Revealed during last night’s Big Brother episode, the first set of vote options for fans includes two mischievous tasks: spread a rumor or spread a rumor. The vote ends today at noon ET (9AM PT), so if you haven’t voted yet be sure to jump over to and cast your ballot.

Big Brother 16 – Team America Vote #1:

MISSION A: Get two Houseguests to kiss and then spread rumors that they are in a showmance.

MISSION B: Get three other Houseguests to spread a rumor that someone in the game is related to a past Big Brother contestant.

Unfortunately both of these missions have negative potential consequences, but “B” seems to have a lot more kick to the problems it could cause. To limit the damage this sub-game could create Mission A sounds better, but how the heck can the three guys guarantee they’ll be able to get a pair to kiss much less start spreading rumors after it with no showmantic activities in the house?

The voting closes today at 9AM PT and the results will be revealed during tonight’s Big Brother show along with the next eviction and HoH competition. Looks like good times ahead!

  1. Ian Terry said on twitter Option B is much more do-able, with Season 13’s Dominic Briones even suggesting that they couldspin a tale about Paola possibly being his sister because they’re both Filipinos.

    Lots of possibilities with minimum risk of backfiring for B compared to option A.

  2. I chose Option B because it doesn’t specify which HG they have to spread the rumor about. The three members of A.T. could mutually decide one of them (on A.T. itself!) is the rumored relative. This could cut down on any potential backlash on rumor-starting with anyone outside A.T. & possibly help “spin” the rumor with the three working together.

  3. Don’t they get alcohol after the HOH comp? Just start a game of spin the bottle after people are loosened up. Now you have lots of pairs who kissed to start a rumor about. I’m sure not everyone would play, but i think that enough would.

  4. Sorry, I don’t like either of these two ideas. They’re both awful in my opinion. I think this season is going great on its own right now. But if they are stuck on getting T.A. to start baseless rumors, Frankie is the right guy for that job.

  5. Team America is stoooopid so far. No alliance in BB history has resorted to stupid antics. Where’s the strategy, game play? Tell one of them to throw a comp, win HOH, back door a hamster, stuff like that.

    • There’s no strategy. It’s simply for fun. Think back to America’s Player in Season 8 or Dan’s tasks in Season 10. Other than America controlling their vote, there really wasn’t anything strategy related.

  6. I don’t pay attention to this TA. The show is doing fine with out it. It’s just a distraction of the flow.

  7. Heres the thing.. Stupid or not, they do not have to do/complete their task. But with $5000 at stake that to me is where the interest takes place. The quick money can get in there head an ruin their chances at the big pot and thats exciting to me.

  8. All they would need to do is start a casual game of truth or dare. Dare the housemates to kiss who are supposed to kiss. Then later say that they “totally saw sparks” during the kiss. Task completed!
