It possibly returns to this notion of putting someone up with the idea of making them a "pawn" not meant to be voted out. It makes that practice even more dangerous, because even if the "pawning" works, they might resent it and strike back.
On the other hand, now that I think about it more, if the pawning DOES work it also sets up a pretty dangerous game precedent which might make the show kind of predictable. It means that a majority could set things up so they almost never lose power. All they'd have to do is constantly make sure one of their alliance members is the 2nd nominee, both before and after the Veto comp of course, and if they carry the votes to boot the other nominee they are assured yet another week in power.
In fact, that's a fatal flaw with this suggestion. While its not a sure thing, it gives the majority too much of an advantage. People in the minority already have the burden of having to win Vetos to avoid a boot, but under this plan they wouldn't even have the chance to take HoH the next week to get revenge/keep their asses off the line.
So I can't agree now that I think about it. Don't like it.

i think that it is the most original and interesting idea out of all of them. their would be flaws that would have to be addressed, but it'd be a fun "what if" game.
A new picture of Jen.
A tissue box in the diary room (is there one already?). There have been many tears shed in that room. I can cope with the tears though.

1. deface the picture with a sharpie ... draw a mustach and beard on her
2. morph her face with dick's and put the new picture up there
If they are going to give some houseguests a twist, then all should get it. Like the exes and now this. It just doesn't make it fair because either they are targeted because there are two of them or they end up with a buddy to play the game with. I like it better when it's on an even playing field.
The first season was great for one simple reason....the diverse group they cast. A middle aged woman, a man missing a leg (I loved Eddie!), a chubby middle aged man, a freak with funky hair.....the dynamics of the group were perfect. It wasn't the Barbie and Ken show.
Work it like the military. Have bedtimes and wake-up times set.
Each week, take the two people who really hate each other and put them in solitary together. They'll either beat the crap out of each other or solve their differences...possibly changing the gameplay in the process.
Let America vote for two people to be put on the chopping block and have the houseguests vote one out each week.
Feed Julie Chen a cheeseburger. She needs it. I guess Les doesn't feed her since they wed.
A clone of Janelle.
It's new because it's a clone.
I really like your ideas katgib13.
The last one is...
The truth nonetheless.
