Backyard Beauties: Big Brother 16 Cast Shows Off Their Bikinis & Bods

Every Big Brother preseason we await the release of the backyard photo showing the new cast ready to jump in the pool. Now the Big Brother 16 photos are here and they’re kinda strange, but we know why. Read on for more details and how it involves a surprise premiere.

Zap2It got the exclusive on these photos being released, so big thanks to them for sharing them with the fan community. Now that they’re out in the wild we can take a look and see what sort of crazy photoshopping went on to make this happen.

If you notice something looking weird it’s because there is. While some of the HGs in the pictures were actually there, not all of them were there at the same time. Instead as we reported earlier, the Big Brother 16 cast moved in at separate times over the weekend. So in each photo only half of the people are there with each other while the other half were added later.

Take a look at the Big Brother photos below and see if you can figure out who was in each move-in group for the women and the men. And yes, it’s okay to oogle just a little!

Update: And now we’ve got a full group shot, but were they really altogether? Hmm.

  1. Ewww at Frankie and Cody’s body positioning.

    And extra eww on Frankie not really looking good on that speedo. :))

    • There’s lot of discussion on the net about these photo been put together using Photoshop. Look at Hayden in the guys photo, look around his legs. Look also at Derreck, he got some little line that give it up. Either each person stood there alone for a picture and then they put the picture together by pasting them in place. Or they took multiple shot and pick each best look from different pics.

      • Clearly those thinking it was merely photoshopped didn’t pay attention to BB15′ opening credits (or in past seasons starting as far back as Season 11). Footage of their bikini photoshoot featuring Judd, Elissa, Howard and Nick was used for the season’s intro sequence.

        As someone who’s from that profession, I’ll give kudos whoever shot these photos like it’s from a one-page spread in a magazine. I’ll be damned if the photos were made to be digitally misleading beyond just adding some layers to “tone” the castmates’ bodies.

        Regarding Derrick, I also have a similar body-type as him so lighting is a factor if what really turns out as part of his ribcage was made to look like a shadow suggesting a six-pack.

  2. the speedo…. ugh! I could have gone forever without seeing that and been happy, and I am gay! NOT a good look.

  3. The group shot is the worst. It just doesn’t look natural. Several people look pasted in. The guys photo is also bad, especially Hayden.
