The Big Brother 16 rumors are flying, with reports indicating that former power players “Evel” Dick Donato and attempted mastermind Eric Stein.
The CBS summer reality show is still a few weeks away from announcing the official cast, but reporters are circulating the internet that BB16 is working on a big but familiar twist — the return of some fan favorites.
One of the most prominent Big Brother 16 rumors includes the return of Frank Eudy, the son of famous wrestler Sid Vicious. Frank was a force in Big Brother 14, surviving five times on the block before finally being sent home late in the game.
Frank lost a bit of fan support when he teamed up with hated coach Boogie, but ended up winning America’s Favorite anyway. If selected to return to the game, Frank Eudy would certainly bring a built-in fan base.
Other Big Brother 16 rumors point to a twist copied from another CBS reality show. The blog Big Brother Network notes:
While there are several rumors working their way through the mill, one of the more plausible variations involves a Survivor inspired Blood Vs Water twist for Big Brother 16 this summer. For those unfamiliar with the Blood Vs Water theme, relationships (family members or loved ones) were brought to the game as pairs and then split up the morning the game began. Pitted against each other the “blood” competed on opposite teams before eventually being reunited at the tribe merge.
The report went on to note that Big Brother has seen some strong family alliances in the past, most notably Evel Dick and Danielle Donato, and speculated that CBS may call on the Donatos again to stir up the house.
Other family members mentioned were the Reilly sisters, Rachel and Elissa. This report seemed at least a bit plausible given that Elissa was in Los Angeles last week.
It appears that fans may have a greater say in the 2014 edition of Big Brother. A user on JokerUpdates found on the show’s live links that live feed subscribers will get to vote on is which house guest has to do laundry for the day.
Fans who want to find out if the Big Brother 16 rumors come true still have to wait a few weeks. The premiere of BB16 is set for Wednesday, June 26.
