Big Brother Casting Director Robyn Kass has released a funny and informative video filled with casting tips and cameos. For those serious about getting inside the BB17 house this summer this is a must-watch as we close in on the 2014 casting season.
Robyn runs down the list of what to do and what to not do in your submission video. We’ve broken out Robyn’s top Big Brother 17 casting tips here so you can prepare and be ready to do your best.
Donny took to Twitter asking his fans if he was due for a close shave and a new profile or if it’d be best to hang on this neck warmer. So far the results have been overwhelmingly one sided.
Is it time to shave my beard off? Retweet if I should keep it a while longer or favorite if I should shave it off.
— Donny Thompson (@DonnyThompsonBB) January 30, 2015
The results so far has Donny’s followers supporting the move to “Shear The Beard” at more than a 4:1 rate over keeping it around much longer. Some Big Brother fans have even suggested Donny go for the trim as a charity fundraiser which could tie in nicely with his “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” event.
What do you think? Should we ‘Fear It’ or ‘Shear It’? Vote in our poll below, take a walk down memory lane with Donny and his wild beard, and share your thoughts.
Derrick Levasseur, winner of Big Brother 16, not only attended the World MMA Awards this weekend, but also had the opportunity to present an award all before traveling to Phoenix for another event. It ain’t easy being a top dog in the Big Brother world!
As part of the 7th annual World MMA Awards show, Derrick traveled out to Las Vegas where he caught up with Big Brother casting director Robyn Kass. Kass, an avid MMA fan, joined Derrick out to the event where he presented “Knockout of the Year” with Daniel Cormier.
What would a trip to Vegas be without some partying and all the better to do it with another famous name from the Big Brother world, James Rhine (BB6 & BB7). Derrick thanked James for showing him around for the night and the two even shared a good joke later following some misdirected texts.
After wrapping up his presentation and partying duties in Vegas, Derrick flew out to Phoenix where he attended the All In poker tournament and watched the game with pro poker player, Phil Hellmuth.
We’ve enjoyed checking up on the Big Brother 16 Houseguests in the off-season and they’ve enjoyed sharing lots of fun photos of their adventures and get-togethers. Here’s the latest on what the Big Brother HGs have been up to in January & shared online through Twitter & Instagram.
January was a busy month for a lot of the Houseguests with some surviving the cold and others staying far, far away from it. We found Derrick out playing in the snow with his daughter Tenley while his former ally, Cody, was cozying up with Brittany. Did those two finally go on a date??
Speaking of dating, Caleb and his new girlfriend Ashley Jay were showing off the fruits of their gym efforts and spending time together. Caleb also just announced that he had been picked up as a sponsored athlete with “Advanced Nutrition Systems 24/7″ so kudos to him on that.
Back stateside, Hayden, sans Nicole, hung out with Devin and Amber when they went to support Paola when she was DJ’ing. Amber was busy too with an appearance on America’s Funniest Videos and more importantly, hanging out with J-U Double D for lunch. Okay, the latter might not be as important as being on TV, but it’s up there, right?
Check out the Big Brother photos below and see what some of the BB16 HGs were up to this month.
Update: Our long national nightmare is over and the panicked public can rest now. I found more photos of HGs who attended Frankie’s show. But seriously, if you’re going to find it worthwhile to freak out over photos that you’ve found, but I didn’t, then at least tell me where they are since it should be a passing thought that they weren’t included because I didn’t see them. Sheesh.

Following up the previous season would be no easy task, but Big Brother 8 offered up an interesting twist, although similar to a previous year, and a very effective and polarizing mix of personalities.
Big Brother 8 featured a total of 14 Houseguests with a “worst enemies” twist that worked by introducing 11 main HGs on the doorstep of Big Brother with 4 more HGs hidden away upstairs as a surprise. Those secret additions were half of a past feuding pair that wouldn’t be anxious to be reunited, but they were also a chance to turn the corner and work with a known quantity. As we learned by the end of the season, working together instead of against each other turned out to be the right move. That wasn’t the only twist, but more on that later.
Those 11 Houseguests and 3 additional cast members included Amber Siyavus, Carol Journey, Daniele Donato, “Evel” Dick Donato, Dustin Erikstrup, Eric Stein, Jameka Cameron, Jen Johnson, Jessica Hughbanks, Joe Barber, Kail Harbrick, Mike Dutz, Nick Starcevic, and Zach Swerdzewski.
Out of that list the “hidden” HGs were Evel Dick, Dustin, and Jessica. Evel was paired with his estranged daughter, Daniele. Dustin with his former boyfriend Joe, and Jessica was a former bff turned rival with Carol.
Soon the main HGs are settled in and doing their meet and greet which gives us lots of insight through side discussions in the DR. Daniele tells us that she’s actually only 20, but turning 21 in a few months. Jen doesn’t find any of the guys good looking while Carol thinks Jen is shallow and superficial. Yeah, that seems about right.
Big Brother’s fan favorite Britney Haynes shared very exciting news last week with a surprise announcement of the birth of a baby girl this past Thursday.
Britney shared just one photo of her newborn and hasn’t mentioned the little girl’s name just yet (which I may have missed), but considering how cute Britney and Tilly have been together we can’t wait for her to share even more photos and details. See their first photo together:
Speaking of great photos of Britney and Tilly, here are a few more of her latest from Instagram:
Congratulations again to the expanding family! You can share your congratulations and follow Britney for more updates on Twitter.
