Big Brother host Julie Chen revealed a new twist called “Big Brother Rewind” at the end of tonight’s Double Eviction show that could change the rest of the season.

Julie notes that while Nicole and Christine walked out the door this week that might not happen to next week’s nominees and that all depends on this new twist.

Here’s how Big Brother describes the new “Rewind” twist:

If that button is pushed in the coming days, then next week’s vote will stop live on the air, the two nominees will immediately come off the block. The game will rewind and the game will be replayed.

That means next week’s nominees could go from being on the block to becoming Head of Household.

As for when it arrives, Julie says we’ll see the Big Brother Rewind “unleashed on the Houseguests” during Sunday’s episode. That means we’ll find out more about it happening from the Live Feeds by the end of Friday. Since Sunday’s shows end with the nominations ceremony, which are held Friday evenings, the Rewind will have to get involved before that is over.

The Houseguests only know the button exists in the house as it was displayed to them on the Memory Wall screens, but they don’t have any other details. Caleb is convinced it will reward them all with cash and MUST be pushed. Frankie warns Caleb he will kill him in his sleep if he pushes the button, but later says he might go along if no one returns by pressing it.

What do you think will happen this upcoming week with the twist? I’m guessing the button will get pressed, but you never know! Stick with us for more details as they become available.

Update: The twist room has opened! Houseguests are inspecting the room and speculating on what could happen next. They still don’t know any details.

Update 2: The button has been pushed! After the HoH comp the HGs raced in and were greeted by a message reading “The Choice Is Yours. It Only Takes One.” Frankie encouraged everyone to push it so they all put their hands on it and did it.

Immediately after pushing the button the screen changed to a clock counting down to next Wednesday at 5PM PT. The HGs do not know the next eviction show will arrive a day early, but they’ll now know to expect something. The entire week will be redone and most likely right on the spot like Thursday’s DE with this HoH not counting .

Update 3: Since Derrick is the outgoing HoH for this week’s round of events I had assumed we’d see him ineligible to compete in the “rewound” HoH comp coming up on Wednesday. Seems that’s not the cast, according to Julie Chen in an interview with EW:

If the rewind button gets pushed, the two nominees next week come off the block and we immediately rewind the game one week. That means all house guests play for HOH all over again.

Hmm. Well that certainly changes things. Maybe Julie didn’t mean ALL all Houseguests, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens on Wednesday.
