Our early picks for Big Brother frontrunners
An affable 22-year-old who peddles shoes in Chicago.
As one of six houseguests forced to live with their enemies (this season’s big twist), he immediately garnered our sympathy when housemate/ex-lover Joe announced that Dustin gave him the clap.
Anyone who can’t defend himself in the face of Joe’s STD accusations might be too weak to stick around for long.
A 27-year-old class clown who works as a talent-agency assistant in New York.
Clearly this season’s sharpest contestant, Eric was selected by the BB producers to be ”America’s Player” — meaning he can secretly earn a quick buck by doing what the viewers tell him.
If he lets his secret status slip, Eric could face a swift eviction when it’s discovered he’s cashing in early.
Stats A cunning and conservative 37-year-old working mom from McKenzie Bridge, Ore.
Named the first Head of Household, BB’s oldest woman is both friendly and shrewd.
Her homophobic comments in the diary room could turn off Dustin fans. And she may second-guess her decision to play, since she has a husband and three kids back at home.
An emotionally fragile 20-year-old waif who waits tables in Huntington Beach, Calif.
She scored pity points when it was revealed that her dad, Dick — a tattooed tool whom she hadn’t spoken to in two years — was moving into the house.
If blood really is thicker than water, she could end up teaming with Pop, and we all know how the house abhors alliances.
