By now it’s become a summertime ritual: The next installment of CBS’ ”Big Brother” has arrived. Even better, ”BB3,” debuting July 10, boasts the sexiest group of participants since the show’s 2000 debut, says one of its exec producers, Arnold Shapiro. ”I don’t want to insult last year’s [cast], but this group is gonna make bathing-suit time worth watching,” he says. ”And I must say, we have some hot single moms.” And who better to put out the flames than a real-life firefighter? Also in the mix: a comely Southern belle and a smooth-skinned gay man. ”He’s not hairy like Bunky,” says Shapiro, referring to last year’s furry-backed homosexual housemate Bunky Miller. Here’s EW’s exclusive first look at the entire ”BB3” cast:
CHIARA BERTI, 25, a single marketing rep from New York City
AMY CREWS, 23, a single real estate appraiser from Memphis
LISA DONAHUE, 26, a single bartender from Los Angeles
