First off, no new news yet on the reveal of Big Brother 10 cast details. That should happen in just a week, officially on Wednesday, July 9th, but I think we’ll catch the pics and bios a few days earlier. Go ahead and get signed up for the email alerts (click here) and that information will be sent to you when as soon as it is released across the interwebs.
On to more exciting news, there are big changes ahead for Big Brother 10 live feeds. First up is the return of the discounts on the feeds. Superpass informed me that I’ll be able to offer up a discount of $2/month for our readers who sign up either before July 13th (the launch of Big Brother 10) or those who sign up for the quarterly plan. Buying all three months of the feeds up front nets you a $5 discount ($40 versus $45). The alternative method, signing up before the start of the season, will get you a $6 discount ($39 versus $45). They’re both really close in savings and offer a 11% and 13% discount, respectively.
Updated Update: RN just informed me that everything is back on with the Early Bird offer. Sign up now to save $2/month.
RealNetworks just emailed that they’re having technical difficulties with the Early Bird offer.

Second is the news that Evel Dick from Big Brother 8 will be hosting a pre-eviction live show. This is a great alternative to the trivia or hamster/water tunnel views we’ve had in the past. He shared the details on his MySpace page:
Last season was such an overwhelming success with the things I did for Real Player Super Pass, that we have decided to expand my roll with them. So, every Wed. when the feeds normally go down because the live show takes place that day. Yes, the eviction day is Wed. this year. So, when the feeds go down at 3pm on the west coast and 6pm on the east coast… You will be getting programming this season instead of just a screen saver…
Evel goes on to explain that everyone can watch the first two shows, which commence on July 16th, but after that you’ll have to be signed up for the live feeds to keep enjoying his shows. I’m pretty excited about this one and am surprised that it took Real/CBS so long to put something like this in place. Well done to everyone involved, it’ll be a great addition to the season.
Any plans to tune into Evel’s online show? Don’t forget to get signed up to receive the free Big Brother updates you’ll get an email with the casting info as soon as it is released. Click here to sign-up for updates.
