The most anticipated cast member to join Big Brother 15 this season is easily Elissa Slater. What makes her special? Well, the fact that her sister is the queen of drama, tears, and a former winner of Big Brother. If you need another hint… nobody is gonna get between me and my man!
That’s right – Rachel Reilly! I think this is a good substitute for bringing in former houseguests, simply because they can bring the drama, they have some name recognition, but aren’t celebs and have no experience in the game. No matter how ‘good’ your family is at reality shows, being a sibling doesn’t seem matter (see: Willie Hantz).
Elissa is going to enter the Big Brother 15 house incognito, and may get to stay that way for a solid 2-3 days. One of the superfans will recognize her as she’s been no stranger to the camera by posing with her sister. In addition, there was a lot of speculation that her sister was going in, as she casually tweeted she was going away on vacation. I believe it was the same ‘vacation’ spot Janelle used last year.
By the time the cameras go live, her secret will likely be out, and she’ll become an instant threat in the game. Due to the fact that she doesn’t have the experience (or former houseguests protecting her), Elissa’s game may end sooner rather than later. I’m sure she’s going to be a fierce competitor, but once that secret gets out, she’s toast.
Let’s just hope she cries less, and has a normal laugh.
