I just had a crazy idea. In conjunction with all the other fun quizzes I thought it might be an interesting way to get us through the summer. Are you all aware of the format of the show on TV? They do crazy challenges and kvetch all the time---this wouldn't be about that. It's all about establishing a "head of household", that one who answers best on the trivia quiz before him is how we'd determine him or her. Then they make a quiz (any sort, but not too terribly long). Then the person who scores best on that one gets the veto vote and can't be eliminated but the head of household then gets to put two people on the "block" to be voted out. It'll have to be limitted to a certain amount of regular players all the time. Maybe 5-10? There would be no time limit since nothing will be determined until all the "houseguests" check in. The game would be all a matter of trivia knowledge, strategy, making alliances (no one is saying you can't buddy up with someone privately and do a little sabotage). Could this ever work? I'd just be the "Julie Chen" on this . And it would all be about fun! I haven't thought about further details on this (and some need to be thought out) but I was checking if anyone thought this might be a little fun. Let me know.

Argh. I forget how to format it now. But it is worth a try.

Sounds like an idea! Count me in, but since I don't watch TV, you'll have to explain the rules...

I'll have a crack at it! They always need someone to kick out in the first week, so it might as well be me. Most people seem to be totally unaware who I am as it is! (I'm Flynn_17, by the way)
