Houseguest candidates sequestered tomorrow; CBS plans lots of interactivity

The candidates for Big Brother 7 will be sequestered starting tomorrow, reality blurred has learned. All 20 will not know the results of America’s vote until they’re told by Julie Chen to enter the house, but it’s unclear if that will happen live next Thursday when the show airs, or beforehand, as is usually the case.

Meanwhile, in advance of next week’s premiere, CBS has unveiled a whole bunch of new ways to keep up with every backstab and all the manipulation. For starters, every episode will be available online for free the day after it airs. And, of course, there are the live feeds, available with Real’s SuperPass, which has a 14 day free trial and otherwise costs $14.99 per month.

But this year, for the first time, you won’t have to sit in front of your computer to monitor the hamsters’ every move. Subscribers to the “Big Brother Mobile Pack” will receive “video clips, photos, live breaking house alerts and daily insider summaries on their cell phones.” Thus, there is no longer any excuse for not knowing what’s going on inside the house 24 hours a day, seven days a week–unless, of course, you actually want to have a life for the next three months.
