Big Brother's nineteenth season is about to commence, and houseguests are already talking about potential alliance names.
Throughout Big Brother history, friendships and alliances form in the house and are given creative, wacky or sometimes lame names -- from "Moving Company" to "Spy Girls," these labels help define what Big Brother is all about.
Ahead of Season 19's premiere, nine of the upcoming 16 houseguests talked to TV Guide about what their dream alliance would be called.
Cameron Heard, a 24-year-old microbiologist from North Aurora, IL, who currently resides in Woodridge, IL, said, "I want to be the Bamboozling Buffoons. Yes. I want to be a pair of two people, guy or girl, I really don't care. There's going to be us two and we're going to bamboozle the rest of these buffoons out of half a million dollars. Let's go!"
Raven Walton, a 23-year-old dance teacher from DeValls Bluff, AR, told the magazine, "I'd probably say Team Sour Patches or something like that."
Megan Lowder, a 28-year-old dog walker from Cathedral City, CA, who currently resides in Phoenix, AZ, came up with something pretty unique: "I thought it'd be hilarious to name it Production. Because you know how they constantly announce on the live feeds, 'Don't talk about production?' It would be like a Fight Club thing."
Christmas Abbott, a 35-year-old fitness enthusiast from Lynchburg, VA, who currently resides in Raleigh, NC, wasn't sure at first but then told TV Guide, "Maybe The Outliers since I've always been an outlier. It depends. There's the Fantastic Four. There's all sorts of really fun names. It depends on who's my alliance to determine that because the alliance names really reflect the alliance personalities."
Cody Nickson, a 32-year-old construction sales representative from Lake Mills, IA, who currently resides in Plano, TX, said, "It was kind of cool when they first started doing it. Now it's kind of a given to where it's not cool anymore. I'd rather be the unspoken alliance. That would be way cooler than the spoken name one."
Jillian Parker, a 24-year-old timeshare sales representative from Celebration, FL, who currently resides in Las Vegas, NV, made a name up on the spot when speaking with the magazine.
"It's Lunar Eclipse because it's really rare. Me, I'm going to have a two-person alliance and we're maybe going to meet up once a week and nobody's even going to know that we're a twosome," Jillian explained.
"But I'm going to pick somebody totally random that nobody will ever expect. And we'll be hopefully in two other alliances and let each other know what's going on and then we'll go to the final two. So that's my plan, but we'll see how that goes."
Kevin Schlehuber, a 55-year-old stay-at-home dad from Boston, MA, revealed he came up with some good ones but his loved ones shot them down.
"My daughters didn't like them. I said the Semanon. Do you know what the Semanon is? It's no names backwards. That's cool, isn't it? Think about it. You can use that, if you want it," Kevin suggested.
Ramses Soto, a 21-year-old cosplay artist from Grand Rapids, MI, would want "something nerdy," adding, "Maybe like the Power Rangers or something like that. And then we could each have our own Power Ranger colors or something like that. Something weird."
And Jason Dent, a 37-year-old rodeo clown from Humeston, IA, told TV Guide, "I'm a cowboy. Everything I do and know is cowboy. I thought it'd be cool to be The Bandits or even The Banditos, The Troubadours or something like that. Those aren't like Bomb Squad-type material. I don't really know. I was just going to feel it out."
Big Brother's nineteenth season returns with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, June 28 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS.
