Age: 26
Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pa. (living in West Hollywood, Calif.)
Occupation: Owner of a Mobile Spray Tanning Company
Three adjectives that describe you: Vivacious, loving, charismatic, spark plug and enthusiastic.  That was five – OOPS!
Favorite Activities: Hiking, yoga, painting, meditating, making dream boards, sunbathing, swimming, snowboarding and boating.
Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Not being able to have your own space and alone time. I love being around people, but I’m definitely one to have my special me time.
Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” Play everyone! I will come off as the dumb ditzy blonde, but take it to the end because I’m actually really smart and good at reading through people’s lies.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: Jeff is my favorite because I just want to eat him up…he was so loyal and kind…especially to Jordan. Jerry is my least favorite since he just floated his way through the game. I’m not a fan of floaters.
What are you afraid of: Mosquitoes.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Starting my own business and making the move out to the West Coast.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Give LOVE to the things in life that you love and give no attention to the things you don’t love.
What would you take into the house and why: Music, because it keeps me sane and uplifts my mood in minutes.  My dream book because I love looking at it everyday. Finally, frankincense oil, because it heals everything and makes you forever young.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Change the world one day at a time and show people that giving love and being open to learning about love (not so literally) will change your attitude and make you happy forever.

Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Being cut off from the outside world and not being able to listen to music or take pictures.
Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” To be considered someone that isn’t a threat and someone that doesn’t seem very smart. The people that are a threat are usually eliminated first.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: I love Jordan and I can’t stand Rachel. Rachel is beyond annoying and fake with her whining and backstabbing. Jordan seemed honest, down to earth and fun.
What are you afraid of: I am terrified of snakes, dying young, heights and never finding my true love.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Finally graduating Nursing school and passing my NCLEX on the first try.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… love everything as if you were about to lose it.
What would you take into the house and why: My camera because I love taking pictures; my iPad so I can play games and listen to my music; and my cell phone because I’m a chatterbug and love talking to people.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Be a happy camper. I guess I would deal with the new challenges that I faced with fame, but I wouldn’t hate it. I wouldn’t mind being famous.

Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Making sure my hair is camera ready all the time.
Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” Absolutely. Numbers are important, so I want to set up a “Dream Team,” all playing certain roles. I would need a Larry Bird, a good country boy or girl who’s honest and competitive; a Charles Barkley, an unmovable object possibly with a bit of a harsh attitude; a Patrick Ewing, somebody that knows the game and is reliable; a Michael Jordan, somebody who’s a baller that can win competitions; and me as Magic Johnson, friendly guy playing point and running the show.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: Most: Chill Town – they were great at the game and great at entertaining. Least: Daniele – she wines and complains too much and was ungrateful to her dad for the chance to even make it on the show.

Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Being disconnected from sports, family, friends, internet and TV.
Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” I want to make an alliance with about six people and I’d like to be seen as maybe the fourth strongest in the group, that way it wouldn’t be me going up if the other side gained the power.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: My all-time favorite has to be Dr. Will from BB2/BB7. He played the game with absolute finesse both times, and as a 10 year old watching BB2, I definitely would say I idolized him back then.
What are you afraid of: I’m definitely afraid of venomous snakes and any large, deadly animals, simply because they’re extremely dangerous. I also have a real fear of vomiting because it’s really painful and a fear of drowning since I feel like it’d be one of the worst ways to die.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: My proudest accomplishment so far in life is going to Tulane, far away from my family and old friends, studying the hardest major I could possibly take, and surviving it for three years.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… I came here to kick butt and chew bubblegum, but I’m all out of bubblegum.
What would you take into the house and why: My collection of glasses: I have these glasses that can go with everything I wear. A picture of my family: I definitely will really miss them. My guitar: I recently picked up guitar and feel it’s an awesome way to relieve stress. Also, it does get me a fair amount of attention from girls.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: I’d try to live my life normally again. I don’t really have any intentions of going into acting or anything like that. I’d probably just try to go back to Chemical Engineering and do what I’ve always wanted to do.

Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: No contact with family and friends. It will be tough, but I have been on very long tours far away from my loved ones and survived, so I can do this.
Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” I’m going to be me. It’s a simple answer, but a fun twisted puzzle to unfold.
What are you afraid of: Roller coasters. Not too keen on heights either.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: I’m so very proud of every album I’ve ever worked on. A piece of my heart and soul are located within.

What would you take into the house and why: Guitar, a laptop to record my music and a flat iron.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Head right back into the studio and record a full length album and then head out on the road with my band and tour.

Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” Of course I have a strategy, but is it smart to tell you? Is this a trick question?
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: I like Evil Dick the most because he’s “real.” I don’t like the red headed girl that got engaged to one of the other guys….Rachel? She thinks a lot of herself and her laugh is so annoying!

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Everything happens for a reason… it’s a cliché, but true.

Hometown: Louisville, Ky.
Occupation: Marketing Consultant

Favorite Activities: Running, biking and lunching with good friends.
Most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: It will be difficult to live with other people. I’m used to living on my own and having my space, but I’m always up for a challenge.
Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” I would probably not tell the other roommates my profession and play the “nice guy,” “someone you can trust” role. I think I would let alliances form first and then manipulate my way into control of the game.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: I just watched the last season but I did not like Evil Dick; arrogant people are not my cup of tea. I did like Rachel. She was outgoing and fun to watch.
What are you afraid of: Snakes and bananas creep me out.

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… If you want something done, do it yourself.
What would you take into the house and why: A flat iron since I have crazy hair and I have to keep it in check! An iPod because music helps me think and meditate. A bottle of Woodford Reserve… I’m from Kentucky – Bourbon — it’s in my blood.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: I wouldn’t change much in my life. Fame comes and goes. I would however probably use a little bit of press to help bring light to causes close to my heart.

Strategy for winning “Big Brother:” To make as much confusion in the house in order to take the attention off of me.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: My least favorite was Rachel because I would have shot myself if I was in that house with her. There is nobody I really respected who ever played the game.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: My two children.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… only the good die young.
What would you take into the house and why: Cigarettes and vodka.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: I would be on All-Stars.

Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… Inspire, dream, cook. That’s how you become GREAT!

Big-brother-14-returning-alumniIn addition to these all NEW Cast of Big Brother 14 House Guests there will also be FOUR (4) returning House Guests. The 4 Big Brother Alumni Cast members that have been chosen to return were picked because they were the most successful players that have played the game in the last 13 seasons. The four RUMOURED returning house guests are Mike “Boogie” Malin, Rachel Reilly, Janelle Pierzina and Dan Gheesling. This is just a rumour and we will not know the actual identity of the four until they reveal them during the Big Brother 14 première on July 12, 2012.


In a series first, four of the most successful players in Big Brother history will return to play their own game — for their own separate prize. The identities of the four returning players and details surrounding their mission inside the house will be revealed during the season premiere on Thursday, July 12th at 9/8c! You won’t want to miss it!

Hate the fact that there are returning house guests again this year BUTT, if if they are playing for their own prize, maby it will work out for the best 🙂 Can’t wait for the show to start!


Glad to be back for another year!
I’ll be spending all my summer reading this page, as usual.

Thanks for all the bios, Simon!
Greetings from Argentina!

joe the barber

love the cast


Not impressed with this cast.


i’m not too impressed either – but can’t be worse than all the useless bunch of dumb newbs that were casted last year (ie. Adam, Lawon, Shelly, Kalia, Porscha -even though she came in second) last season was frustrating to watch


i’m not seeing this mike guy anywhere, and i’m only seeing 12 newbs, not 14. an oversight or do we already have someone drop out at the last second.. again?


only 12.. MIke was dropped


you disappoint me yet again, starscream. although 12/4 would be more fair.. 3 newbs per mentor. with 14, it would’ve been hard to cut 2 houseguests in half.


If Rachel does return, then her and Ashley will be BFF’s because of the “I Hate Floater” policy they both have


Oh great… Another Hantz loser… Three of them CBS? Really??


4 lol, dont forget ‘Flipped off’ is showing another brother. I’m a fan of the Hanz’s if for nothing else but pure TV gold!


So True..


Awh man, I loved Russell…He played the the game hard!!! But that nephew and his father were a little creepy. There’s the fix for Mike…bring in Russell…he’d be new to BB. Hey you think they are related, really???


Do you really think Rachel would be casted for this ? she did go to the press thing so she already knows what everything looks like. kinda takes the surprise away a little bit? idk just thought of that. and Rachel is not really successful to some other previous house guests tbh imo.


6 HOHs and 4 vetos

Probably the most nominated contestant on the whole USA Big Brother…What makes you think that’s NOT successful?


Numbers don’t mean anything and her win on BB was about as exciting as watching BB1(which, I spared my sanity by not sitting through). I’m actually seconding her not being on this season. It will probably be an equally annoying character, but I bet BB will only have her cameo this season just to avoid the predictable.


