Big Brother fan sites are buzzing over a possible web mistake by CBS that might have revealed the top twenty for Big Brother All-Stars. JokersUpdates.com members posted a link to a CBS page in their forum that contained the question “Which of your favorite Big Brother contestants would you like to see compete again in Big Brother: All-Stars?” followed by a list of twenty names. The names in the survey are listed below, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know.
We personally clicked on the link while the survey was still live, and while the page first appeared to be a page of blank radio buttons, a quick highlight of the screen revealed twenty names that correspond with previous Big Brother houseguests. The twenty names were Alison, Bunky, Dana, Danielle, Diane, Erika, George, Howie, Ivette, James, Janelle, Jase, Kaysar, Lisa, Marcellas, Michael, Mike, Monica, Nakomis, and Will.
While some of the names obviously can be correlated to a specific houseguest from a specific Big Brother season, a couple of the names like Will, Michael, and Mike could correlate to a couple different houseguests. RealityBBQ.com posts that it’s likely Will Kirby and Mike “Boogie” Malin from Big Brother 2 and likely Michael “Cowboy” Ellis. The survey has since been removed from the CBS website.
The official reveal of the top twenty candidates from previous Big Brother seasons is not set to take place until Wednesday, June 21 at 8PM ET/PT. Web voting will open after candidates are officially revealed starting at midnight ET/9PM PT. The polls will close on Wednesday, June 28 at 11:59PM ET/8:59PM PT.
Update: CBS appears to be having a little fun with viewers (or trying to cover up for an earlier mistake). The CBS website now shows a new Big Brother survey with several names different from what was shown on the earlier survey. The new survey names are Alison, Amy, Brittany, David, Diane, Drew, Erica, Jack, James, Janelle, Jason, Josh, Kaysar, Maggie, Mike, Monica, Nicole, Roddy, Shannon, and Will. JokersUpdates.com posters noticed that Erika’s name is spelled incorrectly on the second survey (which has some wondering if it was a rush job to cover up the earlier list).
