Big Brother 2009 To Have 12 Houseguests


Phew. All of the talk of a short season had be worried, but today I can confirm via CBS that Big Brother 2009 will have 12 contestants entering the Big Brother house!

Still no word on who the houseguests are, but we should hear those details the week before Big Brother 2009 premieres on July 9, 2009.

Big Brother 2009 Start Date Announced


Finally. We now know that CBS is planning to launch the Big Brother 2009 season on July 9th, a Thursday, at 8pm and then follow up the premiere with Sunday and Tuesday episodes. This will return us to the more normal schedule of Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, giving us a breather between each episode.

I like this layout much better than the Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday rush because of the extended downtime on each Thursday. The feeds’ energy should remain much more level this season.

What do you think of the new premiere date and episode rotation?

Big Brother 2009 Preseason Updates – Casting, Commercials, & House Calls


Big Brother 2009 should start up in about 6 weeks (early July) so things are startling to bubble on the surface of BB. First up is the news that casting has been completed and all finalists were notified for the 2009 season. So if you applied you’d know by now if you were still in the running.

Next we’ve got the very first commercial for Big Brother 2009 which looks to be using mostly footage from the past two seasons and does little to provide more information on actual start dates and themes for this year. Check that out below.

Lastly, for fans of Big Brother’s “House Calls” you’ll be disappointed to know that it appears to have been canceled unless a new sponsor steps in to save it, according to its host Gretchen Massey:

Subject: House Calls Canceled!
Body: Just wanted everyone to know, there’s no more House Calls! They couldn’t find a sponsor and have decided not to go forward with it during this season of Big Brother.

Anyone out there going to miss House Calls? Hopefully the first BB2009 commercial will cheer you up:

Final Big Brother 2009 Audition Events To Have BB Casting On-Site


Great news for Big Brother 2009 hopefuls. Kassting Inc., the folks in charge of finding the BB11 houseguests, has announced that they’ll have casting staff on-site at all three of the final casting events. That means if you can make it to any of the locations (Virginia, Kansas, and Washington) then you just might get to be seen by those making the big decisions. Very awesome.

Good luck out there to all applicants!
