Once we’re done with the intros our first group of Houseguests arrive and greet Julie Chen. Kato Kaelin, Natalie Eva Marie, Tom Green, Lolo Jones, Tamar Braxton, and Ryan Lochte are ready for the game! Julie gives them the green light and they rush inside to discover their new home.

Now it’s time for the second batch of HGs with Joey Lawrence, Dina Lohan, Jonathan Bennett, Kandi Burruss, Anthony Scaramucci, and Ricky Williams.

We need our first Head of Household! HGs head outside to be paired up. Ryan is drawn to go first and he picks Jonathan. Next is Tamar who picks Kandi for her pair. Then we’ve got Joey and Ricky. Lolo and Tom. Dina and Anthony. That leaves Kato and Natalie sitting out from the comp which makes them safe from the first eviction.

HGs are working in pairs to fill cups, pass it to their partner, and then have that poured down to a bowl below with bubbles inside. First pair to fill their bowl will win HOH and then one of those two get to decide who is the first HOH.

The competition is coming down to be a match against Ryan & Jonathan versus Lolo & Tom. It’s super close! … Ryan & Jonathan have the win! But it isn’t that simple

Ryan & Jonathan must next face off in a new competition where the winner becomes the first HOH and the loser becomes the first nominee of the season. Ouch! Can’t wait? Check our spoilers page for the rumored first HOH of BBCeleb! That all happens Tuesday night at 8/7c!

Then on Wednesday night we’ll get the first Veto competition and that should lead us up to the first eviction of CBB2 on Friday night. It’s a big season ahead with lots of fun so stick with us for more!
