It's fair to say there has been a mixed reaction to CBS' announcement that Big Brother 13 would feature the return of "dynamic duos" from the show's past. For every fan thrilled by the prospect of seeing their favorite players again, there is another who would rather not spend another summer with Jessie, aka "Mr. Pectacular," admiring himself in the mirror.
Big Brother Season 13 to feature past "dynamic duos;" 8 houseguests revealed
Here at TVGuide.com, we see validity in each argument, but one thing is key: We want to watch game-players, not self-obsessed famemongers whose sole purpose is to stir the pot — and boost ratings — until the house kicks them out.

Behold, the five teams we'd most enjoy watching again this summer...
Jedi wannabe Howie Gordon found out the hard way that on Big Brother 7: All-Stars, the power of evil can be strong, as his apprentice and this week's Head of Household, Chicken George, went over to the dark side and helped get him evicted. TVGuide.com spoke to Hurricane Howie — who is currently residing in the sequester house and isn't privy to any info about what he didn't see on the show, or what has happened since — about his latest Big Brother stay.

Today is the last day that fans can vote at CBS.com for their favorites. (The viewers' top six will be combined with the producers' favorite six, and the chosen dozen will enter the house on July 6.)

As a huge Star Wars fan and all-around goofball, Howie Gordon brought a lot of fun to the Big Brother house this summer, especially when he got to play with a pair of lightsabers. He may have won his fair share of duels, but the 34-year-old meteorology student made some bad forecasts when he tried to vote out James, a move that may have ultimately cost him the game.
