For the first time in BIG BROTHER history worldwide, viewers will vote on which former HouseGuests will compete in BIG BROTHER 7: ALL-STARS. On CBS Wednesday, June 21 at 8PM ET/PT, Julie Chen will unveil the top 20 candidates from seasons past. Web voting opens right here after the show at midnight ET/9PM PT. The polls close Wednesday, June 28 at 11:59PM ET/8:59PM PT.

=======

Premiere on July 6th

All 20 candidates will be present when Julie Chen announces the ALL-STARS HouseGuests on the season premiere, Thursday, July 6 at 8PM ET/PT. BIG BROTHER 7: ALL-STARS will follow the relationships and conflicts of players who live together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the HouseGuests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months, the last remaining HouseGuest will receive the Grand Prize of $500,000. While living together in a confined space won't be anything new to the HouseGuests, choosing between any pre-existing relationships and building new alliances could be a challenge. As always, CBS.com will be your destination for exciting new interactive features, along with all the hottest BIG BROTHER info, including the 24/7 live video feed, Revenge of the HouseGuests blog, episode synopses, HoH Snapshots and much more.

Viewers will be reunited with some of the most memorable, entertaining and controversial Houseguests from previous installments of Big Brother when the 20 candidates vying to compete in the all-stars edition are unveiled during BIG BROTHER ALL-STARS: AMERICA'S CHOICE.  The special primetime casting episode, which kicks off the season, will be broadcast on Wednesday, June 21 at 8:00 PM on the CBS Television Network. 

For the first time in BIG BROTHER history worldwide, viewers will have the opportunity to vote which former Houseguests should compete this season with American television viewers choosing half of the houseguests who will ultimately enter the BIG BROTHER house. 

A few hours after the casting episode is broadcast (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), viewers can cast their votes online at CBS.com.  The polls will close on Wednesday, June 28 at 11:59 PM ET/8:59 PM PT. 

Each potential "All Star" introduced on the casting episode will have their own profile on CBS.com, which will include "Why you should vote for me" text and video, as well as clips from their past appearance on BIG BROTHER. 

Additionally, throughout the voting process, candidates will be able to campaign for themselves and will be encouraged to use any reasonable means they can to state their case to America as to why they should be voted into the BIG BROTHER 7: ALL-STARS house.

During the premiere of BIG BROTHER 7: ALL-STARS, all 20 finalists will be present and awaiting the news of who will play the game.  Host Julie Chen will announce the lucky 12, who will immediately enter the house.

All-stars vie for 'Big' break
'Brother' plans casting competish
 
By JOSEF ADALIAN

 
'Big Brother'
 

CBS is shaking up the casting process for the upcoming all-star edition of summer reality staple "Big Brother."
Producers have informed 20 former players they've been selected as finalists for the all-star edition. But in something of a cruel twist -- and a first for a network reality show -- they won't know whether they've made it back into the "Big Brother" house until the show's live season premiere July 6.

What's more, would-be "all-stars" will have to campaign to get into the house, since half of this year's cast will be selected by viewers.

Eye has decided to start the process with a first-time "Big Brother" casting episode that will air Wednesday, June 21, at 8 p.m. SegSeg will feature interviews with the finalists, giving them a chance to make their case to fans.

In an "American Idol"-like twist, auds then get to choose their favorites via online voting slated to last a week. Players will lobby via the Net and through media appearances, some of which will be set up by CBS publicity as the net begins tubthumping for the official season premiere.

The top three male and female players will be guaranteed a place in the house. Remaining six slots will be filled by producers.

All 20 all-star wannabes will gather outside the "Big Brother" house on July 6. Twelve will be told they've been selected to play the game, while eight will be sent home -- all on live TV.

"They'll be all packed and ready to go," said "Big Brother" exec producer Allison Grodner, who predicts the preempreem show will contain some high drama as rejected finalists realize they're out of the competition.

Contrary to Internet buzz, players from all six past seasons of "Big Brother" will be eligible for the all-star edition. Grodner and Arnold Shapiro didn't sign on as exec producers of the Endemol USA skeinskein until season two, radically revamping the show when they arrived.

Producers opted not to cede casting of the entire show to viewers in order to ensure what Grodner calls "the right balance" of contestants. Translation: Nobody wants a house filled with just "nice" players.

"We're looking for a showdown," she said. "You've got your 'Big Brother' heroes and villains, and that's what's going to make for the best drama."

Clash of good vs. evil will be reflected throughout "Big Brother All-Stars," down to the interior design of the house, which will have elements that pay homage to past seasons' players and highlights.

Big Brother is a popular reality television format, where, over 15 weeks or so, a number of contestants (typically 12) try to avoid periodic publicly-voted evictions from a communal house and hence win a cash prize. The show, a kind of 'real life soap', was invented by John de Mol of the Netherlands and developed by his production company, Endemol. It has been a prime-time hit in almost 70 different countries, earning Endemol large sums. The show's name comes from George Orwell's 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, a dystopia in which Big Brother is the all-seeing leader.
