‘Celebrity Big Brother’ What is the show about?
For those who have not watched Celebrity Big Brother before, or the original Big Brother reality show, here are the basic rules of the show that you must know.
A group of “houseguests” will stay in the Big Brother house (a closed set) with 94 cameras and 113 microphones running 24 hours a day and keeping continuous watch over the houseguests while they are cut off from the outside world. The goal is to be the last person in the house, which will net the winner $250,000.
While contestants do have the option to take an exit from the show and leave at any time, the traditional way for anyone to leave the Big Brother house is through an “eviction.”
At the beginning of every round, the guests compete for a “Head of Household” title, which provides them with immunity, special benefits and enables them to nominate two houseguests for eviction.
Those two nominated houseguests, the Head of Household and three other houseguests chose at random then compete for veto power, which enables them to save one of the nominated houseguests. In the end, all houseguests besides the Head of Household and the two nominated houseguests, vote on who should be evicted.
Although, when a houseguest is cast out, they are not done. Evicted houseguests form the jury that votes on the winner of the series when it hangs upon the final two houseguests.
We will have to wait and see during the season if any twists to the format are put into place.
