Big Brother 5 twin twist revealed tonight.

Big Brother 5 twin twist revealed tonight.
Big Brother 5‘s big twist will be revealed tonight as twins Adria and Natalie reveal their duplicity and both become full-time members of the household. Producer Arnold Shapiro tells USA TODAY that tonight represents “the crowning moment in the five years of Big Brother.” How will the people in the house react? Will they get drunk on Nyquil and then make out using knives as props? Will they clean the toilet with the twins’ toothbrushes? Will they do a strip tease with a broom? Will they go completely insane, spending the majority of their waking lives following what’s going on 24/7 with paranoid delusional strangers living inside a trailer located on the CBS parking lot? We’ll find out tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Also during tonight’s episode, one of the four men in an alliance may get the boot: In an effort to break up the group known as the “Horsemen” (uh huh), Jase and Scott were nominated for eviction by Diane, but on Tuesday’s episode, Jase won the Golden Veto thingy and saved his own butt. Thus, tonight, either Marvin or Scott will get the boot.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
