The Saboteur

Julie announced that one houseguest is playing the game with a completely different agenda, with the sole purpose of trying to sabotage the game and wreak as much havoc as possible. Julie said that this person can sabotage an individual, a group or everyone. Their goal is not to win the $500,000 grand prize but rather to make it to the half way point to make $50,000. If they are evicted before the 5 weeks are up they will walk away with nothing. Annie was later revealed as The Saboteur.
