After season 16 of Big Brother last year, which featured plenty of household competitions, have-nots, and HouseGuests, fans are already looking ahead to this year’s challenges.
There’s a rumor circulating that, despite what host Julie Chen has said is highly unlikely, the next season will be of the Big Brother: All Stars variety. (The last time Big Brother went the All Stars route was Big Brother 7. So, basically, we’re due.)
Invariably, Big Brother: All Stars is something special for fans, who get to reconnect with their on-screen friends and foes, and learn how they have matured (or devolved).
In the previous edition of All Stars, three houseguests were chosen from each eligible year. If there’s a new All Stars cast this year, who is it likely to feature?
Obviously, fans would love to see the likes of Ian Terry (the season 14 champ) and the Reilly sisters (Rachel won in season 13 and her sister, Elissa Reilly Slater, was voted “America’s Favorite” in season 15). However, with seven seasons’ worth of contestants to choose from – and no guarantee that the producers’ picks will want to come back – no one has better than 50/50 odds.
Here’s a look at our odds on which prior HouseGuests could return if season 17 winds up being an all-star cast.
