BIG BROTHER TO BROADCAST A SPECIAL ACTION-PACKED LIVE SHOW, ON THURSDAY, AUG. 20

The Power of Veto Competition; the Power of Veto Meeting; An Eviction; and the New Head-Of-Household Competition Will all Take Place LIVE During the One-Hour Broadcast

  

CBS's BIG BROTHER will air a special one-hour show, featuring a LIVE Power-Of-Veto competition, a LIVE Power-Of-Veto meeting, a LIVE eviction and a LIVE Head-Of-Household competition, this Thursday, Aug. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.

 

During last night's episode, in the aftermath of Chima's eviction from the house by the BIG BROTHER producers for a rule violation, Michele's reign as Head-Of-Household had run its course and another HOH competition, the "BIG BROTHER Invitational," took place.  The backyard was transformed into a miniature golf course.  The ultimate goal for each Houseguest was to putt a hole-in-one.  If they missed, their ball landed at a revolving windmill with various point values assigned to compartments located amid the blades.  All players, except for the current HOH, were allowed to play.  In each round, the player who missed a hole-in-one and ended up with the highest number of points was eliminated.  As consolation, the latest eliminated was able to pick a mystery prize (some good, some bad).  Each time a player was eliminated, they could choose to keep their prize or exchange with another eliminated player's prize. 

 

Jordan was the last Houseguest to remain in the competition and became the new Head-Of-Household.  At the nomination ceremony, she chose to put Natalie and Lydia up for eviction.

 

The 11th season of BIG BROTHER is broadcast three nights weekly, Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and the LIVE eviction show, hosted by Julie Chen, Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT).

 

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day.  Each week the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house.  At the end, the last remaining Houseguests will receive the grand prize of $500,000. 

 

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan and Scott Einziger, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
