The new cast of Big Brother 6 is now up on the CBS website:

Looks like they just decided to not cast any "older" folks as houseguests this season.

Looks like the same cookie cutter reality show group..gay black man, bleached blondes, guys who think their God's gifts,and some naive(sp) home town types.

Not sure if I can watch again...and yes we are guilty of watching past episodes at our house.
WOOSAH!.

thefutoncritic has this season's first twist, I'll spoilerize it just in case:

Quote:
For the first time, every houseguest will be entering the house and playing the game with a secret partner -- someone they know from the outside world. Friends, co-workers and significant others will play the Big Brother game as secret duos. The twist is that each secret team believes that they are the only pair in the house (pairings will be revealed to TV viewers during the first live broadcast on July 14). Each twosome knows that if they can keep their secret and end up being the last two people in the house, the winner will win $1,000,000, the biggest cash prize in Big Brother history, with the second place finisher winning $250,000. If a twosome does not make it to the final two, the winner will win $500,000.

Why not try all identical twins? Posted Image I see they copied the winner's "bathroom" idea from the Australia show. Only here, they will likely have tinted windows around the bathtub and no invited "guest."
If they're all in an alliance already, seems way too predictable at some point down the line. Just get two or three people and suddenly its a majority. Don't really think this will work well, unless the alliance member isn't exactly a friend of the other. However, that's likely not the case either as those who, for example, worked in different parts of a company would inadvertently blow their cover unfairly (in true CBS BB fashion). In the end, it probably will leave more of them likely to play the "Scott" lie about everything role.
Wonder what their agents think about the gimmick? Sure hope Ivette dumps
Janelle
for
Jennifer
. Posted Image Somebody else can work out
who's likely with who,
but 8 females versus 6 males. Posted Image

They're all models once again, but the only attractive one in the bunch is Sarah. All of them other women look 10-20 years older than they claim to be.

Anyway, I'll watch but this is a horrible cast, both in looks and personality (read Kaysar's list of favorites...or lack thereof).

Is it just me, or do Jennifer and Ivette look enough alike to be sisters?

They do look very alike, and Rachel reminds me a little of Erika from BB4.

Sarah is cute. Rachel sort of has Jennifer Wilbanks eyes, don't find her all that likable.

The fireman is playing up the Tommy Gavin role from "Rescue Me".

What's wrong with the men they pick? Looks like another "4 horseman" game. James doesn't want Jennifer in the house because she flirts too much, well it's time for James, Maggie, and Erik to go ASAP. Posted Image

Edit:

Looks like they're going to need more twists real soon. On the tv show you saw Rachel found the secret room and now it appears at least a few
couples have figured out they aren't the only couple.

The gig is up. At least, April/Jen, Sarah/James, and Ashlea/Janelle are aware what is up and have been pointing out who they think are together.


Jen is
hotter than
Ivette.

I think the pairings are going to be a big whoop-dee-doo, and it'll sort of turn into the reverse of Big Brother 4 (the ex's). I also don't like the pairings to cause either trouble or mistrust between the other pairings (gaining up, voting bloc, etc).

Whatever happened to just sticking a bunch of strangers together in a locked down house, and let them sort it out themselves?

voting bloc
That's where this is a major problem. We're only in Week 1 and
there is already a solid alliance in the majority. You've got dolts like Howie and Erik in a "Men's" alliance with James but neither Howie/Rachel or Erik/Maggie know the twist. So James has 6 for him because they don't know. Mike/Kaysar, Ivette/Beau and April/Jen and even Janelle are foolishly going along with that majority. If Ashlea doesn't win the veto and Janele doesn't out the couples for what they are as she leaves, the table could be run very quickly.

Voting blocs aren't a lock in BB like they are in Survivor.. The power to nominate changes every week as you know so a voting bloc can be decimated if they fail to win HoH for a few weeks.

Yeah, but now an alliance of 2 is an alliance of 4. An Alliance of 3 is an alliance of 6, etc.

If the rule for $ million is "without being discovered" then
it's already over for everyone.
The interesting thing will be how long people can go without accidentally revealing to another pair they already know "you're with X so you can quit with the BS."

That's what I'm wondering too. I don't know, I find the twist interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

The producers probably planned on this scenario playing out at some point early on, they probably have a new twist ready to go now that the gig is up.

There may be some ejections this year, they are on an edge
knowing the gig is up. Plus Eric, James, and Ivette can't go 5 seconds without going bonkers talking strategy and making alliances with everyone.
