Work It Out: Big Brother

In honor of CBS releasing the premier date for the summer sensation "Big Brother" (which, I'm sure, we'll be live tweeting), I thought it'd be great to find out what some of our favorite past "Big Brother" contestants do to keep in shape--so they're not totally ashamed to be parading in their swimsuits on national TV for three months.



First, let's start with the man everyone loves to hate, and loves to look at--Dr. Will Kirby.

What alot of people have a hard time remembering is that Dr. Will is an actual doctor of medicine. He's a board certified dermatologist! And while he may not be dishing his workout tips anytime soon, he IS an advocate for healthy exercising in general. In an interview with SHAPE Magazine, he talked about how to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. And frankly, nothing ruins a summer bod then gross skin. So what's the scoop, doc?

"In order to keep skin looking young, one doesn't have to invest in high-priced treatments. Simply keeping yourself healthy by eating well, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, getting an adequate amount of sleep and avoiding smoking will help in achieving a more youthful glow."

He also recommends wearing sunscreen all the time, even when you're driving in the car, "Every day, no exceptions".

Now let's look at the world's most annoying gym rat--Jessie "Mr. Pectacular" Godderz.

I missed this season of Big Brother (and my editor hasn't forgiven me for it). But Mr. Pectacular DID make an appearance in last season's series...and he was the bad prize. Rachel THOUGHT she'd get some one on one time with a "celebrity", and opted for the prize. What ended up happening was she got stuck with Pectacular and everyone else got Tori Spelling.

He may be full of himself, and you may be filled with an uncontrollable urge to slap him, but there's no denying this guy is ripped. And who knows, maybe underneath all that cockiness, he's got something going. I mean, he's determined, he IS confidant, and he's got results! Who knows, maybe picking up some weights is the trick you've been looking for!

And finally, let's talk about some of the Big Brother ladies! To keep with my youtube clip theme, I managed to find Jen and Jessica from Big Brother 8 working on their abs (please excuse the creepy full unitard body shot of Jen in the beginning)

No woman has really been known to be a workout fiend on Big Brother. But they are known to have confidence in their swim suits! They are known to eat right (even if that means Peanut Butter and Jelly or Slop), and they're usually pretty fierce competitors (i.e. Janelle, Jen, Rachel--BEASTS). So, maintain a healthy workout regimen, and soon enough, you'll be a beast too. And as Jen and Jessica demonstrate here, it can be little things done daily that can make a difference!

And if all else fails, you could always do this:
