CBS has ordered an extra season of Big
Brother to fill space left from the writer's strike – this time
with a big gay twist! The premise of Big Brother 9 remains,
houseguests compete to win a big cash prize while having their lives
broadcast 24/7. But 9 ads a dramatic twist: Unknown to the
contestants producers have paired the 16 contestants with a soul mate
which they will need to play the game with. Among the players we
find: Joshuah, 25, from Dallas, and Neil, 29, living in Los Angeles.
In KCAL, a Los Angeles CBS affiliate
station, video interviews both men admit to being rabid Big
Brother fans and gay. When asked what his character would be on
Big Brother 9 Neil answers, “the gay guy, of course.” In
his interview, Joshuah reveals he loves sports, the Dallas Cowboys,
and thinks being a soap actor would be “amazing”. He also admits
to liking guys.
