It is almost here! Yay! This Sunday kicks off the new season of Big Brother 10 and I can't wait! And, they revealed the cast here: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/big_brother/bio/ today! Check them out! Tomorrow, they will reveal the house so, I will try to post a link for that tomorrow! So, after you get a chance to check out the cast, come back here and tell me what you think. I know lots of people wanted a more diverse cast for this season. More older folks with a lot more life experience under their belts. Looks like they only gave us 2. What do you think about that? Do you think 2 is enough? Or, did Big Brother keep it too young again for this season? I don't much care one way or another. I just thoroughly enjoy watching all these people make complete butts out of themselves, no matter how old or young they are! So, I look forward to getting to know the new cast and picking my favorites and least favorites! And, at least they put a few more hot-ish guys in there! LOL! It has been some slim picking for us lady viewers for the past couple of seasons. At least in this fan's opinion! So, what are your thoughts? If you even have any at this point! I know the show hasn't even aired yet but, at least you have a glimpse of the new cast now!

They should call it Big Brother and Little Sister, have a bratty little sister show up and tattle on everybody after she's watched the show from a secret place. I don't really care for the show, I guess I'm not a voyeur.

LOL! That would be a fun twist! It certainly would shake things up a lot! LOL! And, I am sorry to hear that you don't care for the show! It is my favorite reality show. I never miss it unless something happens to force me to miss it. Like, if the cable goes out or my TiVo doesn't record it for some reason. LOL! And, I am a bit of a voyeur! LOL! Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone! LOL!

It looks like those guys will be using alot of gel this summer! I like it when they add some older guests in the house. I can't wait for it to start. It will give me something to dvr this summer and watch latenights when I am home.

LOL! I didn't even notice that they all seem to have highly gelled hair! LOL! I hope they can fit all the gel they will need for 3 months in their bag! LOL! I think they could have put a few more older people in the house in addition to the two that they did get. I do have a few other shows that I watch during the summer but, I am definitely looking forward to BB bringing a little something for my TiVo! LOL!

IM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Big Brother. The couple show: Big Brother 9 was amazing. I really cant wait to watch it again. I watch it religiously and it is the best show ever made. I hope there is cute people this show too because I love seeing when a guy and a girl get together because of Big Brother. I love that. I really miss watching the show and i can NOT wait to watch it this season too. I will be glued to my TV set on Sunday. Is anyone else watching Big Brother on Sunday too? Is there any specific reasons why you like the show?

LOL! I am really excited too! I liked BB9! I had fun watching it. I liked James and Chelsia. I hope they managed to stay together but, it sort of seemed like they might not be able to make it work based on distance. For one thing, he was all about the biking around the world and she wanted to stay put. So, we'll see. I loved Eric and Jessica together from BB8. I was really thrilled for both of them when they finally kissed! LOL!

I've been waiting for the cast to be announced! I checked last week and thought it was a bit too soon but knew it wouldn't be long. I'd hate to say things about these people just on their pics but I can't help it! LOL...and reading their bios seem to confirm my original thoughts. Just by looking at her picture, I never would have guessed Renny was 53. She looks amazing! All the younger guys, minus the cowboy, look like they could not only keep the hair gel industry going but be in a boy band together. Michelle looks like she's going to be the witch this season. All that hair also reminds me of Wahmber. I have to agree about Ollie. He may be one of the first to go. I don't think he's going to make it unless he bends some. This game may swallow him whole. This could all change when the show finally does air. LOL...I don't have anything to say about the others at this point. You'll have to ask again after the first night!

LOL! I was just saying the same thing about Michelle in response to the post above! That is crazy! I very much see Wamber in her! LOL! And, I couldn't believe that Renny was 53 either. She does look really great! I too don't want to judge any of these books by their covers so, I am trying not to. But, it is proving a little difficult! LOL! I can't wait to see and, I will ask you again after Sunday's episode!

I could care less about ages on the show. Just the diversity of personalities is plenty. And seems we have that with this cast. but why just one cowboy from Brokeback Mountain? Hahahaha! J/K I think Ollie will be the first to go. He has such a baby face and seems to be the one less likely to be able to handle confrontation/stress/anxiety while in the house. I like Renny myself. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I think I agree! As long as we get a good diversity of personalities, I'll be happy too! But, then again, I am always happy with BB. Even when the cast drives me crazy because they don't seem to know anything about the show, I still love it! LOL! So, now I am interested to see if your predictions are right! And, I have to go back and remind myself which ones are Ollie and Renny! LOL! It always takes me a little while to figure out who is who! LOL!

I'm sorry to hear yours isn't really entertaining you as much this season! I too hope that ours is exciting this season. A lot of people didn't like our last season. They didn't like the cast and the way they played. They were hoping for more older people and only had one who was really difficult to like! LOL! Hopefully yours will get better as it nears the end!
9 Jul 08
Hi cortijo73, My LapTop just laughed at me and give me a frightm why did it do that? I just typed your name and it just laughed, hope its not haunted. Yes our Big Brother is not yet nearly the end as it only half way through, I think there is tricks secret house and more people coming in, maybe they might the housemates that had been evicted, who knows? it is getting a bit better there will be another eviction thi Friday. Who goes We'll decide! Thanks Tamarafireheart.

