‘Big Brother 14’: Daniele Donato, Rachel Reilly to host web shows

If you are a subscriber to the “Big Brother” live feeds during the season, then as you probably know already there are a number of benefits that come with it. One of them is the opportunity to watch a few select web series exclusive to the Real SuperPass subscribers that feature past contestants chatting it up about some events related to the show. This year, we’re thrilled to report that one of them just so happens to feature someone who we boldly consider to be a reality TV legend.

Yes … we’re talking about Daniele Donato! Dani is going to be hosting the new edition of “Rumor Control” with Rachel Reilly at two confirmed times this season — Monday, July 2 and Tuesday, July 10 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time (3:00 p.m. Pacific). Rachel and Janelle Pierzina will also be hosting one at July 6 at the same time.

(Spoiler alert!)

We want to point something out here with these shows in relation to a new rumor going around that Rachel and Janelle are going to be in-house “mentors” this season who stay as long as the contestants they are helping out do — the dates don’t match up. Unless there is a time change as to when they enter the house this year, some of these dates (at least the latter one for sure with Dani and Rachel) would be after the cast enters the house. The fact that these three ladies are doing this show would make us stunned if any of them are on the season — with the only exception being if Julie Chen decides to introduce them into the house on the July 12 premiere rather than the move-in date. But even if this happens, what’s the point of mentors if they are not there from the beginning for the contestants?

On a different note, there is another “Big Brother” SuperPass show coming out online this year in “Rants & Roars” featuring Matt Hoffman and Adam Poch, and it will air Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m. Eastern beginning on July 17. If rumor-lovers are looking for evidence that Rachel and Janelle could be on this season, they are probably going to use this new show minus either of them as evidence. (On a different note, what’s the over-under on “Beverly Hills, 90210” references on this show?)

If you want to pay for the live feeds, you can head on over to this link — and if you don’t, we have you covered anyway. We’ll be providing updates and spoilers from the feeds all season to go along with episode reviews and analysis.  For one example, check out our latest preview piece about what we don’t want to see go down this season.
