Big Brother 16 is just a few short months away and it’s about time for us to starting getting some teases and hints about the new season! So we when we saw an awesome new interview with Big Brother 2014 casting director Robyn Kass out there, we were hopeful she might let a tiny spoiler or two slip out.
When asked where they were in the casting process, Robyn didn’t even actually answer the question. She just mostly said “our cast isn’t completely done until right before they move into the hosue.” Which is very true. We remember — was it last year or the prior year? — that we got official Big Brother spoilers photos and a promo video of the cast members and there was this guy in them… and then suddenly he vanished never to be heard from again.
Robyn Kass also refused to say anything about speculation about an All-Stars season or if there would be returning players in any capacity for Big Brother 16. Instead, she just said there are “a million pros and cons to bringing back players and having new players.” For those new players, she did recently release a very funny tongue-in-cheek ‘casting tips’ video for those who are thinking of applying for the show.
As for screening out possible cast mates to prevent potential problems like last year’s racism controversy, Robyn said no one “can guarantee anything that they’re going to do or say and if they do have controversial views, those don’t come up in casting.” She just hopes people don’t say such things this season and that people have learned from watching last year’s show.
