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.
“I have no idea what’s normally in S’mores that wouldn’t already be vegan so that could turn out weird.” Neither chocolate nor marshmallows are vegan, probably won’t be anything weird about this one either
Hah, well there you go. I’m clearly not a vegan and hadn’t a clue. I was thinking vegetarian, but obviously not the same thing (at least that much I know).
I dunno, I’m guessing Vegan S’mores will be something weird if it involves neither chocolate or marshmallows.
I wonder if Vegan S’mores would wind up just being graham crackers. That would be such a let down for me if I was a houseguest, lol.
I don’t think anybody has to worry, the “Wurst BLT” is leading 60/40.
Regular marshmallows have gelatin in them which mean vegetarians can’t eat as well. Vegan marshmallows are made with other things but I believe it’s the same as vegan cheese they don’t melt. I’ve looked up the ingredients for vegan chocolate since I never had it before and they say it’s made with: vegan chocolate is made with organic cocoa beans, soy lecithin, and dehydrated cane juice with Stevia.
I voted for the “Wusrt BLT”. I tried to google it see what it was. Pictures I saw look pretty apetizing. There must be a twist to that.
It’s funny because you can vote as often as you want. There could be a limit, but I haven’t found it, gave up before getting there.
Hey guys, I’m from Brazil. There’s any chance for me to sign the live feeds? Thanks.
Unfortunately, the live feeds are exclusive for Canadian and US viewers. There are, however, non-legal streams for international fans (which I don’t recommend to anyone living stateside).
Thats sad.. But thanks, James!
You’re welome. By the way, we have a housemate from Brazil taking part in our BB here in the Philippines.
Seriously? What’s his name? Thats nice!!
