  1. Julie reveals new twists!

    Hopefully there are no returnees - this twist is big enough to carry the show without them. It does sound promising - no idea what level of control the "Team America" thing will give viewers but as for the main twist I guess the 2 HoHs will nominate two different sets of noms (as having the same noms renders the twist pointless), then the Battle of the Block will determine which set of noms face eviction - and presumably replace the Veto - which I've been saying needs a massive overhaul since about season 8! And then as with all BB twists we'll get to the final 10 and it'll be forgotten about and we'll return to the normal process - possibly with the Veto returning.
  2. BB16 Rumors: Like or Don't like?

    If they hadn't used so many ex-HGs in recent series the time would just about be right for an All Stars series, and though I'd prefer all newbies I think I could take an All Stars season as long as there is a guarantee that the next two seasons at least are all new people - and also nobody in this season has been in more than one previous season. It would be good actually to kind of flip the usual twist and begin with 12 All Stars or so and then send in around 4 newbies to see how that impacts on things.
  3. 14 miles though should probably easily be done in 14 weeks though, even 14 days, not 3 years. When you break it down it's not really as much as it sounds at first.
  4. About time but complete bull - it's pretty much the last version of BB to go HD and most have managed to do it in the off-season. Doesn't sound like the house has changed so I suspect had they stopped and thought about it they'd have realised by actually demolishing the existing set and building a much needed refreshed house they could have probably switched to HD quicker and in the long run cheaper too.
  5. BB16 Rumors: Like or Don't like?

    Not that hopeful at all for this season from CBS. Loving the makeover here though. Not sure what others think but could I suggest we drop the threads for each HG - IMO they've never really worked and the forum hasn't been flowing as nicely as it used to before they were introduced. Maybe a sub-forum with one thread for each for the entire series would be a compromise for any discussion related specifically for individuals, but on the whole most discussion involves more than one HG so just letting the forum play out naturally is the best option.
  6. The "15th Houseguest" speculation thread

    To confirm for anyone following but not really watching the 15th HG is a choice of three chosen by viewers, of which Scott is one of them. The three HGs moved into a secret "war room" after the first eviction where they will live for 7 days and be able to watch (but not hear) the house feeds live24/7. After the 2nd eviction the winner will be revealed and move into the house, with the other two evicted. It's not as new or original as producers pledged pre-series - it's been done in various forms in most series across the world, with one recent favourite being housing them in a glass house in a shopping centre or other public location for the week. However I think it's a long overdue twist to the BBUSA format and it will be interesting to see how it plays out. Often in the public vote format the HGs stop targetting each other and aim to get the newbie out instead, but I think with the US/Canadian format they will be trying to win over their vote. Play it right and the latecomer could probably get into a secret alliance with every HM.
  7. The "15th Houseguest" speculation thread

    Is a rumour it's Andrew's twin brother, which seems pointless considering he wasn't the most interesting of HGs. I suspect the 15th HG will somehow be the viewer.
  8. House revealed

    Slice have released photos of the house, and it'll be previewed on ET Canada tonight. http://www.slice.ca/big-brother-canada/photos/the-house/#!b538957021a163aea456df3425c51bda Despite the new location the layout is much the same, though with a few tweaks including a bigger bathroom and new pool area. HoH room seems smaller too.
  9. Season 2 confirmed

    http://www.bbspy.co.uk/bb14/news/0605/big-brother-canada-renewed-for-second-season BB Canada will return in the 2013/14 second, with Arisa Cox confirmed as returning and casting details to be announced shortly.
  10. Season 2 confirmed

    More news emerging about the second season this week with confirmation that circumstances have forced the show to relocate, so they'll be a brand new house - plus a tease of a major twist not seen before which will involve the Canadian public. http://www.bbspy.co.uk/bbcan/news/1102/big-brother-canada-to-move-house-for-season-two http://www.bbspy.co.uk/bbcan/news/1102/major-original-twist-planned-for-big-brother-canada-season-two-2014
  11. Big Brother Renewed for 16th Season

    The house is the shows biggest asset and can be central to numerous twists, but has to be designed with those twists in mind, so needs tweaking every so often to accomodate new ideas. Keeping the house the same every year is just limiting their possibilities, and even without twists a change in house can change the game - for example making it smaller and more claustrophobic so HGs can't really get away from each other, or using glass walls so they can't hide from each other. Even without changing the layout would love to see the HoH room become glass fronted to half the house doesn't hide up their all week. They can use switching glass so the HoH can frost the windows when they want as a compromise, but little changes like that can have an effect on how people play the game and interact with each other - but keeping the house the same every year for a decade means it's not having the impact on the houseguests it should.
  12. Big Brother Renewed for 16th Season

    I've seen reports Allison is leaving too, but I won't believe it until I see it. We've beeen saying every year for what seems forever she needs to go - but this year it goes beyond creative reasons. Her absolute failure to address the racism issue, both in the house and also outside of the house means she just has to go. Apart from comments from Julie we've seen nothing from "Big Brother" itself about it. I've given up hoping for any major game changes,though the MVP was the first decent idea in years, just poorly executed and screwed by putting Elissa in the house. Also resigned to their probably being ex-houseguests next year as can't see them going two seasons without them. Would love for the house to finally be ripped apart and rebuilt after ten entire seasons of exactly the same layout, but not getting my hopes up about that.
  13. Jury 4 Way Competition Will Be Interesting

