America Has the Power to Change the Course of the Big Brother 6 Game!

[via press release from CBS]



Viewers Can Vote Online at CBS.Com and Via Wireless Text Messaging and

Staying true to the "Summer of Secrets," another twist in the BIG BROTHER 6 game was revealed last night by host Julie Chen, as it was announced to viewers and the Big Brother houseguests that America can vote an evicted houseguest back into the BIG BROTHER 6 game.

For the next week, viewers have the opportunity to cast their vote online at CBS.com and via cell phone text messaging. The polls will close on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 3:00 PM, ET/ 12:00 PM, PT. On Thursday, Aug. 11 at 8:00 PM ET/PT, Julie Chen will reveal "America's Choice" live on-air to viewers and the evictee will immediately return to the game.

Since the game began on July 7, four people have been evicted from the BIG BROTHER 6 house. Michael Donnellan, Eric Littmann and Kaysar Ridha were voted out of the game by their fellow houseguests; however, unbeknownst to the houseguests, each evictee has been sequestered in separate locations and cut off from the outside world with a chance to return to the game. Ashlea Evans, who was also evicted, left sequester and will not be eligible to return.

As part of the twist that is playing throughout the summer broadcasts, each of the 14 houseguests who originally entered the house believed they were the only one playing the game with a secret partner (friends, co-workers and significant others). Over time, the houseguests figured out the pairs on their own; however, in order to win the biggest cash prize in Big Brother history, it is up to houseguests to keep their pairing intact and end up the last two people in the house, as the winner will collect $1,000,000 with the second place finisher winning $250,000. If a twosome does not make it to the final two, the winner will win $500,000.

Members of the public may vote via text messaging (at a cost of $0.49 per text message plus applicable taxes) beginning Aug. 4, between 8:00-9:00 PM, ET and ending Aug. 10, 12:00 PM, PT. Text message voting is only open to U.S. residents. Other restrictions on voting may apply. On some carriers, a free wallpaper download may be offered, subject to a nominal WAP browsing charge by phone carrier. CBS is not responsible for technical or other malfunctions. In the event of electronic or other failure, voting may be suspended. All decisions by CBS regarding the vote and the results are final and not subject to challenge or appeal.

BIG BROTHER 6 is broadcast each week on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) and Saturdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). The Thursday broadcast, hosted by Julie Chen, features the live eviction of one of the houseguests.
