Big Brother 7[]

On Day 1, Shahbaz and Lisa were randomly selected as leaders of the Big Brotherhood; as leaders, they had the right to choose which housemates would join them in the Big Brotherhood. Members of the Big Brotherhood would be the only housemates to receive their suitcases and eviction immunity for the week. As Dawn was not chosen to become a member of the Big Brotherhood, she faced the public vote and did not receive her suitcase. After seven days in the House, Dawn received a message from her family saying "your sister is ill". She was later observed to tell the other housemates that "I have a code" and "Something bad has happened, I need to leave". The following day, on Day 8, Dawn was removed from the House as she had communicated with the outside world using a secret code.
