Big Brother Cast Takes Over ‘Bold & Beautiful’ On CBS For Halloween Episodes – Update: Behind The Scenes

| October 27, 2014 at 1:30 PM EST

After Big Brother 16 ended many of the season’s Houseguests stuck around Los Angeles to take part in filming for two upcoming episodes of CBS’s “The Bold & The Beautiful.” Here is a preview of those special Halloween themed episodes before they air later this week.

Half of the BB16 cast made the cut to appear on the show including the three top-voted HGs for America’s Fav: Donny Thompson, Zach Rance, and Nicole Franzel. They were joined by Devin Shepherd, Caleb Reynolds, Hayden Voss, Amber Borzotra, and Cody Calafiore. This season wasn’t alone though as Jeff, Jordan, Rachel, Brendon, and Elissa joined in on the fun too.

In the snapshots below you can find Donny, Zach, and Caleb for their scenes but back behind them there’s even more HGs to find. I’ve spotted Cody over to the side as a boxer. There’s Nicole in her Germitard and Hayden as a hockey player. Devin is dressed up as a dad (I’m kidding) and Elissa is there too. Over at the bar I see Brendon serving while Jeff and Jordan grab a few drinks. Rachel and Amber are probably in there somewhere, but I didn’t spot them.

Update: New “behind the scenes” shots that are fun to see as Houseguests worked on their episodes.

Don’t forget to watch this Thursday and Friday (October 30th & 31st) at 1:30-2PM ET & 12:30-1PM PT to check out all their scenes as we discover who might have the chops for a future in Hollywood.

You can count on Zach dropping a Froot Loop Dingus line for his fans out there and lots of costume changes by Donny so that should be fun.

Big Brother 16 Couple Nicole Franzel & Hayden Voss Still Together & Living It Up [PHOTOS]

| October 23, 2014 at 2:00 PM EST

Nicole Franzel and Hayden Voss left the Big Brother 16 house without a half-million dollars, but they did find each other and that seems to be making the two former HGs pretty happy these days.

Hayden and Nicole are still together a month after the Big Brother season finale and it looks like they’ve been spending lots of time together. Both members of Haycole have been sharing photos and silly love notes on Twitter to one another that leaves little question to the status of their relationship.

Over the past month Haycole has caught up for fan events, like we saw a few weeks ago, and even a few dates around their hometown. Of course I guess the question is if either plans to make the other’s hometown theirs too. I imagine some hardcore Haycole fans can fill us in on that.

Check out some fun photos of Hayden and Nicole together and see what they’ve been up to since escaping Big Brother. Who thinks this cute couple is going to make it out there in the wild?

Big Brother 16′s Zach & Victoria Selling The Shredded Pink Hat

| October 16, 2014 at 11:30 AM EST

Big Brother 16 Houseguests and former adversaries Zach Rance and Victoria Rafaeli have overcome their past differences in the name of profit. Yeah, capitalism! Now you can be a proud owner of one of four remaining pieces of Zach’s famous pink hat autographed by both HGs.

The feuding duo came together this week to participate in a poker tournament and took advantage of their time together to autograph four individual pieces of the hat that helped defined Zach’s signature look. Well, at least before Victoria shredded it to pieces. Now the hat pieces have been autographed, framed, and are available on eBay in four separate auctions.

All four auctions are currently set to end the evening of Sunday, October 19th and they’re all going for over $300 a piece with the brim piece up over $500. Wow! I’d imagine the profits are being split between the two, but I haven’t seen any specifics on that. Take a look at the photos below to see more.

If pink hat pieces aren’t your thing then you can check out Amber’s auction for those bunny slippers we saw become a regular part of Caleb’s wardrobe this summer. Amber says Big Brother saved them for her at the end of the season, but jokes they didn’t receive a stipend of their own. Amber will be donating the proceeds to charity with Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Looks like recent seasons of Big Brother have really up’d the eBay game which usually consisted of selling off their BB bags. Plenty of fun memorabilia items out there to get for yourself if you’ve got the money to splurge. Enjoy!

Announced this week, Zach is selling wristbands sporting the “Froot Loop Dingus” catchphrase in any color you want as long as that color is pink. You can pick one up at his order page here.

Of course that color calls to mind an ongoing awareness campaign this month, the fight against breast cancer, and Zach is giving back a portion of the proceeds to that very cause. He shared these details:

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I am selling PINK ranceypants/frootloopdingus bracelets! 20% of all proceeds will be donated directly to breast cancer research.

Help the fight against breast cancer and order your bracelets today! Plus, 5 lucky orders (picked at random) will receive a personal shout out from me on twitter!

For anyone wanting to support the cause, but not interested in a bracelet, you can donate directly to an organization like Komen. You’ll just have to find your own pink wear to sport the Zach Attack style.

Speaking of showing up on Twitter, after days of silence Zach Rance has arrived to the cheers of his fans. His pursuit of legions of followers reached a milestone this week when he hit 200K (currently at 204K) and all without the support of a celebrity sibling. Then again, he does have Pizzle to thank.

As for celebrity support, Zach spent some time on the phone talking with Dr. Will Kirby this week and referenced him as a mentor. Could he have been one of the few HGs Will said he advised preseason?

Beast Mode Cowboy is living his dream hanging out with fans, celebrities, and getting back to BMC’s natural habitat, the gym. Cody Calafiore has been getting out there too as he gets used to life outside the house. Nicole Franzel had herself a nice welcoming party on her return and even Victoria Rafaeli has officially joined Twitter.

Evel Dick Reveals Why He Quit Big Brother: “I Am HIV Positive”

| October 1, 2014 at 1:45 PM EST

Fans will remember that by the time Big Brother premiered in 2011 the Season 8 winner was no where to be found. Evel Dick had mysteriously left in the few days between the time the Houseguests entered and the show began. There was much speculation at the time and the reason at the time was rumored to be that he left to support someone close to him. Now the real reason has been revealed.

As part of his appearance on VH1′s “Couples Therapy” Evel Dick shared his story with People Magazine on how he came to learn he was living with HIV:

Donato was competing on season 13 of Big Brother when producers called him into the house’s Diary Room. “They told me that something was wrong with my blood test,” he says. “They had done two HIV tests. One had come back positive and the other had come back negative.” The show’s doctor took more blood. Two hours later, Donato learned the life-changing news.

“When they told me, I just went numb,” he says. With little explanation, Donato left the show. “They had a car take me from CBS to my mother’s house. She was the first person I told.”

Evel Dick goes on to say that he does not know how he contracted HIV, but assumes it could have been due to unprotected sex with a woman. As for his girlfriend, she was tested and those results were negative for the disease.
