Rachel Reilly and Elissa Slater
She walked away from Big Brother 15 with a $25,000 prize as "America's Favorite." Now Elissa Slater is heading to her favorite soap. The Concord, N.C., nutritionist and yoga instructor — and sister of Big Brother 13 champ Rachel Reilly — will join CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful Oct. 24-25 for the reality TV invasion that will also include Reilly and other Big Brother alumni, including Brendon Villegas, Jeff Schroeder and Howard Overby, plus Malcolm Freberg from Survivor. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the beautiful and bubbly Slater about her dip in the suds and found her to be — no surprise — totally beside herself!
It's summertime and the living is easy...except on the hit game show Big Brother where lying and backstabbing are the order of the day and revenge is a dish best served cold — with a heaping side of slop! The 15th installment of the popular CBS franchise, hosted by Julie Chen, will return Wednesday (8/7c) with two new twists that are sure to stun the contestants and trigger seismic shifts in the game. Instead of two houseguests being nominated for eviction each week, the players will now nominate three. Plus, BB viewers will play a key role in the outcome of the game when they get to vote each week for the contestant they feel is playing the best game — the Big Brother MVP — and the winner will be given a special secret power.
TV Guide Magazine sat for a chat with the sequestered houseguests to get their juiciest deets just before they met each other and entered the game. Who plans to lie about her perfectly legal but highly unpopular occupation? Who is most likely to send the CBS censors into cardiac arrest? And who is related to a highly polarizing BB contestant from the past? Expect the unexpected!
