    It was assault. Intentional physical contact (via violent sound waves) intended to harass, create emotional distress, and threaten further physical harm.

    I agree. And since we know very little what is in Big Brother's black Book of HG rules, we don't know what level of physical contact is permitted or what HGs are expected to do if they feel another HGs has cross a line. Example, sex and sexual contact is clearly permitted, but we can assume that unwanted sexual advances are not tolerated.

    to me throwing any food\drink into someone face in anger or as game tactic is an assault. Clearly BB worked out that matter behind the scenes. I am guessing both individuals felt mutually responsible and were OK with how its been resolved. The fact that Josh was crying about Jason eviction suggest they weren't hold grudges over what had happened in the past.

    Yes, in a context where he didn't do it out of the blue.

    sweet home, al
    here's a link to a recent hg contract i've linked before (i'm sure it's been revised since):

    Big Brother contract: the legal agreement houseguests sign

    and a list of "known" house rules from a fan forum someone put together (believe these at your own risk, but most sound legit):

    Big Brother House Rules

    1. There is no direct contact with the outside world.
    ● Big Brother never discusses anything that has happened in the outside world.
    ● Big Brother never enters into any negotiations about how certain actions, conversations or events that may have occurred in the house will be shown on the television.
    ● Housemates are not permitted to make any attempts to communicate personal messages with members of the outside world by means of written messages, symbols or personalised clothing.
    ● If any objects appear in the garden Housemates must not touch or inspect them unless instructed to do so.
    ● If people appear in the garden Housemates MUST NOT communicate with them.
    ● In the event of any of these events occurring Housemates must make their way immediately inside and close the doors, even if not specifically asked to do so.

    2. Housemates are filmed 24 hours a day and must wear personal microphones at all times.
    ● Big Brother will not broadcast images from the toilet on the television or internet unless it is being used for purposes other than those for which it was designed. For example, images of two people talking in the toilet may be broadcast.
    ● It is strictly against the Rules to interfere for any reason with the camera or sound equipment installed in the House and garden or to do anything which may hinder the working of the equipment in any way.
    ● It is against the rules to try and locate and/or acknowledge cameras through the mirrors. It is also against the rules to discuss camera positions.
    ● Nothing must be placed in front of mirrors to impede camera coverage. Housemates are forbidden to move vases and bowls and any other decorative items.
    ● No furniture can be moved from one part of the house to another.
    ● Housemates are forbidden to hang towels anywhere in the House except on the heated towel rails in the bathroom.
    ● It is compulsory to wear a personal microphone at all times except when sleeping, showering or taking part in any activity in which the microphone may be damaged.


    3. The Diary Room is the only place in the house where Big Brother will acknowledge housemates. Visits to the Diary Room are a vital part of the Big Brother experience and are, therefore, compulsory.
    ● Housemates are welcome to enter the Diary Room at any time of the day or night.
    ● The Diary Room is the only place in the House that Big Brother acknowledges what Housemates say.
    ● Housemates may not wear sunglasses or hats in the Diary Room.
    ● The Diary Room can only be entered if there is no-one in the room. It is electronically locked at all other times. It will also be locked while Housemates are in the room.
    ● Big Brother can call individual Housemates to the Diary Room at any time. Housemates must come when called, failure to do so or responding in an offensive manner to Big Brother may result in disqualification and early eviction.
    ● It is compulsory for Housemates to enter the Diary Room to make their nominations.
    ● Big Brother is the only person who communicates with the Housemates. On occasion, Big Brother may not answer questions immediately but will always eventually return an answer. Big Brother will not answer personal questions.
    ● If a Housemate decides to leave voluntarily, they must explain their reasons why in the Diary Room.
    ● Any questions asked by Big Brother in the Diary Room cannot be divulged to other Housemates.
    ● Occasionally Housemates may need minor medical treatment. On these occasions professionals will usually treat them in the Diary Room. It is prohibited to try and seek information about the outside world from these professionals.
    ● If a Housemate is having a consultation with the counsellor or psychologist (either at their request or at the suggestion of Big Brother) then this conversation will be confidential. It will not be recorded and members of the production team will not be able to hear or see the consultation.

    4. Each week, Housemates are required to go to the Diary Room and nominate two people for potential eviction.
    ● Housemates must give frank and honest reasons for their nominations.
    ● If any Housemate is deemed to be holding back a valid reason for nominating a fellow Housemate, a formal warning may be issued.
    ● Housemates are not allowed to nominate themselves or any inanimate objects.

    5. Housemates are not permitted to discuss nominations with any other Housemates.

    This includes:
    ● Any discussion with another Housemate that could be interpreted as a deliberate attempt to influence their nominations.
    ● Predicting or guessing who may be nominated or evicted.
    ● Discussing the reasons Housemates might use for nominating.
    ● Discussing the type of person Housemates are thinking of nominating.
    ● Writing down or using materials at Housemates disposal to form names, initials or other symbols. For this reason the use of pens, pencils or any written communication is strictly against the rules.
    ● Communicating in code or languages other than English and/or devising other methods of communication.

    Housemates are, of course, free to talk about how they feel about the other Housemates. Their good and bad points may be discussed with others but NOT as part of a discussion about nominations.

    6. Housemates may not intimidate, threaten or act violently towards any other Housemate.

    Big Brother has the right to evict Housemates without warning if their behaviour is deemed to warrant it.

