Christie Valdiserri was announced to be part of the Big Brother 23 cast. The professional dancer’s bio showed her describing herself as “determined, energetic, and passionate.”

She named Derrick Levasseur and Cody Calafiore as her favorite Big Brother duo. She claimed to be excited about being away from her phone and responsibilities while being on the show. But now Hamster Watch is claiming she has been replaced by someone named Claire Rehfuss.

Garrett Smyles also reportedly was going to be part of the cast, given his picture was prematurely uploaded to CBS’ website. However, once the press release for the season was released, he was absent from the list of cast members. Hamster Watch claimed in a tweet that he was replaced by Christian Birkenberger.
