Update: Lucky you if you were late because Kassting has extended the app deadline to April 25, 2014!
With the June 25, 2014 start date for BB16 approaching quickly the casting team is moving just as fast to pull together this season’s houseguests.

Readers have asked if casting events after April 4th would still count since that’s the online deadline. Yes, of course, they wouldn’t be holding open-call events if they weren’t able to cast those applicants.
BB Hopefuls often wonder which way is better: online or in-person? It’s all about personal preference. BB12’s Matt Hoffman wrote an extensive guide on getting cast and he highly recommends doing the online approach so you have complete control over your application video. Meanwhile last season’s HGs Andy Herren and Helen Kim were both cast after attending the Chicago open-call. So both methods can be very successful, but do not do both. Pick one or the other.
There is no need to submit an online application and attend a Big Brother casting event. Nor should you attend multiple events or submit several online applications. You run the risk of annoying the casting team and that’s probably not going to help your chances.
Best of luck to everyone who applies for Big Brother 16! We can’t wait to meet this season’s cast when the series returns for another early premiere on CBS!
Judd Daugherty caught up with fellow Big Brother HGs Helen Fitzpatrick and Matt Hoffman in a trip to Chicago this week for a chance steal Andy Herren’s half-million dollar prize money. Or at least that’s what we think Judd was up to in his first-ever trip to the Windy City.
Before you say it, we know, we know. “Who cares?” Well in case you do we’ve collected up pictures shared by Judd, Helen, and Andy in their trip around town including some drinking with friends, catching up with one of our favs, Matt Hoffman, and even taking in a little cultural development at the art museum.
Speaking of the art museum, it’s hard not to love their recreation of the Ferris Bueller artwork pose that they put together. Check out all their pictures below and then get ready for a new batch of Big Brother 16 Houseguests as the BB16 casting events finally ramp up this weekend!
The Big Brother alumni would be a pretty cool club to join (ahem, you have applied for Big Brother 16, right?) what with seeing past seasons mingle and mix throughout the year. Last week Big Brother 15’s Amanda Zuckerman and Big Brother 8’s winner Evel Dick caught up in Florida for a Survivor viewing party.
They weren’t alone though as BB14’s Kara Monaco and BBEverySeason’s Jessie Godderz were along for the event as was Hayden Moss’s girlfriend Kat Edorsson of Survivor. Now that’s a wide spectrum of Big Brother HGs all in one place!
Amanda and Evel Dick have been hanging out and having a good time elsewhere too with a trip to see Jessie performing for Impact Wrestling. Of course that opportunity lead to one of Amanda’s other favorite past times, antagonizing online followers by joking she was there with her “new boyfriend” Evel Dick. I think it’s safe to say this was another joke, but you can decide on that one. Check out all their pics below!

Judd’s question asked Allison, Scott, and Nate to explain which two BBCAN2 HGs they’d target for eviction if they went in to the game right then. It was a smart question and got the HGs thinking on what they’d do.
Sadly it was not an in-person visit to the house like we saw last season when Dan Gheesling spent a weekend in the house, but this was still a fun and unexpected surprise. Congrats to Judd on making the cut for an appearance last night.
Check out the pics below of Judd’s “visit” to the Secret HGs and then join us on our Big Brother Canada fansite!
Get ready for Big Brother 16 to start up early again this year! CBS has just announced the BB16 season will launch on June 25, 2014 in a move similar to last season’s early arrival. Awesome!
We’re thrilled to hear CBS is making another strong move of support for our favorite summer series (and fav reality series!) by giving us extra weeks of the dramatic BB show. Of course we’re hoping we get to focus on the better drama than some of last season!
So when does Big Brother 16 start? The series premiere arrives on Wednesday, June 25th and brings back its triple weekly episodes schedule. We’ll be watching new episodes Sundays and Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT plus live eviction shows every Thursday at 9PM ET/PT.
BIG BROTHER, hosted by Julie Chen, will debut early for the second straight summer, beginning Wednesday, June 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) with the first of its three weekly broadcasts. The Thursday edition, featuring the live eviction show, premieres June 26 (9:00-10:00 PM) with the first eviction the following week (July 3). The Sunday broadcast premieres June 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
We’re thrilled to get that official confirmation from CBS and can’t wait to keep rolling out the BB16 preseason news. If you’re planning to apply to be a HG this summer then you better hurry. The application deadline this year is April 4th so that is coming up soon!

Big Brother Canada is underway this week after Wednesday night’s premiere of the sophomore season. Last night BBCAN host Arisa Cox officially introduced the secret cast that would become the first big twist of the season.
Arisa proudly announced that this was a totally new twist for any Big Brother anywhere. Here’s how the twist works. There were fourteen original HGs sent inside the house last week. Meanwhile a separate secret “war room” was set up on the sound stage where three additional HGs would reside for the next week.
Those secret HGs entered the room last night and have been observing Feeds from inside the house. The regular cast does not know about the secret HGs or that they’re being watched by them. Over the next week viewers will vote on which of the three secret HGs will get to go inside the regular house and join the game.
They’ve got Nate Sandari, a 23 year old sheet metal worker, Allison White, a 25 year old registered nurse working in psychiatry, and Scott “Contessa” Bosse, a 36 year old hospital worker slash drag queen. Viewers will be voting on those three options. So far Allison seems to be a serious BB fan which means I’m rooting for her to make the cut, but considering Canada’s love for Gary last season there may be a wave of support for Scott.
The three secret HGs had no idea what was going on last night when they were brought on stage and informed of their twist status. They probably thought they were preparing to head inside and start playing the game! So while it sounds like fun to be part of the twist it does not sound like fun for what they have to do.
Those HGs are trapped in one small room with three beds and a bunch of screens to watch the current HGs. There’s no escape or privacy for Nate, Allison, or Scott. I’d go nuts! But at least we can watch that happen with the 5th camera trained on them for the Feedsters to enjoy.
If you haven’t started watching Big Brother Canada then be sure to start right now! It’s very easy to watch the show from the US including episodes and the Feeds.
