Meet the Big Brother 10 Cast - Pics, Videos & House Tour!!

Good Morning, Big Brother Lovers. How'd ya like to meet the cast? ;)

Here's the pics n bios... Commentary to come... as soon as you hit the comment section. ;) I'm dying to know who you love at first site! For me, so far, Jerry & Renny, all the way. Of course, I reserve the right to change my mind at a moments notice! Say, in a couple hours when we see them fully animated on Early Show...

Or even at the bottom of this post where the official videos of the HGs and the House Tour with Julie are...

Name: Angie
Age: 29
Hometown: Orlando, FL via Virginia Beach, VA
Occupation: Pharmaceutical Sales Representative
Marital Status: Single

Angie is a smart and sexy, Korean-American tomboy who can mix it up with the best of them. She is a recent divorcee who is happy to be single again.

She describes herself as wild, entertaining and funny and loves to hang out with friends. Her favorite activities are working out, socializing, boating and traveling - basically anything that's fun to do. She is proud that she was the Guinness-chugging champion for women at Irish Kevin's bar in Key West. She enjoys watching college football and is a dyed in the wool Gators fan. She's also crazy about her miniature Dachshund whose name is Dixie.

Name: April
Age: 30
Hometown: Higley, AZ via Arlington, NE
Occupation: Financial Manager
Marital Status: Single

April graduated from Doane College in Crete, NE with a Bachelor's Degree in Sports and Fitness Management. She is currently working as a Financial Manager at a car dealership and does well in this "man's world".

She admits to being OCD and can't sleep at night if the bottles in the refrigerator aren't lined up properly.

Name: Brian
Age: 27
Hometown: San Francisco, CA via Elk Grove, CA
Occupation: Telecommunication Account Manager
Marital Status: Single

Brian attended the College of the Air Force and received an Associate College Degree. He served in the Air Force for six years, was an F-16 crew chief and was then honorably discharged. He has worked as an investment banker, an international military recruiter and a snowboarder. He currently works in the telecommunications industry but is also involved in several entrepreneurial ventures

Name: Dan
Age: 24
Hometown: Dearborn, MI
Occupation: Catholic School Teacher
Marital Status: Single

Dan attended Michigan State University and earned a Master's Degree in Kinesiology. He is currently working as a teacher in an all boys Catholic school.

He is conservative and not a fan of liberals. He doesn't think that America would have been ready for a female president and if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, he would have moved out of the country. He describes vegans as weird tree-huggers...

Name: Jerry
Age: 75
Hometown: Magnolia, TX via Wilkes Barre, PA
Occupation: Great Grandfather/Retired Marketing Executive
Marital Status: Married

Jerry is a diehard Big Brother fan and hasn't missed one episode in all nine seasons. He even watches Showtime After Dark and the 24/7 feed.

Jerry left high school in the 10th grade then, at age 38, returned to college. He went to Central State, Rochester Institute of Technology and Penn State and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing Management ten years later. Before then, he spent four years in the United States Marine Corps and was honorably discharged in 1954. He has been a devoted husband to the same woman for 54 years, and stays physically fit so he can take care of her as she has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's.

Name: Jessie
Age: 22
Hometown: Huntington Beach, CA via Rudd, IA
Occupation: Professional Bodybuilder
Marital Status: Single

Jessie is the all American boy next door who graduated from high school in Iowa. He is a professional body-builder with the World Natural Body Building Federation. His goal is to be an inspirational figure to people who want to lose weight, get fit or pursue a drug-free, body-building life style. When he was 19, he worked as a Train Conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad.

Jessie describes his ideal romantic partner as curvy, having long dark hair and being opinionated. He describes himself as personable, confrontational and a flirt. His ideal political office is Vice President of the United States because he gets all the same perks as the President but gets to hang out behind-the-scenes. His proudest accomplishment is being the youngest national professional body builder. His father is his hero as he always gave Jessie the choice of doing right or wrong.

***ahem... hottieliscious! too bad I have jean jackets older than him.

Name: Keesha

Age: 27
Hometown: Minneapolis, MN via Des Moines, IA
Occupation: Marketing Sales Representative
Marital Status: Single

As the son of a preacher, Ollie grew up in a strict Pentecostal family where, in his father's church, faith healing and speaking in tongues were practiced. His father is his hero because he totally supported his entire family - his mother, three sisters and two brothers for two decades. Ollie fondly calls his family the "Black Brady Bunch."

Dan, Jesse, and Steven are sooo hot. GOD. I mean Dan's gonna be a villian right off obviously. But Jesse and Steven can come on my tv whenever they want :DDD.

