Head of Household: Each week, 1 person wins HOH and nominates 2 people for eviction. If the POV holder uses it on the nominees, they have to pick a replacement nominee. At evictions, If it's a tie then the HOH casts the sole vote.
Golden Power Of Veto: - Power of Veto, or POV, is a competition that is held each week after nominations are held. This competition gives one housemate the chance to change the nominees. The HOH will replace any nominee taken off the block.
Twin Twist: Brittney and Lindsey were identical twins and would swap places every week at eviction, playing as Lindsey. If the two survived five evictions without being evicted, they would both enter the game as individuals.
BB Takeover: Each week, a new twist will be released in the house to keep the houseguests on their toes.
Week 1: Double Eviction (The houseguests will play a week's worth of competitions and evicting a second houseguest by the end of the night.)
Week 2: Battle Of The Block (There will be two HOHs who will each nominate two people. The two sets of people on the block will compete against each other for immunity, and in turn, dethroning an HOH.)
Week 3: MVP (America will vote for one houseguest to become the MVP. This houseguest will secretly nominate a third houseguest, in addition to the HOH's nominees.)
Week 4: Partners (The houseguests will divide into teams of two. The teams will become like one houseguest, and will win HOH together, be nominated together, and win the Power of Veto together. However, only one houseguest will be evicted.)
Week 5: Coup d'Etat (During the HOH competition, the houseguests will decide to compete for either HOH or a mystery power. The winner of the mystery power will be sent to the diary room, to reveal the power. Unbeknownst to the other houseguests, the mystery power is something known as the "Coup d'Etat". If the winning houseguest decides to use it, at eviction, they will be able to overthrow the HOH's nominations and put up their own. They will only be able to use this power during Week 5.)
Week 6: Original Big Brother (The houseguests will be going back to the basics this week. They will be given a task, and if they complete, they will each earn $1,000. There will be no HOH, each houseguest will nominate two people to be put up on the block. The two people with the most nominations will be put on the block. America will then vote for who is evicted.)
Have and Have-Not's History
Fourteen brand new houseguests enter the Big Brother House, each prepared for the summer of a lifetime! Julie Chen informs that houseguests of the Takeover twist, and that they will definitely need to expect the unexpected this summer. In the first Head Of Household competition of the summer, the games comes down to Monica and Max. Max says that he'll let Monica win, but only if she promises to keep him safe for the week. Monica agrees, and Max drops out. The house is quickly split, as everyone is looking for the right alliances. Monica, Brett, Karson, Lindsey, Elaina, and Peyton pledge their allegiances to the "Ghost Town Alliance", saying when they're done with the house, it'll be a Ghost Town! They six came together, because they all agreed that they had a good mix of brains and brawn.
Craig and Christa quickly hit it off, and only spend time with each other. Monica experiences great anxiety during her time as HOH, as everyone is looking to strategize with her. She has a minor panic attack. Karson goes to console her. During the nomination ceremony, Monica tearfully nominates Anna-Maria and Max, saying that she feels she cannot trust either of them. At the first Haves vs. Have Nots competition, Anna-Maria, Karson, Max, and Sienna become the first set of Have Nots.After the competition, the house has a clear divide between Monica, Brett, Karson, Lindsey, Elaina, Peyton, Sienna, & Hunter, and Anna-Maria, Max, Juliet, Harris, Christa, and Craig. The top half of the house decides to target Anna-Maria, saying she is very shady.
At the first POV competition, Peyton wins the coveted Power Of Veto. Max begs him to use it on him. Max lies to Peyton, and says that Anna-Maria was wanting to target him. Peyton tattles on him to Monica. Monica then holds a house meeting, and tells everyone that Max cannot be trusted. Max cusses out Monica, then storms off to the Have-Not room. Peyton decides not to use the Veto. Max goes to each houseguest, and tells them that Anna-Maria is untrustworthy. Anna-Maria however, just comments on how hilarious the situation is. At the first eviction ceremony, Lindsey is revealed to be the twin. Lindsey and her twin sister Brittney swap places while casting their vote. Max is evicted in a unanimous vote. He rolls his eyes, and says goodbye to none on his way out. In his exit interview with Julie, he states that he regrets giving up the HOH competition.
