#1 Don’t put someone at a huge disadvantage.
Underdog stories are a fun part of reality television, but they can be absolutely crushing when they don’t come to fruition. Another thing can can be crushing is when CBS actively chooses to put a player at a distinct disadvantage over the rest of the cast.
Take Big Brother 20 for example, where CBS made Sam use a robot to communicate with other house guests for a week. Not only did the punishment gain a lot of attention from fans that were shocked by the move, it also raised questions of if it was fair or not.
In the end, CBS needs to avoid doing this a second time or risk putting a possible fan favorite on the chopping block a little too early. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below!
