An all new season of Big Brother starts tonight on CBS!!! I’m so excited. This is definitely my favorite summer series and this year there are a few new twists to the show. (You can see a photo gallery of the new house at the end of this article.) It’s still on three nights a week but somehow I still can’t get enough and usually watch “Big Brother After Dark” on Showtime. This year they will still air “After Dark” but it has moved to the TVGN (TV Guide Network). This is an unedited look inside the house for two hours (one less than last season) every night and it’s live!! Yes sometimes it can be very boring but you do find out things before they air on the shows regular nights, Tuesday, Wednesdays and Sundays, on CBS. Of course you can also subscribe for a fee to the live feeds but I just read the updates on sites like www.realitybbq.com. And there’s tons of others!
Ok now for the twists this season…instead of two nominees up for eviction each week there will be three houseguests up for eviction! In the second twist, we, as in viewers, will be able to vote for a weekly “Big Brother MVP” and they will get a “secret power.” All of this should be revealed tonight in the season opener. “With America rewarding good game play, it doesn’t pay to be a floater this summer,” exec producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan tease in a statement. Julie Chen, ChenBOT, will be back as the host. Here’s a look at the new house:
