    Well basically its a TV show where they take, I believe, 14 random people and put them in this very nice house to compete against each other for power. The title of the TV show "Big Brother" got, as I believe, its name from the book "1984". These so called "House mates" live with each other for 3 months, now during these 3 months they play competions to eliminate 1 person a week. Now how they do this, is they play a game for "HOH" which is Head of household, Now this person has the power to nominate 2 people in the house for eviction. Now the only way either of the nominees can get off the block is to play another game for "veto", now the nominees automatically are in the game, but they randomly pick out of a hat a few people who will compete with them. Now whoever wins the power of veto can either take someone off of the block or keep the nominations the same, however if they choose to use the power of veto to save one of the nominees then the HOH's job is to replace that removed person with another person. Now after the period of 3 months, this process of eliminating repeats itself till we get down to the final 2.

    Now after so many people have left durin the process of this elmination, they begin to put elminated house guests into the so called "jury house", which 8 elminated players will stay to wait till the end of the game to decide who gets the $500,000 dollar cash prize. However whomever gets 2nd place, only recieves $50,000 (which is still GOOD money).

    But durin this game, we, the viewers, watch the player compete with each other for power. Players in the game have there own stradegies, and make and break alliances.. players in the game also exercise there skill in manipulation, which can be VERY risky.

    Its a great TV show. I hope that gave you an idea of how the game is played.
