Brekkie Boy Posted November 11, 2005 Share Posted November 11, 2005 I'm not going into ideas for revamping the formats of competitions this time (my brain isn't up to it at the moment!) but one idea I think could improve the show is by having a theme to competitions each week, beginning with the Head of Household competition. The theme would continue with the Food Competition, Veto Competition and Luxury Competition. Also, this could pave the way for the introduction of on-going "Weekly tasks" as luxury competitions, running over three or four days. I want your ideas for a themed week of competitions, covering Head of Household, Food, Veto and Luxury. You can use previous competitions if they work with your theme, though it's better if you can try and add a new twist. I'll begin with an example: THEME: DISCO FEVER HoH: GETTING READY! Houseguests must race against the clock to be ready for tonight's disco. They must change into their 70s outfits, race down the red carpet and down a cocktail, with the first one to do so being the new HoH. FOOD: COCKTAILS FROM HELL It's a game done in various forms before - and this time it's cocktails. Each cocktail contains a mystery ingredient, with each HG having to identify it by drinking their cocktail. VETO: SNAPSHOT Our Veto contestants compete individually as they become the paparazzi. Armed with a digital camera, the contestants enter the garden which has been transformed into Hollywood. They must try and snap as many "celebs" as possible as they briefly make their apperance, with the HG who takes the most photos of celebs being the winner. LUXURY: ON THE DANCE FLOOR A dance floor is erected in the garden. Each houseguest is assigned a dance - and when their music is played they have 1 minute to grab a partner and get to the dancefloor and perform their moves. The HoH's dance is the Conga - which must be done with all the houseguests. It's a game that lasts a few days, and the houseguests can be called to the dancefloor any time day or night, with only three fails allowed. Complete the challenge though and the houseguests get their very own night on the town - in the house of course! And that's my idea. Coming with with four competitions within the same theme is more difficult than you think (my Veto comp is evident of that!) - but it's something that could make the next series feel different, especially if each week the house is given a mini-makeover to match the theme - which in my case would mean some bad 70s decor and disco balls! There are a number of themes you can look at - periods in history, topics of interest, even TV programmes or in CBS's case, sponsors - such as a week of games linked to K-Mart and of course, probably reserved for the final week, Big Brother itself!
