The open-call audition events for the new Big Brother 16 cast have begun to roll out! So far Kassting Inc. has only released a few events and they’re almost a month early, but as we see each season there end up being a lot added as things progress. Last season there were twenty six events and the year before that there were twenty seven, so expect a lot more to be announced.

For those unable to attend an audition event then you’ll want to apply online, a method recommended by at least one past HG. As we’ve heard in the past, there is no need to both apply in-person and online. Once either way is enough.

To make sure you’re ready to apply for BB16, check out Robyn Kass’s 9 Must-Know Tips before you submit your application and attend an event. You can also read Matt Hoffman’s in-depth casting guide, or Dan Gheesling’s e-book. All three of them are highly qualified to share advice on becoming the next Big Brother 15 HG.

We’ll keep an eye on the this information and update the list as more details are released. In the meantime, you can start searching for the closest city.

  1. I’m so upset by this! The South Burlington, VT location is so close to the university I go to. I just turned 19 so I can’t apply. Hoping they have it here again in 2 years. Fingers crossed!

  2. Ughh if only BB would lower the age requirements to atleast 18. Survivor’s age requirements is 18. Why can’t BB. I’m turning 19 in a few weeks and I wish I can apply for BB. I gotta wait a few more years :/

  3. Will S16 finally be in HIGH DEFINITION?

    If the show in 2014, I repeat 2014, is not HD, THERE’S A BIG PROBLEM SOMEWHERE.

    • I’d be surprised. The issue is most likely the immense cost to replace all the cameras, wiring, and every AV switch running behind the scenes. Massive, massive costs. It’s not just a quick, easy swap.

  4. Shawn Michelle Henry for BB16! #BB16 #ohiorockers#16 #idontfightfair #getmeoutofcleveland #notprimandproper

  5. Well I being trying for five years too get on BB . You would think wow this women really wants to be a houseguest on the show. I lost over 40 lbs. to be on the show. Like to see young and old. I still like having fun just because you are older does not mean you are not active. .
