CBS Big Brother 11, Reportedly Doing A Media Day on June 19

According to a radio show that tvgrapevine.com found and put up on their site, there is going to be what is called a CBS "Big Brother"

media day on June 19,2009. It's an event put together by the producers of the show to do a test run of the "Big Brother" house.

Now, this radio host said that his sister runs the whole thing and she told him that the "Big Brother" media day is going to consist of a

couple of celebrities which includes,and I quote : himself, Perez Hilton,somebody from "Extra",and Access Hollywood.

They are supposed to live in the house for like 15 hours,and it's supposed to be a condensed version of the whole game. He read off what is supposed to happen when they arrive on the CBS lot for "Big Brother" media day.

He said when they arrive there, they will be locked in for 15 hours, with no contact to the outside world. And that they will be doing all

the challenges that the Big Brother game has. You die hard "Big Brother " fans should all know what they are. They're going to be checking for camera angles,sound,staging,etc. And they'll be using the chosen celebrities to do so. He said CBS will shoot a highlight reel of it. And every celeb contestant who participates will get to take home a copy of it.

He also said they're going to eat slop, have an eviction ceremony, a mini wrap party,etc. All of this would happen in just 15 hours ! I

repeat they're going to run a whole Big Brother season in 15 hours for this Media Day. They'll be voting people off, doing head of

household,everything. That's insane ! Apparently this Media Day took place last year and there were some brutal fights that took place. They also said this 15 hour test drive is more fun than the actual show because heck, it's just 15 hours,and not the full 90 day grind that the regular contestants will have to endure.

'Big Brother' Media Day Today

A test run of how the 11th season of the CBS reality show Big Brother is set to be launched today, in an effort to attract attention and show off a condensed version of how Big Brother, in a nutshell, works.

The CBS Big Brother media day, put up by the show's producers, will reportedly include the likes of celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, in addition to someone from Extra and Access Hollywood. They will reportedly live in the house for 15 hours and throughout that amount of time will have to undergo nearly all the ceremonies and challenges that normal house guests endure, except obviously living in a house with total strangers for 90 days.

With no contact to the outside world, the media people will be doing what Big Brother orders them, while the producers check for camera angles, sound, staging, and the rest. CBS will also release a highlight reel of the whole experience, with each celebrity contestant getting a copy to take home.

".. They're going to eat slop, have an eviction ceremony, a mini wrap party, etc. All of this would happen in just 15 hours!" confirms a source as quoted by On the Fix. "They're going to run a whole Big Brother season in 15 hours for this Media Day. They'll be voting people off, doing head of household, everything."

Media day also took place last year and despite the limited time - 15 hours - "brutal fights" still erupted in true Big Brother fashion.

In other developments, the official Big Brother 11 website was recently launched, with the usual Interact, Photos, Recaps, and House Guests sections, plus the Fantasy section for the game that was created for this season.

Big Brother 11 will kick off July 9 on CBS.

'Big Brother' 11 House Rumored to Go Green?

While there's always a surprising twist every season Big Brother airs, this year it's a bit more expected than usual. According to the website Online Big Brother, the notorious house will be heading for a new direction. The eleventh installment of the hit show will reportedly go green.

Over the weekend, the media was allowed to visit the set of the CBS series and check out what a typical day was like in the house. Unfortunately for them (and for the fans), the Media Blackout is in effect until June 29. Even so, it's always fun to check out what rumors are plaguing Big Brother.

Though the environment-friendly theme of this season remains to be mere speculation, there's still some truth behind it. A recent interview with Big Brother's executive producer Allison Grodner revealed what to expect come July.

"The house is gorgeous. It's a modern house this season, and we're going green. Eco-friendly," she said on the John Jay & Rich Show. She's also confirmed that it's been finalized, along with the members of the cast.

There has also been a number of Big Brother 11 buzz released about the details of the house, and with Grodner's statement they seem highly believable. The site reported that going along with the theme is everything else.

