Big Brother 17 Casting Dates Announced



We hit 50 degrees last week here in Boston, so you know what that means?!? It’s time to dust off the Big Brother blog because the new season is just around the corner!

Do you want to be part of Big Brother 17? Join the club. Literally. Open casting events will be taking place soon, so you can join all the other people in your area who want to be rejected for BB17… oops, I mean cast for the show. Woah, woah, rejected for the show?  What do you mean?  Let’s be real here. If they do another 16 person season, you have to factor in at least half of them are going to be recruited (or friends of friends of friends).  Then you have a few spots reserved for key personalities like:

The older dude: (Adam, Spencer, Donnie, Chef Joe)
The “super fan”: (Ian, McCrae, Christine)
The feisty New Yorker: (JoJo, Paola, GinaMarie)
The free spirit / surfer type: (Hayden, Frank, Dave)
The outspoken one (Joey, Amanda, Janelle)
The gay one (Frankie, Wil, Andy)
The sibling (Elissa, Willy, Frankie)
About 2 female and 2 male models per season (too many to list)


If you’re a regular person who doesn’t fit a specific role, good luck, you’re going to need it. Either way, I wish you luck, and if you get in, be sure to do some BBJ shoutouts!
