Big Brother Local Casting Call

(http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc289/CuteboiWill/261890_G.jpg)

WLNS TV-6, Lansing, Michigan's CBS affiliate and market news leader, announces that it will be hosting Michigan's only open casting calls for Big Brother 11.

Think you've got what it takes to live in the Big Brother house and win a half million dollars? Apply now to be on BIG BROTHER 11. Big Brother 11 Open Casting Call is Wednesday, April 1st from 5 to 8PM at Eastwood Towne Center, 3003 Preyde Boulevard, Lansing, MI 48912.

Applicants who are interested in trying to be a contestant on Big Brother 11 must be present at the Open Casting Call to be eligible. Eligibility requirements and applications are available at wlns.com. Applicants can bring their own tape to the casting call or have WLNS record one for them at the event. Specific requirements are clearly stated on the application. All applicants who choose to have WLNS record their segment, can purchase a DVD copy for $18 per copy. WLNS will deliver all applicant's tapes and applications to CBS c/o Allison Grodner Productions in the specified format. All applicants must completely fill out the application and must sign the tape log at the event.

Think you might want to show up to watch? Eastwood Towne Center will give away a $250.00 shopping spree to some lucky spectator.

"We are excited to bring this event to Lansing" said Julie Tadgerson, the local CBS Station official. "There are only a few places in the country hosting local casting calls. Lansing currently is the only place in Michigan. We have been receiving phone calls and emails from all over the country regarding the event and that's pretty exciting, considering we have not run a single promotional announcement yet. Somehow the word is getting out that WLNS in Lansing is hosting this casting call. For me personally, if I were eligible (and I am not) to try out for one of those shows it would be the Big Brother! It would the experience of a lifetime to win a half of a million dollars! That would be awesome. Plus, how often do spectators get to win a $250 shopping spree from a cool mall like Eastwood Towne Center?"

Big Brother 11
It's That Time Again!


Big Brother is now entering it's eleventh season and there is great anticipation from the fans.  Many fans have been worried for the past few seasons that Big Brother would soon end it's long run as the best reality TV show of the summer season.  Fear not Big Brother 11 is now casting and will return

Last season Big Brother made a concerted effort to turn away from what had become very extreme and returned to what had made Big Brother a success in seasons one through seven.  Last season may have been the best season ever with the under-rated Dan pairing up with Memphis and making it all the way to the end as the winner.

Most fans will surely agree last season was a season of enjoyable characters, who will ever forget Renny Martyn the eccentric hairdresser from N'Orleans, or Jessie Godderz the self possessed bodybuilder.  The list of great characters seems endless for Big Brother 11, April, Michelle, and Jerry, and the list goes on goes on beyond that.  The comparison to Big Brother 6 is indeed accurate in that both seasons were full of interesting characters with the out come of the show turning on a dime each week.

Never fear, "Big Brother" fanatics! Warmer weather is almost upon us. Big Brother 11 casting calls have begun for every one's favorite summertime guilty pleasure. There have been two casting calls announced so far with more to come:

    * California - March 28, 2009 in Los Angeles, California
    * Michigan - Wed, April 1st from 5 to 8PM at Eastwood Towne Center, 3003 Preyde Blvd. Lansing, MI 48912.

If you feel you are what Big Brother is looking for head on out to one of the auditions, if not get ready to enjoy another season of Big Brother.

 :waves:  Hey all you Big Brother fans who want to apply for the show, Chenbot just told everyone on the Early Show to WAVE YOUR FREAK FLAG when you go to tryout. Don't hold back!  :funny: 




Freak Flag
   
A characteristic, mannerism, or appearance of a person, either subtle or overt, which implies unique, eccentric, creative, adventurous or unconventional thinking.

David Crosby refers to long hair as a freak flag in his song Almost Cut My Hair. "I feel like letting my freak flag fly."

 

Freak Flag    
   
Letting loose, being down with your cool self, especially in front of a group of strangers. Your inner freak, that wants to come out, but often is supressed, from social anxiety.



Freak Flag
   
 Your inner party animal. "Letting your freak flag fly" means acting wild, crazy.

Hi Blondie! Good to see you! Love your avatar...

Thanks for the update (I think)!

Can't say I particularly like the sounds of this though...what ever happened to regular people playing a strategy game??

Oh yeah...I forgot...this is BB.... :groan:

Big Brother 11 Casting on Early Show

Written by Brian Scheffler March 19, 2009 (2 hours ago)

 
Casting for the 11th season of Big Brother was featured on CBS’ The Early Show Thursday morning. Continue reading for the video.

Casting Director Robyn Kass, Mike Boogie (BB7), and Brian Hart (BB11) joined Julie Chen in Los Angeles to talk about casting for BB11. They discussed tips for sending in an audition tape. Robyn suggests to not have any regrets in your audition and to “wave your freak flag.” Mike says “Big Brother looks more fun than it actually is.”

Julie and Robyn encouraged all interested Big Brother hopefuls to fill out an application and submit a video audition.

Julie has been known to throw out general statements about the show that aren't always true. She probably just said 10 with nothing really to back it up.

the ONLY reason I have high hopes for this season is because it's the first time since BB8 that we've had 10 months in between seasons, so hopefully they came up with a really good twist and get a cast that is not anywhere near as boring as the BB10 cast.

An interesting article:  :res:

'Big Brother' coming to Tampa seeking narcissists

To some, it may sound like the eighth circle of Hell.

