more than you ever wanted to know about the Big Brother 2 cast members.

more than you ever wanted to know about the Big Brother 2 cast members.
Thanks to their personal web presences and appearances by relatives, you can get even more information–if you want more, that is–about the Big Brother 2 house guests. Will’s brother and father are both budding writers, apparently; his dad writes in Atlanta’s newspaper about his son’s desire to be in show business, and a person presumed to be Will’s brother wrote about their entry into the World Breakdancing Championship for the University of Florida’s student newspaper. Examine pictures of Will’s Chilltown, uh, friend Shannon, or check out the third wheel’s place of work. On the opposite side of the house is Kent, whose official site is now live, adding to his presence on the web as an interviewee in this story about the home shopping network he manages. In the middle, there’s Autumn, who’s a songwriter, and this week’s head of household, Krista. Think Krista is “stupid and pathetic”? So do these people. Finally, even though he was expelled, Justin managed to get a few fans of his own. Which, if you ask me, is justincredible.
