Big Brother 12’s Official Site & New Commercial

By: on June 16, 2010 |

Just when you thought it was safe to walk away from the computer, CBS pulls a fast one on us. Today CBS released a brand new commercial for Big Brother 12 and the brand new Big Brother website.

The new commercial is something we’ve never really seen in the past 11 seasons (check it out below). CBS has spent a little bit of dough and hired what looks like actors (slash pretty people) but could it be the new HG’s? Not likely. Probably actors. Let’s go with that. You can’t actually see the ‘houseguests’ in question, most of the shots are extreme close ups or a very blurred visual of them.

If I’ve learned anything from covering Big Brother over the past eleven seasons, the commercials usually mean squat. It is, however, very interesting the way this commercial was created. Like I said above, nothing we’ve seen before. They also debut a new title graphic for the series… but again means nothing. The promo department at CBS usually does whatever they want while the Big Brother production team rarely has a say in it.

Also on the super-duper-exciting front is that the new Big Brother 12 homepage at CBS.com launched today. It’s very CBS-like. The structure is very similar to the main CBS.com site but it’s a much nicer design. It’s got the beach theme we were talking about earlier. There’s no new information but it’s just another thing on the list that makes Big Brother super exciting every year!

Big Brother Season 2 Marathon on Global Reality Channel

By: on June 11, 2010 |

As you may or may not know Global TV is Canada’s Big Brother station. They’ve been behind the show since season 1. And although they don’t have any plans on creating a English-Canadian version of the show (there is already a french version of the show in Quebec) that doesn’t mean they don’t want to invest in reality TV.

Enter Global Reality Channel. Canwest’s latest foray into the digital tv market will begin on July 1st when GRC launches. At the moment the channel is only available on Rogers Digital Cable but more providers are to pick up the network soon.

Big Brother is one of the key shows on this new reality channel and will air the new season with back-to-back episodes Tuesday starting at 8pm. And with the beauty of this all reality channel is that Global can go back into their archives and show old seasons of the show.

July 3rd and July 4th is when Big Brother 2 will air on the channel, back-to-back starting at 6am on July 3rd. What better way to get prepared for Big Brother with a Big Brother Marathon?

Possible Big Brother 12 houseguests tweet’s herself outta the house (UPDATED)

By: on June 9, 2010 |

Let the houseguest speculation begin! Shantrice Wilkerson is a 25 year-old female from Hollywood, California. Great, you say? Well it’s not that big of a deal until Shantrice create a major Reality TV faux pas by revealing on her Twitter Page that she has received a phone call about Big Brother 12. While going through the process of being on a reality show, you’re not really suppose to tell anyone. Everything is super secretive, hush hush, on the d-low, got it?

So what would make Shantrice think it was a good idea to let all of her 91 followers know she’s in the running for BB12?

What makes this story even more interesting is what DogDave (site NSFW) has uncovered. On Shantrice’s Facebook profile under her “Employers” section she lists the Dolce Group has her employer. Now why is that so interesting? Because if you remember BB2 and BB All Stars winner Mike “Boogie” Malin has stakes in the Dolce Group. He is an investor and helps run several of the Dolce restaurants including Geisha House in Hollywood.

So if Shantrice thought she might be on Big Brother 12, she might want to rethink that. The chances of her getting on after this slip up are slim to none.

Although we can’t confirm that she actually got a call.. it’s fun to speculate! Here’s the tweet in question:

I Recieved a call today to be on the show Big Brother 12!! God is truly amazing.. Now we play the waiting game to see if Im choosen..Tue Jun 08 03:39:12 via Twitter for iPhone

UPDATED: Look like she’s catching on to what’s going on. She’s just deleted the tweet in question (above) and has also protected her tweets (and removed us from following her!) so something is definitely askew.
