Get ready for a very exciting episode of Big Brother tonight on CBS at 9/8c when the first and possibly the only Double Eviction event hits the season. The HGs are expecting it, but there’s no way to prepare for the chaos of what’s about to happen.
If you’re new to Double Evictions then here’s how it’ll work. After the first eviction the HGs will rush out to the backyard and compete for HoH. The HoH will have just a few mins to decide on the nominees before announcing them at the Nomination Ceremony. Next up would normally be the MVP, but I’m guessing that just won’t be part of the rapid cycle of events. In that case there would only be two nominees plus four other HGs competing for the Veto. Once the Veto Comp and Ceremony are over the HGs will hold a second eviction vote and out that HG will go through the front door to meet Julie Chen.
I’m speculating we won’t see the MVP twist in the second cycle of events due to logistics. For one thing we haven’t had a vote and two it would likely make it obvious that the MVP voting was not coming from inside the house or if a HG was called to the DR. The easiest solution would be to simply skip over it for the round.
Of course there’s the whole “Reset button” teased to us by Julie Chen yesterday so anything could happen tonight and we’re excited to see how things turn out!
Last week the “live eviction” was allegedly pre-recorded over fears of backlash from viewers watching Aaryn lead Howard’s eviction as HoH. Considering we’re right back to facing a similar situation with GinaMarie rallying the HGs for Candice’s eviction I’m very curious to see if we get Trivia all afternoon again. (Hmm, Trivia started at 10:13AM BBT.)
Once tonight’s show is over we’ll get our Live Feeds back and we should be watching a house without a new HoH. That second Head of Household competition of the night will likely be played later but we probably won’t get to watch it if it’s like past seasons. The competition could end up being what the HGs practiced if it isn’t in tonight’s show.
I’ll be here live blogging tonight’s show and any live competition results as they happen, so stick with us if you’re blacked-out or have NFL preseason in your area. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, by Email updates, and even our free apps to get all the latest news.
