Thursday Afternoon & The Truth About Big Brother Sequester by Howie Gordon

Since AGP likes to play cat and mouse with us on live show day, to make sure we tune in for the show, and we're the mouse, we decided not to play that game this season, and instead to rest up for the big night ahead, starting with the Live Show Viewing Party here on BBDish at 4:45pm BBT/7:45pm Eastern.

Fear not!! Everyone with football pre-emptions - we will be posting the link you need to watch the Big Brother live show LIVE... in the Viewing Party Post, which will go live at 7:45pm Eastern... a few minutes earlier than usual.

It will be a big night, as well as a very eventful day tomorrow on the live feeds. Traditionally, the final four are treated to a luxury comp on the Friday following this live show, and traditionally it gets "leaked" either in total or in large part to the live feeds.

Sometimes it's a fun physical comp where the prize is clothing, and sometimes it's a long form comp that I like to call The Backyard Invasion, wherein BB places a number of strange people and objects in the backyard and the HGs have to figure out a riddle... The winner gets a prize.

Sometimes it starts Friday morning, and then sometimes it starts Thursday night at the end of the live show, as it did with the Sumo wrestler in BB10, and then carried on to the feeds... At the moment, I'm so braindead and befuddled from the season, I could be mixing a comp or two, but the timing is right on.

Anyhow, if for whatever reason you've held off on getting the feeds this season, now would be a great time to go ahead and gettem. In addition to the 3 Day Free Trial, they're also offering a very limited time price of 9.99/month - but that ends September 3rd! So now is the time & here is the link. And you'll be able to access all the craziness you've missed all season via the flashback feature too. :0)

Anyway, onto the real reason for this post... We've all heard about what the rules for sequester, and we know what's supposed to happen in there, but most of us have never actually heard the truth of what does happen in there. Howie's come to change all that! ;)

Take it away, Howie!

by Howie Gordon

If an HG is evicted in the first 5 weeks or so, then he or she talks to Julie and then goes home until FINALE Night. But... if someone is LUCKY enough to be one of the FINAL 7 Evictees, then he or she is going to be on a possibly a 5 week vacation.

Yes, any normal person would rather be in the house, on tv, still in the game, and in the hunt for half a million dollars. But the next BEST thing is partying it up in the Jury House.

A Jury member has no shot at the money, but he or she can still decide who wins BB!

When Dr. Will arrived at the BB7 Jury House, he was pushing hard for Boogie and Chilltown. James tried selling me on Ivette at the BB6 Jury House.

We went to Napa Valley, CA for the BB6 Jury House. This place was built on a lake wedged into the side of a mountain. The House was spacious. And there were 3 homes on the property with 2-pools and a hot tub. A lot of our time was spent playing volleyball on the sand court. Some of us went fishing, boating and hunted Crawfish and frogs.

The producers don’t want us talking about the show, but how can one not after spending 69 (in my case) straight days in the BB House with nothing else. So the HGs talk about the game, until the Producers step in to direct our conversations elsewhere. But... you can’t be watched 24/7! Hint hint!!!

There are organized days, for example, when an evicted HG shows up and they need footage, but for the most part, a Jury Member is on vacation having fun.

In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - in the BB7 Jury House - we had an Infinity Pool at a Mansion on the Beach.

A chef cooked us Lobster and Filets for Lunch and Dinner everyday.

For breakfast, we just did our own thing, but the producers go shopping for you, and you can pretty much have ANYTHING (within reason) that you want.

I stuffed my face with candy, Rice Krispie Treats, cereals, bagels, donuts and you NAME it. To burn it all off I would play football on the beach or make coconut juice (climbing palm trees) with James.

What is allowed?

A HG pretty much has to stay on the Jury House property, unless they are escorted by a producer or handler. A HG can pretty much do anything he or she wants. Except, no TV, radio or Internet (same as being in the BB House). The Jury House exists to keep an HG isolated, so there are not any biased opinions for the FINALE Show vote.


No leaving the Jury House without a producer. People will recognize an HG no matter where they go, as BB Fans are everywhere. To protect the integrity of the game, the Jury Members are watched as much as possible. So movies at night are the common pleasure.

