Big Brother 14 Legal Contract

Attached below is the Legal contract you must sign if you are one of the lucky Big Brother 14 Cast members. It’s a long document 36 pages in all, if you take the time to read it in full you will realize that CBS Production has pretty much complete control. It’s their show so this is understandable.

Here are some tidbits I took out of the contract

Nudes and Nip Slips

Beware of Spoiler sites
I’m pretty sure Jordan never read this section before Big Brother 11..

I understand that such prohibited relationships include dating and having intimate andfor sexual relationships.

Can’t beat up other houseguests
Physical violence is a no brainer but the line about intimidation and threats of physical harm has been crossed before.. many times.

I shall not intimidate with threats of physical violence or bodily harm, or infringe upon or violate the rights of, any other person or entity (including, Without limitation, any other participant).

        1. Mostly Social, conversational skills and thinking strategically. Being able to apply a strategy in social interactions.. To a lesser degree Knowledge of the game and having Production in your corner / fan support / Ratings appeal helps.

          Ohh and luck you need some of that.

  1. Does anyone know why CBS tv shows like The Amazing Race and Survivor get to come on more than once a year,but Big Brother only come on once a year?

    1. They tried it during BB9 due to the writers strike and it was for the most part a failure ratings wise. I’m not sure if there is enough popularity for it to be during the winter months. one reason I like BB is it’s once a year something special like your birthday ;)

      1. Ya, plus. We have to have a life! If it was on twice a year, we’d be glued to the computer watching live feeds all year. hah

  2. There are three types of plans that I can foresee that one can implement in order to win BB.

    1. The Dr. Will Plan: This plan entails dropping every comp and instead focusing on honing your social skills to the point of manipulation i.e., until you’re the puppet-master of the house. Weakness of this plan: If you don’t win comps there is no guarantee you will stay in the game. Strength: It crowned Dr Will as the winner and got him fourth place in BB All Stars, so he must be doing something right.

    2. The Natalie Plan: Lay low, seldom win comps, and attach yourself to the most powerful alliance in the house by guaranteeing that you will vote however they wish. Weakness: Same as above. Furthermore, can draw attention to yourself as a floater. Strength: Got Natalie second place and got Adam third place.

    3. The Brenchel Plan: Win comp after comp until the end. Weakness: Not impossible to accomplish but extremely difficult. Draw attention to yourself as a major threat in the house. Strength: The more you win the more you can’t be evicted.

    4. The Jordan Plan: Win America and your houseguest’s hearts with sheer niceness. Weakness: The House follows the laws of the jungle and unless you have a man or a powerful person protecting you it’s bound to fail. Just ask Kayser. Strength: If the Jury likes you and you get to the end, you most likely will win BB.

    1. You forgot the Evel Dick plan, intimidate and piss off everyone and when you get to the end they will vote for you and want to be friends.

      1. Forgot to ad Weakness: have another house guest with a spine. Strength: Not only did he win the game he made them the other house guests put his daughter in the finals with him.

        1. ROTFL :)

          On a more serious note, Dick won because of two reasons (1). Most important was the persuasive prowess of Eric and (2). America’s player twist.

          So I guess if you want to win using the Evel Dick Plan you need a Eric and America on your side.

          1. Either America loves Dick (pun intended) or really hated the other people in the house. I think it was people couldn’t stand the others and enjoyed the tormenting they were forced to endure..

  3. Big Brother is such a game of strategy and manipulation it’s crazy. Ever since Season One my friends and I have watched the show religiously and have discussed how perfect a candidate I would be. Alas, I lived in Canada…. However, I recently moved to Dallas TX and am planning on applying! This isn’t about the fame for me, and I would like to say it’s not about the money either but, lets face it…. it’s always about the money. lol Honestly this show is just something that I thrive on in every day life, and that’s social interraciton. The thrill of playing this game is something that I have wanted to be a part of for a very long time and now I finally have a chance! Please follow and support me on my quest to become the first Canadian House Guest in the Big Brother house!!

    Thanks So Much Everyone :)
