In the first episode of BB10, Memphis won a sweet 1969 Camaro in a car-pulling contest (don't ask). Small problem -- "Big Brother" couldn't give the car away because the show didn't own it. We're told someone else actually held the title. In fact, the car had already been returned to the owner almost immediately after the contest.

Memphis the Mixologist was none the wiser because no one told him about the snag while he was inside the house. But on Tuesday, Memphis gained his freedom, losing to Dan, and learned the car he had come to treasure wasn't really his. Another problem -- the car has been repainted since it was on the show.

We're told producers are now scrambling to buy the car from the real owner. Sources say the real owner will turn the keys over for $24,000. A '69 Camaro online sell for anywhere between 7 and as much as 80 grand. Fact is, Big Bro doesn't have a lot of bargaining power, so they are more SOL than HOH.

We made several calls to "Big Brother" -- so far, no comment.

ha ha ha  it's funny but a fixable issue

the only thing i don't like about  that is April  is most likely getting off hearing about that!! (:;)

 Big Brother can go to any car show  and there are tons of them out there and they can get  a lot nicer  Camaro, one that's already restored in and out for alot  less than what it seems they may have to shell out to this guy..

 i'm sure the nit wit that made that  deal on behalf of BB is  more than out of a job!!!

puddin:
Wow, and I think some of the jury "might" have based their final vote on the fact that Memphis had won the 50,000 no 60,000 no or was that 100,000 $ car?

furzball:
That is outrageous!!!

Steven and Brian did a live chat not long ago for RP. Steven said that the car is a POS.
After the comp----he said that he, Brian, and Memphis wanted to check out the engine.
BB wouldn't let them crack the hood, and he thought that the car didn't have an engine.
