Our Big Brother 16 Cast Interviews Are Coming Soon!

| June 4, 2014 at 10:00 AM EST

Are you ready to meet the Big Brother 16 cast of HouseGuests? I am! CBS has awesomely offered me the chance to head to Los Angeles and sit down with this season’s cast days before they’re revealed to the public for a series of cast interviews that I’ll soon be able to deliver to you.

In just a few short weeks you’ll be meeting all the new season’s HouseGuests and making your early picks and predictions for who will do well and who could be your “love to hate” villain of the season! But in the meantime I could use your help getting ready.

This season I’m aiming for more concise, to the point interviews with the really important questions you want to hear answered. To make that happen I want to know what you want to hear the Big Brother cast discuss. Tell me what you would ask the HGs if you were sitting across from them.

Update: Awesome suggestion. What would be on your “list of demands” for this season’s HGs?

I’ll compile the very best submissions, mix them together, and get the answers to the topics you want addressed. But to get there is the next step where I really need your help.

Flying across the country, getting a car and hotel room in LA, and then racing back home to crank these videos out in 48-hours ain’t cheap. I have never asked for donations and I do not plan to do so. Instead you can directly support our site and our Big Brother coverage efforts at no cost to you by signing up for the Big Brother Live Feeds free trial through our links and banners. CBS gives us a referral commission for every subscriber that joins through our site. That helps the “little guy”!

It costs absolutely nothing for you to use our links, all sign-ups either here or at CBS’s site cost the exact same amount. By using our links to get your Early Bird or in-season subscription started you fuel my work and all our efforts here on the site. Thank you for doing that. It really does help and I truly appreciate it.

So let’s do this! Step 1) Share your question ideas & Step 2) Sign-up for the Live Feed Free Trial.

Thanks again and I can’t wait to share the new Big Brother 16 cast with you!

As a reminder of my past Big Brother interviews, here’s a compilation video from last season featuring a behind-the-scenes look at a day in my life meeting all of the HouseGuests:

Big Brother Casting Director Confirms BB16 Finalists Selected

| June 4, 2014 at 7:00 AM EST

As the Big Brother house doors prepare to open, those at the casting department have closed. Big Brother Hopefuls who had yet to hear anything on their audition process, or subsequent follow-ups if they were so lucky, can now start preparing for next season’s auditions.

Robyn Kass, casting director for Big Brother 16, tweeted out several messages over the past few days indicating the finalists have been selected. On Friday she teased fans with “I know, the waiting game is tough…. but it’s almost over!” before sharing the photo above from a Big Brother event on the CBS studio lot.

One last message should settle the question of whether those BB16 finalists have been determined:

With the selection of the finalists and any alternatives, and they’ve needed them the past several seasons, we are now one step closer to the start of Big Brother 16! Are you ready for the action to begin? Be sure to get your Season Pass for the Live Feeds now before the preseason Early Bird sale ends. You’ll be able to start watching content today through your Feeds account.

Big Brother returns to CBS on June 25, 2014 as part of the usual three nights a week routine. We’ll be here covering every moment of the Feeds and shows so be sure to join us on Facebook, Twitter, and get our Email Updates. Thanks for joining me again this season!


Big Brother Cast ‘Blood’ Twist Rumors Swirl For BB16

| June 2, 2014 at 10:30 AM EST

The Big Brother cast for the 2014 summer season is still weeks away from being announced, but the twist rumors are already going at full speed with some very interesting possibilities for BB16.

While there are several rumors working their way through the mill, one of the more plausible variations involves a Survivor inspired Blood Vs Water twist for Big Brother 16 this summer. For those unfamiliar with the Blood Vs Water theme, relationships (family members or loved ones) were brought to the game as pairs and then split up the morning the game began. Pitted against each other the “blood” competed on opposite teams before eventually being reunited at the tribe merge.

Obviously there would have to be some differences considering Big Brother is not arranged in the same way as Survivor. There are alliances, but no defined tribes so any pairs brought to the BB16 season would likely be free to work together throughout the game.

We’ve seen family work together before in one of the most successful alliances ever: Evel Dick & Daniele Donato. Back in Season 8 the initially at-odds father & daughter duo went on to secure the Final Two spots and make for one heck of a season. Could lightning strike twice with family fighting together?

CBS Offers New Features On Big Brother 16 Live Feeds

| May 28, 2014 at 2:55 PM EST

CBS Live Feeds are back for Big Brother 16 and with your sign-up comes a lot of new features for the 2014 BB16 season along with the return of many of our favorites.

Big Brother 16 Live Feeds Bonus Features

While the Early Bird sale has begun weeks earlier than ever before I’m seeing a lot of details coming from CBS on what subscribers will get with their Feeds this year and so far it’s looking really good.

As usual we’ll get desktop, tablet, and mobile device, 24/7 access to content, but we all know the Feeds aren’t always available due to competitions, ceremonies, and the occasional brawl-turned-ejection. So thankfully in that downtime we’ll get other bonus features to keep us busy.

New this year we’ll get several Subscriber-Only features including online votes that will effect the houseguests and possibly the game. CBS says there will be weekly votes on events and activities for us to influence the game, but the votes are only available to those who have signed up for Feeds.

Next, users will have access to an “enhanced tracker” which sounds an awful lot like my status scoreboard I keep updated daily on the week to week events every Big Brother season. I hope that “enhanced” part means they’ll update it with some regularity unlike last season when they waited until after the shows to update a Feeds-only status. Go figure.

Returning are several key features we look for each year. Flashback / Archives is very important. If you ever miss any events on the Live Feeds then you can flip back the timeline just like using a DVR and see what happened. Dial in on any day, hour, minute, and camera view to see what happened and watch as many times as you want. That’s a key part of enjoying the Feeds without having to worry about timing bathroom breaks! What? Is that just me?

Pre-order your Big Brother Live Feeds now – 20% Off

On top of the Flashback feature CBS will offer up highlights from every day for you to jump right into rather than having to search across the day or camera views. Much easier.

There will also be Subscriber-Only Chat with other fans in existing chat rooms or create your own and have your friends meet you there.

I’m really excited about the return of the Big Brother Live Feeds this summer and getting back in to a new season with a new mix of Houseguests. We’re due for an awesome Big Brother 16 season! Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and by Email updates so you can get all the latest news and spoilers all summer long.

Thank you to everyone who uses our links and banners to sign-up for their Live Feeds. It really does make a difference for us while not costing you a penny more. I greatly appreciate your support!

Yep, not much there, but it’s not so much the content that makes this exciting, it’s the reminder that Big Brother 16 arrives in just a few short weeks! The new season will premiere on CBS on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 8PM, followed by 9PM on Thursdays, and 8PM on Sundays.
