Big Brother 10 Says Hello to Grandpa
We recently relayed a handful of Big Brother spoilers. Now, Entertainment Weekly delves further into the issue of age on the show's tenth season.

According to that magazine, a 75-year-old man will be among the new set of live-ins vying for the $500,000 cash prize this summer.

"It's the most diverse cast we've ever had in terms of ages, backgrounds, points of view, and personalities," executive producer Allison Grodner said. "Big Brother 9 involved couples, singles, and soul mates who were young, single, impulsive, and ready to party. We do a 180 with Big Brother 10.

The series premieres on July 13 and Grodner added:

"This summer you're going to find a 22-year-old body builder and a 75-year-old great-grandpa in the house, and everyone else in between. We've had diversity of age in past, but he's clearly the oldest contestant we've ever had."
