News on the Punishment Room
Rove Reveals Punishment Plan
In between Rove's usual banter and witty repartee on Tuesday night, Gretel Killeen managed to steal the show and let slip two major Big Brother 2006 secrets.
As BB fans, you've probably been itching to have more control over the housemates' fate, so in a rare and generous gesture, BB has answered your prayers. As revealed by Gretel, this year you will not only be able to vote for who you'd like to evict
from the BB house, you'll also be able to vote for who you'd like to stay
. This news is bound to have a massive impact on the 'sleepers' as Gretel calls them - the quiet housemates who stay under the radar by avoiding being the centre of attention. Sleeping might get the HMS through the night, but it won't get them through evictions!
Gretel's second revelation is news that this year's House will have a 'Punishment Room'. The room is no doubt designed for reprimanding the misbehaving HMs, but it's hard to say what cruel and unusual punishments BB has in store. The small, soundproof room, located behind the living area, has glass walls which allow HMs and viewers to see in, but leave the unfortunate inmate unable to see out.
With the HMs needing to fight for your love, attention, and votes more than ever before - it's inevitable that some of them are going to step on BB's toes this year and end up doing some time in the Punishment Room. Bring it on.
