‘Big Brother 19’ Special Episode Next Week: Battle Back Ahead!

Big Brother Houseguests have been dropping fast with three gone already at the end of the first live eviction of the Big Brother 19 season, but could we be about to see someone “Battle Back” next week?

Update: Julie Chen confirms there’s a special episode next week for the evicted HGs to get a chance to return to the house and keep playing the game!

Battle Back Friday on Big Brother 18

Kudos to reader @DrewMack10 who saw this on the official CBS schedule and sent it over to share the news. Looking ahead at the schedule via the CBS app, because it doesn’t show up on the main CBS website, you can see an extra entry for Big Brother on Friday, July 21st. Hmm.

Right there at 8/7c next Friday (July 21st) we’ve got a bonus Big Brother in the lineup taking the place of the regularly scheduled MacGyver episode that night. That’d be just the same approach the series used last year when the first 5 Houseguests competed for a chance to get back in the game. In that situation Victor was, um, victorious after fighting his way back his competition of the other first four HGs that season.

This time around, if things ran next week then there’d be just four Houseguests competing. Cameron was out on the first night then Jillian went out Thursday night in her awesome blindside. Megan quit so there’s no chance she’d be involved. There may be just two more spots left and oh boy, look at this.

Paul is setting up his big Backdoor plan to get Cody out. If Cody goes and then wins his way back in? Oh my, oh yes, oh my we’ll have ourselves a wild night. Could it get much better than both seeing Cody getting evicted and coming back the next week with a vengeance? Team Feeds for the win!

What do you think of this possible twist? Is that what Big Brother is up to or will they try something different this season? It sure does seem to fit with Cameron remaining MIA and we know production loves to go with its comfort zone. I’d say this seems very reasonable to expect.

If it’s Cameron, Jillian, Cody (assuming way too early here that Paul manages to execute his plan), and one more spot facing off then who do you think will win his or her way back? Share your thoughts below on what you think might be happening here and we’ll keep waiting for official word from CBS to share.
