Head of Household: Each week, houseguests will compete for the title of Head of Household at an HOH competition. 1 person wins HOH and nominates 2 other houseguests for eviction. If the holder of the Power of Veto uses it on the nominees, they have to select a replacement nominee. At evictions, in the event of a, the HOH casts the tiebreaker vote to evict.
Golden Power Of Veto: The Golden Power of Veto, or POV, is a competition that is held each week after the nomination ceremony is held. This competition gives one houseguest the chance to change the nominees. The HOH will replace any nominee taken off the block.
Double Eviction: On a certain week, a full cycle of Big Brother will be played out over the course of one night, resulting in two people being evicted from the Big Brother house on the same night.
Face-Off Competition: This season, 2 houseguests will be crowned as Head of Household and they will be responsible for nominating two houseguests each, bringing the grand total to 4 nominees. The nominees will battle against each other in the Face-Off Competition and the winning pair will dethrone the HOH PLUS land the former HOH a spot on the block.
Dethroned Nominee: The HOH that is dethroned must become a third nomination in addition to the other HOH's nominations. If the POV is used on the Dethroned Nominee, a replcement will not be named and the HOH's original nominations will remain the same.

The scene opens up with Julie Chen appearing on the Big Brother stage, eager to begin yet another crazy summer full of twists and turns. She introduces us to the first 8 houseguests (Paulika, Alicia, Maisie, Randa, PJ, Zeb, Jourdie, and Mike). The first four to enter the house were Maisie, Randa, PJ, and Mike. The four quickly entered the house, excited that they each made it into the house they've always dreamed of living in. Maisie states in the first confessional of the season, "I can't believe I'm actually here! Like this is real! I'm such a superfan!" They claim their beds and begin to introduce themselves. As this occurs, the scene is cut back to Julie Chen and the four remaining houseguests. Paulika, Alicia, Zeb, and Jourdie enter the house next. After all the chaos of trying to claim beds and meeting people, the 8 players slowly made their way to the living room. Paulika popped open a bottle of champagne which brought some loud cheers from some houseguests, most notably Jourdie. Eventually the introductions came rolling in, with Jourdie starting it all. He appeared to be somewhat loud and obnoxious but also very snooty to some of the houseguests. Randa even stated in the DR, "I mean he's hot and all, but his personality sucks!" Zeb's introduction also got some people to laugh out loud mainly through the way that he carried himself and presented his speech. Maisie noted in the DR, "He's the kind of guy I'd love to work with in this game! We're very similar in that we're both very goofy and outspoken individuals!" The rest of the houseguests introduced themselves and finally it was Maisie's turn. Maisie introduced herself and many people smiled at her bubbly persona. She then decided to share her story of how she suffers from Type 2 Diabetes since her birth. She lifted the sleeve of her left arm and revealed that she wears an isulin pump on the back of her arm in order to keep her insulin levels sustainable. After she shared her story, everyone clapped and raised their glasses of champagne to toast their accomplishment.
Eventually paranoia began to run rampant amongst some houseguests. They noticed that there 16 plates at the dining room table, but only 8 of them in the house. Some speculated a twist, returning players, and some just thought 8 new people would join them. Eventually, Julie Chen appeared on the big screen and announced that it was time for the first Head of Household Competition this summer, but she warned them that this season, winning HOH could be their ticket out the door. She left them with that and they were headed out to compete. The competition was called Barbe-queued and it required the houseguests to hold onto a rolling log for as long as possible, whilst barbecue sauce is thrown on them. Once the players got into position, it was time for the competition to commence. During the early stages it was clear that Randa, Mike, and Paulika were struggling. Mike was the first to fall and Randa was shortly after. Paulika stuck in there, but she confessed in the DR, "Julie said that winning HOH could also be your ticket out the door. I already know I'm not winning this comp, so why even risk it?" She finally dropped next. After about 45 minutes, it was obvious that Maisie and Zeb were showing signs of struggle. Zeb was next to drop, shortly followed by Maisie. Alicia, PJ, and Jourdie were the remaining 3 and deals started to be dealed out, mainly from Jourdie. Alicia and PJ would not accept any offers, and Jourdie was visibly showing weakness. After about an hour and a half, Jourdie finally dropped, and PJ was quick to ask Alicia afterwards if he was safe. Alicia promised PJ safety and he dropped quickly afterwards, making Jourdie visibly angry. Alicia finally fell off and happily claimed the title of the first HOH of the summer!
