Here comes the first live competition for Big Brother Over The Top and this is a big one with the season’s first Head of Household winner set to be crowned ahead of this week’s nominations. So who will pull off the win and how will this all go down? I have no idea, but I’m ready to watch it all play out as it happens on the Feeds!
Yes, this competition is entirely live and will be featured on the Live Feeds as it happens plus you’ll have the chance to rewind and watch it again later if you missed when it happened. Things kick off here at 4PM ET (1PM PT) so settle in with us for the live spoilers and results or if you’re joining us later that’s your target time for Flashback.
Big Brother OTT – Week 1 HoH comp:
- 12:50 PM BBT – Waiting for the competition to get started. All of the HGs are hanging out.
- 1:00 PM BBT – Houseguests called to go inside.
- 1:01 PM BBT – They find a bottle of blue liquid with a card reading “Only 1 May Drink”
- 1:05 PM BBT – No one wants to drink it fearing poison… really HGs?
- 1:06 PM BBT – Shane drinks it. BB announces: “Shane, you’re infected! Get to the DR!”
- 1:10 PM BBT – HGs waiting around and anxious to find out what happened.
- 1:20 PM BBT – Shane has been in the DR for 15 mins. Nothing yet.
- 1:25 PM BBT – Shane is back! That was just the prelude. He has a card with all the details… more below.
- 1:27 PM BBT – The comp is on and lasts until 1PM BBT tomorrow. We’ll keep this thread live & updated.
- 2:15 PM BBT – Shane & Monte agree to target a girl next & maybe go after Kryssie.
- 2:45 PM BBT – Alarm goes off. Shane picks Danielle to be next. She’s “infected” & will pick next target.
- 3:32 PM BBT – Next alarm sounds. Justin offers to take it. Danielle gives him the bug.
- 4:12 PM BBT – Justin’s turn to hand off. He goes upstairs & tells Shelby it’s her.
- 5:12 PM BBT – Shelby has handed it off to Scott for the next infection.
- 5:20 PM BBT – Scott returns with his identifying shirt & Neeley offers to be next.
- 6:14 PM BBT – Neeley accepts the bug from Scott. She has been infected.
- 7:30 PM BBT – Neeley hands it over to Kryssie as previously discussed.
- 8:20 PM BBT – Morgan is “infected” by Kryssie.
- 11:25 PM BBT – Morgan was stressing who to give it to. Cornbread volunteered to take it with plans to infect Jason.
- Friday updates:
- 10:15 AM BBT – Morgan gives the Bug to CB as planned.
- 11:03 AM BBT – Cornbread infects Jason just as planned. Alex, Monte, & Whitney remain in the comp.
- 12:22 PM BBT – Jason infects Whitney instead of Monte. Whitney will pick who will be HOH: either Alex or Monte.
- 1:01 PM BBT – Whitney infects Alex. Monte is the new & first HoH of BBOTT.
Update: It came down to Alex or Monte for the HoH after Jason gave it to Whitney in hopes that she’d infect Monte. But of course she didn’t. So now Monte is the HoH and will make two nominations this weekend. Viewers will also be voting for the third nominee, but we’re still waiting on details for that.
Shane returns and reads from the instruction card. I’ll paraphrase. (Video added.)
The first competition is “BB Bug” and it has begun. Shane drank the potion and was “infected” so he can’t be HoH this week. Next time the alarm sounds Shane must immediately give the “bug” to another HG. That HG is now “infected” and ineligible to become HoH. This will continue for 24 hours (ends at 1PM BBT on Friday).
Last HG who doesn’t get infected win HoH. That HG noms 2 other HGs for eviction. We also know fans will be voting for a 3rd nom, but they don’t know that yet.
General rules: HGs may not refuse the bug once they’ve been selected to receive it. The “infected” HG has to wear the bug until the next alarm sounds and they pass it along. Each “infected” HG gets a t-shirt to wear until the comp is over. I imagine that’s to help Feedsters identify ad hoc who is still in the running to be HoH.
