We’re just three days away from the premiere of Big Brother 14 and confirming the latest rumors when it comes to twists and surprises for the new season.
So far this preseason there have been a flood of theories and conspiracies as to what we’d see come July 12th. While those are fun to toss around and examine I tend to stay away from reprinting any of them until things start to take shape. With just a few more days to go things aren’t going to get any more solid than this so let’s take a look.
The “Mentors” twist has been spinning around so long that I can’t even remember when it started or perhaps when it was leaked, but the idea was that a set of former HGs would return to the game and lead a team of newbies. My first thought was a repeat of what we saw for two seasons on Survivor. It wasn’t good and I hoped Big Brother wouldn’t go there. Thankfully it looks like we’re going to get a whole different approach.
The game has begun! Big Brother 14 Houseguests have entered the house and begun the battle for the half-million dollar prize. CBS released this image late Saturday showing a small group of the new Big Brother cast entering the house’s front door.
You can see Big Brother 14‘s Kara Monaco, Joe Arvin, JoJo Spatafora, and Willie Hantz celebrating their arrival in the Big Brother 14 house. While it appears in this picture that Kara was the first to enter the game it’s important to remember past seasons. During BB12 CBS released a similar picture showing Andrew coming through the door, but it was out of order and Rachel was actually the first to arrive. This point is interesting because no “first to enter” HG has ever won Big Brother. Well, not in their own season at least since Rachel obviously came back and won the next year, but that doesn’t count.
The next time we’ll see these HGs is during Thursday’s Big Brother 14 premiere on CBS at 9PM ET/PT and then again when the Live Feeds begin that night at 1AM ET (10PM PT) along with Big Brother After Dark. If you don’t have your Live Feed account yet then there’s still time to get the Early Bird discount rate before it expires on Wednesday.
Update: CBS has released the first high-quality photo featuring the new HGs plus 4 mysterious HGs, but we already have a good idea of who those returning veterans are.
You’ve met the new Big Brother 14 cast and seen the new house design. Now you’ve just got one more thing to do before the new season begins: get your Live Feeds. In just a few days the Big Brother 14 early bird sale preseason discount price will expire. If you haven’t signed up yet for your Live Feeds then be sure to do it now.
The Early Bird sale drops the 3-month season pass price from $39.99 down to a rate of $9.99 a month, less than the price of one movie ticket. But this deal expires this Wednesday, the day before the Big Brother 14 premiere. If you wait until Thursday when the new season arrives to sign up for your Feeds account, and you know you will want your Feeds, then you’ll be paying a lot more for the exact same thing.
This season with your Big Brother Live Feed account you’ll get 24/7 access to in-house, uncensored cameras where you can watch Big Brother 14 alliances form and break, romances bud, and HGs endure endurance competitions for the power of HoH.
You’ll also get free mobile access to your Live Feeds which lets you watch on any Apple, Android, or other Flash-supported device. If you’re a social viewer then this is the only way to access SuperPass’ official chat rooms and daily live show events. There’s even the added bonus of $30 of free mp3 downloads for US customers which completely offsets the cost of your Feeds. Sign-up now and take advantage of this lower price.

Watch our quick introductory video to learn all about the HGs in 2.5 minutes:
Remember the BB14 commercial that promised the “most HGs ever”? Well obviously 12 HGs isn’t the most ever which means there will be additional HGs not included in this information. Could the “mentors” rumor be true? I only met with 12 people for the interviews and we received no details on anyone else, but we expect that info soon! Also, due to a last minute change we won’t have an interview video for one of them.
Update: CBS reveals there will be 4 returning HGs: “In a series first, four of the most successful players in Big Brother history will return to play their own game — for their own separate prize. The identities of the four returning players and details surrounding their mission inside the house will be revealed during the season premiere.”
Update 2: We’re seeing in the Twitterverse that someone with production has confirmed Rachel Reilly will NOT be one of the returning HGs. Nor will it be anyone from BB13.
Update 3: Those 4 returning HGs? “‘Four epic players — including fan favorites and winners — are coming in with their own agenda,’ teases executive producer Allison Grodner,” reports TVGuide. CBS will do a slow boil reveal to premiere night.
Update 4: Or CBS could decide to just leak the confirmation by allowing the Live Feeds to cut in early Wednesday morning and revealing the 4 returning HGs.