Julie Chen shocks the houseguests by telling them that there first Big Brother Takeover would be a double eviction, and another one of them would be evicted by the end of the night. In the HOH, Anna-Maria wins by a landslide. In the ultimate act of revenge, Anna-Maria nominates Monica and Peyton for eviction. Peyton wins his second Veto of the summer. In the POV ceremony, Peyton uses the Veto on himself. Anna-Maria laughs, and puts Karson in his place. After a few brief minutes of strategy, Monica is evicted from the Big Brother House. Her jaw drops, as she went from HOH to evicted in one night. In Monica's exit interview, she explains that she was kind of glad to leave since the house really stressed her out.
Votes For Monica: Christa, Craig, Elaina, Harris, Juliet, & Lindsey
Votes For Karson: Brett, Hunter, Peyton, & Sienna
The house is still in shock after what had happened to Monica. Julie Chen keeps the shock going, by telling the houseguests that this week's Takeover would be "Battle Of The Block". There would be two HOHs, and each would nominate two houseguests. The four nominees would compete in a competition to decide which two would be on the block, and in the process dethroning one of the HOHs. The rest of the week would function normally. In the Head Of Household competition, the houseguests divide into teams to decide the HOHs. Harris and Peyton win, in a close finish. Both HOHs know that the other would nominate someone from their alliance, the only question was "Who?". Harris decided that he would want to nominate weak people, hoping that they wouldn't win the Battle Of The Block. Harris, Elaina, Lindsey, and Juliet decide to form a cross-alliance alliance called "The Secret Service". They tell Harris to nominate Christa and Craig, saying that their showmance is a big threat to the game. Harris is very nervous about the decision. Juliet tells him to go with his gut. Peyton on the other-hand, has a much more relaxed HOH experience. He knows his nominees right off the bat, and is confident in them. In the nomination ceremony, Peyton nominates Anna-Maria and Christa, saying that they are in the opposing alliance and are unlikely to win the Battle of the Block. Harris nervously nominates Karson and Brittney/Lindsey (much to the shock of the Secret Service). He states that they are big threats to his game.
While Karson applauds Harris' move, he is very angry. He goes to the majority alliance and tells them that if Harris is dethroned, they should evict him. In the Battle of the Block competition, Anna-Maria and Christa are no competition to Karson and Brittney/Lindsey, who easily slip out a win. Harris is dethroned, and Peyton is the full HOH. Karson reinforces the plan to backdoor Harris, but the alliance isn't too sure. Peyton (a huge Big Brother fan) begins to suspect that Lindsey may be a twin. He notices that her personality was drastically different from the first week. When he approaches Lindsey (Brittney), she assures him that he was getting inside his own head. But Brittney does tell Peyton that Sienna confirmed to her that she was a twin. In the Diary Room, Brittney laughs at Peyton being so naïve. The Power of Veto competition was no problem for Craig, he easily wins over the other five. Christa is very happy that her BB boyfriend won the POV. In the Power of Veto ceremony, no one is surprised when Craig saves Christa. However, everyone is surprised when Peyton puts Sienna in her place. Peyton tells Sienna that he knows her secret. After the ceremony, Sienna tells Peyton that he's stupid, and she has no secrets. Peyton simply shakes his head, and asks her to leave the HOH room. Anna-Maria knows that she is likely to go, so she goes around the house spreading lies about Sienna. Peyton tells the majority alliance that Sienna is the plan to go, however some are reluctant. In the eviction ceremony, Sienna is blindsided in a 7-2 vote. Brittney and Lindsey switch places while casting their votes, putting Lindsey in the house. In her exit interview, she says that she wishes she could've had a chance to prove herself, and the Peyton is a d-bag.
