The tradition continues ...
They may not have won season 25 of Big Brother, but two players have just become the first season 25 contestants to win another annual coveted prize. EW can exclusively report that runner-up Matt Klotz and fifth-place finisher Cirie Fields will become the latest Big Brother stars to appear on CBS soap opera The Bold and The Beautiful — a tradition that dates back almost 20 years.
Season 5 Big Brother winner Drew Daniel became the first contestant to guest star on The Bold and The Beautiful when he played a press conference reporter named Drew back in 2004. Since then, over 30 Big Brother players have appeared on the soap — led by season 13 champ Rachel Reilly, who has guest-starred 29 times.
Cirie and Matt are filming their scenes today for an episode that will air on Wednesday, Dec. 20. Cirie — a periop systems director for a three-hospital system in New Jersey who also competed four times on CBS' Survivor and won the first season of Peacock's The Traitors — will be playing Dr. Martin, a physician who provides consult to her colleagues Dr. John "Finn" Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) and Dr. Bridget Forrester (Ashley Jones) on a patient they are treating.
As for Matt, he will be playing a character named James who is an employee of fashion house Forrester Creations who works alongside RJ (Joshua Hoffman), Luna (Lisa Yamada) and Zende (Delon de Metz).
Matt's guest-starring spot is a nice consolation prize after he lost a final Big Brother jury vote 5-2 to alliance-partner Jag Bains on Thursday's live finale. One of those two votes came from his new The Bold and The Beautiful costar Cirie. No word yet on if and when Felicia Cannon will be making her The Bold and the Beautiful debut, and on whose bed she will be leaving her toenail clippings.
