I wasn't sure whether (or where) to post this, but I spotted it at TVCH and decided to bring it here. Feel free to move it, if you'd like. If this article is right, they've started picking new houseguests.

Paper Trails
'BIG BROTHER' Invites First Arkansan
December 12, 2007

ARKANSAS -- Word is Tony Westbrook of Benton will be among the housemates of the next season of CBS's reality show, Big Brother.

The new season - the show's first winter one - is to begin Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Westbrook will be one of 14 people who move into the house (on a Hollywood film stage) and attempt to avoid eviction for the next 80 days.

The goal? To make it to the final two, where the winner receives $500,000 and the runner up lands $50,000.

Back home in Arkansas, Westbrook, who is 33 and a Harmony Grove high school graduate (class of '92) works as a paraprofessional at Birchtree Community assisted-living facility.

Wow! That sounds like a great leak. I wonder how many other "leaks" will surface?

Thanks for bringing it over.

That's interesting ... sounds like a "real" person rather than a Hollywood wanna-be.

Are we going to have a male Amy Crews? Wasn't she from Arkansas....
Benton Ark. is the home the late Sam Walton, founder of Walmart Stores.
That Sam was one intelligent and ambitious man..Although it has nothing to do with BB, his Bio is a good read...

Probably not. Benton is where he is from... Bentonville is the Walmart headquarters. Two different towns.

In 1950 though, he purchased a store in Bentonville, Arkansas, which ended up being called Walton's 5 & 10

And I knew that.......We've been there and I knew Walmart's H/Q was Bentonville...
Just when you think Nancy is not watching this board...there she is with the true facts. Laughing Laughing
You posters that may think Nancy doesn't know what is going on with this board...well you've got another think coming.
Shoot!!!! we can't get away with anything. Very Happy
BTW Arkansas is really a very pretty State..Like all States it has its grubby parts, but all in all its pretty...the northern part especially..Eureka Springs Ark is one of the most interesting little vacation resort towns there is...

Sydney, for BB8, that started on July 5th, we had already posted here the list of HGs on June 28th. That was 1 week before the show started. There had been some speculation before then, but folks didn't have things at all right.

It came from the local newspaper. That is why I assume it may be a "leak". It may or may not be accurate. Once CBS hears he has told someone, they could not use him if they saw fit. Or it is possible CBS is trying to "leak" the information themselves for more publicity. It will be all up for speculation.

Thanks again JW. That is what I was thinking if CBS did not want this info out there so soon, then they may not use him. I guess time will tell Very Happy

Wanna spend some time with James Rhine, Kail Harbick, and others? Well, then, here ya go . . .

Big Brother 9
Kicks off with a
Premiere Party
February 12, 2008

The list of past Big Brother alumni attending this very special event is long and reported to be growing on a daily basis. At this time the confirmed are, James Rhine, Kail Harbick, Jen Johnson, Nick from BB8, Howie Gordon, Kaysar Ridha, Rachel Plencner, and JenniferVasquez.

You will want to pay special attention to this event because I believe it to be the first event of this kind ever planned, organized and put on by a past Big Brother house guest. Usually these events are planned by Big Brother or one of the supporting Big Brother web sites. With James and Kail doing being the hosts, this event will probably rise above anything we have seen in the past. It is going to be a good one!

There will be a meet and greet from 1 pm to 4 PM on Tuesday, February 12 followed by a dinner with the Big Brother Celebrities. After dinner everyone will gather to watch the premiere of Big Brother 9 and at the conclusion of the show there will be a cocktail party.

For further information about this event being held in beautiful Rainbow, Oregon call The Holiday Farm at 541-822-3725
