Unlike Big Brother US in which the producers have Julie Chen announce a major game twist during a live show (which are usually occasions when twists are expected to be announced, so its no longer fun or unexpected). BBCAN as usual does something slightly different. The houseguests had no clue this major change in the game was gonna happen and neither did the viewers. It left everyone shocked/surprised. It was a delicious twist to see injected into the game. And it was done in the most perfect way. Right in the middle of the Veto Competition player selection the voice of Big Brother interrupted the HOH and made a major announcement. Top notch production, thats not constrained by its past.
I also loved how BBAU continued to make use of the "voice" and the character of Big Brother being in control of the house like BBCAN. BBUS only uses the "voice" for general announcements in the house. (stop singing, wake up, stop that, fix your mic) But otherwise its edited out of most of the tv episodes. I like how BBCAN has refined the "character" of Big Brother. BBUS has virtually erased the character of Big Brother, the houseguests typically will say, "they want us to do this" or "productions said this". On occasion the houseguests will use the name of the actual producers that spoke to them! If they do this then the precorded voice will say over the speaker "John - you are not allow to talk about production". Just a little peeve, but the use of the Big Brother character kinda retains, in my opinion, the creepy thought that they are being watched and manipulated by someone. The general idea of the original programme.
