‘Big Brother OTT’ spoilers: Alex, Morgan Willett playing as two players; America won’t control everything

Over the Top -

Before we get to the premiere of “Big Brother: Over the Top” later today — or before we even get to discussing some of the final houseguests on the docket later today — we wanted to give you a couple of valuable pieces of information courtesy of executive producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan told The Hollywood Reporter earlier today.

First things first, good news for those thinking that we were just going back to season 1’s format of having America control everything: That is not entirely the case. It seems more like there will be mutual involvement in some way between the fans and the players, as evidenced by what Meehan says here:

“We feel like people really enjoy watching the feeds and a lot of it has to do with the dynamic of head of household and veto and the game elements that we added so that there’s this constant strategy happening. We wanted to make sure that those elements stayed the same so that at least that part of what makes the feeds interesting will still be alive. We’re not completely changing the Big Brother game.”

America will have a role in choosing the winner (it doesn’t appear that there is a jury) and will be involved somehow in the eviction process, but the rest is not entirely clear just yet.

Also, we have confirmation from the two that sisters Alex and Morgan Willett are not going to be playing as a duo like Nick and Phil Paquette did on the most-recent “Big Brother Canada” season. They will make their own decisions, and they won’t even have to tell people they are related. From a social-experiment standpoint, this is what interests us the most — seeing if these two choose to keep their secret just that or try and paint that enormous target on their backs.

As we mentioned, we’re spotlighting all of the houseguests for this season — and you can head over here to read up all about it! Also, sign up over here to score some other TV news on everything we cover, sent right over to you via our official CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: CBS.)
