We got Jeff Schroeder interviewing the 12 new houseguests of Big Brother 18!
I’ll go in the number of they were on CBS All Access. I have never really watched these so I’m hoping they are at least entertaining. We may not make it through all of them.
- Corey – Realtor from Dallas.
He’s a baseball coach, he’s not a superfan. He’s single. He’s not looking for love, maybe some light flirting. Jeff finds him good looking so maybe he is, Jeff would know. He has a dog and roommates, three or four guys. He names them, probably was asked to by his roomies. He’s a nice guy. He likes to pay it forward. Jeff likes to really hit the same notes. There are 12 eggs and 12 people take an egg, and there is one left, how is that possible? I guess Corey got the question right. Two night premiere! We like him. My wife loves Netflix’s Bloodlines, I need to watch it one of these days. She’s a big Friday Night Lights gal too.
2. Bronte – math student from San Diego.
Her name is like Charlotte Bronte, a famous writer – from what my wife is saying. She’s bad with math in her head. She got 9*9 wrong but Jeff knew the answer. She’s good with intervals. She’s a new fan, and she’s single. She’s cool with flirting. She wants to set up some showmances. She wants the money. She wants her doctorate. She’s going to use behavioral science. She explains outliers to Jeff. She namechecks Vanessa. She doesn’t answer Jeff’s songs on the radio question well. It is an odd one. We like her too. The Diary Room doesn’t look so bad, blue background with the red couch.
3. Jozea – celebrity make up artist from New York City.
My wife thinks Jozea is cute. He’s not one to tell stories about celebrity clients. He doesn’t know the fighter, Jozea, that’s how Jeff knows the name. He watched the latest season. He is single. He’s going to be true to himself. Jeff thinks Jozea looks amazing. The last time he cried was when someone ate his food from Puerto Rico. He knows how to cook. Jozea is wearing a sweet hat. Jeff is good with the plugs. The live feeds come on once the first episode airs – which is odd if they stick to the previous two seasons where Production reveals half of the house, per episode.
4. Paulie – entertainment entrepreneur from New Jersey.
Paulie is BB16’s Cody’s brother! Paulie seems to be more Jersey than Cody was. He has the same tattoo that Cody has, but I didn’t realize Cody had a tattoo. Paulie is part of the other twist of the season. Who is the other relative? He wants to match Cody’s social game. Cody was not one of the best social players of all time. Both Jeff and Paulie are wearing pink shirts. My wife just bought me my first pink shirt, so now I can be a real man. There’s a second camera in the room, one pointed at Jeff! Paulie has a long answer to Jeff’s “be a winner who is hated or a loser who is loved.”
5. Victor – gym manager from New Orleans.
Victor has managing skills and a financial degree. I hope he’s a better player than Renny. He’s Puerto Rican. He’s not a super fan but he’s seen lots of seasons. Jeff says Victor is in great shape. He manages 14 people at the gym. He’s a triple threat. He’s good with naps too. He’s single and okay with flirting and having a showmance. He references BB16’s Cody – which is funny. Just don’t flirt with a married woman, as America will turn on you so fast! He’s not much of a runner. He knows how to cook. We like him too. That felt like a fast interview.
6. Paul – clothing entrepreneur from Los Angeles.
There’s going to be two Pauls and both of them are entrepreneurs!?! Crazy! Paul has a Donny style beard but so much younger. He seems to be a super fan. He seems pretty laid back and easy going. He’s smooth as ice. He’s going to be one guy in the house and another guy in the Diary Room. He doesn’t have feathers as they got ruffled so much. I sort of like this guy. He will be willing to shave his beard to win but not during the first weeks. Jeff would wear Paul’s beard. Jeff, every Friday, will have his own After Hours show – I’m totally watching that. He’s single, for the past few months. Paul thinks it is okay for vegetarians to wear Davy Crocket fake fur hat. Jeff asks – Y-E-S spells yes what does E-Y-E-S spell and he gets it right, after a thought. My wife likes him too.
Half way there!
7. Bridgette – traveling ER nurse from Fresno.
She didn’t have to travel to far for this. She’s a big fan, watching the previous three seasons. She didn’t realize she was in the Diary Room. The Production path there must be confusing. She is single but left behind her cat – Hercules. She has a boyfriend! They’re in a good place. She can’t help that she is charming – I like her. She thinks she’s going to be great at this. She’s a bad liar. It is 9:30pm and my wife is falling asleep. I’ll keep on watching these. She likes to put her fist under her chin, trying to charm Jeff. She never thought about America would hate her. She thinks the live feeders will love her. Finally notice the title card, the show will air Wednesday / Thursday / Sunday. So expect posts on Thursday / Friday / Monday – ideally.
