Big Brother 13 House Tour Video

| June 29, 2011 at 5:48 PM EDT

We’ve finally got a full, high-quality version of the full Big Brother 13 house tour guided Julie Chen! This is a full-blown walk through of the new BB13 design.

Updated video from tonight’s ET episode. This one doesn’t autoplay.

Best part of the clip is when Julie says she hopes for 13 more rounds of Big Brother. So do we, Julie! Glad to know you feel the same.

Big Brother Spoilers poster Brad noted an interesting absence from this version of the clip we saw last night: Julie’s comment about “dynamic duos from the past.” Hmm, could CBS have edited that out of tonight’s released version?

The Insider presents the video tour from CBS and describes the house this way:

This season’s house has a Venice [Beach], CA theme — since the show is filmed in Los Angeles — complete with surfboards, bikes, barbecues, graffiti, a weightlifting station and even a tarot card reader! Of course, the back yard has a pool and a hot tub – and there’s a colorful bedroom inspired by Katy Perry, and one of brushed steel inspired by architect Frank Gehry.

From what we’ve seen so far the house looks awesome. I can’t wait to see it in action.

Bonus footage for you this evening from Big Brother Access (video below the break). ET Canada is at it again tonight, this time with footage from Media Day when their own host heads inside to help test out the new house with a 24-hour game of Big Brother. Looks like Xfinity won the HoH. Xfinity? What the…

Big Brother 13 Twist: Dynamic Duos

| June 29, 2011 at 8:46 AM EDT

Big Brother 13 twist

Julie Chen has made the Big Brother 13 twist official after an appearance last night on ET Canada’s debut of the BB13 House tour (see video below). Our favorite reality host let the annual summer mystery be at least partially resolved with this comment:

“Dynamic Duos from the past will have a significant role this season.”

A common reaction to Ms. Chen’s statement was that we’d be seeing past Big Brother houseguests return to Big Brother 13, but I’m taking this in another direction. I think it’s more likely we’ll see pairings involving friends from outside the game similar to BB6’s twist which featured seven pairs with secret alliances, each thinking they were unique in their advantage. As always, that’s just speculation on my part and we’ll have to wait to see just what “dynamic duos” will really mean for this season of Big Brother.

The Big Brother 13 cast will be announced on Thursday morning as part of CBS’ The Early Show, so we won’t have to wait much longer to have this mystery solved. I’ll have all the cast pics and bios posted early tomorrow with an alert on our Facebook page.

Don’t forget to get the preseason Live Feed discount which expires very soon. You can download our free step-by-step guide to getting the best price you’ll see all season.

Big Brother 13 House Pics

| June 28, 2011 at 6:17 AM EDT

Here we go! Here’s your first look at the Big Brother 13 House! It’s kind of a beach theme this year with bright, summer colors and surfboards mounted to the kitchen walls, but it varies around the house. Definitely won’t be dull to watch!

Perhaps most important is the kitchen table and memory wall both featuring space for fourteen houseguests! I love big casts for all the extra opportunities of drama.

Yahoo!TV’s Matt Whitfield reports the house has 9 sleeping spots on the first floor, a fortune teller machine in the lounge room (which probably explains the skeleton poster), benches by the HoH door, and a mysterious, locked back bedroom (Have-Nots!).

What do you think of the new house? Compare it to last season’s house. I’m excited!

Don’t forget, only 9 days left to get the Live Feed Early Bird sale. When Big Brother 13 premieres the cost to watch the live feeds goes up. Get your whole season for $29.99!

Update: We’ve got even more pictures from the new Big Brother house posted and will continue to add more as they appear over the coming days.

Update 2: Even more pics from CBS! Now we can see the backyard. It looks great!

Update 3: Reader Topher noticed there are 2 different versions of the HoH room. Very interesting. Take a look: HoH Version 1 & HoH Version 2 but which is the final?

Update 3.1: A mysterious tipster “confirms” the orange version of the room was the final HoH room design. Tipster also notes the secret room we haven’t seen yet is a “Clue” like library room. Very cool if true!

Update 4: Canada beat us to it! Julie Chen’s video tour appeared on ET Canada tonight. Video courtesy of Big Brother Access is below the pics.

Big Brother 13 Preseason Roadmap To Premiere Night

| June 24, 2011 at 9:48 AM EDT

We’re getting a lot of “when is this, “when is that” questions for the upcoming season of Big Brother so I thought it’d be best to let everyone know what we know and when we can expect to know more (you know?). These dates are based on information we’ve gathered and past seasons which has been a reliable pattern to follow.

Big Brother 13 Roadmap to Premiere Night:

Schedule updated with the latest info and dates.

The Big Brother broadcast schedule will be Sundays (8PM ET/PT), Wednesdays (8PM ET/PT), and Thursdays (9PM ET/PT). So the same days as last season, but a different, later time for Thursday’s live eviction shows.
