If you've never seen Big Brother, let me explain how it works. A group of strangers live isolated in a house with tons of cameras that basically record their every move — all day, every day. And each week, the contestants vote someone out of the house. The last remaining person wins $500,000.
In early February, a total of 14 contestants for Germany's version of Big Brother entered the house and were cut off from the outside world, including all news and current events.
