Usually when the “Big Brother” live feeds go dark, fans are left scrambling to try and figure out what’s going on in the house. They then try and piece it together from snippets of conversation afterward. This time, there was no need at all as former Houseguest and fan favorite Jeff Schroeder tweeted exactly why the feeds went dark.
Schroeder and his long-time fiancee Jordan Lloyd were announced as special guests this weekend during the live eviction episode on Thursday. They apparently arrived sometime on Friday, as Schroeder posted a picture that featured the remaining five Houseguests.
But they weren’t in the Big Brother house. And Schroeder was on one knee in front of Lloyd. There were a lot of other people surrounding the couple, presumably friends and family, and it was obviously a staged picture. But the joy was real.
“SHE SAID YES!” Schroeder wrote as accompaniment to the picture.

It’s unclear what happened that the Houseguests were seemingly able to leave the house to witness this “Big Brother” proposal, but all will probably become clear when the next episode airs on Sunday at 8/7c on CBS.
Schroeder and Lloyd met during “Big Brother 11,” hitting it off almost immediately. The two quickly became fan-favorites, competing on “The Amazing Race,” and returning to “Big Brother” several times as special guests. They even got a chance to play again as a couple in “Big Brother 13.”
The final five are currently battling it out for the half-million dollar prize as “Big Brother 16” cruises toward its conclusion. New episodes are Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8/7c.