Votes for Sienna: Christa, Craig, Elaina, Harris, Hunter, Juliet, and Brittney/Lindsey
Votes for Anna-Maria: Brett & Karson
The house feels uneasy after Sienna's eviction. Now, the game has really started. It isn't Big Brother until someone is backdoor'd! In the HOH competition, Hunter wins, with Anna-Maria right on his tail. The bottom of the house is very distraught over Anna-Maria losing to Hunter. Anna-Maria, Harris, and Juliet decide to try and get Hunter to flip on the majority alliance. In the HOH room, Hunter reveals that he's been itching to make a move. The three are very excited to hear this news. Hunter says that he doesn't like very many of the people in the majority. Harris suggests that they evict Peyton, as he seems to be the ringleader. Hunter reveals that Brett and Peyton are really at the top of the majority alliance. Juliet tells Hunter that he should nominate Brett and Peyton, and then Hunter will have his move made. Hunter agrees to his plan. Anna-Maria, Harris, and Juliet are all overjoyed at the fact that they are likely to be safe another week. Anna-Maria still feels uneasy, so she goes to strategize with the majority. They act nice towards her, but none of them are really genuine. Elaina, Karson, and Lindsey go to Hunter and tell him how shady Anna-Maria is. Lindsey tells him that he should nominate Anna-Maria and Harris, since Anna-Maria is shady and Harris won a competition. Hunter agrees to this plan, however he is still unsure of which plan to go with, Anna-Maria, Harris & Juliet's, or Elaina, Karson & Lindsey's. At the nomination ceremony, Hunter decides to not go with either plan and nominates one person from each alliance, Christa and Elaina. While Hunter thought he was doing the right thing, neither alliance is happy with his decision. Anna-Maria goes up to the HOH room, and tells Hunter what a bad decision he made. Karson does the same. Anna-Maria heads into the Diary Room to give a confessional, where she finds an envelope with her name on it. She reads it aloud, and it reveals that she is the week's Takeover! She must nominate another houseguest in addition to Hunter's nominations. Anna-Maria thanks America for selecting her to be the MVP, and makes her nomination. Julie Chen calls the house into the living room, and reveals the week's Takeover. Julie lets the news sink in before revealing that the MVP nominee is............Peyton. Peyton, flabbergasted, takes a seat in the nomination chair.
In the Power of Veto competition, Hunter gleefully wins his second competition of the week. Anna-Maria goes to Hunter to strategize with him, and says that he needs to take Christa off the block and re-nominate Brett. Hunter says that he would do this, but he still felt unsure about the choice. Anna-Maria rolls her eyes and leaves the HOH room. Peyton comes to Hunter and tells him to take him off the block because he was unfairly nominated. Hunter tells Peyton that he'd do it. In the Diary Room, Hunter says that he's like a wheel and states, "Round and round he goes, where he'll stop, nobody knows!". Harris tells Juliet how annoyed he is with Hunter's indecisiveness, and that he should be a future target. In the Power of Veto ceremony, Hunter takes Christa off the block. Anna-Maria smiles, but it is erased when he puts Harris in Christa's place. Now, Hunter had Anna-Maria, Harris, Juliet, Peyton, Karson, and Lindsey angry with him, each with a taste for vengeance. Hunter apologizes for everyone, but defends his game. Juliet tells the house that Peyton should be eliminated, due to his competition prowess. Peyton goes around targeting Harris. Elaina feels confident that she is safe from eviction, but she still campaigns for Harris' eviction. In the eviction ceremony, Peyton is blindsided in a 5-1-1 vote. Lindsey and Brittney swap places, putting Brittney in the house. In Peyton's exit interview, he explains that he is bewildered by what had happened, and that Hunter is very un-loyal. Peyton states that he believes Juliet was the MVP, as he felt she didn't like him.
Votes for Peyton: Anna-Maria, Christa, Craig, Juliet, & Lindsey
Votes for Harris: Brett
Votes for Elaina: Karson
After Peyton is evicted, the house is very unsettled. Julie Chen reveals to the houseguests that week four's Takeover would be "Partners". The houseguests would divide into teams of two, and win HOH together, be nominated together, and win the Power of Veto together. The houseguests were shocked. The houseguests decided to draw straws, to fairly choose the teams.
