File this under Yet Another CBS @#$%Up: the series has an iPad app this year allowing people to check things out on the go. (Big Brother Buddy (eeeww), if you want to buy it yourself.) It includes the old four-way view feature, brought over to a more expensive and supposedly sort of reliable system. And late last night, CBS tested it.
Which meant everyone who'd already subscribed got a sneak peek.
So here's what we know:
* Mentors are in fact Britney, Dan, Janelle, and Malin
* Willie and Ashley were hanging out in the HoH bed, which strongly suggests that
A. one of them took the first Future Backlash win. (Who needed first-week protection more than anyone? Besides, so many of the incoming hamsters were talking about throwing the first competition.)
B. they may be on the same team. I'm guessing Malin's.
C. there might be a Hantz going for a Perceived Dumb Blondes alliance.
* The Room O'Swirlies on the left side is believed to be the Have-Not area. Occupants at the time of accident were Janelle, Frank, JoJo, and Shane. This may give us Janelle's team, assuming those in the room were all sentenced there and people win and lose as a group.
So brace yourselves: we may have a Hantz in power. Again. (Of course, in this game, it should be temporary.) So consider who he'd nominate first and foremost -- or who Ashley would put up -- or the possibility that he stole the HoH key and locked everyone else out.
Ain't no rule against it.
Someone threw the competition to him -- someone named Grodner...
