Now don’t get too excited, but here’s the very first Big Brother commercial for the 2011 season! I say don’t get too excited because just like each early preseason we’re treated to a commercial full of last year’s HGs and events. So nothing new here other than a confirmation of what we already knew: Big Brother will be back on CBS and Big Brother 13 start date is July 7th. Oh, and in true BB form, all the clips are in standard-def which I expect to be true again this summer.

For those just catching up on the pending season, auditions for Big Brother 13 have wrapped and casting is in the final stages. We should hear a confirmation from Kassting Inc. in the next few weeks that the finalists have all been notified.
