It is getting really close, here is the most recent 'news' I have come across about Big Brother. In this interview posted by long time Big Brother fan "Dreamer," Julie talks about the Saboteur and she says that the Saboteur can earn 50k if they make it 5 weeks in the house and implies they aren't playing for the 500k - but you can bet that will change when they make it to the 5 week point. Perhaps they will be given the option to give up the 50k to go for the 500k? Anyways - here is the video:
The other item of note is the ending of the "Early Bird Special" promotion for the live feeds. We always assumed it ended at midnight tonight - but Real posted a twitter implying it ended at NOON. Problem is it said 'noon tomorrow' and was sent out right after or right before 12am so I am unclear if that is noon Wednesday or Thursday. I have sent an email to the powers that be and will update this post when I know for sure - but to be on the safe side you might want to sign up by 12pm (Pacific - 3pm Eastern) today if you planned on getting the live feed discount anyways.
