BB has unknown relatives this year?

Last night, a commercial for BB said that two of the houseguests are related and have no idea. INTERESTING!

Now last year we all wondered how they got the "EX-ES" and found out it was from the detailed bio the contestants had to fill out. So, how do they explain this one? Say it is siblings that were seperated at birth. If they know nothing about each other, how did BB find the other one?

Sounds like a real attention getter, but I am one for Reality TV being for actual people who apply and try out for the show. When the producers start looking for people to put on the show, it is not "real" anymore.

I wonder what percentage of regular people that send in a video actually get on any reality show, and what percentage is of people that the producers "found".

Look at Alison and Donny on the Amazing Race. I bet a million bucks that because of the controversy Alison caused by "cheating" on Donny, and the public awareness of their struggling relationship, The Amazing Race people approached them.

SO how "real" is Reality Tv...LOL

Not only Allison and Donny, but read the AR bios. Several pageant winners. Luck...I don't think so. I think you are right. Hand picked actress want to be's is not reality tv but then again is it ever?