The houseguests returned to the house and began to clean off the barbecue sauce that was all over them. Before long, Julie gathered the houseguests into the living room and congratulated Alicia on her win. Afterwards, the scene was set back up with Julie, ready to introduce the second half of the cast. The second half of the cast included Morgan, Siobhan, Leta, Felicity, Griffin, Ali, Rory, and Tristan. The first group to enter included Felicity, Morgan, Ali, and Tristan. When these four entered the house, they were greeted with many hugs and Morgan jumped in excitement that she finally made it to the game. Siobhan, Leta, Rory, and Griffin were the last four to enter the house and superfan Rory also was jumping in excitement and he was even more excited when he met Morgan, who was very similar to him. The houseguests eventually retired back to the living room and introduced themselves yet again. Ali introduced himself and explained a lot about his Egyptian heritage and Tristan immediately rubbed some people the wrong way. Before long it was finally time to compete in the second HOH competition, which was the same competition as the first group competed in. This round of the competition went a lot faster compared to the first group of players. Leta, Tristan, Morgan, and Rory were all out before even half an hour had even commenced. Siobhan was the next victim and she was shortly followed by Ali, who claimed he didn't want to suffer the consequence that being HOH entailed. Griffin and Felicity were the remaining two, and Felicity was visibly struggling. Griffin assured her she was safe and she dropped, giving Griffin the second HOH title alongside Alicia.
When the houseguests re-entered the house, it seemed as if the game was about to intensify. Alicia and Griffin congratulated themselves immediately in the storage room and Griffin whispered they would talk later. Eventually, Julie called all 16 houseguests to the living room and she announced the twist. She announced the Face-Off Twist and how the losing HOH would become a third nominee. She also explained that if the Dethroned Nominee has a veto used on them, no replacement would be made. Many houseguests mouths opened in shock and some in fear. Alicia became visibly worried but Griffin maintained his feelings. Quickly afterwards, people began to separate. Rory and Morgan were seen talking in the lounge room. Morgan explained how Zeb would be a good ally to have in the game, but she pointed out that he is slowly getting close with Maisie on a game level. Rory and Morgan approached Zeb and Maisie and had a very brief meeting. They made a deal and called themselves the Nerd Squad. Alicia and Griffin began to talk about targets and many people disliked Jourdie because of his loud and boisterous personality. Some people even stated that he was a child in a man's body pertaining to the way he acts. Alicia and Griffin agreed to nominate the first man and woman that fell during their respective competitions. The goal would be to get the veto and backdoor Jourdie. In the meantime, Paulika found herself a reciprocating showmance partner in PJ, despite Griffin seemingly to be infatuated by Paulika as well.
Soon enough, nominations rolled around and Alicia and Griffin stuck with their initial plans. Alicia nominated Mike and Randa and Griffin nominated Leta and Tristan. Alicia and Griffin competed in the first Face-Off Challenge of the summer and it was called The Face Off. It required them to each individually create a duplicate of a mask that they had to feel while blindfolded. The first person to correctly make a replica of the mask would keep their HOH status and the other HOH will become the Dethroned Nominee and their nominations will be immune from eviction. In the beginning, both clearly struggled, but eventually Griffin got the hang of it and he successfully beat Alicia, dethroning her and placing her on the nomination chair. Alicia, Leta, and Tristan became the official nominees under Griffin's HOH. Jourdie was still the main target and his antics continued to annoy more and more houseguests.
Eventually it was time for the first POV competition of the season. Griffin, Alicia, Leta, Tristan, Paulika, and Zeb were the competitors. The established plan was also for Alicia to throw the competition to ensure that Leta or Tristan could be taken off the block and Jourdie could be replaced. Despite trying to throw the competition, Alicia's competitive side took over and she actually won the veto competition. This angered many people, however, there was still hope as long as Alicia did not use the veto on herself. Alicia suddenly became very paranoid and she believed that she proved enough that she was a competition threat. She still did not feel safe going into the eviction sitting next to Jourdie, so instead she used the veto on herself, which meant no replacement would be needed. Leta and Tristan became the official nominees for eviciton.
