Steven from BB10 may be back on Big Brother

It looks like forgettable Big Brother 10 houseguest turned hardcore gay porn star Steven Daigle is returning to the Big Brother house.

This weekend, he changed his Twitter handle back to StevenFromBB10, and now has someone else tweeting for him. That’s because, as he wrote in his last tweet, “Alright tweeps, gonna be MIA. ‘unexpected’ trip 2 Cali 2 help a relative with a challenge, catch ya later when I have my phone again!”

I think there’s enough coded language there to make it clear what he’s doing: “help a relative” (i.e. Big Brother) with “a challenge.” While it seems most likely for him to return to do something like host a challenge, having his phone taken away and being gone for at least three days suggests it’s more than that. As long as it doesn’t involve the possibility of Jessie joining the show again, I don’t care.

Live feed watchers haven’t reported anything about him being in the house, although there are interesting theories connected with the Saturday saboteur announcement.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
