As previously announced, Host Julie Chen will reveal details of the two new twists and the new competition for the season during the premiere episode. In the first twist, two Houseguests will win the coveted role of “Head of Household” (HOH) each week, and will have the responsibility of nominating two fellow Houseguests for eviction; 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.” Today, CBS Interactive launched the site cbs.com/bbteamamerica, asking viewers to vote on which of the new Houseguests they would like to form an alliance with.
In addition, an entirely new high-stakes competition will be introduced, “Battle of the Block,” which will dramatically shift the power in the house each week.
Following the two-night premiere, BIG BROTHER will air Sundays, beginning June 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), and the live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen on Thursdays, beginning July 3 (9:01 – 10:00 PM, ET/PT).