But if you're attracted to the idea of living for 100 days under 24-hour observation on national TV in a makeshift house on a studio lot with a handful of other attention-seeking nobodies, CBS has got a proposition for you.

Producers of the network's unscripted competition Big Brother are coming to town, casting for the show's 11th (?!) cycle beginning noon Saturday at Beef O'Brady's, 10029 W Hillsborough Avenue, Tampa.

Sarasota native and Big Brother 9 alum "Crazy James" Zinkand is an attention hog, previously known for videotaping a friend who jumped off the roof of a Sarasota resort into the pool and missed.

His audition advice, delivered by e-mail Monday: "They totally need stories. That is what you do mainly in the house is tell your past and what you want to do in your future. … Be proud of who you are. Wether (sic) it be the whitest redneck to grace this earth or the most flamboyant Drag Queen, tell them your issues and your struggles but tell them how you can overcome them all."

The local stop falls midway through a 25-city casting tour, ranging from New York City to Flowood, Miss. (I don't know where it is, either).

CBS officials suggest you bring ID — you need to prove you're over age 21 and a U.S. citizen — and be prepared to tell a camera why you should be on the show. Eventually, 40 finalists will be flown to Los Angeles for a week of auditions, where aspiring contestants prove they can handle repeated questioning from Big Brother's wooden host, animatronic Early Show newsreader Julie Chen.

The winner gets $500,000, two runnersup also get cash, and everybody else gets a stipend that Entertainment Weekly recently reported was about $750 a week. Not bad pay for lounging around a prefab home and starting fights with some of the biggest narcissists on the planet.

ig Brother' in Big Country

Michael Tomlin already has a taste of Hollywood, and now he wants more.

The 21-year-old college student from The Colony was in Abilene on Thursday for a casting call for the 11th season of the CBS reality show "Big Brother."

"My life is a reality show," Tomlin said.

Thursday's casting call at The Mall of Abilene was one of only two in Texas (the other was in Austin) for this summer's production of "Big Brother," which follows a group of strangers living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones. Their every move is recorded 24/7. One by one the house guests will vote each other out until at the end of three months, the last remaining person will win $500,000.

"That would pay for medical school," said Tomlin, a junior at Texas Tech University.

"Big Brother" is shown locally on KTAB-TV. Saundra Carriker, local sales manager at KTAB, said Abilene's CBS station chose to conduct the casting call as a promotional event for the station, the city and the mall, which was a co-sponsor for Thursday's auditions.

In addition to Tomlin, early Thursday afternoon there were applicants from Abilene, Baird, San Angelo, Tulsa, Okla., and Dyess Air Force Base.

"It's a promotional event we chose to participate in with CBS," Carriker said. "We're glad we got to do it. It's kind of fun. It's a positive, upbeat event. Everyone is having fun, and it brings people together."

Applicants completed an extensive information form and recorded a two-minute video, telling producers of "Big Brother" why he or she should be selected.

Tomlin, a transfer from Trinity University, is a health exercise and sports science major at Tech. He played football three seasons for the Tigers, and he was involved in the "Mississippi Miracle," a 15-lateral play Oct. 27, 2007, that gave the team the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship.

It was the play that attracted Tomlin to Hollywood. It was nominated for an ESPY award, and Tomlin and other players and coaches were on hand for the award program presented by ESPN.

A friend told him about Thursday's casting call in Abilene, so he stopped in Abilene on his drive home from Lubbock to The Colony for Easter weekend.

"I think I've watched every episode of the show," he said. "I've always wanted to be on it, but I never thought I would get a chance. It would be fun to be on the show with everyone. And I love L.A. It would beat working this summer.

Carriker and her staff will assemble Thursday's videos and applications to send to CBS. Carriker said people have until May 4 to send applications and introduction videos to CBS (by mail or online on the CBS Web site).

'Big Brother' Auditions Draw 100s
One Potential Cast Member Emphasizes 'Drama' He Would Bring


PHOENIX -- Hundreds of budding television stars lined up inside Dos Gringos Mexigrill in Chandler, hoping to be part of the cast for the 11th season of the CBS reality show Big Brother.

All the cast members had different reason why he or she should land a spot on the show.

"Well, I have the personality; I'm pretty fun; I like to have a good time," said one person. "Stuck in a house with a bunch of people -- why not? I'm a people person."

Another man emphasized the potential conflicts he could create.

"I think I will bring an immense amount of drama," he said. "More drama than CBS or this show has ever seen."

The open casting call ran from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Reality TV finding stars in Chandler

(http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc289/CuteboiWill/svbe1s2z.jpg)

Ryan Linford knows someone who knows someone who’s on a reality TV show. The Chandler information technology specialist has no interest in exposure, or even in watching people he knows on the relatively unscripted dramas.

“I’d rather watch a real show,” he said.

However, for Linford and many others living and working in Chandler, the degrees of separation between regular folks and temporarily famous reality television stars are shrinking fast.

Aspiring entertainers no longer must transport themselves to the California coast. They now audition for national shows across America, hours or minutes from home.

Chandler is increasingly among the cities serving as Hollywood’s understudy.

On Saturday, the CBS reality show “Big Brother” held one of its 11 open casting calls in Chandler.

The cable network, TV Land, made Chandler High School’s graduating class of 1988 the subject of its reality series, “High School Reunion.”

A few years ago, when NBC resurrected the obstacle course extravaganza “American Gladiator,” recruiters searched out potential spandex warriors in the city known more for computer chips than fitness.

Linford and his wife, Erin, are friends with a Chandler High alum whose classmates were on “Reunion.”