Despite Alicia's betrayal, the house decided it would be best to take out Tristan, because nobody really connected with him. Felicity, on the other hand, devised a plan to frame Alicia and Jourdie. Felicity and Siobhan decided they would throw rogue votes towards Leta to make it seem like Alicia and Jourdie voted together, and potentially have the house think that Alicia and Jourdie were working together. Eventually the eviction came around, and Felicity and Siobhan set their plan into action. Tristan was evicted from the Big Brother house by a vote of 11-2.
Votes for Tristan: Ali, Alicia, Jourdie, Maisie, Mike, Morgan, Paulika, PJ, Randa, Rory, and Zeb
Votes for Leta: Felicity and Siobhan
Following Tristan's eviction, the houseguests competed in their next Head of Household competition, dubbed "A Complete Capshoot", which featured the houseguests each racing to collect specifically marked plastic bottlecaps, launching them on a faux-catapult made to resemble a soda bottle, aiming them towards a bullseye at the far end of the house's backyard. The first two houseguests to successfully launch a bottlecap into the very center of the bullseye, and thus sound a finishing bell, would become the new Heads of Household. With the rules soon explained and the competing houseguests having taken their respective starting positions, the competition was commenced, and soon enough, several houseguests had accumulated a number of plastic bottlecaps to be used, with notably large numbers being procured by PJ, Alicia, and Paulika. PJ and Paulika rapidly began taking a plethora of shots, with Paulika later citing in a Diary Room session how she felt it was extremely important to make sure the house was back firmly under her control. Despite notable competition from these three competitors, Paulika managed to hit the bullseye first, making her the first Head of Household for the week, eliciting a huge happy holler from her whilst the competition still continued in order to name the second HOH. Despite Alicia and PJ continuing to maintain most of the bottlecaps, neither secured an HOH victory for the week, as, with one self-admittedly lucky shot, it was Zeb who managed to hit the bullseye with what he described later as "sheer boggly-woggly luck" and became the second Head of Household for the week.
With Paulika and Zeb being crowned respective Heads of Household, PJ immediately congratulated both, especially giving Paulika a plethora of hugs. PJ cited later in the Diary Room how he honestly felt attracted to Paulika and was ecstatic that she had managed to win HOH for the week. Meanwhile, Zeb was congratulated by the members of the Nerd Squad, namely Morgan, Rory, and an enthusiastic Maisie, with the latter expressing full support in Zeb for the week. Zeb confided with his group that he honestly didn't have a plan of action for the week as he didn't even plan to win the Head of Household competition in the first place. Zeb thanked his group for the support and said he was "taking requests", assuring Rory, Morgan, and Maisie that they were all safe for the week, and soon enough, the meeting disbanded for the time being.
Talk soon diverted to the topic of the two votes to evict Leta earlier in the week throughout the house, with Felicity citing later in her own Diary Room session how she felt that she had achieved the paranoia and doubt that she had intended to create in the house, whilst Siobhan, the other actual hinky vote, noted how it would be important to make sure it would not backfire onto her this week. Later in the day, Felicity herself talked to Paulika individually about how she, according to Felicity, believed Jourdie and Alicia were to blame. Paulika, already feeling threatened by Alicia's competition ability and their strained relationship, agreed with Felicity easily about Alicia being one of the votes. Paulika later confirmed to PJ and Griffin that she wanted to target Alicia for her competition prowess, as well as for Paulika's general distrust of Alicia, to which her allies seemed very much receptive to. Later in the same day, Felicity approached Zeb, Maisie, and Morgan about her suspicion of Alicia and Jourdie as per her plan. Zeb thanked Felicity for the information before the make-up artist left. Both Maisie and Morgan stated that they did not trust Felicity's enthusiasm in pointing the finger at Alicia and Jourdie, to which Zeb agreed with not believing Felicity was being completely open with them. Maisie soon proposed her own theories, stating she felt that Felicity must have been one of the votes to evict Leta at the last eviction ceremony. Zeb asked both Maisie and Morgan about who they thought the other vote was, to which Maisie said she thought it could be someone like Randa, whilst Morgan said it was most likely actually Jourdie due to his consistent clashes with others in the house, although secretly, she admitted in her own Diary Room session that she felt that Jourdie was too much of a wildcard as well as not pleasant to be around, influencing her to throw out his name to Zeb. Zeb thanked both for their opinions, although he seemed a bit more vocal about Maisie's theory. Maisie soon thanked Zeb and left the room, to which Morgan then asked Zeb if he thought that Maisie was being too eager to push the blame off onto Randa. Morgan stated in another Diary Room session that she thought this could be a chance to try and get a target onto Maisie's back, seeing her have seemingly more influence on Zeb than Morgan herself, further cementing her distrust of Maisie. After a considerable amount of conversation with Morgan, Zeb seemed to buy Morgan's newly proposed theory of the two hinky votes in fact being Felicity and Maisie, which Morgan tried to convince to nominate despite their alliance with Maisie. Zeb was immediately apprehensive and unsure of what to do, stating that he didn't even want to be in this position in the Diary Room, saying that he trusted both Maisie and Morgan, but wasn't sure who's plan he desired to use in this moment.