Big Brother seems to have really taken off as a brand and many people do have the luxury to watch. I don't watch any television now since I moved because I have no tv in my pad which has room only for my computer. I'd like to have a piano but I can't because of the space assuming of course, that I have money for it.

LOL! Sorry to hear that you don't have a TV. You could always watch it online. And, it is never too late to start saving for a piano and, maybe by the time you can buy one, you will be living in a place with more room to accommodate for it.

I can't wait. I was just wondering do you get the live feeds? I always do, plus I watch it on Showtime. Once Big Brother starts that is pretty much my life until it ends. The live feeds are always going on my computer. The live feeds give you a much different show then what you see on TV. They really do some fancy editing on that show. I was so dissappointed in Big Brother 9. At times it was almost painful to watch the live feeds. The cast was rude, cude, and most of the time just plain mean. They did some of the nastiest things ever done on Big Brother. And I have watched the live feeds since season 2. I hope this cast is better to watch. I can hardly wait.

I don't get the live feeds but, I do read the live feed updates on one of the Big Brother fan sites dedicated to doing live feed updates. So, I am well aware of how they edit the show compared to what they don't show. It is pretty nasty! I also watch BBAD on Sho2. I liked last season. I got a kick out of all the bad behavior! LOL! I hope this season is a blast to watch!

I can't wait for this season. I could not believe it when I saw how old Renny was. I think the guys are a little better looking this year.....well some of them!! I think 75 is a little too old to be in the game. I get that he is a fit guy and that they have to be okay'd by a doctor, but i think that will make him either an easy target or just a pawn. I am excited though, I think it will be an entertaining season once again.

I was shocked at Renny's age too. She must give everyone her secret! LOL! I don't know what I think about a 75 year old on the show. They do mix in the physical challenges as well as the mental ones so, who knows. Where he may fail at the physical stuff, he may excel at the mental stuff. But, then again he may do really well at the physical stuff and really poorly at the mental stuff. I am looking forward to seeing how well he does. He may get really far because people may not see him as a threat! And, I think it will definitely be an entertaining season.

I can't wait.... LMAO I have not checked out the cbs yet, well not much anyway, I have been in there just to take a peek but I have not really read to much yet. I agree the house guests were all rather young and immature over the summer... It was a funny season however... I always wonder what they think about themselves when they get home and watch what we see LMAO. We are going to have fun discussing BB eh cortjo?

LOL! I thought last season was funny too! Even tough the cast was a little immature and young. And, even though they didn't seem to have a firm grasp of the show but, then again, how fun would the show be if everyone always tried to play it the same way as all the past cast members? And, I wonder what they think about themselves too. I also wonder what they think of one another when they see some of the stuff said behind closed doors, in the diary room. LOL! I hope they have Natalie back to explain herself about the things that she says she didn't do when we all saw what she did. Also, to give her opinion of her "Matty" now that she has seen what he really thought about her. LOL! And, yes! We are going to have fun discussing it Angelwhispers! I can't wait!

I only watched big brother the first few seasons , and my aunt keep begging me to give it another try . Lately , I just cant get into shows like that anymore . I might watch the first one to see if it can draw me in .

My suggestion would be for you to give it a few episodes because it takes a little time to get into it when you are first trying to get to know the new cast. It can be a little boring for the first few episodes. But, once alliances are forming and the backstabbing commences, it is really fun to watch and to cheer for some while screaming at your set at those you hate! LOL!

LOL! I hear ya about having to commit so much time to the TV. But, because it is so much fun, it is always worth it to me! LOL! One thing I noticed is that almost all of the guys look so much alike. And, after watching last night's premiere, I am having a little bit of a hard time knowing the difference between each guy. LOL! It seems that the casting crew has a few women on there that have a specific type. LOL!

How fun I can't wait for the show to be on. It is one of my favorite reality shows. I can’t wait for you to post about after hours and all the secrets too. I am not a big fan of the older people on the show- Yes I’m 35—but I like to watch the younger ones acting all stupid. I just hope there isn’t any family members on this one. I’ll be watching every show- I can’t wait- I didn’t see any post about the house yet….. Only 2 more days- We already have it set on the DVR

I look forward to posting about the after hours stuff too! And, I too am 35. I didn't like Sheila or ED from BB8 but, there was a guy named Jack from a couple of season ago that I got a kick out of. So, I am open to finding a new older HG to get a kick out of! And, I also love to watch the younger HGs act stupid! LOL! This season does not have any people who know one another. Nor, do they have any family members. From what I have read, everyone is new to one another. But, who knows what the twist may be. I am only going on what I have read thus far. And, I did a discussion with a link to the video of the house so, look for it! Happy BB10 Premiere and I'll probably post my thoughts about it either Sunday after the show or Monday!

I CAN'T WAIT!!! Once again this group looks like they will reck havoc on each other. Yea, those dudes will have to wear name tags for me to keep them straight (hmm?) for awhile. Looks like a very interesting mix as usual. I have watched all of them so far! Liked having 2 this year. Enjoyed the "couples twist"! Well, as always I'm ready for whatever!!! I am a diehard BB fan. So let the countdown begin...
