'Big Brother 8' announces cast

From Daily Variety...
    It seems the folks at Daily Variety were in a big hurry to have the scoop on this. Why do I say this? Well... Have a good look at Dick(44) and Nick(25). Unless they are identical father and son, Houston, we have a problem. Thanks to Shaily for scoping it out. I'd just thought they were twins.

And this year's contestants are:

This is Nick. Not Dick, who was incorrectly ID'd as Nick and Dick.
Nick, 25
Kimball, Minn.
Single, Beyond Yummy
My 1st Jacuzzi Candidate
Former Pro Football Player

CBS is making "Big Brother 8" more interactive than past editions, plotting a twist in which one of the game's players will be controlled by the whims of the American public.

Net's annual summer sudser, which kicks off July 5 at 8 p.m., has also locked in its cast. It'll once again be a young bunch, with most of the 14 players in their 20s-- and the oldest contestant just 44.

And, in a nod to a past "Big Brother" theme in which players were surprised to find out that their ex-flames had been recruited, this year's cast will include a few pairs of players with unresolved beefs.

The biggest twist, however, is a game element called "America's Player." In a nutshell, that contestant will have the chance to win extra sums of money-- but only if they carry out certain actions mandated by viewers via internet or text message voting. Chosen player might be asked to vote somebody out of the house or something more personal, such as flirting with another player. Eye is hoping the twist will give viewers more of a stake in the outcome of the game, in the same way auds who watch "American Idol" get to shape that competition.

Theme for this year's "Brother" house is "Alice in Wonderland," with a number of eclectic touches throughout the pad (think really big beds and tiny chairs).

CBS has high hopes for this year's edition of "Brother," the Allison Grodner and Endemol USA- produced skein that has be-come a summer staple for the net. Its perf is particularly important this year since the net is launching a new fall lineup marked by some particularly ambitious, younger-skewing skeins-- some of which will no doubt be hyped endlessly during "Brother's" run.

That appeal to youth is evident in the makeup of this year's cast. Half are under the age of 25, with one player below the age of 21. Four players hail from the Los Angeles area, and there are no less than three players who work at a restaurant or bar.

Hmmm...I like it when there's mancandy to drool over, but I'm kind of disappointed that BB is going the route of Real World, and casting people that could be models, instead of Average Joe kind of people. I guess it's to add to the soapy quality of it, since you don't see many Chicken George's on soap operas. And of course demographics.

I'm still so excited though. I think I'm most excited about the houseguest having to carry out the whims of the american public...that sounds really fun. The enemies theme is interesting...not sure how I feel about it, but we'll see. I hope it's not too close to the bullies theme that was originally rumored.

excellent point about the soapy quality... it's as if they all sat down and thought, "ok, how many showmances can we spawn in one season... lemme see those pics again!"
