Today on The Talk, Big Brother host Julie Chen gave us a preview of tonight’s Head of Household competition and we got a few extra details for what we might be able to expect.

CBS brought in three of its daytime soap actors to help out on the test run of tonight’s Big Brother HoH comp, so these are not actual Houseguests. Most of the set was covered up but we could see a few angles that suggest a Hollywood movie premiere theme.

The three players stood on the familiar short boards raised up off the ground and then had to catch tomatoes (well, red balls) flying through the air. Julie teased the guys with a few different items flung their way with paint and dust, but settled on tomato sauce.

Most interesting to me was the arrangement of the standing boards. They are well spread out which makes it seem difficult to fit fourteen Houseguests in that space, much less sixteen. We can see at most six seven spots at once. Hmm, could this support the 7 HGs at a time per the two-night premiere as I suggested the other day? Maybe. Maybe.

Check out the pics from today’s Big Brother 17 preview on The Talk and then get ready for tonight’s Big Brother premiere!

      • If they’ve been in there with her for a week prior to the HoH comp, then I might agree. lol But then they may consider her harmless/pliable so maybe not this week. I don’t see them going on a nerd attack this early just because they can milk them for their game knowledge. Austin better either win or ease into things so he doesn’t scare anyone too early. But then Jace might be one they target (athletic surfer dude), like they did Aaryn’s surfer boy toy. Be a shame. I’d like to see what he does.

  1. My Comcast info for the show says “… the 14 houseguest move into the house…” for this episode. So either only half of the houseguests in the house compete, or all of theme take part. OR the gender/battle of the sexes rumor is correct, and there’s a men’s round and a women’s round. That seems quite plausible.

    • I would love an all-female alliance if it results in a female winner this year, but I’m not quite sure yet how I feel about the battle of the sexes rumor. I’m thinking it would definitely damage the chances of an all female alliance. It would just be nice, for a change, to see females succeed in keeping an alliance intact until the end. It would definitely be difficult, I think, but impressive.
