Lots of good information:

Big Brother 9 After Dark is getting axed in favor of a having Sequester house filmed. The sequester house will be filmed by a regular TV crew it will not be a 24Hour live feed. The show will air on ShowTime from midnight to 3 AM on a daily basis.

In a recent interview with Alison Grodner it was confirmed that there will be no America’s player. “That’s really hard to do twice,” Grodner said. “Anyone coming to be a part of ‘Big Brother’ this year would know about it and we’d hate to have people act differently because they think that the viewers are in control. … That doesn’t mean that it couldn’t return in some other way, but doing exactly what we did again, no.”

There will be no link between the players.

Due to last seasons prolific rule breaking Big Brother 9 may institute a 3 Strikes rule, and any contestant who knowingly or unknowingly breaks 3 of the golden rules, is called to the DR and summarily dumped without a word to the other HGs, then replaced by an alternate HG. Strict lights out policy and wake up times. Serious regimentation. Chores. Etc…. Almost to the point where the season would be referred to as Big Brother Boot Camp.

Go back to the nominees picking someone they want to play them in the POV, as opposed the picking a “blessed by god ping pong ball”. If that person the nominee selected wins the Power of Veto they have to take you off the block.

Outgoing Head of Household is allowed to play for the following weeks HOH

Big Brother 10 will start in June and be made up of semi popular movie stars. Rob and Amber Mariano are rumored once again to be casted on Big Brother 10

Chen-bot to return as the Host

Me and the wife also love the show but were put off by the fact that dick and his daughter were both in the final. They have a huge advantage over the other people in the house. We didn't even watch the final.


That wasn't my favorite season either, and we too didn't watch the finale. It would be nice also if they would bring in normal people who weren't represented by an agent, or didn't have a Hollywood connection. My area, Central Illinois, was represented by a guy a few years back, Jase, who rarely lived here, was represented by an agent, and was portrayed as a fire fighter (he was a volunteer firefighter for a very short time), and his actual occupation was an actor. Also, even though Will was cast as the evil doctor, he showed much more class and cunning than evil Dick ever did and would easily outlast him.

Willl be interesting. I'm surprised showtime will be able to air the sequester house or after dark. I think they have a pretty big set of regular shows. Of coarse they may have issues airing them with the strike. Glad to hear thier will not be a americas player. That was a great idea last season but people would totally look for it this year. Would be great if america could effect the game in different ways though, vote on challanges, food chores etc..
