Perhaps inspired by that other engagement this season or maybe a case of distance making the heart grow fonder, Donny decided he was ready to put a ring on it. Best of all, she said “yes!”
During an interview released this week by BNJ, Donny Thompson closed the discussion out saying “Kristine is no longer my girlfriend, she is my fiancée.” Much cheering and hugging ensued as the room congratulated Donny on his wise decision. Looks like Donny finally got that alliance after all!
Big Brother fans will remember Kristine’s appearance in an episode early this season when Jeff visited Donny’s hometown to speak with his family and friends. We also heard many references to Kristine by Donny and saw how supportive she was of his decision to apply for the show including helping him film his audition video. And don’t forget that touching HoH letter that brought Donny to tears.
Congratulations to both Donny Thompson and Kristine Bartley on their engagement. We wish them the very best of luck and can’t wait for updates on their plans for the future and when they’ll tie the knot.
Sure to not be alone, the BB16 HGs were joined by lots of past season HGs, friends, and fans who joined them to drink away the season and maybe even gamble off that stipend.
From the looks of it everyone was having a great time getting to know each other with the Live Feed capturing their every word and movement.
This season’s Big Brother Houseguests definitely earned some time off before heading back home to their regular lives after nearly three and a half months since they first arrived in LA. Congrats to all the HGs on a season well done. Now it’s time to find the next batch of BB17 HGs!
When Donny Thompson was evicted from Big Brother 16 we learned he had a special opportunity ahead of him: appearing on CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful,” but it turns out he won’t be alone. In fact, nearly half the cast will join Donny in a special episode.
According to TV Guide’s interview with Donny he’ll be joined by seven other BB16 HGs plus five more from past seasons. It’ll be Big Brother overload when they appear in episodes airing October 30-31, 2014. So who all will be there along with Donny? We’ll get to see Zach Rance, Nicole Franzel, Amber Borzotra, Cody Calafiore, Caleb Reynolds, Hayden Voss, and Devin Shepherd.
While that list has a lot of this summer’s HGs there are obviously quite a number of them who did not make the cut. Bold & Beautiful producer Casey Kasprzyk told TV Guide the decision was made based on “time and budget” and they would have otherwise invited more of the season’s cast.
Houseguests from past Big Brother seasons joining the BB16 crew on screen will be Elissa, Jeff & Jordan, Rachel, and Brendon. That is going to be one very, very busy episode of B&B.
We did get an early detail on what Donny’s character will be doing in his appearance. Kaspryzk teased, “We’re going to have fun with all the speculations about Donny’s ‘real’ career and it’ll involve a lot of costume changes.” Sounds like they’ll put the HGs’ paranoia of Donny’s fictional mysterious past as a super genius secret commando ninja to good use.
The episode appears to have already been filmed as Caleb was sharing photos on Friday from backstage prep including him with the other Big Brother stars set to appear. We’ll keep an eye out for when their special episode airs next month. Can’t wait to see how everyone handles their scenes.

The BB16 Houseguests haven’t slowed down since escaping the confines of Studio 18 this week with not just one celebration, but two afterparties. Now many of them are heading out to Vegas for the Wrap Party celebration starting tonight. Okay, well it looks like they went ahead and got started last night, but things officially kick off tonight at Aria’s Deuce Lounge.
Starting tonight at 9PM at The Deuce Lounge the party kicks off before rolling over to the Haze nightclub for the afterparty. No word yet on what time the Haze event starts, so be sure to check Deuce first.
Big Brother fans hoping to meet up with some of their favorites from this season and past summers are in luck. Aria is advertising that you’ll be able to meet Amber, Brittany, Donny, yes even Donny knows how to party in Vegas, and Jocasta from this season. That won’t be it though as we’re spotting a lot of familiar faces from both BBUS and BBCAN.
From past BBUS seasons I’ve spotted Judd, Jeremy, Parker, Michelle, Lawon, Howie. BBCAN has arrived with Arlie, Peter, Liza, Allison, Sarah, and Rachelle. And those were all just from who arrived Friday night, so I imagine as Saturday rolls along we’ll see lots more Big Brother alumni show up.

It was another fun night of partying from the looks of it for the Big Brother 16 Houseguests as they celebrated wins and freedom along with the company of past HGs, friends, and even some celebs.
I’ve been watching a flood of pictures on Twitter coming in from the Big Brother after party, but the best ones are showing up from Philip Alan Photography. No surprise really that his photos are some of the best ones to check out along with the HGs’ own candid pictures.
Along with other former BBUS HGs showing up to support the BB16 crew there were even BBCAN Houseguests who made the trip down to enjoy the fun. Gets me excited and ready for BBCAN3!
The Big Brother 16 has come to an end after an exciting season of highs and lows but an extremely entertaining one none the less. As we wrap up the last few parts of the summer show I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for joining us.
Coming off a tumultuous season I wasn’t sure what we’d get this time around but a mostly solid cast came together and moved things along while, for the most part, dodging issues of the past round. The twists were a mix of core game impacting and side show distractions though I’m still not sure why it’d be considered the “most twisted season ever.” All the same I appreciated all the extra content Battle of the Block and Team America gave us to discuss each week.
The drama may have been mild at times, but it was certainly there and plenty of strategic moves kept the season rolling. Along with getting to see an absolutely great player take home the win I’ll remember this season as my first chance to be part of a live eviction audience thanks to CBS’s invitation and your efforts to make us a standout in the crowd. That was an absolute dream come true for this fan.
Readership took a healthy leap up here on the site this season and I’d like to thank Branden, Adam Poch, and Judd Daugherty for contributing a season of hard work and dedicated writing to help make that happen. We truly appreciate your support by visiting us, recommending our site to your Big Brother fan friends, and especially going through us to get your Live Feed subscriptions!
With confirmation that Big Brother 17 will be here next summer plus another season ordered by CBS on top of that we’re confident that we’ve got a lot of fun left ahead of us for our favorite reality series. Luckily it’s not the only reality series we cover though and there’s a lot to do in the off-season.
