‘Big Brother’ Viewers Are Calling The Game “Rigged” After SJ Was (Once Again) Saved From Eviction
Following weeks of countless twists and turns, Big Brother viewers are officially fed up with the show after SJ was once again shielded from eviction last night.
This season of Big Brother has seen more housemates saved from eviction than ever before. However, the timing of these saves is high-key suss, as Big Brother has a tendency to announce an eviction twist every time the show is about to evict a big character.
Housemates like the Insta-famous SJ and loose unit Daniel have time and time again been given advantages to keep them in the game. Last night, SJ was nominated along with Mary and Marley and was voted out fair and square. But at the last-minute, Big Brother announced that due to the house still living through Hell Week, the contestants had unwittingly voted SJ as Head of House. SJ didn’t just get to stay, but will be treated like a queen for the week.

SJ being spared from eviction follows another twist where she was saved a few weeks back. SJ and Mary were both voted out, but were then able to remain in the house’s attic and watch the housemates, therefore gaining a major advantage in the game.
This means that last night’s save was the second time SJ should have gone home but didn’t. After enduring Walking Dead Week last week where, once again, people were voted off but didn’t actually get evicted, Big Brother viewers are growing frustrated with how the game picks and chooses who deserves to stay in the house.
The timing of that twist is very suss. Just like the first time SJ was evicted #BBAU

#BBAU Big Brother saving SJ again from eviction 🙄 Does it have something to do with her 200k instagram followers?

Big brother just makes up rules as the weeks go by to suit the programs target audiences. Younger generation are on social media alot, the elderly watch alot of TV, so obviously it makes sense to keep SJ in the house to boost BB TV ratings. Dam that's 2 lifelines for SJ #BBAU pic.twitter.com/5xlLpuAJzE

Some reckon that no matter who was evicted this week, they would have been saved in keeping with the chaos of Hell Week.
While yes, SJ was saved by Big Brother the first time by sending her to the attic but you guys saying she specifically got saved again this week??? Ummm no, what makes you so sure that the save this week wouldn't have happened if it were Mary or Marley that was eliminated? #BBAU

But most are calling bullshit, complaining that the competition is rigged to protect big personalities like Daniel and SJ from eviction.
Danny getting “sick” and avoiding nominations, SJ being saved and living in the attic, SJ again getting saved, Danny getting that survival kit????? This show is so rigged, no wonder it’s losing viewers!!! #bbau

refusing to watch @BigBrotherAU from tonight, the show is rigged. SJ saved twice from eviction now by the show not housemates and somehow Danny is the only one that gets secret missions since the start? #bye #BBAU

This is easily the most rigged season of Big Brother I have ever seen, worse than BBUS. SJ has been saved TWICE now when she was evicted. Special treatment for Daniel and SJ.
Clearly production isn't wanting Daniel to win, it's her. #BBAU
