We’ve got our first look at the Big Brother 12 contestants courtesy of a video that you can watch below and — shocker! — they appear to be another collection of self-obsessed type-A egomaniacs. And guess what? We wouldn’t have it any other way! “The magic is always in the casting,” announces host Julie Chen at the start of the clip. You could easily substitute “tragic” for “magic”, but you get the point. Sure enough, two different contestants (Rachel, Brendon) use the word “boobs” in their brief comments, while Kristen promises to do “close to anything” to win, “reeeeeeeally close to anything.” (Naturally.) Meanwhile, Andrew talks about the difficulty of being a “practicing Jew” in the house, while Ragan promises that “I will use my gayness” — whatever that means. (There’s also a bisexual in the cast, Annie.) And our award for most annoying first impression — in a landslide — goes to Matt, who painfully strikes many idiotic poses, all of which involve heavy metal hand gestures and a cheesed-out scowl.
