Should ‘Big Brother 17’ be All-Stars? Casting debates and more

Big Brother -Even though tonight marks the finale for “Big Brother 16,” we also feel like it’s never too early to start looking towards the future, and wondering what could be next for the show and the people who are going to be on it.

So could next season be an All-Stars? In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Julie Chen seemed to be against it, largely because the show loses a little something when you don’t have these wide-eyed people in there for the first time. To an extent, we get where she is coming from, especially with the ratings rising the last two seasons without a returning player on there. If there wasn’t “Big Brother Canada,” we’d just say to do two seasons next year, and have one be All-Stars and the other with newbies. That’s not going to happen.

What we do know is that there will be casting news hopefully released soon about next season, and even if there is an All-Star season, we imagine producers will still look at people. They can always get someone on the record, and then use that in order to cast them on another season down the road. It has certainly happened before.

Another issue when it comes to All-Stars is that unless you get the right people, it’s not worth doing. To us, it feels like you need a crop that includes likable people, challenge beasts, and a few villains. There may not even be enough good players yet, especially women given how CBS has cast too many women based on swimsuits rather than gameplay. It’s the same with “Survivor.”

We’ll have to see happens next season, but for now, what do you want to see? Share below, and head over to the link here to get some more news related to the finale! You can also sign up to get some further TV updates via our CarterMatt Newsletter.
