I thought the current group of Big Brother houseguests were "D" list celebrities? Before they were discovered? They are from Central Casting, aren't they?

It "appears" that they are trying to get celebrity guests who are higher than "mid-level" celebrities per this Hollywood Reporter interview with Grodner, Meehan and Chen:

Other celebrity variations of reality TV cast mid-level talent. Are you aiming higher than that?

Chen: We're being realistic. It's not going to be all Oscar winners. But maybe we'll have someone who won an Oscar decades ago. Whoever casts Dancing With the Stars does an amazing job. They don't always get all household names, but some people kind of reinvent themselves and suddenly I see that person all over the tabloids. Sometimes these types of shows, like in the U.K. [version], some of the washed-up names that went into it got a new lease on life. And the big names that went in, it was a little bit too up close and personal. Those people did themselves in with letting the public see who they really are.

Meehan: We're just starting discussions and we're looking for people who are going to be fun. Maybe there are some celebrity fans of the show that we'll mix in there. We're going to create a big list and go out and see who we can get.

Grodner: It will be an eclectic group with diverse personalities and we're looking forward to seeing who will be interested.


Read more here, including Julie Chen's wish-list of celebrities (which is pretty interesting LOL):

Well I guess were not going to see Meryl Streep or Leonardo Dicaprio on here.

I bet there will probably be a Brady Bunch cast member as well as Lisa Welchel from Facts Of Life, throw in some Housewives stars, a Baldwin Brother, Gary Busey, and Snookie.

Celebrity Big Brother UK usually has a variety of Z listers. This past season was 2 pop singers, a psychic, a few tv actors, a few reality star actors (both from US and UK), a youtuber and a business man.


The celebrity big brother show is quite different from the version the US shows. The houseguests nominate people for eviction, but the voting public decides who goes. There is alcohol in the celebrity big brother house and a some tasks and competitions.

I will be very curious to see if the US celebrity version is like the UK version.
