CBS is planning a Big Brother reunion on one of its sitcoms. With the CBS reality series having wrapped its fourth season September 24, the network hopes to capitalize on the show's popularity by bringing back nearly a dozen cast members from the last three seasons to guest-star on an upcoming episode of Monday comedy Yes, Dear
The plot will have a "Dear" character somehow end up as a cast member of Big Brother, and one of his friends tries to rescue him. While it's not unusual for reality stars to pop up on scripted series, it's rare for so many to appear on a single program.
Among the "Brother" residents slated to appear: Will Kirby and Hardy Hill from season two and Marcellas Reynolds, Lisa Donahue, Amy Crews and Roddy Mancuso from season three.
Michelle Maradie from this year's edition is already locked in, while winner Jun Song, along with runner-up Alison Irwin and Nathan Marlow and Justin Giovinco have all been approached about appearing.
