Big Brother 18 Battle Back Twist Details: When Will We See The Comps?

The latest twist on Big Brother 18 is the “Battle Back” that will pit the first five evictees of the season in a dueling arena where they’ll compete for a chance to return to the Big Brother house.

Battle Back twist on Big Brother 18

I’ve been warning you for awhile now to get ready for a returning Houseguest and I didn’t disappoint you on that prediction. Here we’ll see which of the first five eliminated HGs gets a second chance at the half-million dollar prize and no one in that house will know they’re coming for them.

Here’s how it will work. Basically think of it like Survivor’s Redemption Island. Glenn Garcia was out first and now he’s joined by Jozea Flores. They’ll compete in the first of four competitions in this twist. Who ever wins between Glenn and Jozea will await the next week’s evictee for the next battle. It’ll go on like this with the first five evicted HGs of the season but only one will remain at the end.

So when will you get to watch these competitions play out each week? You won’t! Yep. CBS is going to hold all of the results and footage back until all the competitions are over. Then there will be a special episode on Friday, July 22nd at 8/7c on CBS where we’ll see all four battles and find out who is going back in to the house. Blerg. I’d much rather see it play out each week but I guess they can’t fit noms, Roadkill comp, Roadkill ceremony, and the Battle comps all in to one hour. Dang Roadkill.

Everything is getting underway now as Julie Chen revealed to Jozea that he might have been voted out but he’s not going home just yet. Unfortunately production decided to show him his goodbye messages from HGs who didn’t think he’d be seen again in there. Bad move, production.

What do you think of the Battle Back twist for Big Brother 18? Glad to see these evictees get another chance or should it be one and done for the season? Share your thoughts below.

  1. I personally don’t have any issues with showing Jozea the goodbye messages. That’s what they did for every returning juror from BB15, BB16 and BB17. They didn’t reveal too much about the truth behind Jozea’s eviction tonight and I think that’s good enough.

    P.S.:He thinks Natalie was the one plotting his downfall and that his eviction was a last minute thing? Wrong and Wrong! Gimme a break, Big Brother Gods, please don’t let him back in!

  2. I’m not to bothered with the goodbye messages as they didn’t really reveal much. Day’s was even tamer than I expected it to be so while she told him that she voted him out, she didn’t elaborate much details other than saying she thought he was playing too hard.

    • You don’t think Day revealing she betrayed him isn’t revealing much? I disagree. They should’ve left that one out imo.

      • If ever Jozea comes back 5 weeks later, the house dynamics would have changed greatly by then so it wouldn’t matter as much. And she didn’t mention that it was the working fot he alliance so surely Jozea would still think that Day flipped last minute.

        Who knows if the majority alliance who sealed his fate would still be around by that time.

  3. Bring back evicted HG’s is always the worst twist. I’m sick of seeing it. It’s not fair to the HOH who evicted them. They work a whole week targeting someone only to have them come back in. What’s the point of winning HOH if they’re going to totally overrule their work?

  4. I cannot stand the “bring back evicted house guest” standard they have established. I think what bothers me most about it is that they’re not doing it for a twist to the game, they’re doing it to keep interest from viewers who may have only connected with one house guest and stop watching when said HG is evicted.
    This is no surprise, but CBS is trying to make a tv show that grabs viewers, not create a compelling game that appeals only to their hardcore fans. It is prime time tv after all.
    I’m disappointed.

  5. lol so this is kinda a BB last chance kitchen? ok, if they showed us a comp on line directly after the eviction like on Top Chef. waiting 5 weeks to see someone come back in to the house with fans having not a chance to root for anyone seems kinda lame – feh

  6. Guys. It’s about money. They get so much ad revenue for an extra episode. It’s more than likely the reason
