With ‘Big Brother’ heading into it’s 18th season, Jeff Schroeder sat down to interview the cast — and to reveal quite a bit about the 12 new houseguests.
Season 18 of Big Brother will include all these contestants — plus a few more that are still unannounced — living in a house together for a whopping 99 days. Luckily, thanks to CBS All Access, alum Jeff Schroeder got a little taste of each of their personalities, including Cody‘s bro and Vanessa‘s sis. So here’s some takeaways.
Paulie Calafiore, 27, not to be confused with Paul, is Cody’s brother — and no, he didn’t plan on hiding it from anyone. He actually has “Calafiore Brothers” tattooed on his ribs. Yes, really. He also strongly believes that while he does plan to take some of Cody’s strategies, he knows people can reinvent themselves… like Tom Brady.
Tiffany Rousso, 32, is Vanessa’s sister, and basically her brunette twin. She also sounds and acts exactly like her. It’s insane. her plan is to be a little less emotional than Vanessa was, and thinks she can hide who her sister is, which will never fly, at least to the BB crazed fans… which is probably most of the cast.
Paul Abrahamian, 23, is the bearded hipster of the group, and he can totally pull it off. He also would never shave his beard which makes me really hope there’s a challenge where he has to shave it.
Victor Arroyo, 25 is super confident which will most likely come back and bite him in the ripped butt (yes, he’s a fitness guru). I have a feeling he may have a tough time with relationships in the house, since this was part of his bio: “I’m always looking for the next girl to talk to and I’m never satisfied with what I have; I’m always wanting more.” I mean.
Corey Brooks, 25, is very good looking… but that may be all. He kind of reminds me of Clay but more dull, and I say that will all the love in the world. I don’t have much more to say, but maybe he’ll land himself a showmance?
Bronte D’Acquisto, 26, may literally be a cartoon, if you just listen to her insanely high pitched voice. She’s a mathematician which is insane, since she can’t do any equations in her head. This was my favorite quote from her bio: “I also run, look at adoptable dogs, stretch, and walk to the mall to purchase more hair accessories.”
Bridgette Dunning, 24, is one that I really like. Off that bat, I got a nice-girl vibe, since she giggles non-stop in between sentences. She said she has a dark side but I’m not sure if that’s even true. Either way, she will most likely be a floater.
Zakiyah Everette, 24, really really really want s showmance. I’m not sure why, but she thinks it’s a good idea and she’s “ready for him.” Hmm, maybe she’ll end up with Corey?
Jozea Flores, 25, is basically obsessed with Frankie Grande and kind of looks and sounds like him, too. He’s majorly confident and while the girls will most likely love him, he may be an easy target.
Glenn Garcia, 50, is the Trump supporter and according to his Twitter, is pretty proud of that. He’s also from the Bronx and while he used to be a detective, he’s now a dog groomer. He is a father, too!
Michelle Meyer, 23, looks like a brunette Nicole which I actually love, and snorts when she laughs which is actually adorable. She also is a huge superfan of the show and a nutritionist who actually likes calling out the calories people are eating to them. So she’ll be making friends left and right.
Natalie Negrotti, 26, has high hopes for an all girl alliance, and she named glitter as one of her favorite colors.She has a huge list of favorite activities on her CBS profile page, and three are “shopping,” online shopping,” and “bargain shopping.” Also, she’s”single as a Pringle.” Maybe this is Corey’s match?
Big Brother premieres on June 22 at 8PM ET on CBS.