“It’s really funny to see these people he went to high school with all on TV,” said Erin Linford.

But what makes Chandler — a Phoenix suburb, less hip than Tempe and less glitzy than Scottsdale — a veritable hotbed for reality stars?

“That’s a very good question,” said Shawn Mitchell, chief executive at HNE Casting in Los Angeles, which specializes in booking reality shows.

Mitchell has seen Chandler listed on a number of casting calls but said he isn’t sure what draws reality show producers to the East Valley.

People-watching at Chandler Fashion Center on Friday, Paul Rossi speculated that the passers-by might be luring casting agents.

“Definitely, they’re good looking,” Rossi said.

Chandler, more than other Valley cities, is a desirable locale to find cast members, he said. “Scottsdale is full of posers.”

But sorry, Chandlerites. Reality shows are not specifically looking for you and your neighbors.

The arrival of “Big Brother” in Chandler was a coincidence.

Carly Ullinskey, casting producer for the CBS show, said she needed a good venue to house hundreds of potential television personalities. As an Arizona native, Ullinskey knew the managers at Dos Gringos, a local chain of Mexican cantinas, and arranged to use their Chandler restaurant.

“It’s not necessarily a city or a type of people, because people might even come in from Colorado for this open call,” Ullinskey said. Some drive nine hours to audition.

Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe and Phoenix have all also hosted auditions for a slew of programs, including NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” Fox’s “American Idol” and MTV’s “The Real World.”

Valley residents have repeatedly made their way onto reality show casts since the genre came to dominate prime time a decade ago.

That likely has much to do with the Valley’s rocketing population growth. The resulting buzz of new residents has given Phoenix and its surrounding cities a higher profile nationally, Ullinskey said, which puts it on casting agents’ list of places to visit.

“We don’t want an entire show of everyone from one city,” she said. “We want to get the entire United States represented in the show.”

Without a hometown advantage, Chandler residents need to find other ways to boost their reality show appeal. “Big Brother” hopefuls must complete a 13-page questionnaire more resembling an FBI background check than a job application.

Producers want all the basic information — name, gender, Facebook address.

Then they delve deeper.

Do you get along with your Mom? When was the last time you faced aggravated assault charges? What’s your swimsuit size?

And there is the standard inquiry: “Are there any nude or other revealing or compromising images of you that are available publicly either through the Internet, video or otherwise?”

Personality and individuals’ world view are what count most for reality shows, Mitchell said.

“A lot of the time they’re looking to mix it up instead of just big city folks all the time,” he said. “They want diversity between small-town people, with different outlooks on life.”

Which is, of course, why the application asks for swimsuit size.

(http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc289/CuteboiWill/robyn_kass.jpg)

Want to be on Big Brother?  Ever wonder who picks those house guests?  What does the casting director look for? 

Our interviewer, Yana,  took  theses questions, and many more,  to Robyn Kass,  the casting director for Big Brother.  Casting for Big Brother 11 began during the final week of Big Brother 10 and is still going strong.  With applications and video tape submissions being due by May 4, 2009 . Applicants chosen to be a finalist will go to Los Angeles, CA from which applicants will be narrowed down to a pool of forty finalists.  The first open casting call for the season will be held in Lansing, Michigan by local CBS affiliate WLNS-TV on April 1, 2009.  Various open casting calls will be conducted across the nation including Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, Waverly, IA, and Columbus, OH.

Robyn: Hi fans!  Thank you so much for watching BB and for all these questions!   Please understand, there are some things I can’t answer because of confidentiality and my contract, but I’ll answer as much as I can!

Cajunboiler: What is the most ridiculous casting video that you have ever seen?

Robyn: Wow, there have so many throughout the years I don’t think I can pick just one!  I’ve seen a lot of drunk videos, a lot of naked videos, a lot of great parody videos…. They’re all pretty entertaining!

Has any contestant acted completely opposite on the show than they did in their casting videos?

Robyn: We get a pretty good gage of how people are going to act in the house during casting, but sure, there are always surprises!

TVRocks17: What's the craziest idea for a season or twist that has ever came up over the past 10-11 years?

Robyn: As much as I’d love to discuss twists, under contract I can’t- sorry.

What has been your favorite season?

Robyn: That’s a tough question.  I definitely have favorite moments in every season, but it’s a little like “Sophie’s Choice” I can’t choose just one overall season as a favorite. J

If you were offered the chance to play the game. Would you do it and if so what would would be your strategy?

Robyn: HA!  Great question.  Wow, I don’t know. I know how difficult the house is and I’m not sure I could make it to the end.  Maybe I would on a smaller scale…. Ie- shorter time frame.  Could I cast who would be in the house with me???  J  If so, then YES!  As for strategy, I would go in with a very lose strategy, but I’d have to adapt to the situation as the game plays out.  I always tell people, you can never forget you’re playing a game from the second you enter to the second you leave.

If someone was trying to get on the show which would be the best way by sending in a videotape/application or just going to an open casting call?

Robyn: Well, it really doesn’t matter.  Believe it or not, we do watch every single tape that comes in- EVERY ONE!  That being said, sometimes people are more natural at an open call OR they might be more nervous, so there are pros and cons to both.

Do you have a favorite moment from a past season?

Robyn: I have many.  Probably the same moments as all viewers….

Season 2- Classic BB moment – Shannon cleaning the toilet with Hardy’s toothbrush.

Season 3-  Watching Danielle (freezing)  and Lisa in the pool at the end of the game. Of course Marcellas turning down the golden veto will go down in history.

