Are they playing for fame? Or do the 12 new houseguests want to win the game? "Yeah, absolutely [I want fame]! I want to let my light shine I want to impact others," Corey Brooks tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Brooks may have already gotten his wish, but not in the way he hoped for. The baseball coach from Dallas is facing backlash after using inflammatory remarks against the LGBT community such as the word "f—" in many posts on social media that have recently resurfaced online. The new batch of houseguests need to be careful, because if season 15 is any indication, frequent racist and insensitive comments could cost players their jobs and turn the American public against them.
Others houseguests like Paul Abrahamian admit they could care less about garnering fame from the summer staple. "I don't give a shit about fame, infamy, money, no money," he says. "I'm happy with my life coming in here." And this season's oldest contestant, Glenn Garcia, 50, will even sniff out the players who are playing for all of the wrong reasons: "I'll expose that shit! And I'll tell them who they are and what they are if I have to."
THR spent the day with the new cast on Monday as they were shuffled from room to room, blindfolds and all, to avoid seeing each other. Who will win? Who will be the first houseguest evicted? Read their interviews carefully, and you might just be able to predict how this season may unfold:
