With the premiere of Big Brother 10 only a little over a week away, rumors about the cast for the show are starting to surface on the Internet. While casts for many reality TV shows are accurately leaked early on the Internet, Big Brother has a history of fake cast lists surfacing. Not much is known for definite about the cast, other than there will be 13 houseguests this year.
Not only are rumors circulating about who is part of the Big Brother 10 cast, but rumors are also flying about when the cast will officially be released. While early rumors suggested a cast release date of July 2, it turned out that was likely only a cast photo day.
The latest word is that the cast will be revealed on the CBS Early Show on Tuesday, July 8, 2008. Also, on Friday, July 11, 2008, the Big Brother 10 house will be toured on the Early Show.
One of the rumored cast lists now circulating heavily online was posted on RealityBBQ.com and includes the following names for Big Brother 10 cast members: Renny, Dan, Steven, Michelle, Libra, Jesse, Ollie, Jerry, Memphis, Keesha, Angie, April, and Brian. Rumored descriptions of the cast include reference to a gay rodeo cowboy, the son of a Pentecostal preacher, and a seventy-five year old Big Brother fan.
The use of photos of former houseguests and the theme “Together Again” in Big Brother 10 commercials created much early speculation that Big Brother might follow in the footsteps of Survivor and do a fans versus favorites season. However, recent statements by producers and casting agents for the show seem to have killed this rumor.
One big rumor making the rounds is that one cast member has already dropped out, forcing producers to seek a replacement. The replacement is rumored to be a model. While this rumor is unverified, cast members dropping our or being cut before the season kicks off has happened before. And of course, it is par for the course for there to be at least a couple models among the cast.
