Our favorite guilty pleasure of summer is almost upon us! Big Brother just unveiled its eight new houseguests, but the big news was the revelation that former dynamic duos will be returning to play in the game as well. Could we be seeing more of Jeff & Jordan? Dr. Will and Mike Boogie? Evel Dick and daughter Daniele? Or — gulp! — Brendon and Rachel? Jessica Shaw and Lynette Rice join me in ranking which duos we’d like to see and which we hope to never see again. We also relive the hilariously inane twists of past Big Brother seasons (The X-Factor! Summer of Secrets! Project DNA: Do Not Assume!), and give our first impressions of the new cast. It’s a must listen for all Big Brother fans.

Also on the menu, Jessica and I lament the fact that Javier beat out Dia, Beverly, and Vicci for the first-ever Voice title. But we pull ourselves out of our little pity party to look at the future of the show. Should they tweak the format a bit? Swap out any coaches? Get a new host? Ditch that painful social media room? We break it all down.
