Howard Overby won't be winning the grand prize on Wednesday's season finale of CBS's Big Brother (9:30/8:30c) because he was evicted from the game weeks ago. But the popular houseguest still has reason to smile. He's landed a guest spot on his mama's all-time favorite show, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful! TV Guide Magazine spoke with Overby — a youth counselor from Hattiesburg, Miss. — about his two-day suds gig, airing October 24-25.
Lawrence Saint-Victor, Jeff Schroeder, Karla Mosley
As one of the most popular players in Big Brother history, Jeff Schroeder has been exposed to a whole lot of lying, cheating and backstabbing — so he should fit right in at a daytime soap! TV Guide Magazine has learned that the reality-show fave and CBS.com host will be seen on The Bold and the Beautiful August 27 in sequences involving the production of Room 8, the show-within-a-show starring Maya (Karla Mosley) and Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor). Schroeder gave us the lowdown on his suds gig, the state of his romance with Big Brother 11 winner Jordan Lloyd and, of course, those scandals that have been rocking Big Brother 15!

12. If the Shoe Fits... Award: Lady Gaga may have wept for Marko's contemporary routine during her guest-judging stint on So You Think You Can Dance, but in the end, she only has eyes for Melanie, who she loudly proclaims as her favorite — oh, and at whom she tosses her monster-sized platform shoe because that's apparently what dancers do, or at least what Gaga does. "I would hire you tomorrow to dance on my tour all around the world," Gaga says. If she does, bring a helmet, Melanie.
11. Worst Omen:
Not even those sequestered in the Big Brother house are immune to Harry Potter fever, what with it being Harry Potter Week and all thanks to the Friday release of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. As seen on the show's live feed, veteran Jeff and newcomer Kalia recently got into it over J.K. Rowling's years-old revelation that Dumbledore was gay...
Jeff and Jordan, Big Brother
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. So, in order for us to fully invest in this season's twist, casting of the returning twosomes is key.
Behold, the five teams we'd most enjoy watching again this summer...
Get ready for a summer of "Double Trouble" when CBS' Big Brother returns July 7.
Season 13 of the summer reality show will feature eight new faces along with duos from past seasons. Together they'll live in a camera-rigged Venice Beach-inspired house and have their lives taped 24 hours a day as they compete for the $500,000 grand prize.
The Amazing Race
Jordan Lloyd won Big Brother 11, while Jeff Schroeder won fan favorite, but the couple didn't come close to winning The Amazing Race. After a bad cab ride left them in last place two weeks ago, the pair struggled to keep up before getting eliminated Sunday following yet another mistake-ridden leg. "We were trying to keep it positive, but this leg, if everything could've gone wrong, I think it did," Jeff, 31, tells TVGuide.com. "We started late and we tried our best. A lot of people made mistakes this leg, so if we had made the right decisions, we may have had a chance." See what else the two have to say about their last hurrah, what was wrong with their game plan, and if Jordan, 23, knows who Joan of Arc is now.
Big Brother 11 - Jordan Lloyd, Jeff Schroeder
While many Amazing Race contestants wait months — sometimes years — to get selected for the globe-trotting reality series, Big Brother sweethearts Jeff Schroeder, 31, and Jordan Lloyd, 23, only had to wait days. "Just a couple days after Big Brother ended, production came up to us and asked if we were interested in doing Amazing Race," Jordan, who won Big Brother 11 last summer (Jeff won fan favorite), told TVGuide.com. "We didn't hesitate. We were like, 'Yeah, we'll do it!' I don't really travel that much, and I know that I probably would never go to another country by myself, so I knew it would be something fun to do." See what else we can expect from the couple this season, and what it will take for them to do another show. The Amazing Race 16 premieres Sunday at 8/7c.
