CBS plans BB3 fantasy game.

CBS plans BB3 fantasy game.
Now viewers of Big Brother 3 will have the chance to manipulate the show’s contestants, although not with quite the same affect as the producer’s manipulations. CBS is planning an online fantasy game for the show. Like fantasy football or the Fantasy Challenge MTV ran for the latest Challenge show, players will create a team of house guests, and will earn points for their house guests’ actions (for things “such as crying, wearing a towel and showing affection with others,” as Zap2it.com reports). Registration for the game begins next Monday on CBS.com.
