Big Brother 13 Episode 1: Twists Revealed

| July 7, 2011 at 8:55 PM EDT

Big Brother 13 Premiere

Big Brother is back! We’ll be right here on this post discussing the “three shocking surprises” and revealing who are the Dynamic Duos from our Big Brother past. Get ready for some exciting news! I’ll keep updating this post throughout the broadcast.

First aspect of the season’s twists: the new HGs will have to pair up from the start. Wow, we see the 3rd hidden room and my inside source was real (see Update 3.1)! The mystery room is a library like I posted ten days ago. Allison Grodner tweeted that room wouldn’t last long anyway, so is it set to become the Have-Not room?

Julie reveals to the HGs that they’ll need to immediately pair up. Which ever pair wins the first HoH both of them will be safe. They will have to then nominate another pairing who will have to campaign against one another to avoid eviction.

Big Brother 13 HG Pairings:

  • Keith & Porsche
  • Shelly & Cassi
  • Adam & Dominic
  • Lawon & Kailia

The new 8 HGs swear allegiance to the group against the inbound former HGs.

Big Brother Dynamic Duos:

  • Brendon & Rachel
  • Jeff & Jordan
  • Evel Dick & Daniele

Have you joined us on Facebook yet or started following us on Twitter?

The first HoH competition has the pairs hanging on to a giant banana. The look pretty slippery, so this can’t be easy. Last pair with a HG hanging wins HoH.

It comes down to Rachel, Daniele, and Evel Dick… Grab your life vests because Rachel wins the first HoH. Julie promises us another twist to “shock” the game.

Okay, this is a big, crazy twist. I think they outdid themselves this season. Here’s how it works. The HG who survives eviction wins a “Golden Key” and becomes immune until there are only 10 HGs left. You can no longer put up 2 people you definitely want to leave because 1 is guaranteed safety for several more weeks. Golden Key holders can’t even participate in any competition until they reach the 10-remaining point. Craziness.

Don’t forget that starting tomorrow morning we’ll have a former HG reviewing the season for us right here on the site. The first article from this mystery HG will be posted Friday morning so be sure to check back in tomorrow.

After tonight’s west coast premiere ends the Live Feeds and Big Brother After Dark will launch (that’s 1AM ET / 10PM PT) so get your BB live feed account signed up and ready now. Reminder that you’ll be able to start using your iOS4 devices tonight (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch), but CBS has delayed the Android app until Friday. Good thing you can download our free Android App right now from the Android Market!

As the show closed we got a quick preview of what’s to come in the next few episodes and it looks like it didn’t take long for the shirts to come off and the bikinis to come out. We snagged a few quick screenshots over on our Big Brother NSFW site to help get the season started over there. Looks like a good summer for uncensored live feeds!

Check it out! The Live Feeds are now on and the game is running. Evel Dick is missing, but he’s not eliminated, just out of the house for some event. The HGs are getting alone surprisingly well and are playing pranks on each other.

There are a lot of Big Brother 13 events going on today to get everyone pumped up for tonight’s big event. You’ll get a pretty entertaining segment on today’s The Talk at 2PM ET/PT when Julie and her co-hosts head inside the house for their own abbreviated game. Julie will also host Dr. Will and Mike “Boogie” on the show so that should wrap up Will’s definite decline to return this season.

Later in the day you can watch SuperPass’ Happy Hour show with Chelsia and Missy at 6PM ET (3PM PT) so get your free trial. Right after that at 7PM ET GFQ Network will be hosting a free call-in show on GFQlive.tv to discuss what they hope to see this season.

Then of course the big premiere lands at 9PM ET/PT and once the west coast premiere ends at 10PM PT (1AM ET) the live feeds and BBAD should launch giving us our first live look inside the game. Keep in mind that tonight’s show will feature pre-recorded clips since the HGs entered back on Saturday. So there should be a lot to discover when the Big Brother Feed turns on so sign-up now (3-day free trial) and see it all live.

