      1. Even I don’t want Jesse back after he broke my heart.

        Getting excited. I think Rachel is gorgeous. Right now, I’m liking her but I have to wait to hear her speak. Her voice might get on my nerves. No one else stand out right now but we’ll see. The count down is on.

  1. What makes everybody think that jesse is coming back? It’s only 13 HG because one girl dropped out a week ago!wonder why CBS didn’t pick someone else! But anyway, I can’t wait! This looks like a nice group of people :)

  2. I read the bios and the only one that seems half interesting is the professor. BB12 don’t let me down…Please!!! Don’t have Showtime anymore so I will be relying on this site moreso this year than I did last.

    1. Hi Kathleen,

      There is usually a lag time between when a comment is approved and when it goes live on the site. We’re covering the comments almost 24/7 but sometimes we’re slow while working on posts.
      The professor is a early favorite for me as we’ll… i’m also expecting some big and stupid things to happen with Enzo.
      -Simon

      1. Yeah, Enzo looks like a trainwreck waiting to happen. None of them really stand out as favorites for me yet, but I have a feeling the cute blonde might be more than meets the eye, So what I don’t get is whether the mole is one of the 13 or if there are 14 people in there right now – the 13 we know about plus an as yet unidentified mole. One more night to go. Hope it’s a good season!

  3. I like Brendon and Annie! (Michael)
    I like Annie and Britney! (Jessica)
    I think that Matt willl win (Michael)
    I think Rachel, Kristen or Annie will win! (Jessica)

  4. Hayden is the sabator. He is the only one who was not asked his Strategy for winning Big Brother in the profiles.

  5. I like Andrew the best not only do we share the same name but I mean check out his battle plan

    My formula: Kaysar + Will + George and Russell’s (from Survivor) game plan = Andrew

    1. Rewind the tape guys. They showed Kathy when they were in the stockards. Trust me, they did. I haven’t seen Kristen, yet, but it is still on here on the west coast.

      1. Okay, it just finished here on the west coast. Both Kathy and Kristen where shown hugging Matt after the nominations. In fact they were in the background often in that part. No real camera time other than background and the hugging.

    1. You must be blinded by her twins. I think what you meant to say is that she is f***king ugly and obnoxious. The only words she knows how to say is “you tried to come between me and my man” . That f***king annoying laugh of hers. I hope she gets what coming to her (a boot out the BB 12 house.

  6. So you are in the top 2% of Mensa Matt ????? You are such a little liar. I have checked with one of the top dogs, about as top as you can get. You are indeed in Mensa, and all of Mensa are in the top 10% of intelligent people, but theres no way you would know about any 2%. Do you by any chance sit around during Mensa meetings with your hands down your pants? I think that would seriously detract from whatever percentage you think you are in. I bet the people in your circle of Mensa friends will be thinking about where your hands have been the next time you host a meeting in your home :)
