Here's one of the changes in the return of Big Brother 4 this summer:

4 ex-couples will be stuck inside the house, along with 3 single men and 2 single women.

Will jealousy rear its ugly head? Will couples re-unite? Stay tuned!

The show is shaping up to be good, though it all depends on the people they selected. And for all the good they have done to shake it up, they still kept Julie Chen as host Posted Image

If the rumors about Julie Chen's tight relationship with Les Moonves are true, I think she'll stay with the show as long as she feels like it.

Wow, very high "quality" from the women's corner, so far. Posted Image

The guys are a good looking bunch too, except for Scott. What the hell's going on, there?

It makes you wonder if there were cast-offs from "Blind Date" or "Elimidate", or any of those other hook-up shows.

The ads also say the people don't know their exes will be there. But wait, don't the people go into the house live on the first episode? Meaning they're not in yet & could see that ad. Or are they sequestered somewhere already?

Chris, they are more than likely sequestered already, if not already in the house. Remember the only live shows are the eviction shows. Usually they have been in the house 3-4 days before the first show is aired, and the live feeds are turned on. Chances are they will enter the house on Saturday, and are sequestered now to do promo stuff.

They are already sequestered, separately. They will not meet each other until the first show, which will indeed be live. After that, only the eviction shows are live.

Where does it say the first episode is live? The first season was live, but the last two have not been, though CBS has tried to pull them off as being live. In each one the houseguests had been there for 3 days or so, which is why live feed viewers missed some important things (like the Hardy/Nicole alliance from BB2 which was formed on Day 2 or so, before the feeds were active).

Oh. The only season I watched consistently was the first one, & I remember most of the first episode showed people arriving, & I thought that was live at the time.

How long are they sequestered before going into the house?

You're right, it doesn't mention it being live. I seem to recall last season them turning on the feeds and it was the same "day" as what had been shown earlier in the evening.

Of course, on the west coast, the "live" shows are never "live"... I dunno.

The first season was live on the first show. They realized that it was boring, so they started giving them a few days lead to have footage, and to be able to edit it the way they want it.

I think last year, the first show ended on the current day, but the houseguests were put in the house 3 days prior.

No question that Allison comes out of the first episode as the reigning drama queen.
