Ryan and Jen appear to already be dating

CBS’ announcement of the cast and twist for Big Brother 9 said that this season features “the first-ever all-single cast,” who will be paired with their soulmates.

But two of the 16 may already be dating: Ryan and Jen appear together in photographs on their MySpace pages, RealityBBQ discovered. They seem to be together currently, as Ryan and Jen both use photos of themselves together as their primary profile pictures.

Of course, it’s possible that producers may be pairing them with other people to increase the drama. Another site, Big Brother Access, points out that the inside of the house has just 14 photos on the memory wall and places at the table, so perhaps two people–Jen and Ryan, even?–will enter the house later. Or perhaps they added two contestants and then added more photos and place settings.

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.
