I'm watching Australia BB and they have task that last several days. One week the houseguest would wake up to the back yard being extremely messy as if there was a party the night before and they had to clean it up. If they completed the task then they were awarded previleges. The next week they had to take turns catching balls that came over the wall. This week they have partnered up to learn different dances. So they have to practice all week for the Sunday show. They are not allowed to strategize unless they are in the Strategy room. The HOH does not have their own room. The American version is so boring because it seems like they just sit around and don't have much to do unless it is the couple of competitions and then they just last a few hours and it is over. Back to sitting around.
