Big Brother 7 voting ends tonight

Voting for the Big Brother 7 all-star cast ends this evening at 11:59 p.m. ET. The top six vote-getters will enter the house along with six or eight people selected by the producers.

Here’s who reality blurred and TVgasm think you should vote for, and while it was hard to narrow the group to six, those voted in by the audience will affect the producers’ decisions, and are therefore even more important. And for the love of our summer, please don’t vote for Mike Boogie. Or Bunky. Or Chicken George.

Also today, the candidates embarrassing series of F-list appearances to pitch themselves will come to an end, and soon the chosen few will soon be locked safely away.
