'Big Brother' reveals twist for new season: There's a saboteur among them! Thoughts?

Posted on


Image Credit: John P. Filo/CBSCBS announced today the twist for the upcoming season of Big Brother — because you knew there was going to be one. For the 12th installment of the series, there will be one houseguest whose sole purpose is to shake up the house and the game.

This Big Brother Saboteur — as he or she is being called — will receive their commands directly from the viewers, who will learn the mole’s identity during the first live show on July 15. (You can find out more about how the audience will factor into this here.) The longer the Saboteur hides their identity from the other housemates and can stay in the game, the more money they win.

So, Big Brother fanatics, what do you think of the twist? And what kind of evil actions are you already thinking up for the Saboteur? The possibilities are endless!

Reminder: BB and The Chenbot return July 8.
