BIG BROTHER Comes To The Bold and the Beautiful Just In Time For Halloween!

It’s going to be a household of Big Brother former winners and contestants and some that even  just wrapped season 16 of the highly successful CBS reality series franchise, when some very familiar faces descend on to the CBS soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful!

As previously announced, B&B had plans to feature Big Brother’s Donny Thompson in an upcoming episode! The fan favorite also took home the prize on last night’s season finale for the “America’s Vote” winner of their favorite contestant!

However, TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan filled soap fans in, that not only is Donny coming to the set of the daytime drama, but so too are: Big Brother 16 players Amber, Zach, Cody, Caleb, Nicole, Hayden and Devin, plus past Big Brother favorites Brendon, Rachel, Elissa, Jeff and Jordan.

It seems that all the reality series  stars will appear in an upcoming Halloween episode of The Bold and the Beautiful that will air on October 30th and 31st, and that their are special plans for Donny Thompson’s time in soapland!

Thompson told TVG about his upcoming soap experience: “Being on The Bold and the Beautiful will be lots of fun. They’ve got me wearing all sorts of outfits — surgeon, soldier, you name it. (Laughs) Wait till they see this back home! I’m going to be in scenes with Scott Clifton (Liam), who they tell me has three Emmys and that he loves Big Brother and is a big fan of mine. Huh? I’m just a little groundskeeper from nowhere and I have a fan who’s a big-deal actor in Hollywood? I’d be happy just to mow his grass.”

So what do you think of a Halloween episode filled with Big Brother contestants and winners on The Bold and the Beautiful?  Who are you most looking forward to seeing on the soap from the reality series?  Were you rooting for Donny in BB16?  Share your thoughts below!

Love Donny and Zach. Not sure why Devin was thrown in the mix though. I can’t wait to see this episode.

Thankfully Frankie will not be on. So tired of
CBS shoving him down our throats. He is such a
fame chaser. So is Caleb.

Vanessa…I agree. But I found Frankie to be WAY MORE ANNOYING than Caleb!!!!! To me, Frankie is ANNOYING PERIOD!!!!!

Looking forward to the episodes featuring the BB players! It would be great fun to have Donny playing a groundskeeper, speaking to one of the main characters as they walk into or out of Forrester Creations. Or they can take it entirely in the opposite direction, and have him play a professor or one of the other many professions the other houseguests thought he had.

Isn’t B&B supposed to be about fashion? How could they ignore the two biggest fashionistas in the BB house, Frankie and Victoria and take almost ever body else?

They’ve been doing it since the show was created, so I’m sure it wasn’t hard to exclude the obvious. I guess the show depicts its OWN reality (thus, we get “stars” from reality TV as well!) Might as well grit our teeth and bear it! The good ole days of soaps are long gone and NEVER EVER coming back!

Don’t know why we need them on B&B.

I didn’t think they really added anything and some of them (Donny) cannot act.

Meh! B&B disappoints with catering to these awful reality TV “stars” from equally awful reality TV series. I don’t watch reality shows, but B&B is using so many reality “stars” it’s blurring the lines. I may tune out for those days or at least FF through. If B&B keeps this up, I’ll tune out altogether. Not happy since I DO NOT watch B&B to see cast-offs from reality TV! For me, it’s another good reason to consider kicking the daytime soap habit!

CBS cross promotes all the time. They’re greedy, money hungry grubs!

Days is by far the BEST soap on daytime! It should have higher ratings. I wish they’d clean up the “messes” with their supercouples (past and present), so long-time fans that have left would have a reason to come back! Save John Black. Fix Jena nd Jack and have them running the Days news (she’s a journalist after all, not a PR person or whatever she does at the hospital!) Get Peter Reckell back or recast Bo — and have Bo and Hope be happy together and solve crimes/mysteries on Days (that would present limitless SLs and make a happy,… Read more »

It is all about cross promotion– CBS has Big Brother, with it’s large fan base, they try to lure some of those fans to watch B&B to see their Big Brother faves– some of those fans may have never watched B&B or a soap– but might start watching solely based on this peek of this show. It is not catering to reality stars– it is catering their bottom line–

Matthew Place

That’s fine, but many soap fans (loyal viewers of the show) don’t watch reality shows and are put off by this being shoved in our faces, cross promotion or not. What’s next? The hosts of The Talk acting as fashion consultants at a Forrester Creation fashion show?! Yuck! That will be when I tune out.

@Matthew Place— Actually on Y&R, Avery went on the Talk to promote her cooking show– mercifully we were spare actually having to see it, but they did promote the show on Y&R. But I agree with you, soap fans don’t really like when these “special” guests come onto a show– it adds nothing to the story and they are usually just awkward scenes– but as I said the networks don’t care about soap fans, only about business and in their minds this is good business.

I think this is a stupid move on the part of Brad Bell. He should be trying to save the genre, not do cross-promotion that could spell the end: If the ratings go WAY UP on Oct 30-31, maybe CBS will consider a daytime reality/docu-soap?! Yay! Go ahead, CBS. I won’t BE watching! 🙁 Cross-promoting with reality shows/stars is almost as absurd as ID counter programming against our remaining soaps by hiring beloved soap stars to host crime dramas and encouraging soap fans to tune in! ID has been calling these crime shows the daytime “stories”. Note to Brad Bell:… Read more »

oh geesh! IT was just for a Halloween party! What’s the big deal?! It’s not like they had a story line. Geesh! Get a life and just enjoy it.

There are other things going on that matter so much more, so I will accept this as the mild annoyance it is — and hope it never becomes anything more. That said, is one of the networks/soap producers working on a docu-soap? NBC? Brad Bell? I get a distinct feeling that something is in the works. I don’t know if I read it some place? Maybe other soap fans know of this? Not sure. Just a feeling maybe. If on eof the networks built a show (reality soap) around a popular current or former soap star, I have a feeling… Read more »

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
