It has been rumored for about a week now, but The Hollywood Reporter confirmed it to be true today. Big Brother 19 is happening much sooner than we expected, and that will be just a few weeks after Big Brother 18 ends!
The big change is that it won’t air on CBS at all. No live show, no nomination episode, etc. It will take place entirely online where the live feeds already are going on. That means you’ll have to sign up to All Access (which really is a great deal considering how cheap it is), or stick around here for spoilers and results! … and you guys thought you were going to get rid of me for the winter, hah! You’re stuck with me now.
Another positive from this? It doesn’t appear that the regular casting director is filling out the cast. I believe she will be busy handling Big Brother Canada, so that means there is a slight chance we actually may see some sort of change from the typical two step process:
a) Is this person a veteran of the show?
b) Is this person an aspiring actor or model?
(If no to either, discard application)
If you want to try out for Big Brother 19, they’re casting right now, so click on this link and good luck!
I will talk more about BB19 as I learn more information, but I don’t even know what to think about it right now. What do you guys think about the news?
Edit: I just realized I may have to hook up my Xbox to my computer as I haven’t been able to play since BB18 started. Or I have a reason to get a second one 🙂 Also, I’ve never blogged during school, so that should be fun.
Also, as far as those in Canada go. It does suck that you can’t access the feeds, so I’ll keep that in mind and try to be more descriptive in the posts. I post highlights generally assuming people can turn on the feeds if they want to see.
