Will this be Big Brother Neighborhood and Family Style?
CBS press release:

THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD,” A NEW REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES, PREMIERES SUNDAY, AUG. 9 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
In the Ultimate Social and Family Bonding Experiment, Eight Families in a Suburban Neighborhood Are Enclosed by a Massive 20-Foot Wall To Compete

for the Grand Prize of $250,000

Matt Rogers (“American Idol,” “Really Big Things”) Hosts

THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a new seven episode reality-competition series, premieres Sunday, Aug. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series features eight families in a suburban neighborhood who are enclosed by a massive 20-foot wall as they compete in family-friendly games for the grand prize of $250,000.

In what promises to be the ultimate social and family bonding experiment, this neighborhood will be cut off from the outside world as it becomes family vs. family in a competition to win upgrades for their lives and their homes. With virtually no electricity and no ability to text-message, watch television or surf the Internet, these families will be forced to reconnect and work together as a team. For the duration of the competition, the eight homes will be surrounded by the daunting wall with no way in or out. Each week, another family will be voted out of the game until one victorious group remains to claim the $250,000 grand prize.

The Haves & Have-Nots – An Interesting Theory

Thanks to our own member Alex336, who submitted this VERY interesting theory on the Have and Have-Nots twist CornerOffice introduced yesterday. You can find it in our forums but here’s his theory in a nutshell -

‘I’m not sure if any of you all have ever watched other countries’s versions of Big Brother, but almost each country has had–at some point in time–a season or two of “Heaven and Hell,” where the house is drastically divided between a “rich side” and a “poor side.” In this version, one side of the house is extravagant, and filled with luxuries… while the other is bare, uncomfortable, and hard to live in. In these Heaven or Hell seasons, houseguests must compete in a challenge to determine which side of the house they must live on for that week. This concept sounds exactly what “The Haves and Have-Nots” twist is aiming for.

I would bet large money that the old food challenge is being replaced by a challenge to determine which clique(s) get special rewards (“haves”) for that week… and which ones are left without. This may even play into the possible concept of them having to build the prize money as they go along.’

    Breaking Big Brother News!

    Many thanks to the BBQ for this breaking Big Brother News. According to a source:

    The theme for the house this year is “The Have and The Have-Not’s.” That’s all the info on that, but the source thinks you can get the general idea just from that.

    Now to the High School Theme that has been much talked about thus far:

    “Big Brother has cast people who they believe represent some typical high school stereotypes. However, it will not be Big Brother pairing them up. Once they enter the house, they will be told to form the cliques themselves – Big Brother will not force them together like Big Brother 9. In other words, Big Brother could have cast someone that they see as a Jock but the houseguests could decide that they are a “geek” instead.

    Once these cliques are formed, they will play as teams for a while, but they will eventually split off into individuals and play the Big Brother Game by themselves.”

    Media Release Day Theory

    I am wondering if CBS isn’t making sure that Julie Chen gets to do the first release of media day information, June 29 on The Early Show because in the wee hours this morning BSideBlog had posted that the “Media Blackout Ends June 29th at 6 AM PST” which would be 9AM EST when The…

    Former Big Brother Houseguests Rumored to Be On Big Brother 11

    Grain of salt time again Yakksters but a source of ours close to Real says that one of the two supposed “fan faves” in the Big Brother 11 House will be none other than my luscious bit of Muslim honey, Kaysar Ridha…….along with Sheila from Big Brother 9, they would join 12 new houseguests for the upcoming, sure to be exciting Big Brother 11 season!

    sheila_cbskaysar

    Now here’s the thing, we couldn’t confirm this information directly but based on our source’s information AND the fact that Sheila is desperatly looking for someone to watch her dog while she’s on “vacation” for 3 months, well it gave us enough pause to at least throw it out there.

    Big Brother 11 Houseguests Revealed on July 1st

    Thanks go out to our very own staffer SassyGal for this short snippet just posted in our forums (see post #29)!

    “bsideblog tweeted to bbupdates that the HG would be revealed on July 1″.
    Yes, a small snippet, but a pretty significant piece to the Big Brother 11 pre-season. And with the new rumors flying around, especially concerning “twists”, “cliques” and the possibility of former hg’s intermingling with these new ones it makes it all the more exciting!

    Shame on YOU Perez Hilton

    Thanks, BIG thanks go out to Tila Tequila via GlobalGrind.Com for this info and our very own Saint DaGame for bringing it to our attention.

    Okay, so here’s the deal and you can read it verbatim via the Global Grind link BUT in a nutshell, yesterday as the news broke of Michael Jackson being rushed to the hospital in cardiac arrest, Perez Hilton rushed to put out one of THE MOST tasteless and thoughtless blogs we’ve ever seen written on the ‘net.

    Another “Official” Big Brother Clue!

    Thank you to a confirmed source poster over at BBQ, another clue has emerged on the upcoming season of Big Brother!

    According to the source, “The 12 House Guests who haven’t been in the house before will be sequestered on Sunday”

    Yep, that’s it. That’s all we have for the moment. But this one sentence begs so many questions… Ok so does that just mean 12 strangers? Does that mean there is someone or more coming that HAVE been in the house before?
