When Donny Thompson was evicted from Big Brother 16 we learned he had a special opportunity ahead of him: appearing on CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful,” but it turns out he won’t be alone. In fact, nearly half the cast will join Donny in a special episode.
According to TV Guide’s interview with Donny he’ll be joined by seven other BB16 HGs plus five more from past seasons. It’ll be Big Brother overload when they appear in episodes airing October 30-31, 2014. So who all will be there along with Donny? We’ll get to see Zach Rance, Nicole Franzel, Amber Borzotra, Cody Calafiore, Caleb Reynolds, Hayden Voss, and Devin Shepherd.
While that list has a lot of this summer’s HGs there are obviously quite a number of them who did not make the cut. Bold & Beautiful producer Casey Kasprzyk told TV Guide the decision was made based on “time and budget” and they would have otherwise invited more of the season’s cast.
Houseguests from past Big Brother seasons joining the BB16 crew on screen will be Elissa, Jeff & Jordan, Rachel, and Brendon. That is going to be one very, very busy episode of B&B.
We did get an early detail on what Donny’s character will be doing in his appearance. Kaspryzk teased, “We’re going to have fun with all the speculations about Donny’s ‘real’ career and it’ll involve a lot of costume changes.” Sounds like they’ll put the HGs’ paranoia of Donny’s fictional mysterious past as a super genius secret commando ninja to good use.
The episode appears to have already been filmed as Caleb was sharing photos on Friday from backstage prep including him with the other Big Brother stars set to appear. We’ll keep an eye out for when their special episode airs next month. Can’t wait to see how everyone handles their scenes.

The BB16 Houseguests haven’t slowed down since escaping the confines of Studio 18 this week with not just one celebration, but two afterparties. Now many of them are heading out to Vegas for the Wrap Party celebration starting tonight. Okay, well it looks like they went ahead and got started last night, but things officially kick off tonight at Aria’s Deuce Lounge.
Starting tonight at 9PM at The Deuce Lounge the party kicks off before rolling over to the Haze nightclub for the afterparty. No word yet on what time the Haze event starts, so be sure to check Deuce first.
Big Brother fans hoping to meet up with some of their favorites from this season and past summers are in luck. Aria is advertising that you’ll be able to meet Amber, Brittany, Donny, yes even Donny knows how to party in Vegas, and Jocasta from this season. That won’t be it though as we’re spotting a lot of familiar faces from both BBUS and BBCAN.
From past BBUS seasons I’ve spotted Judd, Jeremy, Parker, Michelle, Lawon, Howie. BBCAN has arrived with Arlie, Peter, Liza, Allison, Sarah, and Rachelle. And those were all just from who arrived Friday night, so I imagine as Saturday rolls along we’ll see lots more Big Brother alumni show up.

It was another fun night of partying from the looks of it for the Big Brother 16 Houseguests as they celebrated wins and freedom along with the company of past HGs, friends, and even some celebs.
I’ve been watching a flood of pictures on Twitter coming in from the Big Brother after party, but the best ones are showing up from Philip Alan Photography. No surprise really that his photos are some of the best ones to check out along with the HGs’ own candid pictures.
Along with other former BBUS HGs showing up to support the BB16 crew there were even BBCAN Houseguests who made the trip down to enjoy the fun. Gets me excited and ready for BBCAN3!
The Big Brother 16 has come to an end after an exciting season of highs and lows but an extremely entertaining one none the less. As we wrap up the last few parts of the summer show I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for joining us.
Coming off a tumultuous season I wasn’t sure what we’d get this time around but a mostly solid cast came together and moved things along while, for the most part, dodging issues of the past round. The twists were a mix of core game impacting and side show distractions though I’m still not sure why it’d be considered the “most twisted season ever.” All the same I appreciated all the extra content Battle of the Block and Team America gave us to discuss each week.
The drama may have been mild at times, but it was certainly there and plenty of strategic moves kept the season rolling. Along with getting to see an absolutely great player take home the win I’ll remember this season as my first chance to be part of a live eviction audience thanks to CBS’s invitation and your efforts to make us a standout in the crowd. That was an absolute dream come true for this fan.
Readership took a healthy leap up here on the site this season and I’d like to thank Branden, Adam Poch, and Judd Daugherty for contributing a season of hard work and dedicated writing to help make that happen. We truly appreciate your support by visiting us, recommending our site to your Big Brother fan friends, and especially going through us to get your Live Feed subscriptions!
