Big Brother cast say they’ll walk out Wednesday.
“What did you do this summer? Trashed a CBS show.” That’s what Eddie said in response to the house guests promise to collectively walk out of the Big Brother house next Wednesday. First, George decided to walk out with whoever was banished on Wednesday, shortly after he figured out what Josh was hiding: the knowledge of George’s wife’s campaign to banish Brittany. But soon, the other house guests–even Eddie–were promising to walk, too. Although George seems to think they’ll all get paid if they leave together, CBS says they won’t get any cash if they bolt, and the rest of the house guests seem to not care about the money. Will they follow through? Will the producers try something to keep them around? We’ll know in 96 hours.
