When the CBS reality show “Big Brother” premieres later this month, NEPA folks will see a familiar face.
Mountain Top’s Sam Smith, 31, is among the cast for the show’s 21st season, which kicks off with a two-night premiere on Tuesday, June 25, and Wednesday, June 26, at 8 p.m. Competing for a $500,000 grand prize, Smith and 15 others will have no access to the outside world as they live in a home equipped with cameras and microphones, and engage in different games and competitions. The competitors will vote off a player each week.
Smith, a West Nanticoke native, described himself in his profile for the show as a truck driver who is “outgoing, bold and comical” and enjoys “riding my R1, playing basketball and having friends over for pool parties.”
