    Marvin Achi replaced

    Big Brother tweeted of the cast shakeup: "Important casting update! Marvin will no longer be one of our Houseguests on this season of Big Brother. We’re excited to welcome Joseph, a 24-year-old lawyer from Lake Worth, FL. to the #BB24 cast!" 

    One fan commented on the tweet: “What happened? Can someone please explain to me.”

    Another said: “I bet it’s that the America’s Got Talent network didn’t allow him to be on a CBS show at the same time.”

    A third wrote: “Marvin is on America's Got Talent right now and CBS did NOT know that unless US FANS on Twitter found that out.”

    Recruits must watch a season

    No singing in the Big Brother house

    No houseguest is permitted to start singing at any time while they are a part of Big Brother, according to a report from The Things.