    Guess Helen kind of needs to go this week so hopefully Judd or Candice return. I fear if Elissa is up the viewers will vote her back in and that will change absolutely nothing.
  14. BB15 The Jury Discussion

    They hinted at it but it'll likely be far earlier than Canada did it, not with just 4 or 5 left in the house.
  15. Andy - DE/Week 7 (Week 7 HoH & PoV Winner)

    Agree Elissa and Helen would be his best, but if Amanda did somehow win the final HoH she wouldn't think twice about evicting McCrae. No opinion of his own - such a cowardly player. And a stupid one too - he could secure his place in the house by backdooring Amanda, though I guess the three days of agro isn't worth it. If all Veto Ceremonies were during the live show I suspect the HoH's would be more willing to rock the boat. If he nominated Amanda though he'd only have McCrae probably going after him if he struck a deal with Elissa and Helen.
  16. Taking out the Backdoor Option

    Three ways to limit the backdoor possibilities: Firstly - a spin on the MVP idea in the original post but essentially the HoH nominates two as normal and then the Veto is played. The twist is if the Veto is used it's America that uses it - control of the replacement nominee is taken out of the house, and the new nominee is only revealed just before the vote. Secondly keep it as the HoH nominating two people and six play the Veto - but the twist is rather than random draw we go back to the HoH and nominees choosing who plays in the Veto. However there is a catch - only those who play in the Veto are eligible to be nominated. That actually could be a good anti-floater measure - nominees are not going to want to pick people who won't save them but won't want to pick their allies as potential replacements either (though rather them than me), so floaters could end up forced to play the Veto. Thirdly and one I've been talking about for years - double the jackpot to $1m, but everytime the Veto is used $100,000 is wiped off. Cue nominees being told they're safe in order to save $100k - and people really having to think whether a potential saved HM can really help them to the end before saving them.
  17. I agree - can't believe they didn't put the safe guard of no back to back MVP wins in. They really should have gone back to a HG being MVP after the first week America was and just announced that from that point on there could be no back to back wins as the weeks break would have kind of "reset" it. A real shame it's gone now - it was the most interesting part of the series and rather than the seemingly inevitable juror being back in the game I'd have liked to have seen the MVP power handed over to the jury from this point forward, with viewers voting each week for the juror they want to choose the third nominee. As the only person on the jury this week's first evictee would have been MVP by default for the second eviction, solving the problem of a live vote. At the very least though they should have kept MVP a little bit longer - and as a one off for the double eviction forced the HoH to nominate three people instead of two. That would likely have thrown a spanner in the works this week as I think Aaryn would have struggled choosing a third on the spot.
  18. Andy - DE/Week 7 (Week 7 HoH & PoV Winner)

    Despite all the offensive crap going around he is single handedly ruining this series by refusing to man up and play his own game instead of being Amanda and Helen's little bitch. He has been the key vote over the last couple of weeks and he could have turned the game in his favour by getting Amanda out and creating a new alliance with the otherside of the house, while remaining fairly low on Helen and co's targets as they'd have gone after the likes of Judd and Jessie, not Andy. It would be nice to see him grow some balls and call out Amanda for her plan to get him to nominate Helen and put her and McCrae on the block - but of course he won't. He'll stick to the "house" plan (and by house I mean Helen) and just continue picking people off at the bottom of the food chain - ignoring the fact that once Jessie and Spencer are gone he's probably in the firing line himself.
  19. I think it's the best twist to happen to BBUSA in a long time and I hope it is here to stay. Whether America nominating would work as well when it's not a secret I don't know, but I think it's great viewers have more of an impact than deciding what food they eat, but the HoH still has the bigger say - and I do think if the HGs did know the strategy would be to keep America's nominees around and evict a HoH nominee as they know if someone is unpopular with viewers one week, they're likely to be unpopular the next week too.
  20. BB 15 General Discussion - Part 2

    That is what makes it brilliant though. Most years every single move in the season is just so damn predictable and HGs have pretty much got the week figures out before the HoH has made their nominations. The wild card of firstly the MVP nomination, and secondly and more so the secret viewers nomination, is really making it far more unpredictable and far more difficult for people like Helen and Amanda to control the house.
  21. America - Week 5 - MVP

    Well they did back in BB7 with the double HoH - in the (highly unlikely) event they couldn't agree on the nominations the HoH's would have been the nominees.
  22. America - Week 5 - MVP

    Face to face voting is never as fun as you'd think it would be (we've done it a few times in the UK, it's all rather an anti-climax). However if they opted to have the HGs rather than viewers vote for the MVP that would be good done face to face, though everyone needs to lock in their vote before they reveal them.
  23. America - Week 5 - MVP

    As an outsider I'd quite like to see the third nominee remain long term and America's Vote is a good way of doing things - and it's shaking up the plan each week too rather than being predictable predictable predictable. I think the Veto needs opening up to at least 8 people though (personally I'd have everyone play). I do think the MVP should return to being someone in the house this week though - and if Elissa wins it again maybe the following week make it a (decent) Pandoras Box twist. The HoH can open it and become MVP - but the catch is if the MVP nominee is removed from the block the HoH is the replacement.
  24. BB 15 General Discussion - Part 2

    Really hope things turn in the house and Amanda ends up going home.
  25. BB15 General Discussion

    They didn't even do anything when Candice was personally attacked.