Season 4- The moment the EXs walked in the house.

Season 5 - The twin reveal!  And the look on Cowboy’s face when he realized Nakomis was his sister!

Season 6 – The moment Kaysar revealed to Maggie he figured out the twist and was gunning to get Eric out.

Season 7- The moment Erika and Janelle realized they were both being lied to by Chilltown. On the flip side, I loved watching Mike and Will lie to everyone in the pantry.

Season 8- I loved watching all of the America’s Player challenges play out- ie: Eric getting in bed with Joe!  Also, nothing beats Jen crying over her wall picture- priceless moment!

Season 9- The very first challenge of season 9 was one of my favorites…. Where they had to hang upside down holding onto their partners. Also loved when Natalie miscounted the amount of letters in the alphabet “  Y and Z”!

Season 10-  Between Jesse and Renny… I have a million favorite season 10 moments!

See, I truly am a fan!

Do you still speak too any past HGs?

Robyn: Absolutely!  I consider all of them friends of mine.  I speak to some more regularly than others, but when they come to town they’ll usually call me and try to hook up for a bite to eat.

uvp: When is the premiere of BB11?

Robyn: I don’t have the exact date yet.

These are just general questions from Yana, just things I thought people might like to know.

When doing casting calls or reviewing an audition tape, what is the things you look for that you know will make a good game player, and a good TV Character?

Robyn: I’m sure you’ve heard this a lot… I look for the “it” quality.  Someone who just pops…. Someone memorable, it could be the way they talk or laugh or the way they tell stories, maybe it’s their interesting background.  There’s no one thing I look for, but if I can’t remember a specific person 3 days later that probably means they didn’t leave a lasting, unique impression on me.  As far as game play, I just want people in the house who love the game. Of course it helps if they’re fans of the show, but we’ve had great game players who have never seen the show, but most of all we want people who want to get to the end and win.

There are so many fan sites around, and many of them have asked to have a fan sites edition, where you could cast a person or a few people from each of the most popular sites and let them play the game, have you ever considered this option for a twist?

Robyn: Nope, this has never come up.  We do cast a lot of hardcore fans of BB on the show.  I wouldn’t cast someone specifically from any fan websites.

Will there be an All Stars 2?

Robyn: I have no idea….

Do you like working with Alison?

Robyn: Allison is fantastic!  We’ve definitely been through “the trenches” together many, many years!  If we didn’t get along, it would never work.

How much longer do you see the show being on the air, as you can pretty much guess, we here at Morty's LOVE the show, and a lot of us wouldn't want the show to ever end, but that's not realistic, the show has been on for 11 years this summer, and it seems to still be going strong, so do you think there will be at least 2 or three more years?

Robyn: Well, if you asked me this question during season 3 I probably would have never guessed it would continue to season 11!  I love casting the show, I love watching the show and I’ll stay on it as long as the network keeps it going!

Will there be another winter season, or was that just a season done because of the writers strike?

Robyn: I don’t make those decisions…. No idea.

My mom is 71 years old, my Sister in Law is in her 50's, I am 40 years old, my niece is in her 30's, and her daughters are in their teens, we are all fans of Big Brother.  Did you know that the show was so popular with so many age groups?

Love hearing stories like that!  Thanks!

We want to thank you for the interview and for casting the show. We have had many years of enjoyment, and wish many more.

TVWeek is a legit site Michael, right up there with B&C, good find  :tup:

Quote
"Big Brother" fans, mark your calendars: The madness begins again Thursday, July 9.

That's the date CBS has set for the 11th season premiere of summer's longest-running reality tradition. The network isn't talking, but two people familiar with the matter confirmed the scheduling.

What's not certain is whether CBS also plans to continue the show's recent Thursday-Sunday-Tuesday air pattern. It might want to wait until its fall schedule is finalized, since CBS likes to move existing shows into their new fall timeslots over the summer, letting "Brother" fill in the holes left by dead or relocated shows.

One caveat: If CBS makes any radical schedule changes Wednesday, it's possible the July 9 premiere date could change. But it's not likely.

Let the countdown begin.

(Full disclosure: I originally posted the date as Thursday, July 7. Which might be true … on a year when July 7 is a Thursday, not a Tuesday. The dangers of late-night blogging, example 283…).

A new commercial that is worthless aired! ( I think CBS saw that Peach was saying she wasn't excited, so decided to deliver the message to her.)

I found this:

Quote
Get Ready for the crazy, zany, outrageous Big Brother Reality Show, due to debut July 5th, 2009. Big Brother has announced that the casting is done. The show will air, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.  Start the Big Brother return countdown. I am hoping CBS has selected a good cast of characters like they had on Survivor Tocantins. Diffrent personalities and not folks that are re-creating the Donato’s, Dr Will’s, Keysar, Janelle’s, Howie’s etc……..

Cheers

I think they're just guessing because I haven't seen July 5th confirmed anywhere ...

We can add another date to the "official start date list"

TV grape vine is listing the starting date as Tuesday July 7th.

So far I've seen July 5th, 7th, 9th, and 12th.

There was an ad posted on craigslist, and although it doesn't say that it's for Big Brother it's kind of obvious.

I think in my opinion, they are rushing things this time due to Julie's pregnancy.....I have a gut feeling it's gonna start on the 5th so that the finale will take place on Sept 8th, a full month before she is due. That makes perfect sense to me. What do you all think?

I think it's way to early to even try and predict the finale date. We don't even know how many house guests there are or what kind of twists are in store for the summer.

