Moving Night Part 1
June 24
They come from all walks of life, but mostly from the west coast or the northeast. They're people like you and me, except mostly work-a-day stiffs under 33 who are looking to get their 15 on the telly. But in 80 days time, they will have the same answer to the age-old question: "What did you do over the summer?" It's June 25, and the house is open.

Let's meet this year's crop of shut-ins.

As you should know by now, there are two rules in Big Brother:

1) Expect the unexpected.
2) Get to the end by any means necessary.

Speaking to the first rule, there are three new twists this year, one we reveal off the bat - The BB Takeover. We'll learn more about that later. Right now, it's time to meet the first 8 Houseguests to move in: James, Jace, Meg, Audrey, Austin, Shelli, Da'Vonne, and Clay. Shelli's kinda sweet on Clay. Da'Vonne lies about her occupation. Meg looks like Taylor Swift. James doesn't sound like your stereotypical Asian.

Audrey's getting the girls (Shelli and Da'Vonne) together, but they don't mention the word "alliance". Though that's what they're thinking. Speaking of the girls, Audrey has communicated for the first time openly of her transition. Da'Vonne loves that Audrey's drawing them in.

"Big Brother House! This is Julie. You are live on CBS. Please do not swear." Julie reveals the first twist of the summer: Battle of the Block is back. You could go from being HOH to evicted in the same week. Each week, two HOHs will be crowned, and they will nominate two people. Those couples will compete, and the winning duo will dethrone the HOH who nominated them AND guarantee their safety. But in the meantime...

HOH COMPETITION #1: Flying Tomatoes (sponsored by BB Films' release UFOh NO!) (hosted by Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier)

After the players decide to sit someone out Da'Vonne (on the promise that no one nominates her), all seven players are left to stand on planks above a red carpet while catching tomatoes from critics of the new film "UFOh NO!" (C-Note: spoiler alert... it was TERRIBLE! Which means that Pepper's going to want to see it OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN). Fall off your platform, and you're out. First person to catch 10 tomatoes will be the first HOH.

Meg, Austin, and Clay are the first players to fall off their planks. After a long time, James leads with 8... when everyone takes a dive. We're going to have to go to the action replay...

WINNER: JAMES (was the last person to touch the red carpet)

Meanwhile, the houseguests walk into the house as victims of a bad B-movie... premiere. But there's another twist... each and every week.


There will be new twists every week. At the sounder, all houseguests are to report to the living room, where they will learn what twist will be in effect that week.

There is a THIRD twist that only AMERICA will know: one of this year's houseguests is playing this game with their identical twin. If they can survive the first five eviction, they will earn the right to compete as individuals.

In the meantime, Becky, John, Steve, Liz, Vanessa, and Jason... Pack your bags. You're moving in TOMORROW.
