'Big Brother': Season 12's devious new sabotage twist

julie-chen-big-brother.jpgThe "Big Brother" producers have a new twist up their sleeves for the upcoming Season 12 of the reality show... but most of the houseguests won't be in on the secret. For the first time ever, one houseguest will be playing an entirely different game.

That special individual, the Sabateur, is going to do what we the viewers tell him or her to do to disrupt the lives of the other contestants. We'll know which contestant is the fiend, but the rest of the houseguests. The longer the Sabateur can remain anonymous, the more cash he or she will get.

"We've inserted a game piece into the show this season that will make life for the Houseguests harder than ever before," says executive producer Allison Grodner.  "This is a twist that will wreak havoc on the house and the audience will be a part of it."

We'll find out who the Sabateur is during the first live show on July 15, and after that, viewers will be able to submit strategy suggestions via CBS.com.
