First jury member will be evicted Saturday night

Those wacky Big Brother 6 producers just announced another twist, although it’s not a huge one. Tonight, after Kaysar or Janelle leaves the house, a new HOH will be selected as usual. But that HOH will have to immediately nominate two people for eviction, and one of them will leave Saturday evening, becoming the first jury member.

CBS is calling this a “double eviction,” but it’s really just two evictions in one week. And there’s no word whether or not there will be a veto competition tomorrow or Saturday. We also don’t know if Julie Chen will stick around to work Saturday night’s eviction, or if producers will just put a Dustbuster on the couch in her place to see if we notice the difference.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
