Proposal: The Place We Don’t Speak Of

In Rule 2.3 (The Bunker), replace “Each Contestant occupies a single room, as tracked in the GNDT under the column “Location”, and begins in the Lounge.” with:-

Each Insider occupies a single room, as tracked in the GNDT under the column “Location”, and begins in the Lounge. (Outsiders have their Location value set to ‘Outside’, and are not considered to be in any room.)

And put a paragraph break after it, and replace “Contestant” with “Insider” throughout the rest of the rule.

Under current rules, Outsiders still exist in the last room they occupied, which - depending on what we think “Outsider” means - doesn’t necessarily make a lot of sense.

against I had assumed that the outsiders were still in the bunker but simply were no longer eligable to win.  The wording of the Ascention Address would seem to concur that we are in an: “underground bunker in an undisclosed location (why oh why could the prop guys not at least tell me where it was?), with nobody else here but the cameraman, well and the contestants.”  That would make it hard to kick people out, woudn’t it?

I thought the general reality TV trope was that when contestants were voted out, they had to leave the show. It seems a bit odd to have evicted Outsiders still sitting around eating food, cooking meals, being filmed and making diary entries.

“Outside” could just be a different part of the bunker complex. A glittery sliding airlock that leads to a dark boiler room.

for or perhaps there’s a lift behind one of the hidden doors that leads out to a jungle or something, the outside, (after all, how did we even get here? surely there’s some way out… if we can only find it.)

for Let’s just say, that although there obviously are locations outside where you currently know of the house, they aren’t the same ones. Also, we have to store evicted contestants somewhere.
