Big Brother 10 houseguests are “all strangers”

For the first time since the third season of Big Brother, no one in the cast will have a pre-existing relationship, executive producer Allison Grodner said in an interview, the theme of which seems to be damage control from last season, trying to convince us to give the show another shot after sucking so hard. Her primarily argument is that the show is returning to its roots, which includes the return of the live studio audience.

“As far as the cast is concerned, rest assured they are all strangers,” Grodner told “[We wanted to take] the original concept of the show of strangers moving into a house — with diverse points of view, coming from all places, all different ages, all different walks of life — and try to put that back into play for this special Big Brother 10 season,” she said. However, she also said that “[t]he game starts before these people even enter the house.”

Earlier, Grodner said the cast was “extreme personalities with very extreme points of view,” and she repeats that but also emphasizes their “wide range of ages” and says there are “a lot of very specific types of people in this house.”

Finally, she promised we can “[e]xpect a completely different Big Brother from what you’ve seen this past year.” Hopefully that means that, unlike last season, it won’t suck the life out of every room its parade of boredom is broadcast into.