    7. Housemates may not communicate in code and/or foreign or sign languages.
    ● Housemates are forbidden to write anything using any material or surface in the House eg steam on glass.
    ● On the occasion Housemates are provided with a writing implement it is forbidden for this implement to be used for anything other than the express purpose for which it is provided.
    ● Housemates must speak in English at all times.

    8. All tasks, unless otherwise stated, are compulsory.
    ● The supply of food and other household goods is generally dependant on Housemates' performance in compulsory weekly tasks.
    ● Succeeding in the task results in a substantial shopping budget, failing the task means Housemates may have to live on "staples". Staple foodstuffs are supplied by Big Brother and provide enough calories and the appropriate balance of nutrients from all the major food groups for each Housemate for the week. Big Brother retains the right to change the rules of any task at any stage.
    ● In addition to the weekly tasks Big Brother may also set other challenges.
    ● If a task is deemed compulsory, any Housemate refusing to take part will attract a fine and may be evicted.
    ● The rules of all tasks are non-negotiable.

    9. Housemates may not discuss any previous series of Big Brother. Housemates are forbidden to discuss their plans for the prize money.
    ● Housemates may not discuss any previous series of Big Brother - either Australian or international - or former Housemates - either Australian or international - with any other Housemate.
    ● Under no circumstances may any of the Housemates discuss how they intend to spend the prize money should they win it. In particular, any pacts to share or split the prize money between Housemates are against the rules and may result in the prize money being withdrawn altogether.
    ● Housemates may not discuss any aspect of the audition process or any person they met during the auditions or at any other time during pre-production or in Lockdown.

    10. Big Brother reserves the right to change the rules at any time.

    I stand corrected. It was Mark. The matter was resolved without anyone being penalized. I would guess they were warned to drop the issue and not throw food\drink during a confrontation.

    big brother tends to issue warnings before moving to more severe consequences, unless it's a serious offense.

    The house rules seem logical. I suspect is not complete because I can think of some that surely are included. One example

    * A house Guest can not falsify another HG's life events that has occurred outside of the BB house.

    An example of this would be a lie: "HG X told me that before coming into the BB house he gave a girl a date rape drug and then he and 3 others raped her."

    TMZ would pick up on something like that within hours. Lying about what happened in the house is OK, but that even has its limits where someone might use the game tactic of falsely accusing someone of a crime (or breaking the BB rules) within the BB house, and BB would need to step in to clear people falsely accused of forbidden actively that never occurred.

    I simply point this out because people can get very creatively if they don't have clear limits what they are allowed to do to win 500K.

    I also suspect that during casting they select people who do have reasonable personal limits (morals) on how far they will go to win. I've noticed over the years the HGs are generally decent people. BB producers could easily could find a cast of A-hole HGs that would cut each other throats if they could get away with it.

    EDIT: I also remember during the 1st BB's All-Stars, where Dr. Will and Mike Boogie conspired to do crap that forced BB to kill the live feeds every few minutes. BB quickly put an end to whatever they were doing. I suspect that they were warned they would be put on the block together and\or expelled. In short, F**cking with production is now allowed.

    sweet home, al
    the feeds have been blacked out since yesterday morning for the taping of tonight's eviction (feeds should be back up sometime following west coast airing of tonight's show).

    here are the rumors:
    • alex was evicted as planned (tie vote, josh sent alex to jury as hoh)
    • paul won hoh (the same f4 hoh comp he won last season, btw :rolleyes:)
    • josh & kevin are the noms
    while the f4 hoh automatically advances to f3, the real power this week is veto (only three noms to choose from)

    if paul wins veto, he might change his mind on keeping josh over kevin (which just might be the smartest move)

    i've seen five different popularity polls listing cody as the most popular hg this season, putting him in good shape to win america's favorite player (jessica posted a while back for viewers to vote for cody over her)

    Final 4 is always interesting. If a non-HOH wins Veto, they have all the power.

    I know it won't happen, but it would be hysterical if Kevin won Veto.

    I think, based on Alex's exit interview, Paul is not going to win - he made too many enemies in the jury as they are figuring out what he did.

    ha! that would be hilarious!

    kevin's going stir crazy, josh, xmas, & paul were all in the hoh bed sleeping, and kevin was alone downstairs. now, kevin's reading alone.

    paul is working on his f2 pitch - 8 wins, never on the block, 191 total days in the house - and his plan to take josh to f2.

    it would be incredible if paul took josh to f2, and came in second place! that would almost make this season worth it.

    As of the final 4, IMHO, if Paul makes it to the final 2, he'll win BB. I think those who feel betrayed by him will quickly get over it and vote for him to win. He has not been an A-hole towards anyone, and my assessment of the HGs on the jury is they are not people who hold grudges toward someone they deep down like as a person and can respect as very good BB player.

    And, as returning HG from last season, the other HGs will find it slightly harder to vote for him to be runner up two seasons in a row. They all knew he was very good player, so they could have evicted him if they had played a smarter game. Paul could make a valid argument in his speech to the jury that getting to final two back to back, is something very few people could accomplish.

    Then again, I could be completely wrong... ;)

    Paul's crocodile tears for the consumption of the TV audience and the jury are pathetic.

    paul won veto, and based on his discussions with xmas about her being the deciding vote, he doesn't plan to use it, leaving kevin & josh on the block, and kevin going to jury.

    I don't understand all of Paul's gameplay. What was the purpose of turning the house against Kevin just to cut him at final 4? Why keep up the charade with Alex after not using veto? These are not good jury moves. Is he just overlooking that part? After last year, he should've learned. I think he still likely wins, but he's making it much closer that it should be considering he basically controlled everything that happened.
