Big Brother 16: Meet the Cast of Houseguests!

Good afternoon, BB Lovers!  As promised, today is Reveal Day for the Big Brother HGs!  Go get a nice tall glass of water and put on something comfy, 'cause you're gonna be here a while.☺

♫Getting to know them.. Getting to know alll about them...

I'll be posting the pics and brief bios in this post, and doing several features with as much as I can dig up over the next  couple days.  Some HGs have more info available than others.  In the case of Frankie Grande, brother of superstar singer Ariana Grande, I could provide hours of entertainment! But I hope this fun post all about him will tide you over for now.

**Even if you don't know Ariana Grande by name, you definitely know her tunes.  Here's one that was used in a BB16 commercial!  Cheeky little hint they gave us, no?? ;-)

OK.. now that we've cleared that up, let's meet our HGs!

Name:  Amber Borzotra is a 26 year old Esthetician who says the accomplishment she's most proud of is "Going an entire year without sex or out on a date."
**headdesk.
Hometown: Knoxville, Tenn.
Current City: North Hollywood, Calif.

Three adjectives that describe you: Courageous, free spirit and nurturing.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Not being able to talk to my mom, sister, or best friend any time I want and not having all the food I want to eat.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: It's all a secret! When money is on the line I'll do anything it takes to win. Well, ALMOST anything.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I like Howard just because he was good looking. At the end of the day this is a game, I just like pretty people!
What are you afraid of:  Spiders, snakes and having to eat bananas.

Oh Look! The first page break of the BB16 season! Just click where it says read more, and the rest of the post will open up for you... ☺



 Brittany Martinez

Brittany is a 29 year old divorced mom of 3 from Long Beach, CA who works as an Event Coordinator.  She describes herself as "Fun, Loving and loyal,"   and her favorite activities include dancing, working out, being crafty, sewing and fashion.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Being away from my family and kids. I've never gone longer than a weekend without my kids let alone months of not seeing them or talking with them. The same goes for my family. We’re a very tight knit family so that’s going to be a challenge for me.


 Caleb Reynolds
Caleb is 26 year old Iraq War Veteran.  He joined the army after highschool and served as a prison guard in Iraq.

**I'm guessing he didn't have sex or date during that period either, but he'd never think to call that his greatest accomplishment.  His strategy in the game, however, is "to have the ladies in my pocket."

Caleb hails from Dallas, Texas and currently resides in Hopkinsville, Kentucky where he works as an Adventure Hunting Guide.  He describes himself as loyal, talented and charming, and his favorite activities include horseback riding, rock climbing, going to the gym, riding bikes, hunting and fishing.

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: The most difficult part is being watched at all times, because everything I’m doing my family back at home is watching. Also, throwing a sexy girl that likes me under the bus will be hard but I will do what I have to do, so kiss me, lay with me, have sex with me, tell me you love me, I’m still in it to win.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I liked Hayden because he has the same mindset that I would have had in the house. He plays his cards right even if he has a bad hand and he makes his cards work to his advantage.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: My military service.
What would you take into the house and why: My bible just to get my daily word in and scriptures to give me guidance and peace. I would take my iPod to put me to sleep, to jam out and to listen to when I hit the weights in the yard. Also, my hair products and hygiene kit so I smell good and look good for the ladies.

Christine Brecht
 Christine is a married 23 year old from Tucson, AZ who works as a shift supervisor/barista.  Asked to describer herself, Christine says she is "Bubbly (my nickname at work is "bubbles"), eccentric and hilarious."  She loves "exploring new cities. I love going out and seeing new places. Also, I love hanging out with my friends and playing Settlers of Catan and watching reality TV."

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: I do not know how I am going to go without seeing my husband and family, but I know I can do it! Not being able to explore and being stuck in one place. Also, I don't want to clean up everyone’s messes.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: I plan on being nice and having everyone confide in me to get information from all over the house. I really want to have a strong pack with only three to four people that I stay loyal to till the end. I don't want to play both sides of the house, but I'm not saying I won't.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I love Howie, I just loved his personality and I love Mike Boogie's game. Helen amazed me with her ability to feel out what was happening in the house.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Being cast as the lead in a musical last summer!
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Love people and be happy!

Intersting tidbits:  Christine once threw a surprise birthday party for a homeless man in the park, was in a hot air balloon accident in high school, but only walked away with bruises. She has been to Disneyland more than 50 times.

Hometown: Hackensack, N.J.
Current City: Howell, N.J.
Occupation: Sales Account Executive
Three adjectives that describe you: Outgoing, happy-go-lucky and empathetic.
Favorite Activities: I love going on runs, working out and going to the gym.

****Bla Bla Bla...

Dishers, meet our mancandy!!

 ***oh my.. oh my...  do feel free to linger.

 ***a bit of an odd pose here, but.. thank you, bb goddess who provides.. thank you~


What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: From watching previous seasons, not having communications from the outside world seems like the most difficult part, it causes all sorts of paranoia about twists in the game. Also, I always have the TV on to fall asleep; it will be difficult to not have one.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: No! Thinking about all the different ways to get to the end is enough to make my head explode! It will be a game time decision for me once I get into the house.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Jeff -  he was an extremely smart player and was just a genuinely good person.
What are you afraid of: Losing family, snakes and being in the pitch black is pretty freaky.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Being picked up by a professional soccer team.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Don't be afraid of falling; be afraid of not having the will to get back up.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Continue to watch every season of Big Brother and try and get back onto another season!

