Big Brother Producers Tease a Twist… TONIGHT!

This morning Big Brother producing partners Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly, in which they divulged an interesting couple of tidbits, including a possible twist that will play out during tonight’s live broadcast!

When asked how she felt about the saboteur being the first person ousted, Allison said “The saboteur may not be dead after all! You’ll find out more tonight (July 29). Make sure you watch! We loved this twist. We were hoping it would go longer. But we don’t rig this show. People accuse us of rigging this show, people accuse us of trying to manipulate things. We don’t! We picked someone who was playing her own game, who was a huge fan, who had everything going for her. It wasn’t the saboteur (twist) that got her out, it was her own silly game play – which she did not have to overdo. We would have loved for it to go longer, but it didn’t. And the summer goes on! We ran this risk on every twist we’ve played.”

Also, apparently this season CBS and the producers decided to sequester all of the houseguests both prior to entering the house, and after leaving it. Grodner: “We’ve done that in seasons past because of the expect the unexpected. That might happen. It’s become a safety net for us. If it plays into something, it plays into something. It may or may not.”

When asked about the blossoming love between Brendan and Rachel, Grodner was quick to dismiss comparisons to last year’s couple, Jeff & Jordan, saying “I swear, I think we may get a Big Brother wedding out of this, not to mention that Jeff and Jordan are still together. Wouldn’t that be great? And Jeff will be back too. Jeff might be spending the night in the house in a couple of weeks so look out for that! I can’t say that Brendon and Rachel are the same as Jeff and Jordan; they are kind of the anti-Jeff and Jordan, but they are truly madly, deeply…there was a scene that we’ll figure out how to get in that played over the internet, where he starts to talk about how he’s going to introduce her to the family. He’s starting to worry about how his mom is not going to like her. At which point, she’s like, `What?’ It starts friction.”

Here at Big Brother 12 Blog, we’ve been tossing around the idea of the 3 year vote-in. As it stands now, every three seasons they use twist to vote someone back in to the house. They did it the 3rd season, the 6th, and the 9th. Will Season 12 follow suit? Make sure to stick with us, and tune in live tonight to find out!
