Big Brother Season 9 - Official Thread

Big Brother Season 9 returns to CBS on Feb. 12th @ 9:00pm EST. This will be the first ever "winter edition" of Big Brother thanks to the writers strike. The names of the 14 new house guests are expected to be revealed on February 4th, 2008.

Stuck thread, a little early but might as well make it "official".

Any hope of this being in HD this season? Somehow I doubt it.

I doubt it too. Only Fox does reality in HD.

So, will it be on Showtime again (live feeds)?

Good stuff. Yeah, I would love to see BB in HD, but considering how many cameras they have in that place, I doubt it. Looking forward to the new season!

Ahhh... nice. I'm jealous!

Here's a CBS Promo of the new season:

Tag line: 14 People, One House & More Secrets Than You Can Count!

Hmmmm... I guess the theme this season is secrets.

I used to watch the SHowtime feeds this past summer. Fed Ex'd my sister a slingbox and she kindly sent me the link to watch
I'd miss the odd show because she forgot to turn on the box but it was funny to watch when it was all working good. Im going to have to get here to set it up again for this season

Here is the rumored to be Leaked List of Players

Big Brother 9
House Guest Names Leaked?

It seems like no Big Brother preseason is complete without a list of House Guest names being leaked. Last year the list wasn't even close, but it did provide some food for thought. This year the list is only two days prior to the official release of Big Brother 9 House Guests and their being officially announced by CBS on the Wednesday Early Show.


The suspiciously leaked List

BB9 HOUSEGUESTS - SECRET TWIST

Look for these people in the house! All of these house guests have some sort of weird secret about themselves. Some are more extreme than others of course. The twist is that seven of them have a secret while the other people they are entering with are people that are oblivious to the secret. Eventually the secrets will be revealed. They are not in teams.

With a secret:

Kara Wallace
22 years old
SECRET: It has to do something with like her husband and how she cheated on him about a billion times. She might be having duel relationships that no one knows about.

Destiny Izzarne
28 years old
SECRET: Is really a man. I'm thinking she's had the full surgery so she is now technically a woman. First transsexual on the show.

Scott Donahue
25 years old
SECRET: Works for some weird brand of porno company. The porno he distributes is really awkward and not just "sex" but more to do with a fetish.

Jackie Oliphant
21 years old
SECRET: Has had extensive plastic surgery. Hasn't really told anyone about it.

John Rolfe
20 years old
SECRET: He's not out to his brother.

Ray Cowen
30 years old
SECRET: Something to do with an STD.

Maverick Madsen
47 years old
SECRET: He spent time in jail a long time ago.


Without a secret:

Ryan Wallace
24 years old
Kara's husband. Who doesn't know about the other guy or other guys in her life.

Sabine Willis
26 years old
Destiny's best friend who is unaware of her being a transsexual.

Cassie Lyons
24 years old
Girlfriend of Scott. Doesn't know of his porno king status.

Veronica Murphy
36 years old
Jackie's boss? Something to do with where she works.

Evan Rolfe
23 years old
John's brother who doesn't know that he's gay. Apparently homophobic?

Andy Johnson
27 years old
Best friends, Slept with the same girl. Ray first (with STD) then Andy...Andy could possibly have an STD? Apparently they are super close friends from college.

Misty Madsen
22 years old
Daughter of Maverick. Doesn't know of his fathers past involvement with the law

Interesting. Looks like Julie Chen is going to officially announce the guests on Feb. 6th, 2008 on CBS. And the other twist is that there will be 16 guests as opposed to the usual 14.

My guide on BEV seems to indicate it will be an HD program. Also, the SD station says that HD is available from the HD channel.

Maybe the could afford HD cameras with all the money they are saving by not paying writers...
