Two weeks ago, casting director Robyn Kass announced the former houseguests would be giving casting advice to fans. These pieces of advice would become available starting last Monday. Today’s piece of advice came from Big Brother 17 houseguest Meg Maley.

Meg’s advice was to tell stories about yourself for the casting producers to get to know you. Meg said she would go into the room and have her go to party stories ready as she felt it was the best way for them to get to know her. Those stories she told were usually dating stories because she’s had many horrible dating stories to tell.

This is an interesting piece of advice. If you have good stories, it certainly can’t hurt because it does give producers more information about you. However, this may not always work for everyone.

Meg’s time on Big Brother 17

Meg was known on Big Brother 17 for her relationship with James Huling. Fans and fellow houseguests took calling her “Grandma Meg” between her arthritis and inability to win competitions.

Meg was nominated 4 times over the course of Season 17. Her first nomination came in week 2. Becky Burgess and Shelli Poole both won HOH. Becky nominated Jason Roy and Steve Moses while Shelli nominated John McGuire and Da’Vonne Rogers. Jason and Steve won the Battle of the Block Competition, dethroning Becky as HOH.

Then, John won the POV and used it to save himself from eviction. Meg was nominated in John’s place as a result. At the live eviction, Da’Vonne was evicted 7-2. The 2 votes against meg came from Jason and Audrey Middleton.

In week 3, Austin Matelson and Vanessa Rousso won HOH. Austin nominated Jason and Meg while Vanessa nominated James and John. Jason and Meg won the Battle of the Block, dethroning Austin as HOH.

Meg remained safe until Day 57. By Day 57, the Battle of the Block twist was gone and there was only one HOH per week. On Day 57, Steve Moses won HOH and nominated Jackie Ibarra and Meg for eviction. John won the POV and kept nominations the same. At the live eviction, Jackie was evicted in a 6-1 vote. The lone vote to evict Meg came from Becky.

On Day 71, Vanessa won HOH and wanted to split up James and Meg for good, so she nominated them for eviction. When James won the POV to save himself, it sealed Meg’s fate. Julia Nolan was named the replacement nominee and Meg was evicted in a 4-1, making Meg the 4th member of the jury. The lone vote to keep her came from James. On finale night, Meg cast her vote for Steve to win Big Brother 17.
