Annie from Tampa, FL frolics in a park and hints that her bisexuality will be an advantage. A ranch hand (at least that's what we see him doing) named Lane from Decatur, Texas, says he's used to getting his hands dirty. Probably not as literally as he will be in the Big Brother house, though, unless he works at a ranch that generates massive amounts of honey, oatmeal, and other forms of slime. Then there's Enzo, a New Jersey meathead who tells us his strategy: "None a your friggin' business." I'm charmed already.
Brendon from Riverside California is a swim coach who says he's used to high school drama. That's actually a good point. Kristen is a poor man's Christina Applegate from Philadelphia, who seems to be something of a party girl. Ragan is from West Hollywood, California, and although he claims to have a Ph.D. in communications studies, he seems to insist on dressing like a gas station attendant in 1956. Looks like he's ready to step into the role of the evil gay, though.
Montage of the houseguests packing, edited for maximum implied tension that may or may not play out when everyone actually gets into the house, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it. In fact, I'm done. Although I wonder how the taxpayers of Texarkana feel about watching Kathy drive off to the Big Brother house in her police car.
Julie's back to ask us if we've guessed the saboteur yet. Uh, Alison Grodner? But before we can spend much time thinking about it, she calls the houseguests out to the yard to all meet each other for the first time, although they're not allowed to talk to each other yet. The first four in the house will be Britney, Ragan, Brendon, and Rachel. In they go, the girls squeeing while the guys hurry to claim bedrooms.
Lane, Annie, Enzo, Kathy, and Andrew are the next group to enter, and rush to claim beds. Annie, who already told us she's bisexual, admits that she's got a little crush on Britney. "I want to put her in my pocket and save her for later." Or accidentally run her through the laundry. Either way.
Finally, Monet, Hayden, Kristen, and Matt get to go inside. A bed shortage is quickly apparent, but nobody freaks out over it. As for the décor, the only thing that jumps out at me is that the old swimming pool decorated room appears to be gone. The acoustics in there probably gave the sound guys fits anyway.
