Big Brother 13 Premiere Date Announced

| April 1, 2011 at 12:20 PM EST

Update: Oh Julie Chen and that trusting smile. You fooled us! Despite her previous claims that the Big Brother 13 premiere would be July 6th, it’s actually Thursday, July 7th at 9PM.

Big Brother 13 might have been officially confirmed months ago, but it’s always nice to have a start date. Lucky for us, Julie Chen came to the rescue with the exciting news that Big Brother would return on Wednesday, July 6th Thursday, July 7th 2011!

Just like past seasons, BB13 will run three nights a week on CBS (I’d guess it’ll be Sun/Wed/Thur like last season), will feature a diverse cast, and lots of sunbathing-worthy bodies as eye candy. We wouldn’t want it any other way.

There’s still time to audition to be part of this season’s cast. If you’re interested be sure to check the full list of casting events then grab your BB13 application and get going! Auditions start on Saturday, April 2nd and run at least through May 7th, though more dates are being added almost daily so keep checking.

Don’t forget to join us on Facebook to get the latest preseason news and be ready when the Early Bird Discount on the live feeds is announced again.

What part of Big Brother are you most anxious to see again?

Update: Big Brother Access has confirmed show nights for Big Brother 13 will be Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Big Brother 13 Interview: Robyn Kass, Big Brother Casting Director

| March 1, 2011 at 6:00 AM EST

Every Big Brother preseason we’re flooded with auditioning questions on how to apply, nail the audition, and end up in the BB House. While I’d consider myself quite the Big Brother connoisseur and a dedicated fan since the first season I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to casting the best reality show evah, I only know what I’ve gleaned from those more adventurous than me. So, armed with a stack of the most often asked casting questions and my own curiosities of what goes on behind the curtain, I turned to Big Brother Casting Director Robyn Kass of Kassting Inc., who graciously agreed to be interviewed and share her unmatched insight.

Robyn Kass has lead the casting for Big Brother for the past decade since Big Brother 2 along with 26 other reality shows including Survivor, The Bachelor, and The Bachelorette. Having earned her first casting gig with Big Brother in 2001 it’s easy to see Robyn’s professional and personal interests shine through when it comes to making sure each season has the very best Houseguests possible.

So if you’re planning on filling out that Big Brother 13 application, submitting your audition video, and even attending every casting event in your area, then read on to find out everything you should know going in to the casting process.

Robyn Kass on making your Big Brother audition the best it can be:

Big Brother Network: What tends to grab your attention the most in an audition?

Robyn Kass, Kassting Inc.: It’s pretty easy to tell when someone is trying too hard. It’s difficult to explain, but we can tell if you’ve rehearsed what you’re gonna say. Don’t do it. Come in fresh minded, but willing to open up and talk. If we ask you a question, give explanations and stories to back up what you’ve said. We like examples…. if you say “I’m controversial” our next question will probably be “great, give us an example of being controversial….” that’s when there’s usually a LONG pause. Don’t say things if you can’t back it up.

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.
