Big Brother 7 candidates’ appearances may reveal producers’ choices

A correspondent who identifies him- or herself only as a former show insider speculates that, before voting closes for the Big Brother 7 houseguests, some have already been selected for a spot in the house.

Seven of the 20 contenders have made only one or two appearances in the past week in support of their candidacy. Those seven are Danielle, Ivette, Janelle, Jase, Mike Boogie, Nakomis, and Dr. Will.

The low number of public appearances would suggest that, if the audience doesn’t vote them in, they’ll be among the producers’ selections, and thus have no need to campaign. As the correspondent points out, “There’s definitely something fishy going on, because there’s no way Alison, the most annoying contestant on earth, would actually score more airtime than dreamy Dr. Will.”

It’s an interesting theory, although the choices don’t seem entirely rational. One would imagine that Kaysar, for example, would get a spot before Nakomis or Danielle. The rest, however, seem like people who will definitely be in the house regardless of which six houseguests the public chooses.

Update: A reliable source tells me that CBS organized a tiny number of appearances, like one or two, for each cast member. Besides that, cast members were free to organize their own appearances, hence the discrepancies. Perhaps some are more confident–or desperate–than others.
