Say what you will about Memorial Day and Fourth of July, but summer doesn’t truly start for us until Julie Chen is welcoming a new collection of idiots contestants to the Big Brother house. And those idiots contestants will be welcomed tonight! Of course, there’s always a twist, and season 13’s shake-up is that some “dynamic duos” from past seasons will also be returning to play again. To break it all down, we scored an exclusive interview with a true inside source: the Zingbot 3000! While my previous interview with the Zingbot didn’t go so well, I was promised by his “handlers” that the sassy little scamp would be on his best behavior this time, so in the interest of letting bygones be bygones, I decided to give him another chance. What’s Zingy’s take on the newbies? What does he think about some of the possible returning players? And why is the wisecracking robot locked in a feud with a big name movie director? The Zingbot shares all (some would say a little too much) in our exclusive via satellite sit down interview. Click on the video below to see for yourself. And for more non-reality star robot related news and views, follow me on Twitter @EWDaltonRoss.