Even though no official release has been issued yet, I have been seeing lots of speculation lately that it's going to start on Sunday, the 5th. I am still trying with very little patience waiting for the official word on when it's starting.

I got the new issue of the TV Guide in the mail today and it features the Summer Preview and here is what it said about BB11: (On page 39)

Big Brother 11 (July, CBS) Thirteen strangers spend a three-month sentence in the big house. Expectant mom Julie Chen returns as host.

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The 11th season of "Big Brother" will premiere Thursday, July 9 at 8:00/7:00c on CBS, network sources confirmed to the site this afternoon.

The series will then continue on Sundays at 8:00/7:00c and Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c, a slight deviation from last summer's initial schedule of Sundays at 8:00/7:00c, Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c and Wednesdays at 8:00/7:00c. (Two weeks later, the latter edition moved to Thursdays at 8:00/7:00c in place of "Greatest American Dog.")

Meanwhile, "The Big Bang Theory," "The Mentalist" and "How I Met Your Mother" are set to move to their new fall homes starting next month.

"The Mentalist" will shift to Thursdays at 10:00/9:00c beginning June 4. Repeats will still continue in its old Tuesday, 9:00/8:00c home until "Big Brother" takes over on July 14.

"Big Bang" likewise will jump to Mondays at 9:30/8:30c starting June 8 with "Mother" assuming the 8:00/7:00c slot on June 22. "Rules of Engagement" will fill out the night at 8:30/7:30c.

In addition, "48 Hours Mystery" will expand to twice a week starting June 2 with episodes airing Tuesdays at 10:00/9:00c and Saturdays at 10:00/9:00c.

Probably around July 1st -- since it starts July 9th the HGs will most likely move in July 4th or 5th, so they should be sequestered by the 30th of June for press and stuff.

05.28.2009 "BIG BROTHER" TO PREMIERE THURSDAY, JULY 9 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

BIG BROTHER will return for its 11th installment on Thursday, July 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.  Following the premiere, BIG BROTHER will be broadcast three nights weekly, beginning Sunday, July 12  (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Tuesday, July 14 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and the LIVE eviction show, hosted by Julie Chen, beginning Thursday, July 16 (8:00–9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT). 

 

            BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living 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.

 

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

I think there is going to be 13 house guests again (hopefully with 1 more girl than guy).

There are 10 evictions if you count the Thursdays leading up to the finale and the Tuesday that the F4 is usually evicted at. Then, if you add a FF episode, that makes 11 evictions.

(unless there is a double eviction week, which could be possible. . . I'm just speculating)

News, Updates, Rumors & Speculation.....

FACT:

CBS announced yesterday that they are pushing up The Primetime Emmy Awards by a week. It was originally scheduled for Sunday, Sept 20th and now will air on the 13th. The Emmys is a three hour show.

RUMORS/SPECULATION:

Now that the Emmys are airing on the 13th and that is the night where Big Brother would normally air a recap of the season prior to the finale on Tuesday.....now the rumor has it going at this:
 
Big Brother will shorten the season by a week and air the finale on Tuesday the 8th instead of the 15th. Speculation has it going one of two ways

A) smaller cast

or

B) 13 houseguests again with two double evictions

I hope we hear more concrete information soon as we are fast approaching to the premiere which is only 37 days away.

With the premiere on July 9, the HGs will probably move in on July 3 or 4.  So they will be sequestered around June 29 or 30, which is when they should be revealed.

this has been out for a while now... i just didn't post it since it doesn't really matter for us fans if there is or isn't one.

and I don't think BB will be short. I think people are just jumping to conclusions.

Just found this, in regards to the Emmys being pushed up, it's thanks to football.  Ooohh TAR fans have a new reason to hate the NFL if this ends up messing up the end of the BB schedule as well  :knuckles:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31052756/


Also I just remembered something random.  A few months ago had dinner with a friend from college that lives in LA now.  He and a bunch of other people from school went out there for tv/film production jobs.  He knows someone that interns for BB, or at least had in the past.  The guy said it was the worst job ever!  12 hour shifts and having to sit there and watch them sleep. And to attempt to not make any noise inside the walls. 

So when it's time to sit at the computer and watch them, remember at least it's better than being there in person  :jumpy: :jumpy:

btw, EW ranks the top 20 reality shows and BB come in # 15

20 Best Reality-TV Shows Ever

15. BIG BROTHER (CBS, 2000-present)
The contestants may be lewd, crude, and often reprehensible (your legacy is secure, Evel Dick), but BB is a voyeuristic hoot because it so delightfully embraces its cheesiness. You know a show can laugh at itself when even the host, Julie Chen (left), revels in her not-so-flattering nickname, ''the Chenbot.''
Best season: 2 The egomaniacal Will ''Dr. Evil'' Kirby wins — after repeatedly warning everyone that he is a lying bastard.

New feature for the BB11 live feeds:

Speaking of juicy, I made a promise a couple days ago about some new info, and I just got the go ahead to reveal some of it. ;)

First up, yes! We we will have the early bird deal available for you again, right here on BBDish. Pretty soon, actually. OK.. now on the the big stuff...

Feeders!! Hold on to your hats. The fine folks at real have made some really cool improvements to the live feeds interface. You're gonna love it! I already do.

Here's what I know so far... My favorite improvement is gonna be called either the Calendar or the Flashback or the Time Machine, and while you may already be getting the gist of it just from the name, allow me to explain how it's gonna work.