Oh Dr. Will please come back and remind everyone why controlling douchebags always win big brother
was really hoping for all-stars 2 but oh well


So the whole “biggest cast” thing is down the drain, right?

Also I HATE, HATE HATE HATE Mike “Boogie”. I wish James Zinkand from BB9 would replace him ;]


I can’t stand boogie as well.. pretty much my least favourite big brother player.


I agree, Boogie is just a blowhard. Everyone seems to love chill town, but I hated them. I wish they would just get back to all newbies. The bringing back older players should only be for all-stars.


Only Janelle and Dan deserve the title of having done the best. Rachel lost her first season and won the second because she was helped by production. As for Boogie, the only thing he had going for him was Dr. Will. Without Will, he would have never made allstars, they were a pair, and they got picked because of Will. James BB6, Eric BB8, ED, Dani, Danielle BB3 and Crazy James BB9 are all much more deserving than Boogie and Rachel. Please BB. No Rachel or I am hitting the cancel button on my feeds.


I have too hard of a time believing CBS would have Rachel in the house again… argh we’ll have to wait until Thursday I guess.


Ya James is my booyyy! I also really respected Danielle BB3 [;


I agree Janelle, Dani (bb8/13), Dan and James (bb6/7) and ED are the only people i can think that would be eligble to be the best game players. clearly ed isint going to be a mentor so just gonna have to wait and see.

Hillary S.

If Rachel is on this season again, i’m not watching!!! Devoted BB fan and Devoted onlinebigbrother fan tooo! Please don’t let this rumor be true!


if the alumns include Rachel, Jesse, or Evil Dick.. I won’t be watching at all.


oh girl, crazy evil dick is awsome TV. I’d love to see janelle on again… but with a baby at home, its doubtful.


i thought one of the promo said the most HGs ever. so do you guys think there will be more cast members not listed. I would like to see 4 to a team


YA.. I’m hearing that maybe the mentors are going to be playing a different game that runs parallel to the Big Brother Game. Good ol AG said in a TV guide interview that no old players are returning.. She lies 99% of the time but maybe this is the 1%

I’m trying to figure this all out. we’ll post it up once theres a clear picture


Chloe, you are seriously commenting each time about how you don’t like Rachel. Rachel was the best on her season and production that year all thought Dani would take it and tried putting challenges where Dani would excel but it just did not happen for Dani. Also, if you go on other Big Brother sites and the CBS site, A LOT of people like Rachel from season 13, so you all can say whatever you like. A lot of people will still watch even if you Rachel haters don’t. It doesn’t seem like she will come back, but if she does Rachel haters cancel your live feeds!!!


We all have the right to like or dislike whoever we please, and we have the same right to express what we think. That’s why I like this site, because all opinions are welcome and people have a pretty thick skin here. Kudos to Dawg and Simon for having the best site!

Rachel is popular with the edited TV show viewers, but the hardcore fans that watch the feeds tend to not like her. They are two different audiences. Whatever. I know CBS reads the blogs, so I state my opinion freely in hopes that the network remembers the feed watchers more than they have the last few seasons. I also think it’s not fair to put vets on the same playing field as newbies, not just because they have experience, but because the alumni know each other. It gives them an advantage.


Chloe you are pretty much dead on with your opinion of Rachel, just try to ignore people like Gina she is still eating the cat food.


I swear the ONLY reason people liked Rachel AND Brendan season 13 was because they were with Jeff and Jordan.

i don’t believe CBS wanted Dani to win it at all! They are so stuck on jeff & Jordan its unreal. They wanted Jeff to take the money. And if not Jeff, Rachel, Brendan or Jordan just to appease to the JJ fans. I laughed at the fact america voted jeff americas favorite. no way in hell.

and CBS even admitted it was scripted…


Gina, Don’t listen to these people. I totally agree with you. Rachel is best player ever. CBS PRODUCTION DIDN’T HELP HER. She did it on her own. Jeff is also best player ever also. They all just haters! That why people, IF YOU DON’T LIKE RACHEL, DON’T BOTHER TO WATCH IT. And Daniele, the only reason Daniele is a horrible player because she follows her dad footstep. She is whiny brat.


bb executive producer said that won’t be any houseguest from last season.


