My favorite summer staple Big Brother is right around the corner! The 3 month competitive social series is a summer long fight for power, where the last remaining houseguest receives a whopping $500,000! Every year the Big Brother producers find new ways to shock the viewers and players with twists that are added in along with the expected typical challenges. On The Talk today, host Julie Chen announced the newest twist which makes even the competition winners vulnerable for eviction! The official press release elaborated;
"In the first twist, two Houseguests will win the coveted role of “Head of Household” (HOH) each week, which still comes with special privileges, including a separate suite inside the house. Each HOH will have the responsibility of nominating two fellow Houseguests for eviction every week; however, for the first time on the series, earning HOH will not guarantee one’s safety in the game for the week. With the second twist, fans will have a unique opportunity to significantly influence the game from home with a new interactive element called 'Team America.' In addition, this season of BIG BROTHER will introduce an entirely new high-stakes competition, 'Battle of the Block,' which will dramatically shift the power in the house each week."
The thought of now having two people in power yet at risk unlike previous HOH's along with four potential people who could be evicted means that any preconceived notions about the game must be discarded when you walk in the door. Kudos to the producers for switching the game up! I can't wait to see how it plays out and what exactly "Team America" will do to impact the game