Let's say some HG's head explodes while you're at work, you'll be able to plug in the time it happened, and go back to view it. Let's say the HoH reveal is taking too long, and you've just got to go to sleep. No problem. Just plug in the time you want, or the time your ever loving dishchicks have told you to look for, and poof, there you are.

Let's say you're reading the overnight report, and while we've posted screencaps of HGx and HGy getting busy or getting caught coming out of the shower or having a big fight, pics just aren't enough for you. You want to see how it all happened! Now you can, right there within the Big Brother Interface on Superpass.

So, per the instructions, you pick a month and day, select an hour to view, select a camera and click submit. Easy, peasy, done!

There are also pictures of a new feed design here:

a) They will be doing The Amazing Race
b) They will be doing the exit interviews on BB11
c) They will be doing Survivor
d) They will be doing something on Real Player

    EMMY(R) AWARDS MOVED BACK TO SUNDAY, SEPT. 20

The 61st PRIMETIME EMMY® AWARDS has been re-scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 20 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"After we announced plans for September 13, MTV informed us they were locked into the same day for the Video Music Awards, with venue and sponsorship agreements in place. We had the flexibility to move; they didn't," said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events, CBS Entertainment. "It's best for the industry and the audience that these events not compete against each other. Huge thanks to the Television Academy and Don Mischer for quickly moving mountains to make this happen. If the Emmy broadcast has as much excitement as the scheduling of the date, viewers are in for an unforgettable event."

"We appreciate CBS and the Television Academy taking on the mammoth task of moving such a huge event as the Emmy's to accommodate the Video Music Awards. Now audiences will get to experience two phenomenal nights of entertainment," said Stephen Friedman, General Manager of MTV.

To present the 61st PRIMETIME EMMY® AWARDS as close as possible to its scheduled 8:00 PM start, 60 MINUTES (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) is planning a flexible broadcast following CBS Sports late afternoon NFL game.

The 61st PRIMETIME EMMY® AWARDS is being produced by Don Mischer Productions. Nominations for the 61st PRIMETIME EMMY® AWARDS will be announced July 16 at 5:40 AM, PT from the Television Academy's Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood.

the audince from season 10 will come back now i done see anything house nxt door but still look

Big Brother 11 and the 24/7 live feeds will NOT be broadcast in high-definition. Several Big Brother websites are reporting that BB11 and the live feeds will be broadcast in HD. After speaking with Real Networks and a Showtime representative, it became clear that there was some confusion circulating regarding a previous message from Real Networks.

Real Networks plans on testing its Helix streaming technology for Big Brother. This platform can support HD streaming. However, the cameras in the Big Brother house have not been upgraded or replaced for HD viewing.

Showtime did say that they might upconvert, or stretch, the standard-definition signal coming from the house to fill the HD screen for Showtime’s HD viewers. But this will not increase the quality of the picture because the cameras are still operating in 4×3 standard-definition.

However, Real’s Helix streaming allows fortimeshifting and multi-camera viewing in realtime.  This means that for Big Brother 11, Real plans on rolling out a “Flashback” feature to allow users to enter a specific date and time and the feeds will rewind to that point.  Additionally, viewers can see thumbnail previews of each of the house feeds at all times.  More details will be released soon about these new features.



Big Brother 11 Cast Rumors

It's almost time for Big Brother 11! I bet you are looking forward to Big Brother 11 for the summer of 2009! I know I am! Have you heard the rumor that the Big Brother 11 cast is going to be made up of a combination of past Big Brother House Guests and new contestants? Of course this is about the time when we hear this type of rumor each year.

Big Brother 11 features 13 "houseguests" that agree to live with one another for several months while being filmed 24/7 and being broadcast on Internet live feeds. After various competitions and reward challenges, each week one houseguest wins the Head of Household and must nominate two fellow houseguests for eviction.  The remaining contestants vote and each week one person is evicted from the Big Brother house until one winner remains.

The BB house is completed. Julie Chen was shooting footage this week with the producer, Allison Grodner, touring the house and talking about the coming season which probably will air after the houseguests are sequestered.

Today is the BB press day at the house. A group of selected journalists will spend a good part of the day in the house and have a pretend Fast it Forward competition.

The houseguests should be starting their sequester sometime next weekend!

Hard to believe but we only got 20 more days!

Allison Grodner (Executive Producer) was interviewed this morning on the John Jay & Rich Show and spilled a few interesting tidbits. You can listen to the full interview here.

Here's a rundown of the more interesting stuff from the interview.

- Allison Grodner says that there were alot of interesting people in the house for media day who work in television, print, internet media, etc. "Some fun people, really interesting." She says that the footage will be released shortly. This means we should be seeing the new house soon.

- The entire cast has been chosen. "Everyone is in. We've got a cast, we've got the twist, the new house. It's exciting."

- More on the twist: "I can tell you that this season is different. The twist this season is unique, as always. It is incredibly relatable. I think everyone will be able to identify with this twist. That is all I can tell you. There's also something else happening on premiere night that's unprecedented that will be alot of fun. You're going to hear more and more about this as we approach the premiere date." Allison says that she can't release any information about the twist until the cast is in sequester, but as soon as they're under lock and key, all the information will be revealed.

- More on the house: "The house is gorgeous. It's a modern house this season, and we're going green. Eco-friendly." (Eh... I'm not so sure about this, LoL)

- Julie Chen will be hosting all season, despite her pregnancy. Allison jokes that Chenbot's baby will be the surprise 14th houseguest. (Interesting that she mentions 14 houseguests since we've been told there will only be 12...)