A while later, Zeb attempted to talk to Paulika about potential targets, to which Paulika feigned comparing notes with Zeb, citing later in the Diary Room that she desired to target Alicia, and as far as she was concerned, this was her HOH, only truly relaying this intention to Zeb and nothing else about her nominations, causing Zeb to seem, as he later put it, "absolutely miggly-biggly mind-blown" at Paulika's apparent lack of cooperation despite their joint Head of Household status. Zeb assured Paulika that they could both accomplish their goals, to which Paulika thanked Zeb for. Later that week, at the nomination ceremony, Paulika nominated Alicia and Mike for eviction, whilst Zeb decided to nominate Felicity and Jourdie, surprising the make-up artist considerably. Soon enough, the two pairs of Alicia and Mike and of Felicity and Jourdie competed in their next Face-Off competition, which featured the houseguests working to toss and catch buckets of food-coloring-dyed water to one another, with the goal being to fill up their team's tank and win the competition, dethroning the Head of Household who nominated them. The competition soon started, with Alicia immediately showing hustle and securing a lead for herself and Mike, despite effort from Felicity and an audibly frustrated Jourdie. Alicia and Mike maintained the lead and soon won the competition, filling up their water tank first, and dethroning a less-than-enthusiastic Paulika, leaving Zeb as the sole Head of Household for the week, and leaving the annoyed catering supervisor as the third nominee for the week alongside Felicity and Jourdie, the latter of who chucked his bucket to the other end of the backyard in frustration, stating in his later Diary Room session how he felt that he must be the target this week and he may have lost his chance to stay in the house.
With Paulika nominated and the ever-zany Zeb now being left as the reigning Head of Household, most of the house seemed content to keep the nominations the same and thus desired Zeb or someone other than the nominations to win, with the exception of the nominees themselves and PJ and Griffin, both of whom said they would make sure Paulika would be taken off of the block despite Jourdie being the presumed target of the house for the week due to his attitude. Later that week, at the Power of Veto competition, Zeb, Felicity, Jourdie, Paulika, as well as Ali and Maisie selected by random draw, competed in "Ve-Towed", which featured the competing houseguest to search a pit of toy plastic cars for miniature tow-trucks marked with the Power of Veto symbol, using them to navigate several other designated cars on three individual tabletop mazes, with the first person to finish securing themselves the Power of Veto for the week. Despite visible, albeit erratic, effort from Paulika, Jordie managed to win his first competition of the summer, narrowly finishing ahead of Maisie. Jourdie celebrated his winin the Diary Room, saying that "this has got to be the best I've felt since the beginning of this game. I know the house wanted me out, but now I'm not going anywhere this week", giving a huge smile throughout.
With Jourdie likely to veto himself, the Nerd Squad and some of their allies discussed the need of finding a replacement nominee. Zeb discussed the options with his allies Maisie, Morgan, and Rory, as well as growing ally Ali, who had begun to gain trust from many people throughout the house, as well as Siobhan, who had seemingly escaped blame from the prior eviction vote and secured a bit of trust herself, with much of the Nerd Squad seeing her as a somewhat motherly figure. It was at this time that Zeb noted his interactions with Paulika and how she seemed completely unwilling to work with them, to which some members of the group noted how Paulika and PJ seemed to have a showmance in the house. Maisie suggested that Zeb simply nominate a pawn such as Randa or Leta in order to flip the house and vote out Paulika, and Zeb stated he would consider it. Morgan, however, once again attempted to convince Zeb that Maisie could be a good target for the week, laying out her case to Zeb, and the exuberant waiter once again felt a great deal of confliction, weighing his options. At the Power of Veto ceremony, Jourdie opted to unsurprisingly save himself with the POV, leaving Zeb with the responsibility of naming a replacement nominee, to which Zeb ultimately apologized as he nominated Randa as the replacement, leaving Felicity, Paulika, and Randa as the finalized nominees for the week.
