A/N:Big Brother is a reality show that takes place in America every summer that is shown for us to watch. I watch this show every time it comes on and thought I'd use the show for inspiration. This is the remake of the chapter. I do not own anything Harry Potter or Big Brother related.
"Mr. Weasley, if you are too tired to stay awake in class, then I suggest you get to sleep earlier. This is not my problem. Will you please demonstrate the transfiguration of a teacup to a kitten?" A stern Professor McGonagall said.
"Uhh.." Ron said, "What?"
"Detention, Mr. Weasley. Please demonstrate the transfiguration of a teacup to a kitten."
"Can't you have Hermione do it? She's smart." THe whole room stared at Ron. He blushed.
"No, Mr. Weasley. You do it."
"Fine. Uh, the spell is Veraferator isn't it?"
"Yes. Hurry up."
"Um, Veraferator." Instantly, the teacup was a gray tabby kitten.
"Very good, Mr. Weasley. Ten points to Gryffindor." Suddenly, an owl flew into the classroom. It's chestnut-colored feathers were wild from the windy day.
By then the owl was settled on McGonagall's desk, but she took no notice to it until Hermione raised her hand.
"Yes, Miss Granger?"
"I don't know if you noticed, but an owl is on your desk." Hermione retorted, being the smarty pants she was.
"Thank you for telling me. One second, children." A moment later she returned. Miss Granger, you and Mr's. Potter, Weasley and Malfoy are wanted in the Headmaster's office. Go."
"But-but-I've never been wanted in the Headmaster's office during class before!" A tearing-up Hermione said.
"Don't worry, Miss Granger. You've never been in trouble before, so why would you now?"
"I actually don't know."
"Exactly. Hurry, children."
"Good afternoon. Do you know why I have called you here?" Dumbledore said. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Malfoy were in his office, along with Ginny, Blaise Zabini, Pansy Parkinson, Tonks, Neville, Luna, Seamus Finnegan, and Susan Bones. They all shook their heads no.
"Well, you will. For the first time ever, the wizarding world is holding their own version of the reality show Big Brother that muggles watch. You have been chosen to participate. All you have to do is sign you name here on this waiver."
"Waiver, sir? Why would we need a waiver?" Hermione inquired.
"Some of the tasks you will be participating in will be life-threatening and the company does not want you to sue them."
They shrugged and signed their names.
"Now. I have to explain the rules to you. You will be paired into partners based on your interests. May I warn you that there will at least be one gay/lesbian partnering. No magic. If you lose the food competition for the week you will be put on slop, a nasty type of porridge for the entire week until the eliminations. If you are the last non-eliminated member you will win a prize of 5,000 galleons. The winner will be decided by a jury of the previous six members to be eliminated. At the beginning of the week, exactly one hour after eliminations, the Head of Household competition will take place. The HOH will have the power to nominate two members of the house that will be put up to vote for elimination. If you win the Power of Veto competition you will win the power to take one person off of nomination, and if you do the HOH will replace the nominee with another houseguest. Is everything clear?"
"Well, that was a long speech, sir. May I ask who this time's host is? My father is a muggleborn and watched it as a kid, and he got me into watching it. So, who's the host?" Tonks questioned.
"Your host is Remus Lupin. He asked me to explain everything to you now that way he could start pairing you up. You will now take the test to find your match." Dumbledore said.
After everyone was finished, they headed to their dorms to pack. All except for Tonks, who had already graduated. After that they took a portkey to somewhere in America.
When the dozen entered the patio of the house, they were advised by the camera crew to split up into groups by gender.
When they were already split up, Lupin greeted them by the doors. "Good evening, children. Ooh, and you, my lady," he said, winking at Tonks. She blushed. "Now, I'm going to have to re-do the splitting up. Ron, you need to move to the girls line, and Susan, trade spots with him. That means there will be one female/female and one male/male pairing. Okay, line up behind each of those doors." He said. He then arranged them each, looking at his list. To be fair and to not see who their partners were before they entered the house, there was a wall in between them.
"Welcome to Big Brother, Wizarding Style!" Remus said. Apparently there was an audience out the doors, because after he said that there was clapping. "Our first pair is.....Hermione Granger!" She stepped out of her door. "And....Draco Malfoy!" Hermione gaped in shock.
"Oh, you listen here," she said fiercely, "if you think I will be with some arrogant, filthy pureblood scum like Malfoy then your mother must have done drugs when she was pregnant with you to create someone so stupid."
"What's wrong, Granger? Do you have some problem working with the Malfoy charm?" Draco said, smirking.
"Yes, I do, in fact."
"Aww, come on. Give me a chance."
"Oh, you're gonna get it!" She said, backing her fist behind her head, about to strike. But what Malfoy did was even more shocking than them being paired together...
