Big Brother to sizzle again in Summer 2011.
Big Brother, the perennial summer reality hit, will return for its 13th edition next summer on the CBS Television Network.
“Big Brother is our summer hero,” said Jennifer Bresnan, executive vice president, alternative programming, CBS Entertainment. “Every year, our producers deliver innovative twists and turns, consistently evolving this proven franchise and engaging one of the most loyal and interactive fan bases on television and online.”
After excellent ratings pushed Big Brother above and beyond previous seasons it should come as no surprise that CBS wants to see Big Brother 13 next summer. Now if they could just move it up to this winter we’d be all set!

Hang on to your butts, Brenchel fans, because CBS isn’t done with the biggest drama inducing Big Brother 12 showmance just yet. According to Soap Opera Digest (what?), the duo that could only have been crafted up in a mad scientist’s lab will be back next month for an appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful:
BIG BROTHER 12′s Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas are appearing on Oct. 25 and 26 as a Bikini Beach waitress and bartender. The pair will be in scenes with B&B’s Hope, Liam, Bill, Katie and Amber.
Two thoughts. 1) Ragan must be rolling around on the ground laughing at Rachel’s role. 2) Isn’t Rachel all about Vegas (landlocked), but she’s a beach waitress. I’m just not convinced that I’ll believe her in the character!
Hat tip to Branden at HWHills.com for the info!
Big Brother 12 wraps up on Wednesday night with a 2-hour live finale, but we’re not going to just sit around for 9 months until Big Brother 13 (a new season has been unofficially confirmed). Oh no, we’ve got big plans to keep the fun going with our coverage of Survivor 2011 and American Idol 2011 until BB13!
Are you ready to keep the fun going all year? We are and will see you there!
I spoke to the winner of Big Brother 12 yesterday and I’ve got to say Hayden was so personable, and I really enjoyed talking to him. He is such a nice guy and my favorite interview of the season.
Ashli Rae: How does it feel to win BB 12?
Hayden Moss: It’s a great feeling. I can’t lie. I haven’t grasped it. My mind is still racing. It hasn’t hit me yet.
AR: What’s something fun you plan to buy with your money?
HM: Every time I would start thinking about what I would do with the money, I would force myself to think about something else cause I didn’t want to get let down. I want to snowboard a lot this winter. I haven’t planned on buying anything extravagant. I plan on taking snowboard trips and for me, it doesn’t get more fun than that. We’re taking that trip to Steamboat in January, Me and Lane and Enzo. I think Britney’s coming out. We’re going to have a great time.
AR: What was going through your head when Enzo was the deciding vote since you had just evicted him from the house?
HM: I was a nervous wreck. Like I’m biting my fingernails, I’m sweating, my heart was beating out of my chest. I had just evicted Enzo. Is he bitter? Not bitter? I don’t know what he’s going to do. I was nervous. I think he made the right decision.
I spoke to Lane today and got his views on winning second place in Big Brother and where he’d like to see things go with Britney.
Ashli Rae: How do you feel winning the $50,000?
Lane Elenburg: I guess as good as you can winning 50,000 but losing 500. If I was going to lose 500, I’m glad I lost it to Hayden cause he’s a great guy and he deserved it.
AR: Do you wish something could work out between you and Britney and do you think you two will stay in touch?
LE: We’ll definitely see what happens, I can’t promise anything. She is a wonderful woman. I enjoy talking to her so I know we’ll keep in touch after this.
AR: Who was the easiest person to live with and on the flipside, the hardest?
LE: It would probably be Howie the duck. No Enzo wasn’t too bad and Hayden was really easy but he was stressed too much. The hardest person would be Brenchel. Brendon and Rachel.
I spoke to Big Brother 12‘s Enzo today and got his thoughts on the brigade, not winning any money and what’s in store for him in the future.
Ashli Rae: Enzo, do you think not doing well at comps deserves criticism or credit for making it to the final 3 despite of that?
Enzo Palumbo: I think both, I definitely deserve some criticism, I definitely should have won some competitions especially when I got to the final 3. I knew my life was on the line, I knew that none of them were going to take me to the final 2, I had to win those two competitions, 2 out of those HoH’s. And then I definitely deserve praise for the way I played the house, the whole brigade, my social game. I mean I have people talking like me so you gotta be proud of that.
AR: You keep saying you’re the best at the social game in bb history, how and what did you do to play a social game?
EP: I basically just talked to everybody, felt everybody out, no one knew what I was doing the whole time. I had a brigade that I made, with the help of Matt and the other two brigade members that were in it. So basically just my words, my sayings, my character. I was never a target, not one time. I was on the block once as a pawn, no twice as a pawn, I was never a target no one ever wanted to come after me. So there’s either an intimidation factor there or I was playing the game pretty good.
AR: Speaking of Matt, what did you think of his statement that he actually created the brigade?
EP: I think everyone seen it who started it. It’s on tape. I made the name up, I gave the nicknames to everybody. It’s pretty much a done deal. I mean Hayden and Lane know who started the brigade. I’m sure Matt helped but it was my mastermind idea.