It's been said that the pillows will be made of hemp, the kitchen area looks like a forest and the colorful walls will be fiber-optic textured. There will also be a huge tank filled with fish in one corner of the house and an eco-fountain in the backyard. There'll be motion-censored showers and sinks, but there won't be a washer for the clothes. Could it be that they're giving the houseguests recyclable fashion?

Despite all these tales, we'll only get to see what's really going on in the house when Big Brother airs its eleventh season on July 9, 8pm on CBS.

'Big Brother' 11 To Really Clique?

As usual, there are rumors creeping about the fortress that is CBS' Big Brother. After the story released by the media regarding the state of the eleventh season's house, a couple of other tales have surfaced. One mentions the day the houseguests will be introduced to their soon-to-be prison, and the other is about the supposed twist of the show. Read on below to find out what the upcoming installment of the hit reality series could bring.

According to an insider from RealityBBQ, the dates are getting closer than we all think. The series is set to premiere another season on July 9, but of course its contestants need to familiarize themselves with the place first.

The source, using the pseudonym "CornerOffice," has revealed that: "The House Guests enter the house on July 5th." It's not really much of a spoiler for Big Brother 11 though. A fan's interest would be even more piqued if every bit of information was about the identities of the house guests. Regarding that, there might be a clue in the second portion of the rumor.

CornerOffice went on to point out the possible twist that Big Brother 11 will be having. "As far as the twist, I'll ask you a question. What clique were you part of in High School?"

Very intriguing. There are already those expecting a Freaks and Geeks style to this season, but there was hardly a variety of cliques there. If the rumor is indeed true, it's likely that Big Brother 11 would be more similar to High School Musical or even Mean Girls.

Knowing that, could it be that the houseguests will be divided into groups? There's the possibility that challenges would revolve around that theme, too. This whole idea actually raises doubt regarding the rumor that Big Brother 11 would be going for a more environment-friendly direction. It was executive producer Allison Grodner who revealed that, and her word is far more reliable.

Then again, there's always the chance that they'd combine the jock-vs.-nerds twist with the house going green. Again, we can only wait. All these rumors will finally be put to rest when Big Brother 11 airs on July 9.

The video below from WeLoveBigBrother.com correspondent Katie Neal was taped soon after she left the Big Brother 11 house. It is a detailed description of the brand new Big Brother 11 house. For her reflection on her time in the house, continue to Big Brother 11 Media Day Part 2: The Competition.

Big Brother Media Day Part 1: The New BB11 House

WeLoveBigBrother.com's Katie Neal:

When I went into the Big Brother 11 house to represent WeLoveBigBrother.com, I was joined by eleven other journalists. They were Jen Johnson from MSN.com, Gunther from The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Rosanna Tavarez from the TV Guide Network, Reagan Alexander from People.com, Dennis Luciani from National Lampoon, Melissa from CBS2 LA, Stella from CBS.com, Carrie Moten from Johnjay and Rich, Ben from BSideBlog, Ann Murray from Fancast, and Jay Schwartz.

After going through security and arriving at Big Brother, all of the journalists were instructed to sit in a room together. We were not allowed to talk to each other at all during this waiting period.

We met with the executive producers and they led us to the stage where Julie hosts the show. We were instructed to stand on the stairs just like the houseguests do before they enter the house. The producers ran through a list of rules and things we weren't allowed to do in the house. Chewing gum and breaking house items were off limits! Allison Grodner told us that we would be able to choose a bed upon entering the Big Brother house. However, there weren't enough beds for all of us because one of the rooms was locked. Allison said that since we were there for 12 hours, we didn't all need a bed. She wouldn't tell us why the bedroom was locked other than it was involved in the twist.

Eventually, our names were drawn at random and we were allowed to enter the house four at a time. I was picked to enter the house with Gunther and two others.

When we first entered the house, I noticed that the one big wall on the side had been changed. It had tons of plants and all the walls had been changed to different colors of plywood. It looked really cool. The interior decorating looked really nice. When I turned to my left, I noticed the kitchen had an oriental theme with Buddha statues and Chinese heirlooms.

