are there two sets of twins on BB5?
In its recap of the latest twists and turns from inside the Big Brother 5 house,’s Rick Porter asks the question that has become the subject of much speculation: is it true “that Drew has been switching places with his twin, Ben, just as Adria and Natalie have been doing”? We might find out soon, as this week marks the halfway point in the series, so the twins are set to reveal their duplicity to the rest of the house. It almost didn’t happen, though; last week, Adria was nominated for eviction. However, as Jam! Showbiz’s John Powell points out, this gave producers the chance to change their own rules once again: “Even though Julie Chen had declared that the twins were playing the game as “one player” (such as only the active twin casting an eviction vote each week) until the five week goal was met … she amended the stipulation last night stating that if one twin was booted, the other would continue on in the competition.” Back in the house, Scott and Jase are honked off that Diane, their sworn enemy, nominated them; Scott said, she “is gonna feel the wrath of me, hardcore.” Yes, hardcore indeed, Scott.
