Meet The Big Brother 15 Houseguests!

Good afternoon, BB Lovers!  The moment has arrived!  It's time to meet the people we'll be hanging out with all summer: The Big Brother 15 Houseguests!

Who will we love?  Who will we love to hate?  Who will we prematurely misjudge?  Who will give great interview and then fall flat?

We're going to spend a lot of hours watching these people on the live feeds.  Let's start the process and get to know them via their pics, bios and videos.  If you're the type who loves research and you want to dig further, please let me know what you find out, either here in the comment section, or via facebook private message.

I'll be adding all the info here as soon as it's released by CBS, commenting and publishing as I go.  Please refresh this post periodically. :-)  You know that drill!

Chances are many of you are going to go directly to cbs.com to see for yourselves.  That's ok.  Just come back here when you're done, and kindly ignore any live feed sign up links you may see elsewhere. ;-)  Rumor has it the feeds just work better when you get them via BBDish. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.

The other day, Julie mentioned that while all the Big Brother 15 houseguests were new, we would  have one familiar face in the house.

That familiar face is Elissa Reilly Slater, Rachel's sister.

We've actually seen Elissa on BBDish before, in an interview with their mother, Noreen.

She's since gotten married and started a couple of businesses, and really changed her look. Much more glamorous now, and super fit!!

The rest of our new HGs are pictured below, along with my judge-a-book-by-its-cover remarks, and to be followed by more info about them!

Blogger BerdacheBear said...

You have a great "story," why would you want to not stick to it?!!?

Andy looks like he's barely out of High School, let alone being a Professor. Just an initial impression. None of the others look familiar. Rachel's sister?!?? OMG! Hope she doesn't receive a ration of s&!t from the other house guests, like she is somehow responsible for her sister's whining/crying/Breeeendon.

Howard, Helen, Judd, Amanda, and David my favs so far I already voted Amanda for MVP based on her written strategy but think Howard is a good shot as well

June 20, 2013 at 1:05 PM

Howard and Amanda are my choices for first MVP from first impressions I also like Helen, Judd, and David

Lol! My coworker and I are already picking out who's going to be trashy, nice, mean, etc and the pics aren't even showing up on our work computers. I said we are terrible judging books WITHOUT even seeing the covers!!! Lol! Can't wait for it to start.

Hi Carolyn!
I love all your comments about the houseguests! I watched all the interviews with Jeff Schroeder, and I really like Aaryn and Howard!!

So excited to be back at the BB Dish for the summer! I've been missing you all!!! First of all want to say I really like Kaitlin from her interview. She seems smart, real and gorgeous. I guess we'll have to see how they interact and feed off each other. Looking forward to spending the summer with ya'll!!!

Hey Caro! ((HUGS))

So far... like Howard, Amanda and Helen. Dislike possibly GinaMarie, Judd and Jeremy.

HG's first look... cool .... a few older / middler age might have been nice though!

Blogger Lulu (aka Stefanie) said...

I don't like any of them!! Hate 'em. But that's how I feel every year!! I'm the rare person who likes to see and alum or two in the house because I like knowing someone lol (Rachel's sister doesn't count).
Honestly, I'm waiting for the year BB has an average cast. Notice they are always 2 extremes? Completely done up or completely dopey, super-hot or super-not? Survivor has gotten better with this, hopefully BB will, too. I just hope whomever the summer male-hottie turns out to be, it's someone more interesting than Shane (or else I have a lot of helping my friend Paint, gotta watch him dry).

Yay, less than a week!!!

Blogger Lulu (aka Stefanie) said...

Oh, and my ex-bf of 4 years cheated on me with a Gina Marie, and then married her. I already don't like her...lol

(Watch her be my favorite by season's end!!)

Hey Guys, excited to be back

I really like this cast so far, they all seem so unique.

I think it is great that so many of them actually applied to the show whether through video or open casting. I don't dislike the ones that did not apply and were picked up by casting directors but as a fan it makes it exciting to see someone like you make it on the show.

Looking forward to another season with BBDish! Enjoy the season and thank you in advanced to Carolyn and the BBDish team for all the updates

June 20, 2013 at 6:10 PM  
Blogger Stephanie from the West Coast said...

So, it looks like they are hoping on some ... ummmm ... some ... well, look at the cast, they are so stacking the deck to have things happen in the house ...

Not a lot of eye candy, more like lovable nerds, for you ladies this year but the boys,some of us at least, we got plenty to look at ;) Now to go watch some videos.

Blogger Cindy said...

So, four of these people live within 2 hours of me ... I'm stoked!!! Bring. It. On. Can't wait to see how they all do. I'm really liking Aaryn, Elissa, Helen, Nick & Spencer, but ... could they get an interpreter for Judd? I think I'm going to really need the subtitles this year for sure. It's like watching Swamp People or something.

June 21, 2013 at 6:24 AM  
Blogger Cindi said...

I voted for McCrae for the first MVP. I really like this kid. I think he will play a great mental game, but will need some help to get through the physical comps.

Blogger Eileen @ Uncovering Bliss said...

Ugh, Jeremy thinks he's an "alpha male" from the CBS site strategy quote. He's going to be annoying.

June 21, 2013 at 9:10 AM  
Blogger Lynne Lampman said...

OMG, while watching the videos Candice was so familiar. Then when she spoke of the different beauty contests it hit me.
About 2 years ago she was on the show called Searching For on OWN. She met up with her birth mom.
How many critters do you feel are there trying to get some type of TV job? Seems like the mirrors won't be large enough for all the primping that will be going on.

Are you sure Jeremy isn't related to Zach (of the Evil Dick era?)

this stinks that they are all so young.. they should have given us a few thirty fforty something year olds.. wonder why they did that

June 21, 2013 at 6:16 PM  
Blogger cyninbend said...

I wish there were different ages--they are all in their early twenties besides one age 31, one age 29, and just one older...and that's just 37! I loved watching actually older people mix with younger. When they are all 23 it turns into a singles fest. The gossip becomes non-game-related and jealous....
