After returning to the house and winning HOH, Amy told the other house guests that Big Brother 3 producers “encouraged” her to win HOH. That has some house guests and fans saying that she was essentially tipped off to Operation Revolving Door, the other house guests’ plan to immediately vote out whoever reentered the house. Jam! Showbiz asked CBS about the accusations; a publicist said, “Of course the producers didn’t tell her anything about the game.” However, Amy also told other house guests that she discussed the show with fans she met during her sequestration, which would be a violation of the rules.
