'Big Brother 12': All houseguests sequestered -- someone returning?

annie-big-brother-close-up.jpgFor the twelfth season of the popular summer reality show "Big Brother," CBS is sequestering all the houseguests. What does this mean for the show this year?

It could be nothing. But typically the first 3-5 eliminated contestants (depending on the number of houseguests) are let to return to their hometowns following their evictions. But this year, CBS tells Zap2it that all the houseguests are being sequestered. Instead of being able to speak to the first few eliminees by phone for their exit interviews, we are having to conduct them all over email.

Since this is an atypical handling of the eliminations, does this mean we'll see a houseguest return? We think it might -- because remember, a houseguest got cold feet just days before the contestants were put into the house. At that point, the premiere date and perhaps the finale date had been set, so losing a houseguest could mess with the summer schedule for CBS. But having someone return would right the ship...

What do you think, hamster fans?
