I put a lot of pressure on myself coming into the second year of Big Brother Press Day considering I won HOH (head of household) and tied for overall victory with ET Canada's Matte Babel in 2012.
BB Royalty also roamed the house this year as Jillian MacLaughlin, the first Canadian winner, was representing ET's northern sibling. Would she and I work together as well as Matte and I had? Yes and no, it turned out.
Regardless of who wins, a second stab at living/breathing/playing my favorite reality show continues to be the best day of my year -- like my birthday, Hanukkah and the Fourth of July rolled into one. Because, as you'll see from the video above, there were fireworks!
Big Brother 15 premieres June 26 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
