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
