Big Brother 9: It begins…

February 8, 2008 at 10:16 am Leave a comment

Zap2It has your first look at the cast and twist of Big Brother 9, premiering on CBS next Tuesday.

Kudos to houseguest Natalie, who has finally shattered prime-time television’s grotesque bias against bikini baristas. Fight the power, sister!

I’ve felt for a long time that reality shows need to return to the more diverse casting that made them so popular in the first place. Looking at the cast for BB9, it seems that dream is way over–only one cast mate over 30, a mere sprinkling of people of color, and everyone’s basically single and horny.

At least BB has the good sense to overtly capitalize on that trend with this season’s big twist, which I won’t spoil here, but it’s in the article above if you want to read it.

I can hardly wait to find out who the next breakout reality star of Big Brother will be–could a recap gig on TV Guide Channel or Fox Reality be in the wings for one of these pretty young hopefuls??? Only time will tell, fans!
