This week on Big Brother the Season 16 Twist continues with Team America and voting continues to crown its next member. Have you voted yet?
Last week we met the first member of Big Brother 16’s “Team America” Twist when Joey Van Pelt received her invitation to join this secret alliance trio. Soon she’ll have two other team members and they’ll be sent on tasks and challenges much to our amusement.
Interestingly the voting method will require weeks to complete the team of musketeers and there’s a definite danger of things being disrupted by events within the house before the alliance is done.
Should Team America lose members as it’s assembled then we’ll have to wait and see how production handles this twist to their Twist. But don’t let that stop you from voting for who you want to join Joey! Jump over to CBS.com to use your 20 votes in the official poll, but you can also cast your vote in our poll here and share your thoughts on who should be the next member.
Big Brother Houseguests had an action packed Friday with the results of the Power of Veto competition causing a lot of whispering, plotting, and planning. And that was just in the production office as Grodner scrambled to save her latest Twist already on a crash course to implode!
Find out the highlights from overnight on the Big Brother Live Feeds and get caught up on where the house is headed next. Looks like we’ve got a fun week ahead of craziness.

Big Brother 16 Spoilers: Week 1 Veto Competition Results:
After a crazy first night in the house, for Feedsters, not them, the Big Brother 16 HGs slowly got up late this morning and quickly went to work on plotting their next moves. This cast is not taking things easy the first few weeks, especially not Devin. He’s hear to play hard and fast, apparently even if it sends him out that Big Brother front door.
The first nominations and Battle of the Block spoilers were revealed and now the HGs are preparing for the Veto competition. They think it could be coming up today, but still no sign of any action yet.

Big Brother is incredibly unique in that it never stops. There might be three shows a week, but the action and story is always going inside the BB16 house. That’s why we use not only the articles on our site but also posts on Facebook and Twitter to provide updates all day. If you want a steady flow of news, big and small, then join us there too!
We have over one hundred thousand subscribers on Facebook, nearly fifty thousand Twitter followers, and more than thirty thousand Email subscribers. Become part of one of the biggest Big Brother fan communities out there and share the season and your thoughts with other fans too!
Here are the links to finding us on our social media accounts, but a very important reminder about Facebook too. Facebook is not like Twitter. Every post we share on Twitter goes out to every single follower, but on Facebook they use an algorithm to decide who gets to see that update or important news message. A ‘Like” doesn’t automatically mean Facebook will give you our updates.
There are two ways our messages can be guaranteed to reach you on Facebook, we can either pay Facebook $600 per message or you can click the “Get Notifications” option when you add us. Facebook seriously wants us to pay them that much so you can receive the news you requested to receive. It works out to over $160,000 to send three messages a day for the season to everyone who asked for them, so that’s obviously not a choice. Luckily there’s an easy fix to this problem.
Here’s the option you need to click on Facebook: go to our page there, mouse over the “Liked” button to see a dropdown menu, then select the “Get Notifications” option. Here’s a picture of that. Now you will receive all of our Big Brother news and alerts when we send them out on Facebook!

Thanks for joining our Big Brother fan community! Let’s have a great season and share it together.
Big Brother fans waited and speculated and waited some more this preseason in anticipation of discovering just how this new “Battle of the Block” twist would work. Now after last night’s premiere conclusion we have the answers, but that just raises more questions.
As Julie Chen explained last night on Big Brother 16, the Battle of the Block twist will involve each week’s four nominees in a duel battle to escape the chopping block. Despite earlier suggestions otherwise, the HoHs will not be participating in this new competition, only the noms. Here’s how it works.
Each of the two Head of Household winners will nominate two HGs. Those four HGs will face off and work as pairs, grouped by the HoH who nom’d them. The winning pair will be free from the block, but they’ll also get to “dethrone” the HoH who put them there.
Example: “HoH A” nominates “HG B” and “HG C.” “HoH X” nominates “HG Y” and “HG Z.” HGs B&C compete against HGs Y&Z. HGs B&C win the comp and are no longer on the block. HoH A, who nominated HGs B&C, loses his role as HoH. HGs Y&Z remain on the block since they lost and HoH X, who nominated them, becomes that week’s sole HoH.
Confusing enough for you? Yeah, it seems a little complicated, but I think we’ll get the flow of it before too long.
Here’s the sticking point for me though and it was immediately obvious on what we should expect as a result of these rules. If you were HoH and wanted to remain safe for the week, would you put up strong competitors who would have a better chance at winning and dethroning you, or weak HGs who are more likely to lose and let you stay safe? The latter, of course.
