    Here we are with another season, and some new info has been released. So let's start off the "Live feed" thread to start off the talk.

    This thread is for all Live feed / After Dark discussions and spoilers are fair game. As in the past, I'm sure we'll have individual episode threads that discuss the individual TV episodes.

    Julie released some info about the game here:
    http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/news/1002652/

    - "Most Twisted Season Ever"
    - Two houseguests win HoH each week
    - Winning HoH doesn't necessarily guarantee your safety
    - Some sort of interactive "Team America" element
    - A new "high stakes" competition called the Battle of the Block

    The house has also been revealed as a sort of treehouse, with each area themed as an element so we have Fire, Earth, Water, etc. There's a house tour video here:

    Sounds like they are introducing WAY too much. This game has always been more about the people than the game in a lot of respects. I'm not sure introducing all of these elements is going to make the game better. But we'll see. I was completely wrong about the coach season, which turned out much better than I imagined. Still, it will be in HD, so there's that going for it :)

    As mentioned in last thread does anyone have an update regarding the After Dark show? Checking tvgn.tv there is no mention of BBAD on that web site with only a week to go. Their guide now goes thru the opening day of BB too.

    Their HD channel is separate and almost no one has it, so does anyone know if it will be on the SD channel at all? What is the website for the HD channel, it has to be on that because of the press release, but where is that schedule?

    According to this, it first airs Fri June 27 at 1am. I don't see any indication that the HD channel is different than the SD one.

    OK thanks. Tivo's ought to have guide data now but AT&T cable does not have that channel. I wonder why they won't mention this under new shows on tvgn? They have stuff about new shows in July but not one next week, strange....

    I'm guessing that the Battle of the Block is deciding which HoH keeps their nominees and which one doesn't.

    :D I saw all the announcements and there isn't much else on TV to talk about yet so why not talk about what's coming?

    Looks like all new houseguests this year unless they add more as a twist. Should be entertaining.

    I know some people hate the twists but it really entertains me when they change things up just enough to make the game work a bit differently. Thus far, what I've heard sounds like it could do just that. I suspect it will be easier to understand than the announcements make it sound, like Survivor's Blood vs Water seemed confusing until watching it made it pretty simple.

    Looks like they got all the different types covered (yuppies/rockers/gay/nerds/airheads). I always feel bad for the two token black folks (always a guys and a girl) though. Seems they rarely make it past a few episodes. Mainly the black girls who go first when they start giving too much attitude or perceived attitude. I bet Jocasta is one of the first 5 to go.

    In his CBS interview with Jeff he said he has never been a beard person and has spent the last eight months growing it out. Sounds like a casting condition to me. Beard, camo, accent.

    This year's flamboyant gay guy is the brother of a major celebrity who I've never heard of. So, he'll win any America's Choice awards like Elissa did last year.

    Can't wait for the new season to start.

    BB is my annual summer guilty pleasure!

    I don't know if the intersection between Ariana Grande fans and Big Brother fans is all that big. I guess we'll find out. It would be unlike the BB producers to exploit that relationship as much as they could.

    Derrick has packed a lot into 30 years...

    He made sergeant when he was 20? After going to college on a baseball scholarship, getting a masters, and becoming an undercover cop? He's either very talented or a liar, which could work out well for him in this game.

    That might not even matter. The celeb tweets out that her bro is on BB and go to CBS.COM and vote for him. They never even have to watch.

    The CBS page also shows that he is a YouTube personality, that should help gain some votes.
