Ever wanted to get inside the Big Brother house, but couldn’t stomach a 3 month long power struggle? Well now CBS is giving you the chance!
Every year Big Brother let’s a group of journalists move inside the house for a weekend prior to the houseguests moving in. It helps the producers test drive the new look house while drumming up a bit of publicity in traditional and online media.
But they’ve taken it one step further this year. They have launched the Ultimate Fan Sweepstakes. Users will register and and complete a series of 5 challenges to be entered into the contest. The winner will receive a day inside the Big Brother house with the other journalists and will compete in a series of Big Brother style challenges.