The partners were as follows:
Anna-Maria & Christa
Brett & Brittney (Lindsey)
Craig & Hunter
Elaina & Harris
Juliet & Karson
The houseguests had mixed feelings about the teams they were put in. Juliet was annoyed that she was put with someone in the opposing alliance. Craig was glad that he was put with someone strong. Christa was saddened that she wasn't put with her BB boyfriend, Craig. The teams competed in their first HOH competition as partners, which involved knowing facts about your partner. Surprisingly, Juliet and Karson knew the most about each other, and became co-HOH's. Anna-Maria congratulated them on their win, and practically followed them to the HOH room. Anna-Maria and Juliet try to appeal to Karson to nominate Brett and Brittney (Lindsey), as they are the only team that has both members in the majority alliance. Karson remains stubborn, and will not agree to nominate people in his alliance. Anna-Maria tells him that it is the smartest move, and will be detrimental to his game if he doesn't go through with it. Karson begins to ignore Anna-Maria explanations, and tells her to leave the HOH room. Juliet becomes annoyed with Karson's attitude. She tells Karson how childish he is acting, but he won't listen to her.
Christa and Craig begin to improve their relationship even more. They are sleeping in the same bed, and don't really socialize with anyone else. Christa and Craig (dubbed "Craista") are becoming intimate, and share their first kiss. In the Diary Room, Christa explains that it was magical, and she even states that she is fantasizing about their dream wedding.
At the nomination ceremony, Juliet and Karson end up meeting in the middle and nominating one of the teams with people from each alliance, Elaina & Harris. Juliet fears that Harris won't trust her anymore, so she explains to him their thought process behind the decision. In the Diary Room, Harris says that while he still believes Juliet's word, he knows he can't fully trust everything he says. Elaina becomes very paranoid about being nominated for the second week in a row. Elaina calls all of the houseguests into the living room, and throws Harris under the bus. Anna-Maria and Juliet roll their eyes. Harris denies everything that Elaina said about him. Karson takes Elaina into the HOH room, and applauds her doings. He says that he was very happy that she is doing everything she can to decimate the other half of the house.
In the veto competition, Elaina and Harris win the Golden Power of Veto. Juliet and Karson fully expect Elaina and Harris to take themselves off the block, and spend a great deal of time bickering about which pair to replace them with. They go back and forth between several couples. In the Veto ceremony, nobody is surprised when Elaina and Harris remove themselves from the block. Juliet apologizes for their decision, and says that she and Karson are going to put Anna-Maria and Christa in their place. Anna-Maria is shocked, and Christa is freaking out because it is her first time on the block for eviction. Craig comforts her. Juliet apologizes to Anna-Maria, and says that Karson is a persistent little b****. Anna-Maria agrees and forgives Juliet. In the Diary Room, Anna-Maria says that she can no longer consider Juliet an ally of hers. Juliet promises Anna-Maria that Christa will leave, however Karson promises Christa that Anna-Maria will leave. Brett and Brittney (Lindsey) decide to align with Elaina and Harris to try and take out Christa. They agree that showmances are too powerful.
In the eviction ceremony, Christa is shocked when she is evicted in a 4-2 vote. She tearfully says goodbye to the houseguests, and gives Craig one last kiss. In her exit interview, Christa says that she wishes she'd played better, and that she loves Craig with all her heart and wishes to continue their relationship. After Christa's exit interview, Julie Chen reveals the Twin Twist to the houseguests. Everyone is shocked, as Lindsey enters the house, and Brittney reveals herself. Julie Chen congratulates the twins, and explains the Brittney is now a full houseguest.
