By: on June 29, 2010 |

Can you handle it? The first SPOILER ALERT of Big Brother 12 is here… and it’s a JUICY one. The twist for the new season was revealed in a commercial for the new season. We’re putting this in a “Spoiler Alert” section for now… but please be advised that this may make it’s way into further releases on this site. You’ve been warned my friends!

Updated: Want to see a first look inside the Big Brother house? Check out the latest spoiler alert below provided by TVGuide Magazine.

Updated: We’ve added another new promo.

[spoiler name=”SPOILER: Big Brother 12 Twist Revealed”]CBS has released a new promo for the upcoming season of Big Brother 12. In it Julie Chen says the following (check out the video below):

“For the first time in Big Brother history, ONE player is NOT playing to win. This summer a saboteur will wreak havoc in the house.”

Basically Big Brother is choosing a Mole to work for them inside the house. As it stands right now they are not playing to win… so what would be the incentive for this person to keep up the gig? This could get juicy! What do you think of this season’s twist?

Updated: The new twist has been called “Summer Of Sabotage” or… SOS. Check out that video below!

Big Brother UK recently did something similar when a random person from a group of potential housemates was dressed up in a mole suit before entering the house. He then had to do a series of tasks before becoming a full fledged housemate. If anyone found him out he would be evicted. The gag died after a week… do you think this could happen on our version of the show? Time will tell.

(PRESS) Who is the Big Brother Saboteur?

By: on June 29, 2010 |

In a Series First, One Contestant Will Enter the BIG BROTHER House With One Goal: To Secretly Wreak Havoc on Their Fellow Contestants

Fans will Provide Unprecedented Influence over the Game as the “Saboteur” Receives Their Suggested Tasks Directly from the Audience

The producers of BIG BROTHER 12 are implementing a major twist for this season’s batch of Houseguests that will top all past seasons. One Houseguest, known as the Big Brother Saboteur, will enter the house to play their own game, unbeknownst to their fellow competitors. The Saboteur’s mission will be to carry out viewer suggestions on how best to disrupt the lives of fellow players.

Upon moving into the house on premiere night, Houseguests will discover that one of them is not really there to win the game, but rather to sabotage their fellow players. While the saboteur’s identity will remain a secret to the Houseguests, America will learn his/her identity on Thursday, July 15, during the first LIVE show. At that time, fans can begin offering suggestions for how the saboteur should disrupt the game. The longer the saboteur is able to maintain their anonymity while carrying out their fan-inspired sabotage, the more financially rewarding it will be for them. For instructions on how to submit suggestions to the Big Brother Saboteur, visit http://www.cbs.com/bbtwist.

“We’ve inserted a game piece into the show this season that will make life for the Houseguests harder than ever before,” stated Allison Grodner, Executive Producer of BIG BROTHER. “This is a twist that will wreak havoc on the house and the audience will be a part of it.”

Following the premiere on Thursday, July 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), BIG BROTHER will be broadcast three nights weekly, beginning Sunday, July 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Wednesday, July 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and the LIVE eviction show, hosted by Julie Chen, beginning Thursday, July 15 (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT).

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with over 52 cameras and 95 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours-a-day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
