Big Brother 11’s Michele is on Playboy’s sex-on-TV reality show Foursome

Michele Noonan, the bisexual neuroscientist who came in fourth place on Big Brother 11 last summer, will be on Playboy TV’s Foursome this fall, presumably having sex on camera with fellow cast members. She follows in the footsteps of her fellow season 11 houseguest Braden Bacha, who appeared on the show prior to his time in the house.

Michele wrote on Twitter Sunday that she’s “finally taping [a] dating show” this week, and Playboy often refers to Foursome as a dating show, so it’s likely filming now. But Playboy TV already has a bio up for Michele that confirms she’s on the show:

“‘Big Brother’ fans will instantly recognize Michele as one of the sexy housemates who declared her bisexuality back in season 11. Now we’re getting her to take that ‘free love’ attitude even further with a night in the Hollywood Foursome house! Originally from New Jersey, this hottie holds a PhD in neuroscience and has mastered the art of boy/girl seduction.”

Foursome‘s fourth season debuts Sept. 18, and though it’s not clear exactly when Michele’s episode will air, her bio is one of four currently on the site, so it’s likely they’re the first episode cast. The show’s site, by the way, promises “even more well-known reality stars”–that’s plural, so there are more to come (so to speak.)

When the show was casting back in March, it revealed that cast members get $500 and have to be “wild, uninhibited and sexually open,” because “nudity is required.”

Update: Michele told me on Twitter that her compensation wasn’t $500: “I was paid much more than 500 to do the show,” she wrote.

Here’s a work-safe trailer for the show:

A review of the finale of summer's best reality series, which wasn't always perfect but was thoroughly entertaining right down to the finish, which included phenomenal challenges and special effects. Will ABC give it a second season?