Three adjectives that describe you: Confident, methodical and ambitious.
Favorite Activities: I am a big fan of guns and enjoy modifying and shooting them; I get to use most of them at work. Also, I like to scuba dive.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Being away from my family for so long. Even though you are in the house with other people, you have to remember that they are trying to take $500,000 away from you and it will be tough to not have my family to release some of the tension.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: My strategy involves three phases. First, attempt to find common interests with as many houseguests as I can, while developing a profile on them. Second, start using the facts I learned about the houseguests against them. Finally, if I’m able to win a few HOH's/POV's late in the game, I can make some moves that will determine the winner.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: I love that Dan Gheesling was always using sports analogies to pump himself up because I'm the same way.
What are you afraid of: I am not a fan of heights.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I'm proud of my education and the accomplishments in my career as a police officer.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today - James Dean
What would you take into the house and why:  A picture of my daughter as she is everything to me, my memory foam pillow since I need a good night sleep and a deck of cards.
What would you do if Big Brother made you famous: I would try and use it to make some positive changes. I would like to give back to my family and help out the kids of Central Falls. Also, I'm a huge animal lover. Sign me up for anything I can do to help reduce the number of puppy mills, kill shelters and helping animals get adopted.

Favorite Activities: The gym is a huge part of my life. I love to hike and relax on the beach as much as I can as well.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: I’m a pretty big guy who needs to eat; Grumpy Devin comes about when food is not available.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Of course, it’s all about making friends and not enemies at all cost. Not everyone will like you, but you have to try to bond with your housemates to build trust. Also, you have to rule very politically if you’re at the top so it may be beneficial to lay low in the weeds until the final five.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Hayden played the game right.
What are you afraid of: I am afraid of rats, rats and rats.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I’m proud that I attained most of my athletic goals that I set out to achieve. I love that I was able to give my mom a sense of relief by not having to pay for college. I had to give up baseball so that I could be a good father and I’m happy with that choice every day of my life because having my daughter trumps all other accomplishments.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Don’t live too fast. Don’t live too slow. Live my life the way I want with no regrets and I'll have lived my life just right.
What would you take into the house and why: Just 3? A shaver since I need to look smooth and clean cut always (unless its Sunday brunch), a toothbrush (how can I form an alliance with bad breath?) and  a photo of my daughter, no explanation needed.
What would you do if Big Brother made you famous: Thank Big Brother!

Favorite Activities: Biking, swimming, twerking, doing impersonations and making funny videos with my friends!
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house:  Being disconnected. I think I would love it for a week or even two, but eventually I would start to go into Twitter withdrawal.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: I am going to be the happy likable person that everyone wants to keep around in the beginning, but I will be good at competitions. I will use the HOH's that I win to make everyone want to be on my side.

What are you afraid of: Spiders, ever since one almost killed me.  I am totally fine with insects though because I studied entomology in college.

Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Ideally, I would want to align with a male who would excel in the physical competitions and have a secret final 2 deal and have separate alliances on top of that. I want to win the first HOH so everyone can come to me and I can feel them out and see who I think I could trust.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Dan because he is intelligent and cocky which made for good TV. Ian was one of my favorites too. He can talk nerdy to me anytime. Also, Jordan was too cute and sweet not to love.

Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Yes, my outer personality will be a perfect cover for the secret competitor that I truly am.  I am the funny guy, I'm young and immature which will play to my advantage; but I'm also a marathoner, a former college hockey player and a very smart and creative thinker. I will never throw a competition and I won’t lie about who I am or my life, but I'm willing to backstab people. I will seek an alliance very early on with the guys, and I am not considering a showmance. I know I can win this game with my charm and underlying physical and mental talent.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Hayden because he resembles me in just about every way possible.

What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: I would exploit my fame for money and success like any other reasonable person would.

What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Go along with the ride and enjoy every second of it. I would promote my photography business as well.

After meeting a number of house guests on cbs.com. I just wanted to toss this idea out there.

We all saw two memory walls right?
Do we think maybe there will be two teams?
If so what about sports or athletic players vs nerd?

Only because I have recognized at least 3 or 4 players have a back ground in sports.

What do you all think so far?

I am STOKED about the houseguests this year! So far I love Joey (except that she was cast...ugh), Frankie (probably cast, too!), Cody, and Nicole.

Yep, there is my final four!

Happy BB16 everyone!!!

Hi Carolyn and all BBDishers. Does anyone else think Frankie is a lot over the top, or is it just me. ;)

Hello,

So glad they are newbies, I didn't want to watch retreads. Hope they are interesting and nice not hard to like this year! Thanks for posting Carolyn, I expanded into BB Canada with you this year and loved it, unfortunately my workload makes it impossible to catch many shows but it did sell me on the feeds this year (through your link). Enjoy the season everyone.

So they all want to take photos...ah, the big reward for winning HOH....guitars--never mind the copyright restrictions that disallow all music...and laptops for social media--do they understand what Big Brother even is? These houseguests would seem like a step up if not for their complete inability to get what the experience is all about and the question if they ever even watched the show before (in spite of naming past favorites--who are very recent and sometimes the worst most anti-social creatures ever).

~~~Devin is a former professional baseball player who used to play for the St. Louis Cardinals. ~~~

Ummmmm....This is my team...so he is my player of choice. Not to mention he is a beautiful, beautiful man. LOL

Now, secondly, I dub Mr Derrick my second favorite, and that's because he's a cop who loves animals as much as I do, from the sounds of it.

Third, fourth, and fifth are Donny, Frankie, and Joey. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS GAME TO START. OH MY!!
