Cassandra almost leaves the house.

Cassandra almost leaves the house.
Increasingly upset and irritated by Big Brother‘s force-fed activities for the house guests, Cassandra went into the red room and said she was leaving voluntarily because, “I don’t want to do it, I’m not going to do it. I’m not going to do things to hurt people in the house. The stuff that you guys are doing to us is worse than anything we’re doing to each other.” After an hour, Cassandra said she’d give it one more shot; the voice essentially talked her out of leaving. It didn’t take Cassandra long to talk to the others about what happened, and that solidified the house guests against the producers even more. Here’s hoping for a walk-out.
