From the same source, I have some updated information about this twist:
The format of the Mentor Twist will be similar to The Voice.
I am interpreting that to mean that there will be 4 coaches (i.e. "4 new twists"?) and I guess each will have teams of house guests they will mentor.
But will they have spinning chairs? Will they pick their own teams based on some sort of pre-season screening data, or a schoolyard pick that is broadcast on the first episode?
I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it sounds lame. But on the other, we won't have only Mike Boogie to deal with. Depending on who the other three mentors are, this could be fun.
Let's see...they could go with previous winners, which would make sense (Dan Gheesling, Evel Dick, etc). Or they could pick Big Brother scholars who the fans would like to see (Evel Dick, Britney Haynes, James Rhine, Danielle Reyes).
I would list Janelle, but I can't see her leaving her baby to appear on the show again. I'm sure production would love to pit Dick and Danielle Donato against each other again, but I don't think either one of them would go for that. (Would they?) And if Jeff Schroeder is cast again, how can the network justify that?
Although, pitting Dani and Jeff against each other as Mentors might make sense. I can talk myself into believing almost anything at this point.
**** Note that within the next week, the Big Brother 14 action is going to ramp up significantly. The gag order about Media Day will expire on Monday, July 2nd, and it is my understanding that the SuperPass show Rumor Control with Dani Donato and Rachel Reilly will have it's first episode that day. If you want to buy or try the live feeds this year, you will want to take action before July 12th in order to get the 25% discount. You can still buy the live feeds after that, but it will cost a smidge more.
