Big Brother gave the Houseguests a fun surprise this afternoon on the Live Feeds when Victor emerged from the Diary Room and shouted “I got an announcement from Big Brother!” Feeds cut and were out for several minutes before returning to very excited Houseguests.
When things returned the HGs were talking excitedly about a special visitor and performance coming up just for them in the backyard along with more fun to go with the concert.
Yes, it’s Ziggy Marley paying a visit to the Houseguests with a country fair setting that will apparently have prizes which must be competitions of some sort but maybe it’s just carnival games for them without any versus challenges. No, I haven’t a clue as to why this is happening.
However it’s playing out this explains why the backyard was on lockdown all day but we don’t know what if anything this has to do with Friday’s mysterious special BB18 episode. I’m really not convinced they could do a whole hour of a concert as it’d feel really out of place for a Big Brother show, but maybe they could balance it out with those carnival games mentioned earlier.
It’s entirely possible this has nothing to do with the Friday show. Someone will most likely be gone and it’d be entirely out of sequence to show the evicted HGs there. Of course Big Brother has digitally (and impressively) completely removed someone from a segment before so it’s possible, but it’d be weird.
This wouldn’t be the first time a singer has dropped by the backyard for a private performance. Sheryl Crow came to the old Big Brother house on BB3 way back in 2002 and gave the HGs quite the show. I’m scratching my head on if any other singers have been there though other celebrities have visited.
Feeds cut around 4:55 PM BBT for the concert and we don’t know how long it’ll be going on but I’d expect the downtime to last a few hours. We’ll watch for HGs’ reactions when things are back.
Update: Feeds returned just before 8PM BBT. The HGs picked numbers in a carnival game and Have-Nots for next week were decided. Doesn’t sound like it’ll impact the game other than foodwise. Have-Nots were allowed to eat during the party.