I remember there were plastic chopsticks and the plates were actually made out of bamboo. The plates were really thin and almost looked like paper plates. The cabinets were made out of bamboo as well. There were a lot of orange and red colors in the kitchen. It looked like the houseguests will have to grow their own spices because there were garlic and thyme plants in the kitchen. The oven, refrigerator, and all normal appliances were still present.

Before entering the house, Allison Grodner informed us that the house was going green. She told us that there were two compost machines in the house. One was in the backyard and we weren't allowed to use it. There was also a compost machine in the kitchen, but none of us ever really figured out how to use it. Also, the garbage cans in the kitchen had a side for paper and plastic and another side for glass.

Once we became acquainted with the kitchen, we ventured down the hall to the bathroom. It had an industrial look to it. The couch was still in the corner. The bathroom had its normal setup with no major changes, other than the walls looking industrial. As far as online rumors go, there were no urinals on the wall! The shower door was clear with a little portion of foggy glass so you can't see the midriff of anyone. There was a sliding shower curtain in the middle to split the shower in two. There was another online rumor that the sinks were had motion sensors. Jen actually thought this was the case and waved her hands under the sink, but no water came out. Then she figured out she had to turn on the handle!

The exercise / spa room has two bicycles that have light bulbs next to them. When you pedal each bike, the light bulbs light up. At one point, Gunther and Jay were riding the bikes to see who could get the brightest light bulb. We joked around that it would be funny if the houseguests had to continuously ride a bike to keep the lights on. Half of the gym has the tops of bottles on the walls in interesting designs. The other side of the room is decorated with giant bubble wrap. The green recycling symbol is painted on the walls.

On the other side of the house, there were two bedrooms that we were allowed in. The first was straight down the hall and had no doors to it. There were three really cool beds in there. That room was painted with reds and the headboards were really tall. Those beds looked really nice and comfortable. This first room didn't really have a theme to it.

But the other room had a swimming pool theme. The first third of the wall had wallpaper that looked like water. Above the wallpaper was a cement border that looked like the edge of a pool. The last two thirds of the wall were designed to look like the underside of a pool. So it felt like you were literally under water. There were safety ropes running along the ceiling to make it look life-like. The beds actually had giant floats on them so it looked like you were floating on water. Coming out of the wall was a slide that was complete with a ladder. There were extra sunglasses and floats around the bedroom to make it feel like you were actually at the pool.

The diary room looks similar to the way it looked during Big Brother 10. There wasn't a theme or anything to it. It is just a dark and dimly lit room with a comfortable couch to sit on.

The living room still had a similar setup with two couches that were a shade of purple. There were two green nominee chairs that faced the monitor where Julie Chen talks to the houseguests. The walls were different shades of plywood. I know "plywood" doesn't sound really nice, but it did look really cool.

One strange thing I noticed was that in the living room there was a random dish of keys. At first we thought maybe there was a twist and we had to use the keys to unlock a secret room. But we ended up just making up games of hiding and searching for the keys.

Back to the kitchen area, the spiral staircase is painted orange to match the kitchen theme. There are a lot of cool pictures upstairs. They were hung up high with lights shining behind them to light up the pictures. In the Head of Household balcony, there was a large comfortable couch that was sage-green. Oh, the chessboard it still there too. When we first walked in the Head of Household room, the one wall had glass over it and behind it there was an outdoors picture. So it almost looks like you're looking out a window. So that part of the room has a recreational or outdoors theme. There was actually a big, comfortable chair in the HOH room that swiveled around. Everyone took a turn spinning around in the fun, new chair. The spy screen in the HOH room looked the same. It had a looping Big Brother 11 screensaver on it.

The HOH bathroom had a big surfboard on the wall with a wetsuit attached to it.

The first time the door opened to go into the backyard, I right away noticed that there was still a pool table. There was new patio furniture. The hot tub, pool, and hammock have all returned this year. The mural on the back wall was of a windmill field and looked really cool.

