Big Brother under fire over potential rule-break

Big Brother 2012 has come under fire from viewers after Caroline was caught showing Conor her cards during Monday’s face-to-face nominations.

On Sunday, Big Brother set housemates a Wild West-themed shopping task, which culminated in a twist on Monday evening involving housemates making their seventh round of nominations in front of the group.

Each housemate was given a deck of cards featuring the other housemates’ faces, and had to draw the cards of their chosen nominees, display them and explain their reasons.

The segment aired in last night’s highlights show, and eagle-eyed viewers spotted a second-long clip in which Caroline fanned out her cards and displayed them to Conor.

Big Brother 2012 - Conor, Caroline face-to-face nominations

Although it is not exactly clear what happened, many angry fans have speculated that they could have been discussing who they were voting for, which would break the rules banning housemates from discussing and influencing nominations.

Conor and Caroline had already affected the nominations – albeit unknowingly – after helping Scott, Sara and Luke S to win immunity.

As the task’s Sheriff and Deputy, they were able to split the other housemates in to three teams – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly – and determine which teams won three mini challenges, which rewarded them with extra time in the final immunity challenge.

Shortly after the nominations took place, Deana, Sara and Luke A were punished for conversations Big Brother deemed to be rule-breaking.

bbspy has approached the show for an explanation.

    So there wasnt a good Camera angle for conclusive evidence to prove Carolines wrong-doing ! ! ! –wasnt that convenient ? ?
    But does it really Matter ? ?
    Carolines actions have made the whole nomination process QUESTIONABLE to say the least and should NEVER be allowed to go ahead
    We know BB bend over backwards to keep certain HM’s in, This year thats more apparent than ever.
    BB,,,,, with this LUDICROUS decision youve just lost thousands of viewers and MONEY PAYING voters, you can ill afford to lose

    OMG anyone can clearly see Conor looking at her cards. She’s sitting so close to him she’s virtually sitting on his knee. She’s showing him her cards how can BB say the camera was at an angle that they couldn’t see. It’s there…we can see it BB why can’t you.? :shock:

    It wasnt a “Potential rule break” it was a BLATANT rule break, BB didnt have the angle ( so they say) to see who’s card Caroline was showing also means they didnt have the angle to see that it wasnt Laurens pic she was showing, leaving a big question mark over the who’ll debacle,
    There may not have been enough evidence to punish Caroline and Conor ( yeah we believe you ! ! !) but there was plenty of evidence to make the nominations null and void, putting the whole house up and letting the public REALLY DECIDE for once who goes
