The CBS summer hit Big Brother show is back, and as Julie Chen promised the twists are better than ever! When the eight new house guests entered the house they had no idea that another eight previous players would be joining them. Porsche & Dominic, clearly already playing the game upon entering, counted the 12 dining place settings and figured there would be more coming. Adam, joined by the others in the Living Room, opened the champagne and all was cozy for the first toast. That is…until interrupted by Julie announcing that they were to pick partners to play the game with. They were quickly paired. Keith picked Porsche, Shelly and Cassi agreed to play together as did Adam and Dominic which left a disappointed Kalia to pair with overly-excited Lawon.
The Houseguests’s were again startled by Julie letting them know another twist was to be revealed. It was, the door bell rang three times, bringing a new returning Duo from seasons past. First Brendon and Rachel, followed by Jeff and Jordan who got a noticeably very warm welcome, then Dick and Daniele. Ushered outside to play the HOH Slippery Hot dog competition of last year, this time with bananas, the eight new house guests were eliminated shockingly fast. At the end, Rachel remained clinging tightly to the top of her swinging perch while Dick & Dani hung from theirs. Dick asked for and got assurances from Rachel that the duo would not be a target for eviction and gave Rachel won the fist HOH.
At the shows closing Julie left the house guests with yet another twist, the Big Brother Golden Key; Eviction nominees would be a duo; Since the duos will be fighting against each other to stay, the one who wins the POV and/or stays will be safe through for the first four evictions and not have to compete. If your partner gets booted, you get a fast-forward to the final ten. CBS has delivered the goods, the first show was held our attention from start to finish.
