Big Brother Canada Season 3 was riddled with insane twist after another. Foolishly, I was hoping the US edition would show some restraint and not follow suit. Boy, was I wrong. Houseguests will be thrown curveballs each and every week.

Dubbed “BB Takeover,” two surprise guests will appear each week to introduce a new insane twist into the game. Season 17’s houseguests are in for a rocky ride. I expect the surprise guests will mostly consist of previous contestants.

“This is going to be the biggest ‘Big Brother’ ever!,” teases executive producer Rich Meehan. “Surprise guests, twists every week all summer long and, of course, Zingbot! But the houseguests better keep their focus, because ‘Big Brother’ is all about relationships. Trust me, with all the twists and turns, those bonds will be more important than ever, because at the end of the week, it’s your housemates that send you packing on eviction night.”

In other BB-related news, Julie Chen talked about Big Brother’s first transgender houseguest. Producers were hoping to keep Aubrey Middleton’s transgender status a secret until premiere night, but TMZ leaked the news. Chen tears up talking about Aubrey during The Talk. Watch the clip below.

With a week before Big Brother returns for its 17th season on June 24, CBS has finally revealed the 14 houseguests vying for $500,000 and bragging rights. As always, fans should “expect the unexpected” with CBS touting new twists being implemented this year. Sadly though, those won’t be revealed until the two-night premiere. Care to make any guesses? Hopefully, producers won’t go overboard with too many twists as their Canadian counterparts did this past season.

At first glance, the cast looks quite promising. This year’s resident male hottie will undoubtedly be Clay Honeycutt. With a name like that, you just know he’s from Texas and a stud. Check and check. Also quite interesting is an Asian brother in the mix- James Huling. The CBS reality show has certainly been lacking with regards to that over the years. There’s even a GinaMarie look-alike in the bunch, Vanessa Rousso.

However, the most interesting cast member is Audrey Middleton. CBS hasn’t officially revealed she’s transgender and simply reveals she’s a digital media consultant from Georgia. TMZ, though, reveals that Audrey was previously a boy named Adam before transitioning several years ago. Check her out below, along with the other houseguests.

Anyone super excited for Summer? I am and not only for the hot weather but for Big Brother as well. The reality show is such an addicting guilty pleasure, especially the live feeds. Hopefully, the casting department does an equally excellent job picking eye candy like Cody Calafiore. Both Caleb ‘Beast Mode Cowboy‘ Reynolds and he made for a very memorable Season 16.

Calafiore currently graces the March/April 2015 cover of Winq magazine. Photographer Greg Vaughan snaps the 24-year-old stud in Calvin Klein and Bjorn Borg underwear inspired by the New York City skyline. Anyone else want to climb the New Jersey hottie’s ‘Empire State Building’ ;) Check out more pics below.

Big Brother Winners Ranked: From Best To Worst

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Big Brother 15 just wrapped up and I thought this was the perfect time to revisit this Big Brother Winners post. There’s nothing worse than investing your summer watching this show, only to witness some loser win it all in the end. Meanwhile all your favorites sit in the jury house waiting for finale night… or worse, at home. Through the years, there are have been some deserving winners and on the flip side, some equally atrocious ones. Sit back and see if you agree with my assessments.

Since Big Brother 1 was solely based on public nominations, votes and evictions, I’m not going to include that season in my rankings. That season was a complete bore because of two words “CHICKEN GEORGE“. If you don’t know what that means, be thankful you don’t. That individual and his rabid fans are why that season went down the sh*tter.

Check out my list below, starting from BEST WINNER to WORST WINNER. If you don’t agree with any of my placings, I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Keep in mind, everyone has their personal favorites. I’m prefacing this by saying I’ve never been a Dan Gheesling fan. I just don’t get the love. Bring on the hate all you Dan fans.

Every year, Julie Chen asks Big Brother viewers to vote for their favorite player at the end of the season. That person would win a cash prize usually around $25,000. Given this year’s crop of questionable players, we should instead crown BB15’s most despicable player. There are plenty of worthy contenders.

