Fans of the CBS summer reality show, Big Brother, are gearing up for next week’s Big Brother 12 premiere. And while this season’s promos haven’t given away any big secrets just yet, CBS is finally releasing some information about the show.
In an interview with TV Grapevine, Big Brother executive producer Allison Grodner revealed that this season will be a Florida beach theme. The beach aspect is not at all groundbreaking, since the show is always kind of beachy and very summery, set in California in a house that always has a pool. Not even sure why the beach theme was worthy of a mention, but as I said the spoilers were coming out very slow this season .
Grodner also revealed that there will be a more diverse mix of backgrounds and personalities for Season 12. Does that mean fewer bikini baristas and more soccer moms? I’d still be surprised if the cast doesn’t consist of mostly single twentysomethings with great bods. After all, the show needs to encourage those all important hookups.
But the biggest revelation is the all-important major twist. In a CBS press release, it was revealed that this season will feature a secret saboteur who’s not in the house to win the game. His or her sole mission will be to cause turmoil for the other houseguests. And best of all, this secret agent will take his/her orders directly from the audience via online suggestions.
The saboteur will be revealed to fans during the first live show on July 15th. But the houseguests will remain in the dark as to the identity of the troublemaker.
As with most twists Big Brother, this probably sounds better on paper than it will actually play out. I can see one of the savvier houseguests figuring out who the plant is pretty darn quickly. Remember, these people have nothing do but to sit around all day and talk strategy and make alliances.
So with Big Brother12 just days away, now it’s time to start thinking of your sabotage suggestions for the saboteur. Once the game starts, you can submit your ideas to the Big Brother 12 producers here. And remember, play nice!
Big Brother 12 will premiere on July 8th at 8:00 PN ET/PT on CBS.
