Howard Overby won't be winning the grand prize on Wednesday's season finale of CBS's Big Brother (9:30/8:30c) because he was evicted from the game weeks ago. But the popular houseguest still has reason to smile. He's landed a guest spot on his mama's all-time favorite show, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful! TV Guide Magazine spoke with Overby — a youth counselor from Hattiesburg, Miss. — about his two-day suds gig, airing October 24-25.
TV Guide Magazine: You sure know how to make your mother proud!
Overby: This is so exciting! A blessing! I got a call out of the blue from The Bold and the Beautiful asking if I'd like to appear on the show. I said yes without knowing any of the particulars because I was raised in a house with a lot of females — my mom, my grandma and two older sisters — and everyone watched the CBS soaps. And The Bold and the Beautiful is the one my mom loves most. [Laughs] Her only problem is that it's only half an hour long! So getting that call really floored me. It's crazy. There's nothing better than making your mom happy.
TV Guide Magazine: I hear you're playing the DJ/Host on Karaoke Night at the Bikini Bar, when Wyatt and Hope drop by with some of the Forrester Creations international buyers.
Overby: Getting to work with Darin Brooks and Kim Matula was great. We get a real happy-go-lucky, very sexual but laid-back vibe going in the bar. To be at CBS with all that soap-opera and game-show history was a frickin' dream, man! I've done some plays and a little extra work in films with Sylvester Stallone and Nicolas Cage, and have always wanted do more acting. [Laughs] So let's pray for that, America! While I was at CBS, I got to meet Kristoff St. John [Neil] from The Young and the Restless. The whole day I had goosebumps. Rachel Reilly, Brendon Villegas and Jeff Schroeder from Big Brother are also in the same episodes, plus Malcolm Freberg from Survivor.
