The Big Brother 17 cast reveal gave us just fourteen new faces this season leaving us short of the regularly anticipated sixteen players, but did CBS just reveal two more on their way to join the BB17 Houseguests?
In a new promo video from CBS we get to see the 14 HGs introduce themselves and briefly reveal some game plans. Each HG writes a short message on a Post-it note that’s added to a frame at the very end. So why are there 16 messages from just 14 cast members? Hmm.
After meeting eight of the original fourteen Houseguests on Wednesday we’ll get the rest of them, but why are there only six left to go in? Well I’m guessing that’s not what’s going to happen.
Last night on the Big Brother 17 premiere host Julie Chen announced that there’d be not one, not two, but three adventurous twists awaiting the new Big Brother cast this summer. Fans old and new are likely to recognize what we’ve seen so far, but more is around the corner.
Only two of the season’s three twists were truly revealed as the third, a “BB Takeover,” will be an ongoing mystery all summer, but what about the other two? Both the Twin Twist and Battle of the Block are recycled ideas in a season that’s going to have a lot going on.
Julie Chen didn’t confirm which Houseguest would be part of the Big Brother 17 Twin Twist during tonight’s premiere, but since we already knew Liz Nolan has an identical twin while Shelli Poole has a fraternal twin, the choice seems obvious. But just how identical are the Nolan sisters?
Julie also didn’t mention they’ve done this exact same twist before during Season 5, but this is familiar ground for many super fans. A quick look at the preseason official cast photo of Liz and the bikini poolside “game on” photo of who appears to be Liz’s twin, Julia, and I don’t see there being a chance that it’s a different combo of Houseguest and twin. If you notice the haircut difference then you know they did that between Tuesday that weekend. I strongly believe it’s these two.
Here we go! Big Brother 17 has arrived with its two-night premiere and we’re live recapping the whole event right here with you as we officially meet our new Houseguests in action and see them head inside the house. Our nearly 100 days of fun starts now!
As always our host is Julie Chen and she’s going to walk us through the house and right on to the stage where the show kicks off and the new Houseguests gather before the front door. “But first,” we need to see them get their special Big Brother key.
CBS brought in three of its daytime soap actors to help out on the test run of tonight’s Big Brother HoH comp, so these are not actual Houseguests. Most of the set was covered up but we could see a few angles that suggest a Hollywood movie premiere theme.
