Big Brother 17 CBS Announces Weekly Twists & Schedule


CBS announced the new twist for Big Brother 17–that there will be weekly twists, introduced by special guests.  It’s called “BB Take Over.”  I’m assuming the special guests will be former housemates. How are the producers going to keep fans on their toes week after week? The pressure is on to craft “twists” that aren’t lame. GOOD LUCK!

So far, CBS has announced 14 housemates, with more expected. One player, Audrey Middleton is a transgender woman. Another, Clay Honeycutt,  is a former college football player, and yet another, James Huling,  is a self described “Hillbilly Asian” with a rap sheet.  Oh yeah, there’s also an obnoxious dentist, John McGuire, who plays some pretty fabulous guitar.
