Rumor Update - The Mentor Twist #BB14

Earlier today I covered the hot rumors about BB14's potential Mentor Twist.  You can read about it here.

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.  If you enjoy the site, please buy your live feeds here by clicking through the SuperPass icon on the upper left side of the page.  You know you will get the dirt right here every summer!  ***

Another Day, Another Rumor - The Mentor Twist #BB14

As the BB14 season draws closer tantalizing information is disclosed....

This latest rumor is from a renowned source, who has a history of having accurate inside information about Survivor, so it's not hard to imagine that they would know a little about Big Brother, also a CBS show, of course.

The source has a protected Twitter account---I don't want to publish pictures of the Tweets in case it pisses someone off.  I don't want to be blocked, since more scoop is forthcoming.


Big Brother 14 will feature some sort of Mentor twist, where former Big Brother players will somehow interact with the house guests.  I don't know any details about this twist (for example, if they will live in the house, etc.), but the source disclosed one of the Mentors who has accepted the offer.

Who is it?

Mike Boogie Malin, from BB2 and winner of BB All Stars.

I protested when I heard this news.  I wasn't happy about it, for numerous reasons:

What about all of the Mike Boogie scandals?   Whenever we see Mike Boogie Malin in the news, it is usually for very negative reasons.  For example, when he assaulted a waitress in a Colorado sports bar,  had legal beef with the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, even the cockroach situation at Lemon Basket .

And let's not forget the "Uncle Jerry" accusations.  I don't know if this turned out to be true, and I don't know if this refers to the Penn State "Uncle Jerry", but I think this proves wrong the old saying that any publicity is good publicity. 

Plus the twist sounds lame.  But admittedly I know next-to-nothing about it.

But the source confirmed the rumor as true, even after I pointed out some of the information above.  So there you go.....

By the way, the picture above has a website listed at the bottom.  If you go to that website today (mikeboogiemalin.com), this is what you will see.

I would love it if someone could translate that for me.  Please, please, please.

So would Big Brother want to to drag themselves into the Mike Boogie Malin circus again this summer?

What is he worth to the show without Dr. Will?  What about the drug rumors?  What about how horribly he treated Erica Landin during the BB7 finale?  You know, when he told the audience that he used her up and basically hit it and quit it.  He didn't even hug or shake her hand when he won --he just got up and ran out of the house to collect his prize from Julie Chen.

So after totally trashing Mike Boogie, I will give some positive news via a recent article about how he and his partner Lonnie Moore have been so successful in the LA area.  To continue on a positive note, I won't mention how douchey Mike's partner Lonnie looks, or the legal problems he has had.  Sorry, I couldn't resist.  


From the same source....the name of another former Big Brother house guest who DECLINED the BB14 Mentor offer will be disclosed soon.  I'm guessing it's Dr. Will---why would they make an offer to Mike Boogie if they weren't making the same offer to Dr. Will?

(You all know that for BB7 All Stars Will refused to appear unless his buddy Mike Boogie was also cast, right?)

And the source says a new villain is coming who will make us forget all about the other reality TV villains.

We can only hope, right?

***Newsflash*** Evel Dick Quits Smoking

Evel Dick tweeted this last night.  Do the electronic cigarettes contain nicotine?  The only people I know who used them are Sal Governale from The Howard Stern Show and that crazy nutjob psychic lady from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

I have heard Evel Dick say that he wanted to quit smoking before he turned 50, so I'm guessing the birthday he had last week had something to do with this.

Good Luck Dick!  You can do it!

I look forward to Dick taking out all of his nicotine frustrations on Twitter...just in time for BB14.