Votes for Christa: Brett, Brittney (Lindsey), Elaina, & Harris
Votes for Anna-Maria: Craig & Hunter
Round 1 (Pre-Coup d'État)
Round 2 (Post-Coup d'État)
After Christa's eviction and Brittney's entrance into the house, the houseguests head into the backyard for the fifth HOH competition. Julie Chen reveals to the houseguests the week's Takeover: they may compete for either HOH or a mystery power that can only be used this week. Anna-Maria, Brett, Elaina, Hunter, and Lindsey decide to compete for Head of Household, while Brittney, Craig, Harris, Juliet, and Karson decide to compete for the mystery power. In a close competition, and a good effort amongst all of the houseguests, Elaina wins Head of Household and Harris wins the mystery power. Juliet is excited, because despite Elaina winning the HOH, Harris had won the mystery power. She and Anna-Maria congratulate Harris on his big win. Harris is shocked that he won the competition. Harris takes a trip into the Diary Room where it is revealed that his mystery power is the Coup d'Etat.
The trio go to Elaina in an attempt to get her to flip to their side. Anna-Maria tries appealing to Elaina's large ego, by telling her that she is too smart to let this opportunity slip. Unfortunately, Elaina was just as stubborn as Karson was in the previous week. The majority alliance (now including Brittney) tells Elaina to nominate Anna-Maria, do her being the everlasting target, and Harris because of his power. Elaina gladly agrees to nominate the two. Due to his BB girlfriend's eviction, Craig realizes he needs to step up his gameplay. Craig goes Elaina to try and tell her who to nominate. He turns his back on his alliance, and reveals to Elaina that Anna-Maria and Juliet are the queen bees. Craig suggests that Elaina nominate him and Juliet, then after the Veto, backdoor Anna-Maria. Elaina likes the sound of Craig's plan. So, at the nomination ceremony, Elaina nominates Anna-Maria and Juliet, who both roll their eyes.
After the nominations, Brittney goes to Anna-Maria, Juliet, and Harris, and tells them that she is willing to flip. Brittney explains that she believes most of the people in the majority to be quite annoying. Anna-Maria is excited at this revelation, and asks who she would like to target. Brittney states the she wouldn't mind evicted any of them, including her sister. The three thank Brittney, but tell her not to talk to them too often, as the majority would likely get suspicious. The three discuss Brittney's allegiances, and agree that she would be a great ally. Anna-Maria says that they could easily pull in Hunter and have a good group of five. At the veto competition, Craig and Elaina's plan is further put into motion when Craig wins the veto. Anna-Maria congratulates Craig, not knowing that he has flipped. Elaina and Craig have a few more discussions, before Anna-Maria points out to the house that they are spending way too much time together. Lindsey jokingly says that he probably replaced Christa with Elaina. Anna-Maria accuses them of having secret allegiances to each other. The house goes to confront them, but they both deny everything. At the Veto ceremony, Craig uses the Veto to take himself off of the block. Elaina puts Anna-Maria in Craig's place, putting the two's plan into motion.
Later, in the living room, Anna-Maria and Juliet are sitting on the couch painting each other's nails. Karson is in the kitchen pouring a bowl of cereal. Karson takes his bowl into the living room, and "accidentally" trips over the couch, pouring the bowl over Juliet's head. He insincerely apologizes, and laughs at her. Juliet sees through Karson, and tells him how stupid he is. Anna suggest that Juliet goes to take a shower, which she gladly does. Anna-Maria then cusses out Karson, before telling him to never mess with her friends. Karson rolls his eyes, then goes into another room. At the eviction ceremony, the houseguests are getting ready to vote. Karson is happy, as he will be able to evict Juliet. Julie Chen tells Harris that this is the only week he can play his power, and that he should rise if he would like to do so. Harris stands. Julie Chen reveals his power to be the Coup d'Etat, much to the shock of the other houseguests. When asked if he would like to take Anna-Maria off the block, he says yes. Because he can't put Elaina or Craig in her place, he puts Brett onto the block. Brett is shocked. Harris then takes Juliet off of the block, and places Karson onto the block. Harris tells the two that they never should've put his friends of the block. Eviction commences as normal, and ultimately Brett is blindsided in a 4-2 vote. In his exit interview, Brett is still in shock. He says that being a floater is not a smart strategy, and will always come back to bite you in the end.
Votes for Brett: Brittney, Craig, Hunter, & Lindsey
Votes for Karson: Anna-Maria and Juliet.
