Well, it is only a scant 8 days until the latest season of Big Brother 6. CBS has finally updated their Big Brother website with the list of 14(?!) houseguests.
Here is my take:
April - Pharmaceutical Sales Rep - 30 - Newlywed - Dallas, TX
Seems like a typical, vanilla personality. Nothing really stood out to me about her. Which could mean she could coast for quite a while. Her only “drawback” is that she is a newlywed, so expect whining to the camera about how much she misses her hubby. Also, she can’t form a boyfriend alliance, which is both good and bad.
Ashlea - Fashion Design Student - 22 - Single - Plantation, FL
Considers peanut butter a snack, so that could help. No favorite music? I wonder what CD she will ask for if she wins HoH? Tied for the youngest houseguest.
Beau - Personal Shopper - 25 - Single - Pembroke Pines, FL
Personal shopper? Likes chick flicks? Favorite actress…Dakota Fanning? Likes “girl drinks”… interesting.
Eric - Firefighter - 36 - Married Dad - Boston, MA
Could have another Survivor Tom on our hands. Oldest houseguest, which never ends well. I didn’t know anyone still ate Whatchamacallits!
Howie - Meteorology Student - 34 - Single - Chicago, IL
Red flag. Meterology Student at age 34. Seems to have an eclectic mix of likes.
Ivette - Waitress - 25 - Single - Miami Beach, FL
Reminds me of former BB houseguest Lisa. She’s “gotta have her Pops” What the heck is Orangina?
James - Loss Prevention Manager - 29 - Single - Atlanta, GA
Likes Hannity and Colmes. And all the Miami sports teams (just like Ivette). Lot of Miami fans this year!
Janelle - VIP Cocktail Waitress - 25 - Single - Miami Beach, FL
My first take is airhead, but we will see. Cheerleading is a sport?
Jennifer - Arena Football League Dancer - 27 - Single- Plano, TX
Likes Diet Dr. Pepper and Dr. Pepper.
Kaysar - Graphic Designer - 24 - Single - Irvine, CA
Most of his favorites are…no favorites. So either he is shy or just anti-social. First one out? Methinks yes.
Maggie - Emergency Room Nurse - 26 - Single - Las Vegas, NV
Hobbies are…outdoor activities (a little broad, hon.) She can at least talk to Eric about the Red Sox.
Michael - Artist - 28 - Single - Orange County, CA
Nothing really jumps out at me about Michael.
Rachel - Horse Breeder - 33 - Single - Parker, CO
Horse Breeder. Mom of the group (oldest female). Not a great taste in movies (IMHO).
Sarah - Retail Manager - 22 - Single - Chicago, IL
Likes “anything funny or romantic” for films. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are her favorite actors (she must love 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer). Which is confusing, because those movies weren’t very funny or romantic (again, IMHO).
Looks like an interesting bunch overall. Not a large difference in age ranges. No one claims to be a non-drinker (except possibly the silent Kaysar, who apparently abstains from speaking). 14 houseguests seems a bit cramped, but we will see. Should make for an interesting season. Though I fear that this show is getting a little long in the tooth. What do you all think?
