Big Brother 2 cast announced.
The cast of Big Brother 2 has been announced, and it includes a 43-year-old interior designer who cites Dr. Laura as her hero, a 28-year-old physician whose favorite TV show is “Boy Meets World,” a 26-year-old bartender whose favorite magazine is Men’s Fitness, and a 40-year-old adult literacy teacher who says her least favorite band is ‘NSync.
+ update: during The Early Show, Julie Chen showed clips of the 12 cast members audition tapes, which demonstrate, she said, the “potential for tension in the house.” Among the highlights: Bunky is gay; Kent says “the gay lifestyle is perverse, is deviant, is not normal”; Justin once told a woman she was “a complete walking disaster”; Will thinks he comes off “cocky” but thinks he’ll have “intellectual superiority” over everyone; Shannon was going to be a flight attendant; and Krista wants to “get naked.”
