On Monday, we met the 16 new Big Brother 19 houseguests. The new faces seemed to confirm that the season would only feature newbies. Most Big Brother fans have wanted a season with no returning players, so many were overjoyed by the new Big Brother 19 cast. Yesterday, the Big Brother fandom got a little bit of a shock when it was rumored that there wouldn’t be just 16 new houseguests but 17.
Hamsterwatch broke the news that one of her sources said that Big Brother 19 would indeed feature a vet. Big Brother 18’s Paul Abrahamian had been approached to return to the show. Hamsterwatch even provided some evidence by pointing out that whoever is running Paul’s Twitter page switched his device from an iPhone to an Android.

All preseason, rumors about the Big Brother 19 cast have been running wild, so it’s hard to know what’s truth and just crazy speculation. Nevertheless, Hamsterwatch is a credible source. She often reveals spoilers long before they get announced on Big Brother.
This rumor also seems believable considering Big Brother 19’s theme, the Summer of Temptation. We would guess that Paul returns to the Big Brother house as part of a temptation. One player (maybe nominee or head of household) gets offered the opportunity for safety or money if they add Paul to the Big Brother 19 game.
Of course, the temptation will be too tempting for one player to not take it, and Paul becomes a part of the cast. Additionally, a Twitter user named Hec718 pointed out that the description for Thursday, June 29, 2017’s episode says that someone gets evicted.

This might mean a one out one in will happen with Paul coming into the house after the first eviction. There is a possibility this description is wrong and just a generic one, because Thursdays episodes are usually evictions, but the rest of the descriptions seem more up-to-date and relevant to this season. For example, the description for the July 2, 2017 episode mentions the Den of Temptation twist.
It’s unfortunate if someone leaves the Big Brother 19 game before we get to see them on feeds. However, it wouldn’t be the first time Big Brother has done something like this, so we should have expected it. As for Paul’s return, if it proves true, we’re not quite sure how we feel about it.
Paul was fun to watch On Big Brother 18, but we were looking forward to an all newbie season. If Paul does return to the game, the live feeds will be must-see. So make sure you sign up for those before it all begins on June 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM CST/8:00 PM EST.
