Whilst in theory it's a good idea to get rid of the blandest in reality all that does is make for bland evictions viewers don't really care about and a house that doesn't see much change, if any, in dynamics, with each eviction.The three up for eviction would be those closest to zero as they are the blandest.
The key here is that people ARE still wishing for it - and saying so on social media.People who are wishing for a full suite of Big Brother spin off shows like Friday night live, up-late, etc need to realize that these days most of us are a lot more busier than back in the channel ten era and do not have the time to commit. Think SUV driving soccer moms who need to take their three little angels to their three extra curricular activities as well as work full time and clean the house all while maintaining their own social life.
The Ch10 daily shows were "pre-recorded". That's what a daily show is, a recap of the previous days events.Sunday = live eviction with housemates voting each other out.
I was thinking a very similar format but have the HOH choose three people to put up, this way it doesn't get too complicated. The public then vote to save. The housemates then choose to evict from the remaining two. But i don't know if HOH choosing three people would be to much.Personally for Australia I'd go with a hybrid format slightly different to the Brazilian one where the HoH nominates two people, the viewers choose a third nominee. The Veto then plays out and then the viewers save one of the final three nominees, with the housemates then voting from the remaining two who goes. That IMO gives you the best of both worlds.
Ahh ok never watched bb08. Was trying to run the best scenario I could think based on what we have heard for next year. And I was thinking the blandest purely because the two years we rate often rate the lowest, 2002 and 2014, had very bland people win those years rather than bigger characters so I guess I was just wanting to avoid that somehow, but totally get what you are saying.They did that at the beginning of BB08 with the audience choosing the three nominees and it just didn't work as it took the drama of nominations out of the house.
Nominations and evictions are the core element of Big Brother and they need to play out on the show, so it doesn't matter too much if the nominees are as a result of one person or the whole house choosing them, and indeed viewers can be part of that process too - occassionally in the US viewers would choose a 3rd nominee, which is the route I'd go down with Australia.
