That’s it. The Big Brother 11 application period has closed. All BB11 applications were due in (or at least postmarked) by yesterday, May 4th.

In recent Big Brother seasons the casting selections have been completed within weeks after the audition phase closed. I’m expecting to hear an announcement from Kassting Inc by the end of May which lets us know that they’ve made their decisions and contacted the finalists.

Best of luck to everyone who submitted applications. While you wait patiently by the phone for the big call, be sure to register now for the Big Brother Forum, sign-up for the free Big Brother updates, and start following us on Twitter so you never miss a BB11 event all summer long.