This is a difficult cast! I can’t really look at anyone and say “I’m gonna like them”, but sometimes at the beginning when I think I’m going to like someone I end up hating them when they enter the house or open their mouth. Like Adam from last year or lydia. Not too happy about returning hourseguests, but I’ll manage. All these returning houseguests kinda defeats the purpose of the All Star seasons in my opinion. Hopefully Dan will return though!!! He’s the only one I want to see back out of that rumored list. Please god no Rachel, it is getting to be a little much.

T that's Me!

So ready for the season to just get under way! Great to be back amongst the regulars and of course, with Simon and Dawg!!! 😉


Great to have you back.. going to be a fun summer 🙂


Rachel…again?? This is what… her third year in a row on this show? And she just completed The Amazing Race? I’m so tired of the returning alumni twist, if that’s your only trick then look OVER Rachel, there are other past members. Even if it is a rumor, I don’t like that she’s the first name thrown out there


I thought we always started out with 14! What is with this 12? And the most HG’s ever? With the 4 returning that would make it 16, I think the highest there has been is 17?


LOL….I know right off the bat half these people are gonna have no game whatsoever yo. Maybe more than half.


Please no more Rachel the world had enough of her overexposure.


WOW the BB casting never ceases to amaze me .The show was successful w/o the model/actress wannabe ‘s why is CBS turning big brother into MTV”s real world ? Why is Janelle leaving her 7 month old baby for BB ? & No one cares about 40 year old Mike form BB 2 !!!!!

Kara -obviously she’s already famous ,she has 32000 followers and from her interviews seems boring as hell!
Shane- aka mr cosmo model ..enough said
Danielle – another model wannabe ..already saw her website so maybe modeling didnt work out so she’s playing the nurse thing who knows
Frank- daddy the wrestler got his unemployed son on TV
Willie- really cbs? are u kidding me?
Wil- has a stupid show on you tube with over 1 million followers , also an ex american idol wannabe
Jojo- wannabe model ..
Jen- music wannabe

Ashley- WOW someone not trying to be a model


I completely agree. Season 2 is still the best ever because the people were real. There were no stereotypes, all ages, many of them mature adults, all kinds of backgrounds, the interactions were so cool, they played the game hard. The gay guy wasn’t your stereotypical queen (Will, Dustin, Kevin, Stephen, Ragan), the black woman wasn’t your stereotypical feisty black woman we have seen every season (Jameka, Libra, Cheema, Kalia), etc. They were mostly intelligent people and BB made them work together for things like a toaster, a microwave, a gym, the hot tub. There was a bit of eye candy for the girls and the guys, but nothing like now. It seems you have to already have a following to even be considered by casting. Casting at CBS sounds like a pretty slack job. It seems to get suckier every season since then, with season 6, 8 and especially 10 being the exception.


Jen….. wannabe musician ??? are you f’ in kidding me. Maybe one of the best female bass players of all time. Kittie….. best girl metal band ever! even one of the best metal bands off all time (yes guys/or girls). you obviously only listen to pop music. idiot.

I love love Janelle I can’t wait to watch next Thursday


I liked Janelle too however I liked the single , twenty something Janelle not he married w/ a baby Janelle. I think if CBS is so determined to bring back past house guests they should be from BB8 -BB12.


No way!!! Janelle if like a wine fine wine…interested to see how she has evolved…she was so smart too.


“In a series first, four of the most successful players in Big Brother history will return to play their own game — for their own separate prize. The identities of the four returning players and details surrounding their mission inside the house will be revealed during the season premiere on Thursday, July 12th at 9/8c! You won’t want to miss it!”

That’s encouraging! Most of the best players I doubt would come back. Dr. Will said he will never do reality tv again since he’s married and busy with his profession. Janelle has a baby, don’t think she would play. Dan, maybe, but I don’t think so. ED would do it I think, and I would like that, was so disappointed last season because he might have saved a horrible season, and technically he wasn’t on last season, Danielle season 3 might do it if given the chance. Gawd I hope they don’t bring back Drew or Maggie or Jun!!! “Most successful should mean either final 2 or someone who rocked competitions, so the list in my opinion is limited. I think Eric BB8 deserves a chance, he got screwed by the twist, but he had game, and James BB 6 and 7 is a schemer, won competitions when he needed to, should have gone farther both times he played. If we have to have vets, it’s a some consolation that they play a parallel game for their own prize. Kind of makes all stars pointless tho.


Hopefully Janelle is coming back two seasons in #3 hopefully she could pull it off.

