Reposted from a BB newsgroup. As usual, take with a grain of salt until substantiated.

Well, it appears that they’re dipping into the BB14 playbook for this season since it was deemed a success the last time it was used.

The muckity-mucks in charge of Big Brother U.S. are actively pursuing a number of past winners (those who either aren’t in prison or persona-non-grata due to past indiscretions) to head up four teams of newbies in the BB house this season.

So far, only two unnamed past winners have basically shown great interest to reappear pending negotiations on certain “perks” that they are requesting. One such winner was last seen on ‘The Amazing Race’ not too long ago, and the other has a scheduling conflict with his college which may (or may not) be cleared in time before the June 25th premier.
