THURSDAY: Expect the
Game Change Helps "Big
Brother" Win for CBS... and a Hint of What's to Come
From various sources
On Thursday, Big Brother's
official Facebook page posted a headline from CBS.com
which read: "Julie Chen to Reveal Game-Changing Element
on Big Brother After Show Tomorrow."
The After Show, hosted by former Big Brother and The
Amazing Race contestant Jeff Schroeder, airs Fridays on
CBS All Access, the network's online video subscription
Reality TV World reports that CBS declined to reveal any
additional details about the new twist -- including
whether it may possibly have a connection with this
Friday's night first-ever "Battle Back" competition
between the previously evicted houseguests or an end to
this season's "Team Play" format.
For the "Battle Back" competition, the first five
evicted Big Brother 18 houseguests will compete for a
chance to re-enter the game. The first four evicted
houseguests have been Glenn Garcia, Jozea Flores, Victor
Arroyo and Bronte D'Acquisto. The final evictee who will
compete for the opportunity to come back was determined
via Thursday's live eviction episode.
Big Brother 18's season began with a format that divided
the 16 initial houseguests in four four-person teams.
However while the houseguests have competed for Head of
Household individually, all the team members of each
week's reigning HoH have automatically been safe from
nomination for eviction -- a limitation which has
increasingly limited the season's gameplay and denied
houseguests the opportunity to target members of their
"Big Brother" was the most-watched broadcast not

NBC on Tuesday announced a global casting call for World

executive-produced by the Shades of Blue star, in which
one winner will receive a “life-altering” $1 million
Here’s how World of Dance works, per the network’s
Handpicked from qualifying events around the nation
and thousands of online submissions, competitors are
divided into three divisions: Junior (any size act under
16 years old), Upper (groups of 1-4, over 16 years) and
Team (groups of 5+, over 16 years). After an initial
audition round, divisions face off in duels, until only
one of each is left standing. A panel of experts score
the acts using a precise point system developed by World
of Dance, using the following criteria: Routine,
Execution, Presentation, and Crowd Appeal. The epic
finale sees the winners from each division duke it out
for $1 million and the title ‘Best in the World.’
“This will be a fierce talent-heavy dance competition
that embraces the raw emotion and excitement that dance
represents,” Lopez said in a statement. “I am excited to

with the idea of 'Cash Trapped' - a plan he's been
sitting on for 10 years - and can't wait to bring it to

'Cash Trapped' will see six contestants go head-to-head
as they frantically try and answer a series of

hometown sweethearts and fitness models from across the
United States, will be invited to Los Angeles as this
fun-loving athlete searches for that special someone to
become his lifelong "teammate." To help make some of
these tough decisions, Travis has enlisted the help of
his "boys" who know him best: his older brother,
Philadelphia Eagles center, Jason Kelce, and his
longtime manager, Aaron Eanes.
In the supersized premiere episode, 50 eligible women
will assemble at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum where
they will have only 60 seconds to make a lasting first
impression on one of the NFL's most sought after
bachelors. From there, Travis will have to quickly
narrow the dating pool from 50 women down to 20 before
they are able to move into their lavish Los Angeles
mansion. Once moved in, Travis and his boys will be
deciding who stays in the house and who is sent home
packing. However, there's a twist; in each episode,
Travis will pick one girl who goes on the all-access
group date and it's her decision to strategically choose
which other girls will go on the date with her. At the
end of the group date, Travis decides who he wants to
take on the coveted VIP date. The debate becomes: do you
pick your friends and keep those loyalties strong, or
choose the "weakest" contenders to make yourself stand
out? Lines will be drawn and newly formed friendships
will be tested as the women pick and choose who gets the
extra time with this quirky, fun-loving football
superstar. At the end of each episode, Travis will have
to eliminate some of the girls and send them back to
their home states.
