contestants will vote each other out of next Big Brother; audience will select the winner.
Seemingly in response to suggestions from those who suffered through last year’s Big Brother, or maybe just the result of common sense, the next season of the CBS show will find the cast members voting each other out of the house. During the show, which CBS’ site promises will “have a fresh look” and “an exciting new format,” the TV audience will only get involved to select the winner from the final three. Applications are now being accepted for the show. No word about whether or not Julie Chen will return from hiding to host.
