A few editions going on around the world - firstly Big Brother Sweden returned yesterday - and it's merged with Big Brother Norway. Not to sure of the details, but it runs for 16 weeks with 9 HMs from Sweden and 9 from Norway all living under one roof. See: http://www.bigbrother.no or (if your Swedish is better!) http://www.bigbrother.se From the houseplan it looks very much as if the house will be split into two at some point. Also, Big Brother Brazil is in it's fifth series: http://bbb.globo.com It uses the same format as last year, a re-working of the US Head of House format. HMs compete for HoH - the HoH nominates one person to automatically face the eviction vote, with the other HMs voting to determine the second nominee. The public then vote for who should be evicted.
