Big Brother- different game i'm running! SIGN-UPS ARE CLOSED!

SIGN-UPS ARE NOW CLOSED!



Hello WTAWorldians ! I am running a game here on wtaworld which will be another fantasy game, its title: Big Brother. Many of you may have seen the show on tv, but if you haven't, here are the basic guidlines:

The Competitions:

HOH or Head of Household Competition:

-At the beginning of each week, i will hold a competition which will be called the Head of Household Competition. This competition will be held over the computer, and everyone will be able to compete EXCEPT last week's (the outgoing) head of household. These competitions can range anywhere from naming your favorite tennis player to seeing who can post the most on wtaworld. These competitions will try to be orginal, and hopefully lots of fun!


The duties of the HOH (Head of Household):

-They must nominate 2 people for eviction. He/She does so by pming me 2 names, which will be the names of the 2 nominees. The nominees are the people that will be up for eviction. Eviction is another word for "being voted out". The only 2 people who will have a chance of being evicted are the nominees. Everyone else is safe, atleast at the beginning of the week.
-They must partcipate in the Veto Competition (see below for explanation)
-They MAY NOT compete in the HOH competition the week after they win it
-They will NOT be able to vote for who they wanted evicted, and neither wil hte nominees (only the other houseguests).

The Veto Competition:

-Each week, after the 2 nominees have been chosen, we will have a veto competition. The winner of the competition will have the ability to save either of the 2 nominees (including him/herself) from eviction, or they may choose not to use it. These competitions will be held the day after the nominations, and the Veto Ceremony will be held the next day (here the veto holder will decide to use/not use the veto).
-Only 6 people may compete in the veto competition. They are: The HOH, the 2 nominees, and 1 person of each of their choosing (the hoh chooses 1 person, and the 2 nominees each choose 1 person).
-These are the only 6 people eligible to win the veto.



The Eviction

-Near the end of each week, we will have an eviction. In this eviction, every houseguest, except the HOH and the nominees, will vote for one of the nominees which they want evicted. This will be done by pm, and will be done after the veto competition and the veto ceromony.
-The player who is evicted will be immediately eliminated from the game.




Ok, that's about all the rules! Now all you have to do is:

-Post here saying you want to play
-Select a WTA Player you want to be for the game
-Wait until we have 14/16/18 players!

Once we have 14, 16, or 18 players (depending on the ammount of interest), the game will begin! If you want to join, just post your wta players name.


Please remember:
-This game will take a lot of participation and in many instences, a lot of time. Please do not sign up if you are only on once/twice a week. If you sign up, please try to get on regularly during the day and participate often.


Thanks a lot, and sign up quick!

Thomas

Hi! I"ll throw Venus into the mix :-)

I have CDO. It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, except in alphabetical order like it should be.

Oh, why not... Lindsay Davenport in

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
