Voting Open for Big Brother 7

The Big Brother 7: All-Stars top 20 has been officially revealed. In this list of 20 we have some old favorites and a few we forgot that we loved to hate. Nothing about this list is a surprise since CBS leaked the list weeks ago when the voting website and had the content up for a few hours. Whoops... Anyway, now is time to vote for who you want to be in the BB7 house. The three guys and three girls who get the most votes will automatically get into the house and the producers will round out the group of 12 who will make up this season of Big Brother. Vote by midnight eastern time on Wednesday, June 28th at There is no limit to how many times you can vote. Get to voting make sure your favorites get in the house!

Below are the 20 potential contestants for Big Brother 7: All-Stars, broken down per season. As you can see there is quite a favoritism to seasons 2,5,6. Personally, I would like to see some people from the earlier seasons get voted in and I think all of the previous winners should not get another chance because they will be targeted early anyway. Since all the reality stars for the most part hang out in LA and have cliques, you can bet that there is already alliances and strategies in place before any of them set foot in the house. This is shaping up to be quite an interesting summer!

Heroes Pilot Review: Part 2

Continuing on my previous post about the Heroes two hour pilot:

Harrison (left) and Peter are at the police station to bail out their mother, Alice. When the pair gets to the station they find out that their mother is not being charged for shoplifting. Harrison is very upset that his mother could do something to ruin him image so close to the election. Peter is upset too but he is more worried about how his mother is feeling. Once Harrison leaves to go do some damage control, Alice admits that she stole some socks because it was exciting to her. Peter tells her he understands.

Niki talks to someone named Texas Tina who appears to be her friend. It seems that Niki and Micah are staying with Tina for a little while at least. Niki admits that she borrowed the $25,000 for Micah's private school tuition from a loan shark and that she has had a gambling problem in the past. The loan was due two weeks ago and Niki has not paid it back. Niki also tells Tina that she feels like someone is following her but its not the loan sharks this time.

Peter and Alice are out of the police station now and are talking. Alice is concerned that Peter is not making a good enough living. Peter also defends Harrison and says that he has a connection with him. There is talk about some sort of accident that Harrison was involved in that Peter just knew was happening. Alice says that she is not holding her breath any longer for something special to happen to Peter. Suddenly Peter begins to fly above the city and flies toward the solar eclipse.

Now we are above a bunch of corporate workers in Japan and we see that Hiro stands out from all the others. Hiro is looking up at the sky toward the solar eclipse. Then we see Issac laying on the ground suffering when the light from outside goes black.

At Sing Sing prison D.J. (right) is on the phone talking to someone who seems to be his son. D.L. tells the person at the other end of the phone to take responsibility and to "her" that he promises somehow get out of there. D.L. returns to his cell and a guard asks a fellow inmate named Zeke to watch the wandering prisoner. Zeke and D.L. have a conversation about religion and then as D.L. watches Zeke pray he looks at Zeke's copy of The Koran.

Its night as Hiro and Ando talk about Hiro's time stopping ability. Ando still does not believe that Hiro's discovery has any sort of meaning while Hiro professes that it does. Hiro is doing a good job of convincing Ando that he has special powers but Ando doesn't know what good it will do Hiro, its not like he is going to make any money off of it. Ando challenges Hiro to teleport himself to the womens bathroom at least. Hiro begins consentrating.

Stella (left) arrives at Issac's loft and finds all the lights out. Stella calls to Issac but he does not respond, then she finally finds Issac handcuffed to the radiator in serious addiction withdrawl. Stella wants to take Isaac ot the hospital but he refuses and won't tell her where the handcuff key is. Stella gets a out a toolbox and uses every tool she can find to get Issac away from the radiator but is unsucessful. Isaac just wants Stella to leave her alone and tells her that he never loved her and is just using her. Stella is upset about what Isaac said and decided to respect his wishes and leaves. Isaac is not happy about what he just said but then notices that Stella left the saw close to him.

A man named Inspector Berlini is at a monastery with a picture of Father Sylar. Berlini is speaking to someone about what to do about victims' families.

Peter (right) is in a taxi cab, still in the middle of the solar eclipse. The camera reveals that the taxi cab driver is none other than Suresh. They talk about the eclipse and then Peter feels some sort of bond with Surseh and begins to open up. Peter asks Suresh if he thinks there are special people in the world who are meant to do something more. At first Suresh plays it off but then he explains his theory about an instant type of evolution. Peter feels that what this man is saying is exactly the way he has been feeling. But then the phone rings and its Stella, she needs him. Peter asks to get out of the cab right away.

Claire is at home and she is talking to her mom while doing the dishes. Claire's class ring falls off her hand and subconsiously she puts her hand into the garbage disposal while it is running. Clarie's hand becomes a bloody mangled mess as she pulls it out of the sink. Claire notices her hand and tries to hide it behind her back as her mother keeps talking but the blood keeps dripping on the floor. Out of the blue, Claire then tells her mother that its time she found out who her real mom and dad are. By this time Claire's hand is completely healed.

Peter talks to Stella about the novel he has been wanting to write for several years. Peter also confesses to Stella that he is in love with her and that he is ready to be who he is supposed to be. Stella does not have a response for Peter but tells him she needs help right away.

At the Sing Sing Prison it is night and Zeke is woken by D.L. who is just standing at the bars of his cell staring. Zeke wonders if D.L. is ok but decides to go back to sleep rather than wait and find out.

Niki barges in to Tina's house and announces that she has to leave town right away but Tina reveals that she doesn not know what happened to Micah (left). Tina explains that he was gone when she returned home and was missing several hundered dollars out of her purse but thought he had returned home to Niki. This news crushes Niki.

Claire comes up on a train accident and all the train cars are on fire. The police are talking to a fireman who says that there is one person left in train car nine, a top secret government person who was not on the list of passengers. Suddenly Claire comes out of the flaming train carrying a man in military uniform. All the police and medical personnel attend to the man and forget about Claire for a moment. The episode ends as Claire walks away from the scene as the unidentified good samaritan.

Heroes Pilot Review: Part 1

Continuing on with my review of the fall pilots I'm looking forward to, here is my review of Heroes which will air at 9pm eastern on NBC Mondays. The pilot episode will be two hours long so this review will be broken into two parts.

Suresh (left) is a professor in India who gets alerted in one of his classes by a man named Nirad. Suresh dismisses class and knows immediately what it is about. Nirad informs Suresh that his father, a New York City taxicab driver, has been murdered. Surseh is upset but not entirely surprised. Then Suresh and Nirad go to his father's apartment and talk about how Suresh had been receiving letters from his father about someone following him and trying to take his research documents. Suresh says that his father had been following a crazy theory and found Sylar, a "Patient Zero". Nirad tries to convince Suresh that his father was crazy, Suresh isn't so sure. They see a map with various markings all over the world and old newspaper articles strewn about. Nirad wonders what would be so important for his father to die for and vows to find this man named Sylar. Nirad tried to talk Suresh out of this decision, he does not want Suresh to give his life away like his father did. Suresh looks at an old photo of him and his father and knows what he has to do.

Peter is at the bedside of an old man named Charles who is very ill. It is Peter's job to tend to Charles. Peter reads Charles the daily stock prices and Charles give him a hard time but it turns out they have a good relationship and they are just teasing each other. Peter reveals to Charles that he can fly and Charles does not believe him. Just as Peter walks to the window to show Charles his skill, Charles' daughter Stella comes in the room. Peter and Stella have a conversation about Charles who is unconscious. Apparently Peter had been having a dream when he was talking to Charles. Then Peter flirts with Stella and asks her out. Stella declines because she is dating someone.

Niki (right) is a single mother of a 10 year old boy named Micah. She tells him to get ready for school and Micah is excited for the solar eclipse that is set to happen that day. There is a knock at the door and Niki tells Micah to get to the rear of the home. Outside there are two guys wearing leather, not good.

D.L. is a prisoner at the Sing sing prison. A prison guard finds him sleeping on the floor out of his cell in the boiler room. The guard is very upset that D.L. is not where he is supposed to be and orders D.L. to tell him how he got there. D.L. can't answer because he really has not clue how he got there. D.L. is taken to the Warden's office for a little chat.

Peter is visiting his brother Harrison at his campaign headquarters. Harrison is running for public office and is a very uptight man. Peter is trying to describe to Harrison about the dreams he has been having, these dreams about flying. Harrison does not have time for this and tells Peter to go see a doctor for his problems. Just then Harrison gets a phone call about their mother who has been arrested for shoplifting.

Isaac is a drug addict and a painter. Isaac is really disturbed by the fact that he has been painting the future on his canvas. Stella finds Isaac in a frenzy trying to paint a picture of an eclipse. Stella wants him to put the paintings in a show or something. Isaac says that he can only paint when he is high but can't remember doing so. Isaac explains to her that he painted the outcome of a horse race weeks before it took place. Isaac also painted a picture of Stella as she looks today. Stella is trying to convince Isaac to get help for his addiction but he won't listen.

Hiro (left) is a Japanese corporate cubicle worker. Hiro has been staring at a clock for quite sometime when he finally gets the second hand to stops moving and goes back one second. Hiro is triumphant in accomplishing this task and runs down to another cubicle where his friend Ando sits. Hiro tries to explain to Ando what just happened with the clock. Ando is not too impressed with Hiro's story and thinks that Hiro has lost his mind. Hiro tries to explain that he was the one who caused the train to arrive 14 seconds late earlier that day. Suddenly Hiro's boss breaks up the storytelling time, back to work.

Niki is called to the Principal's office at Micah's school. Principal Kearns explains that Micah's test scores came back too low and that he is not upholding the standards of the private school. Niki gets very upset and demands her tuition back. The Principal agrees to refund the unused portion of the tuition but not the $25,000 entrance fee that Niki made to get Micah into the school. As Niki storms out of the room and grabs Micah, she notices something weird about her reflection. Niki sees her reflection move out of the mirror and then smashes the mirror on her way out of the door.

Claire (right) is a Texas high school cheerleader and sits next to another teen named Zach. Zach has been video taping Claire doing all sorts of stunts to hurt herself but nothing is happening as her skin keeps healing right in front of their eyes. Zach is impressed with all the stunts and is glad to be a part of the experiment. Zach is also glad that Claire is talking to her since Zach is a bit of an outsider and Claire is popular. Claire is upset by her special gift because she thinks all the people in school will think she is weird. They notice that on Claire's last stunt she broke her leg very badly and the bone is sticking out of her skin. Claire pops her bone back into place and then takes the video tape from Zach. Claire walks off with only a slight limp.

That is all for part 1, part 2 is posted above this one.

Amazing Race 10 Sightings

The Amazing Race is currently filming its 10th edition to air in the fall. There are some small bit of information that have leaked due to some sightings. Once I find out more of the route spoilers after filming has completed, I'll make a new more detailed post. In the meantime here is what is known so far:

The race began filming on May 27th in Seattle. There were signtings at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport that day. Speculation is that the race then stopped in Beijing and Mongolia before heading to New Zealand and then Singapore. There also has been another sighting in the Kuwait airport around June 8th. There were also 7 same model type SUVs spotted in the airport parking lot, speculation is that this would be somewhere around the 5th episode if the teams begin with their usual 11 teams. The race lead the teams to the Kuwait Towers. This race will go around the world in the opposite direction, heading west from the United States.
