CBS.com spoils next Big Brother twist

Big Brother 13‘s latest twist, to be unveiled during Thursday evening’s show, was spoiled when a poll accidentally went live on CBS.com after Wednesday’s episode.

Revive-a-Hamster is on! CBS already has Brendon gone! http://... on TwitpicThe poll, which was removed from the site, was captured by hamsterwatch and asks viewers to vote for one of the four evicted houseguests to return to the game.

It says that the person selected by viewers “will battle the next evicted HouseGuest for a chance to get back into the game!” The competition might be an interesting twist, even if this is an unsurprising turn of events. And while the sentence hedges a bit (“chance”), this would be the first time in a while that someone has been able to actually re-enter the game–not counting the returnees this year, of course.

Hilariously, or damningly, the poll shows Brendon as if he’s already been voted out, which, of course, he hasn’t been; we can also vote for Dominic, Cassi, or Keith. At least, we can vote when the poll goes live officially, after Thursday’s episode.