Another online rumor is that the clothes washer has disappeared. However, there was definitely a washer there when I lived in the house.

The compost machine was set off in the corner and we were told not to use it. I'm not sure how it worked, but I saw it over in the corner.

This was a minor dream come true: I got to taste the Big Brother experience without committing to a summer of national exposure (most of which I'm sure would be extremely embarrassing for me). While in the house, we played a week's worth of the game -- from Head of Household to Veto to eviction. Yes, we did it all, and it was, in short, awesome.

Nevertheless, I've been under a media embargo for the past week and a half -- but as of 6 AM this morning, the blackout has been lifted! The house guests are safely sequestered, which means I can now share not only my experiences but also the neat video that CBS edited together of us in the house. It's all sorts of fun (although, curiously, the eviction ceremony was not included on our DVD). Either way, the videos are highly entertaining, and if they don't get you psyched for the season, I don't know what will.

Also, be sure to check out my very thorough account of Media Day. It's up over at TV Week (and while you're there, be sure to check out a nifty profile of my college classmate Mindy Kaling). For those who don't need to read every single detail of the experience, I'm planning to write an abridged report that I'll have up on this site at some point. Plus, if you have any questions about the house or the experience, feel free to ask them in the forums on a thread conveniently titled "Big Brother House Q & A."

After the jump, parts I, II and III of the Big Brother media day video as well as some screen shots to help give you a sense of the house...

Big Brother 11: The New House

Well, Big Brother 11 has finally arrived with its first reveal of the season. The house has taken a very creative turn this season. The first thing you notice is the front door. It is unusual in its composition with a white panel covering of what is supposed to look like plexiglass, but obviously isn't due to its apparent sagging material. The doorway is flanked by two mauve colored lighted panels. The mauve mixes well with lots of steel and shine. The living area is flanked by a large two sided sofa, where houseguests would be divided even when they sit down. There is lots of purple throughout, with orange trim and lime seating, both upholstered and plastic modular. The theme is completed with mood lighting that reflects off the shiny grey flooring.

One bedroom is very interesting with its pool theme. The room itself is designed as an swimming pool with depth markers, pool ladder and even a pool slide. The beds appear to be matresses covered with air mattresses in bright colors, and decorated with pool toys. Even the floor tile mimics the bottom of a pool with a bright blue and white checkerboard theme. Another room is devoted to exercise with mounted bicycles that actually generate electricity. The walls look like a terrarium layerd in a variety of stones and there is a seating area in the home gym, a new addition. Another room appears is decorated in purpe and red softened by greys. Seem are two twin beds and one sofa. That room may well be dubbed the "Trophy Room" due to the large number of trophies tht decorate the space.

The kitchen still sports the long bar counter, grey this season surrounded by red/orange bar stools that match the decor of the dining table. Greys and soft beige geometrics offset the bright colors. The refrigerator is a stainless steel side by side and the cabinetry is paneled in a light tan. Undercounter lighting highlights the appliances and splashes of bright orange. Heading up to the HOH room, the open loft is decorated in reds with a bright orange railing flanking the spiral staircase. That meets the loft railing which is an equally bright purple. The loft repeats the sea theme with paintings of sea shells in soft pastels.

The diary room has two toned blue walls created from horizontal panels. The background is softly lit which accents the deep maroon seating which appears cushiony and comfortable. The bathroom area has double sinks and Big Brother has returned to sunken sinks, and the half round cushioned settee has remained, although recovered in a dark blue. Rag rugs decorate the apricot flooring.

Outside, the pool remains along with the raised patio deck and hot tub. It appears that the houseguests will have an outdoor exercise bike, and the yard continues to have chaise lounges throughout. The walls are hues of blue with multi-color lower walls of apricot, lime green and beige. Lots of garden accents complete the theme.

The Big Brother house has taken color of conflict and melded them together to create a theme that both clashes and meshes reflecting life as we know it in the Big Brother house.
