Big Brother 3 contestants who even look at banner planes may be expelled; alcohol rationed, other changes planned.
In an effort to stop outside information from getting to the contestants via planes towing banners with messages from audience members, producer Arnold Shapiro says that Big Brother 3 contestants who even look up at the planes may be expelled from the house. The show will use plane-spotters who will radio to the house when a plane is spotted, and the house guests will be sent inside. Shapiro also said that this year there will be “a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to violence”, which he claims was also in effect last year. Other changes to the show: alcohol will be rationed and challenges for food and immunity will be “more competitive.” Once again, the live feeds–except, probably, when the producers decide to cut them as they did frequently last year–will be available for a fee. The contestants will be revealed this Friday (Shapiro tells Zap2it.com “they’re like hungry dogs just waiting to be released from their cages before the contest begins”) and enter the house Saturday. The show debuts next Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
