woman reenters Australian Big Brother house after being voted out due to an error.
After some votes were accidentally left out of the total count, the wrong person was evicted from Australia’s Big Brother 5 house on Sunday. Bree went back into the house Monday night, prohibited from discussing anything she witnessed during her 24 hours of freedom. According to the AAP, “Legion Interactive, the company responsible for counting the phone and SMS votes, took responsibility for the error, which occurred when a small number of votes were excluded from the tally.” The show’s executive producer said it was important to let her back in the house: “The most important thing is human error cannot be allowed to deprive Bree (of) her chance to win the $1 million prize.”
