Big Brother fans are trying to rig the game by yelling over the show’s studio wall to help certain houseguests with outside info … and now CBS is beefing up security.
The fans watch the show and scrub the live feeds, so they’re aware of cast members’ game plans … and the whole thing is becoming very disruptive — TMZ reports.
CBS security and LAPD were initially tasked with keeping an eye out on the fans, but things weren’t getting better so CBS recently brought in a private security firm to help.
Security got into a foot pursuit with a male fan who attempted to scale a studio fence, but the guy ended up getting away after jumping into a getaway car.
The folks trying to send messages to houseguests are mostly in their 40s, with no young fans in sight– TMZ reports.
With season 22 still in production, TMZ sources say the LAPD is also becoming more visible in the area and keeping a close eye on the area where the fans keep gathering.
There was also a drone scare and a rumor floating around social media that someone was going to hurl a banner over the fence … but so far the fans on bullhorns are the biggest nuisance.
Big Brother fans in past seasons resorted to throwing tennis balls inscribed with messages over the fence and onto the studio lot in hopes of reaching contestants.
Whew they simply have enough time in there hands.
