha.

Laura LeighGet ready for your “hot girl” because that role has rumored to have been filled by a model wannabe (from the looks of it she’s well on her way) named Laura Leigh. Reality BBQ broke the story with the rumor-rific details:

“Typical BB casting will sometimes look after the finals for certain people to fill certain roles. Last year they took Sheila after finals was over to take the place of one of the HG’s ex-gf who dropped out last minute. This season they have done it again. Flying out to LA is a model named Laura Leigh. I do not know if she made the show or if she didn’t but she was brought in to interview for as a finalist in the house. By the way, she’s not a BB fan at all – never even heard of the show but wants to be on TV. ” – Anonymous

Of course she’s never heard of the show. They always say that. Sheila kept that one going for weeks before revealing she was well schooled on the matter. I wouldn’t be surprised if that wasn’t the case here as well. Either way, it looks like Laura Leigh would make an excellent addition to the backyard tanning sessions and pool parties. Anyone else ready to get back on those uncensored live feeds?