As for Rachel….she is going in by herself so there would be no “No one comes between me and my man!” Im a fan of hers and she is actually quite interesting

Mike- No Chill Town this season =(

Dan- Ive had a crush on him since season 10 and hopefully he also is in the top 3


cant wait until this season starts


Can I just say nerd love to Ian he is so cute!


showmance predictions – shane and ashley


Has anyone noticed that Ragan isn’t doing Rumor Control this preseason? Fishy……


Yeah, I did notice that, and it’s encouraging that Rachel is doing rumour control. Hopefully it means she isn’t coming back. I don’t know if Ragan deserves the title of best players. He was catty, he made me laugh, but I don’t know if I can stand watching him cry all summer long. If anyone from season 12 deserves another kick at the can, it would be Enzo. He’s fun, he knows how to plant grenades, and nobody wears a penguin suit like the meow meow.


Rachel coming back would be so terrible. I do hope they are not going in that direction. James would be cool. Janelle would be okay. Regan would even be good to see. Boogey is old now, so please, NO!! Let’s give the grenade thrower ONE MORE shot. I would love to see Mr. Grenade have ONE MORE shot. If ya don’t know who Mr. Grenade is, then well, you’ve not been a loyal fan.

PLEASE CBS, give us something worthwhile to watch.


I LOVE the band Kittie!! YAY


I have noticed that James has been very quiet on Twitter lately. Could that mean he may be coming bacK??
I would like to see him on there again.


james would be a great person to have on BB14..


Ian Terry is my Favorite


Does anyone realize that Shelly’s twitter account is protected? She must still be getting really bad messages, etc.
She is so last year…people really need to get over it.


Every year it’s the same cast. No excitement it’s always models jocks and ” I wanna be famous” types. Was hoping the surprise would be a REAL cast of normal folks who just want to play the game.


I loved her in her season and also in last season but I don’t think I can stand another season of that laugh!!!


As much as I love the hatred Rachel boils up in me, I just can’t do another season. It’s too emotionally draining haha!

Would ultimately like to see Dr. Will, Janelle, Jen, and maybe James. Those would bring the lulz. and of course Dr. Will would blindside them all and win!


Also, I just noticed Jeff leads the pack at 12% on the CBS website.
At this point all I can do is facepalm.


I noticed that this morning.. if it was left up to a vote we would get Jeff. Jordan, Rachel and Brnedon back in the house for bb14 🙁


Too many hopeless housewives voting 🙁

I’d much rather see conniving back stabbers go at it rather than a neurotic love connection for a third straight season.


Most of the players on the CBS site don’t deserve to be called best players. Come on CBS! Nasty Gnatalie? Please don’t bring her back! Howie??? I like him, he’s fun to watch, but he isn’t even close to being a best player. Kaysar I liked in his first season, not so much in all stars, but he went out pre jury both times and made a really dumb move in the pressure cooker challenge. Brittney? I love the girl, she was my fave on her season, but she isn’t a great strategist, certainly not on par with Janelle. Jessie??? Renny??? Great players????? No way. The only ones shown on the website that deserve to be called the best are Will, Janelle, Dan, Dick, Danielle and maybe Enzo. There are other greats that didn’t make CBS’s list, like Danielle BB3, James BB 6/7, Eric BB8, Crazy James BB9. I really don’t think Dr. Will and Janelle will be coming back, Dan, maybe, Dani is doing rumour control, so probably not, Dick – if we have to see old players give us ED!! I’m sure Enzo would come back if given the chance. That leaves a bunch of undeserving players as possible returnees. I hope the newbs make up for CBS’s obsession with has beens and give us a great season.


I dont think Janelle is coming back. She has a young baby. I swear I saw a tweet where she denied she would return this season…although I can’t find the tweet now! I would love to see all returning players NOT from last season.


We’ll know if Janelle is on tonight because she’s scheduled to do Rumor Control, if she shows up, then she’s probably not on this season. I personally think it’s Janelle, Boogie, Dan, and Britney/Renny.


Simon or Dawg, do you know when the HG enter the house? I think last year they were inside a full week before the premiere.


last year it was the Sunday before the start date… it must be either sat or sun this year


According to ED tweets, the mentors can only win $100K, even if one of their people wins, and he says he doesn’t want to blow the chance to be on again, says that he wants to be the first person to win twice. So I guess that means no Dick this season. The pool of “talent” keeps getting smaller.


I doubt Janelle would be one of the houseguests.. didnt she just have a baby?


Shane does look like Tom Cruise. If you need, the need for speed!
