Tonight on Big Brother After Dark, fans got to watch a sleepy group of houseguests. As most of the cast was sleeping, a small group gathered in a bedroom to talk. They got onto the subject of casting opportunities and the recruiting that Big Brother has started over the last few years. Mark was sharing that the casting crew reviews random Instagram accounts, as well as other social media, looking for contestants. This surprised Kevin who, as it turns out, was at the right place at the right time.

Kevin is from Boston and is a stay-at-home dad. According to Joker’s Updates, he had gone to his daughter’s job to meet her, but she had to work late. She told him it would be a couple of hours, so he had time to kill, and right across the street, they were doing auditions for BB19. He walked in and was given No. 262 out of about 490 applicants. A couple of hours later, he had made an impression.