Scoop or Rumor?  BB11 House Decor


      A staffer from The Insider won the media game. They played all the regular competitions plus a new one that had something to do with the house.

      Spa room and all bedrooms except HOH were locked off. Kitchen table looks like a canopy tree. Whole kitchen/dining area looks like a forest (?) with fake grass from the backyard as "carpet.

      Living room has huge rocking chairs that recline. No couch. A huge triangular tank (at least 8 ft. tall) is nestled in the corner and filled with jelly fish. Textured walls sparkle different colors like fiber-optic. It looks "crazy."

      Bathroom looks like a public restroom with urinals along the wall, but they don't work. Green tile floors. Shower doors are completely see-through with only enough curtain to cover one side at a time.
     
      Sinks are motion-censored and only give small amounts of water at a time. HG's will have to trigger the sensor "at least 20 times" to even wash their hands. The showers are the same way. Walls are dark orange.

      Upstairs hall is asian-inspired with dragons on the wall and hanging globes. Sofa is like a giant leather bean bag in the shape of a circular couch.

      Backyard has a fountain. NO washer but there is a dryer. There's also a picnic table. New mural looks like a forest.

      I don't think this house sounds modern or green at all, except for the bathroom. Maybe the bedrooms?? lol

If the description of the house I posted earlier is true, I don't like the sound of it. I'm guessing the fountain outside is where the hg's will wash their clothes since it said there is no washer.

So far these are the confirmed and the suspected participants. I'll be adding to this list as more names become known.

Confirmed:
Jen Johnson from BB8, for MSN

Fact or Fiction? Latest rumor......

Twist leaked from someone at Endemol Productions?

Posted on Jokers and now popping up on myspace and most likely on facebook, too

I'm a little hesitant to post this, as I'm sure I'll get some hate/disbelief claims, but it's certainly pertinent!

One of my old college buddies has a job with EndemolUSA out in Cali, and while he isn't doing any work on Big Brother 11, he said he was pretty sure of some stuff going on in this season.

Initially I had taken everything he said with a grain of salt, but he had already told me that they decided to "do the house very green and ecofriendly," and now that that has proven to be true, I've taken his other big claim more seriously. I'm still considering this speculation, but it sounds VERY plausible.

The twist? Here is a summary of what I have been told... CBS is making all of their shows cut back on their budget and saving where necessary (the economy blah blah blah), and this year, the twist is that when all the houseguests enter the house, they're being told that the prize money this year is ZERO DOLLARS. And now, instead, they'll have to build the prize money as they go along.

Now I don't know if that means they'll have to raise it in challenges, or by going without certain items in the house or whatever, and "Jim" (we'll call my source that) didn't know much beyond that. I assume the max they could get is the standard 500,000... but who knows.
Title: Re: BIG BROTHER 11 News
Post by: michael on June 22, 2009, 09:39:16 AM
I'm going to say false.

A lot of people will probably believe it to be true though, just like last season when everyone was sure that there was some twist involving mirrors and a secret room, lol...

I am hoping it's false, too because I can see it now if it is true, the hg's will be bitchin' all season about it.
Title: Re: BIG BROTHER 11 News
Post by: RealityFreakWill on June 22, 2009, 09:58:33 AM
Just thought of it, even if by a remote chance the twist is true, I'm glad it got leaked out now since the houseguests are not sequestered yet and they are most likely to hear of the rumor and CBS and the show will have no choice but to drop the twist or change it somehow, know what I mean.......I dunno!

Over at Reality BBQ the same guy (although varification of the poster is still being checked) who always posts correct info before the season started posted this:

The House Guests enter the house on July 5th.

As far as the twist, I’ll ask you a question. What clique were you part of in High School?

update: over at RBBQ they have confirmed that the poster is infact the same Corneroffice pster who posts before every season..

omg ew ... I don't like this twist:

Quote
First up, we have a theme throughout the house this year – called “The Have and The Have-Not’s”. You should be able to get the general idea regarding what that’s about from the name.

Now to much talked about High School theme that has caused various rumors to spread out over the internet. Here is how it will work:

Big Brother has cast people who they believe represent some typical high school stereotypes. However, it will not be Big Brother pairing them up. Once they enter the house, they will be told to form the cliques themselves – Big Brother will not force them together like Big Brother 9. In other words, Big Brother could have cast someone that they see as a Jock but the houseguests could decide that they are a “geek” instead.

Once these cliques are formed, they will play as teams for a while, but they will eventually split off into individuals and play the Big Brother Game by themselves

When I looked at this new commercial with Julie and possibly the new house, if you pause it while it is in the green and yellow living room, you can see the eviction board in the right hand corner. I counted 14 squares on there. Maybe there are 12 strangers and 2 coming back from a previous season.  :duno: :duno:  


Anybody else see that?

Kitchen is oriental theme

Spiral staircase painted orange

No fake urinals in bathroom and sink and shower work normally, not sensored by hand

No fountain in BY, and there is a washer, new patio furniture and a mural on walls

Two purplish couches and two green chairs for nominees in LR

No jellyfish tank in corner

Spa room is  an excerise room again with two bikes to pedal on and the lights are attached to it, the faster you pedal, the brighter the light is

One bedroom is generally painted red with tall headboards, no theme there, an open room with no doors

Other bedroom has a swimming pool theme

third bedroom was locked off to media due to twist?

Upstairs balcony has a sage green couch and the chessboard is there

HOH room still has spyscreen and one wall is mainly glass?  HOH bathroom has a surfboard hanging on one wall

BY still has pool, hot tub and pool table

I agree, the official pictures will probably make it look a lot better as well.

