Different lists of Big Brother All-Stars candidates accidentally revealed on CBS.com

The 20 candidates for the all-star edition of Big Brother have been (apparently accidentally) revealed CBS.com. Strangely, the site is showing at least two separate lists of possible houseguests. (The list is supposed to be officially unveiled June 21, when viewers will be able to vote for their favorites from a group of 20; only the top six will enter the house, along with a group that producers select.)

At 6:09 p.m. ET, I went to the show’s official site and the following list of candidates, written in white text and formatted as a poll, came up instead of the show’s actual site, which was visible just moments earlier:

Alison
Amy
Brittany
David
Diane
Drew
Erica
Jack
James
Janelle
Jason
Josh
Kaysar
Maggie
Mike
Monica
Nicole
Roddy
Shannon
Will

Earlier today, JokersUpdates.com posted a screenshot that showed a slightly different list:

Alison
Bunky
Dana
Danielle
Diane
Erika
George
Howie
Ivette
James
Janelle
Jase
Kaysar
Lisa
Marcellas
Michael
Mike
Monica
Nakomis
Will

Why two different lists? And why is their site working sometimes and not other times? Maybe someone screwed up, or maybe they’re screwing with us.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
