'Big Brother' to feature big nine-person jury for fifteenth season
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/08/2013
Big Brother's fifteenth season will have more than seven jury members for the first time in over a decade.
"BREAKING NEWS! The #BB15 jury begins this week with both evicted Houseguests from the Double Eviction on Aug 8! #BiggestBBJury!" CBS tweeted Wednesday.
The show's current season will depart from its usual seven-person jury format and feature a nine-person jury instead. EveryBig Brother edition in the franchise's history has featured a seven-person jury except for the show's first three seasons.
In Big Brother's first season, there was no jury at all. In the reality competition's second season, the jury consisted of nine members. Big Brother's third season, which aired back in 2002, had a whopping 10-person jury.
News of the expanded jury will be revealed to Big Brother's fifteenth-season houseguests during tonight's broadcast at 9PM ET/PT.