Some things might have changed since this took place. I remember for the BB9/BB10 media day videos that both houses had some changes after the media day was complete.

   Short Blob about BB11
This just a short blog, I only have a minute

I have to say I am not impressed with the houseguests. Hopefully they will be more interesting in person then they are in their Bio's. Also Robyn, I am so dissapointed that you brought back another sterotypical Bitchy Fag, I really thought BB had moved past that, I think everyone is really, really over that character!

Mystery Houseguest, LOL... Recycled theme means Recycled Housguest, how boring is that!! And by the way, why is it that my friends such as Jessica BB8, Sheila BB9 and Brian BB10 have mysteriously dissappeared??? If you guys read this contact me I am worried, it is as if you have taken somewhere that has no communication with the outside world????

I was hoping BB would make it long enough to have an another All Stars that I could possibly try out for, but with this lack of originality and brining back those same boring personality types, this will surely be the last year...

Who went to this party, anybody know?


I knew there were going to be more than 12!  I still am thinking Sheila.  Maybe there will be a few past HG and they will compete or something to get to stay. Or maybe we get to vote who we want to stay, or maybe the 12 strangers get to vote who they want to stay.

The first HOH will be a former HG. Each clique is assigned one. The HG don't know who they're getting. Who are they? One of them had a showmance. Another was almost an All Star.

 :duno:  that could be Jessica (showmance)  and M Reynolds(almost an all star)  he almost did the all star show. Sheila would do it in a heartbeat and so would Brian.   Four more days of speculations!   :wohoo:

:groan:  I hate the fact they are bringing back people!! :groan:  i thought jessica had a baby so why would she leave it home, Brian.. well i  have had enough of his 15 mins of fame all last season, Sheila.. please noooo!!, eric.. well he became too cocky for my liking and it would be horrible if both him and jessica were back on the show together..just think of more "beer pong"!!! Jen well everyone will try and "out do ED"  and maliciously taunt her, and there aren't to many other's from past shows that would be remembered as much.. besides the all stars cast. 

 (:;) (:;) (:;) (:;) (:;) darn you BB!

Jessica does not have a baby. She recently ended her engagement to another guy, hooked up with someone else but have since broken up. She is currently single.

Jen was part of the media day and is reporting for MSN.

If four are being brought back, I think it's Sheila, Brian, Jessica and Eric.

I agree with everyone saying they are disappointed in BB for bringing past HGs back.  They always overshadow the new cast.  I hope these guys just vote out whoever it is ASAP, so they can have their own season!

Rumor mill still has the four former hg's as:

Brian (as corneroffice stated, the new HOH likes to stir up drama and was a guy from BB10)

Sheila (corneroffice stated one was almost an all-star, and I think he meant that she came in 2nd for America's Choice prize)

Jessica & Eric (corneroffice stated there was a former showmance and those two are the ones)


I'm hoping corneroffice will post another spoiler telling us who the four are.

 hi Will!! :waves: Thanks for all the info and corrections to my posting!!

I coulda swarn jessica looked prego when she was in some previous pics but good for her if she's making better choices these days!

 but again.. eric and jessica together :dance:  playing as teammate mole like to each come in as winners i would assume..

and i'm sure the collective therory amongst the new HG's would be " they had their chance lets get them out.(well that would be mine!! :funny: )

need  i say anything about sheila cept she'll be doing all the cooking and cleaning!   :hellkitchen

Oh my god.....I don't think it's Brian, it's Jessie!

Michelle posted a status msg on FB.......Rooting for JESSIE.....HOH! WOO HOO!

She then took down the message like five minutes later. Glad I caught it. Maybe she got worried she'll get in trouble or something.

Michelle just commented on her message saying she heard the rumor of Jessie being back but can't confirm it. So for all we know, it could still be Brian.

The rumor mill is on overdrive on the internet.

That's not saying much is it.  We don't even know if it is someone that was on BB previously.

If someone has asked this already, I apologize, but do we know the mystery guest will be a former houseguest or is it possible it could be someone from another Cbs reality show like Tar, Survivor, etc?x

Post by: yecal59 on July 08, 2009, 01:19:41 PM
We don't know for sure who it is.  I think all we do know is that it's someone we will recognize, but not necessarily from Big Brother. 

Can't wait for tomorrow!!   :jumpy:

This was on realitybbq.....thanks realitybbq! It was written by Steven BB10

(they do not list their source)........

Well I have been ever so patiently awaiting the arrival of BB11, see the new house, houseguests etc.  If you read my first blog I said I wasn’t too happy with the houseguests, mainly because of the stereotypical gay guy that they brought back on.  I have to say that I was probably too judgemental on the show and who they picked, I am sure it is a tough job (Robyn and Bonnie, I so love you both) finding new, different and interesting people that will cause enough drama to make the show worth watching.  Anyway, I am shocked to find out what is going to happen this Thursday night, I can’t even think of a better way to describe it other then shocked, any other words would probably give away the secret.  I don’t wanna say too much and give away the show or my sources, so this is all I can give you.  If you wanna hear me describe how shocked I am before the show airs, check me out on Real Player (exact time is still pending), I am doing an interview with Chelsia on Thursday.  Then if you wanna hear my thoughts on the show and listen to a very special caller with first hand knowlege of what you just saw in episode 1 then listen to me on BBAD Blog Talk Radio at 8pm Central, immediately following the premier of the BB11.  I definately have some opinions on it all…