With confirmation that Big Brother 17 will be here next summer plus another season ordered by CBS on top of that we’re confident that we’ve got a lot of fun left ahead of us for our favorite reality series. Luckily it’s not the only reality series we cover though and there’s a lot to do in the off-season.
Big Brother – the show we hate to love, and the show we love to hate. Every summer begins with hope that this will be the best season ever. We get so excited waiting for Julie to reveal the new design of the house, find out what the twists are gonna be, meet the cast & read / watch the preseason interviews – all leading up to the Superbowl of Reality TV – OPENING NIGHT!!! We make our picks for who we are going to root for – scour the web to find out more about these people – see how many degrees of separation between us and the new houseguests.
Then the show starts and we find ourselves staying up way too late watching the live feeds, reading recaps & previews on Big Brother Network – refreshing our browsers every 10 minutes to find out the results of the competitions / nominations. Our non-BB loving friends & family start to get sick of us talking & posting about it non-stop. Somewhere along the way – we find new HGs to root for, HGs to root against – comparing players to previous HG’s- complaining about how this season does not live up to our preseason expectations. We continue on this roller coaster for 3 months until Julie Chen finally pulls out the keys and declares a winner.
It’s our summer obsession and when it’s over – despite all the other shows on TV – we start looking forward to the next season. Now that CBS has announced instead of the usual renewal for one season, it has been renewed for 2 – and the rumors are starting that one of those seasons will be an All-Star season. I wonder how many times we will hear someone say “If (insert our favorite HGs name here) is not on All-Stars, I am not watching!” Yet, we all know the truth… YOU WILL WATCH!!!! Why? Because we are addicted to this show like no other show on TV.
BUT FIRST – lets take a look back at Season 16 – which I called “The Season of the Safe Moves.” These are just a few things about this season that I loved, and that I hated…
LOVED – the Have Not Room. We saw the effects of the ice cold room & slop week 2 when Zach had a major meltdown. Big Brother is not Survivor, the HGs get a pantry full of food, beds, shelter, etc… so when they are forced to limit what they can eat, and probably the worst sleeping conditions yet, it takes a toll pn their psyche.
HATED – the fact that they did not have to fight in a competition to see who would still have these luxuries, and who would be forced to suffer. Big Brother made such a big deal about the FitBit activity bracelets that they all had to wear, but only once was that used to determine who would be a have not. I get it – with the Battle of the Block taking up time on the show there was not enough time to do another competition, but feed watchers always complain about the HGs sleeping all day. If they knew that being lazy would force them to become Have Nots – we could have had more excitement during the day. (Especially for us East Coast viewers).
Derrick Levasseur pulled off the perfect game last night on Big Brother 16 when he was crowned the winner after 97 days of maintaining control of his game and house while avoiding ever being named as a nominee. Today I spoke with Derrick about his game, the moves he made, and what it was all like.
Matthew Boyer – Big Brother Network (BBN): Congratulations on your win. That was an impressive and well-earned victory last night.
Derrick Levasseur: Yeah, it worked out well. You know what, I trusted my boy Cody regardless of who won and it worked out pretty well.
BBN: Right there on that, your trust in Cody. Did you ever consider throwing Round 3 or were you going full steam to win that?
Derrick: Although I trusted him 110%, I was not going to throw that competition and have something go wrong because you never know in the game of Big Brother. I was absolutely trying to beat him. The questions got me a little thrown off because to be honest with you, I think the Jurors switched up a couple of their opinions to throw us off. They got me on a couple of them, but it came down to the tie-breaker and he was the closest. More power to him. Kudos to him.
BBN: At what point in the season did you say to yourself, “okay, I’ve got this. I’m going to win.”?
Derrick: I definitely saw a light. I knew what I had to do to have the best opportunity and I needed two alliance members in the F3 with me regardless of who won the Final HoH if I didn’t do it myself that they would bring me. I knew I had Cody and he didn’t know how close I was with Victoria. I also had Victoria who didn’t know how close I was with Cody. It worked out perfectly.
Caleb was really the last big move I had to make and at that point was when I really knew my chances of being in the F2 were almost 100%.
BBN: Looking at those Jury votes, 7-2. What do you think cost you those two votes?