I LOVE the VW room !!!! Coolest BB room ever. The cast looks to be fun. Didn't really have anyone that I instantly had a liking for but I am sure that after the first couple shows I will have a better idea. Thanks for the great job you all do! MUAH.

Blogger Ry said...

OK so I can't watch the vids right now since Early show is on in...4 minutes!? Crap gotta make this fast.

First off, 2 African-Americans, a portuguese lady, an asian-american, 2 older people and the rest being beautiful younguns...good job BB, good job indeed!! Whoops, don't forget the gay :) I am VERY happy with this cast!!

Jerry, once he unloads the Parkinson's wife story(if he chooses too) will have everyone in America in tears and will officially love him. I'm also like Libra. Her outspoken attitude will be a joy to watch. And Jessie makes me drool...'nuff said.

Ollie...oy he'll be give n take. Either I'll hate him or he'll grow on me. 24 year old catholic school teacher, I have a feeling of not liking him.

CRAP! Early show is on. I'll be back after work to officially start the commenting season. Thank ya Carolyn, TRD n RepX, you make my Big Brother world go round!

Just on first sight I knew April and Dan/Brian (the Michigan conservative) looked like trouble.

I'm digging Angie and Ollie. Rennie (feather in the head girl) is giving a Natalie vibe.

omg the drama is going to be fantastic.

July 8, 2008 at 5:25 AM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

After reading the blurbs, I meant Dan looked like trouble. The die-hard BB fan reminds me of Eric. Ollie's giving me a Jameka and Kaysar vibe.

Also, I think I read on Jokers that Steven's a gay cowboy. So if that's true, it should be awesome to hear about.

July 8, 2008 at 5:27 AM  
Blogger MoNYC said...

Duh re: Steven. It says it in his blurb that he's performed in a gay rodeo.

Argh, I'm just getting caffeinated!

Very interesting cast of characters this year!!

Brian...yum yum!! Not sure if I'll appreciate the military comments especially where it concerns the army, but hey that's MY issue!! :)
Jessie is a baby OMG they'll chew him up and spit him out!
Ollie and Dan could cause a commotion and I probably won't agree with most of what comes out of their mouths.

Jerry....oh what can you say about JERRY!! I think HE's my fav. And I haven't even been able to see the videos!!

OK, can someone help me, I forgot my blogger identity, is there a different place for help??

I cannot believe Renny is 53! She is gorgeous! I really don't think I'm going to like Michelle..or Dan for that matter. Of course, I love Jerry already. I was thinking he may be uptight but if he's seen all the previous seasons he knows what he's in for....lol. I wonder what his strategy is...I also think April is going to have some major problems having OCD going into the bb house...I just can't wait!! I'm so excited! Oh and when Julie showed the hoh tub all I could picture was Crazy James and his um "gift".....lol

Already have my "first impression" favorites.
On the ladies side would definitely be Michelle (RAWR!!) and Angie.
On the guys side, Memphis (gotta root for a guy who lived 2 hours from me) and of COURSE....JERRY!!

Now as far as the "dislike factor", and as this comes as NO SURPRISE to some...Libra, April, and VERY surprisingly Dan.

And you know, Alison is not bad to gawk at either...gotta love the hair, am I wrong for that??? HAHAHA!

July 8, 2008 at 12:32 PM  
Blogger Melanie said...

Woo Hoo Let the season begin!!

I'm hoping Jerry makes it at least far enough. I'm really rooting for him!
I'm already disliking the strict religious folks... Have they not watched this show or are they trying to prove something??
The OCD chick (sorry it will take me a few episodes to figure out who is who) I think she would be smart NOT to brag in the house that she is OCD!!! That would be a great way to tick her off on purpose!

Carolyn I have to thank you for everything you do! You and your crew do such a nice job that when my hubby requested to get rid of the HBO I told him go ahead because I found a great site that keeps me up to date! So THANK YOU!!

i don't think jerry should really come on the show. yeah it doesn't have to be a really young cast, but a 75 year-old is too old for the big brother house. i pray he's evicted early on. i am not so big on ollie, his "anti-gay" attitude will get on my nerves fast. i don't like jessie, b/c i think body builder bodies are disgusting. everyone else is okay from what i can tell.

Thanks again to Carolyn for getting all this info on the new HG. I am so psyched to see how this lot mixes together. As always there is bound to be some friction. YAY! That's the best part. As for who I like...Steven, Jerry, and Renny so far. Everyone else seems too pretty. I can't believe Renny is really 53?!!
