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!

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!
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.