With Randa, Paulika, and Felicity being left on the block and further spread of the mutual suspicion of Felicity in the house, PJ and Griffin solidly both stated to Paulika that they would be voting for Felicity to be evicted, with PJ even saying that the house seemed united and on-board to evict Felicity from the house. Meanwhile, further meeting within the Nerd Squad and its affiliates prompted discussion whether it would be wiser to evict Paulika and break up a strong, competition-adept power couple, or evict Felicity for being seemingly untrustworthy. Maisie and Siobhan both advocated for Paulika to be the one evicted. As eviction night loomed, further tension continued to build between Alicia and Paulika, with the latter eventually calling out Alicia on being a supposed liar, prompting Alicia to state later in the Diary Room that she could not wait to see Paulika be evicted if she continued to go on this seemingly random antagonization. Alicia herself volleyed back, telling Paulika that she didn't understand why she didn't like Alicia this much, to which Paulika simply continued to claim Alicia was a liar and fake, causing Alicia to leave the argument annoyed. Jourdie even chimed in, telling Paulika that "she shouldn't be complaining because she at least has votes to stay unlike himself", to which Paulika told the country club employee that she didn't ask for his opinion and he should keep it to himself.
Throughout the remainder of the week, Paulika began to feel more and more paranoia, causing her to rush to secure votes to evict Felicity, telling people individually and with PJ how she could not be trusted, with people such as Leta, Randa, and Mike continuing to believe that this was the will of the majority as well. At the live eviction, Randa thanked the house for an amazing experience and stated she hoped she could stay in the house for longer, whilst Felicity made another pitch to the houseguests for her to stay, saying that she was not a threat and would be helpful to many of the houseguests' games if she was allowed to stay this week. Paulika, however, used her speech time to call out Alicia once more for her deceptions, telling the house about how they should keep her in to take out the threat in Alicia, as well as attempting to refute Felicity's claim that Felicity was not a threat, and that the house should evict her instead, eliciting a sigh from Alicia and an eye-rolling smirk from Felicity, as well as a number of awkward glances and expressions from the other houseguests. The live voting was then commenced, and it first became revealed that Randa has received zero votes to evict, thus meaning that she was safe, thus leaving Felicity and Paulika still vulnerable to be evicted. Soon after, however, it was revealed that it was Paulika who had become the second houseguest evicted by a vote of 7-4-0, stunning a good portion of the house, especially PJ, Griffin, and a visibly upset Paulika. Paulika gave Griffin and PJ hugs, as well as a kiss for the latter, whilst Alicia wished Paulika a fond farewell as the catering supervisor exited the Big Brother house.
Votes for Paulika: Ali, Alicia, Jourdie, Maisie, Morgan, Rory, and Siobhan
Votes for Felicity: Griffin, Leta, Mike, and PJ
Votes for Randa: -None-
Following Paulika's eviction, the remaining houseguests competed in the next HOH competition, minus Zeb who was the outgoing HOH. The competition was called Seagulfing and it required the houseguests to hit a ball with a golfing stick down a slightly downhill ramp with some obstacles in the way. At the end of the slope are multiple numbered slots. The two houseguests to score the highest scores will be the next HOH's. If there is a tie for any of the HOH's, there will be another shoot off until one person has a higher score. Early on, Felicity gained a surprising victory when she scored the highest possible score. As the line dwindled down, multiple people switched back and forth for the second slot. Eventually PJ earned a spot in second. Leta was the last person to take a shot, and she impressively managed to stay alive as she tied with PJ. This immediately caused PJ and Leta to go into a tie-breaker. During the tie-breaker, it was Leta that scored a much higher score and earned the spot as the second HOH, alongside Felicity.
Felicity and Siobhan celebrated Felicity's win and they wanted to make sure at all costs that she would remain HOH for the week. Felicity wanted to narrow her target down to either PJ or Griffin. After a conversation with Leta, Leta agreed she'd be okay with losing the HOH if she was completely safe this week. Felicity agreed to whatever Leta said, when in all actuality she wanted this HOH to do some real damage and get Griffin out of the house. When the time came for nominations, Felicity nominated Randa and Griffin, with Randa acting as a pawn. Leta nominated Alicia and Jourdie.
