In the meantime, we have some news on some of our favorite Big Brother Alums who are heading to a new reality series. Multi-talented and award-winning Alan Cumming, probably best known for his portrayal of Eli in The Good Wife will be hosting and producing a new reality series that will be set in the Scottish Highland for Peacock. The show is called “The Traitors” and both TV icons and America’s best players will compete for a chance to win $250,000. All the contestants will move into a majestic Scottish castle and compete together in a series of dramatic and challenging missions to earn money for the ultimate prize pot. The big twist here is that three of the contestants are secretly traitors who will attempt to manipulate and deceive. There will be ten episodes and the show’s creators think there is nobody better than Alan to host this new reality show, “In a game of secrecy, suspicion and plot twists, who better to take the helm and guide our game players through the drama and challenging missions than our very own Scot, Alan Cumming.”
Allegedly the cast has already been chosen, some from Big Brother, Survivor, Below Deck, Real Housewives, The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars, and more.
Big Brother Spoilers – Will BB Allums Be The Traitors?
BB fans fondly remember Rachel Reilly who won season 13 of Big Brother and participated in three seasons of The Amazing Race, two with her husband Brandon Villegas and one with her sister Elissa Slater. Rachel is no stranger to Big Brother, she first was introduced in season 12 and quickly became a fan favorite. Rachel was nominated for eviction five times in season 13 and still went on to win the $500,000 prize. For you soap fans out there, Rachel also played a recurring role as a waitress in The Bold And The Beautiful. In The Traitor, Rachel will be participating without Brandon this time, she is going solo in hopes of bringing home the prize.
Another BB alum who fans love is Cody Calafiore, the winner of Big Brother 22: All-Stars, but that was not his first appearance in the BB house. Cody began his BB entrance in season 16 and quickly formed “The Hitmen” alliance with Derrick Levasseur who went on to win the season. The two worked together with the goal being that they would take each other to the final two. Cody, to his word, took Derrick to the final two with him and fans considered that was one of the worst decisions in the show’s history which resulted in Cody being a runner-up and only winning $50,000. Like Rachel, Cody also had a family member appear in Big Brother, his older brother Paulie was on BB 18 and placed eighth overall. Now, the BB houseguest turned model, is heading to Scotland with Rachel and some other reality stars in the hopes of winning more cash and maybe becoming “The Traitors.”
