On Sunday night's 9th episode of the season Donny & Amber won the "Battle of the Block" competition thanks to a little help from Caleb who moved very slowly during the competition. That removed them from the Block and they are now safe from eviction for the entire week should someone decide to use the "Power of Veto". They also dethroned the HoH that had put them on the Block who was Nicole. Another stipulation that was added on to last nights' competition was that the HoH that was dethroned must wear a Frog outfit for 1 full week. At the very end of the show Nicole mysteriously disappeared in a huge puff of smoke. The other houseguests were totally astounded that this had happened and they looked all over for her with no success. Some of them asked each other if she had really disappeared? On tonight's episode Nicole will reappear as suddenly as she disappeared but wearing her Frog costume. Also on tonight's episode the 3rd Power of veto competition will be held with the current HoH who is Derrick and his 2 nominees for eviction Caleb and Jocasta and 3 other houseguests at random. Derrick and the rest of the members of the "Bomb Squad" are in hopes that they can win and use the Veto to remove one of the current nominees so they can be replaced with Devin.
"Big Brother" is a long-running reality show on CBS where a group of contestants known as houseguests enter a house in Los Angeles, without being able to leave, or have contact with the outside world, and be monitored by cameras 24/7 while they compete in challenges, form alliances, and vote each other out of the house in the hopes of winning the $500,000 grand prize. They are not allowed to leave the house or its' backyard for any reason, they cannot see or read magazines or newspapers, no radios, no computers, no phones, no I pods or MP3 players and only the HOH is given a small portable CD player to listen to CD's left in the HOH room for them.
HOH stands for the Head of Household and once every week the guests in the house compete to try and win HOH and all the perks that go along with being the HOH for the week. The HOH gets' their own private bedroom with a private bathroom, a huge bed, a small refrigerator and stuff sent to them by family and friends like, letters, pictures, CD's and food. Also every week the current HOH must select 2 houseguests to be put up on the block to be voted on to be evicted from the house that week.
Once a week 6 of the houseguests to include the HOH and the 2 nominees get to compete for the coveted Veto Award. The person who wins the Veto can elect to remove one of the nominees from the chopping block to include themselves if they are on the block. If one of the nominees is removed from the block then the HOH must immediately replace that nominee with a new houseguest.
Every week the houseguests one by one go into the secluded and soundproof diary room to make their selection on who they would like to see leave the house that week. The 2 houseguests on the block and the HOH cannot vote but in case of a tie the HOH would then vote to break the tie live. Once the votes are all in then the Host of the show Julie Chen announces to the houseguests the final results and the evicted houseguest has one minute to say goodbye and leave the house. The show begins with anywhere between 15 and 20 houseguests each season.
Once there is only 9 houseguests remaining in the house then the voted out houseguests from that point on after leaving the house are sequestered to a 2nd house called the Jury House. When the original house only has 2 guests remaining in the house then the 7 sequestered contestants are asked to vote for the person they wish to win the $500,000.00 grand prize.
Big Brother airs 3 times a week on Sunday at 8PM ET/PT, Tuesday at 9PM ET/PT and Thursday at 8pm ET/PT. The Thursday night show is almost always a live show and is presented by the Host of the series, the beautiful Julie Chen.
