The 'Big Brother’s Bit On The Side' host's snap clearly showed Dan, Sophie and Sam up for eviction on the numerous TV screens behind him.
However, on the show, Dan wasn't announced as a nominee until a supposed 'live' feed from the house aired 15 minutes after Rylan's picture was taken.
'Safe House' housemates Sophie and Sam believed they were immune from eviction and were asked to pick a fellow housemate to join them, choosing Dan. However unbeknown to them, in a typical Big Brother-style twist, all three now face eviction on Friday.
Eagle-eyed viewers are now calling the show's validity into question, asking whether the Sam and Sophie really picked Dan 'live'. But Rylan defended the show and his actions on Twitter, writing:
In regards to last nights live show where I tweeted a pic in rehearsals showing dan on screen: we rehearse all scenarios, mainly for me to— Rylan Ross Clark (@RylanClark) July 23, 2013
Be sure on what I'm saying, dan was last one rehearsed as he was most likely to be picked as Sam and Sophie had already said earlier in day— Rylan Ross Clark (@RylanClark) July 23, 2013
