Toni Ferrari called Big Brother 6 cast members to reveal all-star alliances

Before a single person has been eliminated from Big Brother 7, there’s already drama, and it’s coming from an unlikely source.

Reality queen Toni Ferrari–star of Paradise Hotel and Kill Reality, among other shows, and the victim of reality-related harassment–apparently called members of the sixth season cast well before the all-star show began. She revealed alliances that other houseguests were planning if they made it into the house.

Even more strangely, “the revelations about Ferrari have grown into a theory that there are two HouseGuests playing the game as a couple who will be awarded a bonus if they make it to the final two,” according to JAM! Showbiz. That’d essentially be a repeat of last season’s twist, which was quickly discovered by Kaysar and others. Live feed watchers heard conversations about all of this Tuesday night, and JAM! Showbiz summarizes them:

“HouseGuest Janelle Pierzina explained how Ferrari and ‘Big Brother — All Stars’ player Diane Henry were roommates but had a falling out. After Ferrari moved out, it is claimed she called ‘All-Star’ players revealing Henry’s strategy of setting up a pre-series alliance (the so-called Mr. and Mrs. Smith Alliance) with Jase Wirey and possibly Alison Irwin and Nakomas (Jennifer) Dedmon. Others in the Season Six Alliance agreed that they too had received similar phone calls and spoke with Ferrari.”

That Toni called the cast members, or that some houseguests pre-planned alliances, would both be more surprising if we didn’t already know that ex-reality show members all live, bathe, sleep, and have sex in the same Vaseline-filled kiddie pool.
