The Jury of 9

Breaking news from earlier today (Wednesday): Big Brother has announced that the two house guests evicted this Thursday night (August 8, 2013) will be the first two members of the jury. Assuming no additional twists come along, that means #BB15 will have a nine-member jury, up from the usual seven. The jury returns during the final episode to pick the winner from the two finalists.

Jury members are sequestered in a separate house for the remainder of the season. They have limited contact with the outside world. They have no access to the live feeds. They do see edited versions of the TV show which includes competitions and ceremonies but no diary room sessions or other game talk. But they talk with the other evicted house guests after each arrives at the jury house, hearing each person's scoop (biased as it is) on what happened in the house each week.

One more thing: There are no live feeds of the jury house. We only get to keep watching what happens in Big Brother house itself.

The house guests have been speculating about a double eviction this week and how it could affect the jury, but they've heard no official word yet. Share your thoughts here or hit me @uselesstraffic.

Next from the Newbie Desk: My post which details each day's unique scheduled activities was preempted for this news, but it's still coming. And on Thursday, I'll detail how a Double Eviction episode works.

Post-Jury Questioning


The feeds came back at around midnight to Dan mumbling to himself about how he has to get either April or Ollie’s votes, but he never talked to either of them. But in his mind, it’s Renny’s vote that is the most crucial. “If I do not get Renny, then I cannot win.”
Memphis then joins him (he apparently was in the diary room), and over beers they discuss the jury questioning. Surprisingly, it appears that the jurors are now going to be separated from each other until the finale.

Each of them believes the other has the votes to win. Dan says Memphis has three votes “wrapped”, so only needs one more vote. Memphis replies that Dan’s probably overestimating the count, and that it’s a toss up. He believes that Dan will get Michelle’s vote because of the trip (“that trip was huge”), but agrees that April and Ollie’s block votes could determine the winner.
Keesha apparently asked Memphis about his line about taking her to the end, and Memphis response was that she never made a similar promise to him. He doesn’t remember what Ollie asked him, though. (No surprise.) Renny’s question to him was what did he do for her? Michelle whined to Memphis that he threw all the competitions. No, that was Dan. “We didn’t win shit for six weeks, and then we won everything.” They both agree that if Michelle had remained in the house, she would have won a lot of the competitions.
Jerry apparently complained to Memphis that he tried to take his four grand that his children “need”. Dan asks Memphis if he would have had his vote if he kept Jerry over him. I think everybody knows the answer to that question.
One other interesting tidbit that came out last night – besides teaching, Dan is also a website designer. This info came out when they were discussing the “shocking” disclosure that Renny owns her own business. I still don’t get why that’s a big deal.
