CBS has just announced one of the “Big Brother 15″ twists for this season with even more details. Earlier this week we heard Julie Chen tell viewers America would have more influence than ever on the game. Now we know what that influence will be.
Starting June 20th, the audience will cast weekly votes online for the HG they think is playing the best game that week. The winner of the public vote will become the “Big Brother MVP” of the week and receive a special power which has yet to be defined.
With the voting starting tomorrow (Thursday) that means you’ll have to base your first round of voting on just the preseason interviews and initial impressions of who deserves your support. Our Big Brother 15 cast interviews will help you do just that.
Once the season gets rolling you’ll be able to vote based on gameplay and that’s where the “no floater summer” twist comes in to play.
“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies. With America rewarding good game play, it doesn’t pay to be a floater this summer,” said Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, Executive Producers of BIG BROTHER.
What do you think of production’s plan? It’s hard to say without knowing what the MVP position earns the HG and it’s also impossible to say viewers will vote for the best game play. We’ll be able to vote based on whatever criteria we want, but that’s okay.
I already know who I’ll be voting to support ahead of the Big Brother 15 premiere next week on June 26th and soon you’ll be able to as well. Get ready!
Get ready to meet the cast of Big Brother 15 very soon. We’re working to prepare our interview videos for you to enjoy and once CBS gives the green light I’ll be able to upload and share what I learned during my exciting visit with this season’s houseguests.
This year our interviews are shorter and quicker to the punch so no more 10+ minute lengthy segments. Instead we’ll get you in, let you meet the Big Brother 15 cast up close and personal, and then be ready to move on to the next one. Of course our videos will be completely free and share-able so we hope you’ll pass them around to your friends or add them to your own social media accounts and other Big Brother fan sites.
Thank you again to everyone who signed up for the Live Feeds to fund and support the trip. I think it will turn out to have been a great success and it’ll all be thanks to readers like you for signing up for your Feeds through our links and banners and visiting us each day to keep our Big Brother community here thriving.

Just a reminder, the Early Bird Live Feed sale expires in less than week so sign-up now before you have to pay more for the same thing once the season starts on June 26th!
As soon as I can tell you more you know I will. Stay close by and be the first to meet the Big Brother 15 HGs! Fun times ahead for our “100 Days of Summer!”
CBS has revealed the Big Brother 15 house in an interview with ET! Here are your pictures plus guided tour by none other than Julie Chen herself. The best part of Julie’s tour? She’s dropping hints and reveals all over the place.
Before we get to the hints, the BB15 house theme is a mid-century modern “Mad Men” inspired creation. It actually looks pretty awesome.
First up? The nomination chairs are missing! Julie explains this is part of the twist.
Then there’s the memory wall featuring, wait for it, 16 spots since the Big Brother 15 season starts early and runs longer this year.
Now back to that twist. Later in the tour Julie explains America’s role on BB15 will be much bigger this year because it will affect the nominations “every week.” Yikes! Well that’s no good.
“America’s role is so big this summer, that even before we start the game, America will be asked to do something and it will affect the nominations,” says Julie Chen on the Big Brother 15 twist.
And one last thing to leave us with, Julie says that this summer we’ll see “16 new houseguests.” We told you so six weeks ago, didn’t we? Yep. She does add there will be one familiar face, but since he/she will be a new HG that means it’s probably a crossover from another CBS show.’
What do you think of the new Big Brother 15 house and the latest twists and spoilers?
Big Brother 15 House tour video:
Update: Additional tour of the BB15 house with Julie Chen from THR.
The latest promo from CBS says “Big Brother is back with a twist so big, we’ll need your help to pull it off.” Oh but wait, there’s more. “You’ll impact the game like never before,” says the commercial featuring host Julie Chen.
So according to these new details the viewing public will get involved which means voting, which we’ve done before, so what makes it “like never before?” Another rumor floating around could possibly have the answer to that.
If true, this unsubstantiated rumor suggests Big Brother 15 viewers will vote weekly to empower one HG with the ability to… we don’t know. But letting the majority of viewers give power to the next HG-Jeff should go over great. I’d hope there’d be some sort of limitations there, but who knows what producers are planning or if this is even accurate.
Personally, I’d rather see the viewing public stick to voting for the next batch of silly food items rather than directly impacting the game much less doing so on a weekly basis. With that in mind I’m hoping the twist will work out differently, but we soon shall see.
What do you think the twist will be with these new details and would you want America voting with such great power for Big Brother?

Fans of “Big Brother 15″ should take note this season that unlike previous years, Real’s SuperPass service will not be providing the Live Feeds access for the 2013 summer series. Instead readers will be able to subscribe directly to the Big Brother Feeds from CBS via the sign-up page here.
We expect the change in hosts of the Live Feeds to have no impact on the actual viewing experience (ie. there will be no additional blackouts, etc. as CBS has always controlled those buttons), but there are some differences in the pricing, subscription methods, and international access this time around that you should know about.
Lower prices are now available for all subscription plan options. $23.99 will cover you for the entire season of Big Brother 15 if you sign up now. The season pass rate goes up to $26.99 on June 26th. A month-to-month rate is available for $9.99 once the season begins. With SuperPass out of the loop, CBS was able to lower the price and get the cost down to about a $0.25 a day or nearly one penny an hour. That’s silly cheap.
Next week will be an exciting one for Big Brother 15 as CBS prepares to release a flood of preseason details including a look at the new BB15 house, the reveal of the 2013 cast, and hopefully even more details on the “no-floater” twist announced by Julie Chen.
Earlier this week members of the press and those with special Big Brother relationships went inside the season 15 house for “Media Day.” There the stand-in HGs ran through an entire game of BB in just one day as both a test run of the new house, but also to set up the release of this year’s house design and theme.
