Returning from some time off Kass announced updates on both Big Brother Canada’s third season and the upcoming BB17 later this summer. Finalists for the two-time excellent installment to our north have now been chosen as Kassting’s focus prepares to shift next to Big Brother US’s casting.

Our coverage for BBCAN is set to resume in the coming months with Big Brother’s return there, but the bulk of our readers are anxious to find out who will be part of the Big Brother 17 cast. Hopefully lots of potential Houseguests are preparing their own applications as well and looking out for when the next open casting calls will be held.

Last season the open call events started in late February with the bulk of auditions rolling out in late March and April. Sounds like BB17′s events will be centered around those later dates for 2015, but we will continue to monitor the official casting site and report and updates along the way.

Houseguests Hopefuls ready to submit their applications for Big Brother 17 instead of applying in person can do so now. There’s currently no deadline in place, but that’s no reason to wait and risk missing your chance at one of the Big Brother 17 keys. Best of luck to all applicants!

‘All Access’ Flashback: Big Brother 6 Season Premiere Recap

| December 30, 2014 at 8:00 AM EST

Up next in our Big Brother All Access Flashback series is Big Brother 6 which aired the summer of 2005 and brought a brand new house along with some of the series’ most memorable Houseguests and the chance for a million dollar reward.

Ahh yes, BB6, easily one of my favorite seasons of Big Brother ever for a lot of reasons, but also one of the most aggravating for several other reasons. Fourteen HGs rolled up to the new house with only six men and eight women after a last minute replacement left the sex-balance uneven. But with this “Summer of Secrets,” anything was possible.

The Season 6 premiere raced through the usual intros and packed more in to a debut episode than any of the previous years. While past years had only introduced the HGs or stopped after the first competition, this time around we saw the intros, learned about the twists, saw a combined food & HoH comp, and even got the first nomination ceremony of the season. It was a busy one.

Big Brother Houseguests that summer included April Lewis, Ashlea Evans, Beau Beasley, Eric Littmann, Howie Gordon, Ivette Corredero, James Rhine, Janelle Pierzina, Jennifer Vasquez, Kaysar Ridha, Maggie Ausburn, Michael Donnellan, Rachel Plencner, and Sarah Hrejsa.

Big Brother 17 Rumors A Hoax, Says Big Brother Casting Director Robyn Kass

| December 22, 2014 at 11:00 AM EST

While many Big Brother fans are still recovering from a hectic season this past summer the Big Brother 17 rumor mill is hard at work churning out tales as talls as Derrick’s “Holla!” stacks last season.

Big Brother’s Casting Director Robyn Kass took to Twitter this weekend to blast supposed rumors and “leaks” for BB17 coming from the usual fake sources that we’ve seen in the past:

Readers may remember from a few years ago the fake ex-employee that promised the whole season was rigged from Amanda to win (it wasn’t) since she was best friends with executive producer Allison Grodner (she wasn’t). The seemingly obvious fake story found quite a following of believers even after Amanda was evicted and sent off to the Jury house.

Looks like someone is desperate for attention and trying the same rumor again for Big Brother 17 but Robyn calls them out for their weak and unimaginative approach:

Kass confirms any “insider” claims floating around are false and that casting for Big Brother 2015 hasn’t even begun yet which is good news for hopeful Houseguests still planning to submit an application to be on Big Brother next season. You’ve still got plenty of time, but don’t wait! Hurry up and apply to be on the show. Maybe we’ll be talking about you next summer!

Caleb officially made the transfer from Beastmode Cowboy to Beastmode Boyfriend this past week sharing the news with his fans. “Okay everyone, yes I am dating someone. And she is amazing! And has a beautiful soul. I believe this one is from God,” said Caleb through a posting on Twitter.

Soon the flood of photos of Caleb and his new girlfriend, Ashley Jay, arrived along with lots of thanks to his fans for supporting his happy news. Looks like the pair were both there in Colorado for the same commercial shoot and were wasting no time in building up their selfie collection.

According to Ashley’s profile she’s the host of Ultimate Hunting on Outdoor Channel, a fitness freak, and a national bikini competitor. Unfortunately, she doesn’t mention her stance on pickles, but “at the end of the day,” I’d say we’ve got a solid match here, don’t you think?

Check out some of their photos below and see what Caleb is up to these days.
