Big Brother 6 cast announced

With just a week to go before the big debut, Big Brother 6 has revealed its largest cast ever.

Only four of the 14 cast members are in their 30s, and only two are married, which should encourage hook-ups once the NyQuil starts flowing. And just looking at their pictures suggests that the vast majority is whiter than the Brady Bunch; the images look like a spread from the Abercrombie and Fitch Quarterly, except without all the half-naked humping.

CBS has helpfully provided their last names in a press release, so now we have a week to guess who’s gay and try to figure out their secrets. This is, after all, the Summer of Secrets, and who knows what Arnold and Allison might have in store for us? Will they pull the most outrageous move of all and shock the world by casting interesting, dynamic people?