Big Brother 13 Preseason Site News

| July 5, 2011 at 10:14 AM EDT

As the Big Brother 13 season ramps up to Thursday night’s big premiere show (9PM ET/PT) I wanted to take the opportunity to run through some details on what we here at Big Brother Network have planned for the season. We’ve made a lot of improvements in the off season with some great new features in store for the season. We’re also bringing back lots of what has made this site a favorite for so many readers.

Big Brother 13

What’s new at Big Brother Network for BB13:

  • Starting Friday we’re going to be joined by a former Big Brother HG. This HG will be sharing [his/her] (oohh, mysterious!) opinions every week on what’s going on in the game in a way that only a former, strategic player can see it. I’m very excited about this and I think you’re going to really enjoy it.
  • The mysterious former HG won’t be the only new addition to our team though. Readers of our American Idol site will recognize the name and talent of Branden. With years of journalism experience and Big Brother fandom, Branden is going to bring a lot to the discussion.
  • The Big Brother Live Feed isn’t the only thing going mobile this season. We’ve finally got our very own mobile app(s) and now that we’re in control of those we’re making them FREE. The Android initial version is available now with improvements in development. The iPhone/iPod version is currently under review by Apple. More details on our mobile apps here, but the important part is FREE and No-Ads!
  • An adults-only site has been set up to capture those “oops” moments and romantic escapades. I didn’t want to muddle out mostly family-friendly site here with any Big Brother nudity, so instead I’ve created NSFW Big Brother Network @ nsfw.bigbrothernetwork.com. NSFW = Not Safe For Work, so tread carefully!
  • Perhaps the biggest change for me is that I’ll be dedicating even more of my time to bringing you the latest Big Brother spoilers and updates as I’m making this my full-time job this season. Tough life, I know, but somebody has got to do it!
  • What’s not changing at BBN for BB13:

    Big Brother 13 Cast: Houseguests Revealed

    | June 30, 2011 at 9:08 AM EDT

    Big Brother 13 cast

    Update: The Big Brother 13 houseguests have entered the house! The game is on…

    Here is your Big Brother 13 cast for the brand new season. We’ve got pictures (see below), details, and more info to follow throughout the day so stay tuned!

    Big Brother 13 Cast:

    So that’s obviously just a partial list from the full cast. Read on to find out who rounds out this season’s cast. The names and faces will be very, very familiar!

    Grab the preseason Live Feed discount which expires very soon. You can download our free step-by-step guide to get the lowest feeds price possible.

    Okay, here’s what is going on with only 8 names out of 14 being announced. I guessed it right this morning on Twitter. 8 HGs are new, the other 6 will be former HGs paired up and returning to game. But the best part is you get to vote on who you think those 3 pairs of former BB HGs should be! Visit CBS.com to vote.

    Big Brother 13 Twist – Former Duos:

    • Brendon & Rachel
    • Dr. Will & Mike Boogie
    • Jessie & Natalie
    • Evel Dick & Daniele Donato
    • Jeff & Jordan
    • Hayden & Enzo

    Twist Update: Dr. Will Kirby announced today that he is not interested in participating this season and has officially retired from Reality TV competition shows. Hmm, I wonder who else on that list is not a serious candidate…

    Twist Update 2: Natalie Martinez confirms neither she nor Jessie will be participating in Big Brother 13.

    Who do you want to come back?? If you say Jessie & Natalie then I’ll forget I ever knew you! Oh geez. That means I could have to listen to the cackling Rachel or grenade-dropping Enzo again this season. For the love of…

    Right now, no surprise that Jeff & Jordan lead the pack with nearly half the votes. They will definitely be back. Jessie & Natalie are in last with just 2% and Hayden & Enzo are in second to last. If things continue this way then Brenchel could be back.

    Lots of discussion on if the vote is binding for who does return. I think CBS is intentionally wording it so they aren’t obligated to bring any certain pairs back (things happen out of their control), but then why do they want to know who we want back if they don’t plan to follow that guidance?
