Allison Grodner (Executive Producer) was interviewed
this morning on the John Jay & Rich Show and spilled a few
interesting tidbits. You can listen to the full interview here.
Here's a rundown of the more interesting stuff from the interview.
Allison Grodner says that there were alot of interesting people in the
house for media day who work in television, print, internet media, etc.
"Some fun people, really interesting." She says that the footage will
be released shortly. This means we should be seeing the new house soon.
- The entire cast has been chosen. "Everyone is in. We've got a cast, we've got the twist, the new house. It's exciting."
More on the twist: "I can tell you that this season is different. The
twist this season is unique, as always. It is incredibly relatable. I
think everyone will be able to identify with this twist. That is all I
can tell you. There's also something else happening on premiere night
that's unprecedented that will be alot of fun. You're going to hear
more and more about this as we approach the premiere date." Allison
says that she can't release any information about the twist until the
cast is in sequester, but as soon as they're under lock and key, all
the information will be revealed.
- More on the house: "The
house is gorgeous. It's a modern house this season, and we're going
green. Eco-friendly." (Eh... I'm not so sure about this, LoL)
Julie Chen will be hosting all season, despite her pregnancy. Allison
jokes that Chenbot's baby will be the surprise 14th houseguest.
(Interesting that she mentions 14 houseguests since we've been told
there will only be 12...)