8. Tiffany – high school math teacher from West Palm.
Two players with math backgrounds!?! Her sister is Vanessa from BB18, hopefully she’s better than her poker playing sister. I guess that means Vanessa isn’t going to be one of the coaches. She’s a big Big Brother fan. She likes 10, 12 & 13. Jeff is trying to get her to say she’s Vanessa’s sister. She sounds just like Vanessa. Jeff had to work so hard to get her to admit it. She’s not going to volunteer that information, which she already has that goal in her head. She is going to be less emotional, as Vanessa regrets how emotional she was. Hopefully Audrey is not one of the coaches, either. She’s going to have a hard time throwing a competition. I’ve typed it once, I’ve typed it several times – never throw competitions! She has tattoos too. She started her own business, SAT prep for students. Being on the show is up there with her greatest experiences.
9. Michelle – recent graduate from Detroit
The first super fan! They made a new Prius commercial. My wife is going to bed but I’m still committed! She’s close to becoming a dietitian, she just needs to complete the license or something. She even watches the International Big Brothers! If I can watch those shows, I would. She is leaving behind her family and her dog. Her sister is 16 years old that day. She’s not going to be one of those awkward or serious super fans, she’s going to be a fun super fan. Becoming a dietitian is her greatest life achievement. She’s okay with being hated if she is the winner. She is going to miss watching the live feeds which is funny. The live feeds actually go live on Thursday, not Wednesday. That makes more sense.
This is Jeff’s first time doing this, right? I would have watched these before as they are not as terrible as I was lead to believe. I recall being tempted to in the past but all of the images looked like it was in a room with way too much yellow light and poor camera angles. Maybe two seasons ago?
10. Glenn – mobile dog groomer from the Bronx
Another guy wearing a pink shirt. He seems to be the oldest guy on the show, maybe in his 40s. He has a fiance and a nine year old daughter. Jeff is getting married to Jordan! Glenn has had a long engagement, me too Glenn! He’s willing to flirt – which I wouldn’t be willing to do. His greatest strength is that he can blend in, even if he is older than the rest of the house. He already knows that he is the odd man out. His mouth may be his greatest weakness. Would you rather go out first or third, as neither wins any money. Glenn would rather go third, he doesn’t want to come in second either. The last time he cried was during one of the rounds of questions for this season. He cried while telling a story about his daughter. First parent on this season. July 1st is Jeff’s first show on CBS All Access.
11. Natalie – non-profit event coordinator from New York.
She likes pink and glitter and wants an all girl alliance – something that has yet to ever fully happen. She’s from Venezuela. She didn’t realize she was in the real Diary Room. She doesn’t watch much tv. She watched the previous three seasons, which I’m going to take that means the past three seasons were options while in sequester. She wants an allowance and an alliance, she seems fun. She has some alliance names in mind already. She’s super single, single as a Pringle. If she can tweet anyone living or dead, she would tweet her aunt who was her best friend. I heard “let it rip, tater chip” which was a new one. I like how Jeff and Natalie getting into the conversation about the phrase. Natalie isn’t willing to sleep around, which is a good philosophy.
12. Zakiyah – preschool teacher from Charlotte.
She’s willing to be in a showmance. Last interview, these went pretty quickly. I wish our tv wouldn’t be super loud for the 20 second ad but quite for the 5 minute video. Going from 25 volume to 65 volume but we have fans blaring too. She’s a huge fan. She’s single. She wants to be up there with Jeff and Jordan it happened once and I doubt it would ever happen again. Her mouth might be one of her downfalls. She’s hoping there will be no twins or evil exes.
That’s the twelve, we just don’t know who the missing four are for the total 16 players. Those missing four are most likely the returning coaches, if those rumors are for real.
They do seem to be a fun cast.
I was going to check out some other sites recaps of the cast but I feel like I’m good on that front. Getting so excited about this season now that the cast doesn’t suck! Now I wish there was no returnees and we just got a proper cast of 16 house guests, I would be okay with the two siblings as being the only “twist” of the season – from a casting stand point.
Wikipedia has their ages and hometowns –
23 to 50, is the age ranges.
I couldn’t sleep as I kept thinking about adding the links to the websites we really like – who commit so much more of their lives to bring everyone some quality Big Brother 18 content!
I’ll update with any new websites that I find in my recap posts. If you find a good website that has images for BB18, please let me know. Thanks!
Such great websites that I hope I can at least measure up to one of these seasons.
I like how there are no stand out “hot” girls this season, sort of like season ten. Attractive, sure, but none that look like their modeling agency paid Big Brother to get free promotion.
Hamster Watch’s guest as the returning Coaches are –
BB14 Frank Eudy
BB16 Nicole Franzel
BB17 James Huling
BB17 Da’Vonne Rogers
We did not like Frank his season, but he fills Ian’s role of a house guest from the original Coaches season. Nicole and Michelle should get along, unless they are too similar to each other. James makes sense as he was quite the character, though Bridgettte may have to stay away from him. Da’Vonne was also a character last season and left too early in some people’s opinions. I didn’t mind her exit but she’s better than Audrey and Vanessa, that’s for dman sure. I’ll be okay with these four.

We’ve been making our way through RetroBig Brother, we are on Dan’s first season 10×16 now. Libra just went home and Renny is the new HoH.
