Big Brother Adds Amazing Race Blind Date Team In First 'Takeover' Twist

Big Brother Jeff Jackie

CBS has taken the term “cross-promotion” to the next level, adding a pair of Amazing Race alumni to the 17th season of Big Brother.

Jeff Weldon and Jackie Ibarra, who competed on the most recent season of The Amazing Race as a blind date couple, were added to the new Big Brother cast on Thursday’s episode of the reality staple. Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan visited the Big Brother house to announce the news.

Jeff and Jackie’s presence on the show is the first “BB Takeover” twist of the summer, which will introduce a new surprise into the Big Brother house each week.

The pair finished in seventh place on The Amazing Race.

    What happened to Julie Chen? She looks terrible! Skin and bones! Looks like a ten year old boy. No curves, no boobs, no hips, and a hugh head! Somebody give her a cheeseburger.

    Bg Brother is disappointing so far. I didn’t like the Battle of the Block so I don’t care that it’s back. Jeff and Jacki were annoying on The Amazing Race and I’m sure they’ll be the same on BB.

    The ‘twists’ don’t sound very exciting, given the first one was J&J. The cast this year seems like one of the worst.

    Since when do you allow the f-word to be said so much on Big Brother. if it continues i may be forced to not watch it anymore.I love Big Brother but can’t stand to hear that cuss word. What has happened that you would let this happen.

    I think Jeff looks like Phil Keghan’s son.
