Big Brother's Cassi Colvin Gets Sudsy on The Bold and the Beautiful

Big Brother 13 contestant Cassi Colvin — a real-life model and Olivia Wilde lookalike — makes her acting debut on The Bold and the Beautiful October 20 in a role that won't require heavy lifting. She plays a model, conveniently named Cassi, who's working with up-and-coming designer Hope Logan (Kim Matula) on the new "Hope for the Future" fashion line.

Big Brother Champ Rachel Reilly Returns to The Bold and the Beautiful

She's the half-million-dollar waitress! Big Brother 13 winner Rachel Reilly will appear on The Bold and the Beautiful' s Halloween episodes (October 28 and 31) in a role she's played eight times previously — a drink-server named Rachel at the show's tropical hangout Bikini Beach. Look for her in scenes with bad apple Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz).

'Big Brother Winner' Rachel, and the Zingbot, Stop by 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

Rachel Reilly won more competitions than any other contestant on this season of 'Big Brother' on her way to winning the entire competition. She made sure to remind the audience of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) of her stellar performance, and also brought the Zingbot along with her, much to the chagrin of Julie Chen . Now that Reilly has won a half a million dollars, her plans for her wedding to fellow contestant Brendon Villegas have changed a bit. "Oh my gosh, it's going to be the dream wedding," she said. "He actually had told me that week, he said, 'If you win the final HOH, then I will vote for you because you earned it,' and I did! I won more competitions than anyone this summer."

'Big Brother 13' winner Rachel: 'I was shocked by Adam's vote'

Rachel Reilly took home the "Big Brother 13" crown by a 4-3 vote. She tells Zap2it she was surprised by Adam's vote and she can't wait to start planning her dream wedding.What's it been like since you won?"Literally non-stop craziness all night long. It's a dream, everything is so surreal. I could never imagine this would happen. I feel like I'm just dreaming."Aside from winning, which is obviously awesome, was the experience everything you hoped it would be?"Oh my gosh, it was so crazy. This summer was such a roller coaster ride for me. I was nominated more than anyone, I was on the block five times, I won more competitions than anyone. I think I went into it thinking I'm going to be Rachel from Season 12, as far as being a competitor, but I'm going to work on my social game. I really wanted to show America I could play all aspects of...

5 Reasons Rachel Won 'Big Brother 13' That Have Nothing to Do with Her Game

After finishing in ninth place last season and becoming one of the biggest villains ever, Rachel Reilly won Big Brother 13 to claim the $500,000. It was a surprisingly close 4-3 with Brendon, Jeff, Jordan and newbie Shelly voting for Rachel to win over Porsche Briggs.  It's hard for me to argue that Porsche truly deserved to win. Yes, she did pretty well in competitions and her "sit back and play the social game" strategy was OK. But Rachel did win more competitions and she did fight harder to stay. Plus, Porsche pathetically miserable performance in the last two question competitions made me really doubt her ability to even tie her own shoes. She was given 11 questions, each with only two possible answers, and only got three right. Read More...

'Big Brother 13's' Porsche: Brendon was promising the jury things for Rachel votes

Porsche Briggs was one vote away from winning "Big Brother 13." She tells Zap2it she was surprised a little at Shelly's vote and that Rachel is as crazy as she comes across on TV.Was "Big Brother" everything you hoped it would be?"Absolutely. It was definitely a crazy experience and a lot of fun. The competitions, you see them on TV and you think it can't be that crazy in real life and then you get out there and it's just awesome."Would you have taken Rachel to the finals if you'd won the final HOH?"Yes, I would have. In 'Big Brother' you only have your deals in this game and towards the end, me and Rachel were really counting on each other's deals to help pulls us through. If I had gone back on that, I would've lost the Brendon/Rachel vote and knowing how Jeff and Jordan were close to Adam, I knew they wouldn't vote...

'Big Brother 13's' Adam: 'I lost a little respect for Rachel's game'

Adam Poch, probably the biggest fan of the show in the house, took third place on "Big Brother 13." He tells Zap2it about how awesome his experience was and why he voted for Porsche to win the money.As a fan, was "Big Brother" everything you hoped it would be?"It was everything I hoped it to be and then some. As a fan of the show, you watch the show, you root for people, but you honestly do not have a clue what you are doing until you are in there and have to make the decisions and have to play the challenges. It was so overwhelming at first. As we went along in the game, I figured things out. I trusted people early that I shouldn't have trusted and worked with people later that I wanted to work with. Watching it on TV is so much easier than actually doing it. It was such a...

Did Adam, Porsche or Rachel Win 'Big Brother 13'? (VIDEO)

It went by so fast. It seems like just yesterday Rachel was crying on 'Big Brother' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on CBS) and driving everyone at home and in the house crazy. And now here she is in the finale with probably the best chance of winning between the Final Three. But first, she has to win the last HOH competition! !!SPOILER ALERT!! It's been awhile since we checked in with the Houseguests, and while we were away, Rachel walked away with the win in Round One of a three-part HOH competition. When it comes to simply hanging onto things, nobody seems able to touch her. Adam gave up quickly, while Porsche hung in there until she was about to hurl.

'Big Brother' winner is...

Tonight, two of the great polarizing contestants in  Big Brother  history will compete against a lovely young girl named after a car. The prize: half a million dollars, plus bragging rights for winning a season defined by rug-pulling twists and Veteran domination. For me, the season never quite recovered its energy after the high point of  the Daniele/Jeff double-eviction bloodbath , but it’s easy to understand why this summer’s  Big Brother  had  the series’ highest ratings since 2004 : From Evel Dick’s mysterious departure to Brendon’s eviction-return-eviction, from Jeff’s betrayed-puppy Jury House meltdown to Jordan’s brilliant farewell-speech takedown of Porsche, and from Daniele’s plotting to Rachel’s semi-schizophrenic mood swings, this was a good season for old favorites. (As for new favorites…well, I kind of liked Shelly.) Read More...
