FAQs

What is the Stock Watch?

The Stock Watch is a virtual stock market game for North American Big Brother shows

How does the Stock Watch work?

Every week, the LFC (Taran, Brent, and Melissa) will rank the remaining houseguests. The average of these numbers, along with the audience ranking, will determine the price of each houseguest. You will then have the opportunity to purchase stock, betting on which houseguest you think will improve and do well in the game. Your goal is to accumulate as much net worth as you can. At the end of the season, the person with the most net worth will win the Stock Watch.

How are the stock prices determined?

Magic, probably. We don’t actually know. Every day at 6am a little elf shows up with a scroll of numbers. We use that to set the prices for each houseguest.

In all seriousness, we are using an algorithm that takes into account a houseguest’s current rating, as well as historical rating. A pattern of high ranks will result in a higher price, and vice versa for lower ranks.

How do I participate in the audience ratings?

At some point in the 24 hours before the Roundtable for that week, Taran tweets out a survey for houseguest ratings. You can use that to contribute.