Does everyone follow the rules?

Do 15 year olds take out their parents cars without permission? Does a 17 year old sneak his girlfriend into the basement? Well... the same applies in the BB Jury House. If people want to talk about the game, then they are gonna talk about the game! If someone wants to go for a stroll, then so be it. But what happens in the Jury House, Stays in the Jury House! LOL!

Enjoy Tonight!

P.S. Go Brigade!

P.P.S. I talked with James BB6/BB7 All-Stars yesterday. He wants Britney to win, because she is such a b*tch... and he hates Hayden’s hair.

I got got by Carolyn's new top post (Caro you got me again) so I will post my question here because it fits in so well with Howie's blog.

Inquiring minds want to know!

Hi sweet Carolyn and Dishers,

I haven't been on much, and barely even read the updates. I am so not interested in this show anymore and watching the edited version on TV is like a joke. When will America ever see the real nasty part of Ragan and Britney... they are obsessed with players that are no longer there and keep hitting below the belt. I don't care who wins... I just would like Ragan and Britney gone. Brit may stay around til the final HoH though.

This is the first night I am not watching the real time show going down... heading out for a RAW dinner with a friend from Moonves' office.

Oooops. Totally forgot. I love the blogs by Howie... who should be focusing on Earl right now. ;-)

This was reported by Reality Blurred at the time...

"The Big Brother 7 house may be empty except for an asshat and his mostly willing accomplice, but there was drama recently with the other houseguests. Specifically, it turns out that the sequestered jury is not really all that sequestered.

The CBS affiliate in Palm Springs reports that members of the jury were spotted “at a restaurant-bar in Indio, singing karaoke, playing some golf, and … drinking.” The jury is now in California having left Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, because of Hurricane John. Robert Castanata, identified by CBS 2 as a “restaurant manager,” said that the producer was

“pretty much was a little upset that they were running around and carrying on the way they were. They were having a good time. It was like kids that had gone out that had been locked up for a long time and they were just going crazy. They were having a fun time, they were getting up singing together, and he kind of caught wind of it and came in, dragged them out and said, ‘Let’s go, we gotta get out of here, because you’re not supposed to be out.’”

The station showed two photographs that clearly show Will and Danielle at a bar. Of course, contact with the outside world is the biggest no-no ever; houseguests can never leave the house or have contact with the outside world, unless they’re helping CBS promote one of its sit-coms. It’s likely they’re allowed to leave the sequester house to eat and, apparently, play golf, but are kept under the supervision of a producer—who, if the restaurant manager is to be believed, pretty much sucks at his job."

Those pesky little HGs. LMAO!

Thanks for the great info Howie!!

What about the people from early in the season like Annie and Monet who were also sequestered for possible future use?

Do they get similar treatment at the Jury House??

Howie? You are the bombdiggedy! Thank you for all your time and input here this season.

Has anyone ever told you what a craft you have for writing?

You either have it or you don't.

You have it.

Howie, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

You said just all the things I scream at my monitor about when they say they can't talk game in the house. That's like saying you can't find a Jack Shack anywhere you go.

I can't find it but I still love the pic of you coming out of it with that $**t Eating Grin on your face. I wonder if you ever saw it.

You didn't mention the escaping to the night clubs in the BB7 Sequester. That did happen right, and you were right in the middle of it. You can't tell us you kept your Howie Halo on for something like that.

I know you are still around for a few more blogs, but in case I miss any I want to say thank you for the great job this year. Carolyn is very persuasive isn't she. I bet all she had to do was shake her boooooobies and you were hooked. HA!

I have been pulling for all the BRIGADE members since the first day of their alliance. People who think this season has been boring must not be pulling for them, because they have dominated the game. They have controlled opinions, which controls the game. It took 4 guys to do the same thing Dr. Will did when he played. Dr. Will's charm was the power of all the Brigade members. Each one with their own unique 1/4 power.

For me, I'm completely satisfied with the outcome no matter what. Britney has played a solid competition game, the rest have kept to their alliances, and made smart decisions.

Let's go BRIGADE!
