My mom has it over all of you on this one. When I was like 6 she dated a guy who drunkenly beat the hell out of her one night. She was smart and pressed charges, this was in the early 80's so it wasn't an automatic thing. He did reach out to apologize at one point in time, had done his jail time, and sobered up. But like 30 years later she called me all excited one day..... Hey! Guess who died!!! After I got over my WTF Mom question and she told me his name, I got it.
I've read there will be a rotating crew of production people. I've been hoping they will rotate them out on eviction night so they can serve as a makeshift audience too. Swap out, new goes in, old is the audience as they are going out. I don't know if it's logistically possible, but it would be nice if it is. Plus, for a change, the audience might actually be people who have half a clue as to what they are really like, not just people who want to be on TV.