Just when you thought controversy surrounding the show had died down, some fool in the house makes even more idiotic remarks, giving Aaryn Gries a run for her money as the most hated houseguest ever. This time, live feed watchers weren’t the only ones disgusted, but law enforcement officials as well.

According to TMZ, police in Spencer Clawson’s hometown in Arkansas were alerted by comments he made. In the past, Clawson has already made racial, misogynist and homophobic remarks. Now he’s graduated to making inappropriate comments about child porn.

For the past week, inappropriate comments made by several of the Big Brother 15 houseguests have dominated headlines. Fans outraged by the dialogue in the house criticized the show for not showing the true colors of the offending players. Four episodes aired without a mention of any of the racist, homophobic, misogynist or anti-Semitic comments. That is until Sunday night’s episode.

Whether the criticism became too deafening for CBS to ignore, the show finally aired a few of the “gems” spewed by Aaryn Gries, by far the worst of the bunch. During today’s episode of The Talk, Julie Chen addressed Gries’ comments.

“You’ve seen me make jokes about being Asian-American … but I’m Asian and it’s always in good fun,” says Chen. “Those things, in my opinion, watching her say, ‘Go make a bowl of rice,’ it felt mean-spirited. It felt ugly and it felt mean.”

Chen also commented on the producers’ decision to air them. She points out that the show did not finally choose to air the comments because it was time to “judge” the houseguests but rather because they are now affecting the game-play in the house.

“CBS and ‘Big Brother’ showed it because it is now driving a story, it’s now affecting how the other players want to see her gone. If it didn’t drive story and it didn’t have a dynamic on what it is to the elements of the game, it maybe wouldn’t — you can’t just put it in there and say, ‘Judge her, everybody,'” – Julie Chen

While Aaryn finally got exposed on national television, the others were given a pass. GinaMarie briefly was shown, but what about Spencer’s anti-Semitic views or Jeremy’s extremely misogynist comments? Hopefully, they all get their time in the spotlight as well. Check out Aaryn’s lowlight reel below.

Racial slurs are a hot topic these days thanks to Paula Deen-gate. Naturally, with all the hateful chatter in the Big Brother house this year, fans of the show have been outraged by CBS and their portrayal of the offenders thus far on the episodes, particularly Aaryn Gries. By far, she’s the worst of the bunch, but on the show, she’s receiving a likeable edit due to her showmance with lifeguard David Girton. Among those outraged include former BB contestant Ragan Fox. Here’s an excerpt from his open letter to the network.

“Big Brother, I LOVE you, but, if you really want to provide a groundbreaking twist, SHOW CBS VIEWERS HOW SOME STRAIGHT, WHITE PEOPLE talk about gays, Asian Americans, and African Americans.” – Ragan Fox

“Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.” – CBS

I couldn’t agree with Ragan’s sentiment any more. It’s one thing to make a slip, but the frequency and vile nature of what’s coming out of some of the houseguests is alarming. Even though CBS hasn’t aired any of the hateful propaganda as of yet, fans have speculated that they’ve warned the houseguests to tone down the racial comments. There hasn’t been nearly as much racial, homophobic and misogynistic comments in the past couple of days. However, what’s done is done. A couple of this season’s contestants have lost their jobs due to their conversations on the live feeds. Find out which two below.

In less than 24 hours, my days and nights will be occupied watching the Big Brother live feeds. Sayonara everyone. I’m sure I’m not alone in admitting to putting the feeds in the background while milling around the house. I’ll even go further and declare I love listening to the chatter as I lay in bed. Never lived in a small town so I need noise to fall asleep. Sirens are soooo soothing.

But besides all the backstabbing, epic fights, meltdowns and so forth, one of the biggest pros to watching the CBS reality show is to ogle at the houseguests in their bathing suits. Right? The network just unleashed promo photos of the entire cast in their swimsuits. Since we love our man eye candy, I’ve only posted the men in their bathing suits. Sorry female houseguests, we’re strictly dickly here ;) Check out the pics below.
