A Big Brother cast member is auditioning on this season of America’s Got Talent, as seen in a new promo.
A first look at Season 12 of America’s Got Talent was posted on the Entertainment Tonight YouTube channel earlier this week, featuring a glimpse of some of the acts that will be seen. One of those acts includes a man dressed in a lab coat, who Big Brother fans may recognize as none other than Nick Uhas from Big Brother 15.
Nick is seen giving judges Mel B and Heidi Klum some balloons, which he explains contains a gas that is “very different from helium.” The two judges inhale the contents, and they discover that their voices have gotten deeper!
Mel B ominously tells fellow judge Simon Cowell, “I am your worst nightmare,” as her voice is hilariously deep, while Klum is surprised by the sound of her voice, saying, “Hello? Oh my God!”
The act is clearly a hit with the judges as Cowell and Howie Mandel burst into laughter.
Nick previously teased his appearance on America’s Got Talent on his Instagram page, though it was not clear if he impressed the judges. Based on the reaction from the judges, though, he may be moving on to the next round.
Nick was one of the 16 houseguests who took part in Big Brother 15 in 2013. He was the second person evicted from the house, coming in 15th place. His presence on America’s Got Talent makes him the first person to appear on both shows.
Since Big Brother, Nick established a YouTube presence where he conducts various science experiments, reveals fun science facts, and occasionally posts about his time on Big Brother. His most popular video features a demonstration of the gas he uses in his America’s Got Talent audition, which is sulfur hexafluoride, aka the “deep voice gas.” Some of his other videos include examinations of salt lamps, garlic breath, radiation, coffee, liquid nitrogen, sunscreen, yawning, and more. Nick has over 56,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Nick was not seen on Tuesday night’s premiere of America’s Got Talent, though there are still plenty of auditions to be shown. It’s not yet clear what specific episode Nick will be in, but America’s Got Talent airs every Tuesday from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. There are typically six or seven audition episodes per season.
Meanwhile, the cast for Big Brother 19 is being finalized ahead of the premiere later this month. As always, there have been plenty of rumors about who will be part of the cast, including former houseguests and contestants on other CBS reality shows like Survivor. CBS has not confirmed any of these rumors, though casting went on a nationwide search for new people earlier this year, which should be an indication that there will at least be some new houseguests. Even if the show does invite back former players, though, if Nick finds success on America’s Got Talent, he could be busy for most of the summer, which would rule him out.
Big Brother has frequently brought back former houseguests to compete against new houseguests, as seen last summer in Big Brother 18 where returnees Nicole Franzel, James Huling, Da’Vonne Rogers, and Frank Eudy played with 12 new houseguests. Nicole went on to win the season in a close 5-4 over new houseguest Paul Abrahamian. Returnees have played in Big Brother 7, Big Brother 11, Big Brother 13, Big Brother 14, and Big Brother 18.
Big Brother 19 premieres Wednesday, June 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The series will continue in its regular summer timeslots of Thursdays at 9/8c, Sundays at 8/7c, and Wednesdays at 8/7c through the entire summer into September. As always, Julie Chen will return as host.
