PHOTOS Big Brother 12’s Kristen Bitting bikini photos

One of the new cast members for Big Brother 12 announced yesterday is 24-year-old Kristen Bitting from Philapelphia, PA.  In addition to being a boutique manager, Kristen also spends her time in front of the camera looking mighty fine modeling bikinis! Thanks to the kind folks at we’ve been able to gather up some eye-popping photos of Ms. Bitting that are sure to whet your whistle for the upcoming season 12 of America’s favorite voyeuristic reality competition!

UPDATE – We have since removed the original Pango Pango photos of Kristen and replaced them upon request. We apologize for any confusion that the absence of the original photos may cause.

Mixed in with the yummy eye candy is a bit of intellectual nutrition in the form of Kristen’s bio from CBS. But first, a nice loooooooong look at the tall drink of water that is Kristen Bitting:

Name: Kristen Bitting

Age: 24

Current Residence: Philadelphia, Pa.

Occupation: Boutique Manager

Three adjectives that describe you: Strong-minded, motivated, kind-hearted

Favorite Activities: Going to the gym, meditating, shopping, listening to music, reading, learning new things and living on the edge

What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Having new people understand me, as I am very misunderstood by strangers.

Strategy for winning Big Brother: Be myself

What types of people would you NOT choose to live with you in the house: “Cookie-cutters” and “average Joes”

A recurring theme on Big Brother is “expect the unexpected.” How would you handle “the unexpected:” My life is that way. That would be nothing new to me.

Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most or least: Braden from season 11, he was nice to look at.

What are you afraid of: Nothing. If I had to select one thing that frightens me, I would say failure.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Being ‘on my own’ since 18, financially and otherwise.

Finish this sentence: “My life’s motto is:” Grab life by the balls.

Is there anything else you want to tell the audience about yourself: If I could best describe myself, I am a “quiet storm.” I don’t think there is anyone on reality TV quite like me.

The casting agents sure knew what they were looking for when it comes to this season’s beach theme! You can see more of Kristen and lots of fantastic swimsuits over at the Pango Pango Swimwear website!

In the top two photos Kristen is wearing the Pretzle Monokini, which retails for $100. The bright blue two-piece bikini in the bottom photo is a Royal Triangle Top with Nautical Rhinestone Hardware ($43) and Royal Hipster Cut Bottom with 2 Nautical Rhinestone Hardware ($87).
