As tipped by TV Tonight, the weekly games night will take place for the first four weeks of the season.
Shelley Craft will host with commentary from Mike Goldman and 2012 finalist Michael Beveridge.
“Results and rewards from the showdown will have something to do with making them feel there’s a bit of a hierarchy in the house,” Craft told the Sunday Telegraph.
Meanwhile this year’s twist is expected to be all about deprivation and reward, haves and have-nots. This kind of tactic was also a challenge in a previous season on TEN.
A statement has been released on the twist:
This is Big Brother.
My fellow Australians,
Big Brother is way too sensible to believe in superstition but I do like the number 13 and so, in honour of this number, I’ve decided to make 2013 LUCKY…for some.
Big Brother understands there has been much discussion around the ‘twist’ I have plotted for this year’s launch and, now I have my Housemates safely in lockdown, I have decided to break my silence.
On Monday 29th July 2013 at 7pm, Sonia will introduce you to twelve new Housemates.
On night one there will be division in the House as some will be IN and some will be half-way OUT. The house is modern and opulent but within the House lays the first twist.
Twelve seems a lonely number when you’re not united, so holy matrimony could be “just the trick”.
As my dear old mother used to say, “Do unto others”. I wonder if my Housemates will be nice to their other ‘halves’?
Human nature has always been Big Brother’s obsession, watching as these once-strangers learn to deal with the deprivation and reward of Big Brother’s House. What is it like to live on hand-outs from the wealthy? Big Brother has decided it is time to find out.
Listen carefully as Big Brother spells it out. This year Housemates will be in, out and shaken all about.
With 52 cameras you cannot be missed. There is no hiding from the Big Brother twist.
Until Monday the 29th . . . That is all.
