The 16 contestants eight men, eight women range in age from 21 to 55, but that's deceptive. The 55-year-old, a stay-at-home father, is 18 years older than any of the other contestants. Ten of the housemates are in the 20s; five are in their 30s.
And they're all pretty.
Yikes. Can you believe this show has been around for 17 years? Maybe it doesn't actually kill brain cells, but watching it sure isn't going to make you any smarter.
I am grateful for one thing. Once again, none of the contestants is from Utah … so I don't have to pay too much attention "Big Brother."
