Are you saying Omarosa is nice?

No. I'm saying that I wouldn't be surprised if they plotted out a storyline that kept them fighting but they are secretly aligned.

I agree, & I wish they, (production) would stop interfering.

They are reality tv pros.
Julie Chen said that they went into sequester before the cast was announced, so they don't know who else is going to be on the show. They originally had five men and five women but changed it to 11 when Omarosa agreed to be on the show.

I'm not signing up for CBS All-access again to watch the live cams. Last season was the first one I watched and saw the live feeds a lot. Gives a completely different version of some events that happen in the house but I wouldn't want to watch other people 'live' again. For one thing it was gross, some of the things people did were enough to turn my stomach. Plus, I felt like a voyeur, even though I was watching to see when contestants were going to get wise and plot against Paul, watching people put on make up, get food out of the pantry, etc. was kind of weird.

As for this season, I haven't read yet but its obviously going to be shorter than the typical three months, since they only have 11 contestants. And I agree that the celebrities are not going to attract many viewers. Omarosa, never understood the appeal for having her on the Apprentice more than once, now she'll be on BB? Ugh. I don't even know many of them, probably because I don't keep up with pop culture.

Metta World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, was an NBA player known for starting fights on the court, etc., and off the court in the case of the Malice at the Palace (in Detroit) when he and other players from his team went into the stands to fight fans after one threw a drink at him. He was at the very least borderline psychotic it seemed at the time. The slightest thing could set him off. He is a coach now so hopefully he'll be a little more subdued.

I'll probably watch the first episode to see how much of a train wreck it looks to be, and to see the ones I don't know like Ariadna Gutierrez, Brandi Glanville, Chuck Liddell, and I've heard of Shannon Elizabeth but not sure I've seen her in anything (think she's an actress anyway).
