Suggestions for BB 14
« on: September 08, 2011, 08:17:24 PM »
I'd like to see some changes made that the Australian version had that it seems the US doesn't but then again this is my first year watching it

Everyone should nominate and give a valid reason as to why they chose that HG
Public should decide who gets voted out
More social interaction and less about "playing the game" but then again i'm not watching Up Late so that could be covered that

What changes would you guys/gals like to see

Oh and if this group was in the Australian one Rachel would of been out first :)
And Dominic would still be in

I would not vote Rachel out. But I like your concept!!! I think if I could change something it would be two eliminations a week so it doesn't drag on

I'd eliminate the DE.  Just not fair to anyone.  I'd also stretch out the comps.  After HOH give it more than 24 hrs. to nominate someone.  Seems like the comps are all done in very quick succession -- then everyone sits around for days!!

How about BB narrows the list of possibilities to 100 and then gives the fans a chance to select at least half the hgs  :tup:

I am sorry but I can't see a point to the game if this happens.

That's how it was done here with evictions

3 HG would be nominated then the public would call a 1 900 number and select which HG they would evict
Then at the eviction show on Sunday the person with the most amount of calls would leave

Oh and to add something to my last post when the HG would arrive at the studio as the house was like a 5 minute drive and it would go to a commercial break after the HG was evicted there was a live studio audience and the yells and screams was like the HG's were rock stars

Oh looks like Australia will have  BB next year

Two suggestions:

1.  All new players -- no returning ones.  The returning ones have an unfair advantage.  Or if you have to have returning players, pick those who are good at the game and not just good for drama.

2.  Let us choose some of the houseguests.

A "Swap Card" Competition at the Jury House held in the third week of Jury (can't mess with the F4). The winner of the "Swap Card" gets to swap places with someone in the BB house! It could be "Swap Card" holder's choice or pick a name out of a bag!!!  :wohoo:

To encourage houseguests to compete, have a points system where a houseguest gains points for every competition won. 

5 points for HOH, 5 points for POV, 3 points for have/have not, 2 points for coming in second in HOH or POV. 

Where points would apply is if the houseguests are in a competition and it comes down to a tie-breaker question. 

Instead of answering a question where the answer is a number, the houseguest with the most points could choose a tie-breaker game. 

It could be something that houseguest is good at, like throwing darts (I don't think they have a dartboard in the BB house).

Or free throws at a basketball net (they had a basketball net in BB2, they could bring it back).

Or a quick hand of blackjack where the houseguest with the most points gets to be dealer and in blackjack, tie goes to the dealer.

Or a quick game of 3 ball on the pooltable where the person with the most points gets to break.

Or a trivia question where the person with the most points gets to pick the category.

Or some other game I haven't thought of.

For those of you who say that having the public vote out houseguests is a bad idea - remember the absolute first season of the show? Yeah. America voted people out. So it's plausible.

My suggestions:
  • Do not bring anyone back. That concept got stale in an instant.
  • On another level, have them be complete strangers. I feel as though seasons work better when alliances aren't formed from people who know each other.
  • Speaking of not knowing each other, stop casting people who know past houseguests.
  • And while you're at it, stop casting based on looks. Get some people who are everyday Joes.
  • Stop with Pandora's Box. It was fun the first time you yanked it out, but it gets old quick when Jessie keeps showing up in it.
  • No duos, regardless of the voting process. Let everyone play as individuals.
  • And yeah, I agree with spreading the HOH ceremony/Veto/Veto ceremony out a few days.

Really? I enjoy Pandora's box. But they need to be more creative. I liked the one when the guy got his hand stuck in a hole, while he watched everyone else get money.
 
I had one. Let's say Joe was just evicted, and Bob's HOH. Bob opens Pandora's box and is locked inside until the eviction show. Joe returns to take Bob's place only for that week. Joe then leaves at the eviction show along with the eliminated houseguest.

Here's an idea for pandora's box.  The HOH opens it, wins 5G.  Then the most recently evicted HG returns and claims the title omnipotent HOH.  This HOH then places all the HGs on the block.  There is no POV, and the HGs are told the only way they can get themselves off the block is to try and bribe the HOH with a prize they have won, like a trip or money.  In the end it is all a farce, no one is evicted.  It is just an opportunity for the most recently evicted HG to try and scam some prizes from the remaining HGs.

Maybe a brief history lesson is in order.

The first season of the US version followed the international model, where the HGs all were involved in nominations, and the public voted on evictions.  It failed miserably with the US audience.
Shapiro and Grodner were brought in by CBS to create a concept for BB that would fly in the US market.  That's where the HOH originated; the veto came along later. Early seasons also had the HGs competing for luxuries and for their food for the week. The new model was first used in 2001; and because of 9/11 the final houseguests in the house (Dr. Will and Nicole) didn't leave until the very end of September. And the houseguests were told about the 9/11 attacks, and given access to a TV, the third remaining houseguest, Monica, had a relative woo worked in the WTC and was among those who were never found.

So I doubt you will ever the international format used in the US versions. I understand that the US version does borrow other features from the international format, and other countries have borrowed from the US version.

And to add to this - if houseguests didn't win food, they would have to eat PB&J sandwiches. I don't know when the slop came into play.

