Donny Thompson of Big Brother 16 is about to appear on the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. The fan favorite is preparing to film scenes that will air in October, but some of his fellow houseguests will go along for the ride. While the sudser isn’t bringing in the full BB16 cast, they are finding ways to incorporate a fairly sizable portion of this latest cast. What’s the scoop?
Donny’s scenes will be with Scott Clifton, who plays Liam, as well as Ashleigh Brewer, who plays Ivy. It seems that The Bold and the Beautiful will play off of what happened with some of Thompson’s fellow Big Brother 16 houseguests this summer. Many thought that certainly Donny had to be something more than a groundskeeper in his day-to-day life, and the soap will take that and run.
TV Guide shares scoop from B&B supervising producer Casey Kasprzyk. Apparently, there will be numerous costume changes for Donny, and the scenes will air on October 30 and 31. There will be quite a few other faces in those Halloween episodes that Big Brother fans will recognize.
In addition to Donny Thompson, the soap is also bringing in Cody Calafiore, Nicole Franzel, Hayden Voss, Caleb Reynolds, Amber Borzotra, Zach Rance, and Devin Shepherd. Some former houseguests will be involved in those episodes too. Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd — who recently got engaged in real life — along with Elissa Slater, Rachel Reilly, and Brendon Villegas will be involved as well.
Those former Big Brother houseguests are familiar with this soap experience, having done guest gigs before. In fact, as She Knows Soaps shared, Jeff has even been giving Donny some pointers already. It seems the soap would have loved to include even more of the BB16 houseguests, but they were a bit limited by budget and time.
Donny clearly is pretty floored by what he’s learning now that he’s out of the house. The love from the fans is a bit overwhelming, but he seems sincerely grateful and touched by all of the attention. He’s also been pretty surprised by all of the buzz in the house that he did something else in his real-life career. He thinks it’s pretty comical that some thought he might have been a professor or someone in the military.
The scenes on The Bold and the Beautiful with Big Brother 16 houseguests Donny Thompson, Nicole Franzel, and the others will be part of the Halloween episodes airing on October 30 and 31. Will you be tuning in to see how they do?
