Big Brother 16 Reveals First Feeds-Only Vote| July 1, 2014 at 11:15 AM EDT
Brand new for Big Brother 16 is a Live Feeds subscriber-only voting system that will let those dedicated fans impact the game every week this season. The first voting round has opened, but it won’t last long so open up your Feeds or grab the Free Trial and cast your vote now!
In the preseason we were teased with news that Big Brother fans who were subscribed to the Feeds would have access to an exclusive voting system separate from what’s seen every season as part of CBS.com’s open offerings to fans. Considering online fans are often more invested and naturally more informed than TV-only viewers who only get part of the story, I was anxious to learn more about what sort of impact we could have.
The teaser details hinted at a question on asking Feedsters which HG they wanted to do everyone’s laundry that day, but the first real voted turned out to be Have-Not foods.
We get to pick between giving the Have-Nots either “Vegan S’mores” or “The ‘Wurst BLT”. I’m guessing that’s a liverwurst sandwich but
I have no idea what’s normally in S’mores that wouldn’t already be vegan so that could turn out weird. Update: Reader “Ktan” explained to me that neither chocolate nor marshmallows are vegan (I was thinking vegetarian).
This vote is pretty neat since the Have-Not food is typically an open viewer poll, which I guess is being covered by Team America content right now. Speaking of Team America, did you know Joey spilled the Team America beans yesterday in an attempt to garner votes? Anyways, it’d be awesome if Feedsters got to control that third and final vote for a Team America member. We might see a much different result from a more constrained voter based. That probably won’t happen though.
What kind of votes and choices would you like to see happen in this season’s Feeds-Only voting? Make your suggestions in the Comments section below. I have a feeling Big Brother is watching for your ideas so don’t hold back.
The voting closes today (Tuesday) at 4PM PT / 7PM ET so do not delay. Just log in to your Feeds subscription and then click the tabs on the right hand side for “Vote.” If you don’t have Feeds yet then you can join right now using the Free Trial to cast your vote.
