I’m not one to report rumors but I’m getting super excited about Big Brother 18! That is, until I heard the latest rumor that the coaches are coming back. That concept, I’m okay with but the two ladies that are coming back, are super disappointing. The two worst players of Big Brother 18 – Audrey and Vanessa – are strongly rumored to be coming back as coaches. Vanessa was impossible to watch last season and Audrey, well, she essentially shut down last season. I figured Production would bring Audrey back, most likely as a host of a competition – just so we can see that she is doing well but potentially another season to watch these two collapse into themselves, I can’t get excited about it.
Derrick and Doctor Ian Terry, I’m all for. Especially as Doctor Ian Terry was part of the Coach season, Big Brother 14. Derrick won his, Big Brother 16.
Though that above website does state that Doctor Ian Terry said he isn’t coming back so who knows if any of this is warranted. We learn the cast on June 13th, so expect another post about that, sometime after I’ve done some research.
This upcoming season starts June 22 and suppose to last until mid-September. This is the last official season of Big Brother, unless it gets renewed – but I’m not sure if those two rumored coaches, if ratings will be there.
The siblings of former houseguests could be interesting but it would probably be like Elissa, Rachel’s sister from Big Brother 15, which was super disappointing. They should just own being the sibling as lying at the beginning rarely pays off. I think it only worked for Derrick but his strategy could only have worked his season.
The plan, for this blog, is to have the posts go up the day after it airs – if we can stay up that late but we’ve been staying up pretty late lately, as it has been so hot here. Once we know the official days of the week, I’ll post that schedule so we all know what to expect.
While talking to my wife, it don on me that they went with two male winners and two crappy ladies from last season. Why couldn’t they go after two of the female winners of the series?
Season 3 – Lisa Donahue
Season 4 – Jun Song
Season 6 – Maggie Ausburn
Season 11 – Jordan Lloyd
Season 13 – Rachel Reilly
Rachel couldn’t do it as she’s super pregnant, as I saw during the Big Brother prime time episode of The Price is Right. Big time, show time, prime time!
I’m not sure if Jordan is available but since Jeff practically works there, I could see him maybe convincing her to go again, it would be her third time.
I couldn’t remember Maggie, my wife kept saying “nerd herd” but that didn’t mean anything until she said the firefighter and how it was Janelle & Howie’s first season. It is amazing how much Season Seven was a reaction to Season Six. Maggie would have filled the Vanessa role, in likeability. I can see her saying no.
Lisa and Jun, I’m not sure about. Jun would have been super fun, if her Twitter account is any indication.
Five winners out of 17, isn’t great and no woman has beaten a man, they were all winners of a all female final two.
