Big Brother All Stars HOH Redo Generating Controversy Among Fans

August 12, 2006 02:31 PM by Joe Blackmon

Erika_hohBig Brother fans were in an uproar on Thursday night when several technical malfunctions potentially altered the outcome of the Big Brother head of household competition.  Reality TV Magazine reported on some of the obvious technical malfunctions and posed the question of if there would be a do over for the HOH competition.  The comment section of the article we ran was flooded with Big Brother fans demanding a redo of the HOH competition.  Meanwhile on the live feeds, Howie Gordon continued his protest over the fact that his button didn’t work the first time he hit it.

CBS and Big Brother producers apparently were listening to the protests from fans and the houseguests and in an unprecedented move decided to redo the HOH competition.  The official CBS explanation was “During last night’s live broadcast of Big Brother: All-Stars, a technical malfunction occurred with the buzz-in device during the Head of Household competition.  Therefore, the initial results of the HOH competition, in which Erika was named the winner, were deemed invalid.  The HOH competition was replayed last night and broadcast live for subscribers of the Big Brother online 24/7 feed and will be shown during the Sunday, August 13 broadcast.”

Unfortunately, the Big Brother HOH competition redo is generating almost as much controversy as the initial technical malfunctions.  While the majority of fans seemed to be in agreement that the technical malfunctions created an unfair HOH competition, there has been disagreement over the way that the Big Brother HOH redo was done.  Some fans have argued that because Chicken George, Marcellas Reynolds, and Janelle Pierzina appeared to eliminated fairly and were not victims of a technical malfunction in the first HOH that they should not have been allowed to compete in the second HOH.  However, CBS and Big Brother producers chose to allow all houseguests to compete in the second HOH competition.  Another question posed by some fans is why not have two HOH’s like was done earlier in the season.  That way Erika could have shared the HOH with whoever won the second HOH, and it would have likely created for some interesting drama.

In sympathy to CBS and Big Brother producers, whether or not Chicken George, Marcellas, and Janelle should have been allowed to compete is a tough call.  If technical malfunctions were occurring, it’s possible that producers were unsure of whether Chicken George and Marcellas might have also been affected.  Even though Janelle answered her question incorrectly so she wasn’t affected by a slow or non-working button, she was still in the competition when Mike Boogie’s obvious button malfunction occurred.   

Even though the winner of the second HOH has been revealed on various Internet sites and in CBS’ own press release on the redo, we wanted to give a Big Brother spoiler warning to stop reading now if you do not want to know who won.  The outcome of the second HOH is part of what is generating even more controversy over the redo.  Fan speculation has been that CBS and Big Brother producers would like to keep Janelle in the game since she is a very popular player.  With Erika as HOH, it would have been very likely that she would have nominated and targeted Janelle for eviction.  However, Janelle won the second HOH competition.

    CBS did the right thing. You could tell the buzzers werent working properly. Sorry, that’s the way your cookie crumbles. Janie wins again and Scarecrow Erika goes or nasty Dani. Take your pick. Next to go;
    Marcellus!!!

    mike c, your bias comments are really pathetic FYI the coupe d’etat, also, both janelle and howie will NOT be competing in the veto ceremony, the veto will be used to take one of them off (thats a plan the houseguests have devised) and it will be either chicken george or marci who will be going home. it may even be howie. now for the last time, mike c, u r a prick F*CK OFF

    Unfortunately CBS can’t make everyone happy but it was definitely fair to redo the competition.

    Having both Erika and Janelle as HOH sounds like a very good idea but if CBS didn’t do it already it wont happen.

    DANIELLE WON THE VETO so i think that means its either chicken george or marcellas, and if erika wins the coupe d’etat, hell, if anyone wins it except for janie r howie, then its BUH BYE HOWIE

    The Chilly Two are determined to get out both Dani and Marci after Scarecrow Erika is booted this week. In the midst of this, Chicken George is coasting to the end. If Janie or Howie dont make it to end, cound on Chicken George to win everything and backstab the Chilly Two on the way to the prize.
    Dani’s days are numbered.

    I think the redo of HOH was totally unfair and way out of line..we have watched BB for 7 yrs. It is for sure the last. You can’t make up & change the rules as you see fit i.e. your ratings CBS!!

    It’s absolutely ridiculous when people say the competitions aren’t fair and certain players are being favored by the producers because they’re popular. Every year people say the exact same thing. If it is the case that they tilt things to help popular players then they aren’t very good at it or people like Maggie and Jun would never have won.

    Did any of these “superstar women” watch last year? Did they not see Dianne get screwed over by a guy? HELLO Erica Skank, do you really think Mike is going to take you to the end? Do you really believe he’ll dump his best friend, to give you a shot at the 500k? No piece of ass is worth a half million,especially yours, wake the hell up! The only one who hasn’t backstabed Janey is Howie. Oh yeah James, you puke
    you should die in your sleep!!

    actually, mike and erika were dating before the game, and the only aware of it is will

    I think Chicken George is the only one that really appreciates being in the big brother house. He deserves some recognition. He took having to eat slop with a lot of heart and he is fun to watch.