I don't know if they ever did this on BB US - but on the Portuguese BB the houseguests had a certain amount of money that they used to do all the shopping - they made their own shopping list for the week. They had to earn that money by doing certain tasks and the amout of money they had depended on their performance on those tasks.

The one thing i would like to see above all  is the viewer puts 2 up on the block.  For me i would rather see everyone getting along....stop the backstabbing....and the throwing under the bus...if the viewer picks the nominee's and the houseguest want to stay in the game then they might need to have an attitude adjustment.  To me it takes a different approach to going up on the block...stops the alliances for power, the houseguest are forced to play for theirselves they still can try to lock in votes to stay in the house....( still play for HOH and still for Veto just HOH at the point of a Veto used can pick the houseguest to replace)  would give new meaning to HOH instead of Kiss my Butt or who they like or dislike as who plays the game.   As you are all reading this you know as well as i do some houseguest let power go to their heads, are annoying, or fly under the radar.  This way they have to play fair and most definately together  or bye bye shocked to see who America puts up on the block
Should be a way to make this work.

second they dont have to reveal what they do! that would definitely be a plus in deception to the HG's. :snicker:

I love the idea of America doing the nominations! The HG's would be shocked to find out what we really think about them! You could also take the 3rd highest voted HG and make them the secret replacement nom if the Veto was used. Nobody would know who's going up next  :snicker:  The HOH could be the only way to fight for your safety and they should get luxury prizes through HOH only. No HOH = no cruise, cash or big screen TV!

I love this idea!!! I think America should be the ones to choose Nominees for who goes on the block, they should then in turn have to be have nots, ie...eat slop, cold showers, sleep in the have not room...no luxuries at all...then have a Veto comp...if one wins then they can save themselves, the one with the next most votes goes up, and then evictions. No HOH at all!!!! I think then we would not have to worry about FLOATERS, cause everyone would have to work their butts off to stay in the game!!!  :yess:

Slop came into play during Season 7 - All Stars.   Before that it was PB&J.  Season 6 was the first season with the current house.  Before that the HOH room was tiny, small!

I've been revisiting previous seasons of BB.  I did not like Season 1 for various reasons, and think all of the changes have been for the better.  I don't want to vote on the houseguests or who to nominate.  I've started to dislike American Idol for that very reason, because its a popularity contest and not a skills contest necessarily. 

The reality is that BB still kills it in ratings during the summer so I don't think they'll be changing anything anytime soon.

I would love to see the challenges mixed up a lot more.  I don't like that the houseguests can predict the competitions.  I think they could use some more originality in that respect.   

I also think that production should stay out of the mix as much as possible.  Quit planting ideas, quit giving hints.   

Retire OTEV.   Seriously.   

And, I like the magician idea, but I think a pyschic would be better.  Can you imagine what that person would know ahead of time?   Heeheehee . . . .   that might really screw with the houseguests.

Having the audience elect the nominations for eviction should be used sparingly, no more than once a season.  Perhaps in the middle of the season if production thinks that too many popular HGs are getting evicted they could have an America's vote to allow the audience to nominate some floaters.  It would have been great to use this in BB6 and send a member of the nerd herd packing. 

In order for this to occur, Pandora's Box would be involved.  The HOH opens the box, wins a prize, but then loses the power to nominate.  The nominations then become America's choice.

Only problem with it being a pandora's box it would have to be incredible prize for it to be opened and the first year it might work, but after that h/g would pass on it to do their own thing.

I like the idea of America nom's because it actually would create a house full of people that would be more of a social game and not cut throat....everyone would have the oppurtunity to be theirselves with 12 or 13 people  and get to know each other better.  The one thing i hate about American Idol is their voting ...because their is no limit on how many calls but a time limit.   If BB  did the show with Amer.Noms they would open their phones and CBS for a small window of time, and just like they did for America's fav. player 10 votes maxed either phone or website, but make it 3 or 5 votes... or even just 1 vote (even better)it would still make it a better social game among the players.  just saying  :tup:

Another thing they could change is allowing the HOH break ties.  I know on Survivor that there is a revote but since there are only 2 noms anyway, why not pull things from a bag.  Black ball goes home.  It would probably make people play harder at getting votes.   :duno:

Don't bring any returning players unless all 14 are returning! It is strictly unfair to have newbies/returning players period. I would love to see a season of 14 new house guest come onto the scene to be given a fair chance. I would not mind an all-star season keep in mind that Season 7 was all-stars maybe they will do another one from season 14.

I love the idea of America being HOH for a few weeks. LOL

If Season 14 is an all-star season I want to see : Dan Gheesling, Chima, Will Kirby, Daniele Donato, Janelle, Russell, Marcellus and others return.

     I dont think they should let America vote because there not in the house and they know all thats going on because the viewing of the diary room where the truth is always told.  That would get rid of the stradegy and everybody the backstabbing which is the best part. 
     I think they should do another All Stars that was definitly the best season in Big Brother history, and now that there has been more seasons there is more all stars.  And right away I would think like the begining seasons players and the later seasons players would be against each other. 
     But if Will and Boogie arent on there then might as well not do an all stars because they are what make the show.  They are what got the show popular.
